Happy MLK Day

a day off to do your taxes?

Happy the Day that We Honor A Fella who articulated some of the Great Ideas of All Time ["content of their character... a great street sweeper who did his job well."]. Might it be that the day is better spent discussing the idea[s] rather than the person?

Worth remembering, too, is that this fella was legally & illegally wiretapped by a .gov outfit run by a guy in a dress [back when that meant something] purportedly to keep at bay the promoters of the Worst Idea of All Time [Communism].

History is filled with Humans in all their fallible extremes — not just brightly colored cartoons for children with brightly colored hair.

Moar,

today’s deep question of the day

Are you a pusher or a puller?

Stuff I just don’t understand

With the wide availability of private culture,
why is there still Crap™?


Recognizing incidents of freedom almost always brings a smile to my face and mind.
You know, like posting here where I don’t have to worry about being censored
by someone with an axe to grind at Google or Facebook or Twitter or some such.
Nope, only have to worry about Missy (SondraK) kiboshing me; but that ain’t never happened, yet.
Yep, gimme dat ol’-fashioned freedom of expression…

…while it lasts

(What? No, nothing like the anti-Darwinian question: “If monkeys evolved into humans, why are there still monkeys?”
Well, okay, mebbe a little)

Yay, freedom! (language NSFW)
Fxxk her! Yay, freedom!

A few good wimmin
