“We’re in a war…”

We’re in a war…physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. So many lies, so much deceit. We’re not losing though, we’re simply turning a corner and we won’t take it any longer. People and groups across the country recognize the dishonesty coming from the highest levels of the USG and are more than ever taking a stand. Health Freedom, Religious Freedom, Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Choose, etc…we have constitutional and moral rights and we must and will change the direction of the nation back toward the beautiful experiment in democracy called a constitutional republic the Creator and our founders established 🙏🏼🇺🇸

People most afraid of Covid-19 don’t know…

“I often find the people most afraid of COVID-19 do not know the mortality rates.

“The delta variant is even less deadly than previous versions.

“Viruses tend to get less deadly over time and there have already been hundreds of variants of COVID-19 which are often less than 0.3% different from the original.”

Another win that came far too early

I won this Correspondence Chess game (being played with a 5-day time control!) yesterday when my opponent playing White resigned, giving me the win with Black by default.

He still had several days left on his clock, so he wasn’t in any kind of time trouble. And we were only eight moves into our opening which was pretty well balanced at this point. Why he chose to quit remains a mystery. There was still so much chess to be played here.

Our full move record in pgn format is below, and the short game played out visually in a gif file.

  1. e4 a6 2. d4 e6 3. Nf3 h6 4. c4 d6 5. Nc3 Nd7 6. Bd3 d5 7. e5 Bb4 8. O-O Ne7
