D Jim do you remember telling me when we were kids that"we know that there is no Santa because we saw our dad putting our presents together? This year I'm going to be Santa to our nephews. Merry Christmas.
December 25, 2009 at 7:15 am
Jim SchremppI don't remember that, but I can believe it. Gramps used to take us our for a drive on Christmas eve while the folks got out the presents. After 30 minutes he'd point to the sky and say, "Oh there goes Santa. Did you see him?" "Where? Where?" Then back home to a pile of loot.

L Reminds me of when Bush visited Nampa, Idaho. The few of us who were protesting were separated into groups of under 8 people each and spaced far apart and forced to stand within a confined space to "keep us under control." And, we were forbidden from speaking to anyone other than ourselves, although Bush supporters were allowed to say whatever they wanted to us. Tea-baggers have no clue what it's like to have their freedoms taken away. From this video, it's apparent they have no clue, period.

Jim Schrempp Internet & Technology - Cyberculture
We all know FB is trying to make money. I enjoy it and think it brings me some entertainment value. So I'm willing to pay a buck a month. Not everyone has to pay; keep the free accounts for those who don't want to pay. But for those of us who pay $12 a year we should get something in return. I'd suggest that paying users get: 1) 0 ads on the FB pages 2) Able to use all applications, but the apps cannot get access to our personal information - we are assured privacy 3) When a paying customer uses an app it will NOT pop up those annoying "share this with / invite all your friends" screens 4) Why don't you suggest something that you'd pay $12 a year for? By the way, I have no personal interest in FB. I just think they do a good job and I'd pay if I got rid of some annoying things they do to make money off me today. Jim
October 28, 2009 at 4:32 pm
B I would pay $24 a year, $2 a month, paid in a 1 years subscription. Tell Facebook. The real question is, how much do they take in?

Jim Schrempp <Quote> a window into the flaws in our health care system: we offer titanium shoulder replacements for those who don't really need them, but we let 32-year-old women die if they lose their health insurance. No wonder we spend so much on medical care, and yet have some health care statistics that are worse than Slovenia's. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/13/opinion/13kristof.html
About as many people who were killed on 9/11 die every two months because of our failure to provide universal insurance and yet many members of Congress want us to do nothing?

M OK, so powerfull people and organizations are politically acitve, not what I would call a journalistic breakthrough.
ACORN, SEIU, George Soros, MoveOn.org, UAW, etc., have put signifianct money and resources benind their political initiatives. As have large corporations and religous groups. Nothing new.
However, Rachel Maddow has done a journalistic breakthrough by showing how in detail President Obama speaking style is decpetive, and how he can outright lie to the America people while trashing our Constitution. Her words not mine, so don't kill the messenger. Worth watching no matter what your political affliation, just to see the power of his speaking talents.
