German girls given magic tattoos to prevent Muslim molestation in public pools

After letting in, and continuing to let in, hordes of Muslim “refugees” and “migrants” in the name of humanitarianism — including strapping military-age men — the countries of Western Europe discovered they have a big problem.

Muslim refugees destroy

Those strapping military-age male “refugees” are sexually attacking European women and young girls. See:

Instead of doing the sensible thing — kicking the Muslims out — countries like Belgium and Norway are offering classes to teach Muslim “migrants” that the proper way to treat European women — their hosts — is not to rape them.

Alas, that didn’t work, as shown by the rape of a worker at a Belgian asylum center by a 16-year-old Afghan “migrant” just two weeks after he’d attended the course.

Sweden came up with another brilliant solution — “Don’t Touch Me” bracelets for girls to wear.

So now, the Germans are resorting to magic tattoos.

As reported by the UK Express on August 23, 2016, the Bodensee district in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg has launched a new rape-prevention campaign with press-on temporary tattoos for young girls of the word “NO” surrounded by angel-like wings.

German magic 'no' tattoo to deter Muslim rapesThe Bodensee district is famous for its bathing and boasts numerous indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Alleged sex attacks by migrants have caused heated debate in the area over the last few months and some pools are hiring extra security – or even banning “asylum seekers” altogether.

Veronika Wascher-Goggerle, the Women’s and Family representative of the Bodensee district who is behind the campaign, is a bundle of political-correctness confusion.

While admitting that the press-on tattoos would help raise awareness over the growing issue of sex attacks in swimming pools, Wascher-Goggerle insists her campaign has nothing to do with migrants in that there have always been sexual abuse problems at swimming pools, even before the start of the refugee crisis. At the same time, however, she concedes that “The temporary tattoos are an incentive for young Muslim male swimmers to think about the issue.” 

Investment Watch Blog points out that Hillary Clinton is just as insane and stupid as Veronika Wascher-Goggerle.

Aetna ditching 70% of its ObamaCare business

Obamacare: Going as planned.

tried to warn you

Via NY Post: Insurance giant Aetna won’t be offering coverage under ObamaCare next year in 11 of the 15 states it now serves — an announcement that instantly became an issue in the presidential race.

Aetna’s decision led Donald Trump to charge that President Obama’s health care reform was “imploding.” “Aetna’s decision to leave the Affordable Care Act’s public marketplaces is the latest blow to this broken law that is slowly imploding under its regulatory red tape,” said Trump campaign deputy national policy director Dan Kowalski.

Millions of Americans have lost their health coverage under this disastrous policy, eliminating their ability to choose their doctors. Thousands of businesses have been forced to cut employment or shutter their doors in response to Obama’s signature achievement,” he added.

The company had previously warned that it expected to lose more than $300 million this year on the 900,000 patients it covers under the Affordable Care Act. Aetna said it is pulling out of ObamaCare markets in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas.

Aetna does not currently offer the policies in New York. It does offer other medical insurance to individuals and small businesses as well as large employers in the state, officials said. It will continue to offer policies in Delaware, Iowa, Nebraska and Virginia.

ObamaCare is credited with expanding coverage to millions of previously uninsured or under-insured people.

O laughs

But insurers have complained they have lost money on the policies. United Health Group and Humana are other insurers exiting ObamaCare plans.

Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini, in a statement, said there were not enough younger, healthier customers signing up to make ObamaCare policies sustainable. “The vast majority of payers have experienced continued financial stress within their individual public exchange business. Providing affordable, high-quality health care options to consumers is not possible without a balanced risk pool,” Bertolini said.

More than a dozen nonprofit insurance co-ops have shut down in the past couple years. The pullouts could spell trouble because competition is supposed to help control price increases.

Some states like Alaska and Oklahoma will be left with only one insurer selling ObamaCare plans to individuals in 2017. More densely populated states like New York say their ObamaCare markets remain strong.

But rates for customers are skyrocketing to maintain stability.

Obamacare Screw U

Citing increased medical costs, New York recently authorized insurers offering individual ObamaCare plans to increase premiums by an average 16.6 percent — the highest rate hike in the program’s four-year existence. New York’s small businesses will get hit with an average 8.3 percent rate hike.

Angela Merkel urges company chiefs to hire more refugees to reduce the number relying on German state handouts

Liberal logic at work.

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

From Daily Mail: Angela Merkel has invited big company executives to attend a summit next month where she will urge them to hire more refugees.

