cyber nuke the bastards



Cyber War. Fight it. Win it.

According to U.S. officials, North Korea was behind the Sony hacking which resulted in the cancellation of the nationwide showing of a major motion picture. This is a cyber Act of War.

What should America do? How should we respond?

Here is what we should do:

America should cyber nuke all the asshole countries that try to cyber attack us. I say "Cyber-nuke the bastards! Hack THEM. And shut down all their electric grids, internet access, cell phone networks, banking systems and all other services that a government needs to function. Shut down their whole country. Shut their asses down. Bankrupt them." That will teach our enemies not to cyberfuck with America.

That is how America needs to respond to cyber-terrorism. That is how America needs to respond to a cyber Act of War. Anything else is weak. And anything else won't work.

As of 2015, let's not ignore cyber terrorism. Let's not "talk nice" to cyber attacking foreign countries. Let's not give in and appease foreign nations who cyber attack us. We need to stop being a wimp nation. Let's be strong and active. Let's protect our country. Let's cyber-nuke the bastards! Now is good.





Obama cheapens American lives



Once again, Obama cheapens American lives

Prisoner exchanges under the Obama Administration has cheapened the worth of Americans, has made the lives of Americans worth less.

Obama released 5 Guantanamo terrorists in 2014 in exchange for ONE American soldier. Terrorists got 5 of their assholes back for the price of 1 American. That makes a terrorist worth 5 times as much as an American!

Later that same year, in December, Obama traded 2 Americans imprisoned in Cuba for 3 Cuban spies held by the U.S. In other words, Cuba got 3 spies back and it only cost them 2 Americans. That makes a Cuban worth 1 1/2 times as much as an American.

Hey, Obama, stop cheapening the value of American lives! I, as an American, am insulted. If the American government is going to do prisoner swaps with our enemies, at least do them on your bullshit "fair and equal" basis. 1 for 1.

In fact, here's a news flash for all you liberal American politicians in Washington: One American is worth more than ALL the freaking terrorists!






Rev Al Sharpton is NOT the voice of black people




Welcome to America, 2015. The land of the racial protest. Brought to you by Reverend Al Sharpton.

Wait a minute. Is Al Sharpton really the voice of black people in America? In a 2013 Zogby poll, commissioned by BET, 24% of the black people polled said that Al Sharpton spoke for them. 24%. Less than 1 out of 4. That means that 76% of black people do NOT support Al Sharpton as the voice of the black community! Fully 3 out of 4 black people do NOT support Sharpton. Yet he acts like they do. He speaks for only one out of four black people yet white America cowers before him. Rev Al Sharpton does NOT speak for the majority of black people in America. He is NOT the voice of the black community. He just has a sharp tongue. Al Sharptongue.

I for one, am sick and tired of self-appointed anti-white reverse racists telling me that whites, and cops, are all racists. Hey, America, let's put a stop to all the "automatic reverse racism" bullshit. We can start by not catering to, and not cowering before, Reverend Al Sharpton.

And, no, writing this does not make me a racist. Or racist because I'm white. Racist? I had a black girlfriend 40 years ago, before most of today's racial protesters were even born.





ugly should be covered by insurance



Now, in New York State, insurance companies can no longer deny transgender New Yorkers the right for gender reassignment surgeries and other treatments.

Other states with similar rulings include: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, Vermont, and also Washington, D.C.

A transgender is a person who is non-conforming to their sex that was assigned to them at birth. Transgender is independent of sexual orientation. The terms gender and sex have been explained thoroughly in academic literature. Sex is what an individual acquires by birth so it is physiological or biological. Gender, however, is a category a person gets assigned to by themselves or others.



OK. Elective sex change surgery for transgenders is now covered by insurance. If that's the case, what about non-sex-change cosmetic surgery? Like gender, what if "beauty" is assigned to yourself? What if someone is ugly but acts like a beautiful person? Someone who is ugly but thinks of themselves as beautiful? Let's call them Transbeauties. Shouldn't THEY also be covered to undergo surgery to physically match the outer person with the inner person, like transgenders? Why is only transgender surgery covered? Shouldn't surgery in order to transform someone from one thing they are into another thing they want to be, in this case ugly into beautiful, also be covered by insurance?

If state governments are going to force insurance companies to cover elective sex change surgery shouldn't they also force insurance companies to cover "Ugly Betty" surgery?


