A brilliantly sarcastic example of the political power of words from one of the best Progressive writers of your time, Katherine Manaan . . .

As the battle continues to rage between Anti-Jerk and Pro-Jerk factions, three Male Masturbation clinics closed today, victims of the latest legislation that is slowly but surely eroding the legal right for men to masturbate.

Anti-Jerks hold true that life begins at erection and masturbation is nothing short of murder. Pro-Jerks don’t think it’s any of the government’s (or anybody else’s) business what they do with their penis. Male masturbation is still not against the law but, because of the remarkably well- organized Anti-Jerks for Jesus, and the fundraising prowess of Tim Tebow, state legislatures are slowly but surely eroding the right.

WE DON’T HAVE TO MAKE THIS SHIT UP: KATHERINE MANAAN BANNED FROM FACEBOOK FOR 24 HOURS FOR POSTING ICONIC VIETNAM WAR IMAGE

Posted in DIANE VALENCEN OPINIONS, KATHERINE MANAAN, WE DON'T HAVE TO MAKE THIS SHIT UP on 28/04/2013 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

There’s a sinking feeling in the Executive Suite here at The Dis Brimstone-Daily Pitchfork that Facebook is just a means by which the corporate powers that be can keep track of the proletariat. After reading that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was entering the political influence game by offering aid and comfort to both side of the two party system in the United States as well as supporting the search for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Keystone XL pipeline I have to admit there was a moment of eye rolling. I was reminded of a conversation that I had with Fred Schwartz and Cavalor a few weeks ago. Someone mentioned Facebook in the meeting as being “at the pinnacle of social media and will be for a long time to come.” Cavalor laughed so hard it shook the walls in the conference room. Schawrtz shook his head and said to the young female demon on his research staff who was truly confused. “Are you searching with Veronica?” She replied, “No.” “Are you still on MySpace?” She said, “No.” “Then what makes anyone who heard what you just said think that in 15 years we’ll still be talking about Facebook?”

The silence in the room was proof enough.

Katherine Manaan who is the genius behind Middle Aged Woman Talking was banned from Facebook for 24 hours. Now I know your wondering why this rises to the level of something that needs to be discussed in the newspaper of record in Hell. The reason is she was banned for posting this photograph showing Phan Thi Kim Phuc when she was nine and the subject of a Pulitzer Prize winning snap as she ran burning and scarred from a napalm attack on her village by South Vietnamese forces in the late spring of 1972 side by side whith her now as an activist speaking on behalf of children wounded in war:

Kim-Phuc-by-Nick-Ut

Facebook felt that this photograph violated its community standards. However you can find on Facebook numerous pages as Ms Manaan has stated that glorify rape as well as many that glorify bigotry, intolerance, homophobia and a long list of other social ills. This was a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph 40 years ago and quite possibly the most recognized image of the war along with the assassination of Nguyễn Văn Lém and the self immolation of Buddhist monk Thich Quan Duc in Saigon in 1963.

It wasn’t just Facebook that appears to have had a hissy fit about the photo for reasons that still aren’t clear. Readers of Manaan’s blog who for the most part are the smart cool kids in the classroom were astonished I sure to hear that a reader sent Katherine an email saying the picture disturbed her. Ms Manaan is likely correct in the assumption that this woman is the person who complained to Facebook’s Gestapo. To this person I say there are many many things that disturb me but inlike those in the very short First Life I can wait until you’re down here with me to tell you what I think of you.

“Penn State shouldn’t have been given athletic sanctions by the NCAA for looking the other way during Jerry Sandusky’s repeated rape and abuse of young boys. If America were truly exceptional, the military should have been brought in and the entire county which worshipped at the altar of Joe Paterno would have been razed to the ground by all those leftover bunker busting bombs Bush bought for the Iraq war.”– Governor General Srindra Singh or Gilbesht in a debate about American exceptionalism with Sheol conservative MP Yancey Harrell on “Overdark” with Maarit Outi Pekkonen last night.

17684_10151302678801275_1550939780_n

The idea of American exceptionalism is not a new meme. The thought that the people who now live on this land, once occupied by the Human Beings; taken by violence in the name of profit, are more prosperous, more intelligent, cut from a more moral cloth and closer to the favor of their chosen Creator than any other has been clearly a concept of Faith for those who now call themselves “Conservatives” for the better part of the last one hundred twenty five Terran standard years. We, Ourselves, of the Collective and The Meditators have a problem with any such notion based simply on the statement expressed in the stripes of the flag above. One must begin to ask the questions of common men, the hoi polloi, and the oligarchs who now own your government and rule your media, “Who profits from this disaster?” and “What will be the spark that causes someone to give up their comfort in a revolution from which they may not reap a similar status to those they are fighting against?”

These are serious matters, not to be taken lightly as they were at Blogs4Victory just this past week. The conservatives there simply wanted to throw red meat at downtrodden aging white men who see their fathers have lost their birthright of unchecked bigotry in the last few decades and left them nothing more than the onanism of “being white is better than being black or brown” along with their Bibles to cling to in these desperate times. And, yes, We, Ourselves admit these are desperate times– for Conservatives. Not only is their ideology, their worldview dying, they are dying. For the moment there are a few million ardent young whites out there who shout just as loudly as the over 50 crowd about the “many ills of President Obama” but let Us be honest with Ourselves, these young men and women in their twenties aren’t in this politics game to bring back the Reagan years, roll back women’s reproductive rights or to solve America’s debt issues. They are seeking a pool of like minded people who given enough familiarity will allow them to get laid; something they wouldn’t do in a similar setting surrounded by more attractive more intelligent Progressives.

the good old days

So who does profit from all of America’s ills? There are many who do profit some of these groups will shock you others are well known. All must give up something or the Union will be lost to time and to history.

The-Rich-Get-Richer-Income-Inequality

Income inequality is clearly profited from by those who really run the country the oligarchs. Not just corporate CEOs but hedge fund managers, the boards of large law firms who write the laws and then pimp them to Congress and of course the religious oligarchs who are desperately trying to remain relevant in an age where technology is nearing its ability to make deities out of Men. And in the end this is nothing more than a clearly visceral reaction to the short duration of the human lifespan manifest in the form of greed for all things material.

Poverty-In-America-704926

Poverty has been used as a tool to keep the masses at bay since Time Immemorial. Poverty is profited from by the Church, the oligarchs and their corporate media. Poverty as an extension of bigotry feeds the furnace that drives the powerful to remain powerful. They do not care that a child is one day celebrating the reelection of America’s first Man of Color to the highest elected office and the next day a victim of gun violence. They do not care that children go hungry in the wealthiest nation on Terra as long as they are safe behind their gates and in their dens of luxury. Poverty is a prison sentence handed down by generations of greed and fear in the name of tribal purity.

An examination of these two ills shows how all the others are interconnected. It is time to drain their trough or America will be the soil where the seeds of failure of an entire species will be sown.

KATHERINE MANAAN EXPLAINS IT ALL

Posted in COUNTER-THEOCRACY, KATHERINE MANAAN, MIDDLE AGED WOMAN TALKING with tags , , on 25/09/2012 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

I have to thank the Majordomo for pointing me to Middle Aged Woman Talking written so well by author Katherine Manaan. This morning’s post was “Italian-American slang for heartburn but it can also mean mental aggravation” and it is a must read for anyone thinking of voting in the upcoming Presidential election in the United States.

I am surrounded by strong female voices here in our space on a daily basis and I’m sure that where you are you could use similar voices. I hope that one day, on Terra, women will not simply wield power but will be empowered by their intelligence and compassion for all Human Beings. In that day the The Fates will bless Mankind with Peace.
