A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Damn, Trouble! One of these days I hope to get to an FMU gathering and meet you, sister!
George Jackson…my mind’s been blown reading Blood In My Eye. Which I had been looking for and found in the best possible way, at a radical May Day gathering at a park in Bushwick, on the table of some young comrades from a bookstore.
To think that he was able to write such an explosive and comprehensive revolutionary book *while in solitary confinement* explaining in great detail (with ample references) the cause of class and racial oppression and tactics and strategies to combat it, is, well, again, mind-blowing.
Thanks again for turning us on to that tune honoring him!
And salutations to all the Troubled…

Had intended to bike to K8’s gig last week at Mama Tried, but in the end was too wiped out from kids and a bit of the acid reflux wreaking some of its havoc. Hopefully they’ll be some more this summer, for which I’ll make one.

Speaking of Blowin' In The Wind: www.theguardian.com...
  10:16am Zinn The Mood:

I’m afraid the salient truth about governance in the USA is simply that, because it is an electoral system based on bribery, as long as that continues to be the way we get our politicians it will ensure that *both parties* can be counted on to be as depraved and craven as possible.
The only marginal difference being The Republican Party are a little more outward and obvious about their subservience to the interest of the 1%, corporate America, Wall St and the lobbies that elect them, while the Dems use that bluster, in the unending Kabuki theater that is American politics, to fundraise off of, appear as if they’re going to do something, make a public play in that direction but ultimately…do nothing.
Their purpose as elected officials is crystal clear: to acquire power in order to turn that into dollars. It’s a revolving door between politicians, lobbyists and “donors,” all greasing each other through, with the express purpose of getting richer while never fundamentally changing anything that will upset their boondoggle scheme.
Nothing sickens me more than hearing the media cover politicians after another of these seemingly endless, senseless tragedies claiming some outrage. It’s the *same exact scenario* over and over again. Media massacre and disaster porn, followed by pundit and politician indignation, with some residual probing into the victims and the perpetrator, then forgotten about a week or two later.
This country was founded on genocide, pillage and overbearing capitalism. All the present dysfunction is a matter of course. Not until the masses rise up in solidarity will things ever change; it’s been the only way.

@Andrew I think people like that are already more likely to be victims of gun violence or accidents, mass shootings are not the bulk of gun deaths, so people who think it doesn't affect them are correct.
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:30am Handy Haversack:

I don't know that the comments board is the best place for actual debate or reflection, but it struck me as crucial at an abortion rights rally a few weeks back when the speaker pointed out that waiting for Democrats to save anything was pointless -- those are people who negotiate and compromise with Christian fascists. There is no ideology among them that can respond to this kind of thing because their only ideology is to maintain their grip on power. Incremental change is an ever-receding mirage. Change is never going to come from the system that's in place now -- as Zinn says.

So shut t down.

I mean, by all means, write senators, vote, do all the things that are sanctioned as ways to inject some aspect of the people's will into the political process. But those will never accomplish any kind of systemic change. Only paralyzing the system with resistance stands a chance -- and it's a terrible, small chance. The odds of saving anything are so bad. But the fight to do so is all we have. So I guess we have to try.

Just shut it down. And if they want it to come back, it has to come back different.
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:30am Andrew Waterloo:

Guns are generally just accidents waiting to happen. Just watch how the damn things are handled by military and police personnel.
  10:32am Zinn The Mood:

In some ways I suppose I’ve been moving toward the same conclusions as Twain, Vonnegut and George Carlin. That the “damned human race, as Clemens put it, is too selfish, greedy and taken over by convenience to be disturbed enough to actually do something.
As a sort of activist it pains me to be moving this way. Because I know it’s going to take massive acts of civil disobedience, non-compliance, shut-downs, a general strike, combined with courageous acts of mockery and ridicule, subversive whistle-blowing and counteracting within government institutions, etc.
I just don’t see much of any evidence of a population who “have cell phones that make them pancakes a d rub their balls,” as Carlin put it, ever gaining the kind of collective solidarity in action to ruffle some feathers.
Btw, the Carlin HBO doc (so far, only watched Pt 1) was refreshingly amazing and a true presentation of his dissident, anarchist beliefs.
I don’t know.
What do folks think can really be done, honestly? Do you think politicians respond to letters better, or to organized groups of people bird-dogging them and shutting things down in a way that effects them personally?

Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:38am WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

Part of what we suffer from is decades anti-intellectualism. People just don't know any better and are taken advantage of in many ways. I thought of this last night as I watched our local news and a reporter was asking people what they thought about the shoot and any sort of gun control. One woman said that in Alaska, where everyone can carry anywhere, it's a lot safer. "I think they're onto something" she said with a smile on her face. Clearly, she tripped over a simple logical fallacy there.

It reminded me of the episode of All In The Family where Archie suggested in a teevee editorial that the solution for airline hijackings was to arm the passengers...except that I didn't laugh this time.

I don't really know what can be done. I've sort of given up, to be honest.

@βrian sorry to hear about Orange Man
  11:03am I was chastised:

By Facebook for reacting normally to a sick thread of guys crowing happily over the suspect that was set on fire at a gas station by an errant jolt of a taser alongside the gas pumps.

Seventy percent of his skin burned. Third degree. By stupid cowardly vicious cops. Who will get medals.

And they were celebrating it.

It’s a certain cohort of the population that relishes the viciousness. Yet they will ignore the sheriffs and cops that stood outside and did nothing more than hold back the crowd whilst their children were murdered.

Over ninety minutes. Cowards.

Cowardice. Acceptance. Selfishness. Greed. Theft. Corruption. Servicing the worst individuals largesse over the common good. Billionaires and merchants of death.

That is the America they don’t want acknowledged or taught in schools.

The real crime is that it happens so regularly no one can stop and think or focus on the horror.

How many have read the names? Looked upon the faces of the victims.

Buffalo. Uvalde.

Next!

Trouble, I heard the friendly buzzing that indicates that we're all about to die, so I think it probably did work.
Perhaps we should be running the emergency alert signal continuously in the background.

Another day where I thought I could sneak in a shower at 9:30 and start at 10, only to have my inbox blow up on me...gotta make some coffee. Loving the set. Disturbing set art, but necessary.

so sorry @ brian...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am McGroovey:

@WoodsOfNH (now Maine): Right. Anti-intellectualism is killing us.

Part of the solution to that (the user-side part) is for us not to be afraid to point out fallacious, illogical thinking when we encounter it in conversations with people.

But there's also the supply side problem. People's brains are filled with new stupidities every day, and they don't get a good start in life on recognizing it--especially in don't-say-gay zones.

Ugh, and they are digging up the streets near me so it's nonstop jackhammers and concrete saws. Please kill me. Or at least make me some coffee.

Busy morning but my PSA is that if you or yours can get to Houston tomorrow, bring a sign and/or your voice to Discovery Green downtown. 1 p.m. meet up with what I assume will be quite a few people. The NRA convention is just across the street. Come scream at a senator with me.
  11:23am Robm:

@Threemoins which is why i have up on cable news a while ago and listen to the BBC or the CBC, and maybe radio Australia just to hear what is going on in the rest of the world
