Former Obama Labor Secretary Tom Perez was voted chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) after defeating Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison in a tight race Saturday afternoon in Atlanta.

Perez, who was discussed as a potential vice presidential pick before former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton selected Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, remained a strong supporter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). His views on the deal continued even after the party’s shift to the left forced Clinton and other Democrats to denounce former President Obama’s so-called 'trade deal'.

This was the same so-called 'trade deal' that Hillary Clinton previously called the "Gold Standard", and the same one that Donald Trump repealed by Executive Order.

“Trade agreements like the TPP are critical to our 21st century competitiveness,” Perez wrote in an April 2015 op-ed featured in the Boulder Daily Camera. The former labor secretary championed the TPP under Obama, becoming one of its most vocal supporters.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders blasted the TPP and previous trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a similar message that was championed by President Donald Trump. Perez’s support for the TPP is an awkward position as the Democratic party continues to be pulled to the left by the populist Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sanders’ wing.

A December 2016 video purports to show Perez avoiding answering a question about why he supported TPP as unions opposed the deal.

Perez defeated Ellison 235 to 200 after two rounds of voting at the Democratic winter meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Ellison was viewed as the progressive candidate, while Perez was supported by the Obama establishment wing and remaining Clinton associates.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico, signaling that he is aggressively pursuing plans to erect "a great wall" along the 2,000-mile border.

The agency said it will request bids on or around March 6 and that companies would have to submit "concept papers" to design and build prototypes by March 10, according to FedBizOpps.gov, a website for federal contractors. The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20, and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by March 24.

The president told the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday that construction will start "very soon" and is "way, way, way ahead of schedule."

The agency's notice gave no details on where the wall would be built first and how many miles would be covered initially. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has sought employees' opinions during border tours of California, Arizona and Texas.

It's unclear how soon Congress would provide funding and how much. The Government Accountability Office estimates it would cost on average $6.5 million a mile for a fence to keep out people who try to enter on foot and $1.8 million a mile for vehicle barriers. There are currently 354 miles of pedestrian fencing and 300 miles of vehicle barriers, much of it built during President George W. Bush's second term.

Republican leaders in Congress have said Trump's wall would cost between $12 billion and $15 billion. Trump has suggested $12 billion.

An internal Homeland Security Department report prepared for Kelly estimates the cost of extending the wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border at about $21 billion, according to a U.S. government official who is involved in border issues. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the report has not been made public.

The Homeland Security report proposes an initial phase that would extend fences 26 miles and a second wave that would add 151 miles, plus 272 "replacemPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday her country needs to meet its NATO obligation to spend 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

The Trump administration is actively pushing NATO allies to increase their spending. Germany currently spends about 1.2 percent of GDP on defense, which Merkel vows to change if she is elected for a fourth term in office this September.

“Obligations have to be fulfilled,” Merkel said at a campaign rally Saturday. “And, others in the world will demand that of us. And, I think they’re right that Germany must uphold its obligations.”

Germany — which turned pacifist after starting and losing two world wars in the 20th century — recently started a number of new defense initiatives with France, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania and the Czech Republic.

Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen further announced plans Tuesday to expand the German military from 178,000 troops to 198,000 by 2024.

Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s vice chancellor and new foreign minister, questions whether or not Germany is obligated to rapidly increase its defense spending. Gabriel argues Germany’s spending on integrating a million newly-arrived refugees should be taken into account.

“One has to ask whether it would really calm Germany’s neighbors if we turned into a big military power in Europe and … spent over 60 billion euros ($63 billion) a year (on defense),” Gabriel said Wednesday, according to Deutsche Welle. “I have my doubts.”

And how is this a bad thing?..


You guys don't get how huge this is.

Getting Germany to submit to America on the world stage has tremendous implications.

When did Germany become part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire?


If you mean good by building up your army just in time to become part of the Islamic caliphate. Then yes she is doing good things for her masters

Tell me something anon, if Trump were really a communist stooge, why is it that his haters who protest against him wave communist flags, burn American flags and are associated with groups that openly call themselves Socialists and Communists? Isn't there something a bit contradictory with that narrative the mainstream media is pushing?

Sweden Is Sliding Into Chaos — and the Media Is Applauding

Sweden is the canary in the coal mine for the West

Sweden has been dominating the news since Donald Trump mentioned the troubled Scandinavian country during a rally on Saturday in Florida. Trump mentioned Sweden while speaking about the massive transformations various European countries have undergone as a result of the ongoing "migrant crisis".

