Lawmakers had to vote on Senate Bill 5 before the special session's end at 12 a.m. local time. However, more than 400 protesters halted the proceedings 15 minutes before the roll call could be completed with what they called "a people's filibuster,"I had been wondering about this new GoldmanOccupy phrase, thinking that it sounded something like old-fashioned Alinskyan mob rule but not quite the same. Now I know that it's the same. "Transforming The Conversation" is just plain old mob rule. Violent murderous Satanthugs are able to control everything by using raw violence, reinforced by the universal support of Satan's media. Satan wins. Abortion wins. Murdering children is still required by the law of Satan, which is the "law" of this miserable fucked dead country.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
