AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION

I must confess that I’d heard about this organization before.

It wasn’t after the November 2016 election that I became a member.

They support all rights of the people who seem to be oppressed during the current American ‘rule’.

They represent me.

I stand with the ACLU! 

I thank the ACLU!

Comedian Jimmy Fallon loves to make his celebrity guests partake in the hilarious “Wheel of Musical Impressions” segment of The Tonight Show.

It’s a fun game where a random singer is paired up with a random song title. Jimmy’s guest goes head to head with him to see who is better at doing a successful impression of the artist singing that song. The combinations that the “wheel” comes up with are pretty wild, and it almost always has everyone in stitches.

Some guests can do some pretty amazing impressions.

Here you have Céline Dion!

KILL THE RELEASE

This is a movie which my grand-daughter Angelika and I have been waiting for.

The controversy generated about the mentioned scene is much ado about nothing.

It’s all in the ‘mind’ of the beholder.

It’s a must watch movie.

We will soon go to the movies.

The best way to understand is to let Randy explain it himself.

ENJOY!

Beauty and the Beast is a 2017 American musical romantic fantasy film directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

A co-production between Walt Disney Pictures and Mandeville Films, the film is a live-action remake of Disney’s 1991 animated film of the same name, itself an adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s eighteenth-century fairy tale.

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirlBBGoldSwirl

‘Beauty and the Beast’s ‘gay moment’ may have been much ado about nothing

So what exactly caused all this controversy?

The “gay moment” that Condon was referring to is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot in the film’s final seconds.

LeFou, the villain Gaston’s side-kick, dances with a man in the final ball sequence just before the credits roll. There are oblique references to LeFou’s sexuality over the course of the film. He is portrayed as having something of an unrequited crush on Gaston, having euphemistic conversations about their relationship and looking longingly at him during the song Gaston.

BREATHE AND PUSH

I found this video yesterday.

As it frequently happens, I found it by chance.

Scrolling through Facebook.

It’s a bit long but it’s worth every minute.

It’s a very badly needed message.

This is a video from New Years Eve 2016.

It applies more and more … as these 50+ days of ‘leadership‘ have gone by.

I think it’s a gem!

Always hang on to hope.

~This is the message I have been craving to hear~

My ears ache after listening to line after negative line in the news, reading the political drama on Facebook, and reading my family’s and friends’ opinions.

These words are weighing me down with heavy, uneasy feelings about the future.

We’ve marched, signed petitions, and called our senators, and the news is not changing. People are tired. I am tired. Life doesn’t seem fair.

We need a pep talk – and I’ve found one.

Valerie Kaur‘s powerful and uplifting look at our world today is so refreshing in this chaotic climate.

As an award-winning filmmaker, civil rights lawyer, media commentator, Sikh activist and interfaith leader, Kaur’s work of storytelling inspires social change. This video from New Year’s Eve has the call for 2017. I needed this passionate and beautiful speech. Hers is a realistic voice asking me a valid question:

What if this is our nation’s great transition?

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, and the basic Sikh belief is represented in the phrase Ik Onkar meaning “One God.”

Sikhism was founded in the Punjab region in India in the 15th century by Guru Nanak Dev. Sikhism broke from Hinduism due, in part, to its rejection of the caste system.

SIKH SYMBOL

It consists of three weapons and a circle: the khanda, two kirpans and the chakkar which is a circle.

It is the military emblem of the Sikhs.

It is also part of the design of the Nishan Sahib. A double edged khanda (sword) is placed at the top of a Nishan Sahib flag as an ornament or finial.

Pentatonix’s Brand New Spin On John Lennon’s Classic

Putting Tears In Everyone’s Eyes

Everyone knows the John Lennon song, “Imagine” – but Pentatonix puts their own spin on it with a powerful message that everyone can take to heart! Their voices, coupled with the moving lyrics first penned by Lennon in May 1971, come together to make a rendition of the song that everyone should hear at least once in their life!

Lennon’ inspiration for “Imagine” came about when he tried to envision a world with only peace, and without the division among all people.

The song was released later that year in October, and it was an instant hit.

Since it’s release, “Imagine” has been covered by countless artists and groups hoping to share the same message of inclusion and love.

Such is the case with Pentatonix’s chilling version!

A Day Without A Woman

On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.

In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women’s March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system – while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.

We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting.

We believe in gender justice.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

I CALL ON A GRAND JURY

DRUMPF’S RUSSIA CONNECTIONS

Grand jury is a legal body empowered to conduct official proceedings and investigate potential criminal conduct, and determine whether criminal charges should be brought. A grand jury may compel the production of documents and compel sworn testimony of witnesses to appear before it. Grand jury is separate from the courts, which do not preside over its functioning.

~Wikipedia~

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #39.

~TRUMP’S RUSSIA INTEREST SPARKED IN THE SOVIET YEARS~

DECEMBER 13, 2016 by Michael Stott and Catherine Belton
The Republican President’s links to Russia are a mix of bling, business and bluster spanning 30 years. This account in five sections traces Drumpf’s fascination for Russia from its beginnings in Soviet times through deals done in the Putin era to Drumpf’s appointment of a slew of Russia-connected advisers during the US presidential campaign. It concludes with outside views on Drumpf’s long-standing Russia ties and the ‘so-called’ president’s own explanations.

“Maybe there is no hacking but they always blame Russia and the reason is because they think they’re trying to tarnish me with Russia.

I know about Russia, but I know nothing about the inner workings of Russia. I have no businesses, I have no loans from Russia.”

~Drumpf’s Quote~

Meryl Streep Responds to Drumpf Calling Her “Over-rated”

Meryl Streep likes to load her dishwasher. She likes to sit quietly and read. She likes to garden. Most of all, as she told the audience at the Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala on Saturday night, February 11, she likes to “stay the fuck home.”

But the actress, who, along with late-night host Seth Meyers, was the recipient of the HRC Ally for Equality Award, left the house to stand in support of her LGBTQ friends in the Drumpf era.

She said all of this during her speech without even mentioning the president’s name.

The legendary actress, who previously delivered a fiery take-down of Drumpf at the Golden Globes (also without saying his name), told attendees at the HRC gala that in the end, the current administration could serve as a valuable wake-up call.

“If we live through this precarious moment . . . if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we have much to thank this president for, because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is,”

she said to the crowd gathered at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Streep experienced Drumpf’s famously thin skin after her Globes oration in January when he tweeted that the actress was “over-rated.”

The actress and honoree also had a response for Drumpf’s claim.

“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated, and currently, over-berated actress . . . of my generation,” she joked.

“But that is why you invited me here! Right?”
