I share this a lot. RESEARCH local/state candidates, don’t guess.

-Read your local news
-Mine candidates’ FB/social media feeds (not your friends’ feeds).
-This resource helped me in the last election: https://www.lwv.org/electi...

Others? Please share. #vote

Vet your candidates! Local and state elections matter more than ever. MAGA candidates are winning these elections due to voter apathy and inattention.

I’m kind of laughing at a segment on GMA about what to do with kids on this Global Day of Unplugging. Growing up in the country, without cable, and a single landline phone, mine would have involved playing records, reading, or playing outside. #Unplug

Happy Friday, friends! I hope it’s sunny where you are. It’s a busy day today, running my mom to some appointments, and then gearing up for a busy weekend. Have a great day, everyone. ❤️

Last night I participated in Basic Life Support training to get certified in that again. It was a good refresher. As a caregiver, or anywhere, I hope to never have to use it. ❤️🤞

I just completed mandatory IRB (Institutional Review Board) training to apply for an exception for a proposed research survey. One of the things the training covered was reporting of unexpected research outcomes. I was telling one of my friends in Research about it and they sent me this meme. 🤣

“Strong evidence shows that a higher intake of ultra-processed foods was associated with approximately 50% higher risk of cardiovascular disease-related death and common mental disorders,” said lead author Dr. Melissa Lane, a postdoctoral research fellow at Deakin, in an email.

It’s highly unethical. And while we are at it, physicians and social media influencers should not be paid to promote and hawk pharmaceuticals.

I don't believe there should be commercials for prescription medications. Over the counter stuff like cold medicine or headache medicine, fine. But not diabetic medicine or blood pressure medicine.

“In 2020 TV ad spending of the pharma industry accounted for 75 percent of the total ad spend.”

Catch the trend line in the chart. Pharma advertising should be banned in the US.

Another hitch - pharma and healthcare are the top (or among the top) advertisers on networks like MSNBC and CNN. Huge conflicts of interest all over the place. Making us more anxious and depressed, while pushing their products & services for treatment.

They often prey on people who actually suffer from depression, and anxiety. Because I said from the top, this kind of fear, doomsaying, and defeatism sells clicks/papers/ads. The biggest thing you can do to protect yourself from this is to turn off the news media for a bit.

"Had McConnell retired in January 2021 & led the conviction of Donald Trump his legislative legacy would’ve been about the same & he would’ve saved the country from the anti-democratic threat he saw clearly. We would not be on the precipice we are on now if not for his cowardice."

So many feelings about Mitch McConnell. And none of them good. He could have seen to the actual, and truly deserved, impeachment conviction of 45. But didn’t. The current political rot in this country rests with white men of his cohort, inherited from their daddies. May they all rot.

Rough night last night with the storm, wind, and tornado sirens - fortunately no damage in my neighborhood. Thinking of everyone from TX to east coast with this weather.

Winter is back, for the day at least, so it's a big pot of beef & black bean chili for dinner. #SpoutibleCooks

MSM wants Americans and the world to think there are no Americans like this woman. When, in fact, there's a whole lot more Americans like her than the ones usually put forth in the press. (Video via Acyn)

I seem to remember a time where taking foreign money for a political campaign was so illegal they bothered laundering it through the NRA.

Yep ... and they don't even try to hide their allegiance anymore.
Funny that MAGA waves the US flag when they should be waiving the Russian one instead

“I think my sociopathy is entirely beneficial to me. I see my friends struggling with guilt. On an almost daily basis I think, I’m glad I don’t have that.”

Fascinating stuff. I wonder what it’s like for her spouse and child? (Gift article.)

Blood supplies are bonkers low nationwide, which I don't know about you, but I consider a national security issue. It puts us in a weakened global position, a vulnerable one. If you're able to donate? Do: https://www.redcrossblood.... 🩸 #WhatCanIDoCrew

thread 2 Threaded Spouts
This thread resonated with me. My honest answer (as a fellow introvert) is that yes, I’m losing interest. I try to spend time in Explore and various tabs & feel out of sync a lot of the time. Before anyone scolds, I already know it’s a “me” problem, so save the lecture. Even posting about music…
Happy4uu&u @Happy4uuu
So, is it OK to lose intetest in #Spoutible ? And, if so, is anyone overwhelminging feeling this way? How do you combat it? How do you try to remain engaged?

As someone who is a relatively quiet introvert, this platform opened up my chatter channel that I was unaware I even had.

My daughter recently gave up running outside by herself after a scary incident where someone was following her.
Read aBannedBook @RetiredLibrarian
Sometimes I want to take a walk at night alone and see the moon rise over the lake and feel the peace.

But I can't. Women have been murdered in my town while out at night or early morning. And it's not just my town.

It's not safe for women and I'm sick that we have no real freedom.

It’s a good, sunny day here.

✅ Two doctor’s appointments down.
✅ Car gassed up & washed.
✅ Laundry
✅ Pot of chicken chili & homemade tortilla chips made.

Next up, heading to a bridal gown fitting with my daughter and then out for early dinner with her and her maid of honor.❤️

A top cyber security expert and member of several corporate Boards warned his readers that Musk is advocating for Black slavery on Twitter/X.

Say what?

Yes. Musk is specifically advocating for Black Americans to be returned to slavery. Musk is classified as a national security threat to the USA.

I love it when I’m scrounging around in the freezer & find some really good dinner leftovers from not too long ago that I had forgotten about. Today’s lunch menu: Roasted salmon & broccolini, plus quickly-made spicy avocado crema. I ate it so fast I didn’t get a pic. #SpoutibleCooks #Leftovers
