Winning over Joe the Plumber


  1. Hey I don't mind scanning through the political posts for inkblogging and tech stuff, but linking to a video that claims (maybe its not I don't know) to be from Al-Jazeera, that's getting a bit over the top.

  2. I understand there's a lot of prejudice against Al-Jazeera, but it was founded by the Emir of Qatar, one of our allies in the Middle East; they broadcast via satellite in order to bypass state-sponsored censorship, you know, the kind we claim is bad; and prior to 9/11, it was lauded as the major source of uncensored information in the Middle East. It's not one of my news sources, but it's hardly the "terrorist news network" that many accuse it of being.

    As for this particular video, it was shot in the States by American correspondents for Al-Jazeera and features actual Americans speaking their minds. Doesn't seem like anyone was coerced into speaking or were falsifying their views. Watch it or not, but it does convey some of that "unspoken fear" I personally heard, so it felt worth sharing.

    BTW, I really did intend to cut down on the political stuff. It's gotten pretty heavy on me too. But it unfortunately got a lot more... interesting. Should hopefully be over soon.

  3. I started my Plumbing career at 17 in the Navy working on the monster super heated boilers and decided this was the career I wanted .. That was in 1965 and I still am learning everyday something new and still look forward to actually working with my hands.
