Chopping grass silage takes some concentration as I try to keep the machine full to optimize efficiency. I can still listen to the radio and I’m seldom shocked anymore.
They were talking about the Supremes overturning the Texas abortion regs that made it “necessary” to travel over 100 miles to receive reproductive healthcare. No kidding. That’s what they said.
Tonight Dawn and I started a movie (The Good Lie) about Sudanese children walking hundreds of miles fleeing war, their parents murdered by heroes, as we call them nowadays. One kid died of thirst, another died of disease, another was conscripted, another was gunned down by the heroes. We got sleepy and that is where we left it ’till later. It all seemed just happenstance. Circumstance. Chance.
But in Texas these women were cheering like they won the lotto at the news of the court decision, I mean hysterically.

Since Brett mentioned Lincoln and Brexit (the other big news item of the day that never had a single thing describing why but just uncertainty. Bank stocks down 3% to 16% still doesn’t come close to justice considering years of inflationary government policies and fractional reserve banking), it got me thinking of Texit.

Would you like to live in a state that allows mothers to murder their children?
