Political ramblings.

Easter be here..

Holy crap, March went fast! April already in a matter of hours!

So news items from last week? Maybe this time I’ll make into bullet points.

  • Far Cry 5 released and it rocks! Peppers and all!
  • Spring came and went… (snowed last night again and more to come)
  • Spent a few days in pain due to gut-rot…   NO DETAILS NEEDED
  • Officially sick and tired of constant bickering politicians and fake news. (Seek the truth yourself don’t trust the news.)
  • Seems like limiting my FB presence years ago was a good move 🙂
  • I have developed a sore foot…  burning feeling on right hand side of foot.
  • Youtube is going off on the loonie liberal cliff…
  • I’m think I’m having a bout of missing my roots… miss the old country and folks from there. – It’ll pass.
  • Easter is here and I have yet to eat a chocolate bunny!!!!!! DISASTER! 😁

While we are at it banning things.

!!! BREAD IS DANGEROUS !!!

Research on bread indicates that:

1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.

5. Bread is made from a substance called “dough.” It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!

6. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and osteoporosis.

7. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

8. Bread is often a “gateway” food item, leading the user to “harder” items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

9. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

10. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

11. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.

12. Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling.

In light of these frightening statistics, it has been proposed that the following bread restrictions be made:

1. No sale of bread to minors.

2. A nationwide “Just Say No To Toast” campaign, complete celebrity TV spots and bumper stickers.

3. A 300 percent federal tax on all bread to pay for all the societal ills we might associate with bread.

4. No animal or human images, nor any primary colors (which may appeal to children) may be used to promote bread usage.

5. The establishment of “Bread-free” zones around schools.

A new pad enters the household.

Alright… it’s nice, it really is nice. The screen is slightly bigger and the speed is slightly faster. It has a handy new foldey keyboard and a stark white gleaming pencil. Is it all worth it so much from the iPad Air 2 i had that Barb wanted from me? Nope. I at this point would it makes sense to buy anything else but this 10.5″ screened workhorse the answer is no. But is it really that much better from the previous version? No, its not.

Today its Presidents’ Day and have a day off, Aaaand we will spend it a funeral. Barbs very nice auntie passed away. Rest In Peace.

Let’s see what else is new? Both Charlie and myself got de-furred. He needed it more than I did. My good friend Les went thru hos last round of chemo and is still standing and kicking my butt in backgammon.

Not much else is new, winter still here freezing our asses off. Liberals try to take our guns away, not understanding that its the person holding the gun that is the problem not the tool. But what else is new from those tools.

#MeThree -said the lawyer.

It’s gotta suck being in the “dating world” these days.

I mean first of all if you are so called “CIS-Male” and of European decent in the mid 20’s it gotta be absolute hell.

According to the current political climate you cannot be offended against. You are male therefore you cannot be sexually attacked or offended, you have “white privilege” and that can be just about anything. And if you are straight your mere existence is offending to all the myriad of “genders” out there.

On top of that if you dare to approach a person of the opposite gender at say a drinking establishment and venture to strike up a conversation in order to get to know the lady in question be aware! Be very aware!! If your approach is not seen in favorable light you are either assaulting and raping her just by being in the same room, or at least have groped her and your details will be posted everywhere by this #metoo supporter in hopes of ruining your career and get you fired and make your life even more miserable. All because your pick-up line sucked.

This goes on and on…. and gets worse and worse….

What will the future bring? I know sanity is too much to hope for.

Update:

Since writing this post I have seen two different articles online eluding to same conclusions.

The NewYork Times article about Unintended Consequences of Sexual Harassment Scandals and payscale.com article about Unexpected Consequences: How #MeToo Might Actually Hurt Women
