Robots Read News – About Humans in Metal Cages

If your firewall is blocking the image, see it on my Twitter page here.

image

On an unrelated topic…

When I wrote God’s Debris in 2001, I thought it would be a decade or more before it caught on. The zeitgeist wasn’t ready, but it was heading in that direction. So I engineered the book to have a time-release trigger. (That was literally my plan.) Looks like we’re on schedule. It is number one in its sub-category.

image

And what triggered the time release?

Donald Trump.

I did not predict Trump specifically, but I did expect society to start realizing that humans do not use reason to make decisions. (That’s the lesson I learned in hypnosis class in my twenties.) Trump is demonstrating – via his powers of persuasion – that free will is an illusion, at least for some voters, and the impact of that realization will change the world in subtle but important ways. Once you let go of your certainty about your view of reality, God’s Debris is a fun read. Or so I hoped when I wrote it.

The sequel, The Religion War, published in 2004, also has a time-release trigger. I designed the trigger to activate when three specific things happened in the world: 

A caliphate forms in the Middle East. (check)

There is talk of walling off the caliphate. (check) 

Terrorists use hobby-sized drones for attacks on U.S. soil. (soon)

In the book, a conservative leader named Cruz rises to power in the United States and gains control of the military. That part seems unlikely. Right?

That’s what makes it fiction.

Georgia Woman Arrested For Locking Special Needs Kids In Cages

Stephanie Stone, a 34-year-old mother, was one of two people arrested for leaving her special needs children inside makeshift cages in Murray County, Georgia. Stone and another woman kept her 11-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter locked away for unknown days at a time, and there were drugs on the premises as well.

Local outlet WXIA reported on the case, which broke on Thursday and was announced by authorities on Friday. Stone and another woman, Wana Sue Redfern, were both charged with false imprisonment and cruelty to children. Stone was slapped with an additional charge of possession of methamphetamine. The children were nearly not rescued, but a persistent call by an anonymous caller helped secure their freedom and bring justice to the women.

More from WXIA:

Ninety miles north of Atlanta in Murray County, the sheriff’s office made the horrific discovery when they went to a home for a welfare check.

Thursday at 11 a.m., Murray County deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a child had been left alone. The deputy was met at the door by a girl and an adult female. Since the deputy saw there was adult supervision, he left.

Later that day, the same personal called 911 asking for help again. This time, the deputy went inside and found an 11-year-old boy with special needs in a makeshift cage. Another child, an 8-year-old girl, was also found at the home.

The child’s mother, Stephanie Stone and Wanda Sue Redfern have been charged with false imprisonment and cruelty to children. Stone was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.

GBI Special Agent Greg Ramey, one of the officers that arrived at Stone’s residence, found the boy in a case that was described as “twin bunk beds that were of metal construction” and Ramey added there were “bars that he could not get out of.”

Ramey said that the beds stayed together with the use of zip lines and other types of metal.

Law enforcement officials say a second cage was found inside the home, which was assumed to be for the girl. Georgia’s Division of Children and Family Services were familiar with Stone and her children, this after a case was closed regarding the family just this past May.

Stone is being held on a $ 27,500 bond. Redferen is being held on a $ 25,000 bond.

Sports News in Brief: No One Seems To Know Guy Leaning Against Batting Cages Giving Hitting Advice

MADISON, WI—Saying that he is constantly offering words of encouragement and various pointers on maintaining a proper stance, sources confirmed Tuesday that no one at Damen’s Sports Complex appears to know a middle-aged man leaning against the batting cages giving people hitting advice. “At first, I thought the kid in the cage was his son, but he left a while ago and this guy is still standing there telling people to choke up on the bat and step into the ball more,” said local 24-year-old Anthony Wilson, adding that the stranger has enthusiastically clapped his hands and shouted “There you go, nice cut!” whenever a batter has made good contact with the ball. “Whoever he is, he definitely doesn’t work here, but he doesn’t seem to be waiting in line to bat either. He kept telling me to rotate my hips more when I swing and …

Nic Cage Wears A Shirt With Nic Cage’s Face On It At A Guns N’ Roses Concert

In the fallout of the Macaulay Culkin-Ryan Gosling inception, Nicolas Cage has returned to bless the Internet once again by wearing a shirt featuring the only person equal to his glory: Nicolas Cage.

Guns N’ Roses Instagrammed a photo of the “One True God” from their show in Las Vegas on Saturday night, June 8, hanging out with Andrew Dice Clay (obviously). To top of the shirt, Cage is rocking a sweet cowboy hat and leather pants, whilst drinking from a goblet and using a cane, because why not. The band also posted a second picture of Cage joining them on stage for a final bow.

The day is officially over. We all can go home now.
