Gerald jerked his body around and up - such it is when your sort of lying on your side...but yet almost angled with your front pointed sort of "up", I guess.

He didn't dare inhale.  The gum would most certainly get sucked into a lung or something.

He felt pretty stupid. It was 30 years ago when he learned his first lesson.  He was lying, shoulders and back pressed against the floor of the oval living room rug.  A TV commercial had just snapped on and his eyes wandered from the black and white TV to the ceiling.  5 year olds didn't particularly enjoy the pathetic interruptions commercials made in the flow of a cartoon.

He had a nickel in his mouth.  And within 0.0001 seconds....

Gerald swallowed it.

Well, maybe saying he "swallowed it" was too loose a phrase.  It wasn't as if he gulped it down like a pill. No.  It was more like his tongue relaxed and swoosh!  down to the gullet the nickel went.

But this time...this time 30 years later - it was gum.  And 30 years of honing his reflexes (not like he trained everyday for this very day) he untwisted his body sat up and ... saved his life.

Step 3. KILL THEM: Canada now investigates 'climate denial'

So you will now be chased to the ends of the earth if you think thoughts or express beliefs that differ from The State.

Step one:  You will be fined
Step Two:  You will be jailed
Step Three:  You will be killed

If you don't think this will happen, you are living in a fantasy world  This is what we have become. When will we have to seek refuge in Asia to escape the sick pathetic disaster that is steamrolling our way?
As someone who has written extensively on climate change for a decade, my view is that all of this is madness. We are entering into dangerous territory, a fundamental attack on free speech.

If we’re going to use agencies of the federal government to investigate and even prosecute “climate deniers”, for making “false and misleading claims” then let’s damn well do the same for “climate alarmists”, who do the same thing all the time.

I read and hear politicians making “false and misleading claims” about climate change almost daily, particularly with regard to what federal and provincial carbon pricing schemes will actually accomplish, as opposed to what our governments are claiming they will accomplish.

But the way to decide these issues is through public debate, not running to an agency of the federal government to shut up people we disagree with, particularly a government that itself makes false and misleading claims about man-made climate change all the time.
The State is the biggest liar of all.  And we want them to judge our ideas and thoughts?

All this begs the question: What Anti-State thoughts will they go after next?

Target Alarms Hand Baskets in Response to Increased Theft Following Plastic Bag Ban

This isn't a recent article.  But, I've posted articles on some of the consequences of plastic bag bans. Now people are stealing the little hand baskets.

The retailer has recently put black alarms on its plastic carry-alls for small items and customers can no longer take them outside of the store.

On my regular post-gym Target run, I was told the move was made because the hand baskets have been disappearing since California's plastic bag ban went into effect.

The alarms are designed to sound off at the store's doorway, just like those sensors often attached to clothes to stop shoplifting.

Others in the biz of helping you pick up what you need also say entirely too many people who don't want to buy bags, and aren't bringing along their own, are picking up their hand baskets and keeping them.

The lost and wandering SPLC

I started reading this article and was completely aghast.  A city is considered a "refuge of hate"?

Why?  How?

And this is the part that completely blew me away:
The town had previously contested the claim, but the SPLC had stood by its marking the Amanas on the "hate map." Why? The organization claimed "it had confirmation that a group of individuals met sometime in September 2016 at a restaurant in the Amanas."

You read that right.  They ate at a restaurant and BAM! the city is hate-filled.

And what does this really say about the SPLC?

This sort of action says they are an insignificant, lost, irrelevant organization which has completely lost its perspective on what true hate is.

First Grader Sent to Office, Investigated, for ‘Pronoun Mishap’

If this is what the future looks like, it means we're on the road to the end of Free Speech in the USA.

England said the first grader was investigated by the principal to determine whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name. After about an hour it was determined the little girl made an honest mistake and she was not punished or reprimanded.

But she was terribly traumatized by the incident, England said.

“The daughter came home from school upset and crying — saying, ‘Mommy, I got in trouble at school today,’” England told me.

The little girl’s mother, who asked not to be identified, immediately contacted the school to find out what had happened.

“She was told that whenever there is a pronoun mishap with this biological boy who now claims to be a girl — the school must investigate,” England said.

Capitol Resource Institute provided me with a letter the mother wrote — expressing her extreme concern over how the situation was handled.

“I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of (the transgender child), but my children have rights as well,” the parent wrote. “It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.”

Google, other tech companies warned over ‘dangerous’ banning of neo-Nazis, hate groups

Yes, this could easily happen.  But what the article doesn't cover is what would the backlash be if Google, GoDaddy and others are successful in wiping out completely the presence of any 'hate group"?  What do you think the backlash would look like?

I can tell you.  The"hate groups" will decide that if THEY can't get access to the Internet to express their ideas, then NO ONE CAN.

But the Electronic Frontier Foundation is warning of the dangers of censoring speech, no matter how horrendous or offensive.

“All fair-minded people must stand against the hateful violence and aggression that seems to be growing across our country,” the San Francisco-based online advocacy group said in a blog post Thursday. “But we must also recognize that on the Internet, any tactic used now to silence neo-Nazis will soon be used against others, including people whose opinions we agree with.” 
For example, the EFF mentioned that some people want to label Black Lives Matter as a hate group, and that the NAACP has been a target since the Civil Rights era.

Many of the tech CEOs who have taken action in the wake of the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, have explained their moves.

Even as San Francisco-based Cloudflare’s CEO stripped the Daily Stormer of its security services this week, Matthew Prince acknowledged he had made an arbitrary decision and said “no one should have that power.”
Yes.  That's why these companies should fall under the same regulation as phone companies do.  T-Mobile, ATT and others can not stop "hate speech" from being sent over phone lines.  They also can not be sued for allowing, say, ISIS to conspire against the Federal Government.  Or maybe even drug deals that happen over the phone.

This sort of law needs to be used to cover internet providers and companies like Godaddy and google.

Otherwise, the internet will become unusable.

Chicago flower company begs the NEXT QUESTION: "ARE YOU A JEW? ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?"

How much longer before the question is:  "CONDEMN CHRISTIANITY OR GO SOMEWHERE ELSE"???

This is going to spiral out of control.
