What Is This Place?

The top image is from the SONO Switch Tower Museum. A treat little place to visit in South Norwalk CT. I occasionally volunteer there from time to time.

An Establishment in Panic, by Patrick J. Buchanan

People far what they don’t understand. the establishment has cut itself off from the body politic and no longer understands it. Of course they are panicked when the people no longer act like tame sheep.


The establishment fears that the appreciable numbers of people are rejecting its authority, and they are. From Patrick J. Buchanan at buchanan.org:

Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace as to whether he would accept defeat should Hillary Clinton win the election, Donald Trump replied, “I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense.”

“That’s horrifying,” said Clinton, setting off a chain reaction on the post-debate panels with talking heads falling all over one another in purple-faced anger, outrage and disbelief.

“Disqualifying!” was the cry on Clinton cable.

“Trump Won’t Say If He Will Accept Election Results,” wailed The New York Times. “Trump Won’t Vow to Honor Results,” ran the banner in The Washington Post.

But what do these chattering classes and establishment bulletin boards think the Donald is going to do if he falls short of 270 electoral votes?

Lead a Coxey’s Army on Washington and burn it…

It Was a Bright Cold Day in April, and the Clocks Were Striking Patriarchy

Sarah’s nightmare. I just hope it stays fiction. I REALLY hope that this stays fiction.

According To Hoyt

‘As you lie there,’ said O’Brien, ‘you have often wondered you have even asked me — why the Ministry of Love should expend so much time and trouble on you. And when you were free you were puzzled by what was essentially the same question. You could grasp the mechanics of the Society you lived in, but not its underlying motives. Do you remember writing in your diary, “I understand how: I do not understand why“? It was when you thought about “why” that you doubted your own sanity. You have read the book, Hayek’s book, or parts of it, at least. Did it tell you anything that you did not know already?’

‘You have read it?’ said Winston.

‘I wrote it. That is to say, I collaborated in writing it. No book is produced individually, as you know.’

‘Is it true, what it says?’ Something about the…

The Long History Of Terrorism From The Left

The other day I was listening to Adam Savage’s podcast and he mentioned that there were no lockers in the railroad stations and airports in New York City because of 9/11.  Actually the lockers were pulled twenty years before 9/11 because somebody had put a bomb in one back in 1981.  Back then the terror problem wasn’t Islamists, but one leftist group or another creating chaos supported by  the KGB.

Tech Stuff 40

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another.  It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity.  It might relate to science large or small.  It might be art for art’s sake.  Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries.  So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old.  So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways.  Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of.  So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.
