On the same night we interviewed attorney Philip Berg about his lawsuits demanding Obama prove he is a natural born citizen and thus qualified to hold the office of the president, WorldNetDaily reported on the latest lawsuit – this one brought against Congress for failing to vet then president-elect Obama’s qualifications.

The case names as defendants Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S. Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The hour-long interview on my radio program drew record numbers of listeners last Friday night.

Earlier we interviewed California attorney Dr. Orly Taitz, who also is bringing suit against Obama at the Supreme Court level.

Imagine life

Life: Imagine the Potential, written up at WorldNetDaily and posted at You Tube,
where it was viewed more than a million times in 12 days, is the first video release of a national media campaign launched by Catholic Vote.

It’s titled “Life: Imagine the Potential” and was rejected by NBC for its Super Bowl broadcast. After several days of negotiations, an NBC representative in Chicago told Catholic Vote that NBC and the NFL were not interested in advertisements involving “political advocacy or issues.” The pro-life ad celebrates President Barack Obama’s mother’s decision not to abort the first black American president.

A warning error

Were you among those whose websites were marked dangerous? Google users around the world were hit by a malfunction that incorrectly reported every other website as potentially harmful. An apparent system error left millions of visitors to the site puzzled when links to all search results were flagged with the warning, “This site may harm your computer.”

The glitch prevented Internet users from directly clicking through to search results. It was fixed within 30 minutes. Google paranoia runs deep. Internet users were immediately suspicious.

It took four years for Google to address the “Google bomb” that was lobbed at former President Bush. But it took the Internet behemoth only a few days to defuse the same attack on President Obama.

The Google search page is the most popular on the Internet, with several hundred million queries each day. It is the most common homepage and accounts for almost four out of every five Internet searches, making it a crucial part of the global economy.

Too much bureaucracy – at Google?

Why do Google employees quit? In a piece by Michael Arrington at Tech Crunch, a thread shows a brutal honesty about what it’s like to work at Google, at least from the point of view of employees who were unhappy enough to resign. Top amongst the complaints is low pay relative to what they could earn elsewhere, and disappearing fringe benefits seemed to elevate the concern. Other popular gripes – too much bureaucracy, poor management, poor mentoring, and a hiring process that took months.

The cost of talking about your product

Here are the fastest growing sites and a breakdown of where the display advertising budgets are going.

The cost of printing

Printing the New York Times costs twice as much as sending every subscriber a free Kindle, an e-book reader, an embedded system for reading electronic books (e-books). The Kindle, worth $359, can be used without a computer.

According to the Times’ third quarter 2008, the company spends $63 million per quarter on raw materials and $148 million on wages and benefits. It’s reported the wages and benefits for just the newsroom are about $200 million per year.

After multiplying the quarterly costs by four and subtracting that $200 million out, a rough estimate for the Times’ delivery costs would be $644 million per year.
