It wasn't me. You can't prove anything.



You are so toxic, please do not campaign in Scotland. Socialism makes deep roots in Scotland.

War is coming. Full on war with some of the countries involved armed with nuclear weapons.

Does someone finally get it? The patent system needs an overhaul.

I like it. Some call to reinstate the draft in order to bring order to young men’s lives.



What lack of housing in the UK? When you make something scarce, the price goes up. The person in the story says the numbers have been faked or that the reporting is causing people to freak out instead of there being a real lack of housing.

Free is not freedom. Nor is freedom free.

Conform or be cast out. When everyone owns everything, as in Communism, you need bullies to make sure the right people stay in charge of who gets what. i mean, after you bust your ass the first time and someone comes along who sits on their ass all day gets half, you will rethink this whole socialism experiment.

Conspiracy theories are sometimes true. The Holocaust was a conspiracy theory before it was an abomination.

Long hot Summer coming. People are learning that if you go nuts on mass, no one is prepared to stop you. Well, until they are prepared. I predict a mass shooting if too many more riots happen across the U. S. this Summer.

Lying liars gonna lie. Many thousand “lost” IRS emails found on tape backup. Right where they were supposed to be. So, who is going to jail for lying to Congress? ... What, no one? how am I supposed to take lying to Congress seriously if no one goes to jail.

They are not fooling anyone. They are just styfling other voices. Screaming louder is not a proper debate technique.

Bionic eyes on the way. One more step down. it will be nice when losing vision in an eye is no more stressful than say needing a cast for six weeks to mend a broken bone. My issue is in my brain so I doubt this would help me.

I’m hearing that some folks are trying to register stolen smart TVs. i guess the people who stole them are not as smart as the TV. Can’t find citation. Interesting idea though.




F-35 having engine trouble. I thought they swapped the engine before they went to manufacturing. Maybe I’m thinking of another plane.

Oh, shit! Act of war committed by Iran against the U. S.. Not that it matters. What will they try next?

Not all Wal-Mart shoppers are scary hillbillies. Awesome story except for the still got stabbed a couple times part.

A solution that basically no one who lives there likes. Still, needed I guess. Game not canceled due to riots.

Aliens in the ice. (not really. There is bound to be a problem with this)

Guided ammunition. next I want stupid seeking bullets.


Philippines and U. S. still talking to one another. This dispute between Philippines and China is just one more instability in the region.

I wish both sides could lose in Syria sometimes. I’m having a hard time keeping track who is the rebel and who is the regime in some of these fights.

Fast food prices to rise. Well maybe. I bet there will be fast food vending machines like they have in Japan if this all comes to fluissian like they say. Prices might drop if we move to vending machines.

I can use a crowbar for breaking in a house. I can missues an app as well.

Found on a bookshelf at work

Bus today

One time it's better to wait. The bus up there is packed to the rafters.


Late ride


Well done


Welcome to Russia



How jobs will be replaced by robots. I’m also including jobs replaced by a computer without arms or legs.

Manufacturing jobs have already been replaced. The robots there are getting smaller, faster and cheaper. They are also getting more versatile.

Quantifiable effort

Watching the soda guy fill the machine this morning I had a thought. His job is completely quantifiable from top to bottom. Someone can document his job to the single step. How many of what kind of sodas got put in what machines? Truck drivers deliver how much to which places.

Intellectual effort

These are the jobs that robots will take next. Believe it or not, the more intellectual a job is, like doctor, educator, engineer and others will be replaced by automated systems. IBM is falling over itself trying to replace all doctors with a robot that can have access to every drop of current medical data and trends at a moment’s notice.

Interpretive effort
Jobs that require on the spot decisions based as much on emotion as qualifiable rules will be the most difficult to replace without redefining the job completely. Law enforcement comes to mind. There will be great tools to help law enforcement. I’m thinking of Robocop and the gigantic robot that shoots the guy in the conference room and can’t go down stairs. There have been TV shows covering this exact limitation of robots in law enforcement.

Oh, and I really do believe that an increase in the minimum wage is all it will take.


They are starting to use the “B” word when talking about Hillary and her financial foundations.
Calling for an outside audit. People are pissed about the Russians getting control over 1/5 of the US Uranium supply and other shit.

Near miss on Vatican attack. I worry about how many people get missed in these raids.

