Hard to believe, but Abraham Lincoln, often called the Great Emancipator, is now apparently being targeted by some portion of the feral thugs of the #BlackLivesMatter cells. OK, not that hard to believe. He was, after all, allegedly White and, therefore, racist insofar as that sort are concerned.
Sick, twisted, deranged, but not something any American can really be surprised by anymore.
Yes! Especially this year, I want Americans to really celebrate the 4th of July. Yes again! I want us all to raise a joyful and raucous noise unto the Heavens. But maybe remember that some of us don’t “respond well” to those fireworks throughout the night, and we really don’t respond well to those firearm discharges randomly interspersed with them.
Yeah, I know. It’s 2020 and our communities have broken down to the point where most of us don’t know enough about our neighbors to know whether one or more of them might be veterans with PTSD. Still, think about it.
And yes, I’ll likely be spending tonight in a separate bedroom from my wives with my two dogs, one of which has PTSD worse than mine. We’ve got our gear together – weighted blankets, her thunder shirt, and my noise-canceling headphones – and our other dog is a damn fine comfort.
Side hustles are just part of the modern economy. Sadly however, certain demographics have a different perspective – a different narrative, if you will – about what a side hustle is and entails. Those sorts tend more towards grifting, shucking, and jiving when they’re seeking people’s money.
