To the masked G20 protestors

Setting cars on fire so that nasty smoke billows out into the air like the capitalists make, the cars possibly blowing up/shooting off glass hurting people and other animals, throwing things at police, who are human beings, throwing things at horses (Gleneagles and other summits/don't know if happened in TO), trying to hit police with protest banner sticks, etc., etc. is not the "change" I want to see in the world, and, as an anarchist, I, too, am for the replacement of capitalism. Imagine the general populace trying to filter through all this thanks to the police and the corporate media. If we don't do what we do with love in our hearts, we are tools of the status quo, pawns showing up to play our parts at the summit theatre, "justifying" the very repression we oppose. Take the masks off. Go to jail for what you believe. Give good interviews so the people know why you did what you did. With love in your heart.

This week I have swine flu, West Nile, SARS and a raging disgust for the panic-mongering elite all rolled into one

It's "woman," fascists

What's with this new corporate media preference for the word "female" to replace woman/women? (AP/Reuters/UPI/CanWest ad nauseum headlines reading, for example, "Iran hangs female" or "Female soldier killed in Afghanistan.")

I wonder if it comes from cop jargon: a [race] female or [race] male was shot.... Nothing like objectifying us even further/equating us with members of some subordinate species. Oh, yeah, that's right, to the rulers and their apologists we are.

Obamanausea really sweeping over me

A wave of sad and sickening mass dementia is leading these numbed and desperate people, who can't feel the power to change the world already lying in their own hands, to worship corporate-media-created saviours. They are Jim Jones' folks heading for the Koolaid.

Poor deeply troubled elite (and their help)

By Deb Riechmann, The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Citing danger to American economy, the Bush administration came to the rescue of the U.S. auto industry Friday, offering US$17.4 billion in emergency loans in exchange for concessions from the deeply troubled carmakers and their workers.

"Carmakers" don't MAKE cars. They exploit the labour of those who DO. THEIR workers = enough said. BOSSES don't make "concessions": WORKERS DO, in great part because the class collaborationist union bureaucracy sells workers out daily, always identifying with the poor bosses. Way past time for more sit-down strikes and ignoring house slave "representatives."
