Three basics people all around the world have in their kitchens.
Three staples always in stock in groceries and supermarkets for any home cook looking to rustle up a family meal, pancakes or a quick, nutritious drink.
But in Venezuela, you can get these products only if you’re lucky or have the connections and the cash. A lot of cash.
What a gem that you’ll never read about in the corrupt media!
“We are fighting to end hate, to unite as one and love each other. We are fighting to be treated right without discrimination and for everyone to have equal opportunities.”
Bullshit. You have no quantifiable metrics for injustice, so you have no victory conditions (for a very simplified example, when blacks hold X% of all engineering jobs and are only Y% of all prisoners, racism is ended). That would be fine by itself, but you believe in fighting injustice with injustice (gays have historically been denied gay marriage? let’s get random CEOs fired for opinions they held six years ago). You don’t seek converts, you seek to punish and bully – straight white males who disagree with you must be purged and publicly humiliated. Even the jihadists will spare you if you convert; no apology or future correction will satisfy a SJW.
I could forgive that too if you weren’t all hypocrites and liars. Your treatment of women and minority dissenters is appalling; if they don’t want you acting on their behalf, that’s their choice, not “internalized patriarchy” or whatever. You rob them of moral agency. When called out for these behaviors (as you always insist on calling out others), you lie. You strawman your opponents (criticized a woman? misogynist!), you group them with the worst (you’re a gamer? you’re as bad as the anonymous rape threateners!) and when confronted with your own flaws, you restate them less threateningly (motte and bailey argument). You phrase all arguments as kafkatraps (disagreeing with your assertion that we are evil is taken as proof that we’re evil). You publish manipulated and misleading statistics, then lambast anyone who questions them.
You insist on vigilante justice against random acts of the week for your two-minutes hate. Why is it the NFL’s business to punish domestic violence? And, if it is their business, why isn’t Hope Solo receiving the same attention from your side?
Then you claim to be arguing for equality, but you’ve taken the idea of racism (hatred based on skin color is bad) and replaced it with a new concept where only one race can be guilty of racism. You excuse racial prejudice and hatred based on what I’ve already explained are arbitrary, unmeasured states of being. Your solution for the unequal treatment of whites and blacks is to hold whites to a higher standard. Your side lobbied the FBI to redefine rape so more women victims would be counted, but also so that “made to penetrate” does not count, leaving male victims in the cold. Because male privilege, apparently.
Historically ignorant SJWs think whites hold collective guilt for the awful things our ancestors have done. But they don’t care about the unspeakable atrocities by other races. The only difference between whites and others was that whites had the social and technological prowess to do evil efficiently; Africans, Asians, Indians, and everyone else practiced genocide and slavery, they were just less adept at doing it right. Given the means, they would have done the same. But nope, only whites are guilty; Arab oppression of blacks and caucasians never happened, not to us, nope.
I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in America, so this shit is new to me. But I’m descended from puritans, and I know my history; I know how they treated dissent. I also know how commies treated dissent; I grew up next door to a grizzled old Russian who barely avoided the gulag by smuggling himself out of the country. I know what you petty tyrants have turned into every time you gained enough power.
Worst of all, you turn the very principles of freedom against us. We tolerate you because we believe in free speech and civil discourse, not bullying and violence. But that means we have to watch you advocate against that very freedom. We don’t believe in ruining a stranger’s professional life over an opinion, but that means that we can’t punish your actions.
We believe that the rightness of our actions should speak for itself. You believe in bullying, even as you claim to love the oppressed.
Funny how the evil and all-powerful patriarchy has seen fit to act according to SJW whims for all of recent memory, punishing those they hate and protecting those they love. Funny how the evil oppressor males have to speak anonymously, while the SJWs fighting the power can use their real names and get mainstream media coverage for fun and profit. How when a million straight white male nerds get bullied, no one cares, but the minute one fag hangs himself, suddenly bullying matters – and the solution, of course, is more bullying, but by the “right” people.
