US IMMIGRATION BILL PASSES

Perhaps a Bush Thought

///The bill passed Thursday would build a triple-layer border fence along 370 miles and add U.S. Border Patrol agents, while giving millions of illegal immigrants a means of earning citizenship.

Border Arrests///In addition, Mexico is the state's No. 1 trading partner, bringing in almost $18 billion in California exports last year. California's exports to Mexico directly or indirectly support 177,000 jobs, according to Schwarzenegger's office.

U.S. Trade Facts
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the United States is the world’s largest economy and the largest market. It also is the world’s largest exporter of merchandise and services. The United States accounted for over 10 percent of world export trade and 18 percent of total world imports in 2005.

United States exports were up from $818 billion in 2004 to $904 billion in 2005. Export growth was seen in manufactured goods including nuclear materials, electric machinery, vehicles, and aircraft. U.S. imports also increased in 2005, rising from $1.47 trillion to $1.6 trillion. Greater demand for oil, combined with high fuel prices, contributed to the trade deficit. Our largest trading partners are Canada, Mexico, Japan and China.

...NOT TO MENTION HOW THE US GOV'T "BOUGHT" CALI FROM MEXICO WITHOUT MENTIONING GOLD IN THEM HILLS HAD BEEN DISCOVERED ONE WEEK EARLIER!

I thought at the same time that it could hardly be kept secret for six weeks, and in this I was not mistaken, - John Sutter, during his official announcement.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves  was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the  United States  from 1990 to 2002. [1]  It was created as an expansion of the  San Francisco   Bay Area Bisexual Network  (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine,  Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality , was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the  stereotype  depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves". [2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of  sexuality  and  gender , to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat  biphobia . - Wikipedia Anything That

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag (but people I knew said I did, so did "the news") By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always. My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other! My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen
