Between this toy (brought to my attention by [livejournal.com profile] morganalilith) and this song I'm in a snarky political mood.

The toy gives me sadistic pleasure.

The most relevant portion of my current music (lack of capitalization due to source):

cuz take away our playstations
and we are a third world nation
under the thumb of some blue blood royal son
who stole the oval office and that phony election
i mean
it don't take a weatherman
to look around and see the weather
jeb said he'd deliver florida, folks
and boy did he ever

and we hold these truths to be self evident:
#1 george w. bush is not president
#2 america is not a true democracy
#3 the media is not fooling me

Forget not the days of old
And recall the stories told
Of the burnings and the screams
Do they ever haunt your dreams?

There was a time when freedom died
It was an age of genocide
The Inquisition at the door
The Church of Rome in a holy war

They broke freedom on the wheel
In the madness of their zeal
In the shadow of their wake
The innocent burning at the stake

Children resist a return to the burning times
People be wise to the power of their lies
Be not fooled as those who were fooled before
Children, oh children, be free, be wild

They came to bring the "good news"
To burn witches, pagans, Jews
Said they were the Shepherd's sheep
Whipped old women through the streets

Then the turning of the tide
From the truth they could not hide
Now the darkest age has passed
The Goddess has returned at last!

In the current political climate, listening to Inkubus Sukkubus is probably imprudent. They're a pagan rock band with a distinct anti-Christian flavor in several tracks (Wake of the Christian Knights comes to mind immediately.)

President Bush's iPod.

"iPod One," as the player has been dubbed, is used by Bush while he pedals around his Texas ranch on a mountain bike, presidential media adviser Mark McKinnon told the newspaper.

Writing in the London Times, Caitlin Moran noted: "No black artists, no gay artists, no world music, only one woman, no genre less than 25 years old, and no Beatles."

"This is basically boomer rock 'n' roll and more recent music out of Nashville made for boomers. It's safe, it's reliable, it's loving. What I mean to say is, it's feel-good music."

If you could upload ONE mp3 from your music collection to President Bush's iPod, what would it be?

Copy the list of the person you ganked it from, and add your own to the bottom. You may also, if you wish, choose to delete one from the list and replace it with your own.

1. "Tuesday Morning" by Melissa Etheridge
2. "Sorrow" by Bad Religion (it was either this or "April 29, 1992" by Sublime; maybe I should've chosen Sublime for the minority angle...)
3. "I Touch Myself" by The Divinyls (puh-leeze... I HAD to)
4. "The Story" by Skittle-sama (and I hope he CHOKES on it)
5. "Cult of Personality" by Living Color (I figure a black rock band with a political bent would be just the thing)

Country, meet Hell and Handbasket.

"Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost," Kennedy says. "As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors -- in short, over every aspect and institution of human society."

Read the whole article.

I'll be deliriously happy if someone can point to proof that this is a joke.

I really should blog my opinions on some political hot buttons. Other than my documented pro same sex marriage stance. :)

I'm slowly getting over The Sick. I'm only mildly congested now, though the sneezing has increased and my nose is hoping that it won't have to get intimate with tissues for a while. Unfortunately it will probably be a few more days before it gets its wish. I'm finding it interesting that the pierced nostril seems to be less prone to stopping up entirely, however it's a good thing I bent the screw a bit long since there is some inflammation. And I'm sure that's more than you ever wanted to know about the workings of my nose.

A bit on the fall of the Greek democracy by [profile] bradhicks, for [personal profile] athelind if he hasn't seen it yet.

You preferred Kerry's statements 89% of the time
You preferred Bush's statements 11% of the time

Voting purely on the issues you should vote Kerry

Who would you vote for if you voted on the issues?

Find out now!

Guess us "Massachusetts Liberals" stick together. Though I wouldn't call Kerry a liberal.

Found this due to a comment by [profile] fenris_lorsrai in [profile] ursulav's journal.

Just something from yesterday's paper that I appreciated.
tephra: A furry liger-ish dragon portrait in profile (Default)
Mitt Romney is just so petty. He's using a law made in 1913 to prevent interracial marriage to invalidate marriages of out of state gay couples. The law, which prevents marriages of couples that could not legally marry in their home state, hasn't been enforced for at least 40 years. Since gay marriage isn't legal in any other state only gay couples that can prove residency in Massachusetts can get married. The Senate has already voted to repeal the 1913 law (it's a rider on the budget), the House still has to vote, and Mitt has already stated his intention to veto the repeal if it gets to him.

His rationalization of using this law? Massachusetts should not force its laws on other states. Hmm, seems to me that the old Blue Laws used to get pretty close to doing that....

The good news, at least 4 towns have ignored Romney's pouting and married people anyway, Provincetown (unsurprisingly, P-town is very gay friendly and has a large gay community), Worcester, Springfield, and Somerville. Romney has already demanded the records from these towns but has not yet invalidated any marriages.

Suck it up Mitt, you and your bigoted ilk lost. Grow up.
