Terror firmaMy review of Big Finish #72 Doctor Who Terror Firma Staring Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor, India Fisher as Charley Pollard, Conrad Westmaas as Crizz and Terry Molloy as Davors is available at here.

Doctor Who magazine voting not withstanding I have given this audio the lowest rating I’ve ever given any Dr. Who audio I’ve reviewed. It was simply dreadful.

Out of the last 8 of the new series (not counting the three latest that i don’t have yet) that I’m missing there are 3 more Charley, Crizz 8th doctor adventures. I sure hope they are better than this one or I’m steering toward a huge letdown.

If you simply MUST have it to complete your set then Mike’s Comics does carry it, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

A: Biden speaks to a “whopping crowd” of media but can’t draw a crowd. Palin is able to answer him via facebook to millions from her keyboard.

The vice president’s extreme opposition to domestic energy development goes all the way back to 1973 when he opposed the Alaska pipeline bill. As Ann Coulter pointed out, “Biden cast one of only five votes against the pipeline that has produced more than 15 billion barrels of oil, supplied nearly 20 percent of this nation’s oil, created tens of thousands of jobs, added hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. economy and reduced money transfers to the nation’s enemies by about the same amount.”

This nonsensical opposition to American domestic energy development continues to this day. Apparently the Obama-Biden administration only approves of offshore drilling in Brazil, where it will provide security and jobs for Brazilians. This election is about American security and American jobs.

There’s one way to tell Vice President Biden that we’re tired of folks in Washington distorting our message and hampering our nation’s progress: Hoffman, Baby, Hoffman!

I like it. Hoffman Baby Hoffman!

Update: The story is at the Hill here. Gateway Pundit comments:

It’s important to remember that the Obama-Biden energy plan is a non-energy plan. It consists of cutting off domestic production of oil and coal causing prices to skyrocket and implementing costly solar and wind programs that absolutely will not meet America’s energy demands.

The Obama Administration approved funding for the Soros-linked Brazilian oil drilling project this year but banned oil and nuclear energy development in the United States.

With unemployment near 10% this is not a winning way to go.

Update 2: Hotair Headline It’s on.

…but there are still people out that who don’t understand just how public a public wi-fi hotspot is:

Here’s what you need to know: Public hot-spots are — especially those that are open and don’t require a password — are, by design, insecure. Sure, they may be easy and convenient to hop on from your computer, but that very openness is also what allows anyone, particularly hacking criminals, to just walk in and sign on. In other words, when you’re signed on to a public Wi-Fi hotspot (or at an unsecured hotspot at your or someone’s private home), it’s entirely possible for someone to come along and snatch your data, literally out of the air.

If you are using important passwords or signing onto financial sites at open hotspots you are begging someone to steal your data. Don’t DO IT. It’s one thing to surf the web to catch up on sports and news but that is not meant for secure information.

And if you are still using WEP at home. STOP THAT. WEP was cracked almost 5 years ago!

I’ve been preaching this for years and years, if you won’t believe me then please believe this article. The time and expense you will save is all your own!

Was the fix in?

You know something, vendetta not withstanding Dede’s endorsement/conversion of the Democratic side and the quick relationship between the White house and Scozzafava?

I mean this lady was the republican WHIP in the house? You would think that she would have some attachment to the party.

It’s one thing to quietly support the other guy out of understandable spite and anger, it’s totally another to be doing robo calls for the democrat if you are the minority whip. Imagine Steny Hoyer suddenly going Republican over 2 days.

It’s just not possible no matter how angry you are.

Could something have been going on WAY BEFORE the Hoffman surge? After all Dede the angry was not willing to commit to staying in the party even way back when.

Something to think about.

Vote Hoffman!
