Lee’ ~ apology ~ aaron schlossberg edited ~ t.i. ~ jordan peterson and the failure of the left ~ @chamblee54 “you’re blowing my mind” .@robertwrighter @BretWeinstein back to the idw… the exclusion of authoritarians is amusing, since that is a spectrum rather than a binary i have always felt that authoritarianism is the under debated issue of our time ~ rfra ~ living small ~ mrs philip roth ~ queen talk ~ No one’s ready for GDPR ~ repeater ~ Body Worn Camera Video Release of Sterling Brown Arrest ~ governors race ~ Cost of hosting Super Bowl remains unclear, but NFL demands a lot ~ kbp the end ~ necrology ~ Did Jack Johnson Try To Board The Titanic? ~ incel ~ Police Killed At Least 378 Black Americans From The Moment Colin Kaepernick Protested ~ @chamblee54 .@chescaleigh I have heard you say that intention does not matter, that it is results that matter Many people say that the nfl protests are about police brutality, and that it is not intended to disrespect the flag Is this a case where results, not intentions, matter 1/2 @chamblee54 .@chescaleigh It is not hard to imagine that some people are going to feel that the nfl protests are disrespectful to the flag, despite what the kneeling players say I think the kneelers knew this but decided to go ahead with the protest 2/2 @chescaleigh i have not said intent doesn’t matter. i’ve said intent doesn’t absolve impact. please stop misrepresenting me. better yet, please leave me alone. You are blocked from following @chescaleigh and viewing @chescaleigh’s Tweets. ~ @blkpsych247 But she doesn’t owe you anything, not even a continuation of the conversation. Some people feel so entitled to other’s time, space, and mental energy… ~ She repeatedly said that intent was not as important as results maybe the wording was off, but that was the gist of the message – now these nfl kneelers are saying it was not their intent to disrespect the flag, when it was obvious some people would take it that way ~ dialog Atonement as Activism Micah718 And that’s why being a white Jewish man I tell anyone who talks about my white privilege to kiss my a$$. Self-flaggelation is a Christian phenomenon, I feel no need to replicate it. ~ As a white gentile with confederate ancestors, I freely admit to having white privilege. I fail to see what difference it makes. ~ No, he was just another man that did not want to ask for directions. There are a lot of stories like that. Sometimes, the concern is justified. Often, though, I hear stories like that where the fear of the black people is greatly exaggerated. This has a way of being insulting to the white people involved. Do you assume that I am an asshole, just because I am white? ~ ~ African Americans can, and will, tell their story. I can choose to believe, or not to believe. (I presume that we are talking about black people being uncomfortable dealing with white people here. This conversation is going in several different directions.) There was a story recently… i do not have a link, and do not remember all the details… about a black lady going into a restaurant, and seeing that there were no other black people there. She went on facebook and made a scene. How do we know how the (presumably) European Americans at the restaurant felt about this? Would they have just treated her like another customer? I imagine that if that was me, and I was working in a place and had a black person come in, and that person said that they felt unsafe because of it, that I would have my feelings hurt. ~ My Aunt was living nearby when The Temple was bombed. She said that she thought the Russians had come for us. ~ #ChelseaClinton is trending. In 2008, she told a reporter, who asked about her daddie’s zipper problem, “that’s none of your business” That is how I feel about her opinions today. ~ happy birthday i am trying to think of a vaguely insulting comment to add, but that is too much work ~ Woman Shows How Much Clenching Your Butt Can Change The Way It Looks ~ 6 brutally honest reasons why your intentions don’t matter, but your actions do ~ waffle house conversation ~ #Tittytwerkchallenge ~ kardashian shit ~ @TFLN (614): The neighbors in the apartment above us are at it again.

