It was scheduled to start at 8:00 a.m. It started about 10 minutes early in Ascarate Park. The money for the event came from the American Rescue Plan, where the Biden administration created 1.5 trillion dollars out of totally recyclable electrons. The politicians who receive the money must find a way to spend it. Gun turn-in events are a way to expend money. reported significant...

    In San Antonio, Texas, at the Alamodome parking lot, a gun buyback is planned from noon to 5 p.m. “Buyback” is an Orwellian term designed to give the impression all guns come from the government.

A more correct term would be gun turn-in because the guns are turned in to the police to be destroyed.A flurry of gun turn-in/”buyback” events have been scheduled recently for Dallas, El Paso, and San Antonio, Texas, and for three cities in New Mexico. Much of the money for these events comes from dollars created by...

    A leading mind in the development of artificial intelligence is warning that AI has developed a rudimentary capacity to reason and may seek to overthrow humanity. AI systems may develop the desire to seize control from humans as a way of accomplishing other preprogrammed goals, said Geoffrey Hinton, a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto. “I think we have to take the possibility seriously that if they get smarter than us, which seems quite likely, and they have goals of their own, which seems quite likely, they may well develop the goal of taking control,” Hinton said...
