Trump is not our savior, nor was he elected as such. He was elected to be our weapon. Teach your children. Harder still, be an example to them. Reason with those who may be reached, and will listen. Educate the foolish, the stupid, the ones too lazy and late to the party. It’s a zero-sum: every person you bring to our side is one less body you might have to oppose more forcefully if things go to hell. Thwart the terminally suicidally stupid at every opportunity. And don’t be shy about throwing every elbow, punching every nose, and gouging every eye you have to, in the process. Bullies only learn when they see their own blood, and feel the pain of their own punched nose.
Victor Hanson looks at The Limits of American Patience As interest costs rise and the debt grows, do not expect a big bang. Rather, we will see a whimper. Insidiously what was deemed untouchable, will turn out to be rather easily unfunded—whether it is a new bomber program, a Medicare prescription drug benefit, or social services for illegal aliens. It is not set in stone that half the country shall always pay no income tax. Because the country is exhausted at the lying and conceit, it will simply shrug and get on with the downsizing, as in “stuff happens.” (Even in relatively small areas of expenditures, does the United States care whether there is no more money for the Gaza strip, or remittances to Mexico shrink to a $1 billion a year, or Germany fumes that it has to devote 2 percent of its GNP on defense?)
The people in charge of social media firms spend so much time smelling their own farts, they truly think they can regulate what the world has to say about things. Again, people used to know better. Reality is that thing that does not go away when you stop believing in it and reality is, there’s no controlling public opinion. There’s no way to stifle dissent. The only thing that comes from efforts to do so is a violent response. But, the petty tyrants will only learn that lesson when the next Persian vegan shows up at their door.
Just getting to 80 percent of demand reliably with only wind and solar would require either a US-wide high-speed transmission system or 12 hours of electricity storage. A storage system of that size across the US would cost more than $2.5 trillion for a battery system.
YouTube is a racket: industrial copyright theft on a planet-wide scale. They get Gladys Scroggins of 27b Elm Street to do most of the active thievery – posting, say, her favorite Michael Jackson video – and then they become one of the biggest corporate behemoths in history by selling advertising off her theft, and tossing the occasional dime Gladys’ way.
There is a spot in the South Pacific called the “Oceanic pole of inaccessibility” or alternatively “Point Nemo” at 48°52.6?S 123°23.6 W. It’s the point on the Earth’s ocean’s most distant from any land — 2,688 km (1,670 mi) from the Easter Islands, the Pitcairn Islands, and Antarctica. There are two interesting things about this spot. One is that it’s used as a satellite graveyard. It’s conventional, when you can do a controlled de-orbit on your bird, to drop it at Point Nemo. Tioangong-1, the Chinese sat that just crashed uncontrolled into a different section of the South Pacific, was supposed to be dropped there. So were the unmanned ISS resupply ships. A total of more than 263 spacecraft were disposed of in this area between 1971 and 2016.
BILLY, don’t bring your games to school! Superb Nintendo Super Famigun Concept By Allan Williams A light-gun concept designed for quite possibly the greatest console of all time, the Nintendo Super Famicom (Super Nintendo/SNES). Inspired to look more like an industrialised object and less toy-like than the usual light-gun offerings, yet still retaining the aesthetics one would expect of early nineties Nintendo design.
You would not think to look at him but he was famous long ago for playing the electric violin on Desolation Row…. The fall of Milo Yiannopoulos In a fusty pink room in Chelsea, Milo is made into a woman. He wears a red and black dress. He is silent, transported somewhere I cannot reach. Miss Veronica Vera is the Dean of Miss Vera’s Finishing School for Boys Who Want to be Girls. “We weren’t sure,” she says, “if he wanted to go very over the top big bouffant drag queen look. That was what I was told initially. But when we got here we decided that he wanted to be more real – and pretty.
Repelling borders the old fashioned way: Botswana: Illegal Immigrants Beaten in Botswana
John Parker, a DNC member from Duval County, Florida, is facing heat from fellow Democrats because he slipped up and forgot to use the approved (although unnecessary and less grammatically elegant) phrase “people of color” and instead referred to them as “colored people,” which is not only unforgivable, it really should be a felony.
The #BlackLivesMatter Angle in Lesbian Coupleâs Murder-Suicide Mystery We may have finally reached “peak SJW” — a white liberal woman whose lesbian friend killed six black children, praising this murderous psycho as an “example of marriage and parenting” worthy of emulation. And, when her praise elicits (understandable) angry reactions from black people, she says this shows “how far we still have to go in race relations.”
