Memories of the 28th Century

Miscellaneous thoughts about miscellaneous matters

  1. Clearer Constitution

    by , 07-03-2024 at 07:23 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I was thinking abut the Supreme Court decision regarding presidential immunity. Until quite recently, everyone understood that after leaving office, a former president was just another citizen, and no immunity followed the former president. I believe that understanding is obvious in the Constitution, but some people can't read as well as everyone used to.
    Since reading comprehension has deteriorated so much, it might be a good idea to rewrite the Constitution is seven simpler terms. I fend ...
  2. The Illusion of Time

    by , 06-15-2024 at 09:01 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I recently ran into the theory that time is an illusion, yet again. I have been seeing and hearing that idea for years, but the people who express that notion have not yet managed to get that concept to be reflected in observable reality. Or, they can claim that time is an illusion all they want, but until I look outside and watch events that occurred a few thousand years ago as they take place, I will have my doubts. I understand how watching old light allows one to observe what happened a very ...
  3. Bull Moose

    As I sat outside for a few minutes, the question of who I should vote for for president this came to mind. No thinking person can vote for Trump, and there are major problems with the programs that Biden has pushed, and his support of Israel is enough, by it self, to drive me away. In the past I have voted for the Libertarian candidate, and I still my. But a few days ago, I read an article about Teddy Roosevelt, and I was positively impressed by the time someone shot him twice in the chest during ...
  4. Newer New Speak

    by , 05-11-2024 at 03:43 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Recently, I have seen the word Antisemitic many times, and many of the uses strike me as incorrect. To be anti anything, one must first define what that thing is, so I checked standard, authoritative sources, and the definition below from Oxford languages is a good, general, and authoritative definition.

  5. Rehabilitation

    by , 05-05-2024 at 07:24 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Recently, I have been in rehabilitation as a result of being hit by a car, and after some time, they moved me to the nursing care part of the facility. That move has been horrible. Being in a medical facility is unpleasant, but I find the way that people are treated in the nursing home to be repugnant. On the other hand, most of the people here are in horrible condition and are simply waiting for their ends. It might just be that I am inappropriate for such a place. I am quite ambulatory, unlike ...
