Let's start with the "little" stuff, shall we?
After a doctor's appointment yesterday, I stopped into a local eatery for breakfast. I generally have a book with me for such occasions. While I was reading and sipping my coffee a nice man came up and said, "It's so nice to see someone actually reading a book instead of having their face glued to a phone."
The sight of people sitting at a table with other people and all of them staring at phones is, in my opinion, just plain creepy. It's particularly offensive when the person is young - as in pre-teen.
The headline on Daily Mail today is The wait is over... Launch of Apple's new waterproof and wireless iPhone 7 with NO headphone jack and a dual camera kicks off. How many lemmings are going to rush to the store and spend hundreds of dollars for something that most people don't need?
A few articles down is How long would it take your kids to notice you'd been replaced? Hilarious video shows children oblivious to the imposters in their home (until the wi-fi goes down)
It's actually an advert video for the Dolmio Pepper Hacker. It’s a functioning pepper mill with a twist. When you start to grind pepper it shuts off WiFi, TV's and other electronic devices in the home.
In the video we see a cute little pre-teen boy, sitting at the table wearing a wife-beater T-shirt, a big fake diamond earring in one ear, and so glued to his device that he is completely unaware that his family has been switched out for strangers.
The parents are urged to buy a device to shut off the internet access. Is there any earthly reason the parents can't simply tell the little brat, "Put away your phone and while you're at it, go put on something appropriate for dinner?"
Moving on to the much more distressing stuff:
This article at Breitbart made me livid with fury:
Caterpillar Hires H-1B Foreign Graduates, Fires 300 American Professionals
Caterpillar is firing 300 American employees in Mossville, Illinois, even though it is continuing to recruit and pay foreign “H-1B” guest-workers to do the white-collar jobs sought by American professionals in the United States.
Caterpillar’s combination of white-collars layoffs and H-1B outsourcing matches the much-criticized decision by Carrier, a company in next-door Indiana, to outsource 1,400 blue-collar factory jobs to Mexico. read the rest so I won't be the only one pissed off.
Over at Zero Hedge we have this:
If Donald Trump Wins US Election, Will Hillary Clinton Nullify Results Because Of Vladimir Putin?
Call it “Plan B”…It’s all being laid out, right at our feet . On Google and Facebook, during US late night shows, through CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and New York Times.
It will be the final death of whatever was left of American democracy.
The test run was accomplished with few casualties during the Democratic primaries, where Hillary Clinton and the DNC assured victory by rigging the entire voting process.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz lost her job as DNC Chair, but found a better job with the Clinton Campaign, and then won her Democratic primary Congressional District in Florida with little difficulty.
Bernie Sanders, who had the election stolen right from under his feet, fell quickly in line with his masters, and pathetically kissed Hillary’s ring in an embarrassing display of beta manhood.
Now we are all being prepared for the ultimate con. The Ocean’s Eleven of heists. The Presidency of the United States of America. The preparation is well underway. read the rest and ponder it.
The Pope Videos:
Pope Francis, in an effort to stay relevant and hip, has been putting out little useless videos every month. Mostly they're just stupid. But this month he published one that is scary.
To quote Restore DC Catholicism:
Is it not enough for him to claim that not caring for the planet is some sort of sin? Or that not using plastic is more important than the millions upon millions of babies being aborted every year?At the 1:00 mark we see the main thrust in the words flashing up: "For everyone to contribute to the common good and to build a society that puts the human person at its center." Can the humanism be any more explicit? It is God who should be at the center of society, not man. But in this thing produced by the Vatican, we don't hear the Name of God or Jesus mentioned once. This is the idolatry known as humanism, plain as day for all to see (provided no one is wearing rose-colored glasses).
Unfortunately, the majority of Catholics today know so little about their faith that they'll fall for this crap. Fortunately, the majority of Catholics are not watching these silly videos.
Those same un-catechized Catholics will part with their hard-earned money to help the "less fortunate" through the yearly collections for the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.)
I've cautioned for years to never give your money to these scam collections.
Which brings us to:
The Money Trail: Why Catholic Bishops Are Silent on Hillary
The silence about Hillary Clinton is deafening. One hears nothing but crickets from the U.S. Bishops and Cardinals about the democratic presidential candidate’s radical pro-abortion stance, but for the banished Cardinal Raymond Burke.
Why are they sitting mute on the sidelines? How could they be conflicted between an abortion laden democratic platform and the most prolife republican platform ever? Seems like an obvious choice for Catholics. After all, St. John Paul II described life as “the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights.” What’s going on?
When in doubt, follow the money. This ecclesial trail is flush with cash. read the rest and witness the astonishing amount of money the feds give the USCCB.
Now that your blood pressure is spiking, allow me to close with something guaranteed to calm you down:
Donald Trump delivered a policy speech today in Philadelphia outlining his military perspectives and vision for U.S. military engagement moving forward. You can find the transcript HERE and below.
However, something a little different. Along with the transcript below we are going to present pictures of recent military and foreign policy events which Donald Trump seemed to specifically refer to. read the rest
