The barbarity of the U.S. prison gulags (both state and federal), especially as it applies to political prisoners, reflects the utter sadism, hypocrisy, and injustice of a U.S. political / judicial system that has gone stark raving mad!

The very existence of U.S. political prisoners is a serious blight upon our individual humanity, and that of this nation as a whole. (Reference: Pimping the Pain of Political Prisoners In This Bastion Of Hypocrisy http://www.blackcommentator.com/510/510_kir_pimping_pain_political_prisoners_share.html and http://107cowgate.com/2013/03/29/pimping-the-pain-of-political-prisoners-in-this-bastion-of-hypocrisy/)

It is no wonder that the political pimps, (known as politicians) of the Democrat and Republican parties, are so callously cavalier about bombing, invading, and/or militarily occupying other sovereign nations. It is no wonder that our society suffers from perpetual U.S. wars, corporate hegemony & blood sucking of ordinary people, and endless internal physical and psychological violence.

When I think of political prisoners such as Lynne Stewart, I think of the indomitable spirit of Harriet Tubman and of the martyred Irish freedom fighter Bobby Sands. When I think of Lynne Stewart, I think of the countless everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people whom her efforts served and benefited. Yes, when I think of Lynne Stewart, I also think of how she embodies what this nation might yet be -- rather than what it presently is.

Show your love for Lynne Stewart by taking action to free her while she yet lives, and bring her home -- NOW!

We need ten thousand more Lynne Stewarts, Harriet Tubmans, John Browns, Malcolm Xs, and Bobby Sands. WE are the people, just ordinary people, and it is WE, who must hold the systemic gatekeepers accountable, lest we all become their political prisoners in this increasing police / surveillance state.

This coming October 8 th, 2013 is Lynne Stewart's 74th birthday! We must re-double our efforts, intensify, and keep up the pressure to free our Sister Lynne. At stake is not only the life and freedom of Lynne Stewart -- but the collective dignity, humanity, and liberation of we everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people.

Bring Lynne home. Bring Lynne home NOW!

Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward, then, my sisters and brothers. Onward...!
