Dirty Tricks? Look-Alike Websites Lure Congressional Donors

toupsie Deception? (157 comments)

If you are going to whip out the credit card to spend a little money, take a little time to read all the text on the page. It was in large type that it was a donation to defeat the candidate. How many times in the past have we seen cute, cleaver and obscene assaults on congressional candidates on the Internet? Just google Santorum.

If you like your fake congressional candidate website, you can keep your fake congressional candidate website. Its political speech.

27 Reported Killed In Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

toupsie Re:Somebody's got to say it (2987 comments)

Why should the solution to a tragedy be to punish people that were not involved? I would appreciate that you not give up my constitutional rights for me. Our Government is already doing a good enough job eroding those. We don't need private citizens demanding the Government do more.

Apple Quietly Releases Safari 3.2

toupsie Apple loudly released Safari 3.1 (129 comments)

Its odd that Apple released this version quietly. Last time a major point release was available, Steve Jobs was walking down the streets of Cupertino firing a shotgun into the air screaming, "Time to download the next motherf*cking version of Safari!" followed by USC Trojan band playing John Philip Sousa marches.

(Useful) Stupid BlackBerry Tricks?

toupsie Ping a Blackberry from any e-mail account (238 comments)

What to know if your employees have their Blackberry turned on? Send an e-mail to it with the subject "<confirm>" (without the quotes, of course). The Blackberry will send back a confirmation message with the time and date that it received the message. This is also a good way to test if your BES server is delivering messages in near time,

Gov't Computers Used to Find Info on "Joe the Plumber"

toupsie Re:Okay so the info is out there... (793 comments)

Did Joe the Plumber make over 250k last year? Will Obama be giving him a tax break, totally invalidating McCain's point about Obama raising JoeThePlumber's taxes?

That wasn't the point of Joe's question. Joe stated he wanted to buy a business and hoped that his hard work would bring in more than 250K. Obama stated that he wanted to take that success and spread it to people that made less than Joe hoped to make with his business acquisition and hard work.

It's one thing to say you want to "tax the rich" to fund the government, it's another when you want to do it to give other people the money, i.e., "Spread the Wealth".
