Please pass the word!

Zeroth Amendment. Bookmarked, Journaled, Kicked and Rec'd. Thanks, very good.

Thanks for that pic. Always loved his smiles!

He had awesome skills and was very funny, too:

He stole the show with a sense of childish glee. But Sulu was usually serious:

Well described in the latest ~NSFW~ Mike Malloy Uncensored Hate Mail Edition:

Reason they are called Ammosexuals, is it's all about the genitalia, always.

Good for TARGET. This should put the Libertarian wingnuts on notice about their other fetish:


They want roads, parks. schools and everything to be in private hands, destroying the freedom the Commons allows for networking. And if the owners say no to their speech, their right to travel freely, associate and agitate, hey, they asked for it!

They WILL lose their own rights, but think that's for those 'other people.' BZZZT! Wrong answer!

If you're not a full-fledged millionaire, guess who is the 'other people,' you gleeful members of the insane clown posse?

Yes, I'm talking to you, Bro, and not gonna feel sorry for you, because you wanted to take it from me and mine, first.

Sadly, benighted areas allowing open carry of personal WMD to satisfy the egos of the Kokesh types in our country will continue to create a toxic atmosphere in public venues to keep everyone on edge to control them and silence them with their tantrums. This is simply textbook Crazymaking:


Or the Double Bind:


They SAY they want for people to not be afraid of their toys, and bluster about freedom, but it's irrational to believe them. Guns are for war and hunting. We've seen their list of who they want to hunt and it's a very long one.

Too bad if they get their true heart's desire and eliminate the humans on the list, there will be no one to stand up for them when guys with more money and bigger guns come for them. Look at Iraq. History repeats...

It's possible they are so lost in their Faux, Beck and Infowars reality, they really don't know WTH they are creating. They are bordering terrorism with their insistence that only THEIR rights matter. Only their viewpoint counts, no one else had better argue with them. Just like Boko Harum and ISIL. Anyone who dares to oppose them could get this treatment:

I want to thank the 400K who petitioned TARGET to stop this insanity, and hope for more of it.

Nah, no misogyny there!

Thanks for posting the article by Monford...

He looks like he's running, but he's going to work until his job is done:

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

~ Robert Frost

Most interesting part was here:

...in places open to all, practices or attitudes which would fundamentally call into question the possibility of open interpersonal relationships, which, by virtue of an established consensus, formed an indispensable element of community life within the society in question...

Beats the SCOTUS hands down for getting to the heart of the matter.

Wait until young women (and men) hear what their real agenda is:

The First Feminist President, Barack Obama

by Mandy Van Deven

March 23, 2009

On January 20th the first self-identified feminist was named President of the United States of America. Just two days after taking office, Barack Obama performed his first presidential act of solidarity with women around the world by repealing the Global Gag Rule. Established in 1984 by President Reagan, the Global Gag Rule denies aid to international groups "which perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning."

The Global Gag Rule has come to be seen as a litmus test of the current US President's stance on women's rights, though it is just one aspect of the complicated story of the impact of American reproductive rights policy in countries around the globe.

After witnessing the impact of President Bush's reinstatement of the Global Gag Rule, Michelle Goldberg, journalist, author, and long-time critic of the Bush Administration's policies on sexual and reproductive health, decided that a book about the global battle for reproductive justice was long overdue. So she wrote The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power, and the Future of the World.

The cover art depicting a woman holding the Earth on her shoulders is more than appropriate for this deeply-researched, historically-informed examination: fifty years worth of research about four continents has convinced Goldberg that women's oppression is at the crux of many of the world's most intractable challenges. She illustrates how US policies act as a catalyst for or an impediment to women's rights worldwide, and puts forth a convincing argument that women's liberation worldwide is key to solving some of our most daunting problems.

"Underlying diverse conflicts - demography, natural resources, human rights, and religious mores - is the question of who controls the means of reproduction," she writes. "Women's intimate lives have become inextricably tied to global forces."


The war on women is not just a war on women, but on men, too. Men who don't support women's rights are sealing their own fate.

Not just an American problem. It is about global control and reducing all of mankind to commodities.
