So while all the talking heads blather on about the DNC in Denver, I thought I’d do a little reading. Luckily, I found this OpEd piece by a personal favorite, Dr. Thomas Sowell (a remarkable man). He raises a good point – why can parents using little resources (many freely available on the internet) can home school their children and out-perform publicly paid teachers in institutions expending over $10,000 per child per year on education. Good question. Of course, the TV just panned to a supporter at the DNC with a hat reading, “Trust teachers, not test scores”. Uh huh. Maybe they should do some more reading of Dr. Sowell….maybe this piece?
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
