Zimmerman’s Acquittal?

As the patriots and bandwagons unite basking in Miami Heat’s second Championship as predicted we all got the case of blamnesia (black amnesia ha ha) and forgot what and who to fight for. Last time I checked George Zimmerman was still on trial and now has a great chance of being acquitted. “If you’re going to shoot someone, shoot to kill” reasonable doubt wins the case.

LGBT Equality

For a long time now, opponents of LGBT equality have successfully used ballot initiatives to block our path forward — but this year, we have a real chance to win marriage fights at the ballot box. Four states — Maine, Maryland, Washington and Minnesota — will vote on freedom to marry measures this year. In the first three, a yes vote will deliver the freedom to marry to same-sex couples. In Minnesota, we are fighting to stop a constitutional ban on marriage for same-sex couples.

With your help, November 6th could be a breakthrough moment. All of our efforts to end discrimination based on sexual orientation have gained real momentum this year — now we need you to carry that momentum through to Election Day.

You Are…

You are the bolting pulse in my heart 

You raise up my body hair

You are the sensation under my skin through my veins

You are what makes my stomach feel like a 2 ton brick falling inside me

You are the cringing in my toes, the sweat pouring from my hands

You are the cause I get tongue tied, the frog in my throat

You are the passion inside me, and the strength within me

You are the unlimited sky in my horizon, the open sea to new findings

I testify who you are, but, do you know who you are?

Are you who I thought you were? 

Are you even You?

Answer me Love!

MSU Hate Crime

Zachary Tennen, a 19-year-old sophomore at Michigan State University, was at an off-campus party when two college-aged men approached him and demanded to know if he was Jewish.When Zachary said he was, the men made a Hitler salute, said they were part of the Ku Klux Klan, and beat him unconscious, breaking his jaw in the process.While he was knocked out, one of them stapled the boy’s mouth shut while guests at the party watched. No one intervened or called the police – instead, the other guests kicked Zachary out of the house the moment the 19-year-old came to.

Zachary is scheduled for surgery this week, but his trials are far from over. As East Lansing police try to find the men who assaulted him, department spokesmen claim they don’t believe the attack was a hate crime, and are refusing to investigate it as such.Zachary’s father Bruce is trying to contact the Anti-Defamation League and the FBI regarding the attack, to see if their intervention can make East Lansing take the assault seriously. Please, join us in calling on ADL Director Abraham Foxman and the Bureau’s Civil Rights Division to look into this case, now.
ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE AND FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION: We urge you to investigate the anti-Semitic attack on Zachary Tennen, and to determine why East Lansing police refuse to view the assault as a hate crime.

Beauty is….

Beauty is upon you like the rainbows up above. 
Beauty is upon you like the sentimental dove. 
Beauty is upon you like the young bird new to flight. 
Beauty is upon you like the shooting stars each night.

Beauty is upon you like true love that never dies… 
Beauty is upon you like true love that never dies…

-Denis Martindale

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

War on Terror

Though the CIA claims to have only waterboarded three detainees during the War on Terror, evidence has surfaced that they waterboarded at least one more. Human Rights Watch has revealed that in 2003, as the CIA rounded up and interrogated Libyan revolutionaries, Mohammed Shoroeiya was waterboarded.

Credible authorities agree unequivocally that waterboarding is torture. In fact, after World War II US forces hanged Japanese soldiers for using waterboarding. Now our secret armed forces use it with impunity. We must condemn the CIA’s egregious use of this form of torture, which betrays core American principles.

If we don’t stand up to such abuses, we assure that they will occur again. If we don’t demand full accountability, we empower future abuses. Please, add your name to this petition and demand an investigation into these new waterboarding allegations.

PETITION TO THE US CONGRESS: The United States cannot abide by torture. We demand that you open a full congressional inquiry into recent revelations of waterboarding in Libya, which controvert CIA claims. <—- ACLU email

Happy Birthday~

Happy Birthday to a long time friend I know and love dearly. Although you’re birthday has past, who you are inside never changes and always warms my heart.

Seems like yesterday I met you on the bus and out of no where, I had the guts to even say hi and start up a conversation. We were Romeo and Juliet attending two rivalry schools reuniting at the same bus stop everyday enjoying each other’s company. As you left for college our distance grew but our friendship grew stronger as we confided in each other more than ever before.

Not only did our friendship blossomed but so did something special we both can’t hide. You’re the sweetest, and most compassionate person I’ve known with a big heart. I love you and hope you savor every moment in life, and most importantly to be happy with yourself where you are now. It’s a day to remember and cherish every year that goes by so happy birthday.
