Why Trump won. Hint: Liberals are to blame.

I think the reason Trump won is the same reason the Tea Party was so successful in winning. Independents and Conservatives wanted to try something new. They were fed up with the same thing happening year after year with promises being made by both Democrats and Republicans, with neither side following through.

The problem is the media painted the Tea Party as a racist group that hated Obama—and liberals still think that. I remember many Tea Party leaders saying, “You don’t have to vote for our candidate, just don’t re-elect the the incumbent.” Liberals say they want change and they want to work together, but when they actually had the chance to get new blood into DC they chose not to. All they heard was the word “racist + Tea Party”, then they repeated it, and they ignored everything else.

Trump’s victory was partly because of how bad Hillary was as a candidate, partly because how upset the majority of America was about Obama’s policies—dispite how likable he is as a person, and I think mostly about trying a businessman (something new) in the White House.

Trump voters didn’t buy the media’s portrayal of him as a racist because the media has cried wolf so many times before we wouldn’t believe them even if it were true. But again, Liberals heard “racist + Trump”, they repeated it, and ignored everything else. They didn’t even realize that they were helping him to win, and they still don’t realize that with every ridiculous statement they make, they are actually helping him. They are setting the bar so low, that he just has to be an OK president to get elected again; and this could be a bad thing.

Pentax K10D Multi Exposure

The more I used the Pentax K10D, the more impressed I am with it. Not only is it cheaper then the Canon XTI, but it is in my opinion a much better camera. In fact it is better then every other camera in its class. No other camera in its class has built in image stabilization, a weather sealed body, 14bit RAW images, and so much more. Today I will be talking about the cameras Multi-exposure feature. This feature does exactly what you would think; it allows you to take multiple photos(up to 9) and combine them into one image.

You might be wondering how this is useful. Well, you could do fun stuff like make ghosts appear in you photos, or you can really put it to use, and use it as a ND filter. Say you want to take a photo of a running river, and you want to water to look like it really moves. Lets say that the proper exposure for this scene is 1/2s @ f/10. That will give you some of the flowing look you want, but not enough. With Multi-exposure you could do 9 shots at 1/2s @ f/10, and that would give you a photo of 4.5s @ f/10. Now your scene will really flow. Plus 9 x 1/2s will have a lot less noise then 4.5s at any ISO. This same feature can be used with night or astro photograhy to cut down on the noise.

I haven’t been able to test this out besides for the fun stuff, but I look forward to my first test at a river or creek.

Happy shooting 🙂

Does life on Mars disprove evolution?

Scientist believe that all life on Earth came from a single cell. Well, if scientists find life on Mars, doesn’t that disprove their theory. If they find a single cell on Mars, then why are there not other life forms, like on Earth. Where Is Marvin the Martian? Mars has been around just as long as Earth, yet we are the planet to have life? Just something for you to think about. Just because science thinks something is true, it doesn’t automatically make it true.

In case you thought Rosie was sane.

Paris Hilton was released from her 45-day sentence after only 3 days in Jail. Though I do think the punishment was a little harsh for the crime; It is not good for the Sheriff’s department to undermine the Judge and release her so soon.

Rosie, however, had a different take on things. Taken from her blog.

paris is free
praise the lord
as america awakens
from a deep sleep – Rosie

First off that quote is just ridiculous. Second, Rosie show some respect, and capitalize our country’s name.

Update: Judge orders Paris back to Jail to finish her term. I am now waiting to see what Rosie’s response will be.
