Since public mass shootings were introduced to the general American population in 1999 with the Columbine High School Massacre, they have seen a steady increase in frequency. And while the media will talk about everything from gun reform, to school safety measures, almost no one wants to touch the elephant in the room. Mental health problems.
The Libertarian party has been unusually quite as A.I has become more and more popular. Individual minds within the liberty movement are divided by the polarizing topic. But where does artificial intelligence fall inline with the consistent principles of freedom.
A $1.3 trillion dollar spending bill is the kind of thing that gives Libertarians nightmares. Factor in that only covers the next 6 months and some may have a heart attack. All of this before even looking at whats in it. And the deeper you go, the worse it gets.
After a round of steel and aluminum tariffs that were a clear shot at China with almost every other major exporter nation being protected by immunity rocked the markets, President Trump doesn't seem done pounding them with export fees. Recently announced technology tariffs are another direct shot at our number one threat to our seat as the number one economy the world.
This will be less of a criticism of the actual contents of the massive 2000 plus page spending bill for the next 6 months, but more about the general downfalls with signing a $1.3 trillion dollar bill that large. There are so many things wrong simply with the idea of a bill that large passing that quickly that it deserves its own dedicated article.
While many in the Libertarian Party saw the 3.28% of votes 2016 Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson's a major victory. However another sector of the LP saw this as yet another fumble of time, money, and efforts. Libertarians have continued to ignore local infrastructure and aim for the biggest seat around, the presidency.
Internet companies censoring political oppositions has become publicized more and more as of late. If it was Project Veritas exposing Twitter or PragerU's lawsuit with Youtube most of the social media titan have been exposed for silencing particular views. Silenced pockets are calling for action, but it that really liberty?
Over the years the media has had a field day attempting to portray the Libertarian Party as a less than political party, but the LP has not done much to help their own cause. The lack of structure within the Libertarian Party has allowed it to be hijacked at times by people who only harm the plan.
Last week President Trump announced his plans for steel and aluminum tariffs in an attempt to keep true to his promise and save the steel workers jobs. The truth is that while it may save steel jobs, almost every other job sector will take a hit. Domestic consumers will feel it across the board as well.
This will be sort of a different article. Everyone wants to have a conversation about guns every time there is a mass shooting but most have never actually looked into the facts. Below I have attempted to secure a plethora of gun related statistics. Make your own conclusions.
No matter which main stream media news organization you turn on after any mass shooting you will find pundits rushing to push and/or protect their perspective gun beliefs. Both claiming to have the answers to protecting us, while actually are doing more to harm than good.
There used to be a time when although Republicans and Democrats still did not agree, they could at least agree upon a set of underlying facts that were true. It seems now more than ever in 2018 that the left and the right are playing with two different sets of facts on any given issue, and if continued can be catastrophic.
Over the course of thousands of years humans have had the ability to witness thousands of different forms of government. Government's trials and errors have been documented for centuries now giving us a pretty clear picture in 2018 of what works and what doesn't at this point. What is right and wrong. Or so you would think.
When they first hit the Grassley-Graham memo first hit the conservative media couldn't get enough. And over time all media outlets were forced to cover the story. But as time has gone on more and more information has convoluted a story to a point to complicated for most Americans and uninteresting to others. Partisan politics on both sides have highlighted the ever growing problem of lacking true facts. Facts we all can agree upon reguardless of age, gender, political orientation, race, ect.
With another government shut down looming, the Senate passed the measure, 71 to 28, The House of Representatives voted 240-186. The GOP-controlled House needed help from Democrats to clear the bill when 67 of their own party refused to approve it
Just as it seemed Washington was going to sign in yet another budget that would continue to add to the overwhelming deficit, deficit hawk Rand Paul stepped in to put a halt to the bipartisan budget proposal.
Artificial Intelligence has always fascinated the American public, but the time is hear where fantasy is starting to become a reality and the people are weary on how to take it. Many are fearful for a wide spectrum of reason, some reasonable and some unjust. But fret not my friends, A.I is hear to help improve our lives, atlas for right now.
No one wants to talk about it. And with no discussion, a solution appears to be out of the question. So what are us younger Americans left to do about social security? The ones currently paying in who do not have a prayers chance of seeing a dime of that on the other end?
There is a dirty little truth when it comes to North Korea and the recent ICBM tests. Something the media, the government, everyone has covering up for years now. The truth is no one knows what North Koreas true intentions are.
We have been completely screwing up in the Middle East pretty much since our arrival over there during the firs Bush administration. It was a conflict we never had no business being involved in, and when George W Bush continued on his fathers mission we followed deeper into a war we cannot win. Obama tried to some what pull out which failed as he decided to fund the wrong sides of many conflicts. And now Trump has announced a revitalized effort in the Middle east but still appears to be playing the wrong sides.
Below is the most comprehensive guide we have been able to esablish on the violence ANTIFA has carried out since their rise. Their heinous acts cannot be ignored so we have developed a timeline collecting everything. We will be actively keeping this updated.
Almost a month since the most lethal mass shooting on US soil and we are still left with more questions than answers, something the mainstream media has no issue accepting it seems. While there are plenty of smaller new media news networks still looking for answers, it appears the main stream has completely bonded the story. While you can still catch the occasional headline at the bottom of their site regarding the event, they allocate almost no resources to the story.
While the main stream media spent the weekend talking about the mayhem the government shut down would ensue, everything from not receiving social security checks to an astroid coming dangerously close to Earth without NASA's protection, most of us went about our daily lives as if nothing had changed. Because it didn't. Whether this is because somewhere between 88-90 percent of government agencies stay open during these shut downs, or the sheer lack of effect the government plays in our day to day lives, almost no one felt it.
No matter which echo chamber you belong to and your personal views, the fact of the matter is their is no winners when it comes to using fallen soldiers for personal agendas. President Trump was wrong when he commented on his response to fallen soldiers opposed to previous presidents. Fredrica Wilson was wrong when she came out and revealed details of an alleged private conversation. The media is wrong attempting to use both of these instances and others to push their collective agenda. It is possible for all possible sides to be wrong in a situation, and you are looking at it.
The real Russian scandal does not involve Trump at all, while his opposition in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, was along with former president Barack Obama connected to selling uranium to a hostile force for personal profit. Almost a year of the mainstream media talking about a possible scandal between now President Donald Trump and Russia they have finally uncovered a real Russian connected scandal. However this is not one from me mainstream medias previous playbook, no peeing Russian prostitutes, no fake Russian ads promoting trump.
ANTIFA, or the Anti-Fascist movement as they call themselves, or Anti Free Speech as others call them, has gone unchecked for entirely too long. The internet is littered with material of ANTIFA thugs committing countless numbers of crimes.
Obamacare is yet again thrusted into the spotlight as another bill has surfaced to attempt to repeal parts of the act. The GOP must pass this bill now more then ever if they want to build any type of momentum heading the midterm elections next year. After recent fumbles with DACA, the boarder wall, and Obamacare the first time, the Republicans in Washington could use some easy points on the board and now there sitting there. What will they do?
The NFL finds themselves in the middle of a tough situation with multiple boycotts for a plethora of reasons entering the start of the season. Some are boycotting because Kapernick is not in the league. Some are boycotting because of the disrespectful national anthem protests of players. Others its the personal conduct code. To a few its the rules. But whatever your reason it will be an interesting week for the NFL and its viewership.
