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.

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?

12/22   What the deal with flyng a confederate flag?  I always assumed
        it was a symbol of racism, but some people seem to do it so
        casually that I'm not sure that's it anymore.
        \_ it's a southern heritage pride thing, which oftens involves
           the flag waver ignoring how pissed off a brown person might
           get about it.  whatever, i don't care, i'll never live anywhere

12/8    Partha, I'd be interested to know how you do on this:
        http://www.americancivicliteracy.org/resources/quiz.aspx
        I bet you're in the 90% or above...
        \_ That's not a very hard quiz. I'm not particularly big on politics
           or econ, and I managed 30/33.
        \- i got 30/33 too. #33 is not a good question.

8/20    Germany wins a bunch of equestrian medals. Are Germans richer
        than Americans? Expensive sports man.
        \_ Germany has three luxury automotive brands.  US has zero.
        \_ الله أَكْ!
           \_ Cadillac qualifies. Possibly so does Lincoln. However,
              Germany has 4: BMW, MB, Audi, Porsche. Ford owns Volvo and

3/28    I like this quote the best
        "If the Chinese are wrong to hold on to their province of
        Tibet, then Lincoln was wrong to insist that the South stay in
        the Union. and we ought to immediately either grant the
        American Southwest (and California) independence, or else give
        it all back to the Mexicans.

Kim Jong Il Funeral: Thousands Mourn in North Korea (ABC News) Kim Jong Il Funeral: Thousands Mourn in North Korea (ABC News) Mourners lined the streets of the North Korean capital Pyongyang today, crying and wailing as the funeral procession of their "Dear Leader' Kim Jong-Il, marched slowly through the streets. But a curious detail was that the boxy black hearse that crept through the light snow was a vintage Lincoln Continental. The choice of a US-made luxury car seems odd for a country that preached a belligerent self reliance, reviled America and was put on President George W Bush's Axis of Evil list. com put the year of the Lincoln at 1976, making the 35-year-old vehicle older than North Korea's 23-year-old new leader Kim Jong-Un. The choice of an American luxury car for his final ride is consistent with Kim's tastes, despite his regime's propoganda depicting the US as evil, dangerous and violent, and his history of antagonizing numerous American administrations with threats of war and nuclear weapons. Kim was reported to be a big fan of Hollywood movies, with favorites including the slasher flick "Friday the 13th" and Sylvester Stallone's action film "Rambo." He supposedly owned both in his collection of over 20,000 films, many of which starred his favorite actress Elizabeth Taylor. One of his most prized possessions was said to be an autographed Michael Jordan basketball, presented to him by then Secretary of State Madeline Albright at a rare high point in North Korean-American relations. Revelers cheer at midnight in Times Square on New Years Eve, Saturday, Dec. Some revelers, wearing party hats and "2012" glasses, began camping out Saturday morning, as workers readied bags stuffed with hundreds of balloons and technicians put colored filters on klieg lights. North Koreans arrive to lay flowers in front of a portrait of the late leader Kim Jong Il outside a stadium in Pyongyang as people paid respects to him on New Year's Day Sunday, Jan, 1, 2012. Portland, Oregon o 3 days ago We should feel sorry for this fool who sent a chef around the world buying his food and the country was starving, give me a break please..... skrualla 3 days ago I would seriously love to see that car skid to a halt, with the casket sliding off on to the hood and then falling sideways, while opening up on the street throwing Kim Jong il's body into an open sewer drain.
