Here’s the latest reader rant, along with my reply!
X writes: Great article (this one) but I am afraid it will only get worse. You can’t keep hiring brain dead high school bullies and idiots who join the army so they can kill some “sand ni**ers” to our police departments or nothing will ever change. Now every TV show is either glorifying the FBI and their massive surveillance state or SWAT shows where the lead character has a chip, the size of tree, on his way shoulder against whites. Our mass media does everything possible to promote the police state. You should see the flak I get for objecting to generically calling all cops and soldiers heroes. I have said many times I am more afraid of cops than the worse SOB that I ever met. Please keep up the good work because we need people shouting from the rooftops.
My reply: I agree; it is almost certain to get worse – but that may be the necessary curative. Like having to hug the porcelain god for a day to let the food poisoned chicken you ate work its way through your system. In any event, I will not go silent, or mince words – or pretend it’s all dandy. I’m not good at practicing what Orwell called reality control. Besides, someone’s got to do it.
Might as well be me.
I can, because I have no wife or kids – so whatever descends upon me descends on myself only. Let them come. I will – as the captain of the Bismarck said – fire to the last shell and until the barrels glow from the heat.
Fish heads – served cold – for all AGWs and AGW apologists!

As a response to eric’s reply, “ditto”.
THAT NEW CAR SMELL?
Smells a lot like shit.
“This week at CES, the international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, a host of startup companies will demonstrate to global automakers how the sensor technology that watches and analyzes drivers, passengers and objects in cars will mean enhanced safety in the short-term, and revenue opportunities in the future.
Whether by generating alerts about drowsiness, unfastened seat belts or wallets left in the backseat, the emerging technology aims not only to cut back on distracted driving and other undesirable behavior, but eventually help automakers and ride-hailing companies make money from data generated inside the vehicle.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-tech-ces-monitoring/move-aside-backseat-driver-new-tech-at-ces-monitors-you-inside-car-idUSKCN1P219H
Thanks for that one, T. I have actually started to get wobbly about trying out a new car for the first time in my 54 years. That was just what I needed to get back to looking at 10-20 year old TDI’s.
