The new Kubby 2008 website is up, thanks to Knappster.

http://www.kubby2008.com

The previous Kubby.com was not specifically about the campaign, rather, it was a combination of everything Steve Kubby has done in the last decade or so of his life.

This one is more focused, and more modern looking, but does not have a whole ton of content yet – that’s coming soon, though.

As you can see in the staff directory, the Cannoli is now Assistant National Volunteer Coordinator of Kubby for President 2008.

At the moment, that means I’m helping set up
google groups for Kubby supporters in every state
. We have most of them done, but it will probably take a day or two more to finish. If anyone wants to help, go to the staff directory link and give Knappster, Ben Todd and myself a holler.

Knapp tells me he is working on producing radio commercials with the Sloan Ranger, a radio personality in the STL.
We’ll also probably be making TV commercial with my friend Doug Scribner, who made the pollie award winning Kubby for Governor TV commercials in 1998.

We’ll be needing some help with the print materials. This is a very rough beta which we already discussed earlier on this site.

There’s also the Kubby Blog and
myspace page.

As of yesterday, the Beyonce Viral Video
which includes Kubby was at 32,000 views.

Oh yeah, and the discussion at my last Kubby in the News update I posted is still going strong, with the most comments of any topic post on Last Free Voice so far.

THIS WEEK’S BUST of that dangerous threat to civic order, a scholarly historian.

Can you count the number of cops in the picture, boys and girls? Seven? Well, maybe. But it looks as if the champion donut-gobbler in the center may also be one of those kindly and helpful protectors of our peace and liberty. No uniform, but that does appear to be a badge on his jacket. And look — yellow police tape, too!

But of course, the crime totally justifies this show of governmental force. We must have an all-out war to end forever the deadly menace of jaywalkers!

Okay, sarcasm mode off.

The world heads for a collision course. On the one hand, the standard “hooray for the brutal cops” TV shows are to be joined this week by Armed and Famous, which puts tacky celebrities into uniform and sends them out to bust us lesser folk. (Although this may be the first time anyone’s made a TV series out of it, it’s not a new game. Shaquille O’Neal was recently caught lending entirely new meaning to the term “Shaq Attack”.) But on the other, at least a few commentators in the mainstream media are finally starting to notice and object to all the overblown brutality.

Unfortunately, you and I know that the paramilitary power ascendency is terrifyingly well entrenched and perfectly serves the purposes of its real masters. (Who, I’m sure you good blog readers hardly need the hint, aren’t you and me.) Anybody who thinks this military-style overkill began with 9-11 (as the above SF Chronicle commentator wishes to believe) hasn’t been watching. It’s had a long, long time to send down its roots. Anybody who thinks mere public indignation will end the overkill and the peacock-like displays of savagery doesn’t know the real purpose of paramilitary policing.

Besides, the people like it. And why not? It makes waaay more interesting TV than the two polite cops of Dragnet ever did. And always remember, it’s only being done to those other people. You know, the ones that are a different color or class or national origin from us and who therefore don’t count.

….for failing to file taxes properly on vodka and cigarettes that I used to steal back in Siberia when I was six and seven years old.

Not Really, but she’s a real (ex) IRS-equivalent enforcement agent.

New Year’s eve….

I said I don’t like like having my picture taken.

She said why?

And I said I’m on the run.

She told me she was Russian IRS and now I’m in trouble.

Creative dissent from the left coast. I wonder if Pelosi is a patron of the arts.

This is the kind of stuff the LP should be doing.

It kinda really sucks that we have made ourselves a lot less relevant by attratcting mostly a bunch of armchair weenies who would never go out and actually do stuff like this, plus a bunch of Republitarians who are not even for it.

Maybe that is something we can start changing with the Kubby campaign.

Here’s another story Michelle sent me about this.

Detention facility currently holds as many as 200 children incarcerated after midnight arrests

Prison Planet | January 8, 2007
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones

A detention camp in Taylor Texas that currently holds hundreds of rebuffed asylum seekers who legally entered the country, half of which are children swept up in midnight raids, is a potential prime location for the enforced transfer of American citizens during a time of national emergency.

The privatized Hutto jail, which is also administered by Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), currently interns political asylum seekers who came to the U.S. on legal visas. Most of them are families including pregnant women and children who have never been accused of any wrongdoing but are forced to endure squalid conditions inside literal concentration camps.

In 2004 the facility was on the verge of being shutdown due to lack of occupancy but new immigration policies, allied to the burgeoning growth of the prison industry and future plans to detain American citizens on masse, have revived the potential scope of the camp, and a new contract to intern 600 individuals was finalized with immigration authorities in December 2005.

The facility is euphemistically called a “Residential Center,” yet c harges of overcrowding and poor conditions are rife , with an estimated 645 people filling a facility that has only 512 beds.

“Innocent children should not be jailed and forced to live under traumatizing and dehumanizing conditions,” said a statement from Texans United for Families, an organization that recently held a vigil protest at the facility. “It is bad policy and an impractical and inhumane response to a growing refugee crisis. The U.S. should seek alternatives to detention while making sure that it legislates policies that support families and keep them together and out of jail.”

The Infowars team recently visited the facility and were promptly told to leave the premises before having their names taken, but not before they were able to get footage of the camp “playground” where some of the children were playing behind giant mesh barbed wire. The children were kept indoors throughout the taping and were only allowed out when the film crew left to eat lunch.

Social Distortion – “I was wrong”

When I was young, I was so full of fear
I hid behind anger, held back the tears
It was me against the world, I was sure that I’d win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
I felt so alone, so insecure,
I blamed you instead and made sure I was heard
And they tried to warn me of my evil ways
But I couldn’t hear what they had to say

I was wrong, self destruction’s got me again
I was wrong, I realized now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves, well I’ve had a few
I’m sorry that I hurt them, did I hurt you too?
I took what I wanted, put my heart on the shelf
How can you love when you don’t love yourself?
It was me against the world, I was sure that I’d win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
And they tried to warn me of my evil ways
But I couldn’t hear what they had to say

Well I grew up fast, I grew up hard
something was wrong from the very start
I was fighting everybody, I was fighting everything
but the only one that I hurt was me
I got “society’s” blood running down my face,
Somebody help me get outta this place
How could someone’s bad luck last so long?
until I realized that I was wrong
