Election 2020: the Tyrant Kings Sally Forth

“A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.” — opening line of Gravity’s Rainbow The Democratic Party’s crescendo screams at us but is somehow hollow. MSNBC — the official mouthpiece of the Democratic Party — has dropped all pretense of being a news network. They complain, of course, that Fox News has dropped all pretense of being a news network. Both are right. The Green nominees — Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker — are drowned out.

Sugarcane Nightmare:

Our Children must not live in a Hazard Zone! Florida’s Palm Beach County braces for its anfpnual “burn season,” which begins each year in October and runs for six months at least through March to as late as May.  The Florida sugar industry begins its harvest season for 400,000 acres (625 square miles) of sugarcane fields.  Assuming a six-month burn season, this means there were approximately 43 fires per day in 2019.

Green Party under Siege:  Wisconsin edition

Ballot access for an independent presidential candidate requires at least 2,000 valid signatures.  On August 4, 2020, Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins and vice presidential candidate Angela Walker filed 3,996 signatuires.   Those signatures were accepted by the State of Wisconsin.  Three days later, a complaint was filed on the grounds that Walker had changed her address during the petition period.  Although each group of petitions had listed the correct address at the time of their gathering (the only requirement) and the state had been notified of the change, the bogus challenge was accepted.  On a 6–0 vote, the Wisconsin Election Commission subsequently removed Hawkins and Walker from the Wisconsin ballot.

Safety Harbor Mayor Surrenders to Anti-Black Lives Matter Residents.

A hashtag.  A response.  An outrage.  Heartfelt.  It ignited.  It moved.  #Blacklivesmatter resonated with individuals that repeatedly watched Black lives executed by hands of police or White folks who used their privilege to murder unarmed Black lives. In 2013, after the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the unnecessary slaughter of Trayvon Martin, Alicia Garza posted using the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter — and the rest is history.  #BLM became a passion.  Black Lives Matter started as a movement in a moment and became a principle.  Black Lives Matter is a profound statement.  A declaration.  We have witnessed a profound uprising by those ignited by the fire of Black Lives Matter! Therefore, my question to those who are calling for the disregard of #BLM is:  Shouldn’t Black lives matter?
