Atlanta megachurch pastor arrested for assaulting daughter

The Raw Story: Controversial Atlanta megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar Jr. has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his 15-year-old daughter, according to the Atlanta Journal andConstitution. The “prosperity gospel” adherent has been charged with simple battery, family violence and cruelty to children after an altercation in which he reportedly grabbed his daughter by…

Justice can happen quickly or it could take a long time. May all men and women who abuse others have justice served. I am so sick and tired of these religious zealots spewing their garbage and terrorizing women.

The Sound of Silence

Lying is done with words and also with silence. ~~~ Adrienne Rich

I found this article at Fire Dog Lake and it resonated with my life. Catholic Hierarchy's Lack of Response To Abuse of Women by "Project Prevention" We live in a Man's world. All major religions were created by a man, Not a woman. Women are second class citizens in religion and life. The sad part of this whole mess, is women who claim to be Women's Right's Advocates side with men many times. Which keeps the vicious cycle of oppressing women, in a forward motion.

My participation in the Occupy movement, opened my eyes to where the real problem is in this country and the world. Many people are mad at Wall Street and Big Banks. But it is individual people, in these organizations, that have contributed to destroying others, not the organization itself. Life is full of these people and they all don't work on Wall Street or in Big Banks. They could be your father, brother, or women's rights activist sitting next to you.

The abuse of women problem, starts at home and within, most religious organizations around the world. Anyone  who believes a woman should not be paid the same as a man, for the same job, is a woman abuser. Any religion that believes a man cannot date or talk to women, before they make some big commitment, is an extremely abusive organization and should be protested. Anyone that believes, women should not have, absolute choice over their body and decision's, is a woman abuser.

We are not going to win the War on Women, until women stop participating in other women's abuse and stop being silent about it. People get themselves involved in situations, without getting all the facts and contribute to the oppression of women, when they think they are helping them. Silence is not an option when it comes to advancing the women's rights movement. You must stand up and speak out.

I saw these little punk cowards picking on defenseless people and I knew they needed to come to justice.  ~~~ Nick Ring UFC Fighter

Occupy Rallies At Democratic Convention

The day started at the Civic Center, aka 'Freedom Plaza' and proceeded with a march to 5th and E Street in the gas lamp district of downtown San Diego. Here occupiers put down soap boxes and stood on top of them, reading of events that happened a 100 years ago on the same corner. How the Wobblies who fought for free speech and equal rights, were persecuted, beaten and prisoned by the police. I talked about how women deserve equal rights, equal pay, equal say and the right to choose what to do with their bodies. Others spoke about the NDAA bill recently passed, that banks got bailed and people did not.

We rallied on the corner for an hour and then marched over to Children's Park, where we were greeted by many people. We rested for a short time and regrouped to march over to the convention center. There were about 150 plus people that participated in the rally at the convention center where the Democratic Convention was being held. We chanted 'Shits fucked up, shits fucked up and bullshit.' People attending the meeting were in awe of the amount of people that showed up for the occupy movement. Another chant was 'Democrats come out we have something to talk about.'

One man did come out and talk to us. He said he was running for the 50th district and wanted us to know he supported us and has even attended some of our rallies and functions. He said 'there are al ot of people inside that are for you, but there are also a lot of people inside that are against you.' He said that he would fight for what we stand for and want out of our politicians. Many other people gave us thumbs up and talked to us. Overall people seemed to be receptive of our messages and what we stood for. Many also talked about their concern for the NDAA bill.

After the rally the group marched through gas lamp on 5th street up to Balboa Park for lunch, GA, breakout sessions and dinner. The food was awesome and people had showed up all the way from Occupy Napa. A bus load of about fifty people showed from Occupy LA and many other occupations had occupiers present. It was a successful day and showed the solidarity between groups in the Southern California area. The Democrats have now been woken up in California that Occupy is still here. We have great concerns about what is going on in Congress and we are not going away.

Is Sarah Palin Planning To Run For President

It has been quiet on the Palin Ponderosa, over the past year. I have only posted a few articles about this cat lady, who spewed a speech of 'I love you America and I am your girl' at CPAC. Over at Politicususa, Leah Burton says, Sarah Palin's game is still on. If you thought Sarah Palin had faded into the wild blue yonder, you are wrong. The Cat lady is back and ready to attack the good old boys with her sharp claws and Alaskan drawl. So watch out Romney, Gingrich and Santorum the cat lady has returned and she is ready to take you all down!