And no, I am not transgender-phobic. I was writing a satirical literary essay. If you have no sense of humor you didn't laugh when you read the essay. And if you don't know what satire is, you probably didn't laugh either.





my car has been recalled



"Ford Motor Company is recalling roughly 65,000 Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, and Fusion Energi sedans from the 2014 and 2015 model years. According to a statement from the automaker, the recall is meant to fix a software problem that could allow vehicles to roll away under certain conditions."

Roll away??? My freaking car can "roll away"? That's just plain scary!

Why on earth would ANY car manufacturer be allowed to sell a vehicle in the United States that is DEFECTIVE and DANGEROUS??? Don't the car makers check the fucking things before they foist them on innocent and unaware consumers? Obviously not.

Ralph Nader, in his book, "Unsafe At Any Speed", was correct. And his book was written in 1965, 50 years ago!

Defective and dangerous vehicles allowed to be sold to consumers. And allowed to transport your family and children. That's just plain wrong.

Where is the government when we need it? Out to lunch.





think




The Thinking Cap

Everyone has one. Few ever seem to put it on.





Racism Good For Democrats



All the current focus on race and racism in America is a big boon to Democrats. Why? Because it takes all the attention away from the endless and enormous failures of the Democratic administration since 2008. Failures such as a lengthy poor economy, continuing high unemployment, the explosive rise of ISIS, the Presidential condoning of illegal immigration, numerous high-level government scandals like the IRS, Benghazi, and Obamacare and the loss of power and prestige throughout the world.

Quick to jump on the racism bandwagon, the Dems gotta love it. No more focus on Obama and Co, no more focus on failures, the media focus has now completely shifted to protests and violence and racism nationwide. Protests and violence seemingly based on "immediate automatic racism" by local law enforcement throughout America, despite any evidence or facts to the contrary. It would appear that any use of force by police in America involving a white cop and a black suspect is now automatically dubbed racism--and automatically worthy of massive media coverage. And racially charged comments by Reverend Al Sharpton to fuel the fires.

The number one issue in America is now racism. That is very convenient for the Democrats. Incredibly convenient. The spotlight is no longer on the numerous and huge failures of the Obama Administration and the Democrats. The spotlight is now solely on racism. If I was a conspiracy theorist (I'm not) I would think that possibly the Democrats CREATED the racial tension and protests, in order to get people, and voters, to focus on something else besides the lousy job liberal Democrats have done, to get America, and the world, to focus on something the Democrats can't be blamed for: racism.

Racism. Bad for America. Good for Democrats. Now, they just have to find a way to blame the Republicans for it.





Crazy Clinton



Am I stupid or what?

She made the following remarks during a speech on December 3, 2014 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

Touting an approach she calls “smart power,” Clinton urged America to use “every possible tool and partner” to advance peace.

This, she said, includes “leaving no one on the sidelines, showing respect even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.”



I say: "Really? You mean we Americans should understand and empathize with ISIS' point of view? They want to take over the world and forcibly convert everyone to Islam. And if you refuse, they will behead you! And Hillary wants my country to show respect and understand and empathize with THAT point of view? Really?

And she wants to be President?

Hillary, you are a moron! Do America a favor and shut up. And, no, you can't be President!"





eat like a mouse



"... when we eat affects our well being as much as what we eat. The latest study, by researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla and published this week in the journal Cell Metabolism, fleshes out the limits and possibilities of using the clock to prevent or reduce obesity and to improve health.

The experiment showed that mice which were fed a high-fat diet, but allowed access to food for only 12 hours per day, were healthier and slimmer than mice given access to the same food for the whole day, according to the Telegraph.

Researchers also saw that skipping midnight snacks improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels in the mice, as well as reversed the effects of diabetes. Researchers plan to conduct the same experiment with humans, BBC News reported."



Yet another scientific eating regimen for better health. I dub this one the "Mice Diet". 12 hours a day food intake? I eat breakfast at 7 AM. So I can't eat anything after 7 PM? That means I would have to give up my tasty 9-10 PM popsicle snacks? I could -- but I don't WANT to! I already gave up almost everything: Fat. Sugar. Smoking. Drinking. Partying. Gambling. Staying up late. Younger women. Anger.

How should we eat? What kind of a diet/eating plan should we maintain? High-fat or low-fat? Low carbs or high carbs? Lots of fruits and veggies, SOME fruits and vegetables or No fruits and vegetables? Meat or no meat? Calories matter or calories don't matter? Eat small meals all day or eat for only half the day? Lots of diets. Lots of contradictions. And all of them claim better health. They ALL can't work!

Me? I'm sticking with my "balanced diet"; i.e. some of everything, not too much of anything.

