We’re All Making History

by baldilocks A tad morbid, but this is something to consider, and not just with Facebook. The number of dead Facebook users could outnumber the living by 2070, leaving a vast archive of such historical importance that archivists should be brought in to conserve the data, Oxford University has said.

Russia playing the spoiler

Kazakhstan...as always, squished. The news broke recently about Russian President Putin meeting with Kim Jong Un to discuss peace on the Korean peninsula.

Earth Day – A progressive holy day overflowing with propaganda

Once again this year I failed to observe Earth Day.  I take great pride in having ignored Earth Day every year since I was forced take part in the festivities while in school.

I’m old enough to remember when Democrats pretended to be anti-war…

...because they didn't want to admit they were on the other side. But with the rise of Illan Omar now the cat is out of the bag.
