Happy May Day!

Happy May Day to all you worker bees out there!
Pictured above is Clinton Jencks, someone who spent his life in the struggle for the working class and equality for women. Until his death last year, I knew him only as the husband of a customer of mine. Marjorie Cohn wrote a nice piece on Clinton for Truthout, it's an interesting history of a man that more people should know about including his short stint as a movie star in a film called "Salt of the Earth", a film that was banned in the US and still is in Mexico.
The Internationale

Arise ye prisoners of starvation
Arise ye toilers of the earth
For reason thunders new creation
`Tis a better world in birth.

Never more traditions' chains shall bind us
Arise ye toilers no more in thrall
The earth shall rise on new foundations
We are naught but we shall be all.

Then comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale
Unites the human race.

Freedom isn't free

Damn straight it isn't! It's costing U.S. 41% of our tax dollars for that dumb idea of killing people around the world so that we can sit and fart and watch football in the safety of our living rooms. Meanwhile we're putting a whole 1% towards non-military international programs and another whopping 2% into science, energy and the environment!
Check it out at the Friends Commitee on National Legislation.
And if that isn't bad enough, a new study by Unicef puts the U.S. and U.K. at the bottom of the list of "modern" countries in the child well being catagory.
And we want the rest of the world to be like U.S.? Those socialist Scandinavian countries are kicking our ass in everything from economics to healthcare, education and overall quality of life! I think I'd rather switch than fight!

Egg sucking dog.........

Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog
(Jack H. Clement)

Well, he's not very handsome to look at
Aw! he's shaggy and eats like a hog
And he's always killin' my chickens
That dirty Egg-Suckin' Dog.

Egg-Suckin' Dog
I'm gonna stomp your head in the ground
If you don't stay out of my hen house
You dirty Egg-Suckin' hound.

Now if he don't stop eatin' my eggs up
Though I'm not a real bad guy
I'm goin' to get my rifle and send him
To that great chicken house in the sky.

Egg-Suckin' Dog
You're always a-hangin around
But you'd better stay out of my hen house
You dirty Egg-Suckin' Dog hound.

A farmer stopped by the repair garage to have his truck fixed. They
couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he would walk home. On the
way he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of
paint. Then he went to the feed store and bought two chickens and a goose.
Now he had a problem - how to carry these purchases home. While he was
scratching his head, a little old lady approached him. She asked, "Can
you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?"

The farmer replied, "Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is near that
house. I would walk you there but I can't carry all these items at the same
The lady suggested, "Why don't you put th e can of paint in the
bucket...carry the bucket in one hand...put a chicken under each arm
and carry the goose in your other hand?"

"Well thank you very much," he said as he complied with her suggestion.
Then he proceeded to walk the old gal home. On the way he said, "Let's
go down this alley a short cut and we'll be there in no time."

The little old lady looked him over cautiously and said, "I'm a lonely
widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in
the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have
your way with me?"

The farmer said, "Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of
paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly
hold you up against the wall and do that?"

The old gal quickly replied, "Set the goose down, cover him with the
bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the

You don't know what war is!

"Fuck you people!"
"Fuck all of you people!" shouted the young warrior to no one in particular at the "stop the surge" demonstration Saturday. My favorite one though was the guy who yelled "you don't know what war is!". Well of course I do and that's why I'm against it! Maybe he's the one who doesn't know what war is. It's kinda like someone yelling "you don't know what cancer is" and they support cancer? He apparently not only doesn't know what war is, but
"he don't know what love is!"
