NO! Dreamers are NOT Americans and they are NOT America

Last democratic presidential candidate debate of 2019. NO! For all the candidates who insist immigrants like dreamers ARE America, I wholeheartedly disagree.

Americans who are Americans, all Americans are America. Immigrant needs should not supersede those of Americans. They are NOT the only hope for America’s future.

I will not be a party to a party that puts non-American’s human needs above American’s human needs. Immigrants needs to be given a chance to be a part of a more advanced society through an integration process. They should NOT be imported to solely to work low wage jobs and pay for drugs. I’m glad a Andrew Yang is able to steer clear of this issue and focus on Americans.

And, Democratic Candidates, really?! Your realistic performance in mud wrestling should get you a role on Peppa Pig and not in the Whitehouse, so, please, resist the urge and certainly don’t flaunt it. You embarrass me.

On the other hand, I wonder if Andrew Yang will regret saying that Human value and Economic value should be separated. I guess he can’t really, since one of his two major proposals is actually proposing a social credit to account and store Human values. My own interpretation of Capitalism is that Capitalistic Humans believe that money represents and serves Human value. An American Capitalist would not separate the two any more than an Italian Catholic would not separate the holy trinity,… or a Chinese Taoist would separate the Yin and the Yang. The unique relationship between Money valuation and Human valuation of things, actions and situations is exactly why we think it’s so great. Lacking that, Capitalism is just another banal attempt at organizing human interactions with nothing sacred attached.

Money buys happiness with superior reliability.

On this day after the Democratic Presidential candidate debate, days before Christmas, all I can think of doing is to praising Money.

OMG! fuck yeah! it’s over!

OMG thank you fucking gods Silicon Valley looks over.

Honestly, this TV show come at a difficult time to write a TV show like this. I mean between bitcoins and deep AI… and the Trump presidency life is more fun than fiction.

Also, I hope the authors and allllllll his technical advisors and consultants actually ran out of material. Does that mean that we’re at the wits end of the likes of Gates and Ellison and … all the VC’s that consult does this show? for absurdity?

this last bit where compression un-does encryption was all the rage, possibly because compression suddenly got really good due to “deep” style algo’s, maybe two to five years before the show. Basically if you can reliably compress all encrypted messages, it means you know something’s about the message which is either the encryption method or the encrypted message.

It’s interesting that the show illustrates the problem with Tesla auto-pilot. Some how, the end… seems like the beginning of something really bad…. and the worst part is that the bad sequel might take place in real life.

I’m glad the show is over. I hate it when the single Chinese character person, sampled out of a quarter of the world’s population, just happen to be evil… and everyone else is great. Like literally, they’re like great more than great can be…. every stinking racist character on the show except for the Chinese character.

I guess this is like a thing white guys do where the guy takes his dick out and waves it in the wind and says, look at my huge dick, no shrinkage even in the morning San Franciscan wind. That they write and act these thoughts out just to show that they can do it, get paid, and have a good laugh at it all at the same time.

Great. Now you’ve done it. Please put it back and let’s return to normal civil living. I hope you enjoyed wasting your life.

The Report

Just saw the new movie on Prime Video about the making and publication of the report on (the failures) of American Enhanced Interrogation Techniques. The story centers around the research and publication of the report circa first few years of Obama’s presidency.

I used to think Feinstein should be removed from senate for her failings being on the Senate Select Committee from a time before 9/11 through the exercise of EIT. But if she did what she did in the movie to bring the bad stuff to day light, maybe I was overly critical?

But still, shouldn’t someone get some blame for 911 and the subsequent useless application of EIT’s ?? Foremost, not discovering and stopping 911 seems like such a bad thing. Why isn’t there a report on that ? Why isn’t there a report on what the IC is prepared to do in the future in terms of forcing cooperation from enemies?

Watching the Senate discuss and debate is so boring. Nobody is changing anybody’s minds…. it’s such an act… but so poorly performed. Can they at least act like anything matters?

