Would You Buy A Flying Car ???

I would if I had the money. Here's one from Slovakia (of all places):

Here's another from the US which costs $279,000:

Realistically, these will be toys for the rich. You don't want them wasting their precious time sitting in traffic with peons like you and me, do you?

Opiates Are FAR More Dangerous Than Terrorists

Opiates kill FAR more people than terrorists do. You can read about it here:

Q: Why then are we bombing ISIS, but guarding the poppy fields?

A: It's a win-win strategy - the right gets to make money selling weapons, while the left makes a similar killing by selling dope to our kids.

The only loser is We The People; but wasn't that always the intention?

A Congress Of Cowards

In 1776, the Continental Congress issued their Declaration of Independence, in support of which they pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, and their sacred Honor.

In 2017, with their nation falling down around their ears, the 115th US Congress did the bare minimum to keep the government open ... and little else:

We have gone from a revolution fought by brave giants to a Congress of parasites and cowards who care only about their own power and privilege.

And THIS is not the answer we need:

For a bunch of peace loving, tolerance spewing social justice warriors, it sure does appear that the new “progressive” movement in America is rapidly turning to Bolshevik tactics to force their will upon a free and non-violent people.

The latest example of a society on the brink of civil war comes to us from Portland, Oregon, where every year the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association kicks of the city’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade.

Except this year, there will be no parade. Organizers have cancelled the event amid threats of violence from groups referring to themselves as “Anti-Fascist.” According to The Washington Post, the reasoning behind the threats is reportedly outrage over the fact that the county’s Republican Party was given one of the nearly 100 spots in the parade.

There's no new Washington, no new Lincoln, no new FDR; but plenty of new Lenins and Hitlers.

USA is going away. It's replacement will be a political abortion.

Racing To One Trillion

Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are in a race to become the world's first "trillionaire". You can read about it here:

Meanwhile, more than one trillion human beings live in extreme poverty:

  1. Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population - more than 3 billion people - live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty - less than $1.25 a day.
  2. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
  3. 805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat. Food banks are especially important in providing food for people that can’t afford it themselves. Run a food drive outside your local grocery store so people in your community have enough to eat. Sign up for Supermarket Stakeout.
  4. More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.
  5. In 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition.

Bill's "solution"? Give them vaccines to reduce their fertility.

Jeff's "solution"? Build a supply chain to sell products on the moon.

What a pair of clowns.

BRICS Under Siege

The five BRICS countries have been trying to create a world system which is an alternative to the one the USA is forcing upon people. But now they are under siege:

(1) Brazil is encumbered with political scandals and a failing economy.

(2) Russia is threatened militarily by the USA.

(3) India is suffering from a disastrous economic decision to reduce the flow of untaxed cash in her economy.

(4) China is threatened militarily by the USA and by the North Korean mess.

(5) And now South Africa also is suffering from an economic slowdown. You can read about one aspect of it here:

In contrast, their "enemy" (the USA) thrives by printing more money and loaning it at near zero interest rates.

Will we ever see the end of this war? And who will win, who will lose?

Filth Is Fun ???

At the start of “Catastrophe,” Sharon (an Irish schoolteacher played by Sharon Horgan) and Rob (an American ad man played by Rob Delaney) meet in a London bar and proceed to have loads of sex, most of it unprotected. “A terrible thing has happened,” he tells her after learning that their six-night bacchanal has resulted in pregnancy. “Let’s make the best of it.” And with that, one of television’s funniest, filthiest, most realistic takes on the sweet mess of coupledom and parenting was born.

Sorry, but I don't buy it. Filth is just filth.

And if our children have become "a terrible thing", what does that say about us?

Please ... take this FILTH off TV.

Corruption In Slovakia

Many of my ancestors came from Slovakia.

Funny how things are the same all over the world.
