As I’m sure we’ve all heard ad naseum by now, Mississippi is voting on Tuesday for a new definition of personhood, defining it, and it’s legal implications, as beginning at “conception” (which the more I read is a fairly loose term to begin with).  The Huffington Post article discusses a lot of the implications of this, with most birth control also being banned, etc etc.

But I hope to god the minute that law gets passed every single impoverished pregnant woman in Mississippi files for social security for her new person.  More food stamps, more “entitlement” programs.

This is an amalgamation of random shit. I do music/art/photography as well as spout armchair opinions on politics, philosophy, Art, and lots of things ending in -isms. Any work that is mine will be clearly marked as mine, anything not clearly marked is safe to assume to not be mine. To be honest, this is a public notebook of run on sentences, fragments of thoughts, distractions and small ideas for big minds. I'm going to try to make this as interactive as possible so I can get others ideas on my ideas and ideas on how to steal from people who are smarter than us. Ready for the pretentious quote at the end of the intro that is so cleverly designed to be intriguing and mysterious, yet thoughtful and engaging at the same time; some cute way of summing up myself in the words of some fuckwad Ive never met? "The only real peanut butter is Skippy Super Chunk. Everything else is just shit in jar."
