"when women wear makeup they’re basically lying to us" well i don’t see why i’m being blamed for a man stupid enough to really think i have red and gold eyelids
Ummmm. Yes he has a hot body but please let this not be serious
Government is good.
Big Brother is watching you.
The State wants to take care of you.
north Korea scares me to death. the fact that a place like that still exists in modern day. those people are prisoners.
1984 is here and now
this is too 1984 to be real
why the fuck have i barely heard anything about this shit? Why aren’t more people outraged about this? and talking about this? this is fucking horrible! Something has to be done it’s fucking 2014 why the fuck is this even happening
i have family in North Korea that no one has seen since the war.
Why isn’t anyone telling us about this?
I’m a sophomore in high school. Who gives a shit about The Second Great Awakening? What about this? What about the Korean Reich that’s strangling it’s own people? Why hasn’t anyone at least pretended to care? Fuck Beyoncé, fuck whatever is coming soon to theaters. Why isn’t the suffering of human beings the first headline in the NY Times? Why hasn’t my history teacher taken a moment out of the 53 minutes in our class to inform us? Why?
There’s no oil there to steal, so the richer countries of the world couldn’t care less.
no one is talking about this because no one is supposed to know this information
> except for us talking about this every time they do something stupid
> except for all the US soldiers hanging out next to the dmz
"I’m ignorant so it must be a conspiracy"
No oil to steal??? Has anyone been paying attention? How much oil have we stolen from Iraq? We drill more oil within the US every month them Iraq has almost.
And yes this has been out there and a thing since the Korean War. Part of why we have 2 USMC bases in Japan, and huge amounts of US Army troops along the boarder. As well as the worlds largest mine field seperating the north and south.
The only reason nobody is interfering with N.Korea’s control of its people is because that havnt tried expanding….yet. I imagine if Germany kept to its own borders and killed off all the people the nazi’s abhorred then Europe would have approached them differently

What the fuck is the cop doing with his gun against the kids head in the first place

Military Equipment Used by Police in Ferguson Also Found at Arizona Police Departments
There’s a lot of discussion taking place about the militarization of police amid protests in Ferguson, Missouri, over the local police department’s controversial shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Peaceful protests have been met with police tear-gassing, aiming rifles at protesters, and arrests, according to reports. It’s gotten to the point that even U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says he’s “deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles [by police] sends a conflicting message” in the community.
The militarization of police has been an issue the American Civil Liberties Union has reported on well before this incident, and just a few months ago, the organization reported on “massive military-grade weapons caches” at police departments in Arizona.
"The irony [in Holder’s statement] is that the federal government over the past two decades has been supplying these police departments with military-grade equipment," ACLU of Arizona executive director Alessandra Soler tells New Times.
USA Today has reported that Ferguson’s police force got all this military gear through the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, which is the same program that has allowed Arizona police agencies to acquire 37,467 pieces of military equipment from the federal government.
The ACLU just released a report in June in which it tried to track these pieces of military equipment in a handful of states, including Arizona.
Through records requests, the ACLU found that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has acquired a .50-caliber machine gun, 120 assault rifles, five armored vehicles, and 10 helicopters, mostly through the 1033 program.
The ACLU also found the following at police departments and sheriff’s offices around the state:
- 32 bomb suits
- 704 units of night vision equipment, e.g., night-vision goggles
- 1034 guns, of which 712 are rifles
- 42 forced entry tools, such as battering rams
- 830 units of surveillance and reconnaissance equipment
- 13,409 personal protective equipment (PPE) and/or uniforms
- 120 utility trucks
- 64 armored vehicles
- 4 GPS devices
- 17 helicopters
- 21,211 other types of military equipment
The ACLU’s report seems especially relevant now, with the national news media focusing on what’s going on in Ferguson.
This morning, the Reverend Jarrett Maupin II of Phoenix told us he wouldn’t be surprised to see something similar happen locally, as he noted the outcry against police after Officer Richard Chrisman’s shooting of Daniel Rodriguez in 2010.
"People should know Ferguson is literally on fire, but there are many cities — including our own — that are figuratively on fire and waiting for the next Michael Brown to be killed for things to boil over and for violence to erupt," Maupin said.
The ACLU’s report, “War Comes Home,” includes much more information about police militarization than what’s mentioned above.
I just want to point out Holdens hypocrisy, he is “disturbed,” by the militarization of police? Who do you think is responsible? The military gear didnt just fall off the back of a truck, it was issued to the police via the Government. Via the Obama administration. The police have become more violent, racially motivated, corupt, and well armed under your messiah then ever before… even more so then under the “gun loving, oppresive, white republican,” presidents you hate so much…
