More Voters than Eligible Citizens, 2020 Edition.

A new investigation by Tom Fitton of the (excellent) watchdog group Judicial Watch shows there are more registered voters than eligible voters in 353 Counties of 29 States throughout the United States, representing a total of 1.8 million additional unofficial voters, or “ghost” voters.

And this year’s “Winner” for the most “ghost” voters? Loving County, Texas, with a registration rate of 187% among a total population of about 169 people. Talk about ”Civic Duty”!

The “good” news is when Judicial Watch investigated this last year there were 378 counties with over 100% voter registration. So I guess that’s an improvement.

(Perhaps a better improvement might be to cross-reference Voter Registration rolls with Tax Lists, Death Certificates, Social Security rolls, Welfare Lists, and Unemployment Beneficiaries.)

Senate Democrats: Less Hearing Through More Reading?

Throughout my career whenever I took an interview for a new job it was always a three-interview process: The first interview to see if you were professional, polite, reasonably articulate, well-groomed, and could relate your experience to the position’s requirements, the second interview to see if you actually had the skills you bragged about on your resume, and – if offered the position – a third interview to negotiate terms of employment which would keep you happy and your new company solvent.

I suspect it’s much the same when a job for Supreme Court Justice opens up and the “Company” called the “United States” interviews potential hires….except it’s probably more like “23 interviews” – one by each member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and one by the President of the United States – the salary and benefits are pretty much already defined, and the entire country gets to watch it all happen.

This week we’re witness a US Senate’s Judiciary Committee Hearing where 22 people (12 Republicans and 10 Democrats) will interview U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the position of Supreme Court Justice. Apparently, Senate Democrats claim three or so weeks is too short to decide on whether to hire a person for such an important position, but I suggest if they read more their “Hearing” will be less.

Kamala Harris: Every Lie in Moderation?

In America’s justice system there’s the Latin phrase and concept:

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.” –> “False in one thing, false in everything.

That’s why perjuring yourself under oath in court carries a stiff penalty, and why criminals asked to testify against other alleged criminals are routinely put under stringent cross-examination.

So, let’s see how that Latin phrase applies to just one short exchange between Vice President Pence and California Senator Kamala Harris during the recent 2020 Vice Presidential Debate.

It’s the 2020 Democrats’ “Campain Platform”!

After listening Democrat (P)residential Candidate Joe Biden campaining from his basement, socially-distanced rooms, and custom-tailored town halls, Vice (P)residential Candidate Kamala Harris campaining from her Twitter account, and each of them campaining from a one-on-one debate with Trump and Pence, I believe I have a fairly good idea of the Democrats’ 2020 Campain Platform.

Trillions for Me, But not for Millions for Thee?

As part of my job I routinely track current and emerging technologies to answer questions posed by my customers, make my company more competitive, avoid violating intellectual property of others, and occasionally educating myself. Perhaps 50 to 400 technical articles a week might cross my desk, most of which I superficially scan, some I read in detail, and fewer still requiring action by me or my colleagues.

Today, while reading about how gas turbines could be used to adjust the trajectory of asteroids approaching Earth my mind wandered to the “billions and billions” of stars in the Universe, which then led me to think of a more practical, Earthbound situation:
