Read this and ask yourself again if you really want Trump impeached and what you hope to achieve with that. This is a long article but it’s very good. 

The ridiculous hype of nootropics and ‘brain-hacking.’

I agree with this author on the idiocy of the Russian investigation.

It’s incredible that such grievously uneducated, dumb people who think children’s imaginative play is evidence of PTSD should be teachers.

Phasing out Sunday shopping in Poland is not a victory over consumerism but a gift to online retailers. Let’s stop believing that the weak nation-state can score any victories over liquid capital. It can’t. It simply can’t.

  1. I also agree that the “Russia connection” investigation is a farce.

    As to VP Pence, I have been an agnostic for more than fifty of my thus far seventy-six years. I do not know, and have no belief, as to whether there is one God, many or none.

    However, I feel strongly that America is losing her Judeo-Christian heritage and values, as much of Europe is doing.

    In Sweeden, for example, freedom of speech has been a casualty and people are afraid to see, or to say, much about depredations by adherents to the “religion of peace.”

    A rape case so brutal that even Swedish main stream media is reporting about it shows signs of total collapse of moral and culture in Swedish society.

    “Eeew, you have sperm on your face and on your clothes, don’t involve us,” they said to the woman. She had just endured a gang rape and abuse by up to twenty perpetrators in a stairwell in Fittja, but nobody in the southern Stockholm suburb wanted to help the victim, Metro reports.

    More details are now being published about the high profile case in Fittja, which took place in a stairwell in August 2016. The woman was gang-raped and also beaten up by up to twenty perpetrators. The woman was kicked, beaten, threatened with a knife and her head was knocked against the floor until she went unconscious.

    A neighbor who witnessed the brutal attack chose to ignore it. He later stated to the police that he has “learned not to see or hear too much.” The man has lived for 15 years in Fittja, a Muslim-dominated area.

    Seeking help after the rape, the woman rang the doorbell of one apartment to ask for assistance to call the police. But the man who opened the door ignored her appeal and turned the bloody victim soaked in the rapists’ bodily fluids away.

    The woman then managed to get to the Fittja city center to seek help but there she was told she was “disgusting.” Nobody wanted to help her. “A guy told her she was disgusting and she had sperm in her hair,” reads the police report. She also tried to get help from a guard at the train station, but also he didn’t care about the woman’s situation.

    Instead, the woman was forced to take the subway to central Stockholm in order to seek help. Several men are now charged with the crime. According to the prosecution, they also filmed the rape and laughed during their sexual abuse.

    All of the rapists are reported to have “migrant background,” the Swedish media’s expression for Muslim migrants.

    So much for freedom of speech and the rights of women — both important Judeo- Christian values.

      Your president is a rapist who is endorsing a pedophile for Senate. Fuck off with your “important Judeo-Christian values.”

      Just came back from India. Feels good to start off here by dunking on danmillerpanamahat yet again.

      Also important Judeo-Christian values: starving children and taking their healthcare to pay for tax cuts for the CEO class.

    • Having grown up in a conservative church, I strongly feel that mainstream Christianity in America has lost touch with important Christian values, but Pence is in no way the solution to that problem.

    A fascinating look into the logical end result of capital. None of this would have been a possibility, of course, if people didn’t leave a corporation in charge of raising their children.

    • Great article, thank you.

      There is a new class divide that is being formed. There are people who are actively present on FB, Twitter, YouTube, etc, and who are feeding themselves and increasingly their children to this hungry monster of profit generation. And there are people who stay away as much as possible. The higher your income category, the likelier you are to be in the latter group.

      I’m hoping people will start getting fed up and will begin to turn away from these horrible exploitation machines.

        Steve Jobs didn’t let his kids have ipads. The people who understand this technology best know that it’s not good for the developing brain and that two year olds shouldn’t watch hours of youtube a day.
