This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

No Reason to Fear
"As I've repeated endlessly, the reason powerful conservatives are so happy to take away your right to privacy is because they know that the rich and the powerful always have that right. Money and power buys it. You can get a birth control pill, get an abortion, vote for who you want, associate with who you want, and no one will nose in your business because they fear offending you, since you can really fuck their life up with your power. They don't think privacy is a right. They think it is a privilege that belongs to their class and their class alone. Diamond necklaces, furs, a yacht, political influence and a door you can close are in the same category--luxury items that you have to pay through the nose for."

For wider exposure.

You ever notice that when there's a cop going the speed limit on the highway there are people that slow down and ride behind him and people that just speed right by him?

There is a cloak of respectability that protects people with money. Our society is geared to cater to their wishes. Many companies are upfront about this, and people with money start to lose sight of just how much the world is accommodating them. Rich people know that they can get powerful people to listen them. After all, in this extremely fucked up system where money equals speech, politicians are keenly aware of the role that rich people play in getting them elected.

So yeah, even if the fundies get their wish, and we outlaw abortion, the big money people will just find a way around it. We used to do it that way. It wasn't very civilized but it sure made being rich a lot more fun. In a world where all your rights are commodities to be purchased, not just speech, but all rights, will be contingent upon your ability to pay for them.

And being working class will really suck.
