Jesus, Microsoft. You do Suck

After taking a few days off for the holidays, I returned to discover that Windows needs to install 60 updates to my work computer. I unfortunately clicked ok.

My pc has been bogged down all day, bringing productivity to a crawl.

I've had to reboot TWICE so far, causing Norton's to activate a new scan each time, further killing productivity.

Windows also wants to install "Windows Advantage", aka "We want to approve everything you do".

I now have IE 8, whoop de fucking do. Now, none of the shit I had embedded in anything is visible anymore.

FUCK YOU Microsoft. I'm installing Firefox at work as soon as I get a chance.

Best Christmas Commercial Ever


Extortion does not equal charity

In this Christmas season, allow me to point out to the communists out there this simple fact:

Forcing someone at gunpoint to give you money is not the same thing as that person giving to charity.

Anymore than a mugger who's robbing to feed his family. Forced stealing is NOT the same as charity. One involves force. The other involves giving.

GIVING doesn't equal Stealing.

Taxes are enforced at the point of a gun.

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, China

On Christmas Eve, the senate votes to approve the Health care bill and extend the National Debt Ceiling to $12.4 TRILLION. Anyone reading this at least has the intelligence to see that those two are connected.

Doesn't it send up a red flag to you liberals that they insisted on getting this vote done on Christmas Eve? While dumb enough to be communists, some of you should have enough remaining synapses firing to tell you that they are hiding this. If they are hiding it, maybe there's a reason.

Jesus, people wake up.

Wonderful Pendants

While shopping today, we were exposed to the extensive pendant collection available from JCPenney. I invite anyone to explore their selection here.

My favorite?

Peace On Earth

This will be the first year in quite a while where Mrs Schwartz and I do not go to Binghamton for Christmas.
Last year was a debockle.

1) The Beagles and Ma Schwartz' cats just aren't a good mix.
2) The weather sucks.
3) It costs a bunch of money and time.

Since I haven't been getting much in the way of quarterly bonuses, and Mrs Schwartz can't buy a job, we figured it made better financial sense to stay at home and just enjoy each other's company.

I have the week off of work, so today we went to the Mall of Georgia for some shopping. Malls in general provide a fantastic opportunity to show that stupidy accumulates not linearly, but exponentially. Combine a few hundred people together, and the stupidity factor goes through the roof.

A Christmas Carol

AMC is playing a 1984 version of A Christmas Carol, starring George C Scott. It's excellent. I think I've missed it in the past because every time it comes on, I think, "Oh God. Another telling of this."
If you see one telling of this story, make it this version. It's that good.

Xmas Comes Early

I can't believe I've become one of those people.

Mrs Schwartz insists that Susan is always shivering cold when she comes in from the backyard. Amidst her relentless nagging, we went to Petsmart yesterday and bought Susan a sweater.
