It was just the first of several mass protests. Another enormous crowd, one dwarfing the 2013 rally, turned out the following Saturday for the 7th annual Reproductive Rights Rally, where state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D Little Rock) reminded the assembled men, women and children that her colleagues “not one of them a doctor” had voted to criminalize women’s health care, passing an anti abortion law that made no exception for rape or incest.
In this paper I will offer an account of contemporary anti semitism in terms of Eric Gans’s “originary hypothesis” regarding the origin of language and culture. The originary hypothesis extends and revises Rene Girard’s analysis of mimetic rivalry: according to the originary hypothesis, the first sign emerged in a single event, a mimetic crisis in which the (proto) human group arrested their common and self destructive convergence upon a common object by putting forward what Gans calls an “aborted gesture of appropriation.” Representation, then, is the deferral of violence, as is, therefore, all of culture. History is the ongoing process of preserving and, where necessary and possible, replacing such means of deferral (languages, rituals, beliefs, moralities, art, and so on) which are intrinsically fragile and under constant threat from mimetic desire, rivalry and violence..

Guys however, needed a serious mullet to be cool in any way (sad but true).. To give you an idea of how impractical the style was: I normally wore size 30×30 pants but all my Jncos were at least 40×40 and I needed an extra long belt to keep them up.

Looking back it was a real blessing when the trend finally died down in nineteen ninety eight when the undertaker threw mankind off hll in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer table..
Groups of women that campaign for Trump have been staging sign waving events at prime Orlando intersections, such as the parking lot for a tropical themed restaurant called Bahama Breeze. On one recent afternoon, a dozen of them were met with a few disparaging insults, but also honks of approval. One passer by, a Vietnamese immigrant to the US named Kimberly, comes up to them to ask how she can get involved.
