I turned on the radio to her voice. It was a good speech, all things considered. I’m totally in love with that girl. The down-to-earthness of this rally is beautiful.
The faculty are voting to unionize?
I’m looking for human business partners.
These chants sound awkward on the radio, but the ones who saw the big scale know how much fun it is to shout together as a crowd.
Julie Lassa sound like a fucking retard after the last five speakers. She’s the highest ranking elected official at this rally, I think. How can you put any support into this system? We can make a better one without them, and still figure out ways to use public money for common land.
There’s been a phone tone which beeped out a half-second on three occasions. It’s funny, ‘cuz it sounds like she’s swearing.
“you better be mad” what a shitty speech. Getting mad is counter-productive.
You aren’t given any realistic choice to vote for. You have to write in if you want even a chance of a capable person. We’re still at war, nobody’s talking about the causes of any of this crap, and the only solutions that this system offers are recalls and voting. Use your property to grow nutritious food.
I have stuff to say, I’m sorry this speech is distracting me.
On behalf of Reverend Jackson. And, in the style of… “Make some noise! God bless you.” Well put. Back to music. “qotsa”
Do you want to go into business together? That’s what this whole thing is. If there are 6 of us and we have one building, we’ll be living together, too. But, if there are 5 million of us in a million buildings, we live with who we want to live with.
I think WebMD is a lot of medical industry propaganda. I had to close that tab. It was making me feel sick and sad. Not like google news is much better. Don’t ask me why I tweet.
Middle and upper management has subbed out all the important stuff and can’t cut anything any more, so they’re just suing anybody making money. It’s the American way.
“The city is extremely tense and ‘people are sitting at home scared watching the updates on TV.’” Well, yeah. That’s what TV does to you. Go plant a garden. Oh, right. It’s from CNN. Which corporate entity are you again?
I work with people. These people share. We pool scraps and cooperate/work with organic farmers so we feed ourselves healthy food. If you want to work with me, I’d like to meet you, and whether we can work closely, regularly, will require a face-to-face. Which is not to say resource sharing isn’t entirely possible. I don’t take up much space. My operations are collapsible and portable.
Well, at this point, any step that brings us closer is fine by me. I can’t mail my labor, and funds are frightfully restricted. I could also live quite comfortably in a storage unit with a water source and a compost pile. Bikey transports, backpack office. Beany rices, flour and yeast. The silent invisible ascetic in the heart of the machine. I’d rather have roommates and bedmates. And, while having a sex/contact only attendant would be blissful in and of itself, I’d rather work with everyone for common ends. Even art requires grunt work on occasion. Maybe the best art is grunt work.
“But at the same time, many commentators have voiced anxiety because of the mystery which surrounds the anti-Qaddafi transitional government which emerged at the beginning of March in the city of Benghazi, located in the Cyrenaica district of north-eastern Libya. This government has already been recognized by France and Portugal as the sole legitimate representative of the Libyan people. The rebel council seems to be composed of just over 30 delegates, many of whom are enveloped in obscurity. In addition, the names of more than a dozen members of the rebel council are being kept secret, allegedly to protect them from the vengeance of Qaddafi. But there may be other reasons for the anonymity of these figures. Despite much uncertainty, the United Nations and its several key NATO countries, including the United States, have rushed forward to assist the armed forces of this rebel regime with air strikes, leading to the loss of one or two coalition aircraft and the prospect of heavier losses to come, especially if there should be an invasion. It is high time that American and European publics learned something more about this rebel regime which is supposed to represent a democratic and humanitarian alternative to Gaddafi.”
