Blacks only?

An imam from Chicago is giving a speech to people in Detroit and has requested that only 'african-american' people be allowed to attend.
Now I'm not 100% sure, but I think that Cobo Hall is owned by the City of Detroit, thus supported by not only city tax money, but state tax money.
Could you imagine the national uproar that would have taken place had a white 'religious' leader held an event at a publicly owned facility and specifically requested that whites only were allowed to attend? Holy cow, you'd have hell on earth, between the New York Slimes, seeBS, and the rest of the unholy cabal of socialistic ass-kissers that are the mainstream media.
Was this front page news, even in Detroit? Nope. Ok, front of one section? Nope. Buried on page 7, of section F. Pathetic.

Could someone please figure out who invented political correctness and push them under a train? Please.

Port controversy- Part II

While I hate to see people like Hildebeast Clinton and Chuckie Schumer able to make political hay with something, I have to agree with them on one point. It doesn't hurt to take our time to examine the deal that turns over the operations of some of our ports to a company that is partly owned by a country that refuses to recognize Israels' right to exist to this day. Of course, that's not why these idiots are railing and gnashing their teeth against the president on this. They just want something to disagree with him on, and in this case, they have finally found something that they may get some political traction with.
No one can tell me that finally, out of the blue, the DemoncRATs have finally decided that security is important. Remember, these are the people who want us out of Iraq immediately. These are the people who are blaming US for the attack on the WTC(both of them), due to our arrogance around the world, blah blah. These are the people who would rather see the military neutered and used as a police force, in places like Bosnia and Haiti, rather than as the trained killers they are. Yep, you heard it here. They're trained to KILL people. Makes the DemoncRATs uncomfortable to even say that word. So for them to even advance the mere notion that this is about security is laughable.
But since we're already reviewing the deals that have been made with this Dubai-based company, why don't we review some of the deals made with China-based companies? I'm not talking Taiwan here, I'm talking Commie-Red China.
Terrorists have suicide bombers, China has nukes. Which gives you the bigger chill up your spine?

Pandora-Nope, not an advert

For those of you who have trouble finding online music that matches your musical tastes, Pandora is for you. Seriously, this site is pretty slick. Basically, you create your own channel, by giving it a name of an artist or a song. Then the engine goes through and selects music by artists that are about the same style, or songs of the same style. You can also create multiple channels, which works out good for folks like me who have varying musical tastes based upon our mood. So far, the engine has been pretty accurate. It's part of the Music Genome Project. I'll quote from their site:
Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.
Anyway, for those of you who are curious how good it works, give it a try. The more people who try it, the smarter it'll get, picking the right songs.

For those of you who have the musical tastes that may not fit into the mold, you may not find what you want here, but for those of us who are semi-mainstream, it works out pretty well.

Ok, so let's review:
1. A British company owned the rights to operate six ports in the US.
2. That company sells the port operations division to a joint state-private operation from the United Arab Emirates.
3. DemoncRATs FINALLY agree with Republicans that we need to concern ourselves about security, and that we should review this deal, but only because it makes President Bush look bad.
4. No one actually realizes that if it's not someone from UAE operating the ports, it would be the ChiCom's (Chinese Communists, not Taiwan), thus not providing a whole lot more security than UAE, since the three biggest companies that do this sort of operations are Chinese and Arabic.
5. Halliburton is bandied about by people who wouldn't know security if it hit them in the middle of their forehead, such as Charles Schumer and Diane Feinstein, as an option to do the port operations. That would be the same Halliburton that is evil and only cares about profit, and only gets work because of their relation to Vice President Cheney.
6. Most of the people who are in opposition to this deal, are doing so because this is an Arabic country. Were this primarily a Republican issue where a DemoncRAT president was supporting the deal, we'd hear screams of racism throughout the liberal camps. However, since it's DemoncRATs that are making the objection, it's about security. Isn't that profiling?
7. Having personally BEEN to UAE, and been to the port in Dubai, out of all the ports in the Middle East, it's the one I felt the safest in. Even Bahrain, which was pretty nice, didn't exactly give me the 'warm-fuzzies' when it came to security. Whereas the Dubai port actually had police swarming the ports, in their Mercedes and AK-47's.
8. Let's not forget that this company operated a schload of ports overseas. As a result, even if they don't operate the ports here, they LOAD the ships and thus have control of what gets on the ships. Considering the lack of customs officers we have to inspect every single ship, we're already trusting them with a considerable amount of responsibility.
Honestly, I think that a whole lot bigger deal has been made of this than there really should have been, and I don't care one way or another who operates the stinkin ports. But I think because the libs see this as a way to make political hay, as well as the complicit media, it's front page headlines.
I also think that the administration could have done a helluva lot better job handling the deal, and you'd think after their mishandling of Harriet Miers, the Cheney hunting accident, etc, they'd learn, but apparently that's not exactly their forte. However, protecting this country IS, and I trust them to make the right decisions to do so.

