Barack Obama’s brother pushes Chinese imports on US

Barack Obama’s brother pushes Chinese imports on US
So this is a weird news story... and an interesting one at that. My studies have had my interest drift among our current leaders family history and understood that there are some very strangely timed positions held by his siblings. There's also the Chinese connection of our current - and I should say fearless leader - and his brother Neil, who has been paid to be a 'consultant' with a Chinese company... and this was years ago.

I suppose though that if I were running for office or if I were already in office, I'd have jobs lined up for my family and friends. Whether or not these family and friends took positions in 'enemy' territory would be in question. I don't think its in good taste for our politicians to have family that is employed as either consultants or salespeople from other countries. We are in desperate need here in the United States of having products made, bought and sold here.

True, we need imports and exports, but not for most items. We COULD make most products here in this country. There's a reason there are environmental laws, which are mostly why prices are so low at Wal-Mart... because most of the products sold there are made in China. Ask anyone, they'll tell you about the proliferation and takeover of China-made goods. All that 'cheap' stuff has been produced in a country that has few environmental laws. This is why we'll no doubt see a haze over many of the locations at the Olympic Games this year (2008).

America, Made in China.
That's all I can say.

Go straight to voicemail with Slydial

Go straight to voicemail with Slydial

This service is very cool. It costs like $0.15 per call - after a long advertisement - to use SlyDial to get around talking to whoever it is you're calling. This can be helpful when you want to leave a message for a friend but don't have time to talk. Cool idea.

Here's the number.
267 - Slydial

Congressman Dennis Kucinich is my hero, even though I'm not a democrat. Along with Ron Paul, Dennis is the only guy out there going against the rest of Congress who has given into the current political powers. Kucinich is pushing forward with 35 articles of impeachment today in the House of Representatives. Well done Mr. Kucinich... well done.

Playstation 2 component incites African war

Playstation 2 component incites African war

Console war reaches past the couch and into the Congo, claims report.
Here's the article link...

So, I guess all those new video games that have people babbling about and hanging out in their houses way too long have all be made possible by poor kids in Africa. I always think about stuff like this, the 'what about' this or that. Wondering where and how my cell phone was made. I mean, that's just something that I'm guilty of having... In fact the ole' cell phone is getting the boot pretty soon. Fuck Sprint and their $100 a month fees.

4 president...

Willie Nelson for president!
Just wanted to say that.

But then there's this guy. I wonder what he's thinking?

And then there's this guy, Robert Novak - that was the dude who illegally released the name of Valerie Plame - the cia operative. All that went down I think about 3 years ago. Anyway, that guy, Novak, just hit someone with his black corvettte in Washington DC. Ok... he hit someone, but the bastard drove away! And the dude he hit rolled up onto his windshield... yes still, Novak drove away and was stopped by a bike rider who witnessed the accident.
Here's a link to the story...

ink ink...

Sketched a couple new pieces between yesterday and today. The day moves on slow here. From all the reports I've been listening to, the United States will be in a full-blown depression within 2 years. Prepare yourselves!

Here's a bunch of folks who won't be affected by the depression, check out this link to the dudes who dress up as chicks and set policy for the world. These are people we all see on tv everyday. They love their all-man camping trip that they take to the Redwoods north of San Fran every year.

Here's the article:

Can I have a taco?

One of my friends from Gainesville had this fun video linked to his myspace page. This is about a fun place where there's a big university and a lot of rock and roll...

That's about it for this afternoon.

First Post... 080721

The first post to my Massive Ink news blog.

Massive Ink is the name I created for my startup company which includes (but is not limited to) graphic design, marketing and news services. My intent is to mix ideas between art, pop culture, history and current news. Throw in a couple wild theories of my own and you've got an interesting and ever changing source of instantaneous entertainment.

Thanks for checking out my blog.
