Our war in Afghanistan has increased the production of opium therefore increasing US deaths due to heroin overdoses.

August 7, 2017

The USA consumes 80% of the world’s heroin. If we simply got out of Afghanistan and let the people there run their own country the Opium Crop would be reduced as it’s against the Koran to grow it… Trump is Right – We are Losing the War. We ought to simply surrender just like we did in Vietnam and Nicaragua. That would reduce US deaths from Heroin and Soldier Suicide.

As you can see from the UN Chart above our war has increased the crop yield: Up to the year 2000 the Russians were at war in Afghanistan. Then in 2001 the people of Afghanistan ruled their own country. Then the USA invaded and crop production increased. Most of that Opium eventually comes to America and kills people here.

Donald Trump: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire. CAUGHT on tape. Verified by Sarah Huckabee Sanders

August 5, 2017

The President of Mexico says he didn’t call Trump at all last week. Trump claimed he called and congratulated Trump for the great job Trump was doing on illegal immigration.

The Head of the Boy Scouts says he didn’t call Trump at all Last Week. Trump says the boy scout called to tell Trump that Trump gave the greatest speech ever at the jamboree.

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/watch-sarah-huckabee-sanders-insists-trump-didnt-lie-about-phone-calls-she-admits-never-took-place/

Sarah Huckabee Sanders verified that Trump Lied.

———————- (~);-} ———————–

Last week, President Trump gave a highly partisan speech to the quadrennial Boy Scout Jamboree that a leader of the organization later ended up apologizing for. Not withing standing that apology, Trump maintains that his speech was “great” and that the Boy Scouts told him so:

President Trump said the head of the Boy Scouts called his recent address “the greatest speech that was ever made to them,” days before the chief scout executive apologized for the president’s remarks.
Trump faced criticism for the speech last Monday, which many saw as inappropriately political for the jamboree setting.
Trump denied to The Wall Street Journal that there was any “mixed” reaction to his speech, noting the standing ovations from the crowd. His comments to the Journal were first made public in a transcript of the interview Politico published Tuesday.
“And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful,” Trump said. “So there was — there was no mix.”

The Boy Scouts, however, are basically denying that any such call took place:

Do we really want to hand over control of our computer systems to a Russian Businessman?

August 5, 2017

Supposedly Kaspersky’s early KGB training ended when he started his own business but… What IF… What if Putin asked Kaspersky to upload a ransomware style attack on the USA? As a bargaining chip in the Sanctions debate… We recently saw an attack on the Ukraine with a virus that pretended to be ransomware but was actually just designed to destroy data… Frankly, I recommend buying your antivirus software from an American Company… Norton, PC-Matic or McAfey…

An anti virus program has access to all sections of your computer and receives frequent updates. This is the basic definition of a Trojan Horse. Here is a free gift from Mr. Kaspersky…

https://techcrunch.com/2017/07/26/kaspersky-lab-releases-free-antivirus-software-in-global-push/?ncid=mobilenavtrend

I saw Eugene Kaspersky on TV being interviewed by MSNBC… He seems like a nice man and appears to be trustworthy. However, he does live in Moscow and that’s because he is a Russian Patriot. He could live anywhere in the world and manage his business online but… He has selected Moscow because it’s a great city! He could live in Tahiti, Monaco or NYC or even LA but those locations do not appeal to him.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Kaspersky

What IF… Well, it’s simply too late to worry about this because his programs are already installed on Millions of Computers… Have a nice day.

Tax Cuts for ALL! It can be paid for by debt and letting our great grandchildren worry about the bill later.

August 5, 2017

That’s Trumps Plan. Coming soon to Congress: Raising the national debt ceiling and what they jokingly call “Tax Reform”. What that means is a vast tax cut for the 1% and a small tax cut for the 99%. It’s a Win-Win plan! Just like getting a brand new credit card, we can spend NOW NOW NOW and worry about paying back the loan later… Is it possible for the entire country to declare bankruptcy? That’s a great way to avoid paying your bills… Trump’s done it four (4) times!

Maybe we should become Allies with Russia. End the Cold War and learn how to do business together.

July 21, 2017

What if Trump’s right? What if all this anti-Russian panic is absurd? Why don’t we stop with all the fear and loathing an let Exxon Mobil drill for oil in Siberia? We had a good partnership in World War Two. Then there was decades of bizarre anti communist panic.

I heard that during the 1950s Senator Joe McCarthy and the House In American Activities Committee hassled folksingers like Pete Seeger about whether or not he was a member of the communist party. People in Hollywood had their careers ruined because the government was afraid that they would use the power of films to influence public opinion and allow Commie Ideas to brainwash the masses. Seems absurd now…

Then we fought wars in Korea, Vietnam and Nicaragua to prevent creeping Communism from taking over the World. Well, we found out that even the USSR and China didn’t like Communism. Not much danger of that economic system taking over… In the mean time, the USA lost over 50,000 lives and spent trillions of dollars fighting an enemy that was doomed to fail from within.

Why don’t we just learn to get along? Sure, their country has problems. For example: they kill newspaper reporters that criticize Putin and they let their “Mafia” steal all the “Worker’s Assets”. Yes, THEY have troubles but are they not our troubles but THEIRS? Shouldn’t we stop trying to “Improve” their government’s behavior by imposing Sanctions? Why can’t we be friends?

If we stopped believing the Cold War Brainwashing maybe everyone would be better off…

Lie with Statistics – Learn How to Create Misleading Bar Charts
Bar charts that use a resized photograph instead of a bar Automatically give the viewer an exaggerated idea… RESIZE the photo using constrained proportions. This gives the illusion that a increase of Two times is displayed as a Four times increase in area. This technique was used a lot by the newspaper USA TODAY.

meta-chart-accurate-representation-of-data
Normal, Accurate Bar Chart.

meta-chart-distorted-image-resize-statistics-lie
Distorted Chart Using a Resized Photo as bars in the bar chart.

Double the Height = Four Times the Area.

Visually Exaggerating Change. It’s an Illusion. A Magic trick.

Compare the two charts. What do you see? Report results in the comments section below. It appears to me that the bottom chart shows a situation that is More Significant than the top chart…
I learned this from Dr Kim of Humboldt State University. Thanks! Dr. Kim.

Question. a Quest for an Ion… Like CERN and subatomic physics…

July 15, 2012

So, there has been great strides forward in physics… The articles I have read make me wonder… since this discovery is of a truly fundamental nature, what IS the Higgs Boson and how will it effect our understanding of reality… It is FUN to QUESTION REALITY.Image

I do not pretend to actually understand what it is that they have discovered but… It seems that this particle is what causes mass to exist at all. AND it helps to explain why spiral galaxies don’t simply expand forever instantly… There is a fundamental mystery being explored there. Thanks CERN. For Your Information: That is where Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. He needed a way to navigate easily from one computer file to another… so he invented the LINK. Pretty profound Idea… Here is a LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Berners-Lee
