i do NOT care what your beliefs are. HOWEVER, if you are on a school board and  you ADVOCATE SUICIDE for some school kids ON A PUBLIC FORUM, there is something VERY wrong with you and if the school board doesn't immediately DO 'something' about you, there is something VERY wrong with all of them as well.

Caught: Fake voting flyers distributed to African American voters in Texas
 By Eric W. Dolan

An unknown group handed out misleading fliers to voters in a primarily African American polling place in Houston, Texas, reports KTRK.
The fliers, which were handed out near an early voting location Tuesday night, claimed that "Republicans are trying to trick us" and said that voting Democrat was actually voting for Republicans...............

i am ALL over this!

hey maura kelly

keep your fucking apology. we don't want it. we don't need it. AND more importantly YOU DON'T FUCKING MEAN IT. (i'm guessing you were asked to do it OR; you realized you made a BIG FAT MISTAKE (so to speak). BUT i know you didn't get UNdisgusted by fat people overnight (well, that will never happen with you, will it?). i don't read marie claire (and now i never will). i don't care about marie claire. i don't know what the demographic is. i DO know i don't know one american woman who is happy with her body (as you, being an anorexic are NOT). why? because of people like you. because of the ad industry. because of the fashion industry. we're too dark skinned or light skinned or our hair is too straight or too curly or our eyes aren't the right color or we're too tall or too short.

fuck you ALL. in order to be happy with others, WE MUST be happy with ourselves FIRST and FOREMOST. love yourself, be comfortable with yourself and the rest will follow easily.

(i think it's important to be healthy by the way, i just think american woman are too fucked up about their looks and their bodies)

NBC station: Will acceptance of gays bring downfall of America?
 By Daniel Tencer
An east Texas NBC affiliate devoted a segment on its morning show Wednesday to ask viewers and listeners if acceptance of gays will bring the downfall of the country.
"The acceptance of homosexuality, pushed hard by the gay rights activists, will it be the fall of this country?" asked Garth Maier, host of KETK's morning radio program. The segment was broadcast on KETK's TV channel as well.
The channel's TV hosts introduced the segment with a reference to an Associated Press report Tuesday that President Obama has appointed a record number of openly gay individuals to posts in the administration -- more than 150 so far.
"And he's only been in office for two years," one of the morning hosts said, adding that the news has "not really gotten any coverage ... but that's what we're talking about."..............

i've blogged about the bechdel test before

but reading the following post from i blame the patriarchy is worth reading (about it) AGAIN

boy story

Advanced patriarchy blamers have already strapped into their handydyke utility belt of blaming techniques the Bechdel Test. But a little refresher can’t hurt, so check out the vid.
The Bechdel test dates back to the 80’s and Alison Bechdel’s iconic comic Dykes to Watch Out For. The test aims the Blistering Beacon of Blame at the infrequency with which female characters in film are represented as fully realized human beings.
To pass the test, a film (or, if you like, any other sort of arty or infotainment-y work*) has to have at least two female characters, the characters have to have names, and they have to have a conversation about something other than dudes.
These criteria are always burbling in the back of the my lobe as I ingest media from the various screens in my life. Constant scanning for representations of female characters that even vaguely nod at the truth makes the act of consuming entertainment absolutely exhausting. You more or less expect women to be characterized as dude accessories in pre-feminist movies, but the scarcity of more recently produced shows that pass the test continues to boggle the spinster mind. The other day during an episode of “Star Trek Voyager” I did the butt-dance when Janeway and Torres had a discussion about a warp core breach. Of course, they do that on every episode. I personally think the Bechdel test ought to exclude Janeway-Torres warp core breach discussions.................

wicked interesting

from uncertain times

who got it from hellhoundonmytrail:

