7 Examples That Show How Completely And Utterly Insane Our Society Has Become, by Michael Snyder

The hard part about writing this article would be narrowing it down to seven. From Michael Snyder at themostimportantnews.com:

Reading the news has become like going to a freak show.  You never know what you are going to see each day, but it is almost certainly going to be nutty.  Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article are weird, others are infuriating, but they all point to the same conclusion.  From the very top to the very bottom, America is going crazy.  And I mean that in the worst way possible.  We truly have become an “idiocracy”, and it seems like those that are the most incompetent of all are often rewarded by being elevated to the top of the food chain.  Meanwhile, those of us that still try to approach things rationally are increasingly being pushed to the fringes of society.

If you don’t understand the point that I am trying to make, hopefully things will become clearer by the time you complete this article.

The following are 7 examples that show how completely and utterly insane our society has become…

#1 At a time when global food supplies are getting tighter and tighter, Joe Biden wants to pay farmers to not grow anything in order to fight climate change…

President Joe Biden wants to combat climate change by paying more farmers not to farm. But he’s already finding it’s hard to make that work.

His Agriculture Department is far behind its goal for enrolling new land in one program that has that goal, with participation being the lowest it’s been in more than three decades.

Thankfully, relatively few farmers are grabbing the cash that Biden is offering, because prices for agricultural commodities have soared as global supplies have tightened.

So in a desperate attempt to get more farmers to sign up, the Biden administration has “more than doubled key incentive payments”

Even though the USDA this summer more than doubled key incentive payments for the program that encourages farmers and ranchers to leave land idle, high commodity prices are keeping it more worthwhile for growers to raise crops.

On top of that, the plan, known as the Conservation Reserve Program, takes land out of production for only 10 to 15 years — so those acres could release carbon into the atmosphere if the land is planted again and thus cancel out its environmental benefit.

Considering where global trends are heading, paying farmers not to produce food is one of the stupidest things that our government could possibly be doing at this moment.

Australian town executes rescue dogs… because of COVID, by Simon Black

Woke, pro-mask pediatricians censor their own research

For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has stressed the importance of visual cues in childhood development.

In other words, young children develop language skills by seeing facial expressions in the adults they’re interacting with; when mommy smiles, it helps the child understand the words that she’s using, and that contributes heavily to overall language development.

The AAP had even published significant research on the topic, underscoring how critical it was for children to be able to see facial expressions.

But then COVID came along…

… and suddenly the “science” changed.

Over the last few weeks, the AAP has completely reversed itself, almost in 1984 style.

In a recent Twitter blitz, the AAP stated that “[t]here are no studies to support this concern” that, if adults wear facemasks when speaking to children, their language development would be harmed.

Amazing. After years of publishing the exact studies they’re talking about— that visual cues and facial expressions are critical to a child’s language development, suddenly the AAP claims there are no studies.

They even went as far as scrubbing their own website and DELETING THEIR OWN RESEARCH!

Oppose COVID restrictions? You might be a terrorist. By Simon Black

Oppose COVID restrictions? You might be a terrorist.

Leading up to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security is warning about potential terrorism.

But for some reason, it’s not focused on foreign terrorists harbored by the likes of the Taliban— now back in power in Afghanistan.

Instead, the DHS is focused on domestic extremists, saying:

“Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.”

Wait, what?? “Perceived” government restrictions? It’s as if these people think the restrictions aren’t real. We’ve apparently been imagining all the restrictions over the past 18 months.

And anyone who does imagine these “perceived” restrictions, like mask mandates for school children, must be a domestic terrorist.

That makes perfect sense.

Teachers call Child Services when kids miss online class

Teachers are serving as the state’s newest surveillance into your home.

The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families issued a fact sheet for teachers outlining when they should call DCF– the agency which can take your children and put them in foster care.

Did a kid miss an online class? Call in child services, because that could be evidence of neglect.

Teachers are also encouraged to pry into the home life of students on camera.

“Who is home today to help you with learning?”

“I’m having a hard time hearing you due to background noise/I’m hearing some other noises in the background, what else is happening at your house today?”

“I saw a person walk by your screen, who is home with you today?”

One mother has already had a DCF visit for leaving her 7-year-old boy with his teenage brother while she worked.

They used to call that babysitting. Now, apparently, it’s neglect.

$1,000 daily fines for non-compliance with health officials

Get ready for Comrade Contact Tracer.

The Governor of New Hampshire (whose state motto is ironically “Live Free or Die”) signed an executive order which forces anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 to comply with the orders of the Department of Public Health.

“Failure to comply with DPH instructions after notification of a positive COVID-19 test result, the fine shall be $1,000 per day.”

Available now: pay $2,500 to be told you’re racist, by Simon Black

Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd. From Black at sovereignman.com:

Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, your finances, and your prosperity.

You can now pay $2500 to be told you’re racist

Are you a liberal white woman who wants to pay money to be told that, deep down, you’re subconsciously racist?

If so, you’re in luck!

A new group called “Race to Dinner” is giving you the opportunity to pay $2,500 to host a dinner (you also have to provide the food), where you and your white friends will be told how racist you are.

The group’s founders (one of whom is black, the other identifies as Native American) write on their website to ALL white women: “We are talking about your complicity in upholding white supremacy and keeping Black and brown women down.”

Further, the founders refuse to ‘help’ women who voted for Trump, as they are beyond repair, as well as white men. They say, “White men are never going to change anything. If they were, they would have done it by now.”

Their website also posts videos hosted by the group’s “resident white woman” where viewers can learn how to ‘deconstruct their whiteness’.

Naughty librarians to face 1 year in prison, by Simon Black

Which specific body parts can women expose before being sex offenders?

After installing fiberglass insulation, Tilli Buchanan and her husband stripped off their shirts in the garage for safety reasons.

They didn’t want to track any of the debris into the house. While walking topless to the shower, Tilli’s stepchildren saw her bare chested.

Two years later, the children’s biological mother reported the incident to authorities.

Tilli was charged with “child sex abuse” under Utah criminal code 76-9-702.5(2)(a)(ii)(B) for exposing “the female breast below the top of the areola. . .”

Rather than argue that this specific incident was not sexual, Tilli opted to challenge the entire law.

She claimed that the law is unconstitutional under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. She and her husband were in the exact same state of undress, but she was charged with a crime, and he was not.

What has unfolded in the courts is a lengthy and ridiculous discussion about male and female body parts, and what constitutes lewdness.

Unfortunately for Tilli, the judge ruled against her, and she could face prison time, plus ten years on the sex offender registry.
