This is where Google's word processor really comes to compete with Microsoft word, but not just yet. Documents aren't yet supported by this program, but I expect that will be in due time.
Obama continues to enjoy the highest level of core support among all candidates in either party. Thirty-three percent (33%) would definitely vote for Obama while 38% would definitely vote against. For Edwards, the numbers are 27% definitely for and 35% definitely against. Clinton has solid support from 28% but 47% say they would definitely vote against her.In the larger picture, Obama has more support than Clinton. Also, Clinton has a larger portion of people who would prefer not to see her in office. With 47% of people strongly against her, that leaves a very small margin to work with.
"If we think that we can do what we want around the world and not incite hatred, then we have a problem. They don't come here and attack us because we're rich and we're free. They attack us because we're over there."Admittedly, he is a republican candidate, but he is the only republican candidate that I would even consider voting for. He, at the very least, considers the side-effects of what we are doing. He sees that the reason people hate us is for attacking them. If we left them alone, the would leave us alone. Don't poke at the sleeping dog.
I would tell the people who had to do the interrogation to use every method they can think of.Who is to say that the people being interrogated/tortured actually know the information you want? Given this was in reference to a hypothetical situation, how do we know that that is the only time it would be used? How can you trust this information when many will lie simply to stop the torture?
The Redmond behemoth asserts that one reason free software is of such high quality is that it violates more than 200 of Microsoft's patents.How is it that if Linux is stealing from Microsoft, that they are so much better? Linux is a much more stable platform than Windows. The only thing that Microsoft has going for them is their marketshare, pocketbook, and not much else.
Speaking of talking, I wish someone would explain to me why we're still fighting a cold war with Cuba. JFK broke off relations and established a trade embargo against Cuba in 1961, at a time when Fidel Castro's collaboration with the Soviet Union presented a real threat to our shores. But does anyone honestly believe that Cuba poses any threat whatsoever in 2007?Why are we stopping all trade? Why does it matter? Why is the US being such a dick about something forty years ago? Can't we just make some effort to get along?
Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.We all know that the freedoms written in the constitution are only suggestions from our founding fathers. Not. Giuliani seems to be banking on the idea that people respect him for being Mayor during 9/11, but the reality is that everything after that point has been mishandled. The Iraq war was a big mistake, and anyone who supports it does not deserve to be in any office.
Just two days after the second veto of George W. Bush's presidency, the White House has threatened a third.The Whitehouse defends themselves saying that such laws already exist at the local level, but that is hardly an excuse. As if denying marriage to gays wasn't enough, the Bush administration doesn't even want to protect them from violence. Who cares if it exists at the local level, make it national; it's not like it will damage the legal system.
This time it involves a bill that expands hate crime laws to include violent attacks against people because of their sexual orientation or gender, passed by the House Thursday on a 237-180 vote. Current law applies to acts of violence on the basis of race, religion, color or national origin.
Viacom said that by the time it filed the lawsuit, it had identified over 150,000 clips on YouTube that infringed its copyright and asked for them to be taken down. Viacom also argued that YouTube's reliance on rights-holders to notify it of cases of infringement places an unfair burden on them.Wait! It's unfair to Viacom that they have to notify YouTube? It's unfair that YouTube is 100% responsible for monitoring the thousands of videos uploaded every day. It's not as if Google is a pain to work with; they remove all the clips that they are sent notices for. What are they complaining about?
WASHINGTON - President Bush vetoed legislation to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq Tuesday night in a historic showdown with Congress over whether the unpopular and costly war should end or escalate.I desperately want to see Congress override Bush's veto, but it will be hard to sway the Bushies. I have a strong feeling that because of their backing of the Iraq war, many republican candidates will fail. It is near impossible to imagine any kind of justification for the war. Democrats will likely succeed because they are fighting to stop the war.