Here's the line that got Trump in trouble: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden” — Poor choice of words perhaps but the context was clear. The lying press took this to mean that he was referring to a specific terrorist attack that had occurred recently.

They gloated and guffawed with their typical smarmy snark and started one long collective gloat about how there wasn't any terror attack in Sweden. Now they had him! Another example of the president propagating fake news! The only problem was that Trump was referring to a Tucker Carlson segment about Sweden. He clarified his earlier comments in a tweet. Trump then doubled down.

The mainstream media jumped at his throat as expected, but this was a classic Trump misdirection. Trump has pulled this trick several times during the campaign, he leaves an opening for the press to swoop in. Almost always, it is a well-laid trap that ends up making the press look stupid and drawing attention to a topic that they had pointedly ignored before that point.

Three days after Trump brought up Sweden, massive riots started in the suburbs of Stockholm. This time it was in the neighborhood of Rinkeby. And just like that, Donald Trump was vindicated. To top it all off, now, many blissfully unaware people are suddenly interested about the situation in Sweden. The media of course, was quick to play down how bad the migrant crisis had hit Sweden. They immediately started doing damage control.

A foreign correspondent for the Swedish liberal tabloid newspaper Expressen fired back. She even came on Tucker Carlson. Her performance raised more questPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The Western mainstream media is full of fucking traitors. They don't just lie to us, they praise our demise. They are the enemy of the people.


Sharia police is now in firm control of Sweden and Germany. Both the king of Sweden and chancellor Merkel of Germany have been removed from office and replaced by the Emir of Eurostan.

Only the United States of Freedom can save Europe now.

Rape is what makes Sweden so peaceful!



Please don't use that pejorative word "rape". It's so triggering. Progressive thinkers prefer terms like

"unplanned intercourse" to describe the natural outcome of a sexual emergency.

Rape only applies if the perpetrator is white.

Leftists in Germany want to give non-citizens, including refugees, the right to vote in elections, according to a new survey.

Supporters of Germany’s major political parties were asked if electoral laws should be changed to allow non-EU citizens living permanently in Germany to vote.

Among supporters of the Social Democrats (SPD), 63.7% supported the proposal, along with 64.8% of Green Party voters. Among centrist parties, there was moderate opposition to the proposal, whereas supporters of the anti-immigration AfD party opposed the idea by a 96.9% margin.

Latest polls show that Social Democrats leader Martin Schultz would beat Chancellor Angela Merkel if balloting was based on a direct leadership vote. The German federal election takes place on September 24 this year.

This means that if elected Schultz would have the backing of the majority of his supporters should he wish to try and enact the measure.

The obvious benefit to the left of giving non-citizens the vote is that they will overwhelmingly vote for left-wing parties who will reward them by maintaining and expanding the welfare state.

“Essentially, they want to give the refugees a right to vote. They need not be an EU citizen nor do they need to pay taxes. The mere right to vote is you happen to be there at the time,” writes economist Martin Armstrong.

“Can you imagine letting everyone from Mexico come into the USA and then vote if the United States should petition Mexico to join them? It seems the left is just totally insane. They will do absolutely anything to win and that means they will allow all of the Middle East to enter Germany and then outnumber the Germans in their own election?! Where is the logic here?”

Globalist French President Brags About Disarming His Subjugated Citizens, Claims Amnesty Is "Fighting Terrorism!"

One day after president Trump remarked in a speech at a conference that a friend thought "Paris is no longer Paris" after attacks by Islamist militants, French President Francois Hollande fired back at Donald Trump on Saturday. During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, Trump repeated his criticism of Europe's handling of attacks by Islamist militants saying a friend "Jim" no longer wanted to take his family to Paris.

Hollande said Trump should show support for U.S. allies. "There is terrorism and we must fight it together. I think that it is never good to show the smallest defiance toward an allied country. I wouldn't do it with the United States and I'm urging the U.S. president not to do it with France," Hollande said.

HA! This globalist puppet associates allowing Islamic terrorists to pour into his country unvetted – from Jihadist hotspots – with "fighting terrorism!" Wew!

"I won't make comparisons but here, people don't have access to guns." (Yah, because they're disarmed!)

