Chicago melts down

Chicago's mayor and aldermen are reduced to swearing at each other and asking difficult questions like, "How in the world are we going to get businesses to rebuild in war zones when we seem to have no plan?"

Some of the neighborhoods are starting to implement their own plans:
Ald. Patrick Daley Thompson (11th Ward) told Lightfoot he was worried that the looters would attack homes where many people have guns and concealed carry weapons.
Ald. Ed Burke (14th Ward) said he was concerned that residents would take matters into their own hands and become vigilantes.
Seattle's down the tubes, too.

They are correct. Governments that fail can be replaced.

Seattle has run out all the businesses worth visiting, anyway

I live across the water to the west. It comes down to holding three ferry docks, a two bridges and an isthmus. Seattle is about to get what they voted for, good and hard.

The protests are now separate. One is mostly white and female, the other is largely male and black. they don't have that much contact in some cities. Very odd. I'd like to see some enterprising videographer show us the contrast.

Humans are waking up
This is the blm version just like metoo. A whole bunch of stuff is waking people up t the fact that the world was not what they have been told. This process is painful but not unexpected. Back 2018 or so, i was telling people it would get darker before the dawn.

Pray for us____ lightfoot

No, i do not think praying will help you. I have already communicated my recommendation to the divine counsel that humanity will only awaken if pain and suffering does it on a limited scale. With few deaths. You do not eant me praying for more at this time.

Since I have a lot of family in the Jackson Hole area, I see the news from there sometimes. They're having multiple protests, weekend after weekend. I haven't seen a black person in any of the photos of the crowds yet.

Small wonder. According to the 2010 census the population of Jackson is 0.4% African American, and the population is around 10,000 people. So one percent of ten thousand is 100; four tenths of that is 40. We're talking about forty people. If helping them was really the point, there are all kinds of ways you could improve the lives of forty people with a motivated crowd like that. Instead they're doing nothing useful, just whipping themselves and their culture and country in public, weekend after weekend.

There's something going on here that has nothing to do with actually improving things for black people in America.

I doubt one of those Jackson hole protesters has ever even missed lunch.
Jackson Hole is to Wyoming what Aspen is to Colorado.

Yeah, my family all live on the Idaho side. Jackson itself is too expensive.

Apparently all Trump is doing is controlling DC (District of Columbia, capital, which is great for 93% of Hussein voter there) and tweeting law and order. This seems like another, "let's wait until Dems burn enough down and wake people up, before the President does something" modus operandi of the Alliance.

It's not against my strategy but... it is quite strange watching Trump adhere to it. As if he had been ordered to do so. As if there is a plan he know sthat we do not.

And if you watch his body language as he walked over to that church... this is not a man that is shaking in his boots. This is a guy that wants to fight... so who or what is stopping him, supposedly the most powerful person on Earth?

There are plenty of more powerful factions that constrain him. ANd he know s it by now.

When people told me Trump would save the nation, I am like... what? Not based on what Iknow. He can barely save himself and his capital.

There's something going on here that has nothing to do with actually improving things for black people in America.

Look to the skies and heaven. June 13 nears. Things like eclipses actually do change the human plot.
