What has come to my attention this week!
Bill Bennett, former Secretary of Education under President Reagan and who held the post of Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under President George H. W. Bush told Fox News Monday that smoking marijuana lowers your IQ. He noted that teens smoking marijuana for a week could lower their IQ by eight points.
He also noted that the THC content of today’s marijuana is four times higher than it was back 50 years ago.
“You can not walk down a street in New York City without smelling the order of marijuana,” Bennett noted.
He blames colleges, Hollywood and the media for the push toward Socialism. “If college graduates were Republicans, we would not be having this discussion about Socialism.”
“We are looking for a free lunch,” he said.
“Liberal extremists running for president such as California Senator Kamala Harris are trying to shame everyday Americans into believing every extreme idea on climate change by telling them it’s real and you either believe it, or you’re a moron. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sorry Kamala, 97 percent of Scientists do not agree on climate change,” –Patriotic Viral News.
I don’t know how everyone feels about climate change, but we have had almost 30 days of below zero weather this winter here in Wisconsin.
Monday morning it was 16 below zero with a wind chill of 31 below. That is not global warming.
“President Trump deserves all the credit in the world for attempting to bring an end to the Korean War after almost 65 years, denuclearizing the peninsula and, for encouraging North Korea to join the global economy. There haven’t been any nuclear tests or rocket launches for many months that, if nothing else, have made the endeavor worthwhile and dialogue possible when in 2017 it looked like war might be possible. Doing so protects American interests and national security, as well as the interests and security of North Korea’s neighbors and U. S. allies, South Korea, Japan and Australia. But North Korea’s demand that the sanctions come down without achieving full denuclearization had been a non-starter. Trump was right to walk away from what would have been a bad idea.”—Robert Romano, Vice President of Public Policy at American for Limited Government.
“The FBI report found violent crime decreased by 4.3 percent between 2017 and 2018. That represents a significant drop compared with last year when violent crime was down only by 0.8 percent. Robbery and burglary saw the largest decrease of the crimes tracked by the FBI with the former dropping 12.5 percent and the later dropping 12.7 percent. Arson dropped 9.4 percent, property crime fell 7.2 percent, murder was down 6.7 percent, larceny fell 6.3 percent, car theft fell 3.3 percent, and aggravated assault was down 2 percent. Rape, the only crime to see an increase, was up 0.6 percent.” –Washington Free Beacon.
In the United States, the Homicide rate, according to a report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, from 2006 and 2012 the average homicide rate in the United States was 4.9 per 100,000 people. That compares to the average globally rate of 6.2.
In 2017, 267 people died from homicide in Detroit, down from 303 the year before. In Las Cabos, Mexico, the homicide rate is 111.33.
While in El Paso, TX the rate is just 2.5.
And, folks, that’s more figures than one can absorb at one time.
