Obsolesce Of Nuclear Weapons

This is one incredible video. 


It shows the killing power of micro killer drones. 


With a host of cameras and other sensors including facial recognition and GPS, plus a small amount of explosives, these drones can target individuals or critical infrastructure and take them out!


The drones can work alone or in swarms to get into and kill or destroy anything. 


No VIP (very important person) or CIP (critical infrastructure protected) is safe. 


We can wipe out entire cities or the nuclear infrastructure of our enemies. 


Despite the warning about artificial intelligence at the end of this video, rest assured these killer microdrones are coming. 


Big is the new small, and small is the new big. 


In fact, big things come in small packages–exactly!  


Iran and North Korea are chasing obsolete technology to harm the U.S. and Israel, and within a short time, they will see the error of their malevolent ways 


G-d foretells us all in the Bible and like David and Goliath–a slingshot to the forehead and the fight with the evil is over. 😉


(Thank you to Itzchak for sharing this video with me). 

Easy Solution to Axis of Evil

Missile.jpeg

So there is an easy solution to the hellbent destruction of the Axis of Evil…


North Korea and Iran are sworn to the destruction of the U.S. and it’s allies. 


Repeatedly, they sponsor global terrorism, abuse human rights, violate agreements against proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, conduct nuke tests, and missile launches. 


Instead of destroying the missiles immediately upon launch or on the launchpad, which is a nice start…


Let’s just do this:


– When North Korea launches, let’s redirect the guidance system on the missile to Tehran. 


– And when Iran launches their missiles, let’s redirect it toward Pyongyang. 


We don’t have to fire a single volley. 


Let the evil ones destroy each other and have a gangbusters time doing it. 😉

What ISIS Saw Today

Seeing Spots.JPEG

So this is what ISIS saw today…


After the U.S. dropped the Mother Of All Bombs (MOAB) on it in Afghanistan.


30 feet long, 21,600 pounds, GPS-guided, equivalent to 11 tons of TNT, and a blast radius of 1 mile!


The largest non-nuclear bomb in our arsenal that sucks out all the oxygen and lights the air on fire. 


It was never used before in battle, and it is wonderful to see that we are finally pulling out the stops on radical Islamist Terrorism. 


It’s time to make them crap their pants and see nothing but spots before their eyes. 


Terrorists, there is a new President in town–and the game is up! 😉

Bombs But No Strategy

Bombs.jpeg

So the good news is that we have killed about 45,000 ISIS terrorist fighters.


The bad news is two-fold:


First, there are still roughly 15,000-30,000 remaining and more being recruited all the time. 


Second, it took us 49,315 bombs dropped over two years to do this. 


So we are averaging less than 1 kill per bomb!


Sure, we are also hitting other targets like oil and gas infrastructure and tankers.


But about 20,000 of the munitions dropped are GPS precision-guided (e..g Joint Direct Attack Munitions, Small Diameter Bombs, and Hellfire Missiles) and have cost $2 billion!


That comes out to a cost of around $45,000 just for just 40% the bombs to kill each and every ISIS terrorist, and doesn’t even include all the extensive military infrastructure, planes, intelligence, and people. 


And this is just a super tiny drop in the bucket compared to the $4-$6 trillion that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, after 9/11, has cost just through 2013


–That represents between 20-30% of our our entire $20 trillion national debt!


At this rate, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the other terrorists may simply be able to cause irreparable damage and even bankrupt America.


How long can we afford to fight these extended and expensive wars against terrorism and never seem to even win–what’s the strategy here? Is there one?

Answer Your Watch

Watch

So I did it and took the plunge into a smartwatch. 

For over a year, I thought the technology just wasn’t there yet. 

Too clumsy, too difficult to use with such a small device. 

First, I considered just a Fitbit for tracking activity, but I quickly ruled it out, since you can get so much more with a full smartwatch.

Then, I looked into the Pebble, in particular the latest model the Time Steel, which runs between $200-$250. 

But I watched a review that pointed out the the Pebble does not have a touch screen, and everything are the buttons–okay, I immediately ruled that out. 

Next, I looked to old trusty, Apple…they have never failed me yet, and I tried on their various smartwatches. 

I settled on a simple sports model, since I figured as the technology continues to evolve or as the watch gets beat up in daily use, I could simply upgrade to the next great thing. 

Also, I figured if I really don’t like how it works, it wouldn’t be such a great loss monetarily. 

Well, the verdict is in–I really like it!

Easy to set up by simply syncing with the iPhone. 

And then all your major apps just show up on the colorful apps panel. 

In no time, I was checking the 10-day weather forecast, reading news headlines, tracking my activity, using the GPS locator, looking up calendar events, checking email and replying with easy voice dictation, sending text messages, and even calling family and talking to them into the watch!

I even started the music on my iPhone from another room by using the smartwatch. 

Oh yeah, I almost forget, it tells the time too!

Except for taking photos, which would be really cool with the watch, but it doesn’t do–it did most of the basics that I wanted it to. 

For not a lot of money, I felt that I was getting a lot of convenient functionality, and I am now encouraging my wife and kids to get it too. 

Apple, you still got it–so even though Google surpassed you in market value this week, I am still hopeful that you got some decent mojo left in you. 😉

tURNING yOUR dEVICE aGAINST yOU!

Eavesdropping
So interesting article in BBC about the Samsung’s “Listening TV.”



This TV has voice activated controls and they don’t just take commands, but…



“If your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.”



So aside from hackers (and spies) being able to turn your phone and computer mics, cameras, and GPS location data on and off to surveil and eavesdrop on you, now the dumb television set can listen in as well. 



You can be heard, seen, and found…whether you know it or not. 😉
