Something to think about...

Have YOU forgotten?
Shortly after the horrific attacks on 9-11, the media felt as though they needed to stop showing the images of 9-11, because it is to “disturbing”. They are right, it is disturbing; however they should show it everyday, for nothing else but to remind this country why we are at war. A war against terrorists. The liberal left wants to make you think it is because of oil. They must not remember the four airliners, but I do.

The second American has been be-headed. This is another image that the American people need to see everyday. Then when the left start whining about the “atrocities” in “grab-an-Arab” prison, the argument should be… We humiliated them, we scared them, they cut our guys heads off. How wrong were we?

There is a liberal protest group called ANSWER. (Act Now Stop War & End Racism). These are fundamentalists, which are every bit as rabid as the terrorists that we are fighting. They are so “locked on” to their doctrine that they refuse to acknowledge what is truly happening. These animals are cutting American’s heads off; did ANSWER even mention it on their website? Nope, not a word.

The media needs to quit thinking for me. Televise what is “disturbing”, so that these losers will understand what the whole thing is about. They may say that Nick Berg was killed because he was in Iraq. What about Paul Johnson? These animals cut off his head and put it on his back. Then they took the knife and rested it against the severed head. Is this graphic? Does it make you angry?

Why was Paul Johnson killed? He was simply an American, just like you and me, getting up everyday and going to work. He was targeted because he was an American. He was not in Iraq, but in Saudi Arabia. That means these terrorists feel as though they can attack Americans anywhere. Lots of folks involved in answer are very affluent; will they be traveling outside the country anytime soon? I bet not.

These animals kill Americans BECAUSE they are American. But that is not a reason to wage war…right?

Enterprise OS Thoughts

It has been a while since the WWDC keynote, and I have been mulling over this post. Let’s start with Yosemite. While Yosemite looks amazing, Apple is trying to get into the Enterprise space, and while the new OS is great-looking, enterprises want stability. Wouldn’t it make more sense to go back to the old model of creating a great OS, then when you come up with a new feature, bolt that onto the existing OS, That model worked for some time in both Windows and OS X. Then any new features were added through point upgrades or Service Packs in the Windows world.

In my opinion, enterprises would be well served using this method. It would give larger businesses time to roll out the OS, and would only have to roll out out updates that could be delivered via SUS or Remote Desktop. This is where both camps are ignoring enterprises and just racing to release another OS. in the last 4 years Apple has released Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, and now Yosemite. At the same time Microsoft released V…

Bang into the walls…

I have been doing some reflecting on Steve Jobs quotes I came across. Everyone has seen the quotes “Here’s to the crazy ones…” or “I want to put a dent in the universe”. While both are great quotes, I think my favorite is: “When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life and try not to bash into the walls too much…that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact—everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you…shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just going to live in it versus make your mark upon it. Once you learn that, you will never be the same again.”

This is basically what life is about. If you are afraid to “bang into the walls” you are not embracing life. What would have happened if “the crazy ones” would have not challenged the status quo? We would not have seen the genius of Rembrandt, Einstein or Jim Henso…

Skate to the puck

This week’s quote comes from Wayne Gretzky.

I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been - Wayne Gretzky.

This is terribly profound and can be applied to everyone. Everyone that is not focused on the present, is concerned with the past. How many times have you heard “That’s not how we have always done it”. If you are complacent in your life, how can you expect to get ahead? This isn’t to be confused with “Don’t dress for the job you have, but the job you want.” That implies that somehow the way you dress will magically make you better at your job. Wearing suits and so forth is a very east coast idea. If I had a company, I would much rather have a genius working for me wearing jeans and a t-shirt instead of a moron in a nice suit. (Sorry, had to get that off my chest, now back to the quote). For you to evolve as a person, this can be thought of as setting goals. For example I set a goal for myself that once a week I would write something for my blog. Goal set (and so…
