    Don, here in western NC there were some parties during the day and yes as the sun was setting fireworks going off all over our entire neighborhood. As I speak they are still going off.
    A lot applause and cheering!

    It's still going very strong here as of 10:15 est. Nothing remotely like it in previous years, maybe it's a sign of positive things to come! All Americans need is leadership and direction. . .

    That is one of the all time classic episodes! Agree with Shadowlight that “Time Enough at Last” is another.

    I really love when they have the Twilight Zone marathons on TV. It’s not only a great show with poignant lessons, but it’s also a glimpse back in time to when America was an unabashedly White country. For a millennial like myself, it’s heartbreaking to see what we lost and what I and my children will likely never experience.

    As I write this at roughly midnight, the fireworks are still going strong. The area of eastern LI I’m in is firework crazy but I’m guessing there was an uptick from last year. It’s pretty impressive what so many houses do here. Professional grade fireworks, on par with a show you’d see after a minor league baseball game. They must spend thousands of dollars. Also you have to factor that they drive over 3 hours into Pennsylvania to buy them.

    Many patriotic Americans still left here. A far cry from the communist hellhole of NYC.

    Here in a more rural area of western Washington there were fireworks going off all around us from about 8 until 11 or so. The stark contrast in culture is very apparent when you get about an hour outside of Seattle. It goes from rainbow sidewalks to Trump 2020 signs. The further you get from King County the less people wear masks too. It's like living in a different country.

    Lot of bars were open in North Central Wisconsin, with people utilizing the outdoor patios . Probably saw about 40 or so people riding ATVs on the trail besides the highway! A couple of the communities also went ahead with their fireworks show.

    Busy drive home from the Northwoods too.

    Mount Olympus: Titan Tyron Woodley vs. Will Sutton - The Titan Games



    Will is a (fit) schoolteacher while Tyron is sworn by most MMA fans and commentators to be a "supreme athlete".

    Just thinking a bit. Although I watch about zero TV (the only time I see TV is when I'm in a public place that has on on). My wife who backs me up on everything publicly (but as a good wife she will tell me off if she thinks I'm wrong but in private) doesn't watch TV ether (we don't have one in the house) but when she was in the hospital last year she had one. I couldn't believe the stupidity/propaganda of it all, especially the commercials. But now it's in the printed word as well. sometimes I read the NYPost articles on line (free - I wouldn't pay a dime for any jewish run rag) and the inability of the writers to write a coherent small article is obvious. It just goes to show what type of education they're getting in these so-called colleges. I was a very-very bad student (if I could even have been considered a student in those days) but I could write better than that in the 5th-6th grade. But it doesn't matter what you're talking about anymore, the level of ability/efficiency is in the toilet.

    Yes, the writing today is terrible. The five Ws of journalism are Who, What, Where, When and Why. When you read things today you barely know what's happening. Most articles don't include the essential information that is covered by the five Ws.

    Judge won’t free teen incarcerated since May for not doing classwork
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This judge is a total nut. However, in her defense, she's a woman. It's the sh*tbirds who appointed her to sit as a judge who're at fault. She's just doing what women do. They can't help it. It's just their nature. Forget about sitting as a judge or serving in an "elected" position. Women just never should have been given the vote in the first place. The stupidity of everything we see today started when women got the vote.

    People wonder how things got so bad. Women getting the vote is a big part of it.

    Apparently, they took down two statues of Christopher Columbus last night in Chicago. There was a picture of two workers in a man lift taking it down (NYPost), both White guys. Don't any blacks do rigging and aren't there any black owned rigging outfits? Of course, that's a joke. I've watched blacks attempt elementary rigging. It's a real comedy.

    Black armed militia planning Louisville march claims it’s ‘Not F---ing Around’
    When I see this type of thing occur, I always wonder if they've got the heart to go to a little town in a rural county maybe a hundred or so miles from a city like Louisville and announce they're coming and they're "not f---ing around?"

    Is this the same group that was at Stone Mountain a few weeks ago? If any white militia pulled this stunt they would draw the ire of the Marxist media, leftist politicians and Rinos - the outcry against them would be huge. I guess being in a black militia has its privileges (being facetious of course because we all know blacks are the most protected class in amerika - even more so than a certain tribe)

    Gentlemen, Olivia de Havilland has died. She was a 104 years old, the last surviving cast member of "Gone with the Wind." A lot of people said Hattie McDaniel stole this scene but I don't care, just to se such calm elegance as Olivia de Havilland is enough beside the bovine mewling Mammy.

    the Marlins against the Orioles at Marlins Park

    What won't be said is how many players of color (Latino) were among the ones that tested positive. I hope this entire baseball thing falls through its' butt.

    Senators and Congressmen Who Hold Dual Citizenship with Israel
    conservative-headlines.org/89-of-our...
    Sep 23, 2018 · We are in Syria because of Israel. Ask yourself who is the real traitors to the country sacrificing American soldiers for the benefit of a foreign country. Corporate U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives that are Israel Dual Citizens: Here is a list of US politicians who have dual US/Israeli citizenship.
    This is an interesting little tidbit. I knew there were some Zionist senators and representatives but was surprised at how many.

    Finally some good news. Mike Golic is ending 25yrs of endless stupidity Friday. His radio show is mercifully coming to an end. He admittedly wanted to continue but Trey Wingo didn't like getting up that early. Maybe he should get a job on a diary, I think I saw him milking a cow on the show.
