March 27, 2023 Ridley's Believe It or Not


The suspense of whether the Manhattan Grand Jury would indict Trump was not resolved today as the Grand Jury retired without handing down an indictment. Another school shooting this time in Nashville in the Covenant School when a transgender male, Audrey Hale, who once attended the elementary school, shot the lock off a side entrance and went up the stairs to shoot and kill 3 staff, including the head of the school, and three students all aged 9 before being shot and killed by police who were on scene in less than 15 minutes. L.A. Mayor Bass’ credentials to replace a struggling and unpopular VP Kamala  Harris were enhanced due to her stepping in as mediator to the labor dispute between LAUSD and the  Service Employees International Union Local 99 settling the strike with a 30% increase in salaries and a $22.50 minimum wage for its members.(If Biden does run and win, his insurance policy of not being replaced would be to have Harris as his VP who is even on Biden’s worst cognitive awareness day is more capable); In March Madness the PAC 12’s last hopes were dashed in the Sweet 16 games as UCLA, Colorado, and Utah were eliminated.  In Texas Transgender activist Loren Perkins compared Texas Lawmakers considered a bill to ban funding of Texas public libraries and other venues that receive public funding from host drag queen shows as Nazis who first targeted homosexuals and transgenders.

mous Quotes on Events and Issues
           Donna Mitra: Hard on Us: Memoir of a Sexless Marriage:I am man. This is my penis’ is a reductive approach taken by doctors.
In over a decade of living alongside psychological erectile dysfunction, I felt let down by specialists and a medical culture that appears too focused on men.
The be all and end all of great sex does not end with penetration – at least not from a woman’s perspective.
Sex is not just about taking a pill, scoring a hard-on and getting your dick in someone – it is everything that comes before and after that too. It is not enough to treat the penis like a standalone instrument.
It is certainly no good handing out pills like Viagra or Cialis without an understanding of the man’s emotional experience and desire for sex. The man behind the penis is a sentient being. There is his physiology but also his feelings, the sentient woman standing beside him, and the couple aspiring to an intimate life – all in the context of real life around them. The answers to a sustainable sex life with erectile dysfunction are not in a pill but in our interconnected nature as humans. It is what happens when two souls – and all their hopes and fears – collide.”
