Cecil the lion had a sponsor. Cecil was being studied. The brave white hunter paid $50,000 to have the lion lured out of the safety of the preserve. It was hunted by someone who simply wanted to show a trophy head and the animal’s skin on the floor. He wasn’t interested in sharing Lion meat with the natives. He wasn’t interested in providing money to the natives. No. He wanted to have a head and a skin from Cecil. Personally I think he was in need of this to make him look like he was a man. Trophy hunting is just that. It has nothing to do with preservation of a species by combing out the sick or reducing population to avoid illness and starvation. No. It is about making people think you are a man. I think there is another way of showing manhood. One way is to work at stopping the incredible number of abortions in this country daily. On Friday, over 2,740 were done. Probably only a few were necessary due to incest, rape, or the need to preserve the health of the mother……Yep…. you are a mother if you are pregnant. Well, if you were one of them then you might have checked to see if the fetus was then sold for research. If this disturbs you then maybe you need to feel something about this wretched problem. I am for abortions when it comes to the mother’s health, because of rape, and because of incest. I do not think abortion is a birth control device. Nor do I think that luring a celebrity lion out of its safety and killing it is hunting.
Okay, so I have been on Facebook with everyone else jumping up and down about Cecil the Lion. I needed to be in the pack. I was outraged. Others were outraged. We clashed as to what each was outraged about. Some have the facts. Some think they have but don’t. Some like Aleesa in Perth, Australia just want to fight about whatever. It makes no matter what you say, to her, you are wrong. She’s a model. A skinny model. Makes her money walking up and down a short platform and is overly impressed with herself.
Anyway, enough said about her. She is a one of a kind and there are plenty of models out there who make a good living in a tough industry and I salute you all. My middle brother was a model in Chicago as a child.
But again, I digress…… Cecil brought forth emotion! Emotion! We need emotion in our lives that light us up like flashlights, fireworks, howitzers, nuclear bombs going off…we need to be able to feel (Aleesa disagreed). We need the comfort of being able to state our feelings and argue points of difference and….FEEL…… Our emotions have been severed. Over 2,700 abortions were committed in the US yesterday and more will be performed today, and tomorrow, and the next day. Do you see outrage on FB? No. You see outrage over Cecil and I think you should and I am happy that somebody out there feels something because we are headed to the land where everything is the same and everyone wears the same, talks the same, buys the same, elects the same, has 2.5 kids and never, never, never ever feel anything! And all the little Aleesas out there can go to hell as far as I’m concerned because they want to restrict your right and my right by trying to bully us into submission.
Do not stop feeling. Do not stop caring. If you do you will be nothing but a robot and the social democrats = communists = socialists = liberals want that to happen. Only they can feel anything as far as they are concerned. Well I say NO.
0900 and I just made pancakes with almond milk as a substitute for real milk. But if it is almond milk then doesn’t that mean that it is milk? If I have cows milk then that seems to be the norm. But almond milk is still milk, I think. And soy milk? How about cashew butter, or almond butter. I mean that if you generally go to the store to buy butter, then it is cow butter. But, we don’t say I’m going to the store to buy cow butter. We say we are going to the store to get butter. See my point? Is there a point there? Anyway, I had pancakes.
I was reading the back of the package because the front said I could make pancakes or waffles. Ah, there is a novel idea.
But I wondered what was the difference between pancakes and waffles if they all have the same components. Is there a special waffle mix? No. Same stuff. Mix, eggs, oil, and …….. oh, the box said milk for pancakes and water for waffles. Why? Why can’t I just make pancake stuff and put it in a waffle maker (assuming I owned one which I don’t) but the issue is why? Milk -v- water? God help me.
Anyway, we are going to the new Bass Pro Shop in Brandon, FL today. Yeah!
