So....I was reading in my school's paper about the amount of student loans people have. Did you know that the average student leaves with $17,000 dollars in loan debt? And that number's only going to increase because of the 11.9 BILLION dollar cut to education funding. Not only does it mean less "free" money, and more loans....but it means that the money WE AS STUDENTS ARE ENTITLED TO....is going to provide more tax breaks for the wealthy.

I don't know about anyone else, but this makes me angry. Bush claims to support education, Congress claims to support education; but when it comes time to cut funding from some part of the budget, 99% of the time, it's EDUCATION that loses. I could be completely off my rocker, but that seems like a SERIOUS contradiction. I'd actually be less angered if Bush just came out and said he didn't support education before making cuts to the budget, instead of claiming to support it and THEN making cuts.

Bush pisses me off, really.

weresolipsists: Operation Home for the Holidays

Hi! I'm writing to let you know about a little anti-war performance I did
with my family over Thanksgiving weekend. I heard about this lady on the
radio doing it (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5021524)
and we copied it.

We took toy soldiers and put a label on them that says "bring me home from
Iraq for the holidays" and we placed them all over stores -- in Best Buy and
the supermarket - and then customers or employees find them on top of
granola bars or iPods, etc.

The idea is to confront consumers for a brief moment -- to ask them to think
about Bush's approach (failure!) and what they're going to do about it. It
also offers an encouragement to other activists, citizens of conscience, and
military families, in that someone is doing something to bring soldiers
home!

So, it's extremely easy (and relatively cheap) to do! Look for toy soldiers
at your local dollar, toy, or department store, glue them on to some paper,
and write/print "Bring Me Home from Iraq for the Holidays," then walk around
stores and leave them (in)conspicuously on shelves!

We're psyched, we wanna get it in blogs and news media and work a snowball
effect and have this protest-performance-action sweep the nation, and be the
next Cindy Sheehan anti-war strategy.

I've started a blog to keep track of where these are popping up. Please
send in pictures of actions you've done (or seen):
http://homefortheholidaysaction.blogspot.com/.

in peace & solidarity,
"Femme Egale"

Post this in your own journal if you wish, but leave a note here and give me your best suggestions for a caption to this picture. I have a few more, but I'll wait until I get some responses to post them.

juliesmagicmoon: Offer Me Constructive Suggestions on My Letter to The DNC.

I'm thinking of submitting letters to the editor for The Seattle Times, Seattle PI, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, Mother Jones, Ms., Utne and maybe six or seven other nationally syndicated papers. Essentially, I'll be picking apart the hypocrisy of the Republican's posturing on life and morality issues, while at the same time addressing the Democrats for being spineless on the same by allowing Republicans and conservative owned press to define the nature of political discourse for the last 3 decades. It will need some work because I want to be clear and articulate, but short enough that it won't be cut and potentially lose meaning.

While talking with a friend about the idea, he offered some helpful suggestions, and even recommended that I send a longer letter to Howard Dean, which I will post here later. That one won't be quite as critical, but will have some genuine critiques and offer what I hope will be some constructive suggestions. I still resent Terry McAulif being the DNC chair; his vision of the Party was that agenda an platform would be developed in DC by the DNC and followed and implemented by the rest of the country's Party committees and members. It should always be the other way around, in my opinion. The best thing for the party was having McAulif resign, but it will take a long time to recover. We still aren't likely at this point to pick up any major gains in 2006, and by no means does it look positive for an Executive change in 2008, but Dean has his work cut-out for himself. I think he may do some interesting things, so I'm looking forward to working on this letter for the next couple of weeks. Does anyone have suggestions?

I may post both since I'm not sure either would ever reach the light of day once they leave my hand.

Ah, Lou Reed's Last Great American Whale just started playing. Is that rather apropos or what?

And I quoteCollapse )
