This is the dawning of the Age of Darwinism
We humans have been through the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Age of Enlightenment, even the Age of Aquarius (you must remember that one) and now we are about to enter the Age of the Survival of the Fittest. That will happen when all the dim-witted anti-vaxers die and only the vaxxed are left to inhabit the Earth … but wait, there’s the climate to contend with. Ah, for the Age of Aquarius….

‘My child, my choice’ message is appalling
On our way back from vacation the other day, my husband and I passed a billboard on I-90 that I found appalling. It read: “My child, my choice. Stop vaccine mandates.”
My question: Picture yourself outside of a pediatric ICU and the attending physician comes out to inform you that your child is unresponsive and unable to be revived. What choice do you have then?
Learn before bashing ‘defund the police’
I am a junior at Scotia Glenville High School and I am shocked when I hear people misinformed about the world we live in and spreading false information that they get from the internet. What I’m referring to are the people who say that defunding the police is like giving permission to criminals to just kill people.
The problem is that you are trying to find a way to connect your idea and the ideas of the groups proposing it, instead of reading up on what they actually want. I have read up on the BLM movement and educated myself before I talk about the issue just in case I am wrong (something for some people to learn.)
Here is what I have learned.
- Defunding the Police is exactly what it sounds like, it is breaking down and disbanding the current militant-like police forces we have across the country to rebuild a new, more equitable system that does not decide the amount of response based on the physical appearance of the suspect.
And 2. The main idea for the new system is to have police only be needed for serious crimes and when doing so only use force when necessary, not when threatened just by the look of someone. The rest should be taken care of by a social worker or mental health worker. Read it, don’t assume it.
Media to blame for discord in U.S.
The media is tearing the United States of America apart. The radio, TV and newspapers are all part of it. Some say one thing and others say something else. Lots of people don’t know who to believe any more. This is like a civil war going on. It is affecting the listeners and the readers. They in turn tell others and it goes on and on — what a mess.
We have enough with the virus, the unrest with other countries in the world and the infighting in our government. This has to stop or else the answer will be something that you wish would not happen. It’s time for peace, kindness and understanding in our country or is this too much to ask for? We better look up to the heavens and ask for help as we need it really badly.
