Context And Perspective: Swine Flu & Afghanistan

The news media lives off exaggeration and hype. They continuously apply their ignorance on all things scientific to create searing headlines to generate business and money. They should understand that this irresponsible behavior of yelling ‘fire’ when there is barely any smoke is one of the many things that have turned Americans off to their […]

Ares I-X is the initial test launch of the new launch vehicle for the Orion 6 person capsule which is slated to replace our aging Shuttle fleet (sometime in 2015). Ares […]

New Threat For Islamo Fascists

You can always tell who the enemy is of the Islamo Fascists – they bomb their enemy’s innocent citizens into oblivion (they could never wage an up front war as honorable warriors). From Iraq this week we learned who and what is the current greatest threat to Islamo Fascism: As the floodwater from broken water […]

Humans Are Meatware

Being a systems engineer I think in terms of Hardware and Software, and the often forgotten Meatware – the human operator. Its a bit of a sick engineer joke (not meant to disparage), but I never claimed to be a guiding beacon of morality. Anyway, I bring this history up as a way to introduce […]

Fly By 10_26_09

Sorry for the light posting, having to take care of business issues, thanks to the fact Congress has yet to pass this year’s budget. You would think with wide margins in both houses of congress and the presidency the Democrats could get their work done on time. Anyway, some interesting reading. Rasmussen now shows the […]

What’s Good For The Goose …

Published by under All General Discussions

This interesting idea came through my email today: Dr. Mr. Obama, Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, I am required to pass a […]

Government Taking Over The News Media

Published by under All General Discussions

Sadly, the fall of the news media – which broke the liberal hold on communication here in the US and allowed for more main stream news sources like Fox – has also opened up the opportunity for a Goebbels like take over by the government and its allies. The recent calls to ‘save’ journalists from […]

The Obama Slide Continuing

I am sure team Obama and his cronies will think of something to run through the news media (like another Nobel Prize) to try and lift Obama’s sagging support, but I think they are coming to the end of their bag of tricks. Its still the economy, stupid. As Ace and Ed Morrissey note, Obama […]
