U.S. Border patrol detains U.S. citizens

So in Montana a U.S. Border Patrol agent detained two women speaking Spanish. I told someone the reason I’m brushing up on my Spanish is because I just want a Border Patrol puke to say something to me and try to detain me.

It’s ridiculous – the U.S. has no official language. So I can just imagine the lawsuit that the ACLU is going to file. It ought to be a dilly. And I know phrases in Spanish, Italian and even a little Farsi. So I can wig a border patrol agent out.

Trump and his wall

So the Petulant Man Child in Chief (PMCC)is on the screen trying to defend his wall. One thing he said “Everyone wants to wall”. To which I replied “They should wall your ass in.”

If he really thinks a wall will stop the hordes of criminals crossing the border – note the sarcasm there, he is sorely mistaken. In fact the level of crime across the U.S. has been declining for years. Only the PMCC (See above) doesn’t read – not even Presidential Daily Briefs and so he just makes it up, or pulls it straight out of his ass.

Walls never worked. Need I mention one around Berlin? Or even the Chinese one didn’t help them against invading hordes.

The bigots don’t stop just like a certain battery bunny

So this time it’s in Kansas where they’re trying to say the the LGBT community is a religion so that they can discriminate against the LGBT community.

First let me say I have to lookup that Bill and pick it apart here. But I knew that the religious bigots would never stop. Oh the more overt bigots have faded into the woodwork but they won’t stop. If the Bill passes it’s sure to be brought up on challenge before the courts. Thereby costing the State of Kansas money to defend bigotry. Interesting when you think of it like that.

This little whereas clause grabbed my attention:

WHEREAS, All religion amounts to is a set of unproven answers to the
greater questions like “Why are we here?” and “What should we be doing
as humans?

I can answer the first and second – why are we here? Simple it started just after the event called the big bang, you know when the whole universe was a hot, dense soup. Then anti-matter and matter started forming. Eventually some of those gases gathered together, compressed and ignited forming stars. And those ancient stars spewed their guts providing carbon, oxygen, hyrdrogen etc. to spawn new stars and the leftover matter that didn’t ignite becomes rocky planets, and gas that didn’t have enough mass the gas giant planets. You’re getting the idea here right? We’re here just because. Isn’t that enough?

As to what we should be doing as humans – that’s a good one – we should be caring for our brothers and sisters, should be sponsoring legislation that isn’t hateful or disgusting, and shouldn’t be posting bills like the above. In fact if you want to get technical, what was Jebus all about? Love one another – that was the key message that you missed when you got stuck in the Old Testament when God was an asshole. How do you like it?

WHEREAS, The sworn testimonies of ex-gays, medical experts,
persecuted Christians and licensed ministers demonstrate that there is no
real proof that a gay gene exists, that the idea that sexual orientation is
predicated on immutability is not proven and that sexual orientation is a
mythology, dogma, doctrine or orthodoxy that is inseparably linked to the
religion of secular humanism; and
WHEREAS, The United States supreme court found that secular
humanism is a religion for the purpose of the establishment clause of the
1st amendment of the constitution of the United States in Torcaso v.
Watkins, 367 U.S. 488 (1961), stating “among religions in this country
which do not teach what would generally be considered a belief in the
existence of God are Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture, Secular
Humanism and others”; and

 

See that little block of text tips their hand. They’re trying to conflate being gay with secular humanism aka agnostics, or atheists like me.

Know what I say about the Bible – the KJV by the way if you didn’t learn that and you learned it through some other version you’re doing it wrong. :) And I have it on good authority that King James was a fellow homosexual. Interesting.

The whole bill spends a good portion of the WHEREAS clauses trying to tie the LGBT community to Secular Humanism but has no fucking clue what Secular Humanism is. It’s laughable. Go read the whole thing here and you’ll see what I mean.

In a nutshell as I alluded to earlier – this Bill doesn’t stand a chance. I’m assuming cooler heads in the legislature of Kansas will quash it sooner than later – or tie it up in some committee in perpetuity. And with a Democratic governor it’s sure to be vetoed which I believe requires a 2/3 majority in most state constitutions to override. But if by chance they do succeed in the override, be ready for court challenges out the wazoo. Seriously.

The bigots will be dragged kicking and screaming into the future.

Microsoft Windows 10 Timeline

Well I see Microsoft added the timeline icon – and I don’t need it. Just open Windows Explorer and you’re dumped into most recent files anyhow.

This is why I say Windows is going in the WRONG direction.

But as I did with that god damned stupid search box I shut off timeline. It doesn’t even show up now. Ut si!

To turn it off right click on the task bar and un-click Show Task View Button.  Bye bye timeline.

More on why I don’t trust doctors or med providers

You know, someone and I get into it because I have a very dim view of the medical profession. I often see we’re just a short distance from Torquemada in the way we do medicine. Doctors and surgeons are too ready to excise instead of restore. To ready to push a drug. Too ready to say things that are utterly and completely ridiculous.

One argument we had was over Dr. Eric Berg – he’s now pushing xylitol which I find abhorrent. Why? Because in other of Dr. Berg’s videos he’s extolled the virtues of Stevia/Erythritol which I actually like. And my least favorite non-sugar sweeteners are xylitol, sorbitol and saccharine – nasty chemical aftertaste with those.

You know there’s something I learned as a child – follow the money. Because once you do you start to understand that Doctors and NP’s etc. haven’t gotten much training on Nutrition. And then I realized Berg, Berry et al all publish books – and they go out and speak and they’re trying to sell books.

Plus there are MD’s how I not only seriously dislike but wanted to punch out. One of which I’ve written about before. He’s telling Keyron that he needs to eat 3 meals a day, that a potato is fine, etc. And that eating less than 3 meals a day resets the metabolism essentially lowers it. But Keyron brought up something interesting, if that were indeed the case then the Jews released from Nazi camps would have looked like beluga whales.

You see cognitive dissonance is a real thing – and when you experience from alleged professionals it causes you to re-evaluate your trust in said professionals. Especially those on YouTube. Because if you follow the money you immediately know what agenda they are pursuing.

When Microsoft Screws the Pooch

Oh Windows 10 had me cursing. You see about a week ago Microsoft pushed an update that broke notifications, timer functionality etc.

This morning I go to use my computer only to discover it had restarted itself. And now notifications don’t perpetually show 1 open notification and the timer works again.

It’s like the bad old days with NT3 and NT4 – you used to apply service packs with great trepidation because they would frequently break things. And here we are full circle. It’s funny I’ve been with Windows 10 from near the beginning and I can see the gradual improvements, what in Bluetooth and network connectivity, etc.

It’s interesting to know Microsoft must have caught a full ration of shit for the update before this one and had to push the fix post haste. I mean really – a 64 bit OS and you don’t do full quality control when you make service packs for it? Really? What the fuck is going on inside Microsoft?

Watching documentaries on the Dark Charisma of Hitler and other docos.

So I watched the BBC series called the Dark Charisma of Hitler. The Germans really were sons of bitches back then and they rolled over Europe without much resistance. No their biggest error was invading Russia, a lesson they could have taken from Napoleon.

So another suggested video was about how the Czechoslovakian people after the conclusion of World War II – they persecuted the Germans in the Sudetenland. Part of me says the Germans got what they deserved.
