I’m not going to follow you just because I reblogged something of yours, especially if the rest of your blog sucks.
Hey guys guess what. This is the internet. Fucking get over it.
Seriously about to just delete this thing because everyone is so retarded and it just makes me hate people more than I already do. But then there are those of you who give me hope that not everyone is hateful.
Because white guys are so underprivileged. Especially in Texas!
Petty, sexist, and racist much, Mother Jones? Let’s throw hypocritical in there, too, since you have no problem with other scholarships that are based on race and gender, but throw a hissy over one fucking scholarship — the first of its type — specifically designed for white men. My, how “progressive” of you. Unfollowed. — Ryking

Maria Isabel Vasquez Jimenez was 17 years old. She was engaged and pregnant. Now she’s dead, and the people responsible are about to walk away without a minute of jail time. Maria Isabel was a farmworker employed by Merced Farm Labor –– a company that was fined in 2006 for not having a written heat-stress prevention plan to protect its workers. They never did write that plan. On May 14th, 2010, Maria Isabel worked in a vineyard for nine hours straight. She was denied shade. She was denied water. She was denied rest. And when she finally collapsed in her fiance’s arms and was rushed to the hospital, her co-workers were instructed to lie to the doctors, to say that she had fainted while exercising. Maria Isabel died later that night. Her fever was 108 degrees. Now the San Joaquin District Attorney wants to let the people responsible for Maria Isabel’s death go with nothing more than community service. Click here to stand against this injustice. Merced Farm Labor is owned by Maria De Los Angeles Colunga, and its safety coordinator is Elias Armenta. Both Colunga and Armenta have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, but now San Joaquin District Attorney James Willett has offered them a plea deal where Colunga will most likely face 40 hours community service and a small fine and Armenta 400 hours. “Everyone needs to move along with their lives. My clients are very, very nice people and very remorseful,” said Merced’s attorney. But Colunga and Armenta didn’t display remorse for Maria Isabel’s death. In fact, the California Department of Labor had to shut the company down in July of 2010, because they still refused to provide their workers with the shade and water breaks required by California law, even after those same practices killed Maria Isabel. Maria Isabel’s family wants justice for her death, and they are working with the United Farmworkers Union to try to get it. We can help, but the sentencing hearing for Colunga and Armenta is scheduled for March 9th – and time is running out.
This happened HERE, in America. A young pregnant woman died because she was denied water, shade or rest while working outdoors. Just despicable.
Last night I ran across Mercedes-Benz’s newest cool-yet-so-cringe-worthy ad campaign. While the artwork itself is pretty damn awesome, the idea that our personalities and skills are a product of the prevalence of one hemisphere of our brain over another is rubbish. Another…
Conservatives are fond of willfully ignorant statements like: Our tax dollars shouldn’t go to abortion, so Planned Parenthood should have its funding stripped. We all know this is a lie. The information to debunk this claim is widely and…
“You’re looking at legislation that is going to make sure that when you are talking about sexuality with students that it is age appropriate,” said Matthew Parsons, a father of seven children and founder of the group “Something…
It’s in Wichita, Kansas. What’s in the water in that place?
“Among the points that the student author makes: “[Same-sex relationships] relationships just are not normal. One thing to notice is that there is legislation against homosexual marriage. However, there are no legislative restrictions to same-sex dating. Dating does often lead to marriage, so same-sex dating should be frowned upon.”
“And while that’s offensive, it barely compares to this nugget: “Same-sex dating in high school is not accepted by many, despite the efforts of a few. It is a social disruption in many cases, and should be kept out of school to ensure our educational mission with as little of a distraction as possible.”“
UM WAT. Is there not some ADULT overseeing things here? How did this get published???
