Why It’s Moral To Defy Trump’s Immoral Crackdown On Immigrants

What’s the point of perpetuating religion if all we do is remain seated for the next responsive reading? Personally, if my religion doesn’t lead to action, I’m done with it. And if I can’t do that in a group, I’m going to find another group.

#OKAY
#LOOK
#IF YOU AREN’T JEWISH I’M NOT SURE I CAN EXPLAIN THE SIGNIFICANCE OF A JEWISH PROTESTER DOING IT IN TALIT
#TALIT IS SACRED
#IT’S CARRIED AROUND IN ITS OWN SPECIAL POUCH LEST IT CATCH EVEN A SPECK OF DUST OR DIRT
#IT IS TO BE TAKEN OFF IF ONE GOES TO THE BATHROOM
#TO WEAR IT WHILE DOING AN ACT OF PROTEST
#IS TO DECLARE THE ACT - NOT MERELY “HOLY”
#NOT IN THE WORD’S GENERIC SENSE -
#BUT AN ACT OF MITZVA
#SOMETHING THAT MUST BE DONE
#AND WHERE THE THING PROTESTED AGAINST IS PART OF AN AGENDA
#IT’S TO DECLARE WAR ON SAID AGENDA
#AN UTTER CONDEMNATION OF IT
#IT’S THE SPLIT-SECOND OF THE OBSERVER’S BREATH STOPPING
#AT ONE TAKES IT ALL IN: THE POSITION OF PROTEST - THE THREAT TOWARDS THE PROTESTER - THE TALIT - AND THE EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE

#Only way he could make it more pointed is to wear Tefilin as well#which would be him declaring that the act is the equivalent of prayer#not only a mitzva#but a call to G-d to end this

@vaspider hoping the cultural interpretations are accurate, this seems as though it would be meaningful to you.

Yes.

protip if you ever eat too much sour/acidic shit and you burn layers off your tongue suck on a tums tablet cause theyre used as stomach antacids but i didnt consider that it would act immediately on acidic surfaces but it does and it provides temporary tongue comfort

this would have been useful information when i murdered my mouth eating ten warheads in a row

hey quick question what was going through your mind when doing that

“urghurhur im love eat sour”

it was a bad call

Imagine hating homeless people so much u find ways to make their lives shittier instead of providing them with the resources they need

and unfortunately this isn’t the first time people have did things against poor people…

…THIS SHIT NEEDS TO END NOW 

“hostile architecture” is one of those things that sounds like it should be awesome from the name

and then you find out what it actually means and are filled with violent nausea

Destroying Hostile Architecture is an act of human decency

There was a bridge where i went to school, under which homeless people hung out a lot. Where I met this guy Bill. This guy who’d been fired from his job as an air traffic controller for testing positive for weed, whose wide had left him and taken everything. We sat there talking for like hours and he shared his vodka with me and offered me a smoke even though he had next to nothing.

And i come back to visit a year later and the motherfuckers have cemented fucking jagged rocks to all the support structures so nobody can sit on them i was fucking livid i hate this shit so much this man had the clothes on his back, a plastic bottle of booze, and a pack of cigarettes, and a place to rest. That’s it. That’s all he had and he still had the kindness and generosity to share what little he had with me, someone who didn’t need it at all

You know what come to think of it, i haven’t met a single homeless person who hasn’t at least offered me a cigarette or something when i’ve talked to them and you sons of bitches won’t even let them have a place to sit down for 5 fucking minutes

If you see this shit and you’re physically able, break it. Get rid of it. Put a mattress over those spikes between pillars

Anyone who thinks homeless people are a nuisance or an inconvenience should have every single thing that they own and hold dear removed from them for at least a year and see how they fucking like it!

like, instead of wasting money to build these horrific sharp anti-homeless crap, how about they donate it to shelters instead??? 

Like this is just to keep up ~aesthetics~ instead of putting human life first

The great nutrient collapse

scinerds:

“What struck me is that its application is wider,” Loladze recalled in an interview. Could the same problem affect grass and cows? What about rice and people? “It was kind of a watershed moment for me when I started thinking about human nutrition,” he said.

In the outside world, the problem isn’t that plants are suddenly getting more light: It’s that for years, they’ve been getting more carbon dioxide. Plants rely on both light and carbon dioxide to grow. If shining more light results in faster-growing, less nutritious algae—junk-food algae whose ratio of sugar to nutrients was out of whack—then it seemed logical to assume that ramping up carbon dioxide might do the same. And it could also be playing out in plants all over the planet. What might that mean for the plants that people eat?

What Loladze found is that scientists simply didn’t know. It was already well documented that CO2levels were rising in the atmosphere, but he was astonished at how little research had been done on how it affected the quality of the plants we eat. For the next 17 years, as he pursued his math career, Loladze scoured the scientific literature for any studies and data he could find. The results, as he collected them, all seemed to point in the same direction: The junk-food effect he had learned about in that Arizona lab also appeared to be occurring in fields and forests around the world. “Every leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,” Loladze said. “We are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human history―[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.”

