So, … where are YOU from? A common question that people ask you when you are first introduced. It is a simple way to get to know someone better. When someone is of the same place, chances are you have a lot in common. All my life I have always been telling people that I am from Vietnam, but I was adopted into an American military family at 4 months. Well imagine MY surprise when I decided to take a DNA test to discover my roots. Turns out I am NOT 100% Vietnamese. Wait, what? Yep, the proof is in the science. I am only 45.6% Vietnamese. Not even HALF. Yep, I am blown away. Looks like all those years of Asians calling me “White Asian”, with 31.4% of European lineage — they weren’t so far off. Yep, looks like my dad wasn’t Asian after all. How crazy is that? When you are adopted you don’t have any medical history. You are just out of luck. Not anymore.
So initially I looked up 23 and me, which is heavily advertised for DNA testing. However, this other company, CRI Genetics, does a plethora of detailed information that tells you more than your own doctor. And these tests don’t lie. You are not self diagnosing yourself like you normally do with WebMD. You are getting actual real scientific data that proves YES or NO that you do or do not have a medical condition. Like for instance, I had no idea that I am lactose intolerant. So all those hot milked frothy Starbucks laced with hormonal milk literally were making me sick. And did you know that 90% of the world can’t stomach milk, except Europeans for some strange reason. Although I have never had a dairy issue, other than drinking hot milk. Maybe since I am part European that has something to do with the genetics. The report also told me that I do NOT have a sensitivity to gluten. Yay me. I knew it all along. I had a friend who self diagnosed herself as a celiac patient and thus refused to eat “gluten” or any carbs. Except you can get carbs from other things that don’t have gluten. It is kind of scary that all it takes is 2 mouth swabs of spit and you can literally find out all kinds of genetic DNA information. Turns out that you inherit all kinds of things from your ancestors. Most parents worry that they will pass a genetic medical condition to their children. So if you are curious and want to investigate even further. The site is CRIGenetics, and don’t buy it right away. Look around the site, and wait for the pop up to give you the 50% discount.
After you purchase they mail you a kit, you swab it and about 2 weeks later your results show up on their website. I found out my lineage 50 generations. I also opted for the additional “Who might you be related to that is famous” report. I should get it in a few days. If anyone cool shows up I will be sure to share it with y’all.
A Tough Conversation “What If”
What do you think is the toughest conversation you have ever had? Think about it for a minute. I’ll wait.
Have you ever had to tell someone they are going to die? Have you had to fire someone? Have you ever had a message come to you … from GOD? Hmm, that is a good question. Some people have never talked to God, or even tried to listen to God. Wait, what? Yep, it is true. How do I know? Well, God told me. There. He told me that for some souls, the ONLY time they ever once think to talk to God, is when their life is about to terminate. Which is super sad. You know what is also super sad? People who don’t believe in ANY God. Yeah, you might know of some of those people. What if I told you that when their time came to transition, they changed their tune and all of the sudden said they believed in God? But what if … God wasn’t there to believe in them. Which God? Last I checked there were over 4300 different religions, each with their own God. What if all of those Gods are of the same “one” god?
God said he doesn’t play judge and jury. There are just too many trillions of souls. God also said that many souls, who are not his followers, say he will save them from the virus. What if God said that Life and Death is a quid pro quo. You have to do so many deeds, actions, or gestures to make it to the next life. What if … death, like in Final Destination is just cleaning up loose ends? What if a shitload of those people dying are actually bad people? The prisons are infected also, and what if God said those people in there actually shouldn’t be there, or anywhere? What if God just let the Angels of Death do whatever they want? God gave us a savior. Once, and he was crucified. So unless Jesus has magically appeared on the earth and hasn’t shown himself to us, WE are going to have to save ourselves.
You can start by getting the flu shot, like me. I got mine yesterday at Kaiser. No side effects. It didn’t even hurt. So I also wanted to point out that most states, like Nebraska and Colorado — where my friends and family reside, there is still a rather low vaccination rate. Like only 67% have the shot. Which means 1 in 3 are potential hosts. With rates like that, you are definitely going to see an uptick in deaths. Almost every retail establishment has employees out for COVID and every major airport has infected staff. TSA are impacted the most, and as you know, they all chose NOT to take the vaccine. Survival of the fittest are those who are current on all their vaccinations.
