America’s News Shortage, Econ Data

Columns lately have been a little on the namby-pamby side. But, now that the dust is settling in D.C. as another load of dirt comes in, two issues scream. Trump Saved Crooked Media The first is the pending lack of “news” in America.  Depending on where you consume your daily dose of hypnotic repetition, the pending news shortage may – or may not – be visible.

ATR: Ramping Up 3D Printing

Disruptive Making In Sight? If you’re an adventurer, time to put “another one on the pile.” Since I’ve done so much in life already (multiple careers, kids, sailing, flying, inventing, computering, writing, webbing, building, metalwork, solar, engineering, broadcasting, scuba, turning…well, the list goes on for a while…) it’s NOT like there’s any shortage of things to do around here… But, since there’s  magnificence in Madness (and mine  is considerable) it became clear that one more …

Refried News – and a Side of Woo-Woo

Not just a hell of a lot going on – leastwise that one could fairly call  news.  Most of the headlines today are of the roll-over, filler, lather-rinse-and-repeat variety.   Dow futures down 40, but it’s a “Who cares?” to us.  For now.  Waiting for this pig of a market to get some momentum going…  Leaves us reduced to writing about?

COVID-19: The Space Ship Problem

Don’t look now, but there are huge things going on that most people are not tying together.  Since it’s the weekend – and you may not feel like going to work tomorrow, let’s do some “intelligent speculating,” shall we? The timing of the COVID outbreak is extremely interesting when taken with a dose of UAP.  Which is?   Unexplained Aerial Phenomenon.  Moreover, the disclosure – that UFO’s are real – is being carefully managed by …

China Supply Problems? Blame Lawyers & Greedsters

Regardless of the happy-talk about how COVID-19 will (do this, or that, or  some other thing), there’s a lessor in here about Lawyers, Lefties, Greedsters, and Cowards that warrants in-depth study.  This being Social Studies Sunday…. Ure hit one of his favorite online suppliers this week, looking for a refill of some shop consumables.  1/16th inch bronze brazing rod.  Sure enough, a 20 piece container appeared, but seeing a 50-piece box was listed, I tried …
