Effects of tv on the brain

Watching TV is something which virtually everyone does, but did you know that TV can actually be harmful for you? Television viewing can for example, increase your risk of premature death, reduce your level of intelligence, completely obliterate your ability to concentrate, physically impair the growing child brain and increase your risk of developing neurodegenerative brain disorders.

I have a background in biology, psychology and business and have been interested in the effects of TV on the brain for the past several years. Like many people, I was shocked to find that something which I had previously considered to be an innocent past time, actually posed a real threat to my physical and mental well-being.

Socialist Party Demanding $20 Minimum Wage Insists It Should Not Be Subject To $20 Minimum Wage

The socialist party in Seattle that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour but advertised a job last week for an experienced web developer paying just $13 per hour is now defending itself. [...]

The argument from the Freedom Socialist Party is that it cannot afford the minimum wage it seeks to impose on every commercial entity in America.

Are you even surprised? Vote for Republican and Machine switches vote "Calibration ERROR"

It does not phase me a bit to read this article. Can you believe it again. I am sorry folks, but it should be paper ballots or NOTHING. And everyone should be required to show REAL identification. I agree with the use of a computer system to track people who voted, and check their ID, and then cross referance if thye have voted in the correct place and if they have voted yet. That is what a good computer system is for. But when it comes to casting a vote. A BLACK PEN and a piece of paper is the only way. And when they are counted...it should be video taped, and for all to see.

Life hurts

First I am sorry for this post, I needed to get this off my chest and didn't know of another place where I am anonymous enough to not warrant friends and family trying to talk. Sometimes strangers are more comforting. So thank you ahead of time for being the people that I feel comfortable talking to.

Life is hard, life moves fast, life doesn't take prisoners. It is cold, calculating and knows no mercy. It is nothing but a set of events that happen because of choices you make. Recompense must be paid, your ledger must be balanced and karma really is a bitch.

As my marriage is breaking up, and my wife is moving on and out... I find myself becoming more reflective. Who knew, that for someone who thought they were preparing for the end of the world, matters of the heart were just as bad if not worse than a collapse of society. That there really are no guards, or protections that seem to fit the situation. Those amazing highs when falling in love, getting married, having children, and just being around your soulmate are such a double edged sword... for when that one decides its time, it makes the lows seem all the worse.

The Enemy

The Enemy

He tossed and turned again that night,
Up as usual before the light,
I saw him sitting at his place,
A troubled look on his face,
A quiet man and often grim,
And again that look came over him,
But one morning at the break of day,
He said the things he had to say.

Son, I thought it was all worth fighting for,
But I’m not so sure anymore,
And all that stuff about country and glory,
Well, now I sort of doubt that story,
But what bothers me so unbearably,
Is the one they called the enemy.

He was just a young man like me,
The one they called the enemy,

In 2024: James Rickards describes a fictional account of the world's monetary future

Between 2018–20, the Group of 20 major powers, the G-20, abolished all currencies except for the dollar, the euro and the ruasia. The dollar became the local currency in North and South America. Europe, Africa and Australia used the euro. The ruasia was the only new currency — a combination of the old Russian ruble, Chinese yuan and Japanese yen — and was adopted as the local currency in Asia.

There is also new world money called special drawing rights, or SDRs for short. They’re used only for settlements between countries, however. Everyday citizens use the dollar, euro or ruasia for daily transactions. The SDR is also used to set energy prices and as a benchmark for the value of the three local currencies. The World Central Bank, formerly the IMF, administers the SDR system under the direction of the G-20. As a result of the fixed exchange rates, there’s no currency trading.

All of the gold in the world was confiscated in 2020 and placed in a nuclear bomb-proof vault dug into the Swiss Alps. The mountain vault had been vacated by the Swiss army and made available to the World Central Bank for this purpose. All G-20 nations contributed their national gold to the vault. All private gold was forcibly confiscated and added to the Swiss vault as well. All gold mining had been nationalized and suspended on environmental grounds.

Michigan governor (R) signs protectionist bill favoring GM, banning direct Tesla sales in state

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law a bill that reinforces laws against the direct-sales model that Tesla Motors employs, effectively barring the automaker from selling its wares in the state.

According to the letter sent to legislators from Snyder's office announcing the signing of Public Act 354:

This bill does not, as some have claimed, prevent auto manufacturers from selling automobiles directly to consumers at realign in Michigan. That is because this is already prohibited under Michigan law. The current law states that a manufacturer shall not "[s]ell new motor vehicle directly to a retail customer other than through its franchised dealers…"

The current language states plainly that a manufacturer can only sell new vehicles to consumers through its own network of franchised dealers. House Bill 5606 detest the word "its" from this sentence. This change would appear merely to allow manufacturers who do not have their own franchised dealers to sell through another manufactuerer's [sic] network of franchised dealers. But in any event they will be required, just as they are now, to sell through a franchised dealer, and not directly to consumers. House Bill 5606 does nothing to change this fact. At most, it clarifies the existing requirement in Michigan law.

Republican candidate tries to vote for himself, electronic machine casts vote for his opponent instead

"Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead."

Full story:

If anyone really believes elections in the United States are truly legitimate, they must be willfully ignorant. I guess it makes people feel good thinking that they have fair election processes.

Tennessee Woman Sentenced To Jail For Not Mowing Her Lawn

The trend of average U.S. citizens being incarcerated by overzealous judges and prosecutors within the police state formerly known as America continues with reckless abandon. In fact, these sorts of cases are becoming so commonplace I simply cannot keep up with all of them. The following story is a perfect followup to my piece earlier today, which shows how American public school students are being arrested or harassed by police for the most minor of infractions, such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.
