To continue my text posts with a hint of something good and less rageface, made some good decisions tonight. Will be doing Registration instead of Ops for the convention in March; quit the convention in September pretty much completely. I feel so much better about everything and already enormously less stressed. Not stepping away from PCC though. You’d have to pry that from my cold dead...
"Anarchists" to Blame For ALEC Disruption;... →
One word: NO. I was there. Nobody was wielding sticks with nails in them. The cops broke some of our bigger signs, so yes, we had the sticks, but nobody was brandishing them as weapons There were absolutely no warnings that we were about to be pepper sprayed - nothing. This isn’t like UC Davis, or even the the first night Phoenix got arrested - we weren’t sitting on the ground,...

Pretty good article. Check your privileges.
"Get a job."
Listen, jerk that the cops let through the barricade even when they wouldn’t let us through because god forbid we cross the twelve feet gap too slowly or something, I have a job. I’ve had a job since I was 16 years old. I was unemployed for two months when I moved here last year, and that is the longest stretch of time I have been unemployed in my working life (also I...
Sometimes I think I will eventually get to the place where I realize that the obligations I chain on myself don’t have to be there.

OH MY EFFING GOD, I JUST GOT SPOILED FOR THE WALKING DEAD TONIGHT. JESUS CHRIST TUMBLR, WHY. WHYYYYYYYYYYY
We are going to be here forever, so I got this vanilla Starbucks double shot out of the machine and it tastes funny and my stomach hurts and everything sucks. Also I had hot wings for dinner, and now I’m having this very sugary double shot, and now I have cookies. Because remember, the meal isn’t over when I’m full… the meal is over when I hate myself. DESPAIR.

fyeahblackhistory: The last member of a 65,000-year-old tribe has died, taking one of the world’s earliest languages to the grave.

Had the opportunity to visit Occupy Tucson today since we’re home for the holiday. It was awesome to see how they do things and participate in their GA. We hung out with Loren and her boyfran and then had dinner at some place downtown, and then wandered back over after midnight to see them get cited. Tucson is getting cited now every night for staying in the park. It’s utterly...

jenerally: “WHAT IF THE BABY YOU ABORT COULD HAVE CURED CANCER?” What if the trans* person beaten to death could have cured cancer? What if the gay teen who committed suicide from bullying could have cured cancer? What if that young girl sold into the sex trade and died from untreated STIs could have cured cancer? What if one of those hundreds of thousands of civilians that have been...

“I am convinced we can find a better solution that keeps society safe, supports the victims of crime and their families and reflects Oregon values,” he wrote. “I refuse to be a part of this compromised and inequitable system any longer; and I will not allow further executions while I am Governor.” Holy hell Oregon. Fucking love you. <3
