Windows ‘Aero Snap’: Maximizing Tech Idiocy for Windows

Windows ‘Aero Snap’: Maximizing Tech Idiocy for Windows

This is the third in a series of posts that I am writing about the tech industry geniuses, through their endless benevolence and brilliance, giving their end users “features” that do nothing to improve the user experience. Contrarily, these “features” get in the way of productivity and, many times, cost users precious time as we…

Hard Drive ‘Auto SpinDown’: Another Garbage Feature that Cannot Be Disabled

Hard Drive ‘Auto SpinDown’: Another Garbage Feature that Cannot Be Disabled

Some time ago, I bought a new Toshiba, 5-terabyte external hard drive for storage purposes. It operates via USB and is plug and play. It has performed very well, except for one thing. After a certain number of minutes of not using it, the drive quits spinning and goes to sleep. Then, if I want…

Mozilla Destroyed Firefox; Version 57+ a ‘Quantum’ Step Backward

Mozilla Destroyed Firefox; Version 57+ a ‘Quantum’ Step Backward

Update: Contrary to my original belief, the video problems that I have been having with Firefox apparently do seem to be related somehow to its dwindling support for Flash. My original points stand, however. While I understand tech gurus desire to protect less savvy individuals from harm, those of us who know what we are…

Cesspools of Censorship and The End of the Free and Open Internet: My Statement on the Deplatforming of Gab

Cesspools of Censorship and The End of the Free and Open Internet: My Statement on the Deplatforming of Gab

I posted an excellent article by Whitney Webb on Govern America yesterday, regarding the censorship and banning of social media site Gab by both its hosting company and its domain registrar. I had been considering writing an article of my own on the subject, but she put it so incredibly elegantly, that I decided to…

College Debt and Responsibilities

College Debt and Responsibilities

When I quit doing Govern America on a weekly basis, I thought I would have all kinds of time to pursue other projects, do more writing, reading, studying, and documenting. To be entirely honest, I thought wrong. I have actually been almost as busy without the radio program as I had been with it. I…

Saving the World, One Turtle at a Time?

Saving the World, One Turtle at a Time?

As I too often have to do, I was outside all day, working on motor vehicles. And as it too often happens, I was having problems fixing the aforementioned motor vehicles. More accurately, the problem wasn’t so much the fixing itself, but rather the ability to obtain the correct part to fix it. I live…

The End of an Era

UPDATE: Govern America is returning to the airwaves, beginning October 19th, 2019 at 11AM Eastern time. Below is the story, as originally published on June 10, 2018. Yesterday, I made the decision to kill Govern America. This was a show that I have been doing since the early 2000s, about 15 years of my life. …

California Water Restrictions

California Water Restrictions

We’ve been warning people about Agenda 21 for over a decade now. My friend, the late Chris Gerner, started talking about it before I started doing talk radio. He was a huge trail blazer in that regard. Agenda 21 (now combined with the Millennium Development Goals and renamed to Agenda 2030) is the United Nations’…

I don’t know you anymore

I don’t know you anymore

I wrote this poem during a very stressful time in my family. My daughter was going through a somewhat rebellious stage and was making some very bad choices. There is often a time in young people’s lives when the wisdom of their parents is not only challenged, but disregarded. Our attempts to communicate seem to…