More than one million migrants flooded into Germany last year, and the government wants to get as many as possible into the job market. This will reduce their dependence on the state and compensate for labour shortages as the workforce ages.

Merkel will push reluctant German companies to offer more traineeships and positions to refugees, the newspaper Bild reported.

Large companies have been criticized for doing little to help integrate the refugees into the thriving job market. Companies say most of the new arrivals lack the German language skills and the education required for a job.

Engineering giant Siemens, chemicals group Evonik , carmakers Opel and VW and utility RWE will share with Merkel the results of pilot projects with refugees. Merkel’s office declined to confirm Bild’s report, which said the meeting at the chancellery will take place September 14.

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported a month ago that the 30 biggest DAX-listed companies had until June employed only 54 refugees, including 50 who were hired by logistics provider Deutsche Post.

Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel last month urged large companies to do more for refugees, saying their efforts pale in comparison to the Mittelstand, the small and medium-size companies considered the backbone of Europe’s biggest economy.

More than 1.1 million migrants arrived in Germany last year, mostly refugees fleeing conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

‘Racially insensitive’ Ortiz bobblehead pulled before baseball game

I have no idea why this bobblehead is deemed “racially insensitive” – I just don’t see it. It’s probably because of my white privilege.

david ortiz bobblehead

Via AP: The Boston Red Sox canceled a David Ortiz bobblehead promotion Tuesday night when the figurine turned out to be ”racially insensitive,” said team president Sam Kennedy.

The bobblehead depicts Ortiz addressing fans at Fenway Park following the Boston Marathon bombings, but Kennedy said it didn’t much resemble the retiring slugger and was not fit for distribution.

Kennedy saw the final version of the bobblehead for the first time Tuesday afternoon after they were delivered.

”My two immediate reactions were first, it was a really inaccurate portrayal of what he looks like,” Kennedy told The Associated Press. ”My personal reaction was it was offensive and, to me, kind of appeared racially insensitive. I just had a bad reaction.”

He then held a meeting with several team officials.

”My gut feeling was if I have that negative reaction then our fans may as well,” he said. ”We just made the decision to scrap the whole thing. We apologize to everyone tonight and will make it up to fans.”

The giveaway was supposed to be for the first 15,000 fans at Tuesday’s game against the Yankees. To make up for the inconvenience, any fan holding a ticket to the game will be able to get a new Ortiz bobblehead once they are reproduced.

The rejected bobblehead was made by BDA, Inc., and the company will also produce the replacements.

”We value our decades-long relationship with the Red Sox organization and its decision to postpone Tuesday’s David Ortiz bobblehead giveaway,” BDA said in a statement. ”We’re currently working closely with the Red Sox to ensure the team and its fans receive a quality product.”

The Red Sox sent out a statement and apology via their website and social media several hours before a 5-3 win over the Yankees. ”We’re going to redo them and get them right and apologize for the disappointment for anyone tonight,” Kennedy said.

Middle-class Venezuelans liquidate savings to stockpile food

Ain’t socialism grand?

Typical grocery story in Venezuela

Typical grocery story in Venezuela

From Yahoo: Tebie Gonzalez and Ramiro Ramirez still have their sleek apartment, a fridge covered with souvenir magnets from vacations abroad, and closets full of name brand clothes. But they feel hunger drawing near.

So when the Venezuelan government opened the long-closed border with Colombia this weekend, the couple decided to drain what remained of the savings they put away before the country spun into economic crisis and stock up on food. They left their two young sons with relatives and joined more than 100,000 other Venezuelans trudging across what Colombian officials are calling a “humanitarian corridor” to buy as many basic goods as possible.

“This is money we had been saving for an emergency, and this is an emergency,” Ramirez said. “It’s scary to spend it, but we’re finding less food each day and we need to prepare for what’s coming.”

Gonzalez, 36, earns several times the minimum wage with her job as a sales manager for a chain of furniture stores in the western mountain town of San Cristobal. But lately, her salary is no match for Venezuela’s 700 percent inflation. Ramirez’s auto parts shop went bust after President Nicolas Maduro closed the border with Colombia a year ago, citing uncontrolled smuggling, and cut off the region’s best avenue for imported goods.

The couple stopped eating out this year, abandoned plans to buy a house and put a “for sale” sign on their second car. There is no more sugar for coffee, no more butter for bread and no more infant formula for their 1-year-old son.

When Ramirez, 37, went to get a late night snack on Friday, he found nothing in the refrigerator. So Sunday, the couple donned their nicest clothes and hid fat wads of bills in their bags. Before heading to the border, they surveyed the stocks in their renovated granite kitchen: An inch of vegetable oil at the bottom of a plastic jug. A single package of flour. Some leftover cooked rice. No coffee.

Then they set off in a 2011 Jeep SUV onto bandit-plagued highways, the lights of hillside shantytowns glinting in the blue darkness like stars.

At the crossing, scowling soldiers with automatic weapons patrolled a line that wrapped around more than a dozen blocks. The couple considered turning back. But within minutes, people started shouting that immigration officials were waving everyone through, and the line broke into a stampede.

A mad dash to Columbia

A mad dash to Columbia

Gonzalez and Ramirez ran with thousands of others toward a bridge barely wide enough for two cars to pass. Soon, it was packed as tightly as a rush-hour subway train. Some people cradled newborns, others toted dogs as they headed to a new life in Colombia. Most carried suitcases and backpacks to fill with groceries.

The couple held hands to stop the crowd from pushing them apart. Two hours passed. People sang the national anthem. Gonzalez’s feet ached in Tommy Hilfiger wedge heels. People who couldn’t stand the claustrophobia and heat doubled back to try to swim across the river, but soldiers stopped them.

At last, the Colombian flags came into view. Soon, the bridge opened out onto a road lined with officials waving, cheering, even doling out cake. No one checked ID cards. Beyond the reception line, folk music played and kiosks sold products that have become treasures in Venezuela: rice, toothpaste, detergent, and sacks of sugar.

Gonzalez was crying behind her oversized aviator glasses. “I thought the crossing would be easier. It made me feel so humiliated, like I was an animal; a refugee,” she said.

“But look how different things are on this side. It’s like Disneyland,” responded Ramirez. Not only was the town filled with prized groceries, but everything was much cheaper than on Venezuelan black market, now the only alternative for people who don’t have time to spend in the hours-long lines for scarce goods that have become the most salient feature of the oil country’s economic crisis.

They changed their Venezuelan money into Colombian currency at a mall, where Gonzalez luxuriated in the clean, air-conditioned space as she window-shopped for watches and handbags.

As she browsed past the shoes, a TV report flashed on the store television: It was an aerial shot of the bridge she had crossed over, crammed with people. “Humanitarian crisis,” the headline said. “Oh no,” Gonzalez whispered.

Other shoppers were indignant. “That isn’t Venezuela. That isn’t us,” said a woman who was looking at sneakers. Gonzalez crossed herself and left. It was time to go food shopping and get home.

The variety at the mall supermarket felt unreal after so many months of scrounging in near-empty stores. The couple debated over the best baby toothpaste. Gonzalez ran her hand over seven varieties of shampoo. She examined each option in an aisle of pasta.

But while things were cheaper than in shortage-hit Venezuela, they were pricier than they had expected. They decided to skip the flour and sugar, instead choosing seven packages of the cheapest pasta. They went for cloudy off-brand cooking oil instead of the more expensive canola. Every price was checked and rechecked as the couple spent three hours deciding how to allocate their emergency fund. “It’s more expensive than we had hoped, but what matters is that it’s available at all,” Ramirez said.

Other Venezuelans in the store — teachers, small business owners and office workers — pored over prices and reluctantly put things back.

In the end, the couple bought enough food to fill two suitcases and a duffel bag, then slipped into the stream of exhausted shoppers filing back to Venezuela. Colombian officials said Monday there would be no more one-day border openings.

Colombian soldiers shook hands with the departing Venezuelans and wished them well. But the kindness didn’t lift the shoppers’ spirits the same way it had when they entered Colombia hours earlier. At home, Ramirez and Gonzalez stacked their hard-won supplies into gleaming white pantry cabinets. They still looked pretty bare.

Tenor who sang ‘all lives matter’ during the Canadian national anthem is suspended from quartet

all lives matter song

From Daily Mail: A Canadian singer has been suspended from an operatic vocal group after he changed the lyrics to his country’s anthem and held up a sign reading ‘All Lives Matter’ during a pre-game performance at Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game.

Remigio Pereira and the rest of The Tenors quartet were singing ‘O Canada’ with at San Diego’s Petco Park when he made the controversial statement that outraged supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The other members of The Tenors apologized and distanced themselves from Pereira, calling him a ‘lone wolf’ and announcing he will not be performing with them ‘until further notice’.

