Friday's Musings

Pushing back the frontiers if ignorance ....................

The European Union is DEMANDING control of the American designed & built Internet.    Of course the Europeans want to control something we invented.   Why should we expect anything else from a bunch of socialists?    Controlling other peoples accomplishments is the whole basis for their society.


Paul's ponderings.......................................

Some folks are so eager to find fault, you'd think there's a reward.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

It often takes more courage to change one's opinion than to stick to it.

In democracy your vote counts. In feudalism your count votes.

Can you tell me ...........................................

How can overlook and oversee be opposites while quite a lot and quite a few are alike?

How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell the next?

If a 7/11 is open 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year, why are there locks on the doors?

Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?
