I don’t know what’s more offensive, that Trump is a racist or that he’s too stupid to know he’s a racist. He definitely is too stupid to hide it. Or is it a plan to deescalate tensions with North Korea or distract from the Russia investigation?

OK – this is very very weird. The above video is the tracking solar collector I built several years ago. It still works BTW. But here’s what’s weird. If you do a satellite view of my house from Google Maps – the collector is gone! However – the collector’s shadow is still there. My address is 7498 Chestnut St. Gilroy CA. Look at it yourself. This thing is big, and yet it’s gone!

Get even stranger. If I open up google maps in firefox it looks normal. But if I open it up in Chrome Browser my collector is gone.

I watched Al Gore’s Inconvenient Sequel and I was not impressed. But before I review it I’ll disclose my biases.

I’m of the opinion that there is some global warming but that we have more time to fix it than some alarmists would have you believe. There is no tipping point and the Earth isn’t going to turn into Venus. But putting pollution into the air is a bad idea and anything that reduces that is a good thing.

While I applaud those who generally increase environmental awareness I’m also a scientific purist and lying about science is worse than the benefits of stirring up environmentalists.

I also think it’s worthless to just talk about problems without talking about solutions. The “what are we going to do to fix it” is the most important part.

And, as you all know, the real hero in the environmental movement is Elon Musk who started Solarcity, the world’s biggest solar installer, the guy who made the electric car practical, and is now developing grid storage technology and building the world’s largest batter factory.

Having said that, here’s my review.

Unlike some of the junk Trek moves by J.J. – this is real Star Trek.

I didn’t see that coming. Discuss.

 

Tesla started delivering its Model 3 cars last night. I really like the clean interior look. This is their $35000 car which actually costs more than that in the real world but you would expect that. Still waiting to actually drive one. I was one of those who put $1000 down on the first day but not quite as much of a cult follower to say if I’m going to actually buy the car, resell it, or get my deposit back.

Elon’s delivery event was disappointing, poorly done with little information. He could use a new webmaster too as the online delivery was a disaster. However – some new information was revealed.

Trumpcare went down in flames last night. I take back all the bad things I said about McCain. I’m glad McCain will be remembered as the guy who did the right thing rather than the wrong thing.

Republicans should rejoice because it puts this behind them. They didn’t want the bill to become law anyhow. They were calling Paul Ryan for assurances that the House would never get to pass what they just tried to pass themselves.

If my cancer treatment works then I will contact McCain somehow and share it with him. Had he voted the other way I would have left him to mere doctors.

However – the new definition of a hero is when someone is expected to do evil and decides not to – they are a hero. Sad!

He speaks NO but votes YES. I’m betting he’s going to vote to screw the American People because even though he talks maverick, he votes Republican, always. McCain is in my prayers. But fortunately for McCain I’m an Atheist and no one is listening.

You will see over the next months a lot of talk about McCain as a hero and a maverick. But for now I want to talk about medical. McCain has a nasty brain cancer, a glioblastoma, that spreads fast. His odds are not good and between the chemo and the radiation treatments the amount of normal life he has left is probably not much.

Oddly enough, if my cancer treatment works, and it will be 5 weeks before I get that answer, it would have probably worked for McCain too. And that’s another discussion.

But what really counts is that McCain is a yes vote for Trumpcare and if McCain were an ordinary person and Obamacare were repealed McCain would be denied care. So while McCain gets the second best treatment available, he would vote to take that away from the rest of us. America might be better off if McCain doesn’t make it.

I would ask the question, is McCain’s like worth the damage he will do to America in the future? Is his life worth more than those who will die from being denied health care? That’s worth a conversation.

The Juice is loose! Or will be on October 1st. What will happen next? Is justice served?

Sales of recreational marijuana have blown past expectations in Nevada, threatening to leave some dispensaries with empty shelves. After Gov. Brian Sandoval endorsed a statement of emergency in the first week of legal sales, regulators are looking to bolster the supply chain.

The Nevada Tax Commission is meeting Thursday to determine whether the state has enough wholesale marijuana distributors; it could also adopt emergency regulations.

Nope, you didn’t bag Hillary that time either

There’s something insanely ironic about the whole “election hacking” thing and the Trumplett getting into trouble over this. We’ve assassinated foreign leaders, incited riots in far off lands, taught foreigners how to torture for fun and profit, bribed, blackmailed, and killed when it was in a corporat… er, um… our country’s national interest without hardly a whimper from the public. But this has us and the M5M pulling our hair out and screaming bloody murder for people just talking and possible influence pedaling because the dirt the woman claimed she had was just a ruse! Give me a break! We’re finally getting a minuscule dose of our own medicine.

President Donald Trump’s eldest son eagerly agreed last year to meet a woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic White House rival Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow’s official support for his father, according to emails released on Tuesday.

The emails, released by Donald Trump Jr., are the most concrete evidence yet that Trump campaign officials welcomed Russian help to win the election, a subject that has cast a cloud over Trump’s presidency and spurred investigations by the Justice Department and Congress.

Well, some of you know this and some of you don’t. Last August I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non- Small Cell Aednocarsonoma of the lung. It’s considered 100% fatal and 8 month median survival. That was 11 months ago. Since then I’ve been working on custom treatments and it appears to have worked. Possibly a complete cure. Here’s a letter I just sent out.

Talk about fake news. Trump makes up fake Time Magazine covers for his golf courses. Time asks him to take them down. What a loser!

As we untangle the mess that’s called the 2016 election we see that both parties are a celebration of stupidity and corruption. While we investigate Russian “meddling” in our election we are ignoring that we know from Wikileaks that Hillary cheated in her election with Bernie Sanders and that the core players who cheated are still in power in the Democrat Party. And saying vote for us because we are a little less corrupt than the Republicans is no longer good enough.

Meanwhile the Republicans are too incompetent to govern and the justice department has to wonder if they can prosecute a president who is too stupid to even understand the laws that he breaks with impunity. And as stupid as Trump is, the 16 other Republicans he ran against were actually even worse. We now have the Republicans, who are in the pockets of big money, fighting the Democrats, who are also in the pockets of big money, and they only thing that always seems to happen is that the top 1% always gets the tax break while the rest of us get stripped of medical protections.

I’m so disgusted that it makes me want to burn a flag. But I no longer think the flag is worthy of burning because America no longer has an meaning. So this 4th of July I’m going to hang the flag upside down because I think we can all agree, America is in distress.
