Mayor Sessoms is Delusional, and it’s contagious!

Mayor Sessoms is Delusional, and it’s contagious! and he’s going to spend millions of Virginia Beach Taxpayer trying to woo Amazon to open their new “Co-Headquarters” in Virginia Beach. That will never happen, because Amazon wants:

  • The company wants to be near a metropolitan area with more than a million people. (Ok they do meet that one)
  • It’s looking to attract top technical talent. (really, not really a tech hub)
  • It wants to be within 45 minutes of an international airport.(you really can’t fly from ORF to anywhere, without changing planes)
  • It’s looking for direct access to mass transit.(Nope, not even if the “Tide” was built to the oceanfront already)
  • It needs 8 million square feet to expand its headquarters in the next decade – roughly the same size as its current base in Seattle, which has 33 buildings, 23 restaurants and 40,000 workers.(Think about it… Add >20,000 vehicles to Virginia Beach’s crappy roads)

While in contrast,

  • Northern Virginia has more a million people handy…
  • Northern Virginia has a large tech community to draw from…
  • Northern Virginia has 2 Airports that actually fly directly to Seattle, and third nearby…
  • Northern Virginia has an existing Mass Transit system…
  • Northern Virginia has an ass ton of available office space…

So if you live in Virginia Beach, you should let your city council members and your Mayor, know how you feel, and that the city should focus on real needs like flood prevention, fixing the paralyzing traffic, and the myriad of other issues that are causing hardships for the taxpayers, you know important things like an Arena for NBA and/or NHL teams that will never come, maybe Arena football…

CNN, WTF

Stuck as a captive audience in ATL with CNN on almost every screen, and I see promo after promo for non news programming, cooking shows, travel shows, cooking travel shows, gardening shows…

Are they going the way of MTV, and not having any news on their channels fake or otherwise, just like MTV has no music on its channels…

Thinking their fake news scam is just a promotional stunt, because we all know there’s no such thing as bad publicity…

Range Therapy

I came to the shocking revelation on my way home from D.C. when I stopped at Green Top, that I have not gone to the range in 6 months, and that is a terrible thing…

I purchased a target stand and some backers as well as a hanging steel target at Green Top, because at my new range its pretty much bring your own stuff, no more fancy schmancy CSA for this kid…

Targets

I had a great time out there, but I also became acutely aware of how important it is to train and practice, because I shot terribly, but I still had a good time.
