It looks like the nation (The United States) is in an incredibly negative mood right now and I wonder how that has happened?
Could it be everything that has gone on in the past few weeks and months? The Covid-19, the monkey pox, the mass shootings at schools, the inaction of the government in doing anything to prevent gun violence in the country, the Republicans seeming to abandon the democratic ideal to embrace totalitarian authoritarianism ….could it be any of those things and a dozen more … the threat of nuclear confrontation with Russia over the Ukrainian mess ….any or all of the above?
I am not the least bit surprised that America is in an unprecedented negative mood — on top of all the things I just mentioned, now we have runaway inflation, people scrambling to make ends meet, children going hungry, the price of everything soaring out of sight …you name it and anyone can find something to be feeling negative about.
Johnny Depp (A movie star) and some woman named “Moss” are in court again today. I guess there is some kind of court case going on about one party defaming the other or something. I do know that in my opinion, this whole thing has become a kind of circus and I really don’t care the least bit about what is happening there or who it is happening with. But there must be a lot of people in America getting their jollies watching the antics connected to the trial because it is gaining a lot of media coverage. The good thing, as far as I am concerned, is that this too shall pass and in a few years I will wager that very few people will remember anything at all about it.
I either got bit by something or I am allergic to something because this afternoon, I noticed a slight itch in my right thumb and now, a few hours later, it is slightly swollen and reddish. If it gets worse by morning, I guess I will be forced to go to the doctor and get it looked at. I can’t imagine what it might be …maybe a small spider or a mosquito …. maybe something I ate or a food supplement that I took. I will just have to keep an eye on it and hope that it improves before it gets worse.
I became fascinated by an article I found on the Internet today talking about the soaring gas prices in the United States. Take a look for yourself and see if you are as fascinated with the article as I am …Read More.
I was supposed to be watching movies right now with my friend but as we were preparing to settle down to the evening’s entertainment, the telephone rang and my friend answered it. That has been quite awhile now since he answered the phone so I am suspecting a long conversation is underway. This is getting to be a nuisance, that damned phone …. if it isn’t constant robocalls from people wanting to sell something or wanting to scam us, it is interruptions at the most inconvenient times … the kinds of interruptions that can destroy an evening’s worth of good times.
I am feeling somewhat better about my blog today. I have already gotten 12 visitors today which is an improvement over what it has been. The exciting thing to me is that my blog is being indexed on Google now, a little more each day it seems, so perhaps in the near future more and more people will be able to find me and share in these little eccentric rants of mine. That is a good thing.
VACCINATIONS AND ANTI VAXXERS
Recently we have seen another uptick in Covid cases and it grabbed the headlines for awhile before the Texas school shooting happened. Now, of course, the increasing covid crisis has been replaced in the headlines by the more salable news about the mass shooting … which I can readily understand …
But the covid thing is still out there hospitalizing people … even people who have been fully vaccinated in some cases …. but there are still about 80 million people who been blinded by the anti-vaccination bullshit of a previous administration and who still steadfastly refuse to get themselves vaccinated. These idiots actually believe the lie that vaccinations are dangerous because they are experimental. I mean to say that several million people have already safely gotten vaccinated and the brainwashed idiots on the side of the anti vaxxers are still claiming that the vaccines are dangerous because they are experimental. I would say that with all the millions who have gotten their shots and benefited from the experience, the idea of “Experimental” has long since passed. But the anti vax crowd is still out there, refusing their shots and gleefully and ignorantly spreading the virus to whomever they can without giving it a second thought.
I’m going to go lie down now and take a nap.
