The Friday Ketchup

Boo! Did I scare you? Don’t worry, I’m not actually a ghost, I’m just pretending to be one because its almost Halloween. Isn’t Halloween fun? All the folks getting dressed up like people they aren’t, going around knocking on people’s doors and taking their candy. Any other day of the year that’s going to get ya a double charge of identity theft and robbery. It sure is great they let those laws be relaxed for a night. Let the kids have some fun. Anyways, it’s the Friday Ketchup.

China announced on Thursday it was ending its one-child policy, which had been in effect since 1979. The rule was first introduced to curb population growth. I don’t understand how China sustained this policy for so long. One child at a time? That’s crazy! How can a country that big get away with only having one person under the age of 18 be around at once? I mean, whoever the kid is must get crazy spoiled for their first 18 years, and then all of a sudden, they aren’t that one kid anymore, but just another Chinese person. Then another kid is the one child. Seems awful silly to me. No wonder they did away with the policy.

On Wednesday, the United States military lost control of an unmanned surveillance blimp over Pennsylvania, where it downed power lines and stayed in the air for over 100 miles before falling to the ground. Tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians lost power due to the incident.

Stuff like this is why I don’t trust “unmanned” vehicles. There’s just not enough accountability. Whose going to stop them if something goes wrong? Not the nonexistent pilot, that’s for sure. Heck, I don’t even like roller coasters because there’s no one driving the dang things. Besides, all these automated crash machines are taking jobs away from hard-working Americans like you and me. Never send a unmanned vehicle to do a manned vehicles job; that’s what I say.

Well, I hope you all are nice and caught up now. That was the stuff to get caught up on. Now you can be an informed citizen ready to take on the world. See you next week.
