. . . So, if you've got me on your Friend's List and you also have my communities on your list, or maybe your kiss (your kiss) is on my list, then you're probably seeing this multiple times. After you've seen it once, just skip it. It all says the same thing, but I'm putting it in all three journals because LiveJournal is SRS BZNSCollapse )

A woman's body and what she does with it is her own business. As long as she's an adult and as long as she's not doing anything illegal, then what does it matter if she gets a breast enlargement? Or botox injections? Or even, should they decide to get one, an abortion? That's not illegal... is it?
Well, Dr. Robert Bentley, member of the Alabama House of Representatives thinks it should be. He's submitted what everyone is calling "THE MOST AGGRESSIVE PRO-LIFE LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE IN ALABAMA HISTORY." And, to be honest, it actually is.
This idiot came on the news the other night, spouting about his Pro Life Registration Act, a collection of bills and propositions that will make abortion illegal in the United States of America. The four pieces of the act include:
1. The Human Life Recognition Act
2. The Health Care Rights of Conscience Act
3. Proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit abortion (overturning Roe v. Wade)
4. House Joint Resolution opposing the Federal Freedom of Choice Act

Now, in the interview I saw, Dr. Bentley talked about his reasons for making this act. He specifically cited the Hippocratic Oath, saying that when he took it, part of it was to protect life from inception to death. That's not exactly what the Oath says, but, let's be honest, people, the Hippocratic Oath is full of holes considering the times we live in. It really doesn't have a lot of modern relevance anymore. For instance, it says a doctor will not give a lethal drug to anyone, nor will he advise such a plan, meaning, specifically that a doctor won't purposefully commit euthanasia. But let's get serious, here. Most doctors today are just pill farms and a lot of what you can get can kill you easily, if you take them the right (wrong) way.
It says to avoid violating the morals of the community, presumably the community of doctors. But not all doctors have the same morals, so that's out the window.
And of course, it says a doctor will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion. The fact that abortions have been legalized, makes this completely useless. It also says that a doctor should keep the good of the patient in the highest priority, and sometimes, death, abortion, and all kinds of thing that don't sound like nice things are actually good things that work for the good of the patient.
Now, I checked out Dr. Bentley's credentials, and.. he is a smart dude, but what the hell does he know about gynecology? He's a dermatologist for Christ's sake.

I'm a pro choice kind of guy, but that doesn't mean that since the time I started having sex until I got married, I had an extra $300 dollars kept in a private stash for "you-know-what," just in case. Can you imagine the amount of EXTRA teen mothers in the country if this bill eventually passes in 2010?
21st-Jul-2009 06:31 pm - Passing of Titans
In recent memory, several people have passed away who have had, to say the least, less than reputable reputations in the public eye. To be honest, things like that happen every day. Someone dies and it's almost guaranteed that they've done something in their life that made somebody, possibly a bunch of somebodies, think that they were a real asshole. Sometimes it's one of those circumstances where you might say, "Well... I feel bad for his family but I'm not gonna miss him." But to be one of those types of people like I said, in the public eye, you have to be either
A: Famous
B: Infamous
or
C: Die in an extravagant way
This brings to mind three people right away: The King of Pop Michael Jackson, former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, and professional wrestler Chris Benoit. Go Into the LightCollapse )I've heard that a man is judged by his deeds. I've also heard that you're judged by a jury of your peers. I've also heard judge not least ye be judged. All three of these men had some pretty bad deeds attributed to them. Some people have forgiven some of those deeds and others... not. They have very few peers; I seriously doubt that any of us could or should judge them because we couldn't possibly conceive the types of lives they led. Perhaps, sometime in the future, all the bad things will somehow be erased and forgotten.
I was very scared of getting pummeled
And sure enough I did at first recess
I got pegged in the head by a big red ball
It stung and my head hung
Back to class with a bloody nose
And soon it was lunchtime

Mom said I should ask about how poor kids can get fed
So I got a book of tickets and a schedule and it read:
Monday - Hot Dog, Tuesday - Taco
Wednesday - Hamburgers and Chocolate Milk
Thursday - Sloppy Joe's and burritos in a bag
Friday was Pizza Day, the best day of the week
All the kids would line up super early just to eat

Monday - Hot Dog, Tuesday - Taco
Wednesday - Hamburgers and Chocolate Milk
Thursday - Sloppy Joe's and burritos in a bag
Friday was Pizza Day, the best day of the week
It always came with salad and a side of cold green beans

Hooray for Pizza Day
Hooray for Pizza Day
I miss Pizza Day
The best day of the week


If you have kids, or have friends who have kids or maybe you plan on having kids one day, I hope you stick around and read all of this.

