CONCEPT: I am Spartacus, well oh dear Don Quixote (we are all Spartacus, Superman, Batman, and yes Don Quixote)


“Sometimes I like to think I am a person from a comic book or famous book, but my flaws are far greater than any hero.  I am Spartacus!  I am Superman, Batman, and yes Don Quixote” – J20.01.22.0700C

NOTE FROM HOST: I need to write a bigger check to Wiki and all the information sourced from Wiki or Google (says it is free and I trust Wiki, Google, and Facebook).  OMG/WTF – I need pages of disclosures to think!

SONG OF THE DAY: Kryptonite

RAW DATA DUMP (CONCEPT)

  • ALL HEROS = good, bad, and ugly
  • SUPERMAN
    • Good: 1938 comic hero to Smallville
    • Bad: Kryptonite
    • Ugly: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice = Superman as a hero is dead as long as there is Kryptonite
  • BATMAN
    • Good: Do we not have cool tools and can we be a real batman?
    • Bad: Nobody has access to toys like in the movie Batman or Ironman
    • Ugly: Kick-Ass says it all for the batman (gun = dead)

I am batman

  • OTHERS (TBA Don Quixote, Spartacus)

More to come soon in another posting!

I am Don Quixote,

What is driving Proposition 13 in CA (or thank you Vox Media / New York / Intelligencer /Ed Kilgore for great information) #psbyjd


“Wisdom is what the news calls madness” – J20.01.21.2100

This says it all CA

Section 1. (a) The maximum amount of any ad valorem tax on real property shall not exceed one percent (1%) of the full cash value of such property. The one percent (1%) tax to be collected by the counties and apportioned according to law to the districts within the counties. — California Constitution Article XIII A

YOUR HOST NOTES: Thank you “Vox Media / New York / Intelligencer/” does an article on proposition 13, we know it is national politics.  Thank you Vox Media!  Mr. Morris’ motto is “Say Provocative statements that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!” My provocative statement is “Wisdom is what the news calls madness” – J20.01.21.2100 (except in many cases “New Yorker” and others).

REBLOG NEW YORKER

While this will mostly be a classic left-right, business–versus–unions and government battle, California’s progressive tilt doesn’t guarantee victory for split-roll. As noted above, corporate types will offer a slippery-slope claim that once the taxman has feasted on commercial property taxes, homeowners will inevitably be next. And there are some affordable-housing advocates who fear split-roll will perversely incentivize commercial real-estate development by making it a larger revenue generator for local governments.

Senators are bending the rules on cellphones

Considering the screen habits of most Americans, the rule that senators cannot use electronic devices in the chamber is going to be a tough one to adhere to during the grueling hours expected for the trial. As a workaround, at least eight senators so far have worn Apple Watches to be able to contact aides and the outside world. According to Roll Call, so far only one presidential hopeful has been seen with a loophole smartwatch: Michael Bennet.

Senators are opting for low-tech, middle-school solutions to get around the no-communication rule during the trial, including passing notes (Mike Lee), sharing candy (Ben Sasse), whispering to neighbors (Mark Warren and Tim Kaine), and pretending to punch a colleague in the chest (Lisa Murkowski to Lindsey Graham).

P.S. by JD with “luck begins with hard work” or is the question is moot!


Let us face it that all quotes are based on proverbs so no need to quote somebody as the question is moot! JD Morris’s provocative statement for the day!

Today we launch our new blog posting P.S. by JD that based on my motto! My motto is “Say provocative statements (P.S.) that intelligent people argue about fast without dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. As life is all about fun and results!”  P.S. = Provocative Statement

I wrote an article for my MIT class about AI and used an AI tool called Grammarly to check for it being considered plagiarism. Some people are getting smart and know how to take credit for old sayings in the bible, chinses proverbs, etc. and sure enough, Grammarly pointed to possible sources. That leads to my favorite quote has issue and who should get credit?

Should you be able to bastardize a quote and call it yours?  Let me provide an example with my favorite quote that says “I am a great believer in luck. The harder I work the more luck I have” and nobody knows the source of this quote.  As of today, I am claiming the saying “Luck begins with hard work” and you will need to sight me or my lawyers will be sending you letter and demanding payment (Joking Kinda).

Who said the original statement?  Grammarly did point me to quoteinvetingator.com that points to Thomas Jefferson and a ton of other people that most likely just bastardized a quote from the bible or Chinese proverb. The funny thing is one of Thomas Jefferson’s foundations said that he did not say that statement and should not be quoted. That leads the statement that everything said can be found in a proverb, so you do not need to quote me or anyone.  You be the judge based on this research that did not look at the old proverb for the source.  

Research on the quote:

https://quoteinvestigator.com/2012/07/21/luck-hard-work/

However, I say the question is moot!

Disclosure:  These are ideas of JD Morris alone.
