cutterkayoss @ : up and running
living with mom has many perks: lots of window space for my orchids, an occasional dog-sitter, hesitant taste-tester, and of course the one i was getting to: high-speed internet! with the massive blackouts in the city i work in ( freaky friday the 13th blizzard
), i needed something to amuse me for the next week or so. then i remembered: i created a livejournal community! gosh! i hope all of y'all that are members still maybe have a glimmer of hope for this community... we'll see. in all this meandering talk i've tried coming up with a topic, but it's failing me. oh! i've got it. let's talk about the worst jobs we've worked. wether the boss was hideous or you had to do things you really didn't want to, let's gripe about it.

Yo, I'm Rainer from New Orleans and all that introductory jazz...
I thought this community looked really cool so I joined.
To get some discussion going, what are some really good scams I can pull off? I really hate working, and I don't have a job, but then again I'm still in high school and I still live with my mom so It's not totally necessary. But, it'd be nice to get some free extra cash.

astringent @ : Democracy Now!
Amy Goodman, the host and executive producer of DemocracyNow! (independent radioshow--www.democracynow.org), came and spoke at the NAU campus tonight about her collaborative book "The Exception to the Rulers," the Pacifica media network, DemocracyNow!, the importance of independent resources (bookstores, radio stations, media, etc. and historical understanding and so on. If you support these bad asses, you should bring DemocracyNow! to your nearby communities. Help expand the consciousness of the masses, within and without yourself.
She touched upon the diminishing amount of independent bookstores; a few years ago, there was a total of around 4000 independent bookstores in the US which has since decreased to around 1200. What can I say other than support independent bookstores; they support you.
I bring this up because I recognize the lack of projected communal mindset within the mass; I bring this up because I want to share common interest and raise awareness to what I feel is of high importance: equality. From the achievement of equality surfaces the words, the tortures, the accomplishments, the names, the histories/herstories, of the previously silenced and 'nonexistent.
It so completely important to me that wimmyn, such as Amy Goodman, are recognized as intelligent, notable figures not only because of our herstory, but because of our current administration... the administration that is dilligently pushing to remove a wimmyn's right to choose to have a safe, legal abortion. How is it that a patriarchal law is always working its way in and out of our fucking wombs?..
check out www.naral.org for info on wimmyn's rights around the world... and remember folks: "think for yourslef, question authority."

gentlekilling @ :
I think this is an important idea that could have an impact if we all promote it, and forward it widely. It is easy enough to implement with a little advance planning. And it's an action that's an inaction -- instead of taking your time it will give you time. And a breather from spending. Just leave your money at home that day. And ask everyone you know to do the same.
Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Damn Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Dime Day" those who oppose what is happening in our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer spending.
During "Not One Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not one dime for gasoline. Not one dime for necessities or for impulse purchases.? Not one dime for anything for 24 hours.
On "Not One Dime Day," please boycott Wal-Mart, Kmart and Target.
Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store. Please don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter).
For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail economy down.
The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq is immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and that it is their responsibility to stop it.
"Not One Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for the people of the United States of America, not for the international corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The politicians put the troops in harm's way.
Now 1,200 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000 Iraqis have died. The politicians owe our troops a plan -- a way to come home.
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing agenda to rant about. On "Not One Dime Day" you take action by doing nothing.
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one dime, to remind our religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility to end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people.
Please share this message with as many people as possible...email, LJ, AIM lists, family, word of mouth...Whatever way possible.

shadesoblique @ : savor the present
after a month of seeing j.j. im trying to evaluate the course were on since things are starting to build even though i already know nothing will be produced yet the energy is restless at work. i ended a needy relationship early this yr and do not want another so getting involved with a guy who has a girlfriend means less demand of my attention. however during the whole month of dec we havent seen each other maybe 5 days drawn intensely by our personalities despite the insecurites. we wont express feelings about one another to avoid clouding the space where we are secure and the result of noncommunication are deep stares searching for an answer. thinking what i was also thinking he admitted that even if he wasnt with his gf that i would get tired of him, he would trip on me and vice versa, and he would cheat on me and vice versa. from the 1st time meeting j.j. i felt powerfully comfortable and appreciate this the most when with him, i can do whatever i want and not be embarrased. we have an awesome connection still im not sure what to see him as; ive kept my guyfriend strictly boyz and nothing more, and those im imtimate with are my ball n chains but j.j. is neither. bored out of my mind before with my boyfriend you'd think this would be bliss and it is, a shady area in which i cant see where im going...discomforting. nothing regarding myself happens without my allowing it, my awareness is the opposite of his poor gf choosing to be disillusioned by ignoring his unfaithfulness. well thats her choice, i choose infactuation, thrilling encounters and a stranger's seduction. all that doesnt include a ring on my finger as mrs housewife who's husband cheats on me. i know where this affair is headed and thats just enough time before seeking whats next. it tool me a few years to figure it out but there is no other way...nonsubmissive.