I took my eyes off this broad and truly thought there was no way she could become President. But it looks like all the male GOP scumbags running for President, don't look that promising and the GOP strategist think they need to bring Sarah Palin back into the limelight. The God loving, newspaper reading, foreign affairs expert and economic wizard who lives up in the great state of Alaska, might still be a viable candidate! Yikes I say, that is a scary thing. Run for the hills this lady will take away all women's rights.

Mitt Romney Targets Poor For His Own Agenda of Fame

Are the poor the only ones that use drugs? No! The rich and middle class also use drugs that are legal and illegal. Mitt Romney, who has lost the last three primaries to another right wing wacko, Rick Santorum, needs to save face to put his un-American campaign back on track, was asked, should welfare recipients be drug tested. Well good old mormon most honest Romney said, 'Yes.'

Romney, whose religion bans you from drinking caffeine, that is located in products such as coke, pepsi, and other sodas, also owns companies that sell the same poison, they say is forbidden. What a concept, tell your congregation something is a no no, but sell it to the rest of the world and make money off it. This is called being a fanatical hypocrite, and many politicians, corporations and churches do it everyday! The pharmaceutical companies get people hooked on 'legal' drugs everyday and destroy peoples lives. Drugs that are just as deadly or worse than illegal drugs. What a weird world we live in!

So Mitt Romney wants to drug test welfare recipients, who already are oppressed by the 1% and churches that convert people into numb, followers of others deranged ways of living. If Romney wants to test those on welfare, I say lets test all politicians, corporate CEO's, the 1% and well why in the heck don't we just say all people should be tested and make this a fair deal to all Americans. What do you think about that Mr. I am such a godly, good, great, goon of being perfect, honest and the right idiot to be President and tell Americans what they can and cannot do.

Free Speech Fight Still 'Alive' In San Diego 100 Years Later

Do you really believe America is the Land of the Free? Not even speech is free anymore. It comes with a price tag, go directly to jail if you don't obey. Wednesday Feb 8, protesters from Occupy San Diego gathered on all four corners at 5th and E Street in downtown San Diego's, gas lamp district around 5pm. Standing on top of soap boxes like the Wobblies did a 100 years ago, speaking about the same injustices that continue today.

These injustices are police harassment, intimidation, corruption in politics, the banking industry, how corporations are not people and should not be allowed to put their money into the political arena. How Corporations should pay their fair share of taxes and provide a living wage to employees, not minimum wage. This problem starts at home where people are taught how to behave and treat others Things don't change, when the system stays the same, or when people stay the same.

At 6pm local labor unions and other groups joined Occupy San Diego. The SDPD blocked off 5 Street at F Street and detoured traffic, so we could gather in the middle of the street. The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, AFL-CIO headed this event. The Labor Council is a coalition of 133 local unions that represent more than 192,000 working families in the region. Lorena Gonzalez the Secretary-Treasurer and CEO of this council was the first speaker and reved up the audience.

Two young men, one playing the banjo and the other a guitar, played intermittently through the event, bringing fun and lightness with song, to the evening. Many speakers spoke about, the violence that happened a hundred years ago on the same day. This year was more subdued, with only one man placed in handcuffs for not dispersing, when asked to by the SDPD.  The event ended with the Women's Occupy Occupella singing, 'Occupy your mind,' 'Vote, vote, vote your rights,' and a couple other songs.

It was a successful evening, ending with a young man mic checking, the occupy movements grievances through a bull horn, with people on all corners repeating what he was saying. At this point about ten cops stood right in front of the protesters mic checking on the southwest side of the street. People of all ages and racial ethnicity's attended the event and left feeling satisfied with what they heard and participated in.

A few news channels showed up, but not that many. It takes citizen journalist these days to tell the real stories. This evening was another indication occupy is here to stay and will stand up and fight for their freedom to speak out about the gross injustices in this country and around the world. Freedom is not free and probably never will be. Don't let the SDPD, or any police officer intimidate you, not to protest and use your voice for the good for all.

Sarah Palin Still 'Fooling' People

Three years and eleven months ago Sarah Palin told Alaskans, she was pregnant. This news was shocking to many people, including her husband that slept in the same bed, her children, friends and staff that worked for her, as Governor of Alaska. There were no signs of pregnancy. No bump in the stomach, no doctors visits, no pictures, nothing. In April of 2008 Sarah Palins Five Day Pregnancy.

