President Bush has decided to veto Childrens Health Insurance. Washington DC is in trouble. The tax cuts for the super rich are in play. We see a sad future when childrens health care is cut to provide tax cuts for the rich, a sad day indeed.

Newt will not run

Former Speaker of the House - Newt Gingrich, will not run for president. He decided this when he was not able to raise $30 million he need to run. It is doubtful anyone can win entering this late in the game.

Companies not paying overtime

In the current environment of DOWNsizing and OUTsourcing, many workers are DOWN and OUT. Those lucky enough to still have their jobs are forced to work more than forty hours, often sixty hours per week, but not paid overtime. If they complain they are then fired for "performance reasons" and not eligible for unemployment.

Companies not paying overtime. They are using excuses to make people work more and more whle they pay less and less. The result is that many workers that used to be paid hourly are now salary.

Republican Debate at Howard

Today there was a Republican presidential debate at Howard University. Four candidates, Rudy, Mitt, Fred, and John chose not to appear. The reason is that they do not feel that their views are welcome there.

We can only hope that this mistake will not damage the Republican party.

Debt ridden video rental company Movie Gallery closing 520 stores

As business moves from bricks to clicks, more and more movies rental stores are closing down. Movie Gallery closing 520 stores and placing emphasis on getting rid of weak outlets.

Netflix slashed prices to gain market share. The new move is to send video over the net. That way you do not have all the overhead of a store.

NASA creates computer model for other Earths

NASA has found that most planets near us are gas giants like Jupiter and Saturn. Small planets like Earth are rare. There are also no water planets.

This is sad, but we will keep on looking to see if there is another Earth out there. NASA has not yet found an Earth like world.

Iranian Leader Addresses Students

The Lion of Iran will roar today in New York. He talks peace, but his actions are to build WMD. How can we believe that he wants atoms for peaceful purposes? Are we that foolish? Only time will tell.

I predict that they will soon be a military confrontation between Israel and Iran. It is bound to happen.

It would break the heart of an English teacher

In a move to make their city more edgy and trendy. The new logo for clowntown miami, I mean Downtown Miami is a hot pink - DWNTWN MIAMI. They intentionally do a mizpellin.

Scary to see the future. We now consider dropping the "O" to be trendy. I wonder what is next.

NBC offers free downloads of shows

The wonderful internet makes watching your favorite TV programs an utter joy. NBC will offer free downloads of its TV shows that will contain commercials inside. The age of TV over IP is here.

All you favorite NBC TV episodes will soon be available for download. NBC used to sell each episode over at Apple Itunes, but later decided to go it alone.

Japan launches lunar probe

Back to the moon, oh so soon. Japan has launched a lunar probe in what will be the first lunar exploration since Apollo missions of the 60's and 70's.

It is exciting to see rockets going to the moon again. Hopefully, people will soon go to the moon.

Olympus Evolt E-510

The digital SLR cameras have taken over. No longer do you see film cameras, but now we have the Olympus Evolt E-510 with digital image stabilization and choice of lenses to take professional pictures.

Each year brings better digital picture, but soon the day will come when digital pictures are better than film.

Google Adds Presentation Tool

Google Docs already has a spreadsheet and word processor, now a new presentation tool has been added to help compete with Microsoft Office. This is a big plus for sales people who might have to do changes to a presentation over the internet.

This new tool will make life easier for people who use the internet. I hope Google will create a tool to compete with the old Frontpage.

Payday Loan

Payday Loan Rescue is a company that offers quick cash in a flash. Sometimes we need money for a big emergency. For example, this year I was in an accident and the body shop wanted $850. This may not seem like much, but I knew I need my vehicle up and running. The rental car was costing $25/day.

The advantage of a payday loan is that you can get cash for quick emergencies. A regular bank loan takes a long time to approve. Friends can loan you small amounts such as $20 if you forgot your wallet, but for a big crisis event a payday loan is like a lifeboat in the ocean.

