Daniel Suarez’s book Kill Decision takes on the topic of drones, especially autonomous drones that can make their own decision to kill, with no human in the loop.

I love a good publicity stunt. At the South By Southwest festival (SXSW) festival, Chaotic Moon Studio used a drone to tase an intern.

Scholars have determined that the Prodigal Son parable is one of the most authentic stories of the man called Christ, but some Christian conservatives don’t want to accept that the God of the New Testament is about forgiveness, love and joy. The God of the Old Testament, with his wrath, anger and stoning of “sinners” is more to their liking.

If I were the new communications director for Chris Christie I would NOT advise him to “come clean” further and apologize, I would go on the attack. Attack. Attack. Attack. He needs to attack Wildstein, his character, motivations and his backers or else he will alienate his base who LIKE that Christie is a fighter.

I think protest movements don’t find, create or acquire enough leverage to use on the people who have the power to make change. So, how do we do that?

Here’s a short animated video explaining why the Trans-Pacific Partnership sucks. Starring my imitation of Ross Perot!
Remember, Ross knew all about the “Giant sucking sound from the South” that became NAFTA.
I pulled concepts from both the left and the right to inform this video. My number one concern on TPP is Food Safety, which nobody is talking about yet.

After every major shooting the media contact gun sellers in the area who gleefully report, “Sales have gone up!” They explain, “People are buying guns for protection.” Because as we all know from the NRA, the answer to gun violence is more guns. This conveniently sells more guns.

My friend Alex Lawson, of Social Security Works, dressed up as a corporate pirate and showed up at the public launch event for “The Can Kicks Back” a subgroup of the billionaire funded front group “Fix the Debt” movement.
What is great about this action is how Alex used the organizations’ own PR push and event to subvert their message.

What if, after a disaster, Big Government treated people with the same cruelty that right-wing conservative Christian politicians say they want? What would that look like?
