4/27    "Obama the first Asian-American president?"
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090427/pl_afp/uspoliticsobama100daysasia
        Just like the way Clinton was the first African-American president.
        \_ Two wars, a banking, housing, and general economic crisis, a truly
           massive deficit, and now, Swine Flu.  Has any president except for
           Lincoln and Roosevelt faced worse?
           \_ Clinton faced impeachment for an affair with an intern who was
              fat and who wasn't even pretty compared to the average
              twenty-something.  IMO that was worse.
              \_ The two situations don't even seem comparable to me.  One
                 is a media "crisis", whereas the wars, economy, deficit, and
                 flu are real threats to the country.  Even Nixon's situation
                 wasn't so dire a threat the the country:  that was just
                 removal of a criminal from office, not "jeesus, we're
                 all fucked."
                 \_ just curious, what made you write this response with
                    any degree of seriousness?  - !pp
                    \_ A cynical belief that a lot of people REALLY DO
                       think that sexual pecadillos such as Clinton's
                       are that important.  Look who voted for Bush in the
                       last election.  Rabid religiousity is rampant in
                       this country, to our great detriment, and I know
                       from experience that motd commentators are not
                       all immune from religious rabies.
                        \_ See the post on "Who would Jesus torture" above
                           and ask yourself, am I wrong to be cynical about
                           rabid religiousity?
              \_ What does her looks have to do with it? Would impeachment
                 have been okay if Clinton's intern had been better looking?

2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in
        point, Caesar, Napolean, GWB, etc. Why is it that people

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.

2/20    Ok serious question, NOT political.  This is straight up procedural.
        Has it been declared that we didn't find WMD in iraq? (think so).
        So why did we go into iraq (what was the gain), and if nobody really
        knows, why is nobody looking for the reason?
        \_ Political stability, military strategy (Iran), and to prevent
           Saddam from financing terrorism.

8/5     Regarding NKorea relesing the journalists, here's what I think the
        actual deal between Kim and Obama is:
        - Both agree that Kim needs to save, or gain, face to pave the way for
          his son's succession and for NK's stability.
        - Both agree that Obama doesn't like losing face by publicly
          apologizing.

2/27    CA unemployment increases from 9.3% to 10.1% for Jan
        \_ Good thing the legislature passed the biggest tax increase in
           history!  That should solve it.
           \_ because cutting taxes has done such a great job so far!
                \_ it has.. giving mortgages to poor folks did us in

2/3     Well said: "What gets people upset are executives being rewarded for
        failure. Especially when those rewards are subsidized by US taxpayers."
        \_ Turns out, he gets it.
           \_ Talk is cheap.
              \_ Freedom is strength.
        \_ Isn't this something like FDR might have said?

        \_ What is this guys source for data? Overall employment in the
           Federal Govt shrank during the Clinton years, but state govt may
           have more than made up for that, I don't know.
