Dear Rev. Huckabee.

Never open your sanctimonious mouth ever again. Go find a nice place away from the modern media and hide in it. I do not want to hear your voice ever again.

I'm not saying this just because you're a total douchebag who wants to bring Church and State closer together into a pseudo-theocracy. I'm not saying this just because you're a Christian Pastor who is the governor of Arkansas. I'm saying this because you and Reality have never met.

Let us use for example two quotes from you that are less than fourty eight hours old that have recently hit the blogosphere. First, your discussion on the View. Now, Mike, I realize that you are not a fan of gay people, but go with me here. When you're asked to compare two minority groups, you should always listen to Admiral Ackbar, "It's a Trap". Your lovely quote however is,

HUCKABEE: It’s a different set of rights. People who are homosexuals should have every right in terms of their civil rights, to be employed, to do anything they want. But that’s not really the issue. I know you talked about it and I think you got into it a little bit early on. But when we’re talking about a redefinition of an institution, that’s different than individual civil rights.

BEHAR: Well, segregation was an institution, too, in a way. It was right there on the books.

HUCKABEE: But here is the difference. Bull Connor was hosing people down in the streets of Alabama. John Lewis got his skull cracked on the Selma bridge.

According to your logic, all we queers need do to get our rights is suffer a bit more. Tell you what, Mike. You go get a few people together to hose down the Castro while beating up people on Capitol Hill. Speaking as the voice of the queer community, you figure out that Queer Beat Off as it were, and then Monday morning you have Congress et. al. pass sweeping legislation to protect us.

And just so we're clear, fuckwit, EDNA did not pass. By your logic we should not be discriminated against as far as employment and housing go, but yet that is not a law of this country. Much less your home state which decided on November 4 to codify that children should grow up childless versus have two mommies or two daddies.

Now, I know I'm going all ontological on you, so let us return to a more simplier case of reality checking. On the Bill Bennet show you said,
HUCKABEE: The very people who voted for Barack Obama in California…also voted to sustain traditional marriage. I refuse to use the term, “ban same-sex marriage.” That’s not what those efforts did. They affirmed what is. They did not prohibit something. They simply affirmed something that which has and forever has existed.

Allow me to direct you to this picture showing the initial title and introductory text of the Proposition.

In short, please disappear from the limelight now for the good of humanity.

Fuck Off,

Many of you have noticed that I've slowed my updating here. Frankly, with all of the bs surrounding the strikeout of 2007, the fandom wars, and just crud; I find it hard to blog here. I do not appreciate my posts being blocked as not appropriate for age 18, because I discuss GLBTQ issues, and will not permit my voice to be silenced.

I have purchased the domain of www.bgkev.com, and have started blogging there. I hope that many of you will make the jump across the internet divide and meet me there.

News you won't hear on CNN

This guy, who's been in Guantanamo Bay for 6 years with no trial, no charges even filed against him.  This man, slashed his own throat, and the Commander of Guantanamo Bay claims this was an effort to "discredit the US forces." 

No, if I was held captive for 6 years without charges, trial, or anything, I would probably make an attempt to kill myself. 

So much for the land of the free home of the brave.  We're the land of the insane, home of the brutal. 

I hate this.  I hate this so much.  This is beyond wrong.  This violates human decency, not to mention our legal system. 

This is pure W wank.  I hope that we will be able to remove him and his ilk post 2008.

Dental Report

November 12th, 2007 (07:27 pm)

After 8 years of no dental insurance and therefore Kevin not taking care of himself we have

4 Cavities
4 Wisdom Teeth that are impacted that have to be removed.
And a cubic fuckton of tartar and plaque. 

On Dec 4th and Dec 11th respectively I have the ultrasonic cleansing and cavity work to do. 
Then in January / February I am getting my Wisdom Teeth Removed.

They did some "emergency cleaning work" and I am in so much mouth pain right now.

I've got the Reiki going, and some Mythbusters love. 

I think I am going to have a Tom Collins and try to find the loving embrace of Morpheus early tonight.

If any of you wouldn't mind employing your arts on my behalf tonight and tomorrow, it would be most appreciated. 

