A Tweet Or Two

****

Good question

So sad that they have to respond. (Same with Travyon Martin’s parents). Their son was horrifically murdered. There shouldn’t be a burden placed on them to respond to anything. Unfortunately, we all know why they have to

    Note: it appears new petitions to have the #47Traitors prosecuted are being started by the hour! Keep in touch on the WH petitions website, make sure you sign each. We can only sign once, but once on each pushes the numbers. And of course they can all be shared…
    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/ I do chuckle to see a petition to have Justin Bieber deported… LOL!

      Bobfr, there are many thousands more on the several other petitions being circulated.. we also need to get them out there by all our efforts, if they all reach their target, the million signatures will be an easy achievement.

    Ferguson is a hot topic again. PBO and AG Holder are being criticized. I heard someone say today that the KKK had confronted the protesters in the past. How do we know that it wasn’t a KKK that shot at the cops to stir things up or to somehow make a point about their dislike of the changes being made in Ferguson. The chief had said that the gunman was embedded within the protests. The protesters said the shots came from behind them. This just creates more tension around the country. SMDH

      No one knows who shot those cops, all we have is speculation and attempts to deflect blame from the epidemic of cops killing unarmed Black males. The “tension” between cops and minority communities is a decades old problem (police as occupying force instead public servants). The recent spike in police killings of unarmed Black males is a symptom of the larger issue of White racial anxiety which is reaching dangerous levels. The cop in Atlanta who murdered the unarmed, naked veteran who had mental problems should open up a lot of eyes to what is going on, i.e., Black lives don’t matter to these folks. Being Black is becoming a capital offense in this country. How the response to an obviously mental ill naked man is to use deadly force (not a baton, not a taser, not calling for backup) tells me that they are looking for an excuse to murder Black people (more restrain is shown toward a fucking alligator walking through a golf course than a Black man walking down the street). By the “logic” displayed by the Atlanta cop, the proper police response to a Black man threatening to jump from a rooftop would be to call in the snipers to shoot the man. There will never be any semblance of “equality” in this country until a Black life is deemed by society to be of equal value to a White life. This has never been the case in this country and it most certainly is not the case today. All of this racial shit stems from the mental gymnastics that the institution of slavery required of a White society that had/has an almost pathological need to see itself as “good people” no matter what horrible shit they did. You cannot enslave folks you view as your equals. You cannot enslave a race of people you view as human and still see yourself as “good person”. Instead, to maintain a positive self image, the slaveholder has to convince both himself (and the slave) that the slave is “inferior” and DESERVES the horrible treatment he/she is forced to endure. That the slave is not HUMAN. This inability to see Black people as fellow human beings, the inability to understand the grief of a Black parent mourning for a child needlessly killed by the police is the same strain of racist/White supremacy that allowed for the enslavement of Black people in the “land of the free”.

      It was stupendous hearing the President this evening. Always feels as though one could sit and “just chat” with him, although I’d be inclined to faint first.

    The “I.G.Y.” of the title refers to the “International Geophysical Year”, an event that ran from July 1957 to December 1958.[1]:217 The I.G.Y. was an international scientific project promoting collaboration among the world’s scientists. Fagen’s lyrics reference, from the point of view of that time, an optimistic vision of futuristic concepts such as solar-powered cities, a transatlantic tunnel, permanent space stations,[3] and spandex jackets.

    Fascinating read from Al Jazeera, something I didn’t realize.The nuclear agreement with Iran with the P5+1 nations will be rafted by the UN Security Council. The GOP can’t touch it. And any future president who disavows it will be in violation of international law.

    http://america.aljazeera.com/blogs/scrutineer/2015/3/9/what-46-republican-senators-may-not-understand-about-iran.html
    “The key element missing from the GOP Senators’ letter, however, is that the deal is not being negotiated between Iran and the United States; it is being negotiated between Iran and the P5+1 group, in which the U.S. is joined by Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. Even if the U.S. is the key player in that group, the deal being pursued reflects an international consensus — the same consensus that has made sanctions against Iran so effective.

    This was likely in the mind of Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, who dismissed the letter as “of no legal value” and a “propaganda ploy.” Zarif noted that the deal would indeed be an international agreement adopted by the U.N. Security Council, which a new administration would be obliged to uphold — and that any attempt by the White House or Congress to abrogate, unilaterally modify or impede such an agreement would be a breach of U.S. obligations. ”
    Off to see POTUS on Jimmie Kimmel.
