“People live one generation, your life lives for generations after,
your name lives on forever.”
– Yakuza tattoo

3:05am: So, we are still awake. We have been watching YouTube vids.
Maybe watching some TV too. It’s Friday morning now.
We are tired, so might be time for bed.

8:20am: We finally went to bed around 5:00am. And we didn’t sleep well.
We just woke up and we’re going back to bed soon….
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1
We watched the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
OMG IT WAS SO BORING. No audience in the stadium. SO BORING!
Jazzy piano instrumental. 50 Pictographs and an unsteady-cam….
Kabuki theatre performance….REALLY? And there were fireworks too.
GAVE US A HEADACHE IMMEDIATELY. Shaky camera and jump cut moves.
NBC just sucked this morning. And the NBC hosts suck too.

NOTE: If there is a Mike Lindell MyPillow commercial on during a show….
we will CHANGE THE CHANNEL. We are done watching your program.

10:05am: WE MUST MOTIVATE! We tried to go back to bed, but no luck.
We’ve spent the last 2 hours doing nothing. And we’re watching “Top Chef”.
And it’s making us hungry for breakfast.

11:30am: We drank another iced espresso.
We reheated and ate three slices of leftover pizza for brunch.
We drank a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice.
217540168_4965316633494863_667563989275081013_n

12:40pm: We need to run errands. MUST GET DRESSED.

5:10pm: Back in our “lounge wear” and barefoot at home.
It was FUCKING HOT TODAY. Really HOT out.
Recapping the afternoon. We got dressed and went out at 2:00pm.
We ran errands. We went to the bank. We skipped the Post Office.
We came home. We took the dogs outside.

What’s cooking?
218640303_4965605750132618_1756670032467429122_n

We ventured into GW today and found a 50th anniversary copy
in almost new and unused condition for $2.25. Score.
(it was originally $2.99, but it was 25% off this week)
Paid cash. Left them the penny. No receipt required.

6:00pm: We almost fell asleep. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. The dogs barked. The dogs went outside.
We just ordered Thai food delivery for dinner…. estimated 45 mins.

The food was delivered on time. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Thai food! BBQ chicken combo w/pad Thai noodles & vegetables,
BBQ rib combo w/fried rice & salad, and chicken satay w/peanut sauce
NOTE: We’re good customers, so they sent us some FREE egg rolls too.

Recapping Friday night. We ate and fell asleep. We woke up around 10:00pm and spent the night watching TV and surfing the interweb. We also worked on Blog Posts and played with the dogs. We fell asleep sometime before dawn.

219219489_10157749891546017_6532702888496985929_n

8:00am: One more Saturday. We woke up before 6:00am.
We just published last week’s Blog Post (our previous Blog Post)
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate the leftover salad from last night with a little ranch dressing.

And then we just finished binge-watching the “Top Chef” finale
(Portland season 18) and the “Last Chance Kitchen” final episodes.
Such a great show and concept. And after 18 seasons it’s still great.
The chefs (the competitors, hosts, and the guest judges) are CHARACTERS!
The story line, editing, emotion, and the format make for exciting episodes.
SUCH AMAZING FOOD! Creative cooking ideas! Always makes us hungry.
And the winner is…. no, we won’t spoil it.

9:00am: We drank another cup of espresso.

Shit in the front hall
One more unsolved mystery
Which dog did the deed?

11:30am: FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. Just a little more drama.
With pet ownership comes great responsibility.
AND THAT’S ALL WE ARE GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT TODAY.

Dog Days of Summer in Los Angeles

We were invited to dinner tonight. At a public restaurant in a busy part of town.
AND WE SAID “NO THANK YOU” and explained why…. CORONAVIRUS.
COVID-19 Delta Variant. “Breakthrough” virus. Public spaces. Public Restaurant.
Also said they shouldn’t be going out in public, and their kids shouldn’t too.
THERE IS ALREADY A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. Not going to go there.
We ran errands yesterday and encountered people not wearing masks,
even though the “mask mandate” is back in effect for Los Angeles. SCARY.
AND SO MANY UNVACCINATED PEOPLE. That anxiety about strangers is back.

