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,
Try to tell you what's wrong and what's right;
But when asked how 'bout something to eat
They will answer with voices so sweet:
CHORUS:
You will eat, bye and bye,
In that glorious land above the sky;
Work and pray, live on hay,
You'll get pie in the sky when you die.

The starvation army they play,
They sing and they clap and they pray
'Till they get all your coin on the drum
Then they'll tell you when you're on the bum:

Holy Rollers and jumpers come out,
They holler, they jump and they shout.
Give your money to Jesus they say,
He will cure all diseases today.

If you fight hard for children and wife --
Try to get something good in this life --
You're a sinner and bad man, they tell,
When you die you will sure go to hell.

Workingmen of all countries, unite,
Side by side we for freedom will fight;
When the world and its wealth we have gained
To the grafters we'll sing this refrain:

FINAL CHORUS:
You will eat, bye and bye,
When you've learned how to cook and to fry.
Chop some wood, 'twill do you good,
And you'll eat in the sweet bye and bye.

I love that fuckin' song.

Resident Preserves.

From Factivism:
"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.

Hahahahahahahaha.




 
Stupid Teachers.

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.

An Update On Anarchy Class At Fort Lewis College.

From Infoshop:
"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."

--snip--

It was the first day of Professor Mark Seis' "Deconstructing Systems in the Pursuit of Anarchy," class at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. A class about anarchy which was taught by an "authority" on the subject... how ironic to explore the idea of a world without a state in a class funded by the state. Seis met the hypocrisy with open arms and dug right in. He had started off the semester with visionary novelist Daniel Quinn's quote, not realizing how strongly this juxtaposition of anarchy and authority would carry through to the end of the semester.

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.
