On a serious note, heading to Wyoming tomorrow morning to buy a shit load of mortars for the 4th. Good thing my wife is killing the OT, going to be spendy!
I have to go to WA and they moved it out of Vancouver, WA so I’ve got to go even further now. I love 4th or July.

Same here. Favorite holiday for fun and family. They cancelled our local show but we have a 2nd house just north of here so we are having a barbecue and blasting off our own.

I get what you’re saying. It’s not perfect by any means. I think the BET and minority hiring was good at the time. I do think it is something that can be improved on and this is helping to get there. We have a long ways to go and a lot to figure out.
To be fair you already do and have your points for being a white male. I know I do and I have had it easier as a white male.
We will have to agree to disagree. I got zero extra point for being white. I did not grow up rich, I did not get offered any scholarships to go to school because I was of a certain group, I've had to work damn hard for everything in my life.

In fact, because I've worked for the Govt. both the Postal Service and now the State of AZ, I was punished for being a white male. My score on the exams to get the job were not padded with any extra points for the color of my skin. People with lower scores were hired before I was because of it.

Houston did not cancel their fireworks they just cancelled people showing up for the party. So people will have to watch from their cars or on the tube.

That would be nice.

Completely cancelled ours and we supposedly have the biggest show in the west, doubtful in my opinion. We usually watched from my work anyway, I'm not a big fan of crowds except for metal concerts or fast motorcycles.

I know that story. I didn’t grow up with a sliver spoon. I didn’t get any free ride or anything handed to me. I’ve worked hard to get everything I have. Took loans out and got a couple grants for my grades in college. I’ve never expected anyone to give me anything materialistic. I do think everyone should have basic human needs met (see attached chart)
I didn’t have to worry about walking around day or night, driving day or night or going into stores and having people look at me like I’m going to steal something or hurt them. My mom never had a conversation with me when I was young about the color of my skin and how others will look at me and judge me for that. I wasn’t told about how I needed to act a specific way around police and when engaging with police. I haven’t had to deal with my kids coming home crying because another kid called them names because of the color of their skin. I won’t have to have those conversations with my children and honestly no one should. That’s white privlage.

I have seen this personally with college applications. My GPA, SAT, and ACT test scores where all better than my Hispanic friend. He gets into UW and gets a minority scholarship. I didn't even get accepted. But the big difference is, I don't blame him. I blame the system.

So how is burning your city down, looting, rioting, and tearing down history helping? I'm good with peaceful protesting for sure, just do it peacefully.
Seems to me this is causing more problems but I'm not sure. I've only heard bits and pieces from co-workers, I haven't watched any news in 5 years.
I did listen to what drew Brees had to say and I agreed with him until he apologized. Cancelled my NFL ticket the next day, doubt the NFL even plays but I'm done either way with it.

Smart dude right here. Only guy I follow on Instagram that's not family or car detailing. He called this shit in March.

Not really a conspiracy theory if it's the truth?

Went out to eat at a nicer steak house in town Saturday night. Completely packed with zero people wearing masks. Was so refreshing, and no our numbers haven't spiked. 1 death in our county and 1 patient in the hospital. Most patients have been from other states and counties.

For sure!

Having the time of my life.

Let me guess there are dead people in the streets and being piled into freezers of some sort. Maybe like the walking dead show?

I have not heard one person say that a mask other than the 95 or what ever it is does stop the virus. Wearing something anything is just another way to try to prevent getting the bug!!! Social distancing and not being in crowded place and getting close to people and talking for amounts of time!! are all preventatives. Like I said earlier common sense goes a long way and some people have more common sense than others!!!
