01) I’m Trans, and I Love Jordan Peterson


“He cares about us and he is worried.”

Agreed…Jordan Peterson is not against trans people…He’s fighting against the criminalization of social speech…and a government that imagines it has a right, a duty and an ability, to do such.

If you want a government that can get away with throwing people into prison, for no genuine reason at all…let them get away with passing these sorts of laws.

01) Where Are the Moderate Muslims?


“After every terrorist attack, politicians and pundits reassure us that the atrocity does not represent the true beliefs of the “moderate Muslim majority.” But how many moderates are there? And what exactly does “moderate” mean? Military instructor and researcher Hussein Aboubakr explains.”

01) How Sustainable are Tiny Houses?

“Tiny houses have their advantages for the environment. Besides their tiny footprint on the land they occupy, a tiny house can definitely help you keep your carbon footprint tiny, too.

Many of the creative space-saving and self-sufficient concepts used in the design of tiny houses have sustainability benefits that can be applied to larger homes as well.

Below are the 5 main ways tiny houses excel with sustainable design:”

01) Waking Up With Sam Harris #73 – Forbidden Knowledge (with Charles Murray)


“In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Charles Murray about the controversy over his book The Bell Curve, the validity and significance of IQ as a measure of intelligence, the problem of social stratification, the rise of Trump, universal basic income, and other topics.

Charles Murray is a political scientist and author. His 1994 New York Times bestseller, The Bell Curve (coauthored with the late Richard J. Herrnstein), sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America’s class structure. Murray’s other books include What It Means to Be a Libertarian, Human Accomplishment, and In Our Hands. His 2012 book, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 describes an unprecedented divergence in American classes over the last half century.”

Bill Nye’s ‘Gender Spectrum’ Bullcrap!…

01) REBUTTAL: Bill Nye’s ‘Gender Spectrum’ Bullcrap! | Louder With Crowder


“Bill Nye (The Not-A-Real-Science-Guy) fancies himself an expert and repeatedly scoffs at anyone who’s skeptical of his particular brand of science….which ironically often lacks actual science. We give you exhibit D from his new Netflix show ‘Bill Nye Saves The World’ on the topic of the “gender spectrum”…”

I’m not a fan of Steven Crowder, but I’m interested in the discussion surrounding this topic.

Fear Mongering, Hyperbolic Propaganda and Trash Talking, Aimed at Our Days of Observance…

01) Beware of Alice Day! April 25th


http://enchantedlifepath.com/2017/01/24/alice-day-cryptic-decode/

Alice Day is Pedophile Pride Day across the globe. Let’s do all we can to raise awareness about this day.”

I’m all but certain, “pedophile pride day” was appended to Alice Day, by trash talkers who were trying to sensationalize, mock and ridicule this day of observance…Those are the only sorts I’ve ever seen using that phrase.

Looking at this video…Some of the notions she’s spreading here, are just laughable.

You know what’s going to make “pedophile leaders” dress in checkered clothes, or “pedophiles” hang out at ice cream parlors?…

…Little more than them getting a kick, out of individually mocking your ridiculous caricatures of us.

Personally…I’m about ready to go mow the lawn, on Alice Day…

You people out there who are unfamiliar with our days of observance, need to stop pretending like this is some underground, ominous plot “that must be stopped”…And you need to stop spreading false, ridiculous information about us, who we are and what we are up to.

You are all just talking trash about us.

Why don’t you actually approach people who observe Alice Day [or IBLD], and actually find out what it is about, as opposed to relying on propagandists who don’t know what they are talking about?

Cornel West and Former Sanders Staffer on Movement to Draft Bernie for a New ‘People’s Party’…

01) Cornel West and Former Sanders Staffer on Movement to Draft Bernie for a New “People’s Party”

“As Donald Trump approaches his 100th day as president on Saturday, his approval ratings are the lowest any president has had at this stage in generations. A recent poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found just 40 percent of Americans approve of his job performance so far. Trump took to Twitter to call the poll “totally wrong.” This comes as former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has emerged as one the country’s most popular politicians. The Hill reports a Harvard-Harris poll shows 57 percent of registered voters view him favorably. Meanwhile, some former Sanders supporters have launched a movement to “Draft Bernie for a People’s Party,” urging him to start a new progressive party and run for president again in 2020. We speak with Nick Brana, the former outreach coordinator for the Bernie Sanders campaign, and Cornel West, professor of the practice of public philosophy at Harvard University. His new piece in The Guardian is headlined “The Democrats delivered one thing in the past 100 days: disappointment.”
