Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/12/21

Attack on the Capitol broken down into 24 hours in Hulu special - ABC News

Active natures are rarely melancholy; activity and sadness are incompatible.”   —   C. N. Bovee

(This one took some time getting started.  Once I settled on ARE RARELY the rest fell into place.  I don’t remember him, but apparently we’ve had a C. N. Bovee quote before.  Just as with the BLM protests, I wonder if this pandemic shutdown is partially responsible for the right-wing attack on the Capitol Building.  Folks who don’t have a job to go to have too much time on their hands!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had to start with the –NESS, and assume the three-letter words were ARE and AND. Mr. Bovee was new to me, but the quote is timely. I’m sure the pandemic response overlays all kind of social unrest.

    Toying with the ARE and AND – which could have been ONE and OUT, or OUR, or even THE and TWO, or maybe TRY – is what helped me see ARE and RARELY, hal. The NESS could have been something else too. — YUR

    Our current, if short-timed, Commander-in-Chief, has a way of arrousing the rabble among us – the poor souls best kept tucked away in a cave until they’re let out for Halloween.

    The way he incites the lower instincts of of his crowd, it was only a matter of time before he’d go off the rails and his type would follow right behind him.

    Except, did you notice, even though he told them he would be right there with them, he carefully secluded himself in safety while his crowd carried out the dirty-work ?

    That’s the way he ran his businesses and other projects. He doesn’t personally take any risks and he’s careful not to tell his dupes to take risks on his behalf.

    Instead, he takes advantage of their greed by duping his lackeys with promises of riches, expecting them to act on their own, assume all the risks, while he stays in the clear. This time he was caught so everyone can see the true instigator.

    It’s now apparent to many, our “emporer-wannebe” has no clothes !

    Surprisingly . . . and sadly, many to most of his supporters STILL support him! A lot of them are convinced that ANTIFA was responsible for the violence and vandalism, and that Trump’s words that day were “totally appropriate”! He never shows any regret when he’s wrong, because he’ll never admit that he’s wrong. His admirers – wrongly – perceive this as “strong leadership”. They subscribe to the old John “Duke” Wayne line: “Never apologize. It’s a sign of weakness.” Owning up to a mistake isn’t really the same as apologizing, but they kind of go hand-in-hand. You don’t apologize for NOT making a mistake.

    My wife has a lot of old classmate friends who still support Trump, because they claim to be “Pro-Life”. What they really mean is they are against all forms of abortion and birth control. They don’t seem to have a problem with capital punishment/the death penalty, or preemptive attacks/wars where thousands – including women and children and the elderly – are killed. For them the fetus, embryo, and fertilized egg’s “life” is more important than the woman who carries it. And, they also don’t seem to be all that concerned about what happens to the unintended, and often unwanted, child after it is born. And, a lot of them seem to think that Pro-Choice people are ghouls, who gleefully ignore taking precautions to avoid pregnancy, and seek out abortions without any conscience whatsoever! It doesn’t matter to them that Biden is Catholic, and personally he does NOT support abortion. But, he knows that his beliefs should not get in the way of allowing a woman to control her own body, and her future.

    I wish that those who think like the professed Pro-Lifers would see that a single issue should not disqualify a good man, and should not excuse a poor one!

    I wonder occasionally if the friends I hang around are representative of “regular” people. I don’t personally know anyonne who subscribes to: “Never apologize. It’s a sign of weakness.”

    How can one “correct the record” if no one acknowledges that the record is “incorrect”. Accountants, lawyers, and judges do that everyday. Even the Supreme Court will overrule a previous decision; I would call that an “apology” in the legal sense.

    Absolutely, lwc! — YUR
