An Orgasm a Day to keep Capitalism Away

July 14, 2009

According to an article in the times UK

A National Health Service leaflet is advising school pupils that they have a “right” to an enjoyable sex life and that regular intercourse can be good for their cardiovascular health.

The advice appears in guidance circulated to parents, teachers and youth workers, and is intended to update sex education by telling pupils about the benefits of sexual pleasure. For too long, say its authors, experts have concentrated on the need for “safe sex” and loving relationships while ignoring the main reason that many people have sex, that is, for enjoyment.

Alongside the slogan “an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away”, it says: “Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes’ physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?”

TRy grabbing this and adding it to WIKIPEDIA. See if it can stay up! 

Barack Hussein Obama 2nd pronounced [yoo mey fahynd yoor-self in ey byoo-tuh-fuhl hous with ey byoo-tuh-fuhl wahyf and yoo mey ahsk yoor-self: hou did ahy get heer ? ] is the 44th and current President of the Unites States a position he holds concurrent with the obscure but all-powerful post of FIRST Overseer, Savior and heartthrob imposing zugzwang. TEXT acronym “fo shiz”

He is the first African American to hold the office, and he previously held positions as the junior senator from Illinois, assistant manager of the Harvard co-op bookstore in Cambridge, and boom operator and best boy for the popular MTV series Jackass.

As the star of the scripted television series, the Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama is also the first work of fiction to be elected president. The pilot episode for The Audacity of Hope was filmed at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. Now in its fifth season, The unorthodox series combines elements of reality TV, Orwellian double speak, and relies heavily on an online, “Second life” esque element and aims to merge seamlessly with what most people now view as reality.

Executive producer Norman Lear, who created such TV hits as ALL IN THE FAMILY, THE JEFFERSONS and MAUDE heads a talented team of 100s of writers who now work around the clock and all over the world.

Some critics lament that most of the writers are also lobbyists and that the show has lost the edge that captivated America in earlier seasons. LEAR alternately responds to such criticism in iambic pentameter:
“Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!

You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout

Till you have drenched our steeples, drowned the cocks!”

Obama began his historic run for the presidency in February 2007. A massive product placement campaign with CNN, MSNBC and the Huffington Post ensured 24-hour hyperbolically orgasmic coverage for Barack for the duration of the presidential race. This combined with 150 years of built up white guilt ensured victory.

In the 2008 general election he defeated an American war hero and his running mate, a female Barbie born of a virgin who rode into town on the white horse of the apocalypse. Obama and was inaugurated into office on January 20, 2009.

All of the world worries will vanish by January 20, 2010.

Kokesh for Congress: Healthcare Shrugged?

July 7, 2009

Intro: IVAW leader and anti war activist Adam Kokesh is now a legit contender for Congress. With the blessing and support of the Ron Paul Revolution, Kokesh is running as a Republican in New Mexicos 3rd district in 2010. The idea that the Republican party is an empty vessel came from a recent conversation between Adam Kokesh and Rand Paul. Both men are 2010 Congressional candidates. Both are libertarian Rand Paul is the son of Dr. Paul who is the man who is likely to run for the US Senate seat that Senator Jim Bunning is likely to vacate.

An Open letter to the Progressive movement

July 6, 2009

Dear Progressives, or liberals, or whatever labels you proudly wear or your worldview has occasioned others to foist upon you.

I’m Davis Fleetwood, I am one of you, and I’d like a few moments of your time.

Our movement, if the loose connection of websites and facebook pages and email circles we bounce around on can be called a movement, is failing.

Despite the laudable and truly valiant efforts of groups like Iraq Vets Against the War and Individuals such as Cindy Sheehan, David Swanson Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader and even Dennis Kucinich- Single payer healthcare has been marginalized to the fringes and all but removed from the debate, the peace movement is a complete failure, the new energy bill could actually make the environment worse, and we are no closer to a two state solution and justice for Palestine than we were under Ronald Regan.
Consider the following.

Policy is made from the center. All of our efforts in the past have been an effort to move the policy makers to the left.

We should instead focus on moving the entire center to the left.

The right wing has outfoxed us. They have their religious fanatics and their libertarians, and their Glenn Beck enthusiasts. All of those constituencies are dismissed by mainstream media and policy makers, – but their voice is loud enough to be added to the conversation, and the next thing you know the center has moved RIGHT.

Think of it like a cycling team- a few of us need to break from the pack, race out ahead, in hopes of wearing out the other teams cyclists. A few of us need to go WAY left of liberal- I mean cartoonishly left of liberal, and enough of us have to do so in enough different forums with enough conviction and sincerity so that we begin to drag the conversation the whole paradigm, LEFT. In doing so, the center- where policy is made, will follow. I’m that cyclist breaking from the pack.

In support of just such a strategy I invite you on two journeys. First, so that we know where we are going, we need to revisit the past. And I will do so in my “this day in the USA project.” 365 videos in 365 days, re-telling the history of the United States one day at a time. This project will live on a new YouTube channel- subscribes, grab it share it blog it blast it, make it the most subscribed channel this week. Give it credibility.

Certainly, the scholars among you will be able to poke holes in my daily video essays, but my lie’s will tell a greater truth while injecting a much needed sense of humor into our holier than thou disposition.
Looking to the future, I have started the 9/10 Project. The rejoinder to the Glenn Beck 9/12 project – the 9/10 project is interested in post American cartography.

That is right- the 9/10 project is so liberal and progressive as to be an open source brainstorming effort to bring about the peaceful break up of the United States.
Think of it like friends don’t let friends drive drunken campaign on a global scale. Citizens should not let their country lock and load and step on the gas pedal accelerating towards Armageddon.

Do I expect or even want the 9/10 Project to succeed?

No.

But my mistake- our mistake- in the past has always been to fight directly for what we wanted.

If an archer is trying to hit the target and the wind is coming from her left, she must aim accordingly. In aiming for a progressive agenda, the 9/10 project is aiming way to the left of said agenda, with full knowledge of the powerful forces blowing against it.

Got any other ideas?

Do share.

THIS DAY IN THE USA is joint project with THE UMPTEENTH TIMES .
