Dwindling posts

Ecclesiastes tells us there is nothing new under the sun, and while I normally avoid Christian mythology, I see no lies in that line. When I started this blog in November, I had so much to say. Ideas for blog posts were like a team of Athenas attempting to escape from Zeus’ skull all atContinue reading “Dwindling posts”

Pavlov’s electorate

The United States is still the United States. Nothing happened November 8, January 20 nor any other day since the election to change that. The same Democrats responsible for deporting people to hurricane-ravaged and cholera-stricken Haiti, and targeting entire families for deportation to Central America, now scream, “Sanctuary!” at the top of their lungs. TheContinue reading “Pavlov’s electorate”

My Twitter muzzle

I don’t think I’ve referenced this here yet, but for approximately a month Twitter has censored search results for any tweets containing this blog’s url, as well as any of my tweets containing a hashtag. Soon after discovering this, I tweeted Support about the url and hashtag searches separately and filled out a couple ofContinue reading “My Twitter muzzle”

SFPD’s performed reform

The Golden State Warriors’ hire of former SFPD Chief Greg Suhr as security consultant created work for many manufactured-outrage activists this past week, but couldn’t have been more business as usual. Team owner Joe Lacob is a Sand Hill Road venture capitalist and both Sand Hill Road and the Silicon Valley it funds have long beenContinue reading “SFPD’s performed reform”

A Medium fleece

Can’t say I didn’t warn you. Medium founder and CEO Ev Williams demonstrated the downside of dealing with the devil yesterday when he announced the blogging platform would fire a third of its staff and cease sharing ad revenue with creators. This despite Medium continuing to raise millions while overall tech funding remains stagnant. WhileContinue reading “A Medium fleece”

2016: Year of Entropy

Entropy is defined as “the degree of disorder or uncertainty in a system” or “the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity.” Though many words could describe the holy terror that was 2016, entropy was on my mind the entire year. No year in recent memoryContinue reading “2016: Year of Entropy”

Homelessness: San Francisco’s newest heist

Homelessness has long been an issue San Francisco has ignored in favor of well-funded “solutions” that inevitably fade into nothing but good intentions paving a road to Hell for the homeless people they’re allegedly created to help. As the San Francisco Chronicle leads a second round of mass exploitation of homeless people disguised as crusadingContinue reading “Homelessness: San Francisco’s newest heist”

Twitter’s Muslim-registry ruse

Twitter recently received praise for being the only of nine prominent tech companies to publicly refuse to assist the Trump administration in building a Muslim registry. While certainly a feel-good piece of news if you briefly glance at the headline, the reality is anything but. An enormous red flag is flapping away in the blogContinue reading “Twitter’s Muslim-registry ruse”

The myth of independent media

As MSM continues to deteriorate into irrelevance and subservience to the powers they pretend to check, the independent-media label is growing more desirable as media orgs attempt to distance themselves from being seen as anything remotely MSM. Independent media is a largely underfunded, under-promoted space, so when large media orgs decide to brand themselves independentContinue reading “The myth of independent media”

Anatomy of a tech-NPIC heist

With invaluable assistance from the NPIC, tech has been on a decades-long mission to assume the reins of power in municipal governments through turning over the electorate and privatizing public services. A recent opinion piece by San Francisco treasurer JosĂ© Cisneros provides an excellent opportunity to see how tech and the NPIC leverage city officialsContinue reading “Anatomy of a tech-NPIC heist”