I've seen a lot about it over the past couple of days, so maybe you have too. Apparently, the Albuquerque, New Mexico school district is having some problems with their lunch program. And here I thought things were GREAT in Albuquerque... I thought you could drink your soup right outta the ash trays if you want to (it's okay, they're clean), even if they're out of bear claws.
But I'm getting off topic.
According to a couple of articles, in Albuquerque specifically, there are a lot of parents who just aren't giving their kids any money for lunch and having the kids charge it to an account. Ya know, I did that a bunch in Jr High. Ya know why? `Cause I spent my lunch money before lunch, either dropping dollars and losing or buying comic books before class. In High School, I just kept the money and that way I wouldn't have to ask Dad for cash Friday night, OR he would offer it anyways and I'd have extra. And I'd eat off of someone else's plate anyways. But you could only ever charge so much before the lunch room wouldn't let you charge anymore. They kept electronic tabs on every student (not bad for the 45th state in education, eh? More on that later).

Well, I remember my first day in Jr. High
I had hairspray in my hair
And my pants were way too tight
And all the breakers and new wavers
And the rockers and the preps
Would all be in their places
On the front lawn or the steps
I hung out with some punker kids
Who used to make me laugh
I got thrown in the dumpster
By some rich kids near the caf

As time went on we figured out
It was totally uncool
To eat the welfare lunch
Provided by the school
So in poser-punker fashion
We just mooched off all the kids
And lived off eating candy bars
And bags of nacho chips

Monday - Hot Dog, Tuesday - Taco
Wednesday - Hamburgers and Chocolate Milk
Thursday - Sloppy Joe's and burritos in a bag

So, if that's the things they were doing in the 90's, then I'm sure they're keeping up with students just as well or better now. Those articles say that Elementary School students could charge up to ten lunches.
Why?
Don't you believe that after a week, parents could find some money for at least ONE lunch, and then start giving the child some lunch to TAKE to school with them, as well as fifty cents to buy a chocolate milk.
Now, I know, I've had to take my lunch to school before, too. It gets a little grody waiting for lunch time, whether in a lunchbox (metal or plastic, yes, I'm just old enough to have had my own metal lunch boxes, Star Wars, of course) or whether it's in a paper bag. But say, these poor parents are in the process of getting their child on either the reduced or free lunch program. It takes a little while. Believe me, I know. My brother and I were on the free lunch program while our Dad was out of work and then on the reduced program while mom was out of work. And while my Bambi and Pa-Paw could have, and by God WOULD have paid for our lunches every day, they just made our breakfast, took us to school and waited for mom and Dad to take care of business the way it should be taken care of. We took our own lunches and waited for mom and Dad to be cleared for the Free Lunch Program.
The parents in these articles are bitching and complaining because their children (2nd graders in this instance) are apparently getting substandard food for their lunches. If these parents don't fucking like it, then they should MAKE THEIR CHILDREN THEIR OWN LUNCHES TO TAKE TO SCHOOL WITH THEM. Believe me, I empathize with people who are poor, or who are out of a job, people who are currently struggling. My wife and I don't like selling our possessions to buy groceries. But if these meals are so damned substandard, take the food you have at home, the food you buy with ALL THE MONEY YOU HAVE, and use it to make your child's lunch for the day.

Well now I'm out of school
And I don't have a job
(You're a slob!)
I just sit around all sweaty and lethargic
And I'm just thinking 'bout where it all went wrong
Why I can't concentrate
On anything but reruns
I wish I had some more stability
I wish I had somebody making lunch for me
I guess I miss the simple things in life
The thought of Pizza Day
I thought it was stupid then
But I wish I had it now
I miss my

Another one of the problems is that the children in question say they are being literally pulled from the lunch lines, singled out amongst their peers, and then given this "courtesy meal;" a cheese sandwich, fruit and a carton of milk. Are the kids feelin' bad because they have a shitty meal? No, they feel bad because they're embarrassed, embarrassed that all the other kids see them being singled out and now everyone knows that their parents are poor.
Seriously, kids, listen up: I know you're only seven, but pay attention, because this is a lesson you need to learn early... if THIS is the biggest embarrassment you ever suffer throughout all of school? Then you'll at least be mentally stable. Don't worry about a cheese sandwich incident, because in probably less than five years, something much worse will have happened and you will be much more embarrassed and the pattern will keep repeating itself over and over until you die. This is nothing.

