So if I don't want to like and or share this passive bully post of yours I am condoning child abuse am I. See this is just how easy it is to manipulate the masses into doing something they would not have done in the first place. This social conditioning we get from the online world and the media is amazing, is it not? The people who have shed the media services in favour for the "real facts online" are often mislead with great ease. You present something as news and they will then take it as fact. If it goes with their disdain for established media sources then all the better. All these freedom fighters out there looking for the real truth behind it all, they fall onto the click traps filled with advertising to generate revenue at their expense and they think they are fighting the cooperate world. The entire time oblivious to the fact that they are being handed yet more outlandish bullshit all in the name of a quick buck. There are many many people out there that have figured it out and are taking advantage of the counter establishment masses that have gathered on the internet. The entire time the real revolutionary's are not sitting behind a computer screen and talking about what should be done and how we are being manipulated. They are out there spray painting walls and protesting. They are shaking things up and fighting with the cops. I am by far not one of them, but they gather more respect from me than those who sit there all day sharing link after link to some click trap hell. I have advice for anyone who goes to these pages on a regular bases. First have good virus protection and second install a good adblocker. The advertising sources are more than often not safe ones and tend to on occasion pass a virus on to you threw the many exploits in our browsers. Activists on the other hand hang out on message boards and not Facebook. They don't tend to publish articles, instead the talk in code to each other. Groups rarely talk to each other and have their own agenda. When they do converge it is usually the start of trouble. Then there is the activists who do not leave home. They route threw the dark web and hack what they can when they can for the good of humanity as they see it. They trust no one and never hang out on social media long enough to do anything more than post a warning to an individual or a group as to what they want changed. All in all it comes down to making real choices in the real world to effect change. Clicking like and sharing an absurd MEME will never help a child. Handing the abuser their ass in a dark ally might.
I'm about to turn 57. I honestly thought I'd be dead by now for many reasons - mostly health. It's November 18, 2023 - but I'll be with friends for it on the 16th. We are going to Boston Pizza for lunch and I'll be having some pasta I love from there. I think it will be the last time I'll be going there for my birthday dinner, as the price went up from $15.99 last year to this year at $22.49. Or so I though LOL. Well after looking up the prices the other day and seeing this massive jump, I was like "DANG." Well I just today hit their site and did the "order online" thing to check the prices and it's still $15.99. I wish I'd have saved the source of the inflated price, but I didn't. I'd sure of have told people NOT to use that one. So looks like I'll be going back next year as well, unless I drop dead. I'll have enough on my gift card for the pasta and a soft drink of some kind. This is the only fuss I'll be making
Well to me this is a complicated question. There is what strict old school science says it is, then there is what no gender conformists think it is. Also, there is what the avantguard of science say it is. On both sides of the coin there are people who demand that everyone agrees with them – this is true of literally everything people think, do, or believe in. Personally, I believe gender is of the mind and not of the body. I’m obviously a man to look at me. Genetics say I am a man, I have all the male parts, but I don’t identify as male. OK I do on forms use he/him, but I am in my mind fluid gender. To my brain what I am is in flux. I can feel female, and I can feel male, and I can feel in the middle. There is science behind this identity thing. When tested, chemically trans women are closer to women than men. Genetically they test as men of course. But the chemicals in their body tend to be more to the other side. There is of course, people who don’t test to have the altered chemistr
Grounds smell earthy. Smell is mild smelling and not overly complex. Just like regular discount coffee. Taste is dark, slightly bitter and a hint of dark chocolate and a very slight hint of hazelnut. Slightly burnt after taste and I was careful not to over brew it, so it is not on my end. Rating: 5/10 – but it is rather inexpensive.
The Fifth Estate (1976 - Still Going) Documentary, News This was a show that I remember my Mom and Dad watching once a week. Later in life I watched it as well. I no longer watch it as I’m no longer interested in news. At the time in the 70’s I did not really get what it was all about, I just wanted to be with my parents while they watched it. My brother never did stay for it if I remember correctly. Hockey Night in Canada (1952 - Still Going) Sports Dad watched this all the time in the 70’s and 80’s then just kind of stopped. I now watch it on my own. I love Hockey and CFL (Canadian Football). At the time I just was there for it – was not interested in sports until I was much older. Marketplace (1972 - Still Going) News, Consumer Affairs This is the consumer affairs show in Canada. They document what a business is doing wrong to a customer or a group and then confront them with it on camera. They have effected change over the years and ran a few places out of business. I was inte
