Scuttlebutt

Rumor has it that there is a military buildup in Japan and other US bases for the coming war/s. What with China in the South China Seas and Russia along the Ukrainian border and Hamas throwing rocks and Afganistan troop withdrawals and India overwhelmed by Covid and …. 

Today’s news reports a buildup of police in our major cities to counteract activists who, maliciously, “peacefully” protest whatever the “woke” cook up.

Why wait until there is a highly publicized and criticized officer-involved event that results in the hasty, emotional creation of a citizen oversight commission? Although Orange County’s history may not demonstrate an overwhelming need, the long-term interests of residents may best be served by independent monitoring prior to such an event. 

But this is just scuttlebutt.
