Black Masks

Black Masks

As a kid I’d watch Zoro and the Lone Ranger and wondered, “Why are the good guys wearing the masks?”

Of course, they authors of these stories have the heros wearing masks so they don’t bring attention to themselves in real life.  However, in real life, it’s usually the criminals wearing the masks.  They hide their faces to avoid getting caught.

The wearing of masks should be an indication to us that someone is up to no good.  My bank has a sign at the entrance stating you must remove any facial covering before entering the building.  (Failure to do so will result in the police descending and the place and arresting you!)

Anonymity is seldom a good thing.


A terrorist group that calls themselves ANTIFA (which is short for Anti-fascists) .  They claim they are for less government control, however, a couple of days ago they attacked a group that was holding a peaceful rally in Portland, Oregon.  They group they attacked was for smaller government.  However, because they are also Trump supporters, ANTIFA exercised their fascist style calling  Patriot Prayer a fascist group.  Wearing black masks, ANTIFA violently attacked members of Patriot Prayer.

What a bunch of hypocrites!

Patriot Prayer is for less government, and they are attacked by a group that claims they are for less government.  I don’t think ANTIFA was prepared for the response from Patriot Prayer.   The members of the former didn’t take it.  One cell phone video shows a big burly man cold-cocking a person wearing a black mask making a full-on assault.

Cowards Hide

Cowards hide behind masks.  In spite of what comic book heroes want you to think, true heroes don’t hide behind masks.  The patriots who founded this country didn’t wear masks.  They stood up to the tyrannical Britts.

I’m not sure who the tyrants are behind ANTIFA.  They appear to be lawless and amoral cowards who hide behind their anonymity, exercising fascist like control while calling themselves anti-fascists.  They stand behind a smokescreen of words.  Being something everyone decent people appall, they think they can hide by calling others the very thing they are — fascists.

fascism (făshˈĭzˌəm)

  • n.
    A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

ANTIFA, you have met the enemy, and it is ANTIFA.



My wife walked in to the room and after a few minutes she leaned towards me and whispered, “He’s smarmy.” A good judge of character (my wife, that is), I later learned she was correct.

While she doesn’t use social media, I would love to get her take on some people on Facebook.  Smarmy, unctuous, greasy, or downright treacherous, I’ve come across them all.


The anonymity of Facebook, even though Facebook requires people to be “real people”, is enough for some people to hide behind their profile.  Because they can hide, they say things that are hurtful. That is why she chooses not to be on Facebook.

Stock Pictures

I’m taking more stock photos.  My studio now has a cyclorama table that allows me to photograph small objects.  This was one of my favorites from today.

Chili Peppers

Comes summer I think I’ll be taking more produce photos.  Or, will I be producing more produce photos?  Either way, I love how this chili photo turned out.

Winter Flower

There are plenty of images to choose from, and you can order them already framed, matted, glazed and ready to hang on the wall.  Keep in mind, the price is usually less than what you’d pay at Michael’s with a half-off coupon just for the frame, matting and glazing!
