My Dream House

I constructed my 'Dream House' from this image I used to see when we drove past going to Paragon Park.  My grandfather's house was inside it (in the dream), coming from a tree in the basement.

The Responsibility Project

A Prisoner's Wife

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

by Janan Abdu / July 14th, 2010 


I used to tell my husband, Ameer Makhoul, "One day, they'll come for you." As chairman of the Public Committee for the Protection of Political Freedoms he'd begun to organize an awareness-raising campaign to push back against the security services' harassment of our community, the Palestinian citizens of Israel. 

Come for Ameer they did, late one night this May, pounding at our door, ransacking our house and terrifying our two teenage daughters. And now I've joined the ranks of Palestinian prisoners' wives, many thousands of us from the occupied territories as well as within Israel. His July 13 hearing - persecution, really - could begin the legal nightmare that ruptures our family for many years. This is the likely course of events unless Ameer gets a fair trial and his coerced statements are rejected or suppressed by the court. 

"Democracies don't fear their own people," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in her July 3 speech in Poland at the 10th anniversary meeting of the Community of Democracies. "They recognize that citizens must be free to come together to advocate and agitate." But the head of Israel's General Security Services said three years ago that Palestinian citizens' organizational efforts for equality constitute a "strategic threat," even if pursued by lawful means. 

That's not how democracy works. We may be a minority of 20 percent, but our rights to organize and insist on full equality and civil rights ought to be sacrosanct. That's what our entire community believes. The Public Committee that Ameer chaired was established within the framework of the High Follow-up Committee for the Arab Citizens of Israel, the community's overall coordinating body. It's a vital position and the leading organization protecting our civil rights. 

And now he faces the most serious charges leveled against a Palestinian citizen of Israel since the creation of the state in 1948. He is accused of being a spy (for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah) and having contact with a foreign agent. His trial will likely last for months. 

After his arrest, Ameer was held incommunicado for 21 days and tortured. Then Israeli officials pressed their charges, based on the "confession" he made during this time, when he was deprived of sleep, shackled in a painful position to a small chair, and not allowed to see his lawyers. 

Ameer denies all charges. As he said in his first letter from Gilboa Prison, he was "forced to explain to them in a very detailed way how exactly I did what I didn't do, ever." And if the prosecution needs any more information to make its case, all they have to do is use "so-called secret evidence, which my lawyers and I have no legal right to know about." 

Clinton's Krakow speech focused on civil society: Ameer is a civil society activist. He directs Ittijah, the Union of Arab-Based Community Associations - a coalition that brings together 84 non-governmental organizations. Clinton criticized several governments by name - but not Israel - for intimidation and assassination of activists. Why does America's drive to promote human rights stop at Israel's door? 

Throughout his life, Ameer has struggled for the rights of the Palestinian citizens of Israel - there are more than 35 laws on the books that discriminate against us - as well as those of the Palestinian people overall. He has the ability to lead and to convene diverse viewpoints, bringing them together across sect and ideology. His ability to network locally, at the Arab level, and internationally, coupled with his clear strategic vision - this is what Israel is trying to silence. 

The youth also look to him for leadership, which infuriates the Israeli security services. They told Ameer so when they hauled him in for questioning during our community's protests against Israel's assault on Gaza in December 2008-January 2009. During that interrogation they threatened to put him away if he kept up his activism, saying, "We can 'disappear' you. You should know that the next time we bring you in you will not see your family again for a long time." 

The few times we've been allowed to visit him thick glass has separated us and our meetings were taped. Ameer asked me for a copy of my new book to read in jail, but they wouldn't let me even take him that. My daughters really miss their father. They often say, "If only we'd been able to hug him before they took him away." That's one of the things that hurts them most, not being able to hug their father. 

Ameer still suffers from the torture and abuse inflicted on him, and they still try to break his spirit. They only allow 20 people into the courtroom even though it can hold many more, so when he sees it empty, he thinks no one cares. But far more people want to attend the trial than they allow in - family, community activists, politicians, and supporters from all over the world. 

