95% Of The World’s Population….

We are often told that we are only 5% of the world’s population. Whenever someone wants to emphasize our failures they use that number. We are 5% of the World’s population: but we have 20% of the COVID deaths but we have 25% of the COVID cases but we use 24% of the world’s fossil […]

Anti-Mask, Anti-vaxxers, Lazy Minds – One and the Same?

It seems there are various groups in this world who just don’t want to go along when the “Public Good” is the topic. They just don’t seem to care about anyone else. They want to go about their lives totally focused on themselves. The anti-maskers don’t want to be inconvenienced by wearing a mask to […]

What Does It Take To Rattle Lazy Minds?

I don’t know about you, but when I watched the pictures of domestic terrorists invading the US Congress while it was in session I was struck with fear. “Is this the beginning of the end for the “United” States? Will anarchy replace our democracy? I couldn’t believe what I was watching. The only saving grace […]

Don’t Run Away

We spend too much of our time running away from problems instead of addressing them head-on. Let’s be honest, we in America have a history of messing things up and then moving on instead of fixing them. We have been struggling with the idea of equality and justice for our whole existence, maybe it is […]

Teaching the Dark Side In Civics Classes

Civics classes should be about American’s sins and glories since it is a country founded by remarkable individuals with some serious flaws. An important part of our history was that many of our founders were slave holders. They owned other people and could do whatever they wanted with them. Washington had hundreds of slaves. He […]

Keeping Things In Perspective

I think it’s time for your last Aspie lesson for 2020. 🥸 I, like everyone else to one degree or another, get things seriously out of perspective. I let little things take up too much of my thinking life. My brain seems to constantly run in overdrive, a dozen things at a time. Many of […]

Moral Self Licensing

I came across an interesting post from one of my British friends. It is about moral self licensing. That is a psychological term about how people who are actually doing harm believe that they are doing good. That kinda describes one or maybe both of our political parties doesn’t it? An example of moral self-licensing […]

Guaranteed Income

Now that we are closing this current period of political idiocy, it’s time to start talking about things that have been put on the back burner. I know government dysfunction will not immediately end when he is finally out of office. There is still an enormous amount of work that needs to be done to […]

One World Power?

Another NYT post spurred me into thinking again why must the US be THE world power. Who decided that and how do we get out of it? That is what this post is all about. I love how the article opened up with the fact that President Biden will never figure out how to eliminate […]

From Stone To Metal

Last week on Trivia Saturday I told you a little about the Stone Age. This one is about the transition from stone to metal. Around 8,000 BCE people started making simple cold-hammered tools from copper and gold. With that accomplishment, the 3.2 million-year-old Stone Age ended, FINALLY 🧐 It would be another 4,500 years before […]

77% of Republicans believe everything Trump says. That can only be explained through the state of paranoia and paranoia as shown to the right comes primarily from a heightened level of fear and delusions of persecution.

No One Likes To Be Told They Are Wrong

I know my Aspie traits make me hypersensitive to criticism, but I don’t think any of us take being told we are wrong well. Telling someone they are wrong usually starts a battle. So, how is reconciliation possible with the 70 million who voted for that incompetent narcissist. How do we try to get them […]

Both Parties Need Serious Realignment

It’s pretty obvious that Trump and his lazy minded followers have left the Republican Party in shreds, or at least what used to be the party. But I kinda think that the same thing has happened to the Democrats. They are allowing the fringes take over and that disenfranchises too many people. They are such […]
