The daily WTF?

Posted by Lost and lonely memes on Wednesday, September 20, 2017

I’m no fan of Fox News, but is this completely fake?

I’m not exactly loving FB too much either at the moment. I didn’t even know there was a front and back camera on most phones. Hmmmmm…

A FB status I enjoyed today

OMG
Apparently it’s the end of the world tomorrow!!!
If the world does actually end I would like to take this opportunity to tell each and every one of you how much I loved you and how much I have valued any and all time spent with anyone that has crossed my path no matter how it seemed in the moment. Clearly, the only sensible thing left to do as the looming dooms day clock clicks us down to oblivion is to send nudes. I couldn’t bare leaving this unholy existence without truly knowing you body and soul. Please send nudes as the very last truly meaningful thing you do. See you next life time or in my inbox!!

I can’t even begin to comprehend!

So bizarre!

I’ve always been both fascinated and repelled by Liberace. But it took a glitzy fag to get over on the old senior ladies who adored him, yet who never had a clue about his sexuality. On that level alone, he truly was a wonder. I was saddened by them closing the Liberace museum in Vegas. It wasn’t huge, but it was something to see those costumes up close.

Yall got a dirty mind if y'all thought it was something else 😂😂 #HoodClips

The late Dick Gregory remembered.

Rev. William Barber: In fact, I want to channel my inner Dick Gregory. If Dick was commenting today, he might just say, “You know, president kissed black babies in Texas the other day. And some say he’s not a racist or a white supremacist. Well,” Dick might say, “we don’t need to remember the Alamo. We need to remember the okey-doke.” Because when you kiss a black baby in Texas while you’re trying to take babies’ healthcare in D.C.; when you kiss a black baby in Texas, but you’re stealing their voting rights in D.C.; when you kiss a baby or a brown baby in Texas, but you’re stealing their immigrant rights in D.C.—that is the okey-doke.

Or—or if I was to channel my inner Dick Gregory, I can hear him saying to some parts of white America, “We poor black folk and white folks has better come together and stop voting for these people lying to you about tax cuts and this extremism, when all they’re going to do is give more tax cuts to the greedy. You better learn how to work with black folks and brown folks, because when they get all your money and give it to the corporation, and you lose your jobs and can’t pay your light bill, just remember, we all black in the dark.” I’m just saying.

Linda Simpson’s photos and book “Pages” on display at NY Art Book Fair

DAILY BEAST: PAGES by Linda Simpson

Linda Simpson is an iconic drag queen and photographer, whom The New York Times calls an “accidental historian.” With an archive of over 5,000 photos, taken during the 80s and 90s, of drag performers and prominent influencers in the LGBTQ community, Simpson’s photos capture the zeitgeist of that era. She photographed everyone from RuPaul to Lady Bunny, but perhaps the most important person she’s ever captured on film is her transgender friend Page. Simpson explains that she photographed her “mysterious beauty, outlandish sense of style, and provocative performances that that made her a cult figure of downtown’s gender-bending nightlife.” She curated these profound and provocative portraits of Page, to pay homage to her dear friend, in her book PAGES.

PAGES was released in late 2013 by Peradam, and will be available at the fair.

R.I.P. Karen Covergirl

Karen passed away a few weeks ago and these were some pics from her memorial, which I was unable to attend. I always enjoyed working with her at La Escuelita. I’m glad they used her nickname Smiley, which a mutual friend who attended high school with her had told me she was known as pre-transition. It certainly suited her. I was also always fascinated that she had kids and attended school functions as Karen, which must have been a scene! Many fond memories of this Latina diva!

Now do you understand why kids of the 70s are so nuts?

This show wasn’t as insane as New Zoo Revue, but it’s pretty wacky. I actually don’t remember it at all, so maybe it was considered too trippy to be syndicated in Chattanooga.

Not always on board with HRC, but this campaign got my signature.

Sexual Assault Survivor Jordan Dashow on Title IX

"Since the election of Donald Trump, campus sexual assault survivors have not really felt like the Department of Education has their back." Sexual assault survivor Jordan Dashow explains why the latest move to rescind Title IX guidance endangers students. http://hrc.im/StandUp

I’m concerned with rampant sexual assault on campus, regardless of whether it happens to gay or straight people. But it is nuts that Betsy DeVos is attempting to make campus rape less of an issue. Please sign if you agree.

PETITION FROM HRC:

The Trump-Pence Administration just shamefully announced that they are rescinding critical sexual assault protections — making it more difficult for survivors to receive justice.

The Department of Education needs to hear from all of us before the end of the day! Stand with survivors of sexual assault by contacting Betsy DeVos immediately >>

We know LGBTQ Americans face disproportionately high levels of sexual assault and violence. A 2015 study found that 60% of gay and lesbian students and nearly 70% of bisexual students reported being sexually harassed on campus. Studies also suggest that half of transgender people will experience sexual violence at some point in their lifetime. And on top of this, LGBTQ individuals face a stigma that makes it more difficult to report what happened to the authorities.

We’ve made it quick and easy for you to contact Betsy DeVos. By clicking here, you can tweet, post on her Facebook page and send an email to her office. Please take action ASAP and show survivors everywhere that we have their backs.

The weekly WTF?

She serious?

Insightful & scary interview on Trump’s foreign policy speech

Note that he notes that US foreign policy is already overly oriented to constant war, regime change and secret wars of the CIA. His point is that crazy Trump is likely to make something already crazy under Bush and Obama much worse, as his recent threats suggest.

Have you seen the horrifying trailer for IT?

And thenyou run them on the first wearing!

There is no resistance when it comes to unnecessary military spending.

Only 5 Dems (including Bernie Sanders) voted against a whopping defense budget which could fund free college. Both parties exist to pay into and get campaign contributions from the military/industrial complex. Wanna talk about how we can’t afford the ACA or single payer? We could if we chopped our bloated defense budget, but our “leaders” would rather bomb people overseas who never attacked us than ensure the health of out own citizens.

 

INTERCEPT: THE SENATE’S MILITARY SPENDING INCREASE ALONE IS ENOUGH TO MAKE PUBLIC COLLEGE FREE

ONE OF THE most controversial proposals put forward by Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign was a pledge to make tuition free at public colleges and universities. Critics from both parties howled that the pie-in-the-sky idea would bankrupt the country. Where, after all, would the money come from?

Those concerns were brushed aside Monday night, as the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending, enough to have fully satisfied Sanders’s campaign promise. Instead, the Senate handed President Donald Trump far more than the $54 billion he asked for. The lavish spending package gives Trump a major legislative victory, allowing him to boast about fulfilling his promise of a “great rebuilding of the armed services.”
