More data than you can shake a stick at. Useful for term papers, or wasting away the hours!

pc31, I heard this too ... it was some guy on Fox News trying to stir up fear and hatred about the Domestic Peace Corps that Obama wants to start up. It's not a security organization at all, it's something like teenagers after high school who give up 1 or 2 years volunteering for their country domestically (roads projects, rebuilding infrastructure, building a new energy grid; or volunteering in inner city schools) get something in return like free college, etc.

Remember - the only thing the losers in this last election have is the ability to peddle fear ... don't believe anything like that unless you can verify it in something that is not like Fox News or the Drudge Report, or other things like that.

Is it too early to start talking about 2012?  ;D


Huckabee Lashes Back, Settles Scores
Out this week: Do The Right Thing: Inside the Movement That's Bringing Common Sense Back to America by Mike Huckabee.
From Political Wire

Time calls it "at once a memoir of his campaign, a treatise on the ills of the Republican Party, and a blueprint for his own political future." The book is also "filled with sharp words for fellow Republicans who frustrated his bid for the party's nomination."

Mitt Romney "comes in for the roughest treatment... He notes that Romney declined to make a phone call of congratulations after Huckabee beat the oddsmakers to win the Iowa caucuses, 'which we took as a sign of total disrespect.'"

He also "calls out Pat Robertson, the Virginia-based televangelist, and Dr. Bob Jones III, chancellor of Bob Jones University in South Carolina, for endorsing Rudy Giuliani and Romney, respectively. He also has words for the Texas-based Rev. John Hagee, who endorsed the more moderate John McCain in the primaries, as someone who was drawn to the eventual Republican nominee because of the lure of power."

More Obama geekery, from http://blog.wired.com/geekdad/2008/11/5-signs-preside.html

Quote
5 Signs President-Elect Obama Is a Geek

...2. [Obama] is a big fan of Star Trek. He said himself: "I grew up on Star Trek. I believe in the final frontier." And, when Leonard Nimoy was the guest on NPR's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" in September, he said that he had run into "one of the presidential candidates" and that that candidate had, upon seeing Nimoy, given him the Vulcan salute. He refused to name the candidate, but said he "was not John McCain." (Ed. Note: not to mention, he is the best example of the strength of IDIC we've seen in a long time)

I like this from the comments:

Ah! He knows what an integer is... Unlike other candidates and even senators.

Not to mention governors. Speaking of which, this is Sarah Palin at a Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony in Wasilla a few days ago. Watch the guy in the background.

Yup: that's the contraption they use to kill turkeys. Great stage managing, governor.  ;D

Not that I know of.  It's all a fabrication to placate the people.  Like soma (from "A Brave New World").

I hope it's not Sarah Palin!!!  She needs to stay home and be a mom to her Disabled child.