I campaigned for President Obama in 2008. My first time getting involved in politics, all because of Sarah Palin. In her first speech to the GOP, I knew this lady was a liar! More than a liar, a dirty player in the political arena. Sarah Palin, who said rape victims, should pay for their own rape kits and then lied about saying that, is not a woman that represents me at all. I have no respect for this scoundrel.

To be honest I truly thought this broad would be hung out on a line for all her lies, but I have learned differently. It is obvious she is backed by big money and in bed with the Koch Brothers. Sarah Palin is again being honored as Woman on the year 2012 by Clare Booth Luce, as a woman, others should look up to. Sarah Palin has fooled the world and will continue to, until the money wagon stops delivering to her bank account and her bed buddies don't get laid anymore!

Review of The 1st Occupy San Diego Summit

Yesterday I walked from the civic center up to Balboa Park, to the Centro Cultural de la Raza. The round building use to be a water tower, now painted with bright colors and used as a cultural arts building for the community. Inside the building was a commemorative of the Wobblies, who in 1912 stood on free speech boxes, on the corners of downtown San Diego. The first corner they stood on was 5th and E street. This coming Wed. Feb. 8th at 6pm there is a reenactment of the 1912 free speech fight. (Click for info here).

A 100 years later, a new free speech group has entered the arena, standing up and speaking out against the injustices and broken governmental system in America. They are called Occupy. Yesterday commenced the first Summit of Occupy San Diego. Workshops were held inside and outside the Centro Cultural de la Raza. Lunch was served at noon, with donated pizza's, salads, baked goods, fresh fruit, sandwiches, cookies, goodies and lots more. The day long event of workshops and food was FREE!

Where can you go to workshops and eat for free these days? Nowhere! Speakers donated their time, because they believe in the occupy movement and want to share their knowledge. People like Judy donate food, especially healthy food, because they believe Big Ag, Big Pharm and Big Insurance are the problem. These big companies feed crap to the poor, then the poor take pills to help the crap digest and when their body systems breakdown, they need insurance they do not have to see a doctor. A viscous circle of abuse by big business.

The Saturday GA (General Assembly) was held at 1pm inside the cultural building. About a 100 people circled around the moderator and speakers. A mic was used, that many from the occupy movement feel is not needed. But when the group grows they need to think about a few things. When speaking, having people to your back does not work well. They cannot hear you or see what you might be presenting, so they could miss out on important things you might have to say. Also many people have hearing problems and when a mic is not used or properly used the same would be true.

The GA began with comments from the audience of what they look forward to in the occupy movement. Big events that are coming up are, March 1st when students plan on walking out of classrooms at colleges around the country. May 1st when the 99%, walk out of their job for the day to show the 1%, they don't own anyone. Raul Carranza and his continued efforts to make the medical field wake up, to his need for a 24/7 care taker and all others in his situation. Creating more summits for the general public.

People talked about sustainability and how we can make that happen. A FM Radio Station that is occupy related. Many people talked about the need for outreaching to the public on who and what we are about. Brian talked about the need to be reflective and develop strong individuals, with a whole lot of internal strength. Hex talked about systemic change inside and outside the system. Dave talked about the need for yard signs, flyer's, and shirts with occupy on them. Martha about a cultural celebration and to think globally and the importance of a living wage.

It was a day full of ideas, learning, making new friends and eating good food. If anyone thinks the occupy movement is going away, they are wrong. If anyone thinks the occupy movement is about destruction and violence they are wrong. It is about people coming together creating a new community, that helps, cares and shares with each other. It is a movement that is strong and is developing strong individuals that will stand up and fight back against injustice and corruption at all levels. 'We are occupy, we are never gonna die, when you try to take our stuff, were only gonna multiply.'

Why Are Men Running Women's Non-Profits?

Did you know, men have greater clarity on how women's bodies work? Wow what a concept! Guess what else men know, how to run women's non-profit organizations? Who in the blank is better apt at running a women's based organization, a man or women? Well if you'd ask me, I would say a women! But that's not what the PPFA, Pro-Life Action League believes. Anti-Abortion activist Eric Scheidler is their President and was featured on the Young Turks broadcast last night. Boy is he an idiot.

Last night Eric Scheidler told Ana Kasparian, the co-host of the show 'Young Turks' that Planned Parenthood does not do breast cancer screenings. That is why the Susan B. Komen foundation will no longer support Planned Parenthood, because they want their money to go directly to helping women. Do you know how many breast screenings Planned Parenthood does a year? In 2010, they did 1.6 million cancer screenings.

