Build that wall!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Image result for U.S. CANADA BORDERFolks I have been saying for months now (as a matter of fact, about a year and a half if anyone is keeping track) that we should build a wall between Canada and the United States.

The latest blow to our borders came just this afternoon when six teenage members of the Burundi robotics team went missing after participating this week in an international competition in Washington, D.C., local police said Thursday. (The team went on to win a silver medal for courageous achievement and then they then made an immediate run for the border!(


On Thursday, a D.C. spokeswoman said two of the team members—16-year-old Don Ingabire and 17-year-old Audrey Mwamikazi—were spotted crossing over into Canada.

The sighting appeared to confirm authorities’ suspicion that the teens were intentionally seeking asylum from their home country. “We don’t have any indication of foul play,” said spokeswoman Margarita Mikhaylova.

The competition’s organizers added that the security of students is “of paramount importance,” and that participants are given safe transportation to and from the Trinity dorms. They, too, believe the teenagers’ disappearance may have been “self-initiated.”

While Canada’s Border Services Agency neither confirmed nor denied the reports, a spokeswoman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services declined to comment entirely. (Should any of the missing Burundi teenagers try to seek asylum in the U.S., it could take years for them to receive a court hearing, and several more thereafter to receive a formal interview. In the meantime, the teenagers could be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.)

The Canadian government, by contrast, allows refugees inside Canada to have their claims heard within 60 days of seeking asylum. 

On Thursday, the chairman of the United Burundian-American Community Association told the AP that Burundi citizens generally feel they have a better chance of achieving asylum in Canada, given the current immigration policies in the U.S. and that is why we need to build a wall ......, AND WE WILL GET THE U.S. TO PAY FOR IT!

Never, ever go full retard!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

"Moderation, my son, moderation!" This was told to me by a wise old man (my father) back in my youth, and it has stayed with me ever since.

In other words you never go whole-hog on something (political correctness, ecology, social media, exercise, work, play, ideas, opinions etc. etc.) because that clouds your sense of balance and affects your equilibrium.

Never, ever become a fanatic about anything folks ....., especially religion or politics. 

DON'T GO FULL RETARD KIDS!

Examples of this: Objecting to the word "retard" because it is politically incorrect, or not having a microwave because you heard from the Vegetarians and Naturalists that it's bad for you!!!
Let’s make a distinction between two very different kinds of radiation:
1. ionizing radiation, and
2. non-ionizing radiation.
Ionizing radiation, which can remove tightly-bound electrons from atoms, causing them to become charged, is less risky in very tiny amounts (such as x-rays) but can cause problems when exposure is high (think burns and even DNA damage).
However, microwaves emit non-ionizing radiation; a type of radiation that has enough energy to move atoms around within a molecule but not enough to remove electrons.
What does this mean?
Because the radiation from microwaves is non-ionizing, it can only cause molecules in the food to move. This is good! In other words, microwave radiation cannot alter the chemical structure of food components.
More precisely, when heating food in a microwave, the radiation that the microwave produces is actually absorbed by the water molecules in the food. This energy causes the water molecules to vibrate, generating heat through this (harmless) friction, which cooks the food.
 What have we learned?

Essentially, microwaves don’t make foods radioactive. They just heat them!

It has never been proven that microwaves cause any harm to those who use them and therefore you shouldn’t worry every time you want to heat up that pot of soup or those leftover baked beans, as long as you follow the instructions of use that came with your microwave.

So moderation is the word folks ......, and never go full retard!

Shut up and gimme all your stuff!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

I never liked Jeff Sessions, he always reminds me of a white, redneck, shit-kicker southerner who is in favour of the death penalty and segregation and against affirmative action or civil rights!

One of the main reasons he has to go is this:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back a series of Obama-era curbs on civil-asset forfeiture on Wednesday, strengthening the federal government’s power to seize cash and property from Americans without first bringing criminal charges against them.
Image result for redneck copThat's right kids, down in the good ol' U.S. of A. the cops can seize your stuff and then sell it to put money in their pockets WITHOUT EVER LAYING A SINGLE CHARGE AGAINST YOU!!!!! (That's your house, or car, or anything else you own of value ....., just ask some tourists who traveled in the southern States and ran into one of these guys. -->

In a statement announcing the Justice Department’s new policy directive, Sessions described civil forfeiture as a “key tool that helps law enforcement defund organized crime, take back ill-gotten gains, and prevent new crimes from being committed.” He also cast it as part of his larger push to imprint the president’s hardline stance on criminal-justice matters onto the federal government’s tactics against crime.

Civil forfeiture has existed in some form since the colonial era, although most of the current laws date to the War on Drugs’ heyday in the 1980s. Law-enforcement officials like Sessions defend modern civil forfeiture as a way to limit the resources of drug cartels and organized-crime groups. It’s also a lucrative tactic for law-enforcement agencies in an era of tight budgets: A Justice Department inspector general’s report in April found that federal forfeiture programs had taken in almost $28 billion over the past decade, and The Washington Post reported that civil-forfeiture seizures nationwide in 2015 surpassed the collective losses from all burglaries that same year.

