TOO SWEET: These Seventh Graders Saved Their Money for Amazing Act of Chivalry on Valentine’s Day

Published

on

They say that chivalry is dead, but I say we’ve got hope in the next generation.

In a world where simple acts of gentlemanliness are often denounced as “patriarchal” and gender is supposedly a social construct, it is great to see men and boys unswayed by silly modern notions and going out of their way to be chivalrous.

A boy named Tristian Valentine teamed up with two of his friends to buy 300 pink carnations to pass out to all the girls and female staff at their school on Valentine’s Day so that none of them would be without a gift.

After getting the go-ahead, Valentine rallied the troops, which included 6th grader Lincoln Holmes and 7th grader Kyan Rice. Together, the three of them pooled their cash and earned enough to buy several hundred pink carnations, ensuring no one would be left out.

“We wanted every girl to feel important and special on Valentine’s Day,” their ringleader, Valentine, told KMBC. “We worked hard to make sure it was going to be a surprise to everybody. I only told a few friends, and the girls seemed surprised and happy.”

“I got chills seeing it happen,” the principal added. “The ladies were so excited. It gives them something to look up to and feel good about themselves. It’s also what makes Summit Trail special.”

“I donated $100 of my own money,” 7th grader Rice said. “I had the money from soccer refereeing. Tristan and his mom got the flowers Wednesday and brought them to school today. Lincoln and I got here early, and we started handing them out.”

Too sweet!

Putin Threatens to Station Russian Military 90 Miles from United States

The chess game continues.

Cold War 2?  The first shadows of World War 3?  Whatever it is, this latest conflict between Russia and The United States could be getting a little close to home for that latter population.

The issue at hand is Ukraine.  Russia looks to be in the last calm moments before an imminent invasion, and the rest of the world is warning against it.  The United States, as per the usual, is the loudest voice in the crowd, forcefully and repeatedly telling Vladimir Putin that if he lays a finger on Ukraine, there will be Hell to pay.

But, not to be outdone of course, Vladimir Putin has now threatened to move Russian troops into position to act on US soil.

 Following recent threats of a potential military deployment to Cuba earlier this month, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin discussed the “strategic partnership” and further coordination of “actions in the international arena” with Cuban leader Miguel Díaz-Canel in a call disclosed Monday by the Kremlin.

In a tweet, Díaz-Canel said the two leaders held a “cordial and fruitful telephone conversation” about “the current international situation” and the development of “future links in different spheres.”

News of the conversation comes amid rising fears of a Russian military action in Ukraine. NATO said Monday it was putting forces on standby and sending additional ships and fighter jets to Eastern Europe while President Joe Biden was reportedly considering sending troops to the region.

Cuba and Venezuela were dragged into the drama surrounding the conflict earlier this month after Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, told a Russian television station that he could “neither confirm nor exclude” potential military deployments to the two Latin American nations.

The White House appeared resolute in their stance against the move.

“I’m not going to respond to bluster in the public commentary,” Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, told reporters at the time. “If Russia were to move in that direction, we would deal with it decisively.”

Putin has also threatened, through a well-known media mouthpiece, that those opposing his taking of Ukraine could find themselves turned to “radioactive dust”.

Canuck Folk Rocker Wants Spotify to Take Action Against Joe Rogan’s 1A Rights

“It’s Joe Rogan or me!”

Published

on

Americans sure do love to argue.  They always have. It started when we were back-talking the British about tea in Boston Harbor, and we installed a heavy amount of contention in our own Congress by design.

But the sort of pedantic and stunting arguments that have dominated the political landscape of late have been wildly underwhelming.

Take, for instance, the non-controversy over Joe Rogan’s COVID19 discussions.  The left has labeled his two-way talks “misinformation” on more than one occasion, often out of context.  Spotify has largely stood by Rogan and his 1st Amendment rights, however.

But now, one of Canada’s folk rock legends has an ultimatum for the platform:  It’s Joe Rogan or me.

Neil Young posted a since-deleted letter to his management team and record label demanding that they remove his music from Spotify. “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” he wrote. “Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”

“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” he continued. “They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.” Young is referencing the steady stream of misinformation about vaccines that Joe Rogan has peddled on The Joe Rogan Experience. Last month, 270 doctors, physicians, and science educators signed an open letter asking Spotify to stop spreading Rogan’s baseless claims.

And then, in an insulting bit of “here is what you should do” speculation:

“With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE, which is hosted exclusively on Spotify, is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence,” the letter reads. “Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy.”

As of this writing, no official word on the removal of Young’s music from the service has been given.
