Kenosha punk who murdered 2 people last night was at a trump rally in Iowa in January

The Kenosha Shooting Suspect Was In The Front Row Of A Trump Rally In January https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ellievhall/kenosha-suspect-kyle-rittenhouse-trump-rally

Call it like it is, it's terrorism!

"I can excuse the murdering of Innocents but I draw the line at destruction of property"

And that is the invisible mindset we are dealing with....

Having a warrant does not justify being shot in the back. ‼️

Having a record does not justify being shot in the back. ‼️

Walking away does not justify being shot in the back. ‼️

THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION TO SHOOT A BLACK MAN IN THE BACK #JacobBlake #BlackLivesMatter

Kenosha, WI needs help! 😢

From a friends facebook post that wasn’t shareable: “Okay Kenoshans, round three is scheduled for noon TODAY! While looking for ways to assist this morning we spoke to credible sources that let us know the message being sent out is "to burn Kenosha down" starting at 12. Be safe!!”

This is really bad, folks! REALLY, bad! And I can’t do a thing to help! I’ve never felt this hopeless before in my entire lifetime. I have some long time friends living through this, and they’re all scared shitless!

Copied from a friend's post, who said it better than I could....bravo!



Franklin Graham claims God was absent from the Democratic Convention. So I posted this comment on his Facebook page in response. "God was absent?
I saw God in a thirteen year old boy speaking out about how an act of kindness made him feel good about himself.
I heard God's voice in Gabby Gifford's re-learning to use hers.
I saw God in Senator Duckworth standing tall on artificial legs after losing her own in service for our country.
I saw God in the woman whose life of service was inspired by a mother who asked, "What are you going to do about making it better?"
I heard God in the voice of a man who has never lost his faith despite being sorely tested in many ways.
So no, Franklin you might not have heard the name God invoked as you will during the Republican convention, but God was not absent — you just had to be open minded enough to hear him."

This part IS mine.
Despite the false memes I have seen, they did not strike the words “under God” from the pledge of allegiance.

The message that Biden/Harris sent was one of compassion and decisive action to make things better for those most in need. That’s what I learned in my faith training.
They do not defend nor accept attacks on others based on birthplace, color, or ability. They believe that elected officials must consider all the country, not just the parts that voted for them, or those who can reward them economically.
I believe faith supports social and economic justice.
Franklin Graham comes up short in many measures, but I’m not his judge. As I recall, it was he without sin that may cast the first stone.

Whole 30....pros and cons

I’m 68 and packed on the “Covid 15”....I’m at the pre-diabetic stage and at my last physical I had lowered my A1C to within the acceptable range with exercise at the gym and lowering my carb and sugar intake. Covid threw all that out the window! I just recently felt it was safe enough to go back to the gym (the club I am a member of due to my Medicare supplement, is the largest athletic club in WI and has it’s act together complying to CDC mandates and suggestions) but my daughter has been urging me to change my eating habits and doing the Whole 30 beginning 9-1.

I would like to lose 17 lbs and realize Whole 30 isn’t technically a weight loss program, but it should help keep my A1C levels low enough that I wouldn’t be a candidate for big pharma meds, right?

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

Spot the difference?
