From Wall Street to...kill me now

Here's the explanation: Wall street f-ed up, so let's give them $700 billion dollars that (sorry, I have to do it) Main street will have to pay back simply to postpone (not prevent) the economic disasater at hand. Doesn't anybody remember history well enough to know that Joe Asshole was the one who had to load up all his belongings onto the back of his Model-T pickup truck and haul it across the country looking for work, while the fat cats on Wall Street maybe had to settle for one scoop of caviar instead of two with their morning ostrich egg? The markets will crash, and we will suffer, moreso with that $700 billion dollar debt on our backs, while Wall Street men and CEOs will be partying like it's 1929. The reason they don't explain this more clearly is because, well...it would really kind of make them look like a bunch of jerks.

The Art of Online Nudity

That's why I un-tagged all my cleavage shots on facebook recently when I got my first post-college job. Seriously, there were only a few, and only because my friends tend to be drunken perverts--then again, so were most of my past employers--but taking that first step into professional-world is worth a few sacrifices. Not being an internet whore is a good one to make.

9/11 in 33 Minutes: Determining the Official Story Cannot Be True

"Is this the climate we want to have in our public discourse, when so much is at stake?"This is what's truly frightening to me, really: the fact that so many people can't even consider this a legitimate debate because it threatens the fragile sense of security that they get from our government. The point is: the official story has holes in it. Huge ones. The fact that the government isn't even willing to provide us a better explanation or be open to criticism of the report implies that they have a motive to discontinue the discourse on this subject.

Seeking sustainability suggestions

I think city codes should be revised concerning the distance to occupied residences certain animals can be kept, such as chickens or goats.You can't get more local than milk and eggs from your own back yard. And, domestic food waste can be "recycled" by being fed to the animals.Or better yet, instead of a co-op garden, maybe we could have a co-op barn. People could buy goats and chickens, rent them space in a privately owned barn, cooperatively care for them and reap fresh produce. Ultimately, I think Lawrence is fit for encouraging independent ways of contributing to sustainabilty as well as garnering support for public initiatives.

It's Time Anti-War Activists Go Back to School

"The failure of many of our younger activists to understand the art of communication has been disastrous". Thank you!! for pointing out the real issue here. This is why I got fed up with a certain younger-activist-led ploticial movement on campus, and probably why nobody knows it exists, until you remind them that it's those radical hippies standing on Wescoe beach yelling about how the federal reserve has enslaved us all. I remember feeling so great when I began to look around me and see that people my age and younger are beginning to care about politics and actually DO something about it, and then I realized they just don't have any tact. And to the people out in front of Strong Hall last week with the two-story billboard displaying images of aborted babies, same goes for you. You're not sending a message, you're just grossing people out. That's just one of the things that's sad about the state of political discourse in this country today--the people who actually have something to say don't know how to say it in a way that their oponents can stomach listening to.As the blogger notes, one group of people has mastered the art of communication: the pro-North American Union reptilian neocons who have enslaved us and our media and are probably hiding the truth about Area 51, too. Oh yeah, and 9-11 is your fault.

Kevin Willmott's Isaac Hayes Story

Kudos for Wilmott on scoring Issac Hayes in that film, and my regards to the friends and family of the man who meant so much to so many people. That being said, how the hell did he get Martin Sheen?

Origins

I must admit I'm a libertarian as well, even a minarchist if you will. And while I agree that explaining how to apply an ideology to a given problem is not the same as explaining what it is, I also understand what it is to grapple with those who can hardly conceive of what it is you're trying to explain to them. Nonetheless, understanding what experiences and revelations lead you to believe as you do is sure to be an interesting adventure, if that is indeed the path this blog takes. And with all due respect, linking us to this particular Wikipedia article in response to the question"What is anarchism?" is like saying: I am a dog, and if you want to know what a dog is, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog What I'm trying to say is...what kind of anarchist are you? And most interestingly, do you consider yourself a collectivist or individualist? (Considering your leaning towards anarcho-communism and disbelief in the existence of anarcho-capitalism, I'd guess the former?)And remember, if it seems like we're picking on you, it's only cause we like you.
