From Squeaky: Obama commemorative coins “from the U.S. Mint” (true!) are actually 50-cent coins with Obama stickers on them.
The video says that the buyers were fooled by a bait-and-switch scheme, and were sold a false impression and hidden costs. Sounds a bit like a metaphor for the election as a whole, doesn’t it?
This is the most alarming thing I have seen all year. That massive spike on the right? That’s not a data error, that is happening RIGHT NOW. The money supply has almost DOUBLED in under a fiscal year.
A massive inflationary wave can’t be far behind. Seems to me the smart thing would be to buy up supplies and durable goods before the price increases come a’knocking.
Washington Post: Staff Find White House in Technological Dark Ages
Obama’s team is complaining, among other things, that they can’t access Facebook to “keep in touch with supporters”.
My understanding is that the campaign ended in November. Shouldn’t the White House be doing its job instead of taking quizes and exchanging SuperPokes?
They’re also whining that there aren’t many laptops, some software is out of date, and nobody told them how to add subtitles to videos on the website.
That’s all unfortunate and something that should be looked at, but one should keep in mind that George W. Bush’s staff arrived to find that Clinton staff had popped W keys off of keyboards, filled cabinets with glue, and planted pornography inside reams of paper to appear later in multi-page reports.
So stop whining and do your jobs.
