Wow looks like someone did what should be done to every empty lot in the city. Very cool, it’s a start.
As for politics, I’m an anarchist. I hate governments and rules and fetters. Can’t stand caged animals. People must be free.
Referring to Bradley as Breanna Manning
June 27, 2012
As The People’s Record continues to cover whistleblower news relating to Wikileaks and Breanna Manning, many readers have had questions about us referring to Pfc. Manning as “Breanna.”
Breanna Manning, also known as Bradley, was arrested in May 2010 in Kuwait for releasing thousands of classified cables to Wikileaks. However, once the Army intelligence analyst was arrested, her greatest fears weren’t a life sentence or years in solitary confinement.
In June 2010, conversations between Manning and former hacker Adrian Lamo were released to the public and offered insight into the whistleblower’s involvement with Wikileaks.
She also confided in Lamo that she was having gender identity issues and feared being publicized as a man.
“I wouldn’t mind going to prison for the rest of my life, or being executed so much, if it wasn’t for the possibility of having pictures of me… plastered all over the world press… as boy…” (Source)
A few days after Manning had confided in Lamo, she was arrested in Kuwait after Lamo informed the FBI and the Army about the leaked cables.
Manning has been held in conditions classified by Amnesty International as “inhumane,” including 23 hours in solitary confinement each day, daily strip searches and deprivation of pillows, sheets and often times clothing and her glasses. Manning has lived in these conditions since July 2010 for exposing war crimes, corruption, civilian murders and human rights violations, but has not been convicted of any crime. She is currently being charged with “transferring classified data” and “delivering national defense information to an unauthorized source.”
Perhaps widely acknowledging Manning’s transgender identity would have exposed her to more violence and an even more unfair trial. But The People’s Record feels it is vital to cover news surrounding the trial in the way in which she identifies – as a transgender woman. For clarification, we will always mention that Breanna is more widely known as Bradley, but in order to justly and accurately portray the struggle for truth, we will continue to recognize her transgender identity.
Breanna Manning currently faces a potential life sentence for her heroism in bringing justice to victims of war and exploitation all over the world.

this article was worded a lot nicer than I usually put it. I’m usually like “hey her name is breanna and if you would like to continue this discussion just don’t and go fuck yourself.”

In most cities the law is that a bicyclist has 3ft (sometimes 4ft) of space between the riders right side & the car door. Take the space you are entitled to.
This is why I’m not only upgrading to a 3 piece crank from an old ashtabula 1 piece, but also getting a loud ass bell.
