This morning, I began working on some PCs that were in need of upgrading. As they are being upgraded, I found myself with a moment to check some things out.
Big Issues in the Mayoral Race by Larry Littlefield caught my eye.
We do have a serious problem, and we need something in the way of a working remedy, not just for New York, but for America.
I read a piece by Ellen Brown, and I want to share that with you all.
I wrote in my last piece regarding the primaries; how I woke up after 11:00 PM to find out that Ken Thompson had beaten incumbent Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes, among other triumphs.
It was a great day.
I thought to myself, in anticipation of the changes, that a number of people would see in their lives; notably, John Giuca and his mother, Doreen Giuliano, John Kennedy O'Hara, Jabbar Collins, David Ranta, Jeffrey Deskovic, Derrick Hamilton and Samuel Kellner, to name just a few.
I wish to first offer my congratulations to the winners - Letitia James, Laurie Cumbo, Scott Stringer, and especially to Bill de Blasio and Ken Thompson.
What a fantastic thing to wake up to at 11:00 PM!
Happy Friday, dear readers!
Bill de Blasio is standing tall in the polls, with a scant number of days left until the primary.
Let's look for the newspapers that endorsed Christine Quinn to make an attempt at derailing his campaign.
Let's be ready to fight back.
Similarly - what dirty tricks will Breezy Point Joe pull out to steal the office of the District Attorney of Kings County away from Ken Thompson?
Once again, let's be ready.
Labor Day Weekend is upon us. I hope that everyone has something fun awaiting them.
How strong are your convictions?
Are you familiar with the saying, "In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."
That was penned by Samuel Clemens, known colloquially as Mark Twain (Notebook, 1935).
Happy Hump Day, dear readers!
Wednesday morning on the subway, I catch a headline in the New York Post that I can't help but to look up. It's titled, "Chicago warns NY: Expect slay spree over frisk nix as Windy City suffered highest 2012 murder rate in the country amid no stop-frisk policy"
Last Thursday, I was saddened to discover that Abe George was no longer running for the office of Brooklyn District Attorney. I heard the news just as it was being announced over the airwaves that evening. That sadness, however, was mitigated by the idea that now we are going to bear witness to quite the event: Hynes vs. Thompson, with Abe George in Thompson's corner.
Nanny Bloomberg is at it again...
I have had some trouble getting around to posting a new piece...at least, until today.
I can't say for certain what has been disturbing me to the point that I couldn't put idea to paper, in a sense. Certainly, there's a lot to talk about.
First, let's dig right into the George Zimmerman trial.
I'm not glued to the television, trying to peer into every aspect of the trial. There's only one facet of the case that needs examination: did George Zimmerman shoot Trayvon Martin in self-defense?
Have you all heard these sayings:
"Orange is the new Black"
"Thursday is the new Friday"
I hate that crap.
Calling something or referring to something as "new" hardly makes that thing any better than it was.
That being said...I present my latest piece with exactly that phrasing; however, I think you'll find it oddly appropriate.
Happy Friday, everyone!
I just finished bringing a PC back from the dead, and successfully creating an image for said PC. It was built for a specific service, and recreating it out of whole cloth would have taken time and resources away from a number of individuals.
I performed a number of mental and technological gymnastics today, if I may say so myself.
After all of the fun had subsided, I decided to take a break and check out CNN.
I didn't know exactly what I would find.
Apparently, the infomercial known as "Brooklyn D.A." has failed miserably:
Before we get to this week's review of the infomercial titled "Brooklyn D.A.", let's talk about PRIVACY.
I'm pleased to see that I'm not alone in calling "Brooklyn D.A." an informercial...and a badly-done one, at that.
I need for someone to explain exactly why the Asia Ross case was used at all. I think that time would have been better spent explaining the wrongful conviction of John Guica, for example; or how about why Jabbar Collins spent 16 years in jail for a crime he didn't commit; but be it far from me to tell these guys how to do their job.
But...what was the job here?
