socalledunitedstates: Don’t do this General strikes are a big deal. They need organization, mass support, an agreed-upon list of demands, related demonstrations, etc. It’s not as easy as 10k people across the country at multiple different jobs not showing up - despite what you think, that will be seen as 10k independent occurrences and will result in several thousand firings for no call/no shows with no other notice paid. Even if this wildcat general strike gets enough traction to be seen as an actual threat (which is unlikely as just a viral tumblr post), the government will simply respond with arrests and brutality as they have in the past, and no part of this post prepares people for that Instead, participate in the Earth Strike on January 15th to demand corporate and government action against climate change And don’t just decide to do it on your own - talk to your coworkers, get in touch with local unions and your IWW branch, talk to local chapters of climate activism groups like Rising Tide, 350.org, and Transition Towns to organize concurrent demonstrations and actions, and spread the word as much as you can so we can get some steam behind this in the 2 months we have to prepare “Fuck Work Day” would probably just make things worse while scaring people off from participating in the real coordinated action less than a month later Please signal boost this post! : wereralph y'all out here reblogging this like it's a joke but come December if we all banded together and didn't go to work, aint none of these big companies gonna be able to make quota and what the fuck can they do, fire like 10,000 people nation- wide and hope they can train enough people in on day to tip the scale back? fuck no, they're gonna have to eat that loss, and even if its only one day, that's gonna set millions of amazon orders back. its gonna fuck walmart's whole thing sam walton can suck a cock. these companies aint got no yall still think its a joke. and honestly if y'all want a fucking pay raise that bad put up or go home and show they asses that they aint nothing but a name without bottom-level workers like us for like 3 days and something is gonna have to give december 20th 2018 is gonna be national fuck work day socalledunitedstates: Don’t do this General strikes are a big deal.

Please take a moment to read the article about what this man is doing, the criminals he is exposing, and the deaths of so many poor and middle class families at the hands of the greedy. Yellow lights with Xerox cameras were shortened from 5 seconds to 3 seconds in poor and middle class neighborhoods to surprise drivers and generate more revenue. Many deaths ensued. This story is already a couple months old, but there isn’t enough talk about it. Please signal boost this. http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/04/26/new-york-man-arrested-for-cutting-wires-to-red-light-cameras-after-exposing-government-revenue-generating-scheme/ even traffic lights are racist 😧😧😧😧 The gag is it was a Black man who invented the traffic light and now white supremacy is using it to kill us what in the fuck. Also notice this man looks DELIGHTED in his mugshot, probably because he knows it will help shine a light on the subject. This guy’s an actual American hero, using his white privilege for good.  Please read his story and I know y’all don’t click links so: A New York man known as the Red Light Robin Hood was arrested again this  month after cutting wires to red light cameras where yellow light duration  times were shortened by the city in order to generate more citations and  revenue. The shortened durations at the traffic lights generate $32 million for Suffolk  County, which is why the county allows the practice to continue despite their  own study showing they lead to an increase in accidents with injuries. PINAC’s Theresa Richard reported about Stephen Ruth back in February  after seeing videos he posted on Facebook that prove the lights near the  cameras trick drivers into citations. At that point, Ruth had already been arrested in August for using a painter’s  extension rod to point the cameras towards the sky. On April 11, he went a little further and cut wires to 18 cameras. “I cut the cable wires, making it useless. I’ve made it  dysfunctional, just like the whole red-light camera  program,” said Ruth during a local interview. “I did it in  order to save lives.” And after he cut the wires, he called the news to cover his act of civil  disobedience, which resulted in his arrest after police received pressure from  politicians. Ruth said police and sheriff deputies support him, because  they’re aware of the shortened yellow lights. Some may even testify on his behalf if his case goes to trial. When he was in  jail for his most recent arrest, a sheriff’s deputy even offered to bail him out. But after receiving attention from local residents and media, Ruth discovered  a government entity mounted a camera outside of his home on a telephone  pole just like the one LaVoy Finicum took down during the standoff with the  government at a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. But Ruth doesn’t know exactly where it came from. “The only reason the government is so concerned about me is because I  proved that they shortened the yellow lights to generate revenue and killed a  lot of innocent people,” said Stephen Ruth just before he painted over the  camera with a painter’s extension pole. Ruth currently faces 22 years in prison for tampering of public property and  obstructing government administration, but relies on his faith and stated he’s  on a mission from God to save lives. Ruth said that a car tried to hit him head-on and narrowly missed his vehicle.  