And a new virus, the Nipah virus has shown up in India. There is no cure or vaccine.
Wii FM? No, not Nintendo Wii. It actually stands for “What’s In It For Me”. That is what is going on in the economy right now. What appears to be a labor shortage is actually a WIIFM syndrome on a national level. Pretend for just a moment YOU are the unemployed person who was working that crappy minimum wage job that for whatever reason, … CLOSED and furloughed you. Sure you “could” go get another help wanted job, but it would be another sucky job with shitty customers yelling at you for whatever stupid reason they felt you were their slave. Sounds enticing doesn’t it? Oh wait, it gets better. There is an outbreak at almost every place you apply, and you know this because you asked around. It isn’t hard to find out that the staff has COVID.
The reality is there isn’t a labor shortage, what there is … is the owner of whatever company is short staffed is a greedy son of a bitch and doesn’t want to share in the profits. Wait, what? Yep, you heard me right. Think about it for just a second, the LARGEST richest companies in the world, … let’s use Amazon AND Walmart as an example, … are fucking greedy bastards. WHY should ONE man hold so much wealth? Why should ONE family control the retail market? WE, as consumers continue to support them with our voting dollars. If all the people in the world, stopped shopping at their company, they would go out of business. Look at what COVID did to thousands of businesses. No customers, no company. Cruise to Italy anyone? Walmart could afford to pay every single employee $50k a year and it wouldn’t even feel a dent in the profits. And why do they need billions and billions of dollars for ONE family? That’s right, they don’t.
You have a choice. You can go to a small business owned by a single individual and help them out. You can stop your Amazon Prime membership. But you won’t. Because the reality is those two companies provide a good and service at a cost effective, cheaper price. It has already been proven by many companies that have increased employee salaries that they have a decrease in employee turnover, and an increase in job satisfaction. Competition for good or great employees is going to be at an all time high. Employers would rather steal the competition than to hire an unemployed laid off employee.
Today is the official day that the extra unemployment bonus ends. That means there will be a lot of people forced to go back to work. I know of a ton of folks who kept saying “Why should I go work for less money when I can sit on my ass and play video games all day long?” Right, exactly. That is the mentality of the unemployed unhirable American. They don’t want to work. They want to live off the government and get free handouts. The problem with that is when you do that, then there is no incentive for our younger generation to educate themselves and get better jobs. You know, the ones that require an actual associates or bachelors degree. Considering the number of students who are not vaccinated and not wearing masks, we will see how many can actually make it four years without dropping out or dying. First year freshmen (and women) have the highest dropout rate. I can think of a dozen friends who started and then never finished. And then they wonder why they are stuck in a low paying, labor intensive job. Well, we all make choices and sometimes those choices are not the best financially.
If you ARE looking for a better tomorrow, dust of that resume, activate your LinkedIn Premium membership for a month and add something IMPRESSIVE to your current job/position. Let your network know you are looking for a new challenge, and let THEM check out their company job listings. You never know, your next opportunity could just be a phone call, text or update away.
And some updated numbers from the New York Times.
DAILY AVG. ON SEPT. 5
Isn’t that kind of interesting? 40 million cases. And kind of weird that it is all 4’s. Of course we all know that number is extremely under reported as we know that there are millions and millions of infected people who won’t even get tested. Have you noticed how all the testing drive up centers are closed yet the number of infections is exponentially higher than it was 2 years ago. As I told my mother, the vaccine is not a cure, it is more like a flu shot on steroids. Like the flu shot, it is preventative measures, just like a mask and a condom. Don’t like the outcome of wearing either, well, you might get pregnant, COVID and both of you might die.
And on another depressing note, did you know that over 750k abortions happen every year in the United States. That number actually is higher, as I couldn’t get recent numbers. The church of Satan calls those “human sacrifices” for their church, so they like abortions. As much as I hate to admit it, I would have to agree. As a pro LIFE advocate, I think life should be cherished, not disposed of because it is “inconvenient” for someone. I personally have interfered with 2 ladies who were faced with aborting a fetus. In BOTH cases they were so thankful I was there to convince them to do the right thing. Both of those little girls grew up to be wonderful women, … thanks to me. Hey, I’m an earth angel. That’s what I do. I save lives.
Imagine just for a moment, my biological Vietnamese mother felt having 2 more babies was too much for her. A widowed mother, alone with no income, … so she decides to just “take care of it.” Well, then I wouldn’t be here. Yeah, … I hope that has an impact on any lady out there who thinks that a baby is too much of an inconvenience. Get with the program and use some damn birth control.
It is officially Monday, Labor Day in the United States, which means new episodes of Billions, Evil, Naked & Afraid, and Naked & Afraid love series are all available for your viewing pleasure. I’m a fan of all 4 and gotta say, Evil is pretty wicked. Gossip Girl reboot was good, but it was no Serena & Blair.
Okay so I have been seeing all kinds of reference that Texas is now a Taliban type of environment. I also have seen people referencing getting the shot to the same tune as the Jewish holocaust. I know right? WTF. NOT EVEN CLOSE. I did watch an interview with a Planned Parenthood in Texas where the doctor said he was seeing 60 women a day for abortions and now he only sees … ready? THREE. So 57 women are going to soon be mommys! Yes I know there are tears streaming down their sad faces. I told you, cry me a river because that is what is going to happen. I have also seen many references to illegal abortions, primarily a coat hanger reference, which what was done decades ago when abortions were illegal.
There are also a lot of groups that feel that men should be given involuntary vasectomies. Which if you think about it, is a good and bad idea. Sure there won’t be any unwanted pregnancies, but there will be a lot of rape that goes on. Just no proof that it actually happened. Maybe one day guys will wake up and realize they don’t need to have the ability to reproduce. After the snip things still work, they still have sex, and in fact, some of them actually end up having more sex. I know of a lot of married couples that the daddy got snipped after baby number 2. If they do it right after the baby is born it is practically free. Like I said before it really isn’t about “My body right”, it is about someone controlling your rights. Women can get the morning after pill and have for a long time. Some women have these little sticks put into their body to trick them into thinking they are pregnant so they can have all the sex they want and never get pregnant. So if you are a guy, your insurance should cover a vasectomy, which is completely reversible if you one day decide you want an 18 year financial emotional commitment. And honestly guys, have you actually thought about realistically having kids one day? Like, a boy and a girl? What are their names? What are the activities that you want to do with that little money drain? Do you like shitty diapers and having no sleep? A screaming unreasonable little loudspeaker that won’t shut up … ever? Hmmm… then maybe planting your seed isn’t for you. If you don’t want to raise it or have any part of raising it, then having kids isn’t for you. Just saying. Someone has to say it. Women talk about their one day family and all their kids secret baby names. Guys, … eh, not so much. Before you ruin someone’s life and their kid, think about it carefully. Get that vasectomy, never tell your girlfriend/wife until you both decide it time to carry on the family lineage, and just reverse it. It is an outpatient surgery and she doesn’t even have to know. In the meantime, have all the awesome hot sex you can and never worry about a paternity test.
It is officially LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!! In Denver a Taste of Colorado is going on downtown and the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival is taking over Cherry Creek north. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
Die In Peace
This is a picture of death. The reason Nebraska looks so awesome is they stopped reporting in most of the state back in May. Although if you drill down in the map you can discover how many are infected at their major hospitals. What you can also see in this map, which you can’t see without a paid subscription, is a national map with every hospital, how many ICU beds available and how many COVID patients they have. I posted on Facebook some scary stats that are happening in Nebraska — Kearney my hometown. Like, The University of Nebraska at Kearney has 520 cases of COVID. Yet, the Kearney Daily Hub reports 4 cases. Hmm…who do you think is lying? Yeah, I think the Hub is lying. I trust the Times. They are getting their numbers from the healthcare facilities. Nebraska also is not doing any testing so they wouldn’t know if they wanted. I personally think that 520 college students infecting 2-10 people each will ultimately end very badly. I asked my mom how many simultaneous classes are running at the college? Not 500, which means that in every single classroom, dorm hall, sorority and fraternity there is an active case of COVID. Every person he/she talks to gets it and passes it on. I’m kind of a visual guy so seeing a red map of people infected really hits home.
