Sheeba's Old View from the Window

What happened? What's happening. Sheeba's view from the window. Mine, on occasion, from wherever. Yours, from ... where.......?

Name:

Samiya Bashir’s books of poetry, Field Theories (Spring 2017), Gospel, andWhere the Apple Falls, and anthologies, including Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art, exist. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously rendered text. Sometimes light. She lives in Portland, Ore, with a magic cat who shares her obsessions with trees and blackbirds and occasionally crashes her classes and poetry salons at Reed College.

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough!

Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004

The breakdown ... red & blue ...

Hm. Now, as a Tabby, the current species-based segregation barred me from the US public school system. Still, I've read plenty of civics & U.S./European history books. It seems this red vs. blue thing has been going on far too long.

Let's shift this a bit. Perhaps ... orange vs. purple? Green vs. Gold? Foot vs. Ass? (oh yeah. we've already got that one)


I'm Sheeba Baby, and I will be a commander in fur who will NEVER mislead us into war!

Flipping the Script (part deux)



Yes ... we've already flipped 5 out of 8 states from red to blue.

Let's keep 'em comin!

Bring on Arkansas, Nevada & Ohio!
Join your brethren/sistren in Florida, Missouri, New Hampshire (by 8.9pts!), Tennessee & West Virginia & let's kick some elephant ass!

Eh, hem.

My name is Sheeba and I approved this message while choking down a particularly fuzzy hairball.

... but is Kerry the answer?

This is another interesting Brit perspective ...

... but is Kerry the answer? - [Sunday Herald]:

"Al-Qaeda sees Bush as its best bet for a continuing jihad and would only launch another terrorist atrocity in the US this year if the president looked like losing the election. By rallying Americans around the flag, George W Bush might be bombed back into office, but that is not an outcome for which anyone in 10 Downing Street will be praying. "

MY QUESTION: If we blitz Bush, will they blitz Blair? (Sheeeit, at this point, I'd even trade.)

America -- The Child Abuse Capital of the World

Yes. Let's keep on exporting our idea of freedom & democracy -- our coveted way of life!

What's this guy's IQ?

I'm a cat. My IQ is 135. I'm bored with stupidity passed off as superiority.

Bush ... are you listening?

Don't Ask, Don't Tell ...

and for God's Sake Don't Get Knocked Up!!!

Whaaaat's Race got to do ... got to do with it?!
What's race ... but a backhanded reason to discriminaaaaaate ..
