Guns, Bees, and Spies
Cracking the whip on the internets, making everyone git in line, for the GOP.
There is an enormous amount of information out on the web regarding Smartechcorp, pleas Google it to understand how extensive their tentacles are extended, virtually into every one of our lives, unless you are 'off the radar'.
If there are missing e-mails, they are in a former bank building basement in Chattanooga right now on their servers. In addition they handle all credit card transactions done by Veri-Sign. Combine this with the RNC using 35% of the available space on their servers and you see why I am concerned.
Bees is my other 'hot button' issue. While it is not being said to avoid panic I suppose, the missing bees story will have enormous implications as soon as next year. The price of food is going to go through the roof, never mind gas prices. Bees are the one link in Mother Natures operation that, if compromised, will bring about global starvation of biblical proportions.
Right now, research has to be done to substitute the actions done by bees pollinating plants, never mind figuring out where they went for now we need alternatives NOW! This story is not receiving the coverage it deserves by the media now, but by next year when crops fail in enormity, it most likely will. This key element jeopardizes human existence far more than Global Warming, far more than wars, and must be addressed by scientists.
Lastly guns. Judging by the responses of my post yesterday, many of you are passionate with your opinions and I respect that. This is a free country and many Americans share your ideas.
As many of you have heard the State of Virginia has the most lax requirements for purchasing a gun of any type. New York has a problem with criminals going to VA to do their gun buying because of those weak restrictions. Maybe if the laws were not so lax, this horrendous scene could have been avoided, no one knows for sure and hindsight is always 20-20.
By improving scrutiny of gun buyers, it would have a tremendous effect on who could or could not buy guns. 18 is the minimum age in VA, and resident aliens are allowed to buy them.
Might as well sell guns on the street corner like lemonade with those rules. After this incident I think VA will make the necessary changes, I hope so anyway.
OK fire up the keyboards and lets get to bloggin!