So if you are from Colorado I’ll tell you what the media ISN’T telling you. Here are some stats from our colleges:
University of Colorado Boulder
Colorado State University
Fort Collins, Colo.
University of Denver
Metro State College Denver, Colo 240 cases
Home Depot in Thornton has an outbreak 101 employees. Denver International Airport has over 300 employees across their different positions. The luggage ramp guys have it. Since they are outside they aren’t wearing masks and sneeze or cough on your luggage before it lands down the luggage ramp. Was it YOUR luggage? Did you touch your face after grabbing your suitcase? Walmart distribution center in Loveland, 125 employees. Yep, your whatever you bought might have been touched by one of those employees. In-N-Out burger in Aurora — 74 employees test positive. Yep, your hamburger might have given it to you. And look out American Furniture Warehouse in Thornton AND Englewood. 73 & 65 employees testing positive. Oh, did you touch that couch that someone coughed on and didn’t sanitize? Kings Soopers in Commerce City, 71 employees. Did you shop there? Sorry, store not sterile. The fancy Broodmoor hotel in the Springs, 64 employees. Yep, your room not sterile. Sorry. Top Golf in Centennial, 54 employees. Oh you got it from your unsanitized golf club? Darn. So when unvaccinated individuals wonder where they got it or how they got it, YOU have an uncanny idea. MAYBE these people were out in public at ONE of the above establishments and got the virus there. We still don’t know how long the virus can live on a package. We can’t SEE it so many are careless. If it led a trail of blood like Ebola you would be wiping everything down with Clorox.
You don’t have to hide in your cave like a hermit. But you DO need to wipe shit down, wash your hands, and don’t trust that ANY piece of anything is safe until you cleaned it. EVERY single person dying in ICU say “I don’t know how I got it. I was so careful.” Nope. They weren’t. But you can be. And according to abc news, 204,000 children contracted the virus in one week. Scary. Colorado is testing kids for free in classrooms, unlike Nebraska who discourage testing.
Have you heard any of these responses from the general public? Or are YOU one of these people who are telling other people some of these answers? Well shame on you. YOU are not smarter than a PhD. Most of my readers don’t even have a college degree, and some might have a community college degree in nothing related to science. Yet THEY are the experts. Wrong. For the record, I saw this comic from Occupy Democrats and since not everyone is a democrat, I really felt everyone should take note of it. Does it hit home yet? Have you lost someone yet? I think I might have. I have a friend who refuses to get the shot. He claims he got COVID the first time around (although he can’t prove it) and if it comes around again “God will protect him”. Really? How about the 637,066 Americans that thought God would protect them? God doesn’t play judge and jury when it comes to people dying from a disease. God is the creator, not the destroyer. Lest we not forget that there is evil in this world. Some say that someone very evil created this virus in a lab. Well that is also very possible. Anything is possible right?
And here are some stories from those who refused the vaccine. Courtesy of Occupy Democrats.
“Andre Jacque is a Wisconsin Republican lawmaker who is a vehement anti-masker and anti-vaxxer. On Wednesday August 18 he attended a hearing, unvaccinated and maskless.
On Wednesday August 25 he was fitted for a mask while lying in a critical care bed with a breathing apparatus rammed down his throat.
He’s not dead — yet.
Andre is 40. He has a wife and six children.
John Pierce is a lawyer who represents 18 of the January 6 Anti-American Insurrectionists. He represents more insurrectionists than any other single lawyer, specifically cultivating the cases out of a cultish devotion to Trump and a harbored false belief that Trump “won.”
He also has represented Rudy Giuliani in Rudy’s flagrant Ukraine lobbying scandal; Tulsi Gabbard in her meritless suit against Hillary for “defamation;” and he briefly represented Kyle Rittenhouse.
