Welcome back [9. 15. 10 // @ 5 : 00 pm]
Lately, I have been thinking. A dangerous task if there ever was one. How do I kill myself without dieing? That's a metaphor (said in Tracy Morgan voice).

If something bugs you, If something is getting you down, use your agency. Change it. So somehow I have to figure out a way for me to be different. I'll get back to you on that one.

P.S. Alcohol is both the cause and solution to all my (read:the worlds) problems.

Thank you and goodnight.

P.S- Kill the shit. No more ACA dead beat dad crap. Tell me something I don't know.

Hirst, Paul and Grahame Thompson. 1999. Globalization in question: the international economy and possibilities of governance 2nd ed. Cambridge: polity press.

• Social life determined by global processes. National cultures, economies and borders are dissolving.
• Scepticism about global economic processes and optimism about the possibilities of control of international economy and viability of national political statrategies.

Mishra, Ramesh BEYOND the nation state : Social policy in an age of globalization Social Policy & Administration; Dec98, Vol. 32 Issue 5, p481-500, 20p http://web.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail?vid=2&hid=102&sid=e1a3f635-f201-4ce8-abce-c5b5a1c02330%40sessionmgr109&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#db=buh&AN=3462330

• The paper proceeds from the assumption that globalization has placed significant constraints on the autonomy of nation states in the making of social policy. It argues that the post-World War II welfare state represented a social system highly successful in combining economic efficiency and dynamism with equity and solidarity. This historic achievement at the nation-state level is being undermined by economic globalization. abstract
• Indeed, unregulated globalization with its tendency towards the residualization of welfare that we are witnessing today represents a neoliberal approach. BUT AS WE SAW IN THE LECTURE THE NATION STATE HAS EXPANDED.

Have I got news for you. [5. 28. 08 // @ 11 : 37 am]

When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

i know that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Ten Reasons Gay Marriage Is Wrong
-Homosexuality is not natural. Real christians always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

-Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

-Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets, because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

-Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

-Straight marriage will be less meaningful if homosexual marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

-Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Homosexual couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry, because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

-Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

-Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

-Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

-Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

memememememe- oh i haven't done one of these in ages. [7. 20. 07 // @ 9 : 24 am]
200 things you never wanted to know about meCollapse )

No body really gives a fuck so just do it your way. [7. 16. 07 // @ 9 : 37 am]
I am sitting here trying to get into si-net and sign on or tutes for michael because he is skiing and "where it snows, no internet goes" or so it seems, thus i am updating.

My holidays have been fairly uneventful. I went and saw Harry potter and i went to 'pig city'.

I will talk about pig city a little but before i do i will talk about the day before the concert when the uni held like a discussion on brisbane music and the political context. It was really interesting. speakers included andrew staford (author of pig city: the saints to savage garden), lindy morrison (the go betweens), ian rogers (iron on), the dude from screamfeeder, a bunch of industry professionals and john birmingham. it was really interesting and very funny. I honestly wish i had taken notes.

Moving on, the concert/ festival (which i was late for because i had to work) was also very funny. A i think i was the youngest person there, the average age being 50. my favorites were Kev Carmody and the riptides. i also saw the siants, regurgitater, the parameters, kate mila-heikie (don't know how you spell it and don't care, she pisses me off), the ups and downs, pineapples from the dawn of time... i think that's it but i'm getting forgetful in my old age.

si-net being down is really starting to bug me.

this semester i am doing intro to journalism and communication ,social being: power, structure and agency, gender, sexuality and society and modern political institutions. Do i have any classes with anyone?

ok that's enough for me. peace out.

if you want to be my lover you gotta get with my friends. [6. 29. 07 // @ 3 : 38 pm]

behind the cut is pics of me ready to zombie walk. ellie, i was really upset to learn that i'm not even worth a text from you to tell me you pulled out.
i think that was really rude, particully since you were so pumped about it. and since i only suggested because you spoke so highly of it last year.
