I'm Gone, I'm Gone, I'm Gone.
There's been a death in the family, so I'll be gone for several days.
Peace and Good Health.

A Song For You.
"The Preacher and the Slave" -- by Joe Hill, executed here many years ago for his political beliefs; but he ain't dead, no, he ain't dead. Sung to the tune of "Sweet Bye and Bye."
Long-haired preachers come out every night,
I love that fuckin' song.
Click Here for a little history about the song and where it came from.
Karen Kwiatkowski's Story.
Check it out.
Lengthy, but important.

"This is Preservation Month. I appreciate preservation. It's what you do when you run for president. You gotta preserve." -- George W Bush speaking during PERSEVERANCE Month at Fairgrounds Elementary School in Nashua, N.H.
I'm sure Fundies will see no problem with this, which highlights their total disregard for the health and well-being of "the children." An elementary school teacher showed his students a bootleg copy of Passion of the Christ -- a movie which has already led to the death of at least one movie-goer (which adds some credence to the claims that it is one of the most violent movies ever.) Asshole. Suspension is too good for him.
UPDATE! -- More info here.
Even A Ph.D. Can Be A Moron.
Matt at Morons.org demonstrates.
An Update On Anarchy Class At Fort Lewis College.
"If ten people walk beyond civilization and build a new sort of life for themselves, then those ten are already living in the next paradigm from the first day. They don't need to belong to a party or a movement. They don't need laws to be passed. They don't need permits. They don't need a constitution. They don't need tax exempt status. For those ten, the revolution will already have succeeded."
Read The Rest.
UPDATE! -- Oops, no, I think that's the same article as before. No new info there. That's what I get for posting before I've finished reading. It's a good article though; worth the time to read it.
And ya know, I didn't realize this before: It's fucking hilarious that conservatives want an "Academic Bill of Rights" that would require more conservative teachers to be hired. Sounds a bit like Affirmative Action to me (except it's stupid.) It just shows-ta-go-ya that Right-Wingers don't really mind "quotas" at all -- just as long as they're the ones who benefit from them. Ha. Hilarious. Fuciking brilliant.
Yet Another Reason To Save Hubble.
Hubble has just taken the deepest picture of the Universe ever, a mere month after the dumb fucks at NASA (under orders from the White House, I'm sure, but time will tell,) gave a final "no" to keeping the telescope going. Fucking bureaucrats and whores.
Hubble is not lost yet though, Representative Mark Udall has introduced a bill in the House to save our greatest scientific resource. Don't expect those fucks to do anything about it though -- unless we show them how important it is. Write your Rep in the House and tell them to support the Save Hubble Bill and then write your Senators and tell them to take some damn initiative on this matter. And maybe then you might try writing the Resident Shrub, but I doubt that ignorant little shit will listen. You can find all the contact info for your elected officials at Act For Change.
UPDATE! -- Oh, yeah, check out the cool pictures at the Hubble Website.
Okay, Here We Go....
First my phone got cut off, but I got that taken care of in a couple days. Then I played paintball for two days. Then I was too sore to move for a day. And now my computer has crashed and I haven't been able to figure out what the problem is.
The hard drive is fine and I got most of my data backed up, but it doesn't power on anymore. I don't know. Fuck it, I've set up my old 233MHz piece-o-shit-o-matic for the time being. I'll try to get posting again tomorrow; right now I've got to install all the programs I need on this computer and try to find the user manual for my other motherboard so I can figure out what's wrong with the damn thing.
Until later: Peace and good health.
UPDATE! -- Okay, maybe I will post today.
