Magic Votes, Closed Doors, Heart Tones and a UNIX Admin in Wallstreet

85% scrap abortion plans after hearing heart tones.
The CMR blog reported that an executive director of a Community Pregnancy Center named Candice Keller said in the Middletown Journal that 85% of expecting mothers who are considering an abortion change their minds after hearing their baby’s heartbeat. So the abortion industry wants to close down pregnancy centers or prevent them from exposing the mother to hear the child’s heartbeat. The comments on the combox produced a suggestion to have kids go on field trips to see an ultrasound machine and even hear the heartbeat of an unborn child. I thought that was great because it will prevent the tragedy of having a mother tricked into murdering her child thinking that it was only a blob of flesh. And I won’t wait for the school field trip. I will show my daughter how a baby develops on the web and let her hear the heartbeats there.

20 million Democrat supporters from scratch.
It’s not from scratch really but from illegal aliens. Just give them amnesty and you get new voters.

Watching the nation get screwed.
This ping-pong tactic to ram the healthcare reform obviously subverts the democratic process. Then it is blatantly kept in the dark, contrary to the president’s promises. In the face of such a travesty, I wonder why the opposition sits there watching helplessly while twiddling their thumbs. Why don’t they stand up and walk-out to protest this mockery of the legislative process?

Exploding underwear and a UNIX admin in Wall street.
One of my buddies was a UNIX System admin in Wall street. When a server goes down, he has 15 minutes to bring it up. If he fails, he’s out because, millions of dollars would have been lost during that time. How about the admins who were supposed to keep the terrorists out? Do they have more than 1 strike? That underwear bomber could have crashed the plane in Detroit killing thousands of Americans. How much would that loss be in dollars?

Rice not Steele. Time for the brother to go.

Recent comments of Michele Steele does not inspire confidence at all. But greater odds have been surmounted in the past. Just think about George Washington as he led his beleaguered and battered strugglers on a winter march and crossed the Delaware for that decisive stand. What we have now is such a welling of popular support that anyone else will be more than optimistic about the GOP victory. Is Steele’s loyalty is with his homey in the oval. Does he feel unappreciated that his support for the party is half-hearted to say the least? I think he’s already jaded and cynical, so it’s time for new blood. I say bring back Condi Rice and let her lead the party to take back America.

Variety: Stock Opportunity, Used Electronics, Living Large

Live like a millionaire without spending a cent:
The single leading pastime of the richest Americans (net worth of >$10 million) is spending time with their children or grandchildren.  I think we can all do that and know how it feels to live like a millionaire.

Investment Opportunity from Stimulus:
$3.4 billion of stimulus funds will be used to modernize the power grid to better accommodate renewable sources e.g. solar & wind.  The likely benefeciaries of this are companies that increase energy efficiency e.g Ener-NOC, Esco Technologies Inc. & Echelon Corp.

Used Electronics Bought:
Sears, Walmart & Costco are giving gift cards for used cell phones, cameras, laptops & other electronic devices.  Go to  sears.gazelle.com, walmart.gazelle.com or costco.gazelle.com for details.
