    Props to Mayor Muriel Bowser and to the protesters in DC, across the country, and around the world!

    • June 6, 2020 at 2:03 pm

      Wow! How are you doing, Alycee?

      • June 6, 2020 at 2:11 pm

        Hanging in there. Bronchitis cleared up; now dealing with allergies. Had to replace 100 year old sewer line from house to street. “Life 101,” it’s always something…

        Trying to stay sane; hard when facing the twin pandemics of Covid and racism. Wish I could be in the street, lifting my voice…

        How are you and your’s?

        • June 6, 2020 at 2:51 pm

          Sorry about the expensive sewer line – yikes! Also frustrated my health issues mean I need to stay home and avoid the large packed crowds of protesters. Daughter’s orders. She’s a public health nurse running testing sites in south Seattle. She is wearing her surgical mask and scrubs to a march of healthcare workers in Seattle from Harborview Hospital to downtown. White coats for Black lives. Stay safe! XOXO

    The people should officially review every single police officer’s record across America.
    We want to know who is “protecting” us. We want peace.
    Get the violent police offenders and police officers who want to kill and maim us off our streets.
    They must be clean and ready to do good or they are OUT.
    = Permanently out.

      No exceptions.
      We must review the records of ALL police officers all over the country.
      The corrupt old ways glorified on the television have FAILED big time. We don’t want riot police.
      We will create a new culture of peace protection.
      = Peace Officers.

    TEAR GAS:
    Llachrymator agent or lachrymator (“mace”) is prohibited in warfare by various international treaties.
    “During World War I, increasingly toxic and deadly lachrymatory agents were used.”
    “As with all non-lethal or less-lethal weapons, there is some risk of serious permanent injury or death
    when tear gas is used.This includes risks from being hit by tear gas cartridges that may cause severe bruising, loss of eyesight, or skull fracture, resulting in death. A case of serious vascular injury from tear gas shells has also been reported from Iran, with high rates of associated nerve injury (44%) and amputation (17%), as well as instances of head injuries in young people.”
    Use of tear gas in warfare (as with all other chemical weapons) was prohibited by the Geneva Protocol of 1925.
    = End the use of tear gas on our bodies.

    Candice Owens the black ( who want to be white ) conservative was on Glen Beck show talking about George Floyd. Oh course we know what they were doing, they do it every time a black person is murder by the police. They try to dig up stuff on Floyd, I guess to Owens-Beck it makes it easy for them to trash Floyd if he wasn’t a perfect human being. Then they could start to imply that Floyd deserve to get what he got. The cop was not that bad. Owens is a disgrace. Regardless what Floyd may have done, and I don’t know what he did , he did not deserve to be murder like he was by those racist slime cops..

    You know, EW is exhausting! She knows damn well that on Monday the CBC, ans Sens Harris and Booker will be introducing identical comprehensive bills in the House and Senate. Rather than be an ally and sign on to the bill after it’s introduced, she lifts a single item from Kamala’s website and makes a big production of supposedly doing something. She is EXHAUSTING!

    Something I saw today brought activist Jane Elliott back to my mind so I went back and looked at a couple of her interviews. She makes some ‘interesting’ points – Part 2 of a 2017 interview.

    Interviewer: ‘How would he ( Donald Trump – bring the country together) go about doing that?
    Jane Elliott: ‘Resign ……. and take his…what do you call it ….. (Mike Pence) with him…’

      I hear lots of people comment what if Trump loses and stays in the WH not leaving. Here’s my idea: Let him stay in the WH. He has expressed many times how he hates the WH and thinks it is a piece of crap. Leave the extra fencing and barbwire up acting as his own private prison keeping him inside. Evacuate the WH help, secret service and all those wanting to leave. Set up the presidential winner and new administration in another site temporarily. Have media ignore Trump completely. When he begs to leave the WH either deport him to Russia or let his crimes be tried in court. The media needs to quit amplifying his manipulative messages. Okay, okay it is just a Dream of mine.

      • June 7, 2020 at 2:29 pm

        I have heard folks talk about that too…but keep in mind…the presidency is not the White House…it will be where ever Pres Biden would be…in fact..let him stay…i would love to see the Secret Service escort him OUT..
