Should Children Witness Childbirth?

That's a good question... Here's your answer.

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a 3-yr old girl to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby.

Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked.

Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom.

Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-yr old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Kathleen quickly responded: 'He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place, smack him again!'

If you don't laugh at this one, there's no hope for you

Lawyer Michael Avenatti sentenced to 2.5 years

Michael Avenatti, the brash attorney who became a leading foe of then-President Donald Trump, was sentenced Thursday to 30 months in prison for a brazen botched scheme to extort athletic apparel giant Nike out of up to $25 million.

The attorney became a leading foe of then-President Donald Trump and Trumpís then-lawyer Michael Cohen while representing Stormy Daniels, whom Avenatti is separately charged with swindling.

Avenatti briefly flirted with seeking the Democratic nomination for president at the height of his fame.

Walmart is tempting me to steal from them

I haven't done it yet. But the temptation is getting stronger. Since our Walmart removed most of the checkout stations and replaced them with self-checkout, I feel like Walmart is forcing me to work for them. Because I'm forced to scan my own items, they're not paying wages to a checkout clerk. Even though I often used self checkout before, it pisses me off that now they're forcing me to.

If they're cutting their expenses by forcing me to scan my own groceries, why shouldn't I get some sort of compensation?

I mean, why can't I put a few smaller items in my bag without scanning them? Why shouldn't I be able to scan only three cans of tuna, when I'm buying four? What's wrong with touching the picture of cheaper apples, when the more expensive variety is on the scale.

If Walmart forces me to do their employees' work, isn't it only fair to force Walmart to give me compensation?

I've always considered myself an honest guy, but when Walmart steals my labor, I'm tempted to retaliate.

We got our first Moderna shot this afternoon

We're both feeling a little more tired than usual. Other than that, no side effects yet.

Looks like the Gamestop stock scam is on again

More than doubled in price yesterday, up over 50% today pre market.
Robinhood continues to suck novice investors into their bubble.
Let me guess, this pump 'n dump will end like the last one.

Thinking about changing my name to Axe

What do you think?

I'm glad Rush Limbaugh lived just long enough

to see trump lose the presidency and the republicans lose the Senate.
Other than that, I don't care about him. I won't miss him.

More pain for novice GameStop, AMC buyers

Both stocks tanking heavily pre market this morning following yesterday's sell off. The pump 'n dump play is now complete for the originators of this scam. They sold their positions last week, leaving millions of newbies holding the bag. It's a hard lesson for many who thought that somehow this was a "cause", and are now realizing it was a scam.
It's not everyday you get the opportunity to pay $300 for a $10 stock.

Last week's GameStop buyers feeling the burn

The hype from last week seems to have passed over the week end as both GME and AMC have been selling off since trading began in the pre market. GME alone is down 30%. Nothing brings traders back to reality like the sound of burning money. This was so predictable to experienced traders. The newbies are learning a hard lesson right now.

I don't often get emotional

But sitting here watching the inaugural events, my eyes can't stop tearing up. What a glorious day. What a huge relief. What a tremendous load will be taken off the shoulders of our country when Joe Cool finally takes the oath of office.
