Peaceful Reoccupation of Native Lands

It is US law to "support reconciliation efforts between the United States and the Native Hawaiian people" (Public Law 103-150) but GI Joe has parked himself all around Hawai'i and stolen lands and harbors. 7 military golf courses on Occupied Oahu!

☹️ 

But in Toronto, Canada, youth has taken peaceful action. Government seems to be listening. 

https://www.vice.com/en/article/m7a7kx/indigenous-youth-have-reclaimed-land-in-toronto-called-wiigwaasikaa

City of Toronto spokesman Alex Burke: "The City supports such initiatives & recognizes the rights of the members of Wiigwaasikaa & others to gather and participate in peaceful protests and acts of political expression. The City also appreciates that Wiigwaasikaa's mandate is relevant to current political issues & ongoing efforts to advance reconciliation."

The Pussy

 The Pussy               by Genki

                 

Them fancy folk cry "coup d'etat"

But we screech loudly "CHEAT!"

If Biden folk can vote when Dead

We can ignore defeat.

 

They called me dum "Deplorable"

In MAGA red chapeau

Melania is adorable

Yet often labeled "Ho"

 

The antifa would change our ways

And take away our guns

Abortion loving lib-dem gays

God Bless Our Fรผhrer's sons!

 

They say our President's perverse

Grabbed sex with pedo mates

George Soros raised the Covid curse

With help from rich Bill Gates.

 

This plague repeatedly was beat!

Now Die - ...Without a sound!

No work, no funds; His toxic tweet:

Let's golf another round!

 

It's make-believe Egyptian swim

I backstroke in denial

The body count looks queerly grim...

A second term? - Sieg Heil!

Trump Nominates Judge Garland !

President Trump could greatly advance his personal chances for reelection by promptly nominating Merrick Garland for the US Supreme Court. Garland is chief judge of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia circuit; Garland was first nominated by the previous administration in 2016.  ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ’“ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Why simply wait for a new administration? The President's personal star would rise, with minor downside (as Republicans control the Senate confirmation process). 

Perhaps Trump's true choice is Garland plus another term for Trump, vs. Ruthless Barrett and Biden? Even if Trump were voted from office, the Garland choice is perhaps the best option to minimize recriminations for The Trump Organization.

"Applicant has a Racial Disorder"

Centuries of favoritism, prejudice & neglect fuel RACISM today.

We still place whitey front & center if using terms such as "white privilege" or "non-white" -- we dodge the fact that race is often a handicap.

Uprooting the weeds and clearing garbage is a tough process when a community was built on theft & genocide.

Hail the Oppressor ?

McKinley High School in Honolulu honors US President William McKinley. But the continuing US military occupation was (and is) unwelcome, and remains widely condemned by Hawaiians. 

Take your foreign arrogance & aggression, and your statue of ugly McKinley, and 

Yanki Go Home!

Don't Touch My Freedom!

At the 1964 Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan claimed there's no Left and Right, only up or down to more or diminished FREEDOM. Aiming at the dream of "the ultimate in individual freedom" he modified: "... consistent with Law & Order." 

The clarification highlights key problems. What if Law permits making soap from enemy fat? Should we be allowed to enslave? Is it OK to steal the property of heathen savages? The more fortunate can perhaps squeeze the disadvantaged till their pips squeak, but is this wise? Law & Order are moving targets. Communities that sacrifice women, cripples, the incautious, etc. are built on shifting sands. 

Serial cheater Lance Armstrong and scumbag Harvey Weinstein each survived by intimidation. America's NOT built solely on bluster. Freedom includes reassessment: questioning what's not (yet) illegal; exposing the NOT OK. 

Mythic imagery may get tarnished?  Let's drain the swamp.

Trump's Wartime Failures

Upset by COVID-19, on 18 March Commander Trump claimed he sees his efforts with the virus "as a Wartime President."

