Making the Wimminz and girlzes safer

There is a bill in the NC House (HB 562) intended to target transgender people. It doesn't say so on up front, but the bill increases the penalty for second-degree trespass from 20 days maximum to 120 days maximum if the offense occurs "in a multi-occupancy bathroom, shower or changing facility."

So is everyone safe now?

Ice Cream

Marching down

the days before

pushed in dreams

of color...

Kindred of the poor

blessed in time and place

barefooted to cities of the night

taking flight

carrying Mother’s anger

and hating


a yoke of time, puritanical

Lifted, somewhat with age

infirmity at the door

wishing more delights

Syria, Tulsi Gabbard, Progressives, and U.S. Imperialism

Some thoughts on America's attack on Syria.

-Trump/America's attack killed six children. Have you read or listened to anyone who mentioned that? Lamented about that? Maybe it wasn't enough, maybe it has to be fifty kids. Or 500,000. How about a million? Do you know what it's like to have your child killed? Not by a bomb, but by lies?

The Time is Right for Fighting in the Streets

File this in the WTF department. An already overcrowded pigeon hole earns another entry. Before posting this, what the heck are we doing with labeling frenzy? Identity politics to the max. Alt-Right, Anti-Fa, centrist, neoLiberal, NeoConservative, Progressive, Regressive, Depressive. Where does it end? Are we c99ers Alt-Left, marginalized Free-thinkers, burned-out Berners? Can't tell the players without the labels.

You Tube Censorship of Progressive & Independent Media, Plus Why I have a New You Tube Channel

Unlike many progressive sites on You Tube, I didn't lose any ad revenue from my videos posted there in this recent censorship effort by TPTB, because I never allowed You Tube ads to run on my YouTube channel. But I did have to create a new one called Steven D Speaks.

Tulsi strikes again

Bernie, still gotta love him, started a movement going, even though he has chickened out in pursuing it, which has encouraged rising stars such as Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner, Tim Canova and revitalized people like Alan Grayson and Jeff Merkley. My favorite, bar none, the real deal, the real straight shooter, the one with guts, is Tulsi Gabbard.

The Empire Strikes Back… and it's a foul ball!

The backstory:

While the Syrian government surrendered their chemical weapon stockpiles for destruction in 2014, evidence indicates that rebel groups in Syria have ramped up their own supplies of the deadly weapons and have not hesitated to deploy them in combat. In November 2016, the New York Times acknowledged that ISIS, alone, had used chemical arms at least 52 times in Syria and Iraq.

The 'Peace Movement' still alive and well. Maybe it's you that's missing?

Love this place. Truth reigns. For the most part, anyway. But still seeing here and there 'the peace movement has been missing for the last 8 years', 'where is the peace movement ?, but you know, sorry, but hey, fck you. Where are you? The peace movement has continued on from the 60's. Sorry if you left it. Sorry if you never joined. Sorry if you are ignorant of it's workings.

Judge Andre Davis adds a name to an illustrious pantheon

Two days ago the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the preliminary injunction entered by the court in June, 2016. That injunction allowed Gavin Grimm to use the boys bathroom, but since SCOTUS' action sending the issue back to the Circuit and Gavin's imminent graduation, the case has become "mootish" (except for the damages or if Gavin returns to the school as an alum).

Democrats Stop Being Such Effing Hypocrites: Updated

Where have you been the last eight years?

While candidate Obama came to office pledging to end George W Bush’s wars, he leaves office having been at war longer than any president in US history. He is also the only president to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.

(And it begins:) Hillary Clinton says potential collusion between Trump camp and Russia should be probed

Hahahaha. Freaking FINALLY! The Clinton Creature is back and ready for action. The lying sack of shit who, along with her little helpers and David Brock, were the arrogant corrupt shits who cheated themselves right into the 'Democratic' Party nomination.

Does she think we'll forget or think Trump is so bad that we'll forgive? I never will.
