Thoughts On A Sunday

Summer weather has arrived, with hazy, hot, and humid being the adjectives of the day...or next few days. Not that it bothers us here as we have actually been looking forwards to some actual summer weather. With the Fourth of July just under two weeks away, it’s about time that the weather is matching the calendar.

I spent yesterday morning with my ex, Deb, and some customers/friends of the business we used to own. (We sold it when Deb decided to go back to school a few years ago.) It was nice seeing some of the friends we’d made and catching up. We met at the public park along the shore in Alton Bay. The weather was actually pretty good, with a nice breeze and shade from one of the park’s maples keeping us cool. It was nice to get together while overlooking the calm waters of the bay and the folks enjoying their time on their boats.


I have to say I have had just about enough of the whole BLM trope, especially since they don’t really care about black lives, at least not that I can see. BLM has focused all of its attention on the very few incidents where unarmed (or even armed) black people have been killed by police. (There were nine such incidences of that last year. Nine.) But what about the thousand+ black lives ended every year, lives ended by other blacks? What do we hear?

Nothing. Not. A. Word.

Why the silence? This is something they should be yelling from the rooftops. But we hear nothing.

Could it be because it doesn’t fit the “Cops Are Racist” narrative, and therefore is not politically useful?

Update: As of noon today, 60 people were shot, 9 of them fatally, in Chicago this weekend. The youngest victim killed was 3-years old. Most of the victims shot and those killed were in their teens to mid-20’s. All of them were black.

What do we hear from BLM about this? Nothing.


Paraphrasing George Santayana, “Those who ignore history are going to make themselves look like fools.” Case in point, the Congressional Democrats taking a knee for eight minutes of silence for George Floyd.

In and of itself, that’s not a problem. It is perfectly fine for them to do that if they so choose.

What’s ironic is that they decided to wear kente cloths while doing so. It’s not the fact that they wore them that’s ironic, but that the ones they wore were those of the Asante tribe, a tribe that sold thousands of their fellow Africans into slavery.

One has to wonder whether those descendants of the Party of Slavery, the Democrat Party, the ones wearing the “colors” of slavers, either didn’t know or didn’t care about the irony of what they were doing.

That little extra touch they used has certainly muffled the message they thought they were sending.


Want a preview of what we can expect if the Marxists/Antifa/Anarchists and their ilk take over? Here’s what an undercover journalist saw in his recent 5-day stay in CHAZ, CHOP, or whatever they’re calling it these days.

Not pretty.

If you need a little more info on what’s planned, then check out this interview with one of CHAZ/CHOP/Whatever leaders for what they really want: Hell on Earth. What’s worse is that they’ll see it as heaven...for them. Everyone else is screwed.


President Trump’s rally didn’t turn out the way organizers had hoped. Not that there wasn’t enthusiasm and a long list of people wanting to attend. But a concerted effort via Tik-Tok and K-Pop had teens reserving hundreds of tickets for the rally. Those reserving the tickets had no plan to attend, but they ate up reservations for those wishing to attend.

There was also a successful effort by protesters blocking access to metal detectors that meant a lot attending the outdoor venue couldn’t enter. So much for the free expression of political thought...unless you are of the correct political ideology. Then anything goes.

Looks like the political dirty tricks have started and we have to give the first point to the Left.

I hope they don’t expect to get away with it again.


And now for something completely different.

Cool, eh?


And that’s the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where hazy, hot, and humid is the term for the coming week, the A/C is cranked, and the beaches are busy.
