The Ghost of Netflix Future

31 May 2018

“Who? Netflix? Ah, yeah. They killed themselves back in 2018. Between a couple of weird personnel decisions that decimated their viewership and a few billion in content development costs, well… The writing was on the wall.”

“Huh? I really don’t know why they did that. I guess they figured the millions the Øbamas made though politics and the presidency weren’t enough, so one of the big Øbama bundlers, also a chief content officer for Netflix, Ted Sarandos, convinced some other idiots that it would be a good idea. I can’t understand it either. Susan Rice being on the board probably didn’t hurt his efforts, either.”

“Yeah, they had some really entertaining original stuff – though the second season of Stranger Things was severely disconnected from the first season and, though sensational as all hell, really lost me. I didn’t bother finishing it. Anyway, I found interesting enough fare on Amazon Prime. Though Bezos is no conservative, at least he has had the good sense not to hire up the failed Øbama administration.”

“I know, right? What could the Øbamas and Susan Rice possibly bring to the entertainment industry? Dyed-in-the-wool leftists – socialists, if you ask me –  how will they resist using this platform to spew leftist garbage? Not that much in Hollywood and the like have much that leans right, mind you. What possible business sense could this make?! None, I tell you. It is purely politically motivated. Netflix is now a declared propaganda arm for the left. And it’s not like Øbama needed it – Lord knows: every mainstream media outlet is staffed by Øbama sycophants. So much so that he has had a rather loud voice in trying to derail the Trump agenda. I don’t recall any other ex-president (and I use the term loosely) attempting to interfere – openly criticizing a new sitting president – in the manner Øbama has. Of course, the Bushes chimed in as well, but at least they weren’t openly engaged in destroying the country beforehand. In my opinion, Øbama behaved stupidly his entire time in office.”

“Prison time for Øbama? Don’t know. As revelation after revelation pops up from Mueller’s fishing expedition, it certainly does appear that Øbama turned the justice department into an arm of his personal supreme soviet. Biggest presidential scandal in history. And his sycophant media says he had not one scandal during his presidency! Pshaw! What about Fast and Furious? Or, another: how come so many recipients of ‘stimulus’ funds were Øbama donors? I could go on and on.”

“But, yeah – if the evidence proves that Øbama was abusing the office to the extent it appears he had been, I would think that he should be indicted for malfeasance in office, at the very least. Doubtful that would ever happen. After all, Hillary still roams the earth free as a bird after multiple felony violations.”

“Anyway, got to go. Yeah. I couldn’t countenance tacitly supporting the Øbamas through my Netflix subscription. I remember waiting a bit – such a daft move couldn’t possibly be real – but once it was confirmed, I cancelled it that very morning. Yeah, I’ve missed it. But that’s the difference between conservatives and liberals. We will make sacrifices for our principles. If tables were turned, liberals would have lobbied for laws to make Netflix illegal…”

“Hey! Gotta let you go. Yeah. Talk to you later.”


Study: Young Black Children Have Higher Suicide Rates Than Whites

22 May 2018

Hell of a headline, isn’t it? And then you read the article to find that it only applies to ages 5 – 12. Yeah: you read that right. The MSM – and some alleged scientists – thinks 5 year old kids purposefully commit suicide. Please show me one, please. Show me one child of that age that intentionally ended their life. A child that young has no basis by which to adjudge their actions regarding risk of life. I venture most believe that they’d walk around like Flat Stanley if they were to be run over by a steamroller.

Part of what raises my dander on this headline is that, reading through this alleged work of journalism,  theres this nugget:

The study, published Monday in the journal JAMA and based on an analysis of suicide rates among children aged 5 to 17 between 2001 and 2015, found suicide rates were 42 percent lower overall among black youths than white youths.

So why isn’t the headline “Study: White Children Have Higher Suicide Rates Than Blacks Overall”? That seems to be the main conclusion of this alleged study. I am not even going to expound upon what absolutely careless and bald pandering to race this is. Why do we have to waggle our fingers at some bullshit statistic like this to make it about race? What the hell are these assholes thinking they accomplish by trying to make something like this about race?

And the study. Just like anthropomorphic climate change: “Damn! The study doesn’t show what we want. Let’s find a way to make it do so.” Makes one ashamed to have anything to do with the sciences in today’s world.

Disgusting. How low we must scrape to keep racism alive.

I’ll tell you what: if you rely on these slack-jawed morons for your news, we’re in for a heap of trouble. It ain’t about black and white, folks. People of all races commit suicide, and their reasons are as varied as are their personalities. Many people of all races live in horrid conditions. Many people of all races live in exquisite luxury. Anything that prompts one to suppress the survival instinct in order to take their own life is a mental illness and not an issue of race…


THIS is what you’re asking for…

10 May 2018

For all those (besides socialists, communists, the leadership of the DNC, and other despotic types) who believe the government should see to your needs, I can only refer you to this lesson on the subject:

THIS is what it means to have all your needs supplied by the government. It means that the government decides the rules. It means that the government can change those rules at their whim. There is no “social contract”. There are no rules that say what they must provide and to whom. If there were, who would defend those rules? Certainly, when one is dependent on the government for such basic needs, one  is unlikely to have the means to fight back.

Can you imagine being the recipient of some necessary care, only to have the government suddenly decide that you can no longer have it. For these people, they don’t have to imagine it. They get to live it.

Lesson here: do everything in your power to NOT become subject to government largess – this included electing those who do not wish to enslave you to government-provided necessities. Do all in your power to enable you to carry yourself through life without requiring the help of the government. Rely on yourself first, others second, and the government dead last. Or you may one day find yourself elderly, enfeebled, and evicted.

I’m not saying that there is no evil in the private sector. There are and always will be those who take advantage of others – but there is usually recourse against those operating in the private sector. There are also normally compassion and empathy in the private sector. By nature of what they are and how they are comprised, there can be no compassion or empathy in the bureaucracies which are set up to manage things like universal healthcare. There are also rarely such things as thoughtfulness or logic. Only machine-like adherence to rules and regulations, coupled with a  huge, slogging inefficiency which renders petitioning the bureaucracy pointless.

Think I’m full of it? Just google Alfie Evans or Charlie Gard to see two cases in point. And these were murdered by the social medicine system they hold up as the Gold Standard when discussing doing similar here. These are only the two we’re aware of, and likely only due to their young ages and the efforts of their parents to save them. How many more allow their loved ones to be terminated like sheep to the slaughter because “the government says we must”? Cases such as Alfie’s and Charlie’s are not exceptions, people. These are examples of what happens when our lives become dependent on a bureaucracy executing its rules.
