    So It Begins

    Thanks. I may not have time to look at 15 pages of text for a while. But I'll try. You know, I agree. I hope so too. We can always try to do better. Strange. I've had the exact opposite experience. I've had people physically beat me up do various acts of physical violence when I was younger. As an older adult, I've only had stupid stuff, nothing violent. And a lot of stuff in between during the intervening years. I imagine it is worse for a black man in America. But I'd also imagine it is a lot better today than it was in the 60s and 70s. I actually know a lot of black people in the south. And not a single one of them personally knows anyone who has been lynched or had crosses burned on their lawns. We all hear stories. But none of them has personally experienced it.

    Most testing stations in Colorado, need a doctors order to get one. So most people do not get tested until they are sick and symptomatic. I have a buddy who was showing flu like symptoms, but the doctor didn’t think they warranted a Covid test, so he never got one. Conversely, everyone who dies of flu like symptoms, gets a postmortem test. That’s my best guess.

    So It Begins

    I prophesy in the name of the Lord God of Israel, unless the United States redress the wrongs committed upon the Saints in the state of Missouri and punish the crimes committed by her officers that in a few years the government will be utterly overthrown and wasted, and there will not be so much as a potsherd left, for their wickedness in permitting the murder of men, women and children, and the wholesale plunder and extermination of thousands of her citizens to go unpunished, thereby perpetrating a foul and corroding blot upon the fair fame of this great republic, the very thought of which would have caused the high-minded and patriotic framers of the Constitution of the United States to hide their faces with shame.

    I was saying earlier that the riots are really about removing the symbols of the old empire and replacing them with new ones. I was waiting for what the new symbols would be because that would reveal the true agenda. The first suggestion is upon us already. They've torn down the statue of Francis Scott Key. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=XnRmmYi7iZU&feature=emb_logo Ever since Kapernick knelt (and really, quite a bit before him) there has been a noticeable movement to end the playing of the Star Spangled Banner as our national anthem because there is one use of the word "slave" in one of the less sung verses. Now, the first suggestion by Yahoo Music is to replace it with Imagine. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/why-it-might-be-time-to-replace-the-star-spangled-banner-with-a-new-national-anthem-023741108.html So, we replace a statement of courage under fire and triumph over impossible odds... with a statement of unity under atheism and communism and a complete lack of motivation to do anything useful. I'll admit that the tune is beautiful in its simplicity and mesmerizing tones. But the lyrics are absolutely against everything I hold dear. God, Family, Country. Evil wrapped up in a package of peace, unity, and love. I wanna know why there aren't any rainbows, unicorns, and fluffy bunnies. Oh, wait... Now, THAT really is pure evil.

    Schadenfreude is beneath you, JAG. (I know this because I can see you up there.)
