Please Vote for Hillary Clinton


In 2003 we invaded a sovereign nation with the goal of keeping weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of a tyrant. Now we face a similar decision. Even if you disagree with everything she stands for, Hillary Clinton is the only viable and sane choice for president.

My Daughter’s futures are at stake. Will they grow up in a country that can accept men acting the way that Trump does? Will Trump become a role model for the boys that they will have to deal with as they mature? God forbid.

To conservatives republicans who intend to stay loyal to their party’s nominee. The reckoning that your party must have will only be made worse by electing this demagogue scoundral. Your once great party and the House of representatives they control will still be able to prevent Hillary from achieving any major legislation that you stand in opposition to.

To my evangelical Christian family members in the midwest who think that Trump might nominate Supreme Court justices that oppose abortion and LGBT equality. There is some chance that he will but, but it won’t be worth sacrificing the values of decency and kindness that you hold dear.

To my Libertarian, Green and Independent friends who plan to vote for Johnson, Stein or McMullin. These protest votes will narrow the margin of Clinton’s victory and could effect the outcome. Until there is ranked choice / instant runoff voting, these protest votes are insignificant compared to the threat that Trump poses to our nation and our species.

To my “friends” who are repeatedly calling for an armed uprising after the election doesn’t go your way: you will find that not all liberals are pacifists. If you knew the hell of war, you would not be wishing for it. Go spend some time in Syria and your craving for violence will be extinguished.

For the good of our nation, Trump and Trumpism must be crushed in a landslide. The wider the margin of victory, the less chance that any post-election violence will spiral out of control. Let’s not take any chances.

I don’t believe that Hillary is the lesser of two evils. I don’t believe She’s evil. She isn’t perfect, she will make mistakes, but I am pleading for you to give her your vote.

Anxiously yours, -Henry Koren


SpaceX Falcon9 First Stage Landing

I really should update my blog more often. So much is going on in my life, unfortunately this space has gone stale.

In other news, SpaceX just landed the first stage of a rocket they used to launch a satellite into orbit, a monumental  milestone in space exploration:

Those are some happy rocket scientists!
