Good or Bad Sex Ends Up Controlling and Winning the Numbers Game

Sex Bio-ethnics Professor Katie Watson says a woman who regularly has sex once a week or more during her reproductive years will have to dodge at least 29 pregnancies if she has two kids and no abortions. So she will have to be very careful about the 1,040 times she has sex.

In an average life span of 80 years, a woman between the ages of 13 and 51 will have about 500 periods. During that…

A Shock to the Best Congress Money Can Buy: Money Eliminates Poverty!

An amazing revelation shocked conservative politicians of both political parties when COVID-19 virtually tanked the U.S. economy in 2020.

When the government agreed to increase and extend unemployment payments and prevent evictions and foreclosures for a period of time for poor people, the poverty rate went down! Who would believe such heresy, if you gave poor people money to keep…

Murder, Inc., Owned by Trumplicans, NRA, and Gun Culture, Is in All States

Large cities used to be the center of firearm murders. That’s where most of the guns were. Not anymore. With uncounted, unregistered hundreds of millions of guns sifting out into tiny towns in every state, in the possession of millions of people who should not have them, no one is safe from bullets.

We are also involved with three pandemics at the same time: COVID-19 and…

​Electricians or Lawyers?

It’s Time to Elect Electricians Instead of Lawyers

Lawyers have been screwing the American people for over a century. Currently we have 214 lawyers and only one electrician in Congress. It’s time to have 214 electricians and one lawyer because the BS slingers have been outgunning the electric slingers in bringing darkness to homes instead of light.

What would our country be like if we had nine electricians and no lawyers on the Supreme Court? It…

Do American Nazis ‘Critically Know’ What Hitler Brought to the World?

Since the 1930s and the rise of Adolf Hitler, some Americans have been enthralled by his racial ideology and his theory of inherent biological superiority of the White “race.”

One was my neighbor in Little Falls, Charles Lindberg. At one time my parents owned a house on the Mississippi just a few blocks north. I entered high school a year after World War II ended, so I was…

If This Country Isn’t Going to Hell, It’s Certainly Becoming One

In that most Christians today no longer believe in Christ’s messages, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason to remain one. On top of the Protestant and Catholic love for all things Trumpian, particularly judicial and political power, we have the patriarchal rulers of the Vatican, without any guidance of mothers who brought them into being, choosing to remain in the 13th century.…

In the Annual Battle of Virus and Bacteria vs. Brain, the Score Is Probably 8-3

Medical researchers have just determined that the average adult human body has four pounds of bacteria clinging to the outside and invading the inside of the body. The brain in the average adult weighs in at an inadequate three pounds.

Bacteria are free-living cells that can live inside or outside the body. Viruses such as COVID-19 and Delta are a non-living collection of…

Should We Care if a Woolly Mammoth Walked 43,500 Miles 17,100 Years Ago?

And by the way, Kik died of starvation when he was 28 years old. This intimate knowledge of this huge, hairy beast was learned from examining his nearly six-foot tusks, that added a level of exotic and plain material almost every day of his life.

It’s something about strontium isotopes in plants and soils, the teeth of rodents wherever he strolled, volcanic deposits, ancient…

Why Does the Sign by the Tallahatchie Bridge Have to Be Bulletproof?

I had Ben Eveslage for chemistry and physics at Little Falls High School. With his wild gray hair and on-tip-nose glasses, he looked like the mad scientist, and if you didn’t answer his questions precisely, he would give that “Don’t be so damn stupid” look -- and then grin. Science was very important to him and he passed science on.

Shubham quit his well-paying job in a media startup to manage the insurance coverage and the hundreds of medical bills. He spent his mornings analyzing the charges on new bills…
