twilson117

I go by the handle twilson117. The 117 is to honor my late son who played both High School and Club Soccer a sport he loved. I'm one of the writers from Yabberz and I am happy that AdLib welcomed us here to The Planet. I'm looking forward to making a contribution here and I want to thank all who take time out of their day to read my posts.

Florida – Where Book Banning Flourishes

It’s obvious what rankles Ms. Salinis; she is an illiterate troglodyte who couldn’t handle seeing a young Black female reciting a poem of hope for this country. Nothing in Amanda’s poem remotely suggests what she claims justifies having this book banned. She is an opportunist taking advantage of the dumbass laws DeSantis pushed through his State Legislature to make Florida an autocratic state.

The Faces of The Future

As I stand here and look out upon the thousands of Negro faces, and the thousands of white faces, intermingled like the waters of a river, I see only one face, the face of the future — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Payton Gendron Deserves The Death Penalty

In the statement Payton Gendron read, he said; “That day (May 14, 2022), I made a horrible mistake. I killed individuals by shooting them because they were Black." This is an affront to the relatives of those he murdered! No, Payton Gendron, you didn’t make a mistake. You deliberately set out to kill as many Black people as you could.

The Greatest Problems Arise When Greed Is Ignored

I believe the Ferengi and their Rules of Acquisition lay bare the overall intent of Wayne LaPierre’s callous statement about a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun.

Kanye Has Lost His Touchstone, Can He Find Another?

Kanye lost his touchstone when his mother died of surgery complications, and losing her, shattered him. It appears he started slowly spiraling out of control. His wife Kim may have filled that gap and stemmed the downward spiral, but their divorce has placed him back on a path of self-destruction.

Religion, Kept Me from Voting!

I think about all the times I didn’t vote because of my religious beliefs, and I get angry. How could I allow a religious construct to keep me from doing something so many Black people gave their lives for?

Georgia’s Choice: Competence or Unmitigated Ignorance!

Georgians have a choice. They can re-elect Warnock, who, during his two years, has accomplished much for the state of Georgia. Or replace him with Walker. Who, up to this point, has demonstrated he is a complete buffoon without knowledge or understanding of what it takes to be a US Senator and will take his marching orders from Trump.

Herschel, You Need To Stop Embarrassing Yourself

Republicans are putting forth a flawed candidate in Herschel Walker. He is not someone who will “operate on the right side of the question.” But someone who will be manipulated into supporting Republicans’ push toward authoritarianism and destroying our democratic form of governance.

Don’t Be Fooled, Alex Jones Doesn’t Give a Damn About the Families of Sandy Hook!

Unfortunately for reprobates like Alex Jones, compensatory and punitive damages of any amount will not stop a congenital liar like Jones. He and others like him are amping up their game, and frankly, they don’t give a damn who gets hurt in the process.

We’re Not Here To Replace You, We’re Here To Outperform You!

Why do white people fear and hate us? Are they so afraid through reading and acquiring knowledge that, as a collective group, we would seek their ultimate destruction? Is this why the country’s history is replete with white violence delivered upon Black people?
