School is !FREE! in Venezuela. A good, pencil-headed economist would assume demand would be infinite. A good Marxian would assume the kids are all smarter than Amerkan Rocket Scientists. Add Neil Tyson Degrauss to the US Space Scientist sample, and the proposition is at least debateable.
In 2016, the last year the Venezuelan government released enrollment figures, about 8.5 million Venezuelan children were attending K-12 schools. Now, that figure may have dropped to about 6.5 million, according to rough estimates provided by Hernández. One independent education group in Aragua state, just west of Caracas, reported that at the start of the current school year more than half of all students were no longer going to classes. In a TV interview in May, Education Minister Aristóbulo Istúriz acknowledged problems but blamed them on U.S. economic sanctions and pointed out that, in spite of the government’s challenges, public school remains free.
When a society fails, school becomes a luxury. It is a luxury that is only indulged when it offers something concrete and valid in return. Venezuelan schools probably offer nothing more in return for !FREE! than any other screwed up and dysfunctional communist workers’ paradise.
Let this be the fourth of July that we finally understand the need for us to peaceably separate or die. There is no bargaining with the messianic left. They are here to kill you. They will pretend to seek compromise at mostly your expense until they acquire the power to crap down your neck – after they have shortened you by a head. ANTIFA just consists of leftists who now feel empowered enough to be honest about who they truly are. Richard Fernandez has uncucked enough on this to see truth.
The Thing is older than one would think. And more voracious. The intellectual Old Bolsheviks thought their illustrious records would protect them from the ruffian Stalin. Bukharin who was eventually executed by Stalin once said “Koba, you used to be grateful for the support of your Bolshevik comrades.” “Gratitude is a dog’s disease,” Stalin shot back. It won’t stop at Andy Ngo. There is no safety from It.
So what is cost of a few lives in return for virtue? Nothing, if it’s the other son of a canine dying for his.
Oh boy. I would feel not the slightest lilt of sympathy or regret if parasitic lampreys were attached to this man all over his body. We can save them $Billions and send them f*ck back.
“Immigrants, including undocumented immigrants, pay billions of dollars in taxes,” said Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. Perez defended the democratic policy of providing free healthcare for illegals, by claiming that illegal immigrants would be paying for their health benefits with tax dollars. “This is not a handout,” Perez told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
“Immigrants, including undocumented immigrants, pay billions of dollars in taxes,” he claimed. “Democrats believe that you should be able to buy into a health insurance system…this is allowing people to buy into an insurance program, people who pay billions of dollars in taxes.”
I interupt my usual cynicism for something as Amerikan as The 4th O’ July….
Biden had one job in the eyes of many Democrats. Knee-grow control. White Democrats want the same thing Black ones do. Lots and lots of handouts at somebody else’s expense. As the perception sinks in that Amerika no longer has enough horse forms for everybody’s cute, little girl to get a pony, competition sets in. Biden was supposed to make the gubbermint into a gimme machine for urban, white liberals. Knee-grows and Hispanics take too much of that swag, if they aren’t kept down near the base of The Democratic Party power pyramid. When Kamala started her knee-grow on the bus sobbery, Biden was suppossed to say “You grew up in Berkeley, B!tch.”
If Biden can’t get this done, White Democrats will gravitate towards either The Bern or Liz Warren. The race war in Amerika has already started – on the Left.
Cybercriminals have learnt something very valuable in the last couple of weeks: in order to regain access to their data, cities in Florida are prepared to pay out huge Bitcoin ransoms to hackers. Less than a week after the city of Riviera Beach, 80 miles from Miami, unanimously voted to pay US $600,000 worth of Bitcoins to an extortionist who had locked their IT systems with ransomware, a second city has come to the same decision. The ransomware which hit Lake City is thought, like the Riviera Beach attack, to have entered IT systems after a user mistakenly clicked on a malicious link in their email.
A good ransomware attack can’t be left up to chance. These are pay-for-click inside jobs. The hackers either recruit government employees or subvert them with a thick, fat enevelope. Nobody where I work would still be around if they “accidentally” clicked on one of those “HOT XXX BABES” links and infested the entire IT network. People will increasingly have to deal with the moral risk of compromised governments as the Amerikan Empire continues to go downhill this 4th of July Holiday.
