hxxps:// around 2:30 and then the Jason Bourneing

hxxps:// around 14:00 or so it gets interesting, they split antifa from the idiots and I avoid getting trapped behind the barricade because I'm not an idiot. Later I'mleading the "whose streets?" and you can hear my voice crack. There's also a Jesus Centrist.

not arrested not dead

Any fun stories?

About 13-20 alt right fuckwits beat us to the common and were established very close to the stage before we got there. The stage was extremely loud so there wasn’t a ton of back and forth during the actual program, but they tried to chant over the speakers. Fun fact: “booger people” maps well to “build the wall” which is great when you’re trying to muddle someone else’s chant.

The main body of the women’s march left and it was just the Nazis behind their police barricade and antifa behind another police line and me and like five other people in the middle. I led some chants, which is a dumb thing to do on a sore throat. As the idiots were being escorted to the trains, one of the antifa kids did something to catch a case and everything got real fucking tense. Black bloc lined up linked elbows and the cops blocked off the entire width of the street (which involved some yelling at me for being offsides) and nobody was saying anything so I marched up and down the line getting people to yell. There’s video. Then cop cars appeared at the bottom of the hill and my spider sense went off, so I Jason Bourne’d the fuck outta dodge.

Afterward I checked the bars the idiots usually frequent, but they weren’t at either. It probably was unwise to check by myself, but I still had some crazy left.

There’s video of some of it, if people want to see. Only one arrest.

I'm gonna disagree, because they're fighting for THEIR future. A future full of white babies and prosperity gospel and coal fire electricity forever and ever and nuts to anyone who disagrees. They're fighting for a DEAD future, sitting there with the paddles refusing to let go while everyone else in the room slowly backs away and the time of death has been discretely noted on a pad for the authorities. They are fighting a STUPID fight, one that's already lost but that doesn't mean they can't kill a future worth having in their rage and denial.

And yeah, there are some among our enemies who know that their future is dead, but they believe they can rebuild it from the ashes of the Coming Aftermath if they just prep right. That when the fucker finally burns down but good this time, they can make SURE we don't let in any smudgy brown people or queers or mooslems or whatever they choose to represent The Wrong Kinds Of People. If they just stock their bunkers and garages and outhouses properly and hold onto their guns and ammo they can outlast the folks with the Wrong Values and dance on our corpses. But saying that out loud would be as unthinkable as actually shooting up a Synagogue yourself, when you could merely imply that Jews are responsible for every evil in the world instead.

They say you become the things that you fight and it's true in a sense, but you can take control of it, if you overcome the fear. There is something you have in common with your enemy, when you know it you can prevent it from becoming a slippery slope and turn it into another barricade.

I have this in common with the nazis: I believe the future is in danger. I believe the future is worth fighting for.

When you don't admit you're in a war you can't understand why the other side is fighting, can't define victory conditions, can't mount a proper attack or defense. When you admit to yourself that the culture wars are a kind of war and you'd better get your head around that fact, things become clear.

I believe in things other than what I have in common with my enemy. I believe the future is worth investing in. I believe the present is worth investing in. I believe the past is worth recording and dissecting and understanding.

I believe the future is worth a 70% marginal tax rate on the wealthy. I believe the future is worth paying teachers a living wage and covering classroom supplies. I believe the future is worth jackhammering fatbergs and waking up at three in the morning to make sure that beeping really is a false alarm.

I believe the future is worth belaying the nuclear counterstrike, worth punching every tank, worth decades of fruitless peace negotiations. I believe the future is worth rebuilding and repaving and reinforcing and reinventing, worth the labor and expense and materials to make it happen. I believe the future is worth sorting my trash and recycling.

I never wish for serenity. And knowing that, I should not be surprised that I never get it. But even when I reflect on this omission on my part, I never seem to change my wishing ways.

I see serene people in my life, I know that it is a possible thing. But the people I see who are content bring up bile in the back of my throat: the wealthy, the lazy, the willfully ignorant. Nothing could be further from my heart's desires than to settle for *this*, to set down my megaphone and shake the tension out of my fists, to decide that this is good enough. I am a malcontent, and I know it will kill me in the end.

I never wish for an end to the fight. There are days I cannot even imagine what an end would look like. Other days it's all to clear to me: a boot on the face forever and ever, we all love Big Brother, a tiny upper crust making merry on the backs of billions as the world burns. And to say that all the danger is external would be a lie, I know too that I have my inner struggles, my own dragons to slay.

I wish for a better sword. I wish for a stronger shield. I wish for a pitcher of water and more ammunition, for you at my side at the end of the world. Forever.

You want to let folks know I caught a 3 day ban for referring to Trump as The White Trash Hitler?

Apple Talk / Not Today, Air Conditioner
« on: December 27, 2018, 09:01:49 pm »
One time I was moving out of one apartment and into another one just across the street (there were three apartment complexes all bunched together in this little patch of land just outside of the high property tax college town we orbited). My eldest was a wee little thing in a stroller and I wasn't yet pregnant with #2. It was a nice day and I was free to do some moving work while my husband was out at work.

For some reason, I had gotten the idea in my head that I had to deal with the air conditioner in our old unit. Looking back I can't imagine how I got there, I don't think we bought the fucker and we sure as hell didn't need it at the new place, but here I was sure that I had to get the thing out of the wall before we handed over the keys. There was one of those holes high in the wall for the AC to sit in, the base of it at about 6 feet. Not too high for me to reach, but high enough that it's above my head. And I shuffled the unit out ok, and started to pull it out before I realized that no, I did not have this. And the weight shifted forward and I put myself in the way, the front of the air conditioner mushed into my face and my arms barely holding the thing in place, the edge of its little alcove in the wall the only thing preventing me from losing control of the situation completely.

I did not have this. I could not hold this fucker at the angle I had it. I could not readjust without losing control even further and everything crashing to the ground. So I froze. And it felt like forever standing there, baby sitting quietly in the stroller just in the other room, phone perched above her and out of reach. There was no way out. But I could not stay. I am not going to die here with an air conditioner on my face. So I shifted my weight and pulled it forward and let the fucker fall, keeping my toes out of the way. And I controlled the fall enough that it didn't break and I moved on with my life.

No matter how hopeless the situation, sometimes you just have to decide that you are not going to die here with an air conditioner on your face.
