HOWTO: Sync Palm Pre with Mozilla Lightning / Thunderbird

07/05/2009 - 8:09pm

Having been a Palm fan for over a decade, I've had several Treos up to the 700p. I was getting disappointed with the lack of innovation on the part of Palm as every other smartphone provider began passing them by. I've also been a Linux and open-source fan for even longer. So when I heard about the Palm Pre, I waited in anticipation until it was released on June 6th and picked up my new phone as soon as the local Sprint store had them available. Since then, I've not been disappointed. It'...

Libertarianism and the U.S. Constitution

03/21/2008 - 12:13am

I was engaged in a debate last night that I found intriguing. It lasted at least three hours, but it was difficult to tell as time tends to fly in these situations. One of the topics was the U.S. Constitution. The gentleman I was speaking with had asked me what the Constitution was (not that he didn't know, but was working his way up to a point). I responded by saying that it was a contract by the states and the federal government, basically the mandate that created the federal government....

"There are so many problems at the federal level of government," commented Coons, "that it can be hard to set specific goal...

Dave Ramsey, Bad at Macro-Economics

01/29/2008 - 12:49am

I'm a huge Dave Ramsey fan. I agree with most of what he teaches such as becoming and staying debt-free, the fact that personal finances are more about behavior than they are about math, and investing into good growth-stock mutual funds. However, from listening to his radio show for so long, I can't help but feel that he doesn't have a good grasp of macro-economics. Macro-economics is the study of economics on a large scale, like for a state or an entire country, as opposed to much smaller ...

H.R. 847

12/12/2007 - 9:14am

The First Amendment of the US Constitution has been securely placed in Guantanamo Bay and doesn't seem to apply anymore. This resolution was introduced on 12/6/2007 and was passed on 12/11/2007 by a vote of 372-9. I'm surprised and disappointed that Jeff Flake of Arizona voted for this. The First Amendment states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of...

Travel Site

11/20/2007 - 9:22am

My wife and I started a new travel site, named simply after us, Nick & Crys Travel. This site ties into all of the same databases as the big guys, like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc., so you'll find all of the same deals and the same pricing. Many people book their travel online, but no one has brand loyalty to any particular site. They search through several sites looking for the best price. We simply ask that you include our site when doing your searching, and if our site has the bes...

Presidents Aren't Leaders

10/11/2007 - 12:19am

While watching the various presidential candidates promote their positions, it seems like they want to "lead the country." They (most of them) have plans on how they're going to take care of our health, our money, and our energy needs. Is it even possible for a single person to be an expert in all of these things? No, of course not. Hillary Clinton, for example, doesn't know anything about medicine or energy. These subjects require experts like doctors and professors; people who dedicate th...

Abolish The Federal Reserve

09/28/2007 - 5:35pm

In a post a couple of months ago, I explained the relationship between the Income Tax and the Federal Reserve, and provided a brief explanation of how the Federal Reserve works. First, the name "Federal Reserve" is completely misleading. It is neither federal, nor is it a reserve. People think of the Federal Reserve as a government agency charged with stabilizing the economy, and they hold all of our gold in Fort Knox. Unfortunately, neither of these is true, and the vast majority of people ...

It's Not The Government's Responsibility

09/09/2007 - 12:40pm

It's not ground-breaking news to state that our government has grown substantially over the past 100 years. And it's not grown because of population increases; it's grown disproportionately. Especially in the past 40 years, a small number of people (which has now become a larger group of people) has begun demanding that the government deal with more and more problems. What people don't understand is that it's not the government's responsibility to deal with these issues. If Iraq breaks out...
