All Those US Riots

In Saner Thought

Closing Thought–03Jun20

Now would be a good time for the old professor to interject some history into the news of the riots….what better time to learn some history if you are staying indoors….

There have been many riots over the years here in the good old USA….Haymarket, Watts, Tulsa, Detroit and so forth….let’s put them into context…..

The Haymarket Riot kicked off on May 4, 1886, after a bomb thrown from the crowd exploded in front of a squadron of policemen. All in all, 11 people died, making the Haymarket Riot one of the least deadly riots in American history.

You read that correctly. The infamous labor riot at Haymarket Square in Chicago was one of the least deadly riots in American history. But if the famous Haymarket Riot of the late 19th century doesn’t even come close to cracking the Top 10, which riots do, and why are they…

Genesee County, Michigan Sheriff Chris Swanson joining protesters.

I know so many of us have been transfixed by the horrifying images over the last few days of violence and destruction, as some peaceful protests have turned into rioting. And then of course there were the lovely images from last night of military police and soldiers firing rubber bullets and tear gas at peaceful protesters in front of the White House so the “Law and Order President“ and “ally of peaceful protesters” could have a photo-op in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church. But I’d like to call your attention to some images from around the country that aren’t getting as much attention.

Why Are Saudis Our Friend?

In Saner Thought

I keep asking this question with little information that would state firmly that they are our friends…..it is a question I have asked many times and as of yet have NO good answer why it is assumed that they are our friends.

That is the question….I mean there is still a chance that they knew about the attack on 9/11….but that aside look no further back than the attack in Pensacola last year…..

In December of last year, the United States suffered the first deadly, internationally orchestrated terrorist attack on its soil since 9/11 — when a Saudi Air Force trainee killed three US sailors and wounded eight others at a Navy air base in Pensacola, FL.

Last week, the FBI and Attorney General William Barr announced that data recovered from the cellphone of the perpetrator further confirms that the mass shooting was an act of terrorism, and that the…
