Can somebody please tell me the difference with this?

And while we’re at it:

Steve Jobs advised Bill Clinton over Monica Lewinsky

Posted on October 22nd, 2011 at 23:15 by John Sinteur in category: News


"I don’t know if you did it,” Mr Jobs told the then US president, “but if so, you’ve got to tell the country.”

It is unclear whether the advice to go public was welcome. For there was a long silence on the other end of the phone after he gave his response, according to Mr Jobs’s biographer Walter Isaacson.

Mr Clinton was famous for placing calls from the Oval Office as he worked late, but it is raising eyebrows that he sought the counsel of the Silicon Valley innovator on such a sensitive political and personal controversy.

The president consistently attempted to evade questions about his affair with Miss Lewinsky when she was an intern at theWhite House.

The new biography, which will be published on Monday, reveals intimidate details of Mr Jobs’s relationships and conversations with famous names ranging from fellow tech pioneers to showbusiness stars and political leaders.

Coming monday, a lot of these weird guesses about Steve’s live will probably – hopefully – stop.

"We don’t need a warrant, we’re ICE," and, gesturing to his genitals, "the warrant is coming out of my balls."

They’re called “ICE” because “Gestapo” is too hard to spell for them.

Report: Dominique Strauss-Kahn attended “sex soirees with prostitutes paid for by businessmen”

Posted on October 22nd, 2011 at 21:50 by John Sinteur in category: News


New reports about DSK coming out in the French press involving pimping, paying for possibly underage prostitutes with company funds, and related activities—some while in the United States— do not paint a more sympathetic portrait of the man whom multiple women have accused of sexual assault. A French police commissioner is alleged to have personally delivered prostitutes to him.

Tying It All Together (For Tom And Others On The Right)

Posted on October 22nd, 2011 at 21:44 by John Sinteur in category: Robber Barons


Capitalism didn’t die in 2008. That’s a convenient story, but it isn’t true. You can’t expropriate a broke man or a broke business; there’s nothing to take, even if you want to.

The truth is much simpler: The taxpayer was just plain robbed by the government and banks acting together.

If you think that $750 billion was a ridiculous subsidy to the TBTFs, or that they really didn’t join with the government to steal from the public during 2008, the epilogue over the next three years went from ridiculous to stupefying. From 2008 – 2010 we ran about $1,100 billion per year in additional deficits over the Bush years, for a total of $3.3 trillion. This too was sold as “for the people” but that was a lie. See, financial product credit (Z1 line Z1/Z1/LA794104005.Q) contracted from $17.1 trillion to $13.8 trillion today, or almost exactly the same $3.3 trillion. Mortgages, during the same period, would contract by about $600 billion while non-financial business credit remained pretty-much flat and State and local borrowing expanded. Put another way, the entire deficit addition over the previous multi-year baseline was literally given to the financial firms; the total amount of the taxpayer heist is over $3 trillion from 2008-2010, and as of the 2nd Quarter of 2011 we’re still literally stealing from the taxpayer and handing it to the TBTF institutions via government deficit spending.

Ps: The worst part is that we didn’t fix anything, especially the derivatives. In fact, with the consolidation and “swallowing” of failed firms in 08 and 09 the risks now are higher than they were three years ago, and we’re further down the road with the pyramid. We stopped it from falling over temporarily, but only by shifting the debt accreation to the Federal Government and, to a lesser degree, on the backs of students.

And that from a founding Tea Party member, origin of teabag idea, Obama-voter and supporter of OWS

If Alan Greenspan had personally visited your house, piled half of everything you own on the lawn, and set it on fire, he would have done less damage to you than he did during his tenure at the Fed. And I think Bernanke has burned half of what’s left.

What do you do, as a Veterans Administration, if you’ve got 400 acres of land, donated in 1888 to “establish, construct and permanently maintain” a branch of a national home for veterans, in an area with a growing number of homeless veterans?

Why, you lease it out to various businesses, of course!

“I’m an idiot and I’m willfully ignorant of what you are going to talk about”

There you have it – that’s why his parody of conservative news anchors is so spot on.

  1. Um, I think you might be confusing conservative news anchors with conservative political candidates.

Wile E. Coyote at it’s finest. I bet there is an ACME sticker somewhere on that thing.

  1. I’d pay money for that! Kewl! 🙂

Newsstand Is Driving a Surge in Magazine, Newspaper iPad App Subscriptions

For power users the Newsstand seems stupid and annoying, I suspect though that for many non-power users it is more of a “finally” type system. It makes searching for, downloading, paying for periodicals very easy.
