SpaceX Flight Ends in Catastrophe [again]

Spacex rocket landing

Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched another rocket and the mission ended just as the previous two barge-landings had – in a fireball. Falcon lands on droneship, but the lockout collet doesn't latch on one the four legs, causing it to tip over post landing. Root cause may have been ice buildup due to condensation from heavy fog at liftoff. A video ...

Google Designs the Self–Absorbed Car for the Self–Absorbed Man

Self Driving Car meme

To give you an idea of how far the nation’s confidence has retreated from the exuberance of the 60’s — I promise this isn’t an endorsement of Donald Trump — just look at current automotive culture. Government Motors designs flimsy boxes to conform to arbitrary fuel efficiency standards. Electric cars, which the government wants a select few to drive while ...

self driving car license

Perceptive conservatives have long been suspicious of ‘mass transit’ because of the term’s Karl Marxian connotations. For the left that’s a selling point because wedging the masses into mass transit allows ‘experts’ to decide where we will work and where we will live. The only roadblock, so to speak, is the automobile. People like cars because personal vehicles embody individual ...

Obama Internet Giveaway May Open Pandora’s Box of Porn

Porn hook

President Obama has a new administration initiative, supported by tax dollars, to close the Internet pornography gap. The divide is caused by ill–gotten gains that give too many Americans fast, broadband access to the booming porn industry; while other Americans are reduced to lurking in seedy newsstands, sneaking peeks between the pages of lurid magazines and hoping the clerk doesn’t ...

People of Honor and Integrity Need Not Apply!

RapePain

It seems like the more I do stories about our institutions of higher learning, the more I come to the conclusion that there are no real standards for those teaching our young people. You may need a degree in order to teach, but that’s about all. Honor and integrity are no longer required. Once again, my home state of Massachusetts ...

Word of the day – “MICROAGGRESSION”.

black-white-image1

The word “microaggression” has cropped up with increased frequency over the last year, to the point that now I see it almost daily! What does it mean? Webster’s says it has “no meaning.” It’s not a word. It doesn’t exist! Various blogs, papers, and online source provide a definition, but they’re not “official” dictionaries. And then, I found www.microaggressions.com. This ...

Like Obamacare? You’ll Love what New FCC Rules will do to the Internet

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai holding new Net Neutrality rules.

Like a cancerous growth spreading throughout an otherwise healthy body, government overreach, regulation, and control of every aspect of our free-market system continues to expand, infesting and damaging economic activity one organ, or industry, at a time. The Internet, that bastion of freedom and entrepreneurship, is about to become the government’s newest victim. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman, Tom Wheeler, ...

Strike 9! You’re out!

US-POLITICS-OBAMA

I believe in giving people many chances… as long as they are willing to work at correcting it. I never fired anyone for making mistakes at work, as long as I knew we had properly instructed them in their duties, that they were working at making it better, and that the mistake, though possibly costing the company money, was an ...
