MS Governor Supporting Lawyers

The birth control bill the Governor signed today is unconstitutional and will be over turned. The legal fees are a big waste of taxpayer money. I understand the religious moral traditions of many who live in MS but the government is to support freedom and liberty not religious beliefs.

In the big picture the earth is over populated for its resources and more people in poverty only makes less resources and and pollution for everyone. Growth is not an option as we head to the 22 century. Women’s rights are also an issue as they should not be forced to create lives they can not support or have the abilities to raise as good citizens. It takes more than just being female to raise children that are ready to be adults in a world of a declining environment.

Think long and hard before you elect leaders that rule with misguided religious traditions that do not match the reality we face.

Myth of Unlimited Resources

It has come to my attention that many political figures believe they can produce unlimited resources and want to save the world from poverty. There is a great difference between having unlimited money and unlimited resources. Money is just a promise by humans to deliver products and services at some time in the future. No one really nows what the future will bring so a promise is not 100% probability. Nations go bankrupt, people die, droughts, wars, mistakes, and just plain greed wipe out resources which money is based on.

The U.S. through the Federal Reserve creates the money supply and they have very few resources to back those promises up with. It is only the belief that the system will keep going that motivates people to work for money. In the big picture resources are limited such as air, energy, land, and clean water. It takes energy to make water clean. It takes clear land to grow food. The land needs a good climate and water to grow crops. If we clear a forrest to make way for a farm we change the environment which provides the right climate. If we produce energy we change the climate, If we dirty the water we change the climate. Changes in the climate changes living things some for the better and others it destroys.

The next time government approves a project that increases population of humans at the expense of the climate research all the problems it creates.

Objective Reality?

A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality

Physicists have long suspected that quantum mechanics allows two observers to experience different, conflicting realities. Now they’ve performed the first experiment that proves it.And today, Massimiliano Proietti at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and a few colleagues say they have performed this experiment for the first time: they have created different realities and compared them. Their conclusion is that Wigner was correct—these realities can be made irreconcilable so that it is impossible to agree on objective facts about an experiment.
So the two realities are at odds with each other. “This calls into question the objective status of the facts established by the two observers,” say Proietti and co.

Government at War With Itself

The fight between cultures and poetical philosophy rages on. Everyone is steadfast in their beliefs. The real problem of growing population reduces resources for each individual. The earth and nature only have so much to offer and using natural resources faster than nature can provide means we are destroying the future for our children. Not everyone has the ability to understand a finite world and limited resources. Many others do not want to admit limits and finite. A system where we borrow from the future and promise to pay it back does not always work since people believe that are capable of doing more than the reality of what can be done. Then we have death where people borrow and never pay it back. Student loans are just one example as is the government debt because they have control of inflation which means they never pay back what the borrowed. This may work when the world has excess resources but not when we are using resources faster than they are made.

The intentions of Democrats looks good on paper but does not work with real humans. The policy of Republicans looks good to an imaginary God but do not work in reality with real people. Many of our laws are not enforced because of lack of resources and the fact that most people break laws which we can not afford put all of them away. Selective enforcement just tears the country apart a goal our enemies would love to happen.

What is Good Government?

“Money Doesn’t Solve Problems. People Solve Problems.”

When we watch the media report on the problems government faces they add an emotional bias. Quotes and selective cuts mold a catastrophic entertainment to the mix. Everything seems to focus on the importance of the value of money which is noting more than a promise to do a favor. Many can not deliver on promises because the request is outside of their abilities. Throwing money at the problem does not fix the problem of what people do.

An example on the news is the new republican candidate for Governor wants to add another year of schooling to Mississippi public schools. This is not solving the problem of the educational system in Mississippi. First we need to define what education is and what it is not. Education is teaching wisdom, sharping abilities and intellectual thinking and introducing new experiences and skills to be the foundation for life long learning. Education is not job training which employers should do and fund, not the taxpayer.

Mississippi is at the bottom of the lists on both economic and educational scales because the politicians do not understand the problems of how children become adults. First there is parenting skills which are severely lacking especially when people in poverty have children they can not afford or have the time to spend with their children. Next there is the upper class helicopter parents that control every aspect of the child’s life preventing personal growth through random experiences and problem solving.

