Re-opening old wounds.
Author: TriSec    Date: 08/01/2020 10:38:20

It's been more than seven years. On April 15, 2013 a pair of Chechen terrorists detonated homemade bombs within yards of the Boston Marathon finish line.

Three people died - hundreds were injured.

The ensuing manhunt very nearly reached my neighborhood, but reached its conclusion in neighboring Watertown, about four miles from where I am sitting now.

It always seems to follow the same script. First, there's a tragic event. Then there are mass protests around the country trying to affect some sort of change to prevent it from happening again.

Over and over, people are saying "I support 'XYZ', but not the rioting and looting", which ends up becoming "why do they have to riot and/or loot?"

The Tipping Point
Author: TriSec    Date: 07/25/2020 10:33:45

"At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

"You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go".

"Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?"

OMG ya'll! I have discovered CRAFTIVISM! Is this new? Am I behind on a movement? Art, literature, and music have been inspired by revolution and protest for centuries.

I mean Liberty Leading the People is iconic.

I'm overwhelmed
Author: Raine    Date: 07/23/2020 13:12:13

Between the feds beating protestors and gassing moms in Portland, the occupant bragging about a cognitive test, and every other crappy thing that is going on, I am just overwhelmed.
