Still Amazed by Obama’s Level of Disrespect

A White House official confirmed this afternoon that President Barack Obama will not attend former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral on Friday, instead opting to speak at a hipster film and music festival in Texas.

I didn’t think it possible to be more disappointed with President Obama, but today I am more disappointed!

This action comes only weeks after President Obama skipped the funeral of Justice Scalia.

I understand that Obama’s political wold view does not align with either the Regans or Justice Scalia.  However, that is a poor excuse.

President Obama is, for better or worse, the Head of State of the United States.  He has a responsibility to attend the funeral of a former First Lady of the United States.  It is a matter of respect.

 

 

Some Republicans Could Back Hillary Clinton Over Donald Trump.

First, I am not a primary supporter of Donald Trump.  I have decided to cast my primary vote for Ted Cruz.

With that said, however, if the general election comes down to Trump receiving the Republican nomination, I will vote for him.

Saunders is a self-described socialist.  Socialism has failed every time it has ever been tried anywhere.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Hillary is another four or eight years of the proven failed policies of Obama.  Also with the pending FBI probe into Hillary’s alleged illegal actions while serving as Secretary of State, she is just not Presidential material.

De-Extinction of Ice Age Cave Lion? Is it a good idea?

I can’t say i am a fan of the idea of de-extinction objectives.   On the surface it reminds me of the crazy things that “could” happen like in the fictional movie “Jurassic Park.”  More than that, however, it just seems to be a bad idea for both the creatures involved and humanity as a whole.

Let’s just assume for a moment that de-extincting ice age cave lions as is proposed by the scientists in this article is actually possible.  What happens to that creature when it is exposed to the modern world of viruses, bacteria, and fungus.  This is an alien world to that creature.  It his absolutely no natural immunity for biological defense.

Also, what impact will the introduction of this creature be on our modern environment and food chain.  Will this creature be a natural predator?  Will there be other animals to keep this creature’s population under control?

There are a lot of thing to consider when playing such a dangerous game.  I just, really, do not believe the reason “because we can” is a good enough reason.
