something unnatural about nature?

Are these record breaking weather events just flukes of nature? If you are honestly curious, open your mind and give this a look. Since YouTube has developed a bad habit of deleting things that displease our masters, I saved and uploaded a copy here. Us the one below if the one above does not work.

arguing

Much of our society has been dumbed down below the level where they can have a friendly, civil, animated discussion with someone holding significantly different views from their own. Quite intelligent people with wonderful potential cannot speak to me because I don’t share their faith in new cloud forms, benevolent vaccines, trustworthy big government and so forth. What is it? What happened to the positive art of arguing? Worse, how did fear of divergent views become normal? Debate has a long history in advanced societies. Participants work to craft compelling explanations for their points of view. Audiences as well as the debaters have their views challenged; have to work through the logic and evidence supporting their convictions. These are good […]

atop the pyramid

A widely-shared report from The Institute For Policy Studies documents the ridiculous concentration of wealth today. That the wealth pyramid is morphing into an extremely tall, narrow tower atop a sea of impoverished dependents is the culmination of an intricate set of plans and actions by those who would rule the world. That, and widespread apathy amongst the peasant class. As long as ruthless can be disguised as cleverness and extreme wealth bestows honor, they will continue their cancerous growth on the bodies of their hosts. It will end when the peasants storm the tower.   Billionaire Bonanza 2017 The Forbes 400 and the Rest of Us November 8, 2017 | Chuck Collins, Josh Hoxie Over recent decades, an incredibly […]

metric Montana draftsman

Earlier this year I decided to give go at using metric measurements. That system has many advantages facilitating gauging and related calculations. For target ranging through optical scopes using mil-dots, plus calculating hold-offs and hold-overs, it is far more fluid than the MOA, foot, inch, yard system. Thus I have lived in a mixed-system world for the last six months. Setting up my new studio, radio shack, reloading, hobby area requires quite a bit of design, millwork and cabinetry … all needing to be done before I could have a nice mechanical drawing station set up. I am incredibly happy with the cheesy little 30-dollar “interim” drawing board I bought to draw plans for my drawing table and more. I […]

putting fake news outlets in charge of censorship

The German parliament has voted to fine social media networks up to €50 million ($56 million) if they fail to remove hateful content or fake news. The networks will be given 24 hours to block or delete any inappropriate content. Around the same time the German government acted, Facebook, Google (YouTube), Twitter and others created and staffed departments to “combat fake news”. Their words are ironic in that fake news is all they will allow. The Internet has been killing their propaganda and terrorism efforts. They intend to FIX that. In Germany, USofA and anywhere else governments strive for control, the conflict is always free speech and the right to defend it, the cornerstones of life, liberty and the pursuit […]

scat

Yesterday I found a carcass just outside our fenced yard. Our neighborhood has large populations of deer, turkeys, lions and bears. The prior owners of our house scooted quickly back inside when the little old lady stepped into the breezeway to face a bear and her cub. I added a six-foot chain link fence to encourage predators to stay out of our yard, but I know it is only a deterrent. A mountain lion could jump that with a deer in its mouth. My carcass find yesterday was a reminder. Later in the day I found this big poop. I admit I don’t know scat. But this one seems quite large … larger than a mountain lion. Perhaps a […]

I fought for ________

I enlisted in the US Air Force to _________ avoid being drafted into the Army, sent to Vietnam and kill complete strangers with whom I had no quarrel, or even any knowledge of. I thought then, and still believe today participating in war at that level would have planted some demons in my mind. Today there is no draft snagging up young men shortly after their 19th birthday. Young folks today have to be inspired other ways to join the USofA Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy. Widespread unemployment that may run around 40% in that demographic certainly helps. The military-industrial-complex sucks over 50% of the annual government spending with one result being a whole lot less money for a […]

school is out forever

A few days ago I published the video of my 2006 gubernatorial debate, primarily because in it I discussed my proposal to allow tax deductions for scholarships to schools chosen by parents and students. For me that plan would be a huge step in the right direction treating growing, exploring, individuals as that, rather than cogs to be forged by a government monolith. That article and debate video are here: 2006 Idaho governor candidate debate Today my FEE newsletter arived with two links to great articles on education.
