Freep this Faux News poll. (Via Activate the Machine.)
I think we all know what to do.
Tumblr-ers, do your thing! =D
Also, please reblog to help spread the word and poll-bomb the crap out of this. Can’t wait till Fox reports on this! haha =D
P.s. Love the “clean coal” advertisement at the top of the page. As if..
Columbia University professor of economics Jeffrey Sachs stops by OWS for an explanatory chat
Okay, this is just amazing. This is a free and very clear Columbia University class right here, in socio and macro economics which, in addition, elucidates the Big Wall Street problem - the problem with the entire society - NAMING NAMES. What had passed for a Democracy has been entirely replaced. Here is how, and what WE ALL NEED to do about it. I mean: wow.
Beyond the laundry list of things which may come from what he’s saying about all of it, I hope and expect that many military families are among those who will praise Sachs for speaking out about how the corrupt government-by-corporate-money has led us through lies into groundless war, causing the deaths and maiming of thousands, for nothing. VERY HIGHLY-CHARGED WORDS, to be sure, but in this light, absolutely appropriate. Because it’s the Truth.
Awesome, awesome interview! Listen to this!
“No campaign contributions more than $100! [per person~]” - Definitely an awesome idea and one which the OWS movement should rally behind.

Tevatron shuttered after 27 years due to lack of funding
Formerly the world’s most powerful particle accelerator (before CERN, of course), the Tevatron at Fermilab in Chicago was responsible for discovering the top quark, among other contributions to particle physics. According to scientists at Tevatron, the group was closing in on the elusive Higgs boson, an undiscovered particle tying the Standard Model of particle physics together. Friday marked the last time the particle beams would be turned on at the facility, due to a decision by the federal government to cease funding the lab. The annual budget of the Tevatron? $35 million.
Just for reference, $35 million would fund the Afghanistan war for 144 minutes.
This is awful
144 minutes of oppression and occupation or a years worth of cutting edge research for the betterment of our species.? Priority.
Many at the top are there because they ARE smart, talented, and hard working. But the only reason they’re smart and talented in the first place is because of thousands of years of collective human progress. Generations of blacksmiths, farmers, machinists, factory workers, engineers, and scientists have allowed us to live like we do, NOT the elite media or oil tycoons that inherit land and capital.
Fox News takes on Sim City’s environmentally friendly building: the green police, education or a liberal agenda?
Yes, let’s let kids be kids.. I mean, obviously it’s wrong to let a kid find out that an animal has to be slaughtered to get your average hamburger, or that renewable energy sources are a much more environmentally safe than say, fossil fuels; it’s all just a part of the liberal agenda.
My favorite part was when he freaked out about the word slaughter, as if the origin of meat is some dark secret we must keep from the children until their minds are developed enough to accept it.
I wonder how many people would still eat meat if you had to ‘slaughter’ the animals YOU ate… Or you had like ‘punch cards’: you want 20 hamburgers this month?, you get to slaughter a cow to charge your card back up.
Note* I am not a vegetarian. I have a cheeseburger once a month, eat chicken probably 2 times a week, eat fish a few times a year. It’s more about quantity and moderation imo.
Bumper sticker attached to a trash can:
“Work harder. Democrats want to spend your money!”
While this does capture a certain mood in this great country, it is perhaps a bit one-sided. The spending urge is among our most bipartisan instincts. If anything, over the last 30 years Democrats have…
If you can’t grasp the meaning and power behind this, I’m really, truly feel sorry for you.
“I finally said, you know what, I’m going to tell my story. The first American injured in the Iraq war is a gay Marine. He wanted to give his life to this country.”
—Eric Alva, former Marine and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
This deserves way more notes than it is getting. This guy lost a leg serving a country where people would just as soon condemn him for his sexual orientation as shake his hand and thank him.
I wouldn’t shake his hand. I’d hug him. I wouldn’t thank him, because “thank you” just isn’t a big enough word of gratitude for what he’s sacrificed and been through.
Is like masturbation.
I can’t stop doing it even though I feel exhausted and disgusting after doing it.
Also, once you get over the society-imposed shame, it can be a lot of fun.
LOL, family reunion coming up. Both anticipating and dreading the political discussions with my uncles and cousins.
