Valentines1I know it was yesterday, but I still want to say Happy Valentine’s Day to my followers who don’t see my Facebook page.


 

I really can’t understand the big stink about Brian Williams reporting and memory issues when we accept complete fantasies delivered as news on Fox.


 

I’m glad to see that several more states, including very conservative Alaska, are trying tofRANKcORN pass GMO labeling laws. If we can require labels to tell us if there are nuts in the product, ore even if it was made in a factory that processes nuts, there is no reason why we can’t get these labels on GMO junk. I think the real reason the industry is fighting so hard against it is that once we know which products contain GMOs, we will be able to accumulate statistics that will show how much health problems of today are the result of these strange products with scrambled DNA.


 

While looking at news stories online, I saw an add for clothes that change color to adjust to the weather. I’ve thought for some time that a good idea to help us all save on heating and cooling costs would be roofing tiles that change color: white or light color in hot weather and black or dark gray in cold.

I’m glad that Bill Gates has added his influential voice to those warning us that if we give machines too much artificial intelligence, they may one day take over and enslave us. This is not, as some will claim, an anti-technology stance, but a concern about the type of technology. Even if you don’t think that machines could ever take over, consider how turning intellectual activities will make us progressively dumber just as turning most physically straining activities over to machines left us fat and weak. A simple example of this is to just notice how so many young people now use no punctuation of any kind when they post on Twitter or Facebook.


 

We’re all loving the nice weather we are having in the Reno, Nevada area while the East suffers from blizzards and cold. The bad news, though, is very little rain in January which is usually the rainiest month of the year. This indicate that the big West Coast drought is far from over.


 

I love the complete illogical statements coming from the fans of vaccinations. They are asking governments to ban kids without vaccinations from schools, or force them to be vaccinated, at gun point if necessary. They are afraid they they will pass some illness on to their heavily drugged children. But if the vaccinations actually work, what are they afraid of? Shouldn’t their children be totally immune? Or are they admitting that vaccinations just don’t do what they claim to do?

HawkingI’m sorry, but I do not buy the idea that a young woman of twenty nine is a hero for committing suicide because she had cancer. Many people like Stephen Hawking have debilitating and painful illness, but they fight to do their best to get on with life. People like the vets in those Wounded Warrior commercials, who suffer lose of limbs, sight etc. and keep on going. Those are the real heroes, not someone who wimps out and kills herself as soon as her brain tumor starts giving her headaches and seizures. And while a doctor may have told her that she had only about 6 months to live, that is just an estimate and sometimes, just like a guy who played a slot machine only once and wins a million dollar jackpot when the odds of such a win are one in 150 million, some people beat medical estimates by quite a bit.


 

The only thing I can say about the election this past week is that we should all remember the old saying, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.”


 

A woman in California was recently sentenced to sixteen years in prison for running a fake college that was really just a scheme to help people get student visas. It would be nice there were a way to put the phony spiritual schools out of business also. It isn’t just that they teach falsehood, but that they take people who are genuinely interested in spiritual growth, and turn them away from doing so with there nonsense.