A Salute

A salute to the search engines that have bent over and taken it from the Chinese government:

The UN can suck my balls

From TheReligionofPeace.com :

An al-Qaeda terrorist packs his clothes at Guantanamo Bay, while a political activist slowly expires from torture endured at a Zimbabwe jail. The first is a plotter of mass murder, the second a democracy advocate in a nation that sits on the UN Human Rights Commission. Which is the UN the most concerned with?

This would be the same UN that John Friggin Kerry would have turned over Iraq to. The same UN that John Friggin Kerry along with the rest of his fellow Democrats would have us turn over our defense to, as well as have to consult with every time we make an international move.

Last month Kofi Annan posed in front of a map that had no Israel on it, in recognition of the 'plight of the Palestinian people'. If there is another world organization that is more anti-Israel than the UN, I've never heard of it, unless of course we're talking about Nazi's, but they're not organized enough to be able to squander billions of dollars on lost causes, line their pockets with that money, and still have nothing to show for it other than arrogant third world dirtbags that if it wasn't for the UN would be peddling their wares in downtown ScrewBukTu.

Let's hope that our UN ambassador, John Bolton, carries a bigger stick with him than our previous ambassadors as he deals with their constant stupidity.

Idiots..all of them.

Dear Google

My poor Googlians. You've lost about $32 billion in market cap over the last month or so, you've taken on the federal government in a pissing match over privacy but turned around and released Google Desktop 3 which is the most invasive piece of software that won't be picked up by an antivirus out there. You've bent over and taken it from the Chinese government when told to censor search results for their citizens.
A PR machines worst nightmare over the last month or so, I'd say. And that's not to mention the fact that your two biggest shareholders bought a jet for themselves, all the while telling employees and anyone who will listen to 'conserve energy and not waste fuel'. Not just any jet mind you, but a 757 for chrissakes. No fuel consumption concerns there, nosirree.
While I know you've been the darling of many portfolios, mine included until last Veterans Day, it's nice to see you finally losing the shine as your real business practices come out. I guess it's just natural for you to want to allow everyone who's running Google Desktop to share in their files, given your natural tendency toward Communal preferences. Good to see that security folks as well as privacy folks are finally pushing back.

The Big Johnson

Oh, one more thing: Google Sucks

Marine screwed by Democrats

Mark this day down folks....the first time (and probably the last) you'll EVER see a link in my blog to something that Mother Jones News site. Paul Hackett, a Marine and Democrat (there's a contradiction if I've ever seen one), who narrowly lost to a Republican last election in a heavily Republican district, was running against Mike DeWine for Ohio Senator. However, he had to win the primary, and running against him was a long time DemonRat insider, Sherrod Brown. It looks like the high ranking DemonRat leadership decided that Brown would be easier to control and force to vote the party line than the independent-minded Hackett, and as a result have resorted to their typical nasty tricks and backstabbing methods to force Hackett out of the race.
Now 90 out of 100 times I'll disagree with Hackett, as he's a pretty far out there character, but at least he has the strength of his convictions and is willing to put it on the line for what he believes in. Unlike the gutless cowards that lead his party, the Whored Dean's, Hairy Rod, and Teddy (hic) Kennedy, he has the balls to stand up and speak his opinions irregardless of how the polls will respond. While he would have been an opponent of most of the things I support, I have to respect an opponent like that as a worthy one. Semper Fi Mr. Hackett. Perhaps you'll reconsider your party affiliation once you realize that we're not all religious zealots, but either way, thanks for showing us what hypocrites the Dumbocrats are.....AGAIN

