9/24    Gosh, why do we even have Proxy Vote for stocks? It's not like any
        of us commoners have any power. Look at this for example where
        the Board of Directors vote against all commoners' wishes:
        02. PROPOSAL FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE ADOPTION OF THE FISCAL YEAR
           2008 EXECUTIVE BONUS PLAN.
           Directors Recommend: FOR <--- uh, DUH, they want my MONEY
        03 .  PROPOSAL TO RATIFY THE SELECTION OF ERNST & YOUNG LLP AS
           INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM OF THE COMPANY
           FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING MAY 31, 2008.
           Directors Recommend: FOR <--- uh, DUH, they suck
        04 .  STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL ON THE AMENDMENT TO THE CORPORATE
           BYLAWS ESTABLISHING A BOARD COMMITTEE ON HUMAN RIGHTS.
           Directors Recommend: AGAINST <--- uh, DUH, human rights will
                                             get in the way of PROFITS
        05 .  STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL ON AN OPEN SOURCE REPORT.
           Directors Recommend: AGAINST
        \_ Duh, of course the recommend stuff that lines their pockets.
           Sheesh.  This is direct plutodemocracy.  You vote with your
           dollars.  Don't have as many dollars = less voting power.  Why
           should someone who invested $100m into a company have less say
           than you who dropped $5 in?

10/7    In practice, how long are HIGH SCHOOL transcript kept? I'm asking
        because I'm wondering if people can dig up my shady past.
        I was a bad kid.
        \_ I would doubt that they are ever destroyed. What would you
           do about it in any case? Try not to worry too much about
           things you have no control over.

           \_ Nobody would vote for a pres candidate with such a bad taste.

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

6/8     I cannot believe Carly Fiorina is a legitimate candidate. I would
        sooooooo love to vote out Boxer, but Carly completely ruined HP.
        \_ The Republican party shall rise again!
