The split in the United States is not just politics/civil issues. Evangelicals are screwing things up. Presently big time Trump supporters.

Louisiana came up with a law that shows how religion is part of the splitting force. Louisiana adopted a law wednesday that requires all public classrooms to display the Ten Commandments.

Louisiana is the only state with such a mandate.

What happened to separation of Church and State?

Florida’s Senator Rubio is a pretty face. Nothing more. I have never been impressed with how he has conducted himself in any fashion. Presidential timber he is not.  Nevertheless, Trump is seriously considering him as his Vice President running mate.

Putin made a smart move with Kim Jung Un. If Russia is attacked, North Korea is technically committed to step in and defend Russia. The defense is “immediate.”

Again, a smart move on Putin’s part. He sold his soul (which he has sold in various fashions before) to the company store. In this instance, North Korea.

Will Kim Jung Un stand by the commitment he made? His name on a piece of paper is one thing. Actual activation of the agreement another. I am sure Kim Jung Un is happy being number one in North Korea and everything going his way all the time. Would not be the same if bombs started falling on North Korea and its people. Especially nuclear ones assuming Kim Jung Un drops one on the United States or its Allies.

Texans were “political whores” more than a 150 years ago and still are today. Their today political thrusts prove the “today point.”

It has been historically established that “Juneteenth” in 1865 did NOT as a practical matter end slavery in Texas. Enslavers were a cool group of businessmen. They would lose a ton of money if “their Blacks” were free. So they resisted the emancipation order and hid the news from enslaved Black people. They were never told they were free. They were kept working at forced labor for 50 plus years.

Black people were making inquiries in the early 1900’s as to whether slavery had ended.

DeSantis “gratuitous” to Florida residents. He is adding an extra day to harvest spiny lobster before mini-season. Sunday July 14. Only for Florida residents.

It would have been better had he done something to improve the financial position of Florida residents.

 A few extra lobsters in the freezer is not going to help the grocery bill.

Muhammed Ali refused to be drafted. As a result, he was sentenced to 5 years in prison. His conviction was later overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Looks like Caitlin Clark will get to play in the Olympics. I am sure she is sorry how it came about.

The WBNA #2 pick this year was Cameron Brink. She was named to the Olympic team. She tore her ACL in her left knee in a game tuesday night. She’s done for the season.

Cameron and Caitlin are close friends. Have been so since their early years. None of the crap being heaped on Caitlin has come from Cameron. 

It hurts when a sports figure is set down forever or for a while due to an injury. It’s a sad role of the dice. Happens often however. A danger of participating in sports.

Alberto is the first tropical storm of the season. Already touching Mexico, Alberto is expected to hit Texas.

Key West is presently considered not to be at risk.

Part of my physiotherapy is to walk. Walk when I am not formally working out.

I have been walking Publix and Home Depot. Needed a change of scenery. Tried Winn-Dixie earlier this week. Just walk, not shop.

I was surprised that many items are priced cheaper than at Publix where I have shopped for a number of years. Some items decidedly so. Campbell’s Soup one example. Thirty cents cheaper a can!

To be fair, some items are more expensive. The number of cheaper far outweigh the more expensive, however.

I returned to Winn-Dixie yesterday to shop for the first time in 30 years. Did not buy much. The cheaper items mostly.

When I was checking out. the check out lady asked for my card. What card? Turns out Winn-Dixie has some sort of discount program. There was a long line behind me. I said forget about signing me up today. I will do it the next time I come.

She was appreciative. Pulled her own card out of her pocket and swiped it, thereby providing me with the discount.

It amounted to 7 percent. A good deal!

Needless to say, I was impressed with Winn-Dixie. Will get a card and continue shopping there. I will not be deserting Publix. They still have items they offer that are cheaper.

Enjoy your day!