"Here, you don't have people with guns opening fire on the crowd simply for the satisfaction of causing drama and tragedy," Hollande said implying that this happens in America.

The only time this happens in America is in a liberal enforced GUN-FREE ZONE! Hollande, you are a moron!

They may not have access to guns, but they have access to trucks which they then use to murder dozens of innocent bystanders in increasingly more frequent terrorist incidents, meanwhile the lack of guns prevents the local population from defending itself when one or more terrorists - who have access not only to guns but also explosives - use these to attack and murder members of the defenseless French population.

Swedish Citizen Reveals SICK Truth Of What’s Happening Right Outside His Window That Should Wake America The Hell Up

Donald Trump talked about “what’s happening in Sweden” and everyone goes crazy! What do you mean what’s happening in Sweden?

You don’t notice the crazy amounts of mass Muslim migrant crime? Hmmm. How about some riots? Hmmm. Notice it yet?

Here’s a Swedish resident who’s telling the story about what’s happening in his town. The only person who can speak about this better than a Swedish resident would be if the Muslims posted their own videos incriminating themselves of their crimes.


There you have it folks. The guy tells you EXACTLY what you need to know about the situation in Sweden.

If you can’t believe what a resident says, then who can you believe? To anyone who doubted Donald Trump – how do you feel now that you know what’s really happening in Sweden?

The only time I ever heard about Sweden was when people talked about their bikini team. From what I knew, this was a fun loving place to live where they had barely any problems. Then I find out that Sweden has become a cess pool thanks to the Muslim migrant refugees and their barbaric crime waves.

Now if you wear a bikini in Sweden, then you’ll probably be raped by a Muslim migrant refugee. The sex crimes are out of control!

Look folks – no one wants to deal with invasions of mass criminals. But the problem isn’t US – it’s them. If the Muslim migrant refugees went to new locations and were NICE people who helped make the town a better place to live, then all of America would want them.

But that’s not how it is. These crummy cretins continuously commit crimes.

Japan’s government is urging employees to leave the office early every last Friday of the month, hoping to crackdown on a culture of workaholics while providing a shot in the arm for the economy.

The Premium Friday campaign, which launched this week, is calling on workers to leave the office at 3pm once a month, and spend time with family, dine out or go shopping, according to Japan Times.

It is hoped that the initiative will encourage people to spend more money on food, in shops and on travel. All Nippon Airways, the country’s largest airline, is offering special discounts from Friday in a bid to entice people to take trips.

“We hope this will encourage people to rest and to leave the office earlier,” an ANA spokeswoman told Japan Times. “Participation by the government and companies is needed to push forward reforms (in the working culture),” she added.

The campaign is part of a general push by the government to limit excessive working hours following the suicide of an employee at ad agency Dentsu that was reportedly ruled to be a “death by overwork”, and cast a harsh spotlight on Japan’s deeply entrenched problem of overtime and burnout. The president of Dentsu stepped down in the wake of the tragic incident and the company has since announced new measures such as switching off the office lights between 10pm and 5am.

The government hopes that one welcome side-effect of the push to promote free time will be stimulus to the economy.

According to Reuters, both the labour force and the population is shrinking in Japan. The country wants to reduce working hours to encourage women to work and get men more involved in raising and caring for children. Increased leisure time should also mean more time between the sheets to boost the birth rate, the agency reports.

Last month, Internet company Yahoo Japan Corp said that it was thinking about reducing the number of working days to four-a-week by 2020.

It isn't as good as it used to be. At the end of the 1980's, when the economy basically came into a halt, labor laws were reformed and, therefore, being fired was made easier and work contracts can be on other forms, such as based on result, but >>518480 is mostly right: compared to the West, Japanese work culture is much more permissive because it isn't predicated strictly on results.

Still, because of that, you are expected to arrive early and leave late night if you want to have any progress in your career. Some people literally live in their companies: sleeping, eating and working in company grounds. Working 9 to 5 will get you nowhere and will probably also warrant you some verbal warnings for not being as engaged in the company as you could have been.

Also, there are some bad sides of not having your work predicated on production and results: many times things go nowhere too. For example, they meet for discussing menial shit like "are our company's janitor uniform the right color?" or "should there be one additional light bulb on every desk?" and so on. And these meetings can get dragged on for hours because nobody wants to leave and show they are "lazy" or show that they know more or better than the boss (this is one of the rather small problems of that strict vertical hierarchy). I have relatives that were completely flabbergasted to witness this sort of thing first hand: they were invited to a meeting that took about 2-2 1/2 hours to discuss if the company lunch was good enough or if they should have more variety. Seriously what the fuck!

