Whitewashing the Windows

ver since Apple CEO Steve Jobs died there's been a growing presence on the 'net championing the sainthood of .... Bill Gates.

Standing on the sidelines throughout the 90s with my trusty li'l Mac at my side it was clear to me, clear as an unsullied lake in fact, that Microsoft was hell-bent on extracting every cent it could out its user-base through the clever use of an operating system purposely designed to be a buggy hunk of crap... which it still is. I watched time-after-time as one promising company and one promising piece of software was bulldozed out of existence by MS's desire to get it's massive cut of the action. 100% of the cut, that is.

You know how guilty Gates is now about this behavior? Not at all. Not a flaming biscuit, but it's clear that his wife Melinda has trouble sleeping at night. She's obviously p-whipped Bill into whitewashing his dismal, money-grubbing image to the tune of $10 billion big ones, spreading it around on any number of progressive issues, though a lot of it entailed copies of Windows to grade schools. Gee, how generous. Generally the end result is admirable but from what I've read the Foundation can be a real pain in the ass about who gets what and how much. And don't get me started on their sterilization programs. Yes, sterilization.

So the very suckers who were taken to the cleaners by Microsoft for the past twenty years are now ecstatically singing Bill's praises just because he's spreading an insignificant amount, to him, of his booty back on the peasantry. Yes, the wolves preyed on the flock for years and now they're back with vaccinations. Yay.

The thing that galls me is that these comment trolls complain that Steve Jobs, regardless of the wonderful things he achieved in the teeth of an entire industry nipping at his heels, wasn't as philanthropic as Saint Bill. They seem to forget that Gates is worth $50 billion while Jobs was sitting on a much smaller, though relatively comfortable, nest egg of $7 billion in Apple stock. Given another ten years of good health there's no telling what worthy enterprises Jobs would have turned his attention to, but I'll bet we'll be hearing more from his family in this regard before the decade is out.


For those who can't parse this "lube and fecal matter" nonsense, just Google "Santorum".

Go on. Try it!



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #104 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(104) 11-4-2011: Yay! It's a GOP jobs bill! No, wait... sorry, they're just deregulating securities and calling it a jobs bill. My mistake.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.
