PEACE Please

Please, allow me to point out that conservative Republicans branded protesters clashing with police after George Floyd’s death as radical-left thugs. Liberal Democrats blamed far-right fascists. But it turns out that most of the arrests are locals and very few affiliated with an organized group.

I do share with everyone on City Island, A Slice of NYC Paradise, a heartbreaking pain, an outrage, and exasperation at witnessing the impacts of injustice, racism, discrimination, and subconscious biases in our society.

There is a clear distinction between peaceful protesters and violent thugs. Also between peaceful cops and police brutality. According to studies recently released, police violence is a leading cause of death for young men in the United States. Sick and tired protesters continue to express frustration with the pace of policing reforms in USA cities.

When high profile, mature leaders, who've paid their dues to our nation speak up, We The People must listen and pay attention. 

The alarming and continually growing concern has spilled over as conservative as well as liberal presidents, community leaders and decorated heroes speak up and point out the POTUS character flaws, as his self described shield is failing the acid test as he faces multiple threats.

Whenever anyone utilizes technology they must now the risks involved. No form of electronic communication can be considered 100 percent safe from any and all observers. Make sure you have a plan about what you'll do if the wrong person finds out you made contact as a whistleblower.

Do not contact anyone from your work computer or phone. Your bosses can track your use of these devices. The same goes for your personal mobile phone if you've ever installed apps from your employer even if you later uninstalled them.

There are one hundred and fifty-two days until the general election. Don't be distracted by the hot air coming from The White House.

Tuesday's primaries forced many USA citizens to stand on long lines and ignore curfews that have sealed the deal and magnifies a real reason for registering now to vote by mail. Do not listen to loudmouths who say voting by mail is not safe. They do it and so should We The People.  

Prey On The US

Why does POTUS Prey On The US? He had an opportunity to pray for healing America but allowed federal public safety officers to fire tear gas on peaceful protesters. Why the interest so that he could hold a photo opportunity In front of the church, not reading The Holy Bible but using it as a prop? No religious person American allows peaceful protestors to be shot with tear gas so he may grandstand in front of this church holding The Holy Bible.

If he can not or does not have anything constructive to say while he is holding The Holy Bible, he should just open it and learn.
