Right now, the US Congress is debating a law that would give them the power to censor the world’s internet — creating a blacklist that targets YouTube, Wikileaks and even Avaaz! Now if we stand with key members of the US Congress, we can defeat this global internet censorship. Sign the petition!
The above link is to a page on tru TV about “mothers” who have murdered their own children. Tho there is one missing from this list that I and MANY other feel very strongly, should be present on this list. Her name is Casie L. Basford. And as of tomorrow, Saturday, January the 14th, she will be 5 years over due for having evaded justice for the murder of her 2nd child. In 2007 she killed her 2 year old daughter Jezebel, by wrapping a blanket around her neck and strangling her to death while she slept. She then wrapped her in another blanket, and lay her in the bed beside her & went back to sleep. Four years earlier, she had “lost” another child in infancy to an “abnormal” case of SIDS. Tho the death was ruled as SIDS, there were things that did not match the scenario. Unfortunately, no one looked any deeper. Everyone just felt bad for the “mother”. It wasn’t until it was to late for little Jezebel that everyone who knew Casie started connecting the dots. And even after a skipped polygraph, then a failed one, the prosecutors declined to press charges. The 3rd child that Casie gave birth to, but would not raise, would not be enough to bring her punishment. The first child, a son, had been given up for adoption at birth to a responsible family member, who now is a main advocate in the fight to seek justice for little Jezebel. It is my wish that this post would go viral, spreading to real mothers, seekers of justice, and any normal people who think murdering children is wrong. Please, everyone who sees this, send it on to as many people as you can. These kinds of deed cannot go unpunished. This little girl did nothing to warrant a horrible death, after 2 years of neglect, by the monster who was suppose to be her protector. If you are tired of seeing innocent children slip threw the cracks of an incompetent & apathetic system, stand up, share your voice, do anything you can.
These kids deserve better.
Here is the link to the case, along with a Facebook Post by the leader of the crusade.
Every time i see something online, on the TV, in a magazine about going green, eco-living, eco-villages, freegans, and other alternative lifestyles, i always sigh with longing that i am not taking part in this movement. I would love to give up all of my material things, and go bohemian, and live a more natural & pure lifestyle. Its not all about a bunch of tree hugging PETA shit either. I still want to eat meat, i see nothing wrong with eating meat, hell if i knew how to tan a hide naturally i would kill a animal, eat its meat & make a blanket from its hide. That’s the way it was in the beginning of time, that is part of the natural order of things. However, do we really need a TV & DVD Player in every room? Do we need 3 computers, 5 cell phones, 4 Video game consoles, 6 MP3 Players, routers, landlines, printers, scanners, stereos, & over 400 DVD’s? I mean really? Is all this necessary? Is it morally or ethically right that my children thing that they have to have Cruel Girl Jeans, Hello Kitty Clothes, & Sketcher Shoes? Every new DS game that hits the shelves, every new toy trend, $100’s of dollars at a time to get these expensive toys that last a month if they hold the kids interest that long. Sacrificing time with family & friends working overtime & stressing about what to get a kid that has everything every Christmas & birthday. It’s all so depressing, it’s all so trivial, how is getting your kids everything that all the other kids have so that they blend into the crowd & disappear helping them build any kind of character? And just look around at all the ugliness in the world. All the hatred and greed, the violence and apathy. It’s disgusting. The primal part of my nature wants to take my babies out of school & home-school them to try and shield them from all the horrible things that people do. I was reading a book on Pagan parenting & teaching, and it made me want more than ever to just let go of the ties that bond me to these societal morays & devolve back to a natural pure way of life where we don’t put so much emphasis on the almighty dollar. Where we don’t rely so much on technology. Where we live by our own rules and codes. I fear for the safety of my children at school, because of the violence and bullying that goes on, same as with the bus & church van. I took my kids out of church because the teacher made my daughter cry by telling her that animals & such don’t go to heaven and have no soul. We taught her different. My mother being Native American & my step mother being druid even got angry at that. There is just to much to say about what all is wrong with the world today. You cant turn on the TV without seeing something gut wrenching that happened somewhere in the world or right next door. Anyways, maybe someday i will get my wish, until then i suppose I’ll just take each day as it comes, and try my best to take care of my family.
