Frenetic Friday


It’s late, really late, it’s been delayed by one thing or another but no more excuses Frenetic Friday is back!

So let’s talk politics. Wait I know what your thinking, politics have been all you’ve heard since the end of the election. Well let’s see if we can change it up a bit. Besides we have a Robotic Over Lord a little bit later that is long over due.

So the electorial college. Why is it that every time that someone wins by the electoral vote but not the popular vote they immediately call for the end of the electoral college? You know there is a specific reason the founders of this country choose to create this institution and I think this explains it the best.

Also take a read of this article in the Washington Post by Allen Gulezo and James Hulme: In Defense of the electoral college

So have you heard of the “safety-pin movement”?  In short this little bit of social activism says that by fastening a safety-pin to an article of clothing it is telling the “maligned, threatened or intimidated” people that they, the safety-pin wearers are safe and that they are not people supported President-elect Trump. A few of my close friends refer to this as the diaper pin wearing group. And i will admit that has merit but another friend of mine came up with this pin:
Hand Grenade Safety Pin
Yes that is the safety-pin from a hand grenade. And frankly if we are going to be pinning safety pins to our clothing I think that is a better pin than one made for holding a diaper together.

Ok you wanted it, you have asked for it, it is time for the Robotic Over Lords!
And remember I welcome our new Over Lords.

So did you notice that all over the country they were raising minimum wage? What has this to do with robots? Funny you should ask. Because of rising wages and that the big golden arches are losing money they have embraced a new technology the automatic kiosk.

And while we are at it welcome to the new robot burger chef:

Sure there will still be a minimal crew to make sure the robots are working correctly and to clean up and put the money away but as the robots get more efficient stores that would have employed say ten people or more will only need two at the most.
And don’t think that MacDonald’s is the only one getting onto this gig. Behold the Froyo frozen yogurt robot!

That is right you punch in what you want feed it money and the robotic arms make it for you.
Franchises opening as we speak.
For this next one the kids will need to leave the room.

So in the book That Hideous Strength by C. S. Lewis there was a paragraph that always stuck out to me.

Ransom replied, “Sulva is she whom mortals call the Moon. She walks in the lowest sphere. The rim of the world that was wasted goes through her. Half of her orb is turned toward us and shares our curse. Her other half looks to Deep Heaven; happy would be he who could cross that frontier and see the fields on her further side. On this side, the womb is barren and the marriages are cold. There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust. There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place

That phrase “a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts” is by devilish arts coming true. The Daily Mail is predicting that by 2017 we will have actual Sex Bots with warm genitalia orifices and that talk and respond to touch. They will be configured to whatever the customer desires no matter how depraved. And that is all for the Robotic Over Lords.

And let me leave you with this from our weird and wonderful basket. Are you tired of people being behind you and flashing their high beams? Well someone in China has invented a stick that shows a ghostly image or words if you wish when illuminated by high beams. The idea is to scare the other driver and make them turn off their beam. However Chinese police say if an accident is caused by this then the owner of the sticker will be fined.

And it is Monday…


Prager U is reporting that YouTube in it’s infinite wisdom is limiting access to 21 videos that YouTube has deemed contain harmful, or dangerous activities.  (It also restricts those with vulgar language, violence and disturbing imagery, nudity and sexually suggestive content.)  I have seen most if not all of the videos and you should too so without further ado here is the list:

1. Are The Police Racist?
This video explores the debate that the police are targeting African-American communities.

2. Why Don’t Feminists Fight for Muslim Women?
Why do feminists claim to be champions of women’s rights everywhere, but do not fight for women facing oppression in Muslim countries? This video attempts to answer that question.

3. Why Did America Fight the Korean War?
Due to just slashing its military budget, why did America choose to get involved in this fight?

4. Who’s More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?
This video examines the fact that western Europeans are much more conservative about abortion than American progressives.

5. What ISIS Wants
What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from? What does it want? This video examines all these questions and more.

6. Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees?
Israel is a nation of refugees, and especially refugees from Arab countries. This video examines why.

7. Are 1 in 5 Women Raped at College?
According to many gender activists, academics, and politicians, college campuses can be promoters of a “rape culture.”

8. Islamic Terror: What Muslim Americans Can Do
This video examines how American Muslims can lead a winning fight toward radical Islam.

9. Did Bush Lie About Iraq?
This video clarifies the belief that President George W. Bush lied his way into the war in Iraq.

10. Who NOT to Vote For
Without naming parties or names, this video talks about what one should keep in mind when heading to the ballot box.

11. Do Not Murder
Out of all the 10 Commandments, one would think that “do not murder” would be the most self-explanatory of all. PragerU President Dennis Prager examines why this is not the case.