IE 7

So, I downloaded Internet Explorer 7, beta 2 and installed it. While it has an interesting interface, and offers tabbed browsing, much like Firefox, I've yet to make a true opinion on it. Let me use it for a weekend and I'll be able to tell ya more. However, I have found that posting to the blog is a bit tough because the text in my blog is white, and the compose function in Blogger is now using the published color, rather than the black I used to get. Perhaps that's just a glitch on my site, but I'd expect that it's a 'beta' thing. I'll keep you updated.

New links

As you may have noticed, I've added some more links off to the right there.....
Two are friends of mine that have started blogs, Zimted and DoubleM, but the test there will be whether they're still writing in a month.

The other two are about as contrasting sites as you can get. Peacemoonbeam has got to be one of the funniest sites I've read in a long time. I was seriously laughing in my office as I was reading the posts, and people would walk by, looking at me like I was nuts(which probably isn't far from the truth). Someone THAT talented has got to get more publicity, and I'm doing my best to make sure that y'all know about them.
The Religion of Peace is an extremely powerful site that shows the cost of radical Islam and the mullahs that continue to exploit their followers to do things that they don't have the guts to do.

Take a read at both. I think you'll probably want to read Peacemoonbeam AFTER the Religion of Peace, as you'll need some lightening of the mood after that.

Katrina fatigue

Ok ok...this will probably piss some folks off, but I'm gonna say it out loud. I'm going to say the thing that some of you have probably thought to yourself but decided that it wasn't politically correct to say. I'm going to repeat the thing that my wife said last night that I've been saying for a week.
Why is it that people from New Orleans, whose homes were wiped out, and who have since moved to other places and restarted their lives, gotten jobs, and moved on, why is it that I'm (I use 'I' as a symbol for all American taxpayers) paying their rent to stay in hotels, apartments, etc? And why is it that liberals expect that this will just be an ongoing expense for the American taxpayer?
I mean, I feel bad for folks, and have not only donated money, but clothing, food, and other things. But how long is this going to go on? How long do I have to pay the rent for someone who's GOT A JOB?! People are complaining that the benefits are being cut and I'm supposed to feel sorry for them? Are you kidding me?
As someone who lives in Michigan, where natural disasters are as rare as an IQ over 100 in Hollyweird, I resent the fact that I have to pay for the people who CHOOSE to live in areas where natural disasters may strike. I understand the freak tornado, windstorm, flood, etc. But when you live in coastal Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina, or Texas, you gotta know that you're going to get hit with hurricanes occasionally, and while I don't mind helpin a brother out, we shouldn't be expected to do it every year.
Someone quoted some numbers about insurance payouts and how Michigan citizens pay $150 million in flood insurance payments and are only paid out about $39 million. Thus that other $111 million ends up in other states, paying for other peoples issues. And when issues like Katrina happen, we don't mind helping out, but as far as footing that much of the bill, it's not right.

Too bad Kennedy didn't go hunting with Cheney

Oh fer chrissakes. If I hear one more liberal whinycrat complain about how the Republicans tried to cover up the hunting accident I'll go postal. I suppose that reporting the shooting to the authorities, getting the man medical attention, and reporting it to the owner of the property was all covering it up. And since Dick is such a alcoholic, let's run BAC tests on him (btw, the man barely drinks, even at parties, and has been that way for about 30 years now).
The liberal wannabeelite media is just pissed because it wasn't something they could 'scoop', and now they're whining.
Too bad Dick didn't take Hilldebeast, Albore, Teddy(hic), or Whored Dean hunting with him. I bet he'd be a much better shot when he's trying. I certainly would be.

