I have to do some second hand boasting.

My husband just completed 300 masks. He buys the material (gets a discount from the fabric shop) and a pack of XXX large T-shirts for the lining. He's has it down to 10 in 2 hours.

He takes them to the local medical center, an annex of the local hospital. It has Checkpoint Charlies at every entrance. Anyone who doesn't have one gets one of his. When customers head out, they return them into a container at the checkpoint. They're then washed, autoclaved and back in business.

Just a reminder not all old white guys watch Faux Noose, complain and insult. I am very proud of mine.

Shout it out, Brother.

That last sentence would look good on a T-shirt.

Hand salute for your uncle.

He's in good company. Eisenhower was up front about going to the Point - free college degree.

Wow. Threating every member of the armed forces.

I swear if there were one crap pile left in the space/continuum, Moron would find it and step in it.

This is the Army's headache. The installations of the other branches are either named after a city/town they're near or significant individuals in the history of the branch. No Confederate generals.

So, just to kiss up to a handful of white nationalist bigots, Moron is going to punish a couple of million people who had the bad luck to believe that the government would keep its side of the contract.

Also I'm betting that you asked nine out of ten service members why their patch is named the way it is, "Don't know, don't care."

A gentle and perfect knight

A knight is sworn to valor
His heart knows only virtue
His blade defends the helpless
His might upholds the weak
His word speaks only truth
His wrath undoes the wicked.

What's interesting about CMSAF Wright's speech is ...

he wouldn't have made it unless he had the approval of his superiors.

"It'll have more impact if it comes from you, Chief."
