WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION?

IT HAD TO BE A WOMAN

I’ve used this picture before.

I believed in the power of it and my feelings reflect hers without doubt. If I had the opportunity of doing this, I would’ve done the same.

She continues to be a ‘shero’ to me.

Hang in there, Juli Briskman, better things will come your way!

The picture, snapped by a White House photographer traveling with the president as he left his golf course in Sterling, Va., went viral almost immediately. News outlets picked up the story when it appeared in a White House pool report. Late-night talk show hosts told jokes about the encounter and people on social media began hailing the unidentified woman as a “she-ro,” using the hashtag #Her2020.
The woman’s name is Juli Briskman.

Her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, wasn’t so happy about the photo. They fired her over it.

Asked what she was thinking when she saw Trump’s motorcade roll up next to her, Briskman said it was a gut reaction to flip him off.
“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” she said. “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”
I flipped off the motorcade a number of times,” she added.

Briskman, a Democrat, said she plans to look for a new job with an advocacy group that she believes in, like Planned Parenthood or PETA.

“In some ways, I’m doing better than ever,” she said. “I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled.

This was an opportunity for me to say something.”

Despite getting fired, she said she has no regrets about the attention her public show of displeasure with Drumpf received.

In fact, she said she’s happy to be an image of protest that resonates with many Americans.

~HAD TO BE A WOMAN~

Hail to the chief: cyclist gives Drumpf the middle finger

The ‘so-called president’ of the United States is used to being saluted but a cyclist in Virginia put her own particular slant on the tradition on Saturday when she was overtaken by Drumpf’s motorcade.

The woman on her bike was photographed raising her middle finger when Drumpf’s vehicles passed her on their way out from the Drumpf National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac river, on the outskirts of Washington DC.

She repeated the gesture when she caught up with the motorcade.

As noted in the White House pool report, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Drumpf National Golf Club at 3:12 PM, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign.

Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger.

“The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction.

Motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.”

Social media users responded to the image of the cyclist with messages such as “Heroine!” and “Her2020”.

A PICTURE, A MEME SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS

In light of the recent violent and fatal events in Charlottesville, Virginia, my blogger friend Martin created this graphic.

These are deep words which ring so true and evoke strong emotions. 

I’m honored and proud to share it here with you.

NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD

~Fiddling while Rome burns~
Meaning
To occupy oneself with unimportant matters and neglect priorities during a crisis

There’s not an obvious crisis right now except for the fact that he’s president. Note the numbers below to realize that playing golf is more important than leading the country. And, to top is off, the golf courses are his properties. Profits direct to his pocket. Well done, America!

Drumpf, through his Drumpf Organization, owns or operates 17 different golf courses around the world, including 12 in the United States, two in Dubai, one in Ireland and two in Scotland. One of those U.S. golf courses in close to his Mar-a-Lago private club in West Palm Beach, Fla., and that’s where Drumpf plays the bulk of his golf as ‘so-called president’, spending more time of late at his golf club in Sterling, Va., about 20 miles from the White House.

How many times has Drumpf played golf as President of the United States?

Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Drumpf has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses 35 times since the inauguration, and that’s as of July 3.

He previously was on pace to visit his golf clubs more than 650 times in an eight-year presidency. He’s currently on track to play 480 rounds in office over eight years, assuming he wins re-election and completes both terms.

(god forbid)

As of July 3, he has spent nearly 22% of his days in office at one of his golf properties to play for some portion of the day.

YELLOW SUBMARINE 

And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine …. 

Full speed ahead Mr. Boatswain, full speed ahead
Full speed ahead it is, Sergeant.
Cut the cable, drop the cable
Aye, Sir, aye
Captain, captain …

STONEWALL UPRISING

~HONORING THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO CAME BEFORE ME~

I was a teenager at this time.

I was barely 18 going on 19.

I wasn’t sure about my sexuality yet I knew I was different. I was living in Puerto Rico and cut away from these happenings in New York.

With time, I have come to learn about the importance of this uprising and I honor those who came before me and cleared the way that allowed me to accept and cherish my sexuality and live a fulfilling life, the way I am …

for I was born this way!

Forty-eight years ago today, New York City police began harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough.

~Human Rights Campaign~

The Stonewall Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.
