Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust

"We are going to lay down to join our dead brothers and sisters from the womb, rather than donate this time and effort into helping the sentient and suffering."
Again, none of you were at immediate risk to be aborted. You’re not survivors.

Also, don’t you fucking dare appropriate the word ‘holocaust’ for your own selfish, ignorant “activism” you disgusting, anti-Semitic, misogynistic garbagebags.

lay down and do nothing
now THAT…. is activism.


There are people who survived abortion, and lost a twin. And the whole point of the pro-life movement is about the unborn child’s right to life. Which is not how many people view a fetus. So this may not be doing anything physical, but it’s trying to change people’s perspective a little, like how feminists are trying to change how women are portrayed in our culture. A lot of it *can’t* be done by doing something like helping at a soup kitchen does, because what you’re trying to change isn’t a physical change.

Don’t be dense. The point of the pro-life movement is to control women by restricting their reproductive rights & health options. If the point was about unborn children’s rights, instead of laying on the ground, people who gave a shit might actually lobby for increased medical coverage for uninsured women or employer mandated maternity leave & fair wages & increased funding to WIC programs so women wouldn’t have to worry that caring for another child will cause them financial hardships. Real things that are actual change.

Or how about mentoring young mothers to be, or fostering & adopting children who are in the system, or being a Big Brother/Big Sister, or doing literally anything compassionate for any live human?

But it’s not about unborn children, or live ones, or mothers of any aged person, so instead pro-lifers just lay on the fucking floor like a bunch of clueless idiots hoping to guilt women into giving their wombs up to Jesus. Bless.

Obama Has Proposed 442 Tax Hikes Since Taking Office

antigovernmentextremist:

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015.

The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare.

Presented without further comment.

Of course this is presented without comment. If anyone was to comment on this, they would have to point out that most of the tax “increases” which were actually proposed changes & not necessarily all increases, were for things like offshore foreign bank accounts, repealing credits for oil drilling & gas production, repealing limitations on itemized deductions for married couples making over $250k/year or individuals making $200k/year, requiring people who file tax returns electronically to print a return with a barcode on it instead of just a serial number, penalties for people who choose not to file taxes or extensions for consecutive years, and a lot of other things that range from being vast improvements to the current tax system to totally innocuous changes that the average person wouldn’t even be affected by. And yes, some increases, because let’s be honest - some people who should reasonably pay a lot of taxes don’t.

If someone was to comment on it, they would have to do a little reading & if anyone did the reading they would see that “442 proposed changes to the tax code” doesn’t translate to “tax hikes” and that very few of them have any affect on the average private citizen at all. I don’t agree with everything the President does, but there are real issues to take exception to and there are false flags & the only way to tell the difference is to read the source articles.

the more you know

I think people think I’m trying to be cute when I say I live in the hood. This is a garage turned into a finished apartment behind an abandoned house next to mine. Nobody has lived in either building as long as I’ve lived here (4 years). Today someone kicked in the door of the apartment & set it and the surrounding yard on fire.

By the time the fire was out it had crept into our garden. People from the neighborhood had ridden their bikes over to watch.

Other World Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Other World Kingdom (frequently abbreviated OWK) was a large, commercial BDSM and femdom facility, resort, and micronation, which opened in 1996 using the buildings and grounds of a 16th-century chateau located in ČernáŽďár nad Sázavou DistrictCzech Republic. Although not recognised by any other country, it maintained its own currency, passports, police force, courts, state flag and state hymn.

I talk about One Million Shirts, which was a very misguided effort to donate $1 and a t-shirt to Africa in an undifferentiated way.

I’m sure Denver Broncos Super Bowl champions t-shirts are probably on a container ship headed for some poor country right now. If I could urge anyone to do anything about this economy…

Sending gift in kind privileges the things you have laying around. It privileges your experiences, your convenience, much more than the intended recipients. This is why I don’t like or condone the model of Tom’s Shoes as well, because the problem is not lack of shoes in a poor community. The problem is lack of jobs, lack of stability, lack of the ability to plan, based on the poverty that might drive someone who ought to have shoes.

With respect to making these kind of donations - it just doesn’t reflect any choice or any agency on the part of the person who might be receiving it. And if it’s about you and about your brand being differentiated by the existence of poverty? Avoid that.

The textile industry in West Africa, to limit the example: 15 - 20 years ago there was a comparatively robust textile industry. Mali is a large producer of cotton, and yet the country has not manufactured a single t-shirt in years, in part because the flood of imports - the Denver Bronco t-shirts - tend to crowd out this existing economy. Which is an unfortunate turn of events, given that the thing that people might really want is the job that would allow them to make a shirt or to make shoes, rather than the t-shirt or the shoes themselves.

Dayo Olopade.

In her book, The Bright Continent: Breaking Rules and Making Change in Modern Africa, Olopaede calls for a shift in our thinking about Africa, and shows that the increasingly globalized challenges Africa faces should be addressed with the tools Africans are already using to solve problems themselves.

This this this this thiiiiiiiiiiis right here. 

(via pasalubong) The problem is not a lack of clothes. If you ever ask a homeless person what would help them get back on their feet, they’ll never say “some shirts” or “casual shoes” and sometimes it’s important to separate nice gestures from the concept of actual social change.
