[DAILYCALLER] HuffPost editor Emily McCombs tweeted Friday about her desire to “kill all men” as part of her New Year’s Resolutions.
New Year’s resolutions:
1. Cultivate female friendships
2. Band together to kill all men — Emily McCombs (@msemilymccombs) December 29, 2017
McCombs, who serves as the “Editorial Director of Parents” for HuffPo, previously wrote an article in November titled, “I Don’t Know If I Can Raise A Good Man.”
In the post, she talks about her own son, saying, “(o)f course, we all want to raise feminist sons. I wrote an article a few months ago detailing the ways I try to do just that. But my efforts are starting to seem like grains of sand against a steady wave-crash of misogyny and rape culture.”
She wrote all. OK, send the MPs over to pick her up for immediate deployment to forward operations base Bitch in remote Afghanland. We can give her the opportunity to kill a lot of males. She can live the unsheltered life so a few days.
McCombs had a rough time in 1997 as a 14-yr. old according to a Daily Mail article. The details are a bit sketchy as to how she found herself in the situation she ended up in. Article. Unfortunately, she has generalized her feelings to all men. She does have a son and I wonder how he has managed to get along while growing up.
[DAILYCALLER] MSNBC Host Chris My Thigh is Tingling! Matthews ... the late Tip O'Neill's former gopher who has magazines with centerfolds of Barack Obama in his bathroom... runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of "battered wives syndrome," according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller.
Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who was eager to objectify women and made inappropriate sexual comments appear to be a matter of course for someone in his position.
Both former NBC producers requested anonymity out of concern for their future careers. One is actively seeking a job in media and the other still works closely with MSNBC. One expressed fears about being labeled a "troublemaker" and cited the string of former Fox News women who have all but disappeared from television.
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, will launch the world´s largest regulated commercial market for recreational marijuana on Monday, as dozens of newly licensed stores catering to adults who enjoy the drug for its psychoactive effects open for business up and down the state. It becomes the sixth U.S. state, and by far the most populous, venturing beyond legalized medical marijuana to permit the sale of cannabis products of all types to customers at least 21 years old. Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Nevada were the first to introduce recreational pot sales on a state-regulated, licensed and taxed basis.
The problem being that the cannabis grown today is a lot stronger than that grown in the 1960's. It also has stuff in it other than the "active" ingredient. I predict a heavier that usual influx into emergency rooms and more accidents due to brain damage.
Many in California are calling for a ban on menthol flavored tobacco because they say it targets minorities. On the other hand they have no problem with the sale of cookies and candy made from high grade hash oil as long as some of the taxes go towards K-12 education. Sounds reasonable.
A nice way to replace taxes lost in fight againts cigarettes.
The marijuana market in California alone, which boasts the world's sixth-largest economy, is valued by most experts at several billion dollars annually and is expected to generate at least a $1 billion a year in tax revenue.
Uh, weed doesn't do that. It just gets you stoned.
Cannabis has been documented to trigger paranoid schizophrenia in the genetically susceptible, Harcourt Angoluting9366. The fact that only a small percent of the population is genetically susceptible just means we’re going to see more spree killings over the next few years — though most will be mysterious murders of entire families and neighbours... or that thing that happened in Las Vegas.
We’ve known about the impact on a few for generations — but perhaps you are too young to remember the television show “Taxi” back in the 1970s-‘80s— at one point it was revealed that the character of Jim Ignatowski while studying at Harvard had eaten a single pot brownie, which caused the permanent mental damage that made his every utterance a standing joke for the duration of the show.
People with good genes and solid backgrounds will be resilient and connected enough that getting stoned on the weekend will do them no harm. Those with genetic susceptibilities and the poor will do it when it will trigger problems and impair their ability to work, destroying them.
I'm not sure that there will be an increased number of visits to the ER. The new laws on pot may pull in the age when people start smoking pot to be a bit lower, but over time, it seems to me that those who will try pot will try it, thereby just bunching some of the future cases to be closer to the present. I don't, however, like the idea of smoking pot before the brain finishes "pruning" and maturing in the mid-20s or so.
Back in the 1960s, the ASME (american Society of Mechanical Engineers) wrote an article about the most significant sources of pollution in the US. They determined that "personal pollution" due to smoking was many times worse than the worst smog day in LA at the time. As a result they said that the most benefit to the public health was addressing "personal pollution" for the money.
