Blackwater Mercenaries Deploy in New Orleans
By Jeremy Scahill and Daniela Crespo Saturday 10 September 2005
New Orleans - Heavily armed paramilitary mercenaries from the Blackwater private security firm, infamous for their work in Iraq, are openly patrolling the streets of New Orleans. Some of the mercenaries say they have been "deputized" by the Louisiana governor; indeed some are wearing gold Louisiana state law enforcement badges on their chests and Blackwater photo identification cards on their arms. They say they are on contract with the Department of Homeland Security and have been given the authority to use lethal force. Several mercenaries we spoke with said they had served in Iraq on the personal security details of the former head of the US occupation, L. Paul Bremer and the former US ambassador to Iraq, John Negroponte.

obviously given my current situation I cannot afford to simply pull up stakes and go to the gulf coast, thought I do want to… but I can go there for a 3 month paid 12 hour a day expenses paid and hourly paid stint with FEMA… the only problem is that FEMA seems more a part of the problem than the solution… not I could still do it and hope that I could be a shining light of real concern and competence in the middle of their bullshit… but I simply can’t decide… any input based upon this info?

    I’m sick again, I just woke up from a fever breaking nap… in which I had this dream… [Aug. 10th, 2005|07:22 pm]
    Tabitha Fringe Chase
    [state of being |nauseateddamn it sick again blarg]

    I was living in the aftermath of some kind of random apocalypse, in a dug out mud hut decorated in such a way that I can only assume it was constructed in what used to be a city. I was sick and some parental figure brought me some food, I ate most of it but found a living, (injured), black snake in it, (the cooking process had changed his skin to partially white but most of him was black. I was horrified and ran to the kitchen, (which was in a much more well finished house), I set him on the counter and attempted to get him some water, when I looked up he had gone and the floor was full of fast running water, I kept pushing against the water and calling out the snake’s name to which I was apparently privi, “Euraga”, so upon waking I was very concerned and wanted to know what/who “euraga” is, as I had been trying to fish him out of the water and was screaming his name in my dream… apparently after some small web sleuthing, “euraga” is and only is the german word for Austria… so hey if I’m psychic something fucked up is about to happen in Austria… or maybe I just have a fever…

    Pictures of patriarchy and real honest to whatever irony… [Aug. 7th, 2005|04:13 am]
    Tabitha Fringe Chase
    [state of being |enragedfuck off ass holes!]

    Holy friggin crap, today I spoke with a dear friend at the echo’s of violence conference, (a men stopping violence con here in Atlanta), on sex work from the view of sex workers. Now I knew there was a great chance that it was going to be utterly ridiculous, as the backing here is almost all second wave feminist, and anti-sex industry rhetoric, but hey all the more reason that people actually in the industry need to talk, all the more reason that the topic would really need to be covered, so off I went. For the first hour or so, there was little in terms of attacks, though one man did ask me if I, “would like to be forced to be pounded in the ass by 6 different men in one night”, to which I answered, “personally no”, (this is only the begging of a long slew of frankly sexist and harassing comments from MEN at a men stopping violence conference made to me and to c), then after that hour things took a turn for the worse, we had been mostly getting the group to talk amongst themselves, and ask us questions, as neither of us were comfortable with having our experiences in the sex industry be the only ones covered, each time either of us answered questions involving our own experiences or opinions, we made it clear that we were speaking only for ourselves. The stack of people was pretty thick, and I guess just to make the irony thicker, one older white male in the back stood up with his hand raised to make sure I knew he wanted to speak, (note the stack was 7 deep when he firs rose his hand, but I guess he thought his POV was more important than those who had come before him), he then immediately said that he was disappointed with, “the politeness in the room in the face of the fact that She and I were clearly not representative of all sex workers”, he told me that “feminists are anti-sexwork”, (oh silly me and here this little poor oppressed needing to be saved girl I am I thought I was a feminist, guess I needed a white man to clear the meaning of feminism up for me), began to demand that a panel be organized of a more representative grouping of women before there could be any more talk on the matter, and that I personally somehow vouch that the sex industry is a great and wonderful thing for everyone involved… it just went down hill from there, we held our own though and we received applause at the end, there were many heated turnings of phrase, my favorite being “look this is how it seems to me, those of us that are pro-sexwork, and who are sex workers, it’s like we are trying to fix the leaks in the roof, and there are a lot of holes, but all the while you are standing outside screaming at the sky to stop the rain”, and, “well fine then lets talk about exploitative jobs, lets talk about the clothing industry, there is lots of organizing around sweat shops, but no one is saying we should stop wearing clothes, if we can honestly try to address the issue of sweatshops without being anti-clothing why can’t we attempt to address sexwork under the same light?”. We went into issues of union organization in the industry and that most unions don’t want to touch sex work the fact that the teamsters and AFL-CIO said no flat out to the lusty lady etc.

    Strangely most of the talk was anti-capitalist, but only in terms of sex work, as though capitalism only falters and patriarchy only wins in terms of the sex industry. There also seemed to be much confusion between consensual sex work and trafficking, wage slavery is a form of slavery yes, but frankly and simply put trafficking is real standard slavery, it isn’t work, it isn’t sex, it’s slavery and rape and there is a very big difference, I have no clue how the two have become so interwoven in the minds of so many but they are not at all related, and I find this both disturbing and flat out mocking the pain of anyone who is in fact the victim of trafficking.

