Liked this so much, I’m posting it again.

Yayy, I’m so glad you posted it again! The first time you did I couldn’t ‘see’ it, only could see the text. Incredible shot!

polarbear4

Oh, my.

Benny

I could listen to Sister Nina everyday!

magsview

Me too!! Nina rocks!

Benny

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Bernie sing along with John Lennon before!

Glad he’s wearing a cap to not get sunburned.

Is it “Power to the People”? I’m not listening to it. That is not one of Lennon’s best political tunes.

Benny

Forcing to birth a baby of a rapist, how gross! I agree with him.

Bernie’s on fire this evening. He used the word bulls**t in his speech. Obviously ad-libbing a bit.

magsview

That’s great! There is definitely a lot of bullshit to be called out.

Bernie, feel free to use my flashing sign 🙂 🙂

Haha, that’s funny.

Thanks for all of your posting Benny! I particularly enjoyed an evening post a few nights ago, wanted to let you know. They’re all good!

Oh, and your gracious-feisty self was great to see at TOP today. I admire your restraint. 🙂 XO

And you are back on the DK rec list. All those haters. But a thick skin comes with the territory. I asked them what Bernie policies they disagree with. Maybe they want war with Iraq. Perhaps they are fine with the Saudis slaughtering the Yemenis. Maybe they hate unions. Or they love charter schools. Of course, they may not fear climate change. Is it they disagree that abortion is a constitutional right? Let us know!

Okay, why is the Daily Kos always abbreviated as the TOP here? I quit that damn site ten years ago and I am still mystified by the abbreviation.

WindDancer13

TOP is The Other Place.

Or GOS Great Orange Satan but that could cover Trumpcorp too.

A story I thought you all might appreciate.

An Uncommon Victory for an Indigenous Tribe in the Amazon

In April 26th, a parade of hundreds of Waorani men and women, members of an indigenous nation in a remote part of the Ecuadorian Amazon, marched triumphantly through the streets of Puyo, the regional capital of the eastern province of Pastaza. Many had come from villages in parts of the rain forest that have no roads—journeying by canoe and small plane. They were celebrating a new court ruling, which held that the Ecuadorian government could not, as it had planned, auction off their land for oil exploration without their consent. Nemonte Nenquimo, a Waorani leader, told me that they had come to Puyo to reclaim their right to self-governance and that the verdict had made them feel safer. “The court recognized that the government violated our right to live free, and make our own decisions about our territory and self determination,” she said, over WhatsApp. “Our territory is our decision, and now, since we are owners, we are not going to let oil enter and destroy our natural surroundings and kill our culture.”

Brave women!

The path to the verdict had not been certain. In March, a group of Waorani women shut down a hearing with song, protesting the conditions under which the case was being tried; they objected to it being held in Puyo, far from the Waorani villages, and to the absence of a court-certified translator. Many of the Waorani representatives wore traditional dress in court and had red bars painted across their cheekbones and brows. Singing a song about their traditional role as protectors of the forest, they drowned out the judge and lawyers until the judge finally suspended the hearing, which was rescheduled for April.

Bernie attracts sweeties! (:~>)

Ok. This rec list diary shows how far DK has sunk. It’s all about Mayor Pete’s military service and how noble and good it was. No mention about how it was resume building for the good centrist Dem. Why the holy hell are military people better for us than non-military?

It is faux patriotism: God and country and protecting those back home.

Real patriots…the ones who actually want to make things better for the people… are demeaned, smeared, persecuted and/or thrown in prison…or murdered.

Bowie covering this Easybeats song about Friday.

Classic LP by a great multi-talented artist. 🙂
