Framing the Dialogue

Running Man

It is often interesting to look at the ease with which non-incumbent candidates can point to the incumbent’s record and critique their performance and bloviate about what they would do in similar situations. It is hard to prevent such a successful strategy and we have learned with the current resident of the White House that a blank slate can be a powerful tool when combined with a thorough lack of inspection of a candidate’s qualifications by both the main stream media and many of the voters.

Sun’s Free

One of the things that I hope to accomplish with FramingTheDialogue is to link news stories and try to show their connection and often contradictions.  It is surprising, but not unusual to find more than one article on a related topic in different sections of the newspaper.  The most recent were two articles about CFL/Incandescent light bulbs that I wrote about in Watt TF.  Recently the following three articles were available on the same day though I cannot remember whether they were available on the same media outlet. 

On The Spam Again

It is funny that the day I posted my second article about interesting/weird messages I get with spam, my spam blocker caught over 100 new spam (that’s a lot for me).  So as long as spammers post silly spam I will share with you their insights, poor English, compliments, and their attempts to lure me into their porn sites.  This collection is the best(or worst) of the best from Akismet’s 5,000 caught spam since my last 5,000 caught spam, which is 5,000 more (that is 15,000 spam in case you are keeping track).  I don’t embellish or fix their spelling:

Just A Note

I just want to thank all of you who faithfully or otherwise visit framingthedialogue.  Yesterday marked the second anniversary for this website and I look forward to the next twelve months.  If I had one request of you I would really like to hear more comments (except for that liberal lady from the Costco posting).  It is really rewarding to hear your opinions from time to time.  Lavish praise is also welcomed.

I actually have another favor.  If you like framingthedialogue tell your friends and have them take a look at it.  If you hate framingthedialogue tell twice as many friends to have them look at it. 

After the Dust Settled

Now that the dust has settled from the November 2 mid-term elections it is interesting how the left/progressives/liberals/Democrats are behaving.  The media has grabbed the horn by the bull and proclaimed that the results were not a repudiation of Obama’s policies by the American people, was not about Obamacare (it is interesting that this label has stuck), was not a victory for the Tea Party, or the American electorate is just too stupid except where favored Democrats were re-elected.  So why did the Democrats lose so badly?  Some of the themes center around voter stupidity, racism, Obama being too centrist (WTF), and my favorite…Fox News.  Scott Spiegel listed the “Top 10 excuses” at NewsRealBlog. 

Spam De Ja Vu

Spammers spew spam surreptitiously squelching sane speech sans serious sentances…..

As long as spammers post silly spam I will have a place where I can make fun of them.  This collection is the best(or worst) of the best from Akismet’s 5,000 caught spam since my last 5,000 caught spam (that is 10,000 spam in case you did not want to do the math).  I don’t embellish or fix their spelling:

December 7, 2009:  “This is my first word” [and they shared it on Framing The Dialogue.  We are truly blessed]