“What is al Qaeda and Why the CIA Has Used It
Al Qaeda is not a centralized organization, but rather a gaggle or congeries of fanatics, dupes, psychotics, misfits, double agents, provocateurs, mercenaries, and other elements. As noted, Al Qaeda was founded by the United States and the British during the struggle against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Many of its leaders, such as the reputed second-in-command Ayman Zawahiri and the current rising star Anwar Awlaki, are evidently double agents of MI-6 and/or the CIA. The basic belief structure of Al Qaeda is that all existing Arab and Moslem governments are illegitimate and should be destroyed, because they do not represent the caliphate which Al Qaeda asserts is described by the Koran. This means that the Al Qaeda ideology offers a ready and easy way for the Anglo-American secret intelligence agencies to attack and destabilize existing Arab and Muslim governments as part of the ceaseless need of imperialism and colonialism to loot and attack the developing nations. This is precisely what is happening in Libya today.”
“itself a creation of British intelligence in Egypt in the late 1920s.”
Al Qaeda is run by the warmongers of the west, you fucking idiots. These are our spies, assets, and weapons.
“we do not need to believe in all the fantastic mythology which the United States government has spun around the name of Al Qaeda in order to recognize the basic fact that militants or patsies who spontaneously join al Qaeda are often sincerely motivated by a deep hatred of the United States and a burning desire to kill Americans, as well as Europeans. The Bush administration policy used the alleged presence of Al Qaeda as a pretext for direct military attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq. The Obama administration is now doing something different, intervening on the side of a rebellion in which Al Qaeda and its co-thinkers are heavily represented while attacking the secular authoritarian government of Colonel Gaddafi. Both of these policies are bankrupt and must be abandoned”
Your tax dollars fund the heads of Al Qaeda. Anyone that says armed aggression is the solution is clearly an enemy of humanity.
So, according to this piece, the “rebels” as the media have portrayed them are the old guard’s loyalists, but they won’t even release their names.
If you aren’t aware of the positive goals of an organization, don’t work for them. If screaming and putting a gun in your hand is all they can do, walk away. The calm and thoughtful will now run things here.
Think about a secretive militaristic organization. Money and orders come in, and shooting and/or blowing stuff/people up seems to be the only “solution” available. Do we not have the capability to track any of this money? Are we not going to hold the funders of these covert war-creation activities accountable for what they’re doing. This planet is fucked. The last 5 US presidents and their entire administrations ought to be hanged for war atrocities and human rights abuses. Congresses, too. You people are utterly worthless.
“Al Qaeda from Demon to US ally in Libya
For those who attempt to follow the ins and outs of the CIA’s management of its various patsy organizations inside the realm of presumed Islamic terrorism, it may be useful to trace the transformation of the LIFG-AQIM from deadly enemy to close ally. This phenomenon is closely linked to the general reversal of the ideological fronts of US imperialism that marks the divide between the Bush-Cheney-neocon administrations and the current Obama-Brzezinski-International Crisis Group regime. The Bush approach was to use the alleged presence of Al Qaeda as a reason for direct military attack. The Obama method is to use Al Qaeda to overthrow independent governments, and then either Balkanize and partition the countries in question, or else use them as kamikaze puppets against larger enemies like Russia, China, or Iran. This approach implies a more or less open fraternization with terrorist groups, which was signaled in a general way in Obamas famous Cairo speech of 2009. The links of the Obama campaign to the terrorist organizations deployed by the CIA against Russia were already a matter of public record three years ago. (highlighting in original)”
“The War Against the Nation State
Today’s attack on Libya comes in the context of a broad attack on the institution of the sovereign nation state itself, as it has existed since the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648. The United States and the British are deeply concerned by the large number of nations which are seeking to escape from Anglo-American hegemony by actively pursuing large-scale cooperation with Russia on security, with China on economic questions, and with Iran for geopolitical considerations. The CIA/MI-6 response has been a wild orgy of destabilizations, people power coups, color revolutions, and palace putsches, signaled by the document dumps by the CIA limited hangout operation known as Wikileaks, which has targeted names of the CIA hit mist from Ben Ali to Qaddafi. The Obama strategy would have preferred an exclusive reliance and the illusion that the Arab Spring was really a matter of youthful visionary idealists gathering in the public square to praise democracy, the rule of law, and human rights. This was never the reality: the actual decisions were being made by brutal cliques of generals and top officials bribed or blackmailed by the CIA who were moving behind the scenes to oust such figures as Ben Ali or Mubarak. Whatever else Qaddafi has done, he has undoubtedly forced the CIA and NATO to drop the pleasant mask of youthful idealism and human rights, revealing a hideous visage of Predator drones, terror bombing, widespread slaughter, and colonialist arrogance underneath. Qaddafi has also ripped the mask of “Yes We Can” off Obama, revealing a cynical warmonger intent on the continuation of Bush’s infamous “Dead or Alive” and “Bring it on” policies, although by other means”
“The objective is not to come to the rescue of civilians.