I have never thought of myself as a "wife" but rather as Ameer's partner in life and in activism. But these days, as I wait with the other wives for our allotted visit, I find myself reflecting on the traditional Christian marriage vows: "What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." No man, I think, unless he's an Israeli jailer. 

Clinton spoke of "the cowardice of those who deny their citizens the protections they deserve." Ameer deserves the protection of the law: the right to meet his lawyers in private - Israeli officials have been taping those meetings too; the right to see the evidence against him, much of which the prosecution plans to withhold on security grounds; freedom from torture; and inadmissibility of confessions secured under torture. When will Clinton call for a Palestinian activist's human rights and an end to his persecution?

San Francisco.mp3

Though you kinda gotta like something that puts a limit at 420 (lyrics were too big), no?

San Francisco, it calls to me.
San Francisco, I gotta be,
back in 'Frisco, beside the sea
up and down Chinatown

New York's pace, 
Chicago's grace, 
great towns but they 
can't replace 
the razzmatazz, 
and all that jazz.

Telegraph Hill, it fits the bill.  
Cable-cars thrill, 
they thrill me still.  
Golden Gate Bridge--
the fog rolling in!

So if you find 
the need to explore all your dreams, 
come to San Francisco, 
my favorite to--wn, 
come to San Francisco, 
my favorite town.

Sort of (battlefield promotion).  It seems the 'architect' of the system I'm working on went on disability, and development fell to me.

Now, nobody's talking, but I'm thinking, "Nervous breakdown?"  It makes sense (given what I came upon).

You seriously wouldn't believe how much stuff people will think of 'designing' w/o writing a single bit down in a 'plan'.

And if it's not written down, and you compare it to your memory of what it was, what kind of check and balance is that?

The good side is that it took him a month of flailing before he just disappeared, but I've managed to debug and implement most of his code since Monday.

Most of the 'bugs' were statements he put in searching for 'bugs' but forgot to take out (which precluded the product actually 'working').

I really am that much better a programmer than most of them.  I remember the feet I shot, and how (and try to prevent recurrence).  He was using most of the methods I'd learned were bad, but wouldn't fix it.

Maybe now he sees why we use those methods (keeps the programmers from dropping like flies).  Maybe he's just getting enough energy back to come back and wreak more havoc by designing w/o discussing.  God knows.

The Fugs were an early 'bad' influence on me (well, freshman year in college).

Frank S.ent Tuli's obit today.  I went looking for 'Wide Wide River' as a funeral dirge.

I was SO happy to have found this version, and to have found that Tuli found it before he died, and liked it (click through to read his comment).  Here is "BP's Wide Wide River":

I think I now know the name of my 'spirit guide' (bigtime BIG-time heavy).


We shall see.

And I thought it might be Metatron (heh, "Dogma" yano?)

Figures I'd get Metatron's boss.
I was hit on the interstate (some years back--it's a story here).  I was going the speed limit, but up ahead, there was an incident (spirit guide said--"LOOK") and the traffic ahead slowed because a bobtail truck got sideways up ahead.

Spirit guide said, "Look behind" and I saw the smoke from the (useless) brakes of a semi that was going the speed limit and about ten feet from my rear end.

I let go of the brakes, and got shot up the exit to Santa Rosa at sixty MPH like a pool ball hit by an evil cue.

Truck left hexagonal imprints from the bumper bolts in my license plate, and a blue smear on the bumper from his bumper, but that was it.

It's metal.   You've seen "Donnie Darko" I presume?

Since my brother demanded I take him off the list that gets 'The Ouique' because he'd been part of the commentary (musing on the stupid things that come to mind in a person who's got serious organic brain dysfunctions).

The rest of you, however, don't get a 'free pass'.  You aren't idiots who've had your brains turned to swiss cheese by radiation.

It will be *ANOTHER* travesty if Iran (the 'father' of civilization, if Iraq was the 'mother') is  nuked (and it WILL be nuked if you aren't actively stopping it, and, of course, you aren't).  You freakin' idiots.

My brother has (somewhat of) an excuse (removal of great swaths of gray matter with radioactive 'knives').

The rest of you?   What?  You don't read?  You don't pay attention?  What?

