About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.

Then What?

I hope I’m wrong, but it sure looks as though criminality so completely pervades DoJ, IRS, DoS, Clinton Foundation, DNC, FBI, all obama appointments, Dems in Congress, that a truly honest & comprehensive IG report would, if released publicly, bring down the entire government.

Which means it won’t be complete, won’t be honest, won’t be released, or will be so highly redacted as to be worthless.

Then what?

Then we’ll KNOW beyond a reasonable doubt that the government must be taken apart – or they’d have publicly released a thorough report.

Musical Instrument Museum. Amazing.

When you’ve spent an hour in the special exhibit room and not even begun to tour the rest of the museum, you know you’ve found an amazing place.

In the middle of nowhere, surrounded by scrub desert on the far outskirts of Phoenix sits a large modern building housing an incredible collection of musical instruments. Arranged in sweeping rooms by continent and region, 10,000 instruments are exhibited in unprepossessing but thoughtful arrangements, complete with large flat-screen TVs strategically placed (not interfering with the exhibits) looping content about the close-by instruments: people making them, playing them, experts discussing the historic period […]

OBOR for the Americas

With the 100% probability that OBOR will raise living standards across Eurasia, 10 suggestions:

  1. Build an “OBOR-Americas. Look at OBOR as a model for similar infrastructure from Alaska & Canada to Tierra del Fuego, enriching everyone along the way: road and rail links, seaports. Add airports where it makes sense. Add an electrical grid and Venezuela can start selling their oil again to benefit the region by burning it into electricity, increasing manufactures. Then they’ll all need cars to get to work so will buy gas. Will Venezuela play? They can get on-board or OBOR-A will avoid

Peak Disruption

The post-war Old Order crashes around us. The Information Age reaches the maturation necessary to displace the Industrial Age.

Peak disruption may be at hand in the transition, but peak influence never will arrive. The influence of information will – can – never cease expanding, for such is the nature of information.

The post-post-war order rises. The disruptions accelerate and enlarge as one Age gives way to the next. Fukuyama was wrong.

The media that provided the compass and the landscape for millennia is the troll under the bridge wooing us from reality and telling us of a path […]

What If America Is Not The Target?

Is North Korea aiming to attack America? Or is this misdirection? Looking at America or American colonies (Guam) as Rocket Man’s target may be entirely wrong.

Putting aside the mistake Japan made at Pearl Harbor – a small attack they thought was the mere shooing-away of an almost militarily insignificant non-combatant trying to interfere in their years-long creation of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (that resulted in the annihilation of two of their cities, the loss of millions of Japanese lives and the destruction of their country as an effective polity) – centuries have passed since the last attack […]