He published those findings just a few years ago, adding to the concerns of a small but increasingly worried group of researchers who are raising unsettling questions about the future of our food supply. Could carbon dioxide have an effect on human health we haven’t accounted for yet? The answer appears to be yes—and along the way, it has steered Loladze and other scientists, directly into some of the thorniest questions in their profession, including just how hard it is to do research in a field that doesn’t quite exist yet.

Today marks the second time the Department of Awesome Antiquities has found adorable paw prints unintentionally preserved for posterity. The first time it was a dog’s prints preserved in ancient Roman tiles. These tiny toeses frozen in time belonged to a cat back in 16th century Japan who walked across a brand new earthenware plate before it had hardened.

This plate was recovered from the ruins of Yuzuki Castle located in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Shikoku, Japan. The castle was destroyed in 1585, but this precious plate survived.

The House just passed HR36 aka the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a law that would ban abortion after 20 weeks nationwide and punish those who perform them after that point with up to five years in prison.

Contact your senators and demand that they vote NO to eroding what’s left of our right to control our own bodies and reproductive fates.

Contact your representatives and give them a piece of your mind.

Text RESIST to 50409.

Call the U.S. Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Call the U.S. House of Representative Switchboard at (202)225-3121. 

Most abortions done after four months often mean that the fetus is non-viable. It’s usually a medical emergency which means either there is a health issue for the child or the mother. if you keep a dead or dying fetus inside of you, you may die too. please call your senator.

Republican gutter scum who oppose abortion because they think that hard scientific facts are make believe but a book written by someone who didn’t know what toilet paper is is unquestionably the truth make the “Belief system” of Tom Cruise look rational and well thought out by comparison

Trump’s administration deleted data on Puerto Rico’s crisis from FEMA’s website

berniesrevolution:

The Trump administration has removed statistics from a federal website that revealed how dire the crisis in Puerto Rico remains in the wake of Hurricane Maria, according to a new report.

As Jenna Johnson reports for the Washington Post, sometime between Wednesday and Thursday morning, the Federal Emergency Management Agency removed information that showed only half of Puerto Ricans have electricity and only 5 percent of the island has electricity. The website was set up to document the federal response to the hurricane.

A FEMA spokesperson told the Post that information about the electricity and water access are still publicly accessible on Status.pr, a site run by Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rosselló. That website is in Spanish.

On Friday, House Democrats criticized Trump’s administration for the removal of the information. “In response to the complete devastation in Puerto Rico, we have seen President Trump focus more on his public perception than on actually providing life-saving food, water, electricity, and medical aid to the Puerto Rican people whose lives are on the line,” Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM), chair of the Hispanic Caucus, said in an email to Vox. “I am outraged by the lack of transparency.”

President Trump has praised his administration’s “amazing” response to the hurricane, tweeting that the White House is doing “a GREAT job.” But as Vox’s Alexia Fernández Campbell has reported, the Trump administration has been slow to respond at virtually every step

There’s a theme park that puts kids to work. Instead of offering thrill rides, KidZania lets children experience being a responsible adult. At locations in over 20 different countries, kids ages 4-14 can walk the paved streets of a kid city, work in a variety of jobs, and use their earnings to buy trinkets in the gift shop or rent electric versions of luxury cars.

stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.

seriously though this NEEDS to stop. my mother. a grownass woman of 59. had to ask me over and over again if I was sure it wasn’t ethically dubious for her to go to her employer and report harassment and terror tactics from a coworker because she didn’t “want to be a tattler.” stop teaching kids not to be “tattle-tales” because they will not grow out of it. 

This this this.

I hope this is okay to add but in addition to the above it can create immediate and dangerous problems for children, with other children.

When I was six years old, one of my first grade classmates bullied me relentlessly for a long time. When I tried to tell the teacher that he wouldn’t stop touching me, she told me that I was being a tattle-tale and disrupting the class. So he got worse and worse. Before I knew it, he was telling me that I had to let him destroy my school supplies because his daddy told him that women have to obey the word of men. The bullying culminated in him and his friend waiting until the teacher and all the other kids left at the end of the day, cornering me at my desk, then threatening to bring his dad’s gun to school and shoot me if I didn’t stop wearing my favorite boots.

I didn’t tell the teacher because that would have been ‘tattling’. I didn’t tell my parents until they asked why I was upset that night. I wound up talking to the principal with my dad, and the principal was shocked that I had been too scared to report a shooting threat.

I know that a lot of people might think a kid would definitely report something like that, but I didn’t. A lot of kids don’t. Please, please give kids the chance to tell you if something is wrong, don’t brush them off, make sure they know that they can come to you for help. Don’t make them think they’re a burden or a ‘tattle-tale’.

