    The senate ok’d a bill allowing your internet provider to sell your internet search data to other businesses. Ought to be a gold mine for insurance companies, banks, and any other bunch of hucksters who want to make a buck off your private life.

    Grassley and Ernst of course voted yes. Will they make their browsing data public? I’ll wait.

    Reported on Fox news this morning:

    Republicans in Congress are delaying a decision on President Trump’s request for $1.5 billion this year to begin construction on a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Republicans say that the money needed for the project would likely not be in a spending bill that must pass next month to avoid a government shutdown.

    You been Trumped again!

          Classic enslavement ponzi scheme. 1. Enslave large group of humans in artificial debt, false work situation. 2. Get them irritated, dependent, obedient, and occupied. 3. Turn them against those who aren’t enslaved and overworked. 4. Stun the intellectual growth of humanity and continue down the path of totalitarianism, autocracy, authoritarianism, and general enslavement. The more people are overworked the more apt they are to buy junkfood from Kum and Go, eat fast food during lunch hour, and generally abandon their healthy pursuits and intellectual advancement. Welcome to Corporate ponzi scheme America. Btw…I’m employed full time, and I am a full time student getting a 4.00 GPA. What are you doing with YOUR LIFE?

            I mean look at what some of these so-called “jobs” are. Selling credit cards and other shit you don’t need, which further enslaves you to corporate financial sectors. You know how many call centers are out there calling people trying to get them signed up for this or that? They pay their workers basic slave wages to keep a roof over their head, and give them some gas in their cars to get to work…but the job itself isn’t doing a F-in thing to advance humanity. It’s nothing but slavery, and many of you are caught up in it. You act as Prison Yard Bullies picking your noses, and wiping it in the the peas of the non-conformed. You serve the masters by honing in on those who ain’t working for the boss. You are the definition of “Brown Shirt”.

            Once those businessman ponzi scheme hucksters figured out the collision that exists between the American political structure and business, they turned their sights on crowdsourcing, and mass numbers to achieve their elitist objectives. To them it’s all a numbers game, and individual humans are nothing but point sources of 1. NEED 2. CONSUMPTION 3. PRODUCTION 4. INTERFERENCE. As Mitch McConnell and other douche bag politicians like him have done nothing to legislate in a harmonious progressive way, they leave us to fend off the wolves, or become a wolf ourselves. The payout? For the “Right” to call yourself an American, as if that F-in matters in the larger scheme of things. Patriotism is their communion wafer they offer the regular church attendees. Tithing is your taxes.

          The only way I would freeze to death is if land was deprived from me by Sheriff deputies who side with real estate organizations. The same real estate organizations who mass hypnotized humans into relinquishing their rights to land, so that construction companies like Henkel can come in with their large power tools and construct housing units, so all the slaves can be housed as they work for the local industrial tycoons. Giving out free land is the same as giving out free dignity and free liberty. The LAST THING any rulers want to do for their people. The Constitution is an incomplete document, and America is an enslaved nation…not a free one.

      Perhaps an exhumation and DNA test are in order? Perhaps Tolling and Discovery need to kick in? Good point. How do I have an interest in that child? Perhaps an interest needs to be created by DNA testing. Thanks so much mi amigo.

      Pray for the financially enslaved, intellectually starved, and nutritionally poisoned. Pray for those mentally such a degree bodily illness occurs with dissent. Pray we break the enslavement gene-implanted into us since birth. Pray God the Tyrant (human inflicted mass delusion) is lifted from our minds. Pray the end of suffering. Pray for the LAST BOWEL MOVEMENT…that glorious day when your intestines are sparkling clear never again to be populated. Pray for the end of the bolus (which inevitably becomes the turd. Pray for crisp white sheets, and tight white undergarments. Pray man will no longer use money to communicate.

    Here we go again! Seriously Matt. The village idiot from Clear Lake is at it again. Get this joker off your site for good. Really really tired of hearing about his dead baby. And Pee pee….you are just as guilty of what happened to that child. You weren’t part of the child’s life because drugs were more important
    So. Enough already. Stop crying for sympathy.

    It’s still March 26, and a helpless child was born 25 years ago. But that child was murdered by a local Mason City person who escaped justice. The mother is still just as deranged as she’s always been, and the man still has never confessed to what he did. He’ll be confessing when he meets his maker though…that’s for sure. God has a way of SMACKING you around.

        March 29, 2017 at 8:24 pm

        You gotta point there John. But if God did exist, and he / it existed in the way traditional Bibles depict, then that guy for murdering a defenseless baby should be facing hellfire. But the Bible itself is so full of contradictory situations that who knows. Is God a perfect justice God? Wraithful? Rewards the Strong? Darwinian? No one knows what that schizophrenic god of the Bible is because man’s attributions to him / it are bullpuckey. But if there is some form of “thou shall not kill”, then old babykiller presumably will be facing an ass whooping post mortem. Hopefully the demons will tear him apart, and he’ll be so scared and helpless that his torture will go on for thousands of years. I wouldn’t want it an eternity, but just enough to teach that POS his lesson.
