If a single person dies from the Corona virus in the US, the stock market drops over 2000 points. If millions of babies are vacuumed out of wombs, dismembered, and sold as spare parts, the masses don't blink an eye.
If a candidate for President brags on video that he refused to release money to the Ukraine unless, within 6 hours before leaving, unless he got his way by ordering the firing of a prosecutor, so his son would not be investigated, and the crowd laughs, then why impeach another candidate for President whose son did not sit on a Ukrainian energy board, who did not need investigating?
If anyone lived through the 60's and 70's when the two dominant US political parties apparently "switched" every plank of their political platforms so the Republicans bear the responsibility for slavery that the Democrats advocated, then why doesn't anyone remember the "switch", have never been taught about the "switch" in school, or can find a single source that explains how, when, and why this "switch " of political platforms occurred?
How can four years of free college costs less than 50 years of taxable earnings to pay for that free college? Did the words "free" and "forever" suddenly switch definitions without fanfare or footnoting?
Do criminals obey laws? Do dictators care about costs? How can killing an infant be healthcare? Will a flimsy surgical mask prevent the spread of infection better than a wall that prevents the entry of someone who can spread infection?
Did anyone see the collective media stammer and stutter when quoting the US Constitution about the details of impeachment similar to small children who have to read their term paper aloud to the class when they know they did not write it (Mueller?)? Both politician and school child have an audience watching them read the unfamiliar for the very first time.
Mindy woke this morning and decided to verify all she had ever taken for granted. She sought credible sources. She asked uncomfortable questions. She avoided jargon. Mindy wanted truth and would accept nothing less.
To this day, Mindy is on her quest. She asked if having sex with Harvey Weinstein was the only way to becoming a successful movie actress. She wanted to know just how people could support Islam and homosexuality, two diametrically opposite positions. Mindy asked why a baker (a private business owner) must bake a cake or be charged with a crime, but Facebook (a private business owner) can ban whoever and whatever they say and be heralded as pillar of free-speech?
Mindy suddenly lost popularity among her peers. They wanted her silenced for making them uneasy. They charged her with hate crimes. Mindy asked if there were any crimes that did not involve hate. They eventually called her a racist.
Mindy asked them to define racist.
Mindy is still waiting for their answer.
Mindy will have to wait a very long time for their reply.
Maybe forever, if she wants a correct one.
if you saw me now
What would happen if I saw you right now?
If I broke down, would you comfort me?
If I ran, would you chase me?
If I ignored you, would you approach me anyway?
Or would you just turn away before you could see all of the pain written on my face?
