‘political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.

Tonight for art.
What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave.
In this way, the police state with all of its trappings—from surveillance cameras, militarized police, SWAT team raids, truancy and zero tolerance policies, asset forfeiture laws, privatized prisons and red light cameras to Sting Ray guns, fusion centers, drones, black boxes, hollow-point bullets, detention centers, speed traps and abundance of laws criminalizing otherwise legitimate conduct—is little more than a front for a high-dollar covert operation aimed at laundering as much money as possible through government agencies and into the bank accounts of corporations.
The rationalizations for the American police state are many. There’s the so-called threat of terrorism, the ongoing Drug War, the influx of [undocumented] immigrants, the threat of civil unrest in the face of economic collapse, etc. However, these rationalizations are merely excuses for the growth of a government behemoth, one which works hand in hand with corporations to profit from a society kept under lockdown and in fear at all times.

I asked her if I could hold her hand, she said yes. I later asked her if I could kiss her, she said yes, and proceeded to express her gratitude for me asking consent. I can’t even begin to grasp how perfect last night turned out to be.

This week’s episode was deep man.
this show is everything
In another episode of Mississippi Politics: Which conservative can out conservative the other conservatives? — more affectionately known as How stupid can you get? to some of us Mississippi natives — Governor Phil Bryant is, per the usual course, using the immediate immigration influx of in-need children from Latin American to ignore the greater issue of US imperialism in an attempt to make his own party look better than the other party. In doing so he conveniently ignores the fact that our government is the reason there is an influx of these children in the FIRST place. Obama, just like Bush (See Iraq & Afghanistan), does not know when to stay out of other nation’s political processes because it jeopardizes the monopoly of American business abroad. Nonetheless, it is amazing that it is 2014 and the Mississippi citizenry, a gross reflection of the broader US in the matters of international relations, doesn’t know shit about US history, as in people still do not know what a “Banana Republic” is (no, not the clothing store). The sheer ignorance of it helps explain why so few seem to know or care that the reason we have an influx of immigrants (as a Honduran myself, and a human being, I welcome them) is BECAUSE our government supported and was tacit in the Honduran Coup of ‘09, propping up a violent rightwing government as US foreign policy has done all over Latin America for decades. Phil Bryant is about as knowledgeable as a brick in these matters, yet you would never know it because he panders to the lowest common denominator of the US political process — the ultra conservative, a demographic abundant in Mississippi.
