Can’t we just all get along?

Progressives/Liberals are Getting Overly Defensive

Don’t back a mad dog into a corner and other minor aggravations

Democrats have backed themselves into a corner like rabid raccoons and rather than take medicine to get better, they behave more rabidly.

This happens on every level of human interaction between a liberal thinker (believer) and a conservative — from arguing about how to separate the recyclables to arguing about arguing. But the truth is they are just in a panic. Never before in adulthood have so darn many people been confronted with being just plain wrong. They can’t handle it. Public Schools did not prepare them for failure because everybody was accustomed to winning a participation trophy.

Best of friends can endure a little bit of shouting. But repeated incidents of character attacks and name-calling only bring down the accuser when there is no substance to what is being argued about.

Maybe that is why Congress is in a stalemate.

Our lives have devolved into meaningless crises between two well-meaning classes.

Okay. We can make jokes about it, but the continued degradation of basic human interaction in America is getting to a critical fever-pitch. Rabid dogs have not got a chance anymore. The TRUTH is getting the bigger headlines and the whining and well calculated sound bites of the opposition “left” turns inward upon itself.

What is the solution? We’ve tried ignoring it already. That produced ISIS and a nuclear Iran. We tried yelling about it — that produced Ron Paul and North Korea. What produced this immigration confusion? We Are All Human — Hate Has No Home Here (but also pays no taxes).

A Muslim woman in her new Honda Passport unloading a shopping cart FULL of housewares in Ypsilanti, Michigan on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 3:43pm. No children in sight. Was she shopping for the entire mosque?

Our “sensitivity issues” produced a windfall for previously under-challenged middle east countries to jump aboard the American Merry-Go-Round and take the US taxpayer for a spin.

On this very afternoon I was to pickup a prescription whereby another pleasingly frustrating interaction took place. (at least there was no yelling) I was standing in line at CVS Thursday (just after snapping this photo of the Muslim shopper) waiting to pick-up the scrip. Directly behind a Mexican woman in a leather jacket and her Son I waited patiently and chatted with the next woman in line. Ahead — he had blue hair and was wearing hand-made calf leather boots. He had earrings and a nose ring and tattoos. He was talking and joking in Spanish while his Mother feigned holding attention. (He did not know I understand the Spanish language)

When he was called to the register the girl had trouble explaining his medication to him because he did not understand English. Basically — after his Mommy translated — he authorized five automatic refills on Medicaid. Mind you — this is either a very old looking high school student OR maybe a street male whore because he surely does not labor for a living. I don’t think he even washes dishes by the look of his hands. PLUS he is not wearing a coat or jacket like EVERYONE ELSE because it is 51° outside. In fact he is wearing an anarchy style t-shirt.

My worst fear is that he goes back to his Mommie’s basement and suits up for November 4th. He is a typical immigrant taking advantage of the system and attacking the very society which has afforded him education, food, housing, luxury cell phones and a work-free way-of-life. He is ANTIFA.

But that’s another issue. Have a nice day.

To Prevent Alcoholism, A Shot Of Tequila Early And Often For Children, Doctors Say

Controversial new alcohol guidelines follow recommendation that infants also receive foods containing peanuts to avoid nut allergies

Originally Published Here: https://bullshit.ist/to-prevent-alcoholism-a-shot-of-tequila-early-and-often-for-children-doctors-say-3351631717a8#.5rqnuos9g

Tequila, gin, whiskey, or any other high-proof liquor will work with the new alcohol guidelines. Beer, served in larger quantities, also has the same alcoholism prevention effect.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) announced on Friday that parents should give babies a shot of alcohol regularly, starting at 6 months or even earlier, as a way to help prevent later alcoholism.

The recommendation comes on the heels of new guidance announced this week by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that children be fed foods containing peanuts to help avoid nut allergies as they grow older.

Dr. Banzer says one shot of hard liquor every other day for infants is plenty, and it does not have to be served on the rocks.

“We realize our new alcohol guidelines fly in the face of conventional wisdom,” said Dr. Mortimer P. Banzer, Director of the NIH, “but the research is clear — a shot of tequila, vodka, whiskey, even a pint of beer every other day, can help fortify a toddler’s body against the affects of alcohol addiction in adulthood.”

