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.

Hipocrita

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 FranciscoBay 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

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …
