The big question for the next century

While none of us know the future, we have a good handle on what drives change. Technology is the big b1tch on the stage of history, setting the act and letting the characters play out their roles in her drama. Ideas, economics, politicians, and literati are just characters on her stage, who operate in her paradigm.

We have a little window into the next big technological revolution, the automation of most human labor, body and brain.

Within the existing economic order, automation portends a tectonic shift in the magnitude of inequality, and the diminution of the value of the average mass man to near nil.

The political table is set for a war over the proceeds of this automation - who will reap the benefits. The millions of mouths who's hands and brains have lost their value, or the fortunate ones who sit astride the machine that manages the machines?

The earth has a limited surface, a limited carrying capacity, limited fuel and a limited tolerance for swarms of living things crowding it up. The human enterprise has bred huge numbers of animals and pairs of hands to produce its daily bread, fight its wars and produce its wealth, and so long as those pairs of hands and their attached mouths had a real positive value, population has grown.

Though Wheaties cereal boxes typically depict famous athletes, the Wheaties website clarifies a champion is "no longer solely the megastar athlete; it is also any person who looks inside and challenges their personal best."

If Rand is GOP Nominee, 3rd Party Candidates in POTUS Debates

I'm calling it right now--if Rand is the GOP Presidential nominee, we'll see a 3rd Party candidate in the Presidential debates for the first time since Perot. This will be done to split the GOP vote to hand the victory to Hillary, of course because it will be a Libertarian or Right-leaning candidate. They would not dare allow a Green party candidate into the debates because it would cost Hillary votes.

DP Musicians? Potential Liberty Song Project

I am pretty sure that other musicians here besides myself have taken notice of how Mr Ed Moran's Liberty Poems rhyme with a rhythm that could easily be put to music and made into a song for sharing Liberty. I think this has the potential to create a very popular song with a good message.

Mr Moran has agreed to use one of his poems and make an effort in this direction. He has also shared that he doesn't have the musical or vocal ability to do it himself but would enjoy working with those that have this ability to put a song together from one of his finely crafted works.

Alan Grayson Having A Bad Day, New Poll Shows He Could Lose Re-Election

Central Florida Realtor and Republican congressional nominee Carol Platt has received the endorsement from the Orlando Sentinel over her congressional opponent, Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson.

Grayson is probably fuming over the paper’s endorsement of Platt, but does anyone blame the Sentinel for backing Platt over Grayson, considering his past divisive and insensitive political stunts and antics, not to mention the fact that he loves to spend taxpayer dollars.

Here is what the Orlando Sentinel wrote about Grayson:
