I watched Stein and Johnson debate. I liked Stein better. Here's the video of the debate from YouTube.
Remembering Saint Max on this All Saints' Day: A spooky explanation of why I don't vote from an individualist's perspective.
You're the one who told me to vote, sucker.
As we remember Tiananmen Square today, there are some seriously neat protest movements happening on the ground in North America right now. The Quebec student strikes, Occupy Wall Street, Yo Soy 132. We will reclaim our space from capitalism square by square, park by park, street by street, house by house, mind by mind, and heart by heart. It is those clinging to their things while dwelling in their mansions who need authority and chains-of-command; those of us in the streets have no use for either.
I hate how people try to appeal to Jesus to support their own ideas of who should or should not be candidates for marriage. Jesus' teachings do not so easily lend themselves to those who would rule over their neighbors.
Barack Obama is to marriage as Ron Paul is to abortion.
Bombs are good if NATO drops them; otherwise they are terrorism.
I've updated my pamphlet with an account of my trial. The old version has been included in the first issue of the 'People Not Profit' publication.
Saw this recommendation on the internet.
What a depressing Monday. The most positive comment I've read about yesterday's events was from a redditor, ``I don't know what to say, other than fuck the police, their time will come, and the people will rise.'' I doubt it.
A cynical look at Obama's 'The Life of Julia'
I appeared in criminal court for my jury trial, slept in a park, in the morning I received two guilty verdicts and a non-guilty verdict, loitered at the May Day demonstrations, then slept on the 16th Street Mall to protest Denver's proposed urban camping ban.
My jury trial, stemming from criminal charges brought against me after being arrested at the Occupy Denver camp for peacefully sitting in the park overnight, is on Monday (April 30th). The D.A. has offered me a last-minute plea offer that would give me a very light penalty compared to what he will ask for in the likely even that I'm convicted. This is what I asked my attorney to relate to the D.A. in response.
Dear citizens of the world, you can stop killing each other in the name of safety and enslaving each other in the name of security and prosperity. You're going to die anyway. This is what I believe. Adapted from an online conversation I had recently.
Homosexuality is unnatural, like when two people with different colored skin get married. I know it can be confusing to keep track of what behavior is natural and what is unnatural (supernatural?), but it is all spelled out in the Manual of Natural Behavior for Respectable Mammals you should have received when you were born. If you've lost your copy, then the Family Research Council can help you out.
My experience at the Canadian border.
Contraceptives contribute to an important social good which men should subsidize, though the new HHS mandate appears to be economically meaningless.
Review of Larry Norman's Dylanesque protest song "The Great American Novel"
An overview of the Stop Online Piracy Act and a claim that the entertainment industry's aggressive rent-seeking is more harmful than anyone's pirating.
You can sleep in public in Boulder, but NOT if you use "shelter" like a blanket or tree.
Education is not important. I would like to see more able students drop out of high school.
Allow people to live in polygamous families if that's what they want.
On the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell
I don't like the DREAM Act
