This Week at The Conservative Journal: September 27th- October 3rd

Sorry posting was so non-existent Friday and Saturday.  I was extremely busy with work and I didn’t have much free time.  But this week I should be back on schedule with regular posting.  Here’s a look at you can expect for the week ahead:

Sunday

  • I’m pretty much going to play catch up today and post the big stuff I was planning on posting at the end of last week but didn’t get to due to time constraints.  That means you can look for that “Fireside Chat” with a former Barack supporter, and some “Thrilling Thursday” posts.

Monday

  • Look for an addition to the “Hall of Fame”  in the form of a “Seal of Approval” and, if time permits, a response to last week’s EnergyFLA post that answers questions you’ve sent in.  I’ve had a great response to that so far, so if you want to have your question answered, send it to me at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Tuesday

  • If there’s any fresh garbage at the DUmp, look for a “DUmmies Exposed” post.  Considering it’s the DUmp, you can be sure they’ll do something post-worthy.

Wednesday

  • Be sure and stop by on Wednesday so you can check out what I’m checking out!  What blog or site will be featured next?  Stop by on Wednesday to find out!

Thursday

  • IT’S THRILLING THURSDAY EVERYBODY!!  I’ll be back on schedule to post recaps of The Office, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, Fringe, and possibly FlashForward.  I totally forget to record that one last week, so we’ll see if I like it.  Also, I’ll announce the winner of the comment/e-mailing contest and then lay down the details of the next “Thrilling Thursday” contest.

Friday

  • I’m going to go ahead and say it’ll probably just be regular scheduled posting, i.e. the daily posts.  If it turns out I’m free Friday, I’ll be sure to post away!

Saturday

  • Someone’s going to be inducted into the “Plaque of Fail” section of the Hall of Fame, so be sure and stop by with your pitch fork in hand to drive the village idiot into the cave of exile.  Or just read the post.  Whatever works.

Be sure and check out all the exciting things taking place this week at The Conservative Journal!

This Week at The Conservative Journal: September 20th- 26th

Generally, these posts will run on Sundays, as that’s the beginning of the week.  I realize that posting this on Tuesday isn’t quite as effective, but I just decided I’d do it a few minutes ago.  These posts will just contain the high points of what to expect during the week.  The content scheduling may change, and many posts not listed will be posted throughout the week.  Here’s a quick overview:

Wednesday

  • Check This Out: Get a look at the latest hot blog that received the “Check This Out Award”!

Thursday

  • Look for a recap of “Fringe” and review of the Kings of Leon’s latest album “Only By the Night”.  The usual recaps of “Parks and Recreation”, “Weekend Update”, and “The Office” will come on Friday or Saturday, as I will be out of the house during their air time on Thursday.  Also, make sure you stop by Thursday to see the details on the “Thrilling Thursday” content for the week.

Friday

  • Chances are, posting will be light on Friday, if not non-existent.  As of now, I think I’ll be working late again Friday, but I’ll let you know if these changes.

Saturday

  • Look for a “Fireside Chat” with an American who became a fan of Barack during the campaign and is now deeply regretting his decision.  This one’s sure to be interesting!

There’s the highlights for the week!  Don’t forget to stop by daily and check out the latest Conservative Journal content.  And remember, these aren’t the only post scheduled for each day, just the big ones.

Fireside Chats: Catch ’em Now at The Conservative Journal

I love to use what little creativity I have and create new mini-series.  That lastest addition to the growing family of mini-series that’s giving the Duggars a run for the money is Fireside Chats; basically Q&A’s with people that have done something important or have something important to say.  Anyone’s really eligible as the subject of one of these chats; whether they be an up-and-coming blogger, a business owner, a political activist, a bean farmer, the list goes on and on.

I’ll be kicking off this series this afternoon with a Q&A with Mike S., an Alabama resident who participated in The 9/12 Project Rally in DC on Saturday.  Be sure you come back at 8 CST to check that out!

If you or anyone you know has something they’d like to say in a fireside chat, e-mail me the details at theconservativejournal@gmail.com or leave the info in a comment.

Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com: Check This Out!

Featured Blog Winners!

Andrew Breitbart opened up his latest venture, BigGovernment.com, by releasing the tapes of the ACORN controversy stright to the site.  A pretty good way to make an entrance, huh?

