Walking Around Sense


This is how it is done. Dems take notes:


Obama had to know these fucks where never going to play ball. I'd like to think he set them up to oppose very visibly (which they have) and us now ready to pull the rug out.

We shall see.

Democrats Seem Set to Go It Alone on a Health Bill -
"WASHINGTON — Given hardening Republican opposition to Congressional health care proposals, Democrats now say they see little chance of the minority’s cooperation in approving any overhaul, and are increasingly focused on drawing support for a final plan from within their own ranks."


And this is the dumb-fuck leading the creation of the health care plan.


Baucus is sold-out awful with added paranoid now.

Max Baucus Is Scared Of "The YouTubes":

"' There were a couple of people in the crowd 'with YouTubes,' Mr. Baucus added (meaning cameras), and he posited that the agitators were paid and probably from out of state. ('I could just sense it,' he said.)"

That's OK. They can just 'enroll' (and by 'enroll' I mean have a credit card and a heart beat) at the University of Phoenix Corporation. No ACT score needed.

ACT prognosis: 23% could earn C, at best, in first-year college courses -

"Just 23% of students, up from 22% last year, earned test scores suggesting they can earn at least a C in first-year college courses in English, math, reading and science, says the report, released today by the non-profit Iowa-based testing company ACT. It's based on scores of 1.48 million 2009 high school graduates who took the ACT's college entrance exam."

This is gonna lead to a world of hurt.

MS penchant for ripping off code may bite that ass big-time this go around.

I'm sure the judge will grant an extension, though.

Microsoft asks judge to keep Word on the market : Christopher Null : Yahoo! Tech:
"Microsoft appears to be taking with deadly seriousness the threat that Microsoft Word could be forced off the market in October, following a judgment against it on patent infringement issues over its use of XML.

Filing an emergency motion with the court, Microsoft has asked for a stay of that ruling while Microsoft attempts to remove the functionality that got it in trouble with Canadian software company i4i. In its petition, the company claims that it is 'expending enormous human and financial capital to make its best effort to comply with the district court's 60-day deadline,' but implied that the changes it is making to take the software out of violation of i4i's patent could take months.

If Microsoft can't re-engineer Word before October 10, and if the courts don't grant the company a stay of the ruling, the fallout would likely be catastrophic not just for Microsoft but throughout the computer industry. Retailers would be forced to remove packaged copies of Word (and Office) from shelves, and PC makers would have to remove Word from any preinstalled bundles that come with new computers. With Windows 7 rolling out just days after that deadline, the potential mess that could be generated is almost unfathomable."
