dear cynthia nixon

please try to be more eloquent in your phrasing next time. it might (*might*) help me to have less of a headache later.

still, A for effort.

dear ohnotheydidnt

to 90+% of you stfu.
you don't get to define or police someone else's sexuality.
and you apparently lose at comprehension. because the part where she said her feelings were about herself --- are about herself.
apparently she wasn't clear enough for you that letting zealots frame the dialogue wasn't acceptable. so you had to blame her in case the zealots twisted her words to frame hateful logic into their dialogue.
alas, i know it will not be for the last time.

while i was away, mail collected:

i'm not sure how nor why, but my pregnancy place seems to think i should be wanting to make babies. they think this so much that they will give me a "free pregnancy test and sonogram". they will also give me free ritz carlton spa massages. and, once i am in hypothetical labor, an ambulette from my door to the hospital. plus, if i deliver on the first of the month, i can win a $500 baby gap gift certificate. how do i know all this? they've sent me post cards on more than one occasion. and, while i love getting mail that doesn't ask me for money, i'm not sure this qualifies. oh, the beauty of direct marketing!

russ feingold* also sent me a letter. from middleton, wi to brooklyn, ny, he not only asks for money, but also to send back two form letters: one to the prez and one to the democrats.

read the letters here )

and them some ramblings )

also, i got more address labels, and envelope stikcers,too. yay for mailing fun! and a "keep abortion legal"sticker, if anyone wants it, let me know.

*wi state senator....mailing "not printed or mailed at tax payer expense"... wrting on behalf of the progressive patriots fund.

howard dean sent me a survey earlier last week. it was supposed to be for the democrats in "the Brooklyn area", whatever that means. they want grassroots support for "our Party's agenda".

dean's letter was addressed "dear fellow democrat".
now, i could pretend that this is a whole family-name confusion thing. (my grandmother, up until she died, had been democratic chairperson for our region of Wisconsin.) but that would be an awful lot of pretending.

i made sure to ammend the survey to state that i'm not a democrat. never have been. never will be. damnit.

the survey didn't ask my race. or my sex. or my gender. or my age. or my date of birth.
maybe they already Know.

also starkly lacking was any mention of Queer related issues. well, maybe if you want to stretch, you could say "civil rights and liberties" cover that. but you'd have to really, really stretch.
i've already amended the survey. marked it up.

seriously, the democrats want my vote but they refuse to acknowledge my existence? hell to the mother-fucking no. they couldn't even pretend to give a damn. this, ladies and gentlemen, is the party who wants to be your party. this is the party that wants to pretend it's different from the republican party. this is the party who doesn't really give a damn.

maybe it's better they don't give off false hopes and illusions. look at what they like to do with abortion: acknowledge it and sweep it under that antique heirloom inherited from great great grand-daddy rug.

i was supposed to return the survey within 72 hours with my check or money order.
it hasn't yet self-destructed and i'm not even including 2 pennies, lest they get any ideas.

but i have a letter pending. )

the subject line reads: American Girl teams with pro-abortion, pro-lesb--n group

(because we all know LESBIAN is a 4-letter word.)
and OMG our girls might learn about their bodies! and "safe and effective birth control!" we can't possibly even consider allowing that, now can we?
heavens, no. and allow them to question their sexuality? well, now, we must lock them up and hide the key.

or not.
i am the italics.
American Girl teams with pro-abortion, pro-lesbian group
Dear Friend of the Family,

Possibly some of you have daughters who play with the American Girl dolls or read their books because only *daughters* play with dolls. You may even be thinking about buying a doll or books for Christmas because *everybody* celebrates xmas with full consumer style. Well, it turns out American Girl (owned by Mattel) is partnering with a group called Girls Inc.warning- they are of the devil to sell a bracelet, the "I Can" band, which financially supports Girls Inc. Seventy cents of every purchase goes to Girls Inc. The band is sold on the American Girl webpage with a large ad and a link to the Girls Inc. webpage. In addition, the webpage says American Girl is giving $50,000 to Girls, Inc.
there be information here )
and you thought target was bad!

Court Strikes Down Equal Benefits law

Manhattan A state appeals court yesterday struck down the city's equal benefits law, which barred thecity from doing businses with companies that provide benefits for employees' spouses but not for their gay* domesetic partners. The Supreme Court's Appelalte Division ruled 5-0 that the statute, Local Law 27 of 2004, was illegal because it "runs afoul" of state laws by imposing more conditions on competetive bidders for munincipal contracts. AP.

* i don't remember the "gay" part being inherent for the domestic partner part.

EDIT to let mayor bloomberg know what an ass awesome leader he is, call 311* (in NYC) 212-new-york (639-9675 - outside new york).
mail: hon m.r. bloomberg
city hall
nyc, ny 10007
i'd give you the email/website but nyc.gov is currently requesting i "log in", even to "contact them". 311 has no idea how i can address this, except writing a letter and sending it usps.

*be prepared to have to call back if the person is a bit too...special... to understand your request.

dear live journal:

NO, i am not going to participate in your pseudo-anarchistic not-one-damn-dime shit.

i will continue to support my local businesses on that day. most of them share my sentitment about the king "presidente".

i will continue to strongly dislike the president and his war and his hate-filled policies.

if i'm going to do anything, i will do something*; i will not intentionally do nothing.

if doing nothing for one day does something for your soul, uh, good luck with that.

but count my un-sorry ass out.

*definition of something remains to be seen. considering my ass is broke and i presently have to struggle to stay awake for more than 12 hours at a time and am still hacking up a lung or two, my protestations will probably be on hold thursday but will continue as they have prior.
