"Mysterious radio signal from space"

Does NASA know this?

I checked and NASA has nothing about a mysterious radio signal. Do you think someone should tell them?


"Change" & the State

I remember when former president Obama’s campaign promise was “change”, the “change” that could be believed in that voters have yearned for but have never got. He knew that the word “change” was beloved by everyone because most people believed that “change” resembled the horn of plenty. But real “change” frightens almost everyone: when inquiring about the cause of illness the ancient historian Herodotus said that he believed that illness was caused by “change”. Today almost everyone who says anything about politics hates President Trump -“Trump Haters” – because he threatens to “change” how things are done in the “deep state”- the state – bureaucracy that fears the temporary demands that may be put upon them every election period by disrupting officials who do not understand how things are done. Those whose work days follow procedures for keeping government functioning smoothly fear that anyone not initiated in its ways could be a tyrannical outsider demanding that they perform their duties his way.

No evidence

“The president retweeted assertions that Romney “stabbed Trump in the back” by joining Democrats in attempts to overturn the 2016 election, and that the Utah senator was connected to unsubstantiated claims that Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was corruptly involved with the Burisma Holdings energy company in Ukraine.”Feb. 9, 2020

Who needs a gun?

No one needs a gun. When I was growing up in the city of Toronto not long after WWII I didn’t think anyone had one. And with several news papers publishing two or three editions a day I’m certain I’d have known if they did. I do recall that when I’d gotten in my teens there were reports that some old guy not far from where I lived shot somebody with a rifle. Years later Toronto mayor Miller reacted to a shooting that was the first of string of hand gun shootings that have been increasing in frequency to the present. I recall fifteen years ago after a young person had been shot a few miles away a neighbour asking “Does that mean every kid has a gun?” Well less than 2 weeks ago a 15 year old left his school and was shot dead by another 15 year old.

Mr. Trump/Mr Sanders( 6. GDP, not 6.9)

I felt this way several times before, but I think I’m seeing fewer articles about President Trump online. But sadly that does not mean objective reports about his policies and supporters will ensue. Now it seems he’s being replaced by Bernie Sanders articles from both liberal and conservative commentators; everyone seems to be championing or at least defending Sanders the socialist against his not so socialist challengers.

Maybe journalists know that media consumers won’t consume critiques of Mr. Trump’s spending enormous public debt to fund military equipment for the very Generals he’s been criticizing, or why America’s 2.1 GDP is as impressive as China’s new low of 6., or that great wealth and power are still available to individuals like Huawei  in communist/socialist China and that socialist Sanders has a lot more money and influence than most North Americans.