12. Is America Racist?
This video discusses President Barack Obama’s claim that “racism is in our DNA.”

13. Israel: The World’s Most Moral Army
Is the Israeli military “a paragon of morality and wartime ethics” or “an oppressive force that targets innocent Palestinian civilians and commits war crimes as a matter of policy?” Col. Richard Kemp, a commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, answers this question.

14. Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology
In the earlier part of the 20th century, the answer to this question was fascism. Raymond Ibrahim, author of “The Al Qaeda Reader,” examines why the answer to this question today is radical Islam.

15. The Most Important Question About Abortion
Dennis Prager, president of PragerU, discusses the most critical question of this debate.

16. Why Do People Become Islamic Extremists?
This video examines what drives a person to become an Islamic extremist and even a suicide bomber.

17. Don’t Judge Blacks Differently
How come the election of this nation’s first African-American president did not usher in a “new era of racial harmony”? This video examines why.

18. What is the University Diversity Scam?
Are colleges places of “racism, sexism, and homophobia?” This video talks about why some believe this to be college culture today.

19. He Wants You
This video discusses the differences between how men and women perceive each other.

20. Israel’s Legal Founding
When Israel was founded in 1948, it was approved by the United Nations. With this being the case, why do Israel’s enemies relentlessly attack this nation’s existence?

21. Pakistan: Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?
Is is possible for freedom to coexist in a country based on “religious Sharia Islamic law?”

Frenetic Friday


Star date 11609.09 we are in orbit around an M class planet that is third from its sun.  While doing a standard sensor scan we have discovered that it is Frenetic Friday!

Well if you’ve been on the Internet at all you’ve probably heard about Evan Hempel a “transgendered man”  who decided that she would do what any woman would do and that is get pregnant and have a baby.  And then Time Magazine decided to do an article about her breast feeding.  But of course they said “he was breastfeeding” frankly this came to mind.

But see that is exactly what is wrong it isn’t a man breastfeeding it is a woman breastfeeding.  And even if they are taking artificial hormones in order to give them beards, which by the way they have to stop if they are going to get pregnant, they are still female and a female breastfeeding a baby isn’t something new at all.

So at a certain point in the history of the United States Black Americans rose up to protest the segregation that was going on in the country.  You would see signs saying that how some places, bathrooms, diners, water fountains were for “whites” only and there were other signs that said “colored” only.  But men and women rose up and said that segregation was evil and that there can’t be a “white” or “colored” only place.   Now more that fifty years after the fight to end segregation comes this from the California State University Los Angles that to combat micro-agression from whites the black students will have segregated housing.  <source>  Next Jim Crow laws will be repealed.

And now a moment of feminist singing with the Hills Are Alive with the sound of Feminism.

And now a moment of truth.

And now good evening.

 

 

Frenetic Friday


From the eighty-sixth floor of the Empire State building the man of bronze’s golden eyes widened, turning to his five companions he said: “It’s Frenetic Friday!”

Sometimes I think that it is all a great conspiracy.  Take for instance this:

This is a picture from Babylon Bee where they satirically write that Elevation Church is putting in water slides to speed up baptisms.
Then Snopes that bastion of truth and internet debunking chimes in with a post about Babylon Bee and how it is a satire website and no Elevation Church isn’t really putting in a water slide.

Then there is this:.

Yep there it is they are getting baptized by going down a water slide.  Folks I can’t make this stuff up,

From there let’s go to Portland Oregon.  In specific let’s go to Pips Original Doughnuts and Chai where they have advertised for help with one proviso if you are vegan or vegetarian you need not apply.  Here is the ad they placed in the paper:

BASIC requirements: ( PLEASE DO NOT APPLY unless you meet or exceed 1-6)
1. You love serving people and have a friendly, outgoing personality but understand
 when to be chatty and when to move the line along. -We don’t need another moody 
hipster providing lame service in Portland.
2. One year experience working quickly and accurately in a fast-paced food service job.
3. Basic barista skills: Steaming milk & pouring a basic heart. IF you show promise and
 meet or exceed all other requirements and we think you are a good fit, we will help
 refine your skills.
4. Stamina, strength & endurance. It can be very busy and you must be able to lift at 
least 50 lbs on a regular basis.
5. Enjoy working in a fast-paced, multifaceted, & dynamic environment with a tight team.
6. No non-medical, non-religious dietary restrictions that would stop you from
 tasting, accurately representing our food and maintaining quality control to 
maintain the highest standards of food safety and excellence. We serve products 
with meat ( including bacon) nuts, diary and our doughnuts contain wheat gluten.

