2012 election prediction: It’s 8:15 PM. Barack Obama Wins

You heard it here first. I predict incumbent president Barack Obama will win the 2012 election before any TV stations have announced it.

President Barack Obama Wins 2012 election
I will add more to this post later.

Updated (now with opinion of the 2012 election):

Well, there is now no need to watch 2012 election coverage, the presidential results are in, and it looks like I was correct with this pick.  I can’t say I’m happy about it, as I wanted Gary Johnson (the Libertarian candidate) to win. Some day I hope we will get third party candidates to actually have a shot in the general election. The 2012 election was not that year, but I do think it’s coming. The republican and democrat ideas are basically the same, with slightly different details. Don’t be fooled!

Looking forward to the next presidential election

Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, to me are far to similar. The electoral college to some degree is one of the main elements still giving us a 2-party system in U.S. elections. I feel that more and more   people are waking up to the idea that the amount of change between the 2 major parties is getting thinner and thinner.  It’s often just a shell game of spending money on different things.  The federal budget never goes down.

Other ballot measures

More interesting to me is the fact that gay marriage and recreational marijuana use was passed by the voters in a few states .  Although neither of these will affect me at all, I applaud those voters for making the 2012 election a historic day.  I think that both of these ‘social’ issues passing in some states show the country may be headed in the right direction towards more freedom. We will have to see how these laws hold up against federal laws that may attempt to override them.

On to 8-Ball Cities

I posted about my first win this session in my pool league, but I had plenty of wins in the last session.

My old Thursday team called ‘Slop Shots’ qualified for the 8 ball tri-cities tournament. The first step on the road to Vegas. However, we actually split up for this session.

With very little to play for (since we were no longer a team), there was hardly any pressure. I was very relaxed.

Amazingly our team did well, and we were in one of the Final matches. It came down to me playing against the captain of my Tuesday team and I playing against each other. I won! My ‘old’ Thursday team now moves on to the Cities tournament, and we’ll have to get back together in January.

Go ‘Slop Shots’!

My First Win!

It’s been a rough year for me in fantasy football. Coming into this week I was 0-4, and I was playing against the only 4-0 team left. My chances of a win were to slim to none.

About as much of a chance as the Colts beating the Packers. Ironically, the Colts won…and so did I. My one Packer on my roster, Cedric Benson barely helped. It was mostly a good week for Drew Brees that pushed me over the top.

Though it was not the final score, the screenshot below shows my win! He had no one else playing on Monday night.

Secure Hidden Login: A New WordPress Plugin!

So, it’s official, I am a WordPress Developer!  Today, I finally got around to getting Secure Hidden Login listed on wordpress.org

You can download it here:

Secure Hidden Login For WordPress

Updated:

Creating my first ever WordPress plugin has been very fun.  I’ve already had to release a bugfix release (v0.1.1).  I’ve also released a second version (v0.2) that added some customization (button colors).  I will continue to release and support this plugin with new features and fix any bugs that are found.

Update 2:

I figured that I probably should put another update in this post.  I’ve made a lot of changes to the plugin, and it’s now at v 0.5.1 (I skipped v0.4 and had to fix a bug someone found in v0.5).  You can change colors and select from multiple different login activation modes now.  Check it out!

While it’s not my goal to turn this into a complete and comprehensive security plugin (I’d like to keep it related to invalid login attempts), I will continue to improve it further and further.  In time, it may wind up being among the top Security plugins.

Lastly, remember to support my work and donate!
