Charged with burning a BLM banner after a Dec Trump rally.

How in the hell is that illegal?

Len

Mine is pixels? Looks fine on my end as does yours, now, CCGirl.

For JMH if she's lurking;

Porch, only the US Flag can be burned, legally.

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

Porch, tough time to be resolved about being healthy, especially with a full house! My motto is not “dry January, but “cutting it back January.”

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

sb, “to resolve to be healthy.”

Ooh, helicopter rolling in at rally.

The British demonstrated it's possible to burn Washington DC [albeit illegally] but;
1. They didn't pay a price for doing so and;
2. I bet it was fun.

Okay, I am watching. How can I not?

Mine too and I'm not doing too bad. Drinking less as well. Maybe not tonight, lol.

Almost 250K now.

They're not even going to let him talk - "FIGHT FOR TRUMP" chant already breaking out.

He has to stump for these chumps but he will do it, because that's the kind of guy he is.

If you don't run the video full screen, Google puts in pro-Biden propaganda.

Thanks, Dave. CCGirl, it is hexagons.

Fight for Trump!

Hate crime, Ig... interesting to see how they square that with black/cuban Enrique, though. "white hispanic" ain't quite gonna cut it.

Hexagons.... reminds me of Panzerblitz. :)

henry

Len, yes... and they had Gettysburg. A Christmas gift from my grandfather the year we walked the battlefield. Ike was under the weather that week, so my parents and grandparents visited... but my brothers and I were stuck at the hotel.

clarice

I'm getting the vaccine sometime after the 11th. My mother got it tofay. I'm not afraid of the virus or the vaccine but I want this country opened asap and if that helps, I'm for it.

Narciso

A very disturbing word picture henry

James D.

I loved the Avalon Hill (and their spinoff Victory Games) products.

Arab-Israeli Wars was fantastic
The Fleet series from Victory Games (2nd Fleet, 6th Fleet, etc) was also great.

Narciso

About thr shadow governor, who is the size of a small moon.

henry

Narciso, I met quite a few of my grandfather’s classmates. Ike wasn’t up to it. Now that I’m over 60, I totally understand.

Len

We went from Risk to Diplomacy to Stalingrad. I'm sure I'm forgetting one but Gettysburg would have been good.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Tank getting exposed.--

No greater horror can be imagined. Kill me now.

Narciso

James D, my brother is in a Panzerblitz league in Florida. We played last time he was in Wisconsin. (He kicked my butt).

Momto2

He says he's coming back to Ga. to campaign against Governor Kemp in 2 + years!!!!
Kemp = toast!

James D.

A-H's sports games were pretty good, too.

Statis-Pro Baseball (similar to Strat-o-Matic) was fun, especially the 100 entry Unusual Play chart

Their boxing game, Title Bout, was cool as well.

Oh, Diplomacy! I played in a thoroughly cutthroat online game back in grad school. Fun times!

Narciso

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Hate crime, Ig--

Considering the SCOTUS already ruled burning the US flag is political speech seems to me a malicious prosecution suit might succeed after he wins.
Not to mention an antiSLAPP motion.

James D.

Not Avalon hill, but Supremacy (sort of a cross between Diplomacy and Axis & Allies, but set at the height of the cold war, and with nuclear weapons rules) was a fun pastime back in college.

One aspect of the game was that if too many nuclear weapons were used, all players lost due to nuclear winter. Every single game I played ended that way, because someone who saw no other road to victory decided that if they couldn't win, nobody would, and blew up the world.

It will probably come as no surprise that that player was usually me.

The only good thing kemp was open ip the state, first promptimg the 'human sacrifice' claim from that orca at the atlantic. Nen

Narciso

Well that was soviet military strategy. They didnt seem to inform nato command about that.

Porchlight

henry, do you mean Eisenhower? I am not understanding your story.

Porchlight

Good point narciso. Kemp did open up the state against major pressure. Should get credit for that at least.

Len

Sink the Bismarck was the other one we played. Had to look it up. It was a few years ago...

Davod

Vandalizing a Black church.

anonamom

Smoking for the first time in two weeks. I wasn't really trying to quit, so no big deal.

Good for you!!--for the two weeks.
Now do it again.
(Successful former smokers have quit eleven times. Just keep quitting!)

I do feel your pain. I smoked for three months, 45 years ago. I still want a cigarette at least twice a week.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

I was just informed that Enrique was also charged with destruction of private property... pretty rich seeing it was BLM flag. :eyeroll:

BTW anyone seen Janet on FB or anywhere else lately?

clarice

Last Janet post on FB is dated dec 25.

