‎100 years after the Triangle Factory Fire, Republicans are trying to take away unions. Had the women of the Triangle Factory had a union, they wouldn't have died in an inferno. I urge you to read this and pass it on. This is for Wisconsin and every other state fighting for their rights in a country swiftly becoming frighteningly Rightwing and pro-corporation.

Depression

Why isn't anyone calling our situation what it really is ~ a Depression? Do the 1930s have a Monopoly on that term. Sure, it may have started out as a recession, but things just don't seem to be getting any better for anyone and they're getting worse for many. The only way to solve a problem is to correctly identify it first. That way, you know what you're up against and what needs to be done. I know that, if I had any money at all, it wouldn't go anywhere near a bank. I'd stuff it in a mattress or stuff Toby with it after I kill the little bastiche. Whatever it's called, I still have faith that Obama is the one to turn things around. Goddess forbid we had another Republican in a place of power. There'd be work camps popping up everywhere and more wars than we could count on our fingers and toes.

We can't let them get away with one of their clichéd manœvres this time. Don't let one little dinky ploy get past our necessarily constant and sharp vigil Go do this or I'll kick you in the virtual privates.

PBS is doing one of those instant online polls to ask America" if they think Sarah Palin is fit to be Vice President.

The GOP has launched a successful all out blitz to get Republicans to go on the site and click "Yes". As a result right now it looks like 62% of "America" thinks Palin is qualified. The Republicans are going to be milking this for all its worth in their press efforts.

We need to drive more Democrats and those opposed to Palin to the site to click "NO". Let's not give the GOP another easy weapon to put in their PR arsenal!

Here's the link:

http://www.pbs.org/now/polls/poll-435.html

You don't have to enter your email address or anything, just click "NO" and forward to family and friends!

NO Way, NO How, NO McCain, NO Palin!



This was forwarded to me by My Friend Todd. Please pass it on to your friends, family, and loved ones.

Is it wrong of me to wish that the Earth would open up right under the site of the Republican National Convention and swallow several hundred of the most evil fucking monsters ever to be born on this planet? 'Cos that's what I've been wishing for, for the past 48 hours actually.

I got in the mail yesterday the miniseries V and V: The Final Battle. At the beginning of each installment of the first miniseries is this dedication:

To the heroism of the
Resistance Fighters
--past, present, and future--
this work is respectfully
dedicated


These movies would never be made in today's political climate, especially carrying such a dedication. It's like sending out a salute to the Iraqi insurgents. The message of V is a bit heavy-handed at times, but I think a big slap in the face is exactly what we all need right about now.

It's like I always said, whether or not you're dubbed a terrorist depends on which side you're on. Americans who don't see this now are either blind, stupid, or have a vested interest in the current administration's totalitarian policies.

Before I journal about the activities and special moments of yesterday's trip to Asheville, I have to rant. What I have to say my offend some people, especially some women, so I'll put a cut here to spare folks who care not to go any further.

Also, to rape victims, this may be triggery, so please go no further.....unless you are a Right Wing idiot who is anti-choice.

What Really Happened.
by Cindy Sheehan
Wed Feb 01, 2006 at 01:19:44 AM PDT

Dear Friends,

As most of you have probably heard, I was arrested before the State of the Union Address tonight.
I am speechless with fury at what happened and with grief over what we have lost in our country.

CindySheehan's diary :: ::

There have been lies from the police and distortions by the press. (Shocker) So this is what really happened:

This afternoon at the People's State of the Union Address in DC where I was joined by Congresspersons Lynn Woolsey and John Conyers, Ann Wright, Malik Rahim and John Cavanagh, Lynn brought me a ticket to the State ofthe Union Address. At that time, I was wearing the shirt that said: 2245 Dead. How many more?

After the PSOTU press conference, I was having second thoughts about going to the SOTU at the Capitol. I didn't feel comfortable going. I knew George Bush would say things that would hurt me and anger me and I knew that I couldn't disrupt the address because Lynn had given me the ticket and I didn't want to be disruptive out of respect for her. I, in fact, had given the ticket to John Bruhns who is in Iraq Veterans Against the War. However, Lynn's office had already called the media and everyone knew I was going to be there so I sucked it up and went.

