ecstasy and sex

OK. It is time for something to happen.
At some point, now preferably, members of the "first world" must claim the present situation finished. Let us decide that this house of cards erected on the blood of the have-nots be burned to the ground. We have, without a doubt, achieved a horror show. Please, let's fuck it all up, now?!? Let us forget the ideological differences that divide our disparate "progressive" movements and unite in the destruction of the empire's every asset. Is this too much to ask?

Damn!

Oldest trick in the book.

Then I would 04.Apr.2004 09:27

suggest

voting for Kerry, because if you think things are bad now, wait until the Bush regime gets another 4 years.
Individual rights, the environment, corporate greed, abortion, censorship.......these are all areas that would improve for the human being if Kerry is elected........if Bush wins......you ain't seen nothing yet.

sanity

He is a puppet of the empire. Can you not see past the band-aid of voting for a leftist? Many of the malcontents the empire has created will be convinced that government cares about them again. I don't want to see that happen. Better to break the government's toys.

I agree, we need a working class revolution.

not a: let's vote for some rich, white man. they solve all the problems, right?

Oh wait a minute, they're the bastards who dragged us all into this mess...line 'em up, shoot 'em down

'suggest' 04.Apr.2004 14:19

what

"these are all areas that would improve for the human being if Kerry"

--"areas" ?!? "for the human being" ?!? John Kerry is a privileged elitist beholden to multimillion dollar corporate interests, as is his party. he doesn't care or have on his agenda "human beings" - as proven by his vote in favor of Bu$h & Co.'s genocide in Iraq  http://www.iraqbodycount.net

"Individual rights"

--Kerry voted in favor of USA Patriot and Homeland Security

"the environment, corporate greed"

--nothing to do with Dems/Republicans. both get consistently worse with each passing year, no matter who's in the White House, or in Congress. (remember all those "promises" of Gore/Clinton?)

"abortion, censorship......."

--don't know specifically what you're referring to here - if you're talking about an overturn of Roe v. Wade, they don't need a Republican in the White House to do it. Censorship - see Kerry's vote in favor of USA Patriot above.

"you ain't seen nothing yet."

--no matter who's in the White House Jan. 2005.

here we are again, re-stating the obvious 04.Apr.2004 20:23

politics as possible

TO THOSE WHO WON'T SETTLE FOR KERRY EVEN IF THAT MEANS HELPING BUSH TO CLAIM THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SUPPORT AMERICAN IMPERIALISM AND WILL SUPPORT THE BOMBING OF HAVANA ---

Whatever you do to advance the causes of global justice and of democracy IN ADDITION TO DEFEATING BUSH in 2004 is moving in the right direction. Whatever you do to assure a Bush victory in 2004 is, at best, pissing in the wind and, at worst, cutting off your head to spite your dick. If that is your idea of how to achieve ecstasy in sex, then go ahead.

You don't like the pickle we are in. I don't like it either. But denial of unpleasant realities won't help.

're-stating' ?!? 04.Apr.2004 21:27

OBVIOUS.

"But denial of unpleasant realities won't help."
