    lmao 2020 is stupid.

    I remember when satellite TV was a big deal. I remember when if you said far left people would respond "Far left what?"


    You can't really get behind anyone because everyone is an idiot.


    I don't mean to be so obtuse all of the time, however I am completely astounded at the events that have occured since last year. Personally, and in the world.

    I don't see a solution. I don't see things going back to normal. It makes me nauseous. I am getting tired of seeing the same signs of how inevitably fucked it all is. Local representation is the only thing at all personal people can get involved in, and that is even being shut down.

    I am stuck philosophically on how I fit in to the bigger picture in all of this bullshit.

    Dude, I am so apathetic to everything now-a-days. Maybe it is just cynicism that has come with age but I can't get behind anything or anyone anymore. I just want to be left alone to my video games, knitting and books but so many of these fuckers keep trying to take away the things that brought me joy and comfort telling me that "Its problematic" and "Its for your own good". Just leave me alone to my hobbies you little weirdos!

    Jackson and the rest of the US Army continued the march to Mexico City, engaging the Mexicans between them and the enemy capital. Jackson himself would face little direct action until the assault on Chapultepec, the mighty fort anchoring the defense of Mexico City where many future Civil War generals –and the United States Marine Corps- distinguished themselves.

    Magruder’s Battery was attached to Major General Gideon Johnson Pillow’s prong of the assault, where it found itself under heavy fire from Mexican artillery.

    Placed in a causeway and with the enemy artillery well protected by breastworks, the battery started to route in the face of such intense bombardment. Jackson, perennially calm under fire, hauled a small fieldpiece into a new position to try and take out the enemy artillery.

    While enemy guns blasted all around him –one shot even landing between his legs- he endeavored to rally the remains of his battery, but they had already fled. Jackson was given orders to withdraw, but argued that retreating would be more dangerous, and, if given fifty veterans, he could storm the breastworks and silence the defensive artillery.

    With only a sergeant to aid him, Jackson proceeded to return fire on the Mexicans with his lone fieldpiece. Another gun was eventually manhandled into position, and the battery, no doubt inspired by Jackson’s courage and seeming immunity to enemy artillery, rallied.

    In due time the breastworks fell, the castle stormed, and the city taken. For his bravery under fire, General Scott personally praised the young officer, promoting him to the brevet rank of Major for his heroic actions. Jackson, amusedly, seemed not fully aware of the full extent of his actions until long after the city fell.

    While the dust settled, Jackson met a fellow southern officer by the name of Robert E. Lee, and the two would be close associates until Jackson’s death.

    Now we need to remove all the slave owners from the money. Every single time I see George Washington he makes me sick. Mostly because I am reminded of how broke I am.

    And all it took was for a underage black kid to get killed but the "peoples police" and for the "peaceful protestors" to visit the mayors home to make her change her mind. To add more to the trash fire:

    Guys, this all would have worked if we tax Amazon more. By the way, Designated Shtting Street here was responsible to helping start CHAZ in the first place. I wonder who the mayor will throw under the bus soon?
