Broken Rules

England is drooping. India defeated the English women's cricket team for a third-straight one-day international whitewash, and the English whinged at the final play, a mankad dismissal or non-bowler run-out (essentially a baseball pick-off, where the runner is caught leading by too much). Legitimate & within the rules, why is it controversial? The BBC quotes "I can't tell you what ill feeling this is going to create" - discounting centuries of pro-colonial propaganda, racism & discord.

Visiting Hawai'i? Hawaiian PUNCH

Hawaiians today will not grovel to threats of biblical damnation, and all condemn deceitful leadership in Yankee's toxic military. Life is Tough; colonial parasites beware! 

Local needs ignored. Parasites from elsewhere been getting fat on kanaka...


Let's serve each incoming visitor with the same care we gave Capt. Cook

Pissin' in the Wind

Since the military poisoned Hawai'i's water (Red Hill), more people notice basic disrespect. Many remember the US Army soldier trespassing on Kilauea's rim who slipped over the edge (Wed May 1st 2019 about 18:30). After a costly rescue, his name remains unknown... Why no ACCOUNTABILITY? Was he showing-off to his GI buddies by urinating over the edge?  🚽🚫

Sweden's Liberals Become Dangerous

Sweden's former PM Stefan Löfven & former Liberal Party party leader Bengt Westerberg claim the ultra-right Sweden Democrats are a danger to democracy: "SD plans for restrictions on the freedom of public service media, depicting journalists as enemies of society, demands for party-political branding of journalists, reduction in press support, reduced support for student unions, calls to cut billions from the budget for public culture, removal of all books in foreign languages ​​from libraries, prohibition of pride flags in public, discrimination against non-Swedish citizens, and questioning of diversity in multiple ways." (DN Debatt 4 Sept; translation by The Local) 

"Begränsningar i public services rörelsefrihet, utpekande av journalister som samhällets fiender, krav på partipolitisk stämpling av journalister, neddragning av presstödet, minskat stöd till studieförbunden, nedskärningar med miljardbelopp i de offentliga kulturbudgeterna, borttagande av alla böcker på främmande språk från biblioteken, förbud mot prideflaggor i offentlig regi, diskriminering av icke svenska medborgare, ifrågasättande av mångfalden i olika avseenden." 

I guess ultra-right volk without swastika tattoos are maybe most dangerous.

Because the ultra-right is teaming with the Liberal Party, former leader Bengt Westerberg now refuses to vote Liberal.

Will Bunch - "After the Ivory Tower Falls"

Student loan forgiveness is a hot topic this month, and many right-wing Americans are now preaching about irresponsibility, facing consequences, and a supposed crippling cost to partially bailing-out student loans.

But this expenditure is one of many policy choices that might bust America. Corporate giveaways, militarism, and taxing the wealthy are others.

"After the Ivory Tower Falls" by Will Bunch is timely & terrific. It's hugely important each American looks inward to their own anger, fears, and hopes of college. We've been indoctrinated. We all -- university grads, deplorables, and those in-between -- dance as if to a military marching tune. Still reading ...
