Magical Karmic Raises are only for Women!

At a women's tech conference Thursday, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft said this:

“It’s not really about asking for a raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raise,” he said to an audience primarily composed of women. "That might be one of the initial 'super powers,' that quite frankly, women (who) don’t ask for a raise have. It’s good karma. It will come back."

Magical Karmic Raises are the best kind of raises, because it tells the world we women in tech are good girls who don't question authority!

Mitt Romney is the 1% of the 47%

Well everyone has heard about Romney's latest gaffe, which does make me wonder if he is or is not really a liberal undercover, cause, really??? I mean, one week to the day of his last biggest gaffe, he does it again, he inserts his both feet and his hands in his mouth, ending his presidential dreams. No more padding his resume. It's done. Most disconcerting is that he really seems to believe that the little people, 47% of Americans, just want a handout from the government, and they are victims, and that is why they will vote for the other guy no matter what, FREE STUFF!

Mitt Romney: Unfit to Be President

This morning Mitt Romney has accused the President of  sympathizing with the people who killed the US Ambassador to Libya. In a statement released Tuesday evening but held back until 12:01 AM Wednesday, Mitt Romney said: “It’s disgraceful, that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

Lyin Ryan or Feats of Atlast Shrugging

Paul Ryan, well he just can't stop lying can he, first we find out that his entire speech at the RNC was riddled with outright lies. I think my favorite lie is that the GM plant that closed in 2008 is Obama's fault! I love the guy's logic, his reason, he is John Galt, he is a genius.

Going Solar By Day

Donal has written a number of amazing blogs on solar energy projects in his area. Those blogs convinced me it would be a good time to try talk to my husband about investing in a solar electric system for our house.  He agreed immediately thinking it was an excellent idea so in the next three months we are going solar by day. We signed the contract yesterday.

Fact Checking

Factcheck has released yet another ridiculous truth-o-meter on the President and how he is selling the newly Constitutional PPACA. I think their points are worth refuting.

Fact Check States in their summary: Obama reiterated his “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” refrain, despite the fact that at least a few million workers won’t keep their employer-sponsored plans, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

We Need the Stinking Mandate

We need the mandate.  The Supreme Court will rule on Monday, probably and it seems to me they've either struck the mandate down or the entire law down. Striking the mandate alone is going to have a number of negative effects on the insured and uninsured, the first of course being that 45  - 50 million people will continue to be without health care. But it is much more complex than that, and we have an example of what will happen without the insurance mandate.

Filibuster Reform: The Silent Veto

Oh the filibuster, I hear Harry Reid was grousing about it yet again, and really, really threatening to reform the filibuster in January 2013, assuming of course he remains the Senate Majority Leader. It isn't guaranteed Reid will be leader of the  Senate next year anyway, Republicans probably have a good chance of taking some more seats, how many is up in the air of course. But I find Reid to be the most disingenuous prick in the Senate.

"The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give." — Philip K. Dick If you want that good feeling that comes from doing things for other folks then you have to pay for it in abuse and misunderstanding. Zora Neale Hurston


It's complicated.
