How hard does life need to kick you to play the blues like that at such an age?

Someone asked me what genocide Biden is supporting. I just about lost my shit. Not only is he backing Israel's massacre of Palestinians, but he is also backing Rwanda's massacre of Congolese, Modi's bigoted gov. in India, and on and on. How do folks not get the US is the bad guy?

My Roman war goddess Minerva loves to come onto my Zoom calls and take centre stage. Her disapproving stare when I'm talking about complex issues can be so damned cute. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ธ

There is a global planned for my birthday, 17 May, so maybe y'all could use that as motivation if, you know, standing up for and aren't enough motivation? LOL

Blocking riding the coattails of the Palestine movement is getting to be a daily occurrence. Arguing Israeli actions are worse than those of Nazi fucking Germany while using the Untermenschen rhetoric of the fucking Nazis is far beyond the pale of tolerance.

Take a look at this person's flag choices. Ask yourself what similarity they see that brought them together. Take all the time you need.

Folks love calling Israel a liberal democracy, but here they are claiming news is a 'threat to national security'. When informing people of what you say and do is a threat, you're doing something wrong. They did this two days after .

The pro- movement is being infiltrated by agents. When you see shit like this, report it, block the person, and spread awareness of their names. Anyone sharing this codswallop needs to be made persona non grata everywhere.

I wanted to record a few thoughts on the pending legislation trying to call Jewish Voice for Peace and folks like me antisemitic, and since trolls killed my TikTok, I did it this way instead. Hopefully this is clear. I want folks able to distinguish between an ideology and a people!

Someone reshared this old post of mine on Facebook this morning, so perhaps it's worth a reshare myself.

When universities were created in mediaeval Europe, it was students who set curricula and approved the instructors and administrators. I think we need to get back to something like that because the present system serves the status quo and not students.

Clear communication has been restored with . The probe is over 15 billion miles away, sailing in interstellar space. That it's still operational after 47 years is amazing, and the kind of results we'll never get with for-profit space companies.

(1/2) Israel alleged back in January that UNRWA workers were with Hamas and participated in 7 Oct., which was obviously false, and no-one in my field took it seriously. They offered no evidence to investigators, then or over the following months. UN has concluded it was a lie...

The US will be dropping a bit lower still in next year's rankings, from 62nd place in individual liberty to who knows how low. Both and are jam-packed with vicious authoritarians who simply lie about caring for freedom. This is a .

It gets tiresome, the way conspiracies spread among fellow pro- folks. It also hurts our cause. is evil for its politics, yes, but doesn't own Congress; it backs already evil people. Same with media. Jews don't buy control; the truth is more complex.
