Racism Is Alive And Well …


Alive and well! … I couldn’t have said it any better!! … “Yep, folks, racism is alive and well, and on the rise in the United States of America today. Isn’t it a shame that in all these hundreds of years, we haven’t learned a damn thing?”

Filosofa's Word

Of late, we’ve had plenty of reasons to be ashamed of a large portion of the human species.  Every Tuesday night I work hard to pull together a ‘good people’ post to help us all remember that the samples we see on the news every day are not the norm, that there are truly great people out there making the world a better place every day.  And then, I read about things like those I’m about to discuss, and my Wednesday morning smile fades, I wonder if there is hope for the human species or if it even deserves to continue to exist.

If you’ve ever doubted that racism is alive and well in the United States, wonder no more.  On Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day, Mr. George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man, died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.  Four officers were at the scene…

Meidas Touch Presents …. “🇺🇸 ‘We the People are not Trump’s Human Capital Stock’ 🇺🇸 …. “!!


~~May 28, 2020~~

HUMAN CAPITAL STOCK

What the hell does that mean? Does it mean what I think? Human chattel? Send them to the ‘frontlines’, gas chambers, firing range?

M’gawd … how low can they go?

I so loathe each and every one in this putrid administration!

Senior White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that America’s “human capital stock” is ready to get back work as the country moves toward reopening its economy. 

“Our capital stock hasn’t been destroyed. Our human capital stock is ready to get back to work, and so there are lots of reasons to believe that we can get going way faster than we have in previous crises,” Hassett said.

In fact, to call these MeidasTouch-produced masterpieces “videos,” is the ultimate understatement, as these 30 second to 2:00 minute clips are more akin to heat seeking missiles trained on exposing the crookedness, corruption, and incompetence of Trump and his cronies.

killed by indifference …


DEREK CHAUVIN: THE FACE OF INDIFFERENCE … remember this name! AKA ‘Killer Knee‘ … So very well said: “It’s not just George Floyd who didn’t matter. Of the 100,000 American deaths from Covid-19 over the last four months, 56.5% have been non-white. Only 28% of the US population is non-white. This is no coincidence. Apply that same metric to incarceration, to wealth, to general health care, to arrest rates, to infant mortality, to employment, to just about any social criterion in the United States.”

A lot has been written about the way George Floyd was killed. I think most of what I’ve read gets the story wrong. People have called it a deliberate murder. They’ve said it was a result of racial animus. They’ve described it as a hate crime.

I don’t think that’s entirely correct. I think it was something even worse. I think it was an act of casual indifference.

I don’t know what motivated Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who kept his knee on Floyd’s neck. How could I? But from watching the video, my sense is that Chauvin wasn’t angry. He wasn’t scared. He didn’t feel threatened. He wasn’t nervous or alarmed or even annoyed. Chauvin, to me, seemed unconcerned, not just about what was he was doing, but also to what was taking place around him. He seemed unmoved by it all.

That’s what I saw in the…

Twitter Vs. Twitler …


Right now … “Of course, this is just one great big morbidly obese bluff. Donald Trump has NO authority to restrict free speech, to regulate, or shut down social media platforms. And, Donald Trump without Twitter would be like Donald Trump without his orange face paint, or Trump without the long red tie, or Trump without the ill-fitting suits he buys off the rack despite having his own line of suits, or Trump without the dead yellow ferret on his head, or Trump without Nazis, or … etc, etc.” … but if he’s re-elected then the shyte hits the fan!! #VOTE

For Donald Trump, persecution is having the standards everyone else has to live by being applied to him.

And here’s the thing: That hasn’t even happened in this situation.

Lori Klausutis was a staffer to then-Congressman Joe Scarborough when she suddenly died from a heart problem which made her hit her head on a desk in the Florida district office for the congressman. Scarborough was in Washington at the time. There has never been any evidence of foul play. But, just like the Seth Rich conspiracy theories MAGAts and the 4chan crowd like to spread, they’re using the death of Ms. Klausutis to engage in attacks against one of their Dear Leader’s political enemies, Joe Scarborough who is now the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. And guess who’s joined in?

Donald Trump has used the death of Ms. Klausutis for his own political gain. After being super chummy with Scarborough…

Trump/Twitter Saga Continues


“Trump, who is upset Twitter flagged two of his tweets about mail-in ballots and voter fraud with a fact-check warning, and other Republicans have accused social media companies of left-wing bias.” … hey! Want some cheese with the ‘whine’? … disgust!!

In Saner Thought

Yesterday I wrote about the back and forth between Trump and Twitter…..to the point that Trump has threatened to close down social media….especially Twitter…..

But read my thoughts for yourself……https://lobotero.com/2020/05/27/closing-thought-27may20/

But as I closed the post with….the saga continues and now the rest of the story from Donald the Orange……

President Trump’s feud with Twitter continues. The latest: White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Wednesday night that the POTUS will soon sign an executive order aimed at social media companies, the AP reports. White House strategic communications director Alyssa Farah said the move would come Thursday, but neither offered further details on what exactly it would entail. Politico explains that tech companies are concerned Trump will target a 1996 statute protecting them from lawsuits; conservatives have increasingly accused the companies of abusing that protection, which has so far afforded them broad leeway to censor material they deem objectionable…
