Pinned toot

Does a democracy have to repeat the mistakes/atrocities of Medieval rulers? If yes then will it not be one tyranny replaced by another?
To top that it seems to have sanction of the highest court of the land.
Are we evolving as human(e) beings or regressing into the tribal divisions bygone days?

Jamuns from the tree in our yard. Any takers? There’s plenty where they come from.

Our daughter Arti married Gauthier Lecluyse in San Jose on 16th June in a simple but beautiful ceremony. We could bless them via live streaming app. God Bless!

The likes of Yogendra Yadav and Ram Guha can go to hell. One wants the opposition to stay silent on the current Chinese incursions, the other was peeved because RG spoke about the Rafale scam. These two are complicit, as far as I’m concerned.

@QueenRamonda @InternetKevin @IronMan You're exactly right. I had a feeling in 2016 that the racists who hated Barack Obama and the sexists who hated Hillary Clinton, who were mostly the same people, wouldn't care about all the terrible things about Trump, just so long as they could stick it to the people who voted for the black man and were going to vote for the woman. I just didn't know there were so many of them, or that there were so few of the rest of us who would vote.

American Weapons Manufacturers Are Thriving "Even as the US Economy Suffers
Washington has made it a priority to radically overhaul the military in double time, designating weapons manufacturers as “essential” services during the pandemic."

Hey! Another crisis! Yay! Let's sneak in some more capitalism-happy changes! Probably some more freedoms we can limit and surveiling we can whip in on them at the same time! Shock doctrine Forevar! Why let China have all the fun?

Santana is great. I notice that 'Smooth' came up on the same page. Somehow I'd never heard that until a year or so ago.
