Post-Reconstruction US history shows us that anti-democracy extremists will escalate if not confronted.

‘Lewis Co Sheriff Mike Carpinelli is part of a far-right movement known as the constitutional sheriffs, which teaches sheriffs they don’t have to enforce laws they think are unconstitutional.’

If you read Elise Stefanik’s letter and click through to the links she provides trying to back up her complaint, it looks even more like bs, not less.

So at my father’s repeated suggestion I am watching and listening to Ken Burn’s Country music. He was right, I like it. The parallel with Jazz in intriguing. But I wanted to share a cool site I came across when I went look up Hank Williams lyrics. https://www.classic-countr...

This is my second story about my experience with affirmative action. It also includes my personal brush with the issue of student loans. This time i'm not the person getting helped by either. I'm one alum selected to an important alumni Council of my graduate university, Cornell in Ithaca, NY.

Quick, Department of Education - put new IPEDS requirements in place for schools to have to report admissions data and success outcomes (gpa, credit progression, graduation rates) for all legacy and donor-related admits. Break it down by donation level. They can do that, you know. #AffirmativeAction

It's Juneteenth, Spoutible! Time for a *CRT* lesson. Keep reading if you want to be a modern-day rebel for justice because 35 states in the USA are working on laws to make Black History discussions like this one ILLEGAL.

KEEP READING AT YOUR OWN RISK! Ha!

This is your responsibility to the fight. The marginalized have carried you here at a cost you will never have to pay yourself. If you cannot stand up steadfast against harm, violence, and apathy then you perpetuate it. You're not a victim. You're part of the problem holding back everyone's progress
(laura) elsen @eilsen_baddie
I welcome others to further the discussion, provide books and other resources that have made a difference in your journey toward anti-racism, or provide your own testimony.

Keep pushing the line forward.

Athabasca Glacier is a place where visitors can see the devastating effect that climate change is having on our planet: the glacier is retreating at an alarming rate of approximately 16.4 ft (5 m) each year.

The most underreported and egregious move in Postmaster DeJoy’s arbitrary postal service price hike agenda is a 300 percent price hike on essential services that are used primarily by immigrant and low-income households.

A truly fantastic theme, a wonderful example of musique concrète,¹ AND a woman composer.²

2. Delia Derbyshire, who brought Ron Grainer's basic sketch to life.

“Fascism is not the easiest thing to identify and analyze,” it said, “nor, once in power, is it easy to destroy. It is important for our future and that of the world that as many of us as possible understand the causes and practices of fascism, in order to combat it.”

Good idea. My district did not vote for Biden but I’m always happy to give Elise Stefanik a piece of my mind
Mona Burns @MonaBurns
If you live in a district that voted for Biden in 2020
but elected a Republican to the House in 2022
Today is the day to let them know that you expect them to cooperate and sign on to the debt limit discharge petition!
They're heading home today
Call their district offices!
Don't let this go..

BREAKING: Yemi Mobolade wins as mayor of Colorado Springs -- an independent defeating the Republican, in THE most conservative GOP city in the state.

In 2016, Trump won there by 16%.
In 2020, Trump won by 3%.
Tonight, Mobolade is winning by 15.

31-point shift away from the GOP.

When Colonel Tom Parker saw Elvis, he knew he'd uncovered a gold mine because he'd found a White artist who could perform reasonably in a "Black style." By 1956 #Elvis reached stratospheric heights singing Black music—a level of fame that Black performers of that time could only dream of. {#id:395180#}

Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks) finds out Elvis is white. Scene from Baz Luhrmann's Elvis (2022) featuring Austin Butler as Elvis Presley.

Quiet part loud again. She knows this hate will rally her hateful supporters, so “It’s a winning issue!” even though she also knows it will grind many children to a pulp. Eat shit, Elise Stefanik.

Otis Spann: Hotel Lorraine (1968). Otis Spann was Muddy Waters' piano player. He wrote this moving tribute to Dr. King, featuring his most emotional singing and keyboard playing. Listen and be prepared to be moved by the power of the blues. #mlk #wokesongs #bluesmusic #blues

DeSantis has a press shop that is known for being combative with the media. Members of his team have highlighted individual reporters on Twitter while demanding corrections. They have also shared screenshots of emails…sent by journalists in an effort to paint those reporters as biased.