Republican operative and crypto-kike Dick Morris reports that Donald Trump has ordered that the IRS not enforce the individual mandate and that Trump has changed the rules for health insurance coverage so that insurance companies can offer insurance plans that are much more flexible than what was the case under Obamacare.

In other words, a lot of the coercion of Obamacare has been eliminated by Trump already through the backdoor.

Congress can dillydally all it wants with "repeal and replace,' in fact, the more delay the better if Morris is correct in his analysis.

Here is how FiveThirtyEight reported the Trump executive order on Obamacare when Trump signed it on his first day in office:

As promised, on his first day in office, President Donald Trump took steps to undo the Affordable Care Act, former President Obama’s signature health care law. In one of his first executive orders, Trump pushed the secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal agencies to begin weakening the law. The meaning of the executive order is both subtle and bold; on the one hand, it does very little because it doesn’t grant the administration any powers that it didn’t already have. On the other hand, it signals to the public that change is coming and lets employees at HHS know that they’d better be part of that change.

Section 2 of the order instructs the secretary of HHS to “exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” parts of the law that would place a fiscal burden on states, individuals or health-care providers. Most of the provisions in the ACA can’t just be changed by HHS or the president; they require action from Congress or a lengthy period involving public comment. Which is why it’s reasonable to assume this line is targeted at the things HHS can change, like the individual mandate. The individual mandate, which requires most people to have health insurance or face a tax penalty, has always been the most contentious part of the law…

Let them eat cake



Why are you blaming Trump for this? Again, this has been going on for several decades and so far, everything Trump has been doing with executive orders has been positive. There is no way in hell we will be able to unfuck things the traditional way through the house and senate. Desperate times, desperate measures, etc.



He might have, and he's almost definitely seen some in porn, possibly one tied and bound. The metaphor works.



So let me get this straight….

The past 7 or 8 presidents, likely more than that, have been issuing Executive Orders, most of them draconian and to screw the American people over.

Finally, the people get so pissed they vote in a nationalist, who is actually keeping his promises to restore our sovereignty, our economy and our freedoms…

Now that we finally have a decent president who is working for us who signs Executive Orders (which are benefiting the American people for once!) we need to abolish them all the sudden now!? Suddenly now we need to take away the authority?

Fuck that!

And if another Obama comes in, you really think that would stop him from signing Executive Orders? Not a chance!



What goes around comes around. And Executive Orders have been biting us in the ass 50+ years now. About fucking time they turned against the establishment and bit them in the ass.

I'm enjoying it.

"Nuclear Holocaust Would Be Like No Other" Trump Warns As McCain, Graham Push For War With Russia



While the focus of the majority of reports on President Trump's press conference was on his calling out the mainstream media for reporting fake news, he also made a huge point which largely went un-reported, other than in direct transcripts, because it did not fit the MSM's anti-Russia narrative. Trump said that "There's no upside" to going to war with Russia, or any other nuclear power, stating "nuclear holocaust would be like no other. They're a very powerful nuclear country, and so are we. If we have a good relationship with Russia — believe me — that's a good thing, not a bad thing."

Trump believes, as many Americans do, that finding common ground, common goals, and working towards an amicable relationship with Russia, who happens to be a nuclear power like the U.S., would take us a step further from the "cold war" mentality that has encompassed relations with Russia during Barack Obama's term.

In late December senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, After Trump won the election, took a trip and visited Ukrainian soldiers, where they encouraged more conflict with Russia, and they did so publicly, we have the video!


Before showing their outright push for war, by publicly slamming Russian President Vladimir Putin, stating outright "Our fight is not with the Russian people but with Putin," a quick refresher on events from 2014.

The U.S. encouraged and supported the ousting of Ukrainian president, in fact Obama openly admitted to being behind the ousting of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, stating "we brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine," shown below.

Dick Cheney deliberately allowed hundreds of U.S. soldiers to be poisoned in Iraq, according to stunning revelations made by a former Marine and Army sergeant.

According to Joseph Hickman, almost 1,000 soldiers and local civilians in Iraq were exposed to constant streams of toxic smoke from the practise of burning of waste in dangerous ‘burn pits’.

