Rediscovering Heritage


Lack of attachment to culture, heritage, and tradition is the death of a nation.

As a child, I had very little in-depth knowledge of my family’s history. Most of my extended family had died from old age by the time of my birth except for my maternal grandfather, Nelson Pace and great aunt, Mary Paul Pittman Smyrl, both natives of Alabama and born in 1907 and 1899 respectfully. We were a rather small group and my attachments to my parents, siblings, grandfather, and great aunt were meaningful. These are the people who instilled in me the value of family, respect, and honor.

Google Latest Company To Abandon China, Shifts Smartphone Production To Vietnam

Via The Daily Timewaster


Google has reportedly become the latest company to aggressively move production out of China and in to Vietnam as it hopes to create a "low-cos supply chain in Southeast Asia" that "will serve as a springboard for its growing hardware ambitions," according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Google, which is working with a partner to manufacture its smartphones, started work on converting an old Nokia factory in the North Vietnamese province of Bac Ninh where it will produce most of its Pixel phones, per two people familiar with the company's plans. The area has a special significance in the history of smartphone development: It is the same province where Samsung built its first smartphone supply chain roughly ten years ago.

All of this history means Google will have access to an army of workers experienced.

NC: Hysteria over ‘assault weapons’

 Related image

Liberals have again resurrected the call for banning modern sporting rifles (aka assault weapons). Of course true “assault weapons” are select fire (meaning full, semi, and/or burst fire) rifles. Typically, these use rifle class cartridges, as opposed to submachine guns that use pistol cartridges.

Semi-automatic means one round fired per trigger pull; full automatic means multiple rounds fired per single trigger pull. Burst fire means a preset number of cartridges fired per pull (usually three).

Full automatic and burst fire weapons are tightly regulated by the federal government, and none made after 1986 can be owned by private citizens. There is not a presence of full or burst fire legal arms involved in crime. Additionally, pre-1986 automatics, aka class III arms, are extremely expensive. Of course, criminals can alter or steal these arms as well.

"Maybe if your job and town are gone, the fight is worth it"


The trade war may not be worth it for Wall Street, but it is worth it to Americans who have lost their jobs and towns

If you Google Peter Navarro, President Donald Trump’s trade guru (he is actually called “assistant to the president and director of trade and manufacturing policy,”) you might read that he is considered a “heterodox” economist. We suppose this means out of sync with many or most professional and academic economists. They regard “free trade” or unregulated, un-negotiated trade, as an article of faith.

But shouldn’t economists, of all people, be the opposite of doctrinaire? Should economics not be utterly empirical?

There’s far more evidence indicating Jeffrey Epstein was murdered than clues supporting the ruling that he committed suicide, the alleged sex trafficker’s lawyers argued in court on Aug. 27.

Lawyers for the 66-year-old, who was found unresponsive in his prison cell on Aug. 10 and declared dead about an hour later, said they have evidence suggesting Epstein was killed.
