Manfred Lindenbaum, a Holocaust survivor says that even if the Jews were armed, they would not have been able to stop the Nazis. “I think that when people say that if we would have had guns we could have persevered. It is utterly and total nonsense.” He says this in reaction to certain government officials that are trying to defend the existing U.S. Gun laws by comparing present day to what happened during World War II.

He continues on furthering bringing his point across with references about Cuba and Australia when they banned gun use, and how the number of murders and suicides by guns went down.

According to Lindenbaum, whether or not the Jews had access to guns during the holocaust, they would still be all dead and it wouldn’t have made a difference. “I think this whole thing with guns just drives me absolutely crazy to think that anybody could be safer having a gun.” Says Lindenbaum.

A Republican congressman, Don Young who is NRA-backed made remarks regarding the Jewish people killed in the Holocaust when he was attempting to argue against stricter gun control laws that the US government is trying to impose. He suggested in his speech that the Jewish people could have had saved themselves against the Nazi tyranny if they had been armed. He also implied that Americans would feel ‘less safe’ if they were to tighten the gun laws in the country.

“How many millions of people were shot and killed because they were unarmed? Fifty million in Russia,” he mentioned in a conference in Juneau, Alaska.

Rep. Don Young also added: “How many Jews were put in the ovens because they were unarmed?” Although he is not the first republican to suggest that holocaust victims would have been better off had they been armed, his statements have been condemned as offensive and insensitive .

In the 2016 presidential election, former candidate Ben Carson also made similar comments by comparing gun control to Nazi Germany. CNN reporter Wolf Blitzer asked him “if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would jews have been slaughtered?” Carson replied by saying “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed.”

Little did these candidates know that during the late 1930’s, the Jews were already armed before laws were created to seize all their weapons. Lindenbaum and his family were able to safely flee from Nazi Germany when he was only six years old.

Police body camera footage shows a Florida sheriff purposely botching the results of a roadside drug test during a traffic stop, and then arresting an innocent man.

The video which was obtained by Reason and filmed last April 17, 2018, shows Florida resident Steve Vann being stopped on the road during a routine traffic stop by former Jackson County Sheriff’s deputy Zachary Wester. The police searched the vehicle and Wester pulls out a small plastic from the center console to test it for methamphetamines using the Nark II field test. As per the manufacturer of the field test, the results “will develop an immediate (within 2 seconds) Dark Blue color as a positive reaction after breakage and agitation of the 3rd ampoule. If the color development is an immediate Pink slowly transforming to Lavender, you do not have either Methamphetamine or MDMA.”

Although the results of this small plastic bag clearly turned red, as seen in the footage, Wester claimed it was ‘blue’ and pressured Vann to admit that he had knowledge of the methamphetamine found inside his car. Vann continued to deny this and was even brought to tears at several points. As a result of this routine traffic stop, Vann was charged with possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

Wester has had a history of bad policing, since he was hired in 2016. State prosecutors have dropped more than 100 cases where this infamous sheriff was involved in, after another camera footage was released last September 2018, which showed the officer allegedly planting drugs in yet another car. Included in the 100 dropped cases was Vann’s charge. Wester was fired immediately after this incident.

More than a dozen of Wester’s victims have filed federal lawsuits against him. Many of his chosen victims had prior criminal records due to drug possession, which made them easy targets. No one wold believe their world against a Sheriff’s word. All charges would likely stand if Wester had not been seen in the camera footages and he would still be patrolling the streets of Florida.

Watch the video below.

Florida Deputy Falsifies Meth Drug Field Test On Video, Then Arrests Man

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office uses the Nark II field test and a positive result for methamphetamines should turn the solution blue, but the test stays red as you can see beginning at 3:25. Of course, the results didn't stop deputy Zachary Wester from arresting Steve Vann

It has been reported that Starbucks, the giant coffee chain, has been installing needle disposal boxes in select locations so their customers can safely throw out their syringes. This is a response action after numerous employees have complained that they are exposed to needles and blood, and have numerous times, gotten pricked while taking out the garbage.

Last October, three baristas from a North Seattle branch had reported being pricked by hypodermic needles that are believed to have been used by drug users. Immediately after this incident, they had to take antiviral medication to prevent Hepatitis or HIV which nearly cost $2000 each and were paid for by either making a loan, or through credit. These baristas demanded their company to install locked needle disposal boxes in all branches where the drug use is known to be more common.

