Colleges Now Teach Students HOW To SPEAK to Each Other

***This is almost all an opinion piece.  I may not be right about the subject but I think I have insight to share***

Intergroup dialogue isn’t a new class, but it’s the first time I’ve heard of it.  You can pay your college to teach you how to talk to other students and even navigate the strange world of disagreeing with people.

Religion, the president, and the Mueller Report can all be catalysts for potentially damaging arguments and online fights.

The Mueller report has lots of people talking this week, and Central Michigan University wants to teach their students how to talk through controversial topics respectfully.

Their Intergroup Dialogue Program takes a deeper look at how to handle these kinds of conversations face to face and online.

9 and 10 News in Michigan

That’s right, all these terrible – no good – bad – damaging arguments can now be talked about in the safe space of your local college.  Have we become so reliant on college that we need it to learn to speak to one another?  What is the point of high school if anything worth while learning comes from college?  Am I such a boomer that I think it’s insane that we aren’t teaching the next generation to speak to each other and disagree until COLLEGE?!  Here is another passage talking about what should be common sense, from the article at 9 and 10 news.

PAIRS stands for Pan, Ask, Interrupt, Relate and Share.

Each word in the acronym can help you have a more meaningful conversation with someone who you disagree with.

Pan: Pan the environment and notice your feelings and those of other people. Gauge what impact your statement makes to the group.

Ask: Ask for more specifics about a person’s comment or behavior. Ask without judgement and seek to understand.

Interrupt: Slow down the conversation if you need to take a step back if things get too heated.

Relate: Show that you’re empathetic to another person and see if your own experiences have common ground with someone else’s.

Share: Disclose stories, examples or feelings you have related to the flow of conversation.

I can’t be the only one that feels all this is basic human interaction.  I feel like this is something our elementary students should be learning.  Our high schools certainly aren’t creating any substantive skills anymore, college has taken over that entirely and that isn’t a good thing.  As college opens up to more people, you have to adjust the standards so students aren’t left behind, and the college needs to keep its statistics up so they can continue to get more students.  With lower standards brings more students with lower IQ’s, which perpetrates them to let more students get degrees with lower standards to keep the statistics up.  Now you have more lower IQ students getting more degrees and when they hit the real world their degrees are useless.  What’s next, is college going to become the new high school and there be another form of “higher” education?  We haven’t even got into the crushing debt.

Never Ending Russian HOAX, Pelosi and Schumer Call Mueller to TESTIFY

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer don’t seem to understand the purpose of the Mueller report. Since it came out and it did not implicate Donald Trump in a Russian collusion scheme, they are calling on Robert Mueller to appear in front of Congress and the Senate to testify. Attorney General William Barr made it pretty clear there was no collusion, and considering Robert Mueller worked with William Barr to get this report out, I don’t see this being very productive. This is why investors say to diversify, people with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) have put all their gambits into this one issue and the house just called to collect the debt.

“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality. We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible. The American people deserve to hear the truth.”

The TDS is so bad, this guy even got Robert Mueller tattoo’d on his back, and he is STILL doubling down and wants the entire report tattoo’s. He claims to be a comedian at least, and comedy is subjective.

Robert Mueller’s CONFLICT of Interest With Donald Trump was Because of… Golf?

Today in clown world, on page 78 of volume two of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller report on Russian involvement, Donald Trump slumped in his chair and said, Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m screwed with an F.” I paraphrased that end of the quote to be more family friendly. Why did Donald Trump think he’s screwed with an F?

A conflict of interest? I remember him saying something about this during a speech he made, but I didn’t remember the details. After a little digging, I think I found the answer on Golf Digest (click here for full article)? Being the head of the FBI sounds boring, so we are going to focus on the golf part of this story.

Screenshot 2019-04-12 at 9.34.14 PM-01

In the days following the Special Counsel’s appoint, the President repeatedly told advisors, including Priebus, Bannon, and McGahn, that Special Counsel Mueller had conflicts of interest. The President cited as conflicts that Mueller had interviewed for the FBI Director position shortly before being appointed as Special Counsel, that he had worked for a law firm that represented people affiliated with the Presidents, and that Mueller had disputed certain fees relating to his membership in a Trump golf course in Northern Virginia.

In October 2011, Mueller resigned his family’s membership from Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, in a letter that noted that “we live in the District and find that we are unable to make full use of the Club” and that inquired “whether we would be entitled to a refund of a portion of our initial membership fee,” which was paid in 1994.

Golf Digest, excerpt from Mueller Report

So it turns out the Mueller family never received their refund, so finally, Robert Mueller can get his revenge on the man that didn’t refund his gold membership. OR, Robert Mueller didn’t really care to much about Donald Trump being a cheap skate and was just going to do his job. If I had to take a guess, Donald Trump over reacted to the news due to growing frustration on this subject.

Bannon told the President that the golf course dispute did not rise to the level of a conflict and claiming one was “ridiculous and petty.”

Golf Digest

So there you have it, Robert Mueller should never have investigated Donald Trump and Russia because of an unpaid golf membership refund. Good thing Mueller didn’t go to the Trump College. Now that the investigation showed no collusion, maybe Trump will finally give him his refund. If anyone has more information on this, leave it in the comments!

