I guess it’s time once more to address the “digital illiteracy” and lack of focus of lawmakers and those running for office once more with the latest frick and frack routine with the latest news. It’s the big white elephant in the living room and once more stirs up a lot of debate. Oh it is getting so tiresome listening to such as this is just psychology gone whacked out for lack of a better way to say it. Sure we have an apology but did he really mean it? I think he really believed what he said. Trouble is that when you converse with crowds that have the same stands, you start believing what is “not real” and this was loud and clear and again makes for big news rating. Ho hum, just one more digital illiterate that keeps the world and lawmakers from focusing on what is important. If he slipped once on this topic, what’s to stop him from doing it again and what we heard was what he feels and the public apology doesn’t mean much. Time to get out of the race and let someone with some real intelligence get in there.
I have many posts here on this topic and it’s a dog and pony show for the most part and the attack on women’s health is ridiculous and makes the US in our political world look kind of stupid to other countries. I guess these folks have not come up to the real world yet to where this stuff is viewed as just plain out stupid. Here’s a back post that was done here in May of 2011, so again been a focus here for a long time and the tech folks on the web see this with the “default” topic coming back into the limelight every time they need “something” to take a stand on, well this it dated folks so find another one.
Digital Illiteracy Still Plagues Law Makers–Severe Focus on Abortion Rights Proves It–Is This Where Our Lawmaking Knowledge Leaves Off or Even Begins? Scary…
Fact is that lawmakers need to step up to the plate and use some of the same business intelligence that corporate companies use as they are being buried in the dirt and sadly at the same time, they bury us with them as we suffer. They don’t get that servers running 24/7 programmed with queries and algorithms are running the country based on what parameters are entered by those who write code. They couldn’t even recognize a tool for modeling new laws when it was presented to them and thought IBM Watson was just for game shows…well maybe Washington is nothing but that today, a game show.
IBM Watson Capabilities Being Pitched to Financial Industry-Congress Must Not Have Felt They Needed This So Further Behind We Fall With Effective Intelligent Lawmaking
So IBM did what any company would do and looked at another market, like Wall Street and look who’s using the technology to create more algorithms to use formulas to get more of your money. Algorithms move money an that’s what happened over the years and the big mortgage scam could not have happened without those algos. So while this side show continues Citibank will be using some new technology for some new algorithms and queries to figure out how to get more of your money..Algorithms are written for “desired” results and some actually get written to deliver “accurate” results but the two are not always the same..looks at who’s got the money..done by automation with queries and algorithms…
IBM Watson Going to Work At Citigroup on Wall Street–Congress Didn’t See Big Data As A Tool (Hadoop Framework) When They Had Their Chance…For Consumers The Attack of the Killer Algorithms–Chapter 22
Actually the above link was part of my ongoing series called “The Attack of the Killer Algorithms” and if you scroll down on this page there’s a couple videos and links to all Chapters. I would also like to thank all of those folks who are searching Killer Algorithms with search agents today too as it helps get the word out and educate consumers as to how this all works behind the scenes. Also, when it comes to an answer for taxes, excise tax the data sellers and again the lawmakers are so tied up in women’s health they can’t seem to get to this point to where it’s a pot of gold for revenue. Companies make billions doing this with getting their data for nothing and the profits for free. Time to tax it is this process is built in to doing business every where you look and that excise tax on tires kind of irks me every time I have to pay it when I see corporate America on this free ride due to digital illiteracy.
Start Licensing and Taxing the Data Sellers of the Internet Making Billions of Profit Dollars Mining “Free Taxpayer Data”–Attack of the Killer Algorithms Chapter 17 - “Occupy Algorithms”– Help Stop Inequality in the US
Here’s a good video on that topic and I guess we need the counter part video at this point on “How idiots shape our world” you think? Either that or maybe I should be writing about “The Attack of the Digital Illiterates? (by the way you can find this video front stage on every page of this blog if you scroll a little)
I am just so tired of flat out stupidity and the dog and pony shows that go nowhere with lawmakers that hang on to emotional issues like this as it does nothing to help the US economy and gets more ridiculous every day. Like I mentioned above you get folks talking things up that are maybe pretty far removed from the truth and it’s an old psychological game that thinking minds play on each other, “well if Joe wrote and said it’s true, it must be true” and then when they expose this to the rest of the world who knows better, they crash and burn. It’s called the old “building teams” concept and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as it’s the truth and not a fragmented belief that is far from the truth.
Heck I want to ask now “is this guy bi-polar” <grin>. We have enough issues without too many “bi-polar” type rhetorics in there trying to make laws as you can see the results of what appears to be “bi-polar lawmaking”. I said this to make a point and this is not an attack at all on mental illness, but maybe a call to action to see if this does exist with some lawmakers, you think? What is the “mental health” of our lawmakers, inquiring minds want to know:)
Now for my idea below, here’s a better topic that desperately needs attention and is a way to generate tax revenue from banks and corporations that reeling in the money in off the backs of US consumers and nobody’s minding this show and we all suffer because all of this is over their heads…digital illiterates. Corporations and banks have to just love this distraction with women’s health issues as they can keep working in the background and make more money.
Take notice is this is your hard lesson today on the the reality of what is happening with digital illiterate lawmakers and those running for office. BD
“Devaluate the Algorithm” And “Tax the Data Sellers”–A Cure for Both Healthcare and an Economy Based Heavily on Intangibles–We’ve Lost Our Balance
Republican leadership has a not so-subtle-hint for Todd Akin: They would like the Missouri Senate candidate, who remarked that “legitimate rape” rarely results in pregnancy, out of the race — and sooner rather than later. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has pulled $5 million in ads and multiple senators have demanded he step down.
“Congressman Akin’s statements were wrong, offensive, and indefensible,”NRSC chair Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) said, offering a not-so-subtle suggestion that Akin step aside. ”Over the next 24 hours, Congressman Akin should carefully consider what is best for him,”
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was more to the point in a Monday morning tweet: “Todd Akin’s statements are reprehensible and inexcusable. He should step aside today for the good of the nation.”
