***What a deal!!! Iran says it gets to decide which nuclear inspectors are allowed into their country. The disaster that is this current administration goes beyond my ability to describe it.
They've already determined that no Americans will be be granted access to their country as part of international inspections teams under the terms of the US-led nuclear accord, and they've already told the IAEA they won't permit inspectors on the ground to supervise the collection of soil samples at the infamous Parchin nuclear site. Now the Iranian regime is asserting veto power over any inspectors they don't like -- on top of their right under the agreement to contest "snap" inspections requests, triggering an appeal process of up to 24 days. And even if violations are detected, the matter would be referred to a committee that includes Russia, China and Iran itself for adjudication.
Could it be any more obvious how incompetent Obama and Lurch Kerry are?
***Scott Walker shuts down hecklers.
Is this the Wisconsin Governor's "I am paying for this microphone!" moment? Monday at the Iowa State Fair, a popular stop on the 2016 presidential campaign trail, Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) gave us a glimpse of how he beat Big Labor in his home state.
When a small group of hecklers tried to interrupt Walker's SoapBox speech, he had a swift and compelling response:
"I am not intimidated by you sir or anyone else out there," Walker says, loudly, to a protester in the front row. "This is what happened in Wisconsin," Walker added. "We will not back down."Walker was referring to his successful fight against Wisconsin labor unions in 2012. When the unions forced the governor into a recall election because of his daring to scale back their collective bargaining rights, he won handily. The years following have not made him any less convincing in his taking down these special interest groups.
I really like this guy.
Yet another example of this administration's disastrous decisions.
***Protecting your home from break-ins. Some good information here.
We are investing in a security system, there have been a series of break-ins in our area. We have our guns in the house, but they won't do any good if we don't have any warning. It's getting crazy out there.
***Humaoid robot goes for a run in the woods. Okay, that's a little creepy.
Boston Dynamics, the robot company owned by Google, has released footage of Atlas, its six-foot humanoid robot stomping through woodland.
Like a scene from a sci-fi movie, Atlas is shown making its mechanical way through nature in footage featured in a YouTube video.
Unlike famous movie robots such as C-3PO, Atlas is shown connected to a power tether during its walk in the woods, although Boston Dynamics says that it is working on a untethered version of the bot.
***Fun little factoid:
Upon graduating from Harvard, John Adams became a grammar school teacher. “My little school, like the great world, is made up of Kings, politicians, divines, fops, buffoons, fiddlers, fools, coxcombs, sycophants, chimney sweeps, and every other character I see in the world. I would rather sit in school and consider which of my pupils will turn out be a hero, and which a rake, which a philosopher and which a parasite, than to have an income of a thousand pounds a year.”
