Yo, you know what rational racism is?

The Beacon School.

So i'm trying as best i can to integrate radical and provocative themes in my schools community service program. Already we have established youth facilitators, we read a letter from birmingham jail, talked about solidarity. thats tight i guess.

But I kind of felt kicking down the walls of my school friday when this happened to me. As a community service advisor i try to help kids find places to do their community service. I've been trying to convince all my kids to go out and work for rad organizations rather than housing works, or a middle schools. To get to the point, after advisory, i have this one kid telling me he doesn't have time for community service. so i'm all like: "o.k then fail".

Oh my god, this kid! Says he plays tennis for 4 hours everyday after school, and does homework all day on the weekends. Not only is it a problem that this kid is clearly lying, but how when i told this kid if he didn't do community service he was going to fail, he went and got his coach, coincidentally the admissions person at my school, and they both coerced me into allowing him to tutor kids spanish during lunch. Wow, so I'm asking everybody in my class to go outside of school, do some real work, look at problems communities are facing, and because your a privileged white kid who plays tennis, you don't have to?
Basically, thats what the dean of admissions/tennis coach told me. Right on!
It's the same guy who didn't allow students at my school to hold a forum on diversity in public schools. Its the same guy who teaches "american social history" and considers himself a progressive. What a rational racist.

support our troops?

My knee jerk reaction: poor uneducated people who enlist in the military are not at fault for the atrocities of war, they are just pawns of the U.S's imperialist project.

I am not so sure of that statement anymore...

"Private Stoner said Sergeant Gibbs “associates with skinheads online.” Specialist Morlock said Sergeant Gibbs had “pure hatred” for all Afghans. Fingers he is accused of collecting are now part of the evidence in the case, as is a tooth he is said to have pulled from a dead Afghan and bones other soldiers said he dug up."
Truly Embarassing...

These people are evil, and i will no longer defend them on the grounds that they are influenced by things they can't control. I will no longer defend them just as i never defend John Ashcroft or Henry Kissinger, because arguably they could be "just influenced by the hyper-capitalist imperial economy they are surrounded by". I am sick of excuses.. I understand how offensive this may be..but i really cant support our troops after the actions at Abhu-Graihb (sp) and now in Afghanistan. You make choices on a daily basis that are intrinsically correlated to your environment, but that is no justification for being a neo-nazi, OK?

"Radical" Cigarette Smokers

Complaining about environmental destruction? count me in.

Complaining about environmental destruction, stogie hanging out of your mouth, count me out.

What a Rebel.

This has been running through my head for sometime now and I'm just going to let it loose. If you smoke cigarettes, bum cigarettes, roll cigarettes, engage in any activity involving tobacco from unknown sources, you should sit back, relax, and shut up about environmental destruction.

There are no statistics readily available to prove cigarettes are instrumental in deforestation, pollution, and other forms of oppression, but its quite simple:
Papers: trees
Butts: Landfill, Plastic, Fish Killers
Tobacco: chemicals, fertilizers, water, land (that could be used for vegetables). In the United States there are aproximatley 37,013 classified tobacco farms, All farms
producing tobacco averaged about 7.5 acres in 2002. That means that 277,500 acres of land in this country are used to grow tobacco, and not vegetables.

I just don't understand vegetarian, vegan, cigarette smokers...

And then there is another complication: Cigarettes are full of chemicals!

(petrol additive)

* A colourless cyclic hydrocarbon obtained from coal and petroleum, used as a solvent in fuel and in chemical manufacture - and contained in cigarette smoke.
* A It known carcinogen associated with leukaemia.

GOOD JOB! The money going to abroad wars focused on securing petroleum, the oil spill in the gulf, they weren't just keeping in mind the millions of dependent cars, plastic products..ect. They were thinking about the Benzene chemical manufacturers, the industry that exists because of your cigarette and soda addiction.

Solidarity with North Carolina, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia..whose former plantations that perpetuated slavery, now perpetuate slavery to cigarettes, inducing environmental destruction and social comfort.

DOVER, Del. — In the bright light of Wednesday morning, Christine O’Donnell, whose Republican primary victory upended the calculus for future control of the United State Senate, became quickly known to Americans as the woman who once made dire warnings about the negative impact of masturbation.

