My father-in-law used to say “If it sounds to good to be true, it is too good to be true!” Another famous quote is “You get what you pay for!” So why am I mentioning these things in a post on Cookies and what does that have to do with you? Well, demographic information on Facebook helped re-elect Barak Obama in 2012. The government used Facebook to experiment with your emotions. Facebook tracks everything you do on your personal devices, computer, tablet and smart phone. This tracking can lead to privacy compromise, unreliable computers, devices and smartphones, targeting for advertisements as well as potential association with websites or organizations with whom you and/or your friends may not want to be associated at all.
So free comes at a price and that is what “How the Cookies Crumble” is all about. Basically, sites like Facebook say; “If you want to use our stuff for free you have to give up your right to privacy.” Facebook states that it is for our best interest and they are protecting and providing us with a better experience. We’ll read that a little later right from the Facebook privacy agreement and decode what it really means. For now we’ll focus on Facebook as the example but Google, Yahoo and any other “free” services use the same techniques to track everything you do. In fact practically every web site you visit uses some kind of tracking. Continue reading
Ebola infected nurse Nina Pham boarded a charcoal grey aircraft headed out of Dallas to a special isolation ward at the National Institutes of Health Hospital in Maryland.
So anyone wondering about these unmarked, almost black, aircraft. Guesses anyone? Well Here is the information:
The Pentagon named the bombing campaign against ISIS “Operation Inherent Resolve”! A bombing campaign that has had little or no effect in slowing down ISIS. It seems that due to the lack of effective results another name would, perhaps, be more appropriate: “Operation Unapparent Resolve”!
When you look at the bombing campaigns in 1991 and 2004 there is a little bit of a difference. The current campaign is anemic compared to the previous campaigns. ISIS fighters should be afraid to stick their head out of the hole in which they are hiding.
Unfortunately, they are still moving forward their attacks on Iraqi and Syrian towns and cities. The big worry at this point is what will the American people do when they see an American pilot beheaded on TV.
Well, there is an old saying; “Common sense, the most uncommon thing in America”. Given the current circumstances I have to agree with that wholeheartedly.
A second healthcare worker in Dallas has contracted Ebola.The second of seventy-seven workers who treated Thomas Duncan, a man who came to the US from Liberia by lying to get on a flight. Our healthcare system is not prepared for even a small outbreak of Ebola, much less an epidemic. Further, the fact that these “unexplained” contractions of Ebola occurred with healthcare workers following the brilliant, yet completely arrogant and condescending, advice of the CDC is inevitable.
How is it that our government, citing that public safety as being paramount, can summarily stop flights to Ben Gurion airport for nearly a week because a single Hamas rocket landed a mile away from the airport while, stating that our public safety is not at risk, allowing flights from west Africa to continue freely flowing into this country?

The Agenda and Recent Events
Recent events of serious unrest in Ferguson Missouri have been at the forefront of the media. The Obama administration, underwritten by the mainstream media and black radical groups, has incited outrage over a black man who was shot and killed by a white police officer and have made accusations of racism and injustice. At the same time the administration, and the mainstream media, has been virtually silent regarding the brutal beheading of a white grandmother by a black man in Moore Oklahoma. Most people look at this and shake their heads in disgust wondering how can this be so? How can their be such outrage over a hoodlum killed by a police officer and yet such dispassion about a completely innocent grandmother who was brutally beheaded in her place of work? Considering the series of events that have occurred since Barak Obama became president, it seems to call into question the fundamental character of the administration.
The degree to which the liberal left has taken political correctness has just gotten simply insane. A school district in Lincoln Nebraska recently conducted teacher training where they were coached to refrain from using gender terminology with the children for fear of offending them. Teachers were encouraged to use terms like “hey campers” and, yes you’ve guessed it, “purple penguins”! They were encouraged not to have the children line up as boys and girls but as perhaps, even and odd birth dates.
In God We Trust
Recently, I have been receiving phone calls on a daily basis regarding my political position. Are you “conservative” or “liberal” they ask? Then they proceed to rattle off a list of candidates and ask for my position on various issues. They never fail to ask two questions:
1) Is the country going in the right direction or the wrong direction?
2) What do you believe to be the most important issue facing the country, or the state at this time?
