Similarities

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been finding similarities between pop songs. They don’t sound similar, but there are moments where something about them merges. What’s amazing to me is they’re decades apart. I don’t know how I come up with these. A modern song sounds familiar, and the older song just pops in my head.

A glimpse into our future

This may just be satire, but I can’t help but think that these videos could very well resemble our future. Hats off to Neel Kolhatkar, who wrote and directed them.

#Equality

Why do I say this? A couple of segments from Bill Maher’s show illustrate.

You know the saying, “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they attack you. Then you win”? Well, the PC crowd may have won…

Further, a segment from Reason.tv

Does this make me look fat?

I’ve been following “Foamy the Squirrel” for probably the last 6 years. I first discovered him griping about dealing with tech support from India. Ah, those were the days…

I’ve known for a while that everything under the sun that is considered bad or harmful is being ascribed to carbon dioxide and global warming, either as a cause, or an effect. For people who’ve paid attention, it makes it real obvious there’s a bandwagon effect going on here, that the good name of science is being used to corral people into certain modes of living that our betters want us to move to. This is yet another example. Foamy gripes that now obesity is being seen as a cause of global warming. This is no joke. There’s even an article in Scientific American about it, taking the idea seriously.

Personally, I think the idea that obesity causes global warming is a joke, but that doesn’t stop some people from trying to push stuff like this in order to “solve” our obesity problem. Rather than try to educate people in society, which our betters have given up on, global warming has become a catch-all psychological barrier they’ve erected to change our behavior. I look at this example and think, “Come on. Do they really expect us to buy this??” Personally I find it insulting. Rather than engage the public, we’re shown a door and told, “Go through it.” If we ask why, we’re just told, “If you do not go through it, the world will end. Do it! Do it NOW!” It’s idiotic.
