all rioters, looters & arsonists need killing

friday, april 30th, 2021

I'll never forget the 1968 Democrat Convention in Chicago, when I was 17 and home from Drake University on Summer vacation, watching the 3-4 day chaos just 20 miles away in the NW Chicago Suburb of Arlington Heights, with my Parents. I was astounded at the days and nights of riots, arson and small store looting. Mayor Daley's police battalions had more than a handful, but beat the shit out of everyone they caught, then marched them off to jail.

Derek Chauvin, the policeman who held his knee on Floyd's neck for nearly eight minutes, was fired along with the three other officers involved. Chauvin was charged with manslaughter and second-degree murder. The other three policemen were charged with aiding and abetting murder. Widespread Protests and Riots spread to other American cities and then to other countries with Floyd's murder garnering international condemnation.[13] Protest tactics included peaceful occupation and resistance, but was overshadowed by widespread looting and damage of private and public properties. In the Seattle neighborhood of Capitol Hill, an occupation protest and self-declared autonomous zone was established on June 8, 2020 covering six city blocks and a park after the Seattle Police Department left their East Precinct building.

•2021 – Storming of the United States Capitol, January 6 – After allegedly being called to action by President Donald Trump, a large group of protestors stormed the United States Capitol in an attempt to enter the chamber and protest the certification of Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. There is debate whether or not President Donald Trump's speech was what initially incited the protestors to break into the Capitol building. It has been noted by some news outlets that the President began his speech at 12:00 PM and it lasted until 1:11 PM, while the actual first wave of protestors that broke into the capitol arrived there at 12:40 PM - 30 minutes before the alleged inflammatory statement to "fight like hell" was said near the end of the speech, at roughly 1:10 PM. Nonetheless, during the demonstrations The Capitol was vandalized, including doors, windows, and offices, prompting members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence to evacuate. One death occurred as a direct result of the unrest, and several additional deaths were reported subsequently but determined to be due to unrelated or natural causes.[17] Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran from Southern California, was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer as she attempted to enter through a broken window leading to the Speaker’s Lobby inside the Capitol. Another protestor, Kevin Greeson was talking to his wife on the phone on the west side of The Capitol when he suffered a fatal heart attack. During a rush of protestors attempting to fight their way through the police line, Rosanne Boyland was unintentionally crushed, which resulted in her death. Protester Benjamin Philips died later under unclear circumstances apparently of a stroke. While originally believed to have been a victim of blunt force trauma or chemical spray during altercations between protestors and police, officer Brian Sicknick also died shortly after the violence from a stroke. Nearly 140 police officers were injured. In the aftermath of the unrest, the Chief of the Capitol Police resigned under pressure and President Trump was impeached a second time under accusation of incitement of insurrection. His trial ultimately resulted in an acquittal by the Senate making him the first president to have an impeachment trial occur after his Presidential term was completed, and also the first US President to be impeached and acquitted twice. •2021 – Daunte Wright protests, April 11 – Ongoing, On April 11, police officer Kim Potter fatally shot 20-year-old African-American man Daunte Wright during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, near where former police officer Derek Chauvin was standing trial for the killing of George Floyd. Protests demanding justice for Wright were met with force by law enforcement, who used tear gas, canisters, and other methods to disperse protesters. Several demonstrations escalated into riots with property damage, looting, and violent clashes between protesters and police. On April 14, after resigning from her position, Potter was arrested and charged with second-degree manslaughter. In response to the unrest, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey declared a State of Emergency and imposed a citywide curfew amid mass arrests. President Joe Biden condemned the looting and violence in Minnesota, advocating for peaceful protests. Demonstrations have since spread to other U.S. cities.

Is that enough of a "riot list for you? Sure is for me. It hardly touches on the hero police officers injured or killed, arson of small and medium businesses, and killings of innocent civilians. I am so angry that it happened, with rioters, looters and arsonists being let go. Protestors are allowed, IMO, but only to just before the point of violence. Once they cross it, they should be killed. As should all riotes, looters and arsonists, IMO. Got a fucking problem with that? Come to my zippcode - 17406 - call/email me, I'll meet you, we'll have it out, and I'll kill you and your subhuman BLM, antifa, commie, socialist, Marxist, anarchist punk friends. Got it, leftist scumbag assholes?

I firmly and ferverntly beieve that ALL rioters, arsonists and looters should be ID'd, targeted, shot and killed. I've had enough of it. BLM, antifa and any other commie, socialist, anarchist, Marxist, revolutionary group involved in those actions, need killing, on sight and on-the-spot. It's a regrettable fact-of-life for us and America. The bad guys don't play by the rules. It's long past time to fight them back, on equally deadly terms. Forget all the rules. I predict that'd bring it all to an quick end. Smell yourselves, leftist filth.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, I found my TopStyle v3.0 HTML Editor was corrupted and wasn't working. Shit. I had to scramble to get a new *.exe driver for it, online, to get Thursday's "Journal", posted. Then I posted the "Chris Plante Show" to FR, did the obligatory finger-stick for my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) reading, made coffee, had a couple smokes and a light breakfast. My left hip, thigh, knee and shin were hurting, so I rubbed-in CBD Pro-Level 5 Pain Ointment, and it helped a little.

