  • Well the self-hating Republican gays are at it again. -- Markus, 06:48:49 05/11/03 Sun
    White House Aides Confer With 200 Gay Republicans

    WASHINGTON, May 9 — At a time of intense debate over the relationship between gays and Republicans, 200 members of the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay group, met today with senior White House officials. The name of Senator Rick Santorum, the Pennsylvania Republican whose impolitic remarks about gays prompted the current debate, did not come up.
    (Gee, there's a surprise! Fucking losers.)

    Instead, participants said, the session was devoted to education, judicial nominees and AIDS.

    "They were substantive and really terrific policy discussions," Patrick Guerriero, the group's executive director, said, adding that no discussion of Mr. Santorum was necessary. "The core of the Republican Party, from the White House to Congress, understands that we're an important part of the American family."

    Yes, self-hating, spineless faggots like you are VERY important to the Republican Party, because you believe every bad thing they VERY PUBLICLY say about you.

  • Is everybody all right from CWRU? -- Markus, 05:55:23 05/11/03 Sun
    CNN - Police said Saturday that the suspected gunman in a seven-hour shooting rampage at Case Western Reserve University late Friday was a former grad student who recently lost a lawsuit against a university employee.

    One man was killed and 10 people were wounded in the attack on the campus.

    The prestigious university is located in a park-like setting of museums, cultural, medical, and educational institutions.

    Biswanath Halder, dressed in camouflage and armed with a machine gun and an automatic pistol, allegedly killed one person, wounded ten others and held police at bay for seven hours Friday.

    The standoff took place inside one of the more idiosyncratic buildings in the country. The $61.7 million Weatherhead School of Management was designed by the architect Frank Gehry and opened for this past school year. It is characterized by the jagged, polished metal surface and odd shapes that are prominent in Mr. Gehry's designs. The shiny, swirling, five-story building, with its large open central atrium, has no right angles and hallways that dip and swerve which complicated the gunman's capture.

    “As the SWAT team entered the building, they were constantly under fire,” Lohn said. “They couldn’t return fire because of the design of the building. They didn’t have a clear shot.”

    Halder wore a bulletproof vest and a wig glued on “a kind of World War II Army helmet” as he walked the halls of Case Western Reserve University’s Peter B. Lewis Building and fired hundreds of rounds, police Chief Edward Lohn said.

    “There’s a trail of blood throughout,” Lohn said. “It was a cat-and-mouse game.”

    Authorities said 93 people were trapped inside the building for hours, hiding in offices, classrooms and closets.

  • Unembedded news and other peculiarities -- Alie, 02:58:55 05/06/03 Tue
    So Dubya declared the main combat in Iraq was over. For once I hope he's right but I doubt it. The frequency of people killed per day has certainly decreased, but the killing and dying will go on, that's for sure. What Dubya explicitely did not declare was the end of the war because this would require by international law (not that he had a lot of consideration for it) that prisoners of war have to be released and sent home. But as Dubya needs them to tell him where those elusive WMDs are that won't happen anytime soon.

    Language can be reveiling, and particularly so when it tries to hide something. Sunday I heard some new (at least for me) Bushspeak: EPOW. An EPOW is an enemy prisoner of war. Huh?? Aren't POWs usually enemies, even without the extra E? Does the E mean there are POWs that are not enemies? Maybe all those people of Arab and Asian origin who are detained by Ashcroft's order without any legal protection? Or is it another crooked logic I just don't get? EPOWs are not POWs so we can keep them in a cage until they rot? Like enemy combattants?

    While the combat has come to an end, the coalition of the killing, in particular the US occupation forces still do not meet their obligation to provide clean water and health care or security for the population. There is a huge cloud of wonderful words and promises, but reality is different. Several humanitarian aid NGOs complain that the US army doesn't let them in. Iraq has not been liberated, it was appropriated by the Bush mob. My opinion may not be popular, but I really hope the UN will keep up the sanctions against, or better, in favor of Iraq because this is the only way the Iraqi people benefit from the oil sales and not the neocon mob and their cronies. The rules for the sanctions should be easily adaptable to the current needs of the country.

