Tulsa and the pandemic...

Well welcome to Tulsa...

Currently a pandemic city and growing new cases at an alarming rate.

Along come the Rethugicans, six of which in the advance crew are covid postive!
They have been around and social... Wow!

With some potential for upwards of 80K for the external convention
and the 19K internal to the hall this means a high infection rate after all
its not a big deal for the younger set.

  Except for that study the average admission age is decreasing and its currently
  in the 20-35 group that seems to be getting the Wuflu and its hospital admissions
  showing that.

In a few days all those infectees will be returning home, you forgot they are
attending from everywhere.  Airports, airplanes, and busses oh my.   All
those home states if they have in under control or at least tamped down will
get a fresh drink of the virus from active spreaders that devoutly believe the
mask is a muzzle on them and doesn't prevent anything.  So they will not.

So just think your bud or friend that went to the convention just might have
the virus that could spread to you, your mom or dad, maybe the kid.
Remember to thank him if they get that tube out.

Ponder that bug...  Its summer and the hot weather that was supposed to
tamp it down like the flu. In some states have had over two months of
hot and the rest are now hot for at least a month and the bug Covid-19
seems to like it and and infections are increasing more.    The hot south
both east and west are teeming with cases and grwoing fast.

Oh right, all that is fake news...  until it isn't.

For the rest that have their stuff together, keep the powder dry and hidden,
head down and running for cover.  The next wave of shit is about to arrive.

And yes likely wearing MAGA hats, Making Anarchists Grieve Again.

why its Lives Matter...

Things are strange…

Black Lives Matter.

I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person,
but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now,
whether I like it or not, makes me “Privileged”, a
racist & responsible for slavery.

The yabut, I have a mostly Irish and some Indian heritage.  I've seen
the old signs that were still on buildings in NYC in the '70s saying
Irish and Negros need not apply.  I guess some are more privileged
than others.  Or the term privilege has acquired new meanings.

Irish Lives matter...

I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today’s standards,
makes me a fascist because I plan and budget to support myself.
I'm also a New England Yankee, making me legendary for being

Woman's lives matter...

I went to High School and college, an education and have always
tried to hold a job.  But I now find out that I am not here
because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged” and not
because I knew technology and could apply it.

Education matters!

I am not straight, which according to straight folks, makes
me a queer and worthy of abuse.

Queer Lives Matter

I am almost 70, making me now a useless eater who does understand
Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat and computer design and operation.

Old Lives Matter...

I think and reason, and I doubt or research much of what the
“mainstream” media tells me, which makes me a skeptic.

Truth Matters!

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a de facto
member of the “vast NRA gun lobby”.  But I'm not.

Our Lives Matter...

I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making
me a xenophobe. No just a citizen of the great experiment called

Citizens Lives Matter

I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens,
now making me a militarist.

I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to
let it fly, so I stand & salute during our National Anthem –
so I must be a racist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, fair pay in accordance
to each individual’s merits.  Being big on the proceeds of my
efforts makes me a thieving capitalist.

Work Lives matter.

I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – I expect for
my taxes those services they pay for, which must make me a

Peoples Lives Matter!

If all this inane noise wasn’t enough to deal with, now there are those that
claim to not know which restroom to use?  That means your stupid.

Trans Lives Matter...

I have come to terms with the new me and I’m sure who I am.  I just
haven't a clue who making up all the terms for what I am not.

Why because every person matters, not any one race, ethnic,
or background.

Lives Matter!

Keep your powder hidden, keep it dry, and your head down.
