Lightning strikes George Floyd memorial
mural, collapses its brick wall;
hilarity ensues

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 7/14/2021 3:06:52 AM

For those who see the Hand of God in extraordinary natural phenomena, a lightning strike in Toledo, Ohio is being seen as divine retribution. Others call it karma. Witnesses reported that lightning struck a George Floyd memorial mural, not only burning the artistic expression, but collapsing the brick wall on which it was painted. (snip) plenty of people are laughing at the symbolism, while others piously bemoan their sentiments and/or denounce them, as racists. There are plenty of people calling it an act of God or divine retribution for idolizing a career criminal and drug addict. My favorites? "White lightning, I presume....."

There is a story about St John (the guy who wrote the Gospel). He was at a public bath and suddenly ran outside. Someone asked him why he exited so quickly. He remarked that a heretic had just entered the bulding and he (John) did not want to be struck by lightning.

And they say God has no sense of humor! Even the great novel "Name of the Rose" centers around the theme that it is a sin to believe that Jesus ever laughed because He had to be taken so seriously --- but this event is actually very funny. Note that the mural is quite large and about 100 feet long, yet only the section showing Floyd's ugly mug was destroyed. This is what happens when society tries to take a criminal and make him a saint with no proof of his contrition. It's good to see many of the other "monuments" around the country for Floyd --- who might have lived if he obeyed the cops and went quietly --- are being defaced, painted over and/or torn down.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is neither naïve nor stupid. So why did he invite United Nations officials to investigate systemic racism in the United States?

House Democrats are trying to use a massive climate and infrastructure bill to change how Americans get around — by breaking states’ decades-old fondness for building highways. Legislation the House passed this month is the biggest advance yet in Democrats' efforts to bake climate policies into transportation, addressing the largest single contributor to the United States’ greenhouse gas output. It would also represent an historic shift away from the roads-first approach to federal transportation spending that has reigned since Dwight Eisenhower created the Interstate Highway System. But the bill is riling up opposition from two potential allies of the Democrats'

Millions of drivers in London are facing lower speed limits after more than half of the roads in the capital's built-up areas were reduced to 20mph. More than 50 per cent of the capital's roads are now restricted to 20mph and a third of local authorities have also rolled out the measures to stop motorists exceeding the speed limit. The move comes after the Welsh government announced that it would be trialling eight pilot schemes in built-up areas with a 20mph limit before adopting the new speed limit measure by 2023. Calls are now being made to extend the 20mph speed limit across the country
