So, dear my friends what is trending right now?

Answer: “Alternative facts!”

So, what does “alternative facts” means?

“In physical sciences, an alternate fact is a true statement that, while appearing to contradict another fact, actually illuminates the subject to greater depth.

For example, is light a particle or a wave?

In political debate, an alternative fact is a statement that, although demonstrably false, is treated as a tribal talisman and acted on as though it were true…”

But what if you have to debate the journalist lying through his teeth and you have no power over the media…what is “alternative facts” then?

OR

What to do when “alternative facts” becomes the truth from your TV because the Universe or “money power” is playing with you and your brain.

Do you get it people? What is “the truth” today and what is the “alternative facts”? And which one is which?

Ask George Soros …

No, I would rather talk to Denzel Washington  who said:

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” the 61-year-old actor recently expressed while promoting his new film Fences.

“What is the long-term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore. So what responsibility do you all have?,” Denzel asked the reporter.

“To tell the truth. Not just to be first. But to tell the truth. We live in a society now where its just be first, who cares just get it out, we don’t care who it hurts, we don’t care who we destroy, we don’t care if it’s true. Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice, you will get good at, including B.S.”

So, what to do when B.S. is your truth…Can you explain the meaning of “alternative facts” then?

CAN YOU?

Yes, we can! – says Obama as he plays golf.

O, please I am screaming at Universe now. I am sick and tired of this B.S.

And I wish that people wake up and hug their neighbors, bake a cake, share and love this life and refuse to be part of B.S.

And see the truth…then to answer the question: What is the “alternative facts” would be a piece of cake!

5 star cookies -cosily tucked cabbage rolls
5 star cookies -cosily tucked cabbage rolls

When your dish is full of cosily placed cabbage rolls,cover with the remaining cabbage leaves, pour water over all so that the cabbage rolls sinks.

At the beginning cook on a high temperature until water boils.

Then continue cooking at medium temperature for 3 hours, adding more hot water as necessary. (always have a lots of water above your cabbage rolls …just imagine underwater swimming

and your head is like cabbage roll)

After 3 hours add can of crushed tomatoes (28 oz) and 1 TBSP of salt. (you can add less or more salt, taste to your liking).

Continue cooking for another 15 min…and then it is ready for you and your family.

It can be lunch or dinner for a few days.

Tips:

1. Before you make the rolls i suggest you soak the sour cabbage in water because it might be too salty and sour.
