Artificial Intelligence? Condemns America

 What's an Occupying (Colonial) Power?

(𝒅𝒆𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒆𝒅 𝒃𝒚 𝒂𝒏 𝑨𝑰 𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒆) The occupying (colonial) power is a term that can be used to refer to a foreign country or entity that takes control of another territory and its people, often for economic and political reasons. Here are five possible ways to describe the occupying (colonial) power, using different synonyms or perspectives:
• The invader or aggressor that imposes its authority & culture on the native population.
• The exploiter or oppressor that extracts resources & profits from the colonized land and people.
• The dominator or hegemon that establishes its supremacy & influence over the subjugated territory and its inhabitants.
• The ruler or administrator that governs the occupied territory according to its own laws & interests.
• The colonizer or settler that displaces or assimilates the indigenous population and claims the land as its own.


Not-Yet Crushed By America's Empire

Jan 17th, 1893: racist white oligarchs used US troops to force Hawaiian Queen Lili'uokalani to conditionally concede to America's stronger power: "Now, to avoid any collision of armed forces and perhaps the loss of life, I do, under this protest, and impelled by said force, yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shall, upon the facts being presented to it, undo the action of its representatives..."  😢 Military occupation persists, 2024

Jesus Looks English

This graphic depicts much of North America. Canada is now confronting their ethnic cleansing & genocidal past in many ways which the US government refuses to consider. 

Whitewashing & passive denial are becoming less acceptable everywhere. 

It's beyond belief that God, Mary & Jesus are smug & English.

Hawaiians Do Not Surrender

The 1893 US military intervention in Hawai'i was a historic pivot point, ignoring the Kingdom's Treaties of Neutrality. America apologized, but still keep immensely valuable land, sea & air spaces for exclusive use of huge US military forces -- yet Hawaiians do not surrender.

Abandon Anglo-American Arrogance!

So difficult to imagine community disruption when a foreign power kills most people & steals the land. Reject Anglo-American Arrogance!  Take the weapons & withdraw military funding from politico shitbirds. Militarism is explosive - invest locally.

Shameless genocide, shameless neglect, MMIW.

Protect PEACE from goddamn militarists

We fail to budget enough to protect PEACE -- instead we're pushed to build armaments. The USA can't afford to be world policeman & global judge. The first few seconds of this video (Operation Teapot-Turk, 1955) gives a taste of nuclear danger:

Retroactive Olympic Ban for US War Crimes?

I'm NOT in favor of Olympic boycott or to ban past athletes.

Spitz, Al Oerter, Dick Fosbury, Bob Beamon, Frank Shorter, Peggy Fleming and other US athletes weren't responsible for US crimes in Vietnam. Dangerous, violent or corrupt governments are everywhere.

Implant Patriotism in US colonies

Boarding schools for indigenous kids & after-school activities such as scouts were too often designed to manipulate & indoctrinate children. The training process was often fun -- all the more disturbing.

Children were corrupted "during their receptive years"...

The explicit "Americanization" strategy below was operating in 1922, almost 30 years after the American military triggered illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii "with the active participation of agents and citizens of the United States" (US Public Law 103-150). Subversion by the colonizer.

Zelenskyy -- "The War Monger"

Should Olympic competition ban athletes from belligerent nations? Europeans have been murderous colonizers - how long should they be punished? The Vietnam War was widely condemned - should dirty wars stop US Olympians? What of UK fight for distant Falkland colony / Malvinas, or the murderous Troubles in Ireland? Make time for truce. 

The Ukraine is pressing the Olympic movement to ban Russian & Belarus athletes or face boycott.

Media is shaping decisions! Wars are not new. Olympic truce promotes peace.

Sport & art are ways talent can blossom, potentially providing a path for emigration (defection). It's wrong to punish all people born under a violent government.

Salvage YOUR Skype Credit

Skype and Microsoft are somehow allowed to hide your "inactive" funds from you. They make it difficult to salvage & retrieve your hard-earned money after 180 days of non-use; it's burdensome to learn how much Skype Credit you had (have). They claim reactivation is easy. 

They are scum. For me it was not at all easy to see or retrieve my inactivated balance. Remember: this is a huge global software firm - but their Skype interface is confusing. I believe they make your Skype Credit reactivation deliberately difficult.

The simplest way to reactivate your Skype Credit is go to:

Login, and reactivate your money. It's easy to check again anytime and make sure your funds are active. That is easy. But if you are reading this, you've probably been frustrated by their suggested steps.

Why do Microsoft & Skype make this difficult? Please Don't Mistakenly Pay to buy more Skype Credit when the corporation holds your inactivated funds. These companies have hundreds of millions of customers. How much money has Skype and Microsoft "inactivated" which is unretrieved? Is this a type of embezzlement? I'm willing to start or participate in a class-action lawsuit to force Skype and Microsoft to be more transparent: they should be encouraged to modify their (shady &) badly-designed operations.
