I’m going to be honest here. Hot? Definitely! Calming? I’m not so sure because this could really wind me and a lot of others up. 😆 That being said, cuppas like these could easily lead to some pleasurable stress relief and the calm that comes with the afterglow thereof. 😉

CNN will apparently always be CNN, whether it’s theire political (mis)reporting or their business section. Their recent article, “New threat to the economy: Americans are saving like it’s the 1980s” pretty much sums that fact up aptly and succinctly.
Americans are slashing their spending, hoarding cash and shrinking their credit card debt as they fear their jobs could disappear during the coronavirus pandemic. US credit card debt suddenly reversed course in March and fell by the largest percentage in more than 30 years. At the same time, savings rates climbed to levels unseen since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.
Yeah, CNN has a problem with people saving money instead of staying and/or going deeper into debt. After all, they describing increasing one’s savings as “hoarding cash.” They see not spending money that you don’t have and planning to rely more upon yourself during a crisis as threatening behaviors.
Then, I suppose this is to be expected. CNN was, is, and always will be CNN, a leftist mouthpiece and part of the propaganda corps of the Democrat party. As such, their is no part of their ideology that isn’t threatened by people behaving in a responsible manner, especially involving their money.
As I’ve said before, we’ve been in a long slide into immorality and societal collapse. As I’ve also said before, this is to some extent to be expected; it’s the natural result of certain thought patterns and the normal cycle of Man.
Still, when it becomes more societally fundamental and destroying basic behavioral rules which aid in that society being civil, it’s maddening. The simple fact that Millennials have turned “speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil” on its ear speaks directly to what is wrong with today’s generation, who are horrifically the future of society.
And yeah, it’d be so easy to partially excuse them and blame it on modern technology. That, however, doesn’t make any more sense than blaming firearms for people’s violence. Sure, constant internet usage and the nature of social media make their bad behavior easier, but they’re not the cause of it. The cause of it is something that is very wrong in the hearts, minds, and souls of the Millennials.
It’s always best – but especially so in these trying and stressful times – to start the day off right. Afterwards, I’d also suggest you two have some coffee, or tea if that’s your preference. 😉
Also, the axiom of “start as you mean to finish” comes quickly to my mind.
