A MUST READ from my friend Rich…

*************

Humpty Trumpty by the Narragansett Author John Christian Hopkins (his books are here)

Humpty Trumpty built a big
wall

And made Mexico pay for it
all.

He had Hillary tossed in
jail

Without a trial or even
bail.

He decided to build new
missiles,

Jumps for joy when Putin
whistles.

Humpty Trumpty banned
immigration,

Preached division across the
nation;

Innocent people were frisked and
stopped,

He made money as incomes
dropped.

He used his power to stifle
debate

And said, “Now America is
great!”

Humpty Trumpty had generals
fired

And civil rights all soon
expired.

Women were groped without
redress

There was no freedom of the
press.

Since elections caused too much
strife

He made himself president for
life.

Humpty Trumpty awoke with a
lurch

Started to topple from his
perch,

He couldn’t get hold of the
wall

His hands were just too
small!

All Americans and all their
friends

Didn’t ever want Trumpty back again

 

****** SCARY? Spooky Shit? Just in time for Halloween apparently… (but seriously, are there human clones already out there? What are THEY THINKING? More slaves?)

from President Obama:

…to ready the United States for a future in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a growing role, the White House is releasing a report on future directions and considerations for AI called Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence.  This report surveys the current state of AI, its existing and potential applications, and the questions that progress in AI raise for society and public policy.  The report also makes recommendations for specific further actions.  A companion National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan is also being released, laying out a strategic plan for Federally-funded research and development in AI.   To read the Future of AI report, click here.  For more on the #FutureofAI, including discussions with leading experts on harnessing the potential of AI, including data science, machine learning, automation, and robotics to engage and benefit all Americans, watch the conference and learn more at: http://www.frontiersconference.org.

All things considered, Obama HAS done more for Indian Country. He really has. But it’s a trickle, not a total complete fix. And as I said in the past post, TRILLIONs of dollars for military/ defense (who lost track of $$$) seems such a waste when we need to fix what we have right here.

I was able to meet up with the incredible writing team Jay and Sean and Matt who blog at Assholes Watching Movies this past weekend. They were in the US for the New Hampshire Film Festival. They are THE best movie critics… go look HERE.  I plan to interview Jay and Matt about their important work on behalf of Residential School Survivors and 60s Scoop Adoptees and the Missing-and-Murdered Indigenous Women Movement in Ottawa very soon.

November is Adoption (Beware)Awareness Month. Stay tuned to this blog…
