White supremacist President

Drumpf.

His VP is a christofascist, and also an old white man.

All you need to know about America right now.

**Highly recommend: Raoul Peck's "Exterminate All the Brutes," on HBO. 4 part documentary. SEARING to watch - to be honest, I have to leave the room about half the time. I do feel obligated to have exposure to the brutality and violence waged by white, Xtian, Europeans over 1000 years against the rest of the world, especially, people of color., that he depicts

The history is critical to know. The way Peck presents the material is incredible: he juxtaposes old and new, historical and current, dramatization and reality, music and film clips and art through the ages.

I can't recommend it highly enough. It will give you a whole new lens through which to view history, even if you are familiar with Zinn ("A People's History of the US" ) and some of the other events and dynamics over the past 1000 (only? maybe 2000...)years of white supremacy, domination, extermination.

RESOUNDING SUCCESS - HUZZAH BIDEN/HARRIS ADMINISTRATION!!!

Just read in today's Washington Post that 58% of the US eligible population ages 12 and over - 162.5 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccination!

Gob-smacking, when you think of where we were less than 6 months ago!

On my knees in gratitude and admiration for what Biden has been able to do. Pure good.

Apparently the former guy's attempt to off the population (I believe him to be a sociopath of that order) FAILED!
