How Did We Survive?

So true it hurts

My mum used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread butter on bread on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn’t seem to get food poisoning.

Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can’t remember getting e. Coli.

Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake or at the beach instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

We all took Phys Ed ….. And risked permanent injury with a pair of plimsolls instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors that cost as much as a small car. I can’t recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.

We got the strap for doing…

Destroy The Old World, Build The New World

“Destroy The Old World, Build The New World” That’s what it says on this poster from China’s Cultural Revolution. Compare and contrast with what the current resident of the White House claimed he would begin upon election in 2008: the fundamental transformation of this country.

“Where has Kirk been?” you might be wondering. My last post was in November of last year. I’ve had nothing constructive to say since then. I figured I’d break my silence with a few lessons from history since this is, after all, the blog about historical rhymes.

If you’ve been paying attention to current events, you are aware that our own Cultural Revolution has begun in this country. And you are on one side or the other even if you haven’t picked a side! This isn’t a revolution about thoughts, or ideas, or even philosophies. This is a revolution about identity. You see, if…

Oh Really?

From time to time I come across a timely bit of information. Timely in the sense that it bears on a contemporary topic of interest, and perhaps even reminds us of the kind of universal truths about human nature we are prone to forget or more or less purposely overlook. Like this one, via Hot air:

41.7% of all Federal criminal charges come from 5 districts that are on the US southern border.  In one district, West Texas, the US attorney filed 5,832 cases.  That’s more than all the cases filed for the entire length of the US norther border (5,257).  The southern district of Texas ranked 2nd, followed by Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California.

And that’s not all:

Hot or Not? All you need to know about global warming.

Originally posted on On my way to...:

For nearly three decades now, climate change has been a hot topic of an ongoing public debate. The debate itself evolved, starting with cries of imminent doom for all mankind in the late 1980’s, through tales of unprecedented, unforeseeable, and unstoppable wild weather incidents (storms, tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.) at the turn of the centuries, to be finally hushed by a global economy crisis of 2008, when humanity discovered other threats to its well-being. With the crisis more or less over, the climate change debate reemerged in a more civilised form of real scientific arguments and long-term government policies, ceasing to be merely a popular bandwagon of easy publicity for celebrities and a lucrative fundraiser for numerous NGOs.

Being 35, I am a representative of the first “ecologically conscious” generation. Regardless of our personal viewpoint of the matter, either demonising or dismissing the human impact on the long-term, global climate processes…

Destroying America 101: The Blueprint Exists

Originally posted on wchildblog:

Source: Freedom Outpost, by Susan Harris

I believe there is a plan for destroying America, that it exists on paper, and that thousands of people are involved in executing it. Many are doing it knowingly, some are being used as pawns, and others are being bribed for their silence. It’s based on greed, built on power, and fueled with hate. And it’s the biggest, damn conspiracy in the history of the world.

Watching events unfold in America and around the globe since 2008, it is undeniable that this blueprint for destruction was readied to hit the ground running as soon as Obama took office. It’s dependent upon disruptive ideologies, social science, and metrics. It’s Saul Alinsky on steroids.

Yes there were many factors in place prior to Obama taking office – systemic brainwashing in academia, United Nations tentacles reaching into small-town America etc. But the election of 2008 was…

Why College Professors Are Afraid to Teach Millennials

The relationship between students and teachers has changed, he says, thanks to the same hypersensitivity that Academia uses to silence dissent and debate. “The student-teacher dynamic has been reenvisioned along a line that’s simultaneously consumerist and hyper-protective,” Schlosser writes, “giving each and every student the ability to claim Grievous Harm in nearly any circumstance, after any affront, and a teacher’s formal ability to respond to these claims is limited at best.”

In the past, students complaints focused on actual teaching or bias in the classroom, issues which deal with the teacher’s actions and can at least form the basis of coherent criticism of behavior or teaching methods. Now, Schlosser knows that complaints can have little to with objective reality but with how the student perceives it.

He worries that an accusation will involve a lack of sensitivity to one individual’s “feelings,” or…

Protect Yourself From Facebook Scams

Originally posted on Peace and Freedom:

Each day, Facebook users click the “Like” button about 3.2 billion times.  And cybercrooks love that. Increasingly, they’re using the upward thumb as bait in some of the most common scams on the huge social network.

These include postings by false friends who seek money by claiming they’re stranded overseas, bogus account verification notices and cancellation warnings supposedly coming from Facebook (just like phony notices from your bank).

Protect yourself from scams on Facebook - Facebook Like Button on an iPhone4

“There are two goals in most social media scams: to spread quickly and to make money,” says Gerry Egan of Norton online security products, who recently conducted a study of Facebook scams. With those billions of clicks per day, Like buttons help achieve that prompt and widespread propagation, particularly as Facebook users get wise to traditional social media scams.

In reviewing the current top Facebook scams, Norton experts detected 8.5 million attacks against customers using its software…
