This. Literally the first thing you learn when you begin to handle a gun is to only point the gun at something you are willing to shoot.
tbh the number of people killed by police in the US seems so fuckin unreal and horrifying to me because here in Germany a total of 11 people have been killed by police officers since 1967
1967 - 1 shot
1999 - 1 shot
2005 - 1 died in a fire in the holding cell he was in
2008 - 1 shot
2010 - 2 shot
2011 - 2 shot
2012 - 3 shot
LITERALLY YOU GUYS
The government wouldn’t spend a dime on education, healthy food, drinkable water, assisting people in poverty, de-polluting the streets, or anything else of importance. But they would be on call to spend millions on equipping a small police force to fight off a group of defenseless protestors. You can argue with me that this is not a hate crime, when it so obviously is, but you can’t argue with me when I say that this government is too corrupt to even serve it’s purpose.
This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill.Capitalism is inhumane.
The United States has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world — higher than China, Iran, and Russia(!). That wasn’t always the case, But when we began sending people to jail for nonviolent drug offenses, the prison population skyrocketed.

Seriously guys, please spread the word about this petition.
SIGN THIS because:
• cops think that Mike Brown’s life was worth less than the $3 candy bar he supposedly stole
• one white person can cry about a cop killing their dog and get a law passed requiring officers to undergo additional training to handle dogs
• but every 28 hours a black person is killed by police
• and yet at least one million dissenting voices will be required to be heard by the US government
Interesting and amusing watch!
talking about class warfare!
he Republican-controlled House of Representatives on Wednesday evening voted to sue President Obama over Obamacare.
This is historic.
In a 225-201 vote along party lines, our leaders in Washington decided that House lawyers will draft legal documents to launch a lawsuit against the president for allegedly exceeding his constitutional powers.
this is pettiest country
Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
THIS IS GETTING NO COVERAGE, FUCKING REBLOG THIS SHIT. THIS IS SOME VILLAIN SHIT.
"My sight is failing," she said finally. "Even when I was young I could not have read what was written there. But it appears to me that that wall looks different. Are the Seven Commandments the same as they used to be, Benjamin?"
For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran:
ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.”
