Guess what? [31 Aug 2007|12:35am]

I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad.

You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell,

'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it:
"I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

Apathy is our worst enemy.

And I FUEL it.

I cant quite put my finger on it, but theres something incredibly fishy about this website.

Becomered.com

APPARENTLY, these fine, god-fearing, creepy folks want to help the folks out in Africa by sending them a portion of the revenue from the goods of several different companies towards grants and funds for antiviral research, as well as what available medication we have now. SO. I don’t know about you, but this is the first instance ive ever seen an organization attempt to help a third world country by convincing them to BUY THINGS.

They are NOT non-profit, im sure they get a huge chunk for this, and they are not shy about this fact. Products sponsered by (RED) are GAP, Converse, American Express and a few others. This whole thing just reeks of IMF and WTO, but how exactly is GAP and Converse trying to take over the world like those two monsters? I need time to research this. More on this later.

Why is there an uneasy feeling in my gut?

Could this actually be a good thing? Turning America's greed and sloth into a positive thing? All you have to do to save the world is go to the mall and get some new digs. Outstanding. Now any lazy idealist can pretend he cares and it doesnt cost anywhere near as much as a hybrid!

...Why is there an uneasy feeling in my gut?

Anarchy in France (Agitprop from a Beginner), Copylefted [08 Nov 2005|05:29am]

lunglife
For those of you unfortunate enough to have access to television (i feel your pain), you may have noticed the coverage of the recent riots in France, which have been raging for nearly two weeks now.

It was started when two youths (French-born Muslims, of North African descent) were accidently electrocuted when allegedly running from people, something the police passionately deny. Whether or not it had anything to do with swine in general, many other young adults and teenagers took to the streets and proclaimed their anger. Though ignited by this tragic event, it was in turn fueled by a very deeply ingrained problem with Muslim intergration.

The Arabs in France have a similar situation to America that African-Americans have had (had?) and Latinoes still have; something we here in the states can easily relate to. Descrimination haunts anyone but whitey in France, unemployment is at all-time high, (minorities are almost expected to be poor) and nothing seems to be getting done since the officals believe their vision of "equality" is sufficient. French President Jacques Chirac acknowledged that France has failed to integrate French-born children of Arab and African immigrants living in poor suburbs; at least he let on that there was a reason for the riots in the first place. Interior Minister Nicolas Sakozy referenced to the troublemakers as "scum" and demeaned them an agitating "rabble", folks who just need to be dealt with and pacified. No wonder they're so pissed off! Police are being shot at and their stations being burned down, thousands of cars are being torched (Gods forbide im liberated of the wretched automobile), and everyone but a few are reporting it as teenage rebellion without a cause. I read one opinion article where the author critized the youths of using thier cell phones to notify each other of police and firemen locations. "These poor, oppressed youth are using cell phones and text messaging? Anyway, I realize there is no "American dream" in France, but it sounds like the kids are just bored. I get bored all the time." You sound like Sakozy, asshole. That's why they're poor in the first place, minutes cost money! :P

France recently posed a mandatory nation-wide curfew to curb the violence. HA! That'll work! Who'll enforce it, the police that cant curb a dozen or so kids with molotovs at a time? The firemen whoes trucks dont hold enough water for put out the fires AND the spirts? If they knew any better, they'd curb them with more words and lies and promises of change, like our government does.

Silly silly Frenchmen.

I hope we all learned something from this. What, I cant tell you, but thats what hope is, desire for an unknown solution.

Fight fouls, kids.

gasmask society is a place to start. it is a place organize what you think should happen and make it happen. know of a racist business? tag it, take a picture, and post it here. see a crooked cop? post his badge number and make sure he gets harassed to the fullest extent of the law...and maybe beyond. this is a place to start. post your articles, organize protests, give driections on making and serving a molotov cocktail. this is your revolution. this is your society. remember, it is only you who can make your ideas, beliefs, ideals manifest into something the whole world can enjoy. this is a place to start.