You will lay waste to 1/3 of the Earth through your ignorance and fear.

When I was a kid, I took ballet at the local community college in order to fill out my semester and finish up my degree (took three classes, actually).  It was a 'blow-off' course.

When I got there, I expected to do my class in sweats and a t-shirt.  The instructor, however, had a list of items we were to purchase in order to 'do it right'.

One of the items was called a 'dance belt' and I had to ask what it was (it wasn't on the girls' list).

Basically, it's a 'thong jockstrap'.

I had jockstraps, and asked if that wouldn't be ok (didn't want to just throw money away).

It wasn't just the instructor who echoed back the answer.  Every girl in the class at least giggled, if they weren't voicing the answer themselves.  There were no other guys in the class.

It wasn't ok.

I showed up for the next class with grey tights and a 'dance belt' (got an 'A' in class, too).  

It made little sense to me then (since us men had no idea what you girls were looking at).  It does now.

My 'dance buddy' (for the most of the class) was a girl who worked at a strip club over on Northwest Highway.  I never went to see her work (those memories wouldn't work too well with the 'dance belt').  I still remember her 'heft' (most perfectly balanced woman I've ever touched--like a Japanese sword), and her scent (sweet and salty).

I've been mystified lately.  It seemed like the floor was wet (like it was by the front door last winter), but I could see that there was no water anywhere.

I told you that my feet had healed.  I wasn't expecting that I'd be able to feel the sweat on the soles of my own feet as 'wetness'.

That's what's going on.  My feet have that much sensation in them now (strangely though, it's comfortable to walk barefoot, even on rocks).  It's peculiar, but when they had those big thick callused soles, they were more tender.  Now, it's like football leather (tough, but very pliable).
Best way I can describe it, at least.  Something odd.   I don't think I'm properly 'arthritic' anymore.  Just stretching is sensual beyond any description.
Though I don't know if they will make it to the 2112 tour (let alone the 2012 tour, if it's a New Year's gig).

The source?  I kid I baby-sat when I was in my teens.  I don't know that I mentioned it to him, but his mom is a hero figure to me.  

She was the first female cop on our city's force, and she quit partially because the other cops were lying about me (specifically, Eddie Timbrell, 'Officer Obie'), as I understood it.   I wasn't a drug-dealer (crap, now that I look back, I was barely a drug user).  If she quit because of the lies, I'm honored.

Dunno if that's true, just something I heard long ago.

Still, they pulled me over and strip searched my car every quarter for a few years.

Great Subtitle

The report is titled "Afghanistan: Sustaining West European Support for the NATO-led Mission"

Now, it's the subtitle that caught my eye: "Why Counting on Apathy Might Not Be Enough"

I hadn't realized it, but these guys really DO count on apathy.  They expect that all they have to do is nothing, for the most part.

For example, when they say, "The Afghanistan mission's low public salience has allowed French and German leaders to disregard popular opposition and steadily increase their troop contributions" they are describing exactly the 'norm' (politicians ignoring the populace and doing what the 'powers' tell them to do).

They expect nothing from the people.  But it was still troubling to them, and so, for the French, who are sympathetically motivated and motivated by loyalties, an appeal from Obama and pictures of Afghan women and children were suggested.

Germans, more worried about 'purity' they targeted with fears of terrorism, drugs, and refugees.

Your tax dollars, hard at work, making sure that you don't *STOP* spending them (because the spooks' jobs depend on having lots of things to be afraid of).

Dr. Oz, Dissected

I think my spirit guide sent him to me this AM.  What's he's saying is syncing up quite well with my new understandings of 'disease'.

It comes down to the simple old standard: faith.  You either are here because you trust that God has you here for as long as you are supposed to be here, or you aren't.

Now, I've had some issues with 'faith' (partially because my spirit guide put me in some situations where it seemed pretty evident that 'the good' wasn't what was happening to me, and I'd not seen the whole set of facts yet).

But really, if you get your flu shot and get hit by a truck on the way back, that's the way He works.

I'd be far more concerned about the 'industrial' nature of the vaccinations.  I didn't ever do mainline drugs, even when many of my friends were *really* into it, simply on the assumption that my body had filter systems designed to prevent this immediate intrusion of anything into the bloodstream.

