Just a brief bit of history to remind people – and Democrats and Muslims – that the myth of Palestine and Palestinian people has been around for a while, and no Arab leader has ever, even when it power in the area, created a nation called Palestine. The closest to Palestine that ever existed was the 2nd Century AD Roman name for the entire region, Syria Palaestina.
There was never any real attempt to provide the “Palestinians” with a nation to call their own. If there had been, or even any compassion from other Arab types, there would be 1.5 million or more “Palestinians” living in 58 UN-recognized Palestine refugee camps in: Jordan, Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. And they certainly wouldn’t be on their 3rd generation in the those camps.
With the Negro faggot, Jussie Smollett having been convicted on 5 of 6 charges relating to his faking of a “hate crime” against him to bolster his flagging career, maybe more people will begin to understand that it’s easier to believe in Santa than to believe in any claims of hate crimes by protected classes of individuals today, given that approximately 90% of those reported have proven to be false and a large percentage of the “real” ones being overplayed and overreacted-to bullshit.
Of course, it’s also easier to believe in Santa than to believe that Smollett, an actor and somewhat famous, will see even one day of the possible 15 years of prison time he could – and should – be sentenced to. His sort, irrespective of race or sexuality, almost never receives real punishments.
Google modifies, tweaks, and just plain changes its search algorithm on a regular basis, most often to disrupt the effectiveness of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts. Now, however, a Google research team is trying to changeÂ the algorithm, to measure the “trustworthiness” of a page, rather than its reputation across the web.
The system â€“ which is has not yet goneÂ live â€“ counts the number of “incorrect” facts within a page to determine its ranking in search results instead of its reputation or popularity, as measured by incoming links, across the web.
Google – The Internet’s Gatekeeper
This, of course, begs the questions of whose facts? Whose truths? Who will decide what is innacurate and, hence, to be downlisted and effectively censored by Google?
Google’s answers are that facts that the web unanimously agrees upon are considered to be a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that dissent from this consensus by containing contradictory information are to be bumped down the rankings, effectively censoring them by removing them from the bulk of the web’s users.
So, insofar as the internet’s greatest gatekeeper, Google is concerned, consensus reality will be the only reality. And, of course, Google will be the arbiter of that consensus.
I guess, if Google’s plan is allowed to be implemented, nobody will read where you wrote, “And yet it moves.“
Poor fat people – the War on Food is tied up with race-baiting and animal husbandry as applied to the poor, especially poor Blacks. Hilariously is predicated upon the postulate that America has achieved a society where the commonest dietary problem of the “poor” is that they are too fat.
OK, given the state of real poverty in the world, I’ll unashamedly cop to that as a postulate. Hellfire! America’s poor people are too fucking fat! Huzzah! Shout it out as a point of national pride.
Liberals, Progressives, and worthless political panderers such as Michelle Obama – ironically, of fat-assed fame – feel differently about the matter though, or say they claim.
Somehow, Some Way, This is My Fault
Those sorts view poor fat people, who largely happen to be Black, as victims of some vast conspiracy made up of wealthier White people who, for some reason unknown to all, want the poor to be fat. This is especially true when they speak of fat Blacks.
Apparently, they want Americans to believe that responsible personal behaviors, self-restraint, and at least marginally decent eating habits are a “White Privilege.” Hence, we’re hit with lies about “food deserts” and calls for “Justice” of some sort – and prohibitions of various foods and drinks.
All cultures and peoples have their myths and myth cycles. These myths are actually one of the identifying foundations of those separate cultures and peoples and, by and large, they are both good and necessary. Only upon rare occasions do these myths become damaging.
Sadly, in America, one of our myths has become damaging. It might even be lethal to our nation.
Greek Mythology – It Couldn’t Happen In America
“It can’t happen here,” is a pernicious belief based on a self-serving and self-deluding perversion of American Exceptionalism. It’s a potentially lethally harmful myth.
Not only can what is happening in Greece and Europe happen in America, it is already happening. We just haven’t hit the bottom … yet.
California and many other of the several States are, essentially, as bankrupt as Greece and are being propped up by the federal government, a government that is so deep in debt that it boggles the mind – and they want to keep borrowing more and fight against any reining in of their profligate spending!
What is the scariest is that one thing really can’t happen here in America. The European Union is predicted to collapse very soon but that can’t happen in America; we have laws against secession and breaking the union. As no federal government that I could imagine would reduce itself, any attempt by the states to break the union for their own survival would lead to civil war.
The upcoming 2102 elections may not be the watershed moment but, if we don’t move swiftly, strongly, and sternly towards fiscal responsibility in this election, we will bring that moment closer – assuming it’s not here or already past – and make correcting the problems that much harder.
