Wake Up, America, & See the Matrix!  Take the Red Pill, & Behold the Game of the Conspiracy Media! 

The eventual by-product of the scarcity that comes about under socialism, by the way, is the plundering and pillaging of natural resources to point of what often becomes irreparable environmental damage, for when food and other resources are in too-short supply, people poach animals of every variety and spoil the land and water to gain whatever advantage they need to survive.

“You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. . . .” 

—Morpheus to Neo, in the 1999 science fiction thriller The Matrix

 

The Conversation

I had occasion to be in a medical office, in Orange County, California, and the Matrix was the furthest thing from my mind.  But I soon found myself in an unexpected conversation with the receptionist.  After making small talk about new technologies on the horizon, this receptionist made the startling statement that he thought the government could not be trusted in its role to protect us from any harmful effects of these technologies but would likely end up regulating them only in ways that benefit the political class.

Trending: Joe Biden Wants Christians on Terror List for Opposing LGBTQ Agenda

I was somewhat taken aback by such a startling statement in a place of business.  Indeed, there were many people in the office, yet no one protested what the receptionist had said.  Having experienced living in California myself, the situation struck me as atypical.  It is true that the last ten years I domiciled in the state, there had been, in practice, no free speech, except among friends in a private gathering.  It was at this point that I posed the Matrix question: “Are you able to see the Matrix?”  It is a coded question I ask to people, when I want to find out whether they are able to see through the media hypnosis and the Big Lies of the Left.  (I can always say, “Never mind,” if a person is confused by my query, and move on.)

“I took the red pill a while back,” the receptionist responded, indicating that he was not under the spell of the media; this prompted me to follow up by asking if there was an Agent Smith about (an indoctrinated Leftist inclined to object or make trouble).  “No,” he replied, “you can speak freely.”  At this point an office co-worker approached, eagerly volunteering that he had also taken the red pill.  None of people waiting to see the doctor batted an eyelash.  Was it because I was in Orange County, traditionally a bastion of conservatism?  To be sure, the OC had become less conservative over the last decade, but perhaps the OC’s native conservatism was making a comeback.  Something was afoot in California, and I suppose it made sense that it would begin in the OC, the first county where multiple communities had stood up against the predator-enabling sanctuary state.  It would appear that the people of Orange County were beginning to see the Matrix.

 

What Is the Matrix?

“The Matrix is everywhere,” explains Morpheus to Neo, “It is all around us, even now, in this very room.  You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television.  You can feel it when you go to work . . . when you go to church . . . when you pay your taxes.  It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth—a prison for your mind.”  In acknowledging how shocking the real world can be to people who have been living within the Matrix, Morpheus offers Neo a choice in the form of two pills: “You take the blue pill . . . the story ends; you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.  You take the red pill . . . you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”  Thus begins the eye-opening journey of the novice Neo—who does indeed choose the red pill being proffered—after being initiated into what change-agent Morpheus refers to, tongue-in-cheek, as Wonderland.

The Matrix, a 1999 science fiction movie, posits a dystopian reality where sentient machines—which are all a part of the artificial-intelligence hive known as the Matrix—utilize the body heat of human beings as an energy source.  To this purpose, the human population is kept in a state of perpetual slumber and made to believe that their Matrix-facilitated dreams are an actual representation of reality.

Neo, the hero of The Matrix, is a man with a dual life who is a perfectly legitimate computer-programmer by day and a shady criminal cyber-hacker by night.  Neo is in the process of catching on to the truth that the world he lives in daily is not based upon reality, but is mere appearance.  Upon being rescued by Morpheus and his agents from falling victim to one Agent Smith, an operative who protects the Matrix, Neo is eventually offered the red pill and takes it, thereby discovering a reality-based rebellion that has taken up arms against the false narratives of the Matrix.  But before Neo ingests the red pill, Morpheus issues him a warning: “All I am offering is the truth, nothing more,” says Morpheus.  It is an important admonition, for Morpheus will not be able to make reality easily palatable for those who do choose the red pill.  (Read more about The Matrix here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Matrix or, better yet, actually treat yourself to a viewing of this incredible film narrative: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/the+matrix+movie?_requestid=12599737.)

