SOFTWARE: MARSEDIT3 is the blog content creation tool that I’m now using

MarsEdit 3
Desktop blog editing for the Mac.The best way to write, preview, and publish your blog.

Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be connected to the internet just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not so great for creating it.

Note: They gave a thirty day trial and it worked flawlessly. Unlike what I was using ECTO.




… … if anyone cares.

GUNS: Buy guns and ammo now?

Friday, January 23, 2009

Buy, Buy, Buy
by Michael Gaddy

*** begin quote ***

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.   ~ Noah Webster

While we stumble along economically with bailouts, buyouts, and poor sales in almost all sectors, two products in America are seeing dramatic increases in sales: guns and ammo. People who never owned a gun before are buying; people are buying multiples of military style weapons and ammo is being bought by the case instead of by the box.

Forewarned is forearmed. The encrouchments continue. Watched Mel Gibson’s “the patriot” again last night. Seems so obvious. Why can we only learn the lessons of history after something bad happens to us. Look at the TSA and ask “how the hell did this happen?”. I’d suggest it was when the FAA disarmed the pilots. But you might have other opinions.

The RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms — RKBA — should have been the First Amendment! Ask any tyrant or dictator.

It’s really the litmus test for a politician. Ask that one question and you can tell if they are a socialist or not.

What is Retaggr about?

* Unifying your online profiles. Bring all your profiles on all your sevices into one place, so the world can find out who you are, and connect with you.

* We’re not another social network. You already have your profiles all over the web. We help consolidate your identity.

* We give you a bunch of tools to do so. Retaggr widgets, badges, an email signature, the Add Me Button, and of course, your rich, interactive Profile Card.

Interesting. I added their widget to the right column. We’ll see if it’s used at all?
