OK, where did you hear this?

I hear so many blatant statements that are far from truth when researched, I'm not talking heavy research -- I mean a couple of web searches.

The problem is knowing what is true and reliable on the web. Believe it or not, there are standards to judge a site as reliable and worth having trust. Following is a link "Standard Practices for Evaluating Websites"

Yes, there are tools to believe the information you have been given.

There is so much mis-information that people want to believe and it floats through all the social media with little resistance.

We need to ask "Where did you get this? Who told you this? etc."

The biggest problem is that the information (true or not) is exaggerated to make it more persuasive. Say it louder and the masses will believe it.

And with this questionable information dogma is once again re-enforced.

Sad. Who are the truth sayers? The relationship of the poor and Jesus have been forgotten in the current discussion.

Unionize the Robots

You may remember a previous post that suggests we export unions as well as jobs to help the working conditions in other countries to which we send our jobs. But I now think that is not enough. We now need to unionize the robots that replace workers in our own manufacturing plants. How can we be sure the line between intelligent life forms does not include robots? Just think of trying to cross a union picket line of robots.

American Taliban

This most recent move by Komen to defund Planned Parenthood is disturbing. How is it different from the Taliban who show no respect for women. To me this is just a symbolic burka for American women. Those old white men in congress who think they know best are no better than those Afghan butchers killing women in a stadium for entertainment. I'm getting rid of all my pink tennis balls!
