Obesity, aggression, developmental delays: What tablets and mobiles are doing to our children


I know we see articles like this all of the time around here, but this is the 1st I've read to suggest we need a completely separate internet for kids. Kinda reminds me of something like adult strength and child strength sedatives/medications. Mind you that I wouldn't condone a Internet for Children, I think we already have that en toto.

Stephen Kinzer reports from Cuba, where the American Dream is more popular now than ever before. Private enterprise is on the rise, kids roam the streets in American flag T-shirts, and many millennials have departed Cuba for USA itself, leaving behind an aging population.

Meanwhile:

[In Berkeley]", citizens took to the streets to beat each other as the police mostly watched."

The Defense Department brags that in 1952, it almost destroyed North Korea.

AS-

I'm surprised the bowler didn't just shoot her. Why the hell not? So much can be resolved with guns, when you think abt it.

Hello Wafers:

Bowling in someone else's lane? Such aggression will not stand.

More Americans suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, study finds.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/stress-anxiety-depression-mental-illness-increases-study-finds/

I actually think the estimate in the study is probably too low but it does point to the collapsing mental health of Americans which I think is pretty easy to see if you live in the United States or follow American news.

Here is an article on the rising mortality rates for working-class white Americans.

Here is a new landmark is WAFerism. A study of American depravity that is beyond belief. Just heard a story on NPR about it today:

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI


It's difficult even to summarize without running over the post length limit. The Osage tribe accidentally became vastly wealthy in the early 20th century. They were per capita the richest people in the world for a while. This happened "accidentally" because of course no one would have agreed to the treaty giving them control of the mineral rights under their land if it was known how much petroleum was present and how valuable it would become. But once the oil was found and tapped, they became very wealthy and the campaign to steal all of their wealth began. They were systematically defrauded and murdered on a vast scale, and some of their murderers married members of the tribe to get claim to their property before doing the deed. The vast majority of the white population were co-conspirators, including law enforcement and judges. Which is what led to the founding of the FBI to try to stop it. This is a new extreme of hustling you would not believe if it were put in a work of fiction.

Michael Shannon, 57, defecated on the floor of a laundromat, then scooped up the excrement and placed it inside the soap dispenser compartment of a washing machine.

Who the f'k believed Bernie Shmernie in the first place? Just see his "stellar" record. Hedges called him a sheepdog and a useful-idiot.

Was she over the line? Was it a league game? ;-)

Jeff-

At least it was hot excrement. If there's one thing I can't stand in my laundry, it's cold excrement. Brr.
