Defend Equality...

From Towleroad:
Shepard Fairey, the graphic designer and illustrator who created the iconic images for Obama's campaign, has turned his focus to the current fight for equality in the gay and lesbian community, designing a poster intended specifically for use at this weekend's rallies in California and elsewhere. The image is inspired by the art of a young man named Aaron Harvey. Thanks to the donations of two print sources, posters will be donated for the rally this Saturday at City Hall, which is part of the larger nationwide action called Join the Impact. More info will be forthcoming later today.

Funny Friday...

So here are some videos to start your weekend...

I love this song and wanted to find out the meaning of the lyrics. What I found is burnt in my memory and now all I see is this when I here the song.

Why You Always Need To Pay Attention in Your Job

Bad Ads...

I was on a blog site called 23/6 reading something about Bush (nothing good mind you) and I happened to notice this ad from Google. Not only did this person lose 12 Lbs in two weeks, she went from black to white (pasty white at that). So remember people when you see ads, they are there to make money - from you!

With So Much Hate In The World...

This video has been out for a while, but I finally watched it today. Olbermann lays it all out plain and simple and says something that I have said form many years - With so much hate in the world, how is loving the person that I do so wrong?

And here are people overjoyed at the prospect of just that chance, and that work, just for the hope of having that feeling. With so much hate in the world, with so much meaningless division, and people pitted against people for no good reason, this is what your religion tells you to do? With your experience of life and this world and all its sadnesses, this is what your conscience tells you to do?

With your knowledge that life, with endless vigor, seems to tilt the playing field on which we all live, in favor of unhappiness and hate... this is what your heart tells you to do? You want to sanctify marriage? You want to honor your God and the universal love you believe he represents? Then Spread happiness—this tiny, symbolic, semantical grain of happiness—share it with all those who seek it. Quote me anything from your religious leader or book of choice telling you to stand against this. And then tell me how you can believe both that statement and another statement, another one which reads only "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

We Shall Be Free...

With the last two post being filled with so much hate, I give you...

This ain't comin from no prophet,
Just an ordinary man,
When I close my eyes I see,
The way this world shall be,
When we all walk hand in hand,

When the last child cries for a crust of bread,
When the last man dies for just words that he said,
When there's shelter over the poorest head,
We shall be free,

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin,
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within,
When the skies and the oceans are clean again,
Then we shall be free,

We shall be free,
We shall be free,
So stand straight,
Walk proud,
'Cause we shall be free,

When we're free to love anyone we choose,
When this worlds big enough for all different views,
When we're all free to worship from our own kind of pew,
Then we shall be free,

We shall be free,
We shall be free,
Have a little faith,
Hold out,
'Cause we shall be free,

And when money talks for the very last time,
And nobody walks a step behind,
When there's only one race and that's mankind,
Then we shall be free,

We shall be free,
Listen to what I'm saying to you,
We shall be free,
Cause every night and day I pray it's true,
We shall be free,

We shall be free,
We shall be free,
Stand straight,
Have a little faith,
Walk proud,
Hold out,

We shall be free,
Listen to what I'm sayin' to you,
We shall be free,
Every night and day I pray it's true,
We shall be free,

Idaho, The Place To Be For Racism...

Now I understand where the kids get their hatred. I am referring to the post below this one.

VAY (AP) - A sign erected by a northern Idaho landowner that advertises a "free public hanging" of President-elect Barack Obama and several other political figures is being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service.

Bonner County Sheriff Elaine Savage said she and a Secret Service agent from Spokane, Wash., planned to take a firsthand look at the sign put up by Ken Germana.

"That's a political statement," Germana told the Bonner County Daily Bee. "They can call it whatever they want, a threat or whatever."

The handmade white cardboard sign posted to a tree has the words "FREE PUBLIC HANGING" written in large orange letters. A noose fashioned from a length of rope hangs down the middle of the sign.

The name of the Democratic Illinois senator is written in equally large letters near the bottom of the sign. In smaller letters are the names of Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and civil rights activist and former presidential candidate Al Sharpton.

(Read the rest of the story here)
My God. It amazes me that in 2008 we have so much hatred in this country. These people are really beginning to sound like domestic terrorists. "According to a memo produced by the FBI's Terrorist Research and Analytical Center in 1994, domestic terrorism was defined as 'the unlawful use of force or violence, committed by a group(s) of two or more individuals, against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.'" (Wikipedia)

The FBI should be have this person in custody, but as we saw in the McCain rally's, the verbal threats against ACORN and Obama, that will never happen. How can the color of one's skin produce so much hatred in a country that is supposed to be so far advanced. What I see is a country that is still trying to grow up.

What A Wonderful World...

Where do kids get their ideas? They don't just pull them out of their ass. From what we saw in the McCain campaign, the hatred comes from the parents and their friends. Why is it that these people feel that wanting someone dead is better than the terrorist that we are fighting? These people are no better and to pass this hatred on to their kids just floors me.

REXBURG - Controversial words spoken by kids on a school bus have some Madison County parents concerned.

Matthew Whoolery and his wife aren't blaming the school district for what happened on the bus but they do think all parents need to be careful about what they say and teach their children.

Whoolery and his wife couldn't believe it when their second and third graders got off the bus last week and told them what other students were saying.

"They just hadn't heard anything like this before," said Whoolery. "They were chanting on the bus, 'Assassinate Obama. Assassinate Obama.' Then adding in a name sometimes of a classmate on the bus, 'Assassinate Obama and Kate.'"

Nadar: Is Obama Going To Be Uncle Sam or Uncle Tom...

Now I am a little surprised that Fox News actually defended Obama, but if they didn't they would have had major backlash. Also the journalist that stood up to Nadar is the same that journalist that stood up to "Joe the Plumber". Shepard Smith has become the one redeeming thing about Fox Snooze. Here is how Nadar (who barly made a mark in this election) started his interview:

(Obama's) choice, basically, is whether he's going to be Uncle Sam for the people of this country or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations.
Smith, with a look of disgust, had only one response - "Really?" and then a long pause, "Ralph Nadar" another long pause, "What was that?". The rest is Nadar defending himself and his comments and Smith getting more and more disgusted. It's one for the books. Of course many people in the McCain Campaign will probably start to support this biggot.

At the end of the interview there was this exchange as well:

Smith: I just wonder, if in hindsight, you wished you used a phrase other than Uncle Tom?

Nadar (with some form of sarcasm): Not At All!
