…”Reports are that the truckers are getting supplies to the stores. People are stocking the shelves all night and letting the elderly shop first. Carnival Cruise line told Trump “We can match those big Navy Hospital ships with some fully staffed cruise ships” GM said hold our cars and watch this; we can make those ventilators where we were making cars starting next week. Women and children are making homemade masks and handing out snacks to truckers. Restaurants and schools said, We’ve got kitchens and staff; we can feed kids.” Churches are holding on-line services and taking care of their members and communities. NBA basketball players said, “Hold our basketballs while we write checks to pay the arena staff.” Construction companies and tattoo shops said, “Here are some masks for the medical staff and doctors”. Breweries are making sanitizer out of the left-over ingredients. We thought we couldn’t live without Baseball, NASCAR, NBA or going to the beach, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Instead, we’re trying to keep those businesses open by ordering online and placing take-out orders.
What the world didn’t count on was America saying “Hey, hold on and watch this.”
Give us a few more weeks (maybe months) and we will be doing much better! And stop listening to the hysterical media!!
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
The U.S. Army does not plan to change the names
of several bases named after Confederate war heroes, despite a broader
effort in some states to remove such tributes.
“We have no plans to rename any street or installation, including those named for Confederate generals,” an Army spokesperson told
Task & Purpose. The service will instead continue with the existing
names of many well known military bases and installations.
“It is important to note that the naming of
installations and streets was done in a spirit of reconciliation, not to
demonstrate support for any particular cause or ideology,” the U.S.
Army spokesperson continued. “The Army has a tradition of naming
installations and streets after historical figures of military
significance, including former Union and Confederate general officers.”
Among the list of Army bases named after
Confederate leaders are: Fort A.P. Hill, Fort Bragg, Fort Benning, Fort
Gordon, Fort Hood, Fort Lee, Fort Pickett, Fort Polk, Fort Rucker and
The question of the services’ continued use of
the controversial names comes shortly after the U.S. Marine Corps
Commandant Gen. David Berger ordered the removal of all Confederate
paraphernalia from Marine bases, effective immediately.
Justice Department Files Amicus Brief Explaining that Harvard’s Race-Based Admissions Process Violates Federal Civil-Rights Law
The Department of Justice yesterday filed an amicus brief in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College
in the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. In its
amicus brief, the United States explains that Harvard’s expansive use of
race in its admissions process violates federal civil-rights law and
Supreme Court precedent.
“Race discrimination hurts people and is never benign,” said
Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the Civil Rights Division.
“Unconstitutionally partitioning Americans into racial and ethnic blocs
harms all involved by fostering stereotypes, bitterness, and division
among the American people. The Department of Justice will continue to
fight against illegal race discrimination.”
As a condition of receiving millions of dollars in taxpayer funding
every year, Harvard expressly agrees to comply with Title VI of the
Civil Rights Act of 1964, a cornerstone civil-rights law that prohibits
discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in
programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. In
2017, the Department opened a Title VI investigation into Harvard’s
admissions process after a complaint was filed by more than 60
Asian-American organizations. That investigation remains underway.