That’s the arrogant core of it. You do the same evil, in the same pattern, as so many before you, because mob justice, punishing dissent, and repression of others is just fine and dandy so long as the “right” people are doing it to the “wrong” people.
Eat shit and die. All I ever asked was to be left alone.
Google Inc. (GOOG:US), Red Hat Inc. (RHT:US), Oracle Corp. (ORCL:US) and other technology companies are contributing dozens of computer engineers and programmers to help the Obama administration fix the U.S. health-insurance exchange website.
President Obama’s much discussed style of “leading from behind” has led to the United States metaphorically cowering under the bed. So much for President Obama’s claim that “Bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the ropes.”
Al Qaeda is now in more places around the world and stronger than ever before.
A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.
“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads.
She’s black, so just give her the job already! How could it get any worse with Obama at the helm?
Perhaps these words ring a bell for Americans watching their federal government in Washington: Over-spending, lack of jobs, no fiscal restraint, chronically high unemployment, bloated entitlements, inept politicians, corruption, ineffective governing, missing political courage. Figuring someone else will handle the debt down the road.
Municipal debt market analysts are keeping a close eye on the finances of local governments in California out of concern that some could use fiscal emergency declarations as a way to speed Chapter 9 filings to attempt to shed financial obligations.
They used tax money to buy votes, they held their political post, and now they have spent everything and then some. What’s the answer? More taxes! Blame Bush! More government!
There is nothing like a politician who lives in an alternate universe where consequences don’t exist. Barry makes sure that the sequester will be as painful as possible, yet he’s not going to participate in the “painful” cutbacks. He makes expensive trips using money this nation has to borrow:
President Obama is coming to Colorado to highlight the state’s gun control push as he tries to convince Congress to tackle the issue.
Obama is scheduled to come Tuesday. The White House says the president will meet with law enforcement and community leaders to discuss the gun control package signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Protein Wisdom has a nice way of juxtaposing the economic choices. Flying this useless man to read a teleprompter is very expensive. Throughout this nation, bankruptcy is the status of many government entities from the municipal level, through the state, and right up to the federal level. If I ran my home economy like the government runs its affairs, I’d lose my home and everything else. The day of reckoning is coming, it is only a matter time. Money just doesn’t grow on trees. That’s hope and change for nation of idiots.
Fair enough. But if we want to get serious about values, we might try an approach with a much more successful track record of behavior change: paying teenagers not to get pregnant. For every person who makes it to age 21 without becoming pregnant or impregnating someone else, the government should dip into the funds we’d otherwise spend caring for infants and teen moms and instead pay a significant cash bonus directly to the young person.
Sex and money have always been drivers of human behavior, but health officials rarely exploit this synergy to maximum benefit. Cash payments to teens could be doubly effective, reducing the number of teen pregnancies (which are declining nationwide but are still high relative to those of other developed countries) while producing what researchers call a “secondary outcome” by teaching self-regulation, patience and the ability to plan for the future—all valuable life skills.

Another moronic idea from the la la liberal land of ideas. We already subsidize the unmotivated and clueless with tax money which only insures that they stay unmotivated and clueless while they procreate with impunity for bigger government benefits. Now crazed liberals want to reward young people with our tax money for avoiding pregnancy till the magic age of 21! What kind of posters would Bloomberg put up? “Don’t Procreate–Masterbate!” Does getting an abortion keep you in the running for the free cash reward for not becoming a baby’s mama? I don’t know, but I just see too many loop holes. Gays would by definition be excluded from rewards, but how would anyone know? The government would have to start registering citizen’s sexual orientation since the program is targeting heterosexuals. I see too many problems here. Furthermore, the program would reward asexual people for just being themselves!
Government should just stay out of our lives and stick to incarcerating criminals, maintain an army, and secure our borders. Only one of the aforementioned three, the army, government seems to do well. With such a track record, should it really venture into other areas of our lives since waste, failure, and entrenched special interests usually grow out of control? The author of this article need to take her “synergy of maximum benefit” and stick it up her non-reproductive orifice. This is clearly one of the most stupid articles I’ve ever read and I’m proud to share the liberal lunacy.
