Today opens with the reminder of the 3-year anniversary of the phrase, "15 days to slow the spread." Following that, I talk a moment about the start of March Madness and the brackets we all love to fill out. This leads to my spending a few minutes recollecting some of my earliest memories as a child through my early teenage years. There is a reason for that. I need everyone to remember your own earliest memories as a child through your pre-teen and early teenage years. It's the bridge to our first news topic.
Yesterday, in a speech, Minnesota's Lt. Governor, Peggy Flanagan, defending the need for child genital mutilation and abuse, said, "When our children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them. That's what it means to be a good parent." False! That is the way to describe being one of the worst parents you can be. We are not there to let their childish fantasies be taken for reality. A parent should encourage the imaginations of their children, but they are also there to guide them and keep them grounded in the real world.
Unfortunately, for 15-20 years, we have allowed these children to grow up and let their fantasies fool them into thinking they were real. And, to deal with this mentally unwell way of thinking, they have even come up with a term to provide cover for their mental illness – woke. They have convinced themselves that they are the only ones truly "awake" and it's the rest of us who are lulled into sleep. But, that's just not true. Just as how Democrats label bills to say one thing, but the bill does the opposite, so too is the definition of woke. They may convince themselves they are awake, but it is the opposite. They live in a world of make-believe, devoid of the elements of reality.
This leads to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen testifying today to Congress telling them the Banking Sector remains sound. Well, if her track record for accuracy is any indication, we may be in for some deep trouble. The main problem is the risks many other banks may have taken similar to SVB. Investments based on low to no interest rates now result in large losses. Is it possible the reason the government set aside billions to shore up SVB and potentially others is this is their first move toward a cashless society? Is that why they shut the world down exactly three years ago today?
Finally, to bring a little levity, we bring another installment of Deep Thoughts with VP Kamala Harris. I knew her interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert would bear fruit and it certainly has. Enjoy!!
