The change to Daylight Savings Time is just hours away. It doesn’t bother me, then again, I am not tied to a strict schedule. But there are reasons that I prefer it.
The President pardoned the submarine sailor who took unauthorized photos of his boat. The reason is fuzzy to me, but it seems to be that Hillary Clinton did it too, so why punish this sailor for doing “the same thing?” Well… for starters, it wasn’t the “same thing.” For seconds, a Nuclear Machinist Mate First Class Petty Officer is a tad bit more important to the National Security than the Secretary of State… yes, I said that. Secretary of State is a “non-job.”
The Seattle Seahawks released Richard Sherman and now he has signed with the 49ers. People up here aren’t sure what to think about that. The Angels new $uper$tar isn’t doing very well…
The Military Parade is a “Dog and Pony Show.” If the President really wants to say “Thank You” to the troops, there are some better ways to do it…
Daylight Saving Time is upon us again and we start the traditional complaining about why we do this amazingly silly thing twice a year. If I had my druthers, I’d prefer that we always stay on DST, even though I went through the national experiment back in the 1970’s when Dick Nixon inflicted it upon us year round because of the energy crises. which wasn’t as much about an energy shortage as it was an economics lesson, and the last time anybody checked, was never actually solved. At any rate, DST has some advantages, but the constant switching back and forth is crazy. Pick one and stick with it. Plus Ben was up at 5:30am today.
Senator Fred Thompson died over the weekend. He was a great example of good, possibly even great, people being misled when he started shilling for overturning the Constitution and adopting the National Popular Vote system.
A Russian airliner crashes in Egypt and ISIL claims credit, even though pretty much nobody believes them. As of today, the airline rejects the theory of mechanical issues or pilot error, and says that the plane experienced “an external impact,” but won’t say what that means. reports are that Putin and Russia are pissed and they are allegedly moving tactical nukes closer to ISIL with the intention of using them. What if this was what they (Russia) wanted all along? Could this whole thing be a maskirovka?
Tomorrow is Election Day. Does it even matter?