Payday loan rescue is better than a payday loan store because it is open 24/7 and you do not need to drive miles to the store. This is a temporary solution to your cash flow problem.

If you need a some quick cash, you should apply today for a super fast Pay Day Loan.

Oil at record high

Today oil broke the $80 barrier. It is causing the economy to slow down as well as driving inflation. People are forced to pay at the pump more and more. The price of gasoline will soon reflect the high priced of oil. Refiners will be forced to pass on the high costs to customers.

My suggestion is the electric car. We still have hydro power and inexpensive electricity. Using an electric car can save you money. Plug in hybrids are the future.

Slot Machines in Miami?

A supreme court case will determine the future of slot machines in Miami, Florida. There are three potental places they can appear {Calder racetrack (horses), Miami Jai-Alia, and Flagler Dog Track}. Miami may have casino action sooner than you think.

Virtual Worlds

Playstation now has a new virtual world called "HOME". This 3D world is filled with avatars and reminds me of second life. It is the future.

OJ arrested

Yes folks, it seems that OJ Simpson was arrested today. We are not sure what the charges will be. This has nothing to do with the death of his ex-wife or her friend Ron Goldman. That issue is still unresolved, but rather with a strange set of circumstances in a Las Vegas casino.

It is alledged that OJ was involved in an armed robbery. By the way, OJ's book about the death of his ex-wife is out in bookstores. It is called "If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer"

War protest march

Many arrest in war protest against the Iraq invasion. The several thousand demonstrators looked like an old Vietnam anti-war march thru the streets of DC.

Army veteran Justin Cliburn, 25, of Lawton, Okla said "We are occupying a people who do not want us there," Indeed he is so correct.

Google offers $30 million prize for first lunar rover

Yes folks, you can win 30 million bucks if you land a lunar rover on the old moon. However, all you astronaut cowboys need to know that the Rover must safely land on the moon and beam back images and video back to mother Earth.

So, what are you waiting for?

Killacycle Inventor Crashes at NextFest. He is still in the hospital. The electric motorcycle could do 0 to 60 in one second. His throttle got stuck and he cashed into a minibus.

Dollar Decline increases

We have a dramatic decline in the dollar. We face a terrible time when the green pieces of paper lose their value. The ticker is down down down. The ten year bond is being sold.

Official Kilogram losing weight

The official standard for weight is itself losing weight. It has lost about 50 micrograms. Strange, how this did happen. Perhaps we need to study this new phenomena.

Science itself becomes inexact if we cannot refer to a standard for weight that is fixed.

Obama tells Bush - Don't invade Iran

It seems he knows some thing that we do not. Obama told Bush - Don't Invade iran.

Guess things are getting kind of cold around here. Can some body close the window? I feel a draft coming on. I'm not talking about a tall cool.

Apple sells one millionth iphone

Yes folks, the tech titan APPLE has scored a big one with the iphone. Today Apple sold the one millions iphone, just 74 days after the big debut. A heady time in history to see new technology.

I predicted years ago that Apple would dominate in the high tech cell phone market. That day will soon come. Get ready for other products such as the iCar. You are laughing? Remember how people laughed about the ipod and iphone? Are they laughing now?

Who could be president in 2008, besides Hillary?

Romney, is number one in Iowa, he holds a 12 point lead over both Thompson and Giuliani in the Hawkeye State, 28 percent to 16 percent.

Mitt also bests Rudy in New Hampshire with a 5 point lead, 28 percent to 23 percent. So the mormon is the man to beat. Sadly Thompson is trailing badly and does not have the cash to close the gap.

In other news, McCain is fifth in Iowa behind 4th place Hucabee.

Mercedes S300

New luxury hybrid sedan from Mercedes gets 44 mpg. This is the future with smart fresh energy efficient cars that are durable and efficient.

We need a small economy car that uses hydrogen and is easy on the wallet.

DOW up 180 points

The fed says they are going to cut rates again so the market did rally. Still, we are seeing a false rally. The financial markets are crashing and they will take the dow down with them.