It is mind boggling that a women's organization such as the Susan G. Komen, or any women's organization would allow a man to be president or in charge of making decisions. Not only making decisions, but to be able to tell women what they can and cannot do with their bodies, life or any aspect of a women's life. This is my body and life, no man is ever going to tell me what to do with any aspect of my life. Ever! I have been dealing with a very abusive situation for at least ten years regarding a man who lied to me.

Men like Eric Scheidler should not be making decisions about what a woman, can and cannot do with her body. All men need to be barred from any decision making regarding abortion. It is up to a woman, what her choice will be regarding the situation. People that want to rear their ugly hands, mouths and roar like lions telling women abortion is wrong. Need to sit down and shut up and take care of their own matters. Hey Eric you made a big mistake. Time for you to be fired or resign!

Did Sarah Palin Throw Newt Under the Bus

I started blogging in 2008 when Sarah Palin was selected as John McCain's running mate. It was her first speech, that eloquent bag of bull crap, she spewed all over the cameras, that did it for me. I can tell when a person is full of horse manure. Sarah Palin did not fool me, but she has many people around the country. The lady who read newspapers from around the globe, thought Africa was a country not a continent, was schooled by a couple Canadian comics and best lie she told the American public her fake pregnancy story about 'Trig.' Anyone that believes Sarah Palin gave birth to 'Trig' is stupid!

We all have been deceived in our lives. Some of us a little more naieve than others. But if you believe anything Sarah Palin says, you will sooner or later be thrown under the Palin bus. I thought Sarah Palin had fizzled from the limelight, gone from the cameras and back to her little abode in Wasilla, Alaska. But it looks like Newt Gingrich might have secured a spot for her in his cabinet, if he is elected President. That is, if Sarah Palin has not tainted his bid for the Presidential election. We all know that Sarah Palin has a way to squash people and Presidential runs.

I have not been keeping tabs on Sarah Palin, because to be honest, I was sick and tired of hearing about her celebrity family and their desperate house wife type reality show life, they all live in. I would never take Sarah Palin serious, consider her to be a viable candidate for any public office or even a dog catcher position. The lady is loopy and full of herself. What needs to be exposed about Sarah Palin is, she is NOT the mother of 'Trig' and she needs to be held accountable for all her mischief as the Governor of Alaska. Sarah Palin is a farce!

A Rally and March for Raul Carranza

Who deserves 24/7 health care? Raul Carranza! Why does he have to fight to get it? Because of the corrupt health care system we live under. Raul is a young man with dreams. He was attending UCLA, until his health care provider informed him he was no longer eligible for 24/7 health care, because he is considered a sub-acute patient, not acute. Raul has multiple sclerosis and has never walked a day, in his life.

Wheel chair bound, not able to feed himself, clothe himself, bath himself, or talk without the use of a computerized mechanism, Raul still has a brain that functions, even when his body doesn't. This young man is brave and willing to fight the medical system, to obtain a 24/7 home health care nurse. Not only does Raul have MS, so does his younger brother who also is wheel chair bound.

Yesterday there was a rally and march for Raul that started at the Statehouse, located on Front Street. Many great speakers spoke about the broken medical system. One Home Health worker who has worked in the industry for 25 years, talked about how she made minimum wage for 20, of those years. A veteran of the military paralyzed for the last twenty years, talked about how he did not want to go into a nursing home, to die. What the system wants is to put these people into nursing homes, where they will be discarded and die sooner than they would in their own homes. What kind of country is this? Demented!

All these pro-lifers talking about how they love the fetus and once the baby is born they hate it. They don't want to take care of it. They want to check people into a facility that could give a rats ass, about a living, breathing human being. But they want you to have those babies. Something is terribly wrong. That is why the Occupy movement began. That is why Raul Carranza and his brother are fighting for their rights.

After the rally we headed into the streets to march to the civic center. We headed south on front street and made a left at A St. We had taken over all lanes and the wheel chairs were not easy to push. The cops started on their rampage making sure we left a lane open. Raul, his brother, many of his family members, friends, occupiers and strangers chanted, 'People people can't you see, healthcare is a human need.'

