Go Away Hillary!…Go Away!…


Date: April 14, 2015

01) Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Takes Off

We don’t need another big business shill in the white house.

…Hell…they gave her over two billion dollars, to fund her campaign…Do we need any more reason, to reject her?

I offer this link…because I was listening to this while driving somewhere…and I found some of the critical comments about Hillary, to be relevant.

“Doctors” In Another Field Who Want to Advise Us All…


Date: April 19, 2015

01) Dr. Oz Is Lying To You And Columbia University Wants Him Gone


What they are talking about here…good grief!…

…We have seen this same old problem recycle for years, with the Laura Schlessingers and Judith Reismans of this world…

…People who are honestly certified in some area of expertise, having a doctorate…deciding that their moral outrage over social issues makes them justified, in deceptively putting themselves over as some form of “expert” in fields unrelated to the field they became a doctor in.

This never stops them from prominently, and repeatedly, telling you that they are a doctor…leaving you with the strongly suggested impression, that they are a deep expert in the field on which they speak.

…Yeah, fine…sometimes they go to a diploma mill, and take a few courses so they can hang a certificate on their wall…But seriously, you’d have to be a fool not to understand they are frauds…They’re people exploiting their past status, in scummy ways…because they know it will allow them to impress and manipulate people…most of whom won’t do any digging into their past…most of whom will never question them, or their motives.

Very commonly…they turn out to be complete zealots, who’s words and integrity are corrupted…by the simple fact that they cannot be objective, honest or fair.

How do anarchists see ‘pedophilia’?…


Date: April 19, 2015

01) How do anarchists see ‘pedophilia’?

02) Interesting Footnote

“I would speculate that some anarchistic groups have discussed how they would handle this issue (love/sex between children and adults) if an anarchistic society would come.”

…When there was a podcast being produced by one of our own, and a lively community of us evolved in the blogosphere…an anarchist who calls himself VolodyA! took note of us.

A very kind and decent person…very supportive, in fact. He even took copies of my blog posts, and uploaded them into FreeNet…for preservation.

He did [and still does, I believe] a podcast of his own…

03) Echo of Freedom

This is the page where episodes begin, and you can visit more newer pages, to check out other episodes…Some comments of this nature are in episodes, where you wont be able to tell from the episode title.

Early on, he addressed the plight of “pedophiles” a handful of times…Not sure if he’s returned to the issue in more recent years.

Point is…there is not a total absence of support for us, within the anarchist movement.

Some Reality about “Triggers”…


Date: April 17, 2015

01) Trigger warnings demean feminism. Here’s why.


I haven’t really written or talked about it a whole lot, but this issue has increasingly been on my mind…Mostly because, as Christina points out, it has become a tool for imposing hostility against open thought and expression.

…It’s even been used against me, amidst an effort to smear my character…

It’s probably a little known fact, that over a decade and a half ago…I went through a phase where I was writing short masturbation stories…They were mostly in the vein of reflective, young homoerotic stories…the kind you might have found in gay magazines, years ago.

I would not call myself great at this endeavor…but it was fun…it served an important need…and I was offering something that was useful, to people who lacked other outlets. It was a gift to the wider community, to help them cope…to ease and enhance their life, a bit.

They mostly existed in a singular collection…a series, which added up the narration of an over the top sex romp, between three boys…Nothing about this was meant to be taken seriously…It was submitted and published on two websites, specializing in just exactly this thing…masturbation stories…It was all buried several layers deep, on a website that forced you to knowingly self elect to see it…You’d have to go hunting around for this specific type of story, and stumble upon it…It wasn’t something that would just show up in a search engine.

…You can imagine my amusement, when something like a decade later…some bozos [at Perverted Justice] decided to publish a direct link to this story, on a webpage which was supposedly an expose of me…accompanied by a “trigger” warning…As in, they expected that some percentage of people would spaz out, should they click the link and encounter my rather lighthearted and amusing story.

…It is just plain nuts, the degree to which this “trigger” superstition has been taken…I know some people are sensitive…but good grief!…Honestly?…That is just outright stupid.

It has become even more incredulous…because after Perverted Justice dropped the website, and quietly distanced itself from what it had done…one of the idiots behind creating it, spent years getting kicked off of numerous hosts [for terms of service violations, because the website is online harassment, stalking and making tangible terrorist threats against people…and it’s an outright smear campaign of the worst sort]…all along, publishing a link to my story with a “trigger” warning…

…Today is the first time I’ve even acknowledged my porn writing past, in many years…I’ve not linked to that story on a public website, ever [it was against the rules of the websites to do so, anyway…They wanted every visitor to read and agree to the terms of service, which included acknowledgement that they willfully intended to access such content]. I only shared it for a short window of time, through private and personal venues [like IRC chat]…So, it’s a trivial piece of my deep past…which I am proud of, for the record…I hope my creativity served many people well…

…But for all this time I’ve not even acknowledged the existence of these stories…that deranged bozo has been, I believe, the singular and most prominent advertiser and promoter of my porn stories…all the while being “so concerned” about the possibility of “traumatizing” people, by exposing them to my stories.

…Yeah…”triggers”…Uh huh…

Of course…this person was just trying to rile up narrow minded people, who are already prone to become outraged at anything even remotely taboo…but this experience has always stuck with me, and made me realize just how watered down, crazy and meaningless the term “[mental] triggers” has become.

I don’t see the concept of “triggers” as being entirely invalid, because people can associate all sorts of things with a deep, personal trauma…But people have gone absolutely crazy, pro-actively associating this term with all manner of things.

Is my silly, whimsical story, about happy, enthusiastic boys having lots of happy sex, really going to “trigger” anyone into anything at all [other than arousal and orgasm]?

People who are that hyper sensitive, simply need to not seek such content out…Problem solved…

…though not in a world, where we have bozo’s who go out of their way to create problems.

There is a ton of problems with the concept of “triggers”, especially as it is being used today.

Who is harassing Anita Sarkeesian?…

……

01) Who is harassing Anita Sarkeesian?

02) Who is Harassing Anita Sarkeesian?


“Anita Sarkeesian is constantly talking about harassment and threats, but who is sending them to her, and why?”

People game, to forget about social politics and life for a while. Anita pushes those things into gaming.

I think this is largely why she is so unwelcomed, by the gaming community…That, and she appears to be a parasitic fraud.

Nobody in the gaming community asked her to invade and alter their world…She just went and decided to do it.

And messing with people’s private entertainment, over an invented “problem”?

She appears to be nothing more than an opportunist, latching herself onto a trivial social issue, which she can spin and sell to some fringe feminist group…and incredulously, she has made a ton of money off of this.

A person who doesn’t appear to even much care about video games, trying to pass herself off as some sort of “expert” on social video game issues?…and she’s been exposed, for using deception as well…

I for one, would be mighty happy if I had never known who she was…

…This whole situation comes off as utterly mindless.

Study: Majority Receiving Public Assistance Are Working Poor…


Date: April 14, 2015

01) Study: Majority Receiving Public Assistance Are Working Poor

02) Read the Study

“A study out today finds nearly three-quarters of people who receive public assistance benefits from the government belong to a working family.

The report from University of California, Berkeley, says low-wage jobs have left federal and state governments holding the tab for higher medicaid, food stamp and child subsidy payouts. Researchers say the cost to taxpayers is now $153 billion a year.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks to Ken Jacobs, chair of the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education, about the recent study and what it means for federal aid and low-wage workers.”

Not much of a surprise here…

…And just think…if they start slashing the assistance programs, it wont honestly be the “welfare royalty” amongst us which suffers the major brunt of it…It will be people who are out there, actually trying to survive.

Ex-Blackwater Guards Sentenced to Prison in 2007 Killings of Iraqi Civilians…


Date: April 14, 2015

…Ex-Blackwater Guards Sentenced to Prison in 2007 Killings of Iraqi Civilians…

What we have learned today…is that Blackwater employees cannot legally create casualties of war…And I, for one, applaud this.

Blackwater created a situation for itself…where it existed in a legally fuzzy arena…They should have known better, than to think it would not come back to bite them.

Hey…I understand that they were functioning in a theater of war…and that they unwittingly found themselves in a chaotic situation…But here is the thing…

…They are contracted civilians…not active soldiers in theater to fight a war, because they’ve been sent their by the commander in chief…Blackwater, being civilian contractors, do not get the same legal protections as U.S. soldiers…and they shouldn’t.

They chose to be there as civilians…Hence, they are required to legally behave as such.

It was really crazy, that they were even over there in the first place…It was highly controversial, to say the least. That they did not seem to really answer to anyone, was straight up alarming.

People have been talking for years…how the actions of Blackwater were endangering our soldiers, and giving us a bad reputation.

…And atrocities against the Iraqis [or other civilians], have never been acceptable…

A lot of people may have shown up at the trial, to support these four men…and I want to say, they might be decent enough in other areas of their lives…

…But decent people do not sign up for any line of work, the likes of which Blackwater offered.

I have no sympathy for these men…They chose this path…It led them to murder [or at least manslaughter] innocent civilians…It really is as simple as that.

…Don’t want to lay in that bed?…Then don’t join violent rogue businesses, which believe themselves to be above the law.
