No, I do not have any intention to leave the site/forum and I was / was not
surprised I was banned by Astrowill for 2 mos.
I probably would have been better off just simply threatening the posters with death instead of just triggering the wusses.
But we move on.
Being away from "The Forum" and laid up with COPD for about 5 weeks allowed me to do an enormous amount of research into the news of the last 2 years and during the 2 months of my "Banishment".
It is amazing what people MISS and what they PAY ATTENTION TO.
You need only look at the Olympics, race relations and... brace yourself... Trump
I / we do not use a cell phone, do not do FB, instashit, flip tock, tweeter, fumble, or spoticrap ( nor it's peer blog junk ).
In fact, our password list is 5 items long. Yeah, we use G00gul, but no MS products. Love Libre.
I watch more msnbc, cnn and network news recorded than I watch Fox or Fox Bus. Jeannie hates this.
Online we do this site, Fox, Fox bus and hit the other MSM thru the Fox comments ( they are the only MSM that publishes all comments ).
I cannot believe that most Americans are under the impression that "Thousands" ( 1,000s )
of armed and unarmed Black people die each year at the hand of Police Officers.
It, therefore is ( would be ) very easy to hate, vilify, protest, riot and loot feeling you and your kind are due some attention and / or reparations, and hence, easy to justify not shooting, arresting, prosecuting or incarcerating Black people because THOUSANDS
are being indiscriminately shot and killed by COPS.
Then forgotten about...
That is just NOT
the case and I do not think it was said enough, if at all, that the RIOTS & the SITUATION our PARTIES
are involved in at this moment ( including Jan 6th ) rose from UNARMED GEORGE FLOYD'S DEATH
. And of course, the "peaceful civil discourse" that followed.
A cursory look in G00gul, wiki, Wash. Post, NYT, NPR and numerous Gov't. and Biden files will show that from 2010 to 2021, there were 36 to 50
Unarmed black people killed by cops.
That is, in my Opinion, the OTHER big Lie... "Thousands of unarmed black men are dying at the hands of our nation's cops"
At Christmas, I pulled my 2 nephews aside to help me with The Van doors and do some clean up around the shop / garages. I also asked them 2 questions as we were working:
- how was the crowd at your voting precinct ? long lines, hassles, whatever... ?
- how many UNARMED black people were killed by cops over the last few years ?
These 2 nephews are heavily involved with work, cars and smartphones as most young adults are.
They are 26 & 30 years old, Bi-racial, but dark as nite, one is slow, one is NOT slow, but a higher performing, affirmative action, passed cuz h's black teaching RN. I do not go to his hospital.
Just as there are a few airlines I will NOT
fly. Just happen to know how their "staff" got hired, quotas n' all.
Both of the nephews know "for a fact" that thousands of black guys, "die by the po po every year, we just don't hear about 'em".
They said that, without wincing or blinking. They saw it on their cells...
So, noone has to tell me about DIS and MIS information.
If you get your health info from your phone - you deserve it & all that comes from it.
And they said, "our votes ain't gonna' make no difference anyhow - not this year".
5 years ago, they both said they voted for Donald Trump.
The wife could not understand how I could separate Presidents & "The Presidency".
Next post: How the 2 can be defined differently and expectations can differ from the "personal" man or woman and their ideals and how they carry themselves.
You can hate the man, but respect or even like his or her ideas and methods.
