Surely you are kidding...

A day after the biggest bankruptcy filing in US history, Bush says it's an "adjustment"! For real? I know the president is supposed to have a calming influence but still calling the biggest bankruptcy in the nation's history an "adjustment" is taking understatement to a new level.

In the same day, McCain said these two statements 3 hours apart:

"The fundamentals of our economy are strong..."

"The fundamentals of our economy are struggling..." (or something to that effect),

I guess his advisers don't read the early morning papers. Then he came on The Today Show to claim that by "fundamentals of our economy" he was referring to "American workers". What a load of bull. Even if that were true, how much more must American workers suffer before we get some substantial relief? Before we get health care that's better than going across to Mexico for surgery? Bear Stearns must not be allowed to go under but it's ok for millions of Americans to lose their homes due to the same reckless greed on Wall Street. Fannie and Freddie get govt cheese but it's too good for American workers. Pure bull!

Unfortunately, Matt didn't press McCain on why he changed his tone 3 hours after. I am sure those who claim Palin has foreign policy experience because "she lives close to Russia" will find that lame explanation plausible.

If Americans elect McCain for a 3rd Bush term...well the statement "you get the govt you deserve" will never be truer. Final words: if you are a republican and you are not rich, you are a fool. It's really that simple! Because you are trading
  • economic relief,
  • tax breaks for the working people,
  • govt handout and
  • freedom of choice (pro-choice)
  • sex-education for teenagers
  • science education that's based on scientific theories (such a simple concept)
for
  • stupid economic policy that hasn't worked in the past 8 years
  • tax cuts for the rich (yeah if you make $250,000 AGI, you are rich)
  • more spending on false wars like Iraq
  • lack of freedom of choice (pro-life)
  • ineffective abstinence training for teenagers (come on, didn't even work for the VP-nominee's daughter)
  • science education that's based on hocus pocus (aka intelligent design. what a croc). How can we lead the world in technology when our scientific curriculum says the world was created in 7 days?

The Teenage Years Cometh

If you're lucky, a few days after your twins are born, the hospital just let's you walk out with them. In fact, they insist you take them with you. No training, no classes, no probation...they really just let you walk out with 2 humans. #fatherhood — Tundey A. (@realtundey) November 28, 2021 This was me 12 years ago: And now look at them. In a little over 6 months, they'll be teenagers!   Every time I look at them, I am reminded of Obama's quote on being a parent:  "One of my favorite sayings about having children is it's like having your heart walking around outside your body." — @POTUS — White House Archived (@ObamaWhiteHouse) October 21, 2015

Does InfoPath (still) suck?

A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog post titled "InfoPath & SharePoint (Part 1)". Back then I had just started working on a project using InfoPath 2007. So, expectedly, the post wasn't very complimentary to InfoPath (or SharePoint). In fact, I said: InfoPath sucks and SharePoint is the most expensive piece of crap ever. InfoPath, as a development environment, has absolutely no redeeming value. It's worthless.... ( more ) Since then my opinion of InfoPath has changed slightly. It still suffers from all the flaws I pointed out in that post. However, I think when used right, InfoPath can be an OK tool. I think it's well suited for designing one off forms and not for anything that requires complex logic or multiple iterations (like most software development requires). Alas, most CTOs fall in love with its point & click simplicity and integration with SharePoint that they try to use it to replace more developed technologies like ASP.NET. What do you get? A h

How long should a blog post be?

A couple of times, people have accused me of writing really long blog posts. While I know that I have written some long ones , I think a blog ought to be more than a tweet or a facebook status update. This has been a problem for me because sometimes I want to write about a topic but I either can't quite write enough about it to justify making it a blog post or I just don't have the time to flesh out all my thoughts. So my blogger dashboard is littered with several unfinished blog posts that I started but didn't finished. For example, I had some really strong opinions on the Trayvon Martin case (back before Zimmerman was arrested). Mostly it was about how the case resonated with minority males (especially fathers) in a way in which non-minorities can't fathom. Not because they are insensitive but because they just can't do it. It's like expecting a 3rd world military dictator to understand the US Constitution. Oh yeah, where was I? Right, about writing really l
