You can disregard Dear Leader's promise from January '09. Jeff Kaye/Fire Dog Lake reports that a US military spokesman has confirmed that the military currently tortures prisoners at Guantánamo under policies explicitly approved by President Obama and to which "the politicians dutifilly saluted," even "liberal pragmatists" like Sen. Diane Feinstein. How can these people live with themselves?
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
