SunFyre for President

A few years back I did a post that was tongue-in-cheek saying that I wasn't comfortable voting for George W. Bush or John Kerry.  Therefore, I had decided to run myself.  I didn't win.

This year I'm much more comfortable voting for Barack Obama or John McCain.  I'll let you know on Wednesday in November who got my vote, but until then it's my little secret.  The reality is that I don't think we can go wrong with either man as President.  Both seem to be intelligent, high integrity, and honest individuals who are both running for office for the right reasons.  You may disagree with me, but compared to the last four elections I think we have better opportunities for a good president than we've had in two decades.

With that being said, I'm still going to run.  Unfortunately I forgot to submit my paperwork so you'll have to write me in.  I'd be a great President, but I am a procrastinator.

Over the next few days I'm going to publish my platform on my blog.  I encourage your comments, even negative ones.  If you think I'm an idiot then tell me so, but be prepared to back it up.  If you think I'm a freaking genius... I already know you are correct, but it would be nice to hear it anyhow.

Here's my slogan... fixing everything that is wrong in the world, and fixing a few things that were perfectly fine.

By the way, I'm also excepting ideas for my vice presidential short list, so send me your nominations by e-mail (SunFyre@SunFyre.com) or posting a comment.

  1. I see no platform. The election isn't that far away. If you want any votes, you'd better stop procrastinating and start writing.

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
