First power outage in weeks, and it’s lasted at least 10 minutes as of writing this. There was heavy rain this morning, but it let up quickly.
Getting word that the power outage is due to damage from a fire and won’t be fixed until after 5pm.
Yesterday, friends noted how dry it has been the last few years; I’ve been rained on less than a handful of times while commuting to or from work. That isn’t a concern this year, as I’m working from home.
The protests rage on in the USA, as the 1% cower behind their angry and violent police mobs. Police have been shooting people in the face, in an apparent homage to the Dicktatorial Cheney. A homeless man in a wheelchair was bleeding from his forehead after police assaulted him. A more famous incident in Buffalo had an older man go to hospital with a serious head injury as officers shoved him backward. The 2 who touched him were suspended and the 57 other piggies went wee wee wee half the way home, resigning from the special goon squad, while remaining paid officers. Their leader announced that the cops were just following orders to leave the injured man unconscious on the pavement/sidewalk.
Just following orders!
A photojournalist lost an eye to cops shooting it out.
Also in Minneapolis, journalists were beaten and pepper sprayed as they fled the violent cop mob.
The American police are out of control, but in Canada there was another murder of an Indigenous woman by an officer just days ago.
The PM was kneeling in solidarity, but it seems like more of an empty gesture when he fails to use his real power. It’s no different from when he marched in Greta’s climate rally while pushing ahead with a doomsday pipeline project.
His 20 seconds of silence response to Trump’s gassing of protesters to get his upside down bible photo op, was not well recieved for a similar reason. One time for show, but now he needs to help people hurt by the Republicans.
The end game for this may be no change, but it’s looking like the start of another Occupy Wall Street level movement. Maybe another American revolution.
