[Fair and Balanced or Feeding Hate] On CNN I watched Biden’s outrage over the latest gun murders and the poor innocent victims. I wanted to get another opinion, so I switched to FOX where they were outraged that Biden “felt nothing for the victims.. absolutely felt nothing!”. Do we live in a fantasy world where truth no longer matters? I went from watching the President who was visibly upset over the innocent people who were murdered, to FOX saying he felt nothing. They lied in order to keep their ratings high with the mega crowd. It’s truly a sick society where truth no longer matters. You can hate the government and not support democracy, but truth is truth, you can’t make it up just to feed that hate.

[Margaritaville] Jimmy Buffett’s big song is in the Library of Congress? He reveals where he wrote it. “I started writing it on napkin in a Mexican restaurant in Austin, Texas, with a friend who was driving me to the airport, to fly home to Key West. On the drive down the Keys, there was a fender-bender on the Seven Mile Bridge, west of Marathon, and I found myself sitting on the sidewalk, starring out overlooking Pigeon Key, one of my favorite landmarks in Florida,” Buffett recalls.

[Cable News Anchors Fired] Big deal, they’ll change their platform and end up at the exact opposite station. It’s all about the greenbacks.
[Abortion] In 1966 an abortion in the upstairs of the oldest bar in the state of Rhode Island costs $200. Don’t ask how I know. Thankfully it was a hysterical pregnancy and didn’t happen. To make matters worse I had to deal with the mob, but they were actually kind because I was just a kid. That’s when abortion was illegal and so were condoms in the mostly Catholic state.
[Don’t Argue With Donkeys] The donkey said to the tiger, “The grass is blue”. The tiger replied, “No, the grass is green.” The discussion heated up, and the two decided to submit to arbitration, and for this they went before the lion, the King of the Jungle. Already before reaching the forest clearing, where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey began to shout:– “His Highness, is it true that the grass is blue?” The lion replied, “True, the grass is blue.” The donkey hurried and continued, “The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts and annoys me, please punish him.” The king then declared, “The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence.” The donkey jumped cheerfully and went on his way, content and repeating, “The Grass Is Blue”
The tiger accepted his punishment and he asked the lion, “Your Majesty, why have you punished me? after all, the grass is green.” The lion replied, “In fact, the grass is green.” The tiger asked, “So why are you punishing me?” The lion replied, “That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave and intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that come and bother me with that question.”
The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who does not care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on arguments that don’t make sense. There are people who, no matter how much evidence we present to them, are not in the capacity to understand, and others are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and all they want is to be right even if they are not.
When ignorance screams, intelligence is silent. Your peace and quiet are worth more
I spent 2-1/2 hours yesterday troubleshooting why the passenger seatbelt indicator in my wife’s car activated whenever she drove it, but never did for me. It turns out her purse weighs as much as an adult. That’s time and frustration I’ll never get back.

[For Sale] Air hammer $100.

Fox News’ sudden firing of Tucker Carlson may have come down to one simple calculation. Perhaps it was related to ex-producer Abby Grossberg’s lawsuit against the network, which alleged rampant sexism and anti-Semitic behavior behind the scenes at Carlson’s show? Or perhaps it was profanity-laced remarks, some of which were redacted in the Dominion discovery documents, that Carlson privately made, disparaging his colleagues, including Fox brass? Or perhaps Rupert Murdoch, and his chief executive son Lachlan, wanted to send a message about who is ultimately in command at the company after having been embarrassed for months with the public airing of Fox’s dirty laundry?

[Sacred Cow Pee] Drinking cow urine is known to be harmful, so why do people consume it every day in India? Religion is at the base of all India’s problems. The Hindu deity Vishnu has 300-400 gods, no one knows the exact number, that’s how foolish they are. Link
[Qardio] Dr Grider’s new bosses found another way to rip off Medicare. Your doctor sends you some sort of monitoring device that warns them if you die, or something, and they can tell you that you are dying, or something. I don’t quite understand its purpose other than to bill Medicare. And they bill Medicare every month for it. It’s no wonder Medicare loses so much money with greedy doctors finding new ways to rip-off Medicare and Medicaid.
