Quick Hits

I broke down and upgraded my iPhone 4S to a 5S, and now must quickly upgrade my Generation Three iPad to the new iPad Air because both my phone and tablet should at least have the same connectors!

It would really be confusing, and annoying not to have the right USB cable and connector at the right place.

On the subject of technology, I HATE the idea of cell phone use on airplanes for phone use, but applaud the use for music through earphones. I can’t even imagine how annoying it must be to have to listen to teenagers discussing their lives in the seat next to me for five hours, San Diego to Honolulu!The TV talking heads recommend “Noise Canceling Headphones” — what they apparently do not know is that those only cancel noise with a continuous frequency — like airplane engine noise — but not talking or music.

Now, you who read this from cold company may wonder why anyone living in San Diego would fly to Honolulu, and that’s a good question. It’s call Marginal Utility — Honolulu is marginally warmer.

Today, I showed one of my real estate listings to a couple who just flew in from Chicago, where it was 10 degrees. Even though  is “cold and rainy” by San Diego standards, compared to Chicago…

Everything is relative.


In any other news cycle, the taxpayer loss of $139 million in the Fiscar car collapse, a la Solyndra, would be good news, but this Democrat power grab, the collapse of Obamacare, NSA spy revelations, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the illegal use of the IRS, …and does ANYONE remember the name James Rosen…

Heck, even a lousy $$139 million doesn’t make Honorable Mention!

The nation is suffering Scandal Fatigue…for good reason.


One wonders if anyone has seen the videos of Obama, Biden, Reid (“it would be the darkest day of the Senate”), and Pelosi saying the the 60 vote rule should never be changed — when the Republicans had control of the Senate.

I understand why the Republicans are not replaying those videos — when the Democrats are destroying their Party with Obamacare, why get in their way with a distraction to that overwhelmingly disastrous policy. Democrats are eating their seed corn, which is why Reid, Obama, Pelosi, Hillary, Biden, et al have ALWAYS opposed the nuclear option on filibusters.

Like the General Motors executives who gave in to unions for years to gain immediate peace from strikes, passing the problem to future executives with the hope the debt comes due when the peace-seeking executives have retired, the current Democrats have gained immediate advantage at the cost of Democrats in future Congresses.

Reid, Obama, Pelosi, Hillary and Biden all recognized this — and forcibly expressed it, previously. This is more likely a ploy to change the subject from Obamacare because the Democrats will plead for return to filibuster rules in the next Congress — and Republicans will probably relent because it is the right thing to do.

I wouldn’t but they will.

The ONLY state where “Young Invincibles” are paying their way of the Medicare sign ups is Connecticut. If this trend continues into the new year, and there is nothing on the horizon to change it that is visible, the Democrats have a mess.

My own son’s premium just went from $400 to $916, with a higher deductible.

Winning enemies, and certainly influencing people.
