THE ONLY WAY IS FORWARD

Too much work, effort, blood sweat and tears have been invested in LGBTQ equality.

There’s no going back.

This isn’t the time to rest.

The new Republican Administration, lead by Drumpf, is launching an overt attack on the LGBTQ community.

It’s coming!

We won’t go back in the closet!

We are here to stay!

By all measures, 2015 will be remembered as a banner year for LGBT rights in the United States

The Supreme Court gave gays and lesbians the right to wed.

Popular culture and public opinion continued to increasingly accept transgender identities and same-sex relationships. Corporate advocacy beat back state religious-freedom laws that would have provided a defense for discrimination. And there are more than 450 openly gay elected officials currently serving across the country.

But backers don’t expect the good news to continue, at least in the short term.

ATROCITIES AGAINST NATIVE AMERICANS

This is a topic which isn’t really taught in schools.

I went to a private, Catholic school in Puerto Rico, and don’t remember any teaching about the genocide of the Native Americans.

For that matter, I wasn’t taught about the atrocities committed to the indigenous people of Puerto Rico either.

It is now, after my retirement, that I have plenty of time on my hands, that I’m catching up to history.

This is a topic that has always been interesting to me.

As I keep abreast of the event in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, I’ve been looking for information about this topic and many other related ones.

#StandingRockSiouxTribe

#NoDAPL

It’s a shame that we are so consumed with the presidential campaign and the antics of one of the candidates, that many other events are taking place without the media informing viewers about them.

Seems that we have to do the investigating ourselves.

Guess that is a sign of adulthood.

We have to do things ourselves.

Numerous atrocities against Native Americans span the hundreds of years from the first arrival of European explorers to the modern era under a wide range of circumstances.

Today there are over 500 Native American tribes in the United States, each with a distinct culture, way of life and history. Even today, Native Americans face large challenges to cope with the disadvantages history has left them and ongoing cases of discrimination.

10 million+ estimated number of Native Americans living in land that is now the United States when European explorers first arrived in the 15th century
Less than 300,000 estimated number of Native Americans living in the United States around 1900
5.2 million identified as American Indian or Alaska Native in the 2010 census

bline

Colonization
While the Native Americans’ history began thousands of years ago, their European encounter started with one man.

Determined to find a direct route from Europe to Asia, Christopher Columbus stumbled on the Americas in 1492.

… and the rest is history!!

~~American Holocaust~~

The Genocide of Native Americans/Crimes against humanity

~~Published on Mar 29, 2015~~

Where Did Largest Genocide In The World Happen?

Most people would answer Germany, and the Jewish Holocaust. Actually though, the largest genocide happened in the USA, with the native American Indians, with an estimated 60 million to 120 million indigenous people killed.

American Holocaust

60 To 120 Million Native Inhabitants Exterminated By Illegal ‘Settlers’, After Living On Continent For 200,000 Years In Sustainable Way.
(the biggest genocide in the history of humankind).

A 200,000 YEAR OLD CIVILIZATION WAS ‘DISAPPEARED’ AND 500 NATIONS WERE WIPED OUT

AMERICAN WAS BORN IN GENOCIDE, BATHED IN MURDER, RACISM, BLOOD AND VIOLENCE

~Martin Luther King Jr.~

“Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.

Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy.

We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it.

Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.”
~Martin Luther King Jr.~

INNOCENCE LOST

While the Rio Olympics are going on, while the incessant “bombardment” of inane politics goes on, while children are getting ready to start this school’s term, while politicians continue their unwarranted push to dominate the little domains they oversee, this child suffers.

This child’s world has been up-ended.

He seems to be in shock, he’s alone, he’s hurt, he’s bleeding.

It this was humanity has come to?

Multiply that by thousands and you will see the results of humanity’s effort to dominate others.

Our sad reality!

CNN’s Kate Bolduan Begins to Cry While Sharing Video of Bloodied Syrian Child

~~Published on Aug 18, 2016~~

CNN’s Kate Bolduan is a reporter who asks tough questions and is often expressive and emphatic when she does it. Today, however, she was expressive in a very different way. While sharing a video of a five-year-old Syrian named Omran Daqneesh sitting in the back of an ambulance with blood and soot all over him, Bolduan was tasked with explaining that he and his family were pulled from the rubble that was once their house. She said that there had been an air strike — which is common, as the country has been embroiled in a violent civil war for years — but had to stop and compose herself a few times.

There is little point in describing her visceral reaction when you can watch it right here for yourself:

“What strikes me is we shed tears, but there are no tears here,” she observed as her voice cracked. “He doesn’t cry once. That little boy is in total shock. He’s stunned, inside his home one moment and the next, lost in the fury and the flurry of war and chaos.”

After sharing how many thousands have died in Aleppo, Syria, alone, she closed with, “This is Omran.

He’s alive.

We wanted you to know.”

At the end of the day .… “Labor Day Weekend …. Labor Movement”!!


LabDay

~~September 4, 2015~~ 

LABOR DAY WEEKEND …. LABOR MOVEMENT

I’ll be taking a few days off for this long weekend.

I didn’t want to “leave” without honoring the labor movement of old times.

They were the ones who laid the foundation to the prosperity which was once part of this country.

Unions were very important in setting the groundwork.

The pride, the strength and the stamina of this country was set there.

It’s about time to fight to get it back again.

I will be back soon.

Enjoy and be safe.

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September.

It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Clevelandfeared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Therefore, in 1887, the United States holiday was established in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.

History

In 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York. Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882,[3] after witnessing the annual labor festival held in Toronto, Canada. Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday on February 21, 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation’s trade unions for the previous several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers’ Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would be associated with the nascent socialist and anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers’ Day. All U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the territories have made it a statutory holiday.
