Ruining the Movies One Text at a Time

Texting in Movies Light in Face

It must have been the result of what Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr derisively terms a “nationwide search.” AMC Theatres was looking for a new CEO and it hired Adam Aron. He’s not on the job three months before Aron unveils a new marketing strategy: Attracting 22–year–olds by driving off everyone aged 35 and over. In an interview with Variety, ...

Now Humans Are Just Along for the Ride

Google self driving car lucky button

I have seen humanity’s future and it’s cargo. Not shipping cargo, but being cargo. One cannot pick up the newspaper without discovering a new area of transportation where human control will soon be superfluous. I don’t know whether to blame the auto–pilot or Roomba. So much of flying today takes place while the aircraft is on auto that some safety ...

When you’re so outta touch with your voting base, this happens…

Eagle God Bless America

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has listened to us average voters and is singing our tune. Whether he’s sincere, and possibly as frustrated as Washington, DC as the rest of us, remains to be seen. In the meantime, the RNC and GOP Establishment continue to stand around scratching their heads wondering how they’ve lost control. It’s really not ...

You can trust us, we’re the government!

ObamaLies

At this point, it’s nothing but distractions. Trump is immoral, Rubio sold his home to a lobbyist, and Cruz is not a citizen. They’ve got us chasing our tails like a cat chases a red laser dot on the wall! Our government keeps telling us they have our best interests at heart, can do what’s best for us, and can ...

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 ...

Excalibur N5 test video

Raytheon’s new Excalibur N5 projectile was fired from a 5-inch naval gun during a flight test at Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona. The new technology effectively triples the range of the Navy’s 5″ naval guns.

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 ...

Robot Cars: The Return of the Sunday Driver

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 ...

Mr. President, PLEASE Return from OZ!

wizard-obama-oz

Mr. President, PLEASE Return from OZ, or Mars, or wherever your mind is currently at. Really successful people surround themselves with people of knowledge. They don’t do it to spend hordes of money. They do it to have the best information from those who have expertise so they have a greater chance of being successful. Mr. Obama loves to convene ...

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 ...
