Sometimes it’s hard to decide which is worse—when they refuse to look at you because they don’t want to acknowledge your existence, your presence, in what they believe is a world that should belong only to them; or when they do look at you, and look at you with the purpose of sending the message that you don’t belong here and that you’re an intruder who better watch his fucking step. One might think, at first, that invisibility is always preferable, because it precludes the possibility that acts of violence may be taken against you.

But there’s a part of me that prefers for them to see me, even if it’s just to glare at me, to give me the look that says You ain’t one of us, motherfucker. Because even though there’s real danger here—these are people who believe in their guns and who think violence is a good thing—there’s something less existentially distressing in being threatened than in being invisible, which just occurred again to me recently.

Ha Ha! Look at the crappy targeting that Facebook did with this Ken Cuccinelli ad. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving pretentious prick.
Except for maybe Rick Santorum, but he’s done as a political entity.

It's assholes like these that keep me up at night

I’ve got sleep apnea. That means that I use a CPAP machine to sleep. Using the CPAP machine gives me constant, 24/7/365 tinnitus. Add the tinnitus to ADHD, and I have too much in my head to let me sleep. So I listen to talk at night. BBC 4, BBC 4 Extra and Radio Australia usually. Sometimes the stories about refugees from Asia trying to make it by boat to Australia upset me. There are Aussies who are just as xenophobic and provincial as those here in ‘Muricah who are all about keeping Mexico out of the USA. Then I listen to podcasts.

I just happened to wake up in the middle of the night to pee. So I was thinking about what I was listening to. This episode of This American Life had a benign seeming title, This Week. Some of the segments are about…

  • People living under surveillance from the NSA. they were defense attorneys for detainees at Guantanamo Bay
  • A U.S. reporter covering what ever it is that look like trials at Gitmo of detainees
  • A great science teacher in Fairfax County, VA who is quitting his job because he can’t take having to work as a teacher then do the fund raising that was needed to save his position.
  • Florida is accelerating it’s execution process.

These assholes. These assholes invading our privacy for no valid reason that they’ll give us. These assholes who won’t give people the same justice that they live with. These assholes who make more money than just about anybody else in the nation who won’t get their county to pay for the best primary school science teacher in the country. These assholes in Tallahassee who can’t run courts right want to use other peoples bodies to build their careers.

These assholes doing these things so awful that someone thinks that the story about their fucked up actions are put on the radio. These assholes keep me up at night while my family can sleep.

Call the guy who hit the driver:
Ed Dahlberg, President
Emerald Aviation, Inc.
9998 Wakeman Dr
Manassas, VA 20110‎
(703) 361-3330

I just called the number: it leads straight to Dahlberg’s voice mail right now (it was a steady busy signal right after the incident). Give Ed a jingle to tell him what you think.

Vigorously support women's rights by fully engaging in efforts to ratify the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government

There are currently 35 states that have ratified the ERA and legal analysis suggests we may need just three more states for women to have equal rights under our Constitution. We ask you to support our efforts nationwide, particularly in the states that have not yet ratified the ERA: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, N. Carolina, Oklahoma, S. Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. We also ask you to place your full support behind Congressional legislation to eliminate deadlines on the original 1972 ERA. It is time our Constitution protects the rights of women, and women need and deserve active participation in ERA advocacy from the White House.
