A Passing Phase: US industrial production was down 1.1% in May, making it nine months in a row of consecutive declines. This has never before happened outside a recession. Never.
Run/Hide: The FBI has accumulated over 400 million photos in its face recognition files, the better to make you feel safe. Never mind that the Face Recognition process hasn't been proven yet, it will be by the time your trial comes around.
Record Record: Atmospheric CO2 concentrations over Antarctica have reached 400 PPM for the first time in 4 million years.
Two For One: Hidden inside that Intel x86 computer you bought is another computer that you cannot access nor monitor, which can take over your machine and loot all of your files. It's a safety feature.
Easy Steps: Those who think they may want to overthrow the government want the government to make sure they have easy access to the weapons they'll need to overthrow the government. Guys, if you want to do something illegal, don't be shy about using illegally obtained weapons to do so. There are no valid arguments for civilians to possess automatic or semi-automatic weapons. Hunters should be able to get the deer with a bolt action rifle and a three shot built-in clip. Personal protection should be limited to 5 shot revolvers. A pump shotgun will do for chasing away burglars.
Without Comment: Candidate Clinton has received more money from US pharmaceutical company employees than all entire stable of Republican candidates.
Factually: If you cannot stand being a loser, don't become a leftist. "The only kinds of fights worth fighting are those you're going to lose, because somebody has to fight them and lose and lose and lose until someday, somebody who believes as you do wins." I.F. Stone.
The Piecetakers: Israel, which has as a percentage of area, stolen more territory than Putin, is somehow blackmailing the US into providing $40 billion in military aid over the next ten years in order to “upgrade” its aircraft and missile defense systems
and to defend against teenage Palestinian kids with rocks.
Not a complete waste, because the money will be spent on various
members of the US war machine – like those still making
and profiting from cluster bombs.
Memo For Mr. Sanders: Nearly half of Democrats want Bernie Sanders to mount an independent campaign for the Presidency.