I feel very unhappy with how my tax dollars were spent and it seems the only way to change it is to elect someone else or run for the office.

Consider my tax dollars paid for my income in 2018. A big part of it may have gone to paying inefficient and uncompetitive farmers of America in subsidies to offset the Chinese tariffs. On top of that, I have to spend more for Chinese goods. In what part of the world out side of a farm is this fair? Why can’t American farmers be men and standup and compete with the world on production? It’s not like we don’t have the sciences or machinery. We invented most of the science and machinery for this stuff. Farm subsidies should only include Yang style UBI and maybe some tax relief on the real estate taxes for the farm lands. They can choose to stay lean, leave the land fallow, or they can choose to work, but effectively. What they cannot do is to just take my money and grow fat, all the while wasting energy, polluting environment, while pretending to farm.

Yeah, but strategically, we must have food, you say, that’s why we subsidize farmers. If the whole world dies of hunger, we can still eat. The problem is not that we need strategic capabilities to feed American mouths. The problem is that they are inefficient and unable to farm as effectively(cheaply) as foreigners. I mean, this is where the country either stands up and say we are independent of the rest of the world(and put the nose to the plow and get to work), or it plays nice to get what it needs. It should not choose to cuddle it’s farmers at cost to the entire population.

Why don’t they do a study on that too? I am so dissatisfied with the people we pay to do things…

But it was a good deed, to expose those inefficient and ineffective torturers.


Chinese Spam Phone Calls

How come nobody has taken it upon themselves to find these robo-callers that target Chinese speaking people? Today, in late 2019, I received 3 different calls in an hour all speaking Chinese. Initially, I thought they were targeting those silly Chinese people who rely on the Chinese embassy or DHL, but soon I realized that whoever is responsible for making these robo-calls are not event waiting to take my credit card numbers. They just hang up as soon as I pick up. This is starting to feel like some kind of public defamation of Chinese people. By impersonating Chinese spam callers, the perp is trying to grow hatred for Chinese speaking people.

I wonder who in the public is a suspect for systematically and persistently inciting hatred among Americans in late 2019.

The worrisome thing here is that we always believed there are white hat hackers out there who are willing to serve justice and the public good. But in this case, no one stood up to identify the hackers making these spoofed spam phone calls. It has been years since these spam callers came online and nobody is willing to take up the effort to stop them.

Maybe all the white hats are mostly Chinese-hating white supremacists? That’s not unbelievable. Maybe the FCC or whoever else has legal jurisdiction over the phone lines are all white rats who couldn’t dream of a better way to make America hate Chinese people more.

Why has no one made any effort to stop these spam callers?

No, it would not make me happier if they started speaking Cantonese or Hokkien or Russian or Hebrew or Spanish or Vietnamese or any other language. And I would be just as worried about the sullied reputation of those races–all minority races here have suffered very bad racism when it was unchecked and they should never again. Hatred by a single race, is a root for hatred by any race, and we should not have any of it.

Of course, my future self could laugh at my naïveté when it is discovered that this was the first AI generated virus that took people decades to eradicate… in that case, we really should try to stop critical infrastructure from disruptive foreign invasions. Can we get Bill Gates on that? Let’s drop some big bombs on this bug!

In other fateful words

Has anyone ever considered refining the label of Artificial Intelligence into different and intersecting labels:

  • Human-made Intelligence (HMI) is a machine or system that is deemed intelligent and is originated by human with the intent of it being intelligent.
  • Nature-made Intelligence (NMI) is a machine or system that is significantly influenced by the occurrences of nature that are not through human intelligence.

Most machine learning system could be considered HMI but after it learns from or interact with the world outside of human influence sufficiently, the learned intelligence will needs to be considered as NMI as well.

Another example would be evolved algorithms. The randomness explicitly used by the evolving machinery is uncontrollable by humans, therefore an evolving program is HMI but an evolved intelligence is also NMI.
