Ahnold at the RNC....

Nobel Economics Prize winner... I mean well-respected actor... I mean bodybuilder with unimpeachable ethics when it comes to controlled substances... well, anyway, Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger just addressed the Republican Convention in New York. Gentle readers, all four or five of you will, perhaps, forgive us for venturing from the realm of narrowly defined North Carolina politics, but we needed a break from reading our Tort Law (Subtitle: Suing People for Fun and Profit).

The main thing we want to point out is the ridiculous callousness of Conan the Barbarian's "Economic girly men" comment. The transcript will probably be available here soon. Setting aside the flippant tone of this post thus far, textile workers in North Carolina who have their jobs shipped out are not "economic girly men." Nor are steel workers in Michigan or West Virginia, nor are those employed by small businesses who don't have healthcare, and nor are the millions who aren't being provided with the training they need to transition to a services/information based economy, and so have left the workforce.

Mr. Freeze accuses us of economic pessimism, and thus implies that he and the President are economic optimists. If ignoring the fact that economic hardship exists in this country and exists to a greater degree under his administration than in the previous one is what passes for optimism in the President's lexicon, we are happy to cede the term to him.

However, if optimism is about looking at the economic situation in America and knowing that we can do better, and if its about having faith that the working and middle classes can, given the chance, live better lives than the ones they are living now, and if its about wanting to give those people the leadership they need to get that chance, we suggest an alternative.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Viagra is a drug that is prescribed for a very fragile disease like erectile dysfunction. Hence people prefer to go for this drug after going through the viagra info sites. In these sites people get all the information required and related to the drug.

The disease called erectile dysfunction has strengthened its roots among the human breed mainly because of the reason that people are not very willing to share it willingly. These people can get all the information in the ED info sites. Through this information you can do away with their ED.

Generic Viagra is the best choice medicine for erectile dysfunction as it can be taken regardless of the age of the patient and works unhindered with most medicines.

Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness. Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.
