We ditched the car when we arrived in Granada. We had no need for it there, and then, we took the bus from Granada to Nerja. Jackie loves her beaches, and this is an “old school” beach community. We stayed in a modern building, but most of the town looked like a Greek Island village. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor with a balcony view of the beach. The seafood here was amazing. Above the town was a cave in which there was evidence of prehistoric human habitation.

Granada Pan Fried Fish

By Glenn

European supermarkets have more fresh fish than American supermarkets. The challenge is cooking in a kitchen with only a limited stove top. One trick is to precook the onions in the microwave. It speeds up the process.

Pescador is one of my favorite wines. It is fresh and crisp with a few bubbles.

Too often I hear “I never learned this” or “I never learned that in a history class.” First, people in general don’t want to hear the tales of Kings, Conquerors, Psychopaths from their own history. They prefer a “cleaned up” version. In the case of the United States, most prefer the Whitewashed version. Unfortunately, that version leaves out the role White Supremacy played in American History.

Recently, the HBO series The Watchmen brought to America’s attention the 1921 Tulsa Massacre. Sadly, there were many more White Supremacists Massacres. Here are a few.

Great Hanging at Gainesville 1862

New Orleans Massacre 1866

Colfax (LA) Massacre 1873

Thibodaux (LA) Massacre 1887

Springfield (IL) Massacre 1908

Elaine (AK) Massacre 1919

Tulsa (OK) Massacre 1921

Rosewood (FL) Massacre 1923

Sherman (TX) Massacre 1930

Donald Ignored His Right to Remain Silent

By Glenn

Donald’s own words reveal he used public funds for private gain.

Corruption = Biden

Sept. 22 “We had a great conversation. The conversation I had was largely congratulatory. It was largely corruption — all of the corruption taking place. It was largely the fact that we don’t want our people, like Vice President Biden and his son, creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine. And Ukraine — Ukraine has got a lot of problems,”

No tax dollars without investigation of Bidens.

“We’re looking for corruption, there’s tremendous corruption, and why should we be giving hundreds of millions of dollars to countries where there’s this kind of corruption?”

quid pro quo
/ˌkwid ˌprō ˈkwō/
a favor or advantage granted or expected in return for something.

Quid

ZELENSKY: I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We. are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps. Specifically, we are almost. ready to buy more Javelins from the United· States for defense purposes.

Quo

TRUMP: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it.

1) Investigate Right Wing Conspiracy about Democrats
2) Investigate Right Wing Conspiracy against Joe Biden

So let’s recap Donald’s own words. Donald asked for a favor before he released military aid to defend against the Russians. That favor involved an investigation into Biden which would make headlines in the Presidential race