Separated at birth?

As hot as she is, she's equally dumb. And if you know anything about the ostrich, you know that their brain is about the size of a peanut......I think these two have more in common than you think:

I'm gettin old.....

Went snowboarding this past weekend, took Friday off to do it. I'm beat. Draggin like a beagle's pecker in six inches of snow.
My kids actually are getting pretty good at skiing/snowboarding. That's probably a bad thing. Cuz then, they'll want me to take them out a lot and do crazy crap with them, and I'm in no shape to do that.
I'm so tired I'm not even going to mention about how much of a bitch Jimmy Carter is. Or how much of a complete and utter hag (sir edmund)Hillary is.

Jimmy Carter, arguably one of the worst presidents in the past century, whose contributions to our country included 'Billy Beer', the biggest, dumbest smile in the history of the presidency, Americans held hostage by a bunch of punk-ass islamic militants who now run the country, a botched military mission to rescue said hostages, gas lines after a supposed oil shortage, and disco, and he has the balls to criticize President Bush on his handling of ANYTHING?
Jimmuh, f___ you. If you had any semblance of manhood you'd skulk off into one of those damn habitat for humanity homes that you keep building for photo-ops, just to keep your sorry face in front of the camera so people won't think you're dead. But I suppose between Amy and Roslyn, you've lost anything that your 'Y' chromosome would have generated.
If it wasn't for your sorry-assed 'leadership' the idiots who are pursuing nukes in Iran would be dead for going on 30 years now. But your stupidity and ineptness helped to empower them and allow them to gain a following as the guys who made America look bad.
If ANYONE dies as a result of any military operations in Iran to remove their nuclear capabilities, it's on the Peanut Farmer's head. I think he knows it too, which is why he's distancing himself as best he can from this.

Wow....guess I wasn't so tired after all....

Riot over this?

Riots over this picture. RIOTS for chrissakes. People burning buildings, burning flags, hurting other human beings, advocating further violence against the west, and general stupidity.
Religion of peace? More like the religion of many peaceful people, but mostly fronted by ignorant lemmings allowing themselves to get worked into a frenzy for the advancement of power for a select few imams.
-Not sure a religion of peace would not only ignore the murder of 6 million fellow human beings during the Holocaust, but refer to it as a lie and use that to whip up the anger of the lemmings.
-Not sure a religion of peace would kidnap innocents and behead them for no apparent reason, other than their nationality and religion.

Liberals love to spout off about how Islam is the religion of peace and that the majority of Muslims don't support the radical Islamists that we see on TV. But we don't see anyone stepping up and slapping down the violence. We don't see anyone saying "Hey, cut the shit, you're making us look bad, assmunch". Nope, all we see are the leadership of the various sects continuing to push for more violence.

Religion of peace? You decide.

Brokeback Mountain

Nope, I didn't go see it. But the wife did. Go figure. I got the standard lecture prior to the movie about how I'm 'homophobic' blah blah. My standard response applied "Homophobic implies that there's something wrong with me and let's be frank, no one wants to watch two guys getting it on".
Well, she wanted to see it so she went by herself. This isn't a big deal, as she has the occasional afternoon off and frequently sees movies by herself, especially ones that she knows I have absolutely NO desire to see. But of course, she had to give me the full report of course after seeing it.
"Did you know they actually showed them doing it?". Um....no, but that's a picture I really didn't want in my mind, thanks. After her synopsis, it sounds like it's a love story and a story about how the choices in your life affect how your life works out. Well, DUH. But more to the point, there are a select few movies that I'll actually fork out eight bucks to see, and a love story ain't one of them. Neither is a cowboy movie, unless it's starring Clint Eastwood. So, this bad boy had two strikes against it from the get go. The only saving grace is that it has nude scenes with Anne Hathaway (Princess Diaries, Ella Enchanted...hawt), so that's a plus, but heck, I can download that scene from the Internet darn near anywhere, so that doesn't do it for me.
What I found interesting is that while my wife said that she liked the movie, she didn't say it was a great movie. It seems that Hollywood is fawning all over the movie because if they didn't, they may be afraid that they would come off as anti-gay. Which seems to be counterintuitive since a helluva lot of them ARE gay, but I'm just not sure how to read it. On one hand, you've got all these people saying "oh god what a great movie", and on the other you have all the regular every day people who've seen it who say "it was ok, not bad, but not incredible". So, is the press/media gushing over it because they don't want to seem insensitive/gay-bashing? I'll let you make your own opinion on that, but it just seems like much like a lot of other things in the US today, people are going overboard because they have a social agenda. If a qb is black and halfway good, he's the best thing since sliced bread. If a movie is halfway good and about gay people, it's Oscar-worthy.

