How Many Lives Could We Save With Airplane Search Money?

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Especially the money being spent to search the ocean.

Is The Duck Dynasty Issue Really “Free Speech”

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

If so his defenders should not abandon him if he said slavery or the holocaust was a good thing or that collateral danger toward Muslim children when drones strike, should not concern us. But the fact that most would change their tune if he said that proves that the part of his support derives from [...]

Secret Service Should Be In Big Trouble

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

How could they not take it upon themselves not to have independently vetted the sign language guy in South Africa? I always assume that the people I’m dealing with are incompetent, Even when lives are not at stake.

Republicans Getting Whipsawed

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Perhaps this will teach politicians not to pretend to oppose something that they are actually in favor of just because it was proposed by a member of the other party. First they asked the President to go to Congress before bombing because they thought he wouldn’t do that, even though they actually tended to agree [...]

Close “No” Vote In Congress Along with Syrian “Denial” Probable Best Result

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Even though Syria is lying when they said they didn’t do it, that lie is important. Because it implies that they admit that the use of chemical weapons is wrong.

Why Not Rescind Our Anti Assasination Law?

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Even if he is well protected that’s [...]

The Trayvon Martin Law

Although I agree with the verdict I think that George Zimmerman was probably guilty of a behavior that I don’t think is illegal but should be. Namely pushing a person into possibly attacking you when only you know that you have a lethal weapon (or even possibly professionally trained fists) that can kill under the [...]

Have Some Tricks Up My Sleave For WSOP

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Hopefully in six weeks I will be able to claim that they worked well. With so many good new players studying standard strategy and counterstrategy, I’m thinking that the best way to thwart them is to make some plays that, while theoretically a little suboptimum, are so different from what they are used to that [...]

Why Did They Divulge The Bombers Reaction?

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Now we all know that one of the main reasons the authorities quickly identified them is that they reacted abnormally to the blast. I guess they wanted to show how smart they are. Even if it meant that future terrorists will now certainly not make that same mistake.

Obama’s Taxes, Charity, etc.

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Why do people make a big deal about any of it? It’s totally insignificant to any president or ex president. Money will never be an issue in any way shape or form.
