Que saudades! Image
This song comes close to expressing the joy that samba brings

The floats are amazing! The parade of them goes on and on, each more spectacular than the last... Image
The joy! Image

I think many kind-hearted liberal folks might think "fighting back" means lying and cheating like the GOP.

It doesn't have to.

We can fight for democracy and rights using something called the OODA loop.

"The strength of OODA thinking is that incorporates adversaries."
Many kind-hearted people don't like confrontation.

OODA is perfect for you.

It lets you be strategic in such a way that your opponent defeats themselves.
The OODA concept was created by Colonel John Boyd
fighter pilot, dogfighter,
designer of jets, teacher, leader,
and an exceptionally literate master strategist.

(He was a nicer guy than photo would suggest) 🙂

how many tweets did you see of the fascist holiday card today?


how many tweets did you see about the Crumblies, Oxford, the victims, and potential solutions to the problem?

The GOP war machine is OODA-looping us right in front of our eyes.
I mean they have successfully diverted some energy away from a tragedy that hurts their position and directed it onto a position that

a) frustrates their opponents (we the outraged)
b) solidifies their base

I don't really mean that it's a spooky psyop (but it kinda is).
The GOP reacts more quickly and has a set of predictable responses at the ready.

No crappy Rs were being forced to answer why their default platform is to support public school shooting.

I think many pro-democracy folks think "fighting back"
means lying and cheating like the GOP.

It doesn't have to.

We can develop an mastery of a highly effective
strategic framework called the OODA loop.

"The strength of OODA thinking is that incorporates adversaries."
OODA stands for

* Observe
* Orient
* Decide
* Act

... and continuously repeat.
Observe means to have situational awareness, to identify dangers, to spot trends, to notice vulnerabilities and possibilities in the problem at hand.

Mindfulness of what is going on inside, and in your community, and in the world.

I asked some old high school friends who fell into the alt-right and became dedicated Trump supporters what they thought about the whole General Flynn #Satangate scandal.
I know and respect how loyal and dedicated they are to their Faith and to their patriotism, even though I think they go overboard with the flags on their trucks, lawns, porches.

They value PURITY of FAITH, and I share and respect that view.

Some of their responses:

"Flynn is a con man"

"Flynn is a liar, and a traitor"

"Flynn is a traitor to God and a traitor to America.
Impure faith. Impure blood."
