Reality paging Dr. Dobson

I shouldn’t be surprised that James Dobson’s new blacklist of companies for conservatives to avoid patronizing includes Microsoft. That Microsoft are evil is most likely the only think the “doctor” and I will ever come close to agreeing upon.

Alas, it looks kind of bad when the servers hosting the list are running Windows 2000 and 2003. Somehow I expected better from Mr. Dobson than “Do as we say, not as we do”. I mean, their IP addresses are owned by another company on the list, Raytheon. Good move, James.

Seeing as how Intel is on the list, I really hope the processors in those servers are AMD…

New movie website

The website for Melody Gilbert’s Urban Exploration documentary Into the Light has been updated, with a bunch of neat stuff. Worth a look, if you haven’t already been. It’s rumoured it’ll make it’s public debut sometime in 2Q06. Definately worth waiting for…

Tolerance 1, Ford 0

John has the goods on the victory of the shiny happy tolerant people over Ford Motor Company and the bigoted ninnies at the Amerikan Family Association.

Even Iran Has It’s Share of Idiots

Sometimes I think the United States has a monopoly on ignorance and stupidity, and then some dumbass like Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad goes and says something so downright dumb, that, in a way, it sort of makes me proud to see such very Great-Satan qualities being shown by a leader of a member of the Axis of Evil.

Ahmadinejad, in case you missed it, said that the holocaust was a myth, a legend, fabricated by Jews.

Usually it’s redneck skinhead Bubbas in America who do the holocaust denying, not heads of foreign states, however inbred they may be.

I sympathize with the Iranian people, having to live in a tyrranical dictatorship, led by a raving idiot of a politician. Not enjoying it much here, can’t imagine they’re enjoying it there.

Where’s this filed? “D” for “Dummy”, of course. 🙂

More HSOMBs online

The folks at the Twin Cities Urban Exploration Cabal are slowly making a large number of previously-unseen Homeland Security Operations Morning Briefs (HSOMB) available online, starting with September of 2004. Definately worth bookmarking and checking back.
