Rand Paul: I’ve Spent More Hours With The President Than Any Other Senator

Sen. Rand Paul has preemptively thrown his support in the 2020 presidential race to incumbent President Donald Trump, during a Sunday interview with MSNBC with Kasie Hunt where he opened up about his close relationship with the President.

U.S. Nuclear Force To Phase Out Floppy Disks By 2017 Despite $80 Billion On Federal Upgrades

If you asked most children what a floppy disk is, they wouldn’t have the slightest clue. While most computers today do not even use one – a sign of progress – a recent report states that the U.S. Pentagon is still using 8-inch floppy disks from the 1970s to operate its nuclear weapons. This should be a disturbing revelation on many counts. Seemingly undeterred by the lucrative spending allocated towards the military budget, (about $598.5 billion just in 2015) the Office of Management and Budget noted $80 billion of it was to be allocated towards maintaining aging computer systems.
