@USAmbIceland @usembreykjavik In #deathtotals this impostor leads.
At 100000 our nation bleeds.

Try using SCIENCE.
Trump’s malfeasance?
It’s his failed appliance.
Donald flubbed the #pandemic. Response was anemic!
Upon Trump there exists no reliance.

"Smaller U.S. cities are about to witness the rapid acceleration in coronavirus cases that New York is seeing."

"Nearly 15% (almost 13K) of all those infected in Spain are health care workers, hurting hospitals' efforts to help the tsunami of people gasping for breath."
"#Moscow went on its own lockdown Monday as all of Russia braced for sweeping nationwide restrictions. The Russian capital of 13 million accounts for over 1,200 of the country's more than 1,800 coronavirus cases."

My first REAL job as an immigrant in America was as a Mail Room Clerk. Temp. Through an Agency. In the mid-90s.

We collect, sort and distribute inbound/outbound mails to/from about 10,000 employees on Campus, twice a day. It was a "tough" job because we're required to stand all
day, except during breaks, even when there's no mail to sort or deliver.

This was just as "The Internet" was starting to become a Thing. Any major magazine/newspaper made it a point to have one or more "Internet" news items on its cover, so you couldn't miss the news that the
"Internet" was going to happen.
As a green-eyed, hungry, young immigrant, this excited me so much that I had no choice but to break protocols and immerse myself in sponging up everything I could about this new Thing. As a mailroom Clerk, I was close to the front row (not onstage)

Publish where, how, what you want to publish, when you want to publish, not where everyone else is publishing just because those places may have an air of prestige, desirability. Publish where the people you care most about will access to work, without others' imposed boundaries.
#Publish in many different kinds of places, with different scales. Be a human body that reaches out to the exact people -- your core -- you wish most to #read and be moved by your work.
I have this suspicion that your "core" readership is not "The Academy," but the folks, the gente, the familia/pamilya, mga kapwa-tao, mga kapuso.

How do you best reach them but to go where they are and where they gather, to bring your presence and your work there.

“The Richest Man in Babylon” (George S. Clason 1926), is full of financial nuggets in a collection of parables set 8,000 years ago in ancient Babylon.
The seven “cures for a lean purse” may be over 90 years old, but the principles are just as important today as they were then:

1. “Start thy purse to fattening”
Pay yourself first

2. “Control thy expenditures”
Live within your means
3. “Make thy gold multiply”
Let your money work for you

4. “Guard thy treasures from loss”
Protect your wealth

#Islamaphobia: an irrational fear of Muslims.

Do #gays suffer from #Islamophobia because they rationally analyze the commands of #Islam and #conduct of its #adherents?
Is it #irrational #fear to see the lunacy in the eyes of a #religious #teacher who tells his #aptpupils that #homosexuals are what they are because #Allah allowed #Satan to #finger the #anuses of the male babies of #infidels?
Really?

I mean, #fundamentalist #Christian #adherence to a #literal #sevenday #creation has been the #mockworthy material of the ilk of @billmaher forever!

Am I allowed to be outraged by this, or does that make me "antisemitic" ?

- Video of a Palestinian child being assaulted by Israeli police this morning.
By @syedakif17

Isreali goons dressed in uniforms violating basic human rights of Palestinians 24/7.

Constitution of Israel is based on Talmud where Goyims have no rights.

If a Zionist kill anyone, he's not to be punished, he's owns gentiles.

(1) Forget the headlines from the lying, leaking, liberal MSM. Read the official statement here:

whitehouse.gov/briefings-stat…
(2) The MSM critiques of the President's statement focus on peripheral aspects like his use of exclamation marks. Reflect on that, against the incredibly serious points made about Iran, international terrorism, global oil prices etc.

Which side is talking about what MATTERS?
(3) Every point POTUS made was already known to me, & to you, if you've been following actual events & trends, instead of the MSM spin.

YES the murder of Mr Khashoggi was AWFUL & it is NOT condoned by Trump, the US, or me, or you.

A President must consider the whole picture.
