Cranky Computer

My computer has been rather cranky the past few days.  I'm sure it's Bush's fault.  I finally cleaned the cache, deleted emails, ran the clean-up program plus PC Pitstop, and de-fragged.  It seems a bit happier now.  That's about the limits of my computer expertise.

My post on Draw Mohammad Day had some insightful comments that I wasn't able to post a reply to, and I apologize.  I'm going to go back and re-read them and pull out the highlights for a post.   

In Case you Missed It:

Does Obama Want to Destroy America?  Yes, But...  by Warner Todd Huston, really sums up beautifully many of the things I've been saying.  In order to understand what is going on you must first start thinking like a typical liberal, which is really not thinking at all.  My husband always says, "liberals are people who haven't thought things through."  How true!  

Of course, we're only talking about the garden variety "loose on the streets" liberal.  There's much more to what's going on than some dim-witted politicians not kissing us first (if you know what I mean!)  No siree - just keep digging around, read your history (a bit of time spent on Woodrow Wilson would be a good start), and a fuller and more colorful picture will begin to emerge. 

How about this little tidbit from the Cato Institute?... 
Costly IRS Mandate Slipped into Health Bill
Most people know about the individual mandate in the new health care bill, but the bill contained another mandate that could be far more costly.
A few wording changes to the tax code’s section 6041 regarding 1099 reporting were slipped into the 2000-page health legislation. The changes will force millions of businesses to issue hundreds of millions, perhaps billions, of additional IRS Form 1099s every year. It appears to be a costly, anti-business nightmare.
Even with my computer hiccupping along the past few days, I still managed to read Old Bob's posts Letter to a High-school Girl (all four parts.)   A friend's high school age daughter asks Bob to tell her about his experiences of the 1960's.

Since Bob and I are about the same age, it was refreshing to read a trek through the 60's that almost mirrored mine.  Those of us who grew up mainly in the 50's are really the last to have lived in a time that was relatively sane.  I believe that many of us who are 65 or over, view today's world with a much more profound sadness than younger people are able to.  We were witnesses, and in some cases willing participants, in turning society upside down and inside out. 

Take a few moments and read his fine posts.  Here's the link to the first letter.  When you've finished glance over to your left and you will find the other letters in his archive.

Quotes of the Day:
I’m sick and tired of Obama and the White House coming out with yet another new crisis that has to be fixed by government sticking it to the people and taking more of what we earn and produce. Instead of allowing our small businesses especially to keep what we earn… But see, to many in the White House including our own president, I don’t know when they’ve run a business. I don’t know when they’ve been a CEO where they had to look out for the bottom line and they had to make payroll and live within their own means with a budget. They’re from government. They’re community organizers. They’ve been spending other people’s money for so long that the free enterprise principles that all of us believe in, it’s all foreign to them.  Sarah Palin on the Sean Hannity program 4/27/2010

Here's the proper rejoinder to all the hysterical demagogues in Mexico (and their sympathizers here on American soil) now calling for boycotts and invoking Jim Crow laws, apartheid and the Holocaust because Arizona has taken its sovereignty into its own hands:
