The news today is that the country of Iraq finally ended the so-called caliphate of ISIS, aka, Dai’sh. Good for you guys.
I would like to point out that 5000 American troops sprinkled here and there may have helped. I’m not taking anything away from Iraq though. When they ran like rabbits and let ISIS take half their country without a fight, they bought a ticket to the shit show and paid full price getting it back. Iraqi casualties were in the thousands, not counting the murdering that ISIS did in areas they controlled.
Did Iraq learn their lesson? We will have to wait and see. I suspect they learned the wrong lessons.
Wrong lesson #1. If you are going to oppress the Sunni, crush them hard so they can’t fight back.
Wrong lesson #2. Fuck the Kurds. They aren’t like us.
Wrong lesson #3. Iran is our friend and only has the best intentions for us. All those shi’it militias will surely disband now.
Correct lesson #1. America are a bunch of pussies. We can kick them out and they will beg us to accept their free stuff.
Correct lesson #2. Those AC130 gunships are the shit! We need to get a few of those. Anyone know who sells those?
I’m not saying it’s related. Just a coincidence that I went to go do that thing I do and 4 months later, 2 years ahead of the American plan, ISIS is done. Just a coincidence.
No. Not another feature on the billion dollar a year sales in “dietary supplements”, diet pills, or Eastern “medicine”.
I found this in a travel mag of a reputable global airline:
For $60 you can buy this thing that is essentially a printed sticker. It claims to reflect harmful energies. But based on its placement, it seems it would reflect them back into the head, not away from it. But the company has no fear of being sued for an ineffective or potentially harmful product because they already know it doesn’t do anything at all. But that doesn’t inhibit their consciences from selling them at a steep markup. Stupid people will buy literally anything and there are a LOT of stupid people out there.
I especially like how it doesn’t effect signal strength while blocking radiation. Someone doesn’t understand that signal IS radiation.
What this item really does is mark users as people who are too stupid to own a cell phone. Think of it as a bull’s eye for other grifters and frauds.
Very little in my life is going well. For some strange reason, I seem totally unable to get along with people at work. Despite my patience and kindness and willingness to help, I am always seen as someone who is just too hard to work with. And despite EVERY leadership and HR personnel management policy and practice about talking to “troublesome” employees, I always manage to find myself working for the backstabbing pricks who try to get me fired/removed in secret, without ever mentioning to me that there is a problem.
This is insanely frustrating. Just once I would like to do a good job and get a pat on the head. Throw me a freaking bone , already!
Personal life is a shambles. I thought it was going well. But now it looks like the crap was just backing up behind a damn to hit me all at once. I have it in my power to release one person’s suffering, at the expense of just giving up everything I enjoy, for the rest of my life. And I’m considering doing it. And doing it will hurt someone else in the process. A net negative in human happiness gained.
F%$# all this. Where’s the door?
I don’t care about this. As others have pointed out, everyone knew. You know who else knew? All the “victims”. They all knew and said nothing. They didn’t do it because they feared being fired. They willingly traded the only thing they had of value for a chance to be rich and famous. As a songwriter once said, “the devil comes in a pleasing form”, but sometimes he looks like Harvey. They ALL willingly took that deal. So, it’s hard for me to muster much sympathy for them.
The truth is, there is a surplus of pretty young women flooding Hollywood every year. It doesn’t take any talent to act. If you practiced it a few time in a hs drama club, you have the skills. CHILDREN DO IT. They have nothing to trade to set themselves apart from all the others who will do ANYTHING to get their big break into movies. Nothing except sex.
Harvey made them a deal and he paid off his part (as far as we know). Now his “victims” come forward after they have collected the benefits. If he played by the Spirit of anti harassment laws and codes, none of those women would be where they are today. Fat, ugly women would have stared in all your favorite movies since fat ugly women in HR would have hired them.
The Hollywood goose that lays golden eggs is that movies star attractive women. Hiring attractive women is discrimination. Go ahead and follow that trail of breadcrumbs to its logical comclusion.
What should have happened: every single “Victim” should have stormed out of his office without taking his deal. Everyone. Then he couldn’t make movies because no one would work for him. The truth is, everyone knew about this and everyone was fine with it. So tell me again why I am supposed to care.
The parents of Michael Jackson’s “victims” willingly sent their kids to his house for sleepovers. What would you expect if you sent your kids to sleep with a 40 year old man?
Americans mostly don’t remember what these are. Jimmie Buffet stepped on one and had to cruise on back home. Stupid people still collect them because they think a cancer charity or kidney dialysis place will give free treatment in exchange for enough of these mostly worthless things.
Where I am, they still have them.
I suspect it’s because in this country (not the USA), if you cut your foot on a sharp thing on the ground, you can’t sue anyone. People here will just look at you like you are stupid for going barefoot around all those sharp things.
The one thing that is certain is that somewhere, someone, is still collecting them for their kid’s school charity collection of worthless things that magically turn into expensive things. I still see that same old 25 year old hoax as if it’s a brand new thing. As if no one has learned you can look that stuff up on the internet.
The guys at 90 miles are posting this headline:
Trump, Paul Forge Alliance on ‘Biggest Free-Market Reform of Health Care in Generation’
Hint: if it’s congress doing it, it isn’t free market.
The only reform I want is the one I was promised: repeal obamacare. Top to bottom. Root and branch. THAT would be the biggest free market reform ever.
90 miles has this story. It tells that the Las Vegas Shooter went full jihadi and left a tape.
I call total BS.
1. Info wars posted this. They are never right about anything. NOTHING. They said Timothy McVeigh also went full jihadi. Wrong. Wrong wrong.
2. Old rich white guys with Philipina girl friends NEVER go full jihadi. NEVER. It’s the wrong profile. Even if they have stage 4 cancer. They just blow their money on a big weekend and then off themselves with extra morphine after a week-long bender on hookers and cocaine. NEVER.
Look guys, I hate rag heads as much as the next guy. I’d like to see them all deported. But the world doesn’t run to please me. Since I’m SANE I accept that. And also being sane, I don’t try to explain the incomprehensible by pointing to the one thing it can’t possibly be.
Most likely: Hillary supporter who has been fed a steady diet of greavance and junk news since the election and he put into action what all his neighbors and friends were openly saying. Old Rich whites guys ARE men of action. This is totally consistent with that profile.
Next likely: heavy hallucinogenic drug use and he thought he was killing giant spiders from Mars. (The ones from the moon are our allies).
Next most likely: mistaken identity. The real killer sprayed the crowd and drove away while the police converged on the quiet gun collector in the hotel. Windows broke from police gunfire.
And don’t believe the reports of multiple gunners either. Most eye witnesses are wrong. Gunfire around buildings (like big casinos) echos and no one can tell where it’s really coming from.
