When Salad Isn’t Healthy . . .

Seems to me that with the general lack of discipline in the world, why are we surprised when some of our healthy groceries are not always grown, prepared for market, and placed in the stores for sale in the most humanly best condition? That’s when we have to get proactive on our own behalf and either raise such vegetation for ourselves or make sure we clean what we purchase far and above what we think it will need.

My rules are:

Nothing goes into my refrigerator that isn’t washed.

No bagged greens and lettuce. Yes, the packages claim they have been washed two or three times . . . but no mention about whether the water was changed all those times.

Always disinfect salad greens and vegetables.

If the fruit or melon has a skin, actually soap and water wash the outside before cutting through to the inside. Think about it! When the knife goes through a tainted skin, it could be dragging whatever germs, etc., that are sure to be on the outside across the fruit you are going to eat on the inside.

Ever think about washing a banana before handing it to your child? Why not? The peel protects the banana but what will protect you from the peel that has been around while and touched and handled in shipping and in the store.

Our Brave New World . . .

There is a faction of ‘experts’ who would prefer that at the birth of your baby, you should not immediately pin a gender into their profile of life. The doctor should announce, “You have a healthy baby!” I guess when you change your baby later on you should ignore the obvious.

Now, it seems a title for babies is being pronounced. People are having ‘theybys’. What joy to announce to the world that you have just delivered into the world a child missing a gender assignment even though God, had, in fact,
provided physical proof.

I prefer the olden days when the grandfather stated definitely that he wanted a grandson and called the new baby a boy for his dynasty. I was thrilled when after having had a BOY, I delivered a baby girl and happily informed the grandmother that she now had a granddaughter.

Yes, there seem to be problems with identity for some people and they can deal with the issue in a way that works for them. I don’t think, however, that a minority should dictate to the majority what they can or should title their infant. As to a child figuring out life for him or herself. . . Look around the world today. Many of the college students haven’t figured themselves out yet or faced the realities of the world with sense and sensibility. Why would anyone think that an infant to toddler-aged baby would be at a point in life to make life changing decision.

Democrats and Reason . . .

Never ask how low the democrats can go to push their own agenda because they work very hard at trying to see how low they can go.

Now, isn’t it true that democrats donate funding to their various agendas and if they have a group or business that would welcome money in turn for supporting their democratic brethren, I have yet to hear anyone threaten or chastise them. Remember how they supported the restaurant that kicked out Sarah Sanders?

Well, In-N-Out dared to donate a check to the Republican faction and you’d think they had presented the check in person with a mob carrying disrespectful banners about the conservatives. You know, like the democrats usually handle things? Nope, In-N-Out gave the Republicans¬† a donation and the democrats didn’t like it so they, as usual, verbally attacked and started another turmoil in town.

Well, I have taken note of this concern. We have an In-N-Out within walking distance from home. I’m thinking of going over there these weekend and give them . . . money in exchange for one of their great hamburgers and fries. Maybe I will give them a twenty and force them to have to make change. That will show them, right!

No Changes If The State Disapproves?

I came across this information this morning and cannot believe that a person’s freedom of choice can be against the law if the choice doesn’t come under what the State wants rather than the individual.

People should have choices and even if one doesn’t always approve of another person’s choices, it should be their choice, right? Not according to a new bill being considered seriously in the State of California. The bill will make it unlawful for a person who is gay to decide to seek counseling because they might want to change their sexual identity. The law would also take away the right to separation of church and state as even a priest, rabbi, or minister would not be allowed to do counseling to that effect.

I’ve been coming across this information for the last week or so and am wondering if NOW, our priests and bishops will stand up and speak against this bill as it does affect the way they can deal with parishioners in conflict legally.

In California, we tend to avoid musing over ‘what next’ as the future ‘what next’ is always worse than the last one. Don’t we have enough serious problems in California to keep our government busy that they seem to feel they have to meddle in everyone’s personal life? It’s truly not constitutional but that hasn’t really stopped many politicians up to now.

And the rest of the country shouldn’t get too complacent because the liberal factions are constantly trying to make the changes they want not the the changes that truly benefit the citizens.
