Fenced in and Cornered.

He's finally getting his wall. Over the weekend they put up fencing to keep protesters farther away from our house, The White House.

Stay Focused
Author: BobR    Date: 06/03/2020 12:47:51

The last several days have been gut-wrenching. Seeing an innocent family man murdered by Minneapolis police (and by one he knew personally, apparently), followed by days of protests, riots, and more police brutality is horrific. There is so much that I could write about, the most egregious being tRump's attack on peaceful protesters so he could have a photo op with a bible he doesn't read in front of a church he doesn't attend after removing the actual clergy who were there providing aid and comfort to the peaceful protesters.

What makes that even worse is that apparently it was AJ Barr who ordered the "hit" on the protesters. This would be akin to the DA in your city ordering the police and National Guard to do... well... anything. How is this legal?

This...is America. 80 years ago now, Edward R. Murrow used to open his broadcasts from wartime London with similar words. I can easily imagine a BBC reporter returning the favor as London, and the rest of the world look on in increasing dismay.

Let Them Eat Dirt
Author: BobR    Date: 05/27/2020 13:26:36

The coronavirus pandemic has hit the U.S. incredibly hard. As of this writing, there are 1.7M cases, and over 100K deaths. The effects are not just devastating to the health of those who catch it - it has also pushed our health care "system" to the limits (including those front-line workers dealing with the sick). Businesses of all types are going under as workers (and customers) are forced to stay home.

One of the most disturbing aspects of this is the effect on farmers. They too are being affected by a lack of customers (restaurants) and lack of workers. The former is hard to understand - people still need to eat, but will be doing so at home. Why would the demand for food decrease?
