Pew released an interesting survey on race relations. 56% of Americans believe the Idiot Jerk in the White House has made things worse. What I find interesting is that when you break it down, only 49% of white people see things as going downhill under his administration. Statistically speaking, that would mean that about half of all white people see him as creating a more racist atmosphere. Of the 51% who seem him as not responsible, you have to remember he has a 43% approval rating. Deduct that and you find that about 8% of Americans don't see him as being accountable. Who are these people? Hell if I know. I think the survey highlights a very sad note about a majority white Americans: since it doesn't effect them personally, they don't see it as a problem. I suspect this is the same group of people who didn't pay attention at school, didn't learn anything in science class. Telling them they are on their way to becoming a minority is about as realistic as telling them they've been signed up for a vacation on the moon. For them, 'real' is only what is right in front of their nose, anything else fails to elicit a response in their neurotransmitters. Oh... well, this is how survival of the fittest happens.
I set up the pasta maker to see how it works. You need to clamp it down because the blades are quite heavy. This will be interesting.
And, since I've been playing around making little video clips, I thought I show you all a tiny shot of part of my kitchen. I do have plants... and shutters. The snake plant in the owl (on the right hand side) is old.... very old. I got that from my Grandma, that's right, you saw her a few days back. Originally it was in a yellow plastic 'Art Deco' planter which survived neither its growth, nor the tests of time.
Besides the snake plant, there are aloe plants, an orchid (which isn't blooming right now), and my squash plants., and a jar of peanut butter I use for baiting mouse traps. In case you didn't know, I do have some luck at making things grow.
This week we've had days in the upper sixties and sunny and today it's windy and it'll be upper thirties and dark and wet, so I feel you.ReplyDelete
And this was interesting: "I think the survey highlights a very sad note about a majority white Americans: since it doesn't effect them personally, they don't see it as a problem." So, so very true. That's Cheeto's base. Those are the idiots that got us in this fuckery.
And of course we have faith in your ability to make things grow! LOL
We have the same plants: snake plant, aloe and orchids! I don't have squash plants though. I think I'd need to live in a house for those....
It was near 80 here yesterday, though quite rainy.ReplyDelete
Toady will be more of the same, without the waterworks.
_____ is a racist and those who don't think so are cut from the same cloth.

He better leave. I never saw an administration, where every single day their is a negative news piece or some drama. And with him it's always the good best or worst of anything...ever. . Keep eating those unhealthily foods trump and clog those arteries fat boy.ReplyDelete
