"Currently the number of government employees (many doing useless jobs, others meddling in our affiars) is about double the number of people in manufacturing. Something's totally upside down."

"There are a lot of security professionals who doubt the strength of those claims as well. The 'briefing' provided very little concrete information. It's not impossible that Obama got the report he wanted."

"In parts of our current PC climate, you would be called a 'racist' just for pointing this out. Jesse Huges (of 'Eagles of Death Metal'), the band that was playing at the Bataclan a year ago during the terrorist attacks has…"

jay H replied to Compelledunbeliever's discussion Statistics show that there are far fewer atheist in prison than theist, True, but totally wrong!
"There's another issue to: how do you define an atheist? We tend to think of folks like many of us who have come to some form of rational conclusion about the universe and decided there is no evidence of gods. But probably the majority of…"

jay H replied to tom sarbeck's discussion If the Electoral College Chooses Trump, Will It Have Failed in Its Purpose?
"I must admit I'm having fun watching all this. Before the election when Trump was questioning the results, Obama insisted that the elections were secure and it would be unpatriotic to question the results simply because you don't like…"

jay H replied to tom sarbeck's discussion If the Electoral College Chooses Trump, Will It Have Failed in Its Purpose?
"The concept of the EC was in part to keep any single state from controlling the federal government by giving each state a guaranteed minimum voice. In popular vote, California and Texas could pretty much control the country. But it appears that the…"

jay H replied to Compelledunbeliever's discussion It's not about Trump, it's a much better sign than it appears
"I agree that there is finally a growing resistance to the political  establishment (which included both the Democrats and the Republicans).  Details notwithstanding, Trump managed to completely shake up both parties at the same time (which…"

jay H commented on Randall Smith's blog post Farmers Markets
"Ultimately the cost of things is directly related to the labor involved. Labor intensive production, whether food, clothes, furnishings, whatever will always be a niche market, which gets most of its income from wealthy customers. To actually feed…"

"I should comment more that facial expression recognition is a deep, old instinct, a survival skill rooted deep in our evolutionary history (friend/foe, trust/distrust). It's cross cultural, became a necessity as tribal societies evolved. Even…"

jay H replied to k.h. ky's discussion Re; Hillary Clinton ....Smile !
"Remember that elections can be won or lost on facial expression and stage presence (Richard Nixon in 1960). (Unfortunately, Hillary is probably as corrupt or more so than Tricky Dicky.) [As a side point, ideological obsession notwithstanding, our…"

"The thing is, the attacks have been largely TRUE information. It's not like this is made up slander."

"Meanwhile DCLeaks (no connection to WL) had part of website taken down and Twitter suspended. Forget about Hillary, don't mess with Soros"

jay H replied to Daniel W's discussion Wikileaks: Data democracy or friend to tyrants and despots?
"It seems the people most crying about this now are the Democratic machine supporters. Roger Stone not withstanding (no, he is not part of WL) the information was NOT hacked by WL, they just posted it. That site just happens to be the most famous…"

jay H replied to Russell Pangborn's discussion Blasphemy Laws
"The problem is, most of those distinctions are subjective.. what's considered 'hate' is determined, not by rational process but by the agenda of whoever is in power. Maybe WE see a strong distinction between those two statements, but…"

jay H replied to Compelledunbeliever's discussion Atheist, What is your ax to grind?
"Good question. For me, atheism is only one (significant) component of who I am. I largely don't care if other people choose to be religious or not, as long as they're not being coercive of others. (I try to avoid the stereotype in the old…"

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

We live in a society of generalities: not all cyclists are rednecks and vice versa. No offense intended.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
