Truly we are on a new frontier–tech, surveillance, censorship, terrorism (however you define it!)…we don’t know the impact electronic devices will have on our kids, we don’t know what they’re watching, with whom they are communicating…we don’t know what their future world will look like – will they even need to know how to drive? How can we help them protect their health as plants now include animal genes and plastics and teflon (not to mention chemicals designed to kill plants and animals alike!) touch all of their food…as dialectics replace founding principles and all their books (and much more!) could disappear the moment the grid goes down…
How do we prepare our children to be safe, happy, good, strong, loving, principled, successful, generous, trusting, trustworthy, creative people, and everything else we want and hope for them, when we have no experience or understanding of the very different world they will face–face already–from the world we grew up in or our parents before us–which in turn was too different for many of them to really help us through this Age of Upheaval.
It’s daunting parenting here on the frontier….
Since shortly after the event it was clear what happened to MH370 despite months and millions of a “search” that was nothing but deception. The true purpose is not yet clear, but if you want to know what happened to that plane, read what I wrote about it in real time four years ago–nothing has changed.

Time and time again, I have seen The Wall Street Journal explain that the reason Russia and China are so together and are such a big threat to us is that they have the luxury of being totalitarian dictatorships that can get ‘er done without the fussy inconvenience of individual liberty or consensual government. Well, the Journal is at it again, but this time they are behind the times…the CIA’s InQTel venture capital firm is ALL OVER AI! (Who’s the authoritarian dictatorship now, huh?)
Here’s the article from yesterday’s Journal that triggered me…the title in the print edition was merely, Authoritarianism Is China’s Edge in AI–but they really spoonfeed it to you right up top on-line which included an in-your-face subtitle:
Senators Reject ‘New Wave’ Unverifiable Voting Systems

Senators Reject ‘New Wave’ Unverifiable Voting Systems
ATLANTA GA – The Georgia Senate took its first major steps to move toward voter-marked paper ballots on Thursday. The Ethics Committee voted to abandon both unverifiable electronic voting and “new wave” technology that counts votes in computer-generated barcodes rather than human-readable marks. In a landmark decision during a Senate Bill SB403 hearing, the committee voted unanimously to require any future ballot marking devices used in Georgia to produce voter verifiable and readable marks that are tabulated for results.
Some ballot marking devices employ a touchscreen to create bar coded selections
of voter choices that are interpreted internally by a scanner and accumulated when the votes are cast. The unverifiable bar code technology, promoted by certain vendors and the office of the Secretary of State, enables a “new wave” of hacking possibilities and significant potential for undetectable errors.
At the hearing, Senator Michael Williams proposed a VoterGa recommended language change requiring scanners to tabulate only human readable and voter verifiable marks from any ballot marking devices that may be employed in the future. The committee passed his amendment unanimously.
SB403 sponsored by Senator Bruce Thompson, requires the Secretary of State to begin the process to replace Georgia’s unverifiable voting equipment. The bill also passed the committee unanimously on Thursday after being amended.
Lobbyists for at least one voting system vendor have claimed that language requiring verifiable ballot marks would eliminate them from the future bid process. However, two of the state’s long time election integrity advocates, John Fortuin and Garland Favorito testified they believe the motive behind such a claim is just to sell Georgia much more expensive equipment. They contend all vendors who demonstrated systems in a House Science and Technology hearing last year can also offer Georgia cost effective, verifiable voting systems that they have already installed successfully in other states.
Some vendor lobbyists may continue their push to sell unverifiable voting systems since Georgia election law is complicated, somewhat redundant and prone to loopholes. House bill HB848 that is similar to SB403 but does not have the same voter protections, is expected to receive a hearing in the Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday afternoon.
Yet another school shooting gets instantly politicized and while the left and the right argue the same talking points, many are wondering what really happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and why. We analyze some of the Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s statements, including his desire for the power to detain people over social media posts…involuntarily. We also play former CIA and FBI agent Philip Mudd’s fake crying, tangental rant as well as one of his classic’s “I’m a proud s-holer!”
