Impeachment logic

I just want to say one thing about this, and maybe just lay it down when it’s fresh, lest it all be forgotten in the fog of what’s to come.

All you really need to know about the Ukraine scandal is contained in the following quote:

“I want to know who’s the person who gave the whistle-blower the information because that’s close to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart with spies and treason, right? We used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”

Just think about it for a minute.

If the whistleblower is a spy, that means that they got some information that they weren’t supposed to get, then shared it with other people who weren’t supposed to get it. That means that the information they got is true. One does not spy on another person and see or hear things that never even happened.

If the whistleblower is a liar who made everything up in an attempt to bring down an upstanding president, they they’re not a spy at all. They’re just someone who made up some lies. They didn’t see anything or hear anything, from anyone. The entire process took place in their own mind.

It is logically impossible for both concepts to be true.

Remember that.

They already started saying it, but, very soon, they will be telling you non-stop that both things are true at the same time.

PRINT /d:file.please

With some small irony, I have to replace a printer today – on account of it being possessed by Astaroth, Prince of Hell – and happened to come across this little gem:

Too right indeed.

Robot life imitates robot art

I rather enjoyed Disney’s Big Hero 6, both when it came out and today. Naturally the most impressive scenes centered around the amazing microbots that our story’s hero Hiro created:

But you want to know what’s way, way, way more impressive?

Humans just figured out how to make that real (albeit a thoroughly prototypical version).

IT guy, dev, designer, writer.

Got a degree in print journalism from UF but history dealt some bad cards to that industry, so I moved back to an earlier love: the computer.

Was recently at ZMOS Networks, but am now the Senior IT Associate at the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation.

My name is moderately common, as are a couple screen names, so always look for the logo to make sure you're reading something with official Km approval.
