Let’s Review 48: The Future’s Not What It Used to Be

The beautiful GM Futurliner – only nine survive & one sold for $4 million

Camille Paglia on Movies, #MeToo and Modern Sexuality: “Endless, Bitter Rancor Lies Ahead”     Women’s discontent and confusion are being worsened by the postmodernist rhetoric of academe, which asserts that gender is a social construct and that biological sex differences don’t exist or don’t matter. Speaking from my lifelong transgender perspective, I find such claims absurd. That most men and women on the planet experience and process sexuality differently, in both mind and body, is blatantly obvious to any sensible person.

 Ill-informed, Intolerant Bigots | The left not only hates non-Progressive Americans in general–they’re deplorable, don’t you know–but they absolutely loathe Christians, some of the most genuinely tolerant people on Earth. They also routinely and reflexively embrace any dictator that hates America as much as they, including Islamists, even though Islamists would be delighted to kill every Progressive they could get their hands on, and particularly many favored Progressive identity victim groups.

Twelve Days in Xinjiang: How China’s Surveillance State Overwhelms Daily Life – URUMQI, China—This city on China’s Central Asia frontier may be one of the most closely surveilled places on earth. Security checkpoints with identification scanners guard the train station and roads in and out of town. Facial scanners track comings and goings at hotels, shopping malls and banks. Police use hand-held devices to search smartphones for encrypted chat apps, politically charged videos and other suspect content. To fill up with gas, drivers must first swipe their ID cards and stare into a camera.

The quote for this week is from Chris Rock , 

I want to live in a world with real equality. I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month. I want to see white mothers on TV crying.

Guess the Race Cops: Woman Opened Fire At “Panther” Flick  

Bad Guy with Knife Stopped by Good Guy with AR-15 Dave Thomas witnessed the attack on his neighbor, retrieved his AR-15, and ordered the attacker to stop. “I poked my head out the door. There was a pool of blood, blood was everywhere in the hall. There was still a confrontation going on, there were about three or four people involved at this point. So I ran back into my house and grabbed my AR-15. I grabbed the AR-15 over my handgun — bigger gun, I think a little more of an intimidation factor. Definitely played a part in him actually stopping.”

In 19th century, Clark Stanley patented snake oil and advertised it as a painkiller, saying he had studied its wonders with the Hopi healers

Obama’s four words are killing politics  “‘The debate is over’ is something of a mantra. The debate is over on climate change; everyone, be quiet. The debate is over about early childhood education; everyone, be quiet. Lots of things are supposedly over, and you hear that from people who are finding the evidence inconvenient.”

A tidal wave of refugees is coming  President Trump’s reported comments about certain countries as sources of prospective immigrants may sound callous. He simply is ahead of the curve. The hour is already late to put a merit-based immigration system in place with effective enforcement against illegal immigration. Mexico solved its economic and social crisis of the late 1970s and early 1980s by exporting the poorest fifth of its population to the United States. With no prejudice to the Mexicans who chose to migrate, it is understandable why Americans feel put on. But that is tiny compared to what is headed towards us ten, twenty or thirty years from now. The mass of human misery headed towards the industrial countries simply is too great for us to bear. It is hard to see how humanitarian catastrophes of biblical proportions can be avoided. The responsibility of an American president is to make sure that they don’t happen to us.

    Although I’ve enjoyed most of Ben Stein’s work over the years, I believe I’m seeing his pupils begin to white out. Soon, his eyes will be just white balls inside his head, and his inner-DC will become complete.
    The second amendment is a military call to arms and specifies the irregular protection of Americans against the potential higher power of government. Whenever I hear someone say that no one needs a military style weapon, I can see that they do not really comprehend the 2A, and it is so fucking easy to understand. Gubmint is a brain disease that rots your thinking slowly.
    re: Chris Rock. No doubt, he wants to pre-screen white kids in schools to incarcerate them for having testicles. Deer hunt? Put him in jail! Using that argument, I’d find Mr Rock a cozy top bunk in a loony bin. Oh, I forgot. It’s comedy.

    A tidal wave of refugees is coming.

    I think this is true for many reasons. I think we, American citizens, have been set up for a fall. Our laws will not effectively prevent them from getting here and not effectively allow us to remove them once here. This is not by accident.

    Second point; The left, the Democrats have fairly rapidly moved further left, why left, even more left than their stupid left wings statements on TV indicate. The left/Democrats have openly admitted that their future power will be based on immigrants legal and illegal and on those immigrants, legal and illegal voting for them. Our laws do not effectively prevent the illegals voting and our legal system is intent on preventing any laws that would effectively prevent illegals from voting.

    Third point; If 20, 30, 50, 100 millions refugees/illegals begin to enter this country every year it will collapse our economy and our social infrastructure. There would not be enough money from taxes to pay for all the mandated benefits and the courts have over the last 50 years or so made it their business to enforce tax law and increase taxes when insufficient revenue comes in to support the mandates. Before it all collapses down around your head the local, state and federal governments will tax you into abject poverty and likely take your assets as well including your home.

    Point four; There will be civil war. It is impossible for it not to devolve into civil war. Your government will be taking everything you have to support illegal immigrants and refugees who will be robbing and raping you and our courts will make sure that all of this continues and cannot be reversed. This is unavoidable, all of these things will happen. You may not see it coming just as those on the Titanic didn’t see it coming but once it happens it will all happen fast.

    Point five; They are coming for your guns. Can you sense the quickening in this? They are coming for your guns and they will have them or most of them. Even your congressman that you voted for is now in favor of what is effectively gun registration and infringement of the 2nd amendment. Their goal is to flood the country with people who don’t like you and will vote for left wing politicians. They intend to take what you have and they will do this. But they do not want you able to fight back.

    Point six; There is no point six because if they get past #five you are done.

    The Democratic and Republican Party platforms have been artfully crafted to split the country by design. But people can’t believe they are being emotionaly manipulated on such a grand scale. 51 Republicans to 49 Democrats in the Senate, what a convenient quandry! At every crucial congress vote you see the BS deception revealed. Then its back to sleep.

    Left versus right my fat ass. They control the horizontal AND the vertical. Most Americans just want what they think is right for the country. So please make an effort and pull your head out. Your limbic brain stem is being played like a Playskool piano. Don’t believe the hype, brothers. Wake the hell up for crying out loud.
