UPDATE: Wisconsin Police Union joins protesters- refuses to remove citizens from Capitol …

attention GOP, and Gov Walker …..

when you’re messin’ with workers and people’s freedom, you’re messin’ with a son of a bitch.

the rally at the state capital of Wisconsin begins in four minutes. you can follow it on twitter at!/AndrewKroll some up to the minute video here…

if we cannot protect the freedom of our own workers in this country then what the hell are we doing in Iraq and Afghanistan?

since the wisconsin police won’t abide by the governor’s order to remove citizens from the capitol now, it would be triple ironic if walker calls out the national guard to remove them, wouldn’t it? and quadruple ironic if the national guard refused to obey walker also.

tea party logic of supporting the continued wars for the freedom of iraq and afghanistan while calling for an end to freedom in the USA is coming back full circle on them like a heat seeking sidewinder.

The men who hate women

By Duganz

I’m intentionally referencing the original title of Steig Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” because it is the most upfront and real statement about the west. We – Europe, Canada, and the US – are societies that hate women. Yes, we let them vote, work and dress as they see fit, but that doesn’t mean we love – or even like – women.

Don’t believe me? Read on.

This week two bits of news really got to me. One:  A boy named Joel Northup said he couldn’t wrestle a girl named Cassy Herkelman because “Wrestling is a combat sport, and at times it gets violent, and you get put in moves and holds that are comprising… I just don’t believe it’s right that a boy and a girl should, in this manner, wrestle.”

This is what Northup’s Dad, a pastor named Jamie, said, “Even though there’s no specific Scripture that addresses wrestling with girls, there is the biblical Christian principle of treating women with respect and dignity… and not looking at them as objects to be defeated on the wrestling mat to be, in some cases, groped or slammed.”

How the fuck is it respectful to not take her on? There is a difference between groping a woman in public, at random, and competing against a strong woman who throws on a singlet and an earguard, and says, “Bring it.” To not do your best against that woman is to call her weak and feeble; it is to say that she is not a man and therefore lacks critical worth as a competitor and person. (Side note: Look at how proud the father of Cassy Herkleman looks in the above photo.) Continue Reading »
