Second release

Getting out of the hospital again this afternoon. I am much too well known here.

The obvious

Stop the bleeding is obvious. More obvious is the 'leaders' of all parties are traitors to this country.

3.5% gets us mars.

Let's kill one myth to start... NASA needs more money. Quoting from the book I may never get published...
"Back in 1973, the total cost of the Apollo program reported to Congress was $25.4 billion."  Annual inflation from 1973 to 2015 was 4.15%.
That's $140 billion in 2015 dollars. 
NASA's budget today is over $18 billion per year which is $180 billion per decade vs. $140 billion for Apollo.
So how much would it cost to establish a colony on mars?

No matter what the plan, it should occur in two phases, the first could start today.

1) Cargo phase. Pick a spot and send 40 tons of presupply there. 10 tons being food. During this phase we are testing our human landers (Dragon version 3) Should take 6 to 10 years at $625m per year (6 or 7 FH per launch window. 2 tons per reaching the surface.)

2) Human phase (only after production rates have been established for water, breathable air, [methane] fuel and electric power and landers have a heritage) we send convoys of Dragon lander (2 crew per lander) with inflatable space at $200m per FH. Those inflatables are stored for landing to become farms and habitats on mars.

Finally got portable oxygen

Otherwise I'm stuck in a 9x9x9 ft room and the bathroom adjacent. The portable tanks aren't very, but two in my Jimmy allows me to get to outside appointments.

Hillary's desk

You have to ask the 'is, is' Clinton's the right question. It's not, "did it reach your desk?"

"It's when did you become aware?"

Hillary, knows all about, "What did you know and when did you know it?"

False choices

There is no ethical dilemma. A driver is expected not to kill. If a self driving car (SDC) kills it should not self drive. A person that kills has liability. Cars do not have.

A driver should override a SDC before danger. A SDC should never be allowed not to have a driver.

The programmer would otherwise be liable.

BTW, being released to outpatient tomorrow. Yea!

I need another 200 pages for the book I'm writing... I've run out of steam after about 35 pages (I like my ideas simple.) I've got about a decade or more of blog posts I can research for more material... I hope there's not too much redundancy but know the answer to that.

I'm dedicating the book to Rand, but Dr. Thomas Matula will be the unsung hero for all of his comments and challenges over the years. Others as well.

Another 200 pages... that should take about 3 months assuming I find enough topics each day to write about. I wish I'd kept better links.

My brother owes me $300 and came by to borrow more. Not likely. He's facing more potential jail time.

Rumor is I'll be getting out of the hospital soon. This was a sudden development since last word was I'd be here a few more weeks. I'm wondering if recent events brought about this change?

The hospital ignored a health care power of attorney by giving me a drug with human plasma in it. For me this is a serious issue and perhaps a legal issue for them. I don't know how I will proceed.
