Study shows using GPS while driving switches off parts of brain

Reading about a new study which has shown that part of the brain in people driving with the aid of GPS is switched off.

I cannot say for other people, but I know for myself the changes which occur via using GPS to navigate are extremely positive ones. Instead of being anxious and preoccupied with looking for street signs and where to turn and which way I’m heading, when using GPS I can just chill out and relax. I can actually be much more aware of the actual scenery around me and I’m generally in a much better state of mind.

Sometimes I like to have GPS on even when I know a route to where I’m going, because it just makes it that much easier to not have to worry about missing a turn or looking for signs. There’s something very reassuring about driving with GPS and knowing, for example, that two miles before you need to take an exit ramp off a highway, you will be notified.

This is wrong in so many ways

DA not considering immigration status in plea deals, says public defender

When Deputy Public Defender Kathleen Natividad’s client, who has lived in the U.S. for 20 years after arriving here from Guatemala, was arrested for a DUI in 2015 by San Francisco police, the case had the potential to get him deported.

An illegal alien from Guatemala who most likely cannot read nor write and probably cannot speak English either, should never have been able to nor allowed to enter the United States. The fact that he has been in the United States for 20 years itself is an outrage. That alone shows that we do not have an immigration system nor even a meaningful border. Any fuckwit came come in and stay in. But the story get’s better:

That’s because immigration law says that a DUI conviction can impact one’s status, according to Public Defender’s Office lawyers. With that in mind, the Richmond carpenter and father of three — who is undocumented — and his lawyer came up with a compromise: he would plea to a wet-reckless charge and agree to the same fines and punishment as a DUI.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. First of all, when this guy was pulled over for a DUI they should have realized he is in the United States illegally and that should have been it. At that point he should have been deported.

Second, what the fuck is a public defender – on the taxpayer dollar – defending this person? That is very wrong and that is basically a violation of the law. This is public officials acting in violation of federal law – conspiring to circumvent it.

Third – this fuckwit has three children. That’s outrageous. These fuckers come to the US and have babies at taxpayer expense. These people are illiterate and they are stealing jobs from US citizens. Often these are jobs that people on the margins use to survive, and while we have tent cities and huge problems with poverty and unemployment, our politicians are faciltating this.

With three kids that means 4 jobs stolen and countless other opportunities and public resources wasted. While American citizens are hard at working studying for advanced degrees and pursuing their careers, putting off having kids, these fuckwits enter the country and have kids – usually they intentionally have kids in order to anchor themselves here. It’s outrageous and the kids need to be deported as well. Society should not be providing incentive for this bullshit but should be stopping it!

But the prosecutor would not agree, and now the case is heading to trial, which could end in a conviction and possibly deportation because such an outcome would make him an enforcement priority for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Let’s hope there is sanity an he is deported as quickly as possible. Every dime of taxpayer money spent on this is an outrage and a waste.

Last year, a state law took effect that instructs prosecutors to consider the impacts of plea bargains on immigration status.

That is completely fucked. That basically amounts to the government of the State of California having been subverted by foreign governments, and failing in its basic function as a government to protect and serve its citizens. Every politician responsible for this is guilty of a crime and should be proseccuted.

What the fuck has happened to California. It’s government is fucking outrageous. It has been flooded with tens of millions of illegals and rather than stop it the government is facilitating it. This is a crime.

President Trump, please help. Send in federal marshals or the FBI and start arresting politicians. Make a clean sweep. And send all illegals back including their kids who are not US citizens.

What would California do if its Ponzi-scheme fails?

Cuts to affordable housing funding in President Donald Trump’s proposed budget would be devastating to California…

Bay Area Lawmaker Decries Trump’s Proposed $6B Cut To HUD Budget

… devastating for the unsustainable Ponzi-scheme which includes the state continuously being flooded with massive swarms of illiterate illegals and the funding of huge populations of lawless thugs who have 0 percent chance of participating meaningfully in the economy without major props …

This news elates me. Donald Trump is starting to clusterfuck California’s Ponzi-scheme from multiple angles. When people like Chiu scream you know good things are happening!
