Another batch of my commentary of what's been happening in the news of late...
Chinese organ harvesting
Honestly, does this really surprise anyone? This is communism taken to its logical conclusion. If you exist solely for the state's good, then isn't this a duty? Really, I think it's interesting to see people at work/on the media try to proclaim the benefits of the Chinese system, of "socialized democracy", yet refuse to acknowledge that this is an outcome of their beloved system.
In case you didn't see, Colorado officially made it so that women can walk around topless, since it's "discrimination" that men can do so and women can't. What does this do for groping? Somebody touches a man's chest, no big deal. What about if somebody touches a woman's in Colorado now? This is lib-thought at work.
That's wicked enough, but to further add to the problem, people in Oklahoma are now having to put up with their kids seeing naked women walking down their streets as well. Apparently, Colorado and Oklahoma have some form of alliance where if Colorado passes something, it instantly passes in Oklahoma as well.
This is beyond me. You've go two different states, two different people groups, two different cultures. Why would you ever forsake your sovereignty and independence to be chained to the stupid decisions of a people not your own?
SD card murder
My main thing here is twofold:
1) How stupid of a murderer do you have to be to videotape yourself committing the act?
2) Who finds a strange SD card laying on the road and thinks, "I need to put this in my laptop."?
California HAM ban
California has elected to no longer allow repeaters to operate on public lands without paying substantial rent fees. So we've got a part of the country that's prone to earthquakes, wildfires, landslides, riots, and power outages and the public officials decide that punishing the group of volunteers who help with disaster relief communications in such situations is the route they need to go.
California doesn't pay for these repeaters; the HAMS do, out of their own pocket, because it's a hobby that they enjoy, and can use to save lives. But no longer.
Man dies from California power outage
So because of lib-though, California is going down the toilet. Their infrastructure can no longer even withstand a 20-30 mph wind storm. The natural decision? "Well, let's just shut down the power for a month. That'll make things better!"
This is just the first of many deaths to come from this stupid decision, I guarantee it.
There's been a ton of noteworthy events hitting the news the past week. Here's my thoughts on what's been going on:
Colt stops making AR-15s
I was blown away to hear this. I think that Colt's really shot themselves in the foot here (no pun intended). They're claiming that it's due to market demand. That because there are so many AR-15s out there right now, that they really don't have any market incentive to produce more.
I'm not really sure if I buy that or not. For starters, they're still making them for law enforcement and the military. Why is it that only civilian models are no longer being made? I've been told the reason they aren't making civilian models anymore is because they priced themselves out of a market.
Maybe there is something to that. I've always found Colt firearms to be prohibitively expensive. Regardless though, doesn't brand loyalty really play a factor? And AR-15s have been flying off the shelves the past several years. Why does nobody else seem to be having a problem?
That's why it makes me wonder if there isn't more to this; if it's a bowing to some sort of political pressure. I think that there's going to be a whole lot of others out there with similar suspicions, and I think they're going to start boycotting other Colt firearms as a result.
I really don't think this was a wise decision for Colt.
Hezbollah Spy Caught Scouting NYC
This is the making of every other spy movie ever. A sleeper cell agent that's been operating within the US for 10 years, scouting potential targets and gathering information the entire time.
He received explosive training, potentially attempted to assassinate a suspected Israeli spy. He showed up in the US in 2000.
All the Blackface Scandals
Am I the only one out there who doesn't really think this matters? If somebody wants to paint their body a different color, who cares? How many movies have revolved around this (e.g. White Chicks, Tropic Thunder, etc.)
I fail to see how this is in any way derogatory or racist to anybody.
What I do think is interesting is how the Left finally has to tear themselves apart on this one. "Oh yeah, some of our guys have done that too."
Somehow, major media seems to make it ok when they do it though.
Siberian Smallpox Explosion
Russia seems to have a knack for accidental events of this kind. Remember the 2016 anthrax outbreak among Siberian reindeer? www.foxnews.com/health/anthrax-outbreak-in-russia-kills-child-sends-dozens-to-hospital Biological warfare is creepy. If you really want to delve more into the history behind current biological warfare and germ agents, I highly recommend reading Ken Alibeck or Richard Preston.
Animals Matter Most
Further proof that modern society views animals on the same level, if not above human life. What good mother would place a vicious animal right beside their 3 year old son?
I really agree with Joel Salatin on this one. We've become so separated from the land - from how real life works - that we've developed a twisted view on animal life. When most peoples' daily interactions with animals only revolve around pets that are stuck in an apartment all day long, they think that every other wild animal out there is just the same as their precious Fifi.