Upon talking to neighbors, they described a similar vehicle with similar  occupants staking out his house and lurking around his neighborhood. He said someone could be trying to kill him, although he said he could be  wrong. “The only way they can keep this from gaining national attention is to get rid of me,” he said. If you think Ruth may be paranoid, consider the case of John Lang, a traffic- light scam whistleblower in Fresno, California who posted on Facebook that  police were trying to kill him just days before he was found stabbed to death  in his burned down house. Police ruled his death a suicide. If Suffolk County’s contract with Xerox is any indication of what other cities’  contracts with Xerox look like, the problem extends much farther than Suffolk  County. So Ruth’s “paranoia” might not be paranoia at all. In Suffolk County, yellow lights at 50 intersections with cameras were shortened  in 2011 after state legislators approved the cameras to be installed in 2010. In  2012, 50 more cameras were installed at intersections, which increased revenue  by $17 million. The video below, shot by Ruth, shows the duration of a yellow light at an  intersection with no cameras to be five seconds compared to the duration of a  yellow light at an intersection with a camera to be three seconds. That two-second reduction has netted millions of extra dollars for the county  and Xerox, the publicly-owned company that contracts the cameras. Ruth pointed out some cameras that were put up have been taken down after  they fell short of daily contract-quota with Xerox to produce 25 citations, per  camera, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., which costs Suffolk County $2,132 per  day, according to the Xerox contract with the county. Xerox collects $13 from Suffolk County for each ticket, which increases to $33  per ticket when a camera generates more than 90 tickets in a month. Ruth pointed out that the vast majority of cameras were placed in lower to  middle class neighborhoods. “I’m on 25A and Setauket and you can see that there’s no  cameras to be found. Lower class neighborhoods are  loaded with cameras. But if you drive through Setauket,  you won’t see any cameras. Why are they all over the lower  and middle class neighborhoods? That’s what we want to  know,” he stated in a video seen below. Another vexing problem for Ruth is the coverage the issue has gotten from local  news, specifically News12, which is owned by CableVision who provides the  internet service to the cameras at the lights. When victims of the lights went to News12 about the deaths of their family  members due to the shortened lights, News12 interviewed them, but never ran  the story. And while other local media outlets report from Ruth’s point of view  and most of the public’s, News12 has painted Ruth a criminal. When the news failed to investigate some of the deaths at intersections with  shortened lights, Ruth took his own camera to document the light-duration  times at the scene of the deaths. When he arrived, he recorded a light-duration  of three seconds at an intersection where it was previously five seconds. “I saw the crosses and thought I was in the right place.” However, when he determined he was actually at the wrong location, he went to  the correct location the following day and found the same thing, again – a light  shortened from five seconds to three where a person was killed. Ruth’s energy and persistence on social media and news media have gained the  yellow light issue local support and he’s spoken on behalf of victim’s families to  representatives urging them to discontinue the program. His supporters consist  of a variety of groups from judges to cops to just about everyone in Suffolk  County. Meanwhile, Ruth’s support seems to be growing everywhere but the U.S., where  it has remained mostly specific to Suffolk County.  He posted a screen shot on  his Facebook page of folks from England calling him a “hero” and saying they  “idolize” him. “I’m even getting messages from Australia,” Ruth told  PINAC. When asked if he was afraid of the possibility of jail  he said, “I’m willing to go to jail for doing what’s right.” Ruth said one of his hero’s is MLK, who he shares a birthday with on January 15. “You gotta love a guy like that. He was willing to go to jail to do what’s right.” “I’m just trying to save lives. I spend Christmases delivering flowers to the  cemetery, because nobody wants to work on Christmas. I get orders from all  around the world from people ordering flowers to put on graves. I take my son  and tell him to note the ages of the people who died fighting for our country.  And they come back to this?” So we asked what he’d like to see come from risking his own life and freedom to  save the lives of others and expose the traffic light scandal. “I want people to go to jail.” Ironically, at this point in time, Stephen Ruth is the only person facing jail time  for “crimes” related to the Suffolk County yellow light scandal. : New York Man Arrested for Cutting Wires to Red Light Cameras After Exposing Government Revenue Generating Scheme BEN KELLER wecanalldobetter: thecheshirecass: untilstarsfall: nabyss: killbenedictcumberbatch: sambolic: westernsocietyfucked100years: cointelpro-plant: Man found the stoplight cameras were activated during yellow lights and decided to cut the wires of it. hero STOP SCROLLING!!!

Prima di tutto bisogna capire cosa si intende con "spazio": la cosiddetta linea di Karman, posta a 100 km sul livello del mare, è convenzionalmente indicata come il confine tra l'atmosfera terrestre e lo spazio. E già a questa quota, o poco più in alto, individuare la Grande Muraglia ad occhio nudo è estremamente difficile. Se si sale ulteriormente le possibilità scendono decisamente a zero. Il perché è presto detto: nonostante la sua lunghezza di molte migliaia di chilometri, questa monumentale opera è però larga circa 10 metri, troppo pochi per individuarla guardando dall'alto. Il mito della Grande Muraglia visibile persino dalla Luna nacque addirittura nel XVIII secolo, ad opera dell'archeologo inglese William Stukeley.
