Turnabout Thursday

1a

The United States cannot be a moral or ethical country until it faces up to the realities of US empire and the destruction it causes around the world. The U.S. undermines governments (including democracies), kills millions of people, causes mass migrations of people fleeing their homes, communities and countries and produces vast environmental damage.

A new coalition, the Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases , held its inaugural event January 12-14, 2018 at the University of Baltimore in Maryland. The meeting was framed by a Unity Statement that brought together numerous peace and justice organizations. The basis for unity was:

“U.S. foreign military bases are the principal instruments of imperial global domination and environmental damage through wars of aggression and occupation, and that the closure of U.S. foreign military bases is one of the first necessary steps toward a just, peaceful and sustainable world.”

      If he did hope for such a thing, a couple hours later he would have forgotten that thought and moved on to something else.

      Another horror story. Our country is wallowing in stories like that. And stories of cops abusing and killing black men. So much injustice.

    Stopped raining so I took a nippy walk to the TVD bridge and back in 48 minutes again. No birds at all.

      I assume 14 minutes to the Hillside Cafe but I seem to have forgotten to stop the stopwatch. Dinner is not memorable but it is filling and nutritious.

        Up to Bryan Hall for the oboe concert and home adds 16 minutes to this round of stick walking. Today is 48+14+16=78 minutes. Told Alice afterwards that she looks stunning. At 22 she does.

        Day 5: 222+78=300 minutes.

    I saw you Pop goes the weasel comic on yesterday’s thread. That comic was and is one of my all-time favorites.

    I looked at your VA link. I’m going to send the link to Pete, have him read it. If they give me anything, it will probably be $300.

    Thanks for the link, Den.