"Fox News' Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade Shoot Down Trump's Mass Voter Fraud Allegations, Say There's 'No Proof Of It'"

Shocked to see this. They must be reading from the 'keep your job' script.

Porchlight

anonamom, I hadn't intended to quit, but I'm sort of a social/celebratory smoker, so it's easy for me to go for awhile if I'm not hanging out with smokers.

I feel like I saw Janet activity more recently than Christmas. I hope she's okay.

Momto2

Taking the stage the first thing out of Kelly's mouth - "On Jan. 6th I will object to the electoral college vote." Apparently, she FINALLY heard from the base!

Worth the click.

henry

Porch, yes. Ike retired to Gettysburg. Grandfather suggested a family vacation to tour that battlefield in 1970. Ike was close to my family, my uncle was his naval aide. My mom and younger brother ran into Maimie at a Howard Johnson’s in St Charles, and Maimie made the SS agents let mom and bro through as old friends.

We went to Pearl Harbor in 71. Stayed at my uncle’s Quarters on Ford Island (he was an admiral that was a pilot on the carriers in 41) . Met General Fielder and Admiral Christie... they enjoyed explains Tora Tora Tora and a John Wayne sub movie (where I asked about torpedoes designed by Christie not exploding on contact).

Porchlight

Checking FB, clarice is correct. Hope you are okay Janet. Check in if you are lurking!

henry

Len, sink the Bismarck was a favorite. Always sacrifice the Hood andPrince of Wales. ;)

jimmyk

Ike was close to my family, my uncle was his naval aide.

Henry, I've told the story of my father standing next to Ike at the urinals in the men's room at the Officer's Club in London around 1944. Doesn't get much closer than that.

Porchlight

Wow, thanks, henry. That's so cool. You were blessed to grow up with that connection.

Len

Henry - that must have been pretty cool.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

He didn't turn to salute did he, Jimmy?

Narciso

Maybe thats a little too close for confort

Porchlight

My late FIL would have turned 100 this year. We have color film footage he shot at the Baton Rouge airport whistle stop Ike made in 1956 on his reelection campaign tour.

henry

Jimmyk, your father likely peed next to my grandfather as well! How cool!

Narciso

Those are wonderful memories however.

jimmyk

Iggy, of course as kids that was the first thing we asked when he told the story.

I think Trump is trying to punish us by throwing GA to the Dems.

He just put the gawdawful Ivanka on stage.

Huh?

@vickimckenna

UW-Madison chancellor signs off on removing a big ROCK. Why? Because the rock is racist. Not the name ON the rock, the rock ITSELF. Mind you, this campus has a building named after an infamous EUGENICIST—but it’s the ROCK that must go.

speaking of military families, I wrote Tom Mustin with season's greetings and have not heard back. Unusual. Hope he's well.

Narciso

Maybe she can hit it off (phrasing) with hunter.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Worth the click.--

That entire thread is eclectically hilarious.

henry

Clarice, I hope Tom Mustin is well. Like most military men I’ve met, he is a gentleman as well as an officer.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I stood about 4 ft from Ike and Maimie down on the track with them standing in the vestibule of a business car at a whistle stop in Livingston MT in 1952. My big sis got a flower from Maimie’s bouquet. November in Livingston is a bit nippy.

Saw him again much further away down on the Columbia at the dedication of McNary dam about 1956.

Oh FFS;

A 70-ton boulder seen by some students on UW-Madison’s campus as a racist symbol is another step closer to being removed from Observatory Hill.

Chamberlin Rock, named after geologist and former university president Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “n*****head,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.

The Wisconsin State Journal printed the slur in a 1925 headline. UW-Madison historians were unable to identify any other time the term was used but said the Ku Klux Klan had an active presence in Madison at that time.

The Wisconsin Black Student Union and Wunk Sheek, a Native American student organization, pushed for the rock’s removal over the summer, saying it is a daily reminder of the injustices students of color have faced on a predominantly white campus.

The Wisconsin Black Student Union and Wunk Sheek didn't land on Chamberlain Rock, Chamberlain Rock landed on them comprises their crania.

Narciso

Concussive stupidity seems contagious there mt

Jimmyk, Marshall sent my grandfather to London to sort out logistics (ammo stocks) pre DDay. Bedell Smith took my grandfather’s star for reporting the truth: the ammo was where it was supposed to be in the correct quantities. (Marshall fixed that, but Bedell Smith is the only fellow officer my grandfather uttered a discouraging word towards). On d-day plus one, my grandfather was appointed Normandy Base Section Command.
