Democrats have set themselves a major ‘climate trap’

Friday, June 14, 2019

Bearing real costs for the sake of the climate will always be a sucker’s game for any one country so long as there isn’t a global regime mandating emission reductions (and, thankfully, there isn’t anything remotely like the political will for such a regime). It was supposed to be a disaster when Trump pulled out of the Paris accords, but G-20 countries haven’t been on pace to meet their goals regardless.

As a skeptic, I’m not surprised.

City Completes Process of Installing Paul Robeson Blvd. Signs | TAPinto

Thursday, June 13, 2019

Residents, business owners and leaders of houses of worship on the street are encouraged to begin the process of changing their addresses.

As of June 1, they will have up to 18 months to inform all agencies and businesses that the address on file and let them know of the change.

All addresses on the street will see a change in the street name, but the numerical part of the address will stay the same. For example, 1 Commercial Ave. will now be 1 Paul Robeson Blvd.

The signs are the cheap part of this change.

I’m imagining all the costs, inconveniences, and errors that imposed on “We, The Sheeple” to do this.  It’s a “tax” on living.

I’m not disputing that it could or should be done.  I am objecting to the costs being imposed by the Gooferment on others.

Gooferment is force and here is just one tiny example of it.

Argh!

Is this a sign of things to come?

Yes, streaming works well with fiber optic to the home, but who has that?

And certainly no one is investing in that.  Google tried and seems to have failed.

Maybe there is a place for municipal or “community” broadband?  After all that’s how cable TV got started!

The Day the Music Burned

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The fire made news around the world, and the destruction of the video vault featured prominently in the coverage. But nearly all news outlets characterized the vault fire as a close call, in which worst cases were averted. The New York Times reported that “a vault full of video and television images” had burned up, but added that “in no case was the destroyed material the only copy of a work,” a claim attributed to Universal Studios officials. Subsequent articles focused on the fire’s impact on film festivals, which relied on prints from Universal’s library. But journalists moved on from the story, and there has never been a full accounting of film and video losses in the fire.

Letters to the Editor

Monday, June 10, 2019

I’m 65 so it doesn’t affect me directly but I find this trend upsetting. I remember when 18 year olds gained the right to vote in 1971. at that time the age to make many decisions for oneself was lowered from age 21 to 18. Apparently they forgot how to stand up for themselves since then.

They have become a bunch of sheep, doing what the media tells them, standing up to spread socialism at the command of their masters. “If God didn’t want them sheared, He would not have made them sheep.”

Sometimes it looks as if the youth of America are being bamboozled into adopting an ovine state. The problem is that a libertarian society is meant for adults who are not domestic sheep and these youngster are not learning to be either wild or adults.

If you’re old enough to sign up for the military, then you’re old enough to make decisions about smoking, drinking, drugs, etc. etc.
