“Campaigning on an insistent call for change, Obama outlasted former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in a historic race that sparked record turnout in primary after primary, yet exposed deep racial divisions within the party.”

This from Talking Points Memo.

I find it interesting that we can talk about the “deep racial divisions” but can’t be bothered to even consider the gender divisions. Villifying a woman for having the gall – The Gall – to run for president. It’s deeply, deeply sad.

Epiphany (Sort of)

I’ve made up my mind. I’ve decided who I’m going to vote for.

Edwards, if no Gore.

This speech has clinched it for me as of now. If gore doesn’t run, I’m Edwards all the way. He’s the only one that has ideas, the only one that shows he’s not just pandering, and the only one that gets pissed.  You have to skip past the introductions to get to the speech.

An Inconvenient Truth

Filed under: Geek,Life,Politics — ecogeek @ 4:49 am

Well I just saw An Inconvenient Truth, and I must say, it is as much as everyone says it is.  If you haven’t seen this, you have to see this!  Everyone needs to do their part.  We already do a lot of the things on the list, but you can always do more.  I plan on trying to make some kinda tech thing somehow.   I have an idea fermenting back there that could be a good one.

As for the lack of updates, (as if anyone reads this 🙂 ) I will try to update more in the future.  I think I may have even said that before…

Well, anyway, maybe this time it will stick.  Expect a more Climate Crisis slant on things in the future…

Behind Already

Filed under: Columbia,Life,Politics — ecogeek @ 11:08 pm

Well Here I am, behind already. So lets get caught up, shall we?

Day before yesterday I went sledding. Fell on my ass a few times but it was fun. *Note to self, ice is fast.

Yesterday I went to the first of many meetings for Imagine Columbia’s Future. This is a really cool effort, that when done, will make Columbia the very best place to live. (It’s already awesome, but it could be better). Too show how full it was, pictures will be forthcoming as soon as I can get them off of my phone.

Update: Here are the promised pictures.

Visioning. 2

I had a good time and I think we are really going to impact this city.

Not much happened of note today. So there. 😛
