The Sad Death of Hero John Hurley

John Hurley was in a store when he heard several gunshots outside. A police officer had just been fatally wounded by a gunman. He rushed outside, told innocents to take cover and engaged the shooter. He was eventually gunned down but it is unknown whether or not it was the bad guy or a responding police officer who killed him (or I imagine he could have accidentally shot himself). The video, at the below link, tells a much better account of what is known so far than the written article at the same link. More at the source: I wish he had not wound up being a victim and I also hope with all my heart it was not a cop who killed him!
What a shame this happened to a man who did the absolute right thing. RIP John Hurley - my condolences to his family, loved ones & friends.
Be careful out there is you ever do the right thing to help out in such a situation.

All the best,

When President Trump Was In Office, I Feared...

 ...on an almost daily basis, that I would awaken in the morning to learn that he had been assassinated. I really expected not so much that it would happen but that some far left wing nut would at the very least try to kill him. It gave me the creeps every night for at least the last year or so of his presidency. I guess it was driven by the intense hatred of those on the left for him and for anything he did for America. 
Today, I have no to little fear that some far right wing nut will try to kill President Biden; although one never knows. What I do have now, is an anticipation that I will awaken one morning, go to the news online or turn on my radio, to learn that Biden has met his end - in whatever way his end comes about be it assassination, accidental death or natural causes - and that I will smile when I learn of it. 
To tell the truth, I think for one of the few times in my life, the death of a political figure - his death in particular - would actually make me happy. Why is that? Well, I think he is bad for America - very, very, very bad - and that he is well on his way to destroying our great nation, our Constitution and our way of life while looking to create a tyranny bent on ruling by way of communist and socialist ideals. To me, it seems that just about everything he has done to date since he became president proves it. 
Despite the fact that his demise might make me smile a happy smile, I do not actually wish anything bad upon him but if it comes it comes. I hope you can understand what I mean: I do not wish harm upon the man but sincerely wish that the severe harm I believe he evidently is causing to our nation and way of life would end immediately and if that happened and I think it would make me a happy man however it was brought about. Note, I am definitely not advocating that anyone go out and try to off him or harm him - and I for one am most certainly not about to attempt something like that. I am just saying how I think it would make me feel if I found out tomorrow that he had dropped dead tonight because that is about the only way I can imagine him being removed from office and as a threat to our country anytime soon. Of course he might also be declared mentally incompetent but it would likely take a stroke or some other fate almost as bad as death, if not worse, to accomplish that.
What it comes down to though is this: As much as I hate the fact and wish it was not so - he is my and our president. I believe that most of those who are republican, conservative, libertarian or even hard core right wingers agree with me on this by now - as much as they hate the fact just as I do that he is in the oval office - we understand and accept he is our president. Now think about this: how many democrats, liberals, socialists, communists or other leftist radicals do you know who believed that about President Trump - that he was their president at anytime during his four years in office. They hated him and tried to destroy him and the extremely good changes he brought about for our people and our country and one of their most prominent sayings about him was: he's not my president. Most did not even bother to say: 'He's not our president',  The truth is liberals are for the great part so self centered that just about everything they do or say or believe is based on the principle of 'me myself & I' as opposed to it being based upon 'we, our & us' as it should be in a unified America!
