A Ban on Smartphones for Kids

Tucker proposed banning smartphone use for kids by federal law. I don’t want to like this guy but he’s literally the only person in the public space who talks about things I find extremely important.

If a politician proposed this, I’d be voting for that politician irrespective of any other issue. Any other issue. He could proclaim Putin the emperor of the world for all I’d care.

And it’s not an extraordinary or unusual thing. There is a ban on kids smoking or drinking alcohol. Recently, a ban on vaping for kids started to get enforced. These bans work extremely well. When was the last time you saw a 6-year-old with a cigarette and a beer bottle, even in families where parents smoke and drink?

Tucker says that about a quarter of children under the age of six have smartphones. These are the children whose language skills, emotional coping skills, and sociability skills will be thwarted for life. They will be part of an underclass, socially engineered into this position by people who’d never do that to their own kids.

I recorded this segment and will keep rewatching it. My analyst does research on this, and the findings are absolutely horrific. I’m sure that this will go the way of smoking where everybody will suddenly realize it’s dangerous. But it will take time and do a ton of damage before then. I believe that this is the most important issue of our times.

How I-Gen Are You?

This is something I’m reading for work. I discovered I’m not I-Gen at all, except for the support for gay marriage. What about you?

Betrayal

The Democratic party used to stand for decidedly good things I could wholeheartedly support: abortion rights, gay rights, racial justice, labor rights. These are all great things, and I’m very much for them.

And then abortion rights transformed into a right to kill an inconvenient child who, after being born, doesn’t rise to high enough consumer standards.

Gay rights turned into a fight to mutilate kids when consumers are too bored to parent them and to put 10-year-olds on the stage of drag clubs for adult pervs to ogle.

Racial justice turned into proposals to ban white people from being hired in academia or getting published in academic journals. [I can give links if needed.]

Labor rights turned into a defence of the big business’s sacred right to access a pool of easily exploitable and terrified illegal workers.

Im not attracted by any of these goals. They actually scare me.

But, but, but, we keep hearing. The planet will die next Sunday, and we are the only ones who can stop it.

It all sounds like an attempt to distract us from this massive betrayal of what Democrats are supposed to stand for. Oh, forget about how we are trying to make sure you can’t get hired or published because of your appearance. At least, it’s better than being dead as a result of global warming. Would you rather be unemployed or dead?

And yes, the other side isn’t any better. If you smell two piles of shit long enough, you might start perceiving one of them as stinking slightly less. But that’s not much of a consolation.

More on Drugs

This week 114 kg of fentanyl were caught in an attempt to snuggle them through the US border. This single shipment could kill several million people. There was also a shitload of amphetamines in the same shipment. Mexico is now filled with labs that produce every possible synthetic drug in existence.

Folks, shouldn’t this story have been reported at least at the rate of the inane Covington confrontation? Almost nobody is even mentioning it. There is zero discussion. There is something seriously wrong with spending days on parsing a teenage smirk and paying zero attention to this story.
