Sometimes there are things, actions even issues that when seen must be called out. Whether it be war, poverty, racism, homophobia, misogyny or just plain old hate. It warms my heart to see people that have plenty to lose willing to put their neck on the block to do what is right for their fellow human.
I know I am preaching to the choir here.
It just makes me feel good to see and hear brave souls that have all to lose and nothing to gain do what is obviously the correct thing.
“I think it’s just important that everyone is able to see what’s there,” he said. “Yeah, it’ll probably hurt. These things always do. But the only way we’re ever going to fix it is if we acknowledge that.”

I really do enjoy when someone is chosen as the target by someone that has one on their back. I laugh and I laugh and I laugh.
I could say many things but it really is to amusing to actually share and I just don’t do that shit.
I do do this

It was a great thought then I forgot what it was.
But anyway I have this
When Lisa Norris was a kid in Cookeville, Tennessee, her father worked at Acme Boots, and that plant and her childhood were intertwined. One of her earliest memories is of wandering around the factory among bins of leather, breathing in the smell of the well-oiled wood floors. Then the boot plant went to Mexico and her dad landed at Wrangler, which makes jeans, and then Red Kap, which makes workwear, and rarely ever again did he stay at a job for more than eighteen months. Each time, the plant would downsize or shutter, the jobs would cross the border, and he’d have to start all over again.
During the current recovery, productivity growth hasn’t even resulted in increased hiring; rather, it has occurred in concert with massive layoffs and record long-term unemployment. “U.S. employers cut jobs pitilessly” during the recession, noted a typical story from the Associated Press. “Yet after shrinking payrolls, many companies found they could produce just as much with fewer workers.” The result has been a recovery marked by increased productivity and record corporate profits, but with catastrophically low employment growth. Yet economists and pundits continue to chew over our “jobless recovery” as if it were an anomaly.
For something so vital to the future of the US economy, there’s disturbingly little data collected about plant closings and offshoring, let alone analysis of what goes into these decisions. Corporate annual reports and SEC filings are silent about the logic behind closings. Philips’s 2010 SEC filings, for example, reveal nothing about why the firm offshored the Sparta plant, or the many other North American plants it has shuttered, beyond a brief reference to “initiatives to structurally reduce our overall cost structure” and “transferring technologies to low-cost countries.” WARN notices, required by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act from firms before they make mass layoffs, only contain numbers of jobs lost, not the thinking behind them, and are arduous to examine because they’re filed state by state. Until the 2013 sequester, the Bureau of Labor Statistics compiled them but only published aggregate data that lumped offshoring in with temporary layoffs. As the SEC does not require firms to break down their employee numbers by nation, multinationals, like Philips, increasingly provide only global or regional numbers in their public filings. American multinationals are required to report their total employees here and abroad to the Commerce Department each year, but the aggregate data made publicly available provides only a rough hint as to the scale of offshoring-and, again, nothing whatsoever about the thinking behind it. A 2010 NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that more Americans-86 percent-blamed offshoring for the struggling economy than any other cause. And yet the Department of Labor tracks offshoring numbers only to the extent that laid-off workers petition for “trade-affected” status, which entitles them to training grants. Since few nonunion workers know to do this, the DOL numbers are definitely an undercount. Yet in 2010, the most recent data available, such petitions represented 287,000 offshored jobs, the equivalent of a thousand factories like the one in Sparta.

They really pale compared to the other issues I have in my my life.
I’ve seen it before. Someone that you think cares, someone that you think is on your side waits for you to turn your back. I refuse to mention names because there is a silent plane flying above my head.

I skipped a few days in tending to the colt. I was assured that he was being cared for yet today I go to check on him and his entire personality has changed. Last I saw him I could crawl under his belly, walk behind him even lay across his back. I could wash his wounds and receive a thankful gesture. There is this other guy that was going to continue and I went with him tonight just to judge the progress. As soon as we drove up the horse started raising hell. I stood back and watched, the horse hates him. He is to rough he does not let the horse have his space and is very controlling which never works on an 800 pound horse. I had him “greenbroke” and this dude made it where I must start from scratch.
I hate dumbfucks
Don’t get me wrong I like the dude but he has no clue. People talk and say they know about things that are beyond their comprehension to impress others.

Reference for those not in the know.
Some friends and I have referred to Keith Richards as “The dead man”, you can see it in his eyes, the dude has been dead for years yet still he stands. I hope he donates his body to science. I also hope I am still around when they do the autopsy and explain to the rest of us how he made this far.
“I’m old, you know,” he eventually admits. “In two years I’m 70, which is ridiculous. How did that happen to me?”
“I was sleeping on [Jimi Hendrix’s roadie] Neville Chester’s floor – he was sharing a flat with Noel Redding, so whenever they needed an extra pair of hands I was right there. I didn’t get the job for any talent or anything. But I did see Jimi play a lot. Twice a night for about three months. I’d seen him play backstage too. He had this old Epiphone guitar – it was a 12-string, strung as a six string – and he used to stand up on a chair backstage and play it. Why he stood up on the chair, I don’t know.

It’s no secret that an opposition to sustainable living exists. Earlier this year, Texas state brought several SWAT teams to a sustainable community and threatened to shut it down. Each one of the community members were initially handcuffed at gunpoint. It was called “The Garden of Eden Community,” and was totally self sustainable. You can read more about that here.
This time, it’s Robin Speronis that’s come under fire. She lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal. Officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code, which mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source. That’s just like saying our dependency on corporations isn’t even a choice. The battle to live without most utilities has been ongoing for Robin, the self-sufficient woman has lived for more than a year and a half using solar energy, a propane camping stove and rain water.
Trucker Brian Miner was driving through Illinois this week when he says he saw an officer of the law pass him traveling well over the posted speed limit.
He says that the officer was on his cellphone as well.
Mr. Miner, like most of us does not like the above the law, double-standard of police, so he took action by honking his horn to pull the officer over.
The UK is facing a major sperm shortage that may be tempting fertility clinics to accept poorer quality sperm, the British Fertility Society (BFS) warns.
Some clinics rely on imported sperm to keep up with demand.
However, the BFS chairman, Dr Allan Pacey, said he was “worried” that some clinics may be setting a lower bar to “get donors through the door”.

In August 1967, Lyndon Johnson announced that he was sending 45,000 more troops to Vietnam. Black power advocate Stokely Carmichael called for violent revolution in the streets. Beatles manager Brian Epstein died from an overdose of sleeping pills. But around water coolers, the hot topic was what Billie Joe McAllister and his girlfriend threw off the Tallahatchie Bridge.
The mystery created by Bobbie Gentry in her debut single “Ode To Billie Joe” cast a spell over the entire country.
I found this in my inbox today and I do actually realize that it is not current but found it fascinating so I thought I would share.
“Everybody has a different guess about what was thrown off the bridge-flowers, a ring, even a baby. Anyone who hears the song can think what they want, but the real message of the song, if there must be a message, revolves around the nonchalant way the family talks about the suicide. They sit there eating their peas and apple pie and talking, without even realizing that Billie Joe’s girlfriend is sitting at the table, a member of the family.”
