    Poll: 78 percent don’t trust big government

    Nearly 80 percent of Americans say they can’t trust the federal government and they have little faith that its massive bureaucracy can solve the nation’s ills, a new survey finds.

    dammit…that says that 22% of all Americans now work directly for the government!

    This is a lengthy quote from Rasmussen, but I want to show how the numbers indicate the Dems are in big trouble.

    Reagan, the Republicans as the Party of No, and the Tea Partiers hold the advantage. And all of this is happening despite the constant bias and spin of the media.

    Obama may try to wag the dog, but from these numbers I think that dog won’t hunt! 🙂

    57% Have More Trust In Those In Congress Who Voted Against Bailouts

    Just 21% trust the judgment of a Congress member who voted for bailouts more. Another 22% are undecided….

    Voters have opposed bailouts from the start. Most continue to believe they were the wrong thing to do and bad for the economy. Voters consistently opposed the bailouts from the start.

    Fifty-six percent (56%) of all voters also agree with President Reagan’s declaration in his first inaugural address in 1980 that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

    …Seventy-four percent (74%) of voters correctly identify Republicans as the political party some have labeled the Party of No. Despite, or perhaps because of, this high level of awareness, Republicans have built a solid lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot.

    Twenty-four percent (24%) of voters now consider themselves a part of the Tea Party movement. Another 10% say they are not a part of the anti-big government movement but have close friends or family members who are.

    Most voters (52%) believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.

    I think they will because IMO those numbers are from people who are informed. I doubt that the opinions were formed through emotion or soundbites. Obama & the Dems actions have been a 2 x 4 to wake people up and now they’re paying attention.

    Not downing ya MFG because really I don’t know the answer. But it does seem counter to his posturing so far.

    I cannot imagine Obama doing this for any reason, up to and including imminent nuclear attack on the US by Iran. Even in retaliation.

    If Obama feels election pressure seriously enough that he feels SEIU and Acorn, plus the Black Panthers and La Raza haven’t got his back, he would sooner declare martial law and unleash the US mil on American patriots than unleash it on Iran.

    I don’t see that happening at all.

    Ace publishes his new server specs:

    Dual Xeon 5670 (total 12 x 2.93GHz cores)
    24GB ECC Registered RAM
    Adaptec 5805 RAID controller with battery backup
    3 x 2TB disks, RAID-5
    3 x 32GB Intel Enterprise SSDs, RAID-5
    2 x Gbit ethernet – 1 for the the private network, 1 for the internet link (yep, we have a full gigabit link to the internet)
    Dual (redundant) power supplies
    Running CentOS 5.4, latest OpenVZ and CPanel

    The server is upgradeable to 12 disks total and 144GB of RAM

    I want one of these for my new desktop, it’s basically the USS Enterprise on a table.

    My old server is now my desktop, it’s 2-dual core Opteron 280s, 6gb corsair ECC registered PC3200, and 3 500gb Seagate SATA2 formerly running RAID and now just sitting there grinning at each other.

    I added a Geforce 8800GTX for games in 2007 and now the system is 5 years old and has run windows server 2003, winXP, Vista, and now Windows 7.

    Getting a bit long in the tooth, but still ok, and the video card can be upgraded any time.

    The CPUs can be clocked to 3ghz, but unfortunately the motherboard is an Asus K8N-DL which, unlike most Asus mobos, can’t overclock much.

    I just glanced at the relief map of Iran. Gates is scrood. Iran in many ways is like a larger version of Switzerland. She is bordered by mountains on the three primary sides of the country. Best approach would be from the Afgan side. Problem is lift capability into Afghanistan is a problem. Iraq would probably balk at the US using them for a base.

    Gates, good luck ole buddy!

    My boys PC is actually faster than mine in every way except disk performance, and I paid $600 for it, while I paid a total of about $2500 for this boat anchor I’m typing on now.

    Mostly because of the new video card.

    An ATI radeon 5770 for $150 end of last year, beats the pants off the 8800GTX I paid $400 for in 2007.

    Technology, bah.

    Electronics is one of those deals that if you can afford to wait, really you can. The price of what is new, becoming middle age happens so fast it hurts my neck.

    I did the whole custom Lian Li case with neon lighting on this thing though, with 6-inch high cooling towers for the cpus, so that was I dunno, 4 bills worth of crap that the cheap machine didnt have, plus I got a larger monitor that cost $200 more than the screen on the kids’ so that was a big factor in the price.

  27. 2010 April 18 7:16 pm
    rightwingyahoo permalink

    still though, apples to apples, a $1200 price difference is significant.

    I got the mobo for like $50 from a buddy, and I wanted to build it into a system, and estimated a grand, at most, to get it all set up.

    Then I discovered the wonders of dual-dualcores (which is nothing now, with 12-core cpus coming out.) and registered mem. I was at $1000 by the time I had ram, cpus, and mobo, without a case, power supply, screen, drives, or anything else.