BigGovernment.com has since been the hub for news on the ACORN scandal, causing the site to explode onto the blogosphere.  The site features about 10 contributors as of now, and seems to me like it will be more conservative version of the Huffington Post, which was also primarily created by Andrew Breitbart.  Contributors included: Creator Andrew Breitbart, Editor in Chief Mike Flynn, the “prostitute” in the ACORN videos Hannah Giles, Townhall.com contributor Ken Blackwell, DC attorney and journalist Ken Klukowski, President and CEO of FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe, radio show host Dana Loesch, chairmen of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce Health Care Council Doug O’Brien, and the “pimp” in the ACORN videos James O’Keefe.  Quite a group, wouldn’t you say?

BigGovernment.com is the go to place to get the latest on the ACORN scandal and other news.  Check it Out today!

Blogging Tip: How NOT To Increase Your Readership

You see post after post of “How To Get More Blog Readers” and “Increase Your Ad Revenue by 500% In a Week!”, but you never see a post about how NOT to increase your readership.  This post is going to be short, because in the 11 months I’ve been blogging, about 10 minutes ago is the first time I’ve learned a lesson in how not to blog:

Do. Not. Over. Tag. Your. Posts.

WordPress blogs are greater than all other hosted blogs.  Reason?  Well, once you get past WordPress’s generally awesomeness, it’s the fact that WordPress.com gives you a great tool to publicize your blog through tags and categories.  For those not familiar with tags, here’s an easy-to-understand definition:  words or short phrases that describe your post.  You simply type them into the “Post Tags” line next to an under-construction WordPress post and SHAZAM!  Your post is now at the top of the listing for each tag you typed in.

This feature is no doubt a huge assets to starting bloggers, and veteran bloggers alike.  When I started my blog, I saw this feature and took notice of its great power.  In my excitement, I decided I should harness the full power of WordPress tags by taggingeach post with nearly every word included in the post, plus some general tags like “Politics”, “News”, “Entertainment”, etc.  This went on for about 11 months (meaning from blog startup until a few minutes ago).  I was surfing the “Education” tag category to catch up on the latest opinions about Barack’s big speech today and I noticed that my grade-A post wasn’t listed anywhere on the listing.  Of course I had tagged “Education” to the post.  So I looked around and it finaly dawned on me that there COULD be a tag limit.  I thought about it and I realized that no one else ever used a trillion tags but me; I guess I just thought I was the only one that caught onto that trick.  I decided to post my question in the forums and was promptly given a response by a great forum member (Raincoaster):  Wordpress blocks your posts out after around 10 or 12 tags/categories, and after several posts of over 12 tags/categories, you are considered a tag spammer.

Well imagine my excitement when I learned that I’m pretty much number 1 on “WordPress’s Most Wanted” since I regularly use upwards of 100 tags on each post.  That would explain why I never get hits from wordpress tags.  I figure it’s better to not be getting hits because I’m in the “WordPress Tag Slammer” than because my content is boring.

Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Happy Labor Day Everybody!

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great labor day weekend.  I didn’t have to work today, but I did spend the majority of my day laboring. I had to catch up on some work stuff so I didn’t get much relaxation time today.  I did, however, get to have a great supper with all of my family and it was a lot of fun.  That’s about all for today, but I’ll be back on my regular blogging shedule tomorrow.

Again, I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Thoughts From Around the Blogosphere: Reaction to Van Jones’s Resignation and Controversy

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but there so much fun so I’m about to start again.  For those that don’t know how this works, I google blogsearch “Van Jones” and take a random sampling of the results and clip out important bits, as well as throw in some of my favorite bloggers’ thoughts.  Here’s the blogosphere’s reaction to the resignation of former green jobs advisor, Van Jones:

DPGI- the aftermath

Just put Bush’s name in any of these stories – war, spending, personal associations, agenda, czars, “dictatorship” – and then, recall the panty-twisting furor of the Left from the past eight years. Kind of telling to see the sand in their crotch was Bush, not what Bush did because Obama is following Bush’s path in many ways.

Quipster

The special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality apparently believes that his past actions are being used as “lies and distortions,” and are not worthy of scrutiny for the special government position he enjoyed.

Citizens Against Pro-Obama Media Bias

They ranted on and on about the “birthers” and compared them to the “truthers” and lo and behold one of barry’s special advisors is a truther…to begin with.

