Just a few random thoughts while my ears are still ringing and the smell of smoke from the casino is still in my clothes.


I had read about a lot of the previous QAL shows and watched a bunch of videos, so I sort of knew what I was in for.

But wow.

Prior to the show I was going to start…

Anonymous said: do you even know what happens in Gaza? HAMAS IS KILLING HIS OWN PEOPLE, HAMAS BRINGING THE DEATH TO GAZA. all the people in Gaza wants to be free from hamas, and not from Israel. Israel provides them food, water and medical treatments. so before you talk shit about Israel, try to find out the truth. as a soldier from Israel I just want you to know the truth. we are trying to kill only the hamas people and they use inoccent people from gaza to protect their ass.


How is Hamas killing Palestinians? There’s never been a shred of evidence presented showing that Hamas is hiding behind civilians, when it’s well documented that Israeli soldiers use Palestinian children as human shields. It’s not for to you to decide whether a people should be “freed” from their own democratically-elected government. The Palestinians just want to live with dignity. Please consider deserting and advocate lifting the blockade and ending the occupation.

"My late father was in Auschwitz. My late mother was in Majdanek concentration camp. Every single member of my family on both sides was exterminated. Both my parents were in the Warsaw ghetto uprising. And it is precisely and exactly because of the lessons they taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians. And I consider nothing more despicable than to use their suffering, and their martyrdom, to try to justify the torture, the brutalization, the demolition of homes, that Israel gainly commits against the Palestinians. So I refuse any longer to be intimidated or brow-beaten by the tears. If you had any heart in you, would be crying for the Palestinians."

"The pursuit of a militarized and enforcement-led global ‘war on drugs’ strategy has produced enormous negative outcomes and collateral damage," says the 82-page report. "These include mass incarceration in the US, highly repressive policies in Asia, vast corruption and political destabilization in Afghanistan and West Africa, immense violence in Latin America, an HIV epidemic in Russia, an acute global shortage of pain medication and the propagation of systematic human rights abuses around the world."

"People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is a ruling class in a capitalist society."
