Crazy Times Scrapbook, January 2024

 January 2024, the first month of what I think is going to turn out to be a big year in the history of the country and the world.

The Economy


Get and stay out of debt—it's one of the best things you can do to be prepared and self-reliant.

Covid



"It was also a fact that covid infections and fatalities from the original strain dropped dramatically well before the vaccines were widely distributed."
"Why take an experimental vaccine for a virus with a 99.8% survival rate?"
That's been my thought exactly on the matter almost the whole time.

Presidential Politics




My prediction is that one way or another, this is likely to happen. 
Everyone knows that Biden can't do another four years. He and Jill refuse to leave, so I think something is going to happen to get him out of the race. That's when Michelle Obama will enter stage left. I think she's the only person who has a good chance of beating Trump sans election interference.

Moral Standards

This is what has happened, and it's so sad. 
We live in such a debased society now. I'm shocked by the things people do and by the content of TV shows, movies, books, songs, social media, etc. It just keeps getting worse. We have to be so careful about what we consume in order to avoid becoming captive or less discerning about the wicked ways of the world. 

I watched an interesting webinar done by a professor in Virginia about the state of the family. A lot of the stats are not promising. Satan's plan to destroy the nuclear family is happening right before our eyes. I speak from experience; it's affected my own no-longer nuclear family.



Well, the ex defied the odds on that one for us!



As a divorced single parent, I can sadly say that all three of the above are true.

Miscellaneous


Ironically, discrimination is the very thing DEI is purportedly trying to fight against.

This is a conspiracy theory that even I am skeptical about! (I do however see its merits! ­čść)

{Honestly, I'm so tired of Taylor Swift!}
