Read Some News & Instantly Talk About It!

1.uk-internet-blog-traffic-reaches-all-time-high-chart_1 7-Habits-InternetIn my opinion, all these news-blogging websites are the same thing wrapped up in a different package. This age of faster and faster news-cycles combining with worldwide communications expanding to new heights has spawned a new phenomena of people like myself feeling the need to respond to every single news story in all the world.

Then expound upon some line of thought in some blog and someone comments-back: “Keep it short and sweet.” Sometimes there is none of that. Sometimes I run out anything and we end up with the new and famous and amazing micro-blogging (Tweet)!

The FOX Nation

The ‘protectors’ of the freedom of speech and ’balanced’ media have opened up a talking-back-at-you website. They let my liberal stuff through just like anyone else.

Huffington Post

This site has morphed from comment moderation taken to new tyrannical heights and has landed right back where all the internet is, sanity. Though I’ll the first to admit that almost every post on the website is written by a liberal.

The Guardian

I don’t live in the UK but this news-site has always caught my eye. I just think they have better articles than a lot of American media to discuss or reference.

Your Blog

I might have promoted you and you never knew it. I try and point out anything I think is great in both credible source and just pure internet source. If you have a blog I am the one who just randomly spread it around on Facebook or maybe Stumble.

YouTube Threads

I have no idea why people do this but YouTube comment threads often become beyond the limits of sanity in terms of length, and the dialogue goes beyond any measure of civility in about 90% of the cases. I can barely ever help myself, I’ve allowed myself to childish and tawdry while speaking to vile and hostile people. If you like car-crashes and Jerry Springer … you might want to just read the comments under a video without even bothering with whatever the original post was.

It’s just my point of view.

That it all fits in the same pale. One big not-so happy family of internet traffic.

The only credibility on most internet posting is attached to the credibility of the domain combined with the author. I’ll listen to anybody, but I’m not about to try and attach any level of credibility to myself. This all just my opinion. But I think some certain few out there somehow manage to get opinion and real news confused in all the commotion of the New Media.

The Libra-Scorpio Cusp

There remains many definitions within Astrology in terms of the issue of the “cusps.”

Much debate between the hippie mothers and the Wiki doth battle…

Each net-source I go to has a different idea and notion on this one. No big shock to me. You gotta read those big stuffy books that don’t fit on your lap to get down on this vibe!

I’ve been told to be a Full Cusp in Libra-Scorpio you have been born on October 22nd, in the afternoon. Which is me. Think some of my own research backed that up … that was an age ago that I read books on Astrology instead of Astronomy.

I’m more on the scientific side of things these days but there is no doubt in my mind that some amount of truth lies within Astrology…

Harry Shearer Dies Horribly in Manure Spreader Accident

Harry “too-cool-for Julius” Shearer was taken in a surprisingly mundane gardening accident involving only a baby-carriage and a manure-spreader. Authorities remain baffled.

In his interview just prior to this incredible incident [Coast to Coast AM, 12/19/08] he reflected that he may write a piece for Huffington Post regarding the difference of the days after November 4th 2000 and the days we reside within now after November 4th 2008.

He shared that the presidential transition period in 2000 seemed to happen in a blur of political and legal commotion while this transition was akin to slowing pulling off a band-aid in slow motion. Please read him in his own words by visiting The Huffington Post website.

I wanted to share what someone who only just barely able to vote against Bush in 2000 as I turned 18.

To me the entire period of time with the Supreme Court handling the Gore case and until Gore conceded the election was like a strange time bubble.

At first I wanted Gore’s case to voiced and heard in the Court but as time went on and there was no physical evidence being produced I became more and interested in just having a President already. I didn’t want Bush but in my mind at the time having a leaving lame-duck Clinton Presidency and a large question mark as to who will be sworn in left me with a bitter taste in my mouth.

All the news media chatter on both sides back then didn’t help me escape this time bubble of anticipation.

It is not as bad in terms of the Supreme Court has dismissed the cases against President-elect Obama and there is no giant question mark for everyone either.

But I still feel that same space-time this time coming from our lame-duck President Bush and his non-stance on the auto bailout after pressing so heavily for the bank bailout is proving that he still doesn’t get it even after eight years.

It’s called salient hypocrisy.