 

Yep it is number six that has raised the ire of the vegans and vegetarians in Portland.  And boy howdy they are out for um wheat grass?  But the owners are standing firm or as they put it how can you tell if the quality of the product is good if you can’t eat the product?  I just wonder how long it is going to be before the tolerance police close them down.  But wait I forgot they’re not a Christian baker.  <source>

Now to our neighbors up in the north from the Daily Wire is a report that the University of Toronto is suspending temporarily the transgender bathroom policy they enacted because of  two separate instances where males (Oh no he is using binary based nouns!) were caught holding there cell phones over the female students shower stalls and taking pictures.  Something I could have told them was going to happen but they didn’t consult me at the time.  In the mean time the University has designated some bathrooms only for males, some only for females and some gender neutral.

Here are two of the student’s responses to the change:

One freshman told the paper that the issue “is not strictly about someone taking pictures; it is about a violation of the trust that our residence experience is based on.”

Another student told the paper that she was “disappointed” that the incident happened. “I have more faith in people than that,” she said. <source>

You know speaking of perverted things this popped up in my news alerts and I was so gob smacked by it that I had to share with you:

A US court has ruled it is legal to film up a woman’s skirt without consent due to a “gap” in the law surrounding invasion of privacy.

Brandon Lee Gary was prosecuted in 2013 on a single count of “unlawful eavesdropping and surveillance” after he was witnessed several times on CCTV footage taking video recordings with a mobile phone beneath the skirt of a customer while she was shopping.

Gary, who was employed by the supermarket when the filming occurred, admitted to the charge at a trial in Houston County Superior court where he was found guilty.

A spilt ruling at Georgia’s Court of Appeal on 15 July reversed the invasion of privacy conviction against a Gary, after he appealed on the basis that he did not violate state law as it is written,

In Court of Appeal documents published by US news site Patch, Judge Elizabeth Branch writes: “The question before this court, however is not whether the defendant’s conduct was offensive; it is not whether a person walking in a public place has a reasonable expectation of privacy as to certain areas of her body; and it is not whether the victim’s privacy was violated.

“Rather, the only issue presented by this appeal is whether the defendant’ s conduct constitutes a criminal invasion of privacy…”

“[I]t is regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct,” she writes.

“Unfortunately, there is a gap in Georgia’s criminal statutory scheme, in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology.” <source>

Frankly I think the Georgia legislators had best be getting their work done and close that gap.

And last but not least a little something from Prager U:

Good Night!

The Five Day Post


And now the post that has taken five days to write.  As I was looking at my various news feeds I was wondering what should make the cut.  Not much in Robotic Over Lords, there was some news on the Pro-life front and then I saw it.  Something that coincided with the 240th celebration of the independence of the USA.  What you may ask?  And even if you don’t ask, well let me point you to a few news items first.

Item 1.

Supreme Court won’t hear challenge to rule that pharmacies dispense emergency contraception

Item 2.

U.S. District Judge strikes down Mississippi’s religious freedom law.

Item 3.

Christian Mingle Opens Doors to Gay Singles Under Settlement.

Item 4.

California Bill protects LGBQT students by limiting the Faith of Universities

Are you seeing a pattern here?  If I am being obtuse let me spell it out for you.  Each of these cases has to do will religious freedom, in particular the right of persons to behave or operate a business under their belief system.

In Item 1 Christian pharmacists because they view plan B morning after pills  as an abortifacient and do not want to dispense the drug.  But are compelled by Washington State law to do so.  They filed suit claiming that the law put undo burden upon religious objectors.  The Supreme Court declined to hear the case.

At issue are Washington State regulations that are likely to make a pharmacist unemployable if he or she objects on religious grounds to dispensing certain prescription medications,” argued Justice Alito

“Yet the Ninth Circuit held that the regulations do not violate the First Amendment, and this Court does not deem the case worthy of our time. If this is a sign of how religious liberty
claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern.”

Item 2 A district judge struck down a religious liberty law based upon other religious freedom laws and the federal religious freedom law.  The judge claims that “The State has put its thumb on the scale to favor some religious beliefs over others. Showing such favor tells ‘nonadherents that they are outsiders, not full members of the political community, and . . . adherents that they are insiders, favored members of the political community,’ ” Reeves wrote, citing precedent. “And the Equal Protection Clause is violated by HB 1523’s authorization of arbitrary discrimination against lesbian, gay, transgender, and unmarried persons.”

Item 3 Christian Mingle a dating site that specified  whether you were a man seeking a woman or a woman seeking a man was sued by two gay men under California’s anti-discrimination law saying that the limited options violated the Unruh Civil Rights Act.  Because of the suit Christian Mingle has changed it’s policy to allow same sex users.

Item 4  California Senate Bill 1146 would prohibit any faith based policies from religious schools that take any state assistance and “discriminate” against LGBT persons.

“State assistance” includes any participation in the Cal Grants or Pell Grants programs, which provide critical financial assistance to lower-income students.

