Chilling Photobombs

Lord, I am so tired of all these click bait headlines on Facebook. They are all slow as Christmas and 90% of them have no original content. One page will put it together, and then 100 will copy it and promote it on Facebook. However, I do enjoy the actual content, if you can get to see it.

So, without further ado, I am pirating the “chilling photobombs” click bait headline and giving it my own touch.

Michael Reagan doesn’t think Trump can win California

The question I have, which I don’t think he addressed, is what Republican this year COULD win California?

I don’t think it’s possible any of them could have. California keeps lurching more and more to the left all the time. They still consider Nancy Pelosi and other socialists acceptable. No individual rights eschewing Republican will win California in the rest of my lifetime.

No news here. Move on.

ULA to begin human spaceflight in 2017

Today I was personally assured by ULA that they will be launching humans into space again from Cape Canaveral in 2017.

That was in response to my criticism of Charles Bolden announcing NASA needed to focus more on a destination for tourist travel.  I thought that was a clear indication of his ineptitude given the fact that since 2011 we’ve had a destination with no ability whatsoever to get people there.

That overwhelming fracking problem?

All we’ve heard for the last decade is the overwhelming, undeniable, evidence points to the fact that fracking has caused an increase in earthquakes in central United States.

No one can possibly question this statement of fact or risk being taunted in the exact same manner one would have been if they had the audacity to question global warming.  You’re a flat-Earther, Moon landing denier, you’re mentally challenged.   Seriously:

Now, the upside to this rather simple explanation for the increased earthquake issue is something the very simple-minded could understand, stop fracking.

There.

Problem solved.

However, as with almost every hot-button politically correct issue of the last twenty years, the problem is not what the activists think it is, and therefore, their solution won’t solve the problem.

This, is apparently the actual, real, problem:

Likely cause for recent southeast US earthquakes: Underside of the North American Plate peeling off

That sounds a lot more ominous than “stop fracking”.  However, that’s because it is.  As with “global climate change”, the underside of the North American plate peeling off into the Earth’s core is not something man is going to “correct” any time soon.  Blaming it on corporate America, greed, or Republicans won’t stop it.  Passing some bizarro tax won’t stop it either.  It has occurred since the dawn of Man and will continue long after our generations are gone.  And, if it does stop, so will mankind.

As with “climate change”, we’ll just have to figure out how to live with it since it will never, ever, realistically, go away.

The reality of this one is a lot simpler than proving the reality of man-made global climate change.  With the collapse of the oil industry, the fracking industry is dying a very rapid death.

By the end of this year, fracking production will be next to nothing.

How many people want to take the bet that the earthquakes will stop?

1999

Gotta have this one on the blog:

Prince had toyed with the charts, and was becoming pretty popular on MTV and the like due to his provocative stage personna. However, it was the album 1999 that put him on top of the pop world. And, it was this song that got him there. 1999 was mixed and sounded absolutely perfect in any disco or dance bar. I have no clue how many times I danced to this song.

Twenty years later, my very young boy, when I started introducing him to music, asked me to play this video for him every time. That’s when I started relaxing as a parent.

Kasich and Cruz join forces against Trump

The presidential campaigns of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced late Sunday that they were coordinating their efforts in three upcoming primary states in an extraordinary attempt to prevent Republican front-runner Donald Trump from clinching the GOP nomination before this summer’s convention.

Although it seems logical on paper, the big problem is this looks and sounds exactly like the conspiracy theory Trump supporters have been talking about for a year:  Kasich and Cruz will do whatever it takes to force a contested convention at which point the nomination will be handed to the candidate of the party’s choice.  The problem here is that is exactly what Kasich and Cruz are doing to keep any chance they have alive.

Kasich has nothing to lose.  He’s a lousy candidate.  He’s not exciting enough to get people to vote for him.  He realistically hasn’t won a single primary outside of his home state.  He really has no point of even being in the race at this point.  Seriously, he doesn’t.  This is his swan song.  This is the race he’ll be remembered for.  He won’t be a serious candidate for President in the future.  Especially by playing games.

Ted Cruz should have been smarter than to release this information to the general public.  After Colorado and Wyoming, where all of the delegates went to Cruz even though neither had a primary, it is apparent that Cruz is willing to rely on tricks of hand if popular votes won’t do it.  The majority won’t forget that.  After this race, my guess is, Ted Cruz is toast on the national level.  He’s not going to win this primary by any means, and people won’t forget how he tried to deny the popular vote and rely on establishment practices after running anti-establishment for a year.  He has already become what he has campaigned against.

The candidates colluding is not surprising.  It’s the only realistic chance they have left.  All they can do at this point is prevent Trump from getting 1,237 before the convention.  Being so open about it is stupid against a populist candidate like Trump.  How long do you think it took for Trump to turn it against them?

Almost as fast as it took to broadcast the headline.
