Day January 28, 2004

Our Commander in Chief

From Whitehouse.gov

Remarks by the President to the Press Pool
Nothin’ Fancy Cafe
Roswell, New Mexico

11:25 A.M. MST

THE PRESIDENT: I need some ribs.

Q Mr. President, how are you?

THE PRESIDENT: I’m hungry and I’m going to order some ribs.

Q What would you like?

THE PRESIDENT: Whatever you think I’d like.

Q Sir, on homeland security, critics would say you simply haven’t spent enough to keep the country secure.

THE PRESIDENT: My job is to secure the homeland and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. But I’m here to take somebody’s order. That would be you, Stretch — what would you like? Put some of your high-priced money right here to try to help the local economy. You get paid a lot of money, you ought to be buying some food here. It’s part of how the economy grows. You’ve got plenty of money in your pocket, and when you spend it, it drives the economy forward. So what would you like to eat?

Q Right behind you, whatever you order.

THE PRESIDENT: I’m ordering ribs. David, do you need a rib?

Q But Mr. President —

THE PRESIDENT: Stretch, thank you, this is not a press conference. This is my chance to help this lady put some money in her pocket. Let me explain how the economy works. When you spend money to buy food it helps this lady’s business. It makes it more likely somebody is going to find work. So instead of asking questions, answer mine: are you going to buy some food?

I was going to put in a sarcastic comment but I think the text speaks for itself.

I Like

Here is a cool implementation of sharing links that you like. It is called I Like:

All you have to do is click the I like! button every time you see a web page that you find interesting. Based on your indications, I like! recommends pages that people with similar interests have liked.

I just added it today. So far I can say that I Like.

Didn’t I already pay for this movie

Didntialreadypayforthismovie.com is against advertisements that are shown before a movie in the cinemas:

You know them. You hate them. Ads before movies are getting more and more prevalent. We must act now to stop the menace before it becomes entrenched beyond repair.

If you think one or two ads before a movie isn’t going to kill anybody, consider that recently we sat through SEVEN ads before the previews* began. Is nothing sacred?

Hey sign me up. I don’t mind sitting through previews but I hate the ads. Especially if they are the same ads you see during a regular FREE tv show.

Children Books of the Early Soviet Era


I wish they would explain a little about the books so I would know what the covers mean.

What is Dogster?

We are dog freaks and computer geeks, unafraid to admit that when we see a dog, any dog, our heads turn and we howl with delight. Who wants a treat? Who does? Well, we do — and we think it’s about time there is a canine sharing application that is truly for the dogs. We hope you do too! All the dogs in the house say Wooooof! … Woooooooooooof! Bark bark bark!