I got the ticket back from John, and I met one of Congresswoman Barbara Lee's staffers in the Longworth Congressional Office building and we went to the Capitol via the undergroud tunnel. I went through security once, then had to use the rest room and went through security again. My ticket was in the 5th gallery, front row, fourth seat in. The person who in a few minutes was to arrest me, helped me to my seat. I had just sat down and I was warm from climbing 3 flights of stairs back up from the bathroom so I unzipped my jacket. I turned to the right to take my left arm out, when the same officer saw my shirt and yelled; "Protester." He then ran over to me, hauled me out of my seat and roughly (with my hands behind my back) shoved me up the stairs. I said something like "I'm going, do you have to be so rough?" By the way, his name is Mike Weight.

The officer ran with me to the elevators yelling at everyone to move out of the way. When we got to the elevators, he cuffed me and took me outside to await a squad car. On the way out, someone behind me said, "That's Cindy Sheehan." At which point the officer who arrested me said: "Take these steps slowly." I said, "You didn't care about being careful when you were dragging me up the other steps." He said, "That's because you were protesting." Wow, I get hauled out of the People's House because I was, "Protesting."

I was never told that I couldn't wear that shirt into the Congress. I was never asked to take it off or zip my jacket back up. If I had been asked to do any of those things...I would have, and written about the suppression of my freedom of speech later. I was immediately, and roughly (I have the bruises and muscle spasms to prove it) hauled off and arrested for "unlawful conduct."

After I had my personal items inventoried and my fingers printed, a nice Sgt. came in and looked at my shirt and said, "2245, huh? I just got back from there."

I told him that my son died there. That's when the enormity of my loss hit me. I have lost my son. I have lost my First Amendment rights. I have lost the country that I love. Where did America go? I started crying in pain.

What did Casey die for? What did the 2244 other brave young Americans die for? What are tens of thousands of them over there in harm's way for still? For this? I can't even wear a shrit that has the number of troops on it that George Bush and his arrogant and ignorant policies are responsible for killing.

I wore the shirt to make a statement. The press knew I was going to be there and I thought every once in awhile they would show me and I would have the shirt on. I did not wear it to be disruptive, or I would have unzipped my jacket during George's speech. If I had any idea what happens to people who wear shirts that make the neocons uncomfortable that I would be arrested...maybe I would have, but I didn't.

There have already been many wild stories out there. I have some lawyers looking into filing a First Amendment lawsuit against the government for what happened tonight. I will file it. It is time to take our freedoms and our country back.

I don't want to live in a country that prohibits any person, whether he/she has paid the ulitmate price for that country, from wearing, saying, writing, or telephoning any negative statements about the government. That's why I am going to take my freedoms and liberties back. That's why I am not going to let Bushco take anything else away from me...or you.

I am so appreciative of the couple of hundred of protesters who came to the jail while I was locked up to show their support....we have so much potential for good...there is so much good in so many people.

Four hours and 2 jails after I was arrested, I was let out. Again, I am so upset and sore it is hard to think straight.

Keep up the struggle...I promise you I will too.

Love and peace soon,

Cindy

My good friend [livejournal.com profile] green_goblin70 just got told to fuck off for his liberal views by a Right Wing Nutsack who chose to remain anonymous. How funny is this, considering Bush's infringement on Americans' right to privacy? Talk about the height of hypocrisy. Go polish your jackboots, asshat, and leave the thinking to those who CAN.

Our Esteemed Fuhrer is making his speech tonight, attempting to convince those of us with brains that all is well while, at the same time, doing the Arsenio Hall "hoo hoo hoo!" to his Right Wing Dominionist cronies over the complete takeover of what was once a relatively decent nation. Sure, America has always had its problems (that's why I've identified as an expatriate since the early 80s), but what country doesn't? But now......now it's like a bad joke using all the longtime threats of Fascism known to anyone who has ever read 1984. Yeah, I'm a little disillusioned, bitter, and generally surly about the whole situation and am praying ever more fervently for the Alpaca Lips to come and reset the Order of Things.

So. The State of the Bunion that was once a Union, but is now a mere achy callous on the tender toes of Mother Earth....


  • We are continuing to assert our status of Collective Ugly American around the world by enforcing torture, illegal imprisonment, and warcraft without good reason.

