Social media scam is using the Baptist preacher’s name to advertise gummies, oil. “Scammers are attempting to trick you into giving your personal information or infect your electronic devices by using Dr. Stanley’s image.” ~ “Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “white” people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate. Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation. When remembered and represented, the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning (“never again”) or as temptation (“great again”). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression. There is not yet a permanent cure.” ~ THE TWILIGHT OF THE IDOLS by FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE Or, How to Philosophise with the Hammer ~ As the Trial of Omar Mateen’s Wife Begins, New Evidence Undermines Beliefs About the Pulse Massacre, Including Motive ~ Bertrand Russell “For love of domination we must substitute equality; for love of victory we must substitute justice; for brutality we must substitute intelligence; for competition we must substitute cooperation. We must learn to think of the human race as one family.” ~ “Russell to Tell of His Beliefs About Morality,” New York Herald Tribune, Mar 21 1940, 28 Telegram indicating plans to issue statement soon ~ @chamblee54 @QuoteResearch “For love of domination, we must …” This quote is not on Bertrand Russell’s Wikiquote page. The only source google has is a magazine article, quoting Mr. Russell speaking at “The Herald Tribune Forum” ~ @QuoteResearch New Hopes for a Changing World (1951) by Bertrand Russell, Chapter 16: Ideas Which Have Become Obsolete Page 159 and 160 . . . If we are to live happily . . . b. russell haiku ~ @ItsGoneAwry “I only realized a couple of days ago that I’m a guy.” Then she goes on about how hurtful it is when people use her given name and biological pronouns. It’s been two days, lol. Anyway, a bio dude wouldn’t be this dramatic. This is full-on drama queen. ~ the following piece was written during a writing workshop. the prompt: when my mirror speaks – when my mirror speaks, it asks when the tv is coming back, i say it might be back during football season, but that assumes that the digital converter works, the mirror wants me to ditch that old tv, it is as deep and heavy as it is big screened and colorful, when i was in my black and white childhood, constantly trying to get horizontal control to work, a tv like this would be a dream, now that a flat screen digital tv, costs about as much as my nine inch black and white, costs about the same, not adjusted for inflation, my mirror does not understand this, it just knows it is above my work space, so i can see the tv behind me, i am still emotionally traumatized by super bowl 51, and had to disconnect the antennae to get the vcr to work, and i still almost never turn the thing on unless it is football season, and hope the falcons don’t tear my heart out agains, like they have done every year since i was 12 years old, the mirror knows none of this it is just a dumb piece of glass, with an chemical backing that reflects things, instead of letting me see through to the wall, maybe i should have broken the mirror that night in 2017, donald trump was going to be sworn in in three days, i would trade seven years of bad luck, if the falcons could have held on to their 25 point lead, but whatshisname was sworn in, and the falcons never recovered, maybe it is because of this mirror, but i doubt it, a mirror does not change events, it just reflects them backwards, unless it is a rear view mirror on a car, but this desktop mirror is not that important ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
