Cartoon Shows Why The "Latte Salute" is Not the Real Issue | The Federalist Papers

From 2012 after Obama decided to pullout of Iraq completely:
Bottom line in Iraq: President Obama did not end the war. He simply departed the war – he quit. The fighting in Iraq continues, al-Qa’idah in Iraq – virtually wiped out by American forces in the last years of our involvement – has re-emerged as a threat, and the country has grown much closer to the Shi’a-dominated Islamic Republic of Iran. That, Mr. Obama, is not a victory.
Did Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq, against the advice of senior military commanders, betray the sacrifice of the American soldiers who fought and died there?

"And should I at your harmless innocence

Melt, as I do" (4.388-9)
Even the hard-hearted Satan cannot help "melting" at the sight of pure, "harmless innocence." It seems that Satan is almost a figure for the reader, at least in the fact that he has a strong, emotional reaction to the sight of "harmless innocence." But he's still Satan; does that mean we shouldn't "melt" at the sight and that we should respond in some other way that is different from Satan's?

Thomas Sowell: Three Questions That Destroy Most Liberal Ideas | Necessary and Proper Gov't`



Dr. Sowell shares something very interesting near the end, that can be put to practical use by all conservatives in our daily political conversations and blogosphere exchanges:
“I’ve often said there are three questions that would destroy most of the arguments on the left.
The first is:  ‘Compared to what?
The second is:  ‘At what cost?
And the third is:  ‘What hard evidence do you have?
Now there are very few ideas on the left that can pass all of those…”

He also described 3D packaging: for the first time, Nvidia is building heterogeneous chips on top of other chips on a single wafer. This solution starts off with a base wafer where interconnections are carried out among the chips. Thus, instead of going off to a PC board, Nvidia is doing the interchip routing on the wafer itself.

Getting Kali Linux to run on ARM hardware has been a major goal for us since day one. So far, we’ve built native images for the Samsung Chromebook, Odroid U2, Raspberry Pi, RK3306, Galaxy Note 10.1, CuBox, Efika MX, and BeagleBone Black to name a few. This however does not mean you cannot install Kali Linux in a chroot on almost any modern device that runs Android. In fact, the developers of Linux Deploy have made it extremely easy to get any number of Linux distributions installed in a chroot environment using a simple GUI builder.

Poul Anderson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Libertarianism[edit]

Instead of a world government, the above-mentioned "Shield" resolves the problem of an American-dominated world dictatorship in a truly libertarian manner: The protagonist, who is hunted by various power groups for the secret of a personal impregnable force field which he brought from Mars, finally decides to simply reveal it to the entire world, so that every individual could thumb his or her nose at each and every Authority.
Anderson often returned to libertarianism (which accounts for his Prometheus Awards) and to the business leader as hero, most notably his character Nicholas van Rijn. Van Rijn is, however, far from the modern type of business executive, being a kind of throwback to the merchant venturer of the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century. If he spends any time in boardrooms or plotting corporate takeovers, the reader remains ignorant of it, since virtually all his appearances are in the wilds of a space frontier.
Beginning in the 1970s, Anderson's historically grounded works were influenced by the theories of the historian John K. Hord, who argued that all empires follow the same broad cyclical pattern, in which the Terran Empire of the Dominic Flandry spy stories fit neatly.
The writer Sandra Miesel (1978) has argued that Anderson's overarching theme is the struggle against entropy and the heat death of the universe, a condition of perfect uniformity where nothing can happen.