“My coworkers and I had all experienced needles left behind in the bathroom, store, and even in our drive-thru,” said an anonymous employee to Business Insider.

“My primary fear when I worked there would be taking out the bathroom garbages.

‘I was terrified that if I went to take the bag out, I would get poked by a needle I didn’t know was there.”

Because of these incidents, aside from the installation of needle disposal boxes, Starbucks is also considering removing trashcans from certain bathrooms, and replacing the garbage bags with a more heavy duty material to prevent needles poking out of the plastic.

According to a study made by the NYU Center for drug use and HIV Research, this problem isn’t unique to Starbucks and happens all throughout the food industry. Starbucks was the only one though to find blood and condoms in their bathrooms.

“These societal issues affect us all and can sometimes place our partners (employees) in scary situations, which is why we have protocols and resources in place to ensure our partners are out of harm’s way,” Starbucks spokesperson Reggie Borges told Business Insider. “I can’t emphasize enough that if our partners are ever in a position where they don’t feel comfortable completing a task, they are empowered to remove themselves from the situation and alert their manager.”

Do you make it a point to purchase from social enterprises?

Most billionaire companies give back to the people by building hospitals and curing malaria. But at the same time, there is a new wave of innovative entrepreneurs that are realizing they don’t need millions of dollars to make a difference in this world. They just need a crazy idea that would actually work, like selling socks, for example. These are businessmen, whom aside from the goals of making money, are concentrating more on helping people.

Source: https://i.ytimg.com/

Adam Long is part of the these new wave of entrepreneurs and the founder of Conscious Step Socks. Other innovators include Oana Toiu of Social Innovation Solutions which offers training and consultancy for social entrepreneurship, and Joshua Ross of Humanitix which funds global education from ticket booking fees. To them, having these social enterprises is their first step in entrepreneurship.

Long’s business philosophy is for socks to save the world, as every pair you buy donates money to different causes such as clean drinking water for a number of months, food for malnourished children, helping LGBTQ rights or even saving the the oceans.

So far, sock sales have provided 27,400 days of HIV/AIDS treatments, 80,775 months of clean potable water, 58,020 planted trees and 26,748 meals. Other than donating to social enterprises, they also support smaller businesses in third world countries such as India, where they have their socks made, and they make sure their employees are in ethical working conditions.

These out-of-the-box thinkers ask themselves peculiar and absurd questions, before actually starting up their own businesses… Can socks save the world? Can new entrepreneurs build their own future? Creative answers coming from out-of-the-box thinking is starting to generate impacts just as strong as the causes these ideas grew out from.

The ‘fetal heartbeat bill’ has recently been filed by a Republican Florida lawmaker Rep. Mike Hill, which would create severe restrictions of abortions all over the state.

The HB-235 requires all doctors to check for a heartbeat before attempting to perform an abortion.  If any heartbeat is detected and the doctor continues on with performing the abortion, they would be charged with a third-degree felony of up to five years in prison, probation and fines.

“Consider the rights of that unborn baby,” said Republican Rep. Mike Hill, who sponsored the bill. My oath said that I would protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Life being the first one.”

The new legislation will also change the definition of an “unborn fetus” to an “unborn human being,” which many physicians have disagreed on for decades. Planned Parenthood’s Kimberly Scott says that this is – “the most dangerous bill that we have seen for reproductive health in the Florida legislature.”

At present, abortion up to 24 weeks is currently allowed under Florida law, although a fetal heartbeat can usually be detected at six weeks, which can even occur before the woman actually knows she is with child. “They spend millions of taxpayer dollars in order to defend this type of legislation in the courts,” Scott said. “This legislation is not in effect anywhere because it is so blatantly unconstitutional.”

Similar laws have been passed in 10 other states last year, but none of them ever made it past the governors, legislatures and neither the courts. Planned Parenthood comments legal challenges would undoubtedly come up if this bill were to be passed. “There is a reason this bill has failed in many other states — that is because it is unconstitutional,” Florida’s Democratic Party chair Terrie Rizzo said in a statement. “We will fight to see that this legislation never becomes law in Florida.”