And you might think, “Oh, well kids should know the difference between tattling and getting help, they should know when something is important and when it’s not. They should know better.”.  They don’t.  A 3 year old does not know he doesn’t need to cry when he wanted the blue jelly bean or if the thing he’s trying to do doesn’t work, those things are important to him and he is expressing himself in the only way he has ever known and it is your job to teach him how to manage his emotions, not internalize them because they “aren’t important”.  

Little kids don’t know what’s important and what’s not.  As they get older they learn, but if you just tell them to quit complaining and deal with shit, that’s what they’ll do until it’s bigger shit that does matter and now it’s your fault that your kid feels like he/she can’t express themselves when frustrated or scared or angry or whatever.  You might think  “Well, he’s 5 now, he should know.”  Just, inherently?  By osmosis?  Did you even hold a child-rearing book against his head to increase the chances of successful osmosis?  NO?  Then I’m guessing you didn’t teach him that his feelings are valid but there are appropriate and effective responses, and which those are.

Also:  Stop bullying your fucking kids into being bullies.  “Man up” and “Deal with it” are not appropriate parenting techniques.  You just told your kid that his/her problem doesn’t matter and they should just cram it deep down and stop bothering you with their emotions.  

Yeah, you’re old as fuck and your kid’s problem seems stupid and asinine, but your kid isn’t old as fuck and that problem is new and they don’t know what to do about it.  Don’t be a dick.  

THIS

I was bullied to the point of suicidal ideation in middle school. I went from a straight A student to failing and frequenting detention because I didn’t do the work and slept through classes so I wouldn’t have to deal with classmates. I would fake (or work myself up to) stomach aches to hide in the nurse’s office. I’d hide in the library during free periods. I constantly told teachers and counselors about what I was enduring, to no effect and my counselor telling my mom I was a complainer, that I was just paranoid when she confronted him. (She didn’t believe him, but was powerless to do anything.)


To this day I frequently second guess my ability to tell if I’m being mistreated. I still fear I am paranoid, blowing things out of proportion, and not worth making a fuss about it. I need others to reassure me that when someone is cruel to me, that I am right in my assessment of such, and no matter how many times this happens, I don’t think it’ll ever go away.


And for mentally ill or developmentally disordered children, who have trouble dealing with scale and scope when it comes to their emotions, it’s such a scary, hopeless thing.

The “be grateful you have a job” sentiment always sticks in my craw because it is never paired with “be grateful you have employees” and “be grateful we have customers.”

This is a 3-way street. Economic mana doesn’t just drip from the heavens.

Also, don’t let your boss make you feel like your paycheck is a gift. You worked for it, you probably produced significantly more money than is in it, so don’t let your employer imply that being paid is some kind of special kindness that you should thank them for.

it’s so dumb that piercings and tattoos can impact your ability to find a job. employers shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or level of punk-rockness

If you were about to have a surgery done, would you feel comfortable if she/he had gages and tattoos all over their face?

I mean presumably they went to medical school I literally would not give a single shit what they decided to put on their face

My first major surgery was done by a clean cut, gorgeous man with a French accent.

Didn’t stop him from fucking up my surgery and losing his license to practice here because he liked to do cocaine before surgery.

Its almost like how someone looks doesn’t dictate their qualifications.

I need volunteers

For what?

I’m going to the airport wearing an expensive black dress with a diamond necklace and glasses of champagne in both hands, waltzing through, casually reminding my chauffeur to haul my bags in for me. I need 4-5 attractive people (race+gender doesn’t matter) wearing clothes that are not better than mine, and cool sunglasses begging me not to leave, on their knees, barely grasping my dress because they want me to stay but at the same time they know the dress is worth more than anything they can ever afford. Turning around every so slightly and almost spilling, but not quite all the way there, my champagne, I’ll laugh and say quite loudly, “darlings I have to visit my ACTUAL husband!”

how do i get in on this

So, if you’re like me and work in a place with public bathrooms, you most likely have seen this shit before. Some racist fuck graffiti’d up your bathroom with nazi bullshit with a permanent marker.

Tired of this bullshit? Me too, so I’m gonna show you how to get rid of it nice and quick! 

The tools you need: A cleaner appropriate for the surface, the appropriate tool to to wipe said surfaces, and the crucial piece: A dry erase marker.

It’s embarrassingly easy to get rid of and is gonna make those nazi fucks upset that we don’t tolerate their bullshit. 

Just grab your marker…

…and draw over it

then you spray it with your cleaner and then… wipe

ta-fucking-da

now you too can use your new-found hack to get rid of sharpie graffiti

remember kids: fuck fascists, fuck nazis and racists, and fuck white supremacy 

One of my favorite tricks.
