Will It Ever Stop?
« on: Jun 28, 2020, 11:11:36 AM »
I limit the news to a maximum of twice a day. When I listened to it just now two items caught my ear:


i) Orange County are proposing to rename their airport and remove John Wayne's statue because of comments he made in an interview 50 years ago.


ii) An American University wants to remove references to Woodrow Wilson.


The past is the past and cannot be changed. Nothing changes through airbrushing the past. Different attitudes, different times!

There is a recently retired man around here who is given abuse because he worked for a bank. He can not do anything about that now.

In any case, if there was something immoral in our past it should be remembered, otherwise we are pretending it never happened. This is just as important to the victims of immoral conduct like us, as to the immoral perpetrators.

Why would he get abuse for working in a bank?

Brian worked for an insurance company. He had best keep quiet and say he was a postman! 😁

Check the poster. Ignore it. Maintain your sanity.

I expect Lewis Hamilton will leave Mercedes ASAP as they used 40,000 slaves in WWII. Or don't white slaves count?

Maybe he was a counter behind a counter.

I wish somebody would put that question to him, let's see where his principles are when money is involved.
Opinion. A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

He might even have been counting the accountants' accounts, which would make him an accountant account counter behind a counter.

Apparently Mercedes will be running their cars in black instead of the traditional silver livery to support BLM. Doesn't feel right.
