1. Nothing. I want nothing. 

I’ve never rooted harder for anything to happen in my life. I’m specifically speaking about Washington where something happening right now is much worse than nothing. A common complaint regarding our electeds historically has been that of having politicians that “do nothing”. Given the implications of the legislation currently being debated in Washington, anything is far worse. That’s why today marks a good day because nothing continues to happen in Washington D.C., which is much better than unaffordable legislation that’d radically transform the United States into a quasi-socialist country with spiraling inflation. So, here’s to another day of nothing. 

2. A good test.

The biggest story of the day was about Facebook’s properties being taken down for almost the whole day. Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp. We’re fresh off of the news that Facebook’s execs have known their products are harmful to people, especially young females, and that their response has simply been to exploit it. We know that it took a whistleblower to reveal the truth, which is to say there’s clearly dissent in the ranks. Think of all the software engineers who think it’s cool to actively seek and exploit the self-esteem of girls.

Now I have nothing to go on other than the timing, the evidence presented and a base level understanding of what it would take to bring all of its platforms down at the same time. In the event it was an external hacker, it likewise was likely targeted due to the damage done by Facebook that’s been revealed. I’ve said for a while that there’s little doubt in my mind that the world would be better off without social media generally, that’s especially true of those run by the big three. Thus, there’s little doubt in my mind the world was a better place for a few hours yesterday. It was a good test. 

3. The Fauch who stole Christmas

Fauci's Face the Nation interview made the rounds Monday for all of the wrong reasons. While many of us safely spent the holidays with our families last year, Dr. Fauci was still saying it’s too soon to know about this year. He said, "Just too soon to tell. We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time." Right. And from the same person who declared on September 7th that college football games were going to be super spreader events, right? Apparently, he realized that as he clarified yesterday saying, "I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people, who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family. The way all of the other disinformation goes around, you say something talking about a landmark of a time, and it gets misinterpreted that I’m saying you can’t spend family Christmas time, which is nonsense. You can." Well, thank you, Dr. Fauci, I was waiting until you granted me the authority to do so.

Ironically his clarification was more revealing than his original statement. He said, "I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people, who are protected, to have a good normal Christmas." So, in other words, be sure to discriminate among your family. Check vaccination status and handle the unvaccinated family members accordingly. And he let us know that we can spend time with family. I’ll be with my unvaccinated mom this Christmas. She’s allergic to them. We’ll also celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, who happens not to be you.
