Freedom Riders: True Rebels

"In 1961, the Freedom Riders, a dedicated group of men and women, black and white, young and old (many from university and college campuses) across the country boarded buses, trains and planes bound for the deep South to challenge that region‘s outdated Jim Crow laws and the non-compliance with a US Supreme Court decision already three years old that prohibited segregation in all interstate public transportation facilities."  from http://www.freedomridersf

It Takes Courage to Start Snitching

There was a fight at our local high school a few weeks ago.  Actually it was two girls attacking a third girl on school property (not exactly a fair fight). For these girls, any suggestion that things might be handled without violence just didn’t make sense to them.  They might as well stick their fingers in their ears and shout, “LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, I CAN’T HEAR YOU,” that’s how receptive they are to advice.

The entire thing is kind of odd and I feel like I’m watching 24.  This is the type of thing that Jack Bauer would come up with to flush the real Osama out of hiding.

Hockey Really Doesn't Matter Anyway... or Does it?

I almost gave up.  Sitting there on Saturday night, watching the Bruins barely show up in another loss against the team I despise more than any other...

Vote!

When the youth get involved in the political process, things change!

More on that after these words from Rick Mercer;

Students For Justice Clothing

I want to boost an initiative that I think is Truly Rebellious.

Students for Justice Clothing call themselves; A youth movement for social change.

Straight from their website you can read the following about who they are

There's No Time for Pity, I've Got Too Much to Learn

I can’t see 3D pictures.  You know what I’m talking about?  Those pictures that just look like a design, but if you look ‘beyond’ the picture (or whatever) and you can see another image.  Well... I can’t see the other image; I never have been able to.

Mmmmmmmmmmm.... Delicious Slavery
