Back to the basics

Just putting some thoughts to paper. errrrrrr, zero’s and one’s. Why is it that when there is already law dealing with discrimination…. that we make new laws dealing with discrimination. Because when we do that we must then create jobs to monitor those special interest anti-discrimination laws. And the government must then raise taxes to pay for the representatives who have their staff, supporters and someone has to pay for all of those think-tanks and polls…….. ad nauseam.

And once those jobs are created, because they are federal and state jobs…. they are almost self-perpetuating. Why do we time after time think this is the best solution to some problem? If it is against the law to discriminate in the first place, why aren’t we then filing discrimination charges against the people who are committing these acts? And yes, it is this easy. It’s politicians and lobbyists that tell you it can’t be done.

It starts getting to the point that people are almost forced to invent data to prove that their position is still viable. Because if you aren’t showing results then you will not get good reviews. You won’t get fired. It’s extremely difficult to fire state and federal employees. But you may get “moved” around a lot.

If people aren’t willing to stand up for what is correct then we are doomed to just repeating our failures. It’s time to stop doing that. it’s time to get rid of the too big to fail. It’s time to stop “creating” jobs. Maybe if we just started helping each other a bit more, every day… we wouldn’t need to have committees, forums, polls, and entire government organizations trying to divide and conquer. Never mind the consequences, it’s the win that matters. Have we truly become so very shallow?

have we always been this shallow?

All too often we will choose “style” over “substance”, and in doing so we waste our very sustenance.

Welcome to the Digital Age

 

 

Welcome to the Digital Age.

 

At 59 years of age I have witnessed things that dreams are made of. When I was going to high school I would go home after school and watch Star Trek.

Science Fiction at the time, but there are many things that have come to pass. And in some cases have surpassed even the dreams of those days. The USB flash drive that we take for granted now is a good example. So, now we are in the digital age. Basic laws of physics: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Just summarizing to get some thought together.
1. You log onto Facebook. Everything appears normal. There are those times when it seems that the postings are just a bit behind. Never more than a day or two though. And, then it would catch back up. So of course as every naive or overly confident idiot would do…… I just flushed it aside and didn’t give it another thought. Until…….

 

What if?

Would anyone even have the wherewith all to know what happens when you click “enter” while posting on Facebook? Welcome to the digital age where everything is instantaneous, and everything is routable. It’s not like analog, in digital you can transform data in real-time. Nobody even wants to ask these questions, because nobody wants to think of the possibilities.

another thought: If I am just thinking of this then others have already thought and acted upon these very ideas. Nobody reads the EULA’s. Is what you expect (believe) to be happening….. really happening? Look, by the governments own admission nobody has a right to expect that anything transmitted over the internet is secure. Does anybody “re” route? Coding is important. At this point in the evolution of man coding and digital manipulation is more important than anything else. Knowledge is power, but only if you can use that knowledge.  Learn to Code. Learn to Manipulate. Learn to Mold. Learn to Shape. Learn to Transform. Learn to Code.
