My take on Apple/FoxConn - Apple SUCKS!

As do all of the companies that do business with these Chinese Contract Manufacturers. It isn't just Apple, it isn't just FoxConn, it is Dell, Motorola, Flextronics, all of them that take advantage of a group of workers.

That being said, all of us suck a bit for supporting these companies, me with my iPad purchase, IMac purchase, laptop, etc.

The solution isn't to fight amongst ourselves over mac vs microsoft or iphone vs android phone. The solution will be realized when we all realize that we may need to make a stand, do without and be vocal why we are doing without. Even if I have to live without my iPod Nano, which I think is the coolest, for a couple of years.

Game friggen over - Daniels Speech, Newt surge is based upon populism.

They are playing on the Dems home field and they will be beat down. The narrative has changed and they know it.

"Those jobs at Staples are middle class jobs."

So says Chuckie Todd on MTP.

So part time minimum wage jobs are now middle class.

Am I the only person who has no clue who Paula Deen is?

Sorry, and I am afraid if I click on a thread it will be a Jimmy Dean sausage commercial.

Tin Foil Hat Time - Mittster taxes/voting

Did Mitt vote in the Scott Brown Senate Race in MA?

If so, and that was his declared voting residence, will he show MA as his home state on his tax returns, or will it be UT?

Romney is going to tie the Repubs into a Pretzel

He can be made the poster boy for the BS they have been pushing.

Lower the tax rates on the rich and jobs will be created!

For the Defense, we present Exhibit 1 - Mr. Romney, he pays a tax rate of less that 15% and created a negative loss of jobs.

Some of them will get it and along with Mitt's other negatives, will not be motivated to vote.

Who the hell names a kid Krystal Ball? She is on Ed now.

Does she have a sister named Ophellia?
