LA racing to be part of the third world

August 14, 2008

By way of Ace is this sad story about the LA City Council telling businesses that they have no property rights:

LA City Council Vote Unanimously That “Big Box Stores” Such as Home Depot Must Provide Shelters, Bathrooms, and Water for the Illegal Immigrants Illegally Loitering on Their Property.

History repeats

May 9, 2008

According to the AP:

Myanmar’s junta seized U.N. aid shipments Friday meant for a multitude of hungry and homeless survivors of last week’s devastating cyclone, forcing the world body to suspend further help.

The aid included 38 tons of high-energy biscuits and arrived in Myanmar on Friday on two flights from Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates.

“All of the food aid and equipment that we managed to get in has been confiscated,” U.N. World Food Program spokesman Risley said.

This is what was happening in Somalia back in the early 90’s.
The government in Myanmar doesn’t care about what happens to the citizens, out side of those needed to support their power base.
My guess is that they will use this as an excuse to kill off, through neglect, those that they don’t consider necessary. That is why they don’t want any out side observers. They just want the materials, which they will only give to those they want kept alive and use the rest to build their power base.

Greens kill children

Green heroine Rachel Carson got DDT banned. Prior to that malaria was nearly wiped out. Now malaria kills more than 800,000 children under age five every year according to the CDC. Rich Karlgaard points out, “Every year, 800,000 small children die from malaria, a disease once nearly eradicated. Ponder that.”

HT to Mr. Reynolds who pens these telling words, “…ongoing political battles over DDT, which tend to pit green correctness against the lives of poor people in the Third World.”

Update: Reducing” the number of children just may be part of their master plan.
