I'm in Twitter Jail today for posting "harrassment and/or threats".

Someone had mentioned something awful trump had said/done. Most responders in the thread were saying he should be in prison or exile, which of course I'm in agreement with. I recalled an episode of the Twilight Zone called "Life is Good". I've heard a lot of comparisons of trump to Anthony Fremont, the brat with supernatural powers, a short fuse & a malevolent nature. He could wish people into a nearby corn field.

You could be there forever and ever.

My remark was: "trump is a shambles, and should be thrown into the corn field."

When I woke up I saw Twitter had put me on a 12-hr Time-out; I can read it all I want, but no tweeting or liking or trying to make friends. It's the first time that's happened to me, and my face was hot. I really thought everyone knew which cornfield I was talking about.

I appealed it by saying that I'd meant to say "wished into the cornfield". I'm in my early 50's, 62 inches tall & have no interest in leaving my house. It was a terrible misunderstanding, probably based on that ending scene from the movie "Casino". I'm simply not formidable enough to either throw or wish anyone into a corn field.

I've used my spare time to clean my house to within an inch of its life and kill a pint of Ben & Jerry's. I devoutly hope that that doesn't scare anyone. By the time I'm done poring over what I could have done differently, I'll be back on Twitter.

Was Worst.

I'll bet Joe Biden does his own hair every morning.

He's a resourceful man. I can imagine him in front of the mirror. Four or five swipes with a comb, and it's all done in less than ten seconds. Nobody around to help.

Here is trump telling everyone the Coronavirus is a "hoax":

Has he seen this yet?

"We always say "Worst Case Scenario"...and I think that's where we're going."

That's all he really had to say.

So Mote It Be.

Time to bring on the monkeys! Large, bristling gangs of them.

I can't imagine anything more fun than watching a monkey- trump pile-up.

Chen Qiushi, Coronavirus whistle-blower, missing since Thursday


And this: Other whistle-blowers, gone.

Chen Qiushi is one of the people I followed on YouTube for his latest news of the Corona virus, and now he's disappeared. This is a nightmare.

Thanks for the tip, dewsgirl! I found this yesterday:

I'd never heard of Chris Martens before then, but he inspired my confidence.


"Thumbs-Up": When a (universally-understood) positive gesture goes BAD

I'm a child of the seventies. All of us in America, everyone with a thumb, expressed approval & enthusiasm with the signal. There are so many pics from that time onward indicating joy or sarcasm from children and adults of every background. I myself was making the gesture up until, I don't know, 3 years ago?

I loathe it now. I've lost all regard for the "thumbs up". I have no use for it. I've seen too, too many pictures of pasty rich powerful ugly nasty cruel old men using it. And their slimy, mean smiles. It feels like they're giving me the finger.

Sometimes, this is how it's done, I think: working on people's heads, turning the meaning of something around completely. Incidentally, if I wanted to destroy another nation from within, I'd start with its very language, and I think this is no different.