Quite the opposite. Both military as well as civilian targets have been pre-selected.
Civilian casualties are intentional. They are not the result of ‘collateral damage’.
Early reports confirm that hospitals, civilian airports and government buildings have been bombed.”
So the “media” that you listen to says this. This shit is real-time now. No need to wait four years for a whistleblower book to come out. These people are tweeting and blogging and posting on fb. You can’t fucking kill us and lie to us forever.
This is the doublespeak of it:
“Humanitarian Bombing and Responsibility to Protect (R2P)
The purpose of these bombardments is to destroy the country’s institutions, its productive base. It’s called ‘humanitarian bombing’. It is justified under the concept of ‘Responsibility to Protect’ (R2P). Power generating facilities, bridges, roads, hospitals, TV stations, government buildings, factories, are singled out as strategic targets.”
So, they (we) destroy the local infrastructure and are told that there are no casualties. They just “call” it a peacekeeping mission, because they’re not attacking trained soldiers. I thought that was against the Geneva convention? What does that even matter? What a cruel, ugly joke.
Your boy Clinton did this. That means you did. We all did.
At least some Canadians still have a conscience, and/or understand international humanitarian law. It’s too bad it’s only the pilots of the planes sent to drop bombs who can actually do anything to stop this.
Watch this guy.
Hey, you, who listen to “both sides.” There’s a much larger world out there. You should listen to a broader diversity of sources if you want to know all that’s going on. Scientists and academics saying these things don’t make it on the news. Ask yourself why.
Recognize the excuses, call out the liars. Demand of your “public servants” that they understand the big picture of the world and act accordingly. I represent humanity.
p.s. I didn’t have tea earlier. My first cup and it’s 5 pm. Where does the day go? I ate delicious pancakes this morning. I did it wrong, of course. Maple syrup is divine. I’ve seen a few relatively large sap/syruping operations in my day. I could run one of those.
Oh, heh, she’s back. Off. When there are other people to make faces at her, she’s ok. When she’s alone or in the studio on the microphone, yikes. On and on, no break of dawn. That doesn’t sound like any blogs you know, does it? I call ‘em how I see ‘em.
You, mademoiselle (not into the whole “brevity” thing), are beautiful. Your wish is my command.
Bypass the system. Write a contract amongst human beings that transcends borders, ownership, and “civilization.” Maximize beneficial acts with a universal-profit motive. Share all. Reveal sources. Share sources. Put forth that which strengthens humanity, creates/promotes health, and above all, be happy. Enjoy the beautiful things around you, surrounded as they may be by a world of jealousy, fear, corruption, and lies. Demand that your soldiers lay down their weapons. There is no “just war.” By definition, it is a large-scale criminal act.
Nobody is forced to do anything. You choose your war-material-fascist-supporting lifestyle. I tell you to you face exactly why I disagree with everything you stand for.
I maxed out my “likes” on fb last night. I felt like I got that “you have reached the end of the internet error.” Oh well. I could just add my Wikipedia db to my site. That would be the logical thing to do. All these word docs, and nobody seems to care.
I must start outlining the story. Shall I script it right away, or write it as a book?
