Are you ready to suit up and save our democracy?

Hey gang! There’s a critical Judiciary Committee meeting happening tomorrow in the House of Representatives, regarding Rep. Nadler’s special resolution asking for the Department of Justice to release all information on Trump and his possible business conflicts - an essential step in understanding whether or not our current president has compromising ties to Russia. There are murmurs in the (trustworthy) media that the committee plans to scuttle the resolution and hopes the news will be buried in Trump’s scheduled Tuesday circus. 

If you have a rep on this committee, please call them and ask them to put America’s national security before their own Republican party interests. If you don’t have a rep on the committee, do like I did and call the direct line to say the same thing. The people who answer the representatives’ phones are super kind, they never argue, they only kindly take your message and pass it along. Here’s a quick script, and some handy-dandy phone numbers too!

“I am a constituent in Representative’s [name] district. I would like to insist that he/she support the Resolution Of Inquiry introduced by Representative Nadler seeking key info on the Administration’s business conflicts and Russian ties. It is essential to our democracy that elected officials and their staff be held to the highest possible ethical standards. Furthermore, the Constitution has an Emoluments Clause for the specific purpose of preventing foreign governments from asserting undue influence on the President. Please demonstrate your patriotism by supporting this and any similar resolutions. Thank you.”

Bill Ray. The Hells Angels. 1965.

The club that; to this day serves, as a living, brawling, embodiment of our schizoid relationship with the rebel: the original Angels…after Oakland of course. Buzzard, Hambone, Big D and others with their equally tough old ladies, photographed by Bill Ray in Cali in the mid-sixties.

Channel 4 seems not to know the difference between Noel and Richmond :-D Asking the man behind the Elmo coat, the mirrorball suit, and a giant tshirt dress of his own painted face to brighten his wardrobe? Do they quite know what they’ve let themselves in for??

Ahhh... I would've loved if you took it as a compliment, But its up to the eye of the beholder I guess? But forgive me if i hesitate... im not lying lol! Im hey! Im just a horny 19 year old from Richmond California!

i’d take that as a ‘compliment’ if i was a porn artist, but i’m not. if you’re truly serious that’s kinda scary, m’dude.

you’re lucky i’m 18.

Last night for a #BlackGirlsMatter protest, we were standing on a median holding signs that said “Shut shit down for Black girls” and “Black Girls Matter” for Justice for McKinney. We were approached by two officers that said that we were unlawfully using a median because it’s dangerous for others’ safety. They came up to us a second time when we were planning on crossing the street stating that they would cite us for breaking the law. At the time there were five of us on the median, two people being white-presenting people of color and three of us being Black. Only the Black people were approached about being unlawful and threatened with citation. After having four more cop cars (7 cops to begin with for being on a median) and the Sargent coming to speak with us about how dangerous we were being, we were asked to give our information. I provided my information hoping they would stop with summoning me for unlawful use of a median because they already have identified me as a visible activist/ trouble maker (because I’m active in Richmond for fighting against police brutality and white supremacy). When they asked the two other Black folks I was with for their information, both of them refused - and rightfully so due to the fact that a.) We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, b.) the arresting officer/ instigator was frightening and on a sadistic ego trip and we didn’t feel comfortable talking with him, and c.) Heaven is a Black queer woman with medical disabilities and Shan is a Black queer transmasculine boi that does not have matching identification. The arresting officer (Officer Aaron D. Henning, Richmond PD Badge #3039 - also the arresting officer that is brutalizing Shan in the video) decided that he would arrest them because “they think they don’t have to listen to me or do what I say.” Right before they arrest Shan, he offers his information and they explained that “that ship has sailed, he has to take it to the magistrate.” But in arresting him, Officer Henning started off being rough because he was more mad about our inability to do exactly what he wanted just because he’s a white man telling Black kids get off a median that all Richmond residents use to cross the street or even socialize on. They ended up releasing Shan and Heaven because unlawful use of a median is only valid if you’re soliciting money. But my summons for the same charge is still valid until I go to court, and they were charged with impeding traffic and resisting arrest…. Because we stood on a median while being Black and just happened to be calling out the same behavior perpetuated against us.

Tyreese doesn’t know much of what happened after he was
bitten.  He just remembered being so close to death that he
was seeing the faces of the dead  ( something he had heard
that Rick was familiar with  —  seeing the faces of the dead
anyway ).  Being moved,  riding in the car,  it was all fuzzy.  He
just knew that he was missing his hand and part of his arm
now,  they were somewhere between Richmond and D.C., 
and they would have to start going on foot.  Tyreese wasn’t
so sure that he would be up for that.

He caught Rick’s gaze,  suddenly realizing he hadn’t seen
Judith yet.  ❝Is Judith okay?❞