So is the school board to blame for embarrassing these kids or for giving them shitty lunches? Not for the lunches... maybe for yanking them out of line. The kids should have known previously what to do... should have known they were going to be given a "courtesy lunch," should have been told discretely by their teacher or fuckin' anyone, OR, their parents should have been giving their kids sack lunches while they wait to get on the free lunch program.
Now, my friend 5251962Tori showed me a blog that talked about this whole debacle, in which he says: "I’m of two minds about this. On one hand, yes, it’s true that schools are under no legal obligation to provide students with hot, healthy food. Also true, you could do worse nutritionally than a cheese sandwich and fruit; in fact, going by this picture it would appear that the standard lunches offered by most public schools haven’t improved much in quality since I was a Deadly Stealth Tadpole back in the late 70s and 80s."
I have to correct him right there. Yes, schools ARE under legal obligation to serve a hot healthy meal to students, and have been since before World War II. The Great Depression brought it on. And then after WWII, because of people suffering post-war financial depression, President Truman created the reduced and free lunch programs, and then in the 60's, President Johnson gave us the Child Nutrition Act and with it, breakfast at schools and healthier school lunches overall. Every kid makes fun of the school lunch, because we got nothing better to do, but it's the best shit going. It was sometimes better than food at home. And what wouldn't we give for a school pizza right now?

Now... why do these schools have to serve cold cheese sandwiches? Not even grilled cheese sandwiches? Can't you even give these kids a Hot Pocket? They say they don't have the funding and serving these cheap meals is "keeping them in the black." Oh, well fuckin' good for you, yeah? Let's take a look at the states listed in the articles: New Mexico, California, Florida, and Washington. I'll do my home state of Alabama just for kicks.
There's many factors to what makes a state a leader in education, and according to this site, as of 2003, Elementary schools in New Mexico weren't doing so well. Alabama and California weren't doing much better. Florida and Washington were faring the best. I couldn't find stats for state educational funding, but I came close.

New Mexico - 328,220 students in 839 schools
Percent eligible for free/reduced lunch: 60.7%
Per Pupil Expenditures - $8370 = $2,747,201,400

Alabama - 743,632 students in 1587 schools
Percent eligible for free/reduced lunch: 51.0%
Per Pupil Expenditures - $7805 = $583,751,120

California - 6,406,821 students in 10,063 schools
Percent eligible for free/reduced lunch: 49.7%
Per Pupil Expenditures - $8295 = $53,144,580,195

Florida - 2,671,513 students in 4009 schools
Percent eligible for free/reduced lunch: 45.2%
Per Pupil Expenditures - $7917 = $10,710,095,617

Washington - 1,026,774 students in 2326 schools
Percent eligible for free/reduced lunch: 36.5%
Per Pupil Expenditures - $8078 = $2,388,276,324

As you can plainly see, these are some of the middle to the absolute lowest states in education, and it's not like they're not adequately funded, some, obviously more than others, and they have to be because they have more students per area than others. And, what's more ironic to me, Alabama, as you can see, poorer than these other states, has no problem with feeding it's kids. AND!!! Washington, Florida and California, less than fifty percent of those people are eligible for free or reduced lunches! That means that the parents in those states aren't fucking POOR!!! They're just not paying, probably because, yeah, they most likely took a pay cut, but they can still afford lunch for their kids.
THESE ARE YOUR FUCKING CHILDREN!!! You created them from your body! They deserve better.
What's worse, is that the fucking pompous California, Florida and Washington school systems are giving shitty cheese sandwich courtesy meals to kids to "teach a lesson" to the parents and try and get them to pay up on the late fees for the charged lunches. Meanwhile, New Mexico is getting shit on in the media because they're pulling the cheese sandwich courtesy meal bit, possibly because it's a lower ranking state in education.
Now... should they be shit on a little bit? Sure. They should give the kids a real meal, not yank them out of line and embarrass them, and the effing parents should have their own business with their kids taken care of well ahead of time before a frigging news crew has to get involved.

The point is, that the blame doesn't just fall on the school or just on the parents. Someone should have taken initiative long before now to fix this problem, but these states obviously have shitty PTAs.

