Should Illegal Aliens Get Free Healthcare?

We are working on updating the staffs computer systems so content is going to be light for the next few days.

Do you think it makes sense for illegals who don’t pay into the system to receive the health benefits it provides? PragerU’s Will Witt asked the people.




Happy Pi Day!

Today is March 14th and that means it is Pi Day! (According to Google, this is the 30th year the day has been celebrated as “Pi Day.”)

Celebrate by taking a mathematical constant to lunch.

Sadly, the world renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has passed away at the age of 76.

Somehow it almost seems fitting that Hawking would pass on this day – a day where many people stop to appreciate the hard sciences and scientific constants.

If it is possible to celebrate and be saddened by events, that’s what we are feeling today.



Christmas Christian (W)Rap.

(An annual favorite.)

Although the album Yo Ho Ho! from which all three songs below came from was released in the late 1980’s, we still love these songs.

It’s just fun stuff that you can hum and whistle while out and about.

Cocoa Beach: Raise Taxes, Spend More.

The City of Cocoa Beach Commission will hold a regular meeting tonight at 7:00 PM. You can see the agenda here.

There are items of interest on the agenda such as negotiating with the United States Tennis Association to run the tennis facilities.

What truly caught our eye was this:

Request to ratify a one-year contract between Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), Public Employee’s Local 6781, and the City of Cocoa Beach from the period of October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2018. Article 19 (Wages) is changed as follows: Effective October 1, 2017, bargaining unit employees shall receive an increase of 2% to their base wages, up to the maximum of their wage ranges. Any portion of the 2% increase above the maximum of their wage ranges will be paid as a lump sum not added to the base wages. Wage minimums and maximums shall be 1% above those reflected in Exhibit A of the wage article. The City reserves the right to set the initial wage for new hires above the minimums established in Exhibit A. This is a budgeted item.

This item is on the consent agenda, which means it won’t even be discussed as a separate item.

The problem, as we see it, is two fold:

It’s Not About The Nail.

If a man says something in the forest and no woman is there to hear him, is he still wrong?



Are Humans More Valuable Than Animals?

From the “Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm…..” department.

If you saw your dog and a stranger both drowning in the ocean, which would you save first? Your answer says, well, everything about how you see the world. Dennis Prager explains.




Menorah Technion Rube Goldberg Machine.

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah began at sunset on December 24, 2016.

According to Wikipedia:

Each night throughout the 8 day holiday, a candle or oil-based light is lit. As a universally practiced “beautification” (hiddur mitzvah) of the mitzvah, the number of lights lit is increased by one each night. An extra light called a shamash, meaning “attendant” or “sexton,” is also lit each night, and is given a distinct location, usually higher, lower, or to the side of the others.

Back in 2012, two students of the Technion school decided that if you are going to light a menorah, do it in a spectacular way that combines the holiday, the meaning of the holiday, and a love for your chosen field of study.

Thus was born the “Rube Goldberg device” of Menorah lighting.

Technion students Eyal Cohen and Tomer Wassermann from the Mechanical Engineering faculty and Matan Orian and Dvir Dukhan of Industrial Engineering and Management take on the challenge to build a Rube Goldberg machine that lights the Chanukah menorah. Hanukkah is the holiday of miracles and here is another one.
