Donald Trump, Fuck You, and Irish: Deborah Irish Cornaire 2Conversation Starter 6 hrs Here is George Clooney's response after Trump accused him of being a "Hollywood elite." "Here's the thing: I grew up in Kentucky. I sold insurance door-to-door. I sold ladies' shoes. I worked at an all-night liquor store. I would buy suits that were too big and too long and cut the bottom of the pants off to make ties so l'd have a tie to go on job interviews. I grew up understanding what it was like to not have health insurance for eight years. So this idea that I'm somehow the "Hollywood elite" and this guy who takes a shit in a gold toilet is somehow the man of the people is laughable. People in Hollywood, for the most part, are people from the Midwest who moved to Hollywood to have a career. So this idea of "coastal elites" living in a bubble is ridiculous. Who lives in a bigger bubble? He lives in a gold tower and has twelve people in his company. He doesn't run a corporation of hundreds of thousands of people he employs and takes care of. He ran a company of twelve people! When you direct a film you have seven different unions all wanting different things, you have to find consensus with all of them, and you have to get them moving in the same direction. He's never had to do any of that kind of stuff. I just look at it and I laugh when I see him say "Hollywood elite." Hollywood elite? I don't have a star on Hollywood Boulevard, Donald Trump has a star on Hollywood Boulevard! Fuck you!" - George Clooney actor, philanthropist, humanitarian & activist macgregorsiolalpin: Most so-called Hollywood Elites didn’t have their daddy’s giving them millions of dollars every year.

Churches have been running summer lunch programs for kids and families that can’t afford meals for years. There are tons of private charities and donations. And the fact is they’re right, these meals are not really free. Now of course I’m not mad the kids get to eat, but please don’t conflate pointing out the difference between free market charity and tax funded charity with not wanting to feed people. I might be revoking my libertarian card by saying this, but this is quite possibly one of the most worthwhile uses of tax money I’ve seen in a long time. Again, there’s no denying that this is a more worthy expenditure than many others and if this were all taxes were going to I’d be perfectly fine with it as a transition until a more private option is put in place. If I were to start eliminating taxes tomorrow the money going to food programs would definitely not be high on the list. But that’s just it, the money we spent on those programs is peanuts in the grand scheme of how much we are taxed.My point is that when people express concern over taxation, they are almost immediately accused of not caring for humanitarian efforts, as though the government is the only humanitarian organization out there when in fact the government is the most inefficient and terrible humanitarian organizations out there. The same money that goes to feed these kids goes to kill hundreds more in the Middle East. It’s absolutely ridiculous to act like the vast majority of taxes are just their “to benefit society“ instead of starting wars and lining the pockets of bureaucrats who regulate our freedoms into oblivion.

America, Bad, and Children: OhNoSheTwitnt @OhNoSheTwitnt Following The people who lost their shit when Michelle Obama said that kids should eat vegetables are totally cool with Trump putting kids in concentration camps. 7:06 AM-14 Jun 2018 53 Retweets 159 L beardedboggan: bladedpetals: for-southendgirls: femmeradical: pro-uterus-agenda: cocksmasher69: It’s because the kids aren’t white Obviously what’s happening to these kids is horrific but should we really be calling them concentrating camps though? What do Jewish people think about this? Hello, Mexican here. They are fucking modern day concentration camps. Children, even infants, are being ripped from their homes, forced into overcrowded abandoned Walmart’s, with only 2 hours a day of outside time. This is no way for children to live. There is a mural on the wall of Trump with the quote, “Sometimes by losing the battle you find a way to win the war.” Do you know what people call shit like that? Propaganda. You can fuck all the way off. I cannot fucking believe you chose to fucking nitpick how this humanitarian problem is discussed because you’re uncomfortable with the horrors happening right before our eyes and would rather call it “problematic.” I can’t fucking stand gringos for bullshit like this. Hi, Jew here! They are concentration camps and any Jew worth their history will tell you that. The Trump murals, the “we’re just going to take your baby for a bath”, the photos of confiscated rosary beads, the older children taking care of younger children they have no relation to because there are no parents around. We see this shit and it sends chills up our spines because that was the kind of shit gentiles ignored because it wasn’t “that bad”. It wasn’t “that bad” when they were just confiscating our wedding rings and throwing them into a pile because we were “prisoners”, because it wasn’t “that bad” when they were separating children from their mothers to put them into a separate barracks, because it wasn’t “that bad” when little kids were having to flee through Kindertransport without their parents.  This also isn’t the first time this has been done in America. The Japanese were held in concentration camps here during WWII. And what’s happening now sounds strikingly similar to that as well. A concentration camp is literally just a place where you concentrate a certain group of people against their will. What kind of a dumb fuck defends and nitpicks the wording on what this is? It’s a concentration camp, you fuckwit.

Family, Food, and Friends: lt's Been Eight Years Since The Massive Earthquake in Haiti And Millions Are Still Suffering @balleralert hotoGrid It’s Been Eight Years Since The Massive Earthquake in Haiti And Millions Are Still Suffering - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this day, eight years ago, a severe earthquake nearly destroyed Haiti. Almost 316,000 lives were taken and more than 1.5 million have had to relocate. According to a new report from the United Nations, there are currently 2.5 million Haitians who are still suffering from the aftermath. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The 2010 Haiti earthquake was not just a simple natural disaster. Since then the people of Haiti have struggled with continuous famine and are forced to live in impoverishment. They’ve also been exposed to the sometimes fatal cholera epidemic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Haitians continue to suffer years after the earthquake,” U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator Mourad Wahba, who has worked in the country for two years, told The WorldPost. “People lost their friends and family. I see the pain in their faces when they talk about it now. It’s a very long healing process.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, over 300,000 Haitians were harmed back in 2010, and the earthquake left 3.3 million with a lack of food supply. More than 80 percent of public housing was destroyed, hundreds became homeless and were forced to live in “tent cities.” School and government buildings were ruined, as well as farmland, decimated crops and irrigation canals. Haiti was once known for its strong agriculture, for which the country relied on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There are still about 55,000 people in camps and makeshift camps,” noted Wahba. “Many are still living in unsanitary conditions due to displacement caused by the earthquake. We have a very long way to go.”
