Rifleman’s Creed

16 Mar

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will…

My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit…

My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until victory is America’s and there is no enemy, but peace!

 

Google Blows

18 Feb

Google blows.

They’re running a utility company without so much as a Public Utilities Commission for oversight.

It’s negligent business homicide.

Taken from an earlier email thread in regard to Google’s mis-attribution of reviews from the UK to a US company and Google’s inclusion of absolutely awful review snippets.

If they were the telephone company they’d be fined by the PSC for running such a poor system.

P.S. Here’s another nascent idea: http://ethicalreviewsonline.org/

Winding Creek Research @wcgroup Louisiana Election Poll 2010

21 Aug

I just received a call from a representative of “Winding Creek Research” link regarding the November 2010 Louisiana Elections.

After validating my likelihood to vote in these elections I was asked a short series of questions, roughly, as follows:

Q1. How likely to vote in November Election
Q2. If Senate race today who would you choose between:
Q3. If the House race were held today, who would you choose between:
Q3. Do you generally approve of Barack Obama’s Job as President
Q4. Do you generally consider yourself a Democrat, Republican or Independent
Q5. Did you Vote for Barack Obama
Q6. Do you Generally Support New Health Care Bill or Do you think it should be Repealed & Replaced – this was the only questions which seemed a little slanted with “repealed & replaced”