WHO ARE WE?
brent barlow

Today we live in a land of lost identities, a land in which soceity tells us we should be everything excpt who we are. We live in an economy where people live their lives by magazine covers and commercials. I have come to realize that we are the products on the covers of those magazines and in that add on the radio. We have lost who we are and have become the first sales pitch thrown our way. We need to go back to who we are, find who ourselfs and embrace our own beleifs. It is our ideas and philosophies that makes us who we are. And when we all find ourselves we will also find differences and diversity. These differences are already prevalent today in our society and (in some cases) cause hate and biggotry. Now coming into one's self one should realize that he or she are their own person and (once agian) will see things differently from another person and through these differences one should not hate another for their beliefs but rather accept them, not as their own but as the other persons. THERE CAN BE UNITY THROUGH DIVERSITY. This will take time to accomplish but if we can tough it out then we all can be happier. The first thing you can do is to go out and make a difference in any way you can, start perhaps with finding who you are. Turn off the t.v. put down that magazine BE YOURSELF!

HEres a song that i heard and made me cry...... dont ussually shed a tear for alot of songs but here check it out its by the templars


Land of the Free
We pledge allegiance to the Stars and the Stripes
We elect leaders who abuse our rights
Behind the constitution they hide their face
to disguise their guilty conscience and their disgrace
I stand looking over the land of the free
but when I look at my country I can't believe what I see
CHORUS
There's no such thing as the land of the free
See it in the papers, schools, and t.v.
Still you say that you don't believe
but I'm not a fool, I won't be a tool
Side with them and we'll get you
This land was built -thru your forefather's sweat and blood
All they got in return was hate and distrust
Decaying wasteland from sea to shining sea
The slums get bigger, they turn their backs on our needs
Brother against brother, they fill our minds with hate
Fueling the flames until it blows up in their face
CHORUS
Do you still believe in the American dream
a white picket fence and a happy family
We're all blinded by the images that they feed
But when the drugs wear off, where will we be?
The decadence within, the beginning of the end
The empire falls and the vultures descend
CHORUS

Attention South Florida Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, and Humanists [04 Mar 2005|08:25pm]

masktchi
Our current members and I of the Broward Atheists Meetup (www.browardatheists.com and in www.meetup.com) welcome all interested in atheism, theism, freethought, agnosticism, humanism, transhumanism, state and church seperation (otherwise known as seperation of sturch), and related topics to our Tuesday meetings after 6:30pm. The www.browardatheists.com website has details on our venue, it is currently a pub, but will change when more members are acquired. We're already bulging at the seams with an average attendance of about twelve. No matter your age, beliefs, or preferences, we'd like to hear your opinion. Even the sternest Christians may come and present their thoughts, because if you really believe we're going to hell, we sure don't want to be wrong about the subject, haha, but most members are pretty confident about their atheism and agnosticism. I mention the invitation only to be open-minded. Anyways, we usually discuss religion, politics, philosophy, etc. but do not feel obligated to have to order anything despite it being a pub. There is no membership fee either, it is an informal event so far seeing how we have too few to be more organized, but we'd like to be! And we'd like to have enough people to start some activism and be as productive as possible.

Aside from the weekly Tuesday meetings, there are fun events such as campfires and beach barbeques scheduled. We sure would like to cooperate with other groups and more members to voice the rights and freedoms we and others deserve regardless of our beliefs and with your ideas and help, this can be made possible. The current goal is to eliminate the negative stigma attached to our labels by altruism and stoicism such as scholarships and good deeds. E-mail me with any questions or better yet, any one else you can get in contact with from the website to get a clearer understanding of who and what we are. We turn no one down and encourage debate, skepticism, and reason. The meetings are definitely worthwhile and interesting or else I wouldn't waste the little free time I have as a college student to invite any one else to come join the experience. If you are in the area and find the time inconvenient with your busy schedule, no hard feelings will be had, but at least sign the guestbook so we can know you support us and wish you could come. :-)

anti-capitalist rant [18 Jan 2005|09:21pm]

geremaya
[ mood | hopeful ]

I've outlined one of my biggest problems with society in this mostly mindless rant. I have problems getting people to talk with me about these ideas, and therefore have a difficult time developing ideas. Comments, criticism and support alike, would be really helpful to me.

