Change? What Change?

So this video is a couple of days old but Jon Stewart analyzed Obama’s inaugural speech with certain speeches of our former President and it showed quite a few similarities. Not exactly the type of hope and change you were hoping would come to Washington. Also, Wired.com is reporting that Obama is lining up his administration exactly with the previous one on the issue of warantless wiretapping. 

The Obama administration fell in line with the Bush administration Thursday when it urged a federal judge to set aside a ruling in a closely watched spy case weighing whether a U.S. president may bypass Congress and establish a program of eavesdropping on Americans without warrants.

Take off your optimism hats folks and get ready for a good dose of reality. We can all sit here and hope for things to change but we better keep the new President and his administration honest and true to their campaign “promises”. 

 

 

How disappointing.

Olympic Blue Screen Of Death

Not sure if many of you saw this and I personally didn’t see it during the opening ceremonies but apparently during the lighting of the torch, a visible BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) is projected on the ceiling of the Bird’s Nest. For all the painstaking efforts the Chinese put into making the ceremonies as perfect as possible and they certainly were a thing of beauty, more and more details are coming out about the faking of the fireworks, to replacing a 7-year-old girl singer with a “cuter” one who was just lip-syncing and now the Blue Screen of Death.

Here are a couple of pictures of the BSOD incident.

First a close up:

and this one that puts it more into perspective:
