Josh Rogin of WaPo has weighed in on the hazards of the Kunlun Group out of China, taking over the International Gay Dating App, Grindr.
So anyone who isn’t totally out and proud about being gay, and about every single one of their intimate details shared on Grindr, might have a few extra worries. Expect China to have a bit more influence to obtain personal data, and expect it to be used.
It could be that China just fished thousands of new agents out of the closet in the USA, and maybe even a richer haul from the Middle East.
Your friendly Pharmer been cheering for James Damore since hearing of his dissent at Google, and have high hopes for his future success. He seems independent enough to run his own business.
As you probably have heard, Google booted Mr. Damore, because it is forbidden to believe and profess that men and women are different. Google has become a garbage propaganda machine both on the inside and the outside. People can adapt to this fact with their keyboards and touch screens. When looking for real information, Duck Duck Go is a better choice.
Most curious in her article is the mention that when women enter a field in large numbers, the salary has tended to plummet. In the U.S., this has occurred in the field of pharmacy, and the salary drop is huge. Another contributing factor could be the proliferation of pharmacy schools. However, nursing schools are also proliferating, men are entering the field in large numbers, but those salaries are not dropping.
Companies need to adjust pay for the real biological fact that child bearing and rearing still is women’s work. While guys can and do help with the latter, there simply won’t be enough transsexualism to change the former. Women take six weeks and upwards off of work to have a baby. This means that it costs more to hire women of reproductive age, if the salary is kept equal.
In the U.S., the millennials are beginning to rebel against being told politically correct things that obviously conflict with what they observe. This is an absolutely wonderful trend, to be encouraged at every opportunity.
It’s too obvious that something else inspires them. 29 year old Omar Mateen swore allegiance to ISIS, in a call to 911 before he massacred a large portion of the crowd inside an Orlando gay bar. Prior to this time he had been employed as a security guard at a juvenile detention center. His first wife had accused him of domestic violence, and he had been described as a “known quantity” to the FBI.
Meanwhile another person transporting weapons and explosive substances has been detained in LA. He claimed to have been headed to the Gay Pride Festival in West Hollywood. The name of the second person is being withheld, but it is claimed that the two incidents are not related.
Updates are taking place on Drudge Report and Breitbart websites if immediate and less massaged news coverage is desired. CBS has published that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Gateway Pundit had pointed out that there was chatter from ISIS three days ago, predicting attacks on civilians in Florida.
Prayers for the dead, the injured and those grieving the loss of life at this time. It is hoped that we can formulate a rational response to this act of terrorism, that respects the human right of people to protect themselves from being killed.
That didn’t take long…. China has suspended Apple’s music vid and iBooks. How about that!! Can you guess why? Leftists take heed. China has a strong central government which censors what its people sees. And it doesn’t like the social agenda of the West and what it’s pushing, 24/7. Apple is completely mum about this because we’d all be wondering why they hate the religious freedom states here so much, but put up with China completely suppressing their “rainbow” content. Many of our other multi-national companies are behaving the same way. Western Christians are so much easier to cow than the Chinese, Russians and the Muslims.
The LA Times reported on this event, but naturally had NO CLUE as to what would cause China to shut down most of Apples content service.
One more time, lefties. This is what’s going to happen when you build that utopia of your dreams, with the government controlling everything. There will be a decision that your habits bring about extreme financial burdens, and then………. POOF!
When a guy steps forward, and takes a huge personal and social risk in order to live according to his conscience, he deserves recognition and credit. Joseph Sciambra probably gets death threats since deciding that human life, health, dignity and the Spirit of God is infinitely more important than preference of sex, how much of it, and where to put it.
Your friendly Pharmer has concurred with this conclusion for a very long time, and wants people to live a full life here and beyond. Therefore, Mr. Sciambra gets a boost, prayers and best wishes. Check out what he has to say HERE.
Gloria Steinem as been spotted on CBS This Morning, in full throated whine about the status of Feminism in America, by Jeffrey Meyer of MRC Newsbusters. Most of what is killing the religion of feminism is the “elitist” priesthood of feminazis, who made abortion a major tenet and sacrament, as Mr. Meyer correctly highlights. This group even endorsed sex selective culling of the unborn because of their screed that abortion, regardless of reason, should be legal. (And Gloria wonders why the numbers of women are now less than men.)
Let’s not forget that the industry of selling woman as sex slaves relies on abortion for maintenance of the “product”, and the abortionists readily agreed to provide cover, as they have for domestic abuse.
Is it a coincidence that, in the U.S., the numbers of abortions are dropping as feminism crumbles?
Abortion has also been a large part of what made LIBERAL a dirty word. The other parts are socialism and support for illegal immigration. The leftist Atheists seem unable to understand that they top the radical Islamist list for death, (even above Christians, Jews and Gays). They’re either clueless or suicidal.
