Something to Think About …. “⚖️ Separated? Naw …. Pack the Court? Isn’t It Already Packed?” ⚖️ …. “!!

SEPARATION

I’m kinda confused! Separation of Church and State? I thought that was the deal.

Pack the court – SCOTUS? It seems to me it already is packed.

Pray do tell!

=============================

Separation of church and state” is paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson and used by others in expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

Court packing” is the majority party adding justices to the court in order to get the political results they desire. As history shows us, once a country does this, the independence of the judiciary is over.

You no longer have “Constitutional rights.”

You have whatever “rights” the majority party lets you have.

No Nukes For You


This is how this post begins … “Next time you hear some MAGA lunatic claim President Biden has dementia or lost his mind, can’t tell his sister and wife apart, occasionally thinks Vice-President Harris is the president, can’t open doors, is handled, controlled, or likes ice cream too much (I still don’t get how liking ice cream is a sign of mental decline, but I guess you gotta create something out of nothing), or better yet…the next time a United States Senator pushes a conspiracy theory there’s a mute button to silence the president…just remember, nobody has taken the nuclear codes away from President Biden.” — it only gets better as you read!!

Next time you hear some MAGA lunatic claim President Biden has dementia or lost his mind, can’t tell his sister and wife apart, occasionally thinks Vice-President Harris is the president, can’t open doors, is handled, controlled, or likes ice cream too much (I still don’t get how liking ice cream is a sign of mental decline, but I guess you gotta create something out of nothing), or better yet…the next time a United States Senator pushes a conspiracy theory there’s a mute button to silence the president…just remember, nobody has taken the nuclear codes away from President Biden.

Do you know why nobody has taken away our president’s access to the nuclear codes? Because he’s not fucking crazy. Also, he hasn’t already tried to destroy our democracy, overturn an election he lost, or remain in power and becoming a fascist dictator through a coup…but yeah…let’s worry about Joe Biden’s mental…

KABUL GRAFFITI STREET ARTIST

I first learned about this amazing street artist as the withdrawal by American forces began in Kabul, Afghanistan. Shamsia, it seems to me, became a local icon, I guess. Her art seems to have graced many of the streets where she lives.

Yesterday, she posted the picture included above and this message in ther Twitter account.

Since the news about the withdrawal, I’ve been aware of some of the things the Taliban does … among these, they destroyed all the musical instruments in a local school. Musicians and artists are worried about what will happen to them.

I’m concerned about Shamsia, now more than ever, as her ‘murals’ seem to be erased. I’m saving the paintings she’s posted on Facebook as a humble way to safeguard them.

Hassani was born in 1988 and spent her childhood in Iran; her parents had temporarily immigrated there, from Kandahar, Afghanistan during the war.

#Silence … #Sadness … #Regression … in Kabul!!

What happens at twilight!! … — Fyodor Tyutchev, from Twilight; (Translated by Avrahm Yarmolinsky). Written in 1835.

Live & Learn

Soft the dove-hued shadows mingle,
Color fades, sound droops to sleep.
Life and motion melt to darkness
Swaying murmurs far and deep.
But the night moth’s languid flitting
Stirs the air invisibly:
Oh, the hour of wordless longing;
I in all, and all in me.

Twilight—tranquil, brooding twilight,
Course through me, serene and smooth;
Quiet, languid, fragrant twilight,
Flood all depths, all sorrows soothe,
Every sense in dark and cooling
Self-forgetfulness immerse,—
Grant that I may taste extinction
In the dreaming universe.

Fyodor Tyutchev, from Twilight; (Translated by Avrahm Yarmolinsky). Written in 1835.
