    Around here, American flags are scary!

    I updated the original post by clarifying that the flag must be on a freestanding pole generally in the front yard. Estate properties are exempted. Funny you reply today because on my morning ride I thought of taking a picture of one of the homes in my community that is known to local law enforcement. Stay tuned!

    I’ll return the Jagoff sign next week.

    In my precinct, 82% of voters went for Biden. A few are gun owners. The following flickas were snapped within 4 blocks of my residence.

    Maybe guns, plus awesome eagle on the tip of the pole

    My daughter has a flagpole, behind a fence, with the stars & stripes flying above a rainbow flag.

    Someone did come inside the fence to steal her Black Lives Matter sign. The 95-lb Rottweiler was not outside at the time.

    Again, as far as I'm aware, it's urban California intelligence. However, if a law enforcement unit encountered the collection of flags and signs your daughter displays, it could be psychically or intellectually traumatic. I mean Departments around here only require a high school equivalency.

    Article on The Conservation today: data shows that the central tenet of the conservative argument against shutdowns, that they do too much damage to the economy, is not supported by data.

    In a separate article, another mob called into question the shibboleth that death rates rise in economic downturns: in Australia at least they actually fall as there is no change in the suicide rate but deaths due to motor vehicle accidents decrease.

    If only they listened to science.

    Meanwhile, they want to strip mine near the Oke, take land away from Native Americans for mining, open a copper mine near BWCA, and give last minute oil&gas exploration permits away in the Artic.

    I think the only reason Pebble Mine isn't go ahead is Don Jr. wants to shoot the animals living there first. Once that's done, it's green light.

    I wonder if there's a particular political tendency for the folks who make these mods to their diesel vehicles?

    https://nyti.ms/365IHac

    "WASHINGTON — The owners and operators of more than half a million diesel pickup trucks have been illegally disabling their vehicles’ emissions control technology over the past decade, allowing excess emissions equivalent to 9 million extra trucks on the road, a new federal report has concluded."

    we'll see, I haven't read the actual ruling, only a news summary, but that ruling, while arguably unnecessary because the actual restrictions at issue had been suspended by the Gov., could address what I think is a germane issue--thee should not be disparate requirements on religious venues versus other secular venues.
    I'm not in NY, but it doesn't make sense to limit capacity or proximity at a religious venue any differently than another venue. I don't think there should be differences unless there is some concrete environmental data based on ventilation or some engineering control that impacts the spread of C-19. The flip-side is that in a pandemic, a religious venue shouldn't have ANY less restrictions--all those attending go out into the community spreading whatever they've been exposed to while attending religious services.
