Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

I’m Getting Pissed Off at Obama

It looks like Obama-nation is getting screwed again. Appointees from the Clinton (“I did not have sex with that woman”) Administration, a decision to not prosecute the Bushite fuckmooks for war crimes and being just a limp dick when it comes to the fixing of our Bush-destroyed economy.

Can my Gentle Readers feel that I am freakin’ upset and pissed off? That I sense that we the people have been betrayed… sold a bunch of goods that are not what was advertised?

Damn fuckin’ straight.

I have a song runnin’ round my brain (and it ain’t “Cocaine”)-

“We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that’s all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
‘Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
No, no!

I’ll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I’ll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There’s nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
Don’t get fooled again
No, no!


Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss”

I Knew This Was the Truth…

The moneyed Cross-wearers are now worshiping their true God. It only took time for them to reveal their true object of worship- the Almighty Dollar/Baal. “Lord! Why hath I been forsaken?”

This comes via Wonkette-

Did I ever tell you that these creatures eat their own? It’s true.

Are Freddie and Fannie Bonnie and Clyde?

Here’s a breaking piece that show the dangers that comes with lobbyists who are not regulated.

This bullshit from 2005 is now costing us billions. Each and every one of those who part of this scheme should be put on their knees and shot.

‘Nuff said.

Tossing Out the Trash (the Rich)

All week we have been subjected to tales of the mayhem to come if our Nation doesn’t bail out several investment banks. “The World will stop spinning”, “There will be a Recession”, “America will go down the tubes”.

Sorry fuckers, it’s time to make the 5% pay the piper for their excesses, greed and speculations. I mean, fair is fair.

Ya’s want a bailout because of your beliefs? Fuck you. You threw the dice and there is no reason for the taxpayers to bail your sorry asses out. Say good-bye to your 5,000 square foot McMansions, your collection of fine cars. Tell Jason and Tiffany that there will be no more special lessons and clubs.They have to walk to school and pray that they can get loans for college.

I don’t just mean this for the Execs of the sinking firms, but also for the shareholders who have driven this insane path. I want all of you to take it in the ass as you have done to the 95% that actually works to survive and puts up with your fucking bullshit. Those of us that you look down upon now hold your balls and ovaries in our hands at this point in time. Payback is a Bitch, ‘eh?

Is this about bitterness on my part? Hell no. I made my way in this world without screwing folks. Ya’ll fucked everything in sight for your “profits”. The Law of Returns states that for every evil action, you will get it back three times. You freakin’ money-pigs have a lot of atonement coming.


No safety net for these mooks that screwed us and the economy. No quarter… they have made their beds, and screwed us in the process. Mo mercy and no forgiveness. They will become part of the 95% that actually gets things done in this country if they can actually handle a real job.

Welcome to the real World assholes. I hope you like flipping burgers at the local fast food eatery.

And you had better get my order right.

An Alternative To the Bush Bailout

Filed under: Corporate Business,Corporate Capitilism,George Bush — Morwen Madrigal @ 2:12 pm

This came via a friend-

I thought this was a brilliant idea!

I’m against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

Instead, I’m in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend.

To make the math simple, let’s assume there are 200,000,000 bona fide U.S. Citizens 18+.

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

So divide 200 million adults 18+  into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00.

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.

Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

So let’s assume a tax rate of 30%.

Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.

That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

Pay off your mortgage – housing crisis solved.

Repay college loans – what a great boost to new grads

Put away money for college – it’ll be there

Save in a bank – create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

Buy a new car – create jobs

Invest in the market – capital drives growth

Pay for your parent’s medical insurance – health care improves

Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean – or else

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back. And, of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

If we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it…instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( “vote buy” ) economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.

If we’re going to do an $85 billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

As for AIG – liquidate it.

Sell off its parts.

Let American General go back to being American General.

Sell off the real estate.

Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here’s my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn’t.

Sure it’s a crazy idea that can “never work.”

But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

How do you spell Economic Boom?

I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .

And remember, The  Krieg plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

Ahhh…I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

PS:  Feel free to pass this along to your pals as it’s either good for a laugh (or a tear) or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85 Billion!!

The Bailout B/S

My Intertubes Are Getting Tied

I am fucking pissed off.

Tomorrow I will not have internet access for the next eight damn days due to the laws that protect the fuckmook Telecom companies. The State law Act 736 which prevents municipalities from providing their own wireless systems is allowing AT&T to shut down my wireless Broadband that they had been providing here since 2/06. The reason for this is that the law demands parity between wireless systems and the “wired” systems as far as data speed goes. This means that advances in wireless BB technology are useless and cannot compete against the dinosaurs like ComCast, AT&T, Cox and the others. It also prevents dish systems from selling internet services where laws like this are in effect. ( go to Dish Network’s site, and look to see what services they can provide, then click on Looziana for Internet access… it only lists the wired ISPs, not satellite.)