About 75 people marched into the civic center. We had another rally open to anyone who wanted to speak out about the injustices going on, in the country and the medical field. A few mintues into the rally a man walked briskly through the rally followed by six cops. The cops said he had jay walked. The SDPD took the limelight away from two young men in wheel chairs who have never walked a day in their life. To give another man who had participated in Raul's rally and march a jay walking ticket.

Do these cops have compassion? Hell no! The SDPD are pathetic thugs and the real domestic terrorists in this town. Raul Carranza whose muscles do not work, but his brain does has the courage to speak out and fight all injustices. Raul is not afraid of cops who cannot think for themselves, or the idiots who say he does not deserve 24/7 care. No, Raul Carranza is braver than any SDPD officer out their, even though he lives in a wheel chair and has not walked a day in his life.

San Diego DA Bonnie Dumanis Orders SDPD to Crackdown on #OSD

The truth comes out. Last night at Occupy San Diego I learned from a police officer, who really is calling the shots and ordering excessive force and discrimination against #OSD. District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. Last night was student night at the opera and thousands of high school aged kids filled the civic center. Lined up in groups waiting to see 'Salome.'

I walked over to see why two SDPD officers were asking for id, from a young man. I stood close to hear what the issue was, when approached by another blue coat who asked what I was doing. I said 'hanging out.' He informed me that the adults in charge of the kids going to the show, asked the SDPD to make sure the occupiers did not have contact with the kids. Interesting.

Another man from our group James, was over at the front entrance to the plaza and telling kids to think for themselves, as they walked into the theater. He was verbally attacked by an angry older white man that told him 'if you weren't doing anything wrong the police would not bother you.' James also learned that the SDPD had been informing the kids, that occupiers were against liberal arts and theater. Wow, that is a bunch of crap!

While the kids waited outside for the doors to the theater to open, some of the gutsy occupiers started drawing on the ground with colorful chalk. A couple nights ago a couple occupiers were given citations for chalk art, as the SDPD explained to them it was toxic and harmful to the environment. Last night something else happened. The SDPD used Bleach to remove the chalk art! Another contradiction in their charade of insanity and making up their own laws.

Now we know San Diego DA Bonnie Dumanis is one of the ring leaders, in shutting down #OSD. Bonnie Dumanis has her eyes on Jerry Sanders mayoral seat. Could Bonnie Dumanis, Jerry Sanders and police chief Lansdowne be the clowns making up their own laws and discriminating against people standing up and speaking out against political, judicial and corporate corruption happening in this state and country? Yes!

Don't Shove Your Religion Down My Throat

How many of you have been told, the abuse you are going through is gods plan? Really this is what your abusive god wants for my life. Hell NO! But hey if you think it is ok for my life, it better be ok for your life, your families and friends life. Life for some is a tangled web of abuse, oppression and suppression all in the name of god. I have read the bible, attended church, and read many other religious/spiritual books from zen, to Buddhism, the Koran... I have come to the absolute conclusion they are all lies and a way to control others, especially women.

A new billboard in Boulder, Colorado is making the religious zealots angry. Why, because it has the opportunity to make people think for themselves and not be coerced into being sheep and following a religion, just because your parents told you ,it was truth. Or someone on the street you met, told you how jesus changed their life, and if you don't believe in jesus, you are a bad person and will go to hell. Folks I have been living in hell for twelve years, because of mans plan, not gods plan. Mans plan is about control, and control, is the worst form of abuse and oppression.

People can believe in whatever fairy tales they choose. There are at least a thousand religions around the world. How do you know, one hundred percent that yours is the right one? How do you know if something is a miracle or coincidence? How do you know what your god really wants for you or anyone else? Religion is a big business. Religion has caused many wars killing and destroying many people, through out the ages. Stop pushing your reiligion on me. Start being accountable for your own life. Don't think you know what other people need to make them stronger. Look in the mirror and open your eyes to reality.

People are so programmed to believe whatever someone tells them. People are easily shaped to follow something without even thinking about what they are doing. They just do it, because someone says to. These days religion and religious people put fear into others, to believe a certain way or you will go to hell. Religion is hell to me. Those who lie, harm and cause suffering to others in the name of god are people I have no respect for. This is my life. Stop telling me what I have to do to get something. Stop telling me that if I don't believe the way you do I am a bad person. Start being accountable for your actions not mine. Then and only then will life get good for all.

