POLITICAL: It’s not enough cutting to save us


Budget Negotiators Reach Tentative Deal To Avert Government Shutdown

*** begin quote ***

Sources tell me that budget negotiators on Capitol Hill have tentatively agreed on a deal that would involve at least $33 billion in spending cuts from this year’s budget. That’s $23 billion dollars more than Democrats have previously agreed to in short-term continuing resolutions, and $28 billion less than Republicans previously passed in the House.

*** end quote ***

Unless the amount cut has a “T” in it, as in “1T$ cut”, and politicians and bureaucrats are running around screaming that the “sky is falling”, they ain’t cut enough.

Shut it down!

HARDWARE: POGOPLUG becomes much more valuable



For a C Note and an external USB hard drive, you have your own “cloud”. This is an amazing solution. And, the fact, that it has no monthly charge, is stunning.

Put one in a friend’s house and you have off-site backup. And, it doesn’t preclude him putting his own along side it. I can see a lot of mutual back scenarios being created.

Hurry before they raise the price.
