Apr10|1979 - Mar16|2003
It’s a good day to celebrate a couple of American heroes.
First, there’s this great story about how a pissed off college sophomore from Texas, Greg Watson, shamed a bunch of states into ratifying a 1789 amendment (now the 27th) to the US Constitution that prevents each session of Congress from giving itself pay-raises.
Next up is a far sadder story about a young American hero, Rachel Corrie, from Olympia, WA who gave her life protesting against the Government of Yisrael’s (GoY) apartheid policies and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.
Corrie was crushed by a Caterpillar bulldozer driven by a GoY soldier on Mar16|2003 while protesting the destruction of Palestinian homes. One notes with suspicion that Google has all but completely scrubbed her from its search results.
America needs to follow Corrie’s example, jettison all of its GoY baggage and start pushing back against GoY apartheid. And Google needs to get its shit together before the world turns on it with a fury.
