When my daughter was 9, she brought home from school a copy of a drawing of a penis. I was supposed to sign it to voice my approval of sex education.

 

I didn’t. In fact, no parent did.

 

Homosexuality is framed as a civil rights issue politically. No one ever talks about what it is.

 

But in public schools, sex education is taught in health class. Remember 9th grade? Penis, vagina, sperm, eggs and pregnancy. Can somebody explain to me how they’re going to teach homosexuality?

 

Will schools teach little boys how to give blowjobs to other little boys?

 

Geeks note: Human natural selection has created a bizarre sexual response. The genome evolved culturally in groups, and group survival was paramount, but sex within a clan does not add genetic variability. It also creates an alpha male situation, which also reduces variability. So, we’re designed by natural selection to select within the group and then cheat. The sexual instinct is so powerful, we hide our sexual cravings.

 

The story told in sex ed classes is oversimplified. That said, how do you teach rectal penetration and male on male oral to a 7th grader? To do this, you’d literally have to turn sex ed into a porn class.

 

And moms and dads are going to sign off on this?

 

Go to your annual pride parade. How many middle-class families with kids show up to see sexuality paraded down the street?

 

When president Trump twit-tacked Elijah Cummings over shit-hole Baltimore he exposed the dark underbelly of the democrats. They WANT blacks in ghetto’s, where they can control their votes. In return, they’re hypocrites.

 

On homosexuality, the situation is 1,000 times more explosive. Few people care about ghettos, but everybody cares about little white kids, especially their own.

 

The “Progressives” biggest problem is not that they’re wrong. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Their problem is they’re hypocrites. The solution to almost all of America’s problems is to become more conservative.

 

That said, the movement to “normalize” homosexuality is world war three waiting to happen. If you combine that with Obama style black activism, you have the potential to segregate America in ways we haven’t seen in the US since 1900.

 

The German American community in Buffalo in 1900 did not integrate. Wealthy families spoke German and sent their kids to school in the old country. In US cities, few wealthy families send their kids to public schools. Here in Buffalo, liberals spend between $12,000 and $24,000 a year in high school tuition so their kids don’t have to be exposed to liberal ideas.

 

When this is over, Peter Buttigieg may wish he stayed in the closet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Andrew Cuomo wants to deport New Yorkers.

 

 

“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Andrew Cuomo.

 

Can you imagine if President Trump said anything remotely close to this?

 

In the days after 911, New York’s firemen were spent, suffering from exhaustion and the effects of inhaling toxic chemicals. Thousands of VOLUNTEER firemen descended on NYC to bail them out. They worked around the clock to the point of exhaustion for NOTHING. These are the very people Andrew Cuomo wants to throw out.  

 

Under “progressive” governments in New York, the state lost IBM, Carrier, GE, Bethlehem Steel and 1,000 other companies. Most recently than ran Amazon out of town and told Chick-filet they couldn’t operate in airports because their owner is a Christian.

 

Imagine a state so pathetically overbearing that it’s illegal for Christians to sell chicken sandwiches.

 

Chuck Schumer’s attempts to bring industry to New York amount to begging, bribing and being lied to. New York spent $225 million  to build a plant in Buffalo. They promised 3,000 jobs, or $75,000 per promised job. The factory actually employs less than 1,000 and most of those jobs pay under the Sanders minimum wage.

 

Cuomo has thrown out gun manufacturers and oil drillers. It only makes sense that he’d throw out conservatives. He funded a commission to investigate corruption and then threw it out when it pointed to his friends. His biggest backer in this area was thrown in prison for bid rigging.

 

New York is way past the point where it can be reformed. It’s a total corruption mill. If Cuomo succeeds in throwing out conservatives, he’ll have stolen the mantle of Kim Jong Un. New York under the “progressives” has become as dictatorial and communist as any state in the US.

 

The only solution to New York’s government is bankruptcy. President Trump should remove its federal funding and let it fail.

 

 

 

 

 

41BC, after the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Roman empire went through explosive growth. Why?

Caesar’s hand-picked successor was his nephew, Octavian. As most school children learn, Octavian attacked the renegade general Marc Antony, main squeeze of Cleopatra, took control of northern Africa and expanded his empire. But why was Egypt so important?

