change gonna come


We know a change is coming … but we don’t know where we are headed!! … “It has been a long time coming. I don’t know what the change will be, but it’s coming. There’s no guarantee the change will be a good one. But all the same, it’s coming”

gregfallis.com

Every time the United States is coping with widespread rioting sparked by racism and police violence during an economic crisis caused by the near-collapse of the national healthcare system overloaded by an inept and indifferent response to a global pandemic taking place a few months before the most critical presidential election in the history of this nation pitting an essentially decent, good-hearted but bumbling old white man against a malignant, mendacious, ignorant old white man, I am reminded of the words of the Poet Sam Cooke.

A change gonna come.

It has been a long time coming. I don’t know what the change will be, but it’s coming. There’s no guarantee the change will be a good one. But all the same, it’s coming. I’m scared to be very hopeful, I really am. I know the change — even if it’s a good one, even if it’s the change I…

Meidas Touch Presents …. “🇺🇸 ‘The Looters …. #TrumpLoots’ 🇺🇸 …. “!!


~~May 30, 2020~~

THE LOOTERS

America, the richest country in the world finds its coffers drained by the Trump family, the Cabinet members and anyone who was called in to the “SWAMP” he was supposed to drain!

Take a look!!

HortyRex©

The newest MeidasTouch video released today is called ‘The Looters’ and will be launched with the hashtag #TrumpLoots.

While Trump disparages and threatens to shoot and kill individuals who are protesting police brutality and systemic oppression following the murder of George Floyd, calling them looters, we must not forget who the real looters are. The real looters are Trump, his family, and the grifter-politicians who support and prop up this historically corrupt administration for the benefit of billionaires and not the people.

The Trump administration steals from the poor and gives to the rich. And to Trump. And to Trump’s family. Whether its cutting taxes for billionaires, cutting deals with foreign dictators to enrich the Trump family, or cutting checks paid by for by the American taxpayers to Trump and his family, this is the real looting that is taking place.

The real looting is taking place in mansions, in country clubs, in penthouses, and in the White House where Trump has sold the soul and spirit of America to the highest bidder.

We present to you, ‘The Looters.’

~Published May 30, 2020~~

The REAL looters live in the White House.

Vote them out.

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.

Distrust — Why People Are Demonstrating …


#JoseCamposTorres#SayHisName … thanks for educating me!!
” … the people on the streets are not only protesting the death of George Floyd. They are also demonstrating against a system of empty promises that has often laughed in our faces because they have the authority to do so.’

José Campos Torres (December 20, 1953 – May 5, 1977) was a 23-year-old Mexican-American and Vietnam veteran who was ruthlessly beaten by several Houston Police Department (HPD) officers that subsequently led to his death. He was assaulted by a group of on-duty police officers after being arrested for disorderly conduct at a bar in Houston’s Mexican-American East End neighborhood. (Wikipedia). 

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

If you’re like me, since the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Cop Derek Chauvin, you’ve spent hours watching demonstrators in the streets of major cities.  I was doing that yesterday when seeing signs carried by demonstrators. Some signs had names of others killed by police.  One name struck me.  That name is Jose Campos Torres.

Kare reports the following:

MINNEAPOLIS — United States Attorney Erica Macdonald says they’re conducting a “robust and meticulous” criminal investigation into the police-related death of George Floyd.In a press conference Thursday evening, Macdonald said that the Department of Justice has made the investigation into George Floyd’s death a top priority.

“We have assigned the highest of the high in my office to investigate and look at the case,” Macdonald said. “FBI, likewise, has assigned their experienced law enforcement officers to conduct the investigation.” She added that President Donald Trump and Attorney…

Yes, White America is failing … “In case you’re a Republican, “thug” is the new N-word. Oh, wait, if you’re a Republican, you already know that. It’s why you use it so often.”

I can’t claim to totally understand race issues in our country. But I understand enough to know that you have to be able to identify racism before you can start to understand race issues.

For example: The president (sic) of the United States doesn’t see his own hypocrisy when it comes to race. He didn’t just endorse white gun nuts storming Michigan’s state capitol building. He egged them on. He tweeted to the governor of that state to “make a deal” with the protesters because they were “good people” who are angry. Contrast that with protesters in Minneapolis. Donald Trump tweeted, “When the looting starts, that’s when the shooting starts.” Those in Michigan wearing MAGA shirts with signs saying they want haircuts, and a few with nooses and Nazi imagery, were “good people” to Donald Trump. Those in Minneapolis are “thugs.”

In case you’re a Republican, “thug” is the new…

Saturday Morning


Ah, nature!! … “I look for my Canada Geese and their two offspring. They never disappoint. Fluffy youngsters, hungry, pecking away at the grass. Mother hisses. Hey, I’m Canadian too, cut me some slack!”

Live & Learn

5:02 a.m. I’m out the door. 65° F. Hass: “Still. Not a breath of wind.

Morning routine since May 5th sans running. 5 mile round trip walk to Cove Island Park. New thing, this walking thing. Camera forces me pause, to stop. Apple Watch flashes “Finished Your Workout?” And offers up two options, “End Workout” & “Pause.” I stare at the both options. Even looking at “Pause” makes me uncomfortable.

I look for myCanada Geese and their two offspring. They never disappoint. Fluffy youngsters, hungry, pecking away at the grass. Mother hisses. Hey, I’m Canadian too, cut me some slack!

I look for my Swans, mates, sleeping with their necks tucked back under their wings, floating on their water bed on high tide.

I look for my trio of mallards, two females and the polygamist. Skittish.

I look for my Loon, solo, always solo, fishing…

On Moving Toward a Failed State


Sadly, I think it has … “Is America becoming a failed state? Certainly all of our warts are now showing for all the world to see. Failed states aren’t able to govern anymore. Democracy has been shredded, the rule of law has broken down and elites are able to get away with anything. “

toritto

I never thought I would see a day when the ineptness and impotence of the United States of America was on full display for all the world to see.

According the Real Politics, 103,418 deaths have been attributed to the virus as of this morning; more than England, France, Italy and Germany combined.  American deaths are now greater than the combat deaths of the Vietnam and Korean wars combined.  Those war deaths occurred over years of fighting.  Our pandemic deaths have occurred over the last three months.

Just look at the news from the last couple of weeks. Wearing a mask to guard against the coronavirus has become a tribal issue, with people refusing to wear them out of a sense of identity politics. Incidents of violence and even a shooting death have occurred over masks. Donald Trump was still promoting a drug that has now been proven to cause…
