I don't support George Floyd, he was a criminal that was jailed several times and he was NOT a pillar of society. George Floyd was NOT a good man, he doesn't deserve to be memorialized, and all these idiot liberals that think he does, need their head examined.

Confederate Flags and Racism: not on Fed Property, "But..."

Posted 06-12-2020 at 11:02 PM by Blondebaerde

That conflict was a hobby of mine, rather casual, since "Gettysburg" (masterpiece film, based on "the Killer Angels" by Jeff Shaara) came out in 1993.

You Could Say I've Kicked Allergy Season

Posted 06-09-2020 at 06:14 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Victory, thy name is Case. Made it through another May, and the sneezes were fewer than normal. I haven't taken allergy medicine in more than three weeks.

What COVID-19 crisis? Okay, that's pushing it, but I was wearing a mask, even carrying over into allergy season. Grass pollens were doing what they always do every year at this time. Allergens don't care if you wear a mask or not. In a typical year, I would have sneezed my life silly from hour...
