Things I did not know: I did not know that “2020 was going to be the year of the sober curious movement”. I don’t think it’s going to work out the way Ruby Warrington, author of “ Sober Curious: The Blissful Sleep, Greater Focus, Limitless Presence, and Deep Connection Awaiting Us All on the Other Side of Alcohol”, intended. Of course, I can’t see myself reading that book anyway. I have, on a number of occasions, gone for months without consuming alcohol. During those periods I met with friends, co-workers, and family. And totally understood why I drank.
Hold on to your bacon: Back in January I wrote about there being a pork shortage in China due to a virus in that country. ( China-Virus, redundant?) Actually, it was the African Swine fever and millions of swine in China, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Poland, Belgium and Bulgaria. Now they are closing meat handling plants across American because of contamination by Covid-19. Hang on to your bacon, it’s going to get worse.
Recent article I never thought I’d see: From the Federalist: “Five Reasons Jesse Ventura Is More Qualified Than Stacy Abrams To Be President”. The article makes it’s 5 points and is well written. I just thought I’d never see anyone be less qualified than Jesse.
It’s never been a level playing field: Several prayer videos recorded by two United States Army chaplains were removed from Facebook recently after a watchdog group complained about them. “The videos – made by Captain Amy Smith and Major Scott Ingram – were targeted by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), which complained the videos were ‘illicit proselytizing’ of Christianity.” Prior to their removal, the MRFF announced it had received complaints about the videos from eight active duty service members. I wonder, if thee were 9 people that “liked” the video’s, would Facebook keep them up? Or is it only complaints that count? Thing is, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. There are an estimated 1.3 million members in the U.S. Military, and these guys respond to 8. Sorry, this doesn’t sound like “freedom” to me.
This picture was attached to a story about the Chinesse military. Do they really have mini-skirted go-go booted forces?
Looks more like a group of armed Braniff stews, circa 1969.
