Well, I finally got around to upgrading the software running this site here at the blog of The Average Man.Â The software, WordPress, has really been terrific and has changed the way I do business here.Â Blogging with WordPress is simply the hottest thing out there and now has the lion share of all downloads.
In the process of upgrading the foundation of the web site here, I found several new features that will be evident in the coming posts.Â I installed the plug-in Smart Youtube that will allow the easy addition of Youtube videos to the posts.Â That is really SWEET!Â Lets check it out, OK?Â Also, the upgrade should add a measure of additional security to the web site and cut down on the spam.
So how did that go, did it work and were you as impressed as I was with the statements of Collin Powell.Â I am floored by the wisdom of the statements that this REPUBLICAN PARTY member made. The Republican Party, of which it is a ashame to admit I am a member, is now in total disarray.Â I switched political parties back when we had the recall election of then Governor Gray Davis here in 2003.Â California was a total mess and it was expedient to be a Republican Party member so that I could vote for Arnold Schwarzenegger a Republican.
The two major factions of the GOP, the religious right and the fiscal conservative business types, have hit a dividing wall.Â The policy makers within the upper ranks of the Republican Party are at odds with one another and the road forward for the conservative movement is not clear.Â I just subscribed to the periodical, The Atlantic, which describes these in-fighting’s in detail.Â Great Rag with lots of good WORDS, highly recommended.
So if you have not seen these gentlemen, Mr’s Obama and McKane, discussing their campaigns and policies I strongly advise you do so before election day. Make up your own mind. I have based on what I see.
These political debates are vitally important and this third and final debate between these two candidates illustrate the statesmanship of Mr. Obama and the wonderful president he will be!
The campaign headquarters for Barack Obama needs your support and your VOTE.
So I will leave you with this latest Pod-Cast from The Atlantic which is wonderfully hilarious:
