The Macho World of Desktop Support.

I help a friend out sometimes who has a small startup.  I hang out with the desktop support crew there sometimes, they are a stressed out bunch of macho geek’s who smoke cigarettes and eat the wrong kinds of food, all with knowing nod towards Star Trek and pc gaming.
These guys are the under appreciated grunts of the IT world who keep the servers, switches, routers and end users computers going.

Kill City-Album by Iggy Pop and James Williamson

Kill City is one of my favorite albums of all time.  I would say that it is in my list 75 albums all time.   The original vinyl record was green.
Iggy recorded this album in 1975 while on weekend pass from a mental hospital he was going to quit his drug addiction.
 I see Iggy’s kill city as a bridge catharsis from his unsustainable drug(heroin) induced lifestyle to his next stages of art/life and creativity.

Debt Ceiling Talks Big Scam.

Debt ceiling talks are a big scam to cheat the American people out of their Social Security and Medicare.

You didn’t hear any of this talk of debt ceilings when wall street was getting it’s bailouts.

Eyes On The Prize “Eurasia”

According to Zbigniew Brezezinski A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the worlds three most advanced and economically productive regions. A  mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia wold almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and  Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world’s central continent. About 75% of the worlds people live in Eurasia, and most of the worlds physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath it’s soil.  Eurasia accounts for about 60 percent of the world’s GNP and about three-fourths of the world’s known energy resources.
