A lot

A lot of observations…. Cowardly, our peerless fearless leader. They turned off the lights at the White House (Sunday night); the President failed to address the nation, instead he Tweeted. He (fearless leader) encouraged (MAGA) counter-protests. NONE! The number of cities under siege increased (by a lot!!). Police crossed the line and marched with protesters. Tiananmen Square, 1989, the time the police did that, the government brought in tanks. You gonna do that Mr Pres? Or, Egypt, Arab Spring, 2010, the country fell and its leader was jailed. We know the origin was in Tunisia where a merchant immolated himself protesting his government. Blame it on Covid19?

You can run, but, you can’t hide. Crimes you committed have a way of coming ‘round to bite you in the ass. Barr and the SCOTUS can’t protect you. 125 cities had protests Sunday night. National Guard got called in 21 states. There are more of us than you. But who’s you? Follow the leader. Who’s leading?


Forgiveness

Cardinal, as in bird, is a very skittish one. He does not like to pose. Male? You bet. This is its specific coloration. The female is another color. Duh! It’s a soft photo. (it’s a nice way to say, it’s out of focus). But you will forgive me, if the eyes have a catch light in them. It just makes the photo seem sharp. Not. But that’s my argument and I’m stickin’ with it. My bad, I was shooting through the window (glass) and the screen. Of course, I was challenged. I got a shot or we would not be speaking about this at all. And, not another word – ’bout me being challenged.
