Not sure what to think

WTF? just takes off and leaves Bill to have a press conference?
Obama walks out of press conference

Hey dipshit, if your wife can't handle having to wait for you to do your job then resign.

NY fails again

Why keep letting people get on I90 when it is already at a standstill?

buffalonews is cuomo's lap dog

The totally ridiculous hit piece in the snooze today was pathetic.
Yes Paladino has a bad case of foot in mouth disease but the only true racist is the writer of that article that obviously feels blacks should automatically get campaign support simply for being black. Who cares who is most qualified or has the better ideas, if they're black you better give them more money than anyone else.

Glad to see my decision to not buy the paper is still the correct one

the crazy obama outfits countinue

WTF? Ok, the kid is a kid so you can't really fault her for choosing that outfit, but for Michelle to allow her kid to wear that while meeting a foreign dignitary, the King of Spain at that, speaks volumes towards michelle's lack of class

Another weekend another rash of shootings in Buffalo.

All the attention is going to the City Grill shooting where eight were shot and four have died, but there were multiple other shootings this past weekend including some fatalities.
There is no easy solution but I have a couple ideas.
Mandatory minimums for possession of a gun while committing another crime. I'm thinking for a felony make it 10 years minimum and if the felony being committed already has a minimum of 10 or more years then the gun parts tacks on an additional 5. For a misdemenor where the perp directly encounters a victim (so not a case of breaking into an unoccupied car for example) the crime gets bumped to a felony with a 5 year minimum. Felon in possession (meaning a convicted felon simply possessing a gun not necessarily actively using it another crime) should be at least a 5 year minimum but I'm leaning towards 10. These times would be doubled on a second offense.
These minimums probably wouldn't change the thug culture but it would at least get them off the streets for longer amounts of time and it might make some of the less hardcore thugs decide not to use guns.

Additionally people need to wake up and realize that the so called "thug culture" is not acceptable. Parents need to get back to disciplining their kids and all levels of society need to get back to taking responsibility for their actions. Far too often someone screws up and instead of admitting they screwed up they blame everyone and everything but themselves. Having multiple children by multiple fathers, none of whom are married to the mother needs to stop and it definitely should not be rewarded through increased welfare benefits, although my welfare rant might be better served with its own post.

One excuse that is often heard is that it is due to poverty. Bullshit. I grew up outside a small town and although my school district was fairly well off with most families being comfrotably middle class or higher there were also a number of poor families. Their kids didn't act like thugs and glamorize violence. If anything the "thug lifestyle" causes the poverty not the other way around.

Go big or go home. Byron Jr arrested for shoplifting Hanes T-shirts

Sorry Shredd and Ragan for using your police blotter catch phrase without prior permission, but when I read the articles about the mayor's son and what he stole that is what came to mind.

Is anyone actually surprised?

I know I'm not. I started saying years ago that I'd be more surprised if Bass Pro did come here than if they did not.

Buffalo News

So the Buffalo News is going to get rid of anonymous comments. Bad move in my opinion. There is a sign on required and a username so it's easy enough to look at a poster's name and know if it is someone you know posts garbage. On the other hand people that have useful information may be less likely to comment. I once wrote a letter to the editor and it was printed. Some dude looked me up in the phone book and called me about it. WTF? Granted he agreed with me, although from what I remember he took his opinion on the subject farther than I would, but it was still creepy and caused me to not write any more letters to the editor.

I guess "anonymous sources" are fine when the media wants us to blindly accept what they write as the truth but not when the readers want to comment in return.

Hey obama, focus on fixing the porblem not fixing blame

there will be plenty of time to fix blame and sue people later. Right not the gov't needs to be focused on working with BP to fix the fucking leak. If obama was a real leader that would be the focus of his speeches, not talking about how they're going to make BP pay.

Buffalo's patheticness continues. Stanley Cup

Ok, I understand that Patrick Kane is from Buffalo but all this coverage the last few days about the Blackhawks win is pathetic.

Does Buffalo suck so much that we have to worship another city's victory?

Hey Carl

Hey Carl,
Sorry your campaign crashed as fast as it did, but maybe you've made a world record or something.

Anyway, can you send me the unedited version of the one with the brunette standing there with her hands on her hips and a slight smirk?

Smallville last night was epic

Although I know nothing about the old "golden age" DC characters including the Checkmate and Suicide Squad organizations that episode last night was awesome. Should have included the Smallville Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. Ever since they started introducing other superheroes I've been pumped to see them get properly organized.

ultra mini desktops

Dell recently came out with the Zino

and now Acer has the AspireRevo 3610 and AspireRevo 1600

I don't plan on getting one, but I can see a few specific tasks they could fill nicely:
Guest pc for internet use if you often have people staying with you.
Hook it to a tv for non HD, or HD if the hardware will do it but I'm not sure if it will, video playback
Hook it into a stereo and use it for a jukebox
Mame/dosbox/80s-90s console emulator
Remote desktop/VNC into your more powerful system
Add a second ethernet interface via USB and use it as a router if you need something more versatile than even DD-WRT or similar firmware can do but can't afford something like a Cisco router