And popsicles.






school teaches students to protest



Missouri Democratic state senator and University City school board member Maria Chappelle-Nadal said on MSNBC that her school district had taken steps to prepare their students to protest in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision, including changes to the school district’s curriculum.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid began by noting the large amount of young people who have been taking part in the Ferguson unrest. “Are there preparations in place, state senator, to deal with the fact that you could have a lot of young people out on the streets, a lot of young people protesting and marching?”

“Yes, absolutely,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “In fact, I’m proud as a school board member that we have prepared our students for this.”

“We have been changing our curriculum,” she added. “We are providing safe spaces for our students in our school district so they can protest
"



Are you kidding me? Since when is the government's, i.e. schools', job to school young kids on HOW TO PROTEST? Teaching school kids how to protest a legal grand jury verdict? How to protest a legal verdict you don't like? Teaching that in school, using TAXPAYER dollars???

Protesting a legal verdict you don't like is NOT a subject that should be taught in school. ANY school. Whatever happened to schools teaching the freaking three Rs: reading, riting and 'rithmetic???





dont wash your hands



Don't use this? Really?

A new study has revealed that restroom hand dryers spread more bacteria than paper towels into the air, on to users and bystanders.

Research at the University of Leeds found that air bacterial counts were nearly 30% higher around driers when compared with paper towel dispensers, the Daily Express reported.

According to the research, airborne germ counts close to jet air driers were found to be 4.5 times higher than around warm air driers and 27 times higher compared with the air when using paper towels



So if there is only an air dryer in the restroom maybe it's better if we DON'T wash our hands after using the facilities? Or wash our hands and then wipe them on our shirt?






head fob



Dude, where's my car?

Next time you're wandering through a vast parking lot, looking for your car, there's a weird strategy you can try: hold your remote unlocking device up to your head.

It might sound pretty crazy, but it will actually extend the device's range a bit — perhaps causing your car to light up, letting you more easily find it.

We were skeptical too, but a few physicists have actually conducted some experiments that prove it's true.



Stu Pitt says: It has to do with the electrical energy in your brain. So, to find your far-away vehicle, just hold your remote up to your head and extend the range.


Or you could just have your car fob implanted in your head.





food causes global warming


Recent findings that suggest modern farm production could be having a major impact on global carbon cycles could greatly improve today’s climate models and improve forecasting.

A recent study showed that a big jump in food production to meet rising food demands from a burgeoning global population is responsible for as much as 25 percent of the seasonal increase in carbon dioxide (CO2), according to Economic Times.

Chris Kucharik, a co-author of the study who works at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the research findings are “another piece of evidence” suggesting that things humans do on a large scale can have big effects on the planet as a whole.



Farms, crops cause global warming? Well then, let's ban food. No food. Now THAT'S a global warming diet!





Here comes Mexico



According to a Pew Poll

A 33% of Mexicans say that if they had the means and opportunity to go live in the U.S. they would do so, and 18% would migrate if they had the chance say they would do so without authorization.



The population of Mexico is 122 million. That means 40 million more Mexicans want to move to the United States. And 22 million Mexicans would come here illegally.

Where are they all going to live, in the White House?


And, no, I am not racist or anti-immigration. I am against ILLEGAL immigration. Because it's against the law.




texting neck



Frequently hunching over to read or write text messages could be damaging your spine, according to a new Surgical Technology International study that compares looking down at a cell phone to placing a 60-pound weight on your neck.

In the new study, author Dr. Kenneth K. Hansraj, Chief of Spine Surgery at New York Spine Surgery & Rehabilitation Medicine, set out to explain that people were demonstrating poor posture while using their mobile devices.



60-pound weight on your neck? Texting neck? Another good reason not to text.




Planet Of The Vapes


Planet Of The Vapes


"Vaping" is the water vapor emitted when you use an e-cigarette. An electronic cigarette. Electronic cigarettes have no tobacco, instead it uses nicotine and water vapor. E-cigs eliminate thousands of chemicals found in cigarettes, many of these chemicals are deadly. I stopped smoking and starting using e-cigs on December 7, 2011. I have not had a cigarette since then. Not one. I am a "vaper", one who vapes. I even have a hat that says "vaper"!

Millions of people have stopped smoking and started vaping. It's a revolution. It's a multi-billion dollar industry. Earth is now becoming "the planet of the vapes".

Who vapes? EVERYBODY vapes! Even mice.



And Leonardo DiCaprio


And old women


And young women

And, of course, ME.



It's a new world. A world without cigarettes.


Welcome to the Planet Of The Vapes




World Toilet Day



World Toilet Day

Today is the second annual World Toilet Day. (I kid you not!) World Toilet Day is an event raising awareness of the 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation - and the problems that brings.

