A couple of random thoughts for today…..
If you have ever wondered about something you have seen on the internet (who hasn’t) this is the place to check it out…Hoax or Fact. If you can’t find an answer to your queries there, kick it to me, I’ll check it out.
I don’t know if you have heard, the DoD is thinking about cutting the danger pay ($225 per month) of approximately 56,000 troops serving in the middle east, saving the pentagon and the taxpayer $120 million. I’m thinking if Homeland Security sold some of those 1700 MRAPs (each costing $200,000+ each, not including upkeep, which is expensive, at a savings of $340 million). I don’t see much of a reason for DHS to have MRAPs anyway, being there is no threat of IEDs or mines here in America. Or we could just cut Congressional staff. Or even better cut both. 😀
Why is the press silent on China’s colonization of Africa? 750,000 Chinese already reside in Africa, with more arriving each day, there are Chinese only cafes, restaurants, resorts, and walled enclaves, much like…..colonial era Africa. Billions of dollars from China have already poured into the coffers of such cruel dictators like Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe and Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir, keeping them in power (and keeping their boys in weapons), much to the chagrin of the oppressed people suffering in silence there. So while here in the West ‘enlightened intellectuals’ bemoan the horrid effects of colonialism half a century after its end, they while remain deadly silent on the ongoing Chinese colonialism and the whole sale selling of Africa by corrupt politicians.
So that is all for today, have a good day, Be Safe, and take care of each other.
