Lions and Tigers and Bears and Donkeys

Liberals have no concept, nor do they care.

Liberals don’t care where the money comes from. Why should they care about spending that money?

Where does money come from?
Many believe it comes from the Federal Govt or Central Banks. While the argument can be made the Feds/Central bank are manufacturers of money, I don’t believe they create the wealth behind it. Since our economical implosion happened in 2008, our Federal Govt has been printing money in an effort to create short term wealth. 5 years later our domestic fiscal policy has gotten us nowhere because fiscal policy does not result in the expansion of [sustainable] wealth. I am in the camp that says don’t print wealth and let the pieces fall where they may. I believe a tough love fiscal policy would have paved the path toward a stronger, if not sooner recovery.



Galaxy Nexus Screenshot

As an admitted die-hard all things Googleite, I make sure my family is all well equipped with all things Google.

Our phones are no exception. My wife, daughter, and of course yours truly are all outfitted with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Google Phone).

I’m not really a screenshot kind of guy with my phone but apparently my daughter is. She showed me a nice screenshot trick you can do with the Galaxy Nexus.

On the left there is a volume toggle button. By simultaneously pushing the lower toggle and the power button, the phone will take a screenshot and send it to your gallery.

So you see, not all of my posts are gun related although it is comforting to know I can still take a shot with my phone!

Google Chrome

As a consummate tinkerer, I’m always trying new software and different browsers. I downloaded the Google Chrome browser way back when it first came out but never did like it as much as Firefox.

It had been a year or so since I tried Chrome so a couple weeks ago I wondered how Chrome was coming along. I downloaded the newest version of Chrome and to my surprise, it had evolved into a very nice browser.


Having just wrote an article featuring a media streaming service called Orb, I was recently turned on to another media streaming service that I’ve been testing over the weekend.

Libox is a media streaming service that allows you to stream your music, photos, and video from your computer.

It works similiar to Orb in that you download their FREE software and sync whatever media folders you want.


Have I mentioned I have a large music collection? For the past year, I have managed to convert my hundreds of CD’s to digital format so I can preserve them and of course listen to them with my computer. I have also bought Western Digital’s WDTV Live so I can wirelessly stream them from my computer to my stereo system so I can rock the house!!

The last remaining task that I have recently accomplished is to be able to stream my music collection through any internet connection.

Enter Orb.

Export This Part 5

After the recent events surrounding the LNG lease with Oregon LNG and the current commission’s inability to grasp the fact they have a valid lease, I am more than convinced they have NOT taken the time to carefully think through the ramifications of their idea to export logs.

There is consensus in the community that the strategic plan that was set in place nearly a decade ago is sufficient for the port to follow as a blueprint for the future. Minor tweaks here and there will need to be made but the macro idea of the plan is a sound one. Judging on the way the current commission is handling (or better yet, bungling) their ideas to move the port forward, is further evidence this commission is being led by a force of egos that don’t want to admit a good plan is in place. Further compounding of their bungling is consistent bad advice from the legal firm they hired to try to get out of the Oregon LNG lease.