  • Our Blue Hairs (Senior Citizens) are being driven slowly mad from trying to figure out their new Doublespeak Prescription Plan. Many are going without medicines that help save their lives. Now I'm all for keeping these menaces off the roads, but going about it like this is just cruel and unusual.

  • The Supreme Court has been tipped in favour of the likes of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. I've heard that Sam Alito is rereading The Handmaid's Tale to jazz up his spirit for his new position while all women of childbearing age should be practicing their new position in our happy little Right Wing Dictatorship.

  • Civil Rights takes another blow by losing Coretta Scott King as the young people of today are oblivious to the social ramifications presented by the Sixties. Young people are unaware that the Right Wing sabotaged what should have been the dawning of the Age of Aquarius by filtering addictive substances into pods of the Resistance, turning these hopeful revolutionaries into wraiths and turning the movement into a joke. Not to mention their killing Kennedy and Mrs. King's husband, Martin Luther. See where it's all gotten us?

  • Factory farming is still a fact.

  • The devastation of logging is still a fact.

  • Factories continue to belch filth into the air while individual smokers get blamed for causing cancer. Brilliant!

  • Women continue to die from ovarian cancer while scientists work tirelessly to create a new anti-impotence drug or figure out some way to stop and/or reverse male pattern baldness.

  • Our schools are being hijacked into teaching Creationism under the guise of Intelligent Design. Doesn't anyone find it funny that we were supposedly created via Intelligent Design, but we're being led by a barely evolved primate possessed by Legion? And we thought Legion only picked on swine. Silly us.

  • Reality TV is still holding the majority of the televiewing American public hostage while it perpetually sucks out our brains like the lifeforce being pulled out of Podlings by hungry Skeksis. I've come to believe that this is the main purpose of Reality TV, to do just that so we won't have the ability to fight back in any real capacity, just like the Podling zombies. Am I comparing the current administration to a pack of husk-dry Skeksis? Why, yes, I think I am.

  • Unemployment has reached ridiculous levels while we're being told on the news that the economy is going great and jobs are being created every day.

  • More people are losing health insurance every day while healthcare prices continue to rise at an exponential rate.

  • More people are dependent on drugs, particularly anti-anxiety and depression drugs, but we're being assured that life is great.

  • It's rumoured that America won't see it's Tricentennial, but would that really be a big loss now?



Okay, that's my State of the Bunion. More honest and, hopefully, more entertaining that Dubya's upcoming expulsion of vomit-inspiring lies. May he, his puppet-masters, and all of his cronies rot in the most stinking bowel of hell there is. Amen and Hallelujah.

Lessee....

Alito is now on the Supreme Court.

Coretta Scott King kicks the bucket.

One of my best friends will soon be joining the growing ranks of the unemployed.

I got my car title in the mail today. According to the envelope it was mailed on 9 January not 28 December like I was repeatedly told by the flunkies at Capital One. So I won't have to go grovel at the DMV for a title now. If I ever do business with Capital One again, please someone kick me in my unmentionables.

Saw Lisa about my knee. She took X-rays and even I could see all the arthritis in there this time. They don't do injections at Family Physicians, so I now have an appointment with a new orthopaedist next Friday and a prescription for hydrocodone to see me through until I can go see him/her/it. There are what looks like spurs coming from my femur and touching my lower leg bone (can't remember its name 'cos I'm a medical idiot). I just know my cartilage is totally knackered.

Video and adult stores are being raided as I write this, and having videos and DVDs that "cross the line" seized by law enforcement deputies. Who judges what crosses the line? There's something just wrong about this. I mean, there's some porn out there that I would prefer not to see, but shouldn't that be up to me and any other individual? Censorship pisses me right the fuck off. Especially when "authorities" talk about "crossing the line," but never explain what line it crosses. Instead, there's the implication that this is a Christian area with "Family Values." Guess that's why SC is a leader in domestic violence. All those fucking Christian family values in action... You can't watch Seymour Butts get it on with a coterie of bimbos, but you sure as hell can smack your bitch up on Friday nights after getting drunk 'cos, come SUUNDEEEE, you'll be fergivvin' and can continue your reign of values-laden terror for the week to come.

I was raised on his music because my grandmother was completely in love with the man. Needless to say, it's heartening to see that he shares my sentiments regarding our American Fuhrer.

