It is becoming rapidly apparent to me that the Singularity is upon me. From my wife’s new car to my business to dinosaurs are coming back, it is clear that technology is quickly overwhelming everything. And that is probably not a good thing…
The Bush funeral reminds us that it is actually possible to find the good in every person. Even the ones the ones you may not like.
On this day in 1933 the State of Utah, which is known for its beer and strip clubs (seriously) became the State that put the 18th Amendment to bed once and for all.
And it’s Cami’s Birthday week. So I am off to begin the required observations.
It’s reasonably clear to me that there is no way that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Jeff Flake’s flaking has pretty much sealed the fate of the nominee. So where do we go from here?
My phone rang twenty-two times yesterday. One – just one – of the calls was legit. Before you ask, yes, I am on the Do-Not-Call registry, but it appears that the telemarketers, scammers and bill collectors don’t actually care about that and they have found a way to bypass it anyway. By next year, in strategic terms 2020, but it’s closer than you think – fully 50% of the calls you receive could be from robocall scammers.
in Alabama, a local Preacher has opened a new Dinosaur attraction where he explains that the creatures were “900-year-old lizards that never stopped growing.” He goes on to call evolution “the dumbest religion ever” which is surprising, but also not surprising. Cami and I found ourselves in a discussion on Sunday that related to this attitude. Again, I am not an atheist, I am a guy with questions. Lots and lots of questions…
A Spokane NAACP President turns out to be “hiding” a secret… she is not African-American. But instead of admitting the truth and dealing with the consequences of her fraud and her lie, she has now managed to become the victim of all of this, claiming that she is “transracial” and that #wrongskin and #TransRacialLivesMatter. In fact, she goes so far as to compare herself with Bruce Jenner and Michael Jackson as fellow “TransHeroes.”
The TransDemocrats who run the House were upset that the Trade Package fell apart on Friday when Democrats abandoned a program that for forty years the GOP has been saying is a waste of money, a sop to union voters and a scam. So what did the GOP leadership do in an attempt to save the Trade deal?
Paleontologists are upset because the Jurassic Park Films are “not portraying dinosaurs in a realistic light.” Seriously…
At the end of the day, you have the “right” to pretend to be anything you choose. What you do not have the right to do, is compel anybody else to ignore reality for your fantasy. #RealLifeMatters
