Mélange

There is no dearth of nastiness, idiocy and insanity loose in the world today. It runs the gamut from the mental illness of the Left believing we need to save their jobs because, well because they think they’re important to the sordid work of making child sex dolls. There are many steps between the loathsome and the horrid.

Denver Post Staff Makes Desperate Plea Amid Layoffs: The Paper ‘Must Be Saved’

The Denver Post issued what could only be described as a cry for help on Friday, publishing an editorial pleading with its hedge fund owners to support the iconic city paper. The piece also informed readers of impending layoffs.

“At The Denver Post on Monday, more than two dozen reporters, editors, photographers, videographers, page designers, digital producers and opinion staff will walk out the door. Our marching orders are to cut a full 30 by the start of July,” read the editorial titled, “As Vultures Circle the Denver Post Must be Saved.” [snip]

The Outbreak of Severe Bleeding Caused by Synthetic Weed Has Now Spread Beyond Illinois

A frightening outbreak of uncontrollable bleeding linked to inhaling synthetic weed products seems to have spread beyond the borders of Illinois. On Thursday, Maryland health officials reported that at least one person in the state has come down with similar symptoms, the first case reported there.

The anonymous Maryland patient was rushed to the emergency room on April 3, having developed unexplained bruising and bleeding from different parts of their body soon after taking a synthetic pot product. The person was later hospitalized. [snip]

Boy told police he wanted to feel ‘powerful’ after listening to rap. But he went too far

A 14-year-old Winter Haven Christian School student told police he had been listening to rap music and wanted to feel “powerful” and “cool,” according to police.

But his chosen means to feel empowered wound up breaking the law.

Winter Haven police arrested the student on Wednesday after they found a Kimel AP-9 semiautomatic pistol with 11 rounds of ammunition and two knives inside a backpack that was tucked inside a locker. [snip]

He was way ‘COOL’ and now he gets to chill out.

Factory making child sex robots left me in tears: The even darker side of sex doll industry

The demand for sex dolls with extra realistic features like moving parts and artificial intelligence is growing but nothing could prepare reporter James Young for the breaking of the ultimate taboo – child sex dolls

[snip] I also found that there is an even darker side to the sex doll industry. As the tour continued, the owner directed me towards an unfinished doll.

What caught me off guard, as he attempted to show me how they trimmed the rough edges, was that this doll wasn’t the compact 45kg version of a woman, but something smaller.

I felt like I’d been hit in the gut.

The doll appeared younger. I tried to compose myself, to have an objective discussion to understand why the owner had chosen to produce such a doll, but tears began to flood my eyes.

My mind was processing what it meant that this doll existed in physical space.

The harsh truth that some people want to bring their fantasies to reality, that imagination for these people is not enough, and other people are willing to sell it to them. [snip]

A Third Of Millennials Aren’t Sure The Earth Is Round, Survey Finds

A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape.

YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine percent of young adults answered that they have “always believed” the planet was flat.

Another nine percent said of young adults said they thought the planet was spherical but had doubts about it. In a disturbing display of indecision, 16 percent of millennials said they weren’t sure what the shape of the planet was. [snip]

How can they believe in Global Warming on a Flat World?

The Millennials

Perhaps these “Wunderkind” might like to answer one simple question. From where will this retirement money come? The Government doesn’t have any save only what it steals from the citizens through taxes, fines and other corrupt levies. Is it to be the Bernie’s “Tax the Rich” to pay for you?
They have been well indoctrinated with great pains taken to make sure they don’t exercise any capacity of thought.

Millennials Aren’t Saving Because They Think Capitalism Will Be Finished By The Time They Reach 65

I have to apologize for my generation. I mean there’s the appalling affinity for the Democratic Party, the safe spaces, the anti-free speech antics, the triggering, and the fetishistic fixation on victimhood through the patriarchy. A lecture on intersectionality, you say. I’d rather chug bleach. So, I guess it wouldn’t shock you at all that Millennials aren’t saving because they think capitalism will be a thing of the past by the time they reach 65. Emily Zanotti of The Daily Wire has more:

Some millennials aren’t saving for retirement in the hopes that by the time they reach age 65, Capitalism will be a thing of the past.

In an incredible article on Salon, a full two-thirds of millennials admit that they haven’t started a savings account for their golden years. But, perhaps more shocking, a significant group of millennials seem to believe they don’t need to, because by the time they’re old enough to stop working, America will have become a Socialist Workers paradise which will no longer require them to meet financial obligations.

Most of the millenials Salon cites have typical millennial money woes. People entering the job market in the last decade have found themselves largely in a gig economy, faced with mounting student debt and fewer jobs that offer benefits.

Universities are charging more for four year degrees, even though the market demand for, say, degrees in Beyonce Studies is remarkably low, because the government freely hands out student loans, regardless of risk.

Now, there is hope. Yes, young Americans give socialism high marks, another statistic that makes me want to vomit, but that support drops when—you guessed it—they find a job, start making money, and begin to pay taxes.

The U of Wisc becomes a Trade School

The educational process of K-12 is an indoctrination rather than an education program and has been since the ’70’s. Now the persons discharged from high school will attend an institution of purported higher learning that will not have a core of study in the Arts and Humanities including philosophy, history and English. Instead they’ll be charge tuition for courses that BOCES programs are setup to teach, all on the taxpayer dollar through Federal programs.