Concerned Citizens Bring SDPD's Behavior To Citizens Review Board

What will it take to stop the harassment, intimidation and out right abuse of authority by the SDPD? It will take a new watch dog group called Occupy. Since October 7, 2011 Occupy San Diego has been battling the SDPD and their dirty dog tactics and utter discrimination against a group of people wanting to bring change to a corrupt system. Last night about forty occupiers from San Diego attended the citizens review board meeting held at the Malcom X library on Market Street.

Not only has the occupy movement in San Diego witnessed and first hand experienced the abuse of power by the SDPD, they have seen how the homeless in San Diego are being picked on and pushed out. Who is directing this violent behavior? The mayor, city council, the chief of police, who is it asked Ray Lutz? Because the orders have to come from somewhere. Ray Lutz also told the board members that out of the hundred and fifty plus arrests, most of the charges have been dropped or our pending and have a year to be submitted. So what the police are doing is stealing the occupiers money, playing games with the judicial system and blatantly harassing people.

About fifteen speakers spoke to the board members with purpose, passion and conviction about their concerns that the SDPD has serious issues of police brutality and discrimination problems. Fish brought to the attention of the board that police officers need a psyche evaluation. Mike Garcia told the board he was arrested for sitting in a chair and handing out flyer's. Stephanie Jennings told how she was tackled and thrown to the ground, because she touched the yellow caution tape. Mike a veteran spoke about how he took an oath as a military officer to defend foreign and domestic terrorist.

In Hartford CT three officers and one sergeant were arrested by the FEDS yesterday, for racial profiling and abuse to mexicans. So this problem is not just in San Diego, but country wide. I know that being a police officer is not easy and they have to deal with many people that pose a threat. But at the civic center people are sitting in circles discussing how to make this country and world a better place. Not how to blow it up or violently attack the police. We did not come here to fight the police, but to fight corruption in politics, corporations and the banking industry. Nothing to do with the police. But they have shown they are also corrupt and need to be held accountable for their actions.

It was a successful evening. I left feeling we were effective in getting some board members to understand the SDPD are discriminating against a political group. They have been using excessive force and they need to be addressed with repercussions to those that have abused their power and authority. I have also seen how the homeless are being kicked around and oppressed by the SDPD. That is why they cannot get out of their situation. So if you are a concerned citizen, join the new watch dogs in town, Occupy San Diego.

San Diego Citizens Review Board On Police Practices

Occupy San Diego has been dealing with police officers who have gone beyond their duties and authority. These police officers who took an oath to protect and serve, have been more apt to harass and intimidate. Last night I was planning on staying at civic center, due to the rain. About 10 people situated themselves under the over hang on the west side of the plaza. There were a few homeless people not connected with Occupy San Diego sleeping about a hundred feet down from us.

Myself, Panther and Angel were laying down on top of my sleeping bag, covered with coats to keep us warm. At around 10:30PM two officers in a car come rolling in and tell us from their car with the window down that we cannot sleep or lay down. These officers proceeded to drive down where the other sleepers were and informed them they could not sleep. Two of the homeless people packed their stuff and rolled it out of the civic center, on a cold, dark rainy night. I thought the police were to protect and serve, at least thats what it says on the car doors!

Ernie who has been bringing coffee, hot chocolate and tea in the evening was on his way out when this happened. He offered to bring us some hot water in plastic bottles so we could keep it on our bodies for heat. When Ernie arrived back at the plaza Panther and Star had gotten into a arguement and it was escalating. Other people were getting involved and the noise increased. I knew the police would show up and they did. Five to six officers four women and at least one man.

They told us we had to leave or be arrested for placing things on the ground. I asked a women officer whose name is Clark what code we were breaking if we put things down and she could not tell me and said she did not have time to discuss it with us. Another short little black haired cop who thinks her shit doesn't stink got fiesty with me and I did not want to lash out, so I turned around and walked out of the plaza. We had no cameras or phones to video what was happening at the time.

This morning I walked back into the civic plaza and saw two officers standing outside by their cars. I walked up to them. One was the officer that did not want to tell me the code for placing things on the ground. I went up to her and asked her name and badge #. She was reluctant at first and then I told her I was going to the police review board this evening and needed this information. She then asked my name and I said 'Lynn.' I called her officer and she said I am a sergaent. I told her I did not know the difference and she was just a police officer and officer Clark got mad and had a ego. She did not like being called police officer.

