I don't like trolls.

In 1994 I went to Atlanta to attend my Dad's military reunion for black veterans

Never had been to the south before and the day after the convention we had a free day so we asked the concierge what would be a good place to go. He suggested Stone Mountain. We rented a car and drove out there. I never knew the history of that mountain. Anyway we took the tram up and this guy on the tram kept saying this is a monument or the greatness of whites people And white power ! I am a light skinned black woman married to a white man and our son was almost 3 in his stroller. I turned away from that guy not wanting him to see the fear in my heart and eyes. He had no idea what I was. We got to the top and I was off that tram so quickly I told my husband to deal with our son in the stroller. Once up there it was a striking view but very hot and we didn’t stay up there long. But I noticed there were only white people up there. It hit me all of a sudden this was a monument to the confederacy. And we left and went back down. I grew up in San Francisco and honestly was not a history buff then. I brought a souvenir kitchen coaster with my name on it that had Stone Mountain engraved on it. To this day I have it in my kitchen and chuckle.

But that guy saying white power will always stay in my memory.

Philippine Dissenters May Face Terrorist Designation Sorry if it's already been posted

MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines is expected to sign sweeping antiterrorism legislation that critics said on Thursday would allow the authorities to classify government opponents as terrorists and detain people for critical social media posts.

The measure, which has passed both houses of Congress, neared finalization as the United Nations released a scathing report that cites widespread human rights violations under Mr. Duterte, including the extrajudicial killing of more than 8,000 people.

Despite years of international and domestic criticism over rights abuses, Mr. Duterte appears eager to double down on his strategy of suppressing dissent and to give the police an even freer hand to crack down.

Critics said the legislation was so broadly written that it would allow the arrest and detention of people without a warrant or a charge for criticizing the government or acts such as causing property damage or carrying a weapon.

This is MF45 wet dream playbook. I wonder if Duarte is also a putin puppet.

This is what will happen to us if we don’t vote every last republican out of office. Smash them like cockroaches. They have shown us what they are by not speaking out against the police terrorism we are experiencing with the brutality of Americans in our country .

Sun Tzu, The art of War


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
