What Keeps Me Awake at 4 a.m.

Why don’t palm trees blow over in hurricanes?

How do hurricanes affect underwater currents compared to surface currents?

How much wind does it take to move a NATIONAL OCEAN AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION buoy?

Which type of windmill is more efficient?  Vertical or horizontal?

At how many feet does water reach 55 degrees f.?

Does junk on the waters surface affect wave heights or force?

Could tidal action turn turbines like water wheels.  And would they affect wave hight and force?

Could artificial grasses and bamboo protect coastlines from storm surge like wetlands?

SILVER LINING

Ever since the election I have been searching for it.

Now, I realize that all those people who voted against their own self-interest will now have to suffer through the next four years the same as I will. Only I will have the satisfaction of knowing that I wasn’t scammed, hoodwinked, had the wool pulled over my eyes, lied to, cheated, victimized and made a sucker.

  NOT JUST TRUMP’s 

inauguration that I urge boycotting tomorrow.

We should boycott:

TV (other than non public channels which don’t carry news in any form),
Facebook,
Twitter, or
Tumbler.

This boycott is about all four branches of government that no longer serve the betterment of we the people.

That’s correct, the four branches: the executive, the legislative, the judicial and (the one not specifically cited other than in the first amendment) the fourth estate.

All four have failed us, the people.

The executive branch has failed to use all the powers at its disposal for us.

The legislative branch has failed to pass laws that were needed to get us out of the recession in a timely way and instead has focused in obstruction for political purposes.

The judicial branch has failed to uphold the constitution.

And most importantly, the fourth estate has failed to report the news choosing entertainment and ratings to factual reporting.

All four of these institutions live in their own bubbles. This boycott on the 20th of January 2017 is meant to burst those individual bubbles and let them know that we will no longer stand for their failures to carry out their respective constitutional jobs “in order to form a more perfect union”.

No elected official should leave their office richer than they entered.

No news agency should be reporting unconfirmed news or possible news in order to improve ratings and their bottom line.

Social media must address what their function is to be as part of the fourth estate. If they refuse to monitor what is published on their sites, then the federal government may need to provide guideline or enforce those that are already on the books.

This needs to be a shot across the bow. The citizens of this country arewho they must serve; not their donors or advertisers.

I urge all my fellow citizens to boycott all news related media tomorrow.

IT IS TIME!

Why the military needs to be quaranteed is simple.

The military is there erecting facilites and as support for the medical professions treating Ebola patients.  They are not working in hazmat suites.  They are, therefore,  more exposed.

The state department employees would have little or no contact with and therefore little exposure to Ebola.  Ergo, they would not need quaranteen, but rather monitoring.

Medical professionals should be guided by best medical practices, not a politician’s bullying.

Jeesch!

Hey, Republicans

When you say “I am not a scientist.”, stop right there. You have just admitted you have no credibility on the subject; we really don’t care what your opinions are.

You’re a member of Congress.

You are a Republican.

We know you don’t believe in facts.

Don’t waste oxygen and increase our carbon dioxide problems by continuing.

My List of Takers

GE, big oil, corporate agriculture, Congress, air lines, railroads, Koch Brothers, and these 20 people who brought down the economy according to Time Magazine. (Please let me know what happened to them?)   Surely, they are in jail or barred from doing business.