Already sounds better than the last one ~ Israeli Intelligence Firm’s Election-Meddling Analysis Comes Under Mueller’s Scrutiny ~ Emily Levine ~ bbq becky ~ One suggestion: When sharing a story like this, post a picture to go with it, or turn off the picture that comes with the link. Write your own headline. In this case, we have a problem with labor policies at Planned Parenthood. Some headline writer, for whatever reason, decided include a cheap shot about “Donald Trump’s Labor Board”. (disclosure: I have not read the article) ~ 25-Year-Old Man Trying to Lose His Virginity Instead Ends up with Massive Surplus of Vomit. ~ you’re blowing my mind ” .@robertwrighter .@BretWeinstein back to the idw… the exclusion of authoritarians is amusing, since that is a spectrum rather than a binary i have always felt that authoritarianism is the under debated issue of our time ~ @chamblee54 “who did we miss” “jordan peterson” you will be punished for this near omission .@robertwrighter .@BretWeinstein .@jordanbpeterson ~ there was one moment from last night i should share i sat in the second row of the bleachers during the feature in front of me were three people, a boy girl couple, and a male third party the male third party took a lollipop out of his mouth, and handed it to the girl. she put the lollipop in her mouth, sucked on it for a minute, and then handed it back to the male third party ~ Then they came for the ones they called racist … and I did not speak out, because I did not want them to call me racist Then they came for the lonely and depressed… and i did not speak out because negative attitude is their choice ~ I want to be there if Stacey’s followers try to shout down the Republican candidate, like they did to Stacey Evans.

It’s a typically clever German acronym. ~ I am going to guess that Janice Rothschild Blumberg is not African American. African Americans can, and will, tell their story. I can choose to believe, or not to believe. (I presume that we are talking about black people being uncomfortable dealing with white people here.

I hope this answers your question. ~ Georgian Hills Park 2800 Georgian Dr W, Atlanta, GA 30341 This is a newly renovated park, and may not be on gps. Just off Clairmont Rd, between Buford Hiway and Peachtree Industrial. Park on Georgian Drive E of Georgian Drive W. The is a oval shaped track for a possible walking meditation.

Georgian Hills Park ~ @TheoNicole My 73-year-old aunt wrote a poem about my pronouns in her church writing group and it’s the sweetest thing ~ This person I know, Wants to be called a they, It could bring us much closer, To see them that way, It’s a strange thing to think, And harder to say, But they is so happy, When the effort is made, For all the theys and thems, It is this that I pray, We be kind and accepting, And just let them be they ~ Doug DeLoach May 23 2018 at 4:20 pm “The performance [by the Sex Pistols] was said to be horrible.” You must have exclusively heard either from people who weren’t there or scene trolls who hated punk rock in the first place. The show was about as awesomely punk as punk can get. ~ If you love someone, set them free. If you hate someone, set them free. Set everyone free, and get a dog. ~ In 2008, a reporter asked #ChelseaClinton about her daddy, who has a zipper problem. She said “that’s none of your business” That is how I feel about her opinions today. ~ There used to be a thing in discos. The dj would play a few great numbers, and everybody is dancing up a storm. Then, the dj plays something horrible, so that people will quit dancing, and buy drinks. ~ the poem PG read last night, at Java Monkey, was a selection from I Sing the Body Electric Walt Whitman’s birthday is May 31

The wrestle of wrestlers, two apprentice-boys, quite grown, lusty, good-natured, native-born,
out on the vacant lot at sundown after work,
The coats and caps thrown down, the embrace of love and resistance,
The upper-hold and under-hold, the hair rumpled over and blinding the eyes;
The march of firemen in their own costumes,
the play of masculine muscle through clean-setting trowsers and waist-straps,
The slow return from the fire, the pause when the bell strikes suddenly again,
and the listening on the alert,
The natural, perfect, varied attitudes, the bent head, the curv’d neck and the counting;
Such-like I love—I loosen myself, pass freely, am at the mother’s breast with the little child,
Swim with the swimmers, wrestle with wrestlers,
march in line with the firemen, and pause, listen, count.
I knew a man, a common farmer, the father of five sons,
And in them the fathers of sons, and in them the fathers of sons.
This man was a wonderful vigor, calmness, beauty of person,
The shape of his head, the pale yellow and white of his hair and beard,
the immeasurable meaning of his black eyes, the richness and breadth of his manners,
These I used to go and visit him to see, he was wise also,
He was six feet tall, he was over eighty years old,
his sons were massive, clean, bearded, tan-faced, handsome,
They and his daughters loved him, all who saw him loved him,
They did not love him by allowance, they loved him with personal love,
He drank water only, the blood show’d like scarlet through the clear-brown skin of his face,
He was a frequent gunner and fisher, he sail’d his boat himself, he had a fine one presented to him by a ship-joiner, he had fowling-pieces presented to him by men that loved him,
When he went with his five sons and many grand-sons to hunt or fish,
you would pick him out as the most beautiful and vigorous of the gang,
You would wish long and long to be with him,
you would wish to sit by him in the boat that you and he might touch each other.
