Juneteenth:
..
.
a holiday celebrated on June 1to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, enslaved people were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

Interestingly enough, the Emancipation Proclamation did not free slaves in MO (or WV, KY or MD). When given, it had all the effect that an announcement by the US President today would have declaring women in Iran now have the right to wear bikinis.

Legend has it that it’s a bot. It’s either that or a very dedicated disgruntled ex-AG.

First comment!

Apparently, Isaiah Buggs got arrested – again – this morning. This time for breaking into his ex’s house and threatening her with a tire iron.

Mr. Veach, please cut this garbage of a human being from the roster, like yesterday.

While I don’t disagree with the sentiment (assuming the charges are true), you probably should check time stamps when assembling time lines