Niggers!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

I briefly talked about a woman in my previous post who didn't like what I said and called me a nigger!

A nigger?

Yup!

Now listen folks, because of all the bullshit from the politically correct crowd it has become poison to say that word ....., WE CAN'T EVEN SPELL IT IN FULL! (We have to say "ni**er!")

This suppression of words and idea's is having the opposite effect of what these goody-two-shoes are trying to achieve ladies and gentlemen! By making them taboo it only adds to the vileness that is conveyed by their use ...., but this seems to be lost on the P.C. crowd.

Lenny Bruce addressed this subject over fifty years ago and it hasn't lost any of its relevance since:



Or this:

Say What?

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

I saw a question of the "Quora" web-site that asked the question "What is the most difficult philosophical question there is." (Or something like that.)

Due to my study of religion and spirituality I have come to the conclusion that we are all part of the "Cosmic Consciousness"or "Mother Nature" or "God" etc. so my answer was that proving the existence of God and defining consciousness is the most difficult question there is!

Hence my answer was: That you are God!

Then I got THIS in the mail:


Amelie Robin commented on your answer "That you are God!": "And you're a n’’’’r!"
Image result for god fearing christian woman clipartO.K. first of all I'm not black, but that doesn't enter into it. I am just confused as to why this woman would call me a nigger in the first place. (Unless it was just one of the worst insults this God fearing Christian woman could come up with on short notice about someone who she figured committed blasphemy against the Lord. (It shows the ugliness that resides in some God fearing people!) 
When it comes right down to it, I just don't understand the connection between the question and her answer!!! (Matter of fact, the only conclusion I can draw with any degree of certainty is that the woman is a Trump supporter ......, because there is something wrong with the wiring in her head!)
The way I see it anyway!

Why not to fly into the United States!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

In the United States the T.S.A. has just announced new enhanced screening methods for airline passengers bound for the States so everyone is urged to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight so they can be strip searched and x-rayed before they board the plane! (Apparently there is no reason for this except that security personnel like to see women in their underwear ......, and from this picture who can blame them!)

Train wreck in Strathroy!

Word is out that CN had a big train derailment in Strathroy this morning and all service between Sarnia and Toronto has been cancelled until further notice!

Trump and Putin had another, undisclosed meeting in men's room!

Dear Readers: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Image result for trump and putin in washroom
US President Donald Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had another, previously undisclosed conversation in the men's washroom at this month's G20, the White House has confirmed. (There was some speculation that since it was a nefarious meeting in the men's room something was going on that didn't involve politics!)

President Trump has condemned media revelations of the encounter as "sick." (Given the poor state of relations between Washington and Moscow and the controversy surrounding Russia's efforts to interfere with the US presidential campaign, each and every encounter between Mr Putin and Mr Trump is bound to be carefully scrutinized, but these latest allegations are of a more personal nature.)

 Mr Trump also appeared unaware of another dimension - the message that his tete-a-tete would send to other leaders in the room, who must have watched the US president and Mr. Putin slipping out to the men's room with some unease!!!!!

Fetch boy, fetch!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

I have said on numerous occasions that dogs, as well as all other living things, are just like us except not quite as smart to a greater or lesser degree.

Common wisdom in earlier times said that animals did not have any emotions, but we now know that this is simply not true!

However, the extent that dogs and other animals have feelings and emotions continues to surprise and amaze us, especially when you see a video like this:

Beware the Terminator! OR: Danger Will Robinson, danger!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Elon Musk, who hopes that one day everyone will ride in a self-driving, electric-powered Tesla, told a group of governors on Saturday that they needed to get on the ball and start regulating artificial intelligence, which he called a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.”

When pressed for better guidance, Musk said the government must get a better understanding of the latest achievements in artificial intelligence before it’s too late:
 “Once there is awareness, people will be extremely afraid, as they should be,” Musk said. “AI is a fundamental risk to the future of human civilization in a way that car accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs or bad food were not. They were harmful to a set of individuals in society, but they were not harmful to individuals as a whole.”
 And then Musk outlined the ways AI could bring down our civilization, which may sound vaguely familiar.
He believes AI “could start a war by doing fake news and spoofing email accounts and fake press releases, and just by manipulating information. Or, indeed – as some companies already claim they can do – by getting people to say anything that the machine wants.”
 Musk said he’s usually against proactive regulation, which can impede innovation. But he’s making an exception in the case of an AI-fueled Armageddon.
 “By the time we are reactive in regulation, it’s too late,” he said, confessing “this is really like the scariest problem to me.”

He’s been warning people about the problem for years, and he’s even come up with a solution: Join forces with the computers.

He announced earlier this year that he’s leading a company called Neuralink, which would devise ways to connect the human brain to computers, CNN reported.

