Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019 | Author:

I spent a couple of days in Detroit at the annual RAPID Additive Manufacturing Conference, where I presented a paper on one of my company’s ceramic 3D-printing technology.  I stayed at the Marriott hotel at the Renaissance Center while attending the conference at the Cobo Convention Center.

California Ignores Economic Fundamentals
Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 | Author:

An interesting evaluation and study of poverty rates around the United States places California as the worst State:

So how is it that California, which has spent nearly $1 trillion on antipoverty programs, has the highest poverty rate in the nation?… the state’s war on poverty is one of the causes of California’s impoverished state, and why it is home to about one-third of the nation’s welfare population despite having just 12 percent of the population.

It turns out that state and local bureaucrats who administer California’s antipoverty programs have proven stubbornly resistant to pro-work reforms that have been effective at spurring individuals to pull themselves out of poverty.

Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman warned about this problem more than 40 years ago: “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.”

Happy momma’s day to Missy!   – From your hubby and two sons.

When I was eight years-old, I recall asking my mother when is ‘Children’s Day’?  And she replied that everyday is Children’s Day 🙂

The Symbol of the Democrat Party
Sunday, May 05th, 2019 | Author:

From my buddy, Joe K, this view of the Democrat political party:

The Democrat Party today announced that it is changing its symbol from the Donkey to a Condom because it more accurately reflects the Party’s political stance.

           

A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed!
