Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was fatally shot in her Louisville, Kentucky apartment on March 13, 2020, when a search warrant was executed by white officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove of the Louisville Metro Police Department.

Newly crowned “America’s Got Talent” winner Brandon Leake chatted with Ellen about what winning the $1-million prize means to him, how he first got started in spoken word, and how writing personal pieces has become cathartic and a way of healing for him.

Then, Brandon took the stage to debut a moving poem dedicated to Breonna Taylor.

Coach Rudy


Go figure – Christie’s a bully, Guliani is a lunatic!! Boom!! … “Whoever thought it was a great idea to have Christie and Giuliani coach Trump is an idiot. So, obviously it was Donald Trump’s idea.”

In an attempt to lower expectations for Donald Trump’s debate performance, the White House and Trump Campaign told us beforehand he wasn’t really practicing. Donald Trump himself told us that answering questions from reporters was his practice. And sure, he’s done plenty of shouting, interrupting, and lying to reporters, so maybe it was like that a little. But I don’t think you can lower the bar enough for Trump.

The bar is already low for Trump. When he gives a speech and says something that’s not entirely idiotic racist, and manages not to shit himself, pundits express what a wonderful speech it was. How eloquent. How presidential. But if another politician had given that same speech, they’d wonder if the speaker had received a brain transplant from an illiterate cow.

Of course the campaign lied to us because Donald Trump did prepare. It’s understandable they’d lie to us on this…

Something I Missed …


By Nicholas Kristof, Opinion Columnist … Harmed the USA:
1. salute to violent extremists
2. seed doubt on election results
3. laughingstock of the world … is this winning?

Filosofa's Word

I wrote about Tuesday night’s debate yesterday afternoon, and I don’t want to seem to be beleaguering the topic, but there was something I missed … something crucial, I think.  Due to having only about 10% of my hearing, I rely heavily on closed-captioning, but in live events such as the debates, the captioning is by necessity a few seconds behind and sometimes more.  This is why I rarely watch such events.  I thought I picked up on the key parts of the debate, but I missed the part where Trump said, “Proud boys, stand back and stand by.”  This morning, it was quickly brought to my attention, and even republicans are condemning Trump for this blatantly racist call for potential violence.

I would like to share with you this morning, Nicholas Kristof’s take on the implications of Trump’s statement, as well as a couple other observations.  Please take…

SPEAKING AND LISTENING

“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”

To Start the Day …. “🍂🍁 ‘Hello, Welcome October’ 🍁🍂 …. “!!


~~October 1, 2020~~

WELCOME OCTOBER

A new day, a new morning, a new month!

Cool mornings, cool days, soothing atmosphere … in my mind.

How I miss normal, peaceful times … balm to the soul!

October is here, and in the Northern Hemisphere, that often means the days are flush with falling leaves, chilling weather, and growing anticipation for the holiday season.

The tenth month by our Gregorian calendarOctober shares a root with octopus and octagon – the Latin octo and Greek okto, meaning “eight.”
