i will see this.
ZOMG. I will also see this.
Bad feelings over the bailouts and extortionary bank fees have driven millions of Americans into the arms of local credit unions. But instead of luring them back with better customer service, Big Banks are using their lobbying might to kill off credit unions, attempting to destroy a crucial tax exemption that credit unions need to survive.
Big Banks sucked up over a trillion dollars in the bailouts, but now they’re claiming that credit unions are the biggest problem to the national deficit. Banks say that credit unions cost the government $1.5 billion in lost tax revenue, but if the banks get their way, it will cost us over ten billion dollars each year in higher fees and rates.
Congress gets back from recess this week, and banks are about to kick off a big lobbying push for the fall. The banks are trying to kill consumer-friendly credit unions so that they can raise rates with impunity — but we aren’t going to let them.
Tell Bank of America and its cronies to stop their crusade against credit unions.
We can’t afford a future without credit unions. If we show the banks just how much this desperate gamble will backfire, the threat of bad publicity and another banking scandal will cause the banks to rethink their pricy lobbying push. Large-scale protests have forced banks to change their tune before, and once word gets out about the banks’ incredible greed, the backlash should send them packing.
Anytime that regulation is mentioned, bankers like to cry out about free-market principles. But banks use an army of lobbyists to shape legislation as they see fit. This time, they’ve gone too far in trying to take out the competition. If we all step up today, we can stop this in its tracks, and save consumer-friendly credit unions from extinction.
So I went off this morning a bout HS here
because I keep saying , I don’t want to PUNISH HIM . I want to protect and build for US .
( Copyrighted by CC cause well I’m hopeful not new)
I want a better world.
for me specifically, me locationally, me intersectionally, me connectedly.
As a singular person, as resident of these communities I move through, as a member of the categories I inhabit,have lived, will live, may want to live, lived and never want to love again. As a friend, a child, a family member, as a loved one, as a lover of ones, as a citizen, as a bystander, as an audience. I want each moment , to be as good or better, I want it to feel good, and safe , like I’m in control.
After these past couple months, but culminating over these YEARS of blogging, I keep getting asked that and it’s always felt like a weapon?
" What do you want?"
What do you actual want instead of complaining you whining crying black, fat, do nothing not good enough attention seeking stupid hating ass hater?
Now I am being asked that question in love.
And it requires pause.
I think all of us who do the work in a certain way do that .
" If things get better for ( insert my groups here). My personal wants will too and I’ll do good , so let me sublimate those and focus on the goal"
Most of my heroines did that , work tirelessly fiercely , develop strong careers , enduring reputations, godlike patience and incredible praise . Tinged with the sorrow of how often it was personally taxing or unstable, seemingly alone.
What I want from WAM/Seal Press/Blogging/ Femfuture/Hugo/femfuture retreat/ etc …
I <3 this show and I extra <3 So Ji Sub now.
I can’t help but think that the Hong Sisters deliberately found someone who looked like Cha Seung-won (sans goatee) so they could call back to the steaming hot chemistry in The Greatest/Best Love (also starring Gong Hyo-jin). I’ve only watched the first episode of The Master’s Sun but I spent half of the episode going ‘wait, Dokko-jin?!’
He is very Dokko Jin like. Even the way he talks sometimes, I could swear it’s Cha Seung Won.
I <3 this show and I extra <3 So Ji Sub now.
hope youre all well. i could honestly be better. while we had been keepin afloat ok and i thought i was gettin out the woods, this week has been kinda rough.

help a mom.
Reblog + donate if you can!
the most discouraging and upsetting thing in wake of all this crap to me is how many people have said “who are those people?” (that is: black amazon, brownfemipower, flavia) and what happened?
i really hope people use the “opportunity” to interrogate why nobody seems to know about the history of women of color in the blogosphere, especially because so much of our history coincides with the history of white women. why do you know the history of white women, but don’t know the basic rudimentary relationship they had with their woman of color contemporaries? why don’t you know our history as it exists outside of the relationship with white supremacy? how often does this lack of knowledge/historical awareness happen throughout US feminism? from the beginning of the US in that damn senneca falls meeting?
sure, there’s been some minor roadblocks put in place, like many of us shutting our blogs down.
but…we’re all still *here*. and people like flavia and black amazon (and karnythia, so_treu, amaditalks, etc) haven’t stopped talking about hugo. you know who ALSO knows that we haven’t stopped talking? hugo. who wanted to “shut flavia the fuck up.” and who saw women of color as “being in the way.”
why was hugo so aware of our presence, but so many white feminists are just confused right now? (or “behind the curve”?)
