So some kids in Evanston, Illinois were at the beach….and one of them had a beach towel in the form of a Confederate Flag.
us common peons can stand in line for a short time to vote in person”
Go read the folks on the sidebar. Too busy to post.
But we all have to hide in our homes or behind a mask because Covid.
But the Media focus is, of course, not telling the whole story.
That march across the Pettus Bridge? He knew that there was gonna be a good chance that the police would kick his ass….I mean, a serious tune-up. Hickory Shampoo. In fact, he could have been killed, and back then, the cops would have gotten away with it.
He and the folks who marched with him had some serious guts….unlike today’s “protesters” who have no real fear of the police(or of being killed or seriously injured by them) or, for the most part, the rest of the citizens in the communities that they are terrorizing.
‘Twas only later, when he got to congress, that his commitment wavered towards expediency and away from righteousness.
But he is an example of guts, or at least was.
“The minions of the State hide their numbers by walking in single file….”
So I went for a walk on the beach…(Yes, ladies, I really DO like Long Walks on the Beach).
It was a beautiful day, and while this is not my favorite portion of the beach on Lake Michigan, it is the only one where there IS a beach at this time (Lake Michigan is a near record high levels, so lots of beaches are only feet wide, rather than tens of yards)….And so I walked along the beach for about 4 miles, then turned back. MC was with me, and, as I said, the day was about as nice as one could ask for…low 80’s, just enough breeze to be comfortable, sunny and bright.
We did our walk out, turned and walked back. Now, parking at the Federal Park for this beach is about a half mile from the actual beach, we were walking back to the car and we were passing a young mother with three kids…one about 6 years old, one about 5 and one about 3 years.
As we passed, the middle child reminded her “6 Feet social distance, Mommy”.
I must say I was taken aback that the kids, who have not been in school for the past 120 or so days, have been conditioned so strongly already, with -out the aid of school to help program their thinking.
The Mom was embarrassed, and looked at us (from a safe distance, of course) and said “I just hope that when this is over they can forget all this”…
Think about it, these kids have been programmed to already keep their distance, likely only through TV and computer games….And it is strong enough to get them to “remind” adults.
While I was willing to give allowances for shitty service at the beginning of this debacle, it has been in excess of 90 days.
Plenty of time to adapt and overcome any obstacles that “Da Covid” might have put in the way of you firm being able to provide a decent level of service.
I am now simply assuming that they simply don’t wish to provide proper service, be it telephone support or in person.
Were one to only get one’s data from the media, one might think that the Coronavirus is running rampant through the population…which it isn’t. One might think that deaths were rising exponentially…which they aren’t.
The reporters continuously tell us that the hospital intensive care rooms are at risk of being overwhelmed….which, according to the media, is a risk that has been present since March….They tell us that those portions of the hospitals are at 85% capacity…which is true….The Intensive Care portions of hospitals are nearly ALWAYS at a similar percentage….If not, the hospitals lose money…(Yes, some elective surgeries that might have put patients there to recover are being deferred, but still, this is misleading reporting).
It appears to me that there is a concerted attempt to, if not lie to the public, at least mislead us as to how severe this “crisis” is.
Fuck it, I’m studying for my Instrument checkride, and, if it doesn’t rain, I’m gonna go clear my mind by
turning money into smoke and noise doing some precision paper punching.
I hope it goes viral.

Well done, Irish!
