America, Children, and Donald Trump: Uncle Sam's Misguided Children Published by Rick Ferran [1 57 mins Here's the red pill some refuse to swallow. This Nike ordeal is about the trade deals that President Trump is trying to clean up and put things back in America's favor: These big companies are using near slave labor and then shipping the products back to the USA from countries that pay very little in tariffs. These companies will lose when Trump wins. Every company that has their businesses overseas and have been making huge profits will fall if they don't move their companies here. Donald Trump wants America to be number one, he wants the jobs to come back, he, like us, want American-made products, these companies for a very long time have used their powers to support Democrat policies and politicians like Hillary, Obama, etc. to create their wealth. They help globalists with their agenda so they can make a bigger profit. We are in a silent civil war, an economic, financial, trade, money war, this is how it begins. We will either come out on top of it or it will eventually lead to war. It's not about the shoes or Kaepernick, it's the principle and there's nothing hypocritical about standing for your principles. We can never bow to communism or the support of it. We cannot continue investing our money in companies who don't have the best interests for our people and our country. When these companies' interests are overseas and not for our US of A, they will fail. These multinational oligarchs are attacking America with everything they've got but they have awakened a sleeping giant. Here’s the red pill some refuse to swallow.

Angry Birds, Bad, and Bored: How to Study Likea Harvard Student Taken from Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, daughter of the Tiger Mother 1. Choose classes that interest you. That way studying doesn't feel like slave labor. If you don't want to learn, then I can't 2. Make some friends. See steps 12, 13, General Principles 3. Study less, but study better 4. Avoid Autopilot Brain at all costs. 5. Vague is bad. Vague is a waste of your time 6. Write it down. 7 Suck it up, buckle down, get it done. Plan of Attack Phase I: Class 8. Show up. Everything will make a lot more sense that way, and you will save yourself a lot of time in the long run. 9. Take notes by hand. I don't know the science behind it, but doing anything by hand is a way of carving it into your memory. Also, if you get bored you will doodle, which is still a thousand times better than ending up on stumbleupon or something. Phase II: Study Time 10. Get out of the library. The sheer fact of being in a library doesn't fill you with knowledge. Eight hours of Facebooking in the library is still eight hours of Facebooking. Also, people who bring food and blankets to the library and just stay there during finals week start to smell weird. Go home and bathe. You can quiz yourself while you wash your hair 11. Do a little every day, but don't let it be your whole day. "This afternoon, I will 0 a problem set. Then, I will watch an episode of South Park and go to the gym" ALWAYS BEATS "Starting right now, I am going to read as much as I possibly can...oh wow, now it's midnight, I'm on page five, and my room reeks of ramen 12. Give yourself incentive. There's function worse abyss study time. If you know you're going out in six hours, you're more likely to get something done. 13. Allow friends to confiscate your phone when they catch you playing Angry Birds. Oh and if you think you need a break, you probably don't. Phase 14. Stop highlighting. Underlining is supposed to keep you focused, but it's actually a one-way ticket to Autopilot Brain. You zone out, look down, and suddenly you have five pages of neon green that you don't remember reading Write notes in the margins instead. 15. Do all your own work. You get nothing out of copying a problem set. It's also shady. 16. Read as much as you can. No way around it. Stop trying to cheat with Sparknotes. 17. Be a smart reader, not a robot (lol) Ask yourself: What is the author trying to prove? What is the logical progression of the argument? You can reading the introduction and conclusion of every chapter. Then, pick any two examples/anecdotes and commit them to memory (write them down). They will help you reconstruct the author's argument later on. 18. Don't read everything, but understand everything that you read Better to have a deep understanding of a limited amount of material, than to have a vague understanding of an entire course. Once again: Vague is bad. Vague is a waste of your time 19. Bullet points. For essays, Phase IV: Reading Period (Review Week) 20. Once again: do not move into the library. Eat, sleep, and bathe 21. If you don't understand it, it will definitely be on the exam. Solution tex 22. Do all the practice problems. This one is totally tiger mom are of rote learning. Newsflash: even at great intellectual bastions like Harvard, you will be names and dates. To memorize effectively: stop reading your list over and over again. It doesn't work. Say it out loud, write it down. Remember how you made friends? Have them quiz you, then return the favor 24. Again with the friends: ask them to listen while you explain a difficult concept to them. This forces you to articulate your understanding. Remember, vague is bad. 25. Go for the big picture. Try to figure out where a specific concept fits into the course as a whole. This will help you tap into Big Themes- every class has Big Themes - which will streamline what you need to know. You can learn a million facts, but until you understand how they fit together, you're missing the point. V: Exam Day 26. Crush exam. Get A. e prep-ademic Back To School

