Don't Want Police Shootings?

By Daddy

Las Vegas — If we don't want the police to shoot people in the back then take their guns away from them. Have them be locked away in gun safes in the trunks of their cars. "In some countries including Iceland, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland excepted), Maldives, the police do not carry firearms unless the situation is expected to merit it" — Wikipedia. In those countries fatal shootings by police are a rarity.

Nevada is an "Open Carry" state, it perfectly legal for me to strap on a holster, put my weapon in the holster, and go to the store. In fact the only time it was brought up was when a man asked: "Is that a Baby Eagle?" of which I have a fairly rare early version. It turns out he was an off duty police officer and he wanted to take a look at my baby discretely. I accommodated the officer. However, normally when you draw a handgun is when things get a little more dicey. There are three situations where I can lawfully use that weapon. First, In my self-defense; Second, To defend my property; and Third, To defend other people.

I believe that police should be judged by the same standards all other citizens are judged by. Shooting an unarmed person in the back seven times is not justifiable. The "Lawful but Awful" concept needs to be retired; anytime a weapon is drawn and used it should be looked at carefully and if need be prosecuted.

On the way to the wound doctor who should cross my path from right to left but The US Air force Thunderbirds. They were flying close enough to the ground in the their famous "Diamond" formation that I could see the distinctive Red, White, & Blue colors and the four streams of white smoke trailing them. The wound doctor is happy with progress and maybe just maybe next week will discharge me.

I've finished 90% of the user interface for my program. As an old programmer adage goes: "It takes 90% of the time to finish 90% of the project; It takes another 90% of the time to finish the last 10%." The biggest problem is unlearning the stuff that I learned 30 years ago and going with the flow on how it's done now. With a little bit of knowledge I messed up both the app and Xcode itself. But that turned out to be a good thing. Xcode 12 Beta 6 has just been released and I got to take an enforced break while I loaded it.

Just as I thought I had everything caught up I found out that the 2nd half of the car insurance is due on the 7th. I'll need to go "All In" to get past that hurdle. To all those that have donated, Thank you! Any help is appreciated. Here's a link to the How to Donate Page

This Video Breaks Down Trump's Attacks on the LGBTQ+ Rights

By Donald Padgett

Cyberspace — GLAAD has released a much-needed video counterpoint to last night’s speech at the Republican National Convention from the former Acting Director of the United States National Intelligence. Richard Grenell delivered a speech at the event that critics say was filled with inaccuracies and downright falsehoods, including the assertion that Trump is “the strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White House," an assertion that has no grounding in reality.

By Sam Manzella

Anchorage — his Wednesday, August 26, the city assembly voted 9-2 to ban so-called “conversion therapy” for minors, Anchorage Daily News reports.
