Evenings I will sometimes find a video to watch on my computer while sewing or crocheting. A couple of nights ago I was scrolling through YouTube videos. I understand that many videos are fake, just to get clicks, but many seemed to be somewhat true.

I watched an argument over whether men can become pregnant.
I watched a Senate inquiry of potential judges who were unable to define a woman.
I watched parents at a school board meeting reading pornography from books that are found in elementary school libraries, only to be hauled out of the meetings. Apparently, it's OK for third graders to read what is too deranged for school board member's sensitive ears.
And there were countless videos of people screaming at one another over trivial matters.

We honored the American flag and and all things patriotic.
The direction we seem to be taking is sure to continue with all things hateful.
Saw a t-shirt the other day that had printed on the front, "Stupid Should Hurt."
