I'm lazy, so I'm not going to write my own arguments, but rather link to well-written articles by other people.

1.) South Korea's broadband push has changed the nation ... and how can the Americans learn? Being in Korea and seeing how the people use the Internet has definitely changed some of my perceptions on how to run my sites; it has definitely been a learning experience.

2.) The best political-themed entry I've ever seen.
I used to be a know-nothing. Now I think I know it all.

Why? I watch CNN and MSNBC and Fox News and saw that movie Fahrenheit 9/11 and listen to talk radio and have seen all the political commercials and even watched the first night of the Democratic National Convention. I have read the cartoons in Newsweek and I have paid strict attention to those really funny satirical politically-themed flash movies on the Internet.

Basically, I'm ready to vote. Not.

Just like people watch TV and think they know what goes on in the World (without actually, physically going to such places), a majority of people collect their information from the news media and think they're hearing everything and thus, they know who they're going to vote for. I, personally, have flipped back and forth as new tidbits of information come my way. This person helped the Bin Laden family leave the country. This person opposes the war. This person is an idiot. This person is a waffler. This person, that person, this person, that person.

I feel the same way. Therefore I have given up caring about the 2004 elections. If you care, I will be voting for Michael Badnarik. Do I know anything about him? Nope. But it's not as if I know much about Bush (motto: "uniter, not a divider") or Kerry (motto: "Let everyone else do the talking, while I stand around until I get elected") anyways.

In any case, Arnold King asks, "can you beat something with nothing?"
Democrats are of the opinion that President Bush's policies have been so transparently awful that voters should be eager for an alternative. If that is the case, then there is no need for excessive caution. The Democratic nominee could risk taking some clear stands. Instead, Kerry gave us nothing but feel-good rhetoric and promises on energy, the Budget, trade, and foreign policy that everybody knows are phony.

President Bush has a record. John Kerry is still undefined. Can you beat something with nothing?

Food for thought.

President Bush has a record because he is the current president. John Kerry, obviously, has not had the same chance to build his record. What I\'ve realized is that the voters really have to put a lot of faith into the candidates. I put faith into President Bush over Al Gore four years ago even though he had no \"record\". So the question \"can you beat something with nothing\" is not very relevant in my mind.
