Why is it I don't hear cries of woe: "Stop the slaughter of Muslims."?
The systematic murder of hundress of thousands at the hands of Myanmar Buddhists and Chinacoms has everybody totalky unconcerned.
It is as if the Rohyinga and the Uyghurs were not human. No pictures of their slaughtered children. No screams for their right of return to their homeland.
No calls for "humanitarian intervention."
No flowers at their mass graves.
Victor Davis Hanson intellectually cratering the latest liberal numb skull narrative of "Trump exhaustion".
So very many astute observations, a particularly choice morsel:
"...Trump’s style is often seen as his weakness. Again, perhaps. But for many it was his very combativeness that fueled his support, as if near lethal chemotherapy not delusional neglect is more likely to shrink cancerous tumors."
Trumped out? GTFOOH! He hasn't even begun to hammer those fools.
Any Bluegrassers on the forum heading to Winfield, KS for the WVF this week? It would be great to meet up with some of you all!
It’s long past time to address this.
THANK YOU AG BARR.
I was just talking about something similar the other day.
I was talking to a young person and they wanted to know what the most important thing that I have learned in my life and I told them it was learning to be content, whatever the circumstances.
There is a great freedom derived from contentment.
Lord James of Blackheath asks for truth about the sinister post Brexit plan to strip England of its military. Please correct me if I don't understand his plea.
Local, National Trump supporters targeted by leftist boycotts.
Great news! More computer code writers on the way...

6)If I push it with YouTube, I’m not sure what the outcome would be. I might end up doing more harm than good. Seriously, I’m a nobody with a handful of very lovely supporters who like very much what I do — and I don’t want to jeopardize that.
Sorry, I’m rambling. It’s just another reminder that everyday people see and feel the affects of social media censorship — even if it’s in a very small way.
5)Part of me is saying that I should be glad they didn’t pull it completely. But part of me is hollering FOUL. It’s a lovely tune and an instrumental at that. I’ve done scores of tunes, including other hymns — Amazing Grace, His Eye is on the Sparrow, etc. — and those are still up with no limits. So maybe this isn’t about anti-Christian bias. But then again, it does raise the ol’ radar.
4)I know, I know....this pales in comparison to the level of censorship endured by others. The small, small amount of monetization isn’t the issue — I get maybe 25 bucks every other month for all the digital distribution I get for my music over all platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, etc. combined. So it’s not about the lack of monetization.
3)According to YouTube FAQ section, this kind of action is automated, based upon specific words within the title or description. I assume their algorithms picked up on the word “suffering” and flagged it for that reason. The YouTube FAQ section says that you can get a human to review the decision by clicking on “request review”. But this option is grayed out and not clickable. In other words, it appears they have no interest in discussing it. The A.I. decision therefore, is final.
2)I posted a video a couple of days ago, featuring me playing an instrumental version of an Old-Time hymn entitled “Talk About Suffering”. It’s a standard in Old Time and Bluegrass circles. The video was flagged as being “inappropriate for some advertisers”, and thus the video would be viewable, but with few or no ads running on it.
