Evergreen BLM Rally


Evergreen, CO, population 9000, 97% white, had a Black Lives Matter protest today. Over 300 people showed up, babies to seniors, wearing masks and carrying signs, to show solidarity and listen to two black speakers - 12 year old Felix, Ethiopian, and the only black kid in his Evergreen Middle School class - spoke with courage and humor and honesty. Very inspiring.


Then Chris Burroughs the biracial drag queen genius organizer actor, read out the names of black Americans killed by the police for 8:46 for George Floyd. He spoke truth to power about the discrimination he faced growing up here and advocated for real change aka #defundthepolice and finally put it back on us - it's up to we white people to do the work. One day he will be more famous than Trey Parker.


There's a community he(art) installation at the Center for the Arts where people can write names to honor and other messages of solidarity on hearts and stick them to the wall. 


Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart, you just gotta poke around ❤️🖤🌲

WTF Wednesday: Fist Faces, Hacking Democracy

Hello Wednesday! Hello WTF!

First up, your fist becomes a real face. 

Check out this comprehensive book.

Onto the fun subject of election fraud, we watched the documentary "Hacking Democracy" -  billed as "the disturbingly shocking HBO documentary Hacking Democracy bravely tangles with our nation's ills at the heart of democracy. The film the Diebold corporation doesn't want you to see, this revelatory journey follows tenacious Seattle grandmother Bev Harris and her band of extraordinary citizen-activists as they set out to ask one simple question: How does America count its votes?" 

Spoiler alert: the Diebold and ES&S machines, memory cards, and central tabulators can be easily hacked and rigged for any desired outcome. The machines in the film are still used today. They run Windows XP. We can do better. 

Watch it for free here: Hacking Democracy.  

A crucial 7 minutes of the film is here: 

The film was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Long Form Investigative Journalism and features an election official in Tallahassee who used to go to Kevin's baseball games. 

Last but not least it's a dog who looks high as hell. 

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.