If this is WAR, we follow pompous, dangerous fools

WAR leader failures cause BIG suffering:
• Costly flip-flop from "ALL OK!" to 50,000+ dead
• Can't provide PPE helmets to front-line troops
• His imaginary weapons can't fight the enemy
• Poor coordination; Actively alienates allies
• GI Bill, R&R for Med staff = Zero budgeted
• Spending focus: Bailout Crony industries
• Strategic focus: Simple Duck-and-Cover

Trump Flunkies - Shut Him Up

Yesterday Trump was "brainstorming" in front of an anxious world. Can we inject disinfectant and get clean of COVID-19?

These half-baked ideas are dangerous.

Sunshine Helps - can we drag the sun closer to the USA?

Scientists of the world are ... disgusted

DO NOT INJECT wash liquid to get clean.
Do not experiment on yourself or on others!

Covid Karma?

เค•เคฐ्เคฎ

Covid morbid thoughts:
 

As infectious diseases destroyed Native American 
& Pacific islander communities, lands & resources 
were forcibly stolen. The marauders deliberately tried to erase native history.

Now everyone's told by Those Who've Profited:
Don't Take Advantage.

America's History of Looting

Native people of the Americas & Pacific islands were mown down by introduced illnesses.

More intruders followed, with genocidal privilege and abusive White Man laws.

Native lands & resources, burial spots, sacred places, became "owned" by ruthless non-resident outsiders.

Yankee jackals now fret "their" property may be lost as resurgents fight to survive. Before the Horror.

License to Loot, USA

At this time of trouble, American elected officials eagerly LOOT the US Treasury for private corporate interests. -- 23 March 2020

A Growing Terror

25 years ago I lived in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, doing fieldwork for my Oxford doctorate. Early on 20 March 1995 I'd scheduled a research interview, so left home on the crammed rush-hour subway via Kasuga Station & returned via Korakuen.

I blindly traversed disaster among the multitude. As we traveled, tightly packed, deluded terrorists silently released sarin nerve agent (a deadly poisonous chemical weapon) in five Tokyo subway trains, then disembarked.

A toxic Marunouchi-line train continued on its route for one hour & forty minutes, back & forth & back again, calling three times at many stations while splattering poison & fumes. That train passed through my neighborhood twice (and a prior time w/ culprits pre-release)...

ๅœฐไธ‹้‰„ใ‚ตใƒชใƒณไบ‹ไปถ = Creepy!

Was I injured? Who knows? Japan's system does not care.

Look into Minamata Disease, long-term mercury pollution in Kumamoto Pref. by Japan's Chisso Corp. At least 10,000+ people were harmed (and probably many multiples more).

Though trouble was identified in the mid 1950s, law in Japan is still dealing with it - and very poorly. Just last week a court refused compensation to a number of claimants. More-recent TEPCO Fukushima nuclear liability is similar. People exposed to fallout because of bad design and unsafe corporate decisions, and not allowed to return home, struggle as evacuees. The Abe government clearly hopes to turn the page and ignore the human cost & injustice.

Most are led to believe struggle is futile. 
In Japan, long before achieving proper compensation, you'll die.

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/03/13/national/crime-legal/minamata-disease-claims-rejected-fukuoka-high-court/

BEWARE. Japanese officials & other corporatist governments corruptly interpret JUSTICE. Non-binding apologies, thoughts and prayers ain't worth shit.

mRNA Hopes: Coronavirus Vaccine

With the rise of Covid-19 novel coronavirus, there's a sudden & substantive push to develop vaccine countermeasures.

One of the most hopeful areas is using mRNA, messenger RNA, to induce immunity. Properly designed, the goal is to stimulate immune response by mimicking the antigen production of viral pathogens.

Promising research includes self-amplifying RNA vaccines or replicons. A continuing challenge for replicon utilization is finding effective routes for vaccine administration (delivery barriers).
 
New businesses are quickly being founded / funded. Look for:

mRNA Research
Replicon Research

mRNAtech.com
Repliconics.com

etc...

God Bless Us, Every One!

American Kool Aid

I've been studying about social stratification as seen from South & North Korea ์‚ฌํšŒ ๊ณ„์ธต.

Americans don't talk about this topic sufficiently. We're taught about meritocracy, and the problems of prejudice, but do not really analyze caste & class in the USA.

