PLEASE HELP. I HAVE NO GROCERIES AND I HAVEN'T EATEN IN TWO DAYS.
I'm sorry to ask. Covid has fucked up my entire financial status. I've been out work for months and my partner's disability check barely gets us by. Now his account is in the red over $500.
Please please please. Begging makes me feel like shit, but I have no other options at this point. We've asked our families, but they are also effected by everything that's happened on top of just being poor already.
We just need help. Anything is appreciated.

On May 24th, several hundred protesters stood on the porch of the Kentucky Governor's mansion, many of who were armed with rifles and demanding for him to come outside. This took place for nearly two hours while many beat on the glass windows of his home. The same group later that day hung an effigy of Governor Beshear from a tree. This group was made up primarily of middle-aged white males and they were protesting over COVID-19 restrictions. In response to this protest, they are now building a fence around the Governor's Mansion. ZERO ARRESTS WERE MADE.
On July 14th, 87 protestors sat in the front lawn in front of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's house. They were sitting in lines with their hands in their laps. This group was unarmed and made up of mostly young people both white and of color who were demanding justice for Breonna Taylor. Other than his grass no part of the Attorney General's home was touched. ALL 87 WERE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH A FELONY. They face a sentence of 1-5 years.
This is the story you need to be sharing today.

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell told his Republican colleagues Tuesday that he has privately been urging the Trump White House not to strike a coronavirus relief deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi before the November 3 election, warning that an agreement could interfere with the chamber's plan to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court early next week.
McConnell's remarks, first reported by the Washington Post, came during a closed-door Senate GOP lunch just ahead of a Tuesday evening deadline for a relief deal set by Pelosi and agreed to by the Trump administration. While the deadline came and went without a deal, the House Speaker told Democratic lawmakers late Tuesday that the two sides "have been making some progress" and continued to voice optimism that "we can reach an agreement before the election."

A training slideshow used at one time by Kentucky State Police encouraged troopers to be "ruthless killer(s)" and contained quotes from Adolf Hitler, student journalists at a Kentucky high school uncovered this week.
"Be the loving father, spouse, and friend as well as a ruthless killer," reads a slide included in the presentation. That same slide includes a quote from Hitler's "Mein Kampf" that reads "The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence." The presentation also contained other quotes from the Nazi Party leader, as well as Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee
The Manual RedEye, the online school newspaper of duPont Manual High School in Louisville, broke the story Friday. The slideshow was obtained as part of an open records request a local attorney made during the discovery phase of a lawsuit regarding a Harlan County man who was shot and killed by a detective in 2018. The school publication says that lawyer, David Ward of Adams Landenwich Walton, shared the presentation with the student journalists.
High schoolers uncovered this by successfully arguing a FOIA request for documents to be made public.

Western States: Does the east have any pretty National Park Service sites?
Kentucky: Hold my mint julep!
Big South Fork National Recreation Area is bursting with beauty and Yahoo Falls on the #Kentucky side of the park, is awaiting your arrival.
The Yahoo Falls trail provides access to and allows for good views of the 113 foot Yahoo Falls. The trail is easy with the exception of some very steep metal steps. The trail passes behind the falls under one of the largest rock shelters in the area. As with most waterfalls in the region, water volume is significantly reduced during periods of dryer weather. This mile long trail will immerse you in the unique geology and natural features that dominate the Cumberland Plateau.
