some people spout their words without bothering to check the facts.
just because its easy to claim this critical issue is the whining of ‘bored, trust-fund kids with meaningless lives’, its not. do the math — do you know what 99% means?

Psych research on why certain people (local foodies) buy local/green or not — found some surprising results
Attitudes of nutrition, health, energy conservation, and farmers receiving adequate prices have no significant effect on the probability of buying local. While they might be cited as reasons to buy, these attitudes don’t appear to affect actual behavior.
Instead, people are more likely to buy local food if their behavior relates to food knowledge (start gardening people!) and food venues (shopping at a health food store)

Miliary Planning: how do we stop China from helping Africa? (funny)

How will we get the public to support large scale military operations in Africa?….

How about Joseph Kony from Uganda? he’s not as bad as General Butt Naked of Liberia, but his name just rolls off the tounge. he’ll be very easy to market….

This is going to be so good, not only will the people be BEGGING us to intervene in Africa, hipsters will actually grab rifles and go to Uganda themselves…

Yeah it’s pretty good but I don’t know about the hipsters grabbing ribles and going to Africa themselves, I don’t think it’s THAT good…

Africa here we come.

(bytheway, I am completly for the stop LRA movement, however I disapprove of the way it has become an ad campaign that focuses more on an organization and giving someone evil a celebrity status rather than giving victims the capability and resources to overcome this themselves. As others point out, more children are still dying from lack of bednetting to prevent malaria than being kidnapped by the LRA. THAT is something that we can give real help towards)

If you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, German, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden Denmark and Australia, you’ll get a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year. They had 112. You think it’s because Americans are more homicidal by nature or do you think it’s because those guys have gun control laws? - Toby Ziegler

gay rights in the miitary. Yes it will disrupt the unit. But so did African-American integration. They got over that.

The streets of heaven are too crouded with angels

We did not seek, nor did we provoke, an assault on our freedom and our way of life…yet the true measure of the people’s strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive

When after having heard the explosion from their practice facility, they ran into the fire to help get people out. Ran into the fire.

Stories We’re Told

We’re told Abe Lincoln single-handedly abolished slavery. We’re told that Martin Luther King Jr. passed the civil rights movement. That George Washington founded America. But the truth is that they had help. We can’t wait for the next big person to come along. Take opportunities. Take chances. Welcome help. Step up.
