Women protesting around the world – in pictures

Guardian Gallery

A longer view: from Senegal to Syria, women have put themselves at the front of different protest movements all over the world during the past week  –  La Paz, Bolivia: a woman clashes with riot police during a protest by hundreds of disabled people in La Paz to demand government support   |   David Mercado/Reuters

They look pretty frantic to stop her, don’t they?  Think they have enough cold hard men in blue with riot shields to do the job?

Relegated to being outsiders – when women are half, more than half, of the damned species.

So… the night of the elephant sized jackasses? (Pretty much!)

Santorum wins Oklahoma and Tenn…

marisacat - 6 March 2012

…and North Dakota. Too.

via Wash Po:

Rick Santorum has earned his third victory of the night in the North Dakota caucuses, according to the AP.

Ron Paul had hoped to post his first win in the Republican presidential race with a strong grass-roots effort in the state, but was trailing Santorum in early returns, with Mitt Romney in third place.

No winner has been declared in Idaho, Alaska or the battleground state of Ohio, where Santorum and Romney were locked in a battle that was still too close to call.

Looks like Kucinich is toast in his primary. Prolly the end of his political career.

ms_xeno - 6 March 2012

Good riddance.

Just another pandering fuckstick.

But, but Seabiscuit!

they just reported on MSNBC that Joe the Plumber won the Rep primary … so it’s Marcy Kaptur vs. Joe.

this country is a confederacy of dunces.

lucid - 6 March 2012

It’s would be damn entertaining if not for the staggering number of people hurt or killed by our dysfunctional system.

Madman in the Marketplace - 6 March 2012

yup, but here we are … and it’s only getting worse.

marisacat - 6 March 2012

.. on the precipice.

marisacat - 6 March 2012

waht a scream! I cannot wait for that run…

marisacat - 6 March 2012

But but but… La Nan says the Dems will win back the House! Does this fit in with the fairy tale?

ms_xeno - 7 March 2012

I can’t imagine that’s what Hopey really wants. He’d rather pretend to be a beleaguered, helpless victim who can blame his own ongoing romance with conservatism on Teh Evol Other.

that photo gallery is great.

another tinpot authoritarian with a badge …

Well, well, well… I responded on that thread to somebody who thinks you have to be a Tea Party stalwart to dislike Obama’s bullshit healthcare plan. I went off to the kitchen to throw something in the oven, and by the time I came back my comment was No More.

Pretty unsporting of Doctrow. Is he on the Hope/Change 2012 payroll or something…?

INCUMBENTS OUSTED — Cleveland Plain Dealer, “Marcy Kaptur defeats Dennis Kucinich,” by Michael Scott:

“Kaptur, the longest serving woman in Congress, has apparently won the Democratic primary. … A big reason is that Kaptur carried 94 percent of the vote in her home Lucas County, while Kucinich won 73 percent of the vote on his home turf, Cuyahoga County. …

Kucinich made his concession speech just past midnight Wednesday as the sometimes nasty faceoff ended. He said Kaptur ‘ran a campaign lacking in integrity, filled with false truths.'” http:// bit.ly/y0YZkg

What, I wonder, are “false truths”?

lucid - 7 March 2012

Anything that comes out of a politician’s mouth?

marisacat - 7 March 2012

truly, even the saliva.

7. brian - 7 March 2012

coming from a congresscritter, i think it means something like truths that kucinich wishes were false.

marisacat - 7 March 2012

I think you’ve hit it… think it was BHHM who told e the race between them got very very nasty…. LOL…

They should bite each other to death, in public, as far as I am concerned…

brian - 7 March 2012

or a cage match to the death. winner gets the seat.

Oh Shimon Peres is in SF today… heavy police coverage, bullit proof state-of-the-art car … a much hyped car, he’s at some high tech conf (what else do we have) in SF.

Drown us in terrorists and their security…

hmm i definitely had not heard that both reactors at San Onofre have been shut down and currently it is … looking long term perhaps.

Loss to So Cal Edison is a million per day, per unit.

Don’t Restart It, Dismantle it

It’s Time to Get Realistic About the Dangers of the San Onofre Nuclear Plant


Both units of the San Onofre Nuclear Plant are currently shut down. Let’s keep them that way, to prevent a Fukushima USA from happening here. We love our community and don’t want to lose it.

While it may be comforting to some that Southern California Edison says they are unwilling to restart either reactor until THEY are satisfied that it is safe to do so, the history of San Onofre itself, and of the nuclear industry in general, strongly suggests THEY will consider the “million dollars a day” they are losing in revenue per reactor each day while the reactors are offline, more than they will consider the risks and problems that restarting these old jalopies might cause to the population at large.

The local community is unprepared for the sort of catastrophic event a nuclear reactor meltdown would be for Southern California

. . . . .

Long ago, Dr. John Gofman, the first person to isolate working quantities of plutonium for the Manhattan Project, described the building of nuclear reactor power plants as “premeditated murder.” After Fukushima and Chernobyl, there can be no doubt.

. . . .

Why do they keep rebuilding these old reactors? Because new ones are A) Prohibitively expensive and B) Prohibited by law in California. So instead, San Onofre has been permitted to replace major parts that were never meant to be replaced, and to let uninspected parts continue to operate until they fail.

. . . .

On and on it goes… ’til of course it stops… Almost have to laugh, San Onofr sits on or near multiple fault lines.

That was certainly kept under the radar. In other ‘energy nooz’, one can only hope that the solar storm effects, expected to take place sometime early morn EST (between midnight and 7 AM from what I’ve read) tomorrow, will fry any remaining (all of them?) GPS devices, attached to Lone Wolver’s vehicles, ….for starters …….

marisacat - 7 March 2012

yes they kept it absolutely silent.

