Sunday Morning

Over several decades ago there was a genocide in Africa…..few remember it because it was ignored by the US government until it was too late….about a million people died in a few months of murderous rampage…..Rwanda.

Now the bastard that financed the carnage has been arrested in France…..

A businessman suspected of funding militias in the Rwanda genocide has been arrested by French police after decades on the run.

Félicien Kabuga was arrested in Asniéres-sur-Seine, outside Paris, where he had been living under a false identity, officials said.

The 84-year-old had been in hiding for 23 years after the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda indicted him on charges including genocide and incitement to commit genocide.

I do not know how accurate this story is….but I thought I would put it in the thoughts for the weekend…..

It’s been no secret over the last three years that Melania Trump is seemingly not too fond of her husband.

Now, it could just be that that’s just the way she is. Perhaps she’s just a cold-natured person. One who’s not fond of physical displays of affection or public, verbal affirmations of her feelings. Perhaps she’s just got one killer case of “Resting Bitch Face.”

But if you ask me and most of the rest of the world as well, Mel gives off quite the vibe of “I hate your guts, eat shit and die” pretty much every single time she’s around her dear ol’ hubby.

How true is this report?

I guess it depends on where you stand on Trump.

Me?

I would like to believe that she does still have some dignity left after her years with Donald the Orange.

It seems now that in Missouri tells me what I can do with my support…..like I boycott everything Israeli and now in Missouri I cannot do that with being a criminal…..(I know that I posted on this before but it is too damn important to be ignored.)

Missouri lawmakers on Thursday passed a bill to ban the state from doing business with companies that boycott Israel.

The Republican-led House approved the measure 95-40 on Thursday, the day before their Friday deadline to pass bills this year.

The bill is in response to the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement which aims to highlight Israel’s human rights abuses.

The movement promotes boycotts, divestment and sanctions of Israeli government-linked institutions and businesses in a non-violent campaign against the occupation of Palestinian territory and other abuses.

I use to think Google was the anti-Christ…..and at times Facebook as well….now I have a new candidate, Jeff Bezos…..

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos found himself the target of attacks from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, and a lot of social media users on Thursday as outlets highlighted an analysis suggesting he’ll become the first ever trillionaire. Business website Comparisun determined the 56-year-old—with a current net worth of about $144 billion—would nab that title in just six years. It calculated each billionaire’s average growth in net worth over the last five years and applied that rate to future years. Essentially, if Bezos’ net worth continues to grow at an average of 34%, he’ll become a trillionaire by 2026, per USA Today.

Watson Coleman accused Bezos of “atrocious greed.” Warren said it was “immoral” that Bezos was “on track to become the world’s first trillionaire in the middle of a pandemic” while “Amazon is ending overtime pay for warehouse and delivery workers.” But saying Bezos is on track to become a trillionaire “is quite a stretch,” according to Theodore Schleifer at Vox. “Past performance … isn’t indicative of future performance” and “the American economy has been on a decade-long bull run that won’t replicate easily,” he writes. Still, Bezos owns 11% of Amazon, whose stock has climbed 560% since 2015. His net worth has climbed by more than $28 billion in the last year alone, despite a $35 billion divorce settlement.

Sorry NO one person needs that much cash….

Then of course there is always a man that has to show his ignorance by opening his mouth….

A Texas mayor is facing backlash after he said women shouldn’t lead prayer in public before city council meetings because the Bible forbids it.

Wylie, Texas, Mayor Eric Hogue’s remarks were made in a email to fellow city council members, which was then shared publicly on Facebook this week, The Dallas Morning News reported.

The city’s mayor pro tem, Jeff Forrester, reached out earlier this month and asked for Hogue’s thoughts on having members of the Christian missionary group Youth With A Mission attend the city council’s next meeting.

Just a small sample to start our Sunday….

Be Well….Be Safe….

  1. The amount of personal wealth owned by such a small number of businessmen (and women) is quite disgusting. Nobody could ever live long enough to spend so much, yet they still want more and more. It just sickens me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have always favored the “Free Market” and it hasn’t done so badly for me so I guess I am among that fortunate few who had the foresight to do some investing when I was younger … sorry about that … (No, I am not sorry about that) — and as to the African genocide you mentioned, well, it did make a great movie.
