I thought that this would help feed some of the more political/social
topics running on Rhizome.

Has anyone ever heard of the Sullivan Clinton Campaign?

www.sullivanclinton.com

"The Sullivan-Clinton Campaign was the largest expedition ever before
mounted against native North Americans. "

In a matter of a month, the American Army, led by George Washington,
went into upstate New York, and wiped out close to 500,000 Indians!!!

Check out this actual quote by GW himself.

"The Expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against
the hostile tribes of the Six Nations of Indians, with their associates
and adherents. The immediate objects are the total destruction and
devastation of their settlements, and the capture of as many prisoners
of every age and sex as possible. It will be essential to ruin their
crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more.

I would recommend, that some post in the center of the Indian Country,
should be occupied with all expedition, with a sufficient quantity of
provisions whence parties should be detached to lay waste all the
settlements around, with instructions to do it in the most effectual
manner, that the country may not be merely overrun, but destroyed."

Orders of George Washington
to General John Sullivan
At Head-Quarters
May 31, 1779

These are the type of actions this coutry was founded on. What makes you
think we have chaged much in 200 years.

I no longer believe in protesting.
The very nature of protesting itself creates a division. It is
exclusionary.

From now on I am willing to work to be a part of a society that
includes everyone, and I am going to make my actions reflect this
inclusive way of living.

Fuck the media.

Ok, if you go to CNN's website today, you'll see them proudly proclaiming
that the "Most of Americans are hopeful after the election." and the the
"majority of americans believe Bush will unite the country in his second
term."

Oh, sounds so happy and wonderful, doesn't it? Well, as we know, most people
don't get past the headlines in articles. If you actually read the article,
you see who this "majority of americans" really is:

"Fifty-seven percent of 621 American adults surveyed Wednesday night said
they expect Bush to unite the nation during his second term."

Yeah. So according to CNN, fifty-seven percent of 621 people represent a
"majority of americans." lessee, fifty-seven percent of 621... 353.97
people. Now does that sound like a majority to you?

According the the US Census Bureau, there are about 300 million people in
America. So let's see... If I did my math right, that means about 0.0001% of
the population. Yeah. Sorry, CNN, but that doesn't sound like a majority to
me.

bush :(


Well, at least there's something worth smiling about today. The nation may
have turned their backs on sanity and rational thought, but at least The
Onion still has our backs.
