Kate Gosselin TLC Special……comments….

My wife and I watched a good part of the Kate Gosselin Special on TLC tonight…..while one reviewer commented that it was about other things we found it to be centered on her, Jon and the Kids……Natalie Morales …came across to me as stiff, wooden and emotionless…and she seemed to handle this as a ‘hard’ interview……My wife also thought some of her questions where stupid and didn’t merit answers….and the girl could use a few good meals, she’s so skinny……..

While I’m not a big fan of the way Kate interacted with Jon…I found myself sometimes agreeing with her reasons on why she was doing several things…..namely…working, her need of a bodyguard (whom she defended, along with his family), my advice would have been to switch guys around,  and the fact the kids miss their extended family that filmed them, and having to live thru  Jon’s sexual reawakening……

My wife was not so forgiving…when Kate had to take time after her eyes wetted up when Morales asked her about husband….my wife didn’t buy it…..I’ve said this in previous posts… also my wife tends to not believe too much of what Kate says……

But this is the beginning  because…..Kate Gosselin is gonna to continue to do TV work (hence the plug for TV crew?)…she said so tonight……

And in the end my wife thought the whole thing was boring…..She only watched it because, I did so, to write this review…..

Thanks Honey……..

Are China's banks actually having trouble?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting in a little noticed piece, that China’s bank’s may be having trouble, like everyone did, six months ago……The piece goes on to say that their profits may in fact be just driven by expansion and may not reflect the sum of their assets?…hum??????

Didn’t they lend this country a boat load of money a few months ago?

Dede Scozzafava endorses Bill Owens..the Democrat in the NY-23 race turning on the GOP!!!

Oh, man this is unbelievable!!!!……..DeDe Scozzafava had the conservative’s throw her under the bus from all over the country…..because she was a moderate republican who believes in gay marriage and abortion…..after suffering withering attacks from national conservative republicans she watched her poll numbers drop into the basement…..Unable to raise money she quit on Saturday three days before the election for the US House seat in the NY State 23d House District….

Well, 24 minutes ago The New York Times did a piece that notes that Scozzafava has subsequently endorsed her Democratic opponent Bill Owens for the 23 District House seat…a stunning reversal!.…..

The GOP has served notice on moderate republicans…..you are not welcome…

The Democrats could use another ‘Blue Dog”…….

Oh, yea she was polling with 11% of democratic support….

The 'invisible man' Timothy Geithner reappears and reaffirms the push to stabilize the economy first and create jobs….

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was on NBC’s “meet the Press” today after being out of the spot light for a while…….he made a point on the show to maintain that the administration knows that the deficit is way too high…. but first things first…the economy needs fixing, then the jobs situation needs attending to, for political reasons and  with more jobs, increasing the flow of money into the system…..

He agreeded that the recovery has begun but it is uneven and will be slow in coming…..

The best thing he said besides acknowledging the need for job growth is the fact the small buisnesses need help also….most people do not know that the countries economy is runby samll business who vastly out number the mega corperations by multpiles……..

Manuel Zelaya to return to power in Honduras…..I don't agree…but I get it, now…

Today Charles Lemos  over at mydd.com highlights the upcoming agreement in Honduras to return the deposed former President Manuel Zelaya back to the Presidency for three months……I said at the time that I didn’t understand why the United States and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in particular where backing this guy (one of Chavez’s favorite people) when he was kicked out for disobeying his countries legislator’s and courts orders in holding a referendum of extending his term ……..

But Lemos spelled it out for me with this……….

The accords must still be approved by the Honduran Congress. Clearly the biggest winners are the Honduran people who had been held hostage by the crisis and who will have their verdict come November 29th respected by the Inter-American community.  It is also clearly a win for the President and his diplomatic team. It should not be lost that Latin American governments and the Latin American press across the board are touting the agreement as an Obama diplomatic success and it is generating a tremendous amount of goodwill towards the United States across the region.

Ah, politics……….

Scozzafava drops out of the race for the House from NY's 23th District…..

Moderate republicans are being hunted down by the parties conservatives………

Dede Scozzafava backed abortion rights and gay marriage, but was a republican…..And for that she was on her own with her party (and voters according to dropping poll numbers)…….Which forced her to drop out of the race in upstate New York’s 23rd House District….

On Tuesday..it will be Owens (D) against Hoffman (R)….And the race is close…….

Update:….here is a post on the NRCC flip-flop on Hoffmen…….and 11% of Scozzafav’s voters where democrats…where do they go?…..

Internet addresses will be able to include foreign scripts next year…….

The organization that controls the internet protocols, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, will begin accepting non-Latin alphabets to used as address (URL\’s) next year …That means that there will web addresses that will wholly written in native languages like Chinese and Arabic…….

The action is international in nature and moves the organization to become in tune with nearly half of its 1.6 billion users…..But uniquely non latin scripts probably won’t play to well outside the native language of a particular country…..

The system will need have internet addresses with country codes like .kr for Korea and .ru for Russia …but the organization wants to erase the requirement for those latin scripts completely in the future…….

While it will increase the number of internet addresses and usage…..As one person mentions in the piece …the greatest way to increase the internet use is to have more basic’s…like affordable computers…….

Note: Most people do not know that the US Government does in fact have a very central position in this companies technical operation, and that the company is located in Marina Del Ray, California…..Also that the company’s protocols are voluntary……….

The secretary is in Pakistan on the first day of a week long trip…..and she is keeping her security detail busy…..the trip stared with a bomb being set off upon her arrival in that nations capital…but Clinton still managed to hold meetings with the countries President and Foreign Minister, hold a presser, and give out awards to  ‘impoverished Pakistani women’……

Her schedule is booked almost everyday and the Secretary will decide if she will make any other stops in the region (Israel, Afghanistan or West Bank?)…

……The lady sure is busy…………….
