If you’re thinking of climbing Mount Everest you might be shit out of luck. The Sherpas are people who guide climbers up the dangerous peak and they are thinking of shutting down their services due to the numerous avalanches that have been happening on the mountain. The last avalanche killed at least 13 Sherpas and the guides have flat out stated they don’t make enough money to put their lives in danger.
Here we go again … the USA has vowed to send aid to Ukraine and troops to East Europe. After meeting with Ukrainian lawmakers, Vice President Joe Biden said that 600 troops will be sent to Poland and three Baltic states to conduct exercises. The USA is also providing $50-million in assistance to the country. Hey, what about putting $50-million into our health care system so people like me can still afford health insurance? I make too much to get Obama care and my rates have doubled. I guess war with Russia is a better plan???
Police in New York City wanted people to send in photos via Twitter of people posing with police officers. They thought it would create good will and be a benefit to the force. Oops … that didn’t work! People started sending in photos depicting police brutality and hundreds of photos show people being beaten and bloodied by police. Nice try guys but be careful what you ask for!
Last but not least … The median per capital income in the USA is $18,700 and it hasn’t changed since 2000. No wonder our country is so fucked up! Everything has gone up: gasoline, food, housing, insurances (and everything else) except our income. It shocks me that the government doesn’t see that! …. Stetson University law school graduates had the highest passing grade rate for the Florida Bar Exam last year …. Drew Barrymore had a baby girl yesterday …. Have a great Hump Day!
