I am so out of it

Things use to seem pretty simple growing and living much of my life.  Today, I’m a anachronism.  I know why and I choose not to change. Read more…

The Internet

November 28th, 20171 comment

The FCC is going to do away with past rules on net neutrality.  It will allow the ISP to charge for “fast lane” access.  Right now there is no discrimination.  Every site must be treated the same.  The new rules will let the ISP charge for the very services that are now free to all.  That means you may end up with low resolution in the videos you view if the provider doesn’t pay them — Netflix, Youtube, Ted and all the rest will have to come after us to fund being able to fully use their service.  They have a working business model and that will have to change and change at our cost.

Bad News

December 9th, 2016No comments

It’s a term.  Hey man, that dude is bad news.   Or,  I got good news and bad news; which do you want first?  But today’s bad news requires adding one more possibility in the dictionary.  3. Politically incorrect. Read more…

One of my RSS feeds is fivethirtyeight.com.  I read maybe one out of 5 of their posts and maybe just scan that one.  It is the site run by the guy who picked all the state results a couple of elections ago.  Lucky he didn’t start with this one. Read more…

The Arrogance of Power

No, this isn’t about “The Donald”.   It could be, I guess.  This is about Secretaries of State.  It’s about two former ones.  Wanna guess? Read more…

Hillary’s Mens Rea

July 6th, 20161 comment

No, this isn’t about me be a peeping tom.  Mens Rea is lawyer-speak for State of Mind.  And, that is what got her out of the hot water.  Yes, she stored classified info on her personal mail server.  Yes, she was briefed on how classified info must be protected. But, nobody thinks here state of mind was such that she’s culpable.  At least that’s what the Attorney General’s office told us yesterday. Read more…

Perfection

The title is an interesting term.   My Uncle Mac understood it differently.  He was an interesting man — my great-uncle really and married to my grandmother’s sister.  Sweet ladies both.  Uncle Mac installed coal slips out west back in the days when it was still the wild west.  When I knew him he was managing a tool and die shop.  In between, he’d been a professional trap shooter for the Hercules powder company.  He said,  “Perfection is attained only by hard studies and constant practice.”  I guess that works for tool and die making, reading blue prints, and busting clay pigeons.  Read more…

Damned if you do; Damned if you don’t

One thing the three-month hiatus did was keep me from making a really bad prediction.  Back then, I would surely pontificate, “There is no way Trump could be nominated”. So that’s not part of the record, but it sure would have been. Read more…

You gotta watch this

It comments about politics by a politican.  Now that should scare you.  But, here is a guy with a sense of humor and some common sense. Read more…
