Dems, media just keep bashing Trump
I have been patiently waiting for the news and opinions to shift from the daily Trump bashing to an equal focus on Biden bashing.
It looks like people just can’t get over Trump, and they are willing to overlook a litany of massive Biden boo-boos.
The June 10 Gazette included a column (“Senator Joe Manchin isn’t a statesman. He’s a fool”) that denigrated Joe Manchin.
A lone Democrat with a sense of right and wrong, and the Dems bash him because he won’t toe the line for their ridiculous efforts to undermine the political systems.
How dare he use logic and agree with Republicans. On the other hand, Joe Biden has done nothing but undo the highly effective policies Trump put in place and look like a senile grandpa character in a bad movie. Kamala is WAY over her head as VP. She might be able to handle being mayor of Mayberry, but wow, she has no clue what is needed as a national leader.
I suppose since there is nothing good to say about Biden or Harris, the media has no recourse other than to continue bashing Trump, just in case he runs again in 2024, and bashing any Republican who dares to open his mouth. Whatever happened to America First?
So much space in space. Is it all for us?
Now that I am in my “golden years”, I’ve been pondering the imponderable: So, the Earth is not flat and is not located at the center of creation.
The Earth is actually a sphere shaped rocky planet orbiting the sun. The sun is a very ordinary third generation star located in one of the outer spiral arms of the Milky Way galaxy.
The Milky Way galaxy is a typical galaxy containing some 200 billion stars, many or most with their own orbiting retinue of planets and other debris, The Milky Way galaxy is more than 100,000 light years in diameter.
All those stars, all that size, just to create a habitat for me and my fellow earthly critters.
It does seem a little overboard.
However, science has yet to definitively establish whether all those Milky Way stars spiral about a black hole at the center of the galaxy. Until it does, I will assume that they all spiral about me.
Now for what really has me puzzled: What are the other 1,000 billion (yes, that’s right, a trillion) galaxies for?
Why use derogatory names for cannabis?
I don’t recall The Daily Gazette ever referring to heroin as “scag,” or methamphetamine as “crank,” or whiskey as “booze,” or cigarettes as “coffin nails,” so why do you use the derogatory terms “pot” and “marijuana” (originally a slur on Mexicans) in reference to cannabis?
Help save the planet by not buying palm
Have you ever used palm oil? You have. Every day. It’s in many foods, cosmetics, and even animal feed.
What is palm oil? It’s a cheap source of high-quality oil from the fleshy fruit and palm kernel of the oil palm tree, used for cooking and eating and found in supermarkets worldwide.
The problem? All the world’s oil palms grow within 20 degrees of the equator, right in the rainforest, housing 80% of the world’s species.
Due to ravenous demand, every minute, an area the size of 300 football fields is destroyed to create palm oil plantations, all while rapidly accelerating climate change.
What can we do? Read labels. It’s that simple.
Choose products without palm oil, glycerin, and tocopherols. Avoid pre packaged snack foods as they use palm oil. Beware: A product that contains 40% saturated fat content almost always contains palm oil. Instead, choose products with 100% sunflower, olive, coconut, or canola oils. These choices will be healthier for you, too.
How to be impactful? Remember your power in the face of such devastation.
Every time you read labels and thoughtfully choose healthier products for you and the planet, you’re voting for environmental justice and a healthy world.