 

The Red-Pill Cultural Rebellion

American conservatives have, since 1999, adopted the vocabulary associated with The Matrix as an appropriate set of metaphors to describe the almost universal control that the Leftist cultural narrative of Big Lies has exercised over American media, through its ownership of five out of six major media companies (https://www.morriscreative.com/6-corporations-control-90-of-the-media-in-america/), with News Corp, the owner of Fox News, being the notable exception; News Corp is, generally-speaking, a red-pill, reality-based enterprise—in contrast to the more propaganda-based media outlets of the Left—although even viewers of Fox must always remain vigilant and practice the old Reagan maxim of “trust but verify” when it comes to believing any media story.  Recent red-pill additions to the rebellion against the Matrix include, but are not limited to, the following online outlets for fact-based news and cultural commentary: Eagle Rising (https://eaglerising.com/), Breitbart News (http://www.breitbart.com/), The Gateway Pundit (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/), The Federalist (http://thefederalist.com/), and CNS News(https://www.cnsnews.com/).  It has become the goal of the Matrix to shut these media outlets down by means of the so-called “net neutrality” policies that, in reality, are only a mask for government censorship of conservative media on the Internet.  Blue-pill Democrats are already shutting down red-pill, conservative speech on Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other blue-pill sites.

The Matrix, metaphorically speaking, is fighting to maintain an illusory world where all white conservatives are racists and all black conservatives are “Uncle Toms.”  Any other conservative minorities are “race traitors.”  And, of course, all women who have failed to support Hillary Clinton are “traitors to their gender.”  According to the terminology of The Matrix, the politically-progressive narrative is “the world that is pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”  And it is the acolytes of the Left who help the Matrix to reinforce this worldview at every turn—even to the point of self-censorship.  When asked if they would ever consider watching Fox News or reading Eagle Rising or Breitbart, those who religiously and regularly take the blue pill almost uniformly answer, “Oh, no!  I would never watch Fox News!” or “I wouldn’t be caught dead reading Breitbart!

 

Politics Is Downstream from Culture

Andrew Breitbart (the creator of Breitbart News) used to say, “Politics is downstream from culture.”  Breitbart was a red-pill gonzo journalist who believed that people’s political opinions were often heavily influenced by what they thought of as being cool or impressive to their friends.  Memberships in certain worship communities, bowling leagues, or gun clubs were more likely, in Breitbart’s view, to influence people than almost anything else.  Younger people, especially, would tend to get their information from their circles of friends and social networks.  This is why the Left works so hard to enlist pro athletes and celebrity actors in their cause.  For those who refuse to do the bidding of the Matrix, blacklisting awaits, along with the loss of their TV shows (think Tim Allen of Last Man Standing and Roseanne Barr of Roseanne) as well as their future film roles (think James Wood and Antonio Sabato).  This is how the Matrix works.  Anyone who seeks to “red-pill” others, or who supports “red-pill” politicians like President Trump, is shut down to the greatest extent possible by the leftwing Agent Smiths of the Matrix.

 

The Mysterious Circumstances Surrounding the Death of Andrew Breitbart

Andrew Breitbart, the founder of Breitbart News, died mysteriously in 2012 at the young age of 43, after announcing that he would soon be releasing “game-changing” information that could alter the course of the 2012 presidential election.  After the L.A. Coroner rushed to judgment by issuing a “death by natural causes” verdict, before an accurate toxicology report could be obtained, Michael Cormier, the forensic technician responsible for finding the true cause of death, reportedly died himself by means of arsenic poisoning on the precise day he was scheduled to release Breitbart’s official cause of death (https://www.infowars.com/breitbart-coroner-turns-up-dead-before-final-cause-of-death-report-is-released/), leading many to speculate that an Agent Smith must have gotten to both Andrew Breitbart and Michael Cormier.

 

In Hollywood, Most People Are Not Ready to Be Unplugged from the Matrix

In Los Angeles and its environs, where so many families are tied into the Hollywood media culture and so many jobs depend on the money generated by it, blue-pill sleepwalking is naturally and easily reinforced.  Other important blue-pill cultural centers are New York, Washington, DC, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Hawaii—as well as the “satellite states” of Oregon, Washington, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  These are places where it is often difficult to reason with others, since people have largely been taught to decide matters emotionally, with a heavier reliance on blue-pill media messaging.  As Morpheus has said, “Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged, and many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

 

Candace Owens Realizes Progressive Reporters Are “Hired Hit Men”

Candace Owens, who was involved with an anti-bullying project back in 2016, found herself in the position of having the Left attempt to shut her project down.  During an interview with Dave Rubin, Owens, aka “Red Pill Black,” shared her story about how she found herself being threatened by journalists from established media outlets.

Apparently, by offering to help stop bullying online, Owens had made herself into a target of a woman on Twitter whose victimhood Owens wanted to address.  As it turned out, the woman was lying about having been bullied, and she feared discovery by Owens.  Thus, she tried to get Owens to abort her anti-bullying project.  When Owens refused, Owens immediately found herself being bullied, via email, by people claiming to be white supremacists who wanted Owens to stop.  Owens realized this was all connected to the woman at Twitter; the woman had lied about being bullied and was, in fact, a bully herself.  That is when Owens experienced an important red-pill moment: “I realized that liberals were actually the racists,” Owens affirmed; “Trump is on the [TV] screen saying that the media is lying, that CNN is fake. . . .  I began to realize that everything he was saying was true.  So, I no longer bought into this idea that he was a racist, a rapist, a white nationalist—everything—I bought none of it, because I knew that the media are hired hitmen, and they were doing the most ridiculous hit job on Donald Trump, from start to finish, of his campaign. . . .”

 

When President Trump Says “Fake News,” He Is Calling Out the Matrix

Perhaps the biggest red-pill personality alive is President Donald Trump.  Trump breaks the taboo daily of exposing the Matrix, a habit which led to President Obama’s weaponizing of the entire Intelligence Community against Trump, in order to spy on his presidential campaign (http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/05/26/7-ways-spy-chief-obama-spied-trump/); the Clintons’ hiring of intelligence operative Christopher Steele, to frame Trump with a false Russian-dossier narrative (https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/rep-jordan-fbi-used-garbage-dossier-get-warrants-spy-americans-associated); and the infiltration of the White House by anti-Trump staffers and Secret Service personnel, to cause a huge number of security leaks to occur during the early days of Trump’s administration (https://www.teaparty.org/new-deep-state-leaks-secret-service-leaks-full-transcipts-trumps-calls-mexico-australia-256646/).

The more President Trump does and the more he accomplishes for the good of all Americans, the smaller the red pill that is necessary for people to swallow, in order to be able to see the Matrix.  The black community, with the help of people like Larry Elder (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsIiTWpqh6k), Candace Owens (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILQXW2Ob1PU), and Kanye West (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swQWUa5-9TM)—not to mention the likes of Senator Tim Scott and Housing Secretary Ben Carson—is beginning to wake up to the reality of the Matrix.

 

The Blue-Pill Brainwash: “People Are a Cancer of the Planet”

“Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.  You’re a plague, and we are the cure,” says Agent Smith to Morpheus while interrogating him, in an attempt to break him down.  These words could have been spoken by any blue-pill conspiracy-media hack who treats red-pill conservatism as the problem and blue-pill socialism as the cure.  Red-pill people believe that economic regulation of the market is not the answer—that the answer lies in fact-based education (rather than ideological indoctrination), in order to create a marketplace for the kinds of conservation technologies and inventions that will help the environment.  Blue-pill zombies deny this reality, although the free-market approach has worked historically; these devotees of the Matrix do not trust other people, choosing instead to put their faith in government bureaucrats as the guarantors of environmental protection.  However, trust in government is almost always misplaced, because bureaucrats have no real accountability, in terms of being incentivized to maintain or improve the environment the way private individuals are.  Private individuals are almost always better stewards of the planet than government bureaucrats who remain cut off from connection to any land that they actively love or care for in a tangible way.

 

A Truth Hidden by the Matrix: Capitalism Has Improved Environmental Protection over Time

Blue-pill Operatives do not know—or if they do, they fail to cite—historical facts that argue against environmental socialism.  For example, John Rockefeller helped to save the whales by developing fossil fuel as an energy source, thereby replacing the need for whale oil (http://naturespathways.com/herb-blurb/item/4027-how-john-d-rockefeller-oil-magnate-helped-save-the-whales#.WxwD-yBlDIU).  It was the profit motive that incentivized Rockefeller to find a cheaper, more reliable source of energy.  It is also true that collectivist economies generally harm the environment, whereas private ownership protects it.  This is important to understand, since “social-justice” taxation to “save” the environment is one of the biggest scams perpetrated by the Left.  Not only does socialist policy fail, but it actually tends to increase environmental damage.  The Matrix, however, fights against historical facts, since the people running the Matrix enjoy exercising power over people by depriving them of their economic means to be free to make independent financial decisions.  The easiest way to do this is to convince people they must sacrifice—by means of government taxation—to the environment, lest they kill the planet by withholding their money and, in turn, wind up killing themselves.

 

Why Socialism Fails to Protect the Environment: Or, The Tragedy of the Commons

In socialist economies, no one owns property, so there is no incentive to care for the land, to preserve its value.  The forest next to my home is owned by everyone in common, rather than being owned by me or some individual incentivized by private ownership to responsibly maintain the land.  So, if I cannot own the land, and it cannot belong to my neighbor, then, realistically, I should hunt the deer before my neighbor does; I had better extricate the fish from the lake, as well, before my neighbor does; for, if I try to conserve the wildlife, it will make no difference, since it will only be my neighbor who hunts and fishes the animals to extinction, whereas, if I do it, the same result accrues, but with me as the beneficiary.  The destruction of commonly-owned property that is held in trust for everyone by the government is referred to by economists as the Tragedy of the Commons (https://eaglerising.com/8392/capitalism-saves-communism-kills/).  It is a phenomenon that is hidden, in large part, by the operatives of the Matrix.

 

Capitalism Provides the Cheapest Way to Develop Newer & Better Sources of Energy

The development of renewable energy sources has benefited from the use of fossil-fuel technology.  The availability of cheap, plentiful fossil fuel has helped enormously to allow the inexpensive research and development necessary to make renewable energy more profitable.  A good example is ExxonMobil’s continuing efforts to conduct research on advanced biofuels, which, according to the energy company (http://corporate.exxonmobil.com/en/research-and-technology/advanced-biofuels/advanced-biofuels-and-algae-research), is “part of our many investments in new technologies with the transformative potential to increase energy supplies, reduce emissions and improve operational efficiencies.”  Profits affect spending on these kinds of projects; so, in a capitalistic, low-regulation, free-market competitive economy, developments that would be beneficial for the environment can happen that could not occur under a sluggish socialistic economic regime devoid of incentives for helping the environment.

 

The Matrix Promotes Death-Dealing Socialism in General

What the Matrix has removed from media representations and educational curricula is the teaching of real history.  The truth is that, throughout history, socialist oligarchies always become tyrannical, something the Big Lies of the Matrix narrative block people from knowing.  However, when, under socialism, people are not allowed to benefit from their jobs more than anyone else benefits, people generally quit the harder jobs.  This is how socialism ultimately leads to shortages of life-preserving foodstuffs and technologies, while capitalism always finds ways to create abundance.  Socialism is run by people who are greedy for power, who never do without, while their countrymen experience scarcity and often go hungry, even to the point of starvation.  How greedy one can be is limited in capitalism, since, in a competition-driven free market, nobody can force you to buy anything, so greedy vendors demanding prices that are too high cannot survive.  The eventual by-product of the scarcity that comes about under socialism, by the way, is the plundering and pillaging of natural resources to point of what often becomes irreparable environmental damage, for when food and other resources are in too-short supply, people poach animals of every variety and spoil the land and water to gain whatever advantage they need to survive.

Chick-fil-A Caves to Leftists, Will Stop Donating to Christian Charities

One of America’s favorite fast food places has finally caved into the hate-filled demands of leftists and has announced it will no longer donate to Christian charities.

Published

One of America’s favorite fast food places has finally caved into the hate-filled demands of leftists and has announced it will no longer donate to Christian charities.

The nation’s favorite chicken sandwich place has been under fire from religion-hating leftists for decades over its frequent donations to organizations that espouse traditional Christian views against gay marriage and the radical homosexual lifestyle.

But on Monday, the company announced that it will no longer give to organizations that do not toe the radial LGBTQ line.

“We made multi-year commitments to both organizations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” a representative for Chick-fil-A said, adding that its new donation scheme will focus on “education, homelessness and hunger.”

The restaurant reports that it intends to donate up to $9 million to charity include a $25,000 to a local food bank every time it opens a new location.

Critics say the change in practice was clearly made as the company looks to expand overseas, something it has not yet done much despite its success in the U.S.A.

“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are,” Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos told Bisnow. “There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.”

A clue to the imputes for the change might be read into the company’s closing of its only British location which was shuttered in Reading, England, after rabid gay activists boycotted the place and threatened violence.

In the end, it is just another example of dangerous liberals getting their way by threats. But Chick-fil-A will not likely find sudden acceptance by the hate-filled left. Liberals have marked Chick-fil-A not for coopting, but for destruction. Rabid, slobbering, LGBTQ terrorists won’t be happy until the company disappears. This move by the restaurant will not in any way placate them.

Chick-fil-A has just sold out its principles for nothing.

And now, many of its loyal Christian customers will also abandon it:

As always, conservative satire site Babylon Bee had it just right:

Veterans Day, 2019: Remembering America’s Beloved Veterans

Published

on

America is a singularly different nation where it concerns our military veterans, and not just on Veterans Days. We love them. We even have a national holiday to honor them. This is not so in most of the rest of the world. Elsewhere soldiers are not as loved as they are here in these great United States.

Is that because the United States is the Sparta of the world, loving war more than anything else? Hardly. In fact it’s because our soldiers bring peace wherever they go, not perpetual war.

In other countries, soldiers are often the dregs of society, living off the people while at the same time lording over them with machine guns and violence.

In other countries the military is feared by both the people and the government because all too often the army is used to take power and steal away the government for its own aggrandizement. There is no accident that the word “coup” is one rarely spoken in the USA unless when viewing foreign news.

In other countries when people see soldiers they fear them, they loathe them. In other countries they don’t want to sit near soldiers on public transportation, they avoid eye contact. Here we shake their hand and ask if they need anything.

In the USA we respect our soldiers because as a rule they respect We The People as much as they respect the law.

When an American sees a soldier an American feels pride, not fear. When an American learns of a fellow’s service, an American is compelled to thank him for that service.

So, from us to you, our dear military veterans, we thank you. We thank you for putting your lives on hold while serving us, while making sure we are safe and able to go about our business unafraid of danger, and time and again for putting your own safety at risk.

Happy Veterans Day to you all.

Mike Rowe Blasts Student-Loan Crisis: ‘We’re Rewarding Behavior We Should Be Discouraging’

Mike Rowe Blasts Student-Loan Crisis: ‘We’re Rewarding Behavior We Should Be Discouraging’

Mike Rowe blasted our country’s massive student loan debt as “nuts” saying that children are learning poor behavior by borrowing money they most likely won’t payback.

“This is why, in my opinion, we have $1.6 trillion of student loans on the books and 7.3 million open positions, most of which don’t require a four-year degree. We’re just disconnected. We’re rewarding behavior we should be discouraging. We’re lending money we don’t have to kids who are never going to be able to pay it back to train them for jobs that don’t exist anymore. That’s nuts.”

Watch the short clip below:

TDC:

If you want to know how Mike Rowe feels about something, just ask him. He’ll tell you in no uncertain terms.

Rowe, the host of “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” and former host of of the hit TV show “Dirty Jobs,” appeared Thursday on Fox Business to promote his new book “The Way I Heard It.” On the show, Rowe was asked by host Stuart Varney what he thought about the $1.5 trillion federal student loan debt.

“We have unintendedly maligned an entire section of our workforce by promoting one form of education, in my opinion, at the expense of all of the other forms,” he said.

“Forty years ago, colleges needed a PR campaign,” Rowe added. “We needed more people to get into higher education, but when we gave the big push for college back the in ‘70s, we did it at the expense of alternative education. In other words, we told people, ‘If you don’t get your degree, you’re going to wind up turning a wrench.’ ” More

Watch the full video below:

Got to love Mike, he’s this generation’s, Paul Harvey. As usual, he nails it! The left doesn’t care about exploding student loan debt, they only want free college so that they can get even more people into their indoctrination mills.

The government loan programs have made the American taxpayer liable for any student defaults. Neither the banks loaning the money or the universities have any liability for bad loan decisions. This is a travesty.

30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Thirty years ago today the dreaded Berlin Wall fell in Germany. It is a day that should be celebrated in every school.

Published

on

Thirty years ago today the dreaded Berlin Wall fell in Germany. It is a day that should be celebrated in every school, but a day few are remembering as more Americans than ever are falling for the lies of socialism.

The Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989, freeing half of an entire country from a 30-year-long prison sentence.

The loathsome wall was erected between the eastern and western sectors of the German city of Berlin starting in the year1961. On August 13 of that year, East German troops positioned themselves by the Brandenburg Gate and started sealing off the communist-controlled sector of the city.

The wall ran 155 kilometers around West Berlin and prevented all residents from being able to move freely between the east and west sectors.

The wall finally fell on Nov. 9, 1989, marking the beginning of the end of the communist-led regimes from Central Europe to Soviet Russia.

The wall was a prison made by communists and socialists to keep the western world out. It also served as a stark warning to citizens of the communist sector: cross and die. It is estimated that at least 80 East Berliners were gunned down by communist troops for trying to cross the wall to freedom in the west.

While the wall was intact, the world and modernity passed by the citizens of East Germany. East Germans will still living like it was 1961 when the wall finally fell.

Last week, a statue to Ronald Reagan was unveiled in Berlin to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the wall. Regan defied international convention and his own speech writers to deliver a searing speech on June 12, 1987, demanding that the Soviets tear down the Berlin Wall. It took another 2 years, but that wall finally fell.

This is the sort of prisons socialism builds.

And yet, today Democrats in America are increasingly fascinated by socialism and communism and more Democrats than ever would love to vote for a socialist.

It only goes to show how our left-wing educational establishment has failed this country.

William Shatner Gets Into Epic Twitter Feud With Millennials

William Shatner Gets Into Epic Twitter Feud With Millennials

“Star Trek” actor William Shatner got into a Twitter feud with millennials calling him a boomer: ‘That’s a compliment for me.’

He takes ‘entitled’ millennials to task in a heated Twitter exchange, calling one a diva and corrects her grammar after she blamed his generation for the ‘hardships’ she faces.

In case you didn’t know the phrase ‘OK Boomer‘ is used to show youthful annoyance at older people. 

Fox News:

“Star Trek” actor William Shatner got into a heated Twitter exchange with millennial users who incorrectly targeted him with the popular “OK Boomer” jab.

For those unfamiliar, “OK Boomer” is a popular phrase used to dismiss the opinions of baby boomers that younger people deem irrelevant or uninformed. Shatner was commenting on a back-and-forth between “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron and viewers upset about Sean Spicer’s continued presence on the show when one of his followers directed the “OK Boomer” jab at the 88-year-old actor.

Shatner was born in 1931 and is, by definition, not a boomer. More

Boomer is the new dirty word to describe opposition to the socialist left. I love that he stands up to SJW’s, snowflakes and PC nonsense. Far better than the virtue-signaling celebrities that are now so prevalent.

Thank you, captain! I’d take Boomer over whiny, entitled millennial any day. I agree it’s a compliment even though I’m a gen X’er.

Gov’t to Raise Vaping Age Limit to 21, Ignoring Black Market’s Role in Deaths

The feds are really missing the mark here.

Published

on

There are few instances in which our government is more inept than when it is attempting to tackle the issue of illegal drugs.  Sure, there are plenty of bonehead moves outside of drug policy, but there is little doubt that the war on drugs takes the cake.

First, let’s look at what’s legal and what’s not.

Opioids:  Perfectly legal to possess and use, so long as a doctor said so.  But these pain pills have become the plight of the suburbs, as their active ingredient is the same as we find in heroin.  Instead of track marks, your average suburban junkie could instead be having a glass of chardonnay at the local Applebee’s while getting loaded from the pills in their purse.

Adderall, which we give our nation’s youth:  Perfectly legal with a doctor’s note.  Again, this is nothing more than the corporately-manufactured version of methamphetamine.  Heck, even generic Adderall simply comes in a bottle marked “amphetamine”.  They aren’t even trying to hide it.

But marijuana, a plant that makes some people feel a little funny, is highly illegal at the national level.  Furthermore, the black market created by this prohibition has killed and incarcerated untold numbers of Americans – including a rash of vaping-related deaths earlier this year.

Those deaths, which were falsely attributed to e-cigarettes, came after counterfeit marijuana vaping liquids were cut with vitamin e acetate – a compound that will turn phase into a gas at vaping temperatures, but then reconstitutes itself as a gel-like liquid as it cools.  That meant that users were coating their lungs with the normally harmless substance, essentially drowning themselves from the inside, unknowingly.

Now, in a stunning act of ignorance, the federal government has decided to move against the e-cigarette companies as opposed to tackling the black market of counterfeit marijuana vape cartridges.

The United States plans to raise the age limit for vaping to 21, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday, adding that his administration would issue its final report on such products next week.

Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House, did not give further details about the administration’s regulatory plans or give a specific date for any announcements.

U.S. health officials have been sounding the alarm amid a nationwide outbreak of serous lung illnesses linked to vaping, and have raised concerns about the use of electronic smoking devices, particularly among youth.

To make matters ever more remarkably asinine, 21 years is already the legal age that you must be to purchase and use marijuana products in states where it is legal.  Were the federal government to nationally legalize marijuana it would not only completely decimate the black market that caused these deaths, but it would also decrease the number of underaged users at the same time, were they to adopt similar guidelines.

Joy Behar Says Trump Rallies Are Full Of Paid Actors

Joy Behar: Trump thinks his voters are stupid; rallies are fake, full of paid actors.

Joy Behar claimed the ad was fake just like the people who go to his rallies: “To me that says that the Republican party thinks that their constituents are stupid because it says nothing. Those are all paid actors just like the ones who go to his rally.”

News Busters:

Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous on The View, the hosts spend time whining the President’s son’s Halloween costume is insensitive to animals.
