General Discussion, Saturday, April 1, 2023

Once there was a tree. And she loved a little boy. And every day the boy would come and he would gather her leaves . . .

As the publisher describes it, “a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another’s capacity to love in return.”

    Happy Saturday! It actually feels like spring today, the grass is green – and it will be in the 20’s tonight! Actually, that typical here at the very beginning of April.

    If you want to see 3:30 of a brutal evisceration of the current Sec. of the Interior, by the former occupant of that chair, take a look at the tweeter embedded in this article. The current administration must have selected every one of their cabinet secretaries for their sheer level of incompetence. None of them know anything. (I know this is by design), but it just boggles the mind.

    Afternoon All. It is 41* here and overcast. If I stand still outside, I can see little snowflakes coming down here and there. It is supposed to snow for real this afternoon. I have a wedding shower to go to at 2:00 and I am going to have to drive to get there. Hope it doesn’t snow too much.

    Prayers for all the people in the paths of the storms. And, all of you stay safe.

    Nothing we do on our side is too trivial for the left not to go after you. Making memes about when to vote is now a crime. Tread lightly.

    Remember how the gubmint wanted to give you eazy-peazy tax credits to buy an EV. Not so fast kids……… That was then, this is now. Tax credit program being overhauled by some of those new IRS agents. Still think they want us to be able to drive around in a few years……….peasants….

    Re: The Giving Tree

    Not sure I see the boy’s/man’s love for the tree. He loved what it gave him, but gave no thought for the good of the tree.

    He squandered the gifts. Am I misunderstanding?

    Hello to all Stellas,
    This morning on WABC radio I was listening to Bo Snerdley’s Saturday Morning Radio Exstrvaganza Show and the comments were discussing a documentary that had been viewed on Russian TV. The comment was made, that Russia is not a communist country. That comment was followed by the question, after much discussion, was Russian President Putin more of a communist than AOC, Bernie Sanders and other members of the squad? For months I have said if Russia and President Putin were to invade this country, because of my dislike of the direction of the country I would take up arms and join the Russians!!!

    Oh my, this is quite a personal takedown of Brandon….

    Biden’s King Charles SNUB is an EXTRAORDINARY INSULT to Britain, says Mark Dolan
    Posted 4/1/23


    • Sharon says:

      I hope the Brits appreciate that normal Americans are glad he won’t be there, considering the number of stupid occasions Joke Biden has already ruined when in other nations.

      If they want him (for anything at all) they can have him, as far as I’m concerned.
