THINLY VEILED DOESN’T CUT IT, MR. OBAMA

Until Obama can bring himself to call out Trump and the GOP by name, his value to the resistance is peripheral.

TRUMP THREATENS AMERICA

Today he put the screws yet again on this country, declaring in categorical terms that America must annihilate itself for his pleasure.

KEEP IT UP

Watched the first fifteen minutes of the Mariinsky’s Raymonda, streamed a few days ago, now on You Tube.

Viktoria Tereshkina danced her variation beautifully.

Raymonda is one of the Mariinsky’s finest productions, as the U.S. saw when they
brought it here four years ago.

If Tamara Karsavina is to be believed, it is one of the closest to the original in the Mariinsky canon.

Look forward to picking it up again, soon.

NO, MR. TRUMP

America will indeed never be a Communist country.

But it will be a dictatorship, if you and the GOP are allowed to continue your rampage on our democracy.

WHEN THE FCC CLOSES DOWN FOX “NEWS,” THEN CHUCK TODD SHOULD APOLOGIZE

We’ll see how much more ass-kissing NBC, that bulwark of a free media, will commit in its desire to propitiate Mad King Donald.

A PAINED, PRISSY EXPRESSION DOES NOT A CHIEF JUSTICE MAKE

Extremist John Roberts makes it clear once again that he is working hand-in-glove with Mitch McConnell to pack the courts with equally unfit and even more extreme justices.

Roberts and his right-wing majority have tainted the Court beyond repair. It is time to declare it null and void, and time to let judicial decisions rest at the appeals level.

And when, if ever, the Supreme Court can be reconstituted judiciously, it is time to forgo lifetime appointments.

BELLS AND WHISTLES

Sometimes I’ll walk down to Health and Harmony on Hudson Street in the early evening, and as I’m walking back the jubilant carillon cheering on the first responders cheers and invigorates me.

The first responders, putting their lives on the line… the same people Trump accuses of stealing medical supplies.

In spite of what Trump & the GOP have done to America, there is some decency and patriotism left.

PRESIDENT BONE SPURS TELLS AMERICA TO KAMIKAZE ITSELF

We have a depraved, traitorous sociopath in the Oval Office.

But I guess you knew that already.

NOW THE GATES’ ARE GETTING CARTE BLANCHE

Gov Cuomo, inevitably weak in the knees whenever he hears the siren song of oligarchs, is now planing to unleash the Gates and their top-down, top-heavy education dogmas on New York State.

As Zephyr Teachout tweets:

“Gates is always about test and punish regimes, disconnected silver bullet visions.

Cuomo has always been hunting for ways to do education on the cheap and gut union power.”

What could go wrong?

AMERICA IS DISCOVERING HOW DANGEROUS IS A LACK OF AESTHETIC DISCERNMENT

From “The War on the Arts in America”

“Trump’s garishly painted and plastered appearance was a monument to a lifetime of sham and self-indulgence. His hair, teeth and complexion were graphically fake. Yet millions of Americans lapped up his pronouncement that any inconvenient fact or news reportage was to be rejected outright as ‘fake news.’”
