Gaslight the Truth

What if you had information that could save people? What if you took that information to the media, but they switched it around to make it sound like your information was dangerous instead of life-saving? You might ask, why would anyone want to keep away life-saving information from the public? That’s what I’d like to know, too, and it’s why I always research everything I’m told.

Can’t Think Straight

Have you ever experienced times when there is so much going on that you can’t even think straight? How about when you’re emotional about something?

I usually don’t post a blog on Tuesdays, nor do I like to write over 500 words (this is 568), but I heard something on the radio yesterday that had my thoughts whirling. I was on my way to a doctor’s appointment, when a filler-news-story reported on the latest research study.

 Pessimists Live Longer and Healthier Lives!