17th-Feb-2009 06:16 pm - Stem Cell Research
The majority of every multicellular organism is made up of trillions of cells. These cells all start out as stem cells that don't exactly know what the fuck they're gonna be yet. But, they all work towards a common goal eventually and become a whole organism like a frog or a human or a Shakey's Pizza. Even then, there are still adult stem cells that can be used to self regenerate the tissue they came from.
Now, these stem cells were first identified in embryos and and now they're found everywhere. Once it was discovered they could be used to help people, that's when the government decided to cut all funding for any labs or corporations doing stem cell research. Well, that's not entirely true. In 1993, the National Institute of Health had a Revitalization Act and President Clinton gave the NIH authority to fund embryonic stem cell research for the first time ever. However, this was eventually amended with the advent of feasible human cloning. The Dickey Amendment in 1995 prohibited the Department of Health and Human Services from using research that would create or destroy human embryos. The original NIH funding was a part of the Department of Health and Human Services funding, so... der, their shit got cut.
In 1999, it was legally deduced that human embryonic stem cells are not a human embryo within the statutory definition, and there fore the Dickey Amendment didn't apply to the research at the NIH and they could get their government funding back. President Clinton strongly endorsed those new guidelines, saying stem cell research promised "potentially staggering benefits." For someone from Arkansas, he was one helluva President.
Between 2001 and 2008, there were dozens of stem cell research laws passed and amended both federally and amongst the individual states. For instance, President Bush completely restricted all federally funded stem cell research on embryonic stem cells to already derived cell lines... which, I really don't know what that means... but he supported federally funded stem cell research on animals, putting forth $250 million per year. In 2004, California voters approved Proposition 71, which gave $3 billion over ten years to state funded stem cell research. Amazing to me that they approved this but won't allow faggots to get married (see previous SECS and PEACE entry for that rant). November 2006, Missouri passed Amendment 2 (The Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative) which allowed any stem cell research in the state of Missouri under federal law with the exception of cloning. Not until January `09 did President Obama lift all bans on federal funding for stem cell research, including cloning bans as far as I can find (which sucks because most of the articles I Googled were from like, fuckin' November).
So why did I tell you all that?Collapse )
12th-Nov-2008 02:16 am - Prop 8
Taken directly from Wikipedia:
Proposition 8 is a California State ballot proposition that would amend the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman. It would overturn a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. The official ballot title language for Proposition 8 is "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." The entirety of the text to be added to the constitution is: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
The campaigns for and against Proposition 8 raised $35.8 million and $37.6 million, respectively, becoming the highest-funded campaign on any state ballot that day and surpassing every campaign in the country in spending except the presidential contest. The proponents argued for exclusively heterosexual marriage while claiming that failure to change the constitution would require changes to school curriculum and threaten church tax benefits. The opponents argued that eliminating the rights of any Californian and mandating that one group of people be treated differently from everyone else was unfair and wrong.


I found out from my good LJ friend tempest_omouthyStormy about how people nation wide are already rallying to protest Prop 8. I'd like to, because despite the fact that I'm no longer friends or family with any homosexuals (that I know of), I think the ballot itself is bullshit, and not just in California but all over the country. But for the moment, let's just look at that definition from the Wiki.
It would overturn a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. A "fundamental right" that was just given to them this year, and now... taken away. Overturned. It's like offering a starving dog a slab of bacon and then right before he's gonna eat it, you kick him in the nuts. It's the epitome of bullshit.

Now... I'm sure you know that this so-called amendment to the California constitution is, for all intents and purposes, unconstitutional. It infringes on our basic religious freedoms. Governor Schwarzenegger expressed hope that the California Supreme Court would overturn Prop 8, urging the backers of gay marriage to follow the lesson he learned as a bodybuilder trying to lift weights that were too heavy for him at first, "I learned that you should never ever give up... They should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done." He also predicted that the 18,000 gay and lesbian couples who have already wed would not see their marriages nullified by the initiative. Many proponents of the Proposition say that regardless of what any politicians or protesters have to say, the amendment won't be overturned and all previous same-sex marriages will be nullified.
It's just more bullshit. But mostly because The State of California can't decide if the Proposition is a constitutional amendment or a constitutional revision.

