Just in time for “distance learning,” backed by the teachers unions and Dimocrats generally, to keep parents at home and the economy down, Google Fiber blacks out homes all over Austin and elsewhere across the country. Not good, but sort of amusing coming from the Big Censor of YouTube and general manipulator of search results. Fix it, you dumbbutts!
“Last week, [conservative] PragerU was locked out of its Twitter account for retweeting a press conference of eight physicians in Washington, D.C., which had already received 17 million views, and Facebook has just informed us that if we even cite studies that show possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine (with zinc) in the early stages of a patient with COVID-19, we will lose our Facebook account.”
HCQ is cheap. Vaccines are not. Big Tech and Big Pharma know best.
Bar, never one to pay too much attention to the news media (bless her heart) is suddenly hearing the screamers and is worried about what Iran may do to us for Trump’s assassination of the terror generals. Nothing, I say, at least not here in the relatively sparsely populated middle of the country.
Iran is a poor police state with little in the way of technology, no air force to speak of, no navy, and above all no intercontinental ballistic missiles. Even if they finally (after years of bluster) build a nuke, putting it atop an ICBM to withstand launch and flight is almost as hard as making the ICBM. So no worries, unless you live nearby. And we don’t.
Spengler has it right, though. The Iranian regime is mad. We’ve been at war with them since long before 9-11. Preemptive destruction of their nuclear facilities would be wise. And the sooner the better.
Season 4 is up and running. As usual, with my poor hearing, the story gets less of my attention than the special effects. The show’s claim to being really scientific, however, gets blown up every time we hear a rocket engine burning somewhere or an explosion in space. Really now.
Must not remember the old horror movie poster line: In space, nobody can hear you scream.