The basic problem with feminism and liberalism is that they both are contrary to the survival of humanity as a species.
The cognitive dissonance in Gloria’s mind ought to be deafening by now.
Vance Day, a judge in Marion County Oregon has come under fire for opting to avoid officiating any marriages in order to dodge the conscience problems associated with putting his imprimatur on same sex weddings.
Jonathan J Cooper of AP quotes a gay ‘rights’ activist Jeana Frazzini as follows: “Taking that kind of a step really calls into question how an LGBTQ person could expect to be treated in a court of law, It goes beyond marriage and gets to serious questions about judicial integrity.”
We should remember the reality that the mainline religious groups who ran to the aid of all people suffering from HIV, and who opposed the culture of killing and abusing homosexuals are the same ones who disagree with gay marriage.
Frazzini comes from the same illogical leftist ilk that calls pro lifers terrorists because they oppose killing very young humans.
It is time for the more reasonable of gay people in the U.S. to speak up for the religious groups which have advocated for their basic human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They’ll need to be loud and proud to counter the leftist frauds which pretend to speak for their interests. Who will assist them when the Christians, (who are taught to love all people = sinners) are persecuted, deprived of their jobs, jailed or killed?
Do lefties expect life with with ISIS to be friendlier?
Frazzini apparently is counting on similarly incompetent leftists to provide for her health and well being. A good outcome is not expected.
She has earned the first place Darwin Award this week.
Obama could never have been considered a typical Black American, or even in touch with them. Despite their steadfast support of the first “Black” president, they certainly have not benefited under his rule. Income, home ownership, and employment have decreased more among American Blacks than other demographic group. Probably the only major thing he has done to them is supply government funded IUDs and abortions. He did, however, make a show of pretending that he believed marriage is between a man and a woman while soliciting their votes.
Though the press has sold Obama’s acceptance of gay marriage as an “evolution”, Toledo Municipal Court Judge, C. Allen McConnell, underscores another chasm which exists between Obama and Black Americans. The Judge has refused to personally officiate same sex marriages based upon his Christian beliefs. In the past, Obama had played up to the fact that most Blacks regard homosexual activity as sinful, and this is not limited to U.S.A.. Kenya is among other African nations which are having none of Obama’s more recently outed agenda.
One wonders how many people still believe that Obama has undergone “evolution” on this matter, or whether he is like so many other politicians:
If it’s considered OK to change from one sex identity to another, why are gay activists and their leftist friends fighting to shut down the opportunities for those with unwanted same sex attraction to affirm their desired sexual identity? Does type of coercive behavior identify the activist groups as cults?
Christopher Doyle is a counselor who works to resolves conflicts of sexual identity for individuals and their families. His clinical method is not to push people in a particular direction, but to work with them to achieve their own goals with respect to resolving their sexual identity. This, however, frequently involves helping those who have unwanted same sex attraction to resolve those issues, and become what is called “ex-gay”. His group conforms to the APA standard of treating same sex attraction as a variant of sexuality and not a mental illness. He notes that while his work is acceptable to most LGBT people, the activists vehemently oppose this, and are trying to shut down the availability of such counseling to young people and adults. This has included legislation in some states which forbid the kind of counseling to allow a person to become “ex-gay”.
As the LGBT extremist activists go over the top in trying to silence all who do not agree ethically with such things as same sex marriage, and to ostracize all same sex attracted people who would rather not live a homosexual lifestyle, Christopher Doyle notes that young people are starting to see the activist driven, sexual “equality” movement as false.
While the Shona Banda legal fundraiser remains up (as of 4-28-15) at GoFundMe, the fundraisers for Sweet Cakes and Barronelle Stutzman have been removed.
Shona Banda’s house was raided by cops, after her son made comments in favor of medical marijuana at his school in Kansas. Ms. Banda had moved to the state from Colorado where she had legal access to legal weed, said to be for a health condition. The raid produced some cannabis oil and 2 oz of the weed itself. Her son has been removed from the home, and felony charges are expected.
GoFundMe has given the excuse that the Sweet Cake’s fundraiser was suspended because they have been formally charged with a heinous crime [of not baking a cake for a same sex wedding]. This does not wash since the fundraiser was to benefit the mom and kids who were not present at the time of refusal. It is obvious: GoFundMe will raise legal defense for people found with illegal marijuana in the home, but not for the benefit of the family supported by the Sweet Cakes business, which is charged with not baking a cake for a same sex wedding.
Businesses will have to decide whether it is in their interest to kowtow to the extremists of the “Gaystapo”, or continue having wider access to commerce with the general population. Fundraisers and donors are encouraged to use a different venue until GoFundMe regains realistic business priorities.
