YES!!! Now let us hope that we can grab that pitchfork out of that bastard’s hand. He has the drones, the military, the bombs, the police, the tear gas, the pepper spray, the guns, the millions of eye spies everywhere, he’s got the power and he’s got the backup, and some of the most nastiest supporters that have every supported anyone in this country before. and a host of other things to put us down and all of us away. And yes brother and sister this man will use it. Oh we forgot he has the button. That big button that creates on the planet the big last one. KABOOOOOOM!!!!!!! All gone. The end was near and now it is. Foolish radical Christians rejoice as they fly off to meet their maker, hit the blank wall and fall into the burning melting pits of where the earth use to be .

BUT—

We have love, we have joy, we stand taller than his wall. We have peace that begins with us. We have right and that is our might. We have the hats, we have the signs, we are pretty and we are witty.  We call out Kitty, Kitty, Kitty. We have the pom poms of revolutions and we will use them. Forward!!!!! Onward!!! Now one question is who has god on their side? Who will side with our Moses? Who will smote the waters and open up a pass way for us to go through.

We know in bringing down a tyrant and his fellow travelers that all things and ways are considered.  Let’s put new twists on the words of Malcolm, “By any means necessary!” Let us never question the power of the people to bring down the hateful.

Stop the Mutilation of Chesapeake Rays!!

  • by: Charli Holland, Deja Davis
  • target: Maryland Governor Larry Hogan; Mark Belton, Secretary, MD DNR; MD General Assembly, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., House Speaker Michael E. Busch; Fred’s Sports; Chesapeake Bay Program

Fred’s Sports in Maryland sponsors a cruel and inhumane competition called “the Battle of the Rays.” This competition was held on the Patuxent River (in the Chesapeake Bay watershed), and video taken by an animal rights organization shows cow nose rays (often referred to as stingrays) shot with arrows, gaffed with hooks and then beaten with aluminum baseball bats. The ‘sportsman’ with the heaviest ray won prizes.

Once the brutal competition was over, the dead rays were thrown into the bay like trash. Sadly, many of the rays were pregnant, so not only did they die, but the next generation of cownose rays were also destroyed. Rays, like sharks, give birth to only one pup at a time (after a 10-12 month pregnancy!), so it’s a bad idea to be killing these animals so indiscriminately!

When contacted by news channels the Maryland Department of Natural Resources admitted they don’t know enough about the cownose ray population to tell whether competitions like this are a problem!

Sign our petition to tell the Governor of Maryland, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Chesapeake Bay Program, the Maryland General Assembly and Fred’s Sports to put an end to cruel contests like this, and gather more information to manage the ray population more sustainably.

Washington: President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal includes a substantial $54 billion dollar increase in defense spending, with corresponding cuts in foreign assistance and other non-military spending.

Highlighting what Trump has described as a “public safety and national security budget,” the plan raises national defense spending — already the highest in the world — by almost 10 percent.

The organizers invite artists, activists, scholars, creative thinkers and anyone who identifies as a “nasty woman” or a “nasty woman ally” to submit a visual or performative work to the show.

The “Day Without A Woman” Strike Details Are Out, And Here Are 3 Ways To Participate

The date of the “Day Without A Woman” strike coincides with another important event: International Women’s Day — which is no coincidence. International Women’s Day began in 1908 when thousands of women gathered in New York City to demand better working conditions, better pay, and the right to vote. The first official International Women’s Day was observed three years later, in 1911. Given that, according to the Women’s March website, the purpose of “A Day Without A Woman” is to recognize “the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system — while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity,” it makes perfect sense that the strike coincides with International Women’s Day.
