DAY 2 of the MoveTheDrieuxFestival!

Headlines you should not put near each other
Steve Schmidt: Palin Would Be "Catastrophic" Choice for 2012
Close to the Missing Link -- Oldest Human Ancestor Discovered
More Proof Evil Liberal Media Is Evil, and Liberal, and Media!

More Proof Of Obamanite Extremism: President Barack Obama leads Mahatma Gandhi birthday tributes - President Barack Obama has honoured Mahatma Gandhi on the Indian spiritual leader’s birthday, saying his teachings transformed American society. Good God! What more proof do americans need that he is some sort of CryptoIslamoZionistExtremists!

Tea Party Movement Returns Christian Right to Its Racist Past - For years, the religious right tried to lose its racist image, reverting to homophobia as its hatred of choice. As it joins the Tea Party fray, it may once again have to own both. The harder discussion point remains, what will it take for americans to step beyond these simple emotionally charged follies, and try to put together arguments in a simply boring and rational way. Is that really condemned to wait for the next evolution when the simple merits of a rational argument will be all that it takes?

The shrill one on fiscal stuff: Multiplying multipliers - how much longer do americans have to suffer from these freaks who believe that reasoning is a relevant part of the national discourse, and would provide a common platform for mere civil decency in the public square.

In 1972, Republicans Voted For A National Healthcare Plan for Kidney Patients. What Changed? - the shorter answer, NIXON WAS A RADICAL LEFT WING EXTREMIST!

Things are Rolling along on the move

Well, woof and I got focus'd a bit. We were going to do two things today, get the comcast internet connection, and VOIP phone up and running. That worked out fine. The poor tech of course had to deal with the reality that the wire in the room we wanted to use, was connected to something, but what is not at all clear. The big silly is that some how back at ComCastHq, they thought that the job was only partially done, not understanding that no, we did not need or want 'cable' to provide us with Digital Images. The second part of the drill was getting the rugs sorted out, and Oh dear. That worked. We had looked at some options at DIY_A, and were going through DIY_B, when we found the basics, and purchased and installed them. This lead to the fun of having to get up to IKEA to get her new concept for a desk, rather than running up to davis tomorrow to pick up the other one... which will now get rendered to someone who really needs it.

All in all, a good enough day, except for the part where she tried to force my glasses through my head with the desk top.... but those things happen.