Marginalization in the effort of acceptance is something that lowers the bar for everyone and shouldn't be tolerated, no matter what the social standards are.

Economic good news

Unemployment is around 4% (unless you live in Michigan).
2 million jobs created in 2005
2 million jobs created in 2004
$46 billion more in tax revenue from captal gains over the last two years than anticipated by the Congressional Budget Office.

But yet, the Dems continue to complain/whine/piss/moan etc. They thrive on negativity. They hate success when Republicans are in power. When the 2000th American died in Iraq, the excitement amongst the Democrats was palpable.

Why don't they just finally come out and say it, "We hate America, and don't want to see us succeed. We'd rather just join the EU and allow the country sink into the marginality that Europe has become. At least not when we're not in power and can't take credit for it anyway".

Bunch of jackasses. Google, DemoncRats, Whoared Dean, Teddy (hic) Kennedy, Leaky Leahy, and the rest of the squealing masses of libs can bite me.

The LARK program

A lady wrote a lot of letters to the White House complaining about the treatment of a captive insurgent (terrorist) being held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. She received back the following reply:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20016

Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thank you for your recent letter roundly criticizing our treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda detainees currently being held at Guantanamo bay, Cuba.
Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinion was heard loud and clear here in Washington. You'll be pleased to learn that, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new division of the Terrorist Retraining Program, to be called the "Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers" program, or LARK for short.
In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided to place one terrorist under your personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence next Monday. Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers. We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly recommended in your letter.
Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his "attitudinal problem" will help him overcome these character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills at your next yoga group. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.
Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters (except sexually), since he views females as a subhuman form of property. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him and he has been known to show violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the new dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka -- over time.
Just remember that it is all part of "respecting his culture and his religious beliefs" -- wasn't that how you put it? Thanks again for your letter. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job. You take good care of Ahmed - and remember...We'll be watching.

Good luck!

Cordially, your friend,
Don Rumsfeld.

Super(?) Bowl

So as many of you know, I host a SuperBowl party (no, not a big game party, a Super Bowl Party, so sue me NFL). Usually, when my beloved Broncos aren't in it (which is damn near most of the time), I just root for a good game and funny commercials.
This year, I got neither.
I was cheering for the Steelers, only because they beat the Broncos and I could make the argument in my head that "ok, well, they knocked the Broncos out of the playoffs and so they should win, because then I could argue that the Broncos are the 2nd best team in the NFL" and no one could prove me wrong (and I couldn't prove myself right either, but that's a moot point).
But the pass interference call in the endzone was the beginning of a horrible game of refereeing. You show me one ref that calls that play in the regular season and I'll crap in your hat. But this yahoo decides that because it's the Super Bowl that he's going to throw the flag (after much lobbying from the DB might I add). What a joke.
Then Roethlisberger DOESN'T cross the white, the linesman runs down the line like he's going to spot the ball at the 1" line, but sees the ball over the line (after Ben shifts the ball after he's down) and signals TD.
Granted Pittsburgh had their share of crappy calls too, a couple holds that weren't, etc, but it definitely seemed WWE'esque, in that the commisioner's office saw a good story in Bettis winning the game in his home stadium/home town, and thought that'd get a lot more press than some team from the Northwest winning their first SuperBowl.
Yeah, I know, it'd be really hard to truly 'fix' a game, and I'm sure Mr. Tagliabue has more interest in keeping the game clean than one SuperBowl story, but it definitely took some of the luster off the game.
And the commercials...blech. WTF was BurgerKing thinking? The pile of women dressed up as condiments and varius dressings on a burger? I kept waiting for the punchline....to no avail.
Yeah, the Magic Fridge was good, as well as the McGyver and Fedex caveman getting stomped by a brontosaurus (anything's funny stomped by a brontosaurus), but overall, even the commercials were disappointing this year. I shoulda just gotten piss-drunk and spent the evening in the toilet. At least then I would have had a reason to feel like crap today, instead of just lack of sleep from watching a crappy game. But I did enjoy myself with the guests at my party and hope they did as well.

