    Slavery – The Whole Story
    Bill Warner PhD – Published on Jun 11, 2020

    Most people do not know the complete story of slavery. The half story of slavery is the evil white man on a wooden ship on the west coast of Africa. The whole story includes the fact that all of the slaves sent to the Americas were sold by Muslim slave wholesalers. Political Islam has a complete doctrine of slavery.

    I was mentioning to Czarina today, again, about how, when I lived in Florida in the 50s, we’;d have these huge fish runs. In particular the Spanish mackerel and bluefish. When they made their ‘runs’ they’d be so thick that huge waves would come up and they’d be full of fish, they’d crash and fish would be thrown all over.

    Every now and then, if the wave were large enough, you’d see barracudas, sailfish and even sharks hitting the schools, picked up in the waves in accordance with their size. We’d catch them off of the shore in the Intracoastal or just offshore, we’d fill 50# potato sacks full. You could grill them over a palmetto fire and they were super.

    In the 80s in Louisiana we’d go south to the fishing areas, canals the oil companies cut thru the marshes and then blocked off, to fish for redfish (red drum). They were so plentiful that we’d measure our catch in the number of 40-ish quart ice chests we’d filled. Then Paul Prudhomme made blackened redfish popular and in a few short years the Gulf states commercial fleets fished them almost into extinction. They’re well back now but there are commercial and sport size and quantity limitations, I don’t foresee us ever fishing them in those huge numbers again.

      In this video, at about 1:30, there’s a huge school of some sorts. When we went to Destin last year, we were at the pier when the fishing boats full of tourists came in. They had HUGE numbers of all kinds of fish.

        Yeah, and we’ve lived here coming on to 40 years and haven’t been on an offshore fishing trip once. Just live too close to it I guess.

    Mornin’ all. Beautiful morning here. I woke up early because of my leg itching where something bit me yesterday. I wish I had paid more attention to whatever it was because it really looks hot and is different from mosquito bites. I was in Publix and I leaned down and brushed it off, whatever it was, and couldn’t find the bug after that. Weird.

    Hope you are better today, Czarina. 🙂 ❤

      Good morning, aus! Overcast here and 66 degrees plus a 69% humidity. At various times today and through next Tuesday there’s supposed to be rain.

      Beware of crawly and flying bugs…but not flying itself…so take a flight over….

      I love the accompanying music, Hans Zimmer’s “Time” from the film INCEPTION.

      Feeling normal except less stamina, and this damn cough. I’m always getting bitten by something or the other since I spend so much time outside, but I worry most about the brown recluse spider because its bite can lead to very bad outcomes. They hide in shoes, and will live inside your house.

        Well, I was at Publix when it bit me. I could have picked it up in the car or in the store. I don’t know what it was, but the spot is not swollen, dark pink and about 3 inches across. Now this might alarm many, but even mosquito bites cause a lot of redness and swelling, so I don’t get alarmed easily.

    Whatever appeasement is offered, it won’t be enough. Next, someone will dynamite Mount Rushmore. I’m not kidding.

    It won’t happen, but it’s fun to think about.

    Retired generals who denounced Trump could be recalled to active duty and prosecuted, experts say

    The Uniform Code of Military Justice prohibits using “contemptuous words” against the president.

    “Retired officers can’t make contemptuous remarks of the commander-in-chief,” said John Dowd, a former Marine Corps Judge Advocate and former Trump legal advisor. “They’re all subject to recall. They’re subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice until they die.”

    The pertinent law is Title 10 of the U.S. Code, Section 888, the experts said.

    “As part of the UCMJ, governing military law, you cannot use contemptuous words against certain officials, including the president,” one active duty Army Judge Advocate General Corps officer said. “That is a court-martial offense, and yes, you can be recalled to active duty to be court-martialed.”

    The outspoken retired officers know they could be held to account, the JAG officer said.

    “I don’t know who the hell they think they are,” Dowd said. “It’s stunning to me. I guess the law doesn’t apply to them.”

    The retired officers comprise some of the biggest marquee military names in recent times. They include former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis and former Special Operations Command chief Adm. William McRaven.
