political statement

This must be some kind of Political statement since that’s what the portuguese government stands for if you can read what they say between the lines…

I hate all this corruption and power abuse I mean, they were hired by us, they must not forget that. If you make the politics according to corporations then you are in a fascism. As plain as that!

Shirley Chisholm 1972: A compilation of clips from Shirley Chisholm’s speeches during her presidential campaign in 1972

“My greatest political asset, which professional politicians fear, is my mouth, out of which come all kinds of things one shouldn’t always discuss for reasons of political expediency”

I love it. The message is incredibly powerful.

“The installation consists of hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling, pointing downwards. The hovering, massive cloud of scissors alludes to distant fear, looming violence and worrisome uncertainty. The performer sits beneath the countless sharp blades of the scissors, and performs an on-going simple task of mending”

Delegate Eleanor Norton (of DC) reacts to possible government shutdown

Wow … that was fierce … she told it like it was though … never underestimate a powerful Black Woman especially after you make her mad …

SOPA- I CAN’T HEAR YOU by *ChadRocco

To quote the artist’s description: 

Meet Lamar Smith, representative from Texas, and Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary.

As Chairman he can kill any bill he doesn’t like by denying it a hearing while giving priority to the bills he wants to pass, Like SOPA. 

While addressing the massive outcry over SOPA he stated that: 

“It’s a vocal minority. Because they’re strident doesn’t mean they’re either legitimate or large in number. One, they need to read the language. Show me the language. There’s nothing they can point to that does what they say it does do. I think their fears are unfounded.”

Above is a list of people that have pointed at the language, including law professors and computer experts. 

You have a civil war among video game companies, and the successful boycott of a company. How do you ignore that?

It’s an election year. This November. Whatever happens, Texas, please kick this guy out of office.

Anderson Cooper 360: Congresswomen Michele Bachmann’s Shocking Comments about History and Slavery.

Wow. Seriously, this is not a leader. As a voter my mindset is, if you do not understand, firmly, how this country was formed and shaped over time, then you are not fit to represent me as a citizen, because that means you are not qualified to lead me into the future. Yet this woman was elected. Sometimes I believe these women are only being heard because they are attractive. Bachmann, O'Donnell, Palin, all considered by the public to be attractive, all given office, yet none have a firm grasp on history, minority issues, current issues, or the law. 

The way I dresses not a political statement!

I’m sick of different groups approaching me on different days just because of the clothes I wear.
There are so many charities, political parties and societies that only choose to talk at me when I’m wearing certain items of clothing. A lot of these groups who try to present themselves as “accepting” and “non-judgmental”, are using stereotypes to pick who they approach.

It just frustrates me because the way I present myself has nothing to do with my political and social views, it’s just my mood and care factor. If I’m lazy I wear jeans, if I happen to have gone to the effort of shaving my legs this week, I might bother wearing a dress.

Just leave me alone.