Octavian was named Augustus in 37BC,

but in that year, Rome had already sent 100 ships to the Red Sea. The Red Sea lanes gave the Romans a shortcut to the Arabian sea, Indian ocean and the Silk Road.

Silk wasn’t the only thing Rome imported from Asia,

though it was probably the most important. They also imported chemicals, (fragrances, embalming fluids, etc.) spices, ivory but most critical to Rome’s armies, steel.

For something to be important as an import, it must be either not available or expensive in the importer’s country, and this was especially true of silk and steel. To be sure, the Romans had silk, but to the Chinese, silk was the basis of much of their economy. After 2,000 years of minute advancements, they had refined the manufacturing process to the point where hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Chinese laborers were cranking out thousands of tons per year of extremely high-quality fabric that no one else in the world could replicate.

In steel, the process was even more acute.

Roman steel was largely wrought iron, which is a low carbon form, molded into shape by heating and beating. Its low carbon content made it weak, heavy and brittle. Chinese steel could be cast into forms that were flexible, lighter and did not as easily break.

For the Romans, though, what was most important was not steel or silk, but something hardly mentioned in the texts. Branch banking.

To an empire, what you want is not important; what’s important is what you can buy. Rome could never have conquered China and taken its silk and steel. They had to buy it and to do that; they had to not only have money but move it.

 

Regardless of how powerful a country is, shipping gold across the seas is dangerous and expensive. The Romans, like the Greeks and Jews, solved this by using their temples as banks. Banks took in deposits and issued notes, promises written on paper in lieu of gold. If a person wanted or needed gold, they could have it, just as one who needs cash can get it from a bank, but if they don’t need it, it stays in the bank in their account. This meant the Romans did not need to continually ship gold to finance trade or construction, two things that require large amounts of money.

The Romans protected their temples with armies,

which was why locals kept their money there, but the real beauty of the steel and silk trade was Rome’s ability to tax it. The import taxes on steel and silk were as high as 25%, and the cost of these in the empire was staggering. It’s been estimated that a single bolt of Chinese silk may have cost the equivalent of 8 years of Roman wages. This gave the Romans the ability to create something that didn’t exist in 37BC. A standing army financed by wages and not plunder. Plunder may be a cheap way to finance a war, but you must keep finding new plunder.

In many ways, Bill Clinton, unwittingly, became the Octavian of his time…

though Octavian was a general and Clinton a draft dodger. Clinton’s claim to fame, (or infamy, as it may turn out) was to set the banks free. By eliminating Glass-Steagall and changing banking regulations, he set in motion a chain of events that led us to where we are today. A nation with a mammoth military financed through taxing and borrowing against trade.

Is this good or bad for America?

Like the weather, this is impossible to predict. On the one hand, the US has borrowed rivers of money. On the other, that river has bought us quite a lot. Aside from too many houses too many bars and too many malls, America has something else no one seems to notice. A gargantuan university system.
In Roman times, all roads led to Rome. The same is true here. 9 of the top 10 universities in the world and 35 of the top 50 are in the USA. Of course, you can get an education from a book, but that’s hardly the point.

A few years back, I lived inside the triangle engulfed by three universities, Harvard, MIT, and Tufts.

If you think of these institutions as places you get an education, you’re missing half the story. Harvard college is small, but its graduate school is enormous. The same is true of MIT and Tufts. The level of research going on in this triangle is staggering, and if you think it’s because of “American exceptionalism,” think again. The top students in these universities, as well as many of the professors, are from nearly every country on earth. As my daughter aptly put it when I asked her how many of her classmates in chemistry class at Wellesley were American, she said, “Just me and Eileen.”
To put this in its true perspective, America has 1,400 colleges and universities. The amount of money flowing through is probably higher than the GDP of 80% of the world’s nations. The amount of research being produced is hard to fathom, much less control.

Our Universities may be on the cusp of replacing what for 20,000 years has defined nations. Resources.

They are close to making oil obsolete. The effect on the USA is hard to fathom. Even though the price of computing has fallen by a factor of 3,000 in the last 20 years, the prices of oil and coal, on inflation-adjusted terms, have barely budged in the last 80 years. As Bill Gates once said, if the cost of transportation fell as fast as the cost of computing, you’d be able to buy a jet for what it used to cost for a neck-tie.

This has led to a one to one relationship between energy use and GDP growth. Imagine if this ratio changed by a factor of not 3,000, but just two. Imagine going from using 100 million barrels per day of oil to 50 million? It’s almost impossible to fathom. An electric car uses one-fifth the fossil fuel a gas or diesel powered auto uses. The US has 250 million vehicles!

The same is true of farmland, copper, and steel. We may be within a couple of decades of a family being able to produce almost everything they need to eat in their basements using as much energy as is created by a couple of hours on an exercise bike. In just the last two years, seed technology has raised some crop yields by 20% using the same soil and less fertilizer. Vegetables can already be grown in warehouses and can compete on a price basis with those shipped in from Mexico and sold in Walmart.

We’re close to being able to diagnose illnesses with a cell phone and where you can make love with your spouse that is 3,000 miles away in a hotel bed. We’re a decade away from being able to sit in a room and have a conversation with Einstein and your long-deceased grandmother.

Why is this important? For all of our history, the world has been ruled by empires, from the Romans to the Ottomans, the Han to the Ming, the British Empire to the USA. Imagine a world where everything you need is at your fingertips. Imagine a world where Empires no longer matter.

Is the USA declining, or, as in the case of Dinosaurs, are we becoming smaller and more sustainable?

 

Tell Me Again How Pizzagate And Comet Ping Pong Is Just A Conspiracy Theory

Tell Me Again How #Pizzagate And Comet Ping Pong Is Just A Conspiracy Theory

“Nationwide, the FDA said that last year it rejected nearly 16,000 food-related shipments out of more than 10 million that arrived in more than 320 ports.” FDA

This quote seems harmless enough. This means that about 2 one-thousandths of what is shipped in is bad, but it’s misleading. Only 2% of what comes in is checked.

This means of the 200,000 that are checked, 16,000 are sent back! This is 8%, a huge number.

The most frequent violators? Australia and Bangladesh.

This one stunned me. For the first 9 months of 2016, Australia and Bangladesh had multiple cargoes rejected for everything from mislabeling of drugs, to dangerous dyes and colorings to poison. Why we would import food from Bangladesh, a country where only half the toilets are hooked up to sewers is beyond me. Bangladesh issued a glowing report that 99% of their water has “better standards of cleanliness,

IF YOU IGNORE ARSENIC LEVELS!

Americans are FAT. One of the primary reasons is the explosion of processed and take out foods delivered by the massive trading cartels. Our trading partners should be responsible for paying for our food inspections. Period.

 

 

FLOOD OF FOOD IMPORTED INTO US,

BUT ONLY 2% INSPECTED.

PART ONE OF THREE

EAST LOS ANGELES, Calif. — At a sprawling warehouse here, two investigators from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration watched intently as 50 boxes of preserved bean curd from China were emptied into a grinding machine.

The monstrously loud apparatus worked its way through 1,800 glass bottles, grinding the glass and spewing out a stream of chunky yellow ooze that would be collected, treated and disposed of in the sewer system.

FDA investigators had decided that the bottles of bean curds were improperly heat-sealed and, as a result, were susceptible to harmful bacteria like botulism, which can be fatal.

The case of the destroyed bean curds was relatively straightforward: They had been flagged as suspect as soon as they arrived in port due to a defective heat seal and were sent directly to an FDA warehouse for testing.

That’s not always how it happens.

The FDA’s Los Angeles district is one of the busiest in the U. S., overseeing the inspection of more than half a million food shipments arriving through 24 ports of entry in the L.A. area. Through the port stream products like Cambodian rice by the ton, tapioca pearls from the Philippines, tea biscuits from China, sugar cane and fish from around the world.

In 2010, about 3,500 shipments here were refused entry because they were contaminated with filth, pesticides, drug residue or traces of salmonella, according to a News21 analysis of the FDA’s database of import refusals. Some of the imports contained unsafe color additives or were mislabeled. And some were even poisonous.

Nationwide, the FDA said that last year it rejected nearly 16,000 food-related shipments out of more than 10 million that arrived in more than 320 ports.

“If it comes in here and it’s bad,” said Denise Williams, a supervisor in the FDA’s Division of Import Operations in Southern California, “we’re gonna get ‘em.”

Except when they don’t.
