Seasteading

A story on Drudge is where I first heard of the term, which is the concept of living in a floating self-contained city. The non-profit group, Seasteading Intitute, based in San Francisco has been floating (forgive the pun) the idea since their formation in 2008. Funded by some sort of virtual currency they have gotten the blessing of the French Polynesia to use a portion of their coastal area to test and build the first floating island city. People since the dawn of man have been dreaming of such a utopia… seems now that we have an over abundance of billionaires who lean to the far left and have swallowed the climate change pill a serious attempt at creating just…

WTF Were These People Thinking

Canadian Joshua Boyle, his wife Caitlan Colemen and their three children were released by the Taliban in Afghanistan after being held in captivity for five years. In total the couple had four children, all born while in captivity. Boyle making the claim that one of the children was killed by their captors and that his wife on one occasion was raped by their guards… something the Taliban are quickly denying. Why does this whole story smell rotten to me? The wife was pregnant when they were taken captive so I can give them a pass for having one child born in captivity, but to reproduce another three times during the course of 5 years? Supposedly they were kept in a…

Media Deception

I hate the media and their continued efforts to show President Trump in a bad light. We’re being threatened by this nut case in North Korea. Several countries (including those that we aren’t all that friendly with) have joined together in initiating new strong sanctions against the rouge regime, which has Kim Jong Unl lashing out toward the United States with what we all hope are idle threats. However when President Trump comments: “He (Kim Jong Un) has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before” the media conveniently leaves off the part that explains that he is responding to a…

Paris Accord

President Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord and the liberal Trump haters are loosing their minds. They want us to believe that it’s all about the environment. If they were listening to the President speak yesterday when he made the announcement that he was pulling us out of the agreement then they choose to ignore every thing he said. President Trump’s decision isn’t because he doesn’t care about the environment, which he reiterated several times during his announcement; it was made because he’s putting a stop to the rest of the world using us for a door mat. The agreement is hugely lopsided against the United States both in regulations and monetary concerns. If…

Mark Zuckerberg Preaching Utopia

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, during his Harvard Commencement Speech said; “Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract. We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” Personally I think it’s dangerous to be filling our graduate’s minds with the idea that the government should just give everyone a basic living wage… especially when there is nothing expected of them in return. We’re raising a generation of lazy uninspired idealistic morons who think…

In Need of Target Practice

French police guarding the Louvre museum in Paris were attacked by a machete wielding Islamic Terrorist and was shot 5 times. The first thing that came to my mind when I heard this story was… damn, can’t the French police shoot better than that? This guy should be dead right now. So now I can imagine that they will nurse this maniac’s wounds and then give him room and board for the rest of his life. What a waste of money.

Muslim Ban… What Ban?

I find it amazing how far the Trump objectors will go to find something to bitch about. Trump hasn’t issued a blanket ban on Muslims coming into this country… he’s issued an executive order that dictates that our customs agents use the existing laws to actually do the job they are supposed to do, which is scrutinize and question certain individuals attempting to enter this country from countries known to harbor and promote terrorist activities. Obama was satisfied to just let anyone enter this country. We now have a President with the balls to actually believe that we should question people trying to enter the country before we just let them loose on American soil. The first day of the…

Weapons of Mass Destruction

The terrorist attach in Nice, France is prof positive that the terrorists don’t need bombs or guns to inflict mass carnage in the name of their religion… 84 innocent dead people in an instant when one radical Muslim drives a semi-tractor trailer through and over the crowd that had gathered to enjoy the fireworks as a part of a National Holiday celebration. The question now is… do our liberal mouthpieces in this country use their logic on this case and start a movement to blame the truck for the death toll and possibly set in motion the idea that we should limit the size of trucks that can be manufactured so we can ward off a similar attach here in…

Papal Visit with Congress

So the Pope addressed a joint session of Congress today and as expected brought up the issue of immigration… especially how the United States should have compassion and leniency towards the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants coming into this country every year from Mexico and Latin America. He also touched on the idea that with all of the worlds great resources and wealth that there is no excuse for anyone on planet Earth to be homeless. That’s where it gets interesting to me… that very few people are willing to call the man out as a hypocrite. He resides over what is called Vatican City, which is a country all on its own and has the strictest immigration and citizenship…

Obama’s Iran Deal

Wow! President Obama just finished giving his pep talk on this deal with Iran. Could he sound any more pathetically desperate? I don’t think so. Obama is so delusional on so many planes I don’t know where to start. Obama thinks that the worse case scenario under this agreement is that we’ll be in the same place with Iran ten years from now. I’m not sure why he seems to be in the minority that understands that in another ten years Iran is going to have a nuclear bomb and with the ability to purchase conventional arms they’ll also have the capability to launch a long distance attack. That’s if Iran doesn’t acquire a nuke and uses it before then.…