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT.
WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK!

DO YOU TRUST THE GOVERNMENT? WHO DO YOU TRUST?
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH CONFLICTING INFORMATION?
ARE YOU FULLY VACCINATED? (If not, WTF aren’t you fully vaccinated?)
After 16 months in isolation, we really want to get out!
We want to travel. We want to party. We want to hang out with out friends.
We are fully vaccinated. And we almost felt safe for a couple weeks….
AND NOW WE DON’T FEEL SAFE
and WE DON’T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT.

222781919_10223241787126780_17337310440607725_n

We continue to advise our readers to limit their exposure.
STAY THE FUCK HOME! WEAR A FUCKING MASK!
DO NOT TRAVEL! ZERO CONTACT! SOCIAL DISTANCE!
DO NOT EAT, DRINK, OR SOCIALIZE WITH STRANGERS!
(you do not know who is and who isn’t vaccinated or infected)

2:45pm: We ate a slice of cold leftover pizza and reheated a leftover egg roll.
We took a nap. We woke up and made an iced espresso.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:0pm: Recapping Saturday afternoon, evening and night now.
We hung with the dogs all day. We watched the Olympics.
We watched YouTube vids and TV too. We wasted another Saturday.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We ate four slices of leftover pizza for dinner and drank another iced espresso.
Then we fell asleep. And we just woke up again. The dogs went outside again.

11:40pm: The neighbors are having a noisy backyard party again.
So, we went outside and yelled at them. And then we went dark.

And now let’s do Tuesday in the next Blog Post.


Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

168090583_2801666060144262_5641567001358441992_n

COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
611000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
64265+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
53235+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of today
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

NOTE: THERE IS ANOTHER REPORT THAT COVID-19 NUMBERS
IN THE US MAY HAVE BEEN UNDER-REPORTED BY AS MUCH AS 60%!
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
reports the number of COVID-19 DEATHS in the US at more than 900000
(that’s 57% higher than the official data according to their analysis)

WARNING! The Delta Variant is spreading!
It was previously known as the “Indian variant”
First detected in India last October and now spreading in more than 40 countries!

THE UNITED STATES WILL CONTINUE THE CURRENT TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS.
The CDC now advises Americans against travel to the United Kingdom!
The Department of Veterans Affairs will require healthcare workers to get COVID-19 vaccines.

Monday, July 19, 2021 – It’s the 200th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

On this day in AD 64, The Great Fire of Rome begins
and it rages on for six days, and destroys half of the city.

On this day in 1943, during World War II,
Rome was bombed by 500 Allied Aircraft.

Today is the 87th Anniversary of The Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles.
Located at Fairfax and 3rd in Hollywood/West Hollywood.

1:20am: We finally got hungry enough to make some food at 1:00am.
On The Menu: BBQ steak (rib-eye) & jack cheese w/sautéed onions
on a toasted sesame bagel with a dill pickle
215880535_4951030291590164_2092221714362353656_n

2:15am: So, we’ve been bouncing back and forth between TV and the interweb.
Podcasts, YouTube, “Dune”, documentaries, news, “Two and a Half Men”, etc.
And we binge-watched the first season of “The Mandalorian” on Thursday.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:15am: We woke up around 6:30am. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now we’re awake and in the Home Office. Fuckin’ Monday morning.
Read our previous Blog Post “A Case of the Mondays?”

9:10am: We took the dogs outside again.
We drank another iced espresso.
We ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.

12:20pm: We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. We got the mail.
We put more water in the swimming pool…. but there might be a leak.
That’s a big problem if the pool is leaking! And it’s also really HOT outside.
!HACE MUCHO CALOR!
The housekeeper is here cleaning. The dogs are in the bedroom.
And we have local errands to run that we should have finished an hour ago.
Fuckin’ Monday.

208805362_1576678796010034_8356502406251992041_n

3:40pm: Well, after spending a HOT time outside, we got a case of the “fuckits”.
And we said “FUCK IT” and then we got undressed and took a nap.
No errands today. The housekeeper finished and left. We slept for a little bit.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. Now chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And we’ll do those errands tomorrow. Maybe.

There’s a brush fire burning in Flores Canyon in Topanga near Malibu….
(and at 6:30pm it’s pretty much contained)

There was a pursuit! First he’s going to rob someone with a machete,
then he’s going run from the police, hit a couple spike strips, still try to get away,
and then smoke a cigarette while the LAPD waits to arrest him.
Surrender when you feel like it. Suspect in custody.

6:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We prepped their supper.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
It’s still really HOT out. We drank another iced espresso.

We thought it was chicken, but it was beef? and mushrooms. BLEH.
218937533_4956139147745945_5069727481076286309_n

10:30pm: Fleas! And now we have fleas. The little girl just got a flea bath.
She went on vacation and came back with fleas….  we don’t have words.
Can’t deal with biting insects. And can’t deal with the other dogs right now.

We ate that crappy meat pie for dinner.
And then we got hungry after midnight for some good food.
So, we banged out some real dinner at 1:00am.

On the Menu: Steak soft taco with salsa verde

We woke up early. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And the dogs have fleas. We watched the launch on TV this morning.

6:35am: Blue Origin “First Human Flight” (civilian space flight)
Amazon Billionaire Jeff Bezos and 3 other humans went for a ride.
A REALLY EXPENSIVE RIDE. 66 miles high, under 11 minutes.
What was the purpose? Why? And seriously, they didn’t go to space.
They went to an imagined distance that we call “space”. And they didn’t die.
220073538_10215915990207575_1351813359309672544_n
And Sir Richard Branson with “Virgin Galactic” shot his wad last week.

NOTE: When Bezos did land, the crowd around the ‘capsule’ was incredibly white.
White guys wearing cowboy hats and popping bottles of champagne in the dirt,
the only people of color we saw were the media people covering the event.

“Jeff Bezos’ recreational space trip cost $2,540,000 per minute,
and we’re still arguing about whether the billionaires need to be taxed.”
– Robert Reich

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! And wear it all the time.
The “rules” for mask wearing are ridiculous! On here, off there….
Indoors. Outdoors? WHO IS SAFE? Where are you safe?
99.5% of current COVID-19 DEATHS are unvaccinated people.
Too many people are still not fully vaccinated.
The Delta Variant is spreading rapidly. Now over 80% of cases.

7:30am: We are in a weird space this morning.
8:00am: We just washed the other little girl. She got a nice flea bath.
And we are also doing a load of laundry with all the cage bedding.

8:40am: Watched the Jeff and Mark Bezos interview with Anderson Cooper earlier.
Now watching the exact same interview with Michael Strahan EXACTLY THE SAME!
SAME QUESTIONS. SAME ANSWERS. 
Total Circle Jerk.

9:30am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re all in the Home Office.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

4:15pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We played with them and had them in the Home Office. They’re all good today.
It’s HOT. We wasted another day. How is it after 4:00pm already?
We made/ate some lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken and cheese street tacos on corn tortillas
with salsa verde and guacamole and an iced espresso to drink.
217573146_4956137814412745_2533019810220447312_n

7:50pm: Okay, here’s the Tuesday update.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We surfed the interweb and fell asleep for a little bit.
JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ. We woke up around 11:00pm.
We made and ate dinner after midnight….sometime around 1:00am.
On The Menu: Bone-in rib-eye steak with sauteed onions, steamed broccoli,
and shoestring potatoes, with cran-raspberry-orange juice

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.


Wednesday, July 21, 2021

5:30am: We fell asleep for a little bit and woke up around 4:30am.
We started binge-watching “The Mandalorian” season 2.
6:45am: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

7:35am: We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

219290875_10222999720813987_6786578080903487255_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:20am: We went back to bed. We woke up.
And there’s a pursuit on right now!
Burglary suspect driving a BMW around Upland, California.
He parked and bailed into a backyard under some trees.
Now he’s surrounded and hiding…. We made an iced espresso.
212089828_4958437664182760_4018819267505602672_n
11:20am: Well, everyone cut away from the yard to yard search.
So, we may or may not hear what happened. And that sucks.
When the media cuts away and then it’s over before it’s over.
The helicopters run out of gas, and there’s no backup to cover.
We are left wondering and fully unsatisfied without a conclusion.
So, now, on with our day. UPDATE: Suspect in custody.

Harvey Weinstein is back in Los Angeles to face more charges here.
RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT. Harvey raped and got away with it for years.
He was already convicted in New York and will die in prison,
and his lawyers just pleaded “Not guilty” in Downtown LA…. SCUMBAG.

There’s MASSIVE FLOODING in Germany and in China! Climate change is real.
Wildfires are burning throughout the western United States.
Northern California and Oregon are ON FIRE again.
DROUGHT and BURN CONDITIONS are the worst they’ve ever been.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: We took a nap. We woke up and took a nap. We ate half a dill pickle.
And the gardener came. (leaf blower) We woke up. We made an iced espresso.

ANOTHER PURSUIT!
Chattering like hens, speculating, talking shit about stuff they don’t know about,
totally irresponsible journalism! JUST REPORT THE FACTS AND DON’T GUESS!

Got off the 110 in Pasadena, the Pasadena PD tried a PIT Maneuver and popped the rear tire.
The guy tried to get away, got back on the freeway, tire gave out, slow speed pursuit, and then the gut hit two freeway signs and then a highway divider. Stopped. Trapped. And he quickly surrendered. Suspect in custody.
Screen Shot 2021-07-21 at 16.04.20

4:30pm: “You are the father.” Maury never gets old…. really?
Switch to the local news. It’s HOT. And it might rain on Monday.

5:20pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We took a nice hot shower. We had a pizza delivered.
We did a load of laundry. We did a little organizing.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

We got woken up by the trash truck out front and the little dog in the bed.
We took the dog outside. We went into the kitchen. We took the dog outside.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

We meant to do the errands we didn’t do on Monday, then Tuesday….
but we got a case of the “fuckits” and didn’t do anything again today.
We joined the club for a late lunch. Then we fell asleep around 5:30pm.
We just woke up and made an iced espresso.

E4m95x6XMAIkY_0
John McAfee RIP…. Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.
McAfee “committed suicide” in a Spanish prison? REALLY?
Is it a conspiracy theory if the victim predicts his own death?
NOTE: It already appears that the mainstream media is just going to bury the story.
DO YOU TRUST THE US GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?

Was he an “Enemy of the State” or did he just know too much about certain people?
And what about Jeffrey Epstein? And the Deutsche Bank Banker? Suicides? Really?


Friday, June 25, 2021 – It’s the Last Friday of the Month!

It’s Anthony Bourdain Day! Today would have been his 65th birthday. The celebrity chef, author, world traveler, and TV personality killed himself on June 8, 2018.
172851611_10164828830585104_5054120128163087325_n

On this day in 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer FAILED.
The 7th United States Cavalry was defeated by Sioux and Cheyenne Warriors at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in the Montana Territory (aka “Custer’s Last Stand”).
There were 268 dead and 55 severely wounded U.S. soldiers (and others) when the battle was over.

4:55am: It’s Friday morning! Have a nice day.
smiley 11
It’s the weekend.
Not that anything is any different from the rest of the week.
It’s going to be HOT here, maybe 100 degrees on Sunday.

7:35am: And we took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Remember that cow that went missing after they escaped from the slaughterhouse?
They found it yesterday morning in Whittier Narrows park.
OKAY, WTF? Diane Warren (Hollywood Elite) is going to pay to send it to a sanctuary.
And a bunch of a**holes are now protesting outside the meatpacking plant,
because they want the other 38 cows to be “pardoned” instead of becoming steaks.
Seriously, fuciking cows and people protesting meat are big news in Los Angeles……..
And MORE Britney Spears court news…

RECORD HEAT! EXTEME DROUGHT! “We’re having a heat wave.”
203450680_518254295985805_4726508051457648186_n
Be glad you’re not in southern Oregon or the Pacific Northwest this week!
But seriously, it’s going to be dangerously HOY in a lot of places. so STAY COOL!
Take care of your family, friends, and pets. Young and elderly people are most at risk.

Tokyo 2020 2021 update.
ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1
The XXXII Olympiad (Summer Olympic Games)

A poll in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper showed
80% of the population want the Olympics cancelled or postponed.
And the newspaper also wants the IOC and the organizers to cancel the games.
Japanese Emperor Naruhito also thinks it’s a bad idea.

12:30pm: We took the dog outside. We had to do some grooming too.
We played with the dog. We loved the dog. We love the little boy.
Now he’s napping next to us in the Home Office.

NOTE: We got dressed and drove to the restaurant.
We talked to the staff (our friends) at the restaurant and drove home.
We ate dinner while watching LIVE MUSIC on the desktop.

There was a pursuit that ended when the guy hit the barrier between the carpool lane and the freeway head-on at high speed. He destroyed the truck in a spectacular wreck, spun out, rolled it, and landed in the carpool lanes. Then he crawled out of the wreckage (unhurt) and surrendered to the Highway Patrol. Yeah Saturday Night!

Summer 2021 in Northern Hemisphere began on Sunday, June 20.,
and runs from the June Solstice to the Vernal (Fall) Equinox on September 22.
June, July, and August (and now September) are the HOT months of the year.
The days are longer and the nights are shorter (and warmer).

Monday, June 21, 2021 – It’s SUMMERTIME!
“When all else fails, take a vacation.” – Betty Williams

2:30am: Monday! We just woke up from a short nap….

7:25am: We woke up about an hour ago. We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside, we fed the dogs, and we took the dogs outside again.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Now we are starting our day in the Home Office.

11:30am: We went back to bed, woke up and took the dogs outside.
We ate a cold slice of leftover pizza. Then we went back to bed.
We just woke up and got the mail. Feeling’ “dazed and confused” for a bit.

2:35pm: We drank an iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.
It’s a beautiful, sunny, HOT, and very bright day.
And now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again.

3:25pm: We just took the dogs outside again.

Screen Shot 2021-06-22 at 20.59.12

2:55am Tuesday: Recapping Monday evening and night.
There was a long pursuit and it ended in a standoff. in Burbank.
AUDI builds a great car if you want to run from the cops.
Screen Shot 2021-06-21 at 20.35.37

The SWAT team was called and they gassed the guy out of the car and into custody.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

We finally made some food. We were thinking tacos, but we made a burrito.
On The Menu: Tri-tip steak burrito with fresh guacamole and salsa verde
and a Jumex mango nectar to drink
: 202669256_4871321342894393_930636220028544226_n

And we fell asleep with the dogs and woke up a little before 3:00am on Tuesday.
We took the dogs outside and then put them back to bed in the bedroom.

you can reach right up and touch the sky.” – Mungo Jerry

“Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.” – William Shakespeare

3:10am: We’re awake again.

7:00am: And we are awake again. We were up for a couple hours in-between.
Okay then, GOOD MORNING. It’s f*ckin’ Tuesday. DO NOT TRAVELTUESDAY!
We haven’t had our coffee yet and we don’t feel like we slept.

“A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it.” – Robert Orben

Did everyone go to Las Vegas this weekend? No, okey where did you go?
TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRAVELING. And THERE IS NO LONGER ANY TESTING!
Mask are still required in when traveling, but not required at the destination? WTF?
THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED!
The CoronaVirus COVID-19 Delta Variant is becoming the dominant virus strain…..
and it’s more contagious and deadly. DO NOT RELY ON THE “HONOR SYSTEM”
(and they aren’t even talking about the new virus strain from Vietnam yet)

Screen Shot 2021-05-08 at 22.10.08

8:25am: We still haven’t had coffee. And we didn’t eat yet.
We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We had the dogs in the Home Office. We took the dogs outside.
Now they’re in the bedroom. And Choreboy is here to do some stuff.

11:45am: Well Choreboy did.a little vacuuming…. and not much more.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We got the mail. We took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day.
And now we’re back in the Home Office.

1:35pm: We took a short (unintended) nap with the dogs.

3:20pm: So, we are still chilling’ in the Home Office with the dogs.
And they are just sleeping.
We ate some peanut M&Ms, but now it’s time for lunch.

4:10pm:
On The Mneu: Leftover pizza and an iced espresso for lunch
187558563_4778113578881837_4965582852574762591_n

6:40pm:
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Recapping Tuesday night: nothing happened. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.

We binge-watched “Sons of Sam” on Netflix, about “the .44 Caliber Killer” David Berkowitz
and the failure of the NYPD to properly investigate the murders after he was caught.
It was interesting, but you have to be a True Crime fan to really enjoy it, we think.

And we’re not going to Burning Man (or That Other Thing in the Desert) this year.
FREE BURN? No, a lot of people on The Playa…. without structure. TOO MUCH CHAOS.
And probably too many people – now that the pandemic is no longer an issue.
FUCK YOUR PRETEND BURN! It will be better next year. Or two years ago….

Forty cows escaped yesterday from a slaughterhouse/meat packing plant

And there were NO MASKS and NO SOCIAL DISTANCING!
The COVID-19 is apparently over if thousands of people can party without worry….

Seriously, does anyone else think we are STUPID?
We mean humans as a species are F*CKING STUPID..
Are we going to just forget the last SIXTEEN MONTHS OF FORCED SELF-ISOLATION?

Today is the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in China!

Today is the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in China!

The Tiananmen Square protests in spring of 1989 by the “89 Democracy Movement” were student demonstrations against the government with popular support from city residents in Beijing, China.

NOTE: This Blog will not be available in China due to Government Censorship!

When they want to sell you a tour to China, they’ll show you pictures of the Great Wall, the Yangtze River, Panda Bears, The Three Gorges Dam and of course, the Forbidden City.

They want you to remember the Beijing Olympics in 2008:

The Bird's Nest - Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony

The Bird’s Nest – 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony

The 2008 Beijing Games were the most watched Olympics in history, attracting 4.7 billion viewers worldwide and earning entry into the Guinness World Records.

I remember:

The Bird's Nest - Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony

Thousands of Drummers in The Bird’s Nest – Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony

If you visit Tiananmen Square today, you would never know what happened there twenty five years ago……

Tiananmen Square

Tiananmen Square – Beijing, China

In spring of 1989, student demonstrators occupied Tiananmen Square for seven weeks. The protest was ended when hardline leaders declared martial law on May 20 and ordered the military to enforce martial law and mobilize as many as 300,000 troops in the capital. The crackdown that occurred on June 3 & 4 became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, and is commonly known as the June Fourth Incident in China.

Tiananmen Square

“Tank  Man” v. Chinese Military – Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China – June 4th 1989

Chinese troops with assault rifles and tanks inflicted casualties on unarmed civilians trying to block the military’s advance. The image of one unidentified unarmed man standing immobile in the square facing down a column of tanks speaks a thousand words. Moments later the tanks would crush and kill him.

Tiananmen Square

“Tank Man” v. Chinese Military – Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China – June 4th 1989

The Chinese government condemned the protest as a “counter-revolutionary riot”, and has prohibited all forms of discussion of the protest or remembrance of the Massacre. Any and all references to the events have been censored from state media, the internet, schools, universities and modern history.

Tiananmen Square censorship mocked by "The Simpsons"

To date, many aspects of the events remain unknown or unconfirmed because of Chinese censorship. Estimates of the death toll range from a few hundred to thousands of people.

NOTE: THE NEXT IMAGE IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. (and it’s the hard truth)
