Cars, Community, and Love: "Don't fight hate with hate" is an example of subtle GASLIGHTING. Where our legitimate hurt and anger at the injustices we suffer is being equated to the bigotry and abuse of our oppressors. Being angry doesn't mean you are being hateful, it means you love yourself enough to get upset at your own mistreatment CREDIT: frontier-heart <p><a href="http://friendly-neighborhood-patriarch.tumblr.com/post/170760269792/rootedinfiction-psiotechniqa-takashi0" class="tumblr_blog">friendly-neighborhood-patriarch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://rootedinfiction.tumblr.com/post/170649718178/psiotechniqa-takashi0-guzmas-beautifly" class="tumblr_blog">rootedinfiction</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://psiotechniqa.tumblr.com/post/170649284658/takashi0-guzmas-beautifly-being-angry-is-one" class="tumblr_blog">psiotechniqa</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://takashi0.tumblr.com/post/170648264011/guzmas-beautifly-being-angry-is-one-thing-being" class="tumblr_blog">takashi0</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://guzmas-beautifly.tumblr.com/post/170578603445/being-angry-is-one-thing-being-hateful-is" class="tumblr_blog">guzmas-beautifly</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Being angry is one thing, being hateful is another.

College, Dad, and Drake: HEATSTREET POLITICS TECH CULTURE WARS BIZ ENTERTAINMENT LIFE College Expels Male Student Who Says He Was 'Raped' by Woman (And Fires His Dad for Complaining) Both students filed complaints, but only the man was investigated. According to Drake, Rosley's son filed his complaint against the woman to retaliate against her. The son's lawsuit, however, alleges that both he and the other student were intoxicated, but the woman initiated oral sex on him. It added that he wasn't "in a state to be with her" and "not able to give consent that night." Rossley's lawsuit, meanwhile, claims the female student said "on the record" during a hearing that she indeed has initiated sex without the son's consent. In addition, the lawsuit alleges that the accused man's disabilities weren't accommodated during the investigation. In a nine hour hearing, Drake "forced" the son "to be his own advocate and act as his own legal representative despite knowing full well" that he has language disability, the lawsuit says. Drake barred Rossley from his son's hearing and did not offer any support, whereas the female student family received "comfort rooms," it claims. The suit claims that the father was told to stop complaining about the process and eventually was asked to step down from his position at the university because of "conflict of interest." badgerknox Leader 1 Mar having laws that only apply to one gender is sexist and perpetuates sexism she should at least be investigated.

Baller Alert, Memes, and Iran: Two American Athletes Who Play Professionally In Iran Unable To Return To The Country @baller alert Two American Athletes Who Play Professionally In Iran Unable To Return To The Country - blogged by: @eleven8- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two American athletes are unable to return to their jobs in Iran after being banned from the country — a result of Trump’s travel ban. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JosephJones and JPPrince, two American basketball players who currently play overseas in Iran, are unable to return to their jobs after Iran, in retaliation to the UnitedStates’ muslim ban, prohibited Americans from entering their country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jones and Prince were on a team-funded break in Dubai when Trump signed the executive order barring people from Iran and 6 other muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. In return, Iran banned those from the United States from entering Iran. While at first it would seem like no one would really have a desire to go to Iran, for Jones and Prince, their life and six-figure income is in that country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “At the moment they are stranded,”Eric Fleisher, the agent for both players, told The Vertical. “It’s a real hardship.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both players stand to lose a substantial amount of money due to not being able to return to Iran. They could lose six-figures if they’re unable to complete the season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are waiting for clarity from the team,” Fleisher said. “It’s tough. It doesn’t look like they can finish the season in Iran. It’s not good to be out of a job. Secondarily, all their things are in Iran. They can’t go back and get them. It’s been difficult.”