This years’ theme is equality and dignity with the organisation, in co-ordination with UN-Water, campaigning to end open defecation, a previously unmentionable topic, faced by one billion people daily.

In India around 818 million people defecate in public. In the Congo around 72 per cent of the population do not have access to an indoor toilet, while 80 per cent of Ethiopians, roughly 71 million people, also defecate outside.



Really? 2.5 billion people do not have access to a toilet and defecate in public? And liberal Democrats think AMERICA is a bad place??? You want America to be like the rest of the world? OK, we'll take away your toilet. Make you go to the bathroom outside, in public, like the rest of the world. Now THAT'S "fair and equal".




pet rabbits must be microchipped




typical pet rabbit in L.A.


From the Beverly Hills Courier newspaper:

"Pet rabbits in Los Angeles must be microchipped under a policy adopted by the Los Angeles City Council today.

The City Attorney was instructed draft an amended ordinance to reflect the requirement approved 13-0 by the council.

The cost of adopting a rabbit will go up from $56 to $71 in order to include the $15 microchipping fee. The costs include the $16 adoption fee, a $40 deposit for spaying or neutering, and the expense of microchipping the rabbit.

Last year, 918 rabbits were adopted in Los Angeles, according to city records."




The purpose of the microchip? The stated purpose of the microchip is to be able to return lost or runaway rabbits to the rightful owner. I kid you not.

Mandatory microchips for rabbits? Really? L.A. has many critical problems, including the worst traffic congestion in the nation, high unemployment, high taxes, high rents and real estate prices, high poverty rates, lousy schools, drought, gangs and other major serious issues. And the Los Angeles City Council is spending taxpayer time and money regulating RABBITS? Are you kidding me??? Apparently not.






The War On Women


Let's put the "War On Women" into prospective.

From AP Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Saudi Loosens Up and Lets Some Women Drive


"Under the recommendations outlined by the council member speaking to AP, only women over 30 would be allowed to drive and they would need permission from a male relative — usually a husband or father, but lacking those, a brother or son. They would be allowed to drive from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday through Wednesday and noon to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday ..."

"The conditions would also require that a woman driver wear conservative dress and no makeup, the official said."

Only women over 30? Only until 8 PM? No makeup? Only conservative dress? Really?


And America is a bad place for women???




stupid anti-gun law



"wait a minute while I load my gun"

From DailyNews.com

"LOS ANGELES — Gun owners in Los Angeles would be required to store their firearms in locked containers, or apply trigger locks when not using them, under an ordinance proposed by a half-dozen City Council members today."

“Parents always ask, ‘Is your pool secured, is your pet safe?’ But they don’t ask the simple question, ‘If you have a gun in your home, is it safely stored? Is it locked up, unloaded and the ammunition stored separately from the gun?"



I can just imagine what could happen when a gun owner in L.A. is the victim of a break-in and his or her unloaded gun is locked in a safe, or the trigger fitted with a lock, and the bullets stored in another place.

"Oh, hello burglar. Thanks for breaking in and trying to steal my possessions. Glad I caught you. Listen, could you wait 5 minutes while I open my gun safe and get my gun? And wait another few minutes while I get my bullets from another place and load it?"

One of the main reasons people have a gun in their home is for SELF-PROTECTION. To protect themselves and their property. From criminals. How can people protect themselves in their own home if they can't quickly get to their legally-owned weapon??? Passing a law forcing people to lock up their legally-owned guns? In their own home? And keep the bullets somewhere separate? Where's the common sense? Where's the reality? Where's the U.S. Constitution?

WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT CONTROLLING THE PRIVATE LIVES AND PRIVATE PROPERTY OF LAW-ABIDING PRIVATE CITIZENS, IN THEIR OWN HOME?




Los Angeles wastes another $1million


From the Washington Post

"If you're on the city of Los Angeles's payroll with a bright idea about how to make the city work better, there's now a million dollars waiting to help make that happen.


On Thursday, Los Angeles announced that it has launched what it called an "in-house venture capital fund" stocked with general city funds as part of the recently passed budget. As of now, city employees apply for an uncapped portion of the $1 million available through Innovate.LAcity.org.

The ideas will be evaluated by city officials, including representatives of the mayor's office. They will be looking, the city says, for plans that are both original and achievable: proposed innovations should be capable of being both implemented and evaluated within a year of funding."




I say: are you kidding me??? Rewarding city workers for fixing problems? That's the city's JOB! That's what they're there for!