One of the guys at work had a kidney stone from last Saturday. He just came in this morning looking better. My goodness. I have kidney stones, but they never got me like that. Not yet. I hope they never do. If you will forgive me, I’m headed to the vending machine to get a refillable bottle of water.

One of these days POW!



If this happens like 100 times in the next week, Hillery might just get defeated in the primaries. I shall not hold my breath. Remember, this is all about money, not political standing or ideals.

Fog of war. When you job is to kill people, people die. They don’t wear uniforms.

Wow. This is really bad, but I bet it just rolls off Clinton’s back. This is why we don’t have her emails. Offaly damning evidence hidden in there. I really hope some one like North Korea comes forward and hands us the missing Clinton emails saying “Next time you get an update alert, install it.” Then, the Russians pop up and say “Dang it, they beat us to it.” The Chinese will probably just sit back and chuckle knowingly.

One nanny state idea I support 100%. No exemptions or exceptions unless the kid will die.

Tragic mistake. I’m only surprised it took this long for something like this to happen. it seems of late we have only had one tool in the box of anti terrorism. That tool is drones. it is just damn nice not to have to get your hands dirty (or the boots on the ground dirty) when killing your enemies. Firing from a long way off is just that, a long way off. Up close and personal has its place too.

Every podunk will have nukes. At some point it will be easier to just hand out nukes to all the nations instead of trying to make sure they do not develop them on their own.

Bad call. This is when you know your CEO just doesn’t get it.

My cousin just Tweeted that he is going to do a podcast. He was asking what kind of equipment ot get. I responded with something like “Don’t worry about the equipment. Concentrate on the content.” That is the limit of my advice on most anything online.

Long Distance calls vs data plans


From the learn to shoot first column. Guy shoots himself before having a chance to kill anyone else. There is more to mayhem than 1) point 2) shoot. I wish only that he hadn’t gotten the lone victim.

1948 Israel fight for existence. Today, they fight still.

Deploying somewhere to the middle east to fight ISIS/ISIL. Too bad they are not going to make any more A-10s.

PC is getting us killed. We should revisit this whole political correctness deadlock stuff that prevents people in charge from identifying a real problem, much less fixing it.

We had a need to exit the building today. Well, exit the floor. I went up to one of our other floors. By the time I got setup for working we got the all clear. I could not get email or chat to work because something is wrong with our wifi today. I get no server name lookup service. I was about to pull the plug on the phone and plug it in the back of my laptop when the all clear came. That is one advantage to IP phones I guess.

The only way to be completely cyber secure is to kill everyone else on the planet. Wait, I can probably think of a better one than that.

May be time to bring the FBI back to law enforcement. That might be difficult for some of our leaders to deal with.

Clinton will be the next president. Unless she kills puppies on live TV or has an aneurysm that finishes her off, it is her turn. It doesn’t matter how many bad decisions she has made in the past. It doesn’t matter who is financing her efforts.

Google”s new phone service. I like the price. I still wish it was cheap enough to drop my home internet.

I listened to Flowers for Algernon in a fiction podcast today. I was doing some stuff that didn’t require much thought at the time. I forgot how amazing this story is.
I suck at commas too.

My acid reflux is getting worse. Not horrible, just worse. I get it more often and I get it in spades. It is happening more after lunch now. I’m pretty sure there is a war going on between the gut bacteria I rely on. I only hope none have plans for expansion.

I hadn't realized how similar the ends of this hall are.

Feel naked in a car without a backpack between my legs.



A darker side to refugees. Reported of ethnic cleansing taking place via refugees. Also, terrorists entering Europe in the huddled masses. Gee, wonder if that is happening in the U. S. as well.

This is happening in the U. S. today. People wonder how Hitler got elected. it is because he managed to stop people who warned “Do not vote for guy.” by shouting them down, intimidating them, and raiding their homes and businesses, then locking people in prison.
This is how. Judge dial-a-warrant.

Some new thinking on Iran that is based on an old idea. You might have noticed this sort of thing on shows like Game of Thrones. The art of political hostages.


Dammit! He is right. It is just a matter of time. Scott Adams on brainwashing.

I’m noticing not marking my articles as read. This is really annoying because I follow hundreds of streams daily. There will never be a way I can remember what I’ve already covered. I have several devices and depend greatly on Feedly to be consistent across them. It seems the Android app has had issues making things as read for a long time. Now it appears the web page is doing something similar. I have no experience with iOS for the app.

Oops. I wonder if this guy is just some kind of Sheldon and can’t help himself.
