Just Another Random Monday v.12.7.09

* – remember Pearl Harbor.

* – don’t get me started on the Falcons yesterday. Ugh. I don’t think Saintseester‘s boys have anything to worry about this coming Sunday. 😦

* – do people even think when they name their businesses nowadays?

* – I am now the proud owner of an HTC Droid Eris cell phone. With all due respect to iPhone users, this thing effing kicks ASS!!!

Seven screens of customizable goodness. That’s all I’m sayin’.

* – I can’t believe they’re getting rid of this. I only had those lame bookmobiles when I was a kid!

* – cuz there’s no such thing as too much bacon.

* – so I heard some moron comment on the whole Tiger Woods thing by saying that his wife must have been doing something wrong, otherwise he wouldn’t have cheated on her.

HUH?!?!?!

A man cheats, and it’s the woman’s fault?! Umm, no. If it’s that bad, the man files for divorce. If it’s not that bad, he keeps his dick in his pants except when he’s alone with his wife.

Any questions?

And now…

(you knew it was coming, didn’t you?)

… on to the political portion of our show:

* – sorry, Glenn Beck haters, but just because he’s lost some big-name sponsors doesn’t mean he’s going away anytime real soon. :p

* – seven stories Barack Obama doesn’t want you to hear.

* – so a man who has earned the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Silver Star, and the Bronze Star (among other military decorations) has to fight to put up the American flag in front of his house?!

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!

* – say, by any chance, does anybody have a spare COP15 ID card lying around?

😉

* – speaking of the climate summit currently taking place in Copenhagen, can we possibly take the hypocrisy to any higher of a level? 1,200 limos and 140 private aircraft producing the same amount of CO2 as a town of around 150,000 people to cart around all of these morons demanding we do something about “climate change.”

Oy.

* – “climate change is cyclical, people. Period. Full stop. End of story. And the cycles have little, if anything, to do with man-made issues. Remember, almost 35 years ago they thought we were coming up on another ice age.

* – from Newsmax magazine:

Despite Sanctions, Iran to Head U.N. Group

“Just days after the United Nations reprimanded Iran for its nuclear program, a U.N. body elected the Islamic Republic as chairman of its next year-long session.

The chairmanship is just one of a number of leadership positions Iran holds in the world body, despite its stubborn flaunting of demands to halt its uranium enrichment efforts.

On Friday, Nov. 27, the U.N. nuclear agency’s board censured Iran, with 25 nations backing a resolution that calls on Tehran to immediately mothball its newly revealed nuclear facility and heed U.N. Security Council resolutions calling on it to stop uranium enrichment.

Iran is already under three sets of Security Council sanctions over its nuclear program.

Iran remained defiant after the censure, with its chief representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declaring that his country would resist “pressure, resolutions, sanction(s) and threat of military attack.”

Then on Wednesday, the Vienna-based, 53-member Commission on Narcotic Drugs — the U.N.’s central policy-making body on drug-related issues — elected Iran chairman of its next session.

Iran will be represented by Ali-Asghar Soltanieh, the diplomat who represents Iran at the IAEA, according to CNSNews.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., an outspoken critic of the Iranian regime, declared: “The U.N. allowing Iran to chair any agency should cause the U.S. to reconsider how much of a commitment we have to the U.N.”

Iran is also expected to be picked to chair a conference of another Vienna-based U.N. agency, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

The U.S. withdrew from the UNIDO 13 years ago over differences with its policies, but the Obama administration is said to be considering rejoining the organization, CNSNews reported.

Rep. Rohrabacher said: “We should not be a part of any agency the U.N. permits Iran to lead considering that decision reconfirms what the U.N. is really all about.”

Other U.N. leadership positions held by Iran include:

  • President of the executive board of the U.N. Development Program for 2009.
  • President of the executive board of the U.N. Population Fund for 2009.
  • Vice-chairman of the U.N. General Assembly’s Committee on Information for 2009-2010.

In the height of irony, Iran in 2007-2008 was vice-chairman of the U.N. Disarmament Commission, which deals with nuclear and conventional arms reduction and non-proliferation.”

Any questions as to why I want the U. S. to get the hell out of the U. N.?

* – the news health care bill? Just consider it tough love:

  1. When we get together next (when will that be, anyway? I’m actually suffering Falcon withdrawal), you’ll have to show me your phone (I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!). I’m a little bothered by one of the Droid’s ad campaigns (“substitute “hairdo” for “can do”? Really?), but it looks like a cool gizmo.

    OH! That reminds me! I need to update your contact information in MY phone…

  2. “I’m actually suffering Falcon withdrawal…”

    Yeah, I have that effect on women. 🙂

    The Droids are pretty sweet. Verizon sells the one I have from HTC, plus another one made by Motorola. “Droid” is short for Android, which is the OS that Google came up with to compete with Windows and Mac. The way I see it, there’s a couple of advantages the Verizon Droids have over the iPhone:
    1) being on the Verizon network instead of AT&T (voice coverage is about the same, but data coverage isn’t even close)
    2) it’s pretty damn easy to replace your battery in a Droid. From what I hear, you have to pay Apple $80 – $90, send your phone to them, and be without your phone for 2 – 3 weeks in order to change your battery.
    3) a far higher percentage of the 10,000 + apps available for the Droid are free. Sure, as of right now, the iPhone has more apps (give it time…), but you have to pay for more of them compared to the Droid’s apps.

    Between now and Christmas, I only have two days off from work that are not currently occupied by other personal committments: the 15th and the 21st. Either of those work?

  3. I’m looking to get a Droid when my “new in two” time comes up. This June, I think.