The fast food restaurant, Carl’s Jr. will begin testing CBD infused burgers in Denver.  It’s going to be for sale for one day, April 20th, for $4.20.  The references couldn’t smack you in the face harder, oh wait… It’s called the Rocky Mountain High Cheeseburger.  It is two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries and 5 milligrams of CBD mixed in their Santa Fe Sauce.  Carl’s Jr. will take claim to the first fast food restaurant to feature food with CBD.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THCCBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

Project CBD

CBD seems to have made some progress for treating epilepsy, anxiety, inflammation, sleep deprivation, depression, and as an anti-psychotic.  But it is still is unproven in most of these fields, but there is hope or they wouldn’t be testing these areas.  There is also a lot of concern about CBD since it isn’t regulated…

A 2017 study led by Bonn-Miller found that nearly 7 of 10 CBD products didn’t contain the amount of marijuana extract promised on the label.

WebMD

Also 1 in 5 of the tested CBD products did contain THC, which makes seizures worse for epileptic patients.  There also hasn’t been enough studies on how CBD can interact with peoples other medications, that could potentially be a time bomb for those not paying attention.

I’m not an expert in this subject, I’ve actually actively avoided marijuana.  I wouldn’t eat something with CBD in it, but that’s just me.  I’ll have to take people’s word for it if it helps with these problems or not, so sound off in the comments section about it.  Good luck Carl’s Jr. with you trial, and if this really does have as many benefits as people are always talking about, great!

Don’t worry about the title to the video below too much, they do give some information about CBD that you may be interested in hearing about.

No COLLUSION? You Can Read the MUELLER Report, TOO!

A redacted version of the Mueller report was posted online for everyone to read here (or download here)! The report is 448 pages and has some lines blacked our with “HOM” or “Harm to Ongoing Matter” on top of it.

In case you’ve been living in your parents basement with not internet connection, the Mueller report is from Special Counsel Robert Mueller III for his “Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.” No one except Mueller’s team or Attorney General William Barr and his staff has seen this report, until now!

You CAN read it now… Or you can get it from Barnes and Noble on Nook, and an Amazon Kindle version but those will cost some money.

As for all wins that Donald Trump gets, he boasts on social media as a master troll.

For your viewing pleasure, here is Attorney General William Barr’s press conference on the Mueller report.

Ohio Democrat DEMANDS African American Women Get EXTENSION for Abortion

Before we begin, let it be known I am not for abortion. If that bothers you, you probably shouldn’t read on.

The latest state to pass a “heartbeat bill” is Ohio. It basically bans abortions after a heart beat can be detected, which is about six weeks into a pregnancy. The bill is going to go into effect in a few months, but the ACLU is trying to stop that by suing the state. But that isn’t even the story yet!

If it was up to Democrat, Janine Boyd, the bill would have left an exemption for African American woman to abort until 20 weeks (which is what the current Ohio law is). During a state House Health Committee meeting, she proposed Amendment 0291 which would’ve done just that. However, she was denied the amendment – Thanks goodness. You can watch it here if you jump to 51:45

“Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves. Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”

– Janine Boyd

So let me get this straight, this law maker wants to add an exemption to kill black babies later than white babies? Isn’t that racist? This is clown world people, we really are living in it right now!

I do not condone abortion, the very least controversial abortion would be before the heartbeat. So to wait ANY longer than that is just plain evil, also this…

Considering that the total current Black American population is about 42,000,000, the 20,350,000 Black American abortions are equal to 48.45% of the total Black American population.

Walter B. Hoye II

Since 1967, 20,350,000 black babies were aborted. Black children are almost equally being aborted as they are being born, that is extraordinarily sad. And people like Janine Boyd are actively encouraging the death of African American unborn babies. I’ll end with the video that persuaded me of the evils of abortion.

Netflix PROVES it is WOKE With Public Service Announcement

Netflix, the movie streaming company that proved to me that I’m actually a boomer because I remember a time they used to send DVD’s through the mail, has a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT! The best kind of announcement, especially while Notre Dame was literally on fire, they decided to let everyone know that the term “chick flick” has got to go.

Screenshot 2019-04-12 at 9.34.14 PM-01

Quick PSA: Can we stop calling films “chick flicks” unless the films are literally about small baby chickens? Here’s why this phrase should absolutely be retired

For starters, “chick flicks” are traditionally synonymous with romantic comedies. This suggests that women are the only people interested in 1. Romance 2. Comedy. Which I can promise from the men I’ve come across in my life – simply isn’t true.

There aren’t sweeping categories specific to men. You don’t hear people asking to watch “man movies” – instead, pretty much every intersection of genre is on the table and seen as for men, except of course, the aforementioned rom-coms.

The term also cheapens the work that goes into making these types of films. Romantic comedies and/or films centered around female leads go through just as much editing, consideration, and rewriting as any other film.

And nicknaming films “chick flicks” drives home that there’s something trivial about watching them. But what’s trivial about watching a film that makes you feel 1,000 emotions in ~90 minutes?

Overall, there’s nothing inherently gendered about liking a light-hearted film with a strong female lead and emotional arc. So next time you call something a “chick flick,” you better be referring to Chicken Run

– Thread of Tweets from Netflix

My main issue I take with this is that there ARE movie categories targeting men. What kind of movie is Die Hard? Or the Terminator? Their target audience was men, does anyone care if we called them bro films? There is a video game dedicated to the “Bro” genre of movies called Broforce. I’ve never heard anyone call a chick flick a chick flick because it’s derogatory.

On a more serious note, do people even use the term anymore? I don’t think I’ve heard it in about ten or so years. So maybe Netflix is the bigot here. So thanks for the lecture Netflix, I’m so glad you shared that with us. By the way… Get woke get broke as Jeremy from the Quartering says.
