Debate Night Reflections

img_1669_2

Have been watching some of the reviews of the debate. None were like my simple observation. So I would like to add a couple other points before my reflections. I thought it was significant that Donald said he would not use first strike of nuclear weapons. The other point was Donald agreed with with Hillary on a number of occasions.

Full disclosure, I listened to or watched CNN, MSNBC, FOX, NPR, WMUR, WSJ, Drudge, Facebook for fifteen minutes or more. Usually most of of these news sources repeat themselves after fifteen minutes or so. The majority of news sources said Secretary Clinton won the debate. Donald had flubbed on a number issues, from sniffling to being a misogynist. Essentially Trump’s baggage was gone through with a fine tooth comb. Hillary’s, rather substantial baggage, was ignored.

So now I understand her smugness, she managed to set the agenda for the debate. Everything from the questions to the fact checking. No fact checking on the National Debt, Donald’s main point. No mention of racism, Hillary’s significant point.

I watched the entire event, the people in the photo above can attest to that. No mention of Globalism, what I believe is Hillary’s agenda. How is this better for us than Nationalism? Nationalism is what Donald is trying to sell us, and it does seem to set the agenda, until today. Now Hillary is the winner. So many issues have been skipped. The media has set the agenda. Trump will go the way of Bernie. We can now anoint the Queen. However I have one more question that is important to me, how can Hillary justify using paid operatives to attack fellow Americans? Both NPR and Drudge report Hillary uses paid operatives to attack Trump supporters. Two opposite ends of the media spectrum agree on one thing. I have personally experienced paid attacks. I commented in the WSJ and Hillary’s paid operative said they want me institutionalized. For this and other reasons, my opinion is Hillary is the candidate of hate.

That is why I believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton is totally unqualified to be President. I raise my glass to Donald J Trump for taking her on.

By the way, that is me in the Trump shirt.

Debate Night

In a few hours will be the first Trump Clinton presidential debate! I am not a huge fan of politics, however I enjoy politics better than football or basketball. So I plan on watching the debate with like minded people.

Of course I believe the debate will benefit Trump. Simply because the more people that see him, there will be the more people that like him. He has that effect. The bigger the audience the better for Donald. Most people’s opinions of Donald Trump have been shaped by paid negative advertising or media bias. That is what happens when you run for president in this day and age. To see him will show the bias for what it is.

So let it begin, may the best man, or woman win.

The Wind In The Willows

Oh so many years ago, on a local stage, I played “Ratty” in a play be Kenneth Grahame. The play was “The Wind In The Willows”. Ratty was a river rat that liked messing about with boats. Something that could describe me, though I like messing about with anything mechanical.

Now the first time I saw Donald J Trump in a Presidential Debate, I immediately thought, It’s Mr Toad! Now I mean that in a good way. Ratty and Mr Toad are friends, sure there is some excitement along the way. But it all ends well. So there, I tell you who Donald Trump reminds me of. Mr Toad.

As for Hillary, for years I have considered her an impeccable dresser. Just like John Gotti. The boss of bosses. Also like John Gotti, Hillary was made of Teflon. Nothing bad sticks to her. I did see certain similarities between the two.

So we have a fictional character and a bad ass. Well till recently that is. With the collapse of Hillary on September 11th, I now consider her to be Humpty Dumpty.

Thomas Jefferson

In a vastly over simplification of history, Thomas Jefferson was the first American president to fight war on Muslim nations. The Marine Corps were actually created to do the job.

The reason for the war was the Muslim enslavement and ransom of Americans. In fact ten percent or more of the national budget was used for paying such ransom to the Muslim pirates. The four Barbary nations were engaged in slavery and ransom of Americans, and Europeans. Enslavement of Americans was not to be taken lightly.

The envoys of the Barbary nations declared “It was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”. The first American response was theTreaty of Tripoli, which in 1797 had attempted to formalize the dues that America would pay for access to the Mediterranean, stated in its preamble that the United States had no quarrel with the Muslim religion and was in no sense a Christian country.

That did not work. Increasing demands from the Barbary nations eventually caused Jefferson to refuse to to pay tribute. The Barbary nations promptly declared war. America more or less succeeded in what is called the 1st Barbary war. In doing so we successfully opened up trade routes in the Mediterranean.

Skittles

My man Don Jr made a statistical comment about Skittles that made the national media. At first thought it reminded me of a earlier post that I made about M&M’s. Read my comment and think ill of me. There are certain similarities between the comments. Don Jr added a statistical probability that I had not included in my post. Now in most cases people will disagree about probabilities. So the probability opens up room for discussion.

Don Sr, has added some rather logical (in my opinion) comments in saying that he would employ the Israeli method of probability control. Now I am no expert in immigration control, and I may not even agree with the Israeli method, but this is an opening for discussion.

I do remember reading about some Syrian refugees that were seeking asylum in this country. They even had Republican support for their request. However their request was denied by the administration. The reason was they were Christian. The logic of the administration was that all religions should be allowed, otherwise none would be allowed.

I actually reviewed the statistical probability of Skittles, and I am glad to say that there is an excellent probability that there are no nuts in Skittles.

 

Tesla

Just want to say a few words about Tesla, the man, the car and Musk. Nicholas Tesla was a great inventor that changed the way everybody lives. He had a great and beneficial effect on society. Edison may have invented the light bulb, but Tesla invented the power grid. We may no longer use the Edison bulb, but we all use AC electricity.

Edison and Tesla lived in an era of great scientific achievement. With the exception of the computer, we have left that era. Sure we have evolution, cars are better than they were fifty years ago. Satellites are much better than they were fifty years ago. Computers are much much better than fifty years ago. But what revolutionary changes have we had in the last fifty years?

Recently the great scientific debates have been defined by consensus rather than empirical data. Unfortunately that is because of politics, and money.

Speaking of money, may I mention Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. They are bringing the space race back. Each is trying to build a better rocket than the other. Sure they may be trying to reinvent the wheel, but our government has failed to advance the scientific achievements of exploration. Be it space or otherwise. For whatever reason our government has given up on scientific exploration.

Unfortunately I have a political aversion to imported oil. I gotta give Elon Musk great credit for the Tesla car. As an homage to a great man and the possibility of a semi revolutionary change in transportation. Of course I want to take it a step further.

Electric personal aircraft. That is my vision of a scientific revolution. Of course I may be way off base. But that is my version of greatness.

Realization

Is it time for a change? Once I argued passionately, against conservative and liberal friends that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. I couldn’t understand why liberal and conservative agreed on such a preposterous idea.

However the realization that, for whatever the reason, we were to go to war. I argued once again that we would have to stay there for at least a generation. Like Germany, that was once was a mess. It would take a generation to forget the hatred. In fact I theorized that we could reduce troops in Germany.

Of course no one listened to me. Sadly the one’s I argued with are gone, so I can not say I told you so. In reality, history just plays itself out. I am just one of a hundred and thirty million votes. It is the voice of the vote that makes change, or expresses content with the status quo.

Funny how Co2 has fell off the radar this election season. I hardly hear it mentioned at all. However my vote has about as much effect on the outcome of the election as the amount of carbon added to the atmosphere this year.