I’m beginning to dislike his culture, this fucked up culture so brainwashed that we don't realize that we are selling our happiness for counterfeit happiness, too wrapped up in this ideal of "superiority" that life doesn't matter anymore, that nothing matters outside the pursuit of wealth. I heard once that whoever came up with that "pursuit of happiness" thing was countering another future president's suggestion of "pursuit of wealth." If it had been pursuit of power, they would all have been the same statement.
People in hunting and foraging societies generally work less than three hours a day. The rest of the time is spent socializing, chilling out, being human. In this "civilized society" we work like mad, pushing sixty, seventy, eighty hours a week. For what? For a paycheck, a symbol. We call it success. Success is measured in wasted time, time taken out of your life, away from your friends and family, away from your own psyche. Success is the amount of money you make, the amount of money you make depends on how many of hours you are willing to dedicate to kissing ass and sitting in and office or slaving in manual labor. We can’t be happy because happiness depends on security: having a home, food, loved ones. But we and our children are brainwashed (the average American teen spends more time in front of television than in front of teachers, clergy, or parents put together) into thinking that shelter is nothing less than the two story suburban home with constant new furniture and appliances because nothing lasts longer than its six-month warranty, that food is the plastic substance that not even mold will feed on from McDonalds, that love and sex are one and the same and come in a bottle of perfume or a bottle of beer or the perfect pair of jeans YOU WILL NEVER BE THIN ENOUGH TO WEAR. We consume and consume and consume these substances becoming more and more miserable and working harder and harder to achieve them because we don’t know that love is more than white-out colored teeth and dangerously thin thighs. Bits of paper that symbolize chunks of your life thrown away at some fast-food restraunt, some advertising firm, some construction job. A symbol that in fact has nothing to do with actual reality but we are all willing to live and die for.

Allow me to cheers and greetings as this is my first post and have just signed on with the community. I am trying to track down fellow activists going to DC. I am potentially traveling alone there as carpools are proving futile. Cost is a huge concern, but I will sleep where necessary and eat little if it means attending. Not much discussion is going on about who is going in many less "official" circles of resistance. We MUST make our presence strong and our resistance felt vibrating through the streets of DC! If anyone is going please reply and possibly we can discuss where and when is the place to meet with other like-minded activists. GLORY IN THE REVOLUTION!

bullshit [09 Nov 2004|01:01pm]

coloredskys
Ok. I know im not a big fan of either kerry or bush. but kerry was cheated.
and i know this is a repeated statement of 2000, but when i see evidence of it then its a bit weird to me.

so 800,000 votes are taken from Palm Beach County, Florida when only 400,000+ showed up to vote?
when multiple states had errors with the electronic voting system and many ballots probably tossed because of these errors.
when North Carolina casts 11,000 votes more than were shown by exit polls.


Well I dont think Kerry should have conceded, and when everyone is scared of terrorism and gays then why did the states mostly affected by terrorism (new york and new jersey) both vote in favor of kerry?

This is a system of bullshit propaganda and always has been but 9/11 was the greatest exused ever for the government to scare people? I do NOT think this is necesarry at all and is only used to gain votes and keep the terrorists in power.

17 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from where?

damn...saudi arabia?
holy shit.
but we attack iraq because saudi's invest in the bush family and the american way.
well
think about it.

this may sound cliche and a waste of your time..
but i was watching American History X last night...and ive seen it numerous times before..
but everything's always percieved differently at different stages in your life.
and a character in the movie asks this nazi character if anything he has done made his life better.and the nazi breaks down and cries because no, it has not.
and i was thinking if that goes both ways. as an activist for numerous causes---i feel as i become informed of new events/tragedy's...i become more enraged/upset...and of coarse you can meet these with demonstrations and educating other people but..there is still something missing I suppose..im not sure exactly how to word this but for those who understand....comment?

Take a fucking stand [09 Sep 2004|08:50pm]

no_es_mi_pais
I have been thinking alot lately and some of my thoughts I would like to post on here once again

The upcoming election is a big part of this. also the outlet they use to get their message out to the voters of this wonderfull wonderfull nation........