On August 17, Lawyer Pierce tweeted: “The entire 82nd Airborne couldn’t make me get an experimental government vaccine stuck in my arm.”
A week later on August 25 he was scheduled to be in court for a hearing on one of his insurrectionist clients.
But Lawyer Pierce was not in court.
His partner informed the court:
“Your Honor, Mr. Pierce is in the hospital, we believe with Covid-19, on a ventilator, unresponsive.”
John Mark Pierce is 49.
Missouri Republican state representative Sara Walsh said she and her husband Steve did not get vaccinated because the vaccine only had provisional FDA approval and she and her husband had been “healthy throughout the pandemic.”
This morning, Sara, a candidate for Missouri’s 4th congressional district, posted:
“Steve’s visitation and service is tomorrow and today’s tribute to my beloved Steve Walsh is a recollection of memories of Broadway shows, songs, and faith. Steve loved the Beatles and Motown. Steve was and always will be my Prince Charming.”
It was a lengthy post, ending in a plea for people to accept Jesus as their Savior, even though Jesus refused to save Steve from Covid.
She did not beg people to get vaccinated, even though vaccinations do keep people from dying with Covid.
Steve Walsh was 63. He died of Covid on August 19 leaving behind his 42-year-old wife.
Lisa Steadman and her husband Ron were diagnosed with Covid in early August. Lisa finally had to go to the hospital but the big man of the house stayed home to brave and battle Covid alone.
Lisa called Ron every day. On Sunday August 8 he told her his phone was not holding a charge. On Monday August 9 she couldn’t get him on the phone and finally sent the police to their home for a wellness check.
The police called back and told her they had found him out walking the dogs and “he only has a cold.”
The unvaccinated couple did not talk on the phone on Monday after the police wellness check or on Tuesday or on Wednesday morning August 11 before Lisa was released from the Winter Haven Florida hospital after an eight-day stay.
At home, Lisa opened the door.
RON? Where are you Ron?
She heard the dogs barking, all in the bedroom.
Slowly she opened the bedroom door.
And there was Ron.
Lisa says they “had agreed they would wait longer to get the vaccines because I rarely get sick and Ron always wore his mask and stayed away from large crowds and both of us thought the vaccine came out so fast. How could they have done so much testing on it? I was just cautious about it.”
Ron Steadman was 55. He leaves behind his 58-year-old wife and three dogs.
Following a week-long church camp, Lydia Rodriguez and her unvaccinated husband Lawrence and several other family members tested positive for Covid.
Lydia felt she could fight it off because she was strong and healthy and “didn’t believe in vaccines.”
Lawrence died first.
Suddenly Lydia thought the vaccine might be a good idea.
But vaccines will do no good in the ICU.
Her only choice was to be intubated.
She never woke up.
She died August 16.
She was 42; he was 49. Their collective foolishness orphaned four children.
Phil Valentine was a conservative radio talk-show host on WWTN in Nashville Tennessee.
He was an ardent anti-vaxxer.
Until he got Covid.
Between his diagnosis and hospitalization, he changed his tune and encouraged listeners to get vaccinated.
But it was too late for Phil.
In his ICU bed he told his brother his biggest regret was not being a vocal vaccine advocate.
Phil Valentine was 61 years old. He died of Covid a week ago on August 21.
Dick Farrell was a conservative radio talk-show host on WPTV in West Palm Beach Florida.
He was an ardent anti-vaxxer.
Until he got Covid.
From his hospital bed he texted about the vaccine to a friend of 20 years:
“Get it! This is no joke. I wish I had gotten it!”
But it was too late for Dick.
Dick Farrell was 65 years old. He died on August 4 of “severe damage” caused by Covid.
637,066. That is the number of COVID19 deaths as of today, according to the Times. That number will just increase as fans fill stadiums, event halls and banquet receptions. If you have the shot please be dedicated in washing your hands, stop touching your face and just chill out at home for a little bit longer. Yes, I know you are bored. Yes I know you want to see your friends. We all do. But we also want to live. What point is it to see/do that “thing” that exposed you to the virus? Exactly. Nothing is worth dying for right now. And in case you haven’t turned on any media, we pray for all the souls that will be affected by hurricane Ida. They say it will be the worst since the 1800’s. Category 4. I predict it will make Katrina look like his little sis. First the south is devastated by the virus, and now another natural disaster is going to wreck havoc on their lives, … again.