That was the catchphrase of the main character in Mad TV's fake sitcom My White Momma. I haven't been awake for very long, and no one has pissed me off or triggered my Inner Sith, but I am still eager for a reason to say it. And then, just the literal thought behind the threat....fucking hilarious. HI-LAIR-EE-USSSS. And a tad uncomfy if you're on the receiving end. Heh.

Today we're paying bills. I'm online earlier than normal so I can take care of one of these bills via the Blessed Holy Intarwebs! Soon soon, I shall be rolling in dough (after penalties, tax, and regular whippings in the yard) and can say for the first time in almost twenty years: "Yea, I am debt free, peoples of the Earth! Debt free and, therefore, truly free! No longer am I a corporate slave! No longer must I answer to The Man! I am freeeeeeee!" And then the soldiers will come get me and transport my sorry liberal ass to Gitmo for to be poked at with hot sticks and generally abused.

Soon I shall be laptop shopping. I need something that will allow me access to the Intarwebs in a wireless capacity. I also need lots of power, space, and whatnot because this is the computer I'll be using for school. So, any suggestions would be most appreciated yo. Once I'm in possession of the new laptop, the one from which I am currently transmitting will go on to Aunt Tudi. I think I'll be setting her up a Live Journal account now so it'll be ready for her when she officially gets online. That way, she'll already have a welcoming party. ;) Yep, that's what' I'm gonna do.

Once Aunt Tudi is set up on LJ, I'll make an announcement here. Then you all must go add her. That's an order!

This is a personal message to any FASCIST SMEGMA-HEAD who may be monitoring this journal or any other journal belonging to intelligent persons who speak out against your CRUEL and DEMENTED REGIME:

I KNOW YOU'RE WATCHING BUT GUESS WHAT? WE'RE WATCHING YOU TOO. Rome fell, Hitler failed, and SO WILL YOU. The Christ you claim to be at your side said himself that the MEEK shall inherit the Earth. That leaves your stinking, oil-slicked arses out of the equation. Enjoy your reign of terror while you can, FUCKERHEADS. It will NOT be tolerated for very much longer. In the meantime, enjoy reading my journal from your office in the Pentagon or the White House or whatever underground bunker wherein you're hiding along with all the other roaches. My opinions, my journaling, and my voice will NOT be changed by the knowledge that you're present. You can all go fuck yourselves with oil pipelines for all I care.


This message inspired by the latest warning that vocal anti-war groups and individuals are being watched by the Pentagon

There's a dude who works here in The Pit who's originally from Germany. Yeah, he's got the accent and everything. And he's incredibly Aryan: extra-fair skin, blond hair, blue eyes ~ just really fucking Aryan! And he's 12 feet tall and is as big around as a pencil. Very thin and vertical. His name is Juergen and I've only spoken to him once in the 3 years he's been here managing our ODS system. It's not that I won't speak to him; rather, we work on opposite ends of a very large building, so there's never been much of an opportunity.

The one time I talked to Juergen, it was in the parking lot to tell him how much I love his bumper sticker. This was a few months ago. Today, I got the chance to take a a picture of the sticker on his car. I think it's really pretty fucking cool that someone of German descent is speaking out against the asshole pigs who are essentially repeating the mistakes Nazi Germany made in the 30s and 40s. Really, someone from Germany would have more credence in saying "Hey, you fucking, beady-eyed retard! NOT.A.GOOD.IDEA." methinks.

So, yeah, Juergen rocks.

I've transferred the last of my personal emails from my work inbox to my home address. All these comprised of my communications with Barry Andrews from 2003 and 2004. It still boggles what's left of my mind that we've been writing for five years. You'd think after that long, my phobia would be gone. Not so.

Earlier today, I got a vox mail from Gary telling me he'd beaten me to the punch on the unemployment front. That just totally sucks yak ass. Almost everyone I know is either already unemployed or will be soon. The only one who needs to be fired is that rat-bastard who's taken the White House hostage. Corporate America takes way too many liberties with the work force now and it's all Dubya's fault and the fault of his evil puppet masters. The Great Evil take them!

I have around 15 minutes left in The Pit. In commemoration, I shall post a picture of The Bald One. Oh yes.
