US taxes go to anti-women Israel (tags)

After hearing Democracy Now's expose of an Israeli woman who was attacked for refusing to give up her seat to a man, I had to research this. I found not only this vicious anti-women story, but also one of Zionist men spitting on an 8 year old girl for being "indecent" in dress. This is the stench of religion for which we American taxpayers pay as Israel does not exist for one second without US tax dollars to the tune of $6 billion a year to protect US oil profits. Here are the stories.

SAME Meeting Challenges Queer Establishment, Democratic Party (tags)

The San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (SAME) hosted a meeting at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center June 23 that was billed as a response to Proposition 8 and a discussion of the future of marriage equality in California — but it also turned into a radical response to the Queer establishment in general and the Courage Campaign in particular. Lesbian activist Robin Tyler, who was one of the lead plaintiffs in the suit that briefly won marriage rights for same-sex couples in California, criticized the strategies and tactics of the Courage Campaign and denounced the Democratic party as having screwed over Queer people for 35 to 40 years, She called for the Queer community to cut ties with the Democrats once and for all.

From The Back Of The Bus To Prison (tags)

When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus 51 years ago it was the spark that brought about the American Civil Rights Movement; changing the lives for millions of Blacks. For a short while in the mid 60’s and 70’s Blacks made some social and racial gains, however today many Blacks are wasting away their lives in American prisons due to the unjust practice of the Three Strikes Laws.

Mythic Figures Spooking Dubya (tags)

President George W. Bush, the quintessential warmonger, is on the defensive! If you look close enough, you can see the fear in his eyes. Since 2005, Cindy Sheehan, an “Earth Mother,” has been challenging him to a face-to-face meeting. The cowardly Bush has declined. Meanwhile, other splendid activists, like the “Hero/Patriot” from the mythic past, are demanding the impeachment by the U.S. Congress of both Bush and V. P. Dick Cheney.

Racism, bad weather and the "meltdown.." (tags)

"All told, this adversity may actually result in a "blessing in disguise." The totality of these events of the ending summer may disrupt the economy, and Shrub's agenda sufficiently that they may reconsider the almost foregone conclusion to attack Iran, and the possible world war which almost certainly would ensue."

Whoever Doesn't Really Try, Consents. (tags)

Mass symbolic, sanctioned marches that do nothing to actually change the status quo serve as painless absolution rituals, that allow the participants to “bear witness”, to “speak truth to power” and to “wash their hands of the blood of empire.” Marches, with their biting satire and snazzy costumes, do not provide a real means for stopping the carnage they deplore. A “functioning” democracy needs some form of sanctioned, orderly protest to stimulate discussion, and if the current regime were really “that bad” they wouldn’t allow big demonstrations, right? Ineffective activism, like regulated marches, actually provides a façade of healthy interchange and is welcomed by the status quo. The majority of demonstrators are aware well in advance that their actions will likely have no tangible effect on the negative of the empire, but they go to a huge rally and can sleep better at night having chanted out their guilt. Just as it can be said qui tacet consentive videtu (whoever is silent consents) it can also be said “whoever doesn’t really try, consents.”

I Was Arrested but the Real Crime is the Corporate Hijacking of Our Democracy (tags)

Every time I engage in non-violent civil disobedience against an oppressive government, I revel in the power that we the people actually have. If more people engaged in civil disobedience more often, we would change the oppressive power structure much more quickly. I have been charged with trespassing on private property and the failure to obey a reasonable order by the police. But you and I know that the real crime is the corporate hijacking of our democracy.
