Cockroaches are a virulent pest which have been around since the days of Dinosaurs and the Jurassic Period. They are actually quite an interesting creature and not all of them are actually pests. See the related articles … such as Terminex facts. In reading the aforementioned pages, you will learn that a cockroach can travel 50 times its body length making it faster than a Cheetah. These little boogers can move man. Just think of turning on the kitchen light as you creep in to grab that little midnight snack of leftover cake without waking the entire household. You tip toe in carefully taking light steps until you reach the light switch, you flip the switch as you anticipate with great joy how wonderful that morsel of cake is going to be as it passes your lips and enters your mouth exploding with sugary joy. As the light brightens the kitchen and the dark passes away, you see a cockroach scurry past your feet. You think to yourself, wow, this guy can move as it darts in and out and swerves to either side before vanishing from sight under the refrigerator scampering off to its household of relatives and friends waiting for its return with news of feasts to be had outside of their den. Ahh, such is the life of the elusive cockroach.
So, although enlightening and fascinating beyond comprehension you might think, what in the world does it actually have to do with anything that could possible be conceived of as being relevant today? Well, as your Scribe watches with rapt attention the goings on of the day, it occurs that the behavior and actions of the cockroach are very similar to those of the thugs and rioters wreaking havoc across America as they set fires, destroy property, and assault those who disagree with their “Cause of the Minute”. They can amass quickly in frightening numbers, they can cause fear and panic in those who observe them, and they can vanish quickly into surrounding areas. Yep, that’s a lot like what cockroaches do.
What we are witnessing in American cities throughout America is nothing short of heart wrenchingly disgusting. Under the guise of peaceful protests, these well organized, well funded, Anarcho Terrorists are quite literally out of control and much like a hurricane or tornado, they leave a wake of destruction and chaos in their wake. Propelled by their hatred, their evil intentions are to burn down anything and everything in their path to accomplish their very amorphous goals. Incapable of intelligently defending their positions or the actions that they take and encourage, these cowardly thugs can only strike during periods of darkness. During the daylight hours there might be peaceful gatherings including some people who are actually protesting what they deem to be some activity or wrong doing which needs discussion and possible reform. After dark though, it is an entirely different matter altogether.
The decision of the Grand Jury who were deliberating the actions of Police Officers in the case involving the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, anticipation of potential rioting prompted business owners and Officials to begin boarding up their places of business along with the Federal and Local Courthouses which would certainly be targeted. As the findings of the Grand Jury became apparent, fear crept in as the verdict would certainly not be to the liking of the Mob. Although the procedure and process was thorough and investigated properly and thoroughly, the end result and determination that what the mob wanted to hear was not to be realized, Louisville, Kentucky was set on edge in anticipation of coming terror.
This struck very close to home for me personally as I was raised and spent the majority of my life there in Louisville (Pronounced “Lou a vull” by residents). Not only was I raised there but I was also a Law Enforcement Officer serving my community. Although I no longer reside in the Bluegrass state, my love and heart still remain in the Derby City with all of its beauty and steeped in history and culture. Seeing the rioting taking place before my eyes as I think back to my days in uniform, brought anguish and anger to my mind. Learning that two Officers were shot led to further sorrow and profound sadness that such activity is allowed to play out in the streets of an American city to begin with. Who is to blame and why are they not held accountable for the death and destruction happening right before our very eyes? Like other cities experiencing violence and destruction at the hands of out of control, radical Leftists under the banner of BLM, Antifa, and other terrorist organizations of the Left, Louisville and Kentucky are under Democrat control.
Are you beginning to see a common thread here? Yep, this kind of violence and destruction is only happening in Democrat led cities and states across America. Why are they not doing something to stop it, you might ask? Where is the leadership and strong, decisive response? What consequences do the rioters face? These and many other questions like these are exactly what should be in the forefront of everyone’s mind as the national election approaches this coming November. So, if democrats are doing nothing to stop the violence and chaos, does that mean that in some way they actually support it? Hmm, it would certainly seem so. What does it all mean then? Well, quite simply stated, a common opinion is that we will either have America after the election, or maybe not. You will decide very soon.
The bottom line is this, anytime that the Left does not get the answer they want, or the verdict they want, or simply what they want, period, are we to see them scurrying to the streets like cockroaches to begin destroying everything in sight? Well, probably so if we continue on a path of lawlessness at the hands of weak and cowardly leaders who are paralyzed with fear and will bow to the will of the Mob and simply do their bidding. Wake up America!
