A Brave Pig's Confession and Action - "Give me Liberty or Give me Death" !
Was s/he teaching many dormant human beings a lesson?

This is an old video - let me rethink about the precious FREEDOM and how to Fight For it This intelligent, brave sentient being deserves not to be slaughtered. (injured, caught....or...Not sure what happened after the heroic deed).

Miss Piggy houdt het voor gezien!

Last week, in my sociology class, the notion of FREE WILL was briefly mentioned by a student, for this is the land of the Brave and the Free when we analyzed both the ascribed statuses (such as attributes born into, e.g., skin color, sex, social class...etc. and statues assumed involuntarily, such as a disabled vet) vs. achieved statuses (accomplishments based on what one is given socio-biologically, born into and assumed voluntarily, such as an honor student or a felon).I did think of the above video!

How many can claim freedom (or Free Will ! if you like) anytime, anywhere, and anyhow and resist the improper constraints - using real life instances- the credit cards/over consumption, student loans/educapitalism, paychecks/job, the black-boxed policy-making, blind conformity, repressive consumption culture, psycho-economic-religious ideological constraints, and the rest of visible and invisible social forces. But I did remind them that they did have 100% FREE will to choose how to do an excellent assignment and project, as well as choose to attend classes !

Is this a SISSY sport? !

Ohhh, well, either sissy, silly, or sexy, if I had a daughter or son, this type of sport will be O.K. !
Surly, very capitalism-unfriendly: all you need to spend and consume are - fresh air, green-green grass,  bubbles, and laughter!

The scenario is quite similar to encouraging the appreciation of solar and alternative energies !

The medical teams will focus on real people who are really ill not the mass man-made or artificial injuries/sickness. Save medical resources for proper usage;

The athletes might be less violent and unethical; less likely chase fleeting money, sex, and fame;

The sport teams might commit less domestic crimes, drugs, alcohols, PTSD...etc, and reduce sport gambling and sex trafficking;

The team owners might divest or invest other businesses;

The whole invisible 25-billion enterprise annually of NFL might rethink their habitual business operations and the unintended consequences on the national destiny (Woow, very global!!!!)

Cheerleading will convert the showing boobs-n-legs things into other positive role-modeling business to your daughters;

There will be no expensive and limited-function sport attires and gears. Save resources and understand the social-cost-consumption;

Your children might not be role-modeled into improper direction;

Your kids can pursue Jesse the mind as well, not just only the BODY;

and people might discover,  in addition to sport, reading books can stimulate the adrenal gland and testosterone, not to mention - imagination!!

Crystal Huang One of the best parts of a football game (excluding the unpleasant parts, such as players' domestic violence, the brutal/unethical bounty incentives...etc...just to name a few ) is to watch a quarterback with certain kind of weaknesses (which might remind that we have too) struggling as well as managing for a winning game.

That's a  good reason why the Mannings, Brady...etc. never really catch my sport attention. And I like to watch players in the defense games more than those of the offense's. As to the coaching team, the owner's team, the whole invisible NFL (except the KIND Pinky things all over the field)..etc, to me, haha - out of sight, out of mind !

Don't get me wrong about the pinky things, even though we all are aware how this national best past-time entertainment consuming how much the whole country's time, money, energy and resources!! , (Surely, creating jobs too).

I should respect that the 25-billion-dollar-enterprise expresses the care of a very FAMOUS disease of women, if genuinely, not just for damage-reparation, image-management, or packaged-advertisement! Be in sync! And honestly speaking, sometimes, I do enjoy it, not being cranky, grouchy, and whining to ruin he good time and good mood !

Crystal Huang Surely, we shall not judge past from today's standards. But, just for a basic understanding how History can be a make-believe system, in particular, written by the Powerful, the Rich, and the Ruthless!!!

Upon arriving in the islands on Oct 12, 1492, now referring to as the Bahamas, here are messages by Columbus' own words from his personal journal capturing the ominous fate that awaited the Arawaks:

"They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane. They would make fine servants. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want...." For more details, refer to

Some parents (who was taping this clip?) allow their children (this one has a pet, not a poor kid?? See a different type of kids below) to be brutal to other sentient beings. From the early child development, children learn inhumane behaviors to harm, hurt, and kill other voiceless, powerless beings, what can you expect when they grow up? This little being finally fought back.... Hopefully this kid's parent did not harm it... Whose fault???
