Who was Benazir Bhutto? I wish that was a real question. Unfortunately US government interventionism has created a Pakistani government that is at odds with the people of Pakistan. Why is the US taxpayer extorted to support President and General Musharraf to the tune of $700 million dollars a year (that they will admit to)? Why-why-why?

Right wing finger puppet says "I believe that Government officials Assemblyman Mark Leno, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris and San Francisco Police Chief Heather Fong want to prevent the public from defending themselves. Are they afraid that the peaceful residents of San Francisco, California might wish to defend themselves against criminal activity with a firearm they might purchase at a future gun show at the Cow Palace (originally known as the California State Livestock Pavilion)? The Cow Palace indoor arena is actually located in Daly City, California, bordering San Francisco."
Left wing finger puppet responds, "Naw, they just want to make sure that that visitors to the San Francisco Zoo understand that they would rather have someone killed by a wild tiger than allow people to own firearms for their lawful self-defense. Tigers and criminals will never be hampered by "illegal gun" over-enforcement, only those law abiding individuals who are prevented from arming themselves due to the chilling effects of autocrats like Gavin Newsom."
Voice from the back, "Perhaps they should work a bit harder on tiger control before they continue with their efforts on victim disarmament (e.g. gun control)."
BTW, the next Crossroads of the West gun show at the Cow Palace is January 19th and 20th in Daly City, California. If you print out this coupon you can obtain $1 off the price of admission.

Going by his last email to supporters Democratic Party candidate Bob Lord apparently thinks all he needs to do is repeat "I am not John Shadegg" enough times and people are going to magically forget that the Majority Democrats in the House have done as poor a job in advocating for the taxpayers as those congressmen who lost their seats in 2006. John Shadegg was not among them. Bob Lord needs to start articulating what he believes in rather than what he doesn't believe in. Bob Lord claims that we the people are hungry for change but I fail to see what the change is that he is promising to bring to us (other than more status quo). I do know is that Bob Lord apparently failed to ask for a speaking slot at the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers annual luncheon . I didn't see Bob Lord at the podium extolling limited government (perhaps he had a table in the back). John Shadegg did a very good job letting the audience know that he knows what America wants (less government). Perhaps Bob Lord was too busy repeating "I am not John Shadegg" to ask.
P.S. Bob Lord, no matter your spin on Mr. Shadegg's fund raising, opensecrets.org shows you as $125,000 behind.
P.P.S. Bob Lord, you might want to take a look at fellow candidate (AZ-3 Independent) Annie Loyd's web site for some ideas. I can tell what her position is on the ongoing Iraq occupation and I think that is a good thing.

I watched the initial take-off of the Ron Paul blimp. On one side of the blimp are the words "Who is Ron Paul?" with a subtitle of "Google Ron Paul" and I am told the other side shows "Ron Paul rEVOLution"
That is a very good question to ask: http://WhoIsRonPaul.name/
A few questions people should be asking:
Where is the John McCain blimp?
Where is the Rudy Giuliani blimp?
Where is the Mitt Romney blimp?
Where is the Mike Huckabee blimp?
Where is the Tom Tancredo blimp?
Where is the Duncan Hunter blimp?
and lastly... Where is the Fred Thompson blimp?
And should you wish to know exactly where the Ron Paul blimp is, take a look at the map.

Online photo editing. Today I wanted to reverse a photo and I couldn't find a program in my Macintosh that would do that. I tried three online photo editing web sites before I found phixr.com. Yea!
Should you wonder who the folks are at top right - they are the band World Class Thugs of Phoenix, Arizona.

I went to the monthly Maricopa County Libertarian Party meeting earlier today. Jim Burns was invited to address us. He is running for President of the united States and is seeking the nomination of the Libertarian Party. He asked all us us to visit his web site at JimBurnsForPresident.com. I was favorably impressed with what Mr. Burns had to say about the need for 34 united States Senators to prevent impeachment. I asked him where he was based out of and he said "Las Vegas" which I assume to mean Las Vegas, Nevada. He told us that he would be criss crossing the united States spreading the word. After the meeting wrapped up I shook his hand and and wished him safe travelling.

Rich Woman - Financial literacy for women. Today I was asked about the book Rich Woman: A Book on Investing for Women - Because I Hate Being Told What to Do! by Kim Kiyosaki. I didn't know much but I do know that everyone, including women, should educate themselves on personal finance. Education is power. You can see Kim Kiyosaki's latest video on her web site.

This is what I did this morning. I got up, took a bath, brushed my teeth. I had slept all the way through till past noon. I had broken two pledges. I was supposed to visit a friend and also give a ride to a friend of a friend. I felt bad. My first friend doesn't have a telephone so I hope she will forgive me. I hope acquaintance Mr. Y. will forgive me. I hope I can find Mr. Y's phone number so I can ask for his forgiveness as well. In any case I was ready for the day. I ask my nephew (his name is not John) if he wants to go on a walk. He says OK. I get my keys, hand Not John a empty food container with plastic pieces in it, turn of my light and get ready to go. I lock the door behind us. Not John has a baby baseball bat. I have on my lyme disease education program wrist band on my left arm. So we start off and I start telling him a story about a lady in New Hampshire. I say
There was this lady in New Hampshire and she was driving somewhere and the police stopped her. The police officer walked up to the lady and asked the modern day equivalent of Your paper's please.
TO BE CONTINUED.

If you enjoy watching ABC's "The View" and you want to learn more about Ron Paul the candidate for President, these two video clips will help. The first is 10 minutes, the second is 9 minutes. The first is Rosie O'Donnell and co. discussing Ron Paul. The second is Whoopi Goldberg and co. *with* Ron Paul discussing his positions on all the important issues.

In the battle for ideas, mindshare and money you can find some awesome clashes. Christine Smith of Colorado (Libertarian Party) is battling Ron Paul of Texas (Republican Party) for mindshare (and the rest). The debate floor is the campaign for President of the United States. If you look at the Googlebattle between these two contestants you will find that Christine Smith is currently the underdog. Who will prevail? I don't know.
