Oscar Mayer says Blow Me
If I could live again - I will travel light, If I could live again - I'll try to work bare feet at the beginning of spring till the end of autumn. Jorge Luis Borges, Instants
Here's a sampling of the hate motivating those self-defined loyal American patriots itching to water the Tree of Liberty. Tim McViegh's effort to water that Tree of Liberty shed the innocent blood of 168 American citizens - 19 of which were just children. We can no longer allow the hate-filled rhetoric of these false patriots to overpower those voices calling for a more inclusive, peaceful America. We will not be dissuaded by their willingness to display weapons at public forums in an attempt to intimidate those with opposing views.
Whether we acknowledge it or not, we've been rationing health care for over fifty years. The working poor and homeless are effectively denied access to routine health care by their inability to afford the costs for even the most basic health care plan. A comment from a discussion on health care reform on Pandagon.net. sums it up nicely.
Whether or not we live or die - our physical and psychological well-being ARE NOT a fucking commodity to be treated as a means to get rich in the free marketplace, you fucking assholes. DTG in STL (Aug 5)
Blackwater Founder Implicated in Murder.By Jeremy Scahill The Nation Magazine
A former Blackwater employee and an ex-US Marine who has worked as a security operative for the company have made a series of explosive allegations in sworn statements filed on August 3 in federal court in Virginia. The two men claim that the company's owner, Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," and that Prince's companies "encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life."Michigan lost over 170 men and women fighting Cheney's false war while he and Dubya shoveled billions in taxpayer dollars to Erik Prince and Blackwater. If there's any justice in the world, Cheney will spend his remaining days behind bars in a federal prison. With Cheney's karma account severely overdrawn, he's due to spend his next several lives as a 5 legged, shit eating dung beetle.
