…One year later, to mark the anniversary of the cowardly decision [to remove a 3′ x 5′ Third National flag], the Virginia Flaggers, with the generous support of Danville area residents, will raise our largest Battle Flag to date THIS SATURDAY, July 23rd on private land adjacent to the 29 Bypass in Danville. It will be the 14th massive roadside Battle Flag raised in Danville in the 12 months since the tiny 3×5 flag was ripped down, and the 27th raised in the Commonwealth since the fall of 2013.
Sky High Poles of Danville installed the 119’ pole this afternoon, which will fly a massive 30’ x 50’ Confederate Battle Flag…
God bless you all.
UK Daily Mail: Elderly priest, 86, is ‘beheaded’ by two ISIS knifemen shouting ‘Daesh’ after they took nuns and worshippers hostage at French church: Police shoot both attackers dead then search for bombs
A senior New York State judge once quipped that “a grand jury would ‘indict a ham sandwich,’ if that’s what you wanted.”
Read this account of the behind-the-scenes action in the police shooting of Tamir Rice, and you will understand how your patriotic activity will be presented to the citizens who supposedly offset prosecutorial power.
Know the District Attorney in your area.
Know the assistant DAs in your area.
Know every damned thing you can learn about them.
You are going to need that information.
Odds are that it is moot, sadly.
From over the transom:
The Alabama Wilderness Medical Association is offering a three-day course in Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) on September 8-10 at Ruffner Mountain in Birmingham. Developed at the University of Utah School of Medicine, the course provides substantial and practical coverage of all major subjects in wilderness/austere/expedition/environmental/field medicine. Beginning with the initial assessment of the patient, we move onto field management of trauma, drowning, lightning strikes, hypothermia, envenomation, and more. Extensive hands-on and simulation components occur each day in order to apply the skills and knowledge discussed in classroom sessions. A full course description, schedule, and registration information is available at AlabamaWMA.org
Only a limited number of spaces remain available, and it’s first-come, first-served until the course is full. All course materials, supper on Thursday, lunches on Friday and Saturday, breakfasts, and coffee are included. The course will go forward, rain or shine.
In order to cover all of this material in three days, participation is limited to those with medical training (EMT, paramedic, RN, PA, MD, med students, etc.). Participants who successfully complete the class (including a written exam and demonstration of hands-on competency) will receive AWLS certification lasting four years. The following professional organizations grant 20.5 hours of continuing education credit (AMA, PRA-approved category 1) for this class: Wilderness Medical Society, American College of Emergency Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Association of Physician Assistants. The Alabama Department of Public Health has approved this class for all state EMS license holders. Other license holders should contact their governing entities regarding credit.

Two rules, at least in my mind:
1) Listening is much more important than talking, especially when “higher” stops completely one echelon above your patrol.
2) Radios can and do get you waxed if used unintelligently.
There is no way out but through.
Note also this piece from Bob Owens:
Close with Banzai:
Remember: diversity is our strength.
In other words, your sex and your race matter more than intellect, accomplishment, or any other metric of objective merit.
The use of the term “objective” itself is a microaggression denying the personal truth belonging to each person and indicative of patriarchal, cisgendered, sexxxxxisss, waaaaacisss badthink.
Enjoy WM’s suggestions, and please send others you find first to comments and then the still-behind firstname.lastname@example.org.
As much as the the Orwell/Huxley omnisurveillance age blows in so many respects, cheap e-books are nonetheless a lovely piece of legitimate progress.
