This week, we wander into the skies of “oops” and “sorry” didn’t mean to do that….maybe this flying machine is not safe after all…
We have Google VS British Airlines
First, lets’ explore Google. It seems one of their LOON ‘balloons’ fell on some ladies house. In fact, she didn’t even know it, until the cops knocked on her door. And nobody knew what the heck it was. Surely, it was a weather balloon, at least that’s what they all thought;
What’s a loon balloon? It’s Google’s answer to hooking up rich executives to their I Phones when they escape to their newly built multi-million dollar survival shelters that are being built for them when the Zombie apocalypse hits the streets. What? Is this the Zuckerface wants every single person on the planet to be able to Google Facebook or what? Okay, so Zuckerberg is not Google, but come on. All these guys work together. Or….maybe Google is doing this because they are not so sure that the electrical grids are going to hold up…after nuclear warfare or EMP events. Or maybe they feel so upset in their very big liberal hearts that the little boy in the Congo can’t get enough friends and likes on his FACEBOOK page that they are sparing no expense to build a web in the sky. Who knows?
On the other hand, we witnessed last week, that nasty fire on a British Airway plane that just blew up on the runway in Las Vegas:
Turns out the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) warned both Boeing and General Electric, the 777’s engine-maker, about a flaw in the plane’s engine design that could result in the very catastrophe that took place last week at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas.
What’s worse is that the safety warning was issued over four years ago. The FAA warned that cracks could form in the engine’s high-pressure compressor spool causing “uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.” In other words, the FAA knew that the engine’s turbines could fail under stress, causing an explosion and a shower of debris big enough to set the rest of the plane on fire.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
As much as I want to make fun of Zuckerface, or the guys at Google. If they want to throw balloons in the air, and they have the money, and those balloons don’t mess up traffic in the sky, I don’t think a few balloons falling on the ground is going to be a big deal, as long as they don’t fall and start a fire. Of course, if that happened we won’t hear about it.
That leaves British Airways, who seems to put the blame on Boeing and General Electric. Companies who has made it possible for China to actually put some missile of their own on that airport in Las Vegas.
A British Airways spokesman said: “The safety of our customers and crew is always our priority, and we are looking after those who were on board the BA2276 from Las Vegas to London Gatwick following an incident on Tuesday September 8, 2015″.
Yes, British Airways wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week. Nobody was killed, and only 14 people were hurt due to the fact that once again, the pilot had enough sense NOT to take off. But still, if I lived in London and wanted to book a flight to Las Vegas…I think I would GOOGLE some stats first on the safest plane to take.
But that’s just me.
The ‘creepy’ Google guy, Eric Schmidt, thinks that Amazon should not be allowed to use drones to deliver packages. This from a guy who will BAN your conservative writings against democrats on his Google website. He said THIS in Fortune magazine, and I quote:
“How would you feel,” Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt asked in the Guardian last April, “if your neighbor went over and bought a commercial observation drone that they can launch from their back yard. It just flies over your house all day. How would you feel about it?”
To which I grabbed THIS quote from Philip Elmer Dewitt:
How would I feel about a drone that could snoop on me? Probably the same way I’d feel about a company that monitored all my online activities — the e-mail I send and receive, the websites I visit, the places I visit, the products I buy, the YouTubes I watch, etc. etc. — and sold that information to advertisers.
Ha! They could do that ANYWAY. If a terrorist wants a drone, or a missile, or guns, I’m sure all he has to do is hook up with the Libyan army (who have all those US goodies) and march across our border. And he could get all those things in Mexico!
You have to laugh when one of the biggest spy networks on the planet is worried about other people spying. Why do I call him creepy? He also said this:
The Google policy on a lot of things,” he told attendees at the Aspen Institute’s Washington Ideas Forum, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”
The question is: What is Eric’s definition of creepy?
So therefore, every time I see Eric Schmidt I can’t help myself…I think of this guy:
North Korea just released this video in where they dream of nuking New York. In the background is the music of Michael Jackson– “We Are the World.” Nobody asks herself —is the reason they want to nuke New York is because Steven Spielberg lives in California? Why hit the same place twice? Isn’t Micheal Bloomberg doing enough damage as it is?
And oh my goodness…’President’ Obama today…all of a sudden, seems a bit worried about the “sequester” coming up in March, which will decimate our military down to the point that even people with the video capabilities of a six-year-old can fire some missiles at us, and have a decent chance of succeeding.
You know, it’s got to be tough. Here’s a President that is trying to bring troops home from around the world, in order to put them to work as his own private HomeLand Security army, and some little dweeb over in North Korea is making him look silly.
And you might say: Come on Joyanna…how can a country that can’t even make a simple video actually launch a missile to hit New York? (And once again…why is it always New York?)
Well…once upon a time…Bill Clinton sent over his favorite plutonium giver Sandy Berger, and Sandy supplied North Korea with enough uranium to make their own bombs, which they did. Of course, Clinton said later that, “They lied, they told me they needed it for peaceful means.”
And just recently, Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, went over to North Korea with Sandy Berger, and…you have to wonder what else was given to them? Have you noticed that Bill Clinton and Sandy Berger are the only two politicians that love to visit North Korea? Have you also noticed that every time a democrat comes back from visits to countries that don’t like us, they want to kill us even more?
Democrats. Arming the world…with the help of Michael Jackson. In the meantime, who are all the democrats screaming about as the ones that have to be destroyed forever more?
The Tea Party.
And that’s because the Tea Party KNOWS where the real enemy lies, and it’s not in New York.
Nobody Gets Email
I got this video from my liberal friend, who I met at my local library about five years ago. We both were taking a class in EXCEL, and became fast friends because, when it came to computers, we both we in wonderment…like little kids.
We STILL hold that same childlike attitude about many things. Anyway, when he sent me this video he said, “How do they think up these things?”
That’s my bud. JR is in his 70’s, and yet, still holds his love of learning, and that’s one of the reasons we get along. While our politics are completely opposite, neither one of us has ever gotten mad at our opinions.
Hatred, gets you…nowhere.

Here’s an interesting point of fact that will give us all some thought. The shooter Mr. Holmes, we were told, bought much of his ammunition online. And YET–
He has NO digital footprint. And neither does a staffer that worked for Obama for 8 years…who died.
Makes Nobody Wonder. Circumstancial evidence concludes, the Obama administration had Google erase it.
Good Christians fear not: Nobody is trying to make fun of the Christian religion.
I thought this was a very creative way to help ME figure out, all that I don’t know about the internet!