Given what I know now about these vaccines, I'd sooner shoot up the speed that tipped onto the dirty table and got sopped up through a cigarette filter that turned my friend green (the 'rush') than go to an MDeity.

I feel I should point out that this man who just sat down with you sits down regularly with a blatant racist (Lieberman) to do his 'work'.

I don't believe that any American should ever 'work' with such people.

These people are not our friends, and our wars for their benefit do us no good at all.

You are, in my judgment, a war criminal for allowing this to continue, and for not prosecuting your predecessor as is required by international law.

The only place in the mid-east which *deserves* US troops at this point is Gaza, and that's to protect these innocents from our 'friends'.

You are supporting a bunch of sick, weirdo religious nutjobs.

Of course, I don't expect you'd change a whit, I just wanted to mention how *proud* I am to have voted for Cynthia McKinney, and that I'll likely never vote for your party again, you sick bastard.

I hope your dreams are filled with the images of the broken burnt babies that you provide the world.

Money in Politics

Easy way to 'fix' things would be to require all representation to divest all but their homesteads and put their 'wealth' into the bonds of the government they are part of, so the President, Senators, and Congressmen would put it in US Savings Bonds, while a city councilman would buy the bonds of the city they represent.

On Prophecy

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I have from time to time (ok, damn near obsessively) poked fun at various 'prophets' like that nutjob from the 700 Club, Robertson, and the re-re-re-writer of 'End Times', Hal Lindsey (who both make a living off of being 'prophets', when they are really just 'profits').

But I must point out that (in 1973, when this one was penned) this account sounded more like science fiction than any of the others, yet it's come exactly true, just as he wrote (except for this big thing in the sky and world money that's not happened yet).  Certainly the 'Christian' church is supporting in major ways many of the war crimes of the world, which inspires many people to hate 'christ' (not the real christ, the freakin' world-conquering christ that the xians so love and want to show up, immediately).  And of course, true lovers of the almighty are being persecuted because they aren't 'tough enough' on 'them' (the 'others' who we hate changes day to day, but they're there to be hated, and if you don't do it with the haters, they hate you, too).

I promise them, they (haters) never want to meet the christ.  They'd simply fall apart out of pure shame.  There's no way to 'integrate' the hateful thoughts they bear with the love of god. There's no way that one can hate anyone, or anything, other than haters (proper use of hatred there--mirrors are the best cleaning tool for this), still, one shouldn't fixate on it.

In other words, I don't find many 'Christians' on Earth, to speak of.

So, hats off to David Wilkerson, author of 'The Cross and the Switchblade', who also penned 'The Vision'.  Here a synopsis from the wiki:

Wilkerson believes that in April 1973 he received a vision regarding the future of the United States and subsequently gave a sermon on the vision and published a book called The Vision. He has said that God revealed to him a great calamity which was going to befall America due to increase in sins such as homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, and greed.

Some of the details of this reputed vision were:

  1. "Worldwide recession caused by economic confusion"
    • "At most a few more fat flourishing years, and then an economic recession that's going to affect the life style of every wage-earner in the world. The world economists are going to be at loss to explain what's happening. It's going to start in Europe, spread to Japan and finally to the United States."
    • There will be a move toward a worldwide, unified monetary system. The US dollar will be hit bad and it will take years for it to recover.
    • The only real security will be in real estate (until a somewhat later stage, at which point this apparent security will also disappear).
  2. "Nature having labor pains"
    • Environmentalists will come under heavy criticism.
    • There will be major earthquakes.
    • There will be a major famine.
    • Floods, hurricanes and tornadoes will increase in frequency.
    • "A new kind of cosmic storm appearing as a raging fire in the sky leaving a kind of vapor trail."[2]
  3. "A flood of filth and a baptism of dirt in America"
    • Topless women will appear on television, followed by full nudity.
    • Adult, X rated movies will be shown on cable television. Young people will gather at homes to watch this kind of material in groups.
    • Sex and the occult will be mixed.
    • There will be an acceptance of homosexuality, and the church will even say that it is a God-given gift.
  4. "Rebellion in the home"
    • "I see the new number one youth problem in America and the world as hatred towards parents."[2]
  5. "A persecution madness against truly Spirit filled Christians who love Jesus Christ"
    • There will arise a world church consisting of a union between liberal ecumenical Protestants and the Roman Catholic Church, using Christ in name only.
    • There will be a hate Christ movement.
    • There will be a spiritual awakening behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains.
  6. Others
    • There will be another wave of riots.
    • There will be a fall in moral conduct.
    • There will be a new drug that will be popular with teenagers that will break down resistance and will encourage sexual activity.
    • Homosexual and lesbian ministers will be ordained and this will be heralded as a new breed of pioneer.
    • There will be nude dancing in church, but this will never be widespread.
    • There will be occult practices in churches.