    The thing that I found the most odd though was that there were several men in the group, all older and mostly caucasian, who were obviously offended by our candid answers to questions about our own personal experiences, none of the women there ever seemed offended by us, some disagreed vehemently but none seemed offended, but these older men who were so venomous in their verbal attacks as to leave my co-presenter shaking at the end were simply bound and determined to save “those women” from “the male oppressors” and that kids, that is today’s dose of legitimate fucking irony.

These guys are so crazy and awesome that they kick off ALL the time. I heard that there was this anarchist youth who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the anarchist youth put stickers over the whole town. My friend Mikhail said that he saw an anarchist youth totally argue with some kid just because the kid was selling Socialist Worker.

    Then the reset button gets hit and everything goes back to the beginning… [Jul. 21st, 2005|10:00 pm]

    [state of being |bouncyman that's better!]


    I sometimes forget that Nick is so much younger than me, and that he is just beginning to understand his emotions as they apply to a relationship. Everything should be better now, it certainly feels better. I got him to frankly and honestly talk about what was going on and all it honestly was that when I got the PTSD he began to forget the nature of our relationship, and I having a lot of trouble, (especially at first), just went with it, so we went from being partners to being more like husband and wife, something that honestly is not what either of us wanted or intended, and something that was wearing us both down. So now what is going on is we are back to our original arrangement, sometimes sleeping together sometimes sleeping apart, sleeping around all we want, doing what either of us wants when we want to with no obligation, etc. He will go to South Carolina in September, once he’s settled I will visit a few times, if I decide that I like it enough I will eventually move there too, but if we cohabitate we will each have our own rooms. He feels better and relieved, and so do I, neither one of us are cut out for the normal confines of a standard relationship, and this way we should be able to share our lives in a true sharing sense, having our own separate adventures, as well as our combined adventures, and all the while knowing that we love each other because we do!

    Man what a friggin relief! This is what I was initially looking for, we both just kind of got sidetracked…

    Now I do still have logistical issues, I should be able to stay here when we leave because it will be a good reminder instead of a painful memory, but I will still have to figure out how to get to and from work from here, maybe I could switch to 4 to 12 and do marta… hmm well that is still awhile away

    [state of being |infuriatedwhy after 27 years of looking?]

    Can anyone please explain to me why it is that right after I figure out how to fix things in my life when I can visualize it when I am starting to feel relieved, that is always when everything blows up in my face? I mean Ill be miserable for months or even years, then I’ll come up with a realistic, (non-escapist), means of achieving it, I’ll put my energy into doing that and then boom it’s all shattered and I have to try to get to that same fucking point again… why the hell should I even continue to bother dealing with tabby issues, it only serves to make me feel even worse then when I start. Honestly maybe I need to just resign myself to having a life of naught but pain and skip the small breaks in between. I am so tired of dealing with things that don’t kill me but supposedly make me stronger, reality check those things do not make me fucking stronger they just continue to tap into what little fucking strength I have left. Also I wailed today for 45 minutes in an apartment full of people and not one fucking one of them have come by to see if I you know broke my fucking leg or something… WTF?

    so much bad news today... [Jul. 20th, 2005|08:19 pm]
    Tabitha Fringe Chase
    [state of being |enragedFuck I’m gonna smoke a cig...]

    but rater than talking about the news that everyone noticed... I'd like to post an article about an extremely dangerous precedent that may be created... I'd like to talk about the fact that the U.S. may be determined to be a "battlefield in the war on terror" from a legal standpoint. This is immensely significant to me personally and also everyone else who finds themselves in anything resembling my position. Remember please that I am a, “suspected terrorist”, and, “subject of an ongoing investigation”. I haven’t talked about it much lately here, but none of it has ended; and for me it likely never will.

    You see if the U.S. is found to be a, “battlefield in the war on terror”, it is a fast slide to internment camps inside the country for anyone the administration sees as an “enemy combatant”. Hell it isn’t that far from martial law in general, if the military is given the legal right to act as a policing body within the U.S. itself, that is defacto martial law. Now I have no love for civilian law enforcement, but the rules of their game are far less ugly then the military’s. Many of you may think I am paranoid, frankly I am paranoid, because they fucking are after me. As Angela Davis said, “If they come for me in the morning, they will come for you at night.”

    Gift certificates to sevenanda
    Random BDSM tools.
    If you want me to love you forever based upon material goods, you could buy me a ceramic core (NOT WAX) violet wand… but those are beyond expensive so I can be sure that I won’t get one of those…
    Pre stretched canvas 3’X3’ or larger, and square not rectangle, (I cannot possibly have too many of these so don’t worry about speaking for them)…
    Gym membership somewhere month to month, preferably inside the city…
    Ummm random panties, I wear a small or 5/6
    Random bras I wear a 34C
    Hmmm a paintball gun and paintballs
    oooh and tattoo's and nipple piercings...
    Oh and if anyone wants to get the FBI out of my life or has a cure for post traumatic stress disorder those would be very welcomed
    Anything DIY is also a great way to make a tabby smile…