These problems are not solved by money but rather by people.

Half Human

“Overflowing garbage, feces on roads prompt Yosemite National Park officials to close some campgrounds”

When the voter has compassion and empathy they are not also considering the carelessness of those they provide help to. Many humans do not want to have self control or care about the effects of their behaviors. Many never had parents that cared about the big picture of what kind of future they are making for their children.

Many parents never think about the world when they have a desire for sex. Today it costs over a quarter of a million dollars to raise a child to 18 and that is not including college. Where are the immigrants prepared to produce that sum without an education or skills to provide humanity in trade?

Artificial Intelligence

Self driving cars and trucks are not wanted mixed with humans. Most machines programed to take human work have malfunctions that can harm humans. It becomes a matter of probability which can be bad luck.

” Wielding Rocks and Knives, Arizonans Attack Self-Driving Cars” Humans make errors and have emotions based on sometimes fake facts. Fake facts are what many use as propaganda to manipulate other humans for benefits. Corruption seems OK to those that lack moral and ethical codes we all agree on. In a democracy or democratic republic we rarely have a high probability that most people agree.

How are machines going to reconcile disagreements of humans?

Traditions

The end of the year has long standing traditions for different cultures and families. Going back in history after harvest season and the days getting shorter in the north people take a rest from the demanding growing seasons. They have stored provisions for the winter and have tome to reflect. No wonder why religions have taken advantage of these rhythms .

In the modern world of technology, world travel and trade, have cultures mix and create new ways of dealing with these annual repeats of life. New evidence along with world wide education moves many of the past beliefs to the mythical range, yet people still have habits and subconscious beliefs when reality provides randomness. The unknowns become stuff of dreams which have their own inner reality.

It is a time of year that greed by some use all sorts of methods to manipulate others emotions to their favor and a time when other people can show life the best they have to offer.

Create your own Traditions.

Crash Avoidance Systems

The new electronics on automobiles does not avoid crashes it causes them. This holiday weekend I have seen many crashes due to the computers on cars. When dense traffic is going down the interstate people only leave 2-3 car lengths at 60-70 MPH. then if some one changes lanes the distance is short enough to trigger the computer to put on the breaks. This causes a chain reaction that ends in a pileup involving several fender benders and a traffic jam for miles as one lane gets blocked. The computers are not ready to be controlling things humans can do better.

Immigration

In history the Greeks and Romans invaded lands and and both killed people or took them as slaves. When the europeans came to North America they tried to do the same. The Native American fought back but was defeated. Now with all this new appropriated land the new American government needed warm bodies to settle the land and defend it. Not much care was given to the quality of settler except that they were not sick and were able to fend for themselves. Many could not make it on their own and died. The French were delighted to send their homeless poor to get rid of them so they gave the American government a huge statue in the New York Harbor. In 1900 the world population was 1.3 billion. Today the world population is over 7.3 billion as human deplete earth’s resources faster than nature can renew them. There are 4 billion people living on less than $3 a day. They would love to move to the United States where the welfare check pays $24 a day.

The problem is the world resources can only support 2 billion people living middle class lifestyle and maintain a healthy environment. What to do with the excess 5.3 billion people? It is obvious that the environment is suffering under the strain of over use of resources. In the last 50 years 60% of the known species have gone extinct and not replaced by new species. Climate change is changing habitable land areas. Pollution is destroying the oceans and the available clean water. Air in cities is not suitable to breath. Americans are at the top of the food chain in using available natural resources per person.

It is not possible for this trend to continue and have humanity survive. What to do? First humanity has got to limit population especially eliminate growth till we can move to another planet. Moving more people up the ladder to consume more resources only speeds up the destruction. Many people live in a poor environment with fighting for resources. Corrupt governments and lawlessness makes it very difficult to have a family and support them. It is not possible for everyone who wants to start a family to do so. How can a decision be made that some get families and others do not? Survival of the fittest for the present environment?

In order to maintain a comfortable lifestyle the United States can no longer take the homeless poor as we have no more land to settle. To stay on top we need the brightest and healthy individuals that embrace our values. We can not tax the present population to support people that are not able to compete in our society. Think about where humanity is going and is it a good idea to have a child you can not provide a future for.
