The following debate took place on my Facebook wall, after I shared a post from here…
Diana D.: Over a hundred rockets fired from Gaza at Israel yesterday, the day of the sabbath….
Rayn: Hmmm… You seem to agree that bombing civilians is wrong… But, it’s also important to recognize the fact that the right to life is actually natural-borne, and not a mere privilege of citizenship…
Diana D.: Those civilians been hijacked by terrorists. #freegazafromhamas
Paul K.: Dual Citizenship I bet, Today is my Sabbath are you throwing BOMB`s today
Rayn: The only thing that Israeli bombs free Gazan civilians from is corporeality… Terrorism is terrorism… Being targeted by it in any way should provide adequate knowledge of its utter illegitimacy, and total immorality. It is always a criminal act, no matter the motivation, and no matter the author.(Click Here to Continue Reading This Post) →
(Andrea Germanos) Noted consumer advocate and author Ralph Nader on Friday offered a sharp retort to Laura Bush and Michelle Obama in response to the former first ladies levied criticism at the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policy that separated immigrant children from their families.
“Would be nice if Laura Bush and Michelle Obama had expressed similar heartfelt concern for the tens of thousands of children killed or seriously maimed by the wars of their husbands in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere,” he tweeted.
As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “The Art of Not Being Governed,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“I’d never separate you from your parents”
My Commentary: If you suddenly claim to care about innocent children, but have never spoken out against the American government’s bipartisan policy of drone-bombing innocent children, for fifteen years, straight, and counting… you’re a coward and a hypocrite. Please reevaluate your so-called morality. Thanks.
(Sam Stanton, Tony Bizjak, and Nashelly Chavez) Stephon Clark was shot six times in the back and eight times total by Sacramento police officers, according to a private autopsy released Friday by his family’s legal team, a finding that increased tensions in a city already on edge about the shooting of the unarmed black man.
My Commentary: Not a single police bullet entered Clark’s body from the front, when he was recently murdered by criminal agents of the State, operating under color of law. Another tax-funded execution of the innocent, and more American Fascism, Exposed…
(Michael Krieger) In 2017, I wrote a lot about how dangerously centralized our political system in the U.S. has become, and how we need to decentralize governance in order to restore power, liberty and policy experimentation to the local level. This notion that a sprawling and culturally diverse nation of 325 million individuals should constantly battle to the death over the ring of political power in Washington D.C. so as to impose their view on the other half of the country which completely disagrees is patently ludicrous.
