Update: A couple of petitions (1,2) to free Zaidi, the shoe-thrower. If anyone has any other steps that might be more efficacious, please do let us know in the comments. Back to your regularly scheduled progamming:
We have endured the worst 8 years of my life, politically and as a result in some ways personally. We have had our tax money used to kill people and destroy societies, we have seen massive giveaways to the people who needed it least and massive neglect of the people who needed it most (most spectacularly the residents of New Orleans, but many others, including tsunami victims in the initial days and people suffering under debt), we have seen warmongering and fearmongering and xenophobia and racism and religious fundamentalism and scapegoating and profound, profound, incompetence.
The worst of the implementation of utter utter heinousness and moronicism is almost over, but the effects will be with us for a long, long, long, LONG time. So to thank these fuckers for the mess they left us, send them a mess, a message that you noticed. If you have leftover shoes that you don’t need, if you are a laid-off factory worker or banker or a person who lives in a city or a country where you can’t use the roads anymore, please consider mailing your old and unnecessary footwear to:
