Blame it on the conservatives!

A co-worker came in today while I was having lunch and mentioned that "the conservatives" are to blame for the $5 billion or so that Ford has lost recently. It seems that Ford is advertising in gay magazines, and that the American Family Association takes exception to this and has launched a boycott against Ford. I don't know about you, but I consider myself a conservative (ok, a Libertarian -- I guess there's technically a difference). I'd never heard of this boycott, or even that Ford was mixing it up with the gay media. And I could care less about either one. It just annoys me that the liberals of the world think that all conservatives are gay hating religious nutcases.

I'm also annoyed at the AFA for giving a damn where Ford decides to advertise. If I'm a business, and I think there's a demographic I can target to buy my product, I'm going to advertise where that demographic is looking. Any company struggling as much as Ford has lately better be advertising everywhere they possibly can. If I were Ford, I'd be advertising my "Green Vehicles" in High Times! Get more hippies driving Ford hybrids! Oh, and what are those folks at the AFA doing reading gay magazines? Could it be maybe they have some latent homosexual tendencies they are secretly indulging in?

Hillary dodges tough questions

Nobody seems to have picked up on this yet, but I caught a little video on CNN's website yesterday that I just can't resist commenting on. Her royal highness, Hillary Rodham Clinton (is it Rodham Clinton, or just Rodham this week?), was in Iowa recently talking about how she's going to be a great president. Apparently there were a few tough questions tossed at her. One in particular that she expertly passed the buck.

Hillary was asked about how she can be so opposed to the war in Iraq even though she voted in favor of it, and what she'd do about it. Without saying anything about what she'd do, she put the entire blame for the war on Bush, criticized him, and said he better "extricate" us from this situation before he leaves office. That's all well and good. But that's not going to happen. Bush has us over there, because we're still needed over there. We're still going to be there when the next president takes office. The individual was asking Hillary what she plans to do about it. As is typical of Hillary and other Dems, there is NO plan!

Here's the video:

The Complete Military History of France

I have never tried to hide my absolute disdain for the french and their knack for getting in the way and whining when they don't get their way. You can tell me all you want that it's not the french people but the french government... It's the people who elect the government. If the people keep putting socialists in power, they deserve all the criticism they receive.

I'm not the only one with a desire to see the french humiliated. I stumbled across "The Complete Military History of France". In other words, a complete failure to win any wars or battles in the last several hundred years -- unless they're fighting amongst themselves or claiming credit for the victories of their allies.

Enjoy, and make fun of a frog today!

So there's a new user video content site out there (ala Google Video, YouTube, etc). No big news, except that I happen to work in the group that is responsible for making sure it stays up and fresh. It's called SuperDeluxe. Here's a little sample content I thought was funny.