Dick Cheney’s Halliburton empire operated around 250 burn pits, which contributed to Halliburton’s $40 billion dollar profit during the Iraq war.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: http://archive.is/GdVYI

“Every type of waste imaginable” was burned, including “tires, lithium batteries, asbestos insulation, pesticide containers, Styrofoam, metals, paints, plastic, medical waste and even human corpses.”

This reprehensible practice proves yet again that nothing is sacred when it comes to the military machine.

Just as the U.S. laid waste to Vietnam’s human health and jungle environment with Agent Orange, it wrecked human health and environmental quality in Iraq. That country will suffer from this toxicity for decades, as evidenced by sharp increases in birth defects and cancer and leukemia rates.

Likewise, U.S. veterans and their families are bearing the brunt of this travesty.

“The Burn Pits: The Poisoning of America’s Soldiers” begins with the story of a healthy young soldier sent to Iraq who was constantly exposed to smoke from burn pits. When he returned home with respiratory problems, the Veterans Administration (VA) denied him care, and he later developed brain cancer and died.

Those who do survive are having children with birth defects at a rate three times higher than normal, according to the book. The denial of medical coverage by the VA for burn pit-related illnesses is a central strategy in denying that burn pits even posed a health hazard.

Thomas Mitchell is a school bus mechanic in Clarksville, Tennessee, but he occasionally fills in as a driver.

On his route one day he noticed a 10-year-old girl named Lydia, whose mom was struggling to help her get her wheelchair up and down a ramp outside their home.

“The ramp they were using was like a temporary aluminum ramp, like a folding ramp,” Mitchell told TODAY. “It didn’t go all the way to the top step.”

Mitchell had an idea. He remembered having seen organizations that help people with these types of projects, so he took it upon himself to call a few of them to explain the situation.

Unfortunately, due to tight budgets, a new ramp wasn’t going to be a possibility … not without their help, it seemed. But Mitchell was determined.

“I decided to call Lowe's to see if they would help,” explained Mitchell. “I got to the manager, David Adams … he didn’t even bat an eye, he just asked me to get a list together.”

You mean "no psychopath does this shit for nothing". I know it's hard for yourself to have empathy but most people are capable of imagining themselves in other peoples' positions, particularly when they're experiencing hardship and misfortune, feeling bad for them, and having a desire to help them. They want to make others feel happy when they're in distress because then they'd be happy or else they'd feel guilty about leaving another person in distress without helping him.

Empathy is an evolutionary advantage that we share with other apes and elephants. It reduces attrition and strengthens cohesion within the group.

Psychopaths who expect tangible rewards every time they do somebody a favor as small as getting a beer for somebody are the deviants, not the normal people who want to help others out of the kindness of their hearts.

Although, I can't fault you for assuming that everybody thinks like you: too many people are so solipsistic they can't even consider the possibility that some people are soulless like yourself.



kill yourself



It's not even a human interest story, it's an ad for Lowe's.



and spending an afternoon building a wooden ramp with your friends is a good way to pass time, even if there was no charitable aspect.

For several decades, the UK sent children across the world to new lives in institutions where many were abused and used as forced labour. It's a scandal that is still having repercussions now.

Imagine the 1950s, in the years before air travel became commonplace or the internet dominated our lives. Imagine being a child of those times, barely aware of life even in the next town. An orphan perhaps, living in an British children's home.

Now imagine being told that shortly you would board a ship for somewhere called Australia, to begin a new life in a sunlit wonderland. For good. No choice.

It happened to thousands of British children in the decades immediately following World War Two, and they had little understanding of how it would shape their lives.

The astonishing scandal of the British child migrants will be the first subject for which the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will hold full public hearings. It's first because the migrants are now nearing the end of their lives.

Clifford Walsh stands in the port of Fremantle near Perth in Western Australia.

He is now 72. Fremantle is where, in 1954, aged nine, he stepped off the ship from London, looking for the sheep he'd been told outnumbered people in Australia 100 to one.

He ended up at a place called Bindoon.

The Catholic institution known at one point as Bindoon Boys Town is now notorious. Based around an imposing stone mansion in the Australian countryside, 49 miles north of Perth, are buildings Walsh and his fellow child migrants were forced to build, barefoot, starting work the day after they arrived.