See this video on the SP500.

A left-wing guerrilla group known as the People's Revolutionary Army, believe to be linked to Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden may be responsible. The stock market is taking a hit as this means higher gas prices. Right now, mexican police are investigating.

Wall Sized TV

There is now a 110" TV that uses very little power, WALLTV is here. This new big sized 1080p is the future. We do not have to wait for walltv, it's here.

osama says attack soon

It seems that our bad boy osama is again making noises about attack. We are worried about the bearded militant muslim. Perhaps it is all smoke, but where there is smoke there is fire.

The whole thing about his the message that he did announce so near September 11 gives me an eerie feeling like he might be up to no good as usual. We should catch him and bring him to justice.

93 Elm St

A 32 year old woman on 93 Elm St was using the internet to advertise teenage girls to clients. One of the girls, a sixteen year old, run away and found police. She said that the clients were mostly over sixty. They were old and nasty.

Mummy of Inca Girl Sacrificed to the Corn God

A museum in Salta, Argentina has the well preserved mummy of an Inca Girl sacrificed to the corn gods on display. Many native groups are opposed to the display and want her buried.

This we preserved specimen shows us what life was like in pre-columbian days. The mighty Inca empire stretched from Argentina to Peru. It was one of the biggest empires in the world. A strange mystery is that this mighty empire did not use the wheel. It has been found in childrens toys, but no practical use was made.

Also although llamas were used as pack animals, they did not pull sleds or carry people.

Will he stay or will he go?

Senator Craig R-Idaho is now having some second thoughts about leaving. He wants to stay until the investigation is over. The senator was accused of soliciting in a mens room by tapping his foot.

The senator claims that did not occur. He want to stay on as in his position because a fellow senator Arlan Spector told him to fight. We are going to see some interesting evidence.

Dow Down Again

If fell almost 250 points today, 249.97 to be exact. The housing market is affecting the stock market. It appears that we are in for some stormy weather. Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo said today "The current downturn in the U.S. housing and mortgage markets is certainly the most severe in the contemporary history of our industry,"

Still, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Some say that the markets will recover in early 2009. Perhaps, but this is not good new for people facing foreclosure.

Fuel price rise

Yesterday I paid $3.099 for each gallon of gasoline. The price of fuel is rising. This is bad for the economy because it means that there is less money for other purchases.

People are forced to pay sky high prices for fuel.

300 mpg car

Yes folk, step right up, here it is the fabled amazing economical 300 mpg car. It is real. Actually, it looks like an airplane without wings. The price is only $20,00o so even the lowly proles can afford one. Strange place, the future.

Flying cars in your future?

In the future there will be flying cars. People will use unconventional domains of transportation. Our current system of roads and bridges will be replaced by aerial transport.

The Moller Skycar is but one entrant into the already crowded field of would be flying cars that will one day fill our skies with joy.

Oil prices are near record high

Oil will soon go over $80/b as the demand continues to increase while production of oil goes down. We will soon face gasoline prices that are at all time highs. I predict over $4/gal gas before the end of the decade.

Also, hurricanes will damage the offshore oil platforms reducing our supply of petroleum products.

In other news, cat 5 hurricane Felix slammed into Nicaragua, and do serious damage. This super storm is part of global warming causing more killer hurricanes.

Yes folks toilet paper is now going to be a thing of the past as we use new high tech toilets.

Housing cost for poor on rise

Even with the dramartic decline in the price of houses, the housing costs for poor people are still going up. The number of poor people who pay more than 50% of their income on a house has increased.

This is a major problem for low income household who had dreams of owning a home. Also interest rates are now going up for low income individuals if they can even find a loan.

The corporate plan to replace US truckers making $50,000 a year with mexicans making less than $5000 per year is now underway. Mexican trucks will be allowed on US highways.

Big biz wants to crush the little guy. Bush is working on integrating Canada, US, and mexico into the North American Union or NAU. He also wants to replace the US dollar with the amero.
