Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

Bloomberg misses the point…

Filed under: 99%'s,Occupy,Occupy Wall Street — Morwen Madrigal @ 7:47 pm

Mayor Bloomberg is angry with the OWS folks claiming that they are trying to hurt people in the banking industry that make only $40k-$50K/year. That is patently untrue. those folk, their managers, district manager and the accountants are not the ones the 99% are  after. We want the top 1%, that portion of American population that pulls all the strings that control the rest of our lives.

Mayor Bloomberg you miss the point. This is not about working people but a machine made up of the mindsets of an insignifigant few.. One in 100. What gives them the right to rig our lives?

Bloomberg you are part of that 1%: What gives you the right to control a shop owner’s future? Do you really need the money?

The question to ask yourself is: “How much is enough?”.

You can’t take it with you when you die so I assume it is about a feeling of Power Over. Power Over is a fallacy. Power from Within is the true strength, and obviously you are severely lacking in that faculty.

Mr. Mayor, you will find that those rabble, that mob you denigrate is operating with Power from Within. They will win, not tomorrow, maybe not next month, but they shall win. And you and yours shall become nothing but footnotes in a History tome and scattered as bits of dust on the trash heap of Time.

Yes, I am part of the 99%, and I DO believe.

I haven’t had much to say

as of late. The house rebuilding, Bett’s illness/death and many months offline whilst in a Rest Home.

I need a new focus and cause. It has shown up over the last three weeks: the Occupy Movement and the 99%’s. I believe these are the most important set of events in the Progressive mindset. It is far past time that the back of the Money Beast be broken and what is left chained so that it never again rises up and endangers the lives, liberties and the pursuits of happiness of the majority of “We, the People”.

This gal loves a good fight. Blessings!

Another Toke Over the Line

Ron Paul may be certifiable, but I do have to agree with him from time to time. This is from Raw Story and Real Time with Bill Maher.

I’ve already started writing about efforts to end the prohibition of Cannibus here. When I really feel like getting around to it, I’ll write about how a little green flower saved my life and ruined many a doctor’s night’s sleep wondering why yours truly didn’t die on their schedule. (I am a contrarian bitch)

I Just Saw History

Filed under: American Culture,Barack Obama,Politicians,Progressive News — Morwen Madrigal @ 2:11 pm

Gentle Readers, I just watched the Inauguration of the 44th President of our Nation- Barack Obama.  His speech moved me to tears in that his words signaled the beginning to a new Progressive shift for our society as well as a validation of the Social Contract.

Today I witnessed the most important event in my life.  As a Progressive I was beginning to lose hope that our Country could get back on the path that was created in 1776. I was getting to the point that I would never live to see this day, but it did come… “Day shall come again.” Tolkien.

When George Bush entered the helicopter to take him away from D.C., Betts popped a bottled of champaign and we toasted the dawning of a New World.

Truly this is a Blessed day.

Don’t Let the Big Telecoms Suck Away Our Money

The following comes from the FreePress Action Fund-

President-elect Barack Obama has committed billions of dollars to rebuilding America’s crumbling information infrastructure. It’s a bold part of his economic stimulus plan that will revitalize our economy and our democracy.1

But as Obama’s plan moves through Congress, it’s come under siege by phone and cable lobbyists seeking to turn our economic stimulus into their blank check — written out to corporations like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon with no strings attached.2

Only a public outcry will ensure that public tax dollars go to serving the public interest.

Free Press has a five-point plan3 to ensure that any public investment actually serves the public interest. Our plan makes crystal clear that any taxpayer money should support broadband that is:

  1. Universal: focused on connecting the nearly half of the country stuck on the wrong side of the digital divide.
  2. Open: committed to free speech and without corporate gatekeepers, filters or discrimination.
  3. Affordable: providing faster speeds at lower prices.
  4. Innovative: dedicated to new projects only and available to new competitors, including municipalities and nonprofits.
  5. Accountable: open to public scrutiny so we can ensure that our money isn’t being spent to prop up stock prices and support market monopolies.

Building better broadband cannot be another corporate bailout. It must be a buildout for better democracy.

Connecting everyone will give more Americans a voice in government, better educate our children,4 revitalize rural economies, and bring hundreds of thousands of new job opportunities to those who need them most.

Greedy phone and cable companies have squandered America’s global Internet leadership — overcharging consumers, throttling content, stifling innovation and dropping us from fifth to 22nd place in world broadband adoption.5

With the economic stimulus package on the fast track in Congress, our plan needs your support right now.

It’s time we changed business as usual in Washington. Help jump-start the economy and restore accountability and openness to America’s communications policy by acting today.

Thank you.

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”
The Who

I didn’t sign up for this shit.

I can’t fucking wait to get that fuckmook Bushite out of office and see him hide away in his posh new Dallas enclave.

(I also wonder if the Feds will allow Cheney to keep his bunker since his coffin and grave dust is there.)

Colin Powell Endorses Barack Obama For President

This is the Dawn of a New World-

“Powell, making his 30th appearance on “Meet the Press,” said he does not plan to campaign for Obama. He led into his endorsement by saying: “We’ve got two individuals — either one of them could be a good president. But which is the president that we need now — which is the individual that serves the needs of the nation for the next period of time.

“And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities — and you have to take that into account — as well as his substance — he has both style and substance, he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.”

Powell said that he is “troubled” by the direction of the Republican Party, and said he began to doubt Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) when he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.

“Not just small towns have values,” he said, responding to one of Palin’s signature lines.”

So mote it be.
