Crimes

Do people report crimes when they know the government is not going to enforce the laws?

Is Our News Bought?

Several of the so-called national security experts at CNN that you see on television every night have direct links to the nation of Qatar, a terror-funding, Islamist enclave in the Middle East that has placed itself on the warpath against America’s most important regional allies.

Much of the information broadcasted to the American public is propaganda paid for by organizations that have special interests in motivating the American public.

Robo Calls

The FCC Has Fined Robocallers $208 Million. It’s Collected $6,790.
America’s telecommunications regulators have levied hefty financial penalties against illegal robocallers and demanded that bad actors repay millions to their victims. But years later, little money has been collected. The Federal Government is not serious about protecting the citizen but rater focused on how much campaign money they can get from the lobbyists. We will be a failed country if laws and enforcement are ignored. If the government can not follow up on enforcement they can not make laws to protect the citizens.

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.

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?

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.
