I do not like this Uncle Sam,

I do not like his health care scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks,

or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals,

I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker Nan ,

I do not like this 'YES, WE CAN'.

I do not like this spending spree---

I'm smart, I know that nothing's free.

I do not like your smug replies,

when I complain about your lies.

I do not like this kind of hope.

I do not like it. nope, nope, nope!

Go green - recycle Congress in 2010

If you are going to unfriend me, at least have the courtesy of PMing me and letting me know how I managed to piss you off.

I'm still getting posts from you, and when I try to respond it says "friends only", and won't let me say anything.  That's just plain rude.

If you don't like my politics, my parenting style, or what side I part my hair on, that's cool.  I'm a grownup, I can deal with it.  Just have some internet manners, OK?

Our Mission is to End Identity Politics in America forever. We desire a society based on the content of ones character and NOT race nor the color of ones skin. With our message, we are ready to combat the NAACP, the Al Sharptons, Jesse Jacksons and the Left, who profit from tearing America apart. We are Pro-America!! If you are like minded and believe in our mission then join us.

We need to maintain the Soul of America. We must be proud of our Great Country. We must defend the values that make us exceptional. Our organization is not driven by hate but by LOVE. Love of God, Love of Family and Love of Country! However we must Unite against the forces that thrive upon racial divide.

The concept of a colorblind* society is build upon the teachings of our greatest thinkers. As Thomas Jefferson once articulated, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal…” Here at NAACPC we live our lives by those words. We believe that race is an institution designed to keep like minded citizens apart and separate. The institution of race has given us racism, social and political segregation and numerous barriers both physically and psychologically. The NAACPC stands strong behind the belief that there are no differences in people relative to skin color.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*OK, I totally bristled at the use of the word "colorblind", but I agree so much with the basic ideas of this that I'm going to look past it.  I understand why I they used it, I just wish they had found a more effective and accurate term.

This is an awesome post.  http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=2122

"The practice of kafkatrapping corrupts causes in many ways, some obvious and some more subtle. The most obvious way is that abusive and manipulative ways of controlling people tend to hollow out the causes for which they are employed, smothering whatever worthy goals they may have begun with and reducing them to vehicles for the attainment of power and privilege over others."

"One very notable pathology is a form of argument that, reduced to essence, runs like this: “Your refusal to acknowledge that you are guilty of {sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…} confirms that you are guilty of {sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…}.”

Go read the whole thing, it's worth it.


ETA:  I found this link in the comments to the blog entry.  http://archive.uua.org/ga/ga99/238thandeka.html ; Very powerful ideas in there.  I'm going to have to go over it again when I'm not so sleep deprived.

The cost of war, the oppression, the blockades, the starvation and poverty and shortages and... oh, it's just too horrible to bear.  Don't take my word for it, read for yourself.

A friend of mine just posted this first hand account of the G20 riots.  It's long, but it deserves to be published far and wide.

Please cross post freely.  (Freely?  Oh, the irony.) 
rivkasmom: (Another Wankfest?)
I commented in a friend's journal last night, and this morning I woke up to an inbox full of wankery.

I just got unfriended by a bunch of people who can't tell when I'm being sarcastic, and don't have the nerve to ask me "Hey, what the heck did you mean by that?"  There was epic butthurt all around.  Of course, none of them were real life friends, because they would have been used to my sense of humor by now.  Still, a few of them were people that I kinda considered to be cool. 

Maybe it's the economy, or something in the water, but it seems to me that people are getting more and more thin skinned as time goes on.  People are taking things very literally, and then blowing them up to crazy proportions.  "If you really believe x, then you must think XXXXXX!  Nazi!!!" 

So from here on out, be warned.  I am silly, sarcastic, irreverent and occasionally not politically correct.  I own a gun, vote Libertarian, and I'm pro Israel 100%.  I think that everyone on the planet is created equal, and that nobody should get special rights, privileges, quotas, accommodations (except for disabilities). 

I judge individual people by their actions alone, not on fancy speeches, physical appearances, or group affiliations.  If you want to be my friend, show me.  I believe that there are good and bad, stupid and smart, ethical and evil people in every group.  There are always exceptions, and I am always open to finding them. 

If you think I'm out of line, say something.  If not, then you're a coward and I feel sorry for you.  Life is too short to be riding the Drama Llama all day.
