The Fusion Future … Always the Future

So earlier this week, Lockheed-Martin announced a potential breakthrough in the field of nuclear fusion:

Hidden away in the secret depths of the Skunk Works, a Lockheed Martin research team has been working quietly on a nuclear energy concept they believe has the potential to meet, if not eventually decrease, the world’s insatiable demand for power.

Dubbed the compact fusion reactor (CFR), the device is conceptually safer, cleaner and more powerful than much larger, current

if you doubted that the usual idiots in the LSM have no clue

Then read the Yahoo story on how IS is now training pilots to fly combat aircraft:

BEIRUT (Reuters) – Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.

The group, which has seized land in Syria and Iraq,

Fans Across Florida

Whisky Tango Foxtrot.

In case you don’t want to watch the video, a bizarre scene unfolded in the Florida Gubernatorial Debate. Rick Scott refused to come out for the debate because Charlie Crist had a small fan inside his podium. It looked bad and played even worse. It was a huge political blunder, making the governor look petty.

But …

I find myself agreeing with Red State on this one:

But on the other hand,

No bad news for the demcorats until after the election…

The sycophants in the media, in order to protect the democrats and this criminal administration in particular, are also holding off on a lot of information that would be detrimental to the collectivist powers that be. Picking a replacement for that criminal Eric Holder? Not until after the election. The Secret Service scandals? Not until after the election. The whole Ebola disaster that’s unwinding right now as the CDC crashes & burns and the powers … Read more

Blaming Republicans Again

I know you thought that the current Ebola outbreak was the result of dysfunctional countries with horrendous health care systems. Or maybe you thought it was the fault of organizations like the WHO to respond quickly enough. Or maybe you think it’s no one’s fault and that disease outbreaks are going to happen.

But you’re wrong. The current Ebola outbreak is the fault of …. Republicans:

“Republican Cuts Kill” is the message coming from

The Davis Campaign Implodes

I haven’t been paying much attention to the Texas gubernatorial race because it’s been clear for a while that Greg Abbott was going to win. Not only is Texas a red state and Abbott clearly qualified, but Davis’ main qualification was filibustering an abortion law, which I didn’t see carrying much water outside of Austin. And, indeed, Abbott has maintained a double digit lead all year.

Enter desperation:

From the Department of Actual Facts, … Read more

The Right to Die

Brittany Maynard has a few months to live. Or three weeks, if she ends her own life on November 1.

For those of you who can’t or don’t want to watch the video, she has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. There is basically no chance she will live for more than a few months. She has moved to Oregon, which has a law allowing terminally ill people to self-administer drugs to end their own … Read more

We want to limit your stinking data!

If you own any kind of mobile device, you know that service providers are trying real hard to cap data usage even when you are fine paying their exorbitant prices, and basically claim that’s needed because it affects their infrastructure negatively. While some might actually think this makes sense, hard analysis says otherwise:

I won’t argue that data caps have no positive impact on wireless networks—they can prevent the most egregious overuse of what

There must be an election soon

And it looks like, just as we saw in 2012, the crooks in government beholden to the crime syndicate in DC, are cooking the books again. The unemployment numbers, especially the decline we are being told has happened recently, are bullshit. Things are just as bad, if not worse, than when the social engineering scheme the collectivists straddled us with – the one that encouraged the lending industry to give money to unqualified … Read more

The Latest White House Oops

You may remember the scandal, a few years ago, when Secret Service agents and military personnel in the President’s advance security detail in Colombia hired a few prostitutes. While prostitution is legal in Colombia, it was felt that the agents endangered security by their behavior. They were seeing these women and drinking heavily when they should have been preparing for the President’s arrival; they invited them up to their rooms in a security violation; they … Read more
