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"
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?
Home of the Brave?
It’s not pitchfoks and shovels, this time.
What started as a ragtag bunch of peaceful protesters on Wall Street, has now blossomed into a worldwide Occupy Movement. When people around the world started to see the peaceful assembly being attacked and peaceful, unarmed protesters being brutalized by “public servants” who are supposed to “serve and protect” them, more and more supported them. Veterans showed up, to help protect them. A worldwide movement is now in full swing, with countries as far away as both Egypt and Israel, marching in solidarity with U.S. protesters who have been brutalized beyond belief.
One such protester, US Marine Scott Olsen, survived two tours in Iraq, only to come home and get hit in the head by an Oakland Police “projectile” and suffered brain injury to the speech center of his brain. His crime? Simply peacefully assembling. He is said to have “provoked no one” and footage of the incident shows there was no cause for police to abuse their power so forcefully that night.
Think about that one for a minute. Injured like this. Suffering brain damage to the speech center of his brain.
It’s enough to leave anyone speechless.
People have the right, in America, to free assembly. Without being pepper sprayed.
The world is watching, as cable news proves how irrelevant they are as a “news” source.
It’s all over the internet.
Do not let them silence your voice. Do not let them silence your vote. It is the only thing we have that is more powerful than all of them.
