Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Date: August 11, 2006

Another Interesting development…

Seems that an anti-Gore Internet video on YouTube wasn’t designed, according to the Wall Street Journal article by a 29 year old living in Beverly Hills. The IP address came “from a computer registered to DCI Group, a Washington, D.C., public relations and lobbying firm whose clients include oil company Exxon Mobil Corp.”

Well, well, well… A little bashing of an environmentalist? Very interesting…

Exxon claims they had nothing to do with the video — Big surprise there! Wish I had seen that coming!

Difference between Liberals and these new Neo-Conservatives (who just think they are, but they aren’t), stuff like this.

Paramont — the distributor of Mr. Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” — created a YouTube video, but they had the decency to put their name on it.

God Bless!

Thomas Coughlin has to stay home for 27 months….

Don’t know about you, but I know for a fact if I stole $500,000.00 from my company, I wouldn’t be so lucky to get house arrest! I can’t believe this is what he gets because of “fragile health”? Please, if I was dying of cancer, the judge would put my butt in jail. Some sentence.

Hey, anyone know if there’s any truth to the union busting he’s claiming? I know Wal-Mart, like a certain ex-owner of a Kenosha trucking company, hates unions.

Funny, tho’. I just heard that Wal-Mart in China is unionized. They didn’t have a choice or something. Don’t know if that’s true or not, but it makes it interesting.

God Bless!

Arrests Bolster G.O.P. Bid To Claim Security as Issue – New York Times

What a load of crap!!! (Make sure you read the whole article)

According to the article, “U.S. government officials say there were two phone calls made from London to the United States recently by suspects. Those calls were tracked down and investigated, but there is no evidence of any involvement of people in the United States in the alleged plot.”

What does that mean?

It means that our safeguards aren’t working. It means that the Republican controlled government STILL cannot protect our citizens.

It means they investigated phone calls and still didn’t uncover this plot. It means we should be grateful to the Muslim community in Britain. Because we didn’t stop this, they did.

It means that for all their big talk about being tough on security and their smokescreens, the REPUBLICANS are throwing money down a hole and we’re not any safer than we were when we bombed (without support from anyone but Tony Blair) Iraq.

It means that we have spent billions upon billions and Al Queda is still coming up with ways to blow our planes out of the sky.

Isn’t that a scary thought?

Aren’t you glad that George W. Bush and his Washington Republican friends have our backs?

Doesn’t it make you sleep better at night?

It shouldn’t.

God Bless

Traveling…

Cheryl and I will be going to Door County after Labor Day, as per our usual vacation plans. A co-worker of Cheryl’s gave us a card to get a special friends and family rate at a hotel. Well, the special $49.00 per night rate wasn’t available at all for the week we want to stay.

Okay, fine.

Next, I went to priceline.com, Travelocity and hotels.com to check out their special rates. Well, they were all in the 95 – 105 range. There is no way I’m paying that much money for a hotel room when I know the place will be more than half empty because basically no one is visiting Door County the week after Labor Day. And, I mean nobody! That’s why we go there. Lots of room, rarely have to stand in line and the hotel swimming pool all to myself. Plus, the weather is still nice.

Now, later in the month, when the leaves start changing, well, then there are a lot of people there and the hotels can charge more. But, don’t even try to convince me that you would rather have the room empty than allow me to pay a lower rate.
Anyway, I called the Comfort Inn, where we stayed last year. The hotel has wireless access, friendly service, clean and an indoor pool — everything I need for a vacation. Plus, there are fridges & microwaves in the rooms. Well, I didn’t get the $49.00 rate, but I did get a fairly good rate.

So, it just pays to call the hotel direct rather than rely on a website.

God Bless