    Sorry I am a cheap scumbag on parts. Have 4 new high tower cases still in the box only because the deals were so good. With discounting I don’t have more than $30 in for the whole batch. I usually buy one generation back on the motherboard. I agonize real hard on the vid card. Most vid vendors don’t like sharing code with the Linux folks. So most often a new card just won’t work or have the performance like in Windows.

    Hate to say it but a core duo still does really well for my desktop. Next one will probably be a quad. Just can’t justify more cores.

    So one more thing on this stupid computer.

    Case fans:

    4 on the side for cooling the cpu towers, plus 2 on the towers.
    3 on the aftermarket video cooler
    1 on the power supply, removed the chipset fan as it was way too loud.
    4 on the rear of the case and 2 blowing on the drives, all speed adjustable.

    16 total fans, and if you keep the rpms below about 2500, the whole case up and running, is virtually silent, believe it or not.

    Anyway I never built a box with more than 4 stupid fans, so whatever.

  31. 2010 April 18 7:23 pm

    That many fans you would think the computer would ask for clearance for take off.

    Dual core is all you need. Very few apps will even stress a quad.

    My biggest money wasting pc is my laptop. Paid $1400 for it in 2007, for a 2.0 ghz dual core and a go7600 video, a decent gaming-modeling laptop pc, with a 17″ screen.

    So that was expensive, since you can get way more than that now for a grand.

    Then, HP having become a plastic banana company under Carly, forgot to design a proper cooler and my motherboard fragged a week after the warranty ended.

    So $400 to replace that, and the vendor did not have the original part, the 2.0ghz cpu and 1440×900 video, so I got a 1.8ghz with 1680×1050.

    Slower for more money. I like that. who wouldn’t right?

    So a $1700 piece of trash. I got Windows 7 running on that too, and it seems to do a snappier job than Vista with only 2gb ram to work with.

    Stupid hp.

    That’s what I get for buying a laptop, as fast as desktops go obsolete, laptops are even worse because you can rarely upgrade them, and the hard drives are SLOW to keep heat down into the bargain.

    could that be reworded and shortened to be “Oba-zombies”?

    Diana West on Col. West (no relationship–just kindred in mind!):

    Col. West is the commander who, back in the early days of Iraq, came to national attention for having fired off his gun near the head of a suspected insurgent in order to extract information about ambush and assassination plots targeting him and his men. After this interrogation, there were no more attacks on Col. West or his men….

    “There are rules and regulations, and there’s protecting your soldiers,” Colonel West told the New York Times some time after the controversy had led him into retirement. “I just felt I’d never have to write a letter of condolence home to a `rule and regulation.'” Or, as he put it during the emotionally charged hearing to determine whether he would face a court martial (he did not), he would “go to hell with a gasoline can in his hand” to protect his troops.

    So you spend $7500 on 5 machines, and end up 3 or 4 years later working on old machines, because you have to keep them going to get your money out of them, plus your family members are always keen for one of your hand-me-downs when you upgrade.

    Now, that may sound like a lot, but really it’s nothing compared to what you’ll spend on software. Nothing at all.

    Col West is the kind of man I’d like to follow in battle, if that ever happened. The man was serious about protecting his soldiers and getting the job done, which is the only reason a soldier’s life should be put at risk.

    And what did the Armed Forces do? Cashiered him.

    Proof the US is not serious about fighting to win. It’s not like he even shot the guy.

    JR, I’m picking up links from comments at HA. Here’s another one:

    Allen West Knows Jihad—The Enemy Ideology

    “You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why him why he was fighting the Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at Lepanto why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask…the Germanic and Austrian knights why they were fighting at the gates of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it is called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453?

    You need to get into the Koran…and understand their precepts. This is not a perversion. They are doing exactly what this book says….

    Until you get principled leadership in the United States of America that is willing to say that, we will continue to chase our tail, because we will never clearly define who this enemy is, and then understand their goals and objectives—which (are) on any jihadist website—and then come up with the right (and) proper objectives to not only secure our Republic but secure Western civilization.”

    Bunny rabbit will not goto war or strike first against Iran. Any bluster you hear otherwise is either a PR move by the president or generals who have advised the president to do something and are positioning themselves for later instead of just having the courage to resign.

    Iran without a change of government will get nuke weapons, my advice, plan for a world that includes that sooner rather then later. Plan for a world where several other middle east states kick-off there own crash course programs to do the same, and hold oil over everyone heads to obtain the technology on the DL.

    KH, your analysis is 99% spot on, IMHO. I only disagree on the nuclear arms-race in the Middle East…I don’t believe there will be time for it. I expect Iran to ratchet up the rhetoric immediately upon getting the bomb…and force the other Middle East countries to either assist in destroying Israel, or agree to NOT assist in Israel (Saudi airspace, for example). Israel will then have no choice to but to attack…and then all hell will literally break loose.
