One Week.

Posted in and other fun, News, Rambling on 11 April 2010 by jason

It’s spring again, which means the crime in my neighborhood is about to go up.. Just last week, I said to a friend, “Wow…the weather’s really nice. I wonder how long it will take for my neighbors to turn this place into a police station.”

One week. That’s how long.

On Wednesday, I cam home to 3 Sheriff’s cruisers, uniforms everywhere, and some people who were dressed real nice but packing heat. I tried to ignore it and get ready to go for a run, but my curiosity got the better of me, so I asked another neighbor what was going on.

It turns out, one of my neighbors had died of a drug overdose about 4 days earlier, and the people on that side of the building had just started to notice an odor coming from is apartment.

So, yeah. The spring is off to one ghettofabulous start.

When there’s no room in Hell, go to Canada!

Thanks to Jeshi for pointing this out!

More zombie-like attacks in Canada!

Here are some quotes, taken completely out of context to suit my needs:

In another incident that occurred within the past seven days, a paramedic was pulled to the floor of an ambulance and bitten on the shoulder.

And four paramedics were physically challenged recently while trying to care for a combative patient in a separate attack.

[…]Paramedics are now issued protective vests they can wear at their discretion, and they also receive self-defence training in the event of an attack.

Where are Jenny Romanchuk and the Zombie Hunters when you need them?

Zombie attack in Canada?

This is fucked up. You can’t make this shit up.

The full story.

And when we all got up, we saw that the guy was cutting off the guy’s head[…]There was no rage or anything. He was like a robot, stabbing the guy.

The Fix is in? II

They’ve done it again: the news media are excluding Kucinich.

The short form-NBC set criteria for the debate on Tuesday, January 15th. Kucinich met the criteria, including that he must have a 4th place showing “in a national poll”. He placed 4th in the USA/Gallup poll. He was even sent an official invitation. Then, NBC decided to only allow 3 candidates to debate.

This is happening too many times to be a coincidence. If Kucinich is such an insignificant little man, why do the networks and news outlets seem so afraid of him?

Why were the polls that predicted an Obama win (and a Clinton loss) in New Hampshire so wrong?

Was the discrepancy because, at the voting booths, because Clinton’s name has an alphabetical advantage?

Was the difference because racist voters lied about who they voted for?

Or maybe it was that almost crying in public “humanized” her in the eyes of the voters.

Or maybe, the whole thing was rigged.

The last possibility is being investigated by Dennis Kucinich; he is working on demanding a recount. As he says in the below audio clips, he is not neccessarily trying to prove that there was machine rigging; he just wants the American people to know if they can trust the voting process.

Kucinich is looking for donations to help pay for the New Hampshire recount. Even if you don’t live in New Hampshire, this is important…many other states use these voting machines, and if this vote was indeed rigged, it could happen to your state too. Go to the Kucinich website and give him your support in this, even if you are not a Kucinich supporter.

EDIT: (It has come to my attention (thanks, dash!) that the link to contribute to the cost of the recount and Dennis’ campaign contribution link are one and the same. That’s a little dissapointing, but I’ll give dennis the benefit of the doubt this time. Anyway, if his campaign does post a link for just the recount, I’ll post it. Until then, if you want to contribute to the recount, sit tight.)

Kucinich ignored. Again.

Did anybody watch the Des Moines Register Democratic debate on December 13th? I didn’t. I didn’t care what anyone had to say. Why? Well, it wasn’t a fair debate. See, a debate is actually a debate only when the different sides of the debate are allowed to speak, and if you watched it, you will know that Dennis Kucinich wasn’t there.

According to the Kucinich web team, via myspace:

Here is the arbitrary list of criteria for inclusion in this debate, and in other debates held in Iowa this fall:

Eligible Participants for Des Moines Register Debates will include Presidential Candidates who:

1. Have filed an FEC Form F-2, “Statement of Candidacy,” with the Federal Election Commission; (CHECK)

1. Have publicly announced an intention to run for the nomination of the Republican or the Democratic Party for President of the United States; (CHECK)

1. Have employed at least one paid campaign staff representative to perform full-time campaign duties in the State of Iowa on behalf of the candidate since at least October 1, 2007. (CHECK – Kucinich has had a full-time staffer – an Iowa resident – on board since April)

1. With at least 1% in the Des Moines Register October, 2007, Iowa Poll (CHECK)

1. And lastly, have a Campaign Office inside the State of Iowa as of October 1, 2007 (to which the Kucinich campaign says CHECK, but the Des Moines Register says CHECK-OUT)

The whole truth, the truth the Des Moines Register is not telling you, is that Dennis Kucinich has a political organization in Iowa. It is small, but it is energetic and energized. His paid state coordinator, Marcos Rubenstein, works out of his home. Dennis and his wife Elizabeth have campaigned in Iowa many times.

The Federal Elections Commission recognizes that the Kucinich campaign has paid staff in Iowa. The IRS recognizes the legitimacy of a home office. Across the country, the Kucinich campaign has at least 15 high-ranking paid campaign staff members who work out of their homes. Their offices are campaign offices.

Here’s Marcos Rubenstein trying to get some answers:

Why, in a democracy, is this OK? The Democratic party should have boycotted the debate. I know that Kucinich has a snowball’s chance in Hell to win, but he doesn’t even have that if he’s even allowed to speak! This was a nationally televised debate! And the Democratic party didn’t know about this until the last minute, and they were just “confused” by the decision?

Ridiculous. I’m ashamed to call myself a Democrat.

Kucinich and the School of the Americas

Posted in Conspiracies, Kucinich, News, Politics on 19 November 2007 by jason

OK…I’ve heard of the school of the americas. I’ve heard that they do a lot of black ops training and whatnot, but I never knew if that was urban myth or fact. Because of this, I really don’t know too much about this story

Kucinich protests Fort Benning school

Still, I wanted to start the week with a Kucinich mention. So there.

Kucinich Vs. Cheney…it’s a slobberknocker!

Posted in Kucinich, News, Politics on 11 November 2007 by jason

OK, so it’s not. Anyway, there was a vote on whether or not to vote on this, and I guess the Dems fought against a vote and the GOP fought for it. In the end, it was sent away to be decided on elsewhere. Politics are silly. Anyway, here’s Kucinich:

Trivializing Kucinich

Here’s an example of how the media is trying to trivialize Kucinich. Watch how gracefully he responds.
