The following is an except from an article I wrote on Examiner.com:
"From now until the 2012 elections, I am going to write a series of articles with the express purpose of trying to get the average reader to "think outside of the box" At the same time, I hope I am up to the task of keeping the subject matter entertaining. Before the next election occurs, it is my hope to get WE THE PEOPLE aka the Common person aka the General Public to experience a paradigm shift in their thinking with regard to poltics and voiting.
Ultimately, I want to change your perception of reality to one that reflects your own true thought processes. This as opposed to the your current perception of reality induced by the propaganda, censorship and duplicity of America's Major Media, Entertainment Industry, Big Business and our own alleged political leaders. All this with the goal of having you vote your own mind, rather than vote in the manner your Government and major media have manipulated you to.
That having been said....
I was first introduced to Chaos theory in college. It was one of those hazy late night philosophical discussions we often had in college.
FREE WILL vs CHAOS THEORY
In America, during our youthful years of public education we are indoctrinated with a belief that everything we choose to do is a matter of free will. If I choose to turn left, kick a can, drink water, blow off class, cast a vote or any act you can think of, we are taught to believe we had the ability aka free will, to choose to do something else. Turn Right, not drink, not skip class, not vote. We are taught that every action we take is fully within our personal control and we make our choices of our own free will.
Chaos Theory (Determinism) states that no matter what we do, we have no choice... we have no free will. According to Chaos Theory, so many external factors have acted upon you that you have no choice but to do what ever action you have done. Your choice has been predetermined by a multitude of previously occurring, external influences.
Being much younger then, of course I knew it all and immediately dismissed this proposed Chaos Theory as psycho-babble. Yet, almost half a life time later, I am willing to consider chaos theory as a viable explanation of certain political events and attitudes.
WISCONSIN PUBLIC EMPLOYEES
My personality is that of an analytical driver. I gather facts and make decisions. It has been my life’s presumption that the vast majority of people also act out of reason and logic.
It escapes me by what logic Rank and File Wisconsin Public Employees do not recognize..."

I'm fully convinced that Android can offer a cloud experience like Chrome OS can; there has to be a division between screens that are small and those that are larger. Perhaps Android running Chrome browser could bridge the gap, but that really goes against the convention of cloud computing at this point.I'm fully convinced that Android can offer a cloud experience like Chrome OS can;... more

A laptop containing personal information on 33,000 travelers enrolled in a fast pass program at the San Francisco International Airport turned up Tuesday in the same airport office from which it had been reported missing more than a week earlier.
The machine belonged to Verified Identity Pass, which has a contract with the Transportation Security Administration to run a program called Clear, which speeds registered travelers through airport security lines.
The laptop was reported missing to airport police and the San Mateo County Sheriff's office on July 26 and to the TSA on July 28, according to Allison Beer, senior vice president for corporate development of Clear.
It held names, addresses and birth dates for people applying to the program, as well as driver license, passport or green card information. But, she said, the computer contained no social security numbers, credit card numbers, fingerprints, facial images or other biometric information.
"Yes, it was sensitive privacy information, but not the stuff that was most sensitive," she said.
According to Beer, someone downloaded the information from a company server onto the laptop, which was part of a kiosk that was taken to companies and downtown locations and used to enroll travelers in the Clear program.