“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision. I am embarrassed for Nike,” Ducey tweeted early Tuesday morning regarding its decision to nix the Betsy Ross sneakers. “Nike is an iconic American brand and American company. This country, our system of government and free enterprise have allowed them to prosper and flourish. “Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism. It is a shameful retreat for the company. American businesses should be proud of our country’s history, not abandoning it. “Nike has made its decision, and now we’re making ours. I’ve ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars under their discretion that the State was providing for the company to locate here. Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history.
Governor Ducey has uncucked. Expect NRO “Conservatives” to attack him to the hilt. This is the proper way to kill the career of parasite #SJWs like Colin Kaepernick. Therefore, we will hear chapter, psalm and verse about Gov. Ducey being too divisive. If divisiveness gets rid of Colin Kaepernick, by all means divide. Protip: not by zero.
To all the happy folks in the neighborhood who celebrate July 4th with large, loud fireworks. Please give a thought to your neighbors who have horses. Horses are TERRIFIED of fireworks. They are too large to be brought into the house where noise is reduced. As an owner I can either put them in the barn where they fling themselves against the doors in an attempt to get away from the noise or leave them in the pasture where they run themselves stupid. Either way they risk life ending injuries. A broken leg is a death sentence for a horse! Thank you for your consideration!
Nobody means evil here. It’s just that nature has a very hard time coexisting with humanity. Traditionalism also clashes with modernity. We eventually lose beautiful things like the pasture full of horses I run past every so often when I jog my longer route. Maybe the fun and the convenience and the noise are a poor tradeoff in comparison to the God-Breathed beauty of an American Quarter Horse. We may not really realize what we’ve lost until it is gone.
So why isn’t anyone more upset when nature is endangered? For one thing, even those who claim to speak on Earth’s behalf are perverted modernists. They are pushing hidden agendas that will do nothing to stop the rise of the oceans or the retreat of anyone’s glacier. It’s all about power, Man. It’s all about the hype and hyperbole. Hyperbole backfires when exposed.
U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked
PETER JAMES SPIELMANN June 30, 1989
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP. He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
No wonder people just shoot off fireworks next to some poor lady’s horse farm. Any time I write that ecocide is a thing, they can just link to something like this and tell me I’m a Doomster Nutjob. Hard to save a world against those odds….
The US team have dropped their captain Megan Rapinoe in a shock move ahead of tonight’s World Cup semi-final clash against England – as Prince William and Holly Willoughby led celebrities sending good luck messages to the Lionesses on social media. US head coach Jill Ellis has insisted that the move was not made for any disciplinary reasons, although she did not rule out the possibility of an injury.
Megan Rapinoe has become an athlete in the sense that Colin Kaepernick is an athlete. She may have ninja moves, but nobody can control her behavior well enough to put her on the field. Two days before US Independence Day, she has established a reputation for refusing to respect the national anthem because her preferred candidate didn’t win a recent presidential election. Nobody could be a worse example to young people who idolize great athletes than someone who acts like that. There is a reason that children are taught sportsmanship and respect for opponents. Rapinoe, heretofore, has been capable enough at her game to be run out there by coaches who care more about tonight’s win than the values of sport and dignified, honorable competition. Rapinoe is now learning the hard way why good coaches teach sportsmanship and respect.
Update: Man did that story change fast. The USWNT got reminded of how many people would actually care about their WWC Final without the coveted Lesbo Oprah! Demographic. Read nobody. Rapinoe now just sat out the game with a mild hammy pull. She’ll be back in uniform as an insult to the country that pays for and sponsors her loathsome virtue signalling Sunday for the final.
Following the match, Rapinoe said, “I feel like I’ll be ready for the final,” and she confirmed a “minor strain” to Fox as she explained her absence due to a hamstring injury. The U.S. will take on the winner of Sweden and the Netherlands on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET as the USWNT looks to earn its second-straight title. Ahead of the game, news of Rapinoe’s absence sparked confusion following her successful performance in the Cup so far. A team spokesperson did not want to comment on the decision to keep Rapinoe on the bench and referred questions to head coach Jill Ellis, according to the Washington Post’s Steven Goff. U.S. Soccer did clarify, however, that the decision was not disciplinary.
But when members of Antifa are arrested, the masks come off. And, as recent mugshots of Portland Antifa members show, these people are about as diverse as the Washington Generals. At a time when many on the left are rightfully concerned about far-right white violence, why do so many seemed so nonplussed by far-left white violence, in most cases even refusing to acknowledge that that’s exactly what Antifa is?