Los Angeles has the worst traffic congestion in the nation, bad streets, high unemployment, high rents and among the very highest government worker salaries. And the city does little or nothing to alleviate ANY of these critical problems. Now they want to REWARD government workers even further -- with a million dollar "award" -- for "innovation"??? Government innovation is an oxymoron. And worse, the $1 million award is to be paid out of the General Fund, which is funded by the taxpayers? This idea is stupefying. Insane. And typical government thinking. And NOT innovative, just stupid and costly.

This Innovate L.A. idea is yet another example of politicians and bureaucrats being out of touch with reality. And being out of their minds. Another example of "government for the government, of the government and by the government".

To add insult to injury, the city will probably award the $1 million to the idiot who thought up this stupid idea!




minimum-wage-robots




minimum wage robots?

NEW YORK (AP) — The robots are coming. Lowe's is testing whether new robots on wheels can improve its customer service, like helping a shopper find a match for something as simple as a nail.

Four robots are being tested an Orchard Supply Hardware store owned by Lowe's Companies Inc. in San Jose, California.

The robots dubbed OSHbots look like white columns with two large black screens on either side of them, and wheels to help them move. They are equipped with 3D cameras so they can scan and identify items. And customers can research items they want to buy on their screen. Then the robot can lead them to the aisle where an item is located.



Stu Pitt says

Will robots eventually replace retail employees? Are robots the response to the increase in the minimum wage to $15 an hour? Will retail businesses soon use robots instead of low-level human employees? Undoubtedly. Robots are cheaper (no raises, no benefits, no pensions) and robots will always show up and do their job. No slackers.

Hmm. Robots replacing retail workers. That's the real world response to liberals, and liberal politicians, forcing business to provide a $15 an hour minimum income to unskilled workers. Soon, as more and more robots replace workers, there will be NO minimum wage workers. Only robots. Does that help unskilled workers make a living? No. There will be NO jobs for young people starting out. NO jobs for those with no skills.

That's what happens when liberals dictate to the real world: the people liberals want to help get royally screwed.




is-Hillary-a-moron?


Am I stupid or what?

While speaking at a rally in Boston supporting Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts Senator and Martha Coakley for governor, here is what Hillary Clinton said: “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs”

This defies and denies basic economics. Economics 101. Hillary has denied and defied the f-a-c-t-s. Denied reality. In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau data indicates small businesses are responsible for over 90% of net new jobs. This means that Hillary is obviously either misinformed or a moron! Misinformed or a moron. Either way, that's scary if Hillary wants to be the President of the United States. Do we want America headed by yet another liberal Democratic politician? Another liberal Democratic politician who is either ignorant of the facts, or totally denies them?




Quarantine-All-Doctors


Ebola is here. In America. Thanks to people traveling to the U.S. from Africa. People who include health workers working in infected areas in infected African countries.

Here's a message for Obama and the CDC ...

We, the people, demand that you protect America and Americans from Ebola.

We, the people, demand that you quarantine any American who was in Africa before they come back here. EVERYBODY. Quarantine them for 21 days BEFORE they come back. Quarantine them in Africa, NOT in the U.S.


Obama? CDC? Do your job. Job #1. What's job #1? To protect America and Americans.

Do your job. Do it now!

We, the people, do not
want Ebola in America!


--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

Obama names Ebola Czar

WASHINGTON (AP) — "President Barack Obama is naming Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and a trusted adviser at the Obama White House, as the point man on the U.S. government's response to the Ebola crisis.

Obama has been under pressure to name an Ebola "czar" to oversee health security in the U.S. and actions to help stem the outbreak in West Africa.

Klain has been out of government since leaving Biden's office during the Obama's first term. The White House said that Klain would report to national security adviser Susan Rice and to homeland security and counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco.

Klain, a lawyer, also served as chief of staff for Vice President Al Gore. He previously served under Attorney General Janet Reno in the Clinton administration."


Ron Klain



Ebola Czar? The Ebola Czar is a lawyer? A political hack? Who worked under Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Joe Biden? A bureaucrat? With no medical background???

The Ebola Czar is a loyal liberal lawyer???

Are you kidding me?

Obama, what are you thinking??? Oh, wait a minute, as usual, you're NOT thinking!

airport traveler in hazmat suit

One passenger at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C. is apparently not taking any chances. A female passenger dressed in a hazmat suit — complete with a full body gown, mask and gloves — was spotted Wednesday waiting for a flight at the airport.

I'm thinking of getting one too. And wearing it EVERYWHERE.






discovery-of-America



Columbus comes to America, 1492

Columbus Day. Celebrated in the U.S. in honor of explorer Christopher Columbus, and his discovery of America, in 1492.

