Hillary gets more nutty each day

The Daily Mail shares Hillary’s descent into madness with us.

Hillary launches astonishing conspiracy claim that Trump won the election because he ‘colluded’ with 1,000 Russian agents who filled Facebook with ‘lies’ and Twitter with ‘bots’

Clinton says her defeat isn’t her fault as she claims Russians and ‘forces in this country’ were out to defeat her

She claims 1,000 Russian agents were filling Facebook with ‘lies’ and the ‘majority’ of news on it was ‘fake’

Clinton said she was certain someone had ‘colluded’ so the Russians knew what fake news worked and added: ‘I’m leaning towards Trump.’

Also blamed her own party for having poor-quality voter data, claimed she was the victim of misogyny, and that she was kept off the air by TV networks

The Daily Mail was kind enough to list all of the crap she has used up to this point to blame everyone but herself;

  • The FBI
  • James Comey, then FBI director
  • The Russians
  • Vladimir Putin
  • Anti-American forces
  • Low information voters
  • Everyone who assumed she’d win
  • Bad polling numbers
  • Obama for winning two terms
  • People wanting change
  • Misogynists
  • Suburban women
  • The New York Times
  • Television executives
  • Cable news
  • Netflix
  • Democrats not making the right documentaries
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Wikileaks
  • Fake news
  • Content farms in Macedonia
  • The Republican Party
  • The Democratic Party

My question, do all of the above qualify as “deplorable” and “irredeemable”, or is that a different bunch?

She is going insane. It will be interesting to see if there is anything left of her limited mental resources by 2018!

Hillary’s brain is turning into Jello. She and the pussy-hat marchers deserve one another.

William Shatner Gets It Right

In a recent interview, the Daily Beast kept trying to get him to join George Takkei and J. J. Abrams in their insane hatred of Trump, he refused.

William Shatner, not noted for his diplomacy, gets it. He refused to Trash Trump. He said, I am a visitor here. I love America, I love it here. I’m apolitical.

Hollywood needs more apolitical actors who understand that they are for entertainment purposes only.

Good job Mr. Shatner.

Naturally, George and J.J. have never really spoken out about the killing by Muhammadans. You would think that at least George, an advocate for gays, would stand and say something about the religion that believes in killing gays. Do you hear the sound of crickets? Isn’t it amazing how these Hollywood types will only attack conservatives and Christians? Sorry George and J. J., but you have no credibility with those who think.

These are not the droids you are looking for, or are they?

The Guardian has an article, German ‘robot priest’ helps mark Reformation anniversary. The ‘robot priest’, named “BlessU-2”, can deliver blessings in five languages. The robot is part of an exhibition to celebrate the 500 years since Martin Luther wrote Ninety-five Theses.

Atlas Obscura points out:

As it says in the Book of Romans, “Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.”

The robot has that covered!

Watch a typical interaction:

The Daily Mail has an article, Fall in love with Harmony: World’s only ‘talking’ sex doll has 18 personalities, answers your questions and even remembers your favourite meal’. Real Doll just keeps innovating!

Watch an interaction (definitely NOT a typical interaction, I assume!):

The sex robot AI package, and a cute package it is, makes me ask the following question, how good is the AI? I know iPhone is going to be putting a simple AI in the next version of the phone. I know Google’s AlphaGO just won against the world’s best GO player. A lot of companies are highly motivated to start packing simple AI into their products. The doll already has speech recognition and is capable of generating verbal output.

I would love to see one of the Real Dolls naked. By that I mean without the outer “skin”. I would love to see the skeletal framework. I will bet it is one hell of a construction.

Creepy or not, it is damned interesting use of technology!

When are they going to fit the BlessU-2 with AI?

I found it fascinating. Draw your own conclusions.

Lib-tards to have gig in Manchester

Daily Mail has an article about Ariana Grande joining with Katy Perry, Mily Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Usher, and who knows else, to have a benefit gig for victims of terror attack.

Riiight.

This is going to do what?

Will it stop ONE terrorist? No.

I’m thinking someone might want to check the books when it is over. I’m thinking that, by the time these lib-tards get done, the money will go to the local mosques…

L.A. Tinderbox

Reading the article, L.A. Mayor Worries Trump Immigration Crackdown Will Incite Riots: ‘I Fear a Tinderbox Out There’, makes me ask the following question.

If the Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti fears that immigration crackdown will set-off the illegals, WHY THE HELL WOULD HE WANT MORE ILLEGALS?

Here is an idea. Lets deport the illegals. No more illegals, no more problems.

“I fear a tinderbox out there, where people will suddenly say no and try to defend… keep that person from being taken. That’s a very dangerous situation.”

His solution, ban ICE! If it is dangerous, it is because the illegals feel entitled. I wonder how that situation came about…

“If sanctuary city means your police force will not be deputized or will take it upon themselves to enforce immigration law, then absolutely we are and proudly so,…”

Dude, I think I see the problem! When the law is “optional” so is compliance. A lack of compliance can be described as anarchy and lawlessness. Do you see the connection? Do see where you might want change your approach? Of course you don’t, and that is the REAL issue. If there is a tinderbox, you are the one who provided the fuel for the fire. Enjoy the flames.

