  1. So God nailed the followup shot: https://mobile.twitter.com/LokiLouResists/status/1268377439320883200 (Please click. 16 seconds. Sound on. It made my day.)

  3. Hey Donald, live your birthday like it’s your last! With any luck that’ll be the case.
  4. Just think about the implications of the fact that the nation is coming apart at the seams yet Donald Trump’s sole focus is on his re-election.
  5. It strikes me that the demonstrations in major cities in Europe and elsewhere seem to dwarf those in the U.S. It is heartening. But let's step it up U.S. I'm going on a bike ride with a couple friends this weekend. Any word on marches or other activities for downtown DC this weekend? We will plan a route to join whatever is planned.
  6. Every response turns immediately into talking about Donald Trump. And there is ZERO thought into the issue at hand. Canned campaign rhetoric is all he can muster during the most fraught time in the last 80 to 100 years of our nation's history. It is maddeningly inarticulate, narcissistic, and empty. He is an empty shell of a man, a dolt who is supremely ill-equipped intellectually or emotionally to be in any position of leadership in any capacity outside of his grifting family business.
  7. There's a Toad the Wet Sprocket joke in there somewhere....

    Nationwide Removal of Confederate Statues

    The Myth of the Kindly General Lee The legend of the Confederate leader’s heroism and decency is based in the fiction of a person who never existed. https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-myth-of-the-kindly-general-lee?utm_source=pocket-newtab The strangest part about the continued personality cult of Robert E. Lee is how few of the qualities his admirers profess to see in him he actually possessed. Memorial Day has the tendency to conjure up old arguments about the Civil War. That’s understandable; it was created to mourn the dead of a war in which the Union was nearly destroyed, when half the country rose up in rebellion in defense of slavery. In 2017, the removal of Lee’s statue in New Orleans has inspired a new round of commentary about Lee, not to mention protests on his behalf by white supremacists. The myth of Lee goes something like this: He was a brilliant strategist and devoted Christian man who abhorred slavery and labored tirelessly after the war to bring the country back together. There is little truth in this. ... even if one conceded Lee’s military prowess, he would still be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans in defense of the South’s authority to own millions of human beings as property because they are black. Lee’s elevation is a key part of a 150-year-old propaganda campaign designed to erase slavery as the cause of the war and whitewash the Confederate cause as a noble one. That ideology is known as the Lost Cause, and as historian David Blight writes, it provided a “foundation on which Southerners built the Jim Crow system.” More at link below: (Beat his slaves then rubbed the wounds with salt water, broke up families of slaves he owned - a particularly cruel thing to do. During the war, in Pennsylvania he kidnapped freedman and sent them south to slavery, massacred black Union soldiers trying to surrender. Post-war, clear writings of white supremacy, "blacks lacked the intelligence to vote", as President of Washington University, looked the other way as students formed a KKK chapter and kidnapped and raped black schoolgirls and turned a blind eye to other crimes against blacks, including two attempted lynchings, https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-myth-of-the-kindly-general-lee?utm_source=pocket-newtab Time to pull the statues down. . .
