Tuesday’s Blurbs …

I’m not unfriending Trump supporters on Facebook, assuming they haven’t already unfriended me. This is not meant as an indictment of those who choose to do so (you might not need that negativity in your life), I’m just not doing the same. Personally, I feel so accomplished that I’m not overly affected by people that disagree with me. After I’ve shaken my head in shock, I pretty much go back to thinking about my own awesomeness and remembering “I’m gone be alright!” So as long as you’re not posting, “Hang the nigger” memes, I don’t see why we can’t be civil. I’m perfectly fine with talking about something we have in common. Like delicious food. Everybody cares about delicious food.

It’s Super Tuesday. This time tomorrow, we’ll have a clearer picture of our political future. If ever I was meant to be knocked out and in a coma for a year, I’d ask for it to happen now, because its going to be a long 8 months and I wouldn’t mind missing the nonsense.

The effects of the Flint water crisis are kicking in. I can’t bear to read the articles. This is only the beginning of the issues that will result. A whole city of people, posioned, in America, and it appears that the no one will pay for this travesty but the innocent victims that paid their water bill. This happened in America. Not Brazil or Haiti. If you haven’t stressed about this at least once, when your bubble is finally burst, you’ll take it very hard.

Do you follow Shaun King? I really like that brother. His platform doesn’t change, it’s not particularly profitable for him, his entire life is on display, and he’s often threatened, yet his convictions don’t openly waver. It’s like how the world thinks of Bernie Sanders. You may not like his ideas, but you can’t really accuse him of lying. Those who’ve tried have been terribly discredited. Shaun King has integrity. I respect that.

Once upon a time the church ran the world, Native Americans were being slaughtered, blacks were in chains, the Japanese were interned, women couldn’t vote, and different races couldn’t marry (and so forth and so forth). Now the majority of people think these moments from our history are reprehensible. Understand that change is inevitable. Are you on the right side of change? Get there, or you’ll be that smiling idiot holding the chain around a black man’s neck that no one finds funny, today.

Geek out!
