Syria

I was trying to find out if Syria has oil, and it does, but only 5% of the world's total production. Anyway, while looking for that, I found something else.

On a discussion of Syria: "UK is not supporting us in this."

My thought: "Well of COURSE NOT. The UK is the one selling Syria the fucking chemical weapons to begin with!"

So, the good news: the Supreme Court decided that Arizona's law requiring POC to show their citizenship papers to vote is wrong.

Bad news: Will Arizona listen? After all, the Supreme Court struck down the laws making sodomy (anal sex, kinky sex, gay sex, etc) illegal YEARS, even DECADES ago, but those laws are still on the books. The thing is, the Supreme Court can say whatever it wants, but the states are apparently under no real obligation to abide by its decisions.

So now the great question: will Arizona be forced to listen to the Supreme Court, or will they put their fingers in their ears and go "La dee da dee doo..."

News is talking about this year being a "Juneuary" in many places around the country. When I heard that, I immediately wished I could find a bunch of climate change deniers and say "No global warming, eh?"

I just got a letter from Social security saying they're going to be giving me about $40 more a month starting in January! WOO HOO! It'll still take some creative bill wrangling, and every little bit will still help, so donate even a few bucks if you can, please. But this will be a lot of help.

Also, since one person donated $10, I will give all of you a present of some kind (flash fiction, poem, or something else creative) on my LJ/DW for every donation, starting with that one. Just have to figure out what that will be. (I welcome suggestions.)

Mom and Dad are also sending early Xmas money, so that's going to help, too. Sahn-kia (many thanks), Shao'Kehn and all my readers, Koh Soh La Kohrain! :-) (You Are The All!)

My primary email service is Gmail. I have an old Yahoo account that I don't use anymore; I was just keeping it open to save some old emails. So if you receive any email from fayanora @ yahoo dot com, it is not coming from me. It is spam at least, and possibly a virus. Don't open it; delete it without opening it.

Now if it says it's from my gmail account, well AFAIK that's still safe and still me. (Same username, but @ gmail.com)

I think now I'll just let the yahoo email account die.

On a side note: FUCKING HELL, now Semagic has a fucking autocorrect. FUCK that.

So now peanut butter is getting too expensive for poor people and food banks to afford.  This is an important low-end staple food because it's high in protein and keeps well.  In case you were wondering, when your citizens can't obtain food, your society is made of FAIL.  Any staple becoming unaffordable is a giant red warning flag that is ON FIRE.

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.


Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

On the news: police officer (chief?) telling the #OWS protestors they need a permit to protest. Bullshit. The 1st Amendment of the Constitution is the only permit that's needed to protest.

If you see pictures purporting to be Occupy protesters desecrating flags, carrying anarchist signs, or doing violence, do not believe it. The opposition has started to turn its propaganda machine into full gear. These pictures are old, from unrelated protests, and are meant to discredit the Occupy/The 99% movement.

It started with false claims of "they don't seem to know what they're protesting" and is now getting nasty. Ignore these lies.

So the Sao Paulo City Council thought they needed a heterosexual pride day. Which is completely stupid! EVERY DAY is heterosexual pride day! Those damned heteros are every day flaunting their sexuality by kissing, holding hands, snuggling, even fucking in public. EVERY DAY!

So FUCK YOU Sao Paulo.

The FDA has issued a warning that counterfit morning after pills are being sold in the United States - particularly in Hispanic communities.

The pill is ineffective. I.e. it will not help you prevent an accidental pregnancy.

The packaging looks like this:

Obviously, the more you can "signal boost" this the better.

So now, not only is Goldman Sachs responsible for fucking up USA's economy, it's also at least partially responsible for Greece's financial woes, too. And if Greece's problems cause the whole European economy to collapse, then Goldman Sachs is responsible, in turn, for that as well. Same goes if the whole world's economy goes in the shitter due to a European economic collapse.

Goldman Sachs also has a long history of doing risky shit that fucks up the US's economy. They played a large role in the collapse that brought about the Great Depression, and had been making fuckups before and since.

With that in mind, can we PLEASE disband Goldman Sachs and put all its management staff in prison for life now? And re-instate the protections that were put in place after the Great Depression which had been intended to prevent another economic collapse? PLEEEEASE?

I am not being reactionary. I am not kidding, or exaggerating, when I say that Sarah Palin and anyone else calling themselves a member of the Tea Party needs to be arrested under whatever Homeland Security act needs to be invoked. They have taken the right to free speech too far. Just as you cannot shout "Fire!" in a crowded theater (unless there really is a fire), you should not be allowed to call for elected representatives of the United States (or any country, for that matter) to be assassinated. Arrest Sarah Palin and anyone else influential who has said - on TV, radio, or even their personal blogs or Twitters - that people should use violence against people who do not agree with them. This is not what politics in the USA should be like.

It is such a double standard, too! In the first place, anyone not a talking head who says someone like the President should be assassinated, the secret service takes them away and they disappear forever. And if Democrats had been acting like Sarah Palin has been acting, saying what she's been saying, during Bush's regime, there would have been mass arrests; lots of Democrats and others would have vanished into Guantanimo Bay never to be seen or heard from again. In fact, I'm wondering if Bush and Cheney were hoping such a thing would happen. And now the shoe's on the other foot, the Repugnantcans are possibly trying to goad us into the same.

Well I say FINE. If they want to go to Guantanimo so badly, then let's do it. I am not kidding or exaggerating. They have been publicly calling for the assassination of President Obama and others just because they're sore about losing, and because they're hateful racist bastards who can't think of any other way to make their fucked-up ideals come to power. And you know what? Whether they get arrested or not, I hope to all the Gods and Goddesses there are that it completely backfires on them. That the few decent people left in the Republican party kick the tea partiers out on their asses, and clean up the Republican party or remake it. Because so far, all they're doing is proving that those who voted for Obama and other Democrats are right.

I hate that our choices in this country are between spineless but optimistic pushovers, and playground bullies with guns. I hate what has become of this country.

The founding fathers were right. Democracies are a bad idea. USA was never intended to be a democracy, it's supposed to be a republic. And for the last decade, both sides have been showing the world just how bad democracy can be.

Stolen from [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith = I found this interesting option for activism: "Upset about invasive pat-downs in American airports? Here's how to stop it. Don't get upset. Don't refuse. Don't complain. Instead: moan. Writhe. Breathe heavy. If massive numbers of people start faking orgasm in the security line, I promise you that this will end in a hurry. Pass it on."
