Stuxnet cyber-bomb…

leave a comment »

Someone appears to have  determined that the Stuxnet virus which damaged Iran’s centrifuges was built by people as clever as the armies of cyber hackers China and Russia and such employ to attack the cyber world.   Yes, hackers design their malware the same way, but they generally have a single target in mind.

Flying the past…

The Eclipse jet is going to be manufactured again.   I flew on one some years ago  — a sweet ride.  I’m glad Sikorsky aircraft has made an investment in this little light jet’s rebirth.

History repeating?

leave a comment »

These are striking  photographs from 1939 to 1943,  from a collection at the Smithsonian.  I have been through places in America in modern times that don’t look that much different.

The question is,  will some enterprising group travel around the nation and document the damage done by  the economic policies of His Oneness?

Laser-like focus…

A. F. Branco has a  wonderful cartoon  depicting the actual victim of the focus His Oneness claims to have on jobs.

Editing a boast…

leave a comment »

In a recent interview with CBS,  His Oneness claimed that he was the fourth best president.   Why did 60 Minutes  edit that claim out  of the televised piece?   Gee,  it can’t be because CBS,  like most other big media,  is still in the tank for His Oneness,  could it?

Dr. Milton Wolf finds it  rather tragic,  while you can catch a  poem and video  here.

Robert Knight  lays out plainly  what His Oneness has done to our country,  and to us.

Pizza gun…

Why does any parent worthy of the title put a child in  this public school system?   In my youth,  we took our guns to school during hunting season and the only thing the principal told us was to have good luck in the field.

Nelson retiring…

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson isn’t  going to run  for re-election.   Apparently he isn’t willing to stay on to stop the tea party.
