Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

+: the electoral college is a holdover from tweaking
So slave states were placated
∴ Jefferson elected
I heard it on our KPFA!

We are now transparently All of Us. 
Eco Econ Nuke $$$ Guns Power - o dear
We don't need no stinkin' creepin' ice age
We got ‘Republicans’ world wide

People using helpful words are everywhere.
Beware directed-interpretations, short-circuits, as usual.
For pictures, my favorites are Szarkowski and Schjeldahl.
I am not worthy.
And here is a kind of pointing I love.
I won’t do it.
My Flickr friend John Reiff Williams does it:
Giving back, is my read on the expression of this blowing a kiss to the audience. There is a sense of gratitude here Bill (for me) that this act was not all about the surface, but an existential question about the nature of life itself and that as this lovely woman walks off the stage she remains a whole person no more emotional untraumatized as when she walked in. There was an unspoken sense of understanding being expressed. And for everyone that views this image there will be a different read ( i hope) hence the nature of art. Thank you, John

Elie Wiesel,
Always remember that there is one sin we must never commit and it is to humiliate another person or to allow another person to be humiliated in our presence without protesting.

Edith Blumer Thacher (Dane) - her story to me returns from the ‘50s:
My mother’s mother - my grandmother - Hilda Blumer line…
Jewish family from Switzerland

So What?!
I get to love it!

I believe the sad and horrific settler-mentality rules Israel
I believe this is leading to catastrophe for all
Our family is heartbroken and despairing

I was never, straight or gay, sexually assaulted or abused.
Propositioned - of course.
Emotionally - I believe so.

Me Too
It’s not up to us to decide what is and what isn’t Abuse - Injustice.
It’s up to You
African village - Albany - white-supremacies - patriarchies - castes:
Things Fall Apart.
Courts and committees and councils might have at it.
It’s up to Me to Admit and Apologise.
At 17 I attempted what I now understand to be unwanted sexual intercourse.
Luckily! my girlfriend was strong enough of self to stop us.
At 40 I felt guilty for my attraction to a student.
I apologised for any discomfort my sex driven attentions may have caused her.
I did not propose or intend sex. Her reactions are hers and I am guilty.
At 60 I wrongfully used words to suggest sex right there, in the gallery.
It does not matter it was meant as a tribute to her attractiveness. I apologized.
At 69 I wrongfully touched a woman for one second - one thousand one.
Alcohol & Opening puff - Disgusting. I apologized to her.
I have always felt Sex.
How did I get to Out-There?!
It Is Me.
Ironically, and throughout, sexual performing has always been problematic.
In love or casual - it could be impotence - premi - good.
I never knew what was coming - I was never a cocksman - always anxious.
So what?! Bill.
