‘Elect a clown, expect a circus’, they say … ‘THIS abominable clown convention is NOT what We The People are paying hard-earned tax dollars for! Get these clowns out of office and let us hire some people who take the job seriously!’

Filosofa's Word

The biggest circus on earth came to town on 20 January 2017, and its cast of characters just keeps expanding.  The latest to put on the clown suit and perform is none other than Steve King, U.S. Representative from Iowa.  Mr. King first came under Filosofa’s watchful eye in March 2017, more than two years ago, when he was awarded the coveted Filosofa’s Idiot of the Week award.    Ever since, he has remained on the radar for one thing or another, the most frequent and troublesome being his blatant and very public racism.  It finally became such an embarrassment to his fellow members of Congress that this past January, Mr. King was stripped of all his committee assignments in Congress.steve-kingThis week, Mr. King hooked up with two other members of this circus, Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, aka Diamond and Silk. Diamond and Silk are two African-American…

Monica Puig Is Still Fighting For Puerto Rico, Two Years After Hurricane María


#PicaPower … #MonicaPuig … ‘I’m always going to help [the people of] Puerto Rico with whatever they need, and make the world know what Puerto Rico’s all about. It’s an island that’s given me so much. But it’s also taught me that you have to enjoy every moment that you have because you never know – it can go so quickly.’

Repeating Islands

Tennis player Monica Puig rose to international stardom when she became the first athlete — of any sport, and any gender — to win the gold medal for Puerto Rico at the 2016 Rio Olympics, beating the then-#2-ranked Angelique Kerber. For Puerto Ricans, the victory was not just an emotional symbol of the island’s ability to thrive as an independent entity, separate from the United States; it was a triumph of athleticism, and a testament to the island’s rich tennis culture.

A year later, Hurricane María devastated the island while Puig was competing in the Pan Pacific Open. Puig came back to assist in rebuilding and recovery efforts, raising nearly $200,000 through crowdfunding. Though Puerto Rico is now nearing its second year after the disaster, the island’s infrastructure still has not recoveredas it prepares for the 2019 hurricane season. Today, voices like…

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.     

~Nathaniel Hawthorne~

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

~Jeffrey Glassberg~

Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves.     

~Drew Barrymore~

This is a real picture.

YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN

Just in time for Pride Month!

In her most political move yet.

She just released a lyric video. Will wait for the ‘people version’.

Hats off!!

Thank you TeTe!!

HortyRex

At midnight on Friday, Taylor Swift dropped her new track “You Need To Calm Down,” in what is her most political effort yet. Sitting just under three minutes, the single is a markedly less saccharine experience than her last single “ME!”, but it’s the lyrics, ardent in their support for the LGBTQ community, which has got the internet very excited.

The first verse is a general middle finger to her internet critics, but then by the second verse, the song takes clear aim at homophobes. It’s perfect timing given it’s currently Pride month, and the lyrics aren’t subtle about those who are against the LGBTQ community.

“Taylor Swift is one of the world’s biggest pop stars,” said Anthony Ramos, Director of Talent Engagement at GLAAD. “The fact that she continues to use her platform and music to support the LGBTQ community and the Equality Act is a true sign of being an ally. ‘

You Need to Calm Down’ is the perfect Pride anthem, and we’re thrilled to see Taylor standing with the LGBTQ community to promote inclusivity, equality, and acceptance this Pride month.”

Taylor Swift‘s new song “You Need to Calm Down” from the upcoming album Lover is basically a gay anthem that is perfect for Pride Month!

In each of the verses, the 29-year-old singer takes aim at different people/groups of people who just need to calm down.

VERY EXPENSIVE PINEAPPLES

In the American colonies in the 1700’spineapples were no less revered. Imported from the Caribbean islands, pineapples that arrived in America were very expensive – one pineapple could cost as much as $8000 (in today’s dollars).

This high cost was due to the perishability, novelty, exoticism, and scarcity of the fruit.
