I HOPE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT SOLDIERS WHO GAVE ALL YESTERDAY As you enjoyed your family barbecues. It's wonderful that people show up to honor those who gave their lives serving this great nation. But did you know that there are families alive NOW who are still living with the pain of that sacrifice? You can help THEM! If you don't know about TAPS and all they do, please check them out here. If you can donate money, or time, or services, they can help get you to a family who needs you!
CBS SUNDAY MORNING NEEDS TO REMEMBER IT'S ROLE I love CBS Sunday Morning and have since the Charles Kuralt years. It's nice stories about nice people in nice towns I've never heard of. It's interviews with celebrities from some time ago looking back at their long careers. Occasionally it goes too political, and politics is always left leaning. Yesterday was such a day. Former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan was allowed to give his pitch for a school boycott by parents and students until gun control is enacted. It ticked me off so very much. WHY CBS SUNDAY MORNING, WHY?
THESE PROSPERITY PREACHERS MAKE ME ILL I don't think there is a thing wrong with being successful and making a lot of money. I think having a lot money allows you to use that money for whatever useful force of good in the world you choose. But these preachers out there preaching the Gospel of the Almighty Dollar are really distasteful to me. Look at this horrific quote:
"I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn't be riding a donkey," Duplantis says in the video. "He'd be in an airplane flying all over the world."
Blech. Just blech. This "preacher" is out hustling up donations for a $54 million jet for his own personal use. On behalf of Jesus, of course.
I'D LIKE TO BUY THE WORLD A COKE, BUT I NEED TO SEE ID FIRST As Coca-Cola enters the alcoholic beverage market for the first time in it's existence. Don't expect to see it here, as they are launching the lemon flavored shochu based carbonated beverage in Japan first.
DO WE NEED TO RAISE TAXES TO FIX ROADS? JON CALDARA SAYS HELL NO. And he makes the case that if simply spent our money on things government is SUPPOSED to spend money on, we'd have plenty to fix the roads all around the state. I think he's right, by the way, but don't tell Jon that, he'll become even MORE insufferable.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? Did you know a video game company is coming out with an active shooter SCHOOL video game? Yep. Watch this.
Does it remotely concern these morons that someone may be inspired or view this as PRACTICE for the real thing? Seriously? We've raised this generation on a steady diet of violence, and it's become more and more realistic, and yet, we scratch our heads when this generation shows violent tendencies? Kids get sent home from school from biting a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun, and yet we let our kids play this crap?
MORGAN FREEMAN FIGHTS BACK By calling out CNN's reporting on sexual harassment claims against him. This feels like an old dude whose behavior was perfectly acceptable (to men anyway) for decades who is now being told it wasn't. He's not taking it lying down. Read his response here.
STUPID FLAG BURNER STARTS WILDFIRE. The headline tell you all you need to know but the rest is here.
LOUD MUSIC IN RESTAURANTS ISN'T JUST ANNOYING, IT'S FATTENING Because a recent study showed that when there was very little chance another table could hear you order because the music was too loud, diners ordered more unhealthy foods. But if you were perhaps going to be judged on your order, healthier choices were made. I believe it.
AND NOW THE TRAILER FOR CHRISTOPHER ROBIN Because I like Pooh.
