Lindsay Lohan Goes To Court

It looks that Lindsay Lohan does not have right to consume alcohol as reported by the Associated Press. The AP reports

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — A judge on Monday ordered Lindsay Lohan to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and refused to ease restrictions involving drug and alcohol testing so the actress can film a movie in Texas.

Lohan, wearing a dark gray suit, arrived in court a few minutes late and appeared somber and concerned when she conferred with her attorney about the move to attach the bracelet to her ankle and require drug testing every week in the Los Angeles area.

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, told Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel that Lohan was planning to travel to Texas to film a movie, but the judge suggested the actress may have to delay the project.

Revel offered to spend a half-hour reading Lohan and Holley a list of reasons for ordering the bracelet, drug tests and an alcohol-education program. Holley declined the offer and accepted the judge’s decision.

Lohan, 23, did not address a throng of media outside the courthouse before joining Holley at the hearing.

The actress has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges.

Revel set a probation violation hearing for July 6 to address Lohan’s failure to appear in court last week for a scheduled progress report on the probation stemming from the two high-profile arrests.

Lohan spent more than two hours after the hearing waiting for a bracelet to be placed on her ankle. The device gets a signal through the skin if a person has been drinking and sends the signal to the company that monitors it, court spokesman Alan Parachini said.

Lohan must wear the bracelet until the July hearing, when the judge will decide if it will remain in place, Parachini said”

Lindsay just needs to realize that alcohol does not work and the party scene is over for her. The better life is to quit alcohol, attend AA meetings frequently, focus on acting, and live the spiritual life. Stay away from the spotlight. Learn that the universe does not revolve around you and that wealth and fame do not buy happiness. Rather, they cause you to drink.

Is she going to do that? The answer is no and the train wreck called Lindsay Lohan will continue to be a headache for America. The media should stop pay attention to her, and perhaps, that is the solution that she needs.

No I-Pads Allowed Yankees Stadium

You want to bring a I-Pad to Yankee’s stadium. Forget it, you cannot bring an I-Pad to Yankee game. Personally, I do not see why people want to take a laptop to a baseball game. With the high cost of tickets, you expect people to pay attention to the game and not spend on a computer surfing the internet.

I can understand people using a smartphone to check scores of other games, to quickly check e-mail, or make status updates on Facebook during a game. But, to bring a bulky device to the game like an I-Pad to a game just does not make any sense. It just ruins the experience, period.

Thomas Jefferson On Banks

Thomas Jefferson wrote “”I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

The banks are dangerous institutions with their reckless ways. Either they should have been nationalized and broken up with the Sherman Anti-Trust act or let market forces to let them collapse. The forces of creative destruction would taken them out and new banks would rise in their place.

Obama was too cozy to the bankers. And we will pay again for this mistake sometime in the future

HTC Incredible and Cut and Paste

So I get this new phone called the HTC Incredible and I thought it was the best phone that I could get on the market. So far, it lived up to the name “Incredible” except for one feature, cut and paste. The cut and paste feature is complicated compared to Windows Mobile which had a far better cut and paste ability. Eventually, I am going to master the copy and paste feature but it will take a long time.

On the I-Phone, they make everything look so easy. Easy to take pictures and easy to cut and paste on the phone without a hassle. Not is the case on the Android phones. No, Google likes to make things complicated. And that is one thing that annoys me about my phone.

However, the features are the phone make it better phone than the my old Windows Mobile phone. Just the sheer amount of Internet radio stations on the phone makes it better with the Windows Mobile. However, the cut and paste feature is definitely not something to write home about this phone.

The Normal Life

Somebody wrote today about a normal life. The author stated

Normal life (whatever that is) has its share of ups and downs along the way, we learn. So, no surprises there; as adults we expect the valleys along with the mountains and we sometimes learn to take most of them in stride, wobbly though the strides may be”

Currently, my life has lots of small hills with lots of valleys in between. I am grateful for that
