Just imagine

California recently passed a law in which all candidates for an elective office compete in one primary. The top two finishers then compete in a run-off election in November. Just imagine a single national primary for the office of US President, say in July. Then the top two finishers meet in the November election after a relatively short campaign. If that were in effect now, this election might be between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

Miata…or Fiata? That, is the question!

I want one of each

Mind Over Motor

Jason Cammisa doesn’t skip a beat from the downbeat on this bass-addled (the music is excellent in this episode of Ignition) comparison test. The Miata and its new, somewhat attractive sister, the Fiat 124 Spider, are put against one another to figure out which is a superior product. I personally love the ND Miata so I would rather have that–but here in the USA, we have freedom of choice. So, which one is really best? Take a little time and have a watch.

21st century slavery

When slaves speak out, their owners are upset. NFL owners are upset with Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem. Kaepernick and other athletes are well paid to risk life and limb in professional sports, but the majority of minorities are not adequately paid in an economy that amounts to wage slavery for many. And then there are the actual slaves laboring in our prisons and in foreign factories to produce low-cost goods for American consumers.
