The Token President

By not closing Guantanamo Bay as he promised in the 2008 presidential campaign and by signing the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, by ordering the death by drone of American citizens, and many other acts President Obama has proved that he has not been the president of change Americans had hoped for. President Obama has not been a better president than President Bush, and in fact President Obama’s administration has followed to the letter many of Bush’s policies. It can safely be said that President Obama has been a disappointment as a president and that he is a token president.

Welcome To The Future

After a tragedy or attack, politicians are always quick to try to pass laws and pundits are quick to speculate as to a motive. What neither the public, politicians, and pundits understand is that this is the new world order. As a people we are programmed to try to split hairs between us versus then, but in reality there is no difference between any one of us just as there is no difference between a tornado rolling through Oklahoma City or Hurricane Sandy flooding New York City, just like there is no difference between the bombing in the Boston Marathon or a drone strike in Yemen, there is no difference between a Syrian rebel eating the heart of his enemy and the FBI killing a detained suspect during routine questioning, there is no difference between spontaneous protests and terrorist attacks, there is no difference between underwear bombs and laser guided bombs, there is no difference between conquering in the name of Allah or destroying in the name of shareholders, there is no difference between ethnic cleansing and foreign policy, there is no difference between the master race and the chosen people, there is no difference between crime and punishment, there is no difference between reality television and news programs, there is no difference between propaganda and an official press release, there is no difference between a government and gang, there is no difference between any of this and any of this doesn’t make a difference. Welcome of the new world order, welcome to the future.

3D Printing Press

Can you imagine how different our world would be if a large imposing government had stepped in to regulate the manufacture, sale, and use of the Gutenberg’s printing press?  We would still be living in the dark ages.  3D printing technology is poised to have a similar affect on our society as the Gutenberg’s printing press had on medieval Europe but the US government and American corporations such as Disney want to restrict and regulated the technology. 3D will change the world and the trajectory of human development for the better.

Faux Nerds and Nerdxplotation

Recently at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, people were asked to tweet with the hashtag #nerdprom. Of course, #nerdprom was the wrong hashtag for the event. A more appropriate hashtag would have been #doucheprom. But the White House complicit correspondents are not the only ones attempting to appropriate the word nerd. Just about anyone that says they like video games or idiotically repeats internet memes like “May the Fourth be with you” think of themselves as true nerds. Since when did being a nerd become cool? But being a nerd is just like being cool, if you say you are a nerd you most like aren’t a nerd. Case in point, the Nerdist podcast. There is nothing nerd about the Nerdist podcast, instead of talking nerd the folks behind the Nerdist podcast mostly interview E-level Hollywood celebrities from the E! studios. Instead of being a true die hard dual-core nerd, Chris Hardwick is a Ryan Seacrest imitator and wannabe. Going to Comic-con to exploit nerds does not make one a nerd.

Disney’s Planes and Drones

This is how original Disney is… they steal classic fairy tales like Cinderella and Snow White, the appropriate historical figures like Mulan and Pocahontas. Now, Disney is following up on the Cars franchise with Planes. Disney’s Planes is based on the same antropromorphic world of talking vehicles with names like Dusty and Rusty and and Musty and Busty and Lusty. The originality for the concept behind Planes shows that Disney has replaced its creativity with a cash register. Since I have reversed engineered Disney’s creative process, I can predict up coming Disney movies… Later this year look for Trains. Early next next, Disney will release Boats, followed on by Drones.

Regulated Republic

We like to think that we live in a democracy and that we have freedoms and liberties that few other nations enjoy. This idea is American propaganda and mythology in the making. The United States of America is not a federal constitutional republic, its a federal regulated republic. The United States is full of regulatory agencies such as the FDA, EPA, SEC, and FAA amongst others. There are government buildings full of agencies and government regulators that want to regulate our fundamental freedoms. I’m all for regulating large industries and known polluters. No one wants to board a plane that has missed scheduled maintenance, or consume food full of chemicals and other known toxins, and of course no one wants their kids to play with toys laden with lead. That said, regulatory agencies have begun to encroach on a persons freedom to eat whatever they want. New York has moved to ban large sugary soft drinks and transfat from area restaurants. California has moved to make the sale and consumption of Foie Gras. The is the level of idiocracy in California, to make food illegal while at the same time making control substances like marijuana legal. This is the beginning of our shared regulated future.

In Capitalist America

I find the In Soviet Russia jokes really funny. If you are not familiar with these, here is classic example.

In America, you can always find a party. In Soviet Russia, Party always find you!

Recently someone posted the following question on reddit which spurred over a thousand comments: Do Russians have “In Capitalist America” jokes? Here are some of the In Capitalist America jokes from that thread of comments.