Discovery of America? In 1492? No way. This is arrogant history by arrogant historians. How could America get "discovered" if millions of people had already settled here and had already lived here for thousands of years?

Native Americans discovered America! More than 5,000 years before Columbus!

Duh.






Wanelo-Rules!



Deena. You go, girl!

"Wanelo was founded by Deena Varshavskaya, who was frustrated with shopping in traditional malls. Her personal style didn’t fit a simple category and she wanted to shop in more unique places. She decided to create a social network that would make it easy to discover amazing stores and products from anywhere online.

Deena worked on Wanelo for more than two years using her own savings before attracting Wanelo’s first users.

In 2011, she moved to San Francisco and raised funding after 40 investor rejections.

Today, Wanelo is a team of over 30, and millions of people are using it to find and buy products they love."

Took her years. And 40 rejections. She didn't give up. Let that be a lesson to us all.




Crazy-California-Bans-Bags


Crazy California!

The State of California has now banned single-use plastic bags, forcing supermarkets and other large retailers to charge consumers 10 cents per paper shopping bag. Why did California pass such a stupid law? To cut down on environmental problems and landfill waste caused by dumping plastic bags like the ones we get in supermarkets to carry our purchases in. A good gesture? Sound environmental policy? Let’s see. Let’s take a look at the reality of the government banning plastic bags, and forcing retailers to charge a fee for paper bags.

The plastic bags people get when they shop for food and other items serve two purposes. First, they are useful for carrying the food or other items to their car and then into their residence. Secondly, the plastic bags are useful as garbage bags.

Why don’t people simply use the environmentally friendly reusable cloth bags for shopping? Some people do. They have to take the cloth bag(s) to the supermarket every time they shop for food. Oh great, another thing to remember. Yes, shoppers could keep the cloth bags in the trunk but the cloth bags could get dirty and possibly be contaminated by the other stuff in the trunk. Plus, I have seen a number of health reports stating that sometimes these reusable cloth bags can contain harmful bacteria, from having various foods packed in them. Health officials recommend that consumers wash the cloth bags EVERY time they use them, to avoid contamination. Yeah, right, just what people need, another chore. Why not simply use the environmentally friendly paper bag? Because paper bags often rip AND they make lousy garbage bags: liquid seeps through.

So that's why people use single-use plastic bags for carrying items they purchased and for garbage.

Now, let’s take a look at what happens when the supermarkets and other large retailers in California ban single-use plastic bags and charge 10 cents per paper bag. If the supermarket charges 10 cents per paper bag, people still need to have garbage bags. So, they would probably buy a 30-pack of 4 gallon Glad plastic garbage bags, costing about 12 cents per bag (that's assuming that ALL plastic bags are not banned). And consumers would still need to try and remember to take their bag(s) to the supermarket when they go, to carry their purchases out of the store. Let’s continue. If consumers bring a cloth bag to the supermarket, and don't wash them every time they use them, they might end up with an infectious disease. If they buy 10 cent paper bags they may just end up throwing them away and not using them as garbage bags, because they leak. So, in the end consumers will probably buy plastic Glad or Hefty bags, for garbage usage, and will still use the same number of plastic bags. Instead of getting plastic bags for free it would now cost consumers about 12 cents per plastic bag. Same number of plastic bags. More cost for the consumer.

In the end, will the ban drastically cut down on the billions of plastic bags supposedly clogging the sewers, clogging the rivers, clogging the ocean, or ending up in the landfills of California? No. All those "extra" plastic Glad/Hefty garbage bags will still clog the sewers, clog the rivers, clog the ocean, or end up in the landfills.

Banning single-use plastic bags. A good idea ... that doesn't work. The only thing this plastic bag ban by the State of California would do is make it more inconvenient and more expensive to shop for food and other items, for the 38 million residents who live, and shop, in California.

The plastic bag ban. Coming soon to a state and city near you. Is banning plastic bags a good idea? Or a stupid idea that accomplishes nothing except inconvenience and higher prices?

You decide.

I already did.

Congratulations to crazy California. For passing the stupid plastic bag ban, and for making the banning of plastic bags more important than creating jobs and helping the poor people of California.






Facebook-leave-me-alone!




I do. I HATE Facebook! Why? I am not interested in every little stupid thing that people I don't know want to me to fucking "like". AND, like every day I get a Facebook text message that reads, "Hi! What are you up to?" Annoying? Annoying as hell!

No, I don't want to DIS-member myself, I may want to use Facebook for business reasons. All I want is for Facebook to leave me alone!

