A Horrible Way to Be Right
By RANDAL O’TOOLE

*** begin quote ***

No matter what speed, intercity passenger trains are obsolete and have been at least since the advent of jet airliner service. Even after hundreds of millions spent on improvements, this particular train would have been slower than driving from Seattle to Portland, but even the fastest high-speed trains are slower than flying.

*** end quote ***

I really am tired of politicians and bureaucrats deciding how to waste Taxpayer money on feel good projects!

At some point in time, “We, The Sheeple” need to say “enuf’s enuf”.

There’s no need for these boondoggles and at least 6 people paid the ultimate price for this stupidity.

Argh!

Additionally, the man confirmed that the FBI was “erasing” evidence from peoples phones and even pointed out that he thinks Stephen Paddock is likely a patsy.

So if there’s nothing to hide, why are the phones being erased?

INTERESTING: Peak NFL?

Have We Reached Peak NFL?
December 15, 2017

*** begin quote ***

To summarize:

1. The NFL has saturated the potential audience to the point of exhaustion.

2. The potential audience is shrinking as student-loan-burdened Millennials have collectively little interest in spending the money or time required to be a rabid fan of pro football.

3. The cost of attending an NFL game is increasingly out of reach of the bottom 95% of households.

4. TV viewership is declining across the entire demographic spectrum.

5. The wages/income of the vast majority of the TV audience has stagnated, and 95% of the populace has less disposable income than a generation ago.

6. The top 5% with the majority of the disposable income are not big pro sports fans, mostly due to the many demands on their time and the diversity of other pursuits available to them.

How will the owners and managers of the multi-billion-dollar NFL empire handle the league’s decline phase? Managing the decline phase is less fun than reveling in the expansion phase. 

*** end quote ***

Was it the interjection of politics or perhaps finding out that the taxpayers were paying for the NFL’s patriotism?

Perhaps, it’s just its time has past.

The FBI lost fingerprints taken from the rifle agents found in the Texas School Book Depository after the president was assassinated in Dallas, new files have revealed.

At the time of the investigation in 1963, agents and outside experts concluded that a palm print taken from the barrel off the rifle belonged to Lee Harvey Oswald.  

But 15 years later in July 1978, the agency revealed that the fingerprints had gone missing in their vast archives.

Sorry but the FBI is either corrupt or complicit.

Either way time for it to go.

Argh!

TECHNOLOGY: ICOs are probably not deserving of SEC regulation; caveat emptor

The ICO regulators are here, and they’re carrying big sticks.

“Coins or other digital assets issued on a blockchain may be securities under the federal securities laws… tokens were securities as defined by Section 2(a)(1) of the Securities Act because they were investment contracts … An investment contract is an investment of money in a common enterprise with a reasonable expectation of profits to be derived from the entrepreneurial or managerial efforts of others.”

*** end quote ***

Laissez-faire is an economic system in which transactions between private parties are free from intrusive government restrictions, tariffs, and subsidies, with only enough regulations to protect property rights.

We don’t need the Gooferment to “protect” us.

Their only interest is to protect their established interests.

Crypto-currencies do represent a huge threat to the fiat currencies that enable the Federal Reserve System — —  The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians. — — to fund the welfare / warfare state.

INSPIRATIONAL: Why we need “our” “female Human Resources”

The quiet hero of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ (Hint: It’s NOT Jimmy Stewart)
By Paul J. Batura| Fox News

*** begin quote ***

As we approach the 71st anniversary of Frank Capra’s perennial Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life,” I think it’s time to reexamine the film’s heroes. The result might surprise you.

As a child, I assumed the hero was Jimmy Stewart’s wholesome hometown character, George Bailey. The American Film Institute agreed, listing George as the ninth greatest screen hero of all time. After all, the whole point of the movie is to show us what life in Bedford Falls would be like without George.

*** end quote ***

Here’s a lesson about why we need “our” “female Human Resources”. (And, we should thank all the countries of the world who keep “their” females barefoot, pregnant, and uneducated.)

While my personal “Christmas hero” is pre-transformation old Ebenezer — who gets a bum rap imho, I can certainly make room for a heroine as #2.
