Some thoughts on various items this week
Illegal immigration: I was in Texas a short time ago and talked with a person very involved in the situation on the Texas border. The gist of the discussion was that our borders are wide open and our politicians are actively preventing those tasked with border security. The frustration was palatable. While the individual was careful not to point at any specific political party or individual it was obvious he wasn’t talking about Bushes immigration policy.
I’ve been touching on this issue here and there the past six months or so. For what appear to be political reasons we have encouraged the illegal migration of people across our borders. This has created a crises in the border regions and now we are moving them to a neighborhood near you.
So, the question I have is do we want our country to turn into a third world nation? If so, then by all means lets continue this open border policy. If not you might want stand up and say enough. I’ve been in many third world nations and they suck. I mean suck badly.
Facebook experimentation: Ok, if you didn’t already get the hint that Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook is not your friend take a look at the Facebook experiments. Without anyone’s consent Facebook decided to conduct some Psychological experiment with the users. The researchers wanted to find out if emotions were contagious. So they manipulated the feeds you saw. Freaking nice huh? So, when the mentally disturbed kid goes off the deep and because he was forced fed a particular idea just blame guns not the liberal ass-clowns at Facebook. I don’t have a Facebook account. I did at one time however I noticed years ago that there were a whole lot of things going on behind the scenes. We all know many companies monitor what we look at and I don’t mind that necessarily, but Facebook takes it to a new level. Granted it’s competing with Google. However, this is not about using your information this is about manipulating you.
Eli the Computer Guy has a good video on this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PIXop0SE1s.
Hobby Lobby ruling: Holy cow, the left went bat-shit crazy over this ruling. This is about Hobby Lobby not being forced to pay for all 20 Birth Control methods. Because paying for 16 Isn’t enough for some. Luckily for us that great conservative Bill Clinton signed The Religious Freedom and Restoration Act. A couple of articles from “The Week”.
