The Mind of RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…

Little Venice to Abbey Road: Sporting and Musical Landmarks

a post from London Wlogger. it’s interesting that a few seconds by the Beatles on a crosswalk infused the spot with so much meaning?

London Wlogger

Welcome one and all 🙂 Last week my walk ended in Italian Gardens, and the theme of Italy continues as this week I start in Venice, well Little Venice! No Italian adventures just yet! I’ll then go along my favourite stretch of water, the Regent’s Canal, before going past The Liberal Jewish Synagogue and St John’s Wood Church. In between that I’ll be passing by Lord’s Cricket Ground and ending at a musical landmark, Abbey Road. So, let’s begin the journey!

mpp Little Venice to Abbey Road

Located near Paddington and Maida Vale, Little Venice is a scenic and very picturesque riverside area. Its history can be traced back to the 1810s when a pool was created where the Regent’s Canal and the Paddington arm of the Grand Junction Canal met. Back then it was known as the Paddington Broadwater.

I Get Accused of Being a Liberal

From Dream Big, Dream Often

Dream Big, Dream Often

Life isn’t as hard as we make it out to be. The problem is that many people are quick to put their “beliefs” ahead of human relationships. I would hazard a guess that many of my friends who constantly post hate filled memes about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have never had the opportunity to get to know the person behind the persona. I am betting that many of my Christian friends have never met someone who is transgender and had a simple conversation. Most of my friends have never met any Muslims and talked about their life and/or upbringing. Racism and hate are a tricky thing. They are used by the powers to keep people divided. The weak minded will continue to push hate and racism in many different forms: memes, posters, posts, media shares, etc. All the while thinking they are simply protecting their own “beliefs.” Unfortunately the…

Thirty Days of Fox News

Art by Rob Goldsten
Fox News – Your Source for Disinformation and Lies.

I tracked Fox News headlines on social media for thirty+ random days and took screenshots.

I saw the following logical fallacies: ad hominem attacks, appeals to ignorance, and the repeated use of the word many as in #ManyPeopleAreSaying.

This fallacy is called the Bandwagon Approach.

The Bandwagon Approach is an,  “Appeal to widespread belief, an appeal to common practice and peer pressure. If the discussion is about social conventions, such as “good manners”, then this is a reasonable line of argument. However, in the 1800’s there was a widespread belief that bloodletting cured sickness. These people were not just wrong, but horribly wrong, because it made people sicker. Clearly, the popularity of an idea is no guarantee that it’s right.  A common justification for bribery is everybody does it; in the past, this was also a justification for slavery.

June 28th, 2016 from Newsmax: Many Illegals have tuberculosis says one Border Patrol Agent.

Liberalism and Conservatism are points of view and both points of view are
needed for a balanced political debate.

Genuine conservatism is about preserving the best of our traditions while working with Liberals to move our country forward.

There was a time when liberals and conservatives agreed that respectful disagreement was in the best interest of the country.

To someone who was raised on journalists like Walter Cronkite and a news media regulated by the fairness doctrine a news network or media outlet that shapes the
news to fit its dogma is something I’d expect from one of the fictional tyrannies in Mission Impossible.

Why is Obama ‘so adamant’ to protect Islam?

It’s the President’s job to protect and defend Constitution and to represent the interests of all citizens.

Islāmic Americans are among the people President Obama swore by oath to represent.

3.3 million Muslims live in the United States.

These are the lies that Fox News tells its viewers every freaking day and no one holds it accountable.

And when Fox News isn’t lying about Hillary and Obama it’s talking heads spout bullet points from White Supremacists.

Slaves were Housed and Fed it was all good.
Slaves were well fed and had decent longings provided by the Government.

O’Reilly’s idiotic comment is historically inaccurate and inflammatory.

The ‘government’ did not feed and house slaves.

Slaves were fed and housed by their owners..
