Are the Robots coming to get Republicans?

The robots are coming. Actually, they’re already here. Technology is now a net destroyer of the sorts of jobs that average people can do.

Remember when giant warehouses were filled with people like, well, like drivers of forklift trucks. Here’s a video clip of an Amazon warehouse. Watch the robots in action.

There’s hardly a human in sight. Those that are there are performing routine jobs that will be automated out of existence within five years or less. Continue reading “Are the Robots coming to get Republicans?”

Is “Islamic State” Practising an Aberrant Form of Islam? What would Muhammad Do?

It has become an article of faith among liberals and self-styled “progressives” that “Islamic State” is a perversion of Islam, that the “real” Islam is a “religion of peace”. When I call it an “article of faith” I mean that quite literally. They believe it, or purport to believe it, not merely in the absence of evidence but in the teeth of the evidence.

A perfect example of this self-righteous foolishness is the actor, Ben Afleck’s, attack on Sam Harris, the atheist author.

Was Antonin Scalia a Hypocrite?

The late Judge Antonin Scalia is something of an icon among conservatives. Is this affection justified or was he, in fact, a hypocrite?

Judging  by his dissenting opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case in which the Supreme Court ruled that same sex couples had a right to marry, the answer is an emphatic “yes”. He was indeed a hypocrite. Continue reading “Was Antonin Scalia a Hypocrite?”

The World nearly ended on 25 January 1995

How should this influence your choice of candidate?

Here’s what happened.

On 25 January 1995 a team of Norwegian and American scientists launched a Black Brant XII sounding rocket from the Andøya Space Center off the coast of Norway. Their aim was to study the Aurora Borealis. They didn’t know it at the time but they nearly triggered a holocaust that could have caused the end of human civilisation.

Islamic State Wants to Use Chemical Weapons Against U.S. (Intelligence Chief)

MUNICH—The Islamic State terror network would like to launch a chemical weapons attack against the U.S., the top U.S. intelligence official said Friday, in the latest warning about the disturbing goals emanating from the group’s base in Iraq and Syria.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, speaking at an international security conference in Germany, said the Islamic State had already used “industrial chemicals” as weapons, most notably mustard gas, multiple times in the Middle East against adversaries.

Sell High, Buy Low: How the Conspiracy makes Money from a Market Crash – Part 1

In my previous post, Did Osama bin Laden ever dream of doing this much damage to Americans?, I discussed a movie, The Big Short. But what is a “short”. How do you make money out of a “short”?

Suppose you know for certain the price of some financial asset, say the stock of HiTech Corporation (HiTech) is about to shoot up. Perhaps you’ve heard there’s going to be a takeover bid or maybe they’re about to announce the invention of a super battery that will make electric cars a no brainer.

Did Osama bin Laden ever dream of doing this much damage to Americans?

Want to know how the Conspiracy operates? I mean how it really operates? Not the fantasy word of Alex Jones or David Icke.  Not Jeff Rense’s rubbish.

I mean do you want to see what happens in real life?

Then see The Big Short Continue reading “Did Osama bin Laden ever dream of doing this much damage to Americans?”
