  1. I hit the condense button and I like it better that way.
  2. Shadow Net? Trivia time. Who directed the movie, “The Green Berets”? John Wayne. I have asked this before but who’s birth name is Hans-Jörg Gudegast? Who played in the National Challenge Cup as a fullback with the Jewish American soccer club Maccabi Los Angeles, scoring the winning goal in the semifinal and a penalty kick in the final against Cleveland Internationals”? Eric Braeden better known as Victor Newman on “The Young and the Restless.” That Shadow Net thingee reminded me of a Eric Braeden movie. From Wikipedia. Colossus: The Forbin Project (a.k.a. The Forbin Projec
  3. On Steve Hilton’s Show The Next Revolution on Fox news, he called Biden’s pick: “Kamala Chameleon.” I liked that Boy George song, where he talked about contradiction, color, and living without conviction. Culture Club – “Karma Chameleon.” There's a loving in your eyes all the way If I listen to your lies, would you say I'm a man without conviction I'm a man who doesn't know How to sell a contradiction You come and go, you come and go Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon You come and go, you come and go Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
  4. “Well, I’ll be darned,” said Ronald Reagan, also known as The Gipper. It’s a bit early and not yet midnight, but from RCP and CNN, August 17, 2020. General Election, Biden 50, Trump 46. Biden + 4 It does look that perhaps there is no positive Kamala affect. However the composite polling still shows Biden ahead by around 7 percent. On another front I had about 7 requests for money from the DJT campaign. It may be that time . . . for those crushing ads to begin.
  5. Thanks to our northern province, Canadia. MIke Myers. I am a bit leery about the idea of mail in voting, though some voters have opted for that method over the years, as with the elderly. Of course there are always absentee ballots among the military and their families. When I vote I must show my ID, even though the polling staff may know me by sight. What if election day comes and goes but Americans are are still waiting for the absentee ballots to come in and be counted? That is not good. And there is a greater chance of fraud. After taking precautions a grocery store can have peop
  6. The best president since Abraham Lincoln is Trump? I am not sure of the comparison but as far as making America freer again the Pastor is right. It is Trump. I wouldn’t mind seeing one of those “sliding scale of values graphs” showing the various Presidents’ adherents to the Constitution and the promotion of freedom. Yup. Trump or Reagan? I would put Trump over Reagan. So, who was the United States greatest enemy? The Japs? The Nazis? The North Vietnamese? No. the greatest enemy of the United States was The Confederate States of America. The CSA sought to destroy The United States.
  7. He was too young. My brother who passed away from cancer at age 68 was also named Robert.
  8. Did you say Sniff? Huh? What? Sorry to wake you Joe. It didn’t work. Huh? The sniff test, Sir. Previously on Network TV. Hello. My name is Joe Biden and I am going to be the next President of the United States. Let me introduce to you, my running mate and next Vice President of These United States, Camelot . . uh . . . I mean Pamela . . . uh . . . I mean, ‘RELAEASE THE KRAKEN!”. From Bing. "Release the Kraken!" is a catchphrase and image macro series based on a memorable quote uttered by Zeus in the 1981 fantasy adventure film The Clash of the Titans as well a
  9. Do I have time for one more? You ask how to say my name? Kamala sounds like Pamela! And Kamala sounds like Camelot! It's true! It's true! The Brahmin’s have made it clear. The climate must be perfect all the year, like in California which is Camelot. A law was made a distant moon ago here: July and August cannot be too hot. And there's a legal limit to the snow and pot here in California-lot. The winter is forbidden till December and exits March the second on the dot. By order, summer lingers through September In California-lot, Camelot. I will turn America into one
  10. You are naughty. Very naughty. I never liked the Drumpf nickname. I am cancelling your subscription to Numismatics Magazine.
  11. I think Indians go from the upper class or caste Brahmins to the lower caste “Untouchables.” They’re worse than the Brits for class, status, unearned and fake nobility. So, from a Fake Jimmy Fallon skit when he is impersonating President Trump. President Jimmy Fallon's Trump: I saw that quote from Kamala’s mother where she says her Indian family was upper class Brahmin caste. That goes against how Californians likened her tough prosecution . . . some would say it was a persecution . . . of minority people. They called her the West Coast Elliot Ness. And she was an ‘Untouchable.” So let’
