TRUMP, GLOBAL PANDEMIC, BLACK LIVES MATTER- Message to my Son 1-9
1. Maybe we all feel the entire earth is fracturing and want to grab something even if it cuts.

Like with political sides that act as cults I'm thinking there are fractions of factions each believing they have the Truth. I so agree everything is so crazy now and all at once like prisms scattering the unity of one light into a mess of unfathomable colors.

I've been on Twitter trying my hand at articulating my political views, learning about the spectrums of the current rage. The fuck trump cartoons are fun but not the sickening videos of law enforcement practicing enemy combat on by standers, Trump's fortressing off Lafayette Park, the "go-back where-you came-froms," Beevis and Butthead arsonists in antifa black, the blind loyalty for Trump's dementia

That amid miles of kindly, singing people gathered all over the world in the name of George Floyd to call out racism.
Four blocks of Black Lives Matter in 8' white caps in view of the White House, sanctioned by the mayor.

But viven that I'm quarantined, sharing twitter views is my only way to be the protester I was back in the '60s when we thought we could cause the insane to become well. Remember when you didn't register for the Vietnam draft?

One thing is evident is how a single "leader" can poison and divide the historical and binding intendions of a nation. I hope we don't lose it.

There are obvious things that need to happen before we become a protectorate of China. It's so disheartening to see that the Democrats (who else is there?) have only a cursory concept about the depth and origins of racism in our institutions and certainly in themselves.

Biden comes out saying the police should continue to be funded, nothing about restructuring. No courage to stand up to the police unions. Same o. Nancy Pelosi and other dems exhibit the kneel at Lloyd's memorial - expropriating identical vests made of kinde cloth - clueless to the colonial implications.

Perhaps the only change will be to return less obvious ly brutal "normal" when Trump is gone. Flawed democracy is better than none, I figure.
Trash for TASH god of the Calormines (Chronicles of Narnia)
I remember him. He was the nice Catholic boy. He was at the Demolet dances but not dancing, He was the o ediant boy who believed that Mary was a virgin and therefore immaculate in her long blue dress. Nary a penis entered her for she related to heaven with her up seeing eyes. God looked down charting men’s every move toward her. Thus Mary was RE conceived by the penises as Merry. Penises are in solidarity with others lime themselves with similiar goals and interests. Strength in numbers exchanging information. Ah the power of conspiracy. Those girls don’t know what’s coming.
The blue dress Mary’s wait for their god in their personally assigned Joseph. The penises never wait.
So Frat Boys and their punishing hazing of each other. Penises getting remittance for their god free ways. So Frat Boys like Kavenaugh and the joy of punishment. Slap the monkey. Choke the chicken. The girl in the barrel. There they were at the Frat Party- chicks and. Bonobos
ots of beer, the sacrificial wine, the blood and the body
Alas Kavenough, I knew him well a couple of times in the biblical sense. Thank you god, he didn’t marry me. I was incapable of immaculate child bearing.
Now the penis wants to score a place on the Supreme Court. The Knowers are saying no. We know you and your gang of penises, your Supreme Court of penises in judging us, nominating us for our lifetime appointment as clicks
These are political times. It seems less and less right to make art that stands apart -aloof - from the daily threat loosing our democratic ideals. Ideals, I say, because even our foundation - the US Constitution - was only a start to "All people are created equal" The application of the constitutional principles has been seriously undermined by all the prejuduces under the sun, our particular American brand of racism, sexism and the cultivation of ignorance, as only a populist state can pull off.
