MY TURN: Obama deserves more credit than GOP gives

Written by Ed on January 31, 2012 – 10:48 pm -

Republicans and right-wing conservatives, desperate for any pretext to discredit President Barak Obama instantly and lastingly, are preemptively striking out to derail and demean any successes that may accrue to his administration. Philosophical differences related to governing and policy decisions are legitimate reasons to criticize any leader, including Obama. However, there are those who have not reconciled the fact that a black person is president of the United States. Their xenophobia consumes them and places them in a perpetual state of denial.

This is apparent in ridiculous lawsuits questioning the citizenship qualifications of Obama to be president and vicious lies regarding religion and cultural ties to his African born and bred father. A father he met only once according to BBC reporter Clive Myrie. In 2009, after speaking with people who knew Obama as a child, Myrie reported that in the late 1980s, Obama made an emotional pilgrimage to Kenya and discovered his father died a washed-up drunk, bitter and alone. Influence on Obama? Puhleeze.

Their wish is father of the thought that Obama is intellectually shallow, a closet Muslim, a socialist who hates free enterprise, reviles America, detests whites and all the other twaddle spewed out by Republicans. Their positions are insupportable so their best defense is a good offense.

OBAMA ELIGIBILITY CHALLENGES SPREAD TO 6 STATES

Written by Ed on January 31, 2012 – 12:42 pm -

An administrative law judge in Georgia could decide as early as this week whether voters in the state convinced him Barack Obama’s name should be removed from the 2012 presidential ballot because he is not qualified to hold the office.

But win, lose or draw, the fight isn’t going to be over, as other cases are erupting across the nation, with challenges being raised anew even in Obama’s own adopted political network in Illinois.

The Georgia hearing was before Judge Michael Malihi, and while none of the lawyers who appeared in the proceedings was willing to predict what the decision will be, several did confirm that Malihi had considered simply granting them a default victory, because Obama and his lawyers expressly stated they would not participate in a hearing to provide evidence that he is qualified to be on the ballot.

A default presumably would have meant a recommendation from the judge that Obama’s name be stricken from the ballot, a decision which would head for review immediately by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

WORLD’S SMALLEST HARD DRIVE BUILT OF ATOMS

Written by Ed on January 29, 2012 – 11:00 pm -

Just 96 atoms make up one byte of magnetic storage space.

THE GIST
Scientists have built a magnetic storage device made of 96 atoms.
The advance could lead to tiny hard drives able to store 200 to 300 times more information than they can today.

Hard drives could one day be the size of rice grains, powering music players so small they would fit inside your ear.

Scientists at IBM and the German Center for Free-Electron Laser Science have built the world’s smallest unit of magnetic storage, using just 96 atoms to create one byte of data. Conventional drives require a half a billion atoms for each byte.

The advance could lead to tiny hard drives able to store 200 to 300 times more information than they can today. Just imagine an iPod Touch that held 12.8 terabytes of music.

RUSH: OBAMA SPEECH A ‘FANTASYLAND’ OF LIES

Written by Ed on January 27, 2012 – 10:41 pm -

PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh wasted no time today attacking President Obama’s State of the Union address, calling it a fantasyland packed with untruth.

“It was chock-full of lies. It was fantasyland. No, it didn’t soar. It was boring,” Limbaugh said.

“There was nothing to set it apart, nothing about it that’s going to be memorable in a positive way. General Motors, the No. 1 car company in the world again? It just isn’t true. None of the economic news is true. He did two things. He lied. He tried to paint the economy as back. We are back, except where we’re not back, and that’s Bush’s fault.”

During the president’s speech, Obama focused on what he claimed to be a massive turnaround for American carmakers, saying, “Today, General Motors is back on top as the world’s No. 1 automaker. Chrysler has grown faster in the U.S. than any major car company. Ford is investing billions in U.S. plants and factories. And together, the entire industry added nearly 160,000 jobs.”