Lee Shelton “Stagger Lee” (March 16, 1865 - March 11, 1912)
“William Lyons, 25, coloured, a levee hand, living at 1410 Morgan Street, was shot in the abdomen yesterday evening at 10 o’clock in the saloon of Bill Curtis, at Eleventh and Morgan streets, by Lee Sheldon, also coloured.
Both parties, it seems, had been drinking, and were feeling in exuberant spirits. Lyons and Sheldon were friends and were talking together. The discussion drifted to politics, and an argument was started, the conclusion of which was that Lyons snatched Sheldon’s hat from his head. The latter indignantly demanded its return. Lyons refused, and Sheldon drew his revolver and shot Lyons in the abdomen […] When his victim fell to the floor, Sheldon took his hat from the hand of the wounded man and coolly walked away.
He was subsequently arrested and locked up at the Chestnut Street Station. Lyons was taken to the Dispensary, where his wounds were pronounced serious. Lee Sheldon is also known as ‘Stag’ Lee.”
- St Louis Globe-Democrat, December 26, 1895.
 Yep, the song has its roots in reality, though little of that reality made it into the lyrics as the years went by. The details of what happened are fortunately recorded in the trial transcripts. According to witnesses:..........................

"And I think it is simply this, that in the culture of NPR, appearing on Fox is a sin. And in the culture of NPR, for an African American man like Juan, regardless of his extraordinary stature, to be there and be kind of a Bill Cosby liberal, not a down-the-line liberal, is a sin as well."

Ex-top soldier: US has never lost a war to openly serving gays
By David Edwards

A former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff suggested Sunday that gays shouldn't be able to openly serve in the US military because no country with openly serving gays has ever defeated the US in a war.............

i don't necessarily agree with this

but i don't necessarily disagree either. i have long hair. i have almost always had long hair. i wash it in the evening and when i wake up, it's still wet. i always wear it in a bun (ok, EVERY once in a blue moon i wear a braid). as a rule i just use shampoo and some kind of conditioner. i do NOT own a blow dryer, hair spray, gel, relaxer, curler or anything in between. i have gone for MONTHS on the 'no poo' routine (that is where you do NOT use any shampoo. you use a bit of baking soda in water as your cleanser and a bit of vinegar in water as  your conditioner). it works. i know you're dubious, but it DOES work. this picture of me was taken a few years back. my hair has remained this length give or take for a good while now.  recently there was a video everyone was watching. it was from sesame street and it involved a video of a lil' grrrl singing, 'i love my hair'. it was written by a man for his adopted daughter. dad (and mom too) is white and the daughter is from ethiopia. one day she saw a barbie and i guess she lamented the lack of HER having long blonde hair. i loved the video, don't get me wrong. HOWEVER, i think dad didn't quite understand. women and hair isn't quite a black (or white) thing. it's a UNIVERSAL thing. women with black hair dream about blonde hair. women with blond hair dream of going red. women with a natural dream of locks. women with locks dream of chopping them off. women with curly hair want straight. women with straight hair want curly. women with long want short, women with short want long. it's the way it is. yes, it's universal.  be happy and comfortable with who YOU are. if you're not, no one else can be either (that's sage advice and i give it freely. TAKE IT)

Why Can’t Middle-Aged Women Have Long Hair?

MY mother hates it. My sister worries about it. My agent thinks I’m hiding behind it. A concerned friend suggests that it undermines my professional credibility. But in the middle of my life, I’m happy with it. Which is saying a lot about anything happening to my 55-year-old body.
I feel great about my hair.
I have long hair. I’m not talking about long enough to brush gently on my shoulder — when I tilt my head. I’m not talking about being a couple of weeks late to the hairdresser. I’m talking long. Long enough for a ponytail with swing to it. Long enough to sit against when I’m in a chair. Long enough to have to lift it up out of the sweater I’m pulling over my head. Long enough to braid.............

Industry pressure hides gun traces, protects dealers from public scrutiny
Washington Post Staff Writers  

Under the law, investigators cannot reveal federal firearms tracing information that shows how often a dealer sells guns that end up seized in crimes. The law effectively shields retailers from lawsuits, academic study and public scrutiny. It also keeps the spotlight off the relationship between rogue gun dealers and the black market in firearms. 

Such information used to be available under a simple Freedom of Information Act request. But seven years ago, under pressure from the gun lobby, Congress blacked out the information by passing the so-called Tiahrt amendment, named for Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.). The law removed from the public record a government database that traces guns recovered in crimes back to the dealers.
"It was extraordinary, and the most offensive thing you can think of," said Chuck Wexler, director of the Police Executive Research Forum, a nonprofit group for police chiefs. "The tracing data, which is now secret, helped us see the big picture of where guns are coming from.".......................

The dead and wounded range in age from 9 to 20, officials said. The shooters scattered and no one has been arrested...........