3rd Carrier Group to Korean Area of Operations

I was reading an article, Sources: 3rd US Naval Strike Force Deployed to Deter North Korea. My question: isn’t there a rule that once you deploy not one, not two, but three entire carrier groups that you MUST knock off the little dictator?

I’m pretty sure there is a rule about that…

If we don’t eliminate him, I am going to be very disappointed.

Sec Def James Mattis, on Face the Nation, had some interesting comments;

“The North Korean regime has hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers within range of one of the most densely populated cities on earth, which is the capital of South Korea…”

“But the bottom line is it would be a catastrophic war if this turns into a combat if we’re not able to resolve this situation through diplomatic means.”

Am I the only one wondering just high we can ramp it up without shooting? In all honesty, the North Koreans don’t look like they are going to back down. Now that there are three aircraft carrier groups, I don’t think we can either. Put simply, neither side can back down now. Barring a diplomatic master-stroke, there are now two possible outcomes. Either Trump backs down and loses all credibility, or he pulls the trigger and lets the chips fall where they may…

The Hill reported on April 2, 2017, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in an interview on Fox News’s “Special Report with Bret Baier”said;

“Well, we’ve got to see a real change on the part of the posture of the regime in North Korea. … We will wait as long as it takes, as long as the threat is manageable,”

“…studies have indicated that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un makes rational decisions and is not unstable.”

“All indications, Bret, by intelligence agencies … are that he is not crazy. He may be ruthless, he may be a murderer, he may be someone who in many respects we would say by our standards is irrational, but he is not insane,”

“We have been very clear: We do not seek regime change in North Korea. We are not seeking a collapse of the regime; we are not seeking to find some excuse for an execrated reunification of the peninsula. What we are seeking is the same thing China has said they seek — a full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,”

Let me get this straight. By our standards irrational, but not insane… You have GOT to be F**king kidding me! It makes me so much more comfortable knowing that the murderer is merely irrational. Thank goodness he isn’t insane!

Maybe I’m completely misreading this one, but I think it is going to go hot soon.

Memrise Meminence ranking

I use memrise.com a lot. It is one of my preferred language learning sites.

It has been about two or two and a half years.

Memrise Meminence award

I’ve finally made it to the “Meminence” ranking, which is nice.

More importantly, you will note the “5,619” words learned statement. It is interesting because is a massively low-balled number. They count every phrase as a “word”. Since lots of the language courses teach more than single words on a card, the 5,619 is way low. Note I’m am not unhappy about that.

So far, I’ve renewed my contact with Spanish. Learned more German, which STILL has a long way to go. I’ve started playing with French. I’ve gone through the ASL finger spelling course and the braille course. I’ve gone through at least two Toki Pona courses, for all the good that that did me. I am going through a Heisig Kanji course and have gotten through maybe 400 characters. Hiragana and Katakana have also been conquered, with lots of bumbling still involved in the review quizes. I touched LIGHTLY on the Korean characters, Hangul. I’ve decided to come back to that when I have more time. If I was still subscribed to Hulu and watching all of those made in Korea movies, I would give it a higher priority. Even if you don’t speak the language, being able to sound out the words can sometimes be interesting.

The next highest ranking is at 50,000,000 points. Given the current rate, I could achieve that ranking in the year 2025.

The real test comes down to what have I actually learned. My Spanish is much better and my German is weak but usable. I think I could carry out basic interactions in Spanish without issue. The German would be messy but doable. My French is at about 400 words which has some use but not much. I can read braille but I have lots of trouble feeling the braille. I have to slowly feel each character and decoding which bumps are there is maybe 70% on a good day, 40% on a bad day? My ASL finger-spelling is fine. I read the book “I Am Number Four” in an ASL finger spelling font. Yes, you read that correctly! So I think that I might not have a lot of speed, I can understand and use finger-spelling. When I sound out Katakana and Hiragana, I make mistakes. Sometimes I nail it, many times I at least get somewhere in the ballpark.

Some people ask why I bother since I really have no desire to talk to foreigners. I learned Spanish because there are enough speakers in my area to make it potentially useful. If I lived in some parts of California, I would pick up either Korean or Mandarin, depending on which was used more in the area that I was in.

I have learned some German to read German books. I have access to quite a few German sci-fi books and I want to eventually read them. Can you say Perry Rhodan with a volume count of 2,500 books? I’ve read the first 130 in English, but the others were never translated. I have access to many of those untranslated volumes.

Learning a bit of sign language has been interesting and a great way to analyze just how we communicate. While I will never have the vocab to really get the job done, I can handle the rudiments of ASL.

Toki Pona was another proof of concept language. I have never seriously tackled a conlang and I figured one with only 130 words would be fun without being a nightmare. If I were much younger, Esperanto would have been a necessity!

The Kanji is useful when a Kanji character pops up in a Japanime production. It can be fun to actually have an idea as to what is on the screen. I have no real use for Kanji, but I find the characters fascinating. My goal is to eventually get through the entire Heisig collection of about 2,500 characters. No pressure, no rush.

Stand by. I will try to update you in 2025.
