wom@n and men

a quick moral rule of thumb: when forced to take sides, always side with the kids throwing rocks at tanks. but we're not forced thousands of miles away so just fuck all religious states. especially ones 'established' by the winners of a world war and ones printing 'in god we trust' on it's fucking money. after 70-ish years of pendulum swinging (read swinging dick) violence maybe it's time to consider this experiment of america's satellite state in the middle east a complete failure. people don't want the wars governments want. you can lay down pavement but true life will always grow up through the cracks. always.