Apple, Ass, and Bitch: Apple AirPods cost $159, but they can't pay taxes or decent wages to their Chinese factory workers! you SAID ON AN iPHONE.GOTCHA HEH *POST* CARS SHOULD HAVE SEAT BELTS! YET YOU BOUGHT ONE. HyPOCRITE MUCH? OWNED. WE SHOULD YET YOu SOCIETY . CURIOUS! I AM VERY IMPROVE SOCIETYPARTICIPATE IN SOMEWHAT. INTELLIGENT BORS celticpyro: thespectacularspider-girl: mattbors: edgeworth-for-the-truth: sindri42: captainkupo: mattbors: “Mr. Gotcha” on The Nib theres literally better alternatives to fucking buying an iphone dipshit your comic sucks dick There’s this weird disconnect in so many apple users where they hate Apple but they cannot conceive of anybody except Apple producing a viable smartphone or computer. You can get a machine that matches or exceeds every single aspect of any apple product for half the price, easily, but they need to get the one with an apple logo on it and then complain about apple. It’s like complaining that your car lacks a seatbelt when every other car on the road already has a seatbelt and you specifically paid extra to get your own seatbelt removed because you didn’t like the color. If you buy from Apple and complain about their business practices, you deserve to be made fun of and especially be called a boot licker. I am not sorry at all. You could have chosen from anyone else but you deliberately chose the most expensive and bullshit company to buy from, you pompous piece of human garbage. Stop virtue signally and maybe actually consider try helping those factory workers instead of enabling them. Shit head People really think this comic was some sort of pro-Apple comic and missed the point entirely. They’re real mad tho. And yet your stupid ass doesn’t get the underlying statements about Apple still apply to your smug comic. You don’t get to bitch about, say, capitalism when you engage in the excesses of capitalism.  To mix the two metaphors, if you bitch about capitalism from an iPhone, congrats, you just proved you’re a hypocrite because you COULD have bought a phone made with more ethical means or that didn’t have the associated brand on it, but you did.   Because you don’t really give a shit about making the changes yourself, you just want to virtue signal and have no actual principles. That’s why people bring up this kind of double-think, yet you felt the need to portray this valid criticism as a strawman so you can look intelligent. Seriously though! That’s why I hate this comic.The “cars should have seat belts” one is also dumb because guess what? The guy who conceptualized seat belts got them normalized in cars. The serf working under a feudalist system? Has absolutely no power to change it. In fact, they’re the one being exploited here, more comparable to the factory worker who built your iPhone than the upper-middle class person complaining about it. There’s a difference between recognizing a system is messed up while you have no control over the matter (as you’re the one personally being exploited), looking at a problem and deciding to change said problem, and doing absolutely nothing about the problem while participating in someone else being exploited when you can, in fact, choose not to be a partaker. No, not wanting to do something mildly inconvenient isn’t “the illusion of choice”. Fuck you and your shitty comic.

Basketball, Children, and Church: TRUMP CHOOSES JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH FOR THE SUPREME COURT On Monday, President Trump announced that he chose Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the United States Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is from Bethesda, Maryland, and is well known in conservative legal circles. “He is a committed textualist and originalist, one whose time on the bench has revealed a unique ability to apply these principles to legal facts. He deeply believes in the constitutional separation of powers as a means for ensuring governmental accountability and protecting individual liberty. From the start of his career, he’s applied the Constitution faithfully, even when that made him a lonely voice. He has done so with particular tenacity on the issue that matters most to the president: taking power away from unelected bureaucrats and returning it to elected officials.” J.D. Vance in the Wall Street Journal as reported by Politico As a member of the DC court of appeals for 12 years, Kavanaugh dissented from the majority in the case of the illegal immigrant who wanted an abortion. He stated that allowing her to have such a procedure was “a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.” By the time the Supreme Court got the case and denied her request, she already had the abortion. As a judge who holds tightly to the Constitution, Kavanaugh told the White House audience that a judge should “interpret the law, not make the law.” Brett Kavanaugh is active in the Catholic church, serving meals and tutoring students. He graduated from Yale and Yale law school, and has taught at Harvard and other schools. He tutors children, and coaches girls basketball. His wife Ashley is a former secretary to George W Bush. One criticism of Kavanaugh came from him granting an atheist standing in a court case against the Pledge of Allegiance, according to The Daily Wire. Critics also say that it was Kavanaugh whose decision to call Obamacare a “tax” that allowed Justice Roberts to uphold the disastrous healthcare program. https:-news.unclesamsmisguidedchildren.com-trump-chooses-judge-brett-kavanaugh-for-the-supreme-court- Scotus MAGA