University of Wisconsin campus proposes elimination of majors such as English, history

The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point is reportedly discussing a plan to eliminate 13 majors including English, philosophy, history and Spanish.

The campus — one of 11 campuses in the University of Wisconsin system — would instead focus on programs that have “clear career pathways,” The Washington Post reported.

Under the proposal, the school would expand areas such as marketing, management, graphic design and computer information systems — areas that “have demonstrated value and demand in the region,” according to the school.

The school’s administration is framing the idea as a way to increase its declining enrollment and to deal with a multimillion-dollar deficit, according to the Post.  [snip]

“Although some majors are proposed to be eliminated, courses would continue to be taught in these fields, and minors or certificates will be offered.”

Swell. Not only are these individuals forking over the loot for courses they could get elsewhere, but are coming out uneducated too boot.
Instead of sitting in the basement playing some idiot game, working in a small retail store would have taught them marketing skills, customer service and managerial knowledge firsthand. And received pay for it too.

The Millennials

Millennials have a completely new way of going about doing things: Communicating, dining out, working, habitation, dating and finally marriage. Here’s how one father got the word of his daughter’s impending nuptials.

Millennial Marriage! The New Way

THE E-MAIL


Dearest Dad….
I’m coming home to get married soon, so get your checkbook out. I’m in love with a man who is far away from me.
As you know, I’m in Australia and he lives in Scotland. We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, and had long chats on WhatsApp. He proposed to me on
Skype, and now we’ve had two months of a relationship through Viber.

My beloved Dad, I’d like your blessing, good wishes, and a really big wedding. Lots of love and thanks.

Your daughter, Lilly

 

THE RESPONSE

My Dear Lilly,

Like wow! Cool!

I suggest that you two get married on Twitter, have fun on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon, and pay for it all through PayPal.
And when you get fed up with your new husband, sell him on eBay.

Love,
Dad

Laissez le bon temps rouler

How did you like the market plunge yesterday? Everything had the bottom drop out. The gnomes have been calling for this for some time now and it had to happen. All that money on the table in profits was just too enticing to leave there for someone else to take.

This is a great time for those with a strong spine and capital to invest. If you own some dogs that have been under performing, perhaps sell them now and taking a capital loss, use that money to buy some bargains that are sitting nice prices, particularly those that pay hefty dividends, like Ford (F) and Exxon Mobil (XOM). Ford pays $0.68/share quarterly and can be had for the price of a couple of frappawhattas at Starbucks. Look at it this way. You’re not going to become the next J. Pierpont by slurping up a couple of dark roasted each day.

The metals bounced around too. They were not in the usual flight to safety zone; most of the money strolled over into bonds or cash. [Most Recent Quotes from www.kitco.com]

Observations

Like most males, I don’t waste my time shopping in stores. In stores, I buy and get the hell out. I know what I want and put my time to better use elsewhere.
Shopping is done online, researching the various items desired, prices and locations where they may be obtained. also if possible I shall make my purchase via the internet, saving the necessity of dealing with some individual who may not have knowledge of the product.

Violating my protocols, I accompanied a friend on his need to purchase a new iPhone. (I have no idea why one needs such a thing) Off we tootled to the nearest Apple store where he commenced discussing his desires with the most scrofulous individual they let behind the counter. Disreputable attire, half shaven demi-gotee and a stench of used tobacco product swirling around him. I’m not sure if that was his hair or a fright wig. The other ‘sales’ personnel looked slightly better but nothing that a delousing bath wouldn’t fix.

Which leads one to question just what are the wages paid by retail these days? That is a serious query; if these snowflakes cannot afford suitable raiment, how are they saving for their future, for retirement and how much is going into Social Security.

All the clangor and uproar from the Left, Congress and the Boomers over the insolvency of the program is approaching, one has to ask who and how much is being contributed by those working. A dearth of contributions surely means a shortfall of distributions. Given that the Government spends what is contributed as it comes in, the system never gains as it once did.

Some millennials have good paying positions, save and are prepping for their retirement. More, however, are not. And those squawking bozos in our institutions of lower learning believe the government is responsible for taking care of their future, failing to understand that the Government has no money, only yours.

These individuals looking like they live as indigent workers will find some sort of disruption in that style. Trump might be that bump in the road. As the GDP rises, wages and productivity will also, money will drive a culture change. It is like gentrification of a neighborhood. Inexorable, constantly occurring and it moves out the undesirable. In this instance, the undesirable are the nonperforming. Or the system crashes.
Given the numbers of payees contributing and amounts, bet of the crash.

Social Security is a Ponzi fraud no matter how one slices it.

Snowflakes on Parade

All of the howling, screeching, in the streets whining, “Not My President!” on Inauguration Day finally has an outlet.
The new 1040 and 1040A tax forms are out for the taxable year 2017 and they have an added line for those individuals who are “Resisters”, “Not My President” and “Never Trumpers” . You have a separate line to check so that you can proudly say you resisted to the very end. (See inset)

Check box 4! The

Administration certainly

will take YOUR fair share.
