USA presidents, whatever color an political inclinations, are not famous for caring about civilian casualties. “Holy Obama” started a massacre in Libia and foraged destruction in Siria, Bush before him crushed Iraq with no reasons at all (by USA admission). Vietnam was a meaningless carnage, back in time. Support to Israel “molten lead” treatment of Gaza led to another endless list of victims… Trump did all the possible worst in management of the epidemic, but at list did not start it.
In my experience age has NEVER been a real problem if you wanted to buy porn… Nor alcohol or tobacco.
From a foreign observer: is baseball THAT important?
When I was just a toddler (early ’50s) my mother smashed RAW liver in my semolini soup with a fork: there where no baby foods and Mellin homogenates at that times, and liver was a good cheap source of proteins and vitamin D. I have an “imprint” on that taste, and I still can eat raw liver and I like it – I also like the faces of puking bystanders..:-)
Also bank accountants. And DJs. And Catholic nuns. Even Presidents. If you have it you carry it, if you haven’t you don’t.
HOLY COW! But WHY “deter” thumb sucking? To increase the sales of plastic pacifiers? To assess authority and parental power? To grab a good chance of being the usual adult PITA?
Cartoon strips are ALWAYS political. From Egypt hyerogliphics to Peanuts, passing from Mafalda. Just name ONE strip that is “pure humour” without some connection with reality…
Yes, NOW I remember… Anyway, even the puppy mill thing sounds strange here in Italy. Until 2018 we had only 130 “registered” Scotties in ALL Italy – I mean dogs registered in the ENCI database with pedigrees and everything. Here the Scottie is quite an uncommon dog. There are lots of JackRussels and herds of Labradors, mainly because we had an advertising campaign of an apple producer that featured a JackRussell, and a campain for a brand of toilet paper that featured a puppy Lab…
Rescued? A pure-bred Scottie? Who dares to abandon such a treasure?
Rule #5 and #5bis. If it comes from the Web it is 90% BS. If it comes from the “social” networks we jump to 110%.
