Crony capitalism going strong. I'm sure you have read about Amazon's idea to build a second headquarters somewhere.
Isn't it nice to see one of Nevada's elites in complete subservience to this massive cesspool of corporate welfare
called Amazon? No? Yes? Either way, get used to it. It's the way things work. Can you say Tesla? Switch?
Speaking of crony capitalism the RJ reported on 11/3 there seems to be a bit of trouble in corporate welfare heaven
otherwise known at Tesla's gigafactory up North. "Tesla said it will not reach its goal of producing 5,000 Model 3
electric cars per week in 2017 citing hiccups at the gigafactory...." The problem is in the battery module assembly line.
The war on the First Amendment continues pretty much unabated. I found it quite amusing when a high ranking official of the ACLU got shouted down at a college campus in California. A very nice example of what goes around, comes around.
The tragedy in Niger got me wondering if maybe we shouldn't institute a real draft. We are spread so thin all over the world. Our volunteer serviceman and women do their duty, come home and are forced to got out again. For goodness sake I read we've been in Afghanistan 18 years. The Russians had the good sense to get out after a decade. There is no public pressure opposing our military involvement in every nook and cranny of the world. Maybe if these empty headed twits on campus were subject to being sent off to some hell hole to be cannon fodder they would discover the value of the First Amendment and use it rather than trying to destroy it.
A thought on the First Amendment: "If there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other it is the principle of free thought - not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate." -Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
