In the early 1950s a new fashion trend took over Britain's youth. An adaptation of Edwardian romanticism; drape jackets, tailored waistcoats, drainpipe trousers and chunky shoes. It soon gained a name: the Teddy Boy!

Let’s take a look at it... #WednesdayThoughts
The Edwardian suit was introduced in 1950 by Savile Row tailors looking for a ‘new style' for young men. Taking inspiration from the Edwardian dandy the new look created a narrow silhouette offset with a fancy waistcoat. Young military officers were early aficionados.
Soon however the new style was being copied by Britain’s working class youth, as a revolt against the drab conformity of the post-war years.

Looking like your grandad was suddenly ‘in’!

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Organization and other radical missionary outfits are #CapitalizingOnCovid, deliberately and explicitly playing on people's fears of the pandemic to gin up conversions.

This is predatory. And it's being celebrated in @CTmagazine

#WednesdayThoughts
That's right, these predatory behaviors are treated as beneficent and heroic in *the same* Christianity Today you all thought was so wonderful because it published Mark Galli's op-ed making a conservative Christian case that Trump should be removed from office.
I can't believe it still needs to be said, but there is no such thing as "kinder, gentler" culture wars. And there is no proselytizing without objectification. Evangelicalism is anti-pluralist. Even the "moderate" kind

A few days after the counter attack led by President Idris Dēby that saw the capture of the arms store of Boko Haram & fleeing of the insurgents, their leader, Ibrahim Shekau in a viral video, has gone spiritual & is begging to be left alone

#TheDiscuss
Is this the same Shekau terrorizing the @NigeriaGov , @HQNigerianArmy & the same group that ambuished & killed at least 50 Nigerian soldiers in March? aljazeera.com/news/2020/03/5…
Why then has Boko Haram continued to prey on the Nigerian military & citizens unhindered?

Recent news reminded me of a woman who led a high-visibility, trusted role in Naval leadership.

*Superiors and peers turned blind eyes to major red flags. She continued to be promoted.*

By the time she was fired, she left a trail of destruction in her wake.

Folks, how much longer are you willing to be a prisoner in your own home?

Are you waiting for someone to save you?

From my understanding how law works, the current system needs our consent to operate. We give "it" power not the other way around.

People make me angry when they say that only girls need #PersonalSafety sessions,boys just need to learn to respect girls. Here's my question to you, do you think boys aren't abused or don't deserve safe childhood? Read the petition & you would know change.org/breakthesilence
Our sessions for sex education &/ personal safety #Training need to be gender neutral, boys go through sexual abuse and are silenced. They don't have a language just as girls don't. They need empowerment just as much & even more.
Now the concept of boys learning to respect girls/women, all humans need to learn to respect each other and the environment. Now this knowledge should not be gender biased. If we put girls & boys in diff rooms & teach them separately that's not gonna solve anything.

Before the imperialists interrupted traditional systems of govt, Kings reigned supreme & were next only to God.

Interruptions were not only done by imperialists, kingdoms invaded & dominated other kingdoms leading to wars, displacements, slavery

For Nigeria, the British Indirect Rule preserved traditional institutions but watered down their powers extensively, making them 'figure heads'.

The current reality is that an Oba, Kabiyesi, Obong, Sultan, Olu or Emir is entitled to ONE VOTE
#TheDiscuss
#WednesdayMotivation
What then is responsible for the reactions to the removal of Emir Sanusi II?
His personality?
Our emotional attachments to traditional institutions?
Our true desire for right over wrong?
The perception of corruption on the Chief Antagonist, 'Dollar-Man'?

ABOUT SELF GOVERNING

"You cannot give self-government to anybody. He has got to earn it for himself. You can give him the chance to obtain self-government, but he himself out of his own heart must do the governing. He must govern himself.
2)
That is what self-government means. . . . There must be control. There must be mastery, somewhere, and if there is no self- control and self-mastery, the control and the mastery will ultimately be imposed from without."

Hindu shops were ransacked & locked up by Muslin mobs
The shops were in Masjid Premises run by wakf board!
Listen to what he says -Did any political party support these #Hindus?
Muslins have made the areas a mini Pak & many terrorist r hiding in Masjid it seems!
#Secularism
They say no #Hindus should be allowed to run shops in the areas & openly proclaiming to ransack😡
But they r free to run shops around all our temple lands & premises!
Just take Kabaleeshwarar temple or Thiruvannamalai temple-they r the ones who run all kind of shops?

Posting this again bc the answer is still unclear. On Ingraham tonight @sendavidperdue said witnesses mean Senate shutdown.
Can they go into recess while adjudicating in court with a simple majority vote? Does it mean a rule change to do so? How many votes needed for that?
In the Clinton impeachment they made a deal for 3 witnesses and recessed while they were deposed.

In this case who deposes witnesses? The Senators? House Managers? Defense team? All of the above?
At this time Schuner is saying no deals on witnesses. They want to force individual votes on each and every one to draw out the process according to @SenatorLankford and @MarshaBlackburn
Also individual votes for each of the docs they want.

VERY interesting posit here: "consider the case of Donald Trump. Can any Senator honestly say, while under an Oath to render impartial justice, that he or she would vote to acquit a President of the opposing Party if it were proven that the President used security assistance as
2-" leverage to extort a phony political investigation from a foreign nation? We find that utterly implausible. This is a classic abuse of public authority for private gain – in this case, political rather than financial.
3-"Any Republican Senator who would vote to remove a Democratic President for such misconduct must, by their Oath, vote to remove Trump..if Senators reflect on the seriousness and the content of the Oath to do impartial justice under the Constitution, they may prove the cynics

1. Thoughts on Trump's Iran address.

You want NATO more involved in the Middle East? Maybe you shouldn't badger our allies for upholding a deal you unilaterally pulled out of.

Also maybe you shouldn't have spent your whole first term bashing NATO. Just sayin' 🤷‍♀️

2. When, exactly, did the United States become entirely energy independent?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Except actually we don't because that bizarro claim was entirely made up. Even for someone who lies every time he opens his mouth, just... really?

#NoWarWithlran
3. I see what you did there, bringing up al-Qaeda and ISIS and going on quite a bit before declaring that they're natural enemies of Iran.

While this speech was framed to make our government seem reluctant to start a war with Iran, remember that Pompeo wants nothing more.

1/What bothers me the most about medical providers today is not that they aren't intelligent. They most certainly are.

It's that they lack a sense of urgency with patients even when the facts are RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. Here are some examples:
2/
An 87 year old man with high blood pressure and heart disease has leg pain and non-healing leg ulcers.

Tests show 2 of 3 leg arteries are 100% blocked. The pain is so bad he sleeps sitting up.

He is told to follow up as an outpatient to get ultrasound and cardiac clearance.
3/
A 28 year old man with HIV has a new diagnosis of syphilis, headaches, and blurry vision.

STI guidelines state a new syphilis diagnosis with neurologic/visual symptoms should get spinal tap/eye exam.

He is told he doesn't need that, gets 1 shot penicillin and sent home.

Random thought...

When the traitors are "found out", actions verified with incontrovertible evidence, tried, convicted and sentenced,

Do ALL the law, rulings and action/s they transacted become nullified and "over ruled"?

Asking for a few million friends...