In the decades to come, an Internet-connected brain plug-in would allow people to communicate without opening their mouths and learn something as fast as it takes to download a book.

Other prominent figures in the world of science and technology have also warned against the dangers of artificial intelligence, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates and theoretical physicists Stephen Hawking. But Musk concedes that people have been hesitant to accept their viewpoint.
 “I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see like robots going down the streets killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal,” he said. “I think we should be really concerned about AI.”

Still, even to the biggest skeptic, one sentence offered some food for thought: “I have exposure to the very most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it.”

Maybe Musk knows something the rest of us don’t? He is, after all, a multibillionaire, capable of using obscene sums of money to develop AI. Maybe in some Musk-funded lab, or on some secret SpaceX satellite, there’s already a powerful AI on the verge of getting out.

Maybe it’s already loose.

Better safe than sorry.

The Devil made me do it?

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

For all you people who believe in Christianity, Islam or Judaism here is a chilling thought for you:

I am starting to think that devout believers also accept the possibility of a devil and this would lead us all to a very startling conclusion!!!!

Jesus preached that the Kingdom of God is within you and was an intensely personal experience, while the Devil created organized religion fueled by a human agenda ....., which gave us all the grief we see in the world today! (An Exploration of Religion and the Meaning of Life!  "https://www.createspace.com/7280145 )

Just a thought, but something that bears further examination ......., at least if you believe in the literal truth of the Bible, Torah or Koran.

The way I see it anyway!

Further Funnies!

Dear Friends:

I read a web-site called Quora because it is a place that lets readers ask questions and then gives other readers the opportunity to answer them.

Most of the time there are questions that are interesting, or at least different ....., and sometimes they have questions and answers that are profound and/or illuminating.

BUT:

With the good comes the bad and we have here a collection of questions from the pages of Quora that are either stupid, nonsensical, ignorant or outright strange.

*What are the round things we see if circles do not exist? 
*If mind uploading tech is true, then consciousness is not a neural interaction and the result of a brain process. Is quantum consciousnesses right?
 And finally: 

(Some of these questions have been asked by two people, because no one person could be that stupid!)

Sunday Morning Funnies: Evolution vs Creationism!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Since this is Sunday morning let us have a little fun with the evolution/creation debate:











 How do these ~900 scientists not believe in evolution?

This is an outright fraud.

First the question asked was deliberately misleading. Those surveyed were basically asked if they believe Darwin’s theories on evolution were the complete explanation for the diversity of life. 
Naturally, anyone who knows anything about biology would answer no—because Darwin’s contributions now form a tiny, if foundational, role in our overall modern understanding. But the Discovery Institute (DI) presents this negative answer as if it were a rejection of “Darwinism” meaning the idea of natural selection. 
If qualified biologists were asked “Do you believe that natural selection in all its forms explains the bulk of observed biological diversity” they would all, to a man, answer “yes.”
In asking one question and pretending they’ve asked something else, the DI is doing exactly what it was created to do—lie. This is a deliberate, willful, and calculated lie, and there is no possibility that those behind it are merely blinded by religious bias. 
They must necessarily understand that evolution is real, that natural selection is the driving force behind biological diversity, and that people can only be made to doubt it by trickery. 
One cannot prove a truth through lies, so their only motive can be to continue to bilk support money out of the weak minded and gullible. They are preying on the religious biases of others in order to defraud them out of patronage, and are willing to undermine the intelligence of whole generations in order to do it.
There is a special place in hell, for such charlatans as these.


The way I see it anyway!

Saturday Morning Confusion about the U. S. and Russia.

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

For weeks on end I have heard nothing in the news except how Russia tried to interfere in the U.S. election of 2016. It has been an endless source of conjecture, condemnation and even hyperbole that has saturated the media for months, and even years on end.

Let me give you a few quick facts, ladies and gentlemen: First of all ya can't believe a full 20% of what you read and hear because it's all bullshit and/or grossly exaggerated by social media.

Second, the United states is the pan calling the kettle black because records show that since the second world war the U.S. has overtly and covertly interfered in 81 elections around the world, AND EVEN INVADED SOME OF THEM!!!!!

Finally there are some 'facts of life' that will not change no matter how much public braying and clamoring there is: *Russia will not get  out of Crimea, nor should they, (although they should stay out of the Ukraine) *China will not give up on annexing Taiwan, *North Korea will not change its ways unless the present government is thrown out by any means, the *United States is in for a long and slow decline in world influence and power, the *World map is being re-drawn in favour of two power blocks, one East, and one West, *Israel will annex all of the West Bank and Gaza no matter who objects, (the Palestinians, along with the Syrians will have to be re-distributed around other countries in the Middle-East) *Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism will not stop as long as Saudi Arabia keeps exporting Wahabism around the world, *Africa and the Middle -East will continue to be a basket case, The *E.U. led by Germany will become the dominate power in the world, followed closely by *China, (that East-West thing we talked about) and finally, my neighbour George will continue to be an asshole!

The way I see it anyway!
