Feminist Wednesday - One down, six to go...

Just got added to a feminist blog list so thought I should hurry up and post something feminist - besides a link to my article WOMAN Vs. THE NATION STATE.

Found a Youtube video which doubtless is a twisted Irishman's mock on feminism, but I still like the concept of Feminist Wednesday. Followed by six more days of feminism until - one day at a time - patriarchy as a culture is expelled from human consciousness!
Patriarchy will be taught in anthropology classes as a horrifically amusing past custom, like wearing cod pieces or chastity belts.

Bigglest Laugh of the Month - Sleeping Dog

Even if you don't have a dog that runs in its sleep, you'll laugh. No dogs were purposely hurt in this video. Seven million happy customers served.

Update: And the dog talks too!!

Who am I? Where do I live? How do I save the economy?

I thought I'd look through my copious photos and see which one suggested a blog entry first. This one did. One day our 15 year old dog decided he lived next door and kept trying to get up their steps and into their house. Thus this caption.

What did it remind me of? Prez Obama! He's only 47 but he doesn't know if he's a democrat or a socialist. If he should should raise taxes or print more money. If he's going to free the slaves or let the Israelis keep screwing the Palestinians. If he's Rahm Emanuels toy boy or vice versa. If Geitner should go or stay. He needs a good brisk read through a variety of free market books (not taking any talk of gold standards too seriously of course).

FREE THE SLAVES OF THE WORLD, BARACK! Stop trying to get into the wrong house where the oppressors live, come back home to liberty!!!

Chas Freeman on CNN - who'll stop war on Iran now?

Back to reality...the reason a lot of people in the know supported Charles Freeman as chair of the National Intelligence Council, despite allegations of some questionable comments about Chinese dissidents, is he wouldn't allow the kind of nonsensical lies that excused the war on Iraq pass by him to excuse war on Iran. Which of course is why the Israel lobby had to get him out. They want Israel's good dog the US to do that job for them, just like it did Iraq, to stop Saddam from paying off the families of suicide bombers. Lots of bloggers and even major media are saying something similar. Here's Freeman's interview on CNN with the always fascinating Fareed Zakaria...

Meditation on the gloriousness of the female...

After a few postings about the rotten state of the world, I like to put in some light and/or meditative fare. Here's today's entry, a meditation on the gloriousness of the female...
