Masturbation…..A more interesting topic than Trump.
I have reached the point where I am totally frustrated. Not with Trump, Congress, society in general. I am frustrated with the LAW. I am qualified to speak. The law was my life for 46 years.
The law is not working. Courts are being packed, the FBI investigated, a President who constantly disregards the law, no one doing what they should do, infrequent performance by government late.
The legal system is antiquated and requires upgrading.
Which brings me to the more interesting topic of masturbation.
Ann Landers was a nationally recognized advice columnist in the previous generation.
In May 1993, she discussed masturbation in her column. AIDS and unwanted pregnancies rampant at the time. Landers endorsed masturbation as a safe and realistic solution to people’s needs.
Landers noted, “Masturbation is a cheap and easy way to do it.” She also noted that her masturbation advice would not have flown 10 or 20 years earlier. The public was not ready to hear it.
I recall a fourth grade masturbation experience. Not doing it. My body had not revealed the possibility to me yet.
I attended a Catholic school. I was 8 years old, as were my class mates.
On the last day of school before summer vacation, a priest came to our classroom to talk to the boys. The girls could not remain.
He talked about masturbation. How it was self abuse, a sin, could make hair grow on our hands, render us blind. For real, that was the thrust of the talk.
We looked at each other strangely. Most if not all of us did not know what he was talking about. In fact so beyond us was the topic that we did not even discuss his talk after school.
Another more interesting topic than Trump involves a girl born in December in a San Diego Hospital. She was a preemie.
The child is believed to be the world’s tiniest surviving micro-preemie. Weighed 8.6 ounces. Not even one pound!
She has been described as the size of an apple when born.
A normal pregnancy is 39-40 weeks. The baby had been in her mother’s womb only 23 weeks 3 days.
This month she went home. Five months later. A healthy infant weighing 5 pounds.
To Mueller’s talk. The facts are all over the media. You have heard them already. I am not going to bore you with a recitation.
What bothers me is that everyone keeps passing the buck. Mueller should have called a spade a spade. I don’t buy FBI “policy” that a President cannot be indicted for a federal crime while in office. It is merely a policy. Not law. Congress never passed it. A President never signed such a bill. Even the validity of its source is questionable.
Mueller should have gone for it!
I ask, what if a President was secretly carrying a gun. Someone on federal property pissed him off. An unarmed person. The President shot and killed the individual.
Is Mueller telling us under such a fact pattern the President could not be indicted? No way. No one, even a President, is above the law.
My other unhappiness factor is based on the law increasingly not working. Whether in Washington or on the streets of America where an unarmed person is shot by the police and the police go free.
What Mueller has done is guarantee that our country will be in a state of chaos till the 2020 election. If Trump wins again in 2020, God help us! The United States will never be the same.
John McCain is a real American hero. A warship was named after his grandfather and father, both who were Admirals in the U.S. Navy. McCain’s name has been added to the vessel.
The warship is in Japanese waters. Within Trump’s view while he would be in Japan.
It has been reported the White House wanted the USS John McCain hidden. A 5/15 email between U.S. Navy and Air Force officials: “USS John McCain needs to be out of sight.”
I am not aware if Trump knew what was going on. I suspect not. However high level officials apparently did not want to upset Trump.
Trump should never have gotten into a tariff war with China. His….tariff wars are easy, I win tariff wars…..is not working. Ask the farmers in the midwest.
The Chinese People’s Daily is considered the government’s newspaper. It reported yesterday re the tariff war and the U.S.: “Don’t say we didn’t warn you!”
That terminology has only been used twice before. In 1962 before China’s border war with India. Then before the 1979 China-Vietnam War.
I will be out of the house at noon today. A haircut. Need one badly. Will shave before. I need a shave badly also.
Hopefully tonight I will go out for a while.
Enjoy your day!