So, finally, after receiving numerous text messages asking me what I'm up to, I found out that I had not turned off my Facebook Notifications. I did so. I turned ALL of them off. Hopefully now I will receive NO notifications from Facebook.

Facebook. More ever-present and intrusive than the government.






killing-Corvette-owners



From the Wall St Journal

GM has issued a "stop delivery" order that will interrupt supply of one of its hottest selling vehicles: the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette.

The auto maker wants to fix two potential problems with the vehicle before they leave the plant in Bowling Green, Ky., or leave dealer lots, spokesman Alan Adler said. An air bag problem affects about 2,000 Corvettes that are either at the plant or at dealerships, and a parking-brake issue affects an additional 800 cars, most of which are at dealers.

Mr. Adler said some cars are being inspected for a suspect part that connects the air bag to the steering wheel.

Separately, another batch of Corvettes are on hold because they may have been built with only one of the rear parking brake cables fully seated and engaged. The part must be inspected to assure the parking brake is operating on both brake drums.

A good friend of mine is a Corvette owner.

Yeah, Corvette owners probably need a working air bag and working brakes. Duh.

WHY didn't GM properly check the Corvettes, Corvettes with a starting price of $79,000, for safety BEFORE they sold them? W-H-Y were they selling cars that didn't comply with these basic vehicle safety issues???

Is GM trying to kill Corvette owners?




war-against-ebola



War on Ebola?

You've heard about the war on women. You've heard about the war on conservatives. You've heard about the war on the wealthy. Now comes the war on Ebola.

from Fox News: "President Obama has said that the United States military will begin aiding the response to an outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa that has claimed the lives of at least 2,100 people in five countries.

In an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press," Obama said the epidemic was a "national security priority"



Stu Pitt says: "OK, Obama, U.S. military boots on the ground, in Africa? A war against Ebola?

What about, instead of that, you use the military to stop the flood of immigrants who cross our border ILLEGALLY? Why isn't THAT a national security priority?

How about a war on poverty? American poverty. How about a war on unemployment? American unemployment. Why aren't THOSE national priorities?

How about a war on ISIS? ISIS may be coming to America. Soon. Why isn't THAT the #1 national security priority?"






ACT-OF-WAR



second American beheaded by ISIS


NUKE THE BASTARDS!

With the alleged beheading of the SECOND American journalist it is now clear that this is an ACT OF WAR. The SECOND act of war. Against the United States. Against us.

We, the United States of America are at war with ISIS. War. And Congress needs to officially declare it, needs to declare w-a-r. Immediately.

What kind of war?

A REAL war. A real war that, for once, we win. How? Skip the targeted air strikes. Skip getting other nations to do something. Skip the boots on the ground. Skip the long stupid ineffective fighting. It won't work. It won't stop the bastards.

ISIS NEEDS TO BE NUKED

In Syria and in Iraq.

Nuked. Dead. NOW.

Nuked by us, the United States of America. Just like we did in Japan, to end WWII.



I AM A LIFELONG AMERICAN CITIZEN. AS AN AMERICAN I AM OUTRAGED! I'VE HAD IT. WE NEED TO DECLARE WAR ON ISIS. NOW. WE NEED TO NUKE ISIS - NOW - AND BE DONE WITH IT.





terrorists-in-Texas



coming soon to a city near you?

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Breitbart Texas (Breitbart is a news syndicate providing continuously updated headlines throughout the day to top news and analysis sources) has exclusively obtained a leaked document warning federal agents about an ISIS-related terrorism threat across the entire US-Mexico border. Though the document focuses on the Texas-Mexico border, Breitbart Texas has confirmed that federal agents across the entire US-Mexico border have received the ISIS terror warning.

The document was released by the Texas Department of Public Safety and warned that ISIS was actively promoting and encouraging supporters to take advantage of the porous Texas-Mexico border to carry out terrorist attacks against US citizens.

In addition to the report, U.S. Border Patrol Agents confirmed that the U.S. Border Patrol agency was indeed taking the threat seriously. A Border Patrol agent in the Laredo Sector told Breitbart Texas that they had credible information that ISIS was attempting to find individuals and groups in Nuevo-Laredo Mexico to assist in gaining entry into the united states.

A Border Patrol agent in the El Paso Sector would only tell Breitbart Texas that a warning was issued to agents pertaining to ISIS.


WTF? ISIS is in Mexico? Across the border from El Paso, Texas? Organizing to attack the U.S.? And the President of the United States says he has "no strategy" to protect us? Are you kidding me???





how-to-stop-terrorists


Hey, all you morons in Washington. Want to know what to do about ISIS and all the other terrorist groups in the Middle East?


