Journal Entry: Wed May 14, 2014, 4:13 PM
Laughing Rabbit is back (props if you caught the video game reference.)

I'm back online, however, I can't promise I'll be active, post new art anytime soon or reply the the 63 some odd comments I've received over the course of the few months I've been on hiatus. I've been doing a balancing act on not being homeless, so far, I'm successful, and I hope it lasts. (I make to much to be effected by Maryland's minimum wage increase anytime soon, but to little to afford much in living arrangements.)

I'm feeling something similar to Gordon Comstock in the Orwell book, "Keep The Aspidistra Flying," where the exhaustion as a result of my job and general chaos of my life has left me little energy to put ideas to paper. Fortunately, someone was kind enough to gift me a Kindle fire tablet recently, and I've found a good app by auto-desk to sketch on the pad during my lunch breaks. However, I have fat finger syndrome and too stingy to buy a good stylus combined with the limitations of a touch screen, so drawing on it takes more time and patience than with a pencil, so I don't expect to post too many drawings from my tablet.

as for MAGD (Maryland Alliance for Grassroots Democracy), we haven't achieved much, due to general chaos associated with all of our members lives. Between work, kids, and some of us balancing school on-top of it all, we don't have much time to do much else beyond survive. Its a bit of a flaw in the whole, grassroots, bottom up method of organizing.

Yours in Revolution,
The Laughing Rabbit

I'm a founding member of a fledgeling activist group in Southern Maryland. Our Current focus is to fight the growing level of Gentrification in the area.

Current News

The recent approval for Lexington Park to be a medical tax credit area has lead to MedStar and Chery Cove to begin plans for the construction of a clinic on Greatmills road. The area has been in need of a clinic for some time, as many low income residents are very far away from any clinic. However, the plans are to redevelop Lord Calvart Mobile home park, which is the largest mobile home park in the county, displacing hundreds of residents. Despite all of the vacant spots in the area, they have seen fit to displace the residents this clinic was suppose to help.

SIGN THE PETITION

Any residents of Southern Maryland, please sign this petition to help stop the "redevelopment" of Lord Calvert Park. Although non-local support is welcome, signatures from residents of Southern Maryland have more meaning in a Southern Maryland specific issue.

If I'm right, the black rose is a poke at the war of the roses, used to express that you're an anarchist-socialist?

Actually, the black rose has a bit of history to it. The Rose clenched in a fist has long been a symbol of socialism, and Black the color of anarchism. For years, Black Rose was the name of an anarchist newspaper. Also, in Irish history, the black rose was a symbol of Irish Nationalism (more accurately self-determinism than nationalism), from a song called "Róisín Dubh," which started out as a love song, but it's meaning changed over time.