Senator Leaky

Oops...a typo. Senator Patrick Leahy of VT wants to hold hearings about the supposed spying of the government on their own citizens. Of course, this would be the same Senator Leahy that was kicked off the Senate Intelligence committee for leaking information to the media and other sources so perhaps he has a vested interest in making sure that the government can't spy on people.

Or he's just being a hypocritical prick who's dancing for the cameras like a typical monkey-boy DemoncRat.
Leahy lecturing Alberto Gonzalez about the legality of intelligence gathering and the security of that data is like Kennedy lecturing Sam Alito about ethics. Just kinda rings hollow with me and I expect with the majority of Americans as well.

Just in case you people have forgotten the animals that we're fighting in Iraq and the animals we've replaced, I figured I'd remind you.
On March 1988, in the town of Halabja, 5,000 Kurds died and 10,000 were injured when Iraqi jets dropped mustard and other nerve gas on the Kurdish city in northeastern Iraq. Over a decade after the massacre, the people of Halabja still suffer from very high rates of serious diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders, birth defects and miscarriages. Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons attack on Halabja was not an isolated incident. It was part of a systematic campaign ordered by Saddam Hussein and led by his cousin, Ali Hassan al-Majid." What weapons of mass destruction? Shut your pie-holes libs. Just because we didn't find huge amounts of (edited to reflect the fact that we have, indeed found some, thanks Fish) them, doesn't mean they weren't there. Syria has them, Jordan has them, SOMEONE has them. SOMEONE knows where they are.
Bottom line, this is the type of mentality we're dealing with if we just walk away.

And no amount of whining by Cindy Sheehan and her friends will change that. Screw you libs.

Difference between Men and Women

Friendship Between Women:
A woman didn't come home one night. The next day she told her husband that she had slept over at a girlfriend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

Friendship Between Men:
A man didn't come home one night. The next day he told his wife that he had slept over at a buddy's house. The woman called her husband's 10 best friends. Eight of them confirmed that he had slept over, and two claimed that he was still there.

Best IT company ever

Double-M and I were talking and discussing our shared former employer. To think of the talent that they chased off over the last year, it would make up one HELL of an IT company.

D-man: Probably technically one of the strongest guys I've ever worked with. Knew much about external pens and if he didn't know something, wouldn't give up until he mastered it.
J-man: Cisco/Windows guru with much networking experience. Also pretty darn good with difficult clients especially ones he can hug.
Double-M: Strong in various areas of technology, plus good with tough clients.
Double-J: Strong with Linux, coding, hacking, and much else.
BW's - Strong with regulatory stuff, good if we focused on a regulated industry for a target market, but also strong with audit-type stuff, and heck, we may run into a Mac or two.
BadAndy- Strong Coder, but also strong Unix and hacker
TerribleTeddy- Every company has to have a sales guy, and Ted is a good one.
Cortez- Strong with Windows and other stuff, plus a quick learner.
Mr. Imsorry- Strong in linux, general security, coding, and heck, let's face it, it's good to have at least one person who is strong in international relations.
PolishRocket- Good with Novell, good with clients, and heck, a definite improvement of the scenery over these guys I listed earlier!
JJ(2)- Novell/Windows Guru...also the master of QA. Speaks his mind even if it gets him fired

I know I'm forgetting some folks, and to you, I apologize. If you want to join the 'company' let me know and I'll get you an 'application'.
