Donald Trump’s newest budget just DECIMATED federal funding for public libraries!

Is this real ? Just arrived in my mailbox.
Has anyone else seen this ?
Hopefully someone more reasonable will replace him in 2020.

The Robin Hoods (People voted in to look after the peoples )are just turning into Hoods to feather their own nests now, so much self greed, while people are starving, losing homes, living with no hope for the future. The fairy tales of looking after the people are turning into Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the richest of them all? Me! Me! Me!

I here most decent Americans are trying to move to Canada. All he will be left with is immigrants, and Mexican's, the two most hated species (according to him.) The man cheated to get into office, so, what did anyone think he would do? Be a good leader? I don't know why congress didn't kick him out as soon as they found out he paid voters to vote.

-------------World Open Voices Festival, May 6-12 in NYCity------

I Wonder How Many of Us Remember British Indian Novelist, Salman Rushdie ?

This morning, the Washington Post announced this week marks the 30th Anniversary of the Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa against Salman Rushdie. The late Iranian leader, offended by Rushdie’s portrayal of Muhammad in “The Satanic Verses” (1988), called for Muslims anywhere in the world to kill the novelist. The result was one of the most terrifying threats to freedom of expression in the modern era.

“The Satanic Verses” was banned in about a dozen countries, bookstores around the world were bombed, and the novel's Japanese translator was stabbed to death. With a bounty on his head, Rushdie went into hiding under the protection of the British government.

Fortunately, the novelist’s life has since returned to normal. In May, the America World Voices Festival will celebrate its 15th anniversary in New York. The festival was "founded by Salman Rushdie in the years after 9/11 out of a fear that the channels of contact between the U.S. and the rest of the world were being choked off by neo-isolationism."

"Rushdie's legacy is this unique annual gathering of hundreds of writers from around the world to try to make sense of the trends that divide people and impair open exchange."
Wow, harsh story! I shall research further!
Happy WDC Anniversary! You're a teenager! *GiftB* *PartyHatB*
