Another one of those times we call “The Week that Was.” We have a new country inside of our country. No wars fought, just a takeover. I’m wondering how that is even legal, let alone legit. Maybe you’re wondering, too, if this will go on until late fall, like the 1967 Summer of Love. Will the new nation of CHAZ be financed and fed by the United States of America? Good question. Chaz could go on or it could end today. Nation building isn’t easy.
Meanwhile, Chazians are finding out that a nation needs a few basics, like food, shelter, law enforcement, and—wait for it—borders. They require identification to get in to their country. Will they need an army? Most nations do. We shall see in the coming days ahead.
Note: CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) has changed its name to CHOP. (Capitol Hill Organized Protest).
Since today is June 14, I’m proudly displaying a huge American flag . It couldn’t come at a better time.
Welcome to those returning and our new subscribers. We’re always grateful when you find the information here worthy of forwarding to a friend who might be interested.
Thank you for taking a moment to open up the weekly update. Each week I will include the latest articles I have written. An occasional personal note from me will also arrive in the weekly email. The advantage of being a subscriber is the ability to see Common Sense Civics and Citizenship without the comments that usually appear with social media posts. Seeing things in a new way without comment can provide additional insights. It’s like watching C-SPAN. They just run the cameras with no comment. Viewing national events in this way gives you an opportunity to form your own opinions. Learning is not cluttered with distractions. And so it is with reading the weekly updates we send. I hope you enjoy them.
Thank you for being an American who is interested in a Common Sense approach to Civics and Citizenship.