This means that a Catholic school that receives state aid can be sued for refusing to hire a non-Catholic applicant to serve as its president.  It means an Adventist school can be sued for refusing to hire a professor living in a gay marriage.  It means a Baptist school can be sued for refusing to allow a male student who “identifies” as a woman to live in a women’s dormitory, or to use women’s restrooms and showers.
The intent of this bill is transparent: to target Christian schools that maintain Biblical beliefs on marriage and sexuality, and to use the threat of losing government funds to force them to change those beliefs.  It puts schools into a terrible predicament.  If they maintain their beliefs, their prospective students will not be eligible for Cal Grants or Pell Grants, and the schools will suffer significant financial loss.  If they give in to this requirement, they compromise their core principles.

Do you see the pattern?  Can you see what we are losing here?  Do you understand that for the opposition it is a take no prisoner situation?  No matter who wins the presidency we can no longer depend on the courts to protect our rights that is no longer an option as they don’t rule based upon actual constitutional law rather they are an oligarchy of ideologues that rule based upon social theory.

Good Night.

Frenetic Friday


Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Frenetic Friday knows.

A 200 non points if you recognize the quote.

Speaking of pop culture couple of things to note.  There is a movement on Twitter to give Captain America a boyfriend.  Yes folks the social justice warriors are at it again, a hero from the 1940’s they feel needs to be made gay.  But I really shouldn’t be surprised since it was done once before on the other side.  Yes DC took the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, and to make him “current” made him gay.  Yes he too was a hero who had his origins in 1940.  But you know that appears to be the thing now heroes can’t be heroes any more take the current storyline for Captain America its been revealed that he is actually an agent of Hydra.  Hydra, the more Nazi than Nazi group created and led by the Red Skull, the group that Captain America originally fought and destroyed in WWII he is actually a member of Hydra.  BTW here is what Chris Evans the actor that played Captain America said:

Frankly that is the response of the 90% of the people who hear that.

Let me point you to this article over at the Federalist:  We Must Not Rest Until Every Superhero is Gay

And while we are at it let’s go to my favorite law group the ACLU.  Brigitte Amiri writing on the ACLU’s blog tells of a scenario where a bleeding pregnant woman goes into a Catholic run hospital and according to her is denied an abortion and instead left out in the parking lot bleeding until someone drives her to another hospital where the abortion is performed.  Because of this, and because of the policy of the Catholic run hospitals not to do abortions she wants the records of the hospitals seized by the government and investigated for more of these cases. Except what she is writing about isn’t the truth.

See the scenario described is where a pregnancy complications endanger both the mother and the child.  A situation that is extremely rare.  Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life obstetrician and Gynecologists says this:

The purpose of an elective abortion is to guarantee a dead baby. The purpose of separating the mother and the fetus in life threatening conditions is to try to save both the mother and her unborn child if possible, but at least save the mother. The ACLU is playing on the ignorance of what abortion actually is: a procedure designed to produce a dead baby.

Whoops!  Yes can’t have that whole saving the baby along with the mother somebody has to die and that somebody has to be the baby it seems.

And last two videos about college kids and how they say the darndest things.

Remember you’re paying for this education.

Frenetic Friday


This is going to be a short but pithy Frenetic Friday tonight so let’s not waste a minute.

In politics/culture wars we have a new decree directive from our current ruler:

The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

Let me quote Denny Burk here:

Just to be clear what this means. The Obama administration is announcing its intent to coerce through force of law every public school to accept this. He expects your local school to allow boys to use bathroom and shower facilities with girls and vice versa. So long as the child’s parents are willing to go along with their child’s new identity, the school has to let students into the bathroom and locker room of the opposite sex

This directive is jaw-dropping. The Obama administration doesn’t care whether the local or state school system supports such a move. It doesn’t care whether parents want male students showering with the female students or vice versa. President Obama’s letter…

…requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.

The Obama administration is saying that every public school must accept the new rules or face the music. It has decided that anyone (even parents!) who refuses the new rules will be guilty of invidious “discrimination.”<source>

This decree directive effectively bypasses any rule of law that originated in the constitution or what our founders intended.  And frankly I doubt greatly that our founders wanted was for gender disillusioned men to share a public bathroom with a woman.

And here is something to think about:

pottyfreedomHT: R.C. Sproul Jr.

Think about it.

And speaking of Politics here is a piece by Thabiti Anyabwile:

A vote to check unpredictable evil with predictable

I disagree with his conclusions but I suggest you read the article and make up your own mind.

And now for a little humor.

Meet the president-dictator of a micro-nation inside the United States

I love what he said about taxes and the roads.

And now a robot:

Now here is what I am afraid of some televangelist hustler is going to see this and think hey what a great idea I can get the faithful to buy one of these and I’ll program it with my teaching.  Can’t you just see this robot in a Benny Hinn silver suit?
