Canada bragged on its low insulin prices, and then found itself shocked and amazed that someone would take it up on the offer. They have cheaper prices because they still use animal-based insulin as opposed to the more expensive methods used in the US. In addition, insulin is a big deal in the USA because of demographic differences in diabetes diagnoses:
In 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes.
The rates of diagnosed diabetes in adults by race/ethnic background are:
- 7.4% of non-Hispanic whites
- 8.0% of Asian Americans
- 12.1% of Hispanics
- 12.7% of non-Hispanic blacks
- 15.1% of American Indians/Alaskan Natives
After adjusting for population age and sex differences, average medical expenditures among people with diagnosed diabetes were 2.3 times higher than what expenditures would be in the absence of diabetes.
In 2017, direct medical costs for the beetus were $237 billion. It is pretty much its own government program at that point. Worse, much of this is wholly preventable with lifestyle changes.
Despite all the kvetching of the Left, Trump is achieving his goal of American autonomy and self-sufficiency. The point is to make everything here that we need and to cut off the flow of American money to China, which was the brainchild of the Manchurian Candidates we got into office with Clinton and Obama. A vote for the Left is a vote for China, but Trump is counteracting this by “fundamentally transforming” our economy so that it is useless for Leftist tax-and-spend wealth transfer to China.
A thousand years ago, not news. Today, another diversity crime, as a “German” Syrian stabs a “German” Kazakh in broad daylight.
The race is on! We have found nearby planets that we can inhabit, in the relative sense of “nearby” implied by space travel, and we just nearly got wiped out by an SMOD that our scientists missed. We are living on borrowed time. The race is on to get our act together, purge the defective from among us, and take those who are able to think to the stars. Or we die forgotten, another heap of rubble drifting through endless space with no one to care that it perished irrelevant.
This is just like the warning labels we add to everything. “Do not inspect gasoline tank by torchlight” and “Do not eat packaging materials.” We are at war with nature. Nature does not believe in a state of complete safety, but humans crave that more than anything, so they try to beat back and neuter nature so that humans feel good. In order to do this, they must defend against the human beast, which requires neutering those, too, through a philosophy of egalitarianism. Eventually the entire world will be covered in warning stickers, no one will die an unnatural death, and no one will reproduce either and the species will die of terminal boredom. In the meantime, the South’s cause was morally just: resisting the encroachment of progressives and bureaucrats who want to cover the world in factories so that humans feel safe and can make a profit despite being low-born proles who really should be doing nothing but mopping up floors for more naturally talented people.
As for wearing the hat again in New York City, he says he’ll think twice before doing it again.
“It’s sad to get beat up for wearing this hat. This is America,” Turan said.
Not anymore. You can thank the Left for that! Funny how this story fell into the media memory hole. Should the media register as agents of International Communism, since they are clearly influencing our elections with their fake news?
The universe has a sense of humor sometimes.
“Robots And Racism,” a study conducted by the Human Interface Technology Laboratory in New Zealand (HIT Lab NZ) and published by the country’s University of Canterbury, suggests people perceive physically human-like robots to have a race and therefore apply racial stereotypes to white and black robots.
“The bias against black robots is a result of bias against African-Americans,” lead researcher Christoph Bartneck explained to The Next Web. He told CNN, “It is amazing to see how people who had no prior interaction with robots show racial bias towards them.”
How do we know? Apple made a killing selling computers in white when every other laptop company offered only a choice of black or grey. Was that racial bias against African laptops? The absurdity of this is made manifest by how much attention, and thus funding and promotions, these careerist scientists get from making up nonsense like this study.
Remember back in 2015 when “the” problem was a lack of diversity among the SEALs? Guess they fixed that one the same way they always do, which is by relaxing standards. That allows in lesser people of every race and gender. Then, suddenly, we have a quality control problem. The next war should be easy for China to win when our rainbow affirmative action transgender military goes out there and blows itself up.
The whole point of being a Big Tech baron is to transfer 10% of the value of your nutty unsustainable over-hyped company into something of actual value like farms, railroads, oil refineries, or land. That way, you can walk away from the disaster and remain quite rich while everyone else gets slaughtered trying to trade the now-worthless stocks. The “apocalypse Amazon” scenario is that Amazon destroys brick and mortar business — mainly because no one wants to go out and wander in the diverse, politically correct, crass mass culture world — and then collapses. At that point, Walmart can set whatever prices it wants and you will pay them.
Everything on the Left is a shakedown. “We found something that you cannot say ‘NO’ to without looking bad to your peers, so pay up!” is the covert refrain of these ideological grifters. In the meantime, the real answer to the environmental problem, which is using less land for humanity, seems to not be on the table, because it means that someone might actually have to sacrifice and stuff.
ASAP Rocky has been giving evidence at his trial in Sweden, where he’s accused of assaulting a 19-year-old Afghan refugee.
Sweden conceals migrant crime, but they certainly crack down on anyone who fights back, and in this case the Race Card did not work for A$AP Rocky.
Prosecutors say New Aryan Empire began as a prison gang in the 1990s but now engages in narcotics trafficking, witness intimidation and acts of violence, including attempted murder, kidnapping and assault.
If you are going to be a political organization, you cannot be connected to drugs and crime. This kind of image does nothing to help us on the Right, and seems designed to hurt us.
This coming transition, meanwhile, will be the result of people having fewer kids—a product of rising incomes and levels of education, especially for women and especially in less-wealthy countries.
Essentially, modernity kills people off by turning them into individualists who are dedicated to their jobs. This means that the third world will rise and replace the first world, who will die out from having spent too much effort on their jobs and not enough effort on their personal lives. Individualism, as it turns out, has a U-shape curve: you start out dedicated to the external world, then get more individualistic, but as others do the same, you become dedicated to them and end up with just as much restriction on you, except that in this case, you are slaving away for appearances and not reality, so your life is totally wasted and eventually you give up and die out.
Democrats have finally figured out that the Hart-Celler electorate is not interested in white people. China is hopeful for a Harris presidency in 2020. It should make the ensuing war even easier.
Birthright Mexican, in car full of illegal Mexicans using fake identity papers, is shocked and surprised that border patrol throws him into detention with the rest of the Mexicans behaving in shady ways. Now he wants to sue, but the Left is not rising fully to his defense, mainly because they want this issue to go into the memory hole. This means that he will get a six-figure job at an NGO instead as a “spokesperson.”
