Anti-democratic GOP et al tweet out inflammatory, often ridiculous bs to get it to spread. They count on it getting under your skin in one way or another.

When you snarkily quote tweet this mis/disinformation, you are, in fact, helping them.

Now why would you wanna do that?
Don’t be a pawn. Image
Check your feefees before you quote tweet.

Give yourself an incentive—
Every time you resist, put money in a jar. Treat yourself. Image
To defeat, don’t repeat
When you embed you make it spread…
If you must… (see next tweet)
Friendly reminder…esp important regarding videos/visual content depicting violence designed to invoke fear, division

DO NOT amplify divisive tweets.
DO NOT snark-tweet known disinfo agents.

Foreign & domestic adversaries amplify these.

When you RT/QT:
1. it gives these messages an algorithmic boost
2. ensures that more ppl see them
3. repetition makes it stick. Image
‘United we stand. Divided we fall.’ &
‘Divide & conquer’
are not just slogans.

To divide is to weaken.
Consensus is the bedrock of US democracy. Image

Large % of KGB subversive activity is devoted to the planning & conduct of disinfo ops to “mold, divide & mislead” other govts/leaders, so they adopt policies & undertakings that are ultimately *advantageous to [USSR]*

Poot’s FSB has beaten, electro-shocked & threatened to fake reporter’s suicide if he didn’t confess to spying.

Putin is scared of fact-based independent news orgs not under his control…especially ones funded by the US— “Glavni Vrag”, their main enemy.

Radio Liberty has been the target of Putin & his predecessors for ages… ImageImageImageImage
The case of Vladyslav Yesypenko, who worked for the Ukr RFE/RL news service follows Poot’s agenda of eliminating any media coverage he can’t control.

The targeting of Yesypenko is only one of many ways the Kremlin is attempting to force RFE/RL out of Russia.

Our sweetest old girl Rokee would’ve been 14yrs old today.

On Friday, April 30, she let me know she was ready to embark on her journey to the Rainbow Bridge.

I’ve been wanting to pay tribute to her since then, but I couldn’t bring myself to look at her photos.
In 2007, shortly after Memorial Day, my future hub & I rented a small house after moving here.

I traveled south from the NE with my 3-legged cat, Mel Gimpson & my pittie, Boomer— having lost my first pittie, Max, at the age of 15 a mere 3 weeks before.
I was just getting used to the idea of having one dog and one cat, having always had a house full of pets, when my future hub comes over to me and says “the neighbors dog had puppies & aren’t they so cute?!😬”

She was named Rokee after my fav dog Cherokee.
