      The New Black Panther Party, a “black power” movement, will carry firearms for self-defense during rallies in Cleveland ahead of next week’s Republican convention, if allowed under Ohio law, the group’s chairman said.

      Nobody except cops will be allowed to carry guns near the convention. No protests will be allowed near rhe convention.

        Some NBPP members who don’t have felony convictions will strut around with guns this weekend under the watchful eyes of Cleveland PD.

      If gun violence is such a grave peril that it justifies infringing Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, shouldn’t it also justify infringing Matt Damon’s First Amendment right to make violent movies?

    No worries. I’m sure there will be plenty of armed Trump supporters. If the Black Panthers get the race war they want, I expect they’ll loose badly. It might be a busy few days in the ERs of Cleveland.

    Still on the fence for this “gathering”. Decided to wait til after the RNC convention to make a final decision to go or not to go. Have my tix and hotel room confirmed.

    Last night a bunch of my online buddies got into a heated discussion about Pokemon Go. One of the women’s husband was punched in the face at the supermarket by a woman who thought he was stealing her Pokemon. The store manager called the police, and the guy is pressing charges. He was texting his wife to ask if they needed toilet paper. The guy was apparently supposed to ignore it because it’s just a game.

    But it was Tuesday night so I was wearing my tinfoil hat. For those of you who are living under a rock, Pokemon Go is a cellphone game that’s essentially a scavenger hunt you play on your phone, but you actually have to go to real places to score points. There’s some “shoot ’em up” video game in the mix. On the positive side, it’s getting people out and about and checking out some places they might not have otherwise gone. On the negative side, catching Pokemons can be reminiscent of the Cabbage Patch Doll craze, and some people don’t know how to behave in a cemetery.

    But back to the tinfoil hat. After Columbine schools put procedures in place for how to handle a shooter or shooters in a school. The easiest way to target the kids is to pull the fire alarm and pick the kids off as they exit the school. Next best place is the school cafeteria. IOW, anytime and any place a large group of kids is going to be in a predictable place. Now we appear to have large numbers of people willing to go somewhere a game on their phone tells them to go. There’s no security in place in most of these places. While I’m not suggesting the game company has nefarious motives, they have written a blueprint for someone to set up a plot to wreak havoc, and we have proof large numbers of people will comply.

    I’m not suggesting the game is evil, or that people shouldn’t play it. It was just a Tuesday thing.

      “My friends play a game……”
      My wife has professional, single female friends in the 35-40 age range who say they want to be married, kids, etc. but have criteria/rules for dating that make chances of success, IMO, remote. There is a whole strange world out there of online dating, first and usually only dates at Starbucks and a lot of texting.

    Their best-case scenario is not getting laughed out of Cleveland.

    Just saying I have a friend that works for a charity foundation for a very successful country star. I hear she is not happy that some money went to CGI and 70% went to administrative costs.
    A career that has spanned 50 years she has never endorsed a candidate. Silent in politics. This year she spoke and said she supports neither. They claim in not saying Hillary she is backing Trump. Perhaps the most famous, successful country singer with a heart of gold does not endorse first woman ever. Dolly has brains and humor. Beneath it all was an inextinguishable talent.
    Why after staying out of politics uttering nothing would she say I am not choosing sides. First woman near Oval Office and the most respected woman in country breaks her silence to say not backing her flat out. Isn’t she saying no thanks hitlary.

    A warm up for “Day of Rage” …..Wife just sent me a text from work; the 22 y/o daughter of a former co-worker works at Sonic; the Sonic was robbed 2 hours ago by three B/Ms and she was shot multiple times; news said she is stable at hospital. Unusual for fast food workers to be shot during robbery.

      • SHV says:

        Wife just forwarded girl’s mother’s last FB post. Five shots to right chest, most superficial but right lung collapsed requiring several chest tubes. Very lucky girl.

        Wife reminded me that it’s time to renew our CWPs.

      But when those guys get caught, don’t put them in jail, cause there are too many black men in jail already.

      • SHV says:

        Just read latest news. She was “Car hopping” at the Sonic, 3 BMs refused to pay, robbed her of $30, then shot her six times. One shot to the neck, one shattered her right upper arm, one shot right to left across her chest and three more to right chest. Both lungs hit but no heart or blood vessels. Very very lucky girl. Arm may be worst injury if her radial nerve was shot away.

        But their being released as fast as possible.
        Election in November.
        Hillary needs all the votes she can’t steal.
