‘Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ (SALUTE!)

– Thom Hartmann’s valuable comments start at the 7:10 mark.

KING: Why I’ll never stand again for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner¬†by Sean King

Thank you Thom Hartmann for being so EXPLICITLY CLEAR as is routine in your handling of knowledge.

So Colin Kaepenick KNOWS ‘THAT OF WHICH HE TALKS’ AND WILL NOT¬† STAND FOR¬† and instead chose to kneel about honorably!

Francis Scott Key was WACK (a mild understatement)!

‚ÄúThe ultra-wealthy of today differ from the ultra-wealthy in past eras in that they have, a lot of them, no stake in the infrastructure of society,‚ÄĚ Magerman said. He‚Äôs seen that their wealth does not depend on the health and stability of the country. In fact, they get rich on volatility and instability.”

Towards ‘Tyrannical-totalitarianism’

Combining terms… to help pinpoint a description (which is fitting in this current domestic socio-political era)

Fasces-DT-Brittanica

“The fasces was carried by the¬†lictors, or attendants, and was characterized by an ax head projecting from a bundle of elm or birch rods about 5 feet (1.5 metres) long and tied together with a red strap; it symbolized penal power. When carried inside¬†Rome, the ax was removed (unless the magistrate was a¬†dictator¬†or general celebrating a triumph) as recognition of the right of a Roman citizen to appeal a magistrate‚Äôs ruling. The discovery of a miniature iron set of fasces in a 7th-century-BCE¬†Etruscan¬†tomb at Vetulonia confirms the traditional view that Rome derived the fasces from the Etruscans. The Roman emperors, beginning with¬†Augustus¬†in 19¬†BCE, had 12 fasces, but, after¬†Domitian(reigned 81‚Äď96¬†CE), they had 24; dictators, 24; consuls, 12; praetors, 6; legates, 5; priests, 1. Lowering of the fasces was a form of salute to a higher official.

Benito Mussolini‚Äôs¬†Fascist Party¬†of Italy was named for the fasces, which the members adopted in 1919 as their emblem. The Winged Liberty dime, minted in the¬†United States¬†from 1916 to 1945, depicts the fasces on its reverse side.” Source:¬†https://www.britannica.com/topic/fasces

 

LIFE ANTHEMS! ~ Games Begin

I love my friends!

One of my MOSST MEANINGFUL favorite Life Anthems.

Since, BUT Only for, this Post-Stroke Rehab period, AFRISPORA has turned into only a blog/vlog.

Appreciate my real world and online folks that have ‘Held Me Down’ as I probably me first heard Q-Tip say in a verse. It radiated a MEANING then almost 30 years ago.

It is easy yet hard to explain but should one have to…? As Jalen Rose puts it, “It’s ‘Cultural!’ Yup, I agree bruh.

SALUTE! ~ Black Panther’s director: ‘Brotha Kofi’ Ryan Coogler

Kofi is Ryan Coogler’s Akan Day Name. Like mine is Kwame (Saturday born), Kofi indicates that he was born on a Friday in 1986 in his case. Each day carries a variety of attributable spiritual (thus behavioral) traits.

He is symbolically my/our folks now, so he gets a nickname as a term of endearment.

Asante bruh!

YE TUMI ACADEMY ~ “China – world power again”

See something just came of falling asleep while listening to news including the disturbing occurrences…you then wake up to what looks to be a credible documentary and Chinese folks accurately stating how American approaches to empire are way different than those of the government in China.
