I’m watching a football game…

We’re at a friend’s house with several people watching a football game.

There are discussions about players, tactics and strategies going on.

There’s a woman who knows a lot about football and has a lot of knowledge on the subject.

It’s getting painful watching the group of men constantly cut her off and never letting her get a word in.

do the men patiently wait for one another as each one makes his point?

They allow each other to finish or make points. They don’t even acknowledge she’s talking.

I text my husband, who is here, that I saw it happening and he’s made a point to ask her what she was saying and respond to her when others are talking over her which has helped.

THESE ARE ELEMENTS OF TOTALITARIANISM INCASE SOME OF Y’ALL WERE WONDERING

you know shit is bad when a HEALTH AGENCY can’t say ‘science based’……..

Can’t use “diversity” when talking about ecology or bacteria or genetic populations.

Can’t use “fetus” when talking about diseases that can harm the development in the unborn.

Can’t use “transgender” when analyzing at-risk (for violence, homelessness, drug addiction, or disease) populations of teens and adults.

Can’t use “evidence/science-based” to show how they came to certain conclusions.

The CDC isn’t alone.

HHS has also been made to remove their LGBT information page from their website, and they are gradually dropping questions about gender-identity from surveys.

The EPA hired a firm to investigate their own people to see if any of them show an anti-Trump bias.

Many agencies are no longer allowed to use the phrase “climate change” or even imply that it exists. Even as fires consume the west coast and flooding washed through our cities and towns in the south. ALL DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE.

We are seeing the systematic destruction of our government agencies that were meant to protect and serve the people. Now, they only protect and serve Trump.

Five years ago today: the Sandy Hook Shooting (14 Dec. 2012)

‘‘… History remembers the killer’s name and rarely does history remember the name of the victim, … Everyone should read the names and look at the faces of the people who lost their lives that day… Take a moment to remember them…’’

You’re like the only adult I follow that…

You’re like the only adult I follow that’s active at the moment so please answer my question. Is it possible that if my mom had a slight cold and gave it to me, that it could turn into the flu? I’m chronically ill and I don’t know if that might cause that but i feel really sick now

No.
The common cold and the flu are two different viruses.
