Jordan Peterson Propagates the Same Old Lines Against ‘Pedophiles’?…

Date: February 09, 2018

01) “One of the interesting things to know about pedophiles” Jordan Peterson “They’re predatory”

“In this lecture, He continues with the analysis of the Disney film Pinocchio to illustrate the manner in which great mythological or archetypal themes inform and permeate both the creation and the understanding of narratives.”

I’ve not watched the Pinocchio lectures, so…

…Not sure if this was all a set up, for something unexpected…or if Jordan was just smearing “pedophiles” as being “predators”.

Ultimately…I am not shocked, and never expected Jordan to be especially well informed about this issue.

7 Things You Might Not Know About Tiny House Community Life…

01) 7 Things You Might Not Know About Tiny House Community Life

“A few years ago, almost no one had even heard of a tiny house. But now? Across the nation, more than a dozen cities are become officially tiny-home friendly and 50-plus communities of tiny homes have cropped up—everything from intimate backyard co-ops and tiny house/RV parks to upcoming full-on urban developments.

My main squeeze, Christian and I have had the pleasure of becoming temporary residents of more than a dozen of tiny home communites, of all kinds. If there’s one thing we have learned, downsizing into a tiny structure is just the beginning. Living tiny, especially in a community setting, is a total rethink of daily life and what it means to be a neighbor.

Everyone gets fed
Chemistry is everything
Life happens outdoors
A tiny house is a sanctuary, not an attraction
There’s always room for pets
Your neighbors have your back
Neighbors become family”

Nice article.


Sheriff On Killing Suspect: “I Love This Sh*t” (VIDEO)…

01) Sheriff On Killing Suspect: “I Love This Sh*t” (VIDEO)

“Sheriff Oddie Shoupe didn’t know that the body cam was still recording him.


“A Tennessee sheriff is being sued for using excessive force after he was recorded boasting he had told officers to shoot a man rather than risk damaging police cars by ramming him off the road.

“They said ‘we’re ramming him,’” Sheriff Oddie Shoupe of White County said on tape in the aftermath of the killing of suspect Michael Dial. “I said, ‘Don’t ram him, shoot him.’ Fuck that shit. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars.”

Shoupe arrived on the scene shortly after police had shot Dial at the conclusion of a low-speed chase, clearly upset he had missed the excitement.

“I love this shit,” Shoupe said, apparently unaware that his comments were being picked up by another deputy’s body-worn camera. “God, I tell you what, I thrive on it.

“If they don’t think I’ll give the damn order to kill that motherfucker they’re full of shit,” he added, laughing. “Take him out. I’m here on the damn wrong end of the county,” he said.

Shoupe’s comments have prompted a federal lawsuit from Dial’s widow, Robyn Dial, alleging the use of excessive force against her late husband, who was unarmed.”

Jeremy Corbyn Puts Trump in His Place Over Ignorant Healthcare Tweet…

01) Jeremy Corbyn Puts Trump in His Place Over Ignorant Healthcare Tweet

“President Trump tweeted about protests in the United Kingdom over their National Health System (NHS) and ended up angering Brits like Jeremy Corbyn. Why? He incorrectly implied protesters were marching against Great Britain’s NHS, but in actuality, they were marching because they love their universal healthcare system and want Conservatives to stop sabotaging it.






What an absolute, fork tongued snake Donald Trump is…

…I apologize to all snakes on this planet, for defaming them so badly with that last sentence.

You cannot trust anything Donald Trump says.
