Israel Sends Aid to Beirut in Spite of Threats of Destruction

There are two sides to humanity. There are ways in which we are different (which is not all that bad). There are also ways in which are we similar.

One of the ways in which we are similar is how we are instructed to treat one other. The Golden Rule aka “Do to no one what you yourself dislike.” exists in multiple religious texts from a variety of belief systems.

Yesterday, a building filled with chemicals exploded in Beirut. As of tonight, 100 people died from the explosion, thousands are injured and many more are homeless.

In response, other countries have sent humanitarian aid and support. Among those countries is Israel. Yes, Israel.

In spite of the constant threat of destruction by Hezbollah, the Israelis put whatever enmity and bad blood they have aside to help the victims.

That is the Israel that I know and love. Perhaps you should get to know her as I do.

Thoughts on Ticked Off Vic: Elected Officials Who Think They’re the Ruling Class

The purpose of democracy is to ensure that the voice of the average citizen is heard. There is no aristocratic type hierarchy in which a ruler and the wealthy classes are more important than the average person on the street.

At least that is the idea.

The latest news from Washington D.C. is that the traditional Congressional August recess has left a few unresolved issues on the table. One of these is whether or not to continue to send an additional $600 a week in unemployment to those who are still jobless due to Covid-19. I have a few opinions on the topic, but I will let Vic DiBitetto (Ticked Off Vic) share his perspective. The nail has been hit on the head.

As usual, his videos contain language that might be offensive to some people.

“It is What it is”-How POTUS Responds to Covid-19

Difficult times often reveal who a person is. How they respond to the crisis unfolding in front of them speaks volumes.

Since Covid-19 made itself a little too comfortable in the United States earlier this year, the economy has gone down the drain and over 150,00 Americans have lost their lives.

And what is the response of POTUS to this double calamity?

“is what it is” 

If doesn’t piss you off, I don’t what to say. Not only is this man incompetent, he doesn’t give two sh*ts about the country. He only cares about number one.

Over the last three years, he has given us plenty of reasons to question if he can do the job the American voters hired him to do. If one was to list the reasons why he is incapable, this statement would be in the top five, if not number one.

P.S. If you have not seen the Jonathan Swan interview, I highly recommend that you do so. It is an SNL skit in the making.
