The NFL Social Justice League is Taking a Hit

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 16:57:08 +0000

The NFL continues to dig a deeper hole: Week 13 doesn’t appear to be the National Football League’s lucky number as photos of stadiums across the league still show an awful lot of empty seats. Meanwhile, the sad in-person attendance mirrors the continually plummeting TV ratings. Source: Empty Seats Greatly Outnumber Spectators As NFL Attendance […]

Modern vs Classical Liberalism

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 01:51:32 +0000

A good description of the contradictions faced by modern liberalism (more commonly referred to as Leftists or Progressives): Modern liberalism, though, is very much an intentionally devised system. (That’s modern and not classical liberalism; the latter is something closer to capitalism.) Modern liberalism is a loosely configured set of ideas and attitudes. […] What modern […]

It’s always a great day when you can go bicycling outdoors in Ohio in early December.  My buddy and I did roughly 23 miles on the famous Dayton River Corridor in 52F weather.   Not too shabby…

This is an interesting development: Chromebook users looking for an alternative to Google’s set of editing tools can now turn to Microsoft Office, which is finally available on Chromebooks. The suite of office apps—Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Outlook—has been available on macOS, iOS, and Android devices, but Chromebooks have been left out of the picture […]

When Claims Lose Any Meaning

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 06:05:49 +0000

In the world of engineering and manufacturing we often say “when everything is high priority, then nothing is high priority”.   It’s a way of stating that you have to clearly stratify the differences in your observations and claims.   I suppose the political equivalent of this lack of differentiation is when everyone claims that anything that […]

Ohio Sports Weekend

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 21:49:28 +0000

I would have to say it was a pretty fruitful weekend for our sports teams…  We attended two Wright State Raiders basketball games in addition to one Dayton Flyers game.  All of these contests had the home team winning.  In addition, the Ohio State Buckeyes, Cincinnati Bengals, and Columbus Blue Jackets were all winners as […]

Kasich Believes in… What?

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 01:05:28 +0000

I’ll bet that there are many Ohio citizens that can’t wait until Kasich leaves office: It’s time for lawmakers to get into a room and figure out some sort of solution on gun control, Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Sunday. In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Kasich said the recent shootings in Las Vegas […]
