REST AND RECREATION

We are finallyiy leaving our lockdown caccoon … venturing out! After almost 1 1/2 years we are going away!! I must confess there’s a bit of hesitation.

Gotta go back home and check how things are over there.

Negative COVID tests, fully vaccinated, complying with all the regulations enforced on the Island. Passports in hand as ID, drivers’ license and all other docs.

I don’t think I’ll be able to post much and, least of all, reblog!

Just know I’m here, in this space, and I will be checking what’s happening.

Will be back soon!!

False Equivalency …


Post is so very important in all senses of the word … yet – THIS!! … “We should all oppose the indiscriminate firing of rockets by Palestinians into Israel and suicide bombings as war crimes, We should also be aware of a huge disparity between the industrial violence carried out by Israel against innocent Palestinians and the minimal acts of violence capable of being waged by groups such as Hamas.”

Gaza – 2014

I have been listening to all of the words used by Republicans, Democrats and the MSM to describe Israel’s current assault on Gaza; the worst since 2014. lasting 51 days, killing over 2,200 Palestinians including 551 children.

The words are the lie of false equivalency.

Israel, by employing its military machine against an occupied population that does not have mechanized units, an air force, navy, anti-aircraft missiles, heavy artillery and command-and-control, not to mention a U.S. commitment to provide a $38 billion defense aid package over the next decade, is not exercising “the right to defend itself.” It is carrying out mass murder.

Gaza is the world’s largest open-air prison, where more than 2 million Palestinians exist on the edge of starvation, struggle to find clean water, get perhaps 4 hours a day of electricity  and endure constant Israeli artillery and air strikes.

What are the crimes…

Louisiana’s Finest


Can’t forget this one! … #SayHisName#RonaldGreene … this is really bad!! … “Yeah, but the release of the footage probably isn’t nearly as unfair to the Greene family as a bunch of Louisiana State Troopers killing Ronald Greene on the side of a highway and then lying about the cause of death for two years.”

You can’t claim it’s a just a few bad apples among America’s police when we see time after time again, entire departments engage in cover-ups.

When cops in Buffalo shoved a man to the ground busting his head open, the department shoved it aside. When cops in Minnesota arrested a black reporter, the department issued a statement that was proven false by the live footage of the arrest. In Louisiana, several cops kill a black driver, and the department covers it up for two years.

In 2019, several Louisiana State Police officers pulled Ronald Greene over near Monroe (where I was mostly raised). The cops tased, kicked, punched him in the face and dragged Greene while his hands and ankles were shackled. They left him alone on the ground, bleeding for nine minutes to suffer. He died minutes after arriving at a hospital. The state police told his family he…

All Quiet On The Eastern Front


This is the precise truth!! … another eye-opener for me! Disappointment … “Is that not what the US has been doing for 50 years … ’quiet diplomacy’ equates to do nothing and leave status quo in place. This will do nothing to calm the chaos that has been created in the Middle East. The US needs to step up and stop bowing to the almighty dollar and do what they preach in front of the cameras.”

In Saner Thought

After almost 2 weeks of intense fighting between Israel and Hamas and many lives lost an agreement has been reached…..

Israel on Thursday announced a cease-fire in the bruising 11-day war against Hamas militants that caused widespread destruction in the Gaza Strip and brought life in much of Israel to a standstill, per the AP. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced the cease-fire after a late-night meeting of his Security Cabinet. The statement said the timing of the cease-fire was still being worked out. One member of the Security Cabinet said it would take effect at 2am, roughly three hours after the announcement. A Hamas official, meanwhile, said the declaration of a truce was a defeat for Netanyahu and “a victory to the Palestinian people.”

Ali Barakeh, a member of Hamas’ Arab and Islamic relations bureau, said the militants will remain on alert until they hear from mediators. Once…