I have a plan, I just need help on surviving til the plan is complete.  As the icon says, there will be peace when I am done.

I have granted you all immunity.

October 30th, 2007 (08:53 am)

Seattle, WA -- In a mid-morning session, complete with checking his blog and reading work emails, Kevin has revealed a stunning announcement.

"Citizens of Livejournal, long time friends, newest members (here's looking at you, mcbulldawg ) I have an announcement to make.  All of you are hereby and forthwith granted full immunity for any past actions you may have been liable.  I trust that you will all use this clean slate to make your lives better for both yourself and for your community." 

When asked what authority he has to declare such immunity, Kevin deflected the question with a cunning use of the two most magical numbers in American History.  "Nine Eleven".  After further inquiries, Kevin stated he would confer with his legal team, but "For now, friends, please breathe deep in that new immunity granted air." 

Kevin took no further questions and returned to his mocha and morning blog reading.

Dear Yuletide Author

October 18th, 2007 (03:22 pm)

"The Republicans are worried that we can't pay for insuring an additional ten million children; they sure don't care about finding two hundred billion dollars to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where you gonna get that money? You gonna tell us lies, like you’re telling us today? Is that how you're gonna fund the war? You don't have money to fund the war or children—but you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President's amusement."

Let no one say that Democratic Representative from California Pete Stark didn't go down fighting on the SCHIP bill.

Zathras [userpic]

More Right-Wing Hatred

October 16th, 2007 (08:07 am)

Whether or not you agree with the SCHIP bill the President has vetoed, you do kinda have to agree that this President has no moral grounds to say we cannot do something on the ground of Fiscal responsibility.  As evidence, the entire Iraq conflict.  Thank you. 

However, there are somethings which while still legal, are shameful and immoral.  For instance, let's discuss the Graeme Frost incident.  Nancy Pelowski asked 12-year-old Graeme Frost to share his experiences under the SCHIP program.  Specifically he discussed how this program enabled him and his sister who were in a horrible car accident to get the medical treatment they needed.  He ended his speech by asking the President to sign the bill.

Now, here is what has happened.  Right-Wingers have started to attack the Frost Family.  Instead of focusing on the program, they are targetting the parent's income and harassing them.  Instead of stating they disagree for such and such reasons, they are trying to character assassinate a 12-year-old-boy.  Its frakking Cindy Sheehan all over again.  The video even discusses the leak of their address, so that the family can be harassed further.  And then there's Michelle Malkin, who apparently decided to refer to the Democrats as using a Child Shield, and further proceeded to harass the Frost family.  So the message is clear, feel free to speak your mind, but beware, the Right is far more interested in destroying your credibility than listening to your story. 

But don't take my word for it, listen to them.  Hear the story from their own mouths.  Look at the faces of those children in the hospital and tell me flat out they don't deserve governmental medical insurance because their Daddy makes over the Poverty Level.

So to our great and powerful media, I say the following:

1.) There's a fucking war on, a war we were deliberately lied into, a war where we are raping and killing men and women in Iraq without justification.  You want to do some reporting, why don't you look into that. 

2.) We are the only country in the first world that doesn't have Universal Healthcare.  While people may be for or against it, why don't you do some investigative reporting on the Canadian healthcare system, instead of just feeding us propaganda.  If Socialized Medicine is so evil, I want to see an expose on 60 minutes.  Until you do that, SHUT UP!

3.) And to you Christo-facists, I say this.  Your Deity said, "As you do to the least of these, so you do unto me."  How different are you from the Pharisees and the Sadducees of the New Testament?  If you do not recognize that we need to take care of each other in this life, how can you expect your Diety to take care of you in the next?

Trying to Understand the Right-Wing

October 15th, 2007 (03:50 pm)

Just so we're clear, I consider myself to be a progressive US Citizen.  I, in fact, do my best to keep myself educated about national politics.  This means that I've stopped watching the news, and started reading it online. 

So can someone please explain to me why the Right-Wing is going Apeshit over Gore winning the Nobel Peace Prize?  I don't understand why people aren't thankful that the international community understands that the US people are not our government.  Why do the right-wingers feel the need to continue to criticize a citizen who has done his best to represent the United States as a caring nation?  Especially when you consider that we are currently at war in Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention beating the war drums loudly for an attack on Iran. 

