Is This What Obama Meant By CHANGE?

I have been using Windows Internet Explorer as my browser since the beginning of my activity on the net. It has never been a problem until the election. We have gotten along just fine together. Now I am having a difficult, philosophical argument with it.

Have you ever tried to argue with a cyber program? It’s like talking to a wall. It will not do what I want to do. Here’s the problem:

I learned, the day of the inauguration, that Obama’s team had made substantive changes to the official White House Web Site. That’s where, before the scent of President Bush’s cologne even left the platform, the Obama team had already posted their plans to undo policies and implement their lefty agenda on America.

So I wanted to keep this site at my disposal (ooh, I like that word) so that I could reference it often; I expect I will be writing to Barry quite frequently. But the only place my browser will keep it is in a place called “favorites.” I don’t like that! I would rather file it someplace more appropriate like “liberal lunacy,” or “stupid stuff,” or “foolish falderol.” But NO, my browser wants me to put it “favorites.”

A friend told me that I should switch to Firefox where I can save it as a “bookmark.” “Bookmark” sounds a little more acceptable than “favorites.” I’m going to take a look at that and maybe I’ll switch over. Hmmm! I wonder if that’s what Obama meant when he kept talking about “change.”

Ah, you are already set up to use Google Reader. You can make your own heading entitled Asinine Anathemas.

Thanks, Daisy.

I didn't know about Google Reader. I'll check it out. I like the "assinine anathemas" tag.
