My chat with Elon Musk AI on FTL Space Travel The immense power of AI is being wasted. Yes, it can, and has, been used to create astounding pictures, even videos. It has been used to generate stories, articles, and text answers to any questions that humans ask one another. But it's this last part that needs exploring, or exploding, perhaps. Here, a FTL spaceship is discussed with Elon Musk AI. Did we succeed?

It's time to retire the city and state retirement funds 95%-100% of city and state pension funds will never go to pensioners; they are simply rolled over every year. Why are centi-billion dollar pension funds that make 0%-5% net after fees and excluding contributions being kept at all?

Cannabis Dreams going up in Smoke The following are my personal observations over the course of a year or two as cannabis has been gradually legalized, from small usage to quasi-legal pot shops to the first legal weed shop last December.

Some of the tribe of lawyers are already getting sanctioned, and some commentators say MAGA = Make Attorneys Get Attorneys. Every single person who challenges the results of the 2020 election should read at LEAST the Wikipedia summary of the Bush V. Gore election: Bush v. Gore - Wikipedia

Speak Up For Assange celebrates its 3rd Anniversary by Speaking Up for Assange Julian Assange continues to languish in torture-like conditions in Britain's notorious Belmarsh prison, pending appeals and despite having long past his sentence for trying to escape deportation to Sweden for charges that have long since been dropped.

The Abortion of the United States The state-by-state loss of birth choice effects much more than the individual right of when or if for a woman to have a child. The situation is fluid, brand new - though anyone who was paying attention to the supreme court arguments and the leaked Samuel Alito opinion last Spring should have seen this coming. The effects on the country will go far beyond the Right to Choose.
