I did a bunch of blog reading last weekend, which means you are about to get link bombed. Sorry.
So pissed that the Ríos Montt verdict was thrown out. Silly me for having a little bit of hope for the injustice system.
You have probably been following the protests outside the DOJ. Best part – The foreclosed homeowners who got arrested gave bank execs names instead of their own.
I doubt you missed this, but Why isn’t New Orleans Mother’s Day parade shooting a ‘national tragedy’?
Does anyone really doubt that the government is spying on journalists more than we know? In related news, Antiwar.com is suing the FBI.
Continuing the discussion on my post about gifted classes, this article about the connection between race and IQ is worth reading. I know, CATO. What can I say. Sometimes they are ok.
A Florida teen is being prosecuted for statutory rape. Her parents claim it is because she is a lesbian and the other girls parents are homophobic. Maybe. But can all the people sending this around in LGBTQI circles please remember that this shit happens all the time – often to teenage dudes whose girlfriend’s parents think their daughters should have a chastity belt. Shame that this girl and so many others will end up on a sex offender list, like this nine year old.
And if wrongfully convicted and later exonerated of some crime, good luck getting that record expunged and being able to get a job.
So much anarchist related news this last month. It seems that some of it was spurred by the Boston bombing. Maybe Boston PD are embarrassed that they spent their time spying on occupiers instead of investigating real shit.
Harry Reid was apparently given some congressional homework to learn all about the evils of anarchists. Sad that the American Conservative has the most reasonable story on anarchists I read this weekend.
What’s worse? condescending liberals who don’t know fuckall about about anarchism or support from Lou Dobbs?
Spanish anarchists were arrested for “praising terrorism.”
I’m going to bet that 50% of the fire setters were undercover cops and the other 50% grew up in a cushy suburb. Any takers.
All this horseshit around DGR and Derrick Jensen. Wow.
I don’t approve of sending explosives through the mail. But I do have to admire the creativity behind sending explosive sex toys to Catholic leaders.
Maybe all we anarchists really need are more mascots.
Can we please stop pretending that only privileged college kids were against the Vietnam war?
We will know the world is getting somewhere when people would rather have their kids be porn stars then bankers. Until then, we can only laugh at the irony of banks refusing to let sex workers have accounts with them on moral grounds.
And speaking of asshole bankers, how about foreclosing on someone for making their payments too early.
How do Finnish kids excel without rote learning and standardized testing? Hint – autonomy, collaboration, less-hierarchy…
I can’t believe Disney had the cojones to try and trademark Dia de los Muertos.
Liked this TED video about guerilla gardener Ron Finley.
Christ, Chris Matthews is an asshole. How do people watch news shows?
Creepy student films girl in shower. He gets away, but the police catch him by tracking his student ID card. I am equally creeped out by the second part. Cause let us imagine for a second that it is this cop who can track you like that.
Last week it was kitten sex. This week the cops are called for frog sex.
