If I Lived In A Chaotic City Like Chicago...

 ...or Portland (OR), Seattle, Los Angeles, San Fransicko Francisco, New York, Philadelphia or many others, I am of the opinion that would arm myself whether or not it was legal for me to do so. I say that because of violence like that reported on in this linked article and because I value my life and the lives of other innocent folks who wind up being victims because they could not defend themselves successfully against such barbarians. If the law was to say I cannot arm myself to defend myself or others from such violent scum, I would strongly consider violating that law. When these thugs are attacking you and you are in fear of death or serious bodily injury,I am of the belief that you should be ready, willing and ABLE to fight back. Sure, it would be better to avoid conflict but when it is all around you and attacking you - then you should fight back as I see it. Stopping them is the goal but if you kill one or more of them while trying to stop them in order to protect yourself & other innocents - from serious bodily harm or death - tough noogies for them. What they need, it seems to me, is instant justice by way of armed self-defense meted out by the attacked victim(s). I am not condoning illegal behavior, just considering I might do it if I lived in places like those mentioned and am most assuredly supporting the concept of a natural right, that of self defense in order for the targets of such attacks to remain alive, hale and injury free.
By the way, look at the video & photos in the article. Were they purposefully chosen to be included because for the most part they show the sides & backs of the rioters, very few are seen from the front. Really, do it, look at those photos & the video carefully. How many different racial groups of apparent troublemakers do you see in them? I see 4 or 5 individuals (other than law enforcement), who are evidently walking in the opposite direction of the mob who seemingly are not of the same race or ethnicity as all (or at least the great majority) of the rioters. I am not being racist, I am stating a fact as I see it. It kind of, sort of really dismays me that there is not a clear picture of the group from an angle that would allow the viewer to see the faces of most of them and I wonder if that was purposeful on the part of the main stream mud slinging media. My bet would be: Yes, it was just that - done purposefully.
All the best,

Promise To Be Back Soon - or - Am Back As Of Now

 Between the laptop going kerflooey; me feeling not so well on and off, my income tax returns (that I was finished with about two weeks ago, then had to redo all over again because Tax Act had them do a disappearing act & could not retrieve my returns), then when redoing them to find out there were a few mistakes that even the so called Tax Act experts could not figure out (but with their assistance going over the forms on my NY & AR state returns, I luckily & happily figured out more or less myself because while they helped reviewing them they did not have a clue how to fix them but steered me in the right direction to see the errors I had made); the dismal news on how China is close to starting WW III after Biden has totally screwed up our National Security (probably because they have the goods on him relative to corruption on his part); what with Biden cutting oil production, pushing for electric vehicles, ovens & such while depleting the Strategic Oil Reserves of the United States (which were supposedly only to be used strategically as the name implies - like during time of war); all this transgender bullshit of people who are in essence spoiled rotten brats wanting to be what they want to be - even though impossible such as a man becoming woman - just because they want to be it and screw the rest of us who are normal folks satisfied more or less with what we are endowed by nature; the cancel culture mentality of the leftists; the anti-Constitutional behavior of several states and of the federal government; the border crisis destroying the sovereignty of the USA; those on the right giving in relative to almost everything that the leftists demand no matter how crazy; and all the other crap in the news that is making me sick - I have not had the incentive to blog about anything.

Well, the taxes are done (getting a refund of substantial amount even after my wife gets her 40% of it), they all have been sent in and at least the federal & NY forms accepted. Time will tell for AR because I was required to mail them to AR in paper format - totally ridiculous I could not submit them electronically as like the others just because I need not pay any tax in AR due to a certain exemption. Anyway completing the taxes has been a big relief. 
The laptop is working more or less okay but not at 100% so it still needs a bit of a fix but that can wait. I am coping with all the other stinking shit stuff a bit better and decided that not writing about it or anything is not the key of how to handle it at least for me.

So, hi-ho, hi-ho it's off to blog I soon will go. In fact, I guess I just started over again.

All the best and thanks for standing by,
Glenn B
