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.

~Twitter~

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.

A Royal Birthday …. “👑 ‘Happy 37th Birthday, Harry’ 👑 …. “!!

ANOTHER SPIN AROUND THE SUN

Today is a very special day for a special family in Montecito, California. The Duke of Sussex turned 37 years old today.

(THE DIRTY RASCAL!)

His life is shaping the way he has decided he wants it to be.

Only happiness, family life, wife and children … and all the good things that may come his way. I only wish him and his main ‘tribe’ the best!

Happy birthday, Ginger Harry, today and always!!

It’s another spin around the sun for Prince Harry!

The Duke of Sussex celebrated turning 37 on Wednesday alongside wife Meghan Markle and their two children, 2-year-old Archie and 3-month-old Lili.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex got another gift on Wednesday as they were named among TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year and featured among the cover stars, including Simone BilesKate Winslet and Billie Eilish.

“In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the duke and duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know,” wrote their good friend chef José Andrés wrote in the essay about their work as philanthropists and advocates.

“They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle.”

TIME MAGAZINGE COVER

(100 MOST INFUENTIAL PEOPLE)

I can’t deny it, I don’t want to deny it. I have a very soft spot in my heart for Harry and Meghan. I always had for the royals – for Diana and her boys. Yet, it’s these two amazingly wonderful people and their babies, who have entered my heart and anchored safely and surely in it.

I’ve read a lot about them, I’ve read their book, I watched all specials and movies on them that I can find.

This, IMHO, is a well deserved honor. In spite of what ‘the palace, the firm‘, may think, say or do, for me .. these are MY favorites!

“Springing into action is not the easy choice,” chef and humanitarian José Andrés, a two-time TIME100 honoree, writes in his tribute to Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Their actions this year not only prompted deep re-appraisals of British society and the monarchy’s place within it, but have also catalyzed essential conversations on topics from mental health to misinformation.

Our cover portrait, taken by Pari Dukovic, marks the first time the world-famous couple has formally posed together for a magazine cover shoot. “It captures their powerful dynamic as equal partners,” says Dilys Ng, who has photo-edited our TIME100 covers for the past four years.

Horrifying Fashion


IMHO — I think AOC wa amazing!! And the message got through, didn’t it?? … “The major point being missed is that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore a dress saying, “Tax the rich” to an event full of millionaires and billionaires. Jesus preached to prostitutes. And from the looks of this event, AOC preached to a bunch of whores too.”

I read comments by right-wing morons (I know…redundant) saying it was hypocritical for Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to attend a $35,000-per-ticket event in a very expensive dress with the words, “Tax the rich” on it. Republicans are very bad at comprehension and getting points.

Actor Michael Rapaport tweeted, “Custom TAX THE RICH dress while at the most elitist event in the world. @AOC will soon be rich with a ginormous production deal from somewhere & done with Politics, guarantee it. Stop treating ANY of these people like celebrities they are public servants and work for us.” I’m so glad Phoebe ditched his ass on Friends for shooting that bird. I’m also glad that shark ate him in Deep Blue Sea, which killed another bird.

Sean Hannity wrote on his blog, “BACKLASH: AOC Under Fire for Wearing ‘Tax the Rich’ Gown to NYC’s Ultra-Elite Met Gala.”

Sure, this event costs $35,000 to…

Extra Illegal In Texas

If Texas Governor Greg Abbott can eliminate all rapists from his state, then why hasn’t he already done it? This is the new thing for Republicans. Just say some incredibly stupid shit and your base will eat it up. You can’t try that nonsense with Democrats.

Greg Abbott has signed the bill basically banning abortions in Texas. It does allow abortions within the first six weeks, before most women know they’re pregnant. Abbott acted like that was plenty of time for someone to know they’re pregnant…not that he’d know from personal experience…which also gives another example of why men shouldn’t be legislating women’s bodies.

These motherfuckers don’t even understand how mysterious lady parts work, and they want to legislate it? That’s like regulating the internet and asking, “Is the internet on computers now?”.

When asked why Texas is going to force women to carry their rapists’ babies, Abbott said “Texas…
