|Help Support Tarryl Clark!
Okay so first my apologies this was supposed to be out yesterday but finding an hour to actually write and publish at a time when I think the most people could possibly see this is proving ...
|Vote 2010: Give Pete Sessions his walking papers
So I missed yesterday and what I've learned from that is that I need to find time to get ahead for days like yesterday (when I was gone for about 15 hours). That said I am still going to push ...
|I don't freaken care about Glenn Beck
I really don't. The man's antics I find amusing and sometimes I sincerely wonder if the man needs a psychologist but other then that I don't care. I also don't care about his rally. I don't care ...
|I need to get some things off my chest
What follows is mostly a rant on several topics *do not* assume the individual points are connected by anything more then my feeling that they need to be addressed. If I want to connected them I ...
|Reflections on Patience
So I am breaking a long silience I've held on writing new diaries and I am doing it largely because there is finally something I think that needs to be said. And what pray tell is that? That the ...
|My Aunt Died Today
My aunt died today, well technically I guess she died 2 days ago when she stopped breathing (I still have not gotten a clear idea on how long and frankly get the idea that no one really knows) and ...
|Nate Silver takes on 'the mandate is unpopular'
Sorry if this has been already diaried, if it has let me know and I'll delete. It seems we finally have polling that might settle one of the more persistent debates around here. Course I expect the ...
|A Fool's Errand
Let me just say that this diary will probably be controversial and if that's not your cup of tea you might want to save yourself the trouble and click away. I promise not to take it personally (...
|Weekly Physics: Introduction to Classical Physics
First my apologies for the delay, I have been working 10 hour shifts and then pretty much been going straight to bed. The math version is also coming it's just been a lot of work (especially as the ...
|I just do not understand
I don't often post political diaries, mostly because I often struggle to form my work into the words I want, to find the exact combination of words that describe what is a very nuanced and finely ...
|Weekly Physics: Ballistic Motion
so first, sorry this is again a little late. Mostly it's just too many things to do and not enough time to write. I will have the math heavy version of equations of motion up tomorrow. It's just ...
|Weekly Physics: Equations of Motion
So first off I would have had this out like I intended on Friday, however my mom had a somewhat small complication from her surgery that day and had to be kept overnight. Consequently I didn't have ...
|Weekly Physics: Vectors and Scalars
So I have decided to slightly postpone what was to be my next published diary (on creating a headless computer and sharing from within a network) and write about something else. Namely what I hold a ...
|In which I fulfill a request
So in yesterday's rec list diary DADT Proponents Get Their way; Gay Iraq Vet Fired , I was pretty much at the center of an 'interesting ...
|Building your own Home Network of IPs and Ports
Now then for the curious Vol I is here ...
|Why being 'single issue' is wrong
This is an attempt to show why in general people need to be more then single issue voters. It is also an attempt to show why 'all or nothing' is at best an immature view of politics. If that is ...
|Response to Just Following Orders
Okay so I am going to do something I swore never to do. I am going to write a response to a particular diary. In fact I am writing in response ...
|Oxygen to the Stage, please
Now if you clicked on this expecting something else then a rant of sorts on the complete lack of intelligent, rational thought and the complete mangling of science; you might want to click your back ...
|Building Your Own Home Network Vol II
Okay picking up where we left off ; we have all the hard ware now what? Well now it's time add the software. Again, ...
|Building Your Own Home Network Vol 1
So being somewhere between bored and lazy (waiting for job applications to come back and yet not wanting to do the house work I should) I decided to start a new series on building your own home ...
|Missouri Tea Party
For those that don't know, I'm from Missouri and well it's an interesting state. It only narrowly want to McCain and while it's lost it's 'bellwether' status it's still an important state that is ...
|It's time to talk about changing tactics
This diary grows out of a 'discussion' (to be nice) I had in December with certain people regaurding same sex marriage and whether we need to change our tactics. So here is my premise: It's time ...
|I am a Buddhist Part 4 Buddhism and The Nature of Evil
So yeah this is way over due. I originally intended this to be written in Novemeber after the election, but well I got both busy and lazy. For those that are unfamilair with Buddhism I'll direct ...
So as I was winding down for bed, I decided to do what I normally do about once a day and check the Hidden Comments list. I don't know if this is against the rules but frankly I don't give a damn,
I have to admit, I grow up in an odd household. My mom listened to just about everything from blue grass and country to 80s punk rock. The only annonying thing I thought about her taste in music ...
|McCain to debut comback speech
This will be short because the story is short.
|Action Report: Canvasing in Rural Missouri
Let me just first say that I'm going to be somewhat vague here about where exactly I've been canvasing. Not really because I think it's some Obama secert but I like my anonymity on the internet and ...
|Reid - "We're staying till this is done"
Majority Reid just announced his intent to keep Congress in session till a deal is reached on the economic crisis. ( msn link ) Now I know alot ...

I promised myself I'd largely stay out of the FISA fight, I really did. I promised myself that I'd largely stay out of it except for commenting in a couple places. And yet I can't not any more. ...
|I am a Buddhist Part 3 Buddhism and Me
So for those that are reading this for the first time, a brief catch up. This is going to be about my own personal experiences with Buddhism, for those a little unsure about Buddhism I've already ...

Yesterday I discussed the history of the man known as Siddharth Gautauma who would later in life be known as the Buddha (see ...
|I am a Buddhist part 1 the begining
I don't really as a rule do personal diaries, but I'm so sick of the hand wringing, teeth gashing, second guessing and over all wailing about FISA, Clark and Obama. So here I am writing something ...
|On Recent activity on DK and why I feel DK has failed
To start let me just say that the recent dairies here seem to be verging on obcession with FISA and Obama's role in it. Which most times wouldn't be a bad thing, except here *Obama's vote and the ...
|Where should blame fall?
I've been reading what alot of people are saying about Sen Clinton lately and I'm struck by just how vengeful people seem to be. But I have to confess, I think people are taking it completely too ...
|I'd like to tell a story
I'd like to show a story with my fellow kossacks, it's a personal story and I know it's completely hearsay but I also think it in a nutshell shows not only why Sen Clinton is losing this contest but ...

There's been alot of talking going on about how the Democrats are hurting themselves, how McCain is laughing at the Democrats, how the GOP is just eating this up as they sit back and enjoy the chaos.