I actually think that those of us who had Bellsouth’s wireless BB in New Orleans should file a Class-Action suit over this stupid law. I was one of the first to get this tech when it started here and I was never informed that this system was “temporary”. I paid $240 for the modem, and all AT&T offered me for the switch-over to their DSL was a free $85 modem. Fuck them. They also wanted $5 more a month for the service. “Free installation” doesn’t cut it in my book. I and the others who used the system have gotten screwed by this shit.

And I am very angry because this “law” is screwing up our ability to operate online during a storm whilst the wired system can be blown down or get flooded. My self-sustainability concept has taken a big hit. Our house can take up to a 9 foot flood, our Solar and  back-up generator will still be working, our cells don’t use towers here (they will function), the house will be stocked up with food and water for at least a month, but if the wired system goes down we are helpless as far as our work and income goes.

Television news will never give us the information we need about what is going on here and in the world. We will just be mushrooms- kept in the dark and fed shit. This is the 21st Century damn it- it is a time when many of us here live by their connection to the world via our ‘puters.  Our connections and jobs are increasingly dependent upon our machines. (The folks who commute burn so much gasoline… we fill up every 2 or 3 weeks. Our carbon footprint is relatively small compared to most of them.) The dream of the Future is being stymied by Dinosaurius Wiredus Telecomus since they want to keep making huge profits whilst providing an inferior product. The advance of technology spells their extinction and they are fighting tooth and nail to prevent that. This is completely wrong and evil.

It is time to slay the Beast. To advance all of our Natural Rights to move forward as Homo Futurus even if it means they die off.

It’s about moving into the Future. To grow and “become”.

Yes, I’m greatly fucking pissed off. To the Telecoms, “Fuck You You Fucking Fucks”. Our day is coming and you will be destroyed.

So mote it be.

Note- Due to the need to keep shuffling my online stored info into safe places, I don’t have time to provide links to the stuffs above. I have 9 hours left to finish organizing and protecting 9+ years of research and contacts in a coherent manner. (I’ll go bat shit insane if I just dump it all in the ‘puter willy-nilly.) When I get back online I’m going to be writing pieces on this topic as often as I can. Death to Dinosaurius Wiredus Telecomus! Death I say!

BTW- Comment moderation is in effect here. I won’t be able to approve them until next week, but please feel free to leave comments. I would like to know what you think about this situation.

‘Til then, have a Blessed week Gentle Readers. I go now to have my Intertubes tied. Fuck!

Ripping A Soul Apart

This week has been nothing but pain. The house is coming along, but I keep seeing the faces of the boys that died during the Crisis. I’m freakin’ feeling guilty: I still live. Working through the feelings of pain, loss and guilt are nothing but torture. (Last night a friend of ours almost lost it over the death of his good friend last Christmas Eve… I had to come out of my funk in order to try to help.)
Death is no stranger to me: my mom died in my arms when I was 13. That was the start for me: I wound up dealing with the AIDS Crisis a decade later. (do you have any idea what it feels like when everyone but yourself dies in a week from your Billiards team? How about finding out that your clerks are dead?) I remember my friend Adam having to have a lobotomy due to his AIDS dementia: he couldn’t remember my name when I would show to clean his home. I remember bailing a good friend out of jail because of the medications not working well together. I remember taking my coven to the top of Bernal Heights one night to show them the  “void” of light over S.F. General Hospital.
I lived that life, and the now current purging of New Orleans reeks of the same shit. I will not tolerate it.
Decades ago I dedicated my life to service. I knew what the cost was, but I also understood the benefit. (not that I knew that I’d be having nightmares and B/S, not to mention acts of kindness that still haunt me.)
When the Federal Flood happened, I made my decision to fight for New Orleans. Yeppers, my partner Betts tells me to STFU at times, but I continue the fight. The catz sit on my desk whilst I’m going crazy, but they know that Grand Ma is focussed. They understand. Do you understand me?
And ya’s know what? Ya’s don’t want me to go Freya on your asses… I have a ton of catz to unleash. I don’t wish to do that.
Alright, we must fight for Public Housing. We who stand for New Orleans must be there.
We cannot allow outsiders to determine the the future of our city, our home. This place is OURS dammit! New Orleans is our place, and the mother-fucking outsiders should have no say about our future.

At the risk of getting my tail feathers singed, I was the first here in NOLA to bring up Klien’s book “The Shock Doctrine”. Here is an article from ZNet that tells it like it is.

This coming week is the time for those of us who love New Orleans to prove how much we believe in this place… the proof of the pudding when it comes to love of place. Getting our house back means little when thousands of others are denied homes.


I will never be able to have a peaceful sleep in our almost fixed home if I know that there is a Grannie, or an Auntie, Uncle, Grandpa… who cries because they cannot return home, can’t be with their families.

My lament over these last few decades was that I could not die, that the Goddess would not let me die. I’ve always wondered what the reason for that shit. Now I know… the Fourth Battle of New Orleans starts soon. It’s about Humanity over dollars, a Human breath against the ticker tape from the Stock Market. The value of Life and Living…

If you have a heart, and a soul… work with us to stop the destruction of all of these homes. Please, please… don’t let this crime happen. We will pay for this in the Future if it goes down this way.
