McCain Rants, What else is new?

Hotair quotes McCain’s floor speech:

We’re getting nothing done and the bombastic loudmouths on TV and radio aren’t helping.

I’ll make it simple for you, John. They are not elected. They didn’t make promises. They haven’t failed to deliver on their promises for the last twenty years. You are elected, John. You are responsible, John. Do you understand John? The problem isn’t them, it is the ancients in both parties that permeate the senate with a world view that is about seventy years out of date!

It is twenty years past time to resign Johnny. We didn’t elect you president, twice, for a reason. We don’t like you and what you try to claim as a moral high-ground rants.

You were a hero forty-five years ago and we do genuinely thank you for that, but we have suffered with your political self-important rants long enough. Retire and die at home. The United States Senate is NOT an old folks home, contrary to what all of the inmates believe.

Terminator in Real Life

Breitbart mentions that Kalishnakov, the famous producer of the AK-47, one of the most popular assault weapons ever, now has AI controlled killing systems. Not a test-bed, a line of ready for order units.

The unit uses a combination of communications to a central control site and an AI neural network. Yes, you read that right, the Ruskies have just give AI the power to shoot… Nothing could possibly go wrong! had more details:

The company revealed it had developed a range of combat robots that are fully automated and used artificial intelligence to identify targets and make independent decisions.

That part about “independent decisions” is the part that clearly indicates that the AI can kill you…

Usually, I would type something cute like, “I would like to be the first to welcome our AI machine overlords.”

There are quite a few AI platforms available for software developers. I’ve tried a couple and am still mystified, but others have used them successfully. The availability of automated, software controllable technology, think drones, cars, vacuum clears, any radio controlled mechanism is clear to everyone. Slightly modified weapons system, think firearms, bomb, and other nasty toys can be obtained by those who are determined to do so.

Think about the ramifications of the above paragraph. Any half-assed AI experimenter can already create a killing machine. It is no longer a question of if, but of when. Not when they will be created, it has happened. The question is when the first killings will take place. The genie is out of the bottle and it will never go back.

The world has changed. As with other disruptive technologies that allow the individual to open the gates of hell, the gates will be opened.

Think about a nut-bag who decides he has been bullied. How about my favorite nightmare nut-bag, the type who prays a lot and decides to kill infidels. Don’t even think about the Antifa types, the Black Bloc idiots, or any of the other anarchist dumb-asses.

A few AI packages, some software interfaces to controllable transportation packages, and an optional weapons package. Cars plowing into schools, churches, and mosques. Drones or radio controlled cars shooting kids on a playground. A “smart” Molotov cocktail with a programmed drone. Here is a scary one, an AI package, a radio controlled boat with an explosive package. I do not want to think about weaponized drones and commercial air travel!

To paraphrase Mr. Ollivander: I expect great things. Terrible things, yes. But great things.

Die Geister von Inverloch (#11)

Valerian und Veronique Number 11

Veronique beginnt in Nordschottland. Sie reitet Pferd mit Lady Charlotte, ein alte Freunde. Valerian ist auf ein sechsundswanzig mond in irgendwo. Er jagt für ein glapum’tiane. Die Shinguz, bieten Colonel Tloc der glapum’tiane, ein groß fische.

Es gibt viele leute. Ich verstehr nur ein bisschen. Erde un Galaxity sind verletzt?

Da sind viele Leute. Ich verstehe nur ein wenig. Baldrian hat eine neue Mission. Erde und Galaxität sind verloren.

Valérian muss sein Mission erfolßreich beenden. Was ist das mission? Ich weist nicht…

Sometimes the German reading goes well and sometimes it is crap on a stick. This one was the crap on a stick option! Lots of characters running around. Shinguz, Valerain, Veronique, Mister Albert, and a really nice glapum’tiane named Ralf.

I have no freaking clue what the hell happened. There was just so much crap that added nothing to the plot.

Game of Thrones, White Man’s Paradise

According to SJWs, the Game of Thrones series needs more black people. The SJWs may have a point, there really aren’t all that many blacks.

Since I’ve agreed with them, I’m going to want some social justice adjustments;

The Black Entertainment Network MUST immediately adjust its employee mix:

  • 72% white people
  • 12% black people
  • 16.3% hispanic
    (note that hispanic mixes can be used to cover two different racial quotas but illegals can not be used as substitutes for legal Americans.)
  • 4.8% asian

The congressional black caucus must make the same adjustments.

Once those two racist organizations have adjusted, we can discuss the Miss Black America people. I will also need to know what the existing racial percentages of faculty at Brown University and also the the so-called Southern Poverty Law Center. I’m pretty sure that BLM may also be a hotbed of racists beliefs.

While getting that together, someone will need to brief me on the personnel at the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. There are only nine employees and I doubt there is one black and I am curious if anyone actually knows who they are!

I expect immediate action!

No justice, no peace. Let freedom ring baby!

Evil goat gang leader caught on security video

direct link

I originally saw this in Gizmodo’s article, Extremely Unruly Goat Smashes Office Glass Door, Comes Back for Seconds. It is a video of a goat breaking two different planes of glass at a business. Bottom line, the goat is a real jerk.

Never has America been more at threat. Now marauding bands of goats are going around busting stuff up.

Beware the goat! Lets face it people, the kids are out of control!

Fox 32 had very good aditional coverage of the incident:

Police say it’s only a matter of time until the “kids” are caught.

“For 20 minutes he just sat and banged on that one side until he broke it, and then he left and came back and decided to break the other side too. I don’t know why. That was just to be mean I guess,”
Greg Cappert Engineer at Kryptane Systems