The Christian Brothers ruled the place with the aim of upholding order and a moral code. Within two days of arriving he says he received his first punishment at the hands of one of the brothers.

"He punched us, he kicked us, smashed us in the face, back-handed us and everything, and he then sat us on his knee to tell us that he doesn't like to hurt children, but we had been bad boys.

"I was sobbing uncontrollably for hours."

His story is deeply distressing. He tells it with a particularly AustrPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I always read these stories and think to myself,

>Oh fuck me!! I'm NEVER in the right place in the right time fucking bloody hell….

I was looking into housing or adopting Refugee children for this exact same thing. Nobody would care and it would be 1000x better than living in the shithole they live in now. Tit for Tat

But I just can never get in good places at the right time. I'll hear about a similar story like this in 20 years and fucking hate myself for never finding a good crop of kids to select from

The magazine and model were slammed for the cultural crime of highlighting traditional Japanese clothes.

Last week, Elizabethtown College Democrats handed out white puzzle-piece pins to students as a way to remind them of their “white privilege.” Well, those students ought to send supermodel Karlie Kloss a whole suitcase full of those pins — although after the week she’s had, she probably already feels bad enough about being white.

It all started with Vogue magazine and their recently released March issue, which is dedicated to “diversity.” Inside is a 14-page spread featuring the lovely Karlie Kloss dressed as a geisha, modeling different clothing and costumes representative of traditional Japanese fashion. In one photograph, the delicate, feminine Kloss poses next to a tough, masculine sumo wrestler, and the dichotomy is beautiful. For anyone anywhere who appreciates fashion and photography, the spread was probably viewed as intriguing and inspirational.

Not in America.

Here, Vogue magazine, and Karlie Kloss specifically, were instantly slammed. Twitter lit up with angry accusations of cultural appropriation, insensitivity, and “yellowfacing,” the apparently inexcusable, racist industry practice of letting a white model pose in an Asian role. Writers went wild, calling the images tone-deaf bullsh*t, and multiple publications ran lengthy, rambling editorials explaining why we should all be ripping our hair out over this.

The absurdity was breathtaking. It seems everyone missed or deliberately ignored Vogue’s description of the project’s purpose: to “pay homage to Japan’s geisha culture” and “tap into the country’s time-honored rituals.” How dare they!

Alas, the fury was such that within hours of the magazine’s release, Kloss felt compelled to apologize:

>feminists read fashion mags

Maybe if they read magazines that were more intellectually stimulating they wouldnt be such fucktards.



>the sort of thing that should probably be taught from a relatively young age at school.

It was, at least in my country. Nearly every year in high school we studied examples of moral outrage used as a weapon (The Crucible was the one I remember most). But then we also did mandatory units that I now recognise as having been inoculating us against mind control (studying advertising, media manipulation, political smokescreening, 1984, Brave New World, Wag The Dog and so on), so perhaps our idea of raising citizens is different from your country's.

>Would you say that was more likely to fall into the 'just a meme' category, or might there be something behind it?

This is as old as humanity. Aldous Huxley explains:

>“The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation' — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.”



It's too early in the morning for whiskey, I'll just fantasise about joining a cloistered monastery. That usually helps when I'm reading about these lunatics.

Dating apps such as Tinder are taking away Queensland brothels' "bread and butter" business, a concerned Brisbane brothel licensee says.

The Viper Room licensee Joan Leeds said while she was fortunate to have more than 4000 regular clients, her business was being undercut by the internet through dating sites and apps like Tinder.

"Nobody wants to acknowledge it but it's true," she said.

"You only have to jump on the internet to see what sort of sites are out there.

"If you speak to most people who go onto internet dating sites, it's a hook-up, most of them are expecting sex, that is what happens … Tinder especially."

Ms Leeds, who bought the business in March 2006, claims she has seen no growth in her business for the past four years and suggested there would only be about six out of the 22 licensed brothels operating in Queensland that were making "any real money".

"I would suggest the industry is dying out," she said.

Ms Leeds said she was losing customers who would often frequent brothels over the weekend."These guys used to come into the brothels all the time because they are the people who don't commit to anybody," she said.

>tinder reducing need for brothels

I think I might be using it wrong.


The only problem I have with this is that brothels prices pay for health care (checks for STDs and such). With bitches whoring out on Tinder, they'll want the same care as a gubbermint handout.



It's an old fetish tho



Or you're ugly af anon.