Damn Women Drivers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Not often that I forward anything from my brother (and you are *SO* grateful for this, even though you don't know it), but this one I had to forward (even re-formatted it since it looked ghastly).

I drove moving vans, taxis, and busses in Dallas and Austin from 1976 till 1991.  I've seen more stuff happen in vehicles than you'd believe (one gets a rather unique perspective from the cab of a vehicle that is at the 'legal height' for vehicles).  There are, for example, a number of women who little strip-teases in their cars to titillate truck drivers.

The *most* dangerous thing you can do in a car is to pay attention to *anything* other than driving it (like girls driving with their skirts up and panties down).  While drunks and sleepers get the brunt of the 'blame' (since everything else is an 'accident'), I can assure you that defensive driving works, and it only works if you are paying attention.  Most 'accidents' are avoidable.

That said, here's the 'joke':

This morning on the Interstate, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a brand new Cadillac Doing 65 mph with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner. 

I looked away for a couple seconds--to continue shaving--and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup. 

As a man, I don't scare easily, but she scared me so much I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the donut out of my other hand. 

In all The confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed, and burned big Jim and the twins, ruined the darn phone, soaked my trousers, and disconnected an important call. 

Damn women drivers 

I wrote this as an email to a friend on Facebook, but really, it's more important to post it about (and Facebook's status line is a bit too short for this one):

This is a review of an article from 'Foreign Policy' magazine regarding the potential for peace in the mideast.  It's titled, "The False Religion of Mideast Peace: And why I'm no longer a believer" (link).

Here's what I wrote:

Well, for an 'expert' he glosses over an issue that I've found quite disturbing (p.4 he makes it sound like the 2008 Gazan issue was *their* fault, instead of a valid response to the Israelis' attack).  Our news only covered one item that day (Obama's election), and we didn't get any coverage until after it appeared that the Gazans had initiated it (very shrewd on the Israeli side).

And he parrots the BS about Iran's nuclear ambitions.  I've called the IAEA twice as a journalist reporting on this.  They were very helpful, and each time, noted that the calls from journalists to their offices for 'horses mouth' stuff were infrequent.

The IAEA has exactly *ZERO* concerns about Iran creating a weapon of any sort.  You can call yourself and confirm this (lines are likely open--nobody calls them).

The US/Israeli 'intel' in this case is just as valid as the intel on those WMDs in Iraq.  For example, the recent "outing" of their new plant was done not through 'spies' but by reading the report they submitted to IAEA (a year in advance of requirements).  The news made it sound like we'd 'uncovered' a secret, when it's just paperwork.

It's all about leaving just one 'superpower' in the area, Israel, and about making sure that all oil is valued in dollars (the real 'connection' between Venezuela, Iran, and Iraq is that all three started accepting Euros--Iraq's fixed now, but the other two will bring our house of cards economy down).

I think the most telling part is what he leaves out about Rabin's death.

You see, Rabin was murdered by an Israeli.  We never hear (here) about their 'right-wing' faction (the power right now).  Netanyahu is the head, but the power is shared with even *more* extreme right-wing parties than his.

The far-right in Israel believes that G-d has chosen them, and that 'goyim' (us) aren't human (human animals--without souls). 

