Our Disingenuous American Congress

This week the US House passed a resolution condemning the genocide of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire…….intended to be a thumb in the eye of the Turks for their incursion into the Kurdish area of northern Syria after BMT abandoned the Kurds, our allies who lost 10,000 men and women fighting with the USA to quell the ISIL

One Representative voted “Present”…. Ilhan Omar, and now she is catching hell for not voting Yes.  I stand with her.

This resolution will do nothing to help the Kurds and only has pissed off the Turks.  But there is a much larger reason for my standing with Rep. Omar:

Where are the similar resolutions against China, for the genocide in Tibet?  And right now, the “re-eduation” camps of over a million Uyghers, indigenous Muslims of China?

BUT, what really galls me is the failure of the United States to formally and officially apologize to African Americans for the over 400 years of slavery and the continuing oppression of Blacks in this Country!

Then there is our penal system, which has the greatest number of incarcerated humans in the world, with a very disproportionate number people of color.

Come on Speaker Pelosi, let’s get real ok!

Politrix is NOT Humanity!!!

If You Want to Know What “Whiteness” Really Is – Check out First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas

If the reader doesn’t already know what “whiteness” is,  I will trust your curiosity will motivate you to do some research on the web.  I am not referring to the “how white a white bed sheet is,” if you need a clue.

If there is a bastion of whiteness in America today, one such would be white evangelical churches, and FBC of Dallas ranks at the top:   a current pastor who fully supports Trump, and a prior pastor who for some 50 years railed against integration.  Therefore, I will extend the rubric of whiteness to just plain ol’ racism in this case.

One of the mega churches in Dallas, one that Billy Graham had his membership in although he didn’t live in Texas, this church was founded in the mid-1800’s, and its members no doubt represented the mainstream and City leaders through the last 150 years.  And, let’s keep in mind Dallas had the largest KKK membership in the Nation during the 1920’s, routinely beating, and lynching Blacks.  What a history to be proud of.

Is it a mystery that Blacks who have attended and joined such white evangelical churches have left them in droves in recent times, given these churches NEVER condemn any atrocity or policy that is inflicted on African Americans and people of color…. for instance, police murdering black and brown men and women seemingly at will and almost never being indicted?  One black woman’s story I read, said Whites in her big white church didn’t even know the name Travon Martin, while she herself was losing sleep about the boy’s murder; however, I conjecture these same people knew the name Colin Kaepernick!

If there ever was a more non-Christian group of people on Earth than white evangelicals, I would not even want to know who really.  Like I said recently in a post, I believe in multiverses, and the consciousness of these people are definitely not in my universe.

99% of evangelicals polled say they support Trump, even now, with all the EVIL he continues to sew throughout the world.  How can that be?  Has to be another universe.

News FLASH! “2020 Election Prediction”

The readers may feel I am going way out on a limb, but here is the scoop:

It makes perfect sense to me that the election will pit Elizabeth Warren against Mitt Romney!

We just saw rich Mitt step out front and center to roundly condemn Trump on his sellout of the Kurdish people.  Rick Perry just cut and ran away from his Secretary of Energy post, too.  So on the GOP side it will be those two and maybe one other vying for the next term.  And, it is increasingly clear, at least to me, that Warren will win the Dem nomination:  Biden has too much baggage, little support from younger voters, and is totally out of touch with issues that are very important to younger Black voters.  Other than Warren, the other candidates do not have attributes that add up to being able to take the nomination.  Warren would be our first female president, and I believe without being sexist, that counts for a lot.

Warren has plans, and has for years shown her tenacity and ferociousness in taking on Big Money.  While she needs to figure out how she pays for everything she is putting forth, I am sure she can build that case, juxtaposed with the GOP robber barons and rich man subsidies.

Personally I like all of our Dem candidates, and could see any of them taking high level posts later in a new Admin.  But I believe more and more Warren has the real key to victory.  I will vote for who ever is nominated, unlike my sitting out the 2016 when Dem’s rigged it for HRC.

Now, about BMT….Bottomless Moral Turpitude, aka that which occupies the Oval Office…..I predict he will be impeached and tried and convicted.  It will be the stupidest thing Mitch McConnell ever did to try and block the trial given the preponderance of solid evidence.  Mitch is dumb, but not just stupid as a stump!

So, my prediction again is …….

“Corporations are people”…..Mitt

“Big corporations have money and power to make sure every rule breaks their way; people have voices and votes to push back.”…..Elizabeth

 

No, Donald….It’s YOUR World That’s Upside Down!

Fortunately GRAVITY only works in the real world, not your invented world Donald (aka….BMT…Bottomless Moral Turpitude).  So all the truth will just fall out of your bizarre phantasmagoria universe, where absolutely NOTHING is as your fast mouth and little, fast hands attempt to convince your ignorant base it is.

Every day we gleefully witness your invented reality crumbling around you.

We all do need to pray, however, that it crumbles before you can further destroy OUR world!

TELL HIM HOW THE COW EATS THE CABBAGE SPEAKER PELOSI !

Change Gonna Come!

As we look toward the coming week, the soul sustenance all good folks need is to have faith in the timelessly proven adage, “a change is going to come.”  Nothing in this universe, no phenomenon, even what so many call God, is inherently unchanging.

Our mission this week, as the last and all those ahead, is to put our prayers and shoulders into adding to the slow momentum that carries morality arching toward the positive.  If all good people push at the same time, it does make a difference!

So today let us gather our wisdom, organize our spiritual energy, and recommit to affecting positive change ahead.

All that is happening as a result of those who are ignorant, those who hate, and those who are confused, will move on down the river, albeit slowly, and will be dissolved in the mighty sea.  There is only one ocean, and there is only one humanity.

Best we all began to learn that.

I leave you with Sam Cooke’s immortal song,

The Phantasmagoria of GOP Bullshit

If you could integrate the special effects we see in films depicting what it’s “like” to go through a worm hole in space, with the dancing crystals of an old school kaleidoscope, the total visuals would not even come close to BMT’s hourly stream of bullshit. (BMT…..Bottomless Moral Turpitude, aka that which occupies the Oval Office).  He and his minions have the bullshit down to a truly unique, sparking, effervescent art form, rivaling any of Michaelangelo’s works.  No doubt one day BMT will figure out a way to monetize this as a new revenue stream, bottle it in fake gold vases with his logo on the side, packaged and left bedside at all his hotels.

All we can pray for is that Nancy’s “bull shit busters” are more effective than Ghosts Busters!

Sadly, while I attempt to inject a bit of levity into this stinky smorgasborg he lays out with his Tweets and proclamations, 100’s of times a day, all this manure is contributing to greenhouse gassing that may kill us all if we don’t corral him soon.