Why do people want to live in fear?  Why do we tear each other down instead of building up each other.  I have yet to see a GOP candidate congratulate Mr. Gore for his win, and I've yet to hear the White House make an official statement.  You would think they would attempt to seize any glory possible from a US Nobel Prize win.  Goodness knows we need as much credibility as possible these days. 

While I'm not endorsing any Democratic Candidate at this point, the one thing I've seen so far that's given me hope is a statement by Hillary Clinton.  "I'm not waiting for Jan 1, as soon as I'm elected, I'm sending friends and allies overseas to deliver the message that Cowboy Diplomacy is over."  (This from the Hardball from last week.)  I'm desperately waiting for the time when I can leave this country's borders and not be ashamed of my government's actions.

Conversations with Brade

Zathras feels: angry
Zathras hears: : The Clash ~ Should I Stay or Should I Go Now?

One of my newfound joys about leaving in Seattle happens to be the proximity of Canada.  I am very thankful that through friends, I have established a friendship with one such Canadian, Brade.  Brade reminds me much of me: we both love Movies far more than is healthy for us, we both have a fascination with Guinness, we both have a love hate relationship with the gay community; but most importantly, we have a deep fear for the United States of America.

There is not much in the way of freedom left in this country.  The patriot act, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Presidential Administration have made it so we spend our days in fear.  A man constantly afraid cannot be free.  A woman who fears daily for her life, will never have the freedom of mind to act.  So I guess the eternal question left to most progressives, is "Should I stay or should I go now?"

Oh no He didn't!

August 22nd, 2007 (09:45 am)

Zathras feels: bitchy

George Bush just cited the Vietnam fallout as reason why we cannot leave Iraq. 

Let that sink in for a bit.  The man who showed up several years late for one of the least successful U.S. liberation campaigns.   This conflict horribly mutilated many servicemembers of Bush's generation.   This conflict united an entire generation against the current establishment. Does anyone remember the Kent State Shootings?  I don't understand this.

President Bush lived and was aware during the Vietnam conflict.  He should know what a futile war will do to the American people, the Iraqii people, and by extension, the rest of the world.  I would like to say that we as a society learn from our mistakes, but its clear that Bush's generation has not.  This war is pointless, we will not win because we are not wanted. 

All this war is doing, is killing Coalition troops, predominately US soldiers, and is ruining the credibility of the United States.  I'm really tired of hearing that we removed Sadam's brutal regime, because from where I sit, where we see reports of mother's being raped by US troops, and senseless death of Iraqii civilians, we're doing the same thing Sadam did.  We're just doing it in the name of freedom. 

Edit:  As brought up to me by my dearest greeneyedpagan ; this isn't the act of a generation.  This is the act of the American Aristocracy, a group of individuals that survived the Vietnam-influenced generation, and have failed to learn these valuable lessons.  This is not an act of a generation.  Unfortunately, this will still be the war that covers my generation in blood.

Culture of Fear: A Rant

August 20th, 2007 (11:57 am)

Zathras is located at :: work
Zathras feels: annoyed
Zathras hears: : Tania~ Can't Keep Me Silent

Frustrations abound today.  First, thanks to the severe miscommunication with my Car Insurance and Loan Payment people; I had to run to the bank and setup a wire transfer.  If you have never had the honor of setting up one of these babies, let me tell you how it works.  You have to go to your bank, in person, fill out a form with banking codes (routing numbers?  WTF?) and sign off that you willingly send out this money.  This was all fine and dandy until I got the second page: Department of Homeland Security.  (Holy Gee!  WTF again!) 

Seeing the DHS logo, I immediately knew this form was going to be ass.  I find it slightly humorous that as an American Citizen, something with the title of Homeland Security neither makes me feel secure or patriotic.  I had to signify that I "was not a terrorist,  and did not knowingly wire money to terrorists."  Why do I need to certify before my banking institution that I am not a terrorist?  How is this going to actually keep us safe?  Do they honestly expect an actual terrorist to say, "Oh!  You got me! "  I think not.  This form does nothing, in my mind, other than reinforce the terrorists are everywhere mentality.  Its another chance for the fear-mongers to send another reminder that right now, in this very chair in this very bank, we are at war.  Orwell, you were just off a few years! 

