  • Bush Wins Florida in 2004
    t tell a ballot box from a garbage disposal commented Florida election official Jeff Thomson We ve just saved them the embarrassment in the voting booths Besides our way is faster Plus if they don t bother voting in the end our results are sure to be accurate Disenfranchised asked one Miami resident You young folk don t know nothing about disenfranchised Back in 30 when we were trying to vote for um oh I don t remember What was the question again Oh The 04 election Alton Parker against that nice Roosevelt kid I m going to vote for Roosevelt I think The preemptive vote in Florida is just the beginning said a Bush campaign worker We re calling this phase Shock and Awe the Kerry Campaign Aww crap said a shocked Kerry campaign advisor upon hearing the news Florida voted for George Bush before it voted against him Can we get a preemptive recount or something In a statement issued from his Crawford ranch George Bush called the earlier than scheduled elections a great victory for democracy and declared his Florida victory the end of major electoral activities in the country Mission accomplished In an effort to reinvigorate his campaign Kerry plans to travel from Florida to Ohio on a swift boat He has vowed to continue to fight for the Presidency just as he fought in Vietnam by fighting bravely but futilely then protesting afterward He also plans to receive various awards for injuries taken in the line of campaigning then pretend to throw them away This administration Kerry said in a statement Friday went into Florida without a plan to win the Keys He went on to explain that if elected he would never lead the country into another senseless unnecessary election He also took the

  • The Importance of Third Parties
    would you be able to tell who was the Democrat and who was the Republican For the past three months both parties have been trying to woo undecided voters from the center In many ways Kerry s rhetoric is to the right of Bush s Voting for a party to the left or right keeps the candidates honest Kerry verbally oppose gay marriage but it should cost him votes from the left Bush can proclaim his belief in health care and education but it should cost him the votes of evil people Kerry should have to woo the Green party just as Bush should have to woo the Libertarians When somebody votes for a third party the mainstream parties think Uh oh Somebody cares enough to vote but voted against us Maybe we should care about somebody other than the center 3 The centrist parties do not have a right to the votes of all civic minded people They also know that for every one person who voted for a third party three people didn t bother to vote because they feel the major candidates are indistinguishable Suppose you are a Revolutionary Worker Your candidate of choice is Chairman Avakian After that you have many choices including your grandmother Ralph Nader Karl Marx s ghost and Putin Somewhere toward the bottom of the list you get the capitalist pig Kerry A few rungs below Kerry you get the capitalist imperialist pig dog Bush You have three real choices First don t vote That way you don t give legitimacy to the system you oppose Unfortunately there are many other reasons you might not have voted Yours would be lumped in with the large number of people too lazy to vote Secondly you can vote for Kerry But you don t

  • Official Voting Guide
    a wrong decision and what you did to correct it Thank you BUSH I have made a lot of decisions some of them little like appointments to board sic you ve never heard of and some of them big And in a war there s a lot sic of tactical decisions that historians will look back and say you shouldn t have done that you shouldn t have made that decision And I ll take responsibility for them I m human But on the big questions about whether or not we should have gone into Afghanistan the big question about whether we should have removed somebody in Iraq I ll stand by those decisions because I think they re right That s really what you re when they ask about the mistakes that s what they re talking about sic They re trying to say did you make a mistake going into Iraq And the answer is absolutely not It s the right decision The Duelfer report confirmed that decision today because what Saddam Hussein was doing was trying to get rid of sanctions so he could reconstitute a weapons program and the biggest threat facing America is sic terrorists with weapons of mass destruction We knew he hated us We knew he had been a invaded other countries sic We knew he tortured his own people On the tax cut it s a big decision I did the right decision sic Our recession was one of the shallowest in modern history Now you ask what mistakes I made some mistakes in appointing people but I m not going to name them I don t want to hurt their feelings on national TV But history will look back and I m fully prepared to accept any mistakes that history judges

  • Virtual PC 7 for Mac
    almost reaching the performance of a 2 GHz Athlon I imagine that there s another factor here such as a smart caching or precompilation system that performs well for synthetic benchmark code which probably just repeats a small block of similar instructions This seemed more reasonable The Multimedia test pushes a bunch of difficult math down the pipeline using MMX or SSE where available The virtual CPU performed at half the level of a 500 MHz Pentium III on floating point operations and evenly between the 500 MHz and 1 GHz CPUs on integer operations I m guessing that since Virtual PC is targeted mainly at office applications they probably haven t done any particular optimizations for these extended instructions I m not sure what this vaguely named test actually does but it didn t tell me much The low Speed Factor makes sense cached instructions shouldn t run noticeably faster than instructions in memory since the virtual CPU s cache is probably implemented in the host platform s main memory anyway The virtual platform s memory bandwidth lands just behind the original nForce chipset with its dual channel DDR Not bad considering the Powerbook itself is only using PC2700 DDR The Powerbook s G4 CPU like Intel s Pentium M dynamically adjusts its clock speed to conserve battery power Amazingly while Windows and Sandra reported different clock speeds every time I checked the benchmark results never fluctuated by more than 3 5 regardless of how often I tested it and whether it was using AC or battery power The G4 s speed adjustment must be extremely effective giving any percentage of power on demand Gaming With these impressive CPU numbers I figured I d give gaming a try Virtual PC emulates an S3 Trio64 video card and a SoundBlaster