It appears his days with the group may be numbered, with one member suggesting he will not return. ‘I don’t think we can see ourselves performing with Remigio again,’ said group member Fraser Walters in an interview with CBC News.

Walters said he was sorry the anthem was ‘compromised’ and insisted Pereira took it upon himself to ‘take a political stand.’

Video of the incident shows the other three members wordlessly harmonizing the anthem as Pereira sings the altered lyrics. After the incident the group released a blistering statement, saying Pereira acted alone and was disrespectful and selfish.

The change happened during the middle portion of the anthem, which is frequently sung in French at sporting events. Pereira unexpectedly sang: ‘We’re all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great.’ The normal lyric is ‘With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free.’ ‘All Lives Matter’ was written on the front of his sign, and ‘United We Stand’ was written on the back.

R doing the unthinkable: Holding up an "All Lives Matter" sign

Remigio doing the unthinkable: Holding up an “All Lives Matter” sign

That first phrase – ‘All Lives Matter’ – has become a common online response in recent months to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, particularly after the fatal police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile last week.

Although the motivations and ethnicities of those saying ‘All Lives Matter’ vary, it has received heavy criticism from people who say it serves to trivialize and erase the specific struggles faced by black people.

In a statement on Facebook, Pereira, who was born in Boston and raised in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, said he wasn’t attempting to undermine Black Lives Matter. ‘I’ve been so moved lately by the tragic loss of life and I hoped for a positive statement that would bring us ALL together,’ he wrote. ‘ONE LOVE. That was my singular motivation when I said all lives matter. I am disturbed that people would attribute anything other than the purist of intentions to my actions.’

He also faced criticism and ridicule for earlier Facebook posts which supported the conspiracy theory that the earth is flat. The posts have since been deleted.

Meanwhile, many fans at Petco Park reacted with surprise when they saw Pereira hold up the sign as video was broadcast on the ballpark scoreboard.

And while the Canadian anthem wasn’t shown live on US television it did air in Canada, where social media lit up with overwhelming criticism of the change. ‘WTF were they thinking?’ wrote @BrendonONeill. ‘Way to butcher a national anthem you racist pricks,’ fumed @WeirdNeil.

And @ElliottKrista said that it was okay to change the anthem ‘to be more inclusive’ – referencing the country’s decision this year to make its anthem gender neutral – but ‘NOT to erase the struggles of a minority group.’

On their Facebook and Twitter pages, the Tenors said they were ‘deeply sorry for the disrespectful and misguided lack of judgment by one member of the group acting as a “lone wolf.” ‘The other members of the group are shocked and embarrassed by the actions of Remigio Pereira, who changed the lyrics of our national anthem and used this coveted platform to serve his own political views.

Dog eyeroll

‘Our sincere apologies and regrets go out to everybody who witnessed this shameful act, to our fellow Canadians, to Major League Baseball, to our friends, families, fans and to all those affected.

Venezuela to Seize Kimberly-Clark Factory as Production Ends

Aint’ socialism grand?

Desperation in Venezuela: 5,000 Venezuelans loot supermarket

Desperation in Venezuela: 5,000 Venezuelans loot supermarket

From ABC News: Venezuela’s government said Monday that it will seize a factory belonging to Kimberly-Clark Corp. after the U.S. personal care giant said it was no longer possible to manufacture in this crisis-wracked South American nation.

Labor Minister Owaldo Vera said the socialist government was taking the action at the request of the 971 workers who have occupied the factory that the company decided to shutter in central Aragua state.

Kimberley-Clark announced on Saturday that it was suspending production in Venezuela because of a lack of primary materials, currency trouble and soaring inflation. The company made a number of hard-to-find staples in Venezuela such as diapers and face tissues.

“Kimberly-Clark will continue producing for all of the Venezuelans,” Vera said in a televised statement from the factory surrounded by workers chanting pro-government slogans.

President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist government accused Kimberly-Clark of failing to properly notify the government of its plans.

The Irving, Texas-based company said Monday that it acted appropriately in suspending operations.

“If the Venezuelan government takes control of Kimberly-Clark facilities and operations, it will be responsible for the well-being of the workers and the physical assets, equipment and machinery in the facilities going forward,” the company said in a statement.

Kimberly-Clark joins Bridgestone, General Mills, Procter & Gamble and other multinational corporations in scaling back operations in Venezuela amid its economic crisis.
