Wall•E Thoughts

I was going to type up a review of wall-e, but my dad beat me to it and summed it up perfectly.

Reading Comprehension Is Good.

While i know this case was about how guns are handled in DC, which is under a different oversight than the rest of the country, this case could have had SERIOUS impact against the rest of the country if it went one vote the other way.

While sure, im against criminals having guns as much as the next guy, i hate the idea of legislation of things like this because a small minority of the country cant handle themselves. Also, if guns were to be outlawed, criminals would find other way to kill or find other ways to get guns. Making things illegal is not the answer. Just look at prohibition.

Assault weapons is the same way. Do i see a reason for someone to have an AK47 of M16 in their house to defend themselves? Not really, however, if it is something the country feels strongly about, the constitution should be amended, not a new law made. However, i dont think that the government has the right to judge what kind of weapons someone keeps in their home.

Its a sticky situation, but just like most issues, it becomes INCREDIBLY polarized. The left screams bloody murder and makes anyone who wants to own a weapon to look like Rambo, and the right responds by coming across as haughty and hypocritical by saying things like "the government should keep their laws off my guns", which makes their arguments against abortion somewhat ironic.

Im finding myself to become more and more moderate lately, not because i dont agree with the ideals of the conservative movement anymore, but just because for the most part, conservatives do such a HORRIBLE job of getting their message out. Almost as bad as most of the liberal think tanks.

Politics is driving me nuts. Talked to my dad about it last night, not sure what to do in november. Ill have to pay a bit closer attention to Mccain...cause i know the past few times ive read up on him, i havent liked alot of what ive heard/read. What i do know is that Obama scares me. Not cause hes black, not cause hes a true leftist, but because hes been able to charm his way into so many people, but with some really scary policy ideas.

He hasnt really gotten most people to know what his "change we can believe in" motto actually means...just that he isnt Bush. For some, thats enough. Then again, im pretty sure thats the same situation that got us Jimmy Carter. That worked out superbly.

Eh, ill stop my rant...I just never thought that much change in the government could really impact whats going on just because of the incredible bureaucracy...but man, im not looking forward to november, and the following january.

Updating Contacts

So ive been updating my contacts in outlook on my work computer to keep them updated on my iphone. Now, heres the situation i have.

Outlook @ work - exchange, has work contacts/calendar synced to phone through itunes(when i think to do it).
Mac at home - apple address book(where most of my personal contacts are added)
iPhone - merged data nightmare of doom

So today, i was merging the 2, and all the ones i input in outlook display like ass garbage on the iPhone. Took me 5 times going through and changing the format to figure out why. The issue was that it would display the name in outlook like this

Full Name: First Last
File As: Last, First

However, in my contacts on my iPhone, it was showing up as

Last First - but was sorting all names by FIRST name, thinking it was the last name.

Confused yet?

So, in order to fix it, you actually have to go into the name editor, not the name field where you import it...and change it manually. For whatever reason, outlook imported all the names i was adding manually...backwards.


Hate outlook.
