Student Expertly Schools White Male Teacher On Racism – http://huff.to/1XgUpl7
We all win when students are treated as equals.
Besides the thought that dead and wounded people are a fair price for a 25$ dispute, (really) unfortunately we may now have the opportunity to see more folks shot as the country is brainwashed into thinking more guns equals more safety and so moves towards greater gun ownership along with concealed carry. And we still require NO PROOF a gun owner has the slightest idea how to shoot a bullseye much less a human.
Stupid is as Stupid does.
Gillian Anderson had to fight for equal pay for the new X-Files miniseries http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/22/10815552/gillian-anderson-x-files-miniseries-half-salary-david-duchovny
I titled this as I did cause the South was so intent on missing the boat. Their chivalrous, charming, and ultimately the cause of their death was the same attitude expressed here.
Come on folks, if you’re gonna be sexist at least try and couch out in respectable ways. Of course when you’re this blatantly full of shit, there ain’t a shovel big enough our hole wide enough to hide in.
As a friend used to say, “This rankles my ass”.
grabbed this off FB and had to pass on…
I always found out interesting how places I worked at were so concerned about my welfare and that of others they didn’t want me to divulge my pay.
What they really don’t want is workers knowing how arbitrary and unfair or edges are.
I didn’t give this a good look see soccer I’m about ready for bed. Thought I’d post anyways as we men still need all the help we can get. It’s one of my peeves and a driving force for how I try and live.
via What The Pope Really Said About Kim Davis | ThinkProgress.
I read a quick headline about the Pope saying Conscientious Objection (CO) was a Human Right. I totally agree with that. However I couldn’t find an article that had any substance regarding that aspect of CO. All I could find was articles about Kim Davis. This is not surprising. As a country, we are incredibly militaristic. Since news media supports this ( a heinous dereliction of duty to me) one finds very little info about anything contradicting that tradition. So, once again, we get an issue that will sustain the drama and divert our eyes from the prize. So, I’ll be doing a more thorough cruise through the web to see what I can find. Certainly the traditional media will NOT be the place to look.
As to Kim Davis. I go back and forth about her right to deny licenses to gay couples wanting to get married. That is an issue for me, as for many others. I have never thought gay folks should ever be denied any right granted to others. Basic Human Rights once again and also my own personal belief and experience. What I have to resolve is the seeming paradox of gay folks asking for a religious right from the same institution(s) which have been instrumental for hundreds, if not thousands of years, in persecuting and killing, and scapegoating a whole class of Humans for whatever nefarious purposes they come up with.
In time, I hope to write more, and even perhaps, do my thinking out loud here in case any one happens to be interested.
Again, thanks for following! Whether it’s one or many, it gives me incentive to keep it going.
this looks rather Catholic with the round globe in the center. Reminds me of the headpieces worn by ministers.