I had read about th problems over the past months, but not a word of a double shut down…

What a hoot! From Wapo’s The Fix:

Exit polls in both Michigan and Ohio show voters making more than $100,000 per year turning out in much higher numbers this year than they did in 2008. And in both cases, they might well have provided the difference for Romney.

In 2008, 22 percent of GOP primary voters in Michigan made at least $100,000, and that group made up 21 percent of the electorate in Ohio, according to exit polls.

This year, 33 percent of voters in Michigan made that much money, while 30 percent of Ohio voters did.

In both cases, the number of wealthy voters grew by about 50 percent — a pretty stunning increase in that demographic over just a four-year span.

Welp, if anyone far less ‘emotional’ (not that that would prevent that person from being tracked as a suspect; …despite ….not having any, … whatsoever, ….. record of violence and ugly deeds), …. or, if you are someone with the knowledge to “Comment” …. without being traced and tracked, …. who would like to “Comment” , …. as regards to the attempt to totally outlaw, …….. $UZ$ Protest, ……. DO have at it, by:

1. ‘Clicking’ : Pending Legislation

2. ‘Scrolling’ down to H.R. 347 – Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011

3. And ‘Clicking’ Submit a comment [to Obombster and his Masters and Lackey Surveillors/Incarcerators and Assassins] . ….

Welp, International Wimmins Day (sorry I’m not able to supply that loverly, over done roundy: Billy and Melinda Judaic/Catholic Font), …it came, …… sans condom, … then ditched …. at the perpetual rising of the Male Sun, … whilst the wimmins, was preparing a celebratory break … fast.

…who even knew (or remembered, in the face of such venom towards females),…… that that fake holiday ….. for the, hysteric, and emotional , wimmins!!!!!, … had ever been proclaimed.

marisacat - 7 March 2012

wihtout something as simple as the ERA, the day means nothing in the USA!!! USA!!!

diane - 7 March 2012

Sorry, meant to end the italics after the Billy & Melinda Gates “slur”, but then again since so much is infested by their likes, …..why not extend them. ….

JAISAL NOOR: It’s really interesting, because a lot of people don’t know that some of the key organizers, the key founders of Occupy Wall Street are actually public school teachers. They know better than anyone the effects of the 1 percent having this undue influence on public education. You have Bill Gates, Eli Broad, these rich, wealthy philanthropists that are backed by—first by No Child Left Behind, now by Race to the Top, that these people, who would never send their kids to a public school, can dictate the policies that are implemented in public schools across the country through these unelected school boards, as we see in Chicago and in New York. And, you know, Karen Lewis can definitely talk more about the struggles in Chicago, one of the areas that has been most altered under No Child Left Behind and where the prototype for Race to the Top, Renaissance 2010, was first created.

AMY GOODMAN: And of course, this is extremely important because Chicago is where President Obama comes from and where his secretary of education, Arne Duncan, comes from. Juan?

JUAN GONZALEZ: And where his former chief of staff [Rahm Emanuel] is now the mayor. Well, Jaisal, I want to turn back to your reporting in Chicago. Three Chicago teachers agreed to speak to you on the condition that you film only their hands and distorted their voices. I want to play a part of your interview with a teacher in a school managed by the Academy for Urban School Leadership.

and Oh ! Emanuel!!! :

KAREN LEWIS: Yes. When I first met him [Rahm Emanual ], we had dinner together, and he said, “Well, you know, 25 percent of these kids are never going to be anything. They’re never going to amount to anything. And I’m not throwing money at it.” And I was like, “Wow! You know, even if you believe that, you can’t say that to me.” So, I just watch how he has used black and brown and poor children as props to push an agenda that is all about privatization and all about so-called accountability, but it’s really the status quo, because once schools get put on probation here in Chicago, the Chicago Public Schools takes over, takes away the democratically controlled local school councils, takes that power away from them to hire and fire and evaluate principals and to spend discretionary funds. So, we see this cultur of punishment and culture of disinvestment, and it is rampant and obviously spreading throughout the country.

(Bracketed comments and bolding, mine)

marisacat - 7 March 2012

Well Rahm is and was a racist. So is Slob. So is Arne.

If it was not clear a few years ago, it should be by now. But of course, the excuses and delusions abound.

I go back and forth over what half of Obama he dislikes most. Or does he just dislike the fucking recipe?

diane - 7 March 2012

I don’t know, I just hope his/their lips are busted wide open on that hoody hoopsy court yard, … then fester and pus, threatening that bloodline to the ‘heart,’ …no antibiotics strong enuf to cure, …with no sympathy … other than: resign you nasty mother fuckers …..and live the rest of your lives ….in shame ….or making amends ….not that you could make enough amends by the time ya’ll rot in your ‘graves’. …..at the rate yinz is goin.

diane - 7 March 2012

If I might say …. .I wonder if Basket ball wasn’t initially a condemnation of the whole Elite Males (and femalez) Wit Deformed Ballz/Ballz Games commentary .. which … of course, if it was, … was Usurped …. by those … very same Elite Males (and femalez) Wit Deformed Ballz .. .just like …..greenz, ……. sweetbreads, ….et al, …. anything that the oppressed found to satirize, …. Usurped …by those deformed beings who feel the need to Own and Abuse anyone that refuses to suck their Dick or Dildoe.

diane - 7 March 2012

Got anything to say to that [Big Dawg!!!!!] Janet? , …. other than: …. Drone THAT BITCH …….
