I’ve been paying close attention to the development of robots over the past several years. Robots are extremely fascinating to me, I guess because I have always been a sci-fi nut of sorts. One of the things that I hate about being old, is that I am not going to live to see robots reach their full potential. Once they are able to build an android that is fully autonomous, and has the ability to walk exactly like a human being, it’s going to be absolutely huge. At this point in time, they are building androids that look absolutely like humans. The developers have that part pretty much nailed. But the key is making them walk.

Obviously, the really scary thing about robots is they have no emotions, they do exactly as they are told. The programmers have emotions, so how do you keep the programmers thoughts from contaminating the robot’s brain? Well, you would have to have embedded algorithms, that would automatically cancel any bad information someone attempted to download. Sorta like Face Book. So, with that in mind, will the programmers be required to follow certain political guidelines. What if you purchase a android and you don’t like those guidelines, will you, as the owner, be able to change them. Probably not, the owner may actually instruct the android to engage in violence or hate speech.

The more I think about this, I’m pretty sure that the set protocol, would be that all manufacturers of androids would ship them to Google, void of any artificial intelligence. Google would be in charge of setting all behavioral parameters in androids. Considering Google’s current activities, it only makes sense. Google’s upper echelon have made it clear, they hold the keys to all knowledge, and know exactly what the perfect world would look like. The Silicon Valley will be the Garden of Eden for future generations.

I would wager, if androids were commonly found in homes, they would be listening to your every word, and watching everything you do, and reporting to a central data base. Sorta like NSA. They would be much more effective as they could record video, as well as record your speech. What a great way to control human beings. To make this all seamless, you would have to have an app on your phone. If you left home without your robot, then the phone could communicate your activities while you’re out and about, and the whole program’s complete. Wait a minute, I just realized my phone already does that.

Well the future looks like it may be pretty bleak, with all of the restrictions on speech and personal activities….. Damn, the more I think about this, we’re almost there now. The only thing missing is that lovely robot meeting me at the door in a negligee telling me how much she missed me.




What a shame, Donald Trump worked his tail off, created a wave of enthusiasm that all Republicans benefited from, and walked into the White House with a Republican House and Senate. There was one little problem. A big percentage of the Republicans were simply not going to play ball with the President. They were bent on following their own agenda, what ever the hell that was. Paul Ryan, the speaker of the house in the new administration, was a giant pain from the very beginning. You could see it, and hear it, in his sanctimonious statements, that he thought that President Trump was beneath him. That Donald Trump was an embarrassment to him and his fellow uppity Republican colleagues. They made it clear, they wanted nothing to do with Trump or any of his policies. Thus, because of these small minded idiots, they wasted the first two years of Trumps presidency, by sitting on their passive aggressive asses and quietly participating in the resistance with the Democrats. Paul Ryan made sure nothing happened that would benefit the President.

Donald Trump ran on two very important issues, securing the southern border, and repealing and replacing Obama Care. Both of these issues could have been accomplished easily in the first two years, but key Republicans didn’t want it to happen, although they campaigned on both of those issues. They basically lied to their constituents. I remember well, watching Paul Ryan’s half ass attempt at coming up with a new health care plan. You didn’t have to be a Phi Beta Kappa to figure out he was sandbagging it. I remember being totally pissed watching this idiot lie. He had absolutely no interest in doing that. I really think, that he would have rather died, than give the President a win.

The Republicans could have easily closed the immigration loop holes that allowed the “catch and release” policies of Barrack Obama and the Democrats. They had control of both houses, but again, that would have been a win for the President, and they just couldn’t let that happen. They could have overhauled the immigration system. They could have pulled out all of the stops and rammed it through the same way the Democrats did Obama Care. But no, their hearts just weren’t into it.

There is a commercial on TV for a dishwasher detergent. The mother is pre-washing the dishes before she puts them in the dishwasher. Her young daughter is perplexed, and asks the question, if you have to pre-wash the dishes, what exactly does a dishwasher do? Well after watching the Republicans for the last two years, I want to know, what exactly do Republicans do? The answer is easy…. not much. Because they dragged their feet and didn’t act on the President’s agenda, they are now in the back seat again. I’m beginning to think they like it that way.

The President may have saved the Senate, but in fact he really didn’t. We now have Mitt Romney, another useless twit. In reality, Mitt didn’t replace Orin Hatch, he replaced John McCain. Mitt Romney will never be the statesman that Orin Hatch was. Mitt is seriously handicapped, was born without a spine. There are another four or five Republicans in the Senate that are pretty useless as well. Until the Republicans become unified, and stand together like the Democrats do, they will always be sucking air. This is the reason I identify as an Independent. I’m choosy about the company I keep. I like strong people, with strong wills, and a well used moral compass.

So, this loud, brash, braggart from the Queens, that made the establishment Republicans cringe, turns out to be the most conservative president since Reagan. Donald Trump clearly loves this country with all of his heart, and wants to see America and it’s people strong and prosperous. He sincerely wants to see the United States out in front in world leadership. He doesn’t want young American men and women fighting in useless never ending wars. In my 77 years on this earth, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, in my opinion, have been the most pro American presidents I have seen. I pray the President remains in good health, we really need him for a second term. Maybe we can find some good Republicans to work with him and finish the job.
