I have decided that I want to be uncorrupted by money for politics. 
"What's that mean, Barrett?"
Well, with the ‪#‎supremecourts‬ decision yesterday to allow political donors to make a $5,200 maximum payment to each individual political hopeful, it occurs to me that there are those out there that would like to be able to support specific candidates more than the law will allow. 
So as of today, I am willing to announce that my ‪#‎PoliticalDonorSupport‬ is up for sale. 
So...
Do you have a politician that you have already made your $5,200 maximum donation to, that you'd really like to give another $5,200? Contact me. I have not made a single donation this year, so every politician is available. Want to support a senator in Wyoming that you've already donated to? Contact me.
It's simple, you send me a check for $5,200 plus a $1,500 administration fee (which covers the new check from me to your politician) (total = $6,700), you have now supported your candidate twice, and you can brag to the world, that you beat the system by (semi-)privately donating to your prefered candidate.
"But Barrett, what if you have already used someone else's donation to donate to a candidate that I wanted to donate."
No problem. I have friends; and for an additional $300 ($7,000), your donation will still, definitely count. 
Seriously, contact me. We will make it work. 
‪#‎noMaximumDonationSupport‬ ‪#‎makemerich‬ ‪#‎RonPaul2012‬
Let me help you support your candidates.

Anyone seen or heard anything about the #wirelessStreamin  function, like found with #googleChromecast, coming to #googleTV? I figured we'd be hearing about this soon.

This is already possible with the YouTube, PlayOn and Plex. I am sure there are others that I am missing.

I'd prefer to do the invisishield.

this may have already been asked, but is the new #nexus72 going to fit the old desk horizontal dock? or do we think they moved the connectors that the current nexus7 has?

Extremely interesting article about previously unknown network and urban planning that link the world famous temples in Cambodia.

Anyone out there heard anything on when the Sony NSZGS7 or the Vizio Co-Star might be receiving the update to jelly bean? I know we heard that it was coming "within months," more than a several months ago? Anyone know anything?

There have not been any recent mentions of an update to JB for most of the GTV devices. LG have updates some of their TVs to JB and the Sony Bravia TV stick shows as getting an update.

So when are we thinking we are going to see the wireless charging dock? And what about screen protectors or cases? Anyone seen anything like that yet?

Thoughts and prayers go out to the Colbert family. Lorna Colbert was a beloved mother to eleven children.

I realize a lot of my friends don't like The Colbert Report, but last night he dropped the conservative act to honor and publicly cherish his mother. He said something that holds true to most of us. "... if you (also) like me, that's because of my mom." I think that statement runs true for so many people.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, as well as my friends in Charleston that know Lorna Colbert, either in passing or personally. You can do a search and find stories that are personal to many people that will miss her. Church friends, neighbors and all of those that were attached to her in her 91 years. 

Just cherish those you hold close.

Amen to that! And we all owe a debt of gratitude to Lorna Colbert for the hours of laughter (the elixir of life!) her son has provided us. And, the very fact that she has 11 children makes her a saint, in my eyes.

Absolutely, the very best sandwich shop that I have ever been to. Everyday, there is the thought of having lunch, or dinner there. The #13 Italian is amazing on wheat.

Had the Tell-Tale Heart Burger and Fries. Very taste. Asked for it Medium, and it may have been a little bit more Medium-Well, than Medium, but it was still, very good. Sat out on the porch, on a "Hot!" Sullivan Island day, but was comfortable! It was actually cooler outside on the porch with the breeze, than it was inside. If you're in the area, definitely check it out. Definitely worth your time, and money.

I have never had a bad meal from here. I nearly always get a #19, all the way on a wheat roll. Great sandwich. All of the food and ingrediants are terrific. If you're looking for a good sandwich, that's where you should head. It's my second favorite sandwich shop, right behind Jersey Mike's!
