Tuesday Talk 7/14/15
I'm going to start a new thing on the blog where every Tuesday I chat about my opinions and thoughts on some of the things trending during the week. I hope to engage readers in some good conversation, and maybe even friendly discussion about their thoughts as well. So here goes for this week.
Dent County, Missouri: County Commission Votes to Lower Flags to 'Mourn' Marriage Equality Decision The commission members voted unanimously to lower the flags at county buildings to less than half-staff, The Salem News reported. The commissioner said he is opposed to same-sex marriage.
Are you kidding me? Really? What an embarrassment to the whole state of Missouri. I mean, get real. You need to "mourn" this? I think Marriage Equality is an amazing step forward for our country, in this day and age. Though many may not agree with it, why cause such friction? Anyone ever heard of tolerance??? Sheesh!
Little Ice Age: Scientists' Solar Model Predicts Cold Weather Cycle Arriving Around 2030
University of Northumbria solar researchers have said their model shows a pending "mini ice age" set for the 2030s that will mirror freezing conditions that occurred during the late 17th century.
Well, I was gonna say, I probably won't be alive when this happens, but, ha ha. I'm not that old, okay? So what.....I am from Minnesota. I can handle the cold. But this is a bit extreme. I guess we wait and see what happens, but like everyone else who is a Game Of Thrones fan, I have to say it: Winter Is Coming!
Suicide Squad: Trailer Released for Upcoming Movie Based on DC Villains
The trailer, shown at San Diego Comic-Con, shows the first footage of the movie, directed and written by David Ayer. "Suicide Squad" is expected to arrive in theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
I am a fan! A huge one! So this is exciting for me! Watch it on YouTube HERE. I love love love Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Jared Leto is one of my fave actors, but as The Joker, not so much. But I will hold judgement until I see the movie!
