-3I suspect that the real reason the condemned is offered at last meal is not a consolation to the accused, but to ease the conscience of the executioner as he commits the same sin of which the condemned was convicted. More
+7To everyone: if you fit into a similar category of someone who did something bad, YOU DO NOT NEED to be defensive. If there is a movement that is working on stopping the behaviour of certain people who harm others, and you happen to be of the same religion, gender, ethnicity, age, income or whatever of the "bad people", unless you are doing the "bad stuff", IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU. So, please, do not join the people who are twisting reality to make it seem like you're a target. More

+7Trump is such a weak president. The conservatives chastised Obama for not standing tough to Putin's election meddling, even though he expelled 35 Russian Diplomats and slapped tough sanctions on Russia. Trump practically had to have his arm twisted by Congress before he agreed to even half of those measures. And of course he believes Putin's protest of innocence. How? because Putin told him so. Now of course, Trump is standing firm with the Saudis, saying, "I hope the King and prince didn't have anything to do with this. That would be a big factor to me." Is Trump high? NOTHING gets done in the name of Saudi Arabia without those two despots knowing about it beforehand. Trump is such a tough guy when it comes to insulting survivors of sexual assault. Evil Dictators? Not so much.
My stocks are doing so-so, near all time highs and growing at same rate for 10 years or so. No complaints but not getting rich. My grocery bills are definitely up 20% or more. Healthcare cost is way up and raising at a rate faster than the last 5 years. Not that I need the money but overall I am not feeling any financial pain nor am I feeling the need to celebrate a windfall. How about you?
