Thanks for telling us Mark Zuckerberg

leave a comment »

Mark Zuckerberg broke the news today.    He told reporters “….that most Facebook users should assume they have had their public info scraped“.     

Frankly, I am not surprised.    I guess that most of us had to know that there was a little too much personal information in Facebook anyway.   

The real story is twofold:   How much of that public info scraped ended up re-electing President Obama in 2012?     How many of those details about our “likes” and “friends” ended up connecting voters with the Obama campaign?

Down goes Gandhi Down goes Gandhi

leave a comment »

As you remember, it started with Confederate officers.    Then they went after Christopher Columbus.   Then they told us that George Washington & Thomas Jefferson were slave owners.   

So it was only a matter time before we got to Mahatma Gandhi.     

Over at Carleton University, the social justice warriors are now after Gandhi:   

The accusations are many: That Gandhi slept naked next to young girls to test his sexual restraint; that he worked to prevent the untouchable caste from being recognized as a distinct political group; that he routinely referred to black Africans using the slur ‘ kaffir’ and demanded Indians in South Africa not be classed alongside natives.   

I’ll just say this:   Will we have any statues left?   

Of course, the solution to this, and so much more, is for the universities to tell the social justice warriors to shut up and do their homework.    Unfortunately, such school leadership is missing very badly these days.    It sure looks like the insane are running the asylum, or something like that.

Another city wants out of “Sanctuary state”

leave a comment »

It’s hard to be a sanctuary state when so many cities are looking for a way out.   The latest from California is that “….the city of Huntington Beach has jumped on the bandwagon.   The city council there has voted by a six to one….“.     

It’s growing and more cities will look to jump ship!

A little history about NAFTA

leave a comment »

A little history about NAFTA………Remember when Senator Obama ran for President bashing NAFTA and calling for a renegotiation?    Remember when most Democrats voted against NAFTA?    Did anyone call them anti-Mexico?
