  Here is Muse performing “City of Delusion” live. An interesting side note: as I was looking for the lyrics online I had trouble finding the correct ones because I found that most of the sites changed “all seeing eye” to “all seeing red.” I am sure that was an innocent mistake…

Stay away from me
Build a fortress
And shield your beliefs
Touch the divine
As we fall in line

Can I believe
When I don’t trust
All your theories
Turn to dust
I choose to hide
From the all seeing eye

Destroy this City of Delusion
Break these walls down
I will avenge
Justify my reasons
With your blood

You’ll not rest
Settle for less
Until you guzzle
And squander what’s left
Do not deny
That you live and let die

    I have been watching the news about the 2 monuments of Confederate soldiers in Little Rock Ar. at the State Capitol. Today the BLM group is supposed to protest. Yesterday they were there, the bikers and people that were packing were also there circling the fence the Governor had put up along with State Police and the City Police and Park Rangers. Kid Brown from Atlanta, the BLM leader brought his people in on one of the side streets. There was alot of grandstanding by them, but the Pro-statue group was not backing down. There was also alot of name calling from the BLM group. They finally turned around and the small group walked in the direction they came from. Will see what transpires today. I would think maybe not a whole lot. Depending on if the town/city is a democratically controlled area they have a better chance of causing trouble.

      That’s good news, glad to see cooler heads prevailed. I wonder how much of this is going on that is not being reported by the news.

    Encouraging …
    does it really matter though what the people want vs what the ‘god of this world’ wants (2 Corinthians 4:4) and his minions who are obeying, agreeing to and performing?

      “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him” 1 John 2:15-17

        👍 Yes, there’s a ‘difference’ between the ‘World’ and ‘GOD’s Word’ – the system run under the ‘god of this world 🐍’ 🙈 🙊 🙉 who ‘blinds’ people to the Truth. The Word of GOD is of the Earth w/out the ‘L’ of the World.
        World – l = Word
        Good tag w/ verses! 👏
        Interesting too that John 2:15-17 accompanies that meaning well and fills in some of the thinking ~ meaning 🥳

      Looks pretty quiet there! In New Hampshire there are 23 people in the whole state who are hospitalized with COVID.

        hmmm Wonder it that’s even true. Those informing us of the numbers tend to be DS (notice the outlandish polls w/ Biden far in the lead, like Hilly was last election!). [These are the same one’s who want mail-in voting.] Calling it CV when it’s something else. I bet Chicago’s Hospitals are busier! CV shotgun wounds.
