happy sort of bad thing not exactly a genocide, baby!

armenian genocide memorial khachkar, cambridge mass.

"President Barack Obama on Friday refrained from branding the massacre of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey a "genocide," breaking a campaign promise while contending his views about the 20th century slaughter had not changed."-Desmond Butler and Ben Feller/AP

even in france it is the law to recognize the slaughter by ottoman turks of over a million armenians on their own home soil as a genocide. in 1984 the US senate recognized april 24 as a day of remembrance in particular for "the victims of the genocide perpetrated in Turkey between 1915 and 1923" against the armenian people( House Joint Resolution 247). now our kowtowing whore of a president can't even bring himself to do what he promised to get all those armenian american votes- call the muslim pigs of turkey out for what they did and continue to deny. today it is a crime complete with jail time in turkey for calling the ruthless slaughter of the armenian people- and assorted assyrians and greeks- a genocide- it's ' unturkish'. how horrible for obamarama to be unturkish.

24 us states recognize the armenian genocide pointedly for what it was. while not bowing to saudi kings our most important representative is giving out muslim you get to pass on genocide blow jobs. the us government has never technically recognized the armenian genocide. however, water boarding a handful of scum bags( who do far worse to their captured enemies let alone to their females and homosexuals) is an atrocity but not the willful destruction of a people based on their ethnicity. that's 1.5 million people who can't vote- so hope and change doesn't apply to them. furthermore, the armenians were not muslim but christian people as were the assyrians and greeks killed. the failure to recognize this wholesale slaughter as ethnically directed by a certain people in political/military power is further compounded by the idea that it just may represent a koran approved jihad against nonmuslims. it's the big scary truth the religion of peace will do just about anything to obscure- nonbelievers can be slaughtered and probably should be. obama is the perfect lap dog for these murderous freaks , thugs and nazis. everyone made nice with hitler for years and look what happened. why does anyone expect any different to happen vis a vis islam which represents not so much a religion but a system of government called a theocracy.

the armenians , assyrians and greeks of early 20th century turkey just may be classified as victims of muslim jihad against nonmuslims and everyone's too spineless and blinded by islam lying bullshit to see and acknowledge it. word- they are lying to you about their true intentions so they can enslave you. lying and slavery and murdering nonbelievers are all sanctioned by the koran.

this past friday was obama's 94th day in office and the 94th anniversary of the beginnings of the major thrust of the armenian genocide. he celebrated it by not recognizing the genocide because he's a bitch of muslims- something we will all, i am afraid, be made to pay for with more innocent lives.

please write your congress person and demand the passing of House Resolution 252 to recognize the Armenian Genocide. this resolution was filed by the representatives of massachusetts- finally good for something.

" there's no plan/ it had to happen"

a pretty good thrifting day despite the sad news of bea arthur's death.

i'm not a snob about what i'll collect-i'll take in cd's usually especially if they're of vinyl i already have but i go for vinyl first.

christina and i played this quite a bit when it came out- 'compulsion' from martin l. gore's counterfeit ep. nice to have it on cd. he did another album of covers recently- i have it somewhere but haven't listened to it. 'compulsion' is a cover of an artist named joe crow ( on cherry red's pillows and prayers comp.) whose version which i also like follows.

i have all the herb alpert and the tijuana brass records which isn't a particularly spectacular achievement considering every thrift store you go into anywhere in the us on any given day has at least one herb alpert in their record stacks. they were insanely popular records- the brass sold something like 80 million records world wide and had 4 albums in the top ten simultaneously in 1966- the only act to have done so. anyway having them on cd is a treat.' the lonely bull', 'spanish flea', 'a taste of honey' rock the fucking discotheque. alpert was the "a" in a&m records. he also has near perfect pitch on a fucking trumpet.

no day of digging the crates is complete without new wave on vinyl:

obscure from washington state and led by 3 women: the visible targets autistic savant lp.

rough trade live direct to disc. carol pope was an out lesbian in the early 80's- an oddity. one of new wave's greatest voices.

rock the box, bitch. sylvester.

i'm a complete whore for eurotrash disco like this-iio' rapture'. curiously i had the cd but found the 12 inch vinyl.