The Transporter

Van Jones resigns as President Obamas green jobs czar. All I can think of to say is not soon enough, not soon enough. The president should check into the backgrounds of some people before he hires them to save the embarrassment.

Newsreal (I strongly recommend reading this article, it’s one of my favorites regarding Jones)

The point is not that President Obama will not tolerate people with Van Jones’ views to serve in his administration: he obviously will, because he did and he defended Jones to the bitter end. The point is Jones is becoming part of Obama’s increasingly familiar pattern: associate with radical leftists, give them as much power and prominence as possible in their own right, and disavow them only if they begin to hurt your ability to radicalize the system from within.

The Political Inquirer

One down a whole administration yet to go.

Citizen Obie

Van Jones made a mistake. Van Jones did and said some things I think he probably regrets. In fact, I know he does, because he said so. But where I see a mistake, Glenn Beck and the rightist bloggers who carried out this campaign saw an opportunity to tar and feather (and yes, that image is deliberate) the very symbol of the green jobs movement, and to characterize that movement, and by extension the presidency, as a communist cabal intent on imposing a reverse-racist tyranny on good Christian straight White Americans.

Betsy’s Page

How viciously sneaky of the right wing. They dared to use the man’s own words against him.

All American Blogger

I’m not saying I had anything to do with this, but I did write one heck of a blogosphere roundup on the matter.

California Conservative

Conservatives often joke that the Left’s definition of a dirty campaign is using their words against them. That seems to fit with Van Jones’ resignation letter.

The Lonely Conservative

Despite the fact that the MSM completely ignored the news of Van Jones’s past, the radical commie Green Jobs Czar has quit. And of course he’s blaming it on the folks who had the nerve to dig up his past. Not that it was hard.

Glenn Beck

The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.

Van Jones Resigns: A Display of the Power of Fox News

Wow, I think I truly am shocked about this.

I haven’t been following the Van Jones saga much lately because I’d seen what I needed to see:  the guy is crazy and he is (was) an advisor to the president.  If I’m being perfectly honest, I assumed that he was here to stay so I just tried to block out all of the controversies surrounding him during my daily dose of Glenn Beck so I wasn’t freaked out even further.

So when I got home from church today, I was surprised to find on the AOL home page that Van Jones had resigned as green jobs advisor amid all the controversy.  But again, rather than owning up to his past statements and claims, Jones simply said he needed to leave due to the “vicious smear campaign” against him.  Van.. Buddy.. It’s not a smear campaign when it’s true.  Admit responsibility for your actions and leave with a little bit of dignity.  Without a doubt Jones knew that he was fast becoming baggage for the administration and that he probably wouldn’t be able to make many green jobs when the vast majority of America is against him.  In fact, AOL’s poll (I know it’s not scientific, but they’re usually pretty close) has 91%  giving Jones resignation a “Thumbs Up” and only 9% a “Thumbs Down”.

Glenn Beck, pat yourself on the back for this one

The whole debacle would have never gotten anywhere without all the coverage Glenn Beck has devoted to Van Jones over the past few days.  He’s constantly been pounding viewers with video clips and quotes from Van Jones that serve as an illustration of his lunacity.  The message obviously resonated with viewers; “Van Jones” was a trending topic on Twitter at the start of the weekend and the blogosphere has been ripe with “Get Rid of Jones!” posts.  Once the rest of the right-media (Basically Fox News) caught on to the situation, Sean Hannity picked it up and then it was all over.  When you’ve got the second biggest radio personality and quite possibly the most controversial cable news host broadcasting concrete evidence of insanity, somethings got to change.  And that my friends, is change we can believe in.

Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Exlporer, Safari… WHICH INTERNET BROWSER DO I USE?!

Unless you spend a lot of time reading the specifications and hard details of internet browsers, you probably don’t know what half of internet browser reviewers are talking about.  When I read that Google Chrome uses the latest NVIDIA 8600 Graphics Unit, my head starts to explode a little.  And the fact that Mozilla Firefox has 1 GB of RAM and a 1200x Processesing Core means nothing to me.  What I would like to read is a user account of the performances by each of the major internet browsers.  Well, lucky for you, that’s exactly what this is.  So sit down and buckle up because this is my first forray into technological smartness stuff, and it’s sure to get ugly along the way.

Which is the best internet browser; Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari?

Which is the best internet browser; Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari?

