Is It True About Obama?

The Low Road to Victory - NY Times tells Clinton she should get out


From today's NY Times Editorial:
The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.

Voters are getting tired of it; it is demeaning the political process; and it does not work. It is past time for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to acknowledge that the negativity, for which she is mostly responsible, does nothing but harm to her, her opponent, her party and the 2008 election.

If nothing else, self interest should push her in that direction. Mrs. Clinton did not get the big win in Pennsylvania that she needed to challenge the calculus of the Democratic race. It is true that Senator Barack Obama outspent her 2-to-1. But Mrs. Clinton and her advisers should mainly blame themselves, because, as the political operatives say, they went heavily negative and ended up squandering a good part of what was once a 20-point lead.

On the eve of this crucial primary, Mrs. Clinton became the first Democratic candidate to wave the bloody shirt of 9/11. A Clinton television ad — torn right from Karl Rove’s playbook — evoked the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban missile crisis, the cold war and the 9/11 attacks, complete with video of Osama bin Laden. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” the narrator intoned.

If that was supposed to bolster Mrs. Clinton’s argument that she is the better prepared to be president in a dangerous world, she sent the opposite message on Tuesday morning by declaring in an interview on ABC News that if Iran attacked Israel while she were president: “We would be able to totally obliterate them.”

By staying on the attack and not engaging Mr. Obama on the substance of issues like terrorism, the economy and how to organize an orderly exit from Iraq, Mrs. Clinton does more than just turn off voters who don’t like negative campaigning. She undercuts the rationale for her candidacy that led this page and others to support her: that she is more qualified, right now, to be president than Mr. Obama...It is getting to be time for the superdelegates to do what the Democrats had in mind when they created superdelegates: settle a bloody race that cannot be won at the ballot box.

Hi.

Hey, I know I haven't written anything personal here in a loooong time. I really have been neglecting this journal. Thank you, you few remaining readers (and I mean FEW, I checked the numbers - which I also have not done in a long time, down from over three thousand views a month to eighty, less than three a day) this once was personal, about my travels and transformation. It was possibly the first video blog. Now it has little video, and little blog.

But, wait... Here we again, back on the only road I have ever known...

I am off this week to Alaska, then to Hawaii for three months and this winter I will be in China and Vietnam. Travels! Adventure! Maybe even more Videos!
OK, not so exciting for you, but I am stoked. I have been sicker than I have ever been for the las t year, now I am coming back to health and to life, so ride with me if you can, I would really appreciate your company - in person or through this screen,
Cheers,
El Deano

This Guy Can Get 59 MPG in an Accord

Drafting 18-wheelers with the engine off, taking death turns at 52 miles an hour, and other lessons learned while riding shotgun with the king of the hypermilers...
these guys get over 100mpg out of their hybrids, and hybrid mileage out of their non-hybrids. I hope you don't try (most of this) at home. Mother Jones

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond

any experience,your eyes have their silence:

in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,

or which i cannot touch because they are too near



your slightest look easily will unclose me

though i have closed myself as fingers,

you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens

(touching skillfully,mysteriously)her first rose



or if your wish be to close me,i and

my life will shut very beautifully,suddenly,

as when the heart of this flower imagines



the snow carefully everywhere descending;



nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals

the power of your intense fragility:whose texture

compels me with the colour of its countries,

rendering death and forever with each breathing



(i do not know what is is about you that closes

and opens; only something in me understands

the voice of your eyes is

deeper than all roses)

nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

Academy Awards Oscar Goes to 12 Environmentalists

Yeah, the big news is Gore is the first person to win both a presidential election and an Academy Award, but there's also this from nature.com;
"As the film world awaits the tearing of envelopes at Sunday's Oscar ceremony, some are already clutching their Academy Awards. Among them are the 12 technicians who, in the name of reducing pollution, have de-silvered the silver screen for good.
The team worked to replace the silver used in soundtracks with cyan dye, reducing the need for harmful chemicals and saving 2,000 kilograms of silver and more than 150 million litres of water each year."
By replacing replacing the tungsten light used to read the audio in movies with red LEDs removing the need for silver and harmful chemicals.

100 Free, Legal, Downloads - Again!

emusic, an independent mp3 site, similar to itunes (but without all the limitations, and without as large of a collection - but a great collection of independent stuff, with a bit of mainstream stuff too) usually offers 25 free downloads to try out their service out. If you follow this link, you should get 100. Enjoy. This is a repost from over a year ago, but I checked it out and it still works, several readers wrote to say how happy they were with emusic, and how amazing getting 100 free downloads is. You don't have to pay, you do have to sign up, and then you can continue monthly, or cancel within 30 days and keep your DRM free music.

Public Pressure causes UK to pull out of Iraq

According to Glenn Greenwald in Salon, British troops will be pulling out, will the US follow? "Blair's reversal was likely motivated in large part by various domestic political pressures. Still, the fact that President Bush's most steadfast ally has reversed himself in such a public and humiliating way, and announced a clear-cut withdrawal from Iraq on a set timetable, should embolden frightened American Congressional war opponents to move beyond inconsequential and limited non-binding resolutions and begin thinking seriously about how to compel an end to this endlessly destructive occupation."

Great Cell Phone Deal for you

I researched cell phones, and cell phone plans for quite a while. As my old provider was terrible. By far the best plan I found was a "secret" plan through Sprint.

This is what I get for $24 a month:
500 anytime minutes
7 pm evening and weekends unlimited
mobile to mobile unlimited
"Power Vision" (unlimited high speed web access, various applications (like maps, weather, etc.) some TV, like NFL etc.)
etc.

(it will cost you between 22 and 30, $30 minus a discount based on where you work / go to school)
You may also be able to get free text, etc.
You can also sign up for 1000 minutes for more.
You can get most phones they offer for free (after rebate) with this plan (RAZR, KRZR, fusic, etc.)
If you want the details leave me a comment, and I'll respond when I can. I am not going to reveal how to get this plan in this post, because it would be a long post, and I try to keep these short and sweet.

This is of course completely above board, legal, etc.

"Robin Hood" restaurants


At "Robin Hood" restaurants, diners pay what they can afford -- and what they think the meal is worth.

An epiphany scribbled out on a cocktail napkin on a plane ride gave birth to SAME café. Both Brad and Libby had been searching for a meaningful way to give back while making a living. Admitted volunteer junkies, they had been serving and eating with homeless shelter residents for the past eight years. "We loved the service aspect of giving to the community and attacking the issue of hunger," says Brad. "Plus we both love to cook." When they found out about One World, they flew to Salt Lake City to learn how it was run. Cerreta, in turn, spent a month helping the Birkys prepare for opening. One World has had more than 25 inquiries from others around the country interested in starting a similar café. Recently, the café formed a nonprofit www.oneworldeverybodyeats.comaimed at helping others replicate such a venture.

The cafes' clientele is as diverse as the from-scratch buffet-style dishes. Attorneys and CEOs, students, seniors and soccer moms, as well as those down on their luck are among the 150-200 customers that dine daily at One World. Sniffling from a cold, Mike Dega, an environmental engineer, came in looking for comfort food. "I feel like I'm getting a whole new set of nutrients here as opposed to processed food—plus all the spices and flavors here are a real turn-on.""Robin Hood" restaurants
