BLINDED BY SCIENCE
It was a different kind of weekend, stressful, yet rewarding in many ways. Let’s start with reconnecting with an old friend from the drug cop days. I’ll get to introduce him to you next week as he has written, of all things, a children’s book. It rhymes, it has beautiful illustrations and who’d have thought the tough guy, cop types would have it in them? I was also honored to have the chance to proofread, edit and add commentary to a book another friend has written. I hope to introduce that one to you before long! Yesterday I was able to see another friend who’s had it pretty rough lately. It was a celebration that would bring tears to your eyes. And the news, the news would not stop piling up to the point we have the list below! We’ve got everything from a disgraced Florida Senator (well, he was a senator until Friday) to Bill Maher backing Ann Coulter-yes, you read that correctly!
SEXWARS: we have supposedly smart people saying gender can change daily, teachers wanting preschoolers to learn LGBT topics & cops patrolling in rainbow cruisers!
ED-WARS: we have students triggered by test questions (because we have trained them to be), a Florida teacher banning cross necklaces, Carolina parents upset over doomsday questions they claim are racist and a teacher’s union trying to ban competition in schools.
ENVIROWARS: the climate alarmists marched all over the country in support of their extremist, non-science based agenda (NOTE: if it were ACTUAL science, it would not rely on consensus and would not need a rally), it’s not about climate anyway, it’s about money and Bill Nye the not-so science guy can’t handle the truth!
DECISION WARS: The County Commission handed off its responsibility in the County manager search to a firm that will NOT serve our needs well. We’ll need to add candidates to the pool they provide or we won’t have the best of all possible choices.
