Play the Barack BS Bingo game


Hate boring political speeches?  Spice them up by playing BS Bingo!  Missed Obama’s Sep. 8th jobs speech? Be ready next time!

DISCLAIMER:  I do not claim authorship or origination of this idea; it’s been floating around by email for some time and there are even interactive versions available online (links below).

Based on the Sept. 8th jobs speech, you may want to add a new list of phrases to your play sheets.  Here is my suggested list of phrases to add for variety:   supported by both Democrats and Republicans;  pass this jobs bill;  more jobs;  tax cuts;  tax relief;  now I realize;  we can’t afford;  every American knows;  will not add to the deficit;  this isn’t class warfare;  this is simple math; I reject the idea.

Below is a sample card to print and have copies on hand when an Obama speech in announced for television.  Below the play sheet below are the rules for BS Bingo.  You may prefer to play the interactive online versions such as BingObama.

Rules for Bullsh*t  Bingo:

  1. Before Barrack Obama’s next  televised speech, print your “Bullsh*t  Bingo” play sheets
  2. Check off the  appropriate block when you hear one of those  words/phrases.
  3. When you get five blocks  horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand  up and shout “BULLSH*T!”

Below is an Obama speech video for your practice. Enjoy!

ANOTHER RAVE REVIEW FOR SAFARI BROWSER.(Technology)(Column) go to website best web browser

The Post-Standard (Syracuse, NY) January 29, 2003 Byline: AL FASOLDT STAFF WRITER This week I’d planned to give you my top tips and tricks for OS X Macs, but I’m delaying the column for a week so I can tell you about a big surprise for Mac users, the new Apple Web browser Safari.

The new browser has been getting rave reviews ever since it was introduced in a dramatic announcement at the annual West Coast MacWorld exposition early this month. In two weeks alone, more than 1 million Mac users downloaded Safari. It’s still a beta version, meaning it’s being tested for eventual full release soon.

Safari is free for all users of OS X 10.2 (the Jaguar version). It won’t run on any older versions of OS X, the discontinued Mac OS or on a Windows PC.

I downloaded Safari and installed it as soon as I heard about it. I’ve updated it a couple of times since then. Normally, I’m glad to return to my regular software after trying out beta versions, but my experience with Safari wasn’t normal.

It’s the best Web browser I’ve ever used, for any computer. And it’s even faster than the reigning speed king, the Windows version of Mozilla. Best of all, it has features other browsers can’t match.

I was so impressed with Safari that I made it my default browser, replacing the excellent OmniWeb. OmniWeb just isn’t as quick or as good at displaying complex pages as Safari is. go to website best web browser

Safari makes the OS X version of Internet Explorer seem porky, and I’ve found that I never have to run IE any more. Tests I ran comparing Safari with IE and OmniWeb show that Safari is better at handing sites that assume that IE is the only Web browser.

Safari has a links bar, just like probably every Web browser, and it works splendidly. I tend to use the links bar for quick Web shortcuts on any browser.

(If this is mystifying you, let me explain. The links bar is a toolbar at the top of the browser that you can drag shortcuts to. Most people who know about the links bar on their browser probably don’t realize that these shortcuts can be ANY shortcuts if the browser is well designed. This means you can have a browser toolbar link that runs your word processor or any other program, or one that opens a folder.) Safari is based on a browser created by the KDE project, which makes a graphical interface for Linux called KDE. The KDE work is done using the Open Source method, which guarantees that improvements are shared freely and bugs are stomped out quickly. Apple is sharing its improvements to the KDE browser “engine” with the KDE browser project.

Safari is an easy program to install. Go to and click the Software link. You’ll see the Safari link right away.

Remember: You need the Jaguar version of OS X. Jaguar is worth the upgrade cost, so you might want to pay for a Jaguar upgrade first, then try out Safari.

Coming Sunday in Stars Al Fasoldt tells you how to make important changes to the hidden setup menu on your Windows PC.
