Sad Lil Vegan 30.08.2010 10:11
Vegan Sadness
My ex-vegan best friend stopped talking to me and called me his enemy, because I used words like "enslavement" and "holocaust" to describe the suffering and abuse of animals. He calls this ad hominem attacks, and says my use of those words make him prefer to go out and eat meat, rather than become a vegan again. When I sent video links of animal torture and explained that "enslavement" and "holocaust" are not metaphors and not exclusively used to describe historical events involving humans, he threatened to call the cops on me. I am so sad. I am not a descendant of people who died in the nazi holocaust, nor do I know of any ancestors of mine who were enslaved in the south, so I don't use these words publicly. However, the definition of these words clearly fits animal torture and death too, not just those aforementioned historical events. I have been raped and sexually assaulted though, so publicly I do feel comfortable comparing the forced impregnation of breeding animals and the manhandling of cow breasts for the dairy industry to rape and sexual assault. My ex vegan friend is also highly offended at this, and gave me an ultimatum-- either change my mind of this issue, or I would lose him as a friend forever. It was impossible for me to change my mind, so he stopped talking to me! I am so sad. What can I do?

Boycott BP Arco and products
We have to do something to hold BP accountable for what's turning into the worst oil spill of all time! This is just a first step--and it's not like there's a good oil company--but I just signed a pledge to boycott BP for three months. You can join the boycott at www.BeyondBP.org and make at least a dent in the profits of at least one negligent corporation. My physical, economic, and mental/moral health depends upon maintaining my integrity and holding accountable those who otherwise would kill more people and ecosystems. In the west, BP is sold as Arco gas stations. BP also profits from the war against Iraqis and US taxpayers, the sale of plastics, Air BP ARCO Aluminum, Aromatics & Acetyls, Asphalt and bitumen. I boycott them when instead of using plastics, and other products sold by or using BP oil, I use glass or bulk, local, bike, foot, etc. I boycott BP when I don't use their toxic chemicals on my lawn or garden or in my home. Please post BP affiliates and products.

Possibly 35% of the population may be electrosensitive and it is projected that perhaps 50% will be by 2017. Nothing will be done until people begin dropping in the streets.

What is planned for Portland May Day Protests?
Historically May Day celebrated a hopeful new beginning then... labor activists who were killed in the US, and how locally and globally we can defend our rights as workers, consumers, down-winders/down-streamers, patients, tax-payers. ... Then how all our causes are connected.... Then our collect resistance and alternatives to police brutality and fascism. Nationwide protests were planned before the Arizona anti-Latinos law, for Sat., May 1, 2010 in solidarity against attacks on low-income workers and targeted middle income workers, workers denied papers, workers easily exploited because of racism, Latinos, and the poor... all to inflame and distract voters in a divide-conquer excuse for a worsened police state and to pressure Mexico to let the USA control their oil and security. These anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian and anti-Muslim policies allow mercenaries, police, and prisons practice for rounding up and imprisoning most of our population. As the most people lie to themselves that this is not a problem or is actually a solution, or at least is not relevant or solvable, they/we allow ourselves to be the next victims. The more money spent on fascism, the less money available for safe clean water, clean air, safe affordable housing, good jobs, good schools, good health care for all, good self-government, and holding corporations and multi-millionaire or billionaire criminals accountable. So what is planned for Portland in a few days? Who, what, when, where, with what support and solidarity?

he US and many countries around the world are examining how to deal with erotic entertainment. Although there are tens of thousands of arrests in the US each year for erotic entertainment and related crimes, in 11 Nevada counties erotic entertainment is legal.

Please immediately post inspiring, constructive movie/book pairs on how to resist social control/mind control in an increasingly fascist world that my sensitive, already-politically savvy daughter can propose to her high school teacher as an alternative to depressing, cynical, violent ones that teach insensitivity and learned helplessness. She is highly sensitive to violence. She knows deeper foreboding analyses of current events and history, and evil plans for our future. She already knows more than most adults about problems; she needs uplifting solutions and images that will sustain her under oppression while under persecution and privation, when she seems to be the only one speaking out. She needs to learn how to stay alive when she would be one of the first targeted for her leadership and moral courage, and how to keep her hope/faith, her inner joy, her effective clarity.
