As someone who has worked with both addicts and mentally ill folks in professional settings for many years, I have also had several opportunities to interact with and at times, confront Neo-Nazi and White Supremacist skinheads, when I ran a punk rock venue. Most addicts and mentally ill folks were not violent, though some hurt themselves. In one instance, I was involved in dealing with a young man who was a school shooter at a local high school.Read more
The fire that partially destroyed the Iconic Cathedral, Notre Dame, though certainly sad, underscores some very important contrasts in priorities for people of faith in general, Christians in specific, and the public at large. The history, the architecture, and the stories associated with it have significant importance. However, it underscores some fundamental problems with what Christians prioritize and what people of wealth prioritize. Within hours of this occurrence, more than 300 million was raised for its restoration.
Yet the very same rich people in France refuse to support paying more for social programs in France. It also underscores the irony of Victor Hugo's novel Hunchback of Notre Dame, a novel the highlights the Churches need to offer sanctuary to undesirables, immigrants, homeless folks and those whom society rejects, contrasted with the Wealthy and powerful, and racists' attitudes toward the very same people, and yet they mourn the destruction of this very Cathedral. The Yellow vest protests against austerity and Government corruption further contrasts this contradiction.Read more
As expected, some liberals and supposed anarchists are bringing up Maduro's problems. Not sure how that justifies US intervention and war. Obviously, these people either do not know or deny how the US via the CIA and other ways has intervened globally and wrecked havoc. Sometimes Liberals and so called Anarchists, probably trust fund babies, are useful idiots for Capitalism and Imperialism. So let the accusations reactionary voices respond.Read more
The current Government Shutdown, the longest in US history, with no end in sight, is having multiple impacts across the country. It is impacting directly, 800,000 Government workers and their families, it is impacting million of Americans dependent on the services provided by these Government workers. For instance, Native Americans, who are dependent on the services that the Bureau of Indian Affairs provides, such as food support, housing support and other vital services are going without help or assistance. Further, this shutdown is impacting SNAP food and cash benefits allocation of funds and support, impacting millions of poor Americans who will go without or have services delayed.Read more
2019 must be a year of uprising and action. We must collectivly come together and take to the streets. We must organize, we must strategize, we must look at what must be done to change the tide of where things are going in this country and globally. Many things are looming on the horizon. Economists are telling us that an economic collapse is on the horizon, perhaps as soon as the end of 2019 if not sooner.Read more
Ho hum. Another racist murder. Another Trayvon Martin. This time in Clearwater, Florida. Raving racist Michael Drejka deliberately provoked a fight with a Black woman over a convenience store parking spot, got shoved by Markeis McGlockton, her boyfriend, and then took careful aim and drilled the Black man in cold blood.
Act two, as tragedy turns into farce. "He had to shoot to defend himself," said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. "Those are the facts and that's the law."Read more
