The Birthday Calculator

Thanks to Richard Nolle’s for this fun site: The Birthday Calculator.

Input your birthdate and out comes this amazing amount of information: Your Life Path number, the sign in the Chinese Zodiac and the Native American Zodiac. I discovered my Native American sign is Raven which is fascinating to me because ravens are always shouting at me. You get your Egyptian and Hebrew birthdays, the Mayan Calendar long count, and the Islamic calendar date.

You get to find out how old you are in hours, minutes and seconds and how old you are in dog years. As if that’s not enough, you will know how many BTUs your birthday candles will give off.

It’s a fun way to blow off stress following the election and gives a little comic relief as well.

Meet Nancy Pelosi!

After the Democrats swept Congress in the mid-term election, Nancy Pelosi will be the new Speaker of the House, the first woman ever to hold that position. Breaking glass ceilings is nothing new for Nancy; she was the first Minority Whip back in 2001 and once the Democrats take over the House in January she will be third in line for the Presidency.

Nancy Pelosi was a homemaker married to a wealthy banker turned real estate developer until her last child was a high school senior, after which she began working her way up in the California Democratic party. Because of her husband’s wealth she has been criticized by both Republicans and progressive Democrats for her fundraising practices which illegally used multiple PACs to exceed federal fundraising limits (the PACS were immediately shut down when declared illegal). She has raised more money for Democrats than anyone else other than the Clintons. She has also been criticized for signing off, along with Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, on President Bush’s NSA spy program. Pelosi is reviled by Republicans as a “San Franciso Liberal,” hinting at her support of gay marriage although she has been cagey on this issue which has drawn fire from liberals as well. Correctly, she sees this issue as a diversionary tactic to draw attention from the real issues of the day: the war in Iraq and the state of the US.

Still, Nancy Pelosi is generally respected and admired by Democrats and has shown a strong and fiery leadership style. She has brought the congressional Democrats together to form a solid voting bloc, sometimes with encouragement and sometimes by withholding funds. House Democrats under her leadership have […]

Who could’ve seen this coming

Mercury is retrograde for the first time during an election since the one in 2000, and we all know how that turned out: a few hanging chads determined the course of history.

MSNBC reports:

Programming errors and inexperience dealing with electronic voting machines frustrated poll workers in hundreds of precincts early Tuesday, delaying voters in Indiana, Ohio, Miss. and Florida and leaving some with little choice but to use paper ballots instead.

In Cleveland, voters rolled their eyes as election workers fumbled with new touchscreen machines that they couldn’t get to start properly until about 10 minutes after polls opened.

The New York Times reports:

No one expects Florida elections to go smoothly, but this year the state got off to an alarming start. Voters reported that after selecting Democratic candidates on electronic voting machines, the review screens registered that they had chosen Republicans. A spokeswoman for the Broward County supervisor of elections told The Miami Herald that the machines often fall out of sync under heavy use, but that they can be fixed when voters complain.

With Mercury (along with the Sun and Venus) in a tight square to Neptune the Times goes on:

Unfortunately, many of the things that go wrong [today] may be invisible to the average voter. Machines that appear to work properly may be throwing out or altering votes. Without a voter-verified paper trail and an effective vote audit, this can go undetected. Provisional ballots may be wrongly rejected after the polls close. Some states, shamefully, have laws saying that if a provisional ballot is cast in the correct polling place but at the wrong table, it will not count.

Hopefully the result will be clear enough that it is beyond dispute. Otherwise we could be in […]

Only YOU can bring back our country. Yes, Mercury is retrograde and Saturn is opposite Neptune and Pluto is getting ready to conjunct the Galactic Center, but the fate of the world is in YOUR hands. Get out there and vote and be a part of creating a new world.