I can guarantee you that 8 out of 10 people get their politics from the Television or not so much there politics but the bullshit the two party system has to feed to them through the medium that they own and invest in.

Its a vicious cycle that is easy to see....

Watch Tv. That gives rating's and makes money. The owners of these million dollar stations make money and contribute to this bullshit two party system. Then the canidates use that media to convey there brain washing message you watch, contribute to their campaign. can you not see this?


IF you think about it how are people bonded? Its ussually common interests. Me personally ive made some of the greatest friends in my whole life through a few things music.... and or marxism and free thinking. and also my sexiness...

But I mean think about it when everyone shares alot of the same views that come from that Television from theirs they stand "united" remember all that bullshit that was aired during 9-11

how it bonded most of the country together...

WEll when everyone is reading and watching the same thing its easy to control their thoughts. The corporate owned media do it everyday and especially around election time they make sure that everyone gets fed the same bullshit. they make sure that the 3rd voice is drowned out that the two power houses are heard and nothing else. because those two power houses make them money

There are two messages im trying to convey in this
TAKE A FUCKING STAND, Resist all forms of bullshit media.... search out your own news. search out your own education. Fuck art schools. Fuck cnn. Fuck all that shit refuse these monuments to bullshit and rebuild its not time for revolution its time for resistance. Like Brent has been preaching. Althought I do not totally agree on everything he has had to say resistance is the first step. Refuse and Resist

well maybe i only had 1 thing to convey.... Its all about resistance and free mindedness. If you question cnn thats the first step towards liberating your own mind. questioning is the first step towards a better you and a better society

Refuse and Resist

i do confess i have grown very proud of this community and i am very appologetic that i havent been as active in it as i should be. its great to see todays youth not stagnating in thought and mindbut rathe growing and sharing. im so proud to see strength and a spirit of hope so strong that it cant be broken.but honestly its not enough and it never will be but that isnt a reason to quit or give up the resistence (note i said resistance not revolution ill get to this later). YOU SEE WE AS RACE, OUR SPECIES IF YOU WILL HAS AN UNCANNY GIFT A POWER OF CREATION NOT UNLIKE THAT OF "GODS" (i can understand if you dont like the terminology i chose here if yould like to look at it as a gift of story telling rather than the above said so beit but it is the same thing) now you might not beleive in god or his power or magick or any other supernatual powers or gifts that are said to be possessed by god whom man created if an unfathomable number of people cant justify killing, torturing , ostrisizing or simply shunning and degrading one another for a belief that was created by us to give us purpose and a positive set of standards to base our lifes on. god was created to help improve the quality of life only to become a key divider.all because man is a damn good story teller... and this is a fuckin amazing gift to have but you see the pronlem is how is that man can make some thing more powerful than him self. how is it that we set up a system of laws to make us comfortable functioning in day to day life only to find that this system has grown sooo big that we get nervous driving down the road when we see a cop even when do have done no wrongs. how is it that im afraid to sleep because i had just been sentenced to 60 days in l.a. county jail for such a charge we as a society today are a moder dr frankenstien living under the rule of our creations (for exmp. capitalism war relegion pride social classes) its come to a point where it to big to change or stop the most we can do any more is dedicate the rest of one life to resistance and teaching and helping one another out at almost all costs we to be be both the strong and sensitive we have to be hopeless romantics and fighters because if you arent touched moved or hurt especially hurt to hear of such tagedies and injustices of today you couldnt actually know that the problems truely lay dormant hidden behind the decoys and agendas of the news and instilled into the young through blind acceptence and and the other hand to be compassionate to the worlds problems without the balls or go get 'em mentality you ll just find your self suffering from a bad case of depression becauase youll see you cant change the world with just thought alone and to be honest too many people are out to change the wolrd to change the world would to require forcing the world to accept your beliefs which is what we are combating so now we look at our selves here now you tell me as a group and a comunity what exactly are we trying to accomplish? to try to change the world will do nothing but fill us with despair and discouragement but to nuetralize the curruption instilled in our lifes to live with purpose. i dont live in a life of my making but rather that of my parents so im not out to improve the my own live but rather looking out for my kid . resisteance not revolution!
