Today is Yesterday’s Tomorrow

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

Science fiction has predicted many of today’s realities from cell phones to tablets.  Many things that are today part of History like walking on the moon, organ transplants, and space stations were once flights of fancy.

Futurists build current events on a foundation of History to provide a launching pad for visions of what is to come.  One of the most widely recognized Futurists is Alvin Toffler whose seminal works include Future Shock and The Third Wave.  He is also the one who told us, “Change is not merely necessary to life – it is life.”

Have you ever heard of Ray Kurzweil?

If you haven’t you are about to.

The Wall Street Journal has described Kurzweil as “the restless genius.”  Forbes calls him “the ultimate thinking machine.”  He has been ranked by Inc. Magazine as #8 among entrepreneurs in the United States  He has also been called “the rightful…

Illinois passes bill requiring those under 21 to turn in their guns


As different states are looking at their gun laws in the aftermath of mass shootings, the Illinois State House and Senate passed a bill in late February that would require 18- to 20-year-olds to turn in their “assault rifles” within 90 days.

The Associated Press reports Democratic Rep. Michelle Mussman sponsored the bill, and it passed in the House 64-51.

If signed into law, it will prohibit people under 21 years old from buying or possessing “assault rifles,” high-capacity magazines, and .50-caliber rifles.

“There’s always the debate about whether or not it’s appropriate to have a discussion in the heat of the moment,” Mussman said on the House floor. “But I think that what we are seeing right now is a demand from the public that we stop kicking this down the road. That we actually do something about this.”

Who Needs The Truth?

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

Yesterday the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and issued its report.  However unless you search out alternative sources for the news you’d never know it.

What were their findings?

“The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren’t out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

After wall-to-wall coverage about the charges of collusion when the first investigation is complete and its conclusions released what do the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media do?  They basically ignore it except for a little backhanded criticism.

ABC’s World News Tonight gave the news 27 seconds.  “There’s late word coming in from the House Intelligence Committee that they are moving up to wrap up their Russia investigation? Republicans on the committee saying…

Knives for everyday

stormylntz and stuff

I am not a knife collector but I appreciate their usefulness for a daily carry item. I probably own 10 each of WR Case and GreatEastern Cutlery knives and 5 each of Leatherman and Victorinox multi tools along with a similar number of Schatt&Morgan pocket knives. Additionally I have a couple Benchmade, Spyderco and Emerson folders along with about as many CRKT knives.

I use all my knives for different tasks including general use,woodcarving,camping and security. For outstanding quality the pocket knives made by Great Eastern in 1095 or 440C steels cannot be beat.GEC ‘s workmanship is unrivaled for a production pocket knife. You will pay a higher price ( generally $80-150) but you will be impressed. For all around use though,WR Case makes excellent pocket knives for about half the price of a GEC and although not having as fine of workmanship as GEC, Case makes up for it…

You Should Be Laughing At Them!

A must read!!


You Should Be Laughing At Them!

They get us into wars and never get us out. They get us into debt and never get us out. They want to run your life, but couldn’t run a lemonade stand.

And they laugh at us?

They’re the establishment, the powers that be–call them what you will. Guided by the unshakeable belief that they’re entitled to rule, they’ve made a holy mess of America…and the world. Their Ivy League credentials only confirm that degrees are often bestowed on idiots.

In the Kingdom of Lies, ruled by the Arrogant and the Absurd, truth is an enemy. So are satire and humor. If the pompous proclamations and inevitable ineptitude of these bozos leave you unsure whether to laugh, cry, or emigrate, why not laugh?

What if the Fountain of Youth fell into the wrong hands?

If there were a way to reverse aging, the establishment’s…
