The original FUCK Elvis!

You heard it right. Elvis stole the song from her and got all the credit.

White artists stealing black art and  sterilizing it for white audiences is nothing new. 

Elvis was pure trash

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

Get Heather the Lyme Treatment She Needs by Heather Neuner - GoFundMe

It’s been six months and I’m not even halfway to my fundraising goal. I’m incredibly grateful for the donations I’ve received so far and it might get me through a few weeks but I need closer to $10K for my entire treatment plan. Please help me get the IV drugs, testing, and medication I need! If left untreated, Babesia is crippling and often fatal!

i reblogged this a couple of days ago and for some reason literally all my followers ignored it.

i know everyone hates being guilt tripped into reblogging something, but this isn’t some vague goalless campaign to raise awareness, it’s about a real person who needs treatment for a life-threatening illness.

so many people on my dash like to go on and on about how useless 99% of the disability/chronic illness “activism” on this site is (and i agree), but here’s something concrete and legitimately helpful you could do! i would likely be dead by now if i hadn’t been lucky enough to get my own condition diagnosed and treated in time. that’s how serious this kind of stuff is.

could you all please at least signal boost this?

God bless you all! I’ve posted this dozens of times and have been lucky to get a few persistent reblogs from the same three people but this has seriously restored my faith in humanity (or at least Tumblr). Tick and mosquito-borne illness is no joke but the gov’t seems to think it is so not a penny of my treatment is covered by my insurance. After five years I finally have the attention of Social Security Disability. I have an assessment next month but my hopes aren’t high and I still have bills to pay. Like she said^^ Every penny and reblog goes to help a real disabled person that could die without treatment. The kindness of friends and family over the past few years has been nothing short of a miracle but my inner circle can only give so much. Lyme alone is a nasty illness that can, and has already, infect the brain causing everything from mild light sensitivity and migraines to full blown tremors, gastroparesis (paralysis of the digestive tract), muscle weakness, chronic fatigue and even memory loss and seizures(I’m at the point where I can’t even stand in the shower for fear of seizing) Babesia on the other hand is almost identical to Malaria and literally destroys my red blood cells causing dangerous anemia that no amount of supplemental iron can fix. Please help me reach my goal so I can get the treatment I need! It’s been six months, I don’t think i’ll last six more!

signal boost!

Want to go to Planned Parenthood in D.C.? You’ll have to run the anti-choice gauntlet first.
This is what it looks like when clinics don’t have buffer zones.

They’re sidewalk harassers, sidewalk bullies, whatever else, but they are no where near counselors. Counselors are non-judgmental, non-biased, empathetic listeners, that is NOT what those people are. - Paige

If the clinic employees begin exercising their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and carried AR-15’s or AK-47’s along with them, on public streets, that would present an interesting conundrum to the gun loving right wing, would it not? I bet it would stop all the harassment cold too.

There are some abortion providers that do carry guns at all times, wear bulletproof vests to work, hire bodyguards, wear masks into the clinic so protesters can’t identify them, go in the back door, change up their driving routes every day, check under their cars daily for bombs, etc. That’s how serious this is, and that’s why it’s dangerous to take the protesters at face value, even if they seem peaceful. You don’t know who they’re hiding in the crowd.

And doctors who work at abortion clinics have been murdered by pro-life activists, in what has to be one of the biggest ironies in existence. Clinics have also been bombed.

Doctors like Dr. Tiller that saved my sister’s life. Dr. Tiller was shot and killed in his own church, in front of his own family and community.

These people are disgusting.
If they care so much about life, they can spend their energy helping impoverished children.
Hypocrits.

tractionism:

Over the last week or so in Australia a boy with dark skin was threatened with beheading, a woman had her head smashed against a wall and was thrown off a train, mosques and cars have been vandalised, people are being abused in the street and social media is littered with hate speech and vile comments. Kind of interesting considering most of these people justify their attacks by linking Islam to terrorism and proclaiming it’s a hateful religion from violent countries.