Internet Explorer 8.0

You know, the only positive thing I can come up with is that Internet Explorer has great support.  Probably the best of all of the browsers I used.  However, 99% of people have never and will never use or care about Costumer Service and Support for their internet browser.  So this is pretty much useless.  I used IE 8 when it first came out, and as with all Internet Explorers, I was unimpressed.  Right out of the box it was one of the slower browsers.  When you begin to download toolbars, however, it gets really ugly.  I was operating an election 2008 toolbar and a StumbleUpon Toolbar on each browser that had support for those applications and Internet Explorer took the add ons the worst.  Pair that with the fact that as I type this the only browser that isn’t working of the four I have downloaded is Internet Explorer (It’s telling me I’m offline.  Clearly that’s not the case.), and it’s obvious that it’s the weakest of the bunch.  For slow loading and start times, not to mention poor stability, I give IE 8 2 of 5 stars.

Mozilla Firefox 3.0

Mozilla definitely pulled out all the stops with their Firefox browser’s third version.  The newest version features better privacy features, quicker performance, and, coolest of all, new applications.   The best thing to be said about Firefox is it’s vast expanse of applications.  Like the iPhone, I can assure you “there’s an app for that”.  Whether it be a theme or a weather widget, the mozilla.com has it all.  Thankfully, Firefox can handle the extra applications.  I’ve installed over 20 applications, and website loading time hasn’t been drastically increased.  However, I’ve been experiencing some stability problems with the latest update to Firefox.  The browser often crashes and leaves me having to restart and try and remember all of the tabs I have open since it doesn’t save your tabs by default.  Definitely an inconvenience, but not a deal breaker.  For the vast array of applications, Firefox still gets 3.5 of 5 stars.

Apple Safari

When Apple announced the release of the Safari browser to Windows-based computers, I was pumped.  I’d heard all my Mac friends talk about how zippy Safari was for years, so of course I needed to be a part.  Unfortunately, like most things, Safari must work best in its home environment because I was not all that impressed.  Though Safari has the second best start-up time, it’s all a big scam.  Once the window starts up the browser stalls for 3 to 4 seconds then loads.  Though Safari was the second most stable browser in my tests, the 3 to 4 second delay between page loads is extremely annoying.  When you’re running several tabs, that adds many minutes on to your browsing experience.  And quite frankly, Safari doesn’t have the extra features to justify the slow performance.  For that I give it 2.5 of 5 Stars.

Google Chrome

Ahhh Google, you amaze me.  As if Google wasn’t cool enough already, they release a killer internet browser that blew the competition out of the water.  Once I finally got around to downloading Chrome, I found that it was what I’d always looked for in an internet browser.  The window pops up immediately after clicking the icon, and the home page loads quickly after.  It amazes how Chrome manages to open and load so much faster than the other browsers when they are all operating on the same wireless network.  Each time I click a link or load a page, I’m amazed by the speed of Chrome.  I’m so amazed, in fact, that nearly every time I get the chance I tell my friends and colleagues to download Chrome.  It’s allowed me to be so much productive when on the internet because it doesn’t have the unstableness of Fireforx, the stalling of Safari, or the generally crapiness of Internet Explorer.  For being far superior to anything I’ve ever seen, I give a perfect score of 5 out of 5 Stars.

Final Score:

  1. Google Chrome: 5 out of 5
  2. Mozilla Firefox: 3.5 out of 5
  3. Apple Safari: 2.5 out of 5
  4. Internet Explorer 2.5 out of 5

The Inquiring Mind: Check This Out!

Featured Blog Winners!We in the United States are very opinionated people.  We are also very biased depending on our location, family views, etc.  For example, being from the south, I have a predilection to cringe at the world liberal, as northerners do for the word Republican (Exaggerated metaphor, do not e-mail me about it.  I know every liberal doesn’t cringe over a Republican.).  So in order to truly get an unbiased opinion, I feel like we have to look elsewhere; meaning outside the U.S.  Well, The Inquiring Mind is good for just that.  This New Zealander describes himself as liberal on social issues, but right-leaning on economic, making him an even better source for an unbiased view.  The Inquiring Mind covers a plethora (Word of the Day) of issues, from goings about in New Zealand, to entertainment, to political issues spanning the globe; not to mention hilarious political cartoons.  I strongly recommend The Inquiring Mind be added to your daily blog visits!
