Libya. Wisconsin. Christchurch.
And all I could find on the fucking useless news yesterday was information about President’s Day. Because that’s way more important than Koch Industries bankrupting Wisconsin and trying to break public unions, or Gaddafi bombing his own people or a huge earthquake in New Zealand.
Mainstream media in America, corporate owned, is useless. Feeding citizens pap rather than doing their actual jobs of reporting on what’s going on in the world.
The Mayans were wrong: the world isn’t going to end in 2012. No, it’s happening right now.
ETA: And let’s not forget the Republican House declaring war on women, in which reproductive health care (not abortion, health care) is being de-funded, along with preschool programs, and senior citizen programs. Because apparently Republicans want to stand at the foot of my bed, and make me have babies. Except they don’t want to actually provide health care or other social services for the babies they would like to force rape victims (er, accusers, since Georgia wants to refuse to call women who have been sexually assaulted victims) to have. Fundamentally, I do not understand the GOP. And I don’t understand how any woman can be a party to the misogyny Republicans are writing into legislation.
