The Coming Pentagon UFO Report

Shortly, the United States government, particularly the Pentagon, will be releasing a much anticipated report on UFOs. As part of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, a report on what the heck has been going on with all these UFO reports must be presented to Congress some time this month. Coverage has been… Continue reading The Coming Pentagon UFO Report

Avoiding Taxes is Fun for Both Rich and Poor

So rich Americans like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk don’t pay much in income tax. The gist of the issue as reported by ProPublica reads, “(Regarding IRS data on the matter), it demolishes the cornerstone myth of the American tax system: that everyone pays their fair share and the richest Americans pay the most. The… Continue reading Avoiding Taxes is Fun for Both Rich and Poor

The Return of the Steady

Miss me? Yeah, I’ve been away a bit. Partially intentional and partially by simply tiring of the circus that has become American politics. The era of Trump has turned the Republican Party into a party of zero ideas and a cult of personality and worse, the Democrats into raging weirdos also working with fun-time personalities… Continue reading The Return of the Steady

The Face of Privacy in an Online World

With social media reigning supreme, taking in the majority of Internet traffic next to Netflix, I’ve been wondering if these young innovators ever saw their creations becoming what they are today. Do you think Jack Dorsey ever saw Twitter being used as the preferred method of a United States President’s direct communication tool? Or Mark… Continue reading The Face of Privacy in an Online World

Well Regulated – Reloaded

I grow tired of writing about guns in America. And I only seem to have to do it after a tragedy where someone is harmed through an action where a gun was used. Considering how often this actually happens, I’m surprised I get to write about anything else at all. In America, every day, more… Continue reading Well Regulated – Reloaded

Republicans Cannot Complain if…

A list of things Democrats can now do that Republicans cannot complain about: Democrats can spend as freely as they want. Under the Trump Administration, federal spending bloated more than under Obama. There is no such thing as fiscal conservative. Democrats can invade any country they want. The Bush Administration put a permanent foothold in… Continue reading Republicans Cannot Complain if…

Thoughts after first presidential debate

My first reaction to tonight’s debate was somewhat underwhelming in terms of substance. Biden made it to the end with only a handful of stammers. He was mostly clear and stayed mostly on message. President Trump exhibited an almost non-stop onslaught. It likely didn’t sway many nor lose current supporters. President Trump was more interruptive,… Continue reading Thoughts after first presidential debate

Reflection on Losing Ginsburg

America lost an important member of the family last night. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg succumbed to complications of cancer and passed away yesterday. And we should be thankful for the value she played in our lives and her contribution to American history. Her work on the Supreme Court has been groundbreaking and led… Continue reading Reflection on Losing Ginsburg

Resolution to Change the Locks

But Eric, you’re more in line and in agreement with the Republican Party and conservatives than the Democrats, so why is most of your energy these days put towards the demolition of the Republican Party and conservatives? Why all the mockery? Good question, glad you asked. Let me answer it the long way. You have… Continue reading Resolution to Change the Locks

SOTU Drinking Game 2020

The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's next to final address to the nation unless he wins another term later this year. A tabulation of all television "news" broadcasts in the final two months of 2019 shows 93% of all stories about President Donald Trump and his administration were negative… Continue reading SOTU Drinking Game 2020

This is What You Want, This is What You Get

I said I’d be focusing less on the federal government and more on local solutions but, wait, I’m gonna get back to that in just a minute. First, I feel the three ring circus in Washington needs to be called out for what it is. Regardless of what side you fall on or maybe you’ve… Continue reading This is What You Want, This is What You Get

A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

Immigration has always been an issue in the Americas, not just North America. But all the Americas. Starting several thousand years ago, homo-sapiens crossed the Siberian land bridge, entered what is now Alaska, and over several generations, made their way all the way down to what is now Argentina and Chile. We’re something of a… Continue reading A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

SOTU Drinking Game 2019

The State of the Union is tonight, delayed one week from the partial government shutdown where no one really felt its effects, but the nightly news could not get enough of it. This will be President Trump's second address to the nation. A tabulation of all television "news" broadcasts of 2018 shows (just like 2017)… Continue reading SOTU Drinking Game 2019

An Acceptable Gridlock

My beloved Libertarian Party didn’t do as well as I hoped this 2018 mid-term. And I’m part of the problem. For the first time in over twenty-years, I did not vote straight Libertarian. This time, I voted a mix of Libertarian and Democrat. I used to vote Republican if no Libertarian was on the ballot.… Continue reading An Acceptable Gridlock

American Homage

On August 23, 2018, someone on Twitter reminded everyone William Wallace was executed that same day in 1305 in the most horrible fashion. He was castrated, disemboweled and innards burned in front of him. He was hanged and finally beheaded. This occurred because of his failure to submit to the King of England. He chose… Continue reading American Homage
