3. Eats: I give zero fucks about the Super Bowl, so I don't watch. If you do, enjoy! I might make wings though? Are you making anything? I'm always interested in new app recipes. I'm eating my feelings right now. If you're looking for something to make, what about hoagie dip, hot crab dip, or jalapeno popper dip?
4. Politics - Fascism (see how I bolded that so you can skip if you need to?): Trying to skate around everything that's been figuratively lit on fire to see what is important about how this administration is operating. This is not a Republican/Democrat thing anymore - this is resistance against tyranny and Steve Bannon. Check out The Immigration Ban is a Headfake, and We're Falling For It. This image of this Early Warning Signs of Fascism from the Holocaust Museum is going viral. What scares me more than this happening is my fellow Americans allowing it to happen because it's a pride/side thing right now.
And this happened while no one was looking last weekend - Bannon has been installed on the National Security Council and both the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have been removed until necessary. uhh, isn't their input always necessary in matters of National Security? WTF.
5. Protestors: I see a lot of these types of comments on Twitter and posts of people who are out marching for something: you're accomplishing nothing/get a job/you think you have it bad? Try living elsewhere in the world/You're embarrassing yourself/you are disrupting the natural order of things and inconveniencing people/what are you protesting/don't you have anything better to do/that's not going to change anything. I'm glad these groups here never listened when those things were said to them in their respective times and make no mistake, those exact things were said to them. If they had listened, if they had stopped...black people would still be drinking out of water fountains marked colored and getting hung for looking at white women and women would not be allowed to enter voting booths or have their own bank accounts. I wonder if people know how ridiculously un-American it is to tell people voicing dissent against the government that they don't belong out there on the streets. America was built out there on the streets. The right to assemble is so important it's in the Constitution. Are people unfamiliar with American history? Or are they just the portion of the population who wishes these people below DID go home, so they were still in their place? p.s. if you can't or don't want to hit the streets, there are other things that you can do - it takes an across the board effort to make change - all boxes need to be ticked and change won't come from just one avenue, it will come from people working many avenues. Choose your lane.
6. The funny side of politics: Both of these had me roaring this week. I typically will not share things with grammatical errors but I was seriously crying after I saw Amanda share the first one last night. The one on the right has been seen around the Southeast PA area.
8. Weather: Skies so lovely in the winter, days so cold. Philly love running errands near the office on Tuesday. Once upon a time I dreamed of being in Punxsutawney for Groundhog's Day. Maybe someday.
What's new with you?
