President Donald Trump said he would be signing an executive order later Wednesday that would end the process of separating children from families after they are detained crossing the U.S. border illegally.

The early to mid 1960’s had the best looking cars.  Late 1960’s were not bad but the mid decade cars were the best.

The 1950’s was good for cars too.

There is probably a longer blog post coming about this, Real Soon Now but here is the flash skinny.

  • Jetpack stats is great to get you started but it is very basic. Need something more.
  • I hate Google so I’m avoiding Google Analytics.
  • I do not want to install scripts on my server. I want a remotely hosted solution with the data on somebody else’s server.
  • I don’t have high traffic and I’m not selling anything or serving ads so I don’t need anything fancy.
  • I hate companies that do not say straight up how much their service costs and if they have a free option.  Obfuscation has become way too prevalent in the marketplace. They want you to sign up first then tell you what is available.  Not worth my time.

There are some really good solutions out there but they fail on one or more of my points listed above.

Many of the old players have gone dark. There are many new players that I’ve never heard of.  We’ll see.

Any suggestions as to who is good any why?

During the summer of 1937, Britain was so full of spies that posters were put up in public areas warning people that “Silence is safety, Now more than ever – forget what you hear” and “Be like Dad – keep Mum.”  Although most people were alert, no one expected a group of clean-cut teenage boys to be guilty of spying.

Executive Veggie Order #1: Pork and Beans, Refried Beans, Baked Beans are a vegetable.  They might already be a vegetable but this is to clear up any lingering doubt or guilt.  The science behind this is irrefutable based on New Math and New English.  Beans have for too long been marginalized by Deep State types within the FDA.

Ergo, by Official Executive Order the above named beans are a suitable replacement for green vegetables, especially those I don’t like.

I’ve toyed with this idea for years, and maybe somebody is already doing it, I wanted to start a blog that was just totally made up, bat-shit crazy, conspiracies, but presented straight faced like The Onion.

Stuff like: Obama is buying up all the tomatoes in the world and shipping them to a secret base in Antarctica to feed a colony of UFO Aliens who like tomatoes or Ancient Romans invented fuel injection so efficient that the oil companies are actively suppressing all knowledge of it or Atlantis was located where Lake Michigan is now before the last Ice Age.

The problem is I don’t think I could pull it off.  I don’t have a good enough imagination to post that kind or stuff regularly nor am I a good enough writer to make it sound convincing.

But the other problem is, people would actually believe this stuff today.  I’m hearing about groups that actually believe in conspiracies way weirder than anything I could make up and nobody bats an eye!  Which kinda scares me if I really think about it.
