Airport welcome

Syracuse Hancock International Airport: There are flights to and from Toronto, not sure what other international destinations. I do know it’s possible to fly from Cyprus to Syracuse via Toronto. Not a big point of entry, but it is one. Tonight a little after 6:30 there was a traffic jam on the way in.That was … More Airport welcome

Bite the hand

So Trump is where he is today in part due to the failures and misdeeds of the mainstream media… and now he’s declared war on the media. Poor MSM. Hammered by the left, who want them to change and expose Trump for the treasonous fraud he is, and on the other hand getting no incentive from … More Bite the hand

Snowflakes

One of the organizers of Syracuse in Solidarity, a sister event to the Women’s March on Washington, said there were about 2000 of us there. If anything I think that’s perhaps an underestimate. But I’ll let you count ’em. (Add one, I was up on the parking garage roof at the time.) I hadn’t even gotten … More Snowflakes

Donald Trump is making claims that millions of fraudulent votes were … More Letter to Congress

Of importance

We are down to the last few weeks before Election Day, and for that I am thankful.

The level of hatefulness, dishonesty, narcissism, megalomania, and contempt we have seen is unprecedented. And nearly all on … More Of importance

Correlations

My acquaintance Louis Nick recently put a link up on Google+ to http://freedominthe50states.org/, a site which ranks the fifty United States by a subjectively defined definition of “freedom”. Now, the first thing I wonder when I see a list like this is, what does it correlate with? Specifically, how does “freedom” correlate with income? Here’s a … More Correlations

Steal this post

Copyright law, in the US and in much of the rest of the world, is broken. No, that’s not the word for it. I’m not sure there is a word for “mangled into obscene wrongness”. Copyrights now are in effect, basically, for eternity. Fair use is nearly nonexistent, and its limits are defined arbitrarily and … More Steal this post

That’s over

Well, pretty good election day. Way better than I expected, really. I was worriedly optimistic Obama would win, but I figured we wouldn’t know until the wee hours at best… and maybe much longer, a la Florida 2000. (Then I had paranoid moments about shenanigans in Ohio, but not too much of that.) I wasn’t … More That’s over
