YouTube-sday™: Seer on channel 63

How bad does this guy get to say "I told you so"????

On a side note: Peter is a fan of less government regulation. You would think if he is wise enough to predict this train wreck, he is smart enough to realize the no strings attached idea in the free market system is what caused the collapse.

YouTube-sday™: Triple Play

I was pretty unsure what in the world to post for today's YouTube-sday™, so I decided to let fate decide. So I fired up my mp3 player, hit shuffle and grabbed the video of the first song on the list. And to make it even more fateful (or show how huge of a loser I really am), I decided to expand it and post the first three. So no more delay - here are the first three songs from a shuffle of MusicMatch:

YouTube-sday™: Thanks

It's Veteran's Day. My father-in-law was a SeaBee near Okinawa in WW2. My grandfather fought somewhere in Europe. No matter your thoughts about Iraq, Afganistan and any other local we have been in or may end up in, give thanks to those that serve our country:

Right guard

After the fantastic win on Tuesday night, many right wing pundits still like the claim the country is "center-right", meaning that as a population, our thoughts and ideals border being in the center or leaning to the conservative right.

Today, the NY Times posted a very interesting map:
This map is fairly simple. What is shows is the voting habits for each county in the US. The colors signify the difference between the voting habits from the 2004 election and the 2008 election. If the county is red, the voting in that area was more Republican in 2008 compared to 2004. If it's blue, then the county voted more Democratic in 2008 than 2004.

Now, I'm no political expect (though I do play on on TV), but to me, that map tells me that while certain states still voted Republican than Democratic, from the ground, many more votes were placed for the blue side of the ballot than the red side.

You can enjoy the map yourself at this link. Just click on the "voting shifts" button on the left and have interactive fun zooming in and getting more detailed information.