As I've previously said, we're one of the most backwards assed nations in the world considering how fucking advanced we're supposed to be. I was looking over the states and countries that allow same-sex marriages and civil unions... I mean, my God. The United States is like inbred cousin at the family reunion no one wants to talk about... you know, the one that hits on your sister and your mom and his mom in line for the roast beef. Just listen to these statistics:
Marriage, as defined by the civil law, is currently available to same-sex couples in six countries. The Netherlands were the first country to allow same-sex marriage in 2001. Same-sex marriages have since been legalized in Belgium, Norway, South Africa, Spain, and Canada. Canada fer Christ's sake! When we call ourselves the Freest Country in the World and call Canada our retarded little brother, they have more fucking freedoms than we do, including same-sex marriages and free health care EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FUCKING DIME!!! Meanwhile, the only two states in the US that allow same-sex marriage are Massachusetts and Connecticut.So if you wanna move to New England and live in shitty weather for the rest of your life just so you can be with the person you love? Well then, so be it.
On the other hand, same-sex Civil Unions are allowed in Vermont, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Oregon, Maine, Maryland, Hawaii, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington, and Washington, D.C. So what's so different between a marriage and a civil union? Not much except God. You get all the same rights, responsibilities and benefits as a regular marriage. Hell, all of us normal married people will tell ya, even after your marriage under God you gotta go and get it made official by the court system of your state and all that is? Is a civil union.
But here's where it get's tricky. A lot of states don't recognize civil unions. Why? Because they're assholes. Don't believe me? Look it up; No they don't recognize the union and yes they are assholes. So it would stand to reason that if you and your same-sex partner went to Massachusetts to get married and then come back Cunt-Fuck-A-Fornia where the liberals are supposed to be, then they're not going to recognize your marriage, and perhaps they won't recognize their own civil unions for very much longer.

California isn't the only state that had a "Prop 8" - like revision this election year. Florida had Amendment 2. Arizona had Proposition 102.
Florida. Governor Jeb Bush.
Arizona. Senator John McCain.
But you didn't hear much of shit about either one of those as compared to California's Prop 8? Why? I dunno. Maybe because of the backing from ProtectMarriage dot com or the generous donations from the Church of Latter Day Saints. Or maybe because all the famous people live in California.
One of the problems in America is that we're complacent. We get everything the fuck we want and then... when what is considered a minority comes along and they say they are repressed, we laugh. How the fuck can you be repressed in this bountiful land of opportunity, enjoyment and excitement?!? Are we so stupid? Apparently. We're lucky that we have such freedoms to marry who we want and don't have to have arranged marriages like in the Middle East and some countries in South Asia. We're lucky we get to vote on such issues, we're lucky that women and blacks and Asians and Latinos get to vote and not only that, they can live here and have homes and jobs and children and interracial marriages and they can fucking DIVERSIFY, and maybe one day homosexuals will do that as well and we WILL have the ultimate melting pot of the world and God will forgive us for wiping out the Native Americans so many years ago because even if He believes that homosexuality is a sin... I doubt He'll think that all the harmony He'll see on His Earth will be wrong.

Prop 8... or any of the revisions for that matter, will most likely not be overturned. At least not until a new poll or vote or something is done in say, 20 to 30 years. Someone mentioned it was a "generational" thing... kind of like how blacks and other minorities are a part of our lives now. They didn't even have ANY rights until the early 1900's. Think that's unfair? Black males were treated better than white women because they were allowed to vote first.

[EDIT - The Next Day] -- I can't believe I forgot, veazey21 Veazey just reminded me, and I did bring it up a little bit... but a major factor in the whole anti-gay marriage vote is religion, religion that these people who voted for things like Prop 8 really don't even practice.

Now am I saying they're Christian or not? Of course not! Certainly not the Mormons, WHOA. They're crazy, they might come after me. But the fact is that gay marriage isn't impeding on your faith or the so-called "sanctity" of marriage! That's ridiculous. That's like saying because two men LOVE each other, then LOVE is fuckin' ruined forever. No fuckin' fat house politician would say that if he saw two women LOVE each other, now would he?

I have faith in God and I'm a Christian, albeit not a very good one. The people on Earth aren't running around Sodom and Gomorrah-like, fucking each other in the street willy-nilly. Everyone's trying to do this legally, the right way, the proper way, a way to be happy, to have a family, to raise children even in some cases. If He thinks it's wrong for people to be happy? Well then maybe we've been praying to the wrong fuckin' deity for a long time.