  12. From The Washington Post . . . . Indian politicians and commentators exulted in the selection. The fact that a person of Indian origin could be “a proverbial heartbeat away from the presidency is thrilling,” wrote Shashi Tharoor, a politician with the opposition Congress Party. Ram Madhav, a senior official in India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, saluted the history-making nature of the pick. Another Indian political commentator said the selection represented a ­“triumph of diversity and democracy.” From Bloomberg / Quint: 'We are Brahmins, that is the top caste', said Harris' mother,
  13. RCP Poll Averages. Biden 49.3, Trump 41.6, Biden up by 7.7. President Trump Job approval Approve 43.2. Disapprove 54.5. Direction of country, right direct 25.3 wrong track 69.5. Wrong track by 44.2. Battleground states. All for Biden except North Carolina where Trump is up by 1 percent.
  14. From Wikipedia: According to the 2010 United States Census, the Asian Indian population in the United States grew from almost 1,678,765 in 2000 (0.6% of U.S. population) to 2,843,391 in 2010 (0.9% of U.S. population), a growth rate of 69.37%, one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States. From The New York Times. A Revolution Transforms India: Socialism's Out, Free Market In By Edward A. Gargan March 29, 1992 From USA TODAY: How the Kamala Harris pick is playing with Indian Americans, a fast-growing and influential voting bloc Courtney Subramanian and Nicholas Wu, USA
  15. She is a nut case fermenting rebellion like a rum factory. What universe does she live in?
  16. DOW 27,930 at 1:17pm EST. I think school openings will be good . . . and bad for the market. Good because kids get educated, and parents can work. Bad because kids will get Covid with no or few symptoms and pass it on the Teacher, Parents, Grandparents, etc. Here in Worcester County, MD it will be the usual three tiered approach. Teachers with preexisting conditions are not happy about a total reopening, as of yet. I see California is seriously considering a "wealth tax" for the first time. Will they cry when the Hollywood types move out of state?
  17. We decided to watch some old Grimm's last night and the third episode had Nana Visitor from Star Trek Deep Space Nine.
  18. General Election: Trump vs. Biden FOX News Biden 49, Trump 42 Biden +7 The picking of Kamala did not mean much so far. The above was From Real clear Politics. I listened to about a half an hour of President Trump’s speech today and he nailed it. He was thorough, prepared, and knowledgeable. He answered reporters’ questions, many of them nearly phrased differently, but still repeated words or thoughts, without rancor. He is at the top of his game. I was impressed and gladdened.
  19. I remember when Trump entered office he said we will not be addressing the debt. I wonder what he will prioritize in the budget for 2021 and onwards? Tucker Carlson said tonight: “America’s cities are collapsing before our eyes . . . .” Well said Tucker, and the state’s governors who those cities are in, want federal handouts to bail out their poorly run, bankrupt territories. They want decently run states and America's producing class to subsidize them. Peter
  20. I saw you need to go to their website to register for Roger’s talk. The Atlas Society Asks Roger Bissell. Join us on August 19th at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET for The Atlas Society Asks Roger Bissell.

Tune in to hear what he has to say about how Objectivism and music has changed over the years!
  21. From The Hill. Biden campaign raises record $26 million in one day after announcing VP pick.
  22. So far I haven’t noticed a Kamala effect. From Real Clear Politics. 270 electoral votes are needed to be elected. President Trump and VP Pence received 306 electoral votes in 2016. 232 went to the Clinton/Kain ticket. Does anybody even remember Kain? As of now Biden and Harris will have 212 electoral votes to Trump / Pence’s 115 and there are 211 Toss up states. With no toss up States and just considering who’s ahead, it is a bit Grimm.

    Purpose

    I watched the Tom Hanks movie, "Angels and Demons" the other night. A whole lot of Cardinals were portrayed and a dead Pope. What is their purpose in life? They siphon off money from people and really do nothing. They should be made to learn magic.