Memes, The Office, and The Departed: VIETNAM VETERANS COME FIRST WA WAITING ROOM Days into Donald Trump’s administration, heads are finally beginning to roll at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Two notoriously corrupt employees in Puerto Rico were fired this week, indicating that more may be on the way. One is the hospital’s CEO, DeWayne Hamlin, who offered an employee $305,000 to quit after she played a role in exposing his drug arrest. “Mr. DeWayne Hamlin was removed from federal service effective January 20, 2017,” the VA said. Under former Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald, the agency ignored years of evidence about shoddy work ethic, theft and whistleblower retaliation. The VA finally began a months-long investigative proceeding last year, after an outside agency, the Office of Special Counsel, prodded VA leadership. Trump so quickly, even before the approval of the new Minister of Veterans Affairs, have taken up cleaning the VA from corrupt employees. The staff of the VA under Obama left much to be desired, it was characterized by irresponsibility and negligence, as well as the former US president. Trump has a huge experience in recruitment, so during his term as president only professionals will be in charge of social services for American Veterans. Looking forward to Trump stomping on all corruption of the left. veteranscomefirst veterans_us Veterans Usveterans veteransUSA SupportVeterans Politics USA America Patriots Gratitude HonorVets thankvets supportourtroops semperfi USMC USCG USAF Navy Army military godblessourmilitary soldier holdthegovernmentaccountable RememberEveryoneDeployed Usflag StarsandStripes

Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and George W. Bush: In 2 Terms, Barack Obama Had Fewer Scandals Than Donald Trump Has Hadin The Last 2 Weeks Global NEWS 17 thsoulia4 WASHINGTON ― Scandal has consumed the final four years of every two-term president in modern history ― George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon. Barack Obama’s administration is the exception. While there were some minor scandals and resignations during Obama’s eight years in office, wrongdoing never fully occupied his presidency. None of it even directly touched the White House. There were no grand juries investigating his aides. There were no impeachments. There were neither convictions of White House staffers, nor pardons to protect government officials.This was a significant departure from the previous four two-term presidents. George W. Bush’s second term featured convictions related to the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal, in which more than a dozen lobbyists and government officials went to jail for corruption. There were also convictions related to the politically motivated purge of U.S. attorneys and the retaliatory leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity. As everyone who was sentient in the 1990s recalls, Clinton was impeached over his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. Reagan’s second term was plagued by corruption investigations ranging from Iran-Contra to Wedtech, a contracting scandal that led to the resignation of Attorney General Ed Meese. And, of course, there were Nixon’s final two years in office, which featured the convictions of 48 government officials and the first presidential resignation over corruption. All of these past scandals directly involved White House staff. Karl Rove, Bush’s top political adviser, and Lewis Libby, a senior adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, both were implicated in leaking Plame’s name to the press in retaliation for an op-ed that her husband, former Ambassador Joe Wilson, wrote that showed that the president had lied about Iraq’s pursuit of nuclear weapons in his 2003 State of the Union address. While Rove was not prosecuted, Libby was convicted of obstruction of justice. Bush later commuted the sentence. The Clinton administration’s major scandal was related to the president’s own actions. The Iran-Contra scandal consumed the entire national security arm of the 17thsoulja 🔽

CHINA IS ACTUALLY THE 3RD TOP BUYER OF OUR EXPORTS! <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://gop-tea-pub.tumblr.com/post/138802221522">gop-tea-pub</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>THE COMMON MYTH: “We needn’t care about our exports to China since they don’t buy anything from us anyways.”<br/><br/> THE REALITY: Actually, they do. China is the 3rd top buyer of our exports, purchasing $123.7 billion of our exports in 2014, alone. [a] [b]<br/><br/> Many people are swayed by <b>Trump or Sanders</b> who often argue against what they consider unfair or unjust global trade. Some of their supporters assume that a tariff war with China wouldn’t harm us since it’s commonly stated that China doesn’t buy anything from us. But in regards to who buys our exports, only Canada and Mexico surpass China. In fact, in reference to countries which don’t physically border us and therefore experience the natural benefit of reduced transportation costs, China is actually our best customer. <br/><br/> The top exports from the U.S. to China are [b]:<br/><br/> • Seed oil, fruit, grain, seeds, etc.<br/> • Commodities<br/> • Vehicles<br/><br/> CONCLUSION:<br/> When someone dismisses China as irrelevant, under the assumption that they don’t buy anything from us, correct them. <br/><br/> Sources:<br/> ———————–<br/> [a]<br/><a href="http://www.trade.gov/mas/ian/build/groups/public/@tg_ian/documents/webcontent/tg_ian_003364.pdf">http://www.trade.gov/mas/ian/build/groups/public/@tg_ian/documents/webcontent/tg_ian_003364.pdf</a><br/><br/> [b]<br/><a href="http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/092815/chinas-top-trading-partners.asp#ixzz3ywNwdFP4">http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/092815/chinas-top-trading-partners.asp#ixzz3ywNwdFP4</a><br/></p> </blockquote>
