For a immensely smart guy, he made one mistake… he let his intentions about how he was leaning politically be known way to soon. Politics is very tricky to navigate. They, the politicians, are very paranoid, thin skinned and most lack a sense of humor….. (most lack a sense of humor, the ones that don’t usually are outliers, not to be mistaken for lying out loud, and they are usually considered the best Presidents we had, i.e. Lincoln, heard he was a real hoot, Clinton, Obama, both Roosevelts and Ike. They didn’t necessarily have to be George Carlin, just watched his biopic on HBO, would not have made a great President but he knew that, that’s what made him great, but they could take a joke, while some could deliver them) given that our current political system resembles something like Ukraine, a battlefield, then a consortium for compromise ……so, imagine my surprise, when the most influential man in America voices his opinion on politics, this early. Now, I’m not passing judgement on their morality, the politicians, just on how politics and its political warfare that coincides with reputation ruining repudiation, if you piss off the wrong people, can get under your skin. (That’s a shitload of commas, more to come)
It took no time whatsoever to try and reduce how influential Elon is (he should think about going to the one name like Prince and Madonna and … is it Ye). Politics is extremely divisive….. The story that leaked seems and feels like a lot of bullshit, $250K from a multibillionaire… something is not right about that. I read the story and it’s kinda funny because I always get my massages with my underwear on and they ask me to take them off, could be because those brown stains that came with the underwear. I don’t know. That timing of the leaked story is a doozy. When Elon, or EF Musk or maybe Elon Hutton, you get it, speaks… people listen, not his fault, but with great twitter accounts comes great responsibility, who knows why. It shouldn’t be but it is and, well, this is where we’re at now in history.
Reputations are a lot like my stained underwear, that’s it…no clever quote behind it. Alright, maybe I should finish it, no one person’s is clean. And here’s a quote from another smart guy, lol, driving these atheists crazy, let that one person who has never had a stained underwear throw out the first stone. Something like that. In other words, and back to what I think of Elon’s situation, maybe it’s true but I’ll bet my last clean pair of fruit of looms that it ain’t, at least not the way they’re portraying it.
ABORTION GETS A KICK IN THE STOMACH
With abortion seemingly on 9 of a 10 count, people have taken the streets to try and save the Roe v. Wade decision. The conservative court put on its fight gear and is getting ready to take on the protestors, not to mention putting up fences around the building, which, nowadays, seems like a recurring occurrence. Right????, now do those fences designate a land border and can we be deported to crazy America from normal America if we are caught inside those fences. Reminds me of the movie Escape from New York, where they fenced off NYC and people that committed crimes were deported to NYC America from Normal America. While this is all very exciting, I’m old and like the law, in terms of legalities and illegalities, it does beckon another question, are they saying abortions are illegal or are they saying that States can ban the medical procedure, because abortions, by all intent and purpose, is just a medical procedure. Do the States have the right to ban a medical procedure? And does that mean my State can ban treatments or medical procedures for, lets say, incurable diseases or maladies that would be too expensive and put that money into helping the poor, building infrastructure, bettering schools and or maybe making roller coasters all the while forcing people with these diseases and maladies to go to other states to get help and relieving my state of money that would be spent on helping the final moments of the citizens that helped their state to become a better place. Is that right? Can States say which medical procedures are legal and which are illegal without it being a national ban?
Now, I’m not taking sides on the legality of abortion, I’m wondering if the different States can, that’s all. I don’t know that allowing the different States to make decisions on what can be considered a legal medical procedure and what can’t is a smart idea. If one State allows abortions then all states should, unless abortions are deemed illegal across the board, which is where this could be heading. While that is a loss for one political side, ultimately, it will be their biggest win, that’s just my prediction. My only concern is this two Americas scenario that keeps popping up, which seems to putting a strain on the unity of this country… man, where are those damn Martians when you need them, is becoming violent with protests and insurrections instead of just waiting for the day to vote and casting your ballot, like it should be. This country, I guess a lot like a lot of other countries, seems to be in constant conflict because they fear that they might just be happy if they weren’t and who wants that. It would be nice if it just was over a sports team because politics is extremely divisive, but you can’t always get what you want.
In my opinion, abortions will eventually be codified into law, because most people are in favor of it. Abortions are more of a moral question, especially with the older crowd, I’m not calling the Justices old, then a legal one, that’s why I’m surprised by the supposed decision. Small victories can lead to big losses. Again, I can be wrong. Nevertheless, I don’t think it’s a reason to picket, riot or protest (not their homes, by all means run amok outside the Court), but if you feel that strongly about it, it’s a great reason to vote. Here’s an interesting stastitc:

In other sidebar news… it’s sort of a pun…. Does anyone else believe that the leak could of came from anywhere, either side for varying reasons. I’m going with it was done on purpose with all in agreement to gauge public reaction. It could be…. you never know.
