New Social Media Challenge: Kids Try to Go Missing for 48 Hours

This might be the most twisted game of hide-and-seek the world has ever seen.
Apparently, being a missing child is now a game, or “challenge,” among young people on Facebook.

It’s called the “48 Hour Challenge,” and the point of the game is to go missing for as long as you can within a 48-hour timespan. The participant accrues points by getting mentions on social media that they are missing. [snip]

The challenge encourages kids go missing for two days and the goal is to get attention on social media. The more the child is mentioned as “missing” online, the more “points” they get. Upstate [South Carolina] parents were shocked when they caught wind of what the challenge is all about.

What the kids doing this challenge don’t understand is that after 24 hours a person can be classified as missing, so if a child gets past the 24-hour mark of this challenge, regardless of whether they’re actually “missing,” valuable resources are needlessly used to find them.

One parent brought up the excellent point that this challenge could, and probably will, detract resources from children that are actually missing.

Making the kids pay for this crap will go far in ending the game. Having to front the cost of the First Responders for their time and material costs will put a large dent in their college fund.

The fear on the Left of being out of step with approved thinking is so strong, that even when one of them is right they will grovel and make mea culpas saying they were in error.

A big question looms over all this. Why does Apple need a VP for Diversity and Inclusion? Is this one more example of filling slots making sure that the proper number of genders, sexes, melanistic quota, disabilities and sexual appetites are employed.

Apple VP shouldn’t have apologized for diversity comments. She’s right

Apple’s first-ever Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion is in full damage-control mode after making some bold comments about the meaning of diversity at the One Young World Summit in Colombia.

At a panel discussion on fighting racial injustice earlier this month, Denise Young Smith, who was called “Silicon Valley’s most powerful black woman” by Quartz, was asked about where her diversity and inclusivity efforts would focus.

“I focus on everyone,” she said. “Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

She continued, “There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.” The real issue, she noted, is “representation and mix.”

Smith is absolutely right. Diversity comes in many forms—not just race, gender, or sexual orientation. Diversity of experience, and by extension, diversity of thought, are just as important as any other form of diversity.

While she was applauded for her response by the audience, it didn’t take long for the 20-year veteran at Apple to issue an official apology for failing to keep in line with the “sanctioned” diversity narrative:

“I regret the choice of words I used to make this point. I understand why some people took offense. My comments were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it. For that, I’m sorry…Understanding that diversity includes women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and all underrepresented minorities is at the heart of our work to create an environment that is inclusive of everyone.”

What could have been a groundbreaking step for the diversity movement was spoiled by Smith’s phony apology. Had she remained firm in her principles, and truly embraced Apple’s motto (“Think Different”), she could have laid the groundwork for a revolution in an otherwise narrow-minded field. [snip]

Just one more example of how far over the edge the Loony Left has gone.

Growing old in America

 

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . .

  • I was born white, which now,whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
  • I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
  • I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.
  • I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
  • I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
  • I am older than 50, which makes me a bit less than I used to be.
  • I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
  • I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
  • I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
  • I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
  • I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.
  • Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends a “basket of deplorables”.
  • I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found challenges in my life and my thinking!
  • I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
  • Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!
  • And if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with. I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

Food Follies

Man is an omnivore, no a herbivore and not just a carnivore. One look at the dental arrangement confirms this. We don’t have the heavy enamel on our teeth to allow for the constant grinding necessary to break down cellulose. Nor is our digestive system made to deal with meat the way a carnivore does. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to find out there is a problem with a strict vegetarian diet.

Pregnant vegetarians are three times more likely to have kids who abuse drugs and alcohol, study finds

  • A new study has found that the children of pregnant women who are vegetarian have a higher risk of struggling with addiction
  • The report’s researchers observed 15-year-old children whose mothers did not eat meat during their pregnancies
  • These children were twice as likely to engage in underage drinking and smoking

Women who avoid meat during pregnancy dramatically raise the risk of their children becoming hooked on drugs and alcohol, according to new research.

A study from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism found that adolescents aged 15 whose mothers refrained from eating meat while they were pregnant were more prone to substance abuse.

Specifically, they were almost twice as likely to indulge in underage drinking and smoking, and nearly three times as likely to use cannabis.

While recent health trends reflect larger numbers of people converting to vegetarianism, researchers are warning of the adverse affects of the lifestyle that could harm children.