I went to Wal-mart today. I was already irritable just from being tired & feeling as tho someone had kicked sand in my mouth, keeping me guzzling water like a fucking camel on the run from Baghdad. Oh and by the way, i quit smoking 10 days ago and was fighting with my Doctor over not getting my Valium filled on time. Now for those of you who truly know me, also know that i am not the most pleasant or amicable person even on my best day. But you take away my psych meds & nicotine & put me in a building full of morons, something bad is gonna happen. So it has already been a long day. When you live 30 miles from the nearest Wal-mart, and you drive and SUV, and gas is $4 a gallon, you tend to want to load up as much as you can at a time. You know… fewer trips & such. Ok, so after all the time the shopping itself took, I get in a checkout lane with only one person in front of me. After about 10 mins i start getting impatient. After 15 mins i was more irritated. I start looking over the woman to see what the hold up is. Ok, of course, she is cashing her wic vouchers & has gotten everything on them wrong. A few more mins go by and there are now 2 managers there trying to fix the problem. As i am getting more & more volatile as the seconds tick by… I locate the source of the problem. They are trying to find someone she understands… because the 12 kids hanging off of her buggy didn’t tip me off that she was a Mexican. I shove past her and move to another line to check out. It is an express lane, i tell the woman “look, i know i have more than 20 items, but i am not gonna stand here all day waiting for your bosses to find someone in this store who just happens to be bilingual. she says ok with a bit of a nervous giggle & checks all of my items. we finally arrive at the end of the process & the fucking debit card machine is not taking my card. it them takes me screaming profanity at the woman & 2 more ever so intelligent wal-mart managers to fix the fucking machine. Now i am equally disgusted that i have to pay the price not only for the fact that our government gives benefits to people who cant even read, write, or speak a word of fucking English, but also that during such a crucial economic downfall, the dumb ass employees at wal-mart aren’t being fired to provide jobs for people actually deserve to fucking live. these people are so stupid, and such a burden on the human race that i have to say the Chinese lead fiasco must have fucked them all up permanently. i can find no other reason for some much stupid to be in one place.
Thank you & Goodnight.
I have been hearing the crap on the news all day about Amanda Knox. Thank god they finally let that poor bitch out. I was seeing in some of the bullshit evidence the Italian prosecutors had against her. they actually admitted her MySpace profile into evidence. You know sense shes been locked up for the better part of 4years and hasn’t had a chance to upgrade to Facebook like the rest of the world. Anyway, the prosecutor said that having a revealing picture of herself & using the name “Foxy Knoxy” was proof that she was overly promiscuous. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT HAPPY HORSE SHIT?! I new a bitch on MySpace that called herself Boo Boo Kitty Fuck & she owned a fucking head shop! what hasn’t her ass been arrested for anything?! Do you know why? I know why. Because everyone knows that pot heads don’t kill people. The only thing that is in danger around a pot head is a bag of Cheetos! Now don’t get me wrong, i know a loooooooot of people that smoke pot & tried it myself as a teenager. it just didn’t agree with me. just made me paranoid & hungry. a couple hits & I’d be in the fetal position in the corner rocking back & forth with a bag of cookies saying “they know what we’re doing in here…” being all jumpy like a tweeker ninja or something. And what the fuck do all thees fucking dumb asses think all of thees “social networking” sites are for anyways? Even the ugly bitches have figured out how to steal pics from other sites & say its them. i laugh my ass off whenever i think about how many horny nerds have jerked off to cyber sex with a 400lb dude that lives in his moms basement, thinking it was a model. here’s a tip guys. MODEL’S HAVE REAL SEX! NOT CYBER SEX! anyways I’m getting tired now. Thank you & goodnight.
As most everyone who knows me is already aware, i have never met my biological father. Yes, yes i know, boo hoo. LOL However, my life has been nothing short of fulfilling in this persons absence. My take on this man who supplied the semen involved in my conception is one of disgust and disregard anyways. Neither of my biological contributors had much to do with the person i am today, nor the path that lead me hear. My true family had no genetic or legal obligation to me at all, never the less, they all had a hand in on my up bringing. The most influential male figures in my life have been my uncles. My mothers biological brother & “blood brothers” alike. From the earliest memories it was my uncle Gene (R.I.P) i remember fighting with him over the TV in the mornings, crawling into bed with him when my mom worked nights, and even being hung on a plant hook by my overalls for kicking him. LOL Then there is my uncle Tommy. My early memories of him were of cookouts, camp outs, fishing, & swimming. Repeatedly untangling my fishing line from every bush & tree near my cast & kicking him out of his hammock so i could lay in it. My uncle Chuck, who has actually been a pivotal influence on me. I don’t know if he & i really understood each other when i was young. Or maybe we saw each other for who we truly were. Regardless, his daughter and I, my cousin Sarah were thick as thieves when we were little, so i was around them a lot. And he has given me some of the most practical & useful advice i have received in my adult life. Then there was my uncle Larry, who tried to be the fun uncle and liked to throw money around and spoil all of us nieces and nephews, when it was convenient for him. I didn’t realize until i was older that when he couldn’t be the big shot or impress someone, he just didn’t show up. it was devastating for all of us when he abandoned us for better prospects. But i suppose it was a life lesson everyone needs to learn sometime. Then my uncle Vernon, the big scary native at first glace, lol, who ran a sweat lodge for me and healed my body when no doctor could. i firmly believe that his medicine is the reason i was able to carry my youngest daughter. And we certainly cannot forget my amazingly awesome mother, who for my whole life played mom & dad. Working 2 & 3 jobs at a time, days, nights, weekends, to make sure i had what i needed. The woman who did without what she needed to get me what i wanted. She sheltered me, spoiled me, & made sacrifices for me that make your average everyday mother look like a selfish narcissistic bitch. Very few of you know the personal details to my coming to be a part of this family. Those of you that do, know the pain, drama, loss, and grief of so many types that this family had to endure for 18 long years, just to keep me and not let me be taken away. If that’s not love, then i don’t know what is.
