I remember hearing about pirates that would fly a different flag to disguise their identity and this would let them get closer to other ships so they could attack them. Representative Greene the one who was just thrown off the committees the other day had said the Parkland school shooting was a false flag. She indicated that this incident only happened to make it easier for others to take guns away from others. I am all for taking guns away from people who don’t actually need them, as if there were less guns around and they were harder to get, everyone would be much safer. There was a time and a place for the Second Amendment (Right to bear arms) and that was in Colonial times and the Wild West, but we should act more civilized now and get some of these crazed gun nuts off the streets.
I wonder if a woman who wears false eyelashes could that be considered as sending out a false flag, but then if it makes her feel better about herself and it gives her more confidence, and since it seems harmless, then I guess not and I am all for it. Anything that has to do with cosmetics or fashion is most likely going to be an improvement, so if people want to look more glamorous that is a good thing. Of course, this can go too far reaching the stage of vanity to consume people’s souls, but my motto has always been, if it feels good, then do it.
One more false flag of hope before I go. Last night was my 50th High School Class reunion, but it was virtual, because of the pandemic. Only one other guy besides me signed up and I saw that a girl signed up also. I knew the guy mostly from the senior class trip where we rode on the same bus together to get to the Poconos, but we were not really friends. The girl may have been in a few classes that I was in, but I don’t really know much about her. Anyway, the guy just underwent heart surgery and he posted a message that he probably wouldn’t be able to make it and I was the only one there at the reunion. I have never been good at keeping up with old friends and with the Covid, it is impossible to make any new friends, but I guess all I really need is to be happy.
