Monday Newsfeed: WTH is “Green Monday”??!!??

Posted by Maggie on  in From the editors

Party-on!

I woke this morning and checked my email (something I almost rarely do) and found several store ad emails promoting “Green Monday” savings. I’m like, “Wuuuut?” I mean, I know there’s “Black Friday” (which a lot of businesses this year actually began at least a week before the Friday after Thanksgiving), closely followed by “Cyber Monday” on the Monday following Thanksgiving weekend (which a lot of companies began at least a week before the actual post-turkey day Monday). But “Green Monday” is a totally new one for me. Totally. And I’ve nearly gotten sucked in, but nahhh. I’m done. The Grandkids and our youngest daughter are completed (well, still waiting for the “My Pillows” to arrive) and the older/married daughters and their hubbies are done (edible gifts this year … NOT cookies, BTW). Haven’t yet gotten anything for my hubby, except his annual box of Italian candy he always asks for. My Mom is done, and we’re trying to decide which gift card to get my Dad and Stepmom. Christmas K.I.S.S.

And I finally rolled, cut, and baked the last batch of cookies yesterday. I now just need to do the ‘royal icing’ thing (which I’ve never done before) and then paint/decorate them with the food coloring paints that came with the kit. Oh! And one of the Sons-in-law came by and dragged the Christmas tree box up from the basement. Hubby and youngest daughter put it together yesterday afternoon. Lights and decorations to follow, and they too are stored in the basement. Heh!

A Very COVID Christmas to Youuuuuu:

The struggle is real, folks. The holidays are rough for everyone this year. You can just almost hear the bear yelling “WHERE’S YOUR MASK? WEAR A MASK!!”

Steve Karp, M.D.: The Medical Profession Implodes

What changed overnight and across the board, was an anti-science attitude across all specialties to everything related to COVID. A viral infection is not something requiring government management, rather, its encounter is part of a physician’s daily medical practice. The government has seemingly accomplished what medical insurers, medical boards, and hospitals tried, but had not yet succeeded at: complete mind control of physicians. And with that, the last vestige of respect I had for my profession died…

J.B. Shurk: The Great Reset Crowd’s Overreach Will Come Back to Bite Them

So-called “democracies” around the world have proven during these last two years of COVID-1984 just how authoritarian their leaders really are. They censor, compel, threaten, intimidate, and dole out physical and emotional punishments in as arbitrary and terrifying a manner as any mad king. Then the thuggish little tyrants playing Mussolini while raging against fascism run to the video cameras and boast of the joys of “democracy” and the threats of authoritarianism emanating from Russia and China…

Well, it is a very dirty word to the left who wants everything in our free market society inhaled and nationalized and run by a centralized government. Yes, it was indeed done in the USSR and China … and Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela … and the shortages and famine were the results, comrades.