Um, duh. People on the left are non-plussed and unconcerned about ANTIFA only when they talk to stupid cucks. When they get back home they are proud of ANTIFA. That’ll shut those rich Conservatives up! More! More! More! There are violent leftists and there are gutless leftists. There are very few leftists who abhor violence against anyone unholy enough to agree with their political scripture.
“The first priority for us is to make sure we restart the economy,” he said, speaking during a break in a day-long campaign trip in the central Greek region of Magnesia. “Greece (will) restore ambitious growth driven by private investments, exports and innovation. All our energy is focused in that direction.” The 51-year-old Harvard graduate and former McKinsey consultant has pledged to create “better” jobs, to lower taxes and to “steamroll” obstacles to business.
Greece seems prepared to elect a president of their own choosing absent the permission of the EU. This will not be tolerated any more than Google intends to tolerate Donald Trump winning a 2nd term. This man sounds nothing like Nigel Farage. He perhaps intends to negotiate with, propitiate and then ride out the EU as it destructs. Maybe this is the only available course of action for a small, broke European Country that actually wants to restablish nationalism and genuine pride.
Come over to the Dark Side, Annakin. We’ll stroke your Dopamine receptors.
The knitting site Ravelry, which dominates the online fiber community, recently banned expressions of support for President Trump, which it equates with “white supremacy.” Around the same time, TV preacher Paula White led the crowd in prayer before Mr. Trump officially kicked off his re-election campaign in Orlando, Fla.: “Right now, let every demonic network who has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling, of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus!
You may not need to believe in God, but you’ll never successfully found a religion without Ahriman, Baelzebubba, Asmodius, or some form of Great Satan. Hatred of the other is what makes diverse globs of useless humanity cohesive and temporarily unified. Nothing makes the Id and Ego happier and more unified than making The Bad Man pay for it. Crowdism is dangerous without a direction to point the mob. A direction that vectors them away from any of your personal valuables.
So roll up that Hunnert Dolla Bill. Form that crystallized hatred into a fine, white line. Snort it like Nose Candy. Just one line won’t hurt. I promise.
Buttigieg backdoors his own police force in order to placate #SJWs. This is a man running to be Commander-In-Chief of the United States Military. Now that Harvard Man, Pete Buttigieg, The Great Gay Moral Authority, has called every South Bend Cop a racist, nobody should want to be a South Bend cop. Nobody except a stupid cuck should be willing to police a city that elects Mayor Buttplug. Those bratty college kids – they had better learn how to be fighting irish.
If Amerika is capable of electing someone like Mayor Buttplug, then you will offend basic decency by volunteering to serve in the armed forces under this jerk. Anyone currently in military uniform should serve the people and immediately complete the paperwork necessary to resign. Effective 5 minutes after this evil creep is inaugurated.
Should sanity win and Brexit succeed, there will be a new statue flanking the illustrious Admiral Nelson in Trafalgar Square. Nigel Effing Farage.
Germany’s Ursula von der Leyen is slated to lead the EU’s executive for five years. A model centrist liberal politician with a dubious record of overseeing Germany’s troubled military, she’s facing rough waters to navigate. Von der Leyen is a political veteran and the only person to have held a ministerial position in all four successive governments of Chancellor Angela Merkel since the German leader first came to power back in 2005.
Sounds like she has all her ducks in a row. What could possibly go wrong as she ascends the Corsus Honorem? Well, let’s review Von der Leyen’s job performance over at the BundesWTF?
Yet, her ministerial record is far from flawless. Over the past six years, during which von der Leyen headed the Defense Ministry, Germany’s armed forces, the Bundeswehr, have become a steady source of news about planes that can’t fly, tanks that break down, and vessels that are unfit for maritime operations. In autumn 2017, Germany was literally left without its entire submarine fleet as all of the ships turned out to be either undergoing maintenance or in dire need of repairs. More than half of the Bundeswehr’s tanks were revealed to be unfit for service during the same year. Dozens of assault rifles and pistols, as well as tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition, have simply been stolen from the Bundeswehr on von der Leyen’s watch. The year 2014 – her second year in office – saw the biggest amount of equipment go missing, resulting in the loss of 21 weapons and more than 20,000 rounds of ammunition.
that, then Vladimir Putin, not Donald Trump; should be impeached. How could this woman be that incompetent and still gain GURRRLLL Power? A time-honored method.
Obligatory display of patriotism to prevent Google from banning the website…
