Greetings from Tyler,
Why was this guy was working as a mechanic at American Airlines? Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani tried to sabotage an American jet just before it was due to fly 150 passengers to Nassau, Bahamas back in July. He said he didn’t intend to harm the airplane or its passengers, but he figured that he’d get overtime work when the plane was delayed or grounded due to problems he created with the navigational system. It seems contract negotiations with his union were taking too long and he needed the income. Terrorism? No, nothing of the kind. He just needed the extra pay.
It’s a little unsettling. The answer to the opening question is probably that the airline is sensitive to “diversity” quotas and therefore must hire Abdullahs, Mohammmeds, and Ahmeds to avoid lawsuits alleging discrimination. When you’re walking to your gate, it’s a little unsettling when you hear the name “Abdullah!” shouted and echoing through the concourse. That happened recently, but it was only one janitor (probably with a badge that allowed security to be circumvented) calling to another.
People who don’t follow current events may not know how crazy things are getting, and that would be reason enough to avoid being informed. It’s rather unnerving, and getting more so by the day.
The crop of presidential hopefuls are floating ideas that would end modern life as we know it. They demand control over what we eat, what we drive, how much energy we consume, the list is literally endless. Climate change, according to CNN and the seven-hour special they put on this week, is a crisis. We must do what these people say, or we’re complicit with destruction of the planet. They’ll outlaw all the things that make life comfortable, especially energy production. Offshore drilling? They want it banned. Fracking? They’ll put an immediate stop to it. How much would we be paying if we were still hostage to Muslim nations? Probably twice what we are.
There will be pain, both economic and physical, but according to the would-be dictators, we must suffer if the planet is to be saved. The pope warned this week that we must begin to live simpler lives, just before boarding his Vatican jet to fly to Africa. They claim WE need to lead simpler lives while they have no intention of doing so. Why in these “debates” does no one ask what is being done to limit the vast unregulated pollution in China, India, and Singapore? They act as if controlling every aspect of life in America is somehow going to alter future climate, when they can’t even predict what will happen next week, let alone 40 or 50 years out. The arrogance of those espousing global warming is off the chart. But, with the help of the mainstream media, they’ll shame us, call us every name in the book and claim we’re “destroying the planet” if we don’t go along with a scam that puts them in charge of every detail.
A Swedish professor, Magnus Söderlund, just went on record to condone cannibalism, because, you know, climate change is making resources scarce. He’s open to the hideous reality himself because he says revulsion against the practice is a “conservative taboo,” and he wouldn’t want to appear conservative. This stuff is sick and getting worse if that’s possible.
San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors have just declared the NRA a terrorist organization! Never mind that it dates back to the late 1800s, and has been responsible for teaching millions how to handle and operate firearms safely. So, if the NRA is a “terrorist organization,” that means that all its members are supporting a terrorist organization. Idiocy is contagious, and these people are sick!
But all this nonsense is leading to an obvious conclusion.
Eventually, they’ll declare us all criminals of one stripe or another. We’re either out to “destroy the planet,” or supporting terrorism, or bigoted haters or… There’s another wrinkle every day or two. Ultimately, they want people with whom they disagree to be banished from society. It’s extremely disconcerting to see that the mainstream media, educational institutions, and major corporations have fallen in line. But they need the financial institutions to police everybody’s actions. That ought to fix us! They’ll deny credit to businesses or individuals who violate their snowflake sensibilities. Internet giants have fallen in line or were promoting socialist ideology all along. The biggest retailers are careful not to run afoul of the latest demands. How long do you think it will be before credit-card companies and banks start to police the activities of customers?
It’s coming. The Bible tells us no one will be able to buy or sell unless they sign on to global dictates. The demands and dictates are preached day and night in our newspapers and TV networks, and very few are willing to call it what it is. Socialism, Communism, Globalism. They want a One World System to make us sign on to their perverse righteousness and punish us if we don’t. So far they’re just calling us names. The goal is to force us to “convert,” or failing that, just put us completely out of business.
