Subject:Welcome to War Country
Posted by:punktour2000.

Mood: angry.
Dear Mr. Asshole,

Cindy Sheehan was arrested last night, during the/your state of the union address. She was arrested because she wore an anti-war t-shirt; a t-shirt promoting peace. I would think that the idea of peace is the world is a good thing, but obviously the police and the government/you do not. The police asked her to cover up her t-shirt (because it promoted peace?), and when she refused, she was arrested. Might I remind you that Cindy was one of several thousand people who lost their son or daughter in our "war"? Since you/the president and our government doesn't approve of peace (it's evil), then what is the other option?

Sincerely,
An Anti-Bush T-Shirt Wearing Man

Subject:Operation Home for the Holidays
Posted by:weresolipsists.
Time:1:08 am.
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"

I already linked to this, but I have more to say now:

As part of President Bush's "faith-based initiative," US taxpayers gave the Salvation Army's children services division $47 million this year -- 95% of its total budget. Several Salvation Army employees refused to take the Salvation Army's pledge "proclaiming Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord," reveal which church they belong to or identify gay co-workers -- and were summarily fired.

Let's parse this event out. The money came from American taxpayers, many of whom are not Christians. Nevertheless the workers were fired for refusing to pledge allegiance to the Christian prophet. They were also fired for failing to disclose their own religious affiliations, if any. And finally, they were fired for refusing to rat out their co-workers.

Sounds like something that would happen in Communist China, doesn't it? And, if it had happened in China, and it was Christians getting fired, you can bet your sweet bippy the Bush administration and America's Christian right would be screaming bloody murder about it.

But not this time. They even found a judge to back them on it. (continued at link.)



Seriously. Between this, $300 toilet seats and private friends of the administration making a killing off the illegal Iraq war it seems the most effective thing I can do on an individual level to protest this kind of shit is simply to stop paying my taxes.

An article was out not long ago, which I can no longer find, that proposed a nationwide movement of people doing this as means to protest the war. The relevence of this is obvious. The people doing the abusing just go out of town when mass movments go to the capital. They ignore the experts, "don't read the polls" and close their ears and turn their backs as we protest and sit on our thumbs getting angier and angrier. And the only reason they are able to do this and yet continue to hijack our country for their personal gain is because no matter what we might say, or how outraged we get, the tax dollars just continue to roll in.

It is officially my opinion that everyone that opposes the blatant abuse of their tax dollars in this manner, should simply stop paying their taxes.

This flyer was made to refute Punk Voter's flyer called "15 Reasons to Hate the President" which they've been passing out for the past two years.


because you probably only read the shit Punk Voter puts out and fail to pay attention to any media source that isn't the televisionCollapse )

I don't know if this has been posted/sent to your e-mail, but I got it today and it was a laugh fest. If you've already seen it, it's still pretty damn amusing.

 

And to anyone who wants to harp on me telling me "how mature" I am for posting this, save it, it's a joke. I don't take the fortunes in fortune cookies seriously either...
