Immigration Executive Action

POTUS is pushing the envelope with the open threat of an executive order to shield up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. A senior administration official has characterized the 5 million figure as being the upper limit of what the President is considering. A more realistic number is millions less. Despite that and the fact that no final document has been seen, media has seized upon that huge number as "the" number. So be it. The sturm and drang is no surprise to the White House, you could make a reasonable argument the information was leaked specifically to stir the pot by pulling the pin a guaranteed hand grenade. Immigration Reform Act of 1986 A bi-partisan bill was signed into law (click here) by Ronald Reagan to clean up some immigration issues. The Simpson–Mazzoli bill put some of the onus on employers to be sure their employees were not in the country illegally. It made it illegal for anyone to hire or recruit illegal immigrants "knowingly" and … [Read More...]

Is that the new Shoalts piece, Wilbur?

Note to David Shoalts: Get Bent

Some things never change. One is that the Stanley Cup seems to want to stay in the United States. Another is that David Shoalts will frequently return to the well of guaranteed partisan and enemy clicks with negative Arizona Coyotes stories. Also guaranteed? Actual facts aren't that important to Shoalts. He's pushed out a couple editorials in the Toronto Globe and Mail that coincided with the Leafs losing to the Coyotes. The pieces purported to dissect the finances and future of the Arizona Coyotes. Again. Some History DS has been writing about the Coyotes since the bankruptcy fiasco began. While his interest was initially perhaps rooted in deflecting interest from the … [Read More...]

PLEASE Get Your Flu Shot

Recently posted to Facebook is an article  “John Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccine”.  I want to point out that there are many news outlets that are only in the business of getting people to click on their page for the ad counters, and therefore they receive some sort of financial benefit. Before I get into the meat and potatoes of what I want to say I want this fact to be known; Influenza and it's complications account for up to 40,000 deaths annually in the United States.  That figure works out to 109.5 people every day if extrapolated out over a year. Also to be noted is that the article being cited in the webpage that was linked on Facebook, is based on a … [Read More...]

Bill For Barrett-Jackson? Over A Million

My top ten Barrett-Jackson rides for my own personal use was full of cars you could drive instead of parking in a museum. Had I populated my non-existent ten car garage with these things, I would have had to write a check for $1,020,350. Not bad, really! $495,000 - 1955 Talbot-Lago T-26 Grand Sport GSL Coupe I guessed this would be a a $200,000 car, I was wrong.It's on the list because of the way it looks, it's the right color and everything. If you complain it's not a driver, you'd be wrong because it's run five Colorado Grand and two Copperstate 1000 rallies. $20,900 - 1963 Pontiac Star Chief 4 Door Sedan This would need some air conditioning … [Read More...]

Secret Android Speedup WORKS

I'll admit I have yet to perform any scientific calculations on the effectiveness of the following change, I'd have to test it and then revert to the prior setup on my devices to do it correctly. Seat of the pants? This is a great change. You'll need to have Android KitKat 4.4.2 on your device for this to work. I believe right now that means having a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet. Oracle, Schmoracle Oracle sued Google in 2012 claiming that the basis for the Android operating system running Java, the Dalvik virtual machine, infringed on patents oracle had acquired with it's purchase of Sun Microsystems. Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]