Some squeamishness stems from American racial prejudices. I'll not write about common conceptions, but some citizens have difficulty shedding linkages to such words as hordes or savages or slaves.

We should recognize Native Americans as victims of deliberate GENOCIDE.  ... as Landowners deprived of their inheritance by voracious intruders led by a handful of resource-extracting capitalists. This is not "maybe" - it is fact.

Americans prefer make-believe: pretending there's a bedrock justice in the land of the free & the brave, while in fact the foundation is theft & bullshit. Do you yourself dare to confront Truth? If so you'll find Truly Criminal Hype.

Anyhow, South Koreans passionately discuss social caste and class rigidities in many books and on TV. The film "Parasite" is a further example.

The typical American could learn valuable lessons from South Korean analyses of social stratification. While my Korean abilities are poor, I'm smart enough to recognize bits of their wisdom.

"Difference in wealth under the capitalist system is inevitable. The problem is the wealth gap. Instead of leaving the economy to market alone, the government should actively intervene in fair distribution and make efforts to bridge the wealth gap. A good society should be equipped with a social safety net that does not give up what is human, meaning you'll not be poor in any job. Minimum salary guaranteed, and not undermining dignity. So valuable jobs exist but poor jobs do not exist. Young people can then challenge a variety of jobs that aren't ninth-class civil servants. Through this, our communities will cultivate many more types of lives. If diversity is guaranteed, opinions will inevitably increase and our tolerance index will naturally rise. If the tolerance index rises, our society will be able to move away from "focus on self" and be happy with solidarity and cooperation."

Republican Bloomberg is an Asshole

Occupy Wall Street began in New York City's Zuccotti Park on 17 Sept 2011. Occupy drew attention to oligarchy injustices and how corporations reach deep into our lives.

Occupy protests soon flared-up around the globe, educating & debating about political corruption, corporate environmental destruction and wealth inequality. Each gathering, each encampment, became a place for education. Financial district parks, typically dark & empty at night, grew lively. Support and donations quickly flowed from surrounding communities. Growing political awareness worried the oligarchs.

After 60 days, Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg used paramilitary riot police to forcibly uproot the Wall Street encampment - and tried to block the press from covering the eviction. ๐Ÿ˜  Nine years later (9 years gone), suppressed anger & community pain undoubtedly are...
Worse!

Wake Up World. Democracy is shit-on by big shots.
Democracy can allow us some true Public Spaces. 

Zuccotti Park was never so important as in those 60 days.

Occupy Stockholm lasted at Brunkebergstorg in front of Sveriges Riksbank (Sweden's National Bank, the world's oldest central bank) from 15 October 2011 to 29 February 2012 (138 days) before being similarly attacked & crushed by riot police. The site's now a stark corporate-controlled concrete plaza, as some years later developers ripped-up all the earth & landscaping, and cut-down every tree. Very GRIM.


Victims of Violence:
          return tamely for more beatings...

Build PRIDE. The intruder is the parasite.

Disgrace. John Bull imperialists claim "discovery" justifies theft & murder, keeping stolen wealth & criminal proceeds.

Their permanent universe revolves around English-speakers & Yankees, where non-whites are foreigners, savage, and ethnic.

To aggressively topple governments & destroy communities by large-scale military land appropriation is CRIMINAL.

Colonized peoples are stripped of inheritance, property & PRIDE.

Recognize abuse. Fight for inheritance, fight for culture, against occupier manipulation.
Build Local Pride.

Some inherit, others do not

Aggressive intruders stole lands & murdered peaceful locals, and now label indigenous efforts to reclaim inheritance as favoritism or anti-white racism. Struggles continue against theft & genuine racism. 

If you think indigenous people should "Get Over It" you are part of the problem. 

Intruder aggressions are becoming more extreme in Hawai'i. Local resistance is increasing. Many Hawaiians refuse to submissively allow heavily militarized, American-occupied Hawai'i as proper or legal. Acts of War on Hawaiians begun with Capt. James Cook are continuing since 1778.
