Zombie's Latest Photo Essay In Case You Missed It

These photos were taken by zombie at the anti-war rally in San Francisco on Saturday, September 24, 2005.

A pattern emerges

Read enough blogs and not only do you become informed, but patterns emerge. The following are excerpts from blogs and essays around the web. Rather than an "echo chamber" the following articles reinforce the viewpoint that moving to the Nanny State is a BAD thing.

How did we get there and what can we do to stop the slide into the cesspool of Communism (be sure to wipe your feet, Mommy says!).

Visualize Industrial Collapse
They envision a future that is “radically cooperative and communitarian, ecological and feminist, spontaneous and wild.” A primitivist society would be decentralized, egalitarian, and self-sufficient…

Anarchists have long argued that in a free world, social, economic, and psychological pressures towards excessive reproduction would be removed. There would just be too many other interesting things going on to engage people’s time! Feminist primitivists have argued that women, freed of gender constraints and the family structure, would not be defined by their reproductive capabilities as in patriarchal societies, and this would result in lowered population levels too. So population would be likely to fall, willy-nilly.

OK, some current examples of the return of the primitive:
Miami Ink
Going Tribal

And some feminizing examples:
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy with its tag line: Official site of this weekly show where five gay men transform a style-deficient and culture-deprived straight man from drab to fab.

Ummmm, no thanks. My man has more culture and style than the five of them put together.

Calling all men
Do we really want women taking over the job market from men? Do we want a nation of stay-at-home, Oprah-watching Dads? I don't think so. I also don't think we want women dominating college education as professors (which their percentage of doctorates indicates they will). The few men remaining on campus will be educated by feminists who want a matriarchal society and hierarchy.
A Tale of Two Demonstrations
During the various festivities, the heroin-addled Steve Earle sang protest songs and Sheehan’s backers chanted, “Hey, Bush, we know you/Your daddy was a killer, too.” Unsurprisingly:

supporters of the Socialist Equality Party and the World Socialist Web Site distributed thousands of copies of a statement of the SEP entitled “Katrina, the Iraq war and the struggle for socialism” and sold a large number of copies of a new WSWS pamphlet, “Hurricane Katrina: social consequences & political lessons.” They found a positive response to this intervention, which posed the necessity of building a new mass socialist movement.
UPDATE: I knew I had a point here. The two demonstrations. One, with Mommy Sheehan involved, the other, a focused, poignant rally with real men and women.

In all this Sheehan business, where is Dad? Is he somehow inconsequential? He is divorcing her and I am sure chooses not to get involved in this fracas, however, the MSM seems to ignore him. Only Mommy matters.

The ACLU vs. America
Read the wedding “vows” of ACLU founder Roger Baldwin in 1919:

To us who passionately cherish the vision of a free human society, the present institution of marriage among us is a grim mockery of essential freedom…We deny without reservation the moral right of state or church to bind by force of law a relationship that cannot be maintained by the power of love alone…The highest relationship between a man and a woman is that which welcomes and understands each other’s loves….The creative life demands many friendships, many loves shared together openly, honestly, and joyously…” (See pages 12-13 of our book.)

Then let’s look at the words of Roger Baldwin back in 1935 when he wrote the following in his thirtieth anniversary Harvard University classbook:

“I am for Socialism, disarmament, and ultimately the abolishing of the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”

So it all makes sense now. Emasculate the men and create the Nanny State.

The Pussification Of The Western Male
Out there, there is a huge number of men who are sick of it. We’re sick of being made figures of fun and ridicule; we’re sick of having girly-men like journalists, advertising agency execs and movie stars decide on “what is a man”; we’re sick of women treating us like children, and we’re really #### sick of girly-men politicians who pander to women by passing an ever-increasing raft of Nanny laws and regulations (the legal equivalent of public-school Ritalin), which prevent us from hunting, racing our cars and motorcycles, smoking, flirting with women at the office, getting into fistfights over women, shooting criminals and doing all the fine things which being a man entails.

I want our government to be more like Dad—kind, helpful, but not afraid to punish us when we #### up, instead of helping us excuse our actions.

I want our government of real men to start rolling back the Nanny State, in all its horrible manifestations of over-protectiveness, intrusiveness and “Mommy Knows Best What’s Good For You” regulations.
But we can have THIS visualization:
Is Hillary Clinton the next Geena Davis?

But here in the REAL world, we cannot ask the hard questions of a woman in power at fault.

Blanco asked NO QUESTIONS about Katrina

I only joined the GOP because I supported W, you know. The rest of you have been - with rare exceptions - spectacularly unimpressive.

I’m sorry…but you sit around day after day watching the opposition savage your party leadership and blame your president for every ill in the world, with the full complicity and assist of the press, and then - on two occasions in one week - you find yourself with LEGITIMATE (not spurious) reasons to do some serious jawboning with members of the opposition party, and you roll on your backs and pant, “please rub our bellies…”

I miss John Wayne.

File this under "You have got to be KIDDING!"

Jeb Bush says:
Bush, a brother of President Bush, said he gets a lot of e-mails from frustrated people who go through Miami International Airport. He also said the federal government should expand scholarship programs for residents in Latin America, the Caribbean and other regions to come study in the U.S.

"The United States has actually pulled back after Sept. 11 with providing visas for foreign students," he said.
Let's see, hmmmmmm, how did Mohammed Atta and "friends" get here.....hmmmmm, could it be, oh I don't know student visas?

Oh yes, let's DO relax security at Miami International!
Colombian police have found the bodies of three human foetuses hidden in statues destined for the United States.

...officials are trying to find out who sent the packages, which came from Barranquilla in Colombia and were destined for Miami in the US.

I can't wrap my head around this

To make this year's list of the top 400 fortunes in the US a minimum net worth of $900m was required - up from $750m last year.

What on earth do you need this much money for? How do you spend it? Would you even want it? How many homes do you need? How much stuff is enough? I have so much junk in my home I need to get rid of a ton. I know I am not alone on this. So far 535,266 pounds of clutter since September 16, 2005 have been flung (scroll down a little for the details).

Do these people ever have a garage sale, and if so where would it be and can I go?

Justice Ginsburg Wants Women's Activist On Court

Gee, ya think?
"I have a list of highly qualified women, but the president has not consulted me," she added during a brief interview Wednesday night.

BWHAHAHAHAHA! Who cares what you think? Do you think she is aware how many people want her off the court? (If course, maybe that is just me.) Why, in the name of all things golden, would the President consult her?
There are "some women who might be appointed who would not advance human rights or women's rights," Ginsburg told those gathered at the New York City Bar Association.

Ya think? Some women who are opposed to say, umm I don't know, abortion "rights"? Some women who are opposed to say, umm, maybe supporting the ACLU?

Maybe that's just me.

UPDATE: I was loath to post the Ginsburg wants to lower the age of consent to twelve because that sentiment appeared to have been debunked. Looks like I was wrong.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Was for Lowering the Age of Consent to 12 Years Old
