Suggestion for Potheads

After the CBD fumes cleared out of my head, the feeling of getting back to being myself was absolutely delightful. I like being me. I now feel especially sad for habitual potheads. Have you considered getting psychological health to get to enjoy being you? Pot is like using a tire iron to break open a Faberge egg. There are a lot more delicate ways of carrying the burden of being your self. Why choose such a brutal one?

Enough with JKRowling

I obviously support JKRowling but it’s really maddening that she is suddenly a huge feminist cause while the fact that school closures make working impossible for millions of women isn’t.

This is a gigantic loss for female employment, self-determination, financial self-sufficiency, everything. But there’s a deafening silence on this subject.

Enough with JKRowling already. Let’s talk about the women who have been thrown out of the workplace by the neurotic rich ladies who can afford to indulge their anxieties at everybody else’s expense.

Children and COVID

In Iceland, a stunning percentage of the population was tested for coronavirus, and this is what was found:

Children under 10 are less likely to get infected than adults and if they get infected, they are less likely to get seriously ill. What is interesting is that even if children do get infected, they are less likely to transmit the disease to others than adults. We have not found a single instance of a child infecting parents.

This is, of course, one of a dozen sources that say exactly the same: there’s no evidence that children transmit, let alone get seriously ill. There are no studies I’ve seen that show children do transmit, although it should be harder to prove a negative. Yet people go batshit crazy if you mention any of this science. Really unhinged and scary. Question: who got them this way and for what purpose?

To me, the answer is clear. This is a convenient way to get them to beg for their welfare (free schooling) to be taken away. And it works.

Best Quarantine

My kid had the absolute best time in quarantine for one reason: I didn’t watch or read a single news report on COVID. It doesn’t mean I’m indifferent to the subject. I actually know tons about it. But I didn’t let those vile manipulators mess with my brain.

I’m very glad I figured out they are all liars in time.

Addictions

It took me 24 hours to get back to normal after the contretemps with the pothead bath salts. Once I recovered, I realized that in my dazed state I had taken advantage of a sale on Israeli history books and purchased a bunch.

I can quit narcotic bath salts any time but book-buying is a different story.

E-learning Is Stupid

If it’s between e-learning and homeschooling, I’d 100% choose homeschooling. I see absolutely no value in obligatory vegetation in front of a screen.

It’s definitely one of the huge ironies of life that I now seriously consider homeschooling plans because the alternative is so unappetizing. I have accepted that schools don’t teach anything, I accepted that they are anti-health. I accepted that they are extremely ideological. But when it comes to turning kids into little screen addicts, my tolerance has reached its limit. Plus, if the sociability aspect is gone, I fail to see the point altogether.

I can’t even believe I’m writing this.

Class-based

“Cancel culture” sounds catchy and cute (plus, there’s alliteration, which always makes for a good slogan) but it’s confusing and open to endless time-consuming debates. What constitutes canceling? What’s a culture?

Once you call it what it really is, JOB WARS, things become much clearer. Job wars intensify once jobs start evaporating. We are in a recession, so job wars have become vicious.

Similarly, “Resistance” (does anybody even remember it anymore?) is a lot easier to understand if you remember that it’s a class war.

There are many discussions of Marxism yet there’s not a shade of a class-based analysis of anything.

No, not everything is about the economy. But cancel culture, resistance, and #metoo absolutely are.

Here’s Cliff Arroyo’s analysis of Robin DiAngelo’s book as a tool of workplace discipline. Unless you think of the book as a workplace phenomenon, you won’t understand it. And the same goes for microaggressions as a concept.

Why Is It Legal?

There’s no warning on the packaging of the CBD bath salts. I had to squint to read it because I’m too zonked out to read normally but I’m fairly certain there is no warning. It says it’s not FDA approved but nothing about possible side effects.

All I did was take a bath with these salts and I’m completely out of it. It’s a good thing it’s Saturday night and I don’t have to do anything. This stuff is sold in a completely open access. What if some teenage girl buys it?

I wasn’t planning ever to discover what it means to be high but I just did because of stupid bath salts I innocently bought.
