Anaheim Police Take Aim at Unarmed Civilians.
The Mayor of Anaheim has a problem. First a police attack dog unleashed on women and children, then like a dog
with a taste for blood, Anaheim police have killed an unarmed civilian - again. This time, just miles from
Disneyland. Eight killings just this year. The first victim this last weekend, twenty-something Manuel Diaz,
reportedly shot in the back of the head and left to gasp for breath on the ground. Pronounced
dead on arrival at the hospital. 24 hours later, on Sunday, a second man, reportedly shot - "execution style"
in the back, according to new reports that the family has filed a lawsuit. Continue Reading...

As Rush Limbaugh’s sweaty, red faced corporate sponsors found out in a hurry, don’t piss off the sluts. Dropped like a hot potato, Rush is left to scramble around back peddling and mincing his way through the misogynistic hellhole he’s dug for himself. The Emperor, it seems, has no clothes. As dittoheads try to wrap their brains around how to justify his behavior, like any abuser, they out themselves. All we sluts have to do, is sit back and watch the show. And pass the popcorn.
So now, we have a triangulation of scandal, sex, and boycott – just enough – for We, The People to maybe get it? There is power in the boycott. There is history, in the boycott. We vote with our wallets. It’s really the only language those who value money over people understand.

So let’s fight fire, with fire.
Boycott Power. Boycott Greed. Especially dirty power. Boycott those who think they are above others, who think it’s okay to abuse others. To pollute our water, our air, and think nothing of crashing our economy overnight. Just ask Greece or Ireland. Continue Reading…

Back in the ’60’s, there was an awakening about war and other social issues, like what’s happening now, only they had more of a Free Press, and actual war reporting rather than just “embedded” press agents. How is the average person’s story told today? How are our voices heard? How do we find out what’s going on?

We all stand in it, whether we know it or not. His fierce independence, fiery will and strong voice stood strong for every man, and no one. Never pretended to be any different, than who he was, yet it was his sameness that stood for us all. Wild, rebellious and free, he spoke his mind and stood his ground. He’d been an outlaw and bad boy, yet loved deeper than most have ever known, and had seen pain far beyond most of our comprehension. Continue Reading…
It seems the entertainment industry is “uncomfortable with the internet.” They don’t like people freely sharing entertainment? They sound like a bunch of crybabies, just like the Wall Street dudes in diapers we highlighted earlier. I find it hard to have sympathy for their whining, when the people they want to penalize are the end user, the people who enjoy and buy their products, rather than those who are making a buck off those same users, who are sharing those products.