Ms. O’Donnell has taken positions against federal financing for stem cell research, is opposed to abortion even in cases of rape and favors tough penalties against businesses that hire illegal immigrants. She has also suggested in past television interviews that evolution is soft science, and questioned the utility of financing AIDS programs.



This candidate is off the charts stoops.

40 oz Fail

40 oz Bounce! In the Heights!

Obey Da Stoner

Ok so I thought it would be fun to take pictures with interesting looking persons. So i did like Reese Werkhoven and chose my favorite characters and took some flicks. Luckily i had my bro Alon taking the are some of many, starting with my boy alll the way from Staten Island!!!


Best Fwends

Unfortunately this party wasn't so Bouncin' because there was no music (deaded generator). But i had a grand time watching the crowd of 400 or so people run back and forth between the park because of supposed "cops". When the Cops finally did show, there were only two of them ......on Mopeds, and the 400 or so toughest looking heights dudes went running.

Target Sucks

Our political system is inherently flawed, that is no news to me. What i continues to shock me is how blatant these flaws have become without any recalcitrant response from the public.

Citizens United v Federal Election Commission

The verdict of this supreme court case asserts that corporations are indeed entitled to the first amendment, thus allowing them to fund political campaigns without any restrictions. Considering the way that politicians are elected in this "democratic" system (whoever has the most money for their propaganda wins..), the verdict of this case basically allows for Multinational corporations to hand pick the people making decisions about who can marry who, how much funding goes into our schools, how much funding goes to war, how far the police and state can violate our bodies, and every other structure implemented by our government. Fuck, that is scary. I generally trust humans over corporations, but just like the supreme court said, the difference between the two is becoming fuzzy. I have lost all connection to any sort of decision making, having the power to decide is the "charm" of this country, where are my choices?

Shout out to these folks who showed their dismay at Target...A corporation that has activley begun to take advantage of this new priveledge by donating 150,000 dollars to an campaign based on Anti-Gay and Anti-Union/Workers premises.

If i would throw a parade it would be through the supreme court and congress, who made the ridiculous decision to allow this atrocity to occur, but you will not be seeing me shopping at Target. You would have never seen me shopping at Target regardless of this, but fuck Target twice over.

If love does not know how to give and take without restrictions, it is not love, but a transaction that never fails to lay stress on a plus and a minus.

Free love? as if love is anything but free. Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love.

If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.

Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.

The State is the altar of political freedom and, like the religious altar, it is maintained for the purpose of human sacrifice.

yeah dad!

My dad was born and Raised in Uruguay, a country where you eat meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Asado, chivito's, panchos, milanesa's, jamon con queso, the list goes on... Its semi-cool by me, because the animals raised for consumption in Uruguay, get to roam about the land all day (until well...). The beef doesn't just taste like beef, it tastes great. So i guess my point is, with this kind of upbringing, you can imagine the loyal meat eating mentality one might develop. So i want to give props to pops, for cooking the best vegan meal ever!
Quinoa, Brocolli, Cranberries, and Swiss Chard, Sesame! yumm

memories, words, from death row

I appropriated some of Niccola Sacco, and Mumia's words to write a comparison of state oppression between the 20's and Today. Two men in prison, two men unwilling to relinquish their ideas even at the face of death.

Memories and Words from Death Row

They are friends, Friends of yours and mine
they are comrades that FIGHT

-His fight for freedom echoed around the world for it showed that the violence of slavery would be answered by the violence of the oppressed. How many of us actually celebrate his memory? (Nat Turner)

they Have fought and Fell yesterday, for the conquest of Joy. Yes they sometimes fall.

Its ancient history, and also as present as YESTERDAY

so, Who do we pledge our allegiance to?

The state, Death by state control

Cause comes along- you refuse to defend it_ at that moment you begin to die. And i have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about justice.

In the struggle of life, youll find more love, and in the struggle, of freedom for all. You will be loved Also.

Concrete wasteland, with no time to skate makes me wish for the woods and fresh air. Having the SAT in 1 week, and all my finals are starting to make me feel like im locked in the combine. Cant wait for this summer, cant wait to breathe. Green tea with Ginseng and Honey, 12th and A, I want to skate a mini ramp, i want to sleep next to trees and grab some dirt.
