Why mainstream media's slander of wall street bets pisses me off regarding GME.

This is interesting.


I think that Gamestop will eventually go out of business.  There is a very strong trend toward buying or renting videogames off of the internet.  Retail sales of games can't last more than a couple of years.   Video is headed in the same direction.

Games were distributed on media because that was the only practical way to transfer large data.  Storage of the data was also an issue if you had a bunch of games.  These are no longer limitations.


Cuomo quote was prescient on June 3

From: Larry Trout 

Now too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets: persistent, poisonous inequities and injustice," Cuomo told his viewers. "And please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time."

Officer PASSES AWAY due to Capitol Hill attack


Trump and his supporters have every right to express their political opinion about the legitimacy of this election. This has nothing to do with inciting violence or a mob. That vast majority of Republicans by far do not even remotely condone this kind of behavior. Because a few idiots did some really stupid behavior does not put guilt on those expressing their legitimate political grievances.

Computer processors

We have spent at least 35 years dependent upon Intel microprocessors or equivalent from AMD. A quiet revolution is happening where both hardware and software are switching to ARM Risc processors, giving great performance with lower power consumption and more battery life on portable devices. It is about damn time! There is now more choice in the marketplace, and the software makers aren't forcing you to use just one type of processor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhESSZIXvCA

The Capitol Was STORMED! - Everything You Need To Know


The Rush Limbaugh Show From December 23rd

This was Rush Limbaugh's last broadcast of 2020, right before Christmas.

The show was significant in a few big ways.  I felt compelled to listen to it about 3 times.  

He acknowledged his stage four lung cancer diagnosis, and that he wasn't supposed to live this long.  At the end of the program, he mentions that eventually he will be unable to do his program.
He begins and ends the program by expressing his gratitude to the audience and all those who have helped him.

The two main topics of the program were the COVID relief bill and the senate runoff.

A doctor from Sandiego called with his concern about illegal immigrants bringing COVID into the country and spreading it.

One lady called in with a negative perspective feeling that the Democrats have taken over, with fraud, and there was nothing that we could do about it.  Rush jokingly referred to her as "Debbie Downer." 

In a very candid moment, Rush said that he had spent 30 years telling people about the benefits of freedom and not to vote for liberals, and he felt that ultimately he failed.

An emotional man called in who said that he found Rush's voice comforting because it reminded him of his father.  Rush said that he could relate to this because of his relationship with his own father.

China Shocked The World By Planting Billions of Trees...Our Turn!

Plants take CO2 out of the atmosphere.  All plant material is eventually consumed or decays, which is another form of consumption by bacteria and fungus.  This consumption puts the CO2 back into the atmosphere.  A small amount of it might be buried.  Trees are a reservoir for carbon that can last decades or centuries.  This might be useful because according to what I have heard most fossil fuels will run out by the year 2100.
