The Father of the Internet

Dateline: 10-4-20 – It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the passing of our friend, Edson Hendricks. Edson died on August 29th, 2020 after a long illness. The amazing medium we are using right now had the most unusual beginning starting with a computer game called “Starwar”, created by young Edson Hendricks.

Edson Hendricks landed a position as a computer operator on an IBM System/360 Model 65 computer. With a 2250 video display, Hendricks created a computer game to teach himself how to program the machine. “Starwar” was the first computer video game to run on an IBM machine.

Hendricks went on to work on the team to develop the world’s first virtual machine operating system, CP/CMS. The founder and manager of IBM’s Cambridge Scientific Center, Norman Rasmussen asked Hendricks to find a way for the CSC machine to talk to IBM’s other computers at other Scientific Centers.

This was the beginning of computers doing what they are doing right now; talking with other computers, and Edson Hendricks was there.

At the ground level, you could say that Edson Hendricks was the “Father of the Internet”. Yes, people such as Arthur C. Clark and other futurists could “see” that “one day…”, but Edson figured out HOW to actually do it.

Leanne Jones and Edson were very good friends and Leanne is the author of Edson Hendricks life story, titled, “It’s Cool to Be Clever: The Story of Edson C. Hendricks, the Genius Who Invented the Design for the Internet, and is available HERE. The book is a delight to read and the illustrations by Anna Mah are sweet. Continue reading

The Top Eight Reasons John F. Kennedy Was Killed

Share

John F. Kennedy was only President of the United States for three years, ten months, and two days. And here we are, nearly 60 years after his death and American is still wondering and asking questions.

On April 27th 1961, Kennedy did an amazing thing. On that day he gave a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York.

Kennedy had only been president for just three months and seven days, and he was already starting trouble.

In the speech, Kennedy said the following…

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

I am sure that the vast majority of attendees probably didn’t catch what Kennedy was saying.

But I am totally certain that “the powers that be” more than raised an eye brow. Continue reading

Too Many Celebrities Envision Violence Against Trump and the GOP (Videos)

Share

Rich, hypocritical, elite celebrities, spew hate while The Left is preaching "Love Trumps Hate"

Dateline: 6.16.17 – It is so easy to sort out where the hate is coming from. There are more self-important, elite celebrities, but these 15 listed in a recent Breitbart article are the most grotesque. Robert De Nero's face is the biggest in the above graphic because he is on film saying that he wants to punch President Trump in the face. Nice talk, Bobbie!

Other celebs like to hurl homosexual insults at the president, which is ironic and hypocritical because Hollyweird people are oh so accepting and defensive of the homosexual lifestyle. De Nero's father was a homosexual, I can imagine how “accepting” Bobbie would be if someone threw a Steven Colbert-like insult at his Dad.

Here's the link for Breitbart.com story by Daniel Nussbaum and Jerome Hudson… http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/06/14/15-times-celebrities-envisioned-violence-against-trump-and-the-gop/


One box office big shot that's not on the list is the former Governator of California, Arnold “Pinch-Bottom” Schwarzenegger.  He said that he too wants to punch President Trump in the face.

Here’s What Could Have Prevented the Congressman Scalise Shooting

Share

A practical, easy way to implement a solution so that our leaders aren't picked off by LOSERS.

Dateline: 6-15-15 – The solution is simple; allow Congressmen to conceal carry. "Judges" are armed when they're on the bench. Considering the angry calls for violence coming from the Left, why shouldn't our elected officials be able to have a fighting chance if attacked?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/06/15/shooting-spurs-calls-for-new-lawmaker-security-measures.html

The ONLY reason that LOSER did what he did was because he was assured that the republican congressmen were NOT armed. This is what COWARDS do. And if he didn't have a gun, he would have rented a big truck. Citizens AND our elected officials have the right to defend themselves and not be sitting ducks. – Scott

PS – Pocket pistols can be legally purchased for as little as $250. Conceal Carry regulations vary from state to state. If you want to arm yourself, take a class, practice, be LEGAL about what you are doing, and be serious.

BAD PEOPLE count on an unarmed population that will cower. The attacked can only hope the police will get to them in time, and pray. God doesn't answer all prayers. But He does give you the choice to defend yourself and your family.

Paris Climate Agreement 101 – A Reality Check With Stefan Molyneux

Bursting the MYTH of Climate Change (aka Global Warming)

Dateline: 6.3.17 – The hyperventilating from the Left and Greenies has been off the charts since President Trump announced that our nation would not abide by the Paris Climate Agreement. (See President Trump's announcement at the bottom of this post) The Left and especially Hollyweird people have been hysterical, claiming that the oceans are going to swallow us up any day, children will choke to death with asthma, and all manner of grave imaginings. When it comes to dreaming up nightmares, they're very good at it. Maybe that's why they keep cranking out disaster and horror films.

Sigh…

Well, it is time for a brief injection of grounded reality and facts, and not the fairy tales told by NPR and the rest of the Leftist Media.

I invite you to watch this brief well researched 11:56-minute presentation by well known philosopher Stefan Molyneux titled, “The Sad Truth About The Paris Climate Accord.” I believe it be well worth your time.

Stefan Molyneux is an intelligent Youtube channel favorite with the world's largest, commercial free, philosophy website, Free Domain Radio. Stefan is earthy, passionate, funny, serious, and sincere. He talks about history, science, religion, politics, current events, and often has lengthy conversations with his listeners.
