Stupid, Smart, and I'm More Important

It is amazing that so many people make no effort to correct the ills of the planet. Everyone seems to agree that we've inherited a planet that has the resources to feed, cloth and shelter everyone. Of course there are a few that disagree but when pinned to the post their argument falls apart.  Human beings have the brains to figure out how to do most anything. Our nature leads us to avoid certain important puzzles and concentrate on the trivial. With our "Free Will" it seems mankind can't even agree on the structure and organization of a benevolent government. Are we actually allowing our pride, selfishness, and aggressive attitudes  to  cause us to self destruct? We are you know. Look around and consider our not so brilliant history. 

Millions have died for lack of fresh water, lack of food, lack of medication, and stupidity. Millions more have killed other millions for land, wealth, women, and for no other reason at all. As we speak there is a idiotic war going on between poverty and plenty.  They call it an outlaw war between religions. Nonsense. And there will be no winner, only losers. Does that strike you as smart? 

There are brilliant scientists around the world in all scholastic disciplines, physics, chemistry, medicine, biology, engineering, and on and on. Certainly they could be gathered to contribute towards feeding their poor neighbors. In fact, it is entirely possible, even probable, that they could relieve the hunger problem and save people. The more people saved will ultimately produce more answers. You might say that this would be a self sustaining program.  Or would you rather these scientists learn to build bigger bombs?

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 


For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…

Donald (I am not a clown) Trump

I'm eighty years old. Several Presidents have come and gone. Some good. Some not so good.come and go. A few were excellent executives and a few were not. 

Now, out of the blue, comes Donald Trump. The Democrats cheer and the Republicans go back ask themselves 'what just happened'? 

The Democrats watch their candidate turn to dust. Dishonesty and corruption laid her to rest. Bye bye Hillary.

America has endured eight long years of the radical, liberal and  progressive politicians. Our sleepy nation finally agreed that they were attempting to destroy America. Our character, traditions, Constitutional government and international stature were sliding faster and faster toward big government socialism. The foundation of our freedoms that we worked so hard to establish were being undermined before our eyes. 

Our recent President Obama gave us eight years of faulty direction. He trashed the government with misguided appointments that steered America onto the ultra-liberal shoals.
