In advance of Obama’s visit to Burma, the NYT does the Rohingya as victims story

Burma, one of the only countries in the world with the guts to stand up to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Monks protest in 2013: http://www.demotix.com/news/3243077/buddhist-monks-protest-against-oic/all-media

I would have to write a book to tell you why this story is so infuriating to me.  I don’t have time for books!  But, I have followed the Burma (Myanmar) Rohingya Muslim issue for years (174 previous posts in our Rohingya category) and it makes me want to explode when I see the one-sided portrayal of the issue by the mainstream (leftwing, pro-Islamist media).

By the way, my initial interest in the Rohingya story was that our refugee resettlement contractors are pushing for the US to take more Rohingya refugees (USCCB here), and in fact have already resettled some in America.  Esar Met,convicted of killing a Burmese Christian girl earlier this year in Utah, was almost certainly a…

The Intolerance Of Facts

Nothing like trying to discuss fact with folks that are intolerant of said facts. I probably can earn a PhD on this subject, but my ADHD will slow me down. Anyway. I read an article that states if the Latino vote was removed from California’s gubernatorial race, Jerry Brown would have lost yesterday. OOPS, I keep forgetting white guys are not allowed to say such things. Love how the racist blast is tossed around instantly. Thing is, I did not realize “Latino” is a race! I previously stated that Obama would not have been elected if whites did not vote for him. Apparently this fact is not racist.

When I speak about my opposition to all illegal immigrants, I find many nice rational people, going postal because I must hate Latin folks. What the heck? The facts prove the vast majority of America’s illegal immigrants are from south of the border. Mexico and LATIN America. So apparently stating fact is now bigotry. Again, remember Latin is not a race. 25% plus of America’s incarcerated folks are illegal immigrants. Darn these facts. I also like to ask people why the NBA does not have a program to bring more non black players into their league? I believe 80% of the players are black. Imagine if the numbers were reversed? But just stating this fact does not make the NBA a racist organization.

So what the heck is my point? I think I am trying to say many folks are conditioned to shut up when stating certain facts, or simply discussing topics that are believed to be race related. Most of this has come from the nefarious folks who run our government. How better to control a population than to muzzle the voices of reason and stymie original thought?

Quick Thought: Warning Labels

Warning labels are hilarious. I love the warnings from plastic bags: Do not place your head inside, may cause a person to suffocate!. Really? Who was the first stooge to think this was a good idea? I am sure his family sued for a fortune. I bought a pocket knife awhile ago, and the label warned: Sharp object. I hope so!

I do not believe in Darwinism but man, stupid people do have a way of weeding themselves out of the population.

40 Cat Quotes That Are Brutally True

Today I did spend some time to search for cat quotes. I found hundreds of them but wrote down my favorite ones. What I like about quotes is that they are often so true. I wanted to create a list of the best cat quotes as I never done something similar on my blog. This is not only a list of funny cat quotes, they are additionally also brutally true quotes and some of them really made me laugh. Hope you will enjoy the list, hope it will make you smile too…

2. As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat. Ellen Perry Berkeley

3. Any household with at least one feline member has no need for an alarm clock. Louise A. Belcher

4. Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose. Garrison…

If the government generates billions of dollars in tax revenues from tobacco companies, why does the government spend millions to tell folks to stop smoking?

Quick Thought: Please Take My Temperature!

Being a tiny Hillbilly in the late 60′s and a mid size Billy in the 70′s, I would dread going to the Doc’s office when I was sick. That is due to one cold hard, glass fact…temperature checks via the poop chute! Now days, the friggin’ nurse runs a wand over your forehead. What a major difference! Nothing like a little child abuse to get a temp reading in the day. My doc says that in my case, there ain;t much difference between what is sitting on my neck, and what I am currently sitting on!
