3. I always wondered about the way the bodies were laid out at the Jim Jones camp.

It looked like it was so quick, that nobody had the chance to do anything else but keel over. Those were not the bodies of people who had more than mere seconds to react. All of them facing down. Weird.

10. And Children Under The Parents

It's why the original count was so grossly low.
The found dozens of children under the dead bodies of their parent(s).

20. That incident made many forget about Leo Ryan being assassinated.

Has Jackie Speier ever written her autobiography? She was shot there, has been raped, and had the courage and fortitude to become a great member of Congress. She may have beat cancer (I think).

She's as brave as Giffords IMO.

21. Jackie Speier is incredibly gutsy. We are so lucky to have her.

No Idea if she's written a book, though.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41574605-undaunted

Undaunted: Surviving Jonestown, Summoning Courage, and Fighting Back
by Jackie Speier

An inspiring and powerful memoir of surviving the Jonestown massacre and becoming a fearless voice against injustice and inequality by California congresswoman Jackie Speier.

Jackie Speier was twenty-eight when she joined Congressman Leo Ryanís delegation to rescue defectors from cult leader Jim Jonesís Peoples Temple in Jonestown, Guyana. Ryan was killed on the airstrip tarmac. Jackie was shot five times at point-blank range. While recovering from what would become one of the most harrowing tragedies in recent history, Jackie had to choose: Would she become a victim or a fighter? The choice to survive against unfathomable odds empowered her with a resolve to become a vocal proponent for human rights.

From the formative nightmare that radically molded her perspective and instincts to the devastating personal and professional challenges that would follow, Undaunted reveals the perseverance of a determined force in American politics. Deeply rooted in Jackieís experiences as a widow, a mother, a congresswoman, and a fighter, hers is a story of true resilience, one that will inspire other women to draw strength from adversity in order to do what is rightóno matter the challenges ahead.

Or at least I have a terrible time trying to explain to non-politics heads.

16. Saw an Old Lady at Grocery Store with KAG Hat on.

No longer wearing white hoods and robes at night, burning a cross.

They wear a stupid red KAG or MAGA hat in plain daylight.

The hypocrisy of her wearing latex gloves during this pandemic and also wearing that hat which represents Donald Trump. The incompetent idiot, who's reckless mismanagement, might put her further at risk of contracting COVID-19.

I wonder what thought's went through her aged mind as a middle-aged African American man, who's Parents and Grandparents fled Jim Crow South during the Great Migration, looked upon the shameful stupidity of following a racist pig.

I wonder how tighter she wrapped herself in that comfort of white privileged parading that hat around a diverse Grocery Store.

November 3, 2020 can't get here quick enough.

The republican leaders are supporting Trump knowing full well that he is stupid, vile, incompetent and unfit. They don't need any koolaid. They are doing it consciously with cold-blooded calculation.
