McCain apologizes for remarks about ‘wasted’ US Iraq troops

Republican presidential hopeful Senator John McCain apologized Thursday for remarks that some critics interpreted as undervaluing the service of US troops in Iraq.

Late Wednesday, while announcing his plan to run for the presidency on the late night comedy-variety Late Show on CBS television, McCain said about the Iraq war: “Americans are very frustrated and they have every right to be. We wasted a lot of our most precious treasure, which is American lives, over there.”

Another Spineless Weasel Runs For President

May 2007: Boycott America Month?

Why revolution is the only viable solution

Our Government has degenerated to the point where the vast majority of the people of this country can be opposed to a certain issue and the people in power will just keep on pushing it with completely disregard. When they run into resistance they spend billions of dollars of our money on propaganda to lie to us about the issue.

OK. First the RIAA. Then Sony. Then our country.

That’s 3 2 months done.

We could have had May free if all of you had done the right thing.

Update: April 2007: Cancel Sony Boycott

Should we move up the May action to April?

Maybe I should start a Category for this?

It got me with this Subject: You’re embarrassing yourself here!

And I thought: Oh shit. Someone’s sussed out the blog!

Then I opened it to find a JPEG for a penny stock and this opening text:

You just can’t get away from your, “I will screw him in the ass” obsession, can you? The Black Donnellys follows the lives of four working-class Irish-American brothers and their involvement in organized crime in New York City.

Signs of neglect are everywhere: mouse droppings, belly-up cockroaches, stained carpets, cheap mattresses.

It’s convenient for you.

Creativity has no price!

Desperation kills. If you’re desperate, it shows. It shows your belief in needing something and it looks simply terrible. Desperation shows weakness, and that’s when you get pushed and taken advantage of the most. What do you think will happen if you normally price your designs at $300, never get hired, drop your price in a promotion to $150 (cut them in HALF), and you finally get a client to even ask you how much you charge. The client won’t hire you for $200, they’ll bargain it down, using your desperation against you, probably cutting it in half to $100. Why do you agree? Why do you cut your price in the first place? If you can’t get hired for the price you think is right, then that means you have some knowledge to catch up on. If you don’t have a portfolio, you have to make one, and in the meantime experiment with your creativity, new effects, new styles – everything.

The attitude of “I have to get this, you have to hire me because I need this!” is the worst possible thing to get trapped in.

I’ve been there. I call it being in The Shit.

There’s no cure except to go through it. Trouble is, for some people (ooh, me! me! me!), it can make you mean. You see the cruel side of people in power. You discover people who you thought were friends never were. Forget the disappointment, forget the disillusionment. The worst part, worse than the humiliation ever could be, is the self-realization that you’ve been a dope before stepping into The Shit. Reality wasn’t what you thought it was. You’ve been walking around the fucking Holodeck!

Just wanted to throw that in. What? You expected some wise advice? Feh!

Steve Jobs Kept Saying “Unbelievable”

Apple Says IPhone to Sell Since Free Phones Worthless (Update3)

When asked how the Cupertino, California-based company estimated the market of opportunity for the iPhone, Cook said Apple rejected traditional approaches that call for comparing the product to devices sold in a similar price range. Apple plans to offer two iPhone models priced at $499 and $599.

“That kind of analysis doesn’t make really great products,” Cook said. “The iPod would not have been brought to market if we would have looked at it that way — how many $399 music players were being sold at that time?”

Go look at the video of the iPhone intro at Apple’s site.

I’m hoping that when I put out my $600 plus the cost of the contract, I’ll also exclaim in delight, “Unbelievable!”

I’ve been using a $20 ThiefoneTracfone. I’ve been saying “Unbelievable” too — in disgust!