I leave you tonight with a clip that Brian posted from Keith Olbermann talking about Prop 8. There's nothing he says that I haven't already,but he has a special way of verbalizing everything, I'm sure it makes all those voters feel like special kinds of assholes.
22nd-Oct-2008 09:17 pm - They finally pissed me off too much
I'm talking about MoveOn.org.
I joined a couple of years ago (along with Save the Internet dot com and The American Civil Liberties Union), around the same time I formed this community, because I wanted to sign some petitions, further the education of our species, and make sure that things like Freedom of Speech, Press, and Religion in every aspect of life all over the nation.
And I did sign some petitions, a lot of them. Ones about gay marriage and abortion and net neutrality and copyright infringement and getting troops home from Afghanistan. Important shit. MoveOn was liberal, it focused on civic action, and for the most part it was unbiased.

But then everything changed. They wanted complete Democrat control in the House of Representatives. They got it, but what the fuck is that gonna change? All politicians have their own agenda at some point, so who gives a shit? And now, they're completely behind Barack Obama.

. . . ?

What does it matter if you're supposed to be an unbiased organization? So all those extra pro Obama e-mails eventually started to piss me off especially since they were leaving all their original ideals behind. Present the case for both opponents; let the voter decide... even if you want one guy to win more and you have to show him in a little better light, just at the very least give us an idea of what few things he might do good for the country before he has a stroke.

Then I got this shit in my e-mail about an hour ago:


Move on created a personalized video to send to their subscribers telling them "You're not gonna vote for Obama... and then he's going to lose... and the world is going to burn in hell... and it's all YOUR fault."
Fuck you, MoveOn dot org. Fuck you. That was the final straw. So I un-subscribed, told them why in a snide letter, and gave them the proverbial bird.

I'm not telling you who to vote for or even that you have to vote. However, I am saying that if anyone goes out of their way this much to try and sway your mind like you're a drone? Then they probably never had much confidence in you to begin with.
30th-Sep-2008 12:15 pm - Have you felt it yet?
Economic downfall. Tori already said that despite the fact she gets paid in pounds, the currency exchange rate has already dropped. Chris mentioned how his mortgage is WAY ahead of schedule, but a couple of other bills are kinda, y'know, fuckin' off in the background.
I look across the street and amazingly, gas has gone down another ten cents, maybe because there isn't enough of it to go around. Well... isn't that what we spent billions of dollars of money we didn't already have to go to war in Iraq for? Oh, sure, we said that it was because of the possible threat of maybe (not actual) weapons of mass destruction (that didn't really exist) and of course to bring democracy to the Iraqi people (by shooting them, ergo, last one standing is voted the winner. YAY FOR DEMOCRACY).

SO WHERE'S THE FUCKIN' OIL?!? WHERE'S THE FUCKIN' MONEY?!? WHERE'S THE FUCKIN' DEMOCRACY?!? FUCK!!!!!!!!!!

It's all misused, just like your husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons, anyone who had to go and fight for it.

Now, especially the money. Why the fuck does the government need to give MONEY to insurance companies and banks for anyways? What happened to equal work for equal pay? Nono, those cocksuckers work hand in hand they work with each other and one hand washes the other and then they scratch each other's backs.

*sigh*
I really wouldn't mind seeing a Communist or Socialist uprising right about now. Of course, if history teaches us anything, it's that those only work for so long. And that I would be shot.
So! Someone tell me why the fuck he's not one of our candidates?

That's the smartest thing I've ever seen on FAUX News.

And so, in a single day, she will suffer the pain of sorrow, hunger, and death.
Fire will destroy her body, because her judge is the Almighty God.
Every king on Earth who slept with her and shared in her luxury will mourn. They will weep when they see smoke from that fire.
Her sufferings will frighten them, and they will stand at a distance and say, "Pity that great and powerful city! Pity Babylon! In a single hour, her judgment has come."
And every merchant on Earth will mourn, because there will be no one left to buy their goods.

7th-Jul-2008 04:55 pm - Lemme ask something
Radiohead, Trent Reznor, and I believe now, uhm... WeezeR, maybe? They're doing the whole "Go to my website, download my album, and pay me what you feel I deserve, even if it's nothing at all."

And that pisses off, well... the entire fuckin' rest of the music industry.

But seriously, if you've not been getting all their songs for free, you're able to get'em off Amazon or iTunes for three to ten dollars for the whole album. I do it all the time, you get MP3 downloads of shit you want, you don't have to rip any CDs, you never have to go anywhere, it's the best part of the digital age.

So why aren't more artists embracing it and trying to earn their money in different ways?
