You might have seen Pac-Man show up on the Google home page last Friday.  I did, and of course once I discovered that you could actually play the game, I did.  Just one game, though – too hard to win with just the arrow keys.  If I had a joystick, a lot more time might have been wasted.

Apparently, lots of other folks saw Google Pac-Man, and played: to the tune of 4.82 million hours.  Read one man’s analysis of the productivity lost at The Rescue Time Blog

John Kerry (who, by the way, served in Vietnam) said, during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor,  of voter anger at Washington:  “I think there’s a comprehension gap.”  Translation: you people are too stupid to realize just how much good the federal government is doing you, so stop complaining.  Never mind the double-digit unemployment, skyrocketing federal budget deficit, and the new taxes lined up to meet you from health care “reform”.  Lurch, BHO, and their confederacy of dunces are doing a ship-shape job.

This guy is about as far removed from reality as our Dear Leader.

iPhone 3GS

Though it’s totally unnecessary, I still get excited about the idea of upgrading to a new version of the iPhone.  I suppose it will drop sometime in July, if it’s like the others.  This will be iPhone number 4 for me (and for my son Josh, who has become an addict like me).

I’m looking forward to some of the many new capabilities.

Spain has already tried what Obama and the eco-freaks want to do here in the United States: create a “green” economy.  Guess what?  It’s failing: a Spanish professor has conducted a survey that shows for every “green” job created by the government, 2.2 jobs were destroyed elsewhere in the economy.  That sounds just like Obama’s prescription for our economy: ruin the private sector, and have everyone work a government job.

In Italy, the results are even worse.  Read about it at Reason Magazine

Greta VanSusteren interviews Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, whose poll numbers are climbing as a result of her signing the state’s new immigration law.  The interview is pretty lengthy, and there are  no real surprises.  Brewer basically pleads with the administration officials to read the actual legislation, and do the job of securing the borders of the U.S.  The actual “do your job” plea comes in the last 60 seconds, but the rest of it is worth listening to.

This guy is my hero. Presented with a new tax package from the state senate, it took Governor Christie less than two minutes to veto it. Apparently, the tax and spend idiots in the legislature still don’t get what he’s already said: no new taxes.

Here’s part of his statement:
“While I have little doubt that the sponsors and supporters of this bill sincerely believe that the state can tax its way out of this financial crisis, I believe that this bill does nothing more than repeat the failed, irresponsible and unsustainable fiscal policies of the past,” wrote Christie in his veto statement. “Now is not the time for more of the same. Ultimately, another tax increase will punish the state’s struggling small businesses and set our economy further back from recovery.”
