The Inet is not falling..but if you have not updated your a/v do so now. This is a destructive virus.

Michelle Malkin: OUR RIGHT TO SECURITY

Benjamin Franklin says it perfectly, “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

It continues to amaze me conservative bloggres continue to pander to gov’t to protect them. I am a conservative and the responbility to protect myself and my family is on my shoulders. The Anti-Christ want folks to think that the gov’t can do everything and unfortunatly this drumbeat falls right into Big Govt’s clutches.

Power Line: Disengagement, American-style?

Sure looks like it to me. If this is what they are saying then they have gone further away from the conservative ideals they profess. We should not legitimize the terrorist state led by hamas in any way shape or form. Congress’s reaction to break ties is exactly what is called for. Captain’s Quarter’s has a perfect perspective on this.

FoxNews.com

I quote:

A new provision tucked into the Patriot Act bill now before Congress would allow authorities to haul demonstrators at any “special event of national significance” away to jail on felony charges if they are caught breaching a security perimeter.

Sen. Arlen Specter , R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sponsored the measure, which would extend the authority of the Secret Service to allow agents to arrest people who willingly or knowingly enter a restricted area at an event, even if the president or other official normally protected by the Secret Service isn’t in attendance at the time.

It gets better though:

So I can’t enter this place after the VIP is gone? Is this nuts? Who cares..the person is gone? Amerika continues it’s march folks.

Under current law, the Secret Service can arrest anyone for breaching restricted areas where the president or a protected official is or will be visiting, but the new provision would allow such arrests even after those VIPs have left the premises of any designated “special event of national significance.” The provision would increase the maximum penalty for such an infraction from six months to one year in jail.

Now with powerline, the captain’s quarters..among other fellow conservative bloggers pushing for renewal..how can they continue to do this when stuff like this is found? Wake ya’ll. You are being taken for a ride by the republicrats and demopublicans. I am curious if they simply can’t see or don’t want to see?

Well my wife has a double ear infection plus a headcold..i caught her head cold and our daughter i think caught it too..:( My wife’s ear infections are proving resistant to normal anti-biotics. Keep us in your prayers that we can all get healed..soon..:)

I apologize. WordPress 2.0 is a nightmare of bugs. Trackbacks don’t work hardly at all among other things. The forums are alight with problems. Unfortunatly there’s no way to go back to the older version. Posts here will be lean as i can’t link to other blogs if trackbacks don’t work so it will be jsut when i ahve something personal to post. I’ll let everyone know when wordpress decides to get the bugs fixed.

ABC 7 News – Senate Votes To Overturn Veto On Wal-Mart Bill

Oh please. So i guess when i get to 9000 employees i’ll just move the business out of maryland. This is stupid and it will cost jobs. Lets hope the override in the house fails.

*UPDATE* it appears Wal-mart has the same idea. I quote an article on msnbc.com: ?We believe everyone should have access to affordable health insurance, although this legislation does nothing to accomplish that,? said Masten, who said the retailer may partially pull out of Maryland because of the bill.

I bet WM will pull out enough to get below 10k employees and stay there. That’s 7k jobs gone. Nice try Unions and Dems you just screwed 7k people.

*UPDATE2* other bloggers have jumped on this as well.

MIchelle Malkin, The Political Teen, Soccer Dad. Below the Beltway to name a few.

*UPDATE3*

Msnbc.com distorts things again calling Wal-Mart stingy and saying that Wal-Mart’s probably removal of jobs formt he state is retaliation. I quote from the article here:

The practical effect, for Wal-Mart and for Maryland, was far more murky the day after the General Assembly overrode Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.’s veto of a bill effectively requiring the retail chain to improve its benefits or pay into a state fund.

No one could say yesterday how much Wal-Mart would have to pay, whether the new law would pass legal muster or whether the company would move a planned distribution center to Delaware in retaliation.

Read on into the article to see the socialists therories behind this attack on Wal-Mart and other large coporations.

I am not sure wordpress’s trackback function is working. testing

trackback testing..:)

FOXNews.com – Politics – Vampire Candidate ‘Won’t Hide Evil Side’

What’s disturbing is that this guy will get some votes.

Bank tape lost with data on 90,000 customers – Computerworld

How many times will UPS have to loose this kind of thing before they get sued? I am sure the other courier compnies have done this too. UPS just happens to be inthe new lately since theirs are apparently hig-profile losses. Also, why don’t these banks and whtnot simply use an employee to deliver the stuff? There’s a better way..encrypt the information and send it via a dedicated encrypted VPN data link.

Well one client of mine(a non-profit that i do IT work for on a volunteer basis) jsut took the plunge and bought a new server. I found one at the dell outlet for less than 1/3 of the price for just the hardware. I also got special pricing on the software and licenses we needed from MS. All in all instead of 6k for hardware and software the total cost is going to be closer to less than 3k. God really come through in our prayers to get us these at the best possible price..:)

Choice in cable channels? Debate heats up. | csmonitor.com
Minority and religious cable networks are working to stop a la carte pricing.

In a newspaper column, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, whose ministries run a cable/satellite channel, wrote that it “threatens to purge Christian broadcasts from the vast majority of US households…. In our zeal to protect our children from ‘Sex and the City,’ we should not adopt policies that would prevent millions from hearing the gospel.”

As Christians we do not rely on manmade things to get the Wrod out. The fact that Falwell is preaching that exact thing is disturbing. We don’t need to dpend on something man has made int erms of how cable channels are allocated. If hte Lord wants you on TV HE will make it happen no matter what the channel selection environment is.

Microsoft provides more specific system requirements for Vista | TG Daily

A 3 ghz cpu and a gig of ram just to boot? Holy cow! So you’ll really need at least 2 gigs of ram to use the computer as anything more than a web browsing platform. 10-1 says 4 gigs will be really needed for those of us that truly use our computers..:)

Well a long time client of mine just called in and said he wants to build up the rest of his network. It is going to be a couple of thousand dollars in hardware and a couple thousand in software. This one is not charity work..:) I will be looking at probably close to a thousand in cosultation fees when it is all said and done.

Well this rocks. The wordpress upgrade gave me a seamless way to import my old blogger blog posts. Now the clenup of duplicates begins but I am enthused I can finally integrate the old blogger posts in my blog here..:)

I wonder how many other “features” like this WMF backup excution routine in case of failure there are? Given MS’s track record I bet we are going to hear of more of this kind of attack. I am curious if the Linux kernel, Linux Apps and other Unix Operating systems and apps have this issue?

The Tech Report – Dell & NVIDIA unveil Quad SLI-certified PC

You want a firebreathing machine? Take a look at this monster. Dell actually takes an Intel cpu and overclocks it and then puts in two dual gpu nvidia card in sli mode. Dual core cpu with quad gpu in sli. This should be a barnburner of a box.

Power Line: The source of our disunity

The source of our disunity on the conservative side is that conservative bloggers have somehow swallowed the lie that we need to give up our liberties for security. This is a liberal/communist posistion almost and certinaly not the conservative/limited government I was taught and that is inside the Bible. Our disunity is that folks are waking up and the larger conservative bloggers are in danger of stepping into the same pit as the MSM that they like to slam. The disconnect they are showing is like the MSM/left’s and it is growing quickly. I hope they and their readers wake up before it is too late for this country.

Windows XP Home: obsolete sooner than you expect

I have always said XP Home is crippleware. It is simply a cut down version of XP Professional. January 1st 2007 is the date for security fixes to end right now. I have always advocated running XP Professional. This article explains why in painful detail.