Shakesville.com is a brilliant feminist & news site, which some of you may find interesting.  I don't agree with all of it, but unlike fox news, you know when you're getting actual news, and when you're getting commentary.  The Star-Telegram released an article on Thursday, that Law enforcement, emergency response and border control agencies have won greater access to the nation's spy satellites and other sensors to monitor U.S. territory.   This is a nightmare, a political quagmire.  As one may expect, there is concerns raised by the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists"There's the possibility of a recurrence of past abuses -- surveillance used against political opponents as in the Civil Rights era, the McCarthy era," by Steven Aftergood, the FAS's project director.  He continues, "There's also an incidental erosion of personal privacy in which one now has to assume that anywhere you are, you are subject to overhead surveillance by the government. And that is a change in what it means to be an American."  In short, now the federal government has deemed it nessecary to spy on US Soil.  The article indicates that the Department of Homeland Security will be managing the requests for satellite information.  Do I need to even voice why I think this is a bad idea?  Do I really need to explain how insecure the borders are?  How Civil Rights are being infringed upon by all branches of the DHS?  Does anyone else see this as an incarnation of the Orwellian Minipax?  Considering that wiretapping now only has to be approved by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, its easy to see why we should fear. 

Congratulations!  DHS!  You have successfully converted this one US Citizen from Secure in his homeland into a fellow afeared citizen.  Rest assured, though, its not the illegal immigrants, the homosexuals, or the foreigners I fear.  I fear the Government of the United States of America.  I am afraid for my constitutional rights, for my individual liberty and security.  I am afraid that in a few months off, we will be awash in another war based on fear.

Friday Quiz:

August 17th, 2007 (08:28 am)

Name one or more poems or songs or other media that really opened your eyes to reality or changed your views on life?

1.)The Last Herald Mage series by Mercedes Lackey
Holy Shite!  You mean there are other gay people?  What I feel is normal?

2.)Mysterious Ways ~ U2
Really Codified a lot of my problems and beliefs about humanity and the divine. 

3.)Before you were Born ~ Toad and the Wet Sprocket
Yeah, I had a crummy childhood, and yeah I can still feel all torn up when I listen to this album.  That being said, I think starting to listen to this music was one of those things that started to clear the air for me, getting the emotion out of the way, and really allowed me to dig into myself and fix the dumb miserable mental tapes that I played that were ruining me. 

4.)Chelsea Dagger ~ The Fratterellis. 
Its not so much the song as where I was.  This was the themes song of my trip to Ireland.  That song represents to me that no matter what, no matter where, as long as I honestly fight and work for something I can have it.  Plus, its got cross-dressing prostitutes and that makes me happy!

In a more equilitarian society.

As many of you know, I've finally made the jump from being a NOCC-bitch to actually finishing my degree and working as an Engineer. 

Now working in a NOCC environment takes both l33t computer skillz and the ability to navigate the Good 'Ole Boy network.  You have to be able to prove that you are good enough not only to your boss, but to your coworkers, and to any of the executives that will believe that you have the skills to advance.  Being that this is purely on a position open enviornment, and that my experience was limited to the Texas, I got further than most that were non-white.  That being said, my obvious sexual orientation still held me down the ranks a bit.  (I could go into a rant about how I did tier 3 work on tier 1 pay.  But we won't go there.)

Zathras feels: amused
Zathras hears: : Not So Far Away ~ Wideawake

Just watched a fascinating program from BBC 3, "The C Word: How we came to swear by it."

Seattle: Let's take a trip back to racist times at the Zoo

August 8th, 2007 (02:44 pm)


I moved to the North in hopes that there would be a more progressive environment. 
Instead, I find that we can now visit a people's culture in the zoo, right next to the Hippos. 
Because that's where Tribes from Africa belong.

Damn... and my state just treats them like shit.
