Random Oddservations™ I’m really concerned about the blurring of corporate lines. The good old solid corporation ( i.e. Pittsburgh Plate Glass, Burlington Northern, U.S. Steel- you knew you could get a certain dividend each quarter and you retired knowing that.) Know every corporation has to purchase other companies with the hope of making a bigger profit to return to their shareholders. Microsoft has invested in several gene and embryological research companies. One of those companies have assisted in the development of a device that I am personally intrigued by. Microsoft calls it Emma (I can’t remember the reason why) and it is for individuals like myself with 2 or 3 stage Parkinson’s disease. It looks like a watch and it stops the hand from shaking by picking up the misfiring electrical signals to the muscles and replaces them with appropriate ones. So if I wanted to draw a square it comes out all weird and sloppy and the last corner never meets at the starting position. With “Emma” I could draw a perfect square. Hopefully they continue to advance it and I would be able to type instead of using Dragon Speak to write these articles. My objection is it should be released by the research company instead of Microsoft. With Microsoft will we get yearly updates? If I buy and X-Box can I get a free “Emma”? We will see.

- Oxford University claims that parents should be allowed to kill newborn babies because their lives are “morally irrelevant” and killing them is no different to an abortion. “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

- I normally don’t quote from Breitbart or use their news stories- you generally have to verify them like you would a story from the NYT, but this one is valid” Recent figures show that a majority of Venezuelans go to bed hungry and 15 percent of people eat garbage to survive. The country desperately lacks basic resources, such as medicine and power.Mass protests and riots are now breaking out across the country, as dictator Nicolas Maduro attempts to discard the Venezuelan constitution to tighten his grip on power. http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/05/04/ten-influential-public-figures-praised-venezuelas-descent-socialist-hell/
- Two days ago Andrew A. Snelling, of Answers in Genesis USA, sued the U.S. Interior Department. He accuses them, and more particularly the National Park Service, of abridging his Constitutional rights. Specifically, he sought to study key features of the Grand Canyon. And the Park Service will not let him. The case arises from a plain case of scientific obscurantism. But this time the evolutionists, not any creationists, are obscuring the facts. Fascinating how evolutionists try to prevent any opportunity for research that deviates from their materialistic worldview and sad that legitimate scientists have to go to court to be allowed to do what secular scientists are allowed to do without all the extensive paperwork.

- In many states, voter registration requires proof of citizenship. The left calls such policies anti-American. But is that really such a radical idea, that voters in a U.S. election would have to be U.S. citizens? If liberals want evidence, then Heritage has it. To date, we have documented 773 confirmed criminal convictions in 492 voter fraud cases spanning 44 states. http://dailysignal.com/2017/05/03/left-ignores-voter-fraud-evidence-mounts-prove-wrong
- Want to see some charts (since we have become a visual society) that shows the 2017 budget in a variety of ways. Veery Interesting.
