    It's a natural element, and one of the basic building blocks of life on Earth.And no, you can't "stop" carbon emissions without exterminating every animal on Earth.Redefining clean, natural air as "pollution" is exactly what Orwell warned us about:Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by eactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of[...]

    Tired Of Being The Villain

    In modern Hollywood movies, I'm almost always the villain. Straight, white, traditionalist, conservative, male = bad. I realized recently that this is the reason I almost never watch movies or TV, even comedies. I've gotten tired of being the bad guy.Note: Good friend Renee Aste blogs about something similar frequently.Two nights ago, I watched Meet the Fokkers. The whole thing. It had to be one of the worst movies I've seen in years. The characters were cardboard cutouts, the jokes were telegraphed miles in advance and they were essentially the same joke over and over and over again. The straight, white, traditionalist, conservative male was a reactionary jerk who needed to be evangelized into the One, True Faith of[...]

Not quite as dramatic in geography or colorful paint on the houses, but the similarity still leaped out at me.Enjoy.    I still haven't pulled out my Nikon artillery piece yet. I will starting today and see if I can get some comparison shots. My Samsung Galaxy S5 has superior resolution, but it can't touch the Nikon's optics.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

    Mayor Faulconer appears to have played a weak hand badly with regards to negotiations with the Chargers, if his goal was to keep the Chargers in San Diego.  Jeffrey Siniard has been covering the situation at www.boltsfromtheblue.com:Mistakes made by the City of San Diego:1. Mayor Faulconer and his staff got in over their heads the moment they didn't realize how much pressure the Chargers were under to make a deal, and assumed it was primarily an attempt by the Chargers to manufacture leverage.2. A better understanding of the situation by Falconer and his staff could have led to an earlier City/County partnership, earlier hiring of negotiating experts, who then could've worked with CSAG to produce a polished offer in[...]

    In order to to not offend Muslims, the President has taken pains to try to distance himself from the idea that we are fighting a religious war, so as not to offend Muslim allies.  This is understandable, but shows a lack of understanding of the true nature of the problem.  His administration has taken to saying silly things such as ISIS is not truly Islamic.  This could not be further from the truth, ISIS is nothing if not Islamic.  Their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is believed to have a doctorate in Islamic studies and certainly speaks with the rhetorical flourishes characteristic of a learned Muslim scholar.  Graeme Wood's excellent article in the Atlantic says this about ISIS' Islamic[...]

    GREECE AND THE PROBLEM WITH DEMOCRACY

    As any properly educated school child knows, democracy began in ancient Greece. In Athens, specifically; from whence it spread throughout the Greek world. It is therefore particularly ironic and yet historically appropriate that the Geeks show us the inherent problem with democracy.Which problem is both democracy's greatest strength and its Achilles heal: that everyone gets a vote.The governing principles in democracy is that the citizens govern themselves, voting on the issues of the day and thereby guiding the lives and deciding their own future. All of which sound very good in principle. However, allowing every citizen equal say in the affairs of state is not without consequences.Human beings, while perhaps created equal,[...]

    In defiance of the wishes of the Obama Administration, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Saeed el-Sisiseems prepared to follow in the footsteps of Rameses the Great.Like that ancient warrior-Pharaoh, el-Sisi is preparing to smite the Libyans; or at least the DAESH (ISIS) elements controlling parts of Libya.Egyptian land and naval forces seem to be preparing to strike intoLibya; their target likely DAESH forces in eastern Libya; and atDerna (pop: 100,000), which ISIS has made its provincial capital. In response, DAESH is reportedly rushing fighters from as far away as Iraq to counter any Egyptian moves.It is in Libya that DAESH has been carrying out the gruesome seaside beheadings of Christians seen over the last months.Such[...]

    Every once in a while a piece of legislation is introduced here in California that just completely makes me flip my lid. Now it has happened again. The piece of legislation that is creating more Nanny State and less Manifest Destiny is SB 8 offered by Bob Hertzberg of CA Senate District 18. This bill would tax services offered by small businesses. So just think, the myriad of Vaping and Hooka stores that have cropped in my neighborhood would now have to tax your experience. The small nail shop owner, the hairdresser you have been going to since you were in college, all of these services could potentially be taxed.The worst part of the bill is that Hertzberg actually believes this would enhance the states business[...]

     At the end of this legislative session in California Governor Brown vetoed a few bills that, the legislature passed in Sacramento, which dealt with ethics. His reason was that he did not want to make the ethical practices the elected in Sacramento must follow to be made any more complex. Huh? Given that under his watch three separate Senators have been indicted on various federal and state charges ranging from voter fraud to gun running, how complicated are the current ethics rules?This gave me pause as to how complicated it must be already for these guys given their current legal troubles, so I went looking for the complex ethics one must follow if ever elected in our great state. Listed below are some of the ethical[...]

        Theres no denying that over the last few decades most all on-field rules changes made by the NFL have been exercises in increasing offense and scoring. This has created an arms race in a sense where the pendulum swings back and forth between the NFL offenses and NFL defenses whereby the offenses get aided by rules changes and the defenses counter with a combination of innovative schemes and superior athletes. To wit, for years, its been conventional wisdom that the best athletes in the world were in the NBA. Now days, we would add NFL defensive backs and possibly outside linebackers/rush ends into that mix (you dont think dudes like Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and J.J. Watt can ball a little?).But[...]

It is impressive and exciting to see a real improvement aimed at desktop productivity.My motivation for reviewing Windows 10 on one of my Virtual Machine (VM) servers is to understand the future of Microsoft Windows Apps. Out of the gate, Windows 10 addresses my primary concerns. Apps tiles are now wonderfully integrated into the classic Windows Start button.    The future of Windows apps looks bright. This new apps interface is terrific and a huge improvement over Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. Windows apps now use their inherent responsive design model to resize throughout the desktop environment.The Windows 8 style[...]

      Before beginning this timeline there are two alarming facts to keep in mind.This current enterovirus strain appears more severe than previous strains.If diseases were spread to American children through the Obama Administration's unilateral amnesty and relocation programs, enterovirus is just one of many pathogens in the exposure.Per USA Today:A dozen Colorado children have been diagnosed with polio-like paralysis, Wolk said. Although all of the children had a respiratory virus before muscle weakness set in, only four tested positive for enterovirus D68, he said. Most have gone home and are in rehabilitation."We're optimistic that a number of them, if not the majority, will gain some functionality back," Wolk said.This[...]
