POLITICAL: Don’t vote; is just encourages them?

Is there a case to be made for voting? Indeed there is, if one believes that social order is a quality that can be instilled, by violence and other coercive means, by political authorities. I do not accept this proposition. To the contrary, I believe that social order is the product of unseen, spontaneous influences of which most of us are not consciously aware. The study of economics helped me to understand how we respond, marginally, to fluctuations that are continuously generated by one another’s self-seeking pursuits. I also came to understand that politics – like a rock thrown through a spider’s web – disrupts these informal processes as well as the existing patterns of interconnectedness upon which any social order depends.

IPAD: Island Dictatorship or Bridge Appliance

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder? IPAD apps have to come from Apple. Without the cloud, it’s really limited. A grand for the pad, capital cost. 250$/year for the 3G, with a bandwidth cap. So far it’s a very small expensive island. We’ll see if it can bridge anywhere.

It has to have a huge value equation if it’s just an island; a bridge can open new worlds.

Jury’s still out imho.

MYFOXNY.COM – Auditors say the New Jersey Turnpike Authority wasted $43 million on unneeded perks and bonuses. In one case, an employee with a base salary of $73,469 earned $321,985 when all payouts and bonuses were included.

No one should ever have a salary greater than the President or the Governor.

In this case, it’s fraud. If I was the executive or the auditor, I’d want to see time sheets. Did this person ever get sick? It’s at best abuse. Worst, fraud!

Shameful!
