Remember Always
Who Set It Up and Who Paid The Price

It began when left-wing activists from off-campus arrived by bus on Friday May 1 1970 to host a May Day protest rally. Kent State, a small university in northeast Ohio, had been chosen.

On the surface, the shootings were the result of student protests and irrational military action by the Ohio National Guard. The events that led up to the atrocity are rarely discussed, and those outsiders who deliberately orchestrated it were never prosecuted.

Oh, and by the way, Neil Young can go fuck himself, because it’s time for

The Second protects The First which protects us all.

This is not your run of the mill San Francisco Slutwalk.

The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words “I own my body; it’s not the source of anyone’s honor” written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia’s “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice,” reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic.

Hard to tell who she’s addressing with that sign while waddling in a parade of fugliness. I guess one of the other javelinas demanded a snack and Ms. Cerdita Hambrienta was having none of it, perhaps because the L.A. “We Have Vajayjays And You Don’t” protest march had yet to make it to the trough.

Good thing they had the hoopla outdoors because few people would enjoy the grunting and squealing in a hot humid IHOP meeting room, even if it were free and catered. And now it’s time for another big sweaty stinkin’ & stupid episode of The Overnight Open Thread.
