Yet Another T-Shirt I Want

February 7, 2009 at 1:26 pm (Political Ponderings)

There are so many I want, but yet I already have so many that I have two dresser drawers filled with just t-shirts. I wonder if there’s a 12-step program for that.

Anyway, this one is from Glenn Beck’s web site – a ring-winger commentator who I know very little about but from the little I’ve read and heard of him he seems pretty entertaining (and who’s radio podcast I may start checking out once O’Reilly’s radio show goes off the air in a few weeks):

Obama takes on CEO of GE as economic advisor

February 7, 2009 at 1:05 pm (Political Ponderings)

Obama said the members of the board are private citizens outside the government who are qualified on the basis of achievement, experience, independence and integrity.

(full story)

Because, you know, how GE has been losing money for ages while still (until very recently) doing business with countries like Iran is the perfect example of economic achievement and integrity.

So I wonder just how far in bed with the Obama administration GE will end up being? Could this be one of the reasons that CNBC (owned by GE) has been the official Obama Cheerleader Network for the last couple of years? I wonder how many of the planned government funds for “green energy technologies” are going to go straight to GE projects?
Does nobody else see this as a huge conflict of interest?

Again, I must take a moment to bitch about Obama’s “No special interests in Washington” promises from the campaign.

Fanboys finally opens at a theater not near you

February 7, 2009 at 12:25 pm (Movies & TV)

This movie has been talked about around the net for probably a couple of year now and the release date kept getting pushed back – but yesterday it finally came out.
At a total of 44 screens across the entire country, mainly in the huge cities like NY, LA, and Chicago.
And like most “limited release” films, not here.
I’m really not that big of a Star Wars fan, but I thought it still looked like it could be pretty entertaining – oh well, yet another one I’m going to have to rent instead of going to in the theater.
