(On a personal note — I am in awe over the contrast between people’s belief in an imaginary rogue President Trump and the very real public ignorance  or concern that the United States has, at this very moment, 50+ nuclear weapons in jeopardy at Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base.  I’ve blogged, before, that Turkey is a Stupid Place for US to Store Nuclear Weapons.  Most people, when I ask, are unaware or don’t give a shit about the events that continue to unfold at Incirlik, including discussions about Russia being given access to the base.  I have no hate for Russia,  In fact, I admire Russia’s reserve and cool-headedness as the U.S. again ‘pokes the Bear,’ but the notion of Russia at Incirlik is significant.

I was in the Air Force during a different chapter of my life, and I worked exclusively with the Personnel Reliability Program (PRP) for a period of that time.   I really appreciate Scott Adams’  closing comments regarding the fiction of a rogue president initiating a nuclear strike.  There have been a few real close-calls though.)

Coffee with Scott Adams (08-26-2016)

“So, is this the most fun you’ve ever had watching a presidential election?  I mean — seriously — this is good stuff.”

This video may also serve as the video-companion to today’s Scott Adams’ Blog post:   Finding the Political Bottom.

“The United States and all its glory has managed to narrow the search for our leader down to two seventy year old racists.  That’s the best we had, and at 320 fucking million people — two seventy year old racists — or maybe a racist and a bigot if you prefer.”

Coffee with Scott Adams 08-24-2016

“I wrote two blog posts today –”

I expected him to elaborate, but he either spaced out, something came-up, or he just felt like leaving it at that.  Either way, here  are the blog posts:

  • When Periscope viewers commented on CNN’s viewership decline:   “I think CNN has no one to blame but themselves for being a little  more,  obviously, bias than they have in the past.”
  • Scott Adams doesn’t follow John Oliver — but I bet John Oliver has heard of Scott!

Coffee with Scott Adams 08-21-2016

Scott Adams began this Periscope broadcast by asking, “Is it my imagination, or is Hillary nowhere to be seen?”  Then, he asked for a [virtual] show of hands from the Periscope participants who too feel that Trump seems to be running unopposed as Scott has been predicting since last year.  There were many responses in agreement.  Were there too many?

This is the only time that the Periscope comments do not show in the playback.  Was that glitch?

In this broadcast, Scott talks about:

  • Trump possibly temporarily declaring U.S. post offices as Mexican embassies and offering illegal Mexican immigrants the opportunity to officially apply to reenter the country legally (or for deportation)
  • Because of the internet, Trump will be the first direct-democracy president
  • Hillary Clinton’s health
  • Media jumping the shark over Trump’s regret speech
  • The public’s fear of answering polls honestly
  • Blowback from naked Trump statues.  (“Does Hillary Clinton disavow the big, fat, naked Trump statues?”)

Turkey is a Stupid Place for US to Store Nuclear Weapons

By Dawn’s Early Light was based on William Prochnau’s novel, Trinity’s Child.

An aside note:  It’s the things we don’t know that frighten me the most.  I discovered some relatively unknown history about Turkish involvement with U.S. nuclear weapons while reading former Secret Service officer, Gary Byrne’s, Clinton tell-all.  Talking about his Air Force days as he establishes his his own credibility and character early in the book, Byrne writes:

“Arriving at Murtad, I learned that AFSP there had caught rogue Turkish officers trying to push an American F-104 Starfighter with a loaded nuke onto the flight line so they could steal a nuke and bomb Greece. Many Turks bitter about the Greco-Turkish War of 1919– 22 wanted a flash point to ignite a new war. I believe this was secretly why JFK took the nukes out of Turkey in 1962. Turks simply hate Greeks. We joked to each other, “Hey, if you’re not careful, I’ll tell the Turks you’re Greek!””

Beware Giving-Up Your Minds to Games like Pokemon Go

The Game (Star Trek: the Next Generation)

A lot of things that were mere speculation in the Star Trek franchise have come to fruition.  Check out the comments on this video after watching.  I’m not the only one thinking about this episode after the Pokemon Go craze started.

At which point will these enhanced-reality games evolve to a direct connection to humans? Will ‘enhanced reality’ be the next step toward transhumanism?

This episode of Star Trek (TNG) always bothered me.  The whole episode is available on Hulu.

Think about it . . . .