Here's a simple, efficient, effective plan ... it goes like this

The President of the United States gives a short press conference. Here is what the President says ...

"The Middle East is being taken over by extremist radical Islamic terrorist groups. The countries most at risk of being invaded or taken over by murderous radical Islamists are: Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia."


I speak now directly to the legitimate and moderate leaders in the Middle East. The legitimate and moderate government leaders of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

ALL of you moderate leaders in the Middle East better get your act together and get rid of the extreme terrorists in the Middle East ... before they take over YOUR country, and take your government, your wealth, your power, and maybe your head.

Speaking for America, we are not going to rid the Middle East of ISIS or ISIL or whatever the barbaric murderers are called. It is not OUR job to do this, it's the job of you moderate Middle East leaders. YOU need to clean out your terrorists. Get rid of them. Permanently. The extreme radical groups in the Middle East are on the move. And they are coming soon to a Middle Eastern city near YOU. Stop them. By whatever means necessary. Do it now. If you don't you, and your people, will be forced to live under extreme Islam and Sharia Law. Or die. The choice is yours."




And, if the president doesn't want to say that publicly, then he can say it to each of the leaders of the above Middle East countries privately, using his pen and phone.

ISIS problem solved. Without American involvement and without blowing billions of American dollars.




eve-of-destruction



The Eve Of Destruction
song performed by Barry McQuire

"The eastern world it is exploding Violence flarin', bullets loadin' You're old enough to kill but not for votin' You don't believe in war but whats that gun you're totin'? And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

But you tell me Over and over and over again my friend Ah, you don't believe We're on the eve of destruction

Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say Can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today? If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' away There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave Take a look around you boy, it's bound to scare you boy

And you tell me Over and over and over again my friend Ah, you don't believe We're on the eve of destruction

Yeah my blood's so mad feels like coagulating I'm sitting here just contemplatin' I can't twist the truth it knows no regulation Handful of senators don't pass legislation And marches alone can't bring integration When human respect is disintegratin' This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'

And you tell me Over and over and over again my friend Ah, you don't believe We're on the eve of destruction ..."


OMG. Is this a good synopsis of the world today or what? ARE we on the eve of destruction? Well, guess what. The above song, Eve of Destruction, was written by P.F. Sloan, in 1964. Yes, over 50 years ago.

Here's the link to the Youtube video of the song, performed by Barry McQuire: Eve of Destruction/Youtube






nuke-something



nuke something!

In 1945, U.S. President Harry S. Truman, in order to stop a non-stopping Japanese war effort, dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. That stopped Japan and ended the war.

What happened to the America that dropped atomic bombs on its enemies, nuking them into submission when they would not stop?

Why are we allowing foreign militant governments or rebels to attack their native population, why are we allowing foreign extremists and terrorists to attack us and/or continue to declare war on America?

Here's an idea ...

Nuke something.

One little nuke and all the nonsense stops.

After 9/11, I came up with the idea that the U.S. should pick a mountain in Afghanistan. A high mountain, a big mountain, with only a few goats on it. Then, we give out the map coordinates and notify the world media that, in 3 days hence, at noon, everyone should watch the mountain. For a special event. On live TV. 3 days later, at noon, we drop a low-radiation nuclear bomb on the mountain. BOOM! The mountain disappears in a huge nuclear cloud. No humans killed, maybe just a few mountain goats. The blast producing only minimal low-level radiation. No soldiers, no boots on the ground. No drones, no targeted air strikes. No freaking stupid ineffective diplomacy! No long drawn out war. One plane, one nuke, one mountain. Simple. Efficient. Effective. What's the message? The message is: "Don't fuck with the U.S. If you do, YOUR ass could be nuked next!" End of problem. The world gets quiet. The militant extremists get quiet. The terrorists get quiet. The dictators around the world get quiet and stop fucking around. All the aggressive nasty assholes around the world shut up and go hide in their palaces. Immediately. Peace reigns. For decades. Why? As crazy as the crazies are, as nasty as the nasties are, none of them want to be nuked. And we, the U.S., will have demonstrated - once again - that if provoked, we can, and will, do it.

America chose to nuke two cities in order to end World War II.

If we chose to nuke a mountain in Afghanistan after 9/11 we would not have any of the dangerous death-dealing foreign policy problems we have today. Today, we have another chance. Perhaps the last chance. Extreme times requires extreme actions. Nuke something. Nuke it hard. Nuke it now.