I have seen some pretty horrible things in magazines and on tv in my life. But i was just physically damaged by my television, even more than the time i got really drunk and my brother spun me off the mary-go-round and i slid like ten feet threw the gravel. I saw a preview for a new movie called “Cowboys & Aliens” i am afraid i may have retinal scaring from this episode, and i am pretty sure my jaw have been dislocated. in short “A man falling from the sky with a weird bracelet on in the old west has to save the world from space aliens.” No the kind we get pissed at for not speaking English, not the kind we can call INS on. the slimy kind with claws and shit. The first words out of my slack mouth after witnessing this atrocity were “ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?!” So big ups to Arkansas best rant provider Angry Patrick!!!
Thank you, and goodnight.
I watched Black Swan for the first time over the weekend at the urging of my friend Jesse. After sitting threw the movie in it’s entirety, I found it to be much less of a psychological thriller and much more of a modern avant-garde adaptation of the classic ballet Swan Lake itself. If you pay close attention to the attitude of the individual characters you see quite easily that the mentally and sexually abusive mother displays very similar treats to Rothbart, one of the villains in the original Swan Lake. The director, Thomas Leroy, with his ability to break threw people walls and make them feel better about themselves, seems a lot like the prince. Nina herself, is both the white and black swan twins by way of her dissociative personality syndrome. Her real life is that of a trapped, hopeless, forlorn yet very pure and angelic girl. She is repressed and imprisoned by her insanely overbearing mother who is trying to live her dream of being a “Prima Ballerina” vicariously threw her emotionally shattered daughter. Nina’s alter ego mimics her friend and fellow ballerina Lilly. The wild, reckless, sexually liberated, beauty is everything that Nina wishes to be. So when her personality begins to fracture, she begins to fantasize about Lilly. She feels betrayed by the director when he casts Lilly as her alternate. The biggest indicator tho i think is the end scene. At the end of the original ballet the white swan looks at the evil Rothbart, then to the abstractly unrequited prince, then she looks out into oblivion before leaping to her death. When Natalie Portman does this, she looks at her mother and then Thomas. And in the end, Nina finds freedom only in death, just as the white swan she portrays. So all in all it was good for what it was and i give major credit to, Darren Aronofsky the director of Black Swan for his courageous efforts in the distortion of a beautifully tragic classic. Other than that my only real complaint was that Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis had to lose so much weight to play ballerinas in this film that you could see there ribs better than you could see there breasts. And that kind of made me nauseous. So there it is. Thank you and goodnight.
I am soooooo unbelievably tired of watching Christmas movies. i hate santa clause i hate the goodness facade put on by all of them. I didn’t even want to teach my kids about santa clause. My family talked me into it. i wanted to teach them about the yule festival. you know why? because it makes scene! santa is a gynormous effing joke! every time i see a disgustingly fat actor making money for a movie where he lies to kids all over the world it pisses me off so bad i wanna punch a hole threw the tv and call it horrible names. but alas… i can not afford to do so. my major discrepancy and reason for the LIE term is because it simply does not work that way. not like santa says it does. what about all the dirt poor & totally impoverished children in the world who are good all year and don’t get any presents, an have to spend christmas in cars, under bridges, or in homeless shelters? what about the abused and neglected children who try all they can and wish all year for something that never comes? don’t you think they feel cheated? i know i sure as hell would! and then what about all the hateful, horrible little basterds who spend the whole year picking on, bullying, and tormenting those less fortunate and get brand new game systems, cards full of cash and high tech shit that they do not deserve? how does santa fucking justify that? his jolly jelly ass must be on those rich fucks pay roll. why doesn’t santa and his gaggle of midget slaves ever take a trip to Ethiopia? take some ham and milk and cookies to the family’s of 19+ but don’t have the good fortune of the fuckin Duggers. Regardless of the secular or religious beliefs of a person one thing i know is absolutely undeniable and indisputable. christmas is not about santa, or elves, or baby jesus, or any of that crap anymore. christmas is about paying homage to the root of all evil, the almighty dollar. who ever has the gold makes the rules and with the majority of the human race in debt up to there fucking pupils, we are all still out there beating the streets, raking up money, and watching the cash roll out faster than it rolls in. because we have all programmed our families to see that it dose not really matter how good you are, if daddy brings home a nice pay check. and it doesn’t matter if you believe the stories or not cause mommy is gonna do everything in her power to get you that new lap top. and then people wonder why the suicide, robbery, and theft rates sky rocket this time of year. I suggest that you all sit down and watch billy bob thorntons bad santa, cause that is the most accurate description of what christmas really is, that i have seen in a long time.
Thank you and goodnight.