Folks what kind of world do we really live in? A very sad world were people harm and cause others to suffer because they have power trips, lie and like to destroy others. Tonight their is a citizens review board happening and all people that have been excessively harassed and intimidated by the SDPD need to show up and tell their stories. Something needs to change in San Diego and we can make that happen.

Rick Santorum and Those Like Him

The abusers always blame, the ones they abuse. Not only abusers do damage to their victims, so do others that allow it, participate in it and worse have the audacity to tell the victim "make the best out of a bad situation." That is what Rick the 'Republican Scum Ass' Santorum said to victims of rape. People that think abuse of any kind is acceptable for any reason, need a good dose of it in their own life and their families life. Then and only then, might they understand that hurting and harming another unless in self defense is sick and demented.

We live in a world were lying is acceptable behavior. Where causing pain to another makes others feel good, until it happens to them. In America the right wing extreme christians say they are against abortion because it kills. But they are for wars that kill innocent people. They are for the death penalty that kills innocent people. They kill abortion doctors. They don't want to help mothers once they have the babies. People sure can dish out abuse, but they don't want it dished back at them. Those are Cowards!

Whose Body My Body

Today a group of energized and passionate people gathered at the civic center in downtown San Diego, to rally for abortion rights. Today is the 39th anniversary of Roe vs Wade. Abortion rights have been targeted by the extreme right church going thugs who think my body is their body! It's Not! We were all given a life to decide how we will live it and what we can do with our bodies. What makes me foam at the mouth more than anything is, men who have the balls to tell me what I can do with my body. Hell no they gotta go!

I like the saying 'keep your messiah out of my vagina.' Four speakers gave us an overview of the battle women have been fighting to keep abortion legal and safe. This article by the ACLU talks about the bad year for reproductive rights and justice. After the speeches around 90 men and women of various racial backgrounds hit the streets and marched toward Horton Plaza with signs and slogans such as 'whose bodies our bodies, whose rights our rights' we heard.

As we approached Horton Plaza a young security guard walked toward the people carrying the banner and tried to tell them they could not march there. They proceeded to march and she again tried to get them to move while calling for back up. We did not listen to her and continued to walk passing by Starbucks and Sam Goodies and reaching fourth st were we took the streets again. Women cheered on the sidewalks and honked their horns.

We marched to fifth st and it was a little quiet, except for one bar where everyone was watching football. My sign said something about the 1% and a man in the bar pointed to my sign and said that was him. As we marched toward the plaza the police finally caught up with us and followed us back to the civic center. Upon arriving back at the civic center a few friends who did not march greeted us. We finished the day with speakers personal stories and convictions about their beliefs in why abortion is not a crime. Whose body, my body!

Celebrating Our Victories on the Anniversary of Roe

So it’s been a bad year for reproductive rights and justice. Alright it’s been an exceptionally bad year. States passed a record high number of restrictions on the right to access abortion care and contraceptives that, as so often is the case, hit women with the fewest resources the hardest. And anti-choice lobbyists found new and insidious ways to try to take away health care from women, and to punish those who seek and provide abortion care...Read @:  ACLU

Occupy Job Bank

Are you looking for work? So am I. I started occupying at Occupy San Diego October 11, 2011. Since then, I have volunteered many hours with the occupation doing a variety of odd jobs. I made a choice in my life not to get a job because of a personal challenge going on in my life. I decided last week, I would try one more time to see if that challenge had subsided and venture back out in the job market.

I applied last Tuesday, to work at a golf tournament the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and did not hear back from them. The next day I went into businesses in downtown San Diego asking if they were hiring and had no luck. The next day I made a sign that read 'Employment Wanted Now' and stood on Broadway and 2nd st. One man asked what kind of work I was looking for and if I had a resume, other people wished me good luck and one jerk said 'they are hiring at Wendy's!'

Yesterday at Occupy San Diego's GA we broke up into groups and discussed things we would like to see implemented in Occupy San Diego. I brought up the idea of a Occupy Job Bank. Many people waved their hands in the air as a gesture of 'good idea.' I also mentioned the idea of Occupy Job Bank Protest, where people carried signs that read 'Hire me for' and then listed skills they had or positions they were looking for and pass out resumes, on busy corners in downtown San Diego.

Other idea's that came up were to make crafts and sell them at local farmers markets. I want to work, I just had enough of a personal issue that was affecting my work situation. I am going to try one more time and so can you. If you are looking for work leave a comment about what you are looking for. If you are looking for workers, leave a comment about what type of work you need. Let's work together to make this happen.
