Barry and Lisa attend wake for her cousin Michael, who died right before retiring at the age of 57. We learn about his life of redemption and his commitment to giving back. We share Lisa’s memorialization of him, which leads us to the often asked question: Why do good people often die so young? How can life, God, be so unfair? Current Events: The war on free speech runs deep. Barry gets censored on Quora again answering the question, “Are there any black conservatives out there who aren’t sellouts?” Merle discusses how covid masks are infringing on our freedoms and development of children – as California ultra-strict mandates affect all interactions outside as well as inside and people are jumping on shaming others. The observance of labeling people “Science Denyer“. Yet another label to apply to people that have an opposing view on global warming or covid-19. The election: 6 weeks from now, will we see even more violence?

O5O 2.19: A week of social turmoil
Barry Edwards and Merle Garrison: discussing bartering work with clients, but mostly, discussing the busy week of news and the social and political unrest of this time. More riots, intimidation and violence by people purporting to stand against violence Kenosha, Wisconsin erupting in riots – more violence protesting violence. The media’s role in conflating the issues and promoting divisiveness. White diners in Washington DC intimidated by another mob – of mostly white people – to show compliance with the Black Lives Matters movement. Cancel Culture has the majority of people living in fear and publicly showing compliance with the anarchy movement. But democrats are beginning to recognize this will likely increase the Silent Majority by election time. Mainstream Media has adopted the mantra “This is Trump’s America” to blame Trump for the violence of the far left. Unpacking the Republican National Convention. Kimberly Guilfoyle’s weird speech, followed by Donald Trump Jr’s nearly as weird delivery. In spite of these, the RNC actually went very well and was perceived as positive and uplifting. Vernon Jones (D) and Herschel Walker’s powerful speeches. A fresh look at main stream media’s usage of the violence for political gain and complete disregard for George Floyd’s memory. A look at the ongoing corruption of both Republican and Democratic parties. TV series review: Bloodline on Netflix. Set in the Florida Keys, it is a fascinating look at family dynamics.

A brief look at the volatile upcoming presidential election and distrust of voting process. The possibility of another civil war as rioting continues. Industries that are excelling during COVID. Many business consultants need to take a look at these growing segments. E-commerce and its many related industries are leading the way.

Online learning and classes are making it possible to get your education from the best professors in the world. Obviously, the downside is the lack of socialization, building relationships and the displacement of millions of teachers and administrators worldwide. Life lessons built through sports: Discipline, teamwork, overcoming adversity. Not to mention learning how to win and lose. BUT... pro sports - keep the players in the locker room until the national anthem is finished. Keep politics out of sports! What’s going on with online dating during COVID?
