Backed up by talent on loan from God

Yesterday commenting on the economic plan and what was being proposed and how it was done I had this to say:

This is what is happening , the ground is being prepared not for the recovery of the county’s economy but for the retention of power. If the economy recovers all well and good but if not they are going to be damn sure that they keep their majorities.

First things first after all.

Well it looks like someone a whole lot more knowledgeable than me on this has something to say about this:

Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing “eternal” power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.

I don’t claim to have the experience of Rush Limbaugh but remember first and foremost this is what it going on. Anyone who thinks it isn’t the case isn’t paying attention. economy

Pure Grain has a bit of a kick

Back from the party, a lovely gathering at the home of a very liberal friend of mine.

It is always important to remember that politics are politics but friendship trumps it.

If you are a fan of offbeat radio and a little video might I suggest the WDOA blog here. It isn’t my scene but it might be yours.

Was offered spiked eggnog. It had a bit of a kick I didn’t care for the taste, never been an eggnog guy but the wife liked it.

The kick came from 190 proof grain alcohol. I tried it straight and found it much better than the eggnog. Tasted kinda like Anisette to me but It’s not something I’d have again. Sort of like when I tried Mead at Steve’s place except it tasted better.

Given the choice I’d much rather have Lambrusco any day.

Get a deal on DaTechGuy’s support via eBay

Posted: January 24, 2009 by datechguy in tech

I’ve re-listed the tech support services I offer via eBay. If you need a virus cleaned, a new PC setup or anything else on your Microsoft based system you can catch a bargain by bidding on the services that I offer rather than going with the flat fees from the blog.

If you have any questions concerning either just leave a comment in the blog or contact me via the e-mail feature of eBay. My services are all listed under a search for DaTechGuy.

Off to the party

I’ll be heading off to a friend’s party in a bit so if your comments are not approved in a timely manor that’s why.

Unfortunately the couple that was coming with us has one mother and one daughter down sick, but that means I might take a detour to show the wife where Anna Maria College is.

Since that visit the boy’s been accepted to Emmanuel, Fitchburg State, Bridgewater State, Curry and Newbury with various scholarship packages offered. So far Anna Maria has the offered best financial package of the batch but he’s reached no decision yet. I’m sure he’ll visit at least a couple more before the final decision is made.
