SERVICE: FACEBOOK has risks; parents should engage a “Glenda”

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

I found something disturbing aimed at one of my young Facebook “friends”.

(You know they “friend” me when they think it’s “kool” to have some “friends” and want to build up their count. Then forget that the fat old white guy injineer “stalks” them forever. Like Glenda the Good Witch, watching over them and their online presence.)

So, I immediately alerted on it to the “command authority” (i.e., her parents) via the approved channels (i.e., her aunt).

Action was taken.

This post suggests that parents need to have a view into their children’s onine activities.

Of course, I offer my “glenda service” at my usual discount. (LOL!) But, you’ll have to be “kool” about how you get a Glenda on to their friend’s list.

“Wonder what that crazy old koot is up to this week end? You see him on Facebook don’t you, dearest child of mine?” May work?

Or, find a trusted friend or relative that the child has already been “friend-ed” during their naïve days, and assign them Glenda duty.

Forewarned is forearmed. Or in this case, four eyeballed. (Yeah, I know it falls flat. But you get the idea!)

POLITICAL: “We’re all Catholics now.” — Mitt Romney

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

ere’s some discussion of the issue of the Obama mandate and a quote I hadn’t heard before.

Breaching the Wall

*** begin quote ***

I’m starting to entertain the thought that a litmus test for bad guys versus good guys is that the former want to limit religion by arbitrary state redefinition, the latter to limit government to the terms of the Constitution.

I’ve been concerned with religious freedom pretty keenly since well before I set foot in law school, and I know that this issue is one where, whatever his other defects, Romney stands in stark contrast to Obama and his administration. “We’re all Catholics now.”

I think that he’s hit the nail on the head.

Limit Gooferments; not people!

RANT: “Audit the Fed” has some life

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

*** begin quote ***

Dear Ferdinand,

This is it!

Earlier today, I received word that Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) is now scheduled for a vote this July in the U.S. House of Representatives!

This historic moment is only possible thanks to your relentless pressure. Now we must turn up the heat to secure victory – first in the House and then in Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate.

That’s why I hope you’ll read the note below from Senator Rand Paul and take immediate action.

In Liberty,

Matt Hawes
Vice President
Campaign for Liberty

*** end quote ***

If one has to find the one single thing, that has impoverished us as a nation, while allowing the Gooferment to grow out of control and dramatically preventing us from controlling that “sprawl”, then one only has to look at the 1913 creation of the Fed.

Killing it wouldn’t solve our problems. 

But it would go along way to stop the hole we’re in from being dug to even grater depths.

AND, it would stop “inflation”. The automatic debasement of our unit of account.

The Dead Old White Guys must be rolling over to see us make this basic mistake.
