I already had this happen. Sorta. My uncle decided to engage me in a “debate” (basically him saying he’s right cause he went to school for mechanics and was in the military). He used the 22 attacked in china though. I don’t think he actually read it, because as I pointed out only 7 went to the hospital. And none if those seven had any serious wounds.

Important: nobody died. I already see right-wingers using this as a “See? See? Psychos will kill no matter what!” But nobody is dead. In that same amount of time, how many people could this guy have murdered with an assault weapon? For comparison: Adam Lanza finished murdering 20 children in under 5 minutes.
Nobody is saying that gun control will prevent all gun crimes, or that gun control will stop all murders/attempted murders. But it will reduce the body count. Shouldn’t that be enough for us to take action?

Oh my god
I wonder why you’re single too, dudebro
Holy shit. I think I know this person…like. In real life. If I actually do…he’s worse in real life.
(The Raw Story) - Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on Thursday insisted that it was her “duty as a believer in Christ” repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law before “it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens.”
In a speech on the House floor,…
Am I the only one who pictured a bill called Obamacare running around literally killing women and children?

If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
There are people who don’t know this? I’ve known this for at least 15 years.
This man was driving me across Tehran yesterday, when I learned that he’d lived for 8 years in America— incidentally on the same STREET as me in Georgia.
He first crossed into the United States from Mexico— paying $1,500 to be transported across the border. He wanted to go to University and be a dentist, but learned that the idea of America was much more bountiful than the reality. He worked at a factory job for 8 years, without ever being able to get a drivers license. He wasn’t able to find a foothold in society. After 9/11, he said things got much tougher for Middle Eastern immigrants. “I had a great passion for the American people,” he said. “When 9/11 happened, I had no money, so instead I gave my blood.”
Five years ago he spent a night in jail for driving without a license. He decided he was tired of being nervous all the time, and he went all out for a green card. When he was turned down, he returned to Iran.
His fee for a 45 minute taxi ride across Tehran was only $6. I paid him the rate he’d have received in America, and asked for his photograph. He was the kind of man I most admire. The kind that realizes you get one shot at life, and risks everything to make the best of it. I was sorry it didn’t work out for him.
“It was my destiny,” he said. He didn’t sound like he believed his own words though.
“Are you married?” I asked.
“Yes. I met my wife when I returned to Iran.”
“Well there you go,” I said.
As I prepared to take his photograph, he made one request: “Don’t photograph me with the taxi,” he said, “it’s a low class job.”
“It’s not a low class job,” I said. “It’s the job of people who take huge risks so their children can be lawyers and surgeons.”
Powerful accounts from my friend at Humans of New York, currently photographing the Humans of Tehran.
And this is the first thing I see.
“People kill people. Cold, cowardly, unfeeling, evil people kill innocent people. My condolences go out to the families who have lost a loved one. There will be some who wish to containerize this act by banning the weapon as being evil. There are plenty of provisions to restrict ownership in CT. This society craves video games, that horrible waste of time for bringing some kind of sick joy, by…
Two lines thinking about the families…the others saying how guns solve everything, and video games are the devil’s toys.
The term “McJob” has come to epitomize all that’s wrong with the low-wage service industry jobs that are growing part of the U.S economy. “It beats flipping burgers,” the cliché goes, because no matter what your job might be, it’s assumed to be better than working in a fast-food restaurant.
Today in New York City, though, hundreds of workers at dozens of fast-food chain stores are walking out on strike, demanding better of those jobs. At McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, KFC, Taco Bell, and Domino’s Pizza locations, workers have been organizing, and today they launch their campaign. They want a raise, to $15-an-hour from their current near-minimum wage pay, and recognition for their independent union, the Fast Food Workers Committee.
Saavedra Jantuah, who works at a Burger King on 34th St. in Manhattan, explained that the $7.30 she makes per hour after two years on the job doesn’t pay her enough to support her son. “I’m doing it for him, I’m going on strike so I can bring my family together underneath one household,” she said. “A union can help us get to where we can make it in New York.”
Cannot even express how thrilled I am about this story. I’ll be on the picket lines with the workers in a couple of hours, with photos and more stories. Service jobs don’t have to be lousy jobs—respect and a decent wage would do a lot.
Food workers need this SO desperately.
This is so needed. I worked in fast food for 5 years, nights, and as a manager for 4 of them and made $12 an hour (in Alberta, Canada). The way customers treated me, and the work I put in was not worth the $12/hour.
