Infotel Phone Book Scam

from xlrq.com

"The time to act is now. Let us all, as bloggers, unite to ensure that Infotel does not profit from its bully tactics. Don't make anything up, stretch the truth, or do anything else that could be construed as stooping to their level. Just say what needs to be said to ensure that everyone who reads your blog knows what unmitigated bastards these guys are. That way, Infotel will come to regret their sleazy tactics. This will send the message to other shady businesses loud and clear: fuck with the blogosphere, and the blogosphere will turn right back around and fuck with you. "

The New Face of Conservative America - Bobby Jindal

I bet if this candidate was a member of a minority community "acceptable" to liberals, you'd be seeing alot more of him on the network news shows. (by the way, Gov. Arnold, give this guy a visit and do a fundraiser for him...):

"Jindal’s governmental ethics manifesto is part of his conservative platform, “Bold New Vision for Louisiana,” and centers around three main themes – making state and local government more open and accountable to the public, aggressively addressing potential conflicts of interest, and responsibly managing spending of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. Highlights of his plan include requiring public officials to disclose their sources of income, barring regulated industries from contributing to officials who regulate them, and preserving an independent legislative auditor’s office.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune endorsed Jindal for governor citing the need for honesty in government. The editorial said, “Given the history of corruption in this state, Louisiana needs a governor who takes care to abide by ethics rules, rather than looking for shortcuts around them. His election would be an unmistakable, powerful message to the world, and also to ourselves: That we have the power to break free of our past. That nothing can stop us from fulfilling our potential.”
...
Jindal, born to Asian-Indian immigrants in Baton Rouge, is a Brown University graduate and Oxford University graduate (where he was named a Rhodes Scholar). He has developed an impressive resume of public service: He became Louisiana’s health secretary at 24 where he turned around the Medicaid program from $400 million deficit to $220 surplus by cracking down on fraud and abuse; he became director of a national commission on Medicare at 26; he became president of the University of Louisiana system at 27 where he increased retention, donations, and endowments; he became health-policy adviser to the Bush administration at 29. He has also been a consultant for McKinsey & Company, advising CEOs/Senior Management of fortune 50 companies. He and his wife of five years, Supriya Jolly, are parents of a one-year-old daughter Selia Elizabeth. Jindal, born Piyush, converted to Christianity at 18, and took the name Bobby. He is a Member of St. Jude Catholic Church in Baton Rouge."



Howard Dean Talks Gays and God

From RealClearPolitics:

"As you've probably seen by now, Howard Dean touched down in Tallahassee on Tuesday to tell Southern Democrats they need to "stop having our elections in the South based on race, guns, God and gays and start having them on jobs and health insurance and foreign policy.''

Also included in Dean's speech were diatribes against Florida Governor Jeb Bush for signing a bill preserving Terri Schiavo's right to live and for reaffirming the state's ban on gay adoption. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't those issues concerning God and gays?"
