The New Police

Minneapolis Police have instructed their residents to give up their wallets, purses and cell phones when asked.

This will probably cut down on injuries and police confrontations.

Citizens are asked instead to call police with a clear description of the robbers.

They did not say how you are to call the police with this time sensitive-immediately-crucial information when your phones have just been stolen.

It is believed tipping is not necessary at this time.

A Bit Of Freedom For A While

Some weeks back, I saw a local restaurant offer a full meal and a beer delivered to your house for $15. Seemed a good deal to me and very simple and human. Very natural.

But I also thought, how did we ever get to to point where that was ---and probably will again be --- an illegal act?

Why do we elect people who create such laws -- to make such basic, simple, harmless, enjoyable and everyday services forbidden?

Feel The Pain

If the government leaders have ordered the economy to a full stop, and the economy fully supports their wages and benefits, shouldn’t their wages and benefits have come to a full stop too?
Or if the economy dropped 40%, shouldn’t their wages and benefits drop 40% too?
Feel the pain like everyone else! Share the pain. Don’t expect us to fully support your continued lavishness.

Against The Tide

What A Child Sees

A man decided he had enough of California and moved his family to Montana.
On the way, they stopped a few moments at the Venetian in Las Vegas. “To show them what Babylon looks like,” The dad said.
His five-year-old daughter looked all around with amazed eyes and then made these two observations: “They have plastic straws here! Can I keep one?” and “No one here wears masks!”
