The New War Criminal is the Same as the Old War Criminal, and the other one and Ad Nauseum (Cindy Sheehan)

   February 26, 2021            Dear Soapbox Friend/Supporter/Comrade,   This will probably come as a surprise to no one reading this that we here at the Soapbox condemn in the strongest possible way the bombing of Syria by the Biden regime.   Even though we are not surprised at the bombing, and even though we warned that it would happen under the War Criminal Biden, we can (for whatever it's worth) oppose it.   Yesterday I sent out this newsletter: #46, First Month-(Ish)  before the announcement of the escalation of the bestial U.S. conflict in Syria.   As I wrote last September in The Ineffectual and Dangerous Concept of Lesser-Evilism:   "Didn't the Obama regime prove that no matter who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, the bloody U.S. empire continues, because the problem is systemic, not cosmetic? Voting for Joe Biden will be just like slapping a fresh coat of white paint on a dilapidated buildin

#46 So Far (Biden's First Month-ish)

  Biden's first month as POTUS has been characterized by more censorship, increasing police state, and of course, wars. Some of his voters in the "peace" movement were really hoping (against Biden's belligerent history) that he'd end the US's meddling in the Middle East and free Julian Assange, but of course, the opposite of those things have happened because all hopes are based on some kind of magical or mythical thinking. As horrible as was Trump, he would have to be in the U.S. government for another four decades before he could descend to the level of corruption and service to the Military Industrial Complex and Wall Street that Biden has "achieved." Is the answer to keep on voting in more Democrats? To keep placing all the blame on Republicans? Or working together in solidarity with each other and the rest of the people in the world?  Malcolm X May 19, 1925 to February 21, 1965 *********************** US Changes Its Role in the Yemen War as It S

CORONA DIGEST: FEBRUARY 8, 2021 (COVID-CHECK IN)

  EAT THE RAINBOW! DEAR SOAP-BOXER,   Who would have thought that one-year after there were about five Covid cases outside of China, that the world, especially the U.S., and specifically, my state: California would still be in the midst of such turmoil.   This is a post to check in with how YOU are specifically doing? Honestly, I have been better.   Even though I am at peak health (I walk and ride my bike on a daily basis, and I would swim if my gym were allowed to be open by Gov Newsolini) and for the past 12-months have only had a mild rhinovirus in November, I have been feeling very stressed and apprehensive about the future.   This blog is one way for me to be proactive in dealing with this, as it has been since 2009 (2020-21 are just a culmination of decades of corruption in the U.S., not a surprise aberration).   You can reply to this post on the blog, or please email me at: CindySheehansSoapbox@gmail.com   We are in this together, but not with the profiteers and nonsciency polit
