Who in their right mind would kill hundreds of thousands of bees? The answer is nobody. The bee killers are foolish marauders who think their petty behavior is a “statement” to climate change believing, tree-hugging, lefties. We don’t even need to know them to know this about them. I think a fitting punishment would be to deny them the fruits of the bee’s labor… but, then again, that would mean they couldn’t eat, and if they can’t eat, they can’t live, so that would be the death penalty. And, I’m not fond of the death penalty.
What do you think is a fitting punishment for these bee-killing “deniers?”
Measles cases were ELIMINATED in the US in the year 2000. This new outbreak is the result of ignorance and selfishness. ZERO organized religions are against vaccination, so if your priest, rabbi, imam, etc, tells you that you can’t vaccinate your children, find a new religious leader. Ultra-conservatives, of whatever sects, are just “making up” their own rules. “Personal choice” is why we now have the reemergence of this deadly disease. We are not YET a war-torn country (which is why measles proliferate in certain places). Why do we allow the ignorance of a few to affect the children of us all?
❤️ Roald Dahl on Measles: “Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.
‘Are you feeling all right?’ I asked her.
‘I feel all sleepy,’ she said.
In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.
The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her. That was…in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her. On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles.
…I dedicated two of my books to Olivia, the first was ‘James and the Giant Peach’. That was when she was still alive. The second was ‘The BFG’, dedicated to her memory after she had died from measles. You will see her name at the beginning of each of these books. And I know how happy she would be if only she could know that her death had helped to save a good deal of illness and death among other children.”
Roald Dahl, 1986
Have you had all your vaccinations? If you don’t know, you should check. It isn’t fun to get terrible diseases, and some, like mumps, can make you sterile. Are you willing to chance it?
Maggie has officially announced, and has shared her new advert. What do you think? Is it time for a woman to hold that seat – the one being vacated by Tom Udall? At this point, there are only two people running, but it’s early days. Ben Ray Lujan is the other Democratic Party choice.
