Greenland trying to cash in on Trump’s purchasing interest

Friday, August 16, 2019

While declaring that Greenland is not for sale, the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs took reports about President Trump’s interest in buying the world’s largest island as an opportunity to promote tourism.

Hey, we bought Louisiana and Alaska.

Might not be a bad idea.

Maybe we can swap the Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah for it?

I don’t think DJT45 is crazy to float the idea

Stranger things have worked.

Gun Control Is Dead, And So Is The Debate | Connor Drigotas

Thursday, August 15, 2019

We live in a post gun control world, and most of us don’t even know it. The current debate over gun control is simply a waste of time. The modern gun ownership landscape is misunderstood by the lawmakers, and by most of the media discussing it .

I think the author is correct.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” — apocryphal unsourced quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

So to, you can’t take the guns away from anyone who wants to keep them.

You’ll lose a lot of confiscators in the process, especially in the rural areas.  Maybe even in the cities, after all the armed drug gangs are arguably the finest light infantry guerrillas in the world. The police haven’t been able to disarm them yet; so what makes anyone think the can later.

The public schools are, first and foremost, a jobs program – DownsizeDC

Thursday, August 15, 2019

*** begin quote ***

The public schools are, first and foremost, a jobs program. Schools not only employ teachers and janitors. They also employ an army of bureaucrats, a union apparatus, and a ton of vendors. There’s a great deal of money at stake.

It’s notable that the teachers union is the entity which so visibly put up the fight. Have you ever seen their contracts?

Illegal Alien Convicted of Brutally Murdering 20-Year-Old Jared Vargas

Thursday, August 15, 2019

In March 2017, the illegal alien was arrested for drunk driving and was eventually turned over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. Though he was placed into deportation proceedings, an immigration judge allowed him to post bond, and he was released back into the interior of the country. In May 2018, a month before Vargas was murdered, Esquivel-Garcia was again put into ICE custody and local police custody but was able to post bond and be released back into the U.S. with only the promise that he would self-deport.

‘Keep the Hasidic Out’: A Small-Town Housing Showdown – DNyuz

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

School costs are one major concern, residents said at town meetings. While Hasidic Jews typically attend their own religious schools, local districts in New York have to pay for a percentage of their busing costs and special education services.

Why is the Gooferment — at any level – Federal, State, County, City — involved in and paying for (any percentage) of “education”?

Seems simple.

Parents decided to have children, let them educate them.  No taxpayer funds required.

No more cardboard boxes? 3M invents an ingenious new way to ship products

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

To use the Flex & Seal, you just place your item on the sticky gray side of the material, fold over enough material to encapsulate your item, and press the adhesive sides together to seal it up like a calzone. The gray side of the packaging will stick to itself, and not the object you want to ship, and 3M says the seal is robust enough to stay in place during shipping—no tape required. After about 30 seconds, during which you can reposition the item if you didn’t seal it to your liking the first time, the adhesive gets so strong that you have to tear the plastic a bit if you want to pull it apart. That protects your package from tampering, while making sure it’s easy enough to tear open or cut with scissors on the other side.

Dear Democrats – This Is What Happens When You Nationalize Healthcare

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Day after day, hour after hour, Americans are spoon-fed some utopian vision of a future of Medicare-for-all (anyone really who can make it across the border) as the solution to all that ails the health system across all states. However, for anyone who has actually lived under nationalized healthcare, reality is far uglier.

Why don’t we make the politicians and bureaucrats use Medicare or Medicaid instead of their current (platinum?) package paid for by the taxpayer?

I think we all know the answer for that one.  Sigh!
