Senate Approves Delay in Switch to Digital Television
Does anyone know where this initiative comes from in the first place? The first I heard about it was, of all places, in my state election package sometime last summer. Only in the last month have we had the bane television here so I don’t know how long broadcasters have been talking about it. Who benefits from this? I find the measure unusual to say the least….

Hully gee, another Bush appointee was corrupt as the day is long. Who knew? Move your own damn Buddha lady…

Have you given real thought to what the new President’s intentions are in Afghanistan? You really should.You can see the quagmire from here.

Just remember kids, The Bailout Works

NSA whistleblower Tice suggests credit card companies also shared data with the NSA

Telecommunication companies, such as AT&T and Verizon, are embroiled in lawsuits over their alleged cooperation with the government’s warrantless surveillance. If credit card companies and banks also provided information without a warrant, it’s conceivable they could face a courtroom challenge as well.

What? Get the credit card companies to acknowledge what they are doing about anything ever? Yeah right. Right up there with the insurance companies they are. (The credit industry in this country is absolutely criminal in my estimation.) The two industries are about the two most corrupt or prone to corruption non-governmental agencies in the country in my humble…..

And lest you think I’m letting you get away without reducing your opinion of humanity, 93 year old man froze to death after utility company turns off power – the absolute best part? The city manager blames his neighbors (not, you know, the utility) for the death. Huh?