The new national health guidelines calling for parents to give their infants a shot of booze early and often has parents concerned, but Dr. Banzer was adamant. “Overloading the body with the offending addictive agent or allergen at a young age is precisely what works. There’s a window of time when the body is more likely to tolerate a shot of hooch than react to it, and if you can educate the body during that window, alcohol addiction is much less likely to occur. It’s counter-intuitive but parents needn’t worry. This is well-researched — it’s completely safe to do so.”

The positive conclusions on preventing alcohol addiction follow equally hopeful research that involves giving children foods containing peanuts to avoid later nut allergies.

Dr. Banzer said that a bigger threat may be parents joining their babies in doing a shot, “which could lead to irresponsible parenting.” But he added that a little impulse control should do the trick.

The NIH is also experimenting with giving newborns one cigarette a week as a way to prevent nicotine addiction, but results from that study, while promising, are not yet conclusive.

A New Axis Of Evil Or Something

Geesh. This guy Alexis Tsipras (Greece PM) is digging a moat around himself and his countrymen/women at an increasing pace.

It’s not like I go goose-stepping around Devos Place or anything – but I have to work smoothly with a very pleasant Greek woman and this makes it harder since I have German heritage.

It’s not just Germany hurting Greek feelings anymore (although the Germans are still evil, too).

Tsipras

The Greek government is now accusing Spain and Portugal of conspiring against it, as well. It’s a conspiracy, you see, because these two countries are willing to carry out the stringent reforms needed to get their economies going again. Greece clearly is not.

Greece’s leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras accused Spain and Portugal on Saturday of leading a conservative conspiracy to topple his anti-austerity government, saying they feared their own radical forces before elections this year.

How much longer is this show going to go on?

“Nach europäischen Maßstäben war das ein sehr ungewöhnliches Foulspiel. Das tun wir nicht in der Euro-Gruppe, das gehört sich nicht.”

Just What Has America Turned Into?

It’s almost a cruel joke.  A Race to see who can get nowhere without doing anything about anything and taking credit for it.  But that’s not all!  How about a Celebration, too?!?

Major portions of text and references are from The NY Times here:

“Never underestimate people’s desire to skip the journey and go right to the finish line.”

Let’s not take anything away (double entendre intended) from this marvelous example of modern marketing.  A time when we nearly worship the act of doing nothing and getting a bigger paycheck for it than the Joneses next door.  And drive a new Escalade while you’re at it on the way to pick up your new food stamp card.

How about all that action we are taking in the Ukraine?  How about the re-authorization of the Ex-Im Bank – a/k/a Corporate Welfare Program wherein the US Government guarantees you will not fail or your money back (the taxpayer money we don’t have) ??

But Wait!!  There’s More!!

You may have heard of Title XI.  The Internet Tax Freedom Act.  Public Law 105-277 enacted on 21 October 1998 under President Bill Clinton

We’re all winners.  That is The American Dream, isn’t it?   But we ARE doing something after all.  We’re thinking about taxing the internet.  The FCC will make a historic decision along with the data and analysis performed by existing private industry.  We are leaving this decision up to the (are you ready for this?) cable companies and providers to decide how much we are going to pay for MORE regulation and MORE for a S-L-O-W-E-R internet connection unless we sign on for a new “premium” package.  Absurd?  Is that not unlike allowing the cat inside the birdcage?

“All the fun, none of the commitment!”

Depending on one’s view, all of these issues, or races, are an existential comment on engagement and responsibility in America today; a critique or embrace of entitlement and self-importance; a celebration or rejection of couch-potato sloth; a chance for serious runners to shake off the midwinter doldrums with silly fun; or a sly enticement of non-runners, luring them to what may be the best part of a race — the after-party.

“We wanted to prove that with no hard work, no perseverance and no discipline, anyone can be a winner,” said Dan Babeu, 40, of Levittown, Pa.  They shot the starter pistol – took one step and blew the whistle.  Everybody tied and became a winner.
