Is it Flip or Flop?

As a twenty-one year old in my house said yesterday, “Yeah, I wasn’t going to vote for him anyway.” Newsweek reports that Michael Bloomberg isn’t just flushing millions down the toilet to be considered a presidential candidate. He’s flushing the millennial vote with it:

Former New York City Mayor—and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate—Michael Bloomberg called efforts to legalize marijuana “perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done.”

Speaking at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Tuesday, Bloomberg said on the subject, according to WBNG-TV:

“We have a different kind of problem in America, for example. Last year, in 2017, 72,000 Americans [overdosed] on drugs. In 2018, more people than that are OD-ing on drugs, have OD’d on drugs. And today, incidentally, we are trying to legalize another addictive narcotic, which is perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done. We’ve got to fight that, and that’s another thing that Bloomberg Philanthropies will work on it in public health.”

The position from the billionaire politician would seem to be out of step with Democratic leaders in his state and liberal voters nationwide.

YA THINK?

    Doubt he’ll get the nomination, I won’t vote for him if he makes the primary. I’ll have to vote for him if he make the election though.

    Den, all I have to do is CTL and the+ and I can make the print bigger. It helps a little, but when pieces of the words you’re looking at are missing, no matter how much bigger the print is, I can’t read it.

      I know very little about age-related macular degeneration..just that it’s serious, can be slowed down in some cases, and is incurable.

      Carol …you wrote “when pieces of the words you’re looking at are mission…”

      That must be so difficult for you. I hope having Nick lifts your spirits some!

      I just read this at an AMD website… “have holes punched in it…” must be ie your missing parts of words.

      Among those 75 and older, more than 25 percent have some signs of age-related macular degeneration, and 6 percent to 8 percent have the advanced stages. It is incurable, and there is no proven treatment for the early and moderate forms of the disease. Those with later stage age-related macular degeneration have limited therapeutic options.

      If your vision starts to change, especially if your central vision seems to have holes punched in it, go to a doctor immediately

    Jill surprised me this morning, texted me about going out for lunch. We ended up at Los Tres Amigos so I had my two Margaritas.

    I’m waiting for my grandson to be dropped off. Pete and Sara are going to a concert in either Kalamazoo or Grand Rapids and Nick can stay here with me. It will be good to have some company since I’m a bit depressed.
