Motif For The U.S. Economy

This seems like it could be a major theme of the U.S. economy. 

“Buy Now, Pay Later!”

And then…

“Foreclosure”

You can’t borrow infinitely.

It eventually has to be repaid. 

Where will the money come from?  

Print more.

Worth less!  😉

Where Have All The Heroes Gone?

Art imitates life. 

When we had heroes in the real world there were also superheroes on television, movies, video games, toys, and more. 

But alas leadership in our times has seriously fallen short.

Who is there to really look up to as a model for us to respect and follow? 

It seems like everywhere these days we are confronted by: 

– Failing leadership 

– Poor decision-making

– Party politics

– Obstructionism

– Finger-pointing

– Fraud, waste, and abuse

– Bullying and sexual harassment

– Bribery and kleptocracy

– Big time narcissism 

There are few if any heroes these days!

It’s sad for us as well as for our children.

I hope we see Batman and Superman and other superheroes again: strong in the physical sense but primarily a symbol for strength of character/integrity and for the fight of good over evil in this world. 

The void is painful for our times and is going to impact our near term future as well.  😉

The End of Times

I am looking for a good book on the Jewish view of the End of Times.

  • Who fights who?
  • What happens and how does the fighting finally end?
  • Who will live and who will die?
  • Who from the dead will be resurrected?
  • What occurs in practical terms when the Mashiach arrives?
  • What does G-d’s revelation to the whole world look and feel like?
  • Where is Israel at each step in unfolding of the redemption?
  • How does the 3rd Temple actually get built?
  • Is world peace not only possible, but also enduring? 

Wow, would love to read a layman’s book like this.  
Can anyone recommend anything really good?  😉

Fantastic Drone Capabilities Coming

Exciting video by Futurism on what drones can and will do. 


Swarming.


Wall landings.


Acrobatics.


Drone on drone landings.


Playing catch.


Juggling.


Building a rope bridge. 


These little drones are so versatile and dexterous that perhaps what they can do is only limited by our imagination. 


Soon drones will do everything from caring for people’s personal needs to building our cities, fighting diseases from within our very bodies, and conducting open warfare on the battlefield and behind enemy lines. 


Small and many is big and powerful! 😉
