I Need to Close Some Tabs


What I do right before bed time is read.  I open up links in their own tabs, and if I think they are interesting I’ll leave them open.  Thing is that I have all these tabs open.  Gotta close some.

Some of these tabs might be worthy of their own blog post, but I get tired.  When I get tired, nothing should be written.

Lying Crooked Hillary.

This orange dusted buffoon has decided to create an actual web site now.  It has a mocking image of Clinton and a form to get spammed.  I have written about this.

Closed.  We need less orange monsters.  And less bullshit.

NRA: sharethesafety.org

This can’t be real.  Can it?

Yes, you can “Buy a gun, give a gun to an American in an at-risk neighborhood.”

Simple.  Choose a premium gun.  Choose a crime ridden city from the map, and “a suitable gun will be given to someone in need.”

Who is in fucking need of a gun?

And why would we arm the inner city of Chicago further?  This is absolutely insane and unnecessary.

Background checks are being blocked by the NRA and they want to open up a chute straight to Detroit with free guns.

I also love the banner pictures showing all the African Americans.  Classy.

Fuck.  The.  NRA.

Closed for good.

Guccifer.

This didn’t get much coverage, but I had a few tabs open as I was reading how the DNC servers were hacked.

Most of the noise was revolving around the corruption and collusion between the DNC and Hillary Clinton.

For Sanders supporters, the leaked documents affirm the bias and favoritism exercised by the Democratic National Committeechaired by Clinton’s 2008 campaign co-chairDebbie Wasserman Schultz.

This isn’t shocking or surprising to me.  The corruption has been there since day one.  But you have to vote for Clinton or, you know, Trump happens.

Internal memos, dated May 2015—long before the first state voted in the Democratic primary—referred to Hillary Clinton as though she was already the Democratic presidential nominee. The documents leaked by Guccifer 2.0 not only illuminate the DNC’s efforts to ensure Clinton’s coronation but also reveal the strategies used to shield her from criticism on ethics, transparency and campaign finance reform

I’m not discussing this any further.  I don’t watch Corporately Modified Information anymore and I’ve read every piece of evidence that Clinton rigged the Democratic election.  Doesn’t change a thing.  People believe the lies they like.

Closed.

Effects of Spanking

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Michigan used data on more than 150,000 children over a 50-year period to come up with a fairly damning conclusion: Spanking is linked to aggression, antisocial behavior, mental health problems, cognitive difficulties, low self-esteem, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. As for the upsides, there were absolutely zero  — the practice revealed no redeeming effects but consistently strong links to 13 bad ones.

Turns out spanking is a bad thing.  Who knew?

I did.

And this practice of publicly shaming a person by spanking a child in front of others has to be even worse.

How many times have I heard a person from a generation or two before me suggest that, “they just won’t let us smack our kids anymore?”

For good reason.

Schools should have never allowed for the principal or teachers to beat children.

It’s poor ethics and I believe it goes back to that great Christian nation we argue for.  We don’t teach anything.  We only teach consequences.

Get caught, you’re going to hell.

Yet Christians argue that atheists have no morals.  I believe we teach morals and not consequences.

Why Clinton’s Claim of Having 3 Million More Votes is a Lie

Caucuses don’t count toward the number.

That is why.

Only primaries.

Closed.

Christy Sheats

What was up with this woman?

If there was ever a time when gun control needed a boost, it was now.  Because Senators don’t seem to care about 50 people being shot dead in a night club.

So this woman, Christy Sheats posted Second Amendment posts on Facebook nonstop.  She argued that she deserved to have a gun.  One meme went something like, I own ten guns and Obama wants to take 8 of them away.  How many guns do I own?  Ten!

And then she killed her two daughters.  With a gun.

Police killed her.

I know Texas tried to secede from the nation, but it didn’t happen.  Texas doesn’t get its own rules.  Killing your daughters is a horrible thing and maybe she shouldn’t have had those guns.  Maybe she shouldn’t have had children.  Unthinkable.

Because doesn’t that make you sad for a couple of people who could still be teen girls right now?

Donald Trump’s Craziest Quotes

I’m done with these.

He’ll say something crazy tomorrow.

It’s what he does.

Just wait for that Geico commercial.

Closed.

Christopher Hitchens Quotes

Other end of the spectrum from The Donald.

Philosophy begins where religion ends, just as by analogy chemistry begins where alchemy runs out, and astronomy takes the place of astrology.

And…

Faith is the surrender of the mind, it’s the surrender of reason, it’s the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other animals. It’s our need to believe and to surrender our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in someone or something, that is the sinister thing to me. … Out of all the virtues, all the supposed virtues, faith must be the most overrated

Not closing this one.  Yet.

And here’s a video.

Eleanor Goldfield entertains me.  Her band, Rooftop Revolutionaries put out an okay album a few years back.  She’s part of Occupy.

Now she spends her time as an activist filming Act Out! which airs on Free Speech TV.

She starts every show with some spoken word.  I actually don’t appreciate it like others might, but I’m not going to judge.

Closed.

And I’m caught up.  Only a couple of tabs left.
