    Not an enjoyable show. This week I've been watching the Marvel tv series Luke Cage and there's a minor character named Bobby Fish playing chess in the barbershop. Reminds me of the barbershop on Queen St. that had a chess set in the window.


    • I knew that barbershop on Queen St. Went by there several times and always looked. Brings back memories. One of the chess characters in my hometown of London (Ontario) used to play blindfold in CFC tournaments under the alias of A. Fish. His rating appeared for years under A. Fish. Another character, every time he saw him would first thing ask him: What does A stand for?

        The U.S. is now escalating the Covid War with China, things could get very ugly both politically and economically.

        This might be a good time to bring up a prediction from over 10 years ago, which was that there will not be a 2020 U.S. Presidential election. The Democrats are concerned that Trump loses the election but considers it rigged and doesn't leave office, but a sorta semi-famous person made that prediction (of no election even being held) over 10 years ago.

        That same person also predicted that the spring of 2020 would see a viral outbreak that would become a pandemic. Yes, over 10 years ago.

        But the person making these two predictions (among others) did not connect them together. The person said that when trying to see the 2020 election, there was only "blackness".

        I think every day that this drags on the probability of no 2020 U.S. election grows larger. One possibility is that Trump declares a National Emergency because of economic depression which "only he can fix".


        • The democrats are the tyrants. If Trump loses, he will leave and Biden will be president until he isn't and the VP takes over. May God have mercy on our souls. There is a 20 year pattern of assassination or death that was broken when Reagan didn't die.


          • There were other multiple predictions as early as 2007 that Trump would be president for two terms. Edit: Actually there are prophecies going back to the 1980s by the Hermit of Loreto that Trump would be president.

            "In the 1980s the Hermit of Loreto donated a brick to be put in the Holy Door of the Vatican that said “Donald J. Trump” because he knew this man would bring America back to God."

                  • I just watched Guy Richie movie Revolver with Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vincent Pastore and Andre Benjamin. Violent as you might expect from Guy Richie and Luc Besson. I thought it was quite good. There was a chess theme throughout.
