We're doomed!

Many Americans think chocolate milk comes from brown cows: study

Seven per cent of American adults think chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a survey conducted by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy.
Over 1,000 respondents aged 18 and over were interviewed for the survey, which sought to examine people’s views on the role dairy products play in their diet and daily lives.
Extrapolated to the U.S. population, the findings suggest that over 22 million Americans link the milky brown beverage’s source to chocolate-coloured bovines.

The study also found that nearly half of Americans have no idea where chocolate milk comes from.

Chocolate milk is in fact white cow’s milk mixed with flavouring and sweeteners, the website of the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy reveals.

In less chuckle-inducing findings, the website also says chocolate milk is not linked to weight gain or hyperactivity in children, contrary to common belief.

The survey was conducted as part of the “Undeniably Dairy” project, “which showcases the joy of dairy in everyday life.”

Respondents were not asked where they thought strawberry milk comes from.

Yeah, this is why democracy is failing..... because we now have the ability to approach democracy.

In the olden days, the people voted but the candidates were almost always people of privileged and higher social positions and so were generally well educated and knew how to behave long before holding high elected office. Put another way, generally any candidate for high office was acceptable, and the rest of us only had a couple of relatively well groomed people to choose from. Today with Facenovel, Twitting and so forth, things are being done on a much faster and much more 'grass roots' level. Politicians are responding to the masses (or is it 'them asses'?) immediately and this is starting to have an impact on our entire society. The only branch that is so far immune seems to be the Judicial branch, and they just do not have the size, reach or authority to correct all the errors being generated by the other two branches..... and the masses.

Put another way, the 'brown cow / chocolate milk' folk choose all the current leaders and now, for the first time ever, are speaking to those people directly.... and those people are reacting to the noise because they have to.

Fun to watch, not so much to live in the middle of it.

P.S. We have always been doomed, only the method and the executioner has been negotiable. I think we have now chosen the executioner, and 'he' is 'us'. At least that is what Kirby thinks.

I think the mid level judiciary is tainted by the political class elected by the brown cow crowd.

Yes, absolutely. I meant mid- level and higher judiciary. So far, the lucky contestants for, say, the position of Federal Judge and higher seem to be somewhat protected because again, they have extensive educations and almost universally, a lot of time interacting within a complex system of rules as well as rules of behavior. So by the time they stand for nomination, virtually all of the (searches and searches for fitting, P.C. and non- offensive word..... but cannot find it) have been weeded out.

The same used to be true for almost all House members but no longer applies. The Senate, usually a bastion of decency and at least some honest thought and study, is also sliding. The Executive branch.... well, I will just stop typing here.

The highest of the judiciary branch members, the US Supreme Court, is still a highly intelligent, extremely learned group of people, and they have great sway in our society. Even the ones occupying a position a citizen may not like is almost always a truly able individual; I dare any thinking person to read three opinions of the any one of them, even those on 'the other side', and not come to the conclusion it was written by a thoughtful, intelligent person. I recorded and watched some of Mr. Gorsuch's confirmation hearings and again, a highly intelligent, well spoken and able individual, regardless of his (absolutely good and correct, so far  :rotflmao: :rotflmao:) leanings. I personally do not agree with most of Justice Ginsburg's rulings, opinions or it seems, thoughts but I have tremendous RESPECT for her a a human and as a jurist of the highest caliber (she would probably cringe at that statement). And again, these people are NOT elected nor are they subject to the masses' opinions, which is why they still function at a high level I think.

In the late 18th century, the King et al. was not really working for the French so they chucked him. The new system was a group of would- be revolutionaries, holding their meetings in a public gallery, which basically ran things with their screaming, applauding and overall 'studio audience' bad behavior and mindlessness. As bad as the King was, this new 'system' was worse 'cause the CMP (Chocolate Milk People..... let's start a new acronym!) were now in charge and they simply were not equal to the task. That period had a LOT of beheading, which the CMP really, really liked, and was known as The Terror. Starting in 2010, the US entered a new phase when the angry mobs, or CMPs, elected a mid- term group with the simple and foolish mandate to oppose the current administration no matter what. And we 'broke' the gov't. And we continue to maintain it in that broken condition but what is worse is that we are replacing it with a public gallery, screaming, shouting, booing and applauding to steer our whole society. Sort of like an un- moderated (or badly moderated) forum being in charge of something.

I am not usually a pessimist but this ain't a' goin' to good places IMO.

Oh well, at least all the new videos that are being recorded of bad behavior will keep us entertained, if that is any consolation...

Now that right there is funny. And I really like those kewel clothes that Jack Webb dressed his actors in for the series.

And I doubt even Joe Friday, working on the night shift, in robbery division (yeah, I remember it), could do much now even if 1) he were alive and 2) he had a FaceTwit account. He would simply be a  point of hatred, for a few hours, for the CMP before they, like any other cat, saw something else move and chased that instead of the last thing they were doing.... whatever was.

Sorry, I think we have real social issues that could be dealt with, maybe effectively, with logical, calm and measured application of the abilities we have gained over 400,000 years. Maybe even a statesman or two. But instead we throw ever- increasing levels of 'mob mentality' at them, all the while increasing the ability of the mob to form bigger and louder mobs.

So now I say: CMP's, go forth and multiply. Pollute your own sandbox! Stop all progress, no matter how idiotic! That'll show 'em!

At least now I have a name for the viewers of the 'Crazy Channel' that I can say out-loud, right in front of them. Thank you ZGGTR forum for that, I will use it often! I think I will say 'CMP' but they will hear 'DCM' (Director of Civilian Marksmanship), and nod to whatever I say, and that will be REALLY funny.

The average 'Mercan don't know nuthin' 'bout nuthin'.  And doesn't want to.

When I as in the hospital overnight a few years ago for minor surgery, I told the food people that I was a vegetarian and they recommended (and served me) Jell-O.  WTF???  You would think medical/dietician type people would know what they are serving, but no.....

https://www.livescience.com/42088-what-is-jello-jell-o.html

Very few people know what the hell they are actually eating. And with all the processing going on with our food supply, it is increasingly had to tell.

I have enjoyed the creativity and humor in these two videos:(<--punctuation pun intended) (a) (b), but now I wonder about the effect they have on the CMP.

OH, and it will not be long before someone says CMP is racist. Not because CMP is racist, nor was intended to be racist, but because it can be construed that way. So use it with great caution outside of here less you be mistakenly labeled.

Now that right there is funny. Not that they served you the wrong food or that you had any difficulty in the hospital but that they gave a vegetarian Jell-O. A long time ago, I read a line that said something to the effect that hospitals have a universal, institutional focus on Jell-O. Probably because they never, ever..... well, at least rarely, have to remove Jell-o from a patient's, er, wherever, and Jell-O cannot be used as a weapon, or at least an effective one.

Good point Marty, I never thought of that but yeah, surely someone will take offense to the CMP reference..... in a way not expected to deliver offense. :-)  Sort of like a 'shotgun' offensive remark- it catches at least several groups so they can huddle together on the street while carrying their <various> signs.

Aging has a terrible / wonderful consequence, at least in my own experience and the observation of all the old, cranky people around me: I care less and less everyday about such nonsense as P.C.