I was reminded by one of my guides that time works differently for those who have passed on. So those baby souls are perfectly content at where they are until it is time for the next transition. So in other words, they can just sit there until the world is ready for them.
The New York Times
American Express platinum members can take advantage of a new perk, a digital subscription to THE New York Times newspaper. Yay! Actually I am really excited about this as they are always posting clickbait articles to get you to subscribe. You are probably like me and think “Oh jeez, just what I need, ANOTHER monthly subscription.” Right? Well, it is only $4. So it’s not like American Express is throwing champagne bottles and expensive cheeses at you. They took away roadside assistance and gave you a bunch of worthless perks, which in reality are just a coupon. Neat. Membership perks at a health fitness club that isn’t in my city, and if it was, would be way too expensive for me.
So back to the Times. It does have some interesting perspectives and facts. I like facts. So I’ll share some with you. 38,552,183. That’s the number of COVID cases in the United States. 634,734. That’s the number of cumulative reported deaths. Keep in mind there are probably thousands upon thousands who have died alone and no one knows it. Homeless people for starters. Runaways. 1,233. That is the number that died YESTERDAY. Oh yes, and let us not forget the 13 soldiers who died in Afghanistan in the suicide bombing. Sad, yes very sad. But let us not forget that those uniformed service warriors took an oath and knew there were risks going to war. They all knew they might die. Now the COVID victims who are hospitalized — that is on them.
Everyone is at war with the virus, yet stores are fully stocked with Clorox and Lysol cleaning wipes. Hand sanitizer is on clearance and no one is buying it. And there are 75+ million who don’t want to wear a mask, wash their hands and keep calling the virus a hoax. Something the government and media created to control you. Yes, that is it exactly. Every single fucking country in the nation agreed to let their people die and unanimously voted on it in secret. Wrong. What we really should call it is the fucking idiot virus. Because those who think they are invincible are fucking idiots. Well Darwin said it best. Survival of the fittest. COVID makes sure those idiots are not fit. Walking, breathing, existing will all be challenges for them. What can you say? They were all warned. This isn’t a sudden surprise killer. Go watch Carriers or Contagion … again, to refresh your memory at how you should be acting and behaving in public.
Florida lost another 242 residents yesterday making a total of 43,632 total deaths. Those numbers are of course from the NY Times. University of Florida has 9914 cases, the highest number concentration of all the different places, such as nursing homes, prisons, food processing plants. 3,151,909 total cases for Florida, and things are not looking good. In the blink of an eye, their healthcare system will collapse and fall. I’ll keep my readers posted since I now have the digital subscription. Knowledge is power.
AND Ryan Reynolds kills it again on the big screen in his box office hit, Free Guy. I’ll admit, it was very entertaining. And yes, he is paired up with “Cool Girl” which we all know doesn’t exist, except in Hollywood and in the digital virtual world.
Negative Nancy & Debbie Downer
Do you know these two ladies? In society today, people or characters are created to personify a stereotype. Of course every Nancy isn’t negative, and every Debbie isn’t a downer. Every Karen isn’t a bitch, and every Chad isn’t a dick. Just imagine though, for a moment if all these “characters” all got together and made their own little club. Oh shit, too late. It’s called Congress. Seriously think of all the negativity and bad shit that goes on back and forth between our elected officials. Well sometimes those negative people aren’t just in congress and the house, they are in your own backyard, your neighborhood, your grocery store, your Walmart and yes, even in your own home.
Where does that negativity come from? Is someone forcing you to be negative or nice? Explain your reasoning to someone like they are a five year old and the reason you HATE _______ (insert your most despised ethnic/organized group) is because they ________ me personally in some fashion. Well if your reason is you don’t like someone(s) is because they are different from you then that is a shitty explanation. BUT wait for it … that is the basis of most racism and hatred. WTF right? So if you are white and only like white people then maybe you should go be Amish, where there are no colored people.
What if YOU are one of those bad parents, who is also negative, who looks back at his/her life thinking you made a mistake. You wish you didn’t have responsibilities, and kids, and a spouse. Trust me on this one, it is real and the reason why divorce rates are so exponentially high. Maybe, just maybe some parents are so careless and reckless in their own lives in protecting their children. Birthrates are at an all time low. And who can blame a parent not wanting to have kids during a pandemic. After all, the kids today aren’t safe, who is to say an unborn baby is any safer? I would think that a newborn would be extremely vulnerable as they really haven’t had time to develop a strong immune system.
Believe it or not, but there is a large portion of the population that just don’t like kids. In fact, they might even go as far as to say they despise them. I can think of a few groups that don’t particularly like to take responsibility. I can’t think of quite of a few deadbeat dads and selfish moms who also fit into that category. Billionaire Robert Branson for one. He developed an entire cruise ship that bans kids. Nice. There is already a job/labor issue that is dramatically affecting the economy. Imagine if tomorrow’s parents are all wiped out because of the virus. Millions worldwide have died, and millions more will die alone. I think Whitney Houston said it best. “I believe the children are our future.”
Let us dive off into the metaphysical imaginary land for just a moment and talk about new baby souls. More specifically, new souls born as new babies. Now this is all hypothetical and designed to get you to ponder and think of something other that the harsh realities we face daily.
So for just a moment consider that when a new baby is born, his/her soul has to come from somewhere. In some cultures they call it reincarnation. There are all kinds of debates and studies on this already so I am not going to go into that. What I am thinking is … if millions of people are dying and hardly any babies are being born … then what happens to all those souls waiting to be reborn? Do they just hang out in purgatory/heaven for a really long time?
In many — ideologies there is this principle that there is a certain balance in the Universe. In theory, there are only so many souls, and they are all on the planet for a particular amount of time. I think we all know that the dying isn’t going to stop. Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, … heat waves, and soon freezing cold. Remember when it was so cold people died walking to their cars? In the past society was obsessed with the end of the world. Is this it? Or is it secretly an alien invasion that wants to destroy the indigenous life before they take over the planet and change it to their atmosphere like in the movie, Man of Steel?
It’s time for a shout out! There is this really cool app called Life 360. If you have any family members, like kids, spouses, siblings, whatever and you want to keep tabs on him/her, then you install the Life360 app for all your peeps. Yes, it is like big brother watching you, where you are, and even giving you notifications when someone arrives, but it also gives you a peace of mind knowing where that person is. Yes, the iPhone already has “Where is my iPhone”, but this works on any smartphone. What this app also has is “crash detection”, and roadside assistance with the gold membership. So if you are paying for roadside through AAA or your cell phone, you should cancel those and use this app instead.
While experiencing a blow out today, I called American Express platinum to find out they eliminated that nice handy benefit. No roadside. WTF right? They give you free everything, except towing your car. They told me I could use my Uber benefit. I asked if Uber all of the sudden towed cars. No, I can’t use that when my car is stranded on the side of the road during rush hour traffic. So luckily I remembered Life 360 has roadside and they sent a tow truck right away. They told me due to to COVID that I could not ride with the driver and I should call an Uber. Again I laughed, and rolled my eyes. When the driver showed up, he gladly gave me a ride with my car. Life360 will also unlock your car if you accidentally lock those keys … again.
And in case you missed it, SENATOR Hickenlooper from Colorado has contracted COVID19. Yep. Alabama and Mississippi are out of ICU beds. And I will say it since the media isn’t. That motorcycle rally up in Sturgis 2 weeks ago is what is causing all this havoc. Not a single person masked up and then they traveled across the nation spreading disease. There is no congressional concern that kids are killed in school shootings, so why would there be a concern for a mask mandate? Exactly. It won’t be until someone important dies that people will actually do what is right.
And I lied. I actually love glitter. The more the better. Who doesn’t like a little sparkle in their life?
