27 – Intolerance, Digital Geneva Convention, Comey Sacked
Tolerance is not related to political party. Do we need a “digital Geneva convention”? Comey got fired. Was it personal? Or logical based on a series of inappropriate actions and statements? Intro Articles: “Visual Noise” distracting workers in the modern, cube-less office Flying Ubers coming to Dallas in 2020, will be cheaper than a taxi...The post 27 – Intolerance, Digital Geneva Convention, Comey Sacked appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

26 – Ugh N. Korea Again, Over-hyped Headlines, Berkeley Attacks Free Speech
North Korea’s aggressive posturing continues with their annual army celebrating designed to showcase their military might. Ideally, China would deal with them so we don’t need to get as involved. The primary driver between their relationship is the coal China receives from North Korea. And with Trump behind the wheel, we have an excellent opportunity...The post 26 – Ugh N.

25 – AI Tax?, Eradicating Terrorism, And Kim Jong-un
AI will revolution the workforce. And we need to prepare for it. But preemptively taxing AI to build up a sum of capital for when people start to lose their jobs is not the answer. The article said it best: this would be like taxing “personal computer software to protect the typewriter industry.” If taxing...The post 25 – AI Tax?, Eradicating Terrorism, And Kim Jong-un appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

24 – Weaponized Drones, Gov’t Red Tape, Trump Strikes Syria
Connecticut is considering creating weaponized drones. Said drones would not carry “lethal” weapons, but could use stun guns, tear gas and rubber bullets on non-compliant citizens. Pros – fewer police-caused fatalities, safer for officers Cons – feels Orwellian and furthers the idea of a surveillance state Trump created a massive flow chart to highlight government...The post 24 – Weaponized Drones, Gov’t Red Tape, Trump Strikes Syria appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

23 – Gov’t Gas-Ex, Ford’s Roaring Back, Brexit Begins
Trump taps his son-in-law Jared Kushner to lead the new White House Office of American Innovation. With an elite team of business consultants, Kushner will work to reform government agencies by applying sound business principles and new technology to the out of control spending and bureaucracy that defines our bloated status quo. Go get ’em...The post 23 – Gov’t Gas-Ex, Ford’s Roaring Back, Brexit Begins appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

22 – Free Speech at Risk in NY, USMC Nude Photo Scandal, Trump’s Foreign Policy
NY is contemplating a bill that seriously limits free speech, requiring people to remove “inaccurate, irrelevant, inadequate and excessive” statements about others. I understand the perspective that this could help remove libel and other wrong and harmful information on others, but this is the slipperiest of slopes. The internet isn’t something that should be “cleaned...The post 22 – Free Speech at Risk in NY, USMC Nude Photo Scandal, Trump’s Foreign Policy appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

21 – $40M in Taxes, AHCA is Weak, Cutting the Fluff
Bombshell Alert: Trump paid taxes. No. My. Gol. And lot’s of them! Almost $40mil… Some news story… The AHCA (American Healthcare Act aka GOP care) seems pretty weak. “Phase 1” has emerged to define the loose set of guiding principles for the new law. But not much in “Phase 1” is all that impressive. I’m...The post 21 – $40M in Taxes, AHCA is Weak, Cutting the Fluff appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

20 – Trump-tapped?, Saudis Exploit Vets, MS-13 Invades
Trump accuses the Obama admin of wiretapping Trump tower during his campaign. A pretty ugly accusation no matter how this shakes out. On the surface it seems to have little to no merit, but if he is right it’s not good for him: A warrant from a FISA court to tap domestic communications means there...The post 20 – Trump-tapped?, Saudis Exploit Vets, MS-13 Invades appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

19 – Cuffed Cops, GOPcare, From Russia without Love
The use-of-force pendulum seems to have swung to far to the left (pun intended) as we watch this cop wrestle a pants-less homeless man to the ground instead of tasing him. Doing so exposed the officer to both harm and a homeless man’s exposed penis. Lovely. The GOP struggles to bring forward a real plan...The post 19 – Cuffed Cops, GOPcare, From Russia without Love appeared first on Tame the Elephant.

18 – US Jobs in Mexico, Right-to work momentum, #keepGITMOopen
It’s no secret that jobs have left this country for Mexico. And the comparison of the prosperity that job brings the American worker vs. the Mexican worker could not be more stark. I’m certainly not arguing these jobs aren’t good for Mexicans, but these jobs used to make the American dream possible. They were something...The post 18 – US Jobs in Mexico, Right-to work momentum, #keepGITMOopen appeared first on Tame the Elephant.