After lunch, I caught 4hrs of rest on the couch, had dinner and watched some old DVDs of "Justified" (Timothy Olyphant) until 11:30p, and called it a night.

I slept-in until 10:30a on Saturday, a cloudy, very cool day. I somehow thought it was Sunday, so I shaved, showered and did 2 loads of laundry. I was disappointed when I discovered it was only Saturday; imagine that. Heh. After downloading and scanning/answering email, I watched History's "American Pickers" until dinner at 6p, and continued watching until 10p. Lights out.

I slept-in until 10a on Sunday, fired-up the furnace, had coffee and breakfast, and checked the TV schedule to see if there were any F-1, IndyCar or IMSA GT Endurance races on. There was an IndyCar street race from St Petersburg, FL, from 12-3p, so that was my only choice. It was a decent race, considering it was a narrow, twisty street course; not my favorite. I caught 3hrs of sleep on the LR couch, had dinner and watched some reruns of Discovery's "Gold Rush" until 10:30p, and pulled the plug for the night.

Up at 8a on Monday, I had some smokes and coffee, breakfast, and my L/S hip, thigh, knee were hurting, so I stayed inside until the back patio had full sun, then it was pleasant to sit and get some natural Vitamin-D. Some of my neighbors were doing the same thing. I did paperwork, paid utility bills online, picked-up a week's worth of mail, and grabbed a 3hr nap on the couch.

I was really unnerved when I saw and read this article: "Report: Pfizer and Moderna COVID 'Vaccines' Could Trigger Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Other Neurological Degenerative Diseases". Here's the link to the full report.

The temperature of the interior of your refrigerator, is less stable than the earth's temperature over the past 500 years.

After dinner, I watched some "Gold Rush" reruns, selected Fox News shows and wound-it-up the day at 11p.

Awake and up at 5:30a on Tuesday, due to a dull ache in my left knee, I went immediately for the CBD Pro-Level 5 Pain Ointment, and that helped to assuage pain in my lower back and right shoulder, too. I posted the "CP Show", checked the weather and news – tomorrow and Thursday are going to be hot and humid, in the upper 80s – did a few errands until my hip got bad, and came home. After a quick lunch, I took 3 100mg Gabapentin, and slept on the couch for 3½hrs. Knee and hip pain almost gone, amazingly. I had dinner, watched "The Curse of Oak Island" until 8p, when "Tucker" came on FNC, skipped "Hannity" and watched "Laura" until 11p. Lights out.

Up at 7:30a on Wednesday, it was already 67° and headed-up to 87°-plus, the forecast said. I had the condo temp set on AC at 74° all night, and would leave it there today and tomorrow. I made coffee, had a couple smokes, had breakfast and posted the "CP Show" to FR. This may be my last week for posting that thread. I had planned lunch with an old friend and Garden Center & Nursery customer of mine, Ray, minus and his lovely wife Patty, today at The Taylor Haus restaurant, just south of Stewartstown. I did a little watering and gardening before the day's heat set-in, and left at 11a, to run a few errands before meeting Ray.

It was good to see Ray again, and hear about his & Patty's life adventures, over the past 10+ years, since I saw them last. We had a nice meal at The Taylor Haus, said goodbye and promised to keep in touch, with some more regular lunches. I was amazed to see how the wonderful little towns of Stewartstown and Winterstown had changed, since it's been years since I was thru those places. After getting home, I grabbed 3hrs on the LR couch, watched some TV, had dinner and watched Discovery's "Iron Resurrection" and "Expedition Unknown" until 11p, and hit the sack.

My alarm went-off at 6a on Thursday, since the cleaning ladies would be here by 8:15-8:30, and I needed to be ready for them. I did the morning finger-stick to check BSL, made coffee and breakfast and had a couple smokes in the garage. I noticed that my white 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee HEMI V8 was "yellowish" from all the pollen, so after checking the news and weather, and seeing a massive t-storm front moving our way, I moved the Jeep out on to the driveway to get some of that stuff off the paint. I have a heavy polish (not just wax), so the pollen should wash right off, courtesy of Mother Nature.

It did get the pollen off, but racemes (pollen pods were knocked down by the rain and wind from the Pin Oak tree, and made a mess on the Jeep. After a visit to Sherry's and Becky's to drop-off some "Fire Island" Hostas, I hosed off the Jeep and put it back inside the garage for the night. After dinner, I watched unseen episodes of "GOLD RUSH: FREDDY DODGE’S MINE RESCUE" and "Fast and Loud", until 11p. Time for sleep. A new week here in the "Journal", starts tomorrow.

A Greek and An Irishman.

A Greek and an Irishman were sitting in a Starbucks one day comparing their two cultures.

Over a double latte, the Greek mentions "We built the Parthenon, you may recall, along with the Temple of Apollo."

"Aye, and it was the Irish that discovered the Summer and Winter Solstices."

"But it was the Greeks who gave birth to advanced mathematics."

"Granted, but it was the Irish who built the first timepieces."

Knowing that he's about to deliver the coup de grace, the Son of Athens points out with a note of finality:

"Keep in mind that it was the ancient Greeks who invented the notion of sex as a pleasurable activity!"

"Aye! True enough, but it was the Irish who got women involved."