Even *our* right-wing nutjobs who have 'castes' (usually of  race, but sometimes of religion) at least consider the 'lower' castes human.

In the case of Rabin, right-wing rabbis issued a 'fatwa' (can't find the actual Jewish term for their equivalent--but it's the same, a call for an individual to be killed to save the religion).

His assassin (Yigal Amir) is regularly denied a pardon by the president, but it's regular (keeps coming up because some of them think he's a hero).

Here's an article from Ha'aretz:

It's complex, but till we are all working with the same set of facts, it will never be simple.

Once Americans see not just the 'nice Jews' but these nasty asshole Zionist Jews, it becomes pretty clear.  We've got lots of the nice ones here.  The nasty ones all went there (to get 'their' land back from the goyim).  They believe that they own everything from the ocean to the edge of Jordan (the east edge), or will, eventually.

They are bringing destruction down upon themselves by being that way, but really, what's one to do?

I'd hate that any of my Jewish friends here got tarred with that brush.

To the tune of 'C-U-B-A' by Irving Berlin:

[1st verse:]

Not so far from here

There's a very lively atmosphere

Ev'rybody's going there this year

And there's a reason

The season opened there before

Ever since the U.S.A. drug 'war'

Ev'rybody's going there and I'm going, too

I'm on my way to


Holland, there's where I'm going

Holland, there's where I'll stay

Holland, where dope is growing

And where blue-eyed Stellas

Light Dutch Masters' Panatellas

Holland, where all is happy

Holland, where all is gay

Why don't you plan a

Wonderful trip

To The Hague?

Just hop on a ship

And I'll see you in Nederland, eh?

[2nd verse:]

Take a friend's advice

Smoking in a cellar isn't nice

Anybody who has got the price

Should be in Holland

Have you been longing for the 'smile'

That you haven't had for quite a while?

If you have, then follow me and I'll show the way

I'm on my way to

[Counterpoint Refrain:]

Why don't you do your smoking like a Dutchman

Instead of hiding in a cellar?

Since Prohibition, tell me, pal, have you been

A very frightened little feller?

Why don't you smoke it from a hookah

'Stead of a tiny silver pipe?

Smoke your hooch, dope and weed

Where the DEA can't feed

The finest bars are there, cigars are there

That only are made for Dutchmen

I'm not a drinking lady, I never smoked a Panatella

But I'm a she who likes to be where all is gay, okay!

So let us leave our cares and troubles behind

And tell 'em our new address

Is where they stay up late and drink till they're blind?

Blind, but nevertheless

They're glad to see you in Nederland, eh?


Why don't you travel with us on a train or a bus

To the Netherlands where we can begin

To plan a wonderful trip on a plane or a ship

That'll take us from prison state to Nivana?

See you in Nederdand, eh?

Russian Spy on tape

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
This girl doesn't necessarily seem like she's a spy.

However, she does remind me a bit of John DeLorean (from the wiki):

DeLorean successfully defended himself with a procedural defense, arguing that the FBI had enticed a convicted narcotics smuggler to get him to supply the money to buy the cocaine. Hisattorney stated in Time (March 19, 1984), "This [was] a fictitious crime. Without the government, there would be no crime." The DeLorean defense team did not call any witnesses. DeLorean was found not guilty due to entrapment on August 16, 1984.[13]

So we've got a basic 'identity' issue (are you male, female, or mixed).  We'll call that 'gender'.

Then, you've got a 'who' that you want to do, and that 'who' has a gender, let's call that 'gender preference'.

Then you have a question as to whether or not you want to be the 'actor' or the 'acted upon' in a sexual relationship.  The gay folks define this as 'top' and 'bottom' (or 'switch').

Then you have the question of 'control' of the relationship (very similar to the last point, but intellectual, not sexual).  Let's use dom and sub for that.

In defining the last two, it might be easier to use an example of a dom partner in a relationship who is only happy when their 'slave' has penetrated them adequately.  They are 'in control', but they are the 'bottom' (dom and bottom).

3x3x3x3 is 81 different 'identities' to work with in a sexual match-up.

Myself, I'm a male/het/switch/switch/switch (boring to always stay the same, yano?).
