It’s a nuclear meltdown!
Apparently, it’s the end of the world because Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed. It’s not, and it’s really just a very small portion of the population that’s tweeting that he should be murdered. they are loud and they are obnoxious, but there’s only a small number of them.
Meanwhile, Conservative activists are just as stupid. Stop with the post about Justice Ginsberg “forgetting” the 14th amendment. She didn’t, and if you had actually watched the video instead of just reading the headline you would know that not only did she NOT forget it, you don’t know the relevant text word for word either.
Stormy Daniels brought her “act” to Sacramento. In addition to the usual collection of creepy old dudes giving her money to “dance” for them, half of the audience was women. They came (Phrasing!) to “support” her for having been paid for having sex with the President when he wasn’t the President.
A new United Nations report says that we must double our efforts to combat Climate Change. In Five Billion years nobody will care.
It’s reasonably clear to me that there is no way that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Jeff Flake’s flaking has pretty much sealed the fate of the nominee. So where do we go from here?
My phone rang twenty-two times yesterday. One – just one – of the calls was legit. Before you ask, yes, I am on the Do-Not-Call registry, but it appears that the telemarketers, scammers and bill collectors don’t actually care about that and they have found a way to bypass it anyway. By next year, in strategic terms 2020, but it’s closer than you think – fully 50% of the calls you receive could be from robocall scammers.
in Alabama, a local Preacher has opened a new Dinosaur attraction where he explains that the creatures were “900-year-old lizards that never stopped growing.” He goes on to call evolution “the dumbest religion ever” which is surprising, but also not surprising. Cami and I found ourselves in a discussion on Sunday that related to this attitude. Again, I am not an atheist, I am a guy with questions. Lots and lots of questions…
The 55th Birthday was quite the adventure, so was the day after! Between work and Ben, it derailed everything pretty quickly, although I am now able to sit down and record.
There are going to be some changes in the way I do things soon. Facebook does what it does, and I recognize it’s good points. For all that, there are things that I don’t like about it. So, rather than gripe and point fingers, I’m just going to change how I do things. If you want to be a part, great! If not, You don’t have to be!
See how that works?
So with the Kavanaugh thing, it really leads to one major concern for me – why is it that we can no longer have questions? Somehow we have reached a point where instead of answering the questions, we call the questioner names and demand acquiescence. What is odd to me is that once upon a time, G-d Himself was asked some questions. He chose a different way of dealing with them, maybe we could learn something from Him?
