Private space program rocket launch cancelled

We’ve heard little regarding the idea of a space program since losing our own in America several years ago.  Now and then though, we see a story covering some private space program in development.  So yes, while the program of national interest no longer itself stokes much passion, there are private pockets in the game for sure.

List of private space flight companies….

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 just missed its debut today, due to an overheated engine.  The flight was spared just in time.

Who here remembers the movie Moon?  I don’t want to do a spoiler here, but I do hope you at least hit the link and read the Wiki on Moon, if you’re unfamiliar with the story.  As a movie, it’s well worth your time to watch.

I think we’re headed quickly toward a Moon sort of future.  Don’t you?

Quotes from A.Leigh

Having good fortune in writing professionally unfortunately brings worse fortune for writing personally.  For a babe, an amorous act of balance with disproportionate ebb and flow.  – A.Leigh

Employers, #backoff citizens’ privates. #Legislate

It’s about time we let go of the belief that someone’s “Like” is actually and necessarily a Like.

Most often, it is simply a bookmark.

What’s a bookmark?  At the least, a bookmark is a reminder to look back, and not necessarily at something that you like or support.  he reason for bookmarking could be just the opposite, or any other.

It’s about time we call the private zones of social apps exactly what they are- our private parts.  Thus it is about time the new privacy laws be turned to the company representative abusers who use our private parts against us.

It’s about time to make it illegal for any organization or its representative to even go so far as to search for any citizen’s social pages.  Consequently it is also time to have automated information tactics utilized that would guard against any occurrence of abuse of the system intended to be protective of citizens’ constitutional and civil rights.

Terrible Tuesday reflections- subconscious level orange & May Day celebrations

Terror:

After the terrorist attack on the United States  in New York City on September 11, 2001, over a decade ago, the states’ populations came together in a kind of unity I had never experienced, being of a young enough age to have never been involved in any kind of foreign- much less domestic- war.  The attacks on that sunny morning in September shocked an entire population into a state of awareness for each other that was intense and somehow thrilling; however, this heightened state of acknowledgement soon turned into simply an increased awareness OF each other, rather than for.

That began innocently enough, with everyone in a state of fear over another attack.  Then, it was easy to convince most citizens that it should be necessary to encroach further into the privacy of all citizens.  Their own trust in their personal safety had been effectively shattered.  Score- terror tactics.

Is it a wonder why American citizens balk at the idea of their government terrorizing its own attackers (enhanced interrogations controversy), in spite of themselves.

Ethics:

Yet the explanation is simple, and it is encouraging.  A certain percentage are trying very hard to remain ethical creatures of intelligence.  Some of our people are remembering the United States of America and those things for which it stands, despite that their homeland is tread upon by resident enemies, and that some of these have been successful in tearing down it’s beloved structure and in killing thousands of its citizens.  While it is difficult to put any stock in a trust of no torture (WHO can be trusted these days?), it should still be the preferred idea that no land’s government should resort to severe tactics of physical or mental anguish of captives.  There still need to be leaders in the realm of peace and good will in operation.

Occupy:

My realization of our crisis status as a cohesive people of the United States and as a suffering economy did not come until much later than I would have preferred.  The problems seem all too obvious, with no citizen holding many punches.  Poor people are tired of being poor, especially since they’re only becoming poorer AND their opportunity to step up has essentially been removed, referring to the all but gone middle class option.  Granted that the middle class scenario is an yin and yang of opportunity as the global market develops.  What need be remembered is the disparity of income increase between the middle class and the famed 1% that has occurred in the US since 1980.

Part of the mid-classers’ experience today is a more fundamental problem than mere money alone.  Much of this group’s self-worth and value is their willingness, desire, education and skilled experience involved in the innovations and operations of the world.  Yet, right along with the money, also go a hundred small freedoms, according to the 99%.

class values tend to emphasize independence, adherence to intrinsic standards, valuing innovation and respecting non-conformity.  Politically more active than other demographics, college educated middle class professionals are…

Add to this the losses of freedom that are sitting on the scruples of America at any given time:

  • Safer airport passing that has come as far as multiple accusations of inappropriate touching, looting and peering.
  • Loss of freedom from being held without charge
  • Loss of legal representation rights

This list goes on.

We celebrate May Day today- and simultaneously Law Day also.

Learn more about the May Day- Law Day relationship…

Here’s hoping everyone has a safe and law-free May Day.
