  1. You have to admit that this is a valid point. There are indeed people who were hyper-vigilant about promoting social distancing and mask-wearing that are now enthusiastic supporters of peaceful protests with thousands of people who are gathering with zero social distancing and inconsistent mask wearing. People who criticized Trump for not wearing a mask at a factory, but applaud the non-mask wearing police officer who clasped hands with protesters and led them on a parade. Honestly, I’m one of those people. One week ago, I cared a whole lot more about wanting everyone to vigilantly practice social distancing. Why is that? Is it because the movement symbolized by the protests (not the rioting or looting) is simply that important? Perhaps that’s what it is. I’ll have to reflect on it.
  2. It’s been posted elsewhere, but it’s worth posting Trump’s response via Twitter here as well: Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General. I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was “Chaos”, which I didn’t like, & changed to “Mad Dog”... ...His primary strength was not military, but rather personal public relations. I gave him a new life, things to do, and battles to win, but he seldom “brought home the bacon”. I didn’t like his “leadership” style or much else about him, and many others agree. Glad he is gone!

  4. Who would have guessed that a town hall address from former President Obama would be completely upstaged within moments, but the jaw-dropping statement from Mad Dog Mattis did just that. Wow.
  5. The entire written statement from General Mattis should be required reading:
  6. Let’s take a pause from arguing over whether the media treats white conservatives fairly (I’ll concede that they often do not) and focus on the issue of systemic racism and how we might be able to work together to heal the racial divide in this country. I am honestly interested in hearing your reaction/perspective on the video I posted earlier in this thread. I’ll link it again for your convenience. https://youtu.be/So_PC3rHrXA
  7. Maybe I’m missing something here but this seems to be much ado about nothing. I can totally imagine Cuomo or Newsome joking about not inviting Trump to something in their state.
  8. I’ve heard the Acoustasonics sound and play incredibly well. But they look ugly as hell to me. I much prefer the Tom Anderson Crowdster Plus (own two of them). Absolutely incredible tone.
  9. Seriously, we’d rather bicker about curfews than make a single comment on this? Not trying to shut down debate, and lord knows that I’m as guilty of arguing about minutiae as anyone, but this is the type of thing that will actually help us heal and get to a better place in this country.
  10. Here’s the first part: https://youtu.be/So_PC3rHrXA The video at this link shows part of the prayer in response: https://www.click2houston.com/video/news/2020/06/01/white-people-kneel-ask-forgiveness-from-the-black-community-in-third-ward-pt-2-/
  11. I haven’t been able to find the full video of the people praying together in Houston’s third ward, but it is pretty amazing. You need to see the whole video that shows the prayer of both the white people gatherEd and the black people gathered. I wonder if there are those who will react negatively to white people on their knees asking for forgiveness for decades of racism. I hope not.
