    Normally a 3.0 earthquake is no big deal...unless you are on the 2nd floor of the house. At 4am a 3.0 will wake you up. Only posting due to the extraordinary fires in our area and thought "Great. An earthquake would be probably be perfect right about now". Going back to sleep....

    Lost in all this talk about the league losing 10% viewership is the effect on the hot dog vendor and his ability to earn a living because a bunch of overpaid social justice warriors need to make a point about a lie and complete fabrication of statistics by mere innuendo. So, doing a quick back of napkin calculation of what a loss of $200 million means, in terms of economics of hourly employees to revenue, I concluded 500 people would necessarily need to have their hours drastically reduced or would be laid off. That is a staggering amount of people...

    libcom.org ^ | 1999 | About Us Editorial
    For those things which we enjoy most in life - friendship, love, play - the idea of giving them a price is absurd or even obscene. The idea strikes us as absurd because the market does not work by the same principles we do. 'Market forces' leave hundreds of millions starving in a world with surplus food. Millions die of preventable diseases while pharmaceutical companies spend more on marketing than basic research. The market does not recognise human needs unless they are backed up with cash. The only way to get the cash is to work for a boss or...
  • Philanthropist James Phelan had a deep streak of racism

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | June 14, 2017 | MICHAEL SVANEVIK and SHIRLEY BURGETT
    The urge to engage in retroactive political correctness is creating a dangerously slippery slope. Just how far should it go? Take, for example, the story of James Duval Phelan (1861-1930).A multimillionaire of inherited wealth with an uncanny business acumen of his own, Phelan was always acclaimed as a “man of enlightenment” and a patron of the arts and music. Few others were as revered in San Francisco or regarded as a greater friend. There were no secrets about Phelan’s unique political ideas that became frequent themes in campaign oratory. As a senator, he vociferously called for an “all white California,”...
  • Question: Real Time Transmission of Video - Space Travel

    So, here is the dumb question my brother posed: If a ship leaves earth and transmits "LIVE" video as it travels deep into space, would the transmissions continue to be live and real time even as it traveled months and years away from earth? At what point does that transmission actually delay or become part of the past? Bonus question: Assuming the craft continues travel directly away from earth, if it stopped transmitting and then restarted transmitting would that now be real time? Caveat: I don't know the distance that makes the transmission now a part of the past...

    H David Eubank is a former Special Forces Operative turned aid worker. The 56 year old veteran’s Free Burma Rangers aid organization has been in Mosul, Iraq fighting ISIS. He previously was in the military free fall team with the First Special Forces Group, so he is skilled in combat unlike most aid workers. So, when ISIS was firing upon civilians and he saw a little girl about 150 feet away from him, he sprang into action to rescue her. As you can see in the tweeted video below, Eubank is donning only a helmet and a bulletproof vest. He...

    *** The difference between Barry's narcissism and Trump is: Trump looks at the most beautiful girl at the party and says, "I can get her number." Barry lookz at the same girl and say, "She wants me." Trump pursues the girl, Barry walks away, because obviously, she is not good enough for him, besides, someone told him there's a mirror in the next room. Arrogance is the recognition of achievement or possibility. The other is conceit, which pretends it's lack of achievement is worthy of a geek medal...dorks... I'll take the ladies. Morons can take a cold shower... In early...

    Edward Snowden Tweeted the following: "If you're writing about the CIA/@Wikileaks story, here's the big deal: first public evidence USG secretly paying to keep US software unsafe. pic.twitter.com/kYi0NC2mOp" During the time of the dust up over Snowden, I wrote my Seminal article dealing with this. Under the 1996 Telecom Act, Software and Equipment manufacturers are required to provide backdoor access and were compensated to do it. Why? Because, it is unconstitutional to make such a demand. However, as "an Investor" in these companies, the givernment has the right of ownership and access to technologies they "invest in". That is how...

    Just saw Madison Gesiotto on Neil Cavuto discussing a day without imigrant. She was opposed by a another woman, who had synthetic and contrived sound bites regarding citizen, those waiting for years on their papers and conflating illegal immigration with legal citizens, who pay their taxes, come to America to improve the lives of their families. Of course she used obfuscation to describe immigration, refusing to acknowledge the difference between Lawful and Legal Immigration. Stupidly, she told Madison "Your family were immigrants" As Madison pointed out, her family came here as legal immigrants and worked hard to become citizens, who...

    Here are the countries Trump has banned travel from: Let's see, if you haven't been an enemy of the United States since the 1970's, we certainly made one out of you. We overthrew your leaders and then bombed the Shiite out of your people, leaving you without a functioning government. We can do all that but, Gosh Damn, we cannot restrict immigration from those same countries? Syria. We invented Assad for whatever reason and continue to manufacture Bull Shiite about them? We then arm Assad's competition in a totally NOT secret operation, which continues to this day. Why? WTF did...

    So, I am watching events of the last week with Trump winning again and again, as well putting together a pretty amazing cabinet. Then I read some whiny artivle about BIG guns surrounding Trump Tower and my thoughts raced to the movie “Battleship”. The last Epic 5 minutes with music and visuals of the Old Men of America enlisting their help to the new young Men and leaders and uniting in a common mission of defeating the enemy. In this case, some undocumented aliens from outerspace. This is Winning at it's finest and Trump just continues to win and so...