For the study researchers analyzed the habits of 5,109 women and their offspring. The children of those who ate meat daily during their pregnancies were compared to those whose mothers abstained from meat during that time.

The due dates of the women the researches observed were between April 1, 1991, and December 31, 1992.

The researchers evaluated 5,246 of their children and the median age of the adolescent participants was about 15.5 years old.

The alcohol, drug and tobacco use habits of all the children were evaluated, which led researchers to link vegetarianism during pregnancy to an increased risk of substance abuse. [snip]

Most vegetarians have a B12 deficiency while pregnant, as the vitamin is mainly available from meats and shellfish.

Vitamin B12 is essential for the body to metabolize folic acid, a nutrient vital for the development of a healthy fetus.

Because of this, the implementation of vegetarian foods that are B12-rich along with more widespread use of supplements could prove beneficial for pregnant vegetarians.

Dr Hibbeln said: ‘Among Western populations infants of vitamin B12 deficient mothers have poor brain growth, developmental regression, irritability, thrive poorly and demonstrate residual deficits in cognitive and social development.’

There is always a penalty for living outside the normal.

It didn’t take the State Owned Media and the politicians to drag out their podiums and politicize this mass shooting. All calling for every manner of gun control. None of which wold have stopped the mayhem.

If they idiots want to stop these mass shootings, it is quite simple.

Ban concerts & meetings.

 

No groups, no targets!

This make as much sense as the Lefts ideas of banning inanimate objects. Should we ban hotel windows, cars, knives, bats, fists, teeth, feet or anything else that can be used as a weapon.

For starters, perhaps we should ban those individuals who rid society of morality and the nuclear family.
We ave laws governing all these possibilities The Left doesn’t like them; calls the the “Ten Suggestions.

Clerk Shoots Would-Be Armed Robber, Gets Suspended From Job

New Mexico Circle K clerk who shot an accused armed robber, says she was suspended for two weeks by the company.

“He pointed the gun at my face, I grabbed my gun from my pocket, I cocked it and I shot,” Jennifer Wertz told KOAT-TV.

“He stepped into the door pointed the gun at me – and I reacted.”

Wertz says she had her gun with her Monday because she was supposed to work until 10 p.m. She said she feels uncomfortable walking to her car at night.

She said she was not behind the counter when a man barged in the Circle K with a gun.

Police say 23-year-old Ferron Mendez was shot in the torso and is expected to survive.

Circle K suspended Wertz for two weeks for shooting the suspect. Hertz is now looking for another job.

The convenience store management did not respond to KOAT’s requests to comment on the incident.

Idiot’s Corner

Teardrops falling like rain… now since Weiner has to face some serious time. This critter is a disgrace but typical of the Donkey Party; remorse only after they get caught.

Anthony Weiner gets hard time

Anthony Weiner got a stiff dose of reality Monday as a judge slapped him with a nearly two-year sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl — a heinous crime that cost him both his marriage and his freedom.

Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote rejected defense pleas to spare Weiner any time behind bars and instead ordered him to spend 21 months in a federal penitentiary, saying she needed to make an example of the high-profile pervert.

Weiner, who had faced up to ten years in prison, hung his head in shame, covered his face and cried silently into his hands.

 He broke down a second time at the end of the hearing, as his lawyers tried to comfort him by patting his back. His mom, Frances, wept in the gallery, where she sat with Weiner’s dad, Morton, and his brother, Jason.

Weiner didn’t stop crying until after court officers had cleared the room.

Weiner, 53, had begged the judge for probation so he could continue recovering from his longtime sex addiction and “be a good father to my son.”

The serial sexter struggled with his emotions as soon as he started reading a prepared statement in which he described reaching a new low by getting involved online with the underage North Carolina teen.

According to the feds, Weiner sent her “adult pornography” and repeatedly convinced her to strip naked and fondle herself while he watched via Skype and Snapchat in February and March 2016. [snip]

“I was a very sick man for a very long time, but I’m also responsible for the damage I have done. Your Honor, I have a disease, but I have no excuse.”

Weiner said he was “profoundly sorry to the victim” and obliquely referenced the previous sexting scandals that forced him from Congress in 2011 and torpedoed his 2013 comeback bid for New York City mayor. [snip]

Since when is being a pervert a disease?
Right after being a drunk became a disease.
Yup, the disease of victimhood, this allows one to wander the streets in sackcloth and ashes beating you head with a board while wailing “I’m a victim, help me.”

Next he’ll want a trophy for confessing.
