Okay USA...

... you know what? Just elect Romney president already. Re-electing Bush has shown that media circus and best actor/liar/(the one who doesn't come across as intelligent and "elitist") wins out against a harsh reality check and it doesn't really matter if Romney regularly insults the majority of the population so please, just elect him. I have to admit I have this perverse curiousity of wanting to know what will happen. I have to ignore that I have friends and relatives in the US and that there are millions and millions who will suffer if Romney does everything he says he will do but aww, never mind. I would actually expect an improvement of the economy on a superficial level. Corporations and rich people would do better. And by cutting tons of spendings for social care, education, health and stuff the giant debts would probably decrease a bit as well.

I just wouldn't want to be the president four or eight years later when people have figured out that dying because they can't pay the hospital isn't fun and that the tax payer has to pay for it anyway if they don't just want to let the poor people dying in front of the building. They might also notice that decent quality education will get even less accessible for non-rich/super-intelligent people. And all those unwanted children, illegal abortions...  But then, that is something that will get more noticable in the next ten years or so. When the people who messed things up are sitting on the private island.

So yeah, elect Romney. If anything it will be worth the comedy potential for Bill Maher and comedians worldwide. And who knows, Romney might actually have the potential to have the rest of the western world inculding everyone else with exception of Israel to declare war on the USA because, er, lets just say if he did in front of a German labor union what he has done in front of American workers he would be dead by now. The guy is so far removed from reality he simply insults everyone left and right whenever he takes a step out of the US. XD

No, this is not funny. I just can't believe how people can let an TV acting and lying competition have such big influence on such an important election and millions practically forget what Romney said and did before. Amazing.

BAD Internet Laws Heading Your Way

From the flist: 

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.


“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

Stop Uganda's Anti-Gay bill (death penalty)!

Launched: May 9 2011

In 12 hours, the Ugandan Parliament may vote on a brutal new law that carries the death penalty for homosexuality. Thousands of Ugandans could face execution -- just for being gay.

We've helped stop this bill before, and we can do it again. After a massive global outcry last year, Ugandan President Museveni blocked the bill's progress. But political unrest is mounting in Uganda, and religious extremists in Parliament are hoping confusion and violence in the streets will distract the international community from a second push to pass this hate-filled law. We can show them that the world is still watching. If we block the vote for two more days until Parliament closes, the bill will expire forever.

We have no time to lose. Let’s get to one million voices against Uganda's gay death penalty in the next 12 hours -- sign now then spread the word about this campaign!

Go here to sign a petition against this insanity and spread the word!

Me vs. houseflys

ARGH!!! There must have been an explosion in housefly population in the past couple of days. They attack in swarms! And they must be the dumbest beings on earth. Just how do they manage to avoid a wide open door and two huge open windows at all cost and keep on banging their brainless heads into the only closed window?! WHY?! If it is all about flying towards the light then why always the closed window? *wails and tears hair*

To illustrate my feelings, watch this video:

Bwahahahahaha! XD

*fumes* >:/

Those fucking self-rightous AC Milan "fans" who insulted Maldini after his last game for his club after 25 years of loyal service need to get struck by a fucking lighting. >:( This is a fucked up and disgusting ultra attitude of an unknown level. And of a stupidity and injustice that reminds me of a certain group of BVB fans. People who think they are more important than the club or the players.
