Ground Zero: First Podcast Attempt

Obama: No Regrets...

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Despite criticism from Republicans and others, President Barack Obama said Wednesday he has "no regrets" over the comments he made about the right of Muslims to build an Islamic center near the former site of the World Trade Center in New York.

Obama's latest comment was in response to a question shouted by a reporter as he was leaving a townhall-style meeting on the economy in Ohio.

The president inserted himself into the debate over the proposed Islamic center, which includes a mosque, when he said last week Muslims "have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country" and that included building the Islamic center in lower Manhattan. A day later, Obama told reporters that he wasn't endorsing the specifics of the plan.

His position has drawn criticism from those who say that the $100 million Islamic center should not be built two blocks away from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Republicans have seized on the issue, with many trying to force Democrats to either stand with the president or buck him.

This is of course becoming old news, but the fight to prevent the terror leaders from raising a victory platform near to their most magnificent triumph, is ongoing.

In the meanwhile, we've been fiddling with attempting a podcast, and as usual the software is balky, clumsy, inefficient, and impossible to tell if it is working properly or at all.

Ground Zero

Clicking the above or headline take you directly to our new podcasting feature. Then click on  "audiomp3" feature to listen. And thanks for bearing with me as I work through this rather non-intuitive procedure.

PS: The audio quality wasn't as good as I wanted, but this was simply a test run to see if my idea of doing a mini-cast on a regular basis could be accomplished without much blood loss.

Removed the ECHO template from atop the righthand column and this apparently left the Booger comment section freedom to do its thang.

Back to the drawing board. I paid for the damned ECHO deal, and it's better than Booger. Oh well.

A burning Zero piloted by Buddha. LOL!

I think you laid it out pretty well in the Obama's Mojo piece. The left-wing's left-wing is secularist to the point that they don't even understand any faith besides their own. Traditional religion is a political tactic, and "Jesus" is something they say to get a few more votes, (and also the guy they want to vote just as soon as he gets out of a California emergency room.) Tactics are chosen depending on the situation, so in their eyes one religious symbol is as useful as the next. None have meaning to them, so they are perplexed by all those little people that are offended.

I suppose if we wanted their rapt attention, we'd have to put their religious symbols in an offending context--say, gifting a burning tire dump as abstract art, for placement in front of the University of East Anglia. Perhaps urinals sculpted to the likeness of Castro and Guevara, or a DC vs. Heller honorary victory full-auto shooting range in downtown DC.

Also: there's probably nothing you can do about this, but I had to download the file to listen to it because the embedded player will "buffering" until the central government asks for pay cuts and reduced department staffing.

Yes...the "buffering" was nuts too but there's a way to get around it...there are two links to click once you arrive at the page. The "Listen now" link was the one forever buffering for me, but the one under it...the one that says "Audio MP3", and NOT any of the other useless links alongside it...

AudioMP3 pulls up a player that works first time every time with little to no buffering.

This whole thing has been giving me fits. Appropriately so.
