Fascist Funder William Regnery Dead; A Grave to Piss On I'm not one who does not speak ill of the dead. This maggot feeder white supremacist fascism funder deserves to rot in hell and be reviled and his grave desecrated. It might even make urination a protected first amendment free speech right.

Archaic Marijuana Witch Hunt Grounds BLACK Gold Medal Favorite Olympian Sha'Carri Richardson This is totaly outrageous. Sha'Carri Richardson tested positive for marijuana and the testing org, The United States Anti-Doping Agency. The NYTimes reported that her win in a key qualifying event was invalidated because of her pot use. That lowered her ranking AND made her ineligible to participate in the early parts of the Olympic games.

A Memorial Day for the Indigenous-- Reframing the Colonizers Today is Memorial day, a time to remember our lost soldiers. I propose we also remember the scores of millions of people killed by colonization. Or maybe we should have another day to remember them, and to remember and reframe the history of the psychopathic savagery with which mostly European colonizers killed aboriginal indigenous peoples and destroyed their cultures.

Updating My Laws of Religion in Light of Recent Events So much of religion has been unworthy of respect, has been profoundly toxic to humanity, justifying horrendous inhumanities. We need to set rules and figure out ways to get the people who practice such Devil's religions to shift to practices that are tolerant and respectful of other faiths, to beliefs that do not need to include stories or messaging that suggest their faith or god is superior. This can be done.

Myanmar Treats Protesters as Criminals, Kill over 400, As GOP Legislators Attempt To Do In Myanmar, the half million strong army, the Tatmadaw, described as "a robotic rank of warriors bred to kill," according the NYTimes, has killed over 420 protesters. They are killing their own people of Myanmar, people protesting for freedom and justice. Do they seem like monsters? And yet, in the US, state after Republican-run state is passing laws criminalizing protest or legalizing the killing of protesters--

A Way to motivate Vaccination Acceptance and Free Us From Masks. This is a thought experiment that might work, but might also cause considerable consternation. I would rather not wear a mask if I don't have to, once I'm two weeks out from my second vaccine shot. It would be nice if a badge could be issued, so if you are vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask. That way people could choose, mask or vaccine. I have a feeling it would motivate a lot of people.

The Dire Danger of Biden's Acceptance of Can't-do-ist Response to $15 Minimum The truth is out that if Joe Biden wanted it to, the parliamentarian's rejection of the inclusion in the pandemic relief bill would be a minor bump on the road to passage. If he takes after Hillary and embraces can't-do-ism as an excuse for not doing what he could do, then the Democratic party is toast.

The "Can't Include $15 Minimum Wage" Lie that VP Harris Could Beat Now is the time to call Biden's BS and shout out loud for Harris to have the guts to appeal the Senate parliamentarian's $15 minimum wage decision. If WallStreetBets Redditors can take on the big hedge funds with their Game Stop plays, the people who believe in the $15 minimum wage should be able to put enough pressure on the Biden Administration to follow through on promises.

Did Twitter Save Trump from Impeachment Right after the January 6th uprising, Twitter shut down Donald Trump's Twitter account. I'm wondering if that rescued him from being impeached.

Movie Review: The Map of Tiny Perfect Things I love movies that touch my heart and bring tears to my eyes with touching scenes. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things delivers on both accounts.It's no accident it was released on Valentines day, since it's a sweet, touching romance story with an almost unique twist, and it expands on what may be the start of a new genre. It's a take-off on the classic movie, Groundhogs Day

Pay for Biden's $1.9 Trillion Relief Plan With Dynasty Taxes Republican word framers like Frank Luntz calls them "death taxes." I call them "Dynasty taxes"-- taxes on inheritances that prevent one ultra wealthy dynastic leader to continue his dynasty with future generations. Trump and Mitch McConnell put through a bill that cut those taxes substantially. I say that Joe Biden and the Democrats should take all of them back and then some, to pay for the package.

YOLO Not Just GameStop, Also Texas, MAGA and the GOP The explosion of interest in the rise and fall of GameStop stock, caused by the millions of Redditors on WallStreetBets, is based on YOLO philosophy. But YOLO is nothing new. I'm wondering about other examples of YOLO thinking, particularly in politics and leadership.
