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.

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 …

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Never Harness our Tongues …. !!”


~~June 23, 2017~~ 

TAINO QUOTE 

“They say it came from Africa, carried in the screams of the enslaved; that it was the death bane of the Taínos, uttered just as one world perished and another began; that it was a demon drawn into Creation through the nightmare door that was cracked open in the Antilles.

Fukú americanus, or more colloquially, fukú – generally a curse or doom of some kind

specifically the Curse and the Doom of the New World.

No matter what its name or provenance, it is believed that the arrival of Europeans on Hispaniola unleashed fukú on the world, and we’ve all been in the shit ever since.”

LONGEST DAY, SHORTEST NIGHT

Summer solstice 2017 in Northern Hemisphere was at 12:24 AM on Wednesday, June 21, 2017
All times are in Eastern Time.

~SUMMER SOLSTICE~

The summer solstice (or estival solstice), also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographic pole on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits.

On the summer solstice, Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. This happens twice each year (once in each hemisphere), when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or south pole.
