Triggered: Dizzy News Round-Up

Triggered: Why Am I Dizzy Today?

Welcome to my Triggered post, part round-up, part venting portal; a place for me to post the news of the day and express my personal opinion (if I feel so inclined).

Dizzy sez: Just in time for Trump’s Asia tour, North Korea is promising (not, merely, threatening) to “test” a nuclear weapon somewhere over the Pacific.

Dizzy sez: I guess it’s a good thing I don’t fly. My father-in-law recently passed away and my partner, who is white, traveled home, twice, for his funeral and his memorial, with his black daughter. They had issues on both trips. They flew American both times. I’m glad that I didn’t have the displeasure of flying their, apparently, unfriendly skies.

Dizzy sez: What good is having coverage when the cost of service is still too high for many. I know far too many people who have but don’t use their insurance for fear of exorbitant costs not covered by even “affordable” insurance plans.

Dizzy sez: This has been a major barrier to me finding gainful employment. Many employers are requiring bachelor’s degrees for jobs that once only required a high school diploma. The job requirements are the same, even menial, in some respects, but now they require a four year degree (which I do not have) before they’ll even look at your resume.

Dizzy sez: Of all the things I ever had to consider boycotting, I never thought that I would have to put Gummies Bears on the list.

Dizzy sez: This could go a very long way to helping to feed the world, as land gets more scarce and as oceans, unfortunately, expand due to climate change.

My Ex stopped paying child-support, but bills still have to be paid. So, I took one of my poems & turned it into print for use in my new @cafepress shop: Thank you for checking it out!
