Coke, Candy and ... Plan B?

Um, so is our goal in 2017 to get rid of human interaction altogether?

What’s happening?

Based on the reasoning behind the new vending machines placed on some college campuses, that’s what it sounds like. Students at schools including Stanford and UC Davis can now anonymously buy “morning-after” contraception in vending machines, a safe space that doesn’t involve talking to another human being.

The “Wellness to Go” vending machine holds pain reliever, condoms and Plan B contraception.

Glenn’s take:

Shockingly enough, Glenn couldn’t help getting a little sarcastic about this story. He wondered if we’re simply trying to eliminate anything that could possibly make us uncomfortable.

“Wouldn’t it be great if you could live in a judgment-free space your whole life?” he quipped. “No matter what you did, no one would ever … say, ‘That was stupid, wasn’t it?'”

GLENN: Do you remember when you got a Coke and a pack of M&M's from a vending machine? Man, thank goodness we got rid of those evil sugary snacks in schools and college campuses during the Obama years. Boy, oh, boy, have you seen the numbers on obesity? It's way down. Or, exactly the same, or a little higher.

Michelle Obama was worried about American kids being just too fat. And so she helped push through a law to replace the Twix that everybody wanted with a carrot stick, that nobody wanted.

Now some state colleges are moving on from obesity to attacking a new problem, like the embarrassment and shame, specifically the embarrassment college women may feel when they have to go to a pharmacy and ask for an expensive morning-after pill, because they had unprotected sex with someone the night before. And they have to actually go up and talk to a human being and say, "Can I have that pill?" They have to face the judgmental glare of a pharmacist or another customer in line.

Unthinkable. I mean, are there no safe spaces for the consequences of promiscuous sex? Is there nothing? I need an empathy tent.

It's an outrage, right? What is a caring university to do? Well, they're going to do to -- they're going to put a discreet, convenient, safe space where co-eds can skip past all that awkward judgey human interaction thing and get the pregnancy-blocking drugs they so desperately need.

How about a vending machine? Yes, that's exactly what they're going to do. And they've called it Wellness To Go. It sells condoms, morning-after pills, and, of course, Advil for the hangovers. Well, that sounds like wellness to go, doesn't it?

Wellness To Go vending machines, they are real. Stanford is the latest of a handful of colleges leading the charge on this effort. A female student at UC Davis said, a lot of students like the judgment-free space.

I bet you do. Wouldn't it be great if you could live in a judgment-free space your whole life? No matter what you did, no one would ever, ever, ever question you or look down on you or say, "Well, that was stupidity, wasn't it?" Man.

She goes on, quote, you don't have to feel the pressure of interacting with people. Oh, my gosh. I never thought of that.

You know what also would stop that? If we just got rid of all of the people, that I'd never have to talk to people or interact with them ever again.

We are trying to accomplish something truly remarkable in human history. I think the Nazis did it. Stalin also did it a little bit. Mao just a pinch of this as well.

We're attempting to eliminate anything that we don't like, anything that makes us feel guilty, uncomfortable, in kind of feeling that we don't like, any consequence, any responsibility for our own actions. I mean, Mao never took the responsibility of killing, what was it? What was it? 25 million in five years on his farming experiment, he was like, eh, he was in his safe zone. Trying to make life one never-ending pleasure crews is not what life is really about. Not only is it impossible, it's dangerous. And it is literally killing our society.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
