    There are six clauses to the First Amendment, three of which were being exercised lawfully by peaceful protestors before federal agents dispersed them using chemical "pepper balls," batons, shields, fists, and feet, on the orders of the current occupant of the first-ever-fenced-and-walled-in People's (White) House, and its underground bunker. The conservative Brookings Institution has dubbed the incident the "Battle of Lafayette Square," a misnomer since a battle implies acts of violence on both sides of the conflict. However, even more conservative people have taken up the term "Lafayette Square" as the bunker occupant's "Waterloo," a common idiom Webster's Dictionary says "has given its name to the very notion of final defeat," and which Napoleon himself said would "erase the memory of so many victories." At least Bonaparte had some success to point to.

    @crossfit apologized to no effect. The fitness industry just had its most eventful 24 hours, ever.

    I'm still looking for more complete coverage of the events leading up to the event, but I'm fairly confident of the following.

    1. Incorrect. They were combative.

    2. Incorrect. It's a mouthpiece for the left.

    3. Incorrect. See 1. And "battle" is press frenzy.

    It is amazing to watch. Neither Rogue nor Reebok would be in existence right now were it not for CrossFit, i.e. Glassman. And they pushed each other out of the way to be the first one to throw the man under the fucking bus. Shameful. The mob rules.

    St. Michael the Archangel is the patron saint of police. Which I guess has Trump doubling down on the law and order thing.

    Mostly driven by conformity up and down the ladder inside companies (with HR as puppet master?). Mine sends emails about "board-certified doctors" and "systemic racism". And it's not just from the top, but from levels down, as if the top is forcing the hierarchy to speak in unison. So we're getting these messages from leaders who until now have been very sensible and technical.

    Rogue has been steadily diversifying (read: divorcing) itself from both CrossFit affiliates and CrossFit sport. Reebok's contract expired in a few months, and they likely exaggerated the prospect of its renegotiation. Did any party consider CrossFit Inc. an agreeable business partner? Maybe Tim Noakes.

    Glassman is maimed, not dead. I'm guessing he'll hold on to 30% of his U.S. affiliates, and maybe more internationally.

    Attorney General Barr's secret, nameless, armed federal officers, outfitted in battle dress, put to the private, personal service of the occupant of the walled-in the People's (White) House, are nothing new, except in the United States. They have a long history in regimes such as the Shah's Iran (Savak), Saddam Hussein's Iraq (Mukhabarat) and Mussolini's Italy (OVRA) whose name includes a resonant phrase "repression of anti-fascism" and of course, the secret police employed by that other right-wing fascist member of the European Axis. Each of the many countries that have used such forces were dissimilar to the United States in many ways, but mostly because we have a genuine constitution, nearly every word of which disallows what Barr and his master did.

    CrossFit will keep 2/3 of the affiliates. That still makes them the biggest fitness brand in the world.
