I have not decided whether this is a joke or not.

Those pesky internets

Funny how everything spoken into the record by public people, like senators, gets captured and posted to the internet:

Mr. McCAIN. Madam President, the amendment before the Senate is a very simple one. It restricts the use of campaign funds for inherently personal purposes. The
amendment would restrict individuals from using campaign funds for such things as home mortgage payments, clothing purchases, noncampaign automobile expenses,
country club memberships, and vacations or other trips that are noncampaign in nature.

The broad perspective

My Canadian friend Jeremy posted this item on his blog about the TrooperGate reporting.

News here in the US is getting more and more sensationalistic on all sides. The volume and smoke surrounding the election is getting worse. I would encourage people to read all 3 articles to get a better perspective.

On thing that mitigates this is getting new from multiple sources, as well as getting it delivered that way all the time. I really like The google Reader allows you get this type of news daily. Any feed reader can accomplish this.

Breaking news: Palin abused her power as Gov. in the Monegan firing. Big surprise there.
She claims that she didn't get to talk to the investigation.. AFTER refusing to testify/speak to the investigation.. wow, really?

McCain has to talk his voters down, after people have been yelling "Terrorist" and "Kill Him" at McCain and Palin campaign rallies. He had to take the microphone away from a woman who called Obama an arab. Having to explain that Obama is a good man, and you "don't have to fear him".


Call me not very surprised that McCain voters don't already know this. I am surprised that he is having to talk them down. Now, I am NOT implying that all conservatives / McCain followers are stupid or racist. There are however a large number who are one or both. People who are paying attention to the "Who is the real Obama?" nonsense and not the economic meltdown. Anyone who yells "Kill Him" at a campaign rally is both stupid and racist.

Hello???!!! The Secret service protects both McCain and Obama. I would imagine the Secret service would pay attention to those type of things.

New DVDs

We just got the new Iron Man DVD.

They were good enough to include a whole DVD of special features and a few hidden scenes. What was disappointing was that there was no iPod version of the movie. I see on iTunes that they will be selling that for another $14. I am quite disappointed. Transcoding another of copy of the movie and including it on the 2nd (special feature disk) is something i would have expected.

This disk we were going to buy anyway. Based on the popularity of the movie (servers that support the blue-ray version crashed in the first 2 days) i'm not very surprised they didnt include it and will charge an additional fee to get the ipod version.

I won't however condsider buying DVD's without ipod versions included as a special feature.

Do you hear me movie companies? :-P Fork over the additional content.