Just some advice for anyone else that makes homemade wine (or wants the recipe or tips):
Don't drink it unless you are completely sure its finished. Otherwise it will give you a fucking headache from hell.
Other than that- Party.
gentlekilling @ : Bush signs anit-abortion law
Without much fanfare and media attention, yesterday President Bush signed into law the Weldon Amendment, or so-called "Abortion Non-Discrimination Act" (ANDA). This latest attack on women's rights allows institutions to refuse to comply with existing or future laws that protect women's access to abortion services. It also allows health care institutions to refuse to give women full information about all of their reproductive health options.
In spite of its name, ANDA does not protect women seeking abortion services from discrimination. In fact, it discriminates against them. It is a wide-sweeping refusal clause that will have a deeply negative impact on women's ability to access abortion information and services.
The vast majority of Americans oppose allowing health care entities to deny services to women, even if those entities base their refusal on moral or religious grounds.
ANDA does not even require moral or religious grounds — health care entities can refuse to provide abortion or information services for any reason, and there isn't a thing that the local, state, or federal government can do about it. The whims of corporate entities will be able to trump the conscience and medical needs of women nationwide.

shadesoblique @ : he's the anti-mother
(hey thanks cutter)
the argument between my mom and i fits perfectly here; she is very religious and believes everything written in the bible. somehow we started talking about how women shouldnt be ministers (despite how well they teach) cuz we arent supposed to be over men. O really now so the bible wants females to accept being below males. her next statement was no better saying man is to follow God and we are to follow man, following God. i dont understand how she and other women are fine with this or allow this to be the standard. she doesnt understand me either, how careless i am about my appearance and pretending i want to be alone for the rest of my life. its simple i tell her, im a person just as he and i will have an active role just as he. equality is pretty simple but hard for both sexes to grasp. anyone who comes into contact with me knows right away that u cant tell me what to do and im proud to be strong and confident when once i wasnt and felt like i needed someone to feel whole. now i know better when man and woman join they are one, meaning each cant be whole and thats scary water to me. i know relationships are various and hard to define but im saying fuck the testament ages. when God created woman from man, he might as well left eve a rib bone for adam to carry around since we'd obviously be attracted to evil and God became bitter at us and commanded we do whatever adam told us to. i want to believe in something but im not falling for BULLSHIT, u cannot convince me im an extension of a man and will become the extension of my mother. i can be happy living alone, having a career, and establishing myself by myself. how about you?

Hey, looks like no one's really been using this community lately, which is a shame.
I don't know if this even helps, but I've been trying to look up alternate forms of contraception.
So far, effective herbs include: Wild Yam, Pomegranate seeds, Neem Oil, and Queen Anne's Lace seeds. While not 100% effective, depending on which method you choose, they can really help. Most are more effective when you're ovulating, which is good.
If anyone is interested in other herbal contraceptives, www.sisterzeus.com/hcontra.htm is pretty helpful.
Its going to get harder and harder to access abortion information with the fascists we call our president and the Republican Party. The "advances" they hope to make can stunt the progresses made in abortions/contraception/etc... by thirty fucking years. No joke. If any of this means anything to you, I know many people in this area interested in doing something about it. Contact me if you are as well. Plus I have the recipe for inducing menstruation if anyone is interested in that as well.
Let me know what you guys think:

what are your opinions on magazines such as Bust, Bitch, etc.?
I bought myself copies of both that I listed, and I found them rather interesting but I'm still not too sure about them. They definitly "speak to me" in some aspects, but I don't find myself really likeing them. I'm being vauge, I know, but that's the best I can do after reading only one issue of each.

gentlekilling @ : 12 Reasons Homosexuals Should Never Be Allowed to Get Married
1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control.
2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can't legally get married because the world needs more children.
3. Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.
5. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are property, blacks can't marry whites, and divorce is illegal.
6. Gay marriage should be decided by people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.
7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
10. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.
11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to things like cars or longer life spans.
12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages for gays and lesbians will

Though today sees no rest for the pained,
the end of life remains.
Though today sees no let up for the way our lives have always stayed the same
Though we waste each day
for the sake of a tomorrow
another day away
For no reason
except to save our breath
To stand again and raise the hammer over our heads.
We pray for the promises to be kept, the ones established long before god’s long rest.
And we watch the sun set once again with the faith
That judgment will soon relieve our place.
receives each of us blindly, and that
Justice of Judgment
Is 5000 years late, and
each new death
a blank face.
But even in death
we can hold hands
and assure we finish our fate,
we insure that each new act against us is met with the revenant faces of billions of dead,
And that the gate infinitely bestowed upon our frames
Collapses in a graceless way
at the uncovered fact of those without shame,
Who strike at us each day, through our pain, in order to take our efforts and ensure their own gain.
To them, now
that they hold too much faith in the grave,
they hold too much faith in our own faith in banal myths they use to turn our rage into slave,
that the dead are not altogether powerless, and that beyond a worldly death
and that they’ll have to face our bonds that back the new promise, that they’ll have to live with our minds lest we shame them beyond oblivion to eternally stare
into their own twisted faces
as our sun rises
with a gift of the promise

loveandanarchy @ :
All this talk of "gay marriage" is getting me all uncomforable.
See, I just don't think marriage is a good thing for anybody, let alone queers. So when there are so many good people putting so much energy into something like this, I feel like the queer community is avoiding the bigger picture.
The system is messed up, and we don't need to try to fit into it so we can exclude people as well, we should be trying to destroy the system, destroy the power that gives that group the right to exclude us!
P.S. Hi, this is my first post after a long while of lurking.

"Conservatives, liberals and feminists are equally guilty of a fatal misreading of human nature."
Cammile Paglia said something like that once.
I agree with that in a lot of ways. No political agenda satisfies me. Everything is problematic. The only thing thing thats ever liberated me is moderation of dissent through informed madness. (which has become a motto of mine) I believe our species fatally flawed and beyond salvation a priore
, but not beyond it in agency.
The question of cultural resistance and political protest deafens me. im exhausted.
I've been so active for so long: with little effect. An unelected president wages a war sold to an illiterate nation off thinly vieled lies: against the will of the global community.
I dont know what more evidence you need to throw up your arms in resignation, move to Nova Scotia and live with Wolves.
Maybe you guys can light my fire again.
be warned though: i've got an unlikely arrangment of political views so dont expect me to agree with everything liberal.

affluence and wealth.
i believe it do be the MOST attributable factor to the misery and inequality of the earth. more so than sexism, racism, facism, capitalism, and any other ism you can think of currently existing in the western world.
do you agree, and why? or why not...
