Crazy Times Scrapbook, April 2022

 Well the good thing about my Crazy Times posts if for some "crazy" reason you don't enjoy them 😁 is that they're getting shorter since my time to peruse the news has been getting shorter because of work. I changed my Wall Street Journal subscription this spring to only getting the print copy once a week instead of six days a week. I miss it, but unfortunately I don't have the time to read it every day anymore. I still get it every day on the app, but it's not the same. If I don't have a physical paper, then I'm less likely to read it. But of course, I still follow the news and I'll continue to do these posts because the times we live in continue to be crazy and (not to be a pessimist) I believe they're going to get worse.

April's post is especially short because of what a busy month it was!

Good for Oklahoma! 

And good for the Supreme Court to finally right the monumental wrong that was done 49 years ago. I'm overjoyed by their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The incredibly tragic irony of this when you think of the Democrats' positions on racial equity, social justice, and abortion rights is jarring.

Don't get either of them! They're not worth it.

This silly mask mandate got struck down in time for our Florida trip, which we were able to enjoy entirely mask-free. 🙌

This is totally appropriate. And contrary to popular uninformed opinion, the bill doesn't mention the word "gay" at all. What is wrong with people? I'm very disappointed, though not surprised, by Disney's reaction. 

This makes some very interesting points about Ukraine, Russia, and American imperialism.
