20200921: MAGA Protest Against Stupidity, Swanton, Ohio

Looks like this one is west of the mistake on the lake also known as Cleveland.

Wiki is not much help today:

A post office called Swanton has been in operation since 1827.[6] The village takes its name from nearby Swan Creek.[7]

In the heyday of steam power, Swanton was home to the A. D. Baker Company, a manufacturer of steam powered traction engines and road contractors’ equipment. It was at the Baker Company that an improved valve gear for steam engines was developed. A Baker employee named Gifford is credited with the initial idea, which was subsequently developed into the Baker valve gear and patented in 1903. Baker valve ear was eventually manufactured by The Pilliod Company, another Swanton business. Baker valve gear from Pilliod saw widespread use on U.S. steam locomotives for railroads in the first half of the 20th century.

On February 15, 1992, Air Transport International Flight 805 crashed in Swanton, killing all four people on board.[8]

On June 6, 2019, a vehicle left parked on the tracks next to the Main Street railroad crossing resulted in a derailment that knocked out power to the town and much of the surrounding area, and hampered traffic on one of the main rail lines linking the Midwest to the East Coast.[9]

And, as of this evening, the keepers of the wiki page can make another entry:

On Monday, September 21, 2020, President Donald J. Trump held a Make America Great Again protest against stupidity at the airport.

Swanton does, though, have a unique claim to fame.

Swanton Memorial Park is home to one of E. M. Viquesney‘s “Spirit of the American Doughboy” statues. The sculpture was one of several donated as a gift by France to U.S. cities that had lost many soldiers during World War I. It is described as a “Figure of a World War I infantryman advancing through the stumps and barbed wire of No Man’s Land. He holds a grenade in his raised proper right hand and a rifle in his proper left hand.”[13] The Smithsonian Institution Research Information System lists the statue as being installed in 1926, “administered by City of Swanton, Parks Division, Swanton, Ohio.”[14] Also according to the Smithsonian, the inscription on the statue reads as follows: “Spirit of the/American Doughboy”/copyrighted by E. M. Viquesney/Georgia (On stone base:) SWANTON REMEMBERS/TO THE MEMORY/OF THE/VALIANT SONS OF/SWANTON & COMMUNITY/WORLD WAR/1917-1918/THIS MEMORIAL IS/LOVINGLY DEDICATED/WE HOLD THEM IN OUR/GRATEFUL HEARTS WITH/REVERENCE AND HONOR/FOREVER/ERECTED 1926 unsigned.[13]

I’ll add live links to this post during the late afternoon as they become available.

Energy Independence, #1 Producer of Oil and Natural Gas on earth

No oil, No guns, No God…..DOES NOT WORK IN TEXAS!!! DON’T MESS WITH US!!!

How about if the RNC makes this into a huge POTUS campaign push —
“A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for NO OIL, NO GUNS, and NO GOD. Vote Trump!”

Supression Polls, they do that to depress you, so you won’t vote, and go to dinner, and go home and watch election results. In 2016 they didn’t do that. They all went out and voted and WE KICKED ASS!

duchess01

“They all went out and VOTED – and we KICKED A$$!!! Crowd like that one!!!

He is definitely more energized than he was in the last rally – and this crowd is with him!!!
Rattling off more of his accomplishments than in the last rally! What a difference!!!

I don’t think the last rally was really supposed to be a rally. He went to do a specific talk. But he usually interjects rally stuff into them. I really don’t mind, the more of him the better, AFAIC!!!🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️

duchess01

It did seem strange – the crowd was so quiet – you could be right – Wolf mentioned ENERGY – and the importance of that – so that might be why.

wolfmoon1776

“Lester Holt – that’s another beauty!”
LOL!!!

duchess01

Too many ‘beauties’ to count – LOL

This is really bad. I really think it’s beyond socialism…Communism, which is much worse.

wolfmoon1776

COMMUNISM

He went there.

duchess01

He said it at the last rally,, too, but I think it fell on deaf ears – mentioned it to Wolf – surprised me!!!

wolfmoon1776

He’s warning us!!!

duchess01

YES!!! And – I hope he keeps repeating it!!!

Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

duchess01

I am going to keep my arms covered – it is getting colder here – lol

duchess01

wolfmoon1776

Here’s the problem – you have to change permissions on your blog pictures.comment image

duchess01

Oh, I see – have seen that message before – thought I was logged in – since i have not been denied access – so will look into it – Thanks, Wolf!

wolfmoon1776

It’s not you – it’s BFLY. She has to let people see images on her blog without logging into it.

duchess01

Oh, I see – reason why when you click on the ‘question mark in the square’ – it goes to her blog and you are denied access – understand now what happened to me – the other day.

wolfmoon1776

Yup. Gotta make your media public, and that may mean making the blog itself public.

duchess01

Oh, I did not know that – Thanks!

Glad you spoke up. I see the images, LOL!! Didn’t know everybody else couldn’t!!

duchess01

Nope – 🙁

OK, I’ll check it out. LOL, so all my images have not been posting for days on the rally threads?????🙃🙃🙃 No Baby? No Bacon?😭😭😭

Only little trick is you need to remove the “?” + string of numbers so image displays in wordpress.