    BTW, did Chalabi's vita make their way into the US mainstream media? He's a big-time embezzler and cheated countless people when he bankrupted the bank he ran in Jordan. Small wonder that the neocon mob are so fond of him, he fits right in with the family.

    Yesterday I heard a few minutes of the radio broadcast that Iraq will be treated to in the future. It was exactly the excited and point- and contentless babble I know from US radio and tv, without the ads though. Some US reporter gushed that US journalism is the best of the world and that's what Iraq will get now. Sorry friends, while I agree that Iraq will get it now, US journalism being the best of the world is world class bullshit. Or at least, the kind of journalism Iraq will be treated to is definitely not the small remainder of US journalism that still earns this name.

    Does anybody remember when I said a while ago that I wouldn't be overly surprised if the rescue of Jessica Lynch was just another propaganda stunt? Well, it was. She was a prisoner at some point in the story, and she was lucky to survive, no doubt. Also, she is not responsible for the fudged story. She was "rescued" in plain daylight with night view devices (or however these infrared thingies are called) from an ordinary (not even military) hospital where she was treated for her injuries. Beats me that the rescue squad obviously had their own cameranman with them. They certainly would not have invited one of the embedded journalists to this dangerous rescue action? There are also stories that some of the scenes to be broadcasted on US tv were repeated because they were not convincing enough the first time. I didn't find prove for this last tidbit, but the rest was in the Washington Post (April 15, 2003). I'll see if I can find a copy somewhere because, stupidly, I didn't save it the moment I found it. Now it's available in the pay archives only and I won't pay for more prove about how corrupted the Bushites and their top brass in the military are. They show it for free, every single day.

    Here is one of the more scaring quotes I recently found (form the Critic story below):
    "In fact, a recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found that Americans were happy with Iraq war coverage, though many wanted less news coverage of anti-war activism and fewer TV appearances by former military officers."

    Well, normally I'd say these US Americans deserve Bush as their president and may they be happy with him. But as he doesn't destroy the USA only, he must be stopped at any legal price (impeachment, a life sentence, and using their money to repair at least a little of the damage they've done would be a good point to start). I'm pretty sure though he will not be chased from office in 2004, voter lists and the complete election procedure are all rigged already, and this time not only in Florida (info to follow soon).

    But not all is bad. Yesterday I counted the links to alternative/indy/unembedded media I collected over the last weeks, and there were close to 300 of them. Many are US media, many are indeed among the world's best. If somebody is interested I can clean up my list and post or email it.

    What's following is a somewhat eclectic collection of stories, some news and some more in-depth analyses which start appearing now that the hectic war coverage is gone. I also included some articles that complement Lance's post about this christian secret society some days ago.

  • Need a boat-load of irony, tons of hypocrisy, and a hint of fascim? -- Drew Greyfox, 23:49:41 05/08/03 Thu
    The following proclamation came from the official white house website and is REAL. This is NOT from the Onion or whitehouse.org.

    Loyalty Day, 2003
    By the President of the United States of America
    A Proclamation

    To be an American is not a matter of blood or birth. Our citizens are bound by ideals that represent the hope of all mankind: that all men are created equal, endowed with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. On Loyalty Day, we reaffirm our allegiance to our country and resolve to uphold the vision of our Forefathers.

    Our founding principles have endured, guiding our Nation toward progress and prosperity and allowing the United States to be a leader among nations of the world. Throughout our history, honorable men and women have demonstrated their loyalty to America by making remarkable sacrifices to preserve and protect these values.

    Today, America's men and women in uniform are protecting our Nation, defending the peace of the world, and advancing the cause of liberty. The world has seen again the fine character of our Nation through our military as they fought to protect the innocent and liberate the oppressed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. We are honored by the service of foreign nationals in our Armed Services whose willingness to risk their lives for a country they cannot yet call their own is proof of the loyalty this country inspires. Their service and sacrifice are a testament to their love for America, and our soldiers' honor on and off the battlefield reaffirms our Nation's most deeply held beliefs: that every life counts, and that all humans have an unalienable right to live as free people.

    These values must be imparted to each new generation. Our children need to know that our Nation is a force for good in the world, extending hope and freedom to others. By learning about America's history, achievements, ideas, and heroes, our young citizens will come to understand even more why freedom is worth protecting.

    Last September, I announced several initiatives that will help improve students' knowledge of American history, increase their civic involvement, and deepen their love for our great country. The We the People initiative will encourage the teaching of American history and civic education by providing grants for curriculum development and training seminars. The Our Documents initiative will use the Internet to bring infor-mation about and the text of 100 of America's most important documents from the National Archives to classrooms and com-munities across the country. These initiatives are important, for it is only when our children have an understanding of our past that they will be able to lead the future.

    This Loyalty Day, as we express allegiance to our Nation and its founding ideals, we resolve to ensure that the blessings of liberty endure and extend for generations to come.

    The Congress, by Public Law 85-529, as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as "Loyalty Day," and I ask all Americans to join me in this day of celebration and in reaffirming our allegiance to our Nation.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2003, as Loyalty Day. I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance. I also call upon government officials to display the flag of the United States on all government buildings on Loyalty Day.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-seventh.

  • Comes dancing in.. -- Lance, 08:36:48 05/08/03 Thu
    Yesterday was a big day. I took my last final of the semester and then

    I finished my CD!


    I just got home from the celebration a little while ago. hahaa! And I'm too wired to sleep!!

    It's really exciting but also kinda scary to say, "OK, It's finished" after all this time, work, and money. Now I'm going to just listen to it for about a week while I decide on the artwork and liner notes and decide the order of the songs and then it goes in for mastering, duplication, and all that stuff. It takes about a month turn around time on that.

    I've been looking thru band audition tapes to pick out people to try out for the touring band. My producer and the owners at the studio recommended some different musicians about my age that fit my sound and look. I think the drummer is going to be a girl!

    I signed with a publicist and hired a tour manager. I will be playing gigs up and down the east coast and throughout the midwest - basically from Chicago to NYC and Boston this summer. I can't wait to take these songs out on the road. I love touring and I love being on stage. This summer is going to be GREAT!!

    I've put in 3 years of hard word and thousands of dollars that I earned and paid as I went. I ended up recording 14 original songs and I'm reeeeeeally proud of it. I ACTUALLY FINISHED IT!! This has been a HUGE project.

    No one has heard the entire finished CD. A few people have heard older, rough cut versions of 2 or 3 songs. And a handful of people heard one of the finished songs this week. (well, it was almost finished.)

    One of the girls from the GSA regional Breaking The Silence party sent me an e-mail and said that she had my free, give-away, 3 song demo in her car stereo. Her Mom drove the car and said to her, "I didn't know Coldplay had a new CD." She said, "They don't." And her Mom says, "Then who was I just listening to in the CD player in the car?" HAHA. And she says, "That's the president of a GSA at a local university." Her Mom was like "THAT'S A LOCAL BAND?" and her jaw dropped! haha.

    I sent one song to my online friend, Justin in New York. He's never heard me sing or play anything. With everything I've ever done, from activism to writing to music, Justin has always been my harshest critic. I was expecting him to say something like, "God, Lance, could you possibly be a little more depressing. I'm not quite suicidal yet." HAHA.

    He's always been brutally honest with me, even when he knows it will really piss me off. He told me not to send him my song if I was going to get all upset if he didn't like it. He mostly listens to blues and jazz so this is a different genre for him.

    His reply just made my day! haha.

    He said,

    "wow I dont know what to say..that song is soooo beautiful."

    "its reminiscent of songs that I love so much like colorblind. you sound like a cross between mossiesy and adam duritz...that kind of easy soothing voice thats so full of emotion and can all of a sudden build up to a lot of emotion."

    "its better than 80% of the new music I hear...its amazing Im sending a link over to pete he has a really good friend at I think its sony or epic."

    "you should quit this lawyer bullshit...get your ass to LA and do nothing but bang on doors till someone picks u up..because your a HUGE talent and If u ask me, you're young, u have nothing to lose and u could be a huge star. go for it and get it"

    "Its not like everyone else and their brother recording their own cd's..its really not...its not marginal its not 'just ok' or really good...its brilliant...you're a jerk if u play it safe and dont go for it."

    "The second time I listened to it I thought to myself if I was him? Id back my bags and get on a fucking plane 2 LA...but thats just me."

    "if thats any indication of how you sound..its unbelievable. I mean it. I couldn't believe it was you. Its so beautiful I was speechless."

    I love him! haha! YAYYYYYYY!! Is that awesome or what!! That just MADE my day!

    Thanks to everyone here who have been so supportive and offered encouragement. I want to say, Jordana and Eddi, you guys are the best! Jordana will be sending out information about ordering the CD when it becomes available. I also want to thank Mitchell and Sergio for figuring out how to make songs available on line if I want to let someone listen to something. And I want to thank Alie who is a computer god!

  • Charley Reese -- Drew Greyfox, 23:07:55 05/07/03 Wed
    While surfing for news tonight I stumbled upon the online columns of Charley Reese. I'd never heard of him before tonight, but after reading a few of his columns I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. Here are a few quotes:

    "There is a definitely a whiff of anti-intellectualism — so characteristic of fascist states — in the air. Beware of bully boys who worship the military and scoff at museums and libraries. Beware of people whose limited brains see everyone as either an ally or an enemy. Beware of people who can't tell the difference between patriotism and military conquest. Beware of people so stupid and ignorant that they accept anything and everything the political and the media demagogues tell them."

    "I've begun to think, however, that there is no cure for stupidity and cowardice. Palestinian children will stand in front of a tank and bounce a stone off the turret, but Americans, living in the land of freedom, will say, "Well, I agree with you, but I'm afraid to say anything." Afraid of what? Being slandered? Getting death threats? Take it from me, they don't hurt one bit. Freedom isn't worth a damn if you're afraid to use it."

    "It is really insulting to the veterans of World War II to compare their accomplishments to the short, largely unopposed ride into Baghdad. A campaign that cost 137 lives is hardly comparable to one that cost 400,000 American lives and 55 million lives in total."

    "The truth is, I'm a news junkie, and I've got to get some rehab. This craving for information is frustrating when, despite the communications revolution and proliferation of journalists and outlets, there seem to be fewer and fewer facts actually making their way through to the reader and the viewer. "

    I'll probably be posting some of his future columns as part of my cut and paste news, but if you would like to read them all for yourself the URL is http://reese.king-online.com/Reese_20030507/index.php

  • 4 steps to being happy -- Sergio, 10:34:57 05/06/03 Tue
    Here's an article that I saw on line today that tells things a person can do to feel happier in their day to day life.

    It offers some good advice. I know that some of the people that I care about on line struggle with feelings of isolation and being unhappy. I hope this might help someone realize that there are things they can do to change their lives. They don't HAVE to feel that way.

    If you think you might have clinical depression, talk to your family doctor. They can recommend treatment that can change your life.

    If you're just feeling unhappy, do something about it. This article can help. I'll post it in the reply.

  • Oppose the Flag Burning Amendment: Keep Free Speech Alive! -- Mitchell, 00:09:30 05/07/03 Wed
    In this time of conflict and uncertainty, the right of free speech and the freedom to dissent is being attacked on all sides. One such continuing attempt is a proposed constitutional amendment that would fundamentally alter the First Amendment by giving Congress the power to prohibit the physical "desecration" of the American flag.

    This proposed amendment is part of a larger campaign to chill freedom of dissent and restrict freedom of expression -- it needs to be stopped now!

    Although our fight against the proposed amendment has made headway in recent years, the margins of our victories remain precariously thin. It is critical that we protect the very freedoms that our national symbols represent.

  • Stuff -- James, 11:08:18 05/06/03 Tue
    Has anyone visited www.thenausea.com? I got the link from The Memory Hole... god, it achieved its aim - I was on the point of throwing up after seeing some of its documents. I wouldn't wish the images on anyone (except the politicians), let alone the actions themselves. But I think people should know what their governments are doing in their names - the bits the media don't show us, and thus skew our perspective of what's really happening. I'm sure most people just think of this as having been a 'bloodless' conflict rather than one in which thousands were killed horribly. But if it's not on our TV or in our papers, it doesn't exist. That kid with no arms was as far as they went, and there was such a public outcry in the UK at least, it makes you wonder what would happen if they went completely uncensored. And I wish George Bush and Blair would watch every last scrap. Maybe it would make them reconsider giving the weapons inspectors another chance. My only worry is that Dubya probably jacks off to these images...

    There was one particular video shot from a US gunship circling a village in Afghanistan (an infra red target screen) - you can hear the intercom. They identify a large square building as a mosque ("do not engage"). THen they proceed to pick off all of the vehicles and other buildings. Then they go after the little blips that you can make out as people. WOmen children? Just blips. And they go after every last one. THen when the blips run into the mosque, they take out the mosque.

    There's another set of videos shot of the friendly fire incident in northern Iraq, when Kurdish commanders and several news crews got bombed - including a very well-known war reporter here in the UK. You just first see the group of soldiers walking next to some vehicles, then we see this jet in the distance, and it comes nearer and nearer, and the noise gets louder and louder until it roars past, and then suddenly there's this boom and everything hits the deck. When the cameraman gets up again, there's blood on the lens and a large smoking crater where the group of soldiers was.

    There were no images or reports from all those Iraqi divisions that were 'taken out of commission', so I guess this is the closest we're likely to get to a view of what really happened on the Iraqi side - the sheer Hell.

    I had to go for a walk after seeing some of those images - and I just wondered when I saw people out and about - how many of them really know what went on in Afghanistan and Iraq in their names? Do they even care? Actualy I think they would if they were fed the truth instead of the doctored bullshit that passes for objective reporting.

    On a better note, a while ago I wrote to my MP about Depleted Uranium (DU). THe letter got passed on to the under-secretary for defence, who replied. Apparently there are several committees, etc for testing, and they haven't found any problem yet. But I get a bit worried when he says although there was very little environmental monitoring in Iraq after the first Gulf War , they;re going to start monitoring from now on (?!).

    However, does anyone have any other information that's been suppressed about DU and it's effects? I'd be very interested.

    ps I can't get a single one of the puzzles, Lance - not even the last 'no-brainer' one! Any chance of some clues?!

  • A friendly reminder from the worlds purest christian, Fred Phelps: -- Drew Greyfox, 00:04:29 05/06/03 Tue
    Mr Rogers 'Faggot Who Poisoned Children's Minds'

    (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) Protestors from the Phelps' clan demonstrated at a memorial service on the weekend for Fred Rogers, the longtime host of "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood." Picketers held signs saying "Mr. Rogers is in hell."

    The demonstrators, from the homophobic Fred Phelps Westboro Baptist in Topeka, Kansas, stood in front of Village Baptist church as friends of relatives of Rogers entered the building.

    "He's no better than Matthew Shepherd," said Phelps grandson Sam Phelps-Roper. Members of the clan demonstrated at Shepherd's funeral.

    Phelps-Roper accused Rogers of being gay. "He was a faggot who poisoned children's minds," he said. Rogers was married and had two children. The popular star died last February at the age of 74.

    Other Phelps' clan members demonstrated in North Carolina on the weekend. One group protested at Fort Bragg.

    One demonstrator carrying a sign reading "Thank God for Sept. 11" said Fort Bragg is "harboring homosexuals."

    The group also picketed Baptist churches in the area accusing them of being soft on gays.

    One of the protester's signs said, "Southern Baptist Sin" and had a picture of stickmen performing a gay sex act.

    A protester dragging an American flag yelled, "You're going to hell. Have a nice day" to people as they entered the church parking lot.

  • I saw a puzzle on -- Lance, 01:56:56 05/05/03 Mon
    another board. I thought you guys might like to try it.

    This was originally posted by Cryboy. I don't think he will mind that I reposted it here too (I posted all of mine on his board too.) I will post the others in the reply.


    ok, here's a quiz for you. if you think you know the answer, email it to me, to give other's a chance to solve it. i'll post the answer next week.

    connect the following dots using 4 straight lines only. you can't trace back over a line and lines cannot curve.

    you can only go through each dot once and you can't lift your "pencil" when drawing the lines.

    - I already solved this and sent him a mail! Let's see how many of you can do it.

  • I just want to say... -- Lance, 22:36:14 05/03/03 Sat

    make up sex is sooooo good....the best. haha

    Everyone is always asking me, "How's JJ" or saying "You never talk about JJ" "how's everything with JJ" and I always say "fine. JJ is fine, I'm fine, everything is fine."

    But actually, we've kinda broke up and we've both been seeing other people and everything wasn't so fine. JJ started seeing this one guy and I started going out with a lot of different people and running wild and it wasn't so great.

    But then we decided we missed each other too much, because we really are best friends and something awesome would happen to one of us and we would want to share it or something bad would happen and we would need a shoulder to cry on, so we decided to be friends but no sex and we could date whoever we wanted and we wouldn't get mad. But then, once we decided it was OK to date other people, we didn't date anyone. haha

    We started being "friends" but we were always doing things deliberately that would remind us of some special intimate moment we had shared together, some private joke, or something funny that we had done. There was a LOT of history between us. I would say or do something or the other way around and then there would be this really awkward silence and each of us knew what the other person was thinking about but neither of us would say it.

    We were always out of synch. Sometimes JJ would drop these hints and say "I'm really tired and it's late. Is it OK if I sleep over?" and I would be really mean and say "Sure. You can sleep on the couch. I'm going to bed. I'm tired too. See you in the morning."

    Or if I dropped a few hints JJ would be mean and say things that really hurt to try to get a big reaction out of me, try to piss me off. We had some huge fights, but I would always walk away except this past week JJ said something mean. And it hurt my feelings when it was just supposed to make me mad, so the next day JJ felt bad and was trying to be nice and that's when I reeeeally got pissed off and yelled, "Don't you DARE be nice to me. Goddamit do NOT be sweet to me." and I NEVER yell at JJ.

    So we had a couple days to cool off. And I was burning some CD's for this wedding that I have to DJ and they wanted some songs from the soundtrack to the movie My Best Friend's Wedding, so I was listening to it. And this one song .. "You Don't Know Me" by Jann Arden just hit me.

    You know how it is when every song you hear just takes on meaning. So this one just got to me a little bit and I told JJ to listen to it over the phone.

    The lyrics:

    You give your hand to me
    And then you say hello
    And I can hardly speak
    My heart is beating so
    And anyone can tell
    You think you know me well
    But you don't know me

    No you don't know the one
    Who dreams of you at night
    And longs to kiss your lips
    Longs to hold you tight
    Oh I am just a friend
    That's all I've ever been
    Cause you don't know me

    I never knew the art of making love
    Though my heart aches with love for you
    Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
    (yeah, like I'm shy! haha)
    The chance that you might love me too

    You give your hand to me
    And then you say goodbye
    I watch you walk away
    beside that lucky guy
    (God I was soooooo jealous!)
    Oh you will never know
    The one who loves you so
    Cause you don't know me

    Now if someone played that song for you, wouldn't you just melt????

    All JJ said was, "yeah, that's nice" and I thought, "fuck THIS!" so I said, "Yeah, it's not bad. I have to go. I'll see ya around."

    So this morning I went out running and played a little basketball and when I got back JJ surprised me and was sitting on the steps which is amazing considering it was only 8:30 a.m. haha

    So we went upstairs and we were joking around and really comfortable together just like things were normal. It was really nice. We were laughing about some of the things we used to do, like tell stories to each other, and JJ asked me to tell my favorite story which is a sex fantasy that is really hot and very sexi, and I said "you already know it by heart". But JJ said, "I forgot some of it. Just tell me the story. Please. And then I have to get going."

    So I said, "OK, but you have to be good, and sit quietly, don't interrupt, and no pinching." haha

    So JJ sits down on the floor leaning back against the sofa close to where I'm sitting and we can't see each other's faces. And I tell my favorite fantasy that we've both heard a million times before, and when I'm finished JJ leans way back and looks up at me and quietly says, "we can do that if you want to...." and time just stopped...and we kissed.

    And it was like two starving people. It really was. We really missed each other so bad. We spent the whole day making up for lost time.

    I've never been happier in my life. I have a smile that won't quit. haha.

    Right now I have to go DJ at the club the last set, but after work, I'm going to JJ's. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!

    God, I am sooooooooo happy. haha.

    ....so that's how my day went.

    I guess JJ DOES know me! haha!
