Anaconda, Bad, and Cars: Garbage @GarbageApe The joke is that the French are cowards, but lay one of them off and the union will shut the factory down and take management hostage until they're rehired with back pay. Lay an American off and they'll apologize to you and give you a $100 tip on their way out. 5/26/18, 11:44 AM View Tweet activity 2,604 Retweets 11.2K Likes t1 1.3K 3.2K Kevin Follow @seekevinrun Replying to @elonmusk I was laid off from lesla yesterday and although it hurts (a lot!), it is the right thing for the company. I don't regret giving all I had and in a way bidding adieu is my last contribution. l'll be cheering Tesla on knowing I did my part. Thanks for the years of memories! 11:34 AM - 12 Jun 2018 40 Retweets 1,169 Likes eo 25 gorgonsach: x American workers as individuals and the labor movement as a whole is so demoralized that the average worker is convinced that working in an at will state is fine, that unions are bad, that collective bargaining and labor rights are a聽 thing of the past, and that the rich are this benevolent group that they too can be a part of if they just work hard enough and save. Americans are sycophantic and cowardly when it comes to fighting corporate power. Our entire culture is permeated with a corporate ethos. We claim to hate tyranny and authoritarianism by the government, yet we have no problem with corporate tyranny and corporate measures to spy on us, tell us what to do, and tell us what we can think and say.聽 At least people in other countries can flip cars over and burn things and show their anger when corporate power tries to take over their country or when companies want to slash benefits. It鈥檚 also interesting that we are one of the hardest working (in hours) Western nation yet we are one of the most unproductive . who would have thought that treating your workers right is actually beneficial in the longterm for a companies interests.聽

Anaconda, Cute, and God: tripropellant i'm 100% not joking when i say that my gut reaction to this image is "this is a being of incredible power". i know that totally sounds like a joke i would make but i'm legitimately scared and impressed by and in awe at this thing tripropellant i have just been informed that this creature's name is ZHDUN, which sounds like the name of an ancient and long-forgotten deity and sounds exactly like what this thing's name would be mostdecoratedarsoninvestigator Zhdun loosely translates to "to wait". He waits tripropellant it's supposed to be a cute sculpture based on the idea of someone waiting for news at a hospital but i much prefer to think of it as a manifestation of the unfathomably powerful will of some kind of slumbering chthonic entity tripropellant a lot of people seem to be reblogging this post with zero commentary other than tagging it as #zhdun. i just want to inform everyone that every time you repeat his name like that you bring us one step closer to the moment when he gets out of that chair and begins to systematically inhale the entire physical universe vrabia the world could really do with an ancient benevolent god of hospital hallways whenever it appears there's always an empty seat next to it and you can sit there for as long as you need. it's there for you when you're sick and in pain and waiting for a verdict, when you're overwhelmed with anxiety or when you've been waiting for seven hours for news of how a loved one's life-saving surgery went. a kindly, quiet grey blob who waits with you in that suspended state of uncertainty. it's very old and very powerful and knows that hospitals are places of healing and hope only when studied superficially. at the core they are places of fear. a million terrors, great and small, seeping into the walls. so zhdun waits with you #stories #ngl i made myself sad a bit, mostly bc i could really use zhdun waiting with me sometimes #look at it it's so sweet and benevolent and not at all intimidating #it wouldn't judge you if you sat next to it and you cried An old god for the modern world

9/11, Africa, and Being Alone: now you kno! In 2002, Kenyan Masai tribespeople donated 14 cows to to the U.S to help with the aftermath of 9/11. nowyoukno.com thestoicgod: hutchj: thestoicgod: velocicrafter: markingatlightspeed: cyanwrites: iammyfather: evilelitest2: petitepenquin: mehofkirkwall: disputedthreshermaw: natrsrants: deadcatwithaflamethrower: jadedhavok: randomthingsthatilike123: gweatherwax: awesomonster: obese-starving-artist: the-treble: nowyoukno: Source聽for more facts on your dash follow NowYouKno That was super nice of them. And now I鈥檓 mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that鈥檚 really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all. American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because 鈥渘obody helped the US in our disasters.鈥 . Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O It isn鈥檛 just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here鈥檚 a quote from Wikipedia: 鈥淭raditional Maasai聽lifestyle聽centres around their聽cattle聽which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man鈥檚 wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor.[37]聽A Maasai聽religious belief聽relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that聽rustling聽cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.[38]鈥 So its not just 鈥渢hey gave us 14 cows鈥, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don鈥檛 know about it. Wait, you guys DON鈥橳 KNOW that we offer help to the US when you have disasters??????? Shit, down here in Brazil we not only offered to send tracking units and doctors to help in 9/11 but we wanted to send a whole lot of donations to help with Katrina (we have experience with floods down here so we knew what kind of medicine to send to prevent outbreaks).聽 We alone had like 2 army airplanes full of medicine and non-perishables like baby formula, diapers, bottled water, mosquito nets and other stuff that鈥檚 needed to fight opportunistic diseases that hit flooded areas, enough to assist a good few thousand people at least, ready to go the day after it hit, but your government refused the donations.聽 The same thing happened to the Canadians and Europeans who offered help, the US embassies around the world told us all to give money to Red Cross. And so we did, we all gave hundreds of millions of dollars to them, and then this happened: Red Cross scandals tarnish relief efforts 鈥楤reathtaking鈥 Waste and Fraud in Hurricane Aid So please, don鈥檛 you go spreading misinformation and prejudice against the rest of the world, WE DID OFFER HELP AND ORGANIZED IT EVEN FASTER THAN BUSH DID, BUT Y鈥橝LL REFUSED IT.聽 Oh wow I had no idea this happened it鈥檚 really not talked about in media at all wow this is something good to know about wow I鈥檓 so angry. I didn鈥檛 know that other countries tried to help after 9/11 or Katrina. Like, that鈥檚 something we, the people, should hear about and we don鈥檛. Please don鈥檛 blame us for the shitty decisions our government makes. We don鈥檛 have as much control over our government as we would like to think and they keep a lot from us. Spread this shit.聽 After Katrina, Cuba donated several hundred blankets. Think about that. A country that is suffering economically due directly to the US embargo offered to help us when we needed it by sending what they could. And once again, it was refused. We have a government that is so self-righteous that we refuse to accept disaster aid in order to maintain this facade that we are the most generous nation on earth. Okay, Katrina thing.Only Texans really knows this? and even then it鈥檚 not wide spread.Mexico sent their army.They sent their army for relief efforts. Didn鈥檛 call ahead, they drove all the way to San Antonio with doctors and food and all sorts of supplies.When people actually got a call from them saying 鈥淗ey, we鈥檙e sending people up.鈥漈he people who answered said 鈥淲hat? We can鈥檛鈥︹濃淭oo late, already there.鈥漈his was while the government was turning down help.So yeah, other countries send relief.Forest fires up in Washington last year? Firefighters from Australia came up to assist.Like鈥 we don鈥檛 hear about this shit. At all. I can second the above with the fires.聽 Most the time, when people say聽鈥渙h FEMA or something sent people right?鈥 re: fires, its actually people from other countries showing up and kinda ignoring the government telling them to fuck off and staying on behalf of local departments because we REALLY need them.聽 If there鈥檚 a huge ass disaster, and the government is sitting there with a thumb up it鈥檚 ass, help is offered and most the time鈥 shit, it gets there!But then the feds do something really fucking dirty.They insist they were the help, if it鈥檚 talked about at all.聽 They insist those people putting out fires were federal people, because to most people a fireman鈥檚 a fireman. The people handing out water and food, a relief worker is a relief worker. So on and so forth.聽 We had people come up when the fires were so bad a while ago鈥 not the Australians, but i think there was like a German group of like 3 guys that flew themselves over? They came out of sheer聽鈥渢his is horrible and we鈥檙e helping鈥 and my dad [local fire chief] had them working with our guys and the feds lost no time telling every news outlet that it was THEIR people doing all the fire knockdowns and structure work when these guys were running into buildings and grabbing people, pets, and people鈥檚 important documents because they knew papers were a pain in the ass to replace.聽 What you gotta understand is that our government is very intent on selling us and the rest of the world [as much as possible] the idea of a powerful and self reliant country. All our reporting on disasters, starts with the scaremongering and then moves to聽鈥渂ut our people can handle it because we鈥檙e the best at handling things鈥 and then they move on before the idea it鈥檚 out of control comes to mind. The average person outside of the disaster has no idea, if they have never been around such an event or met someone who regularly deals with these things, they will kinda probably nod along with that. Because we have no real scope on the scale and impact鈥 by design. Our media intake is very controlled to slant everything to the聽鈥渆h, we can handle it and everyone else out there鈥 they need our help because they鈥檙e not so good at handling disasters like we are.鈥漃eople who know better, reading international news, interacting with international social groups, looking outside their sphere of community鈥 we know better but that kinda slant is really hard to break from because of that grip American media has on information.So, taking that knowledge, we further have restricted reporting on certain disasters because they鈥檙e considered unimportant.聽Hurricanes are considered important, earthquakes are only considered important if it wrecks something the government cares about or somewhere a couple million people live that they鈥檒l upset the national money flow/they can throw money at someone to make the news care, floods are only important if it鈥檚 in a similar manner to earthquakes but since they occur annually they鈥檙e rarely reported on nationally, mudslides that kill people or leave hundreds homeless aren鈥檛 important to the government even through they happen constantly, wildfires that consume most of the nation/continent each year generally are unimportant until they consume a town or threaten a government interest/money flow location. Terrorist attacks are always important because people will talk about them. So, when we do get help for any of the above, it鈥檚 possible that most people may have no idea about what鈥檚 happened, let alone that help鈥檚 been sent. Or if people know something happened, the details are vague鈥 the news don鈥檛 care to give the nitty gritty. You鈥檒l know something happened and people are suffering and聽鈥済ee, isn鈥檛 it good you鈥檙e not them鈥 and then now the weather. So, yeah, basically no one really knows we get help. International response to Hurricane Katrina: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_response_to_Hurricane_Katrina聽 We got HELLA help, but nobody really talks about it American Media really fails regularly聽 Hurricane Sandy, Quebec sends power line crews down to assist in restoring power. 聽California gets rid of water bombers due to budget cuts, Canada sends theirs down to help fight wild fires. Amazing what living on the border and having outside TV News does to your information flow. After Katrina, Denmark offered to donate water purification units so people wouldn鈥檛 get sick from drinking contaminated water, but the offer was declined. A private Danish company built a mobile satellite phone booth and drove it around the poor neighbourhoods in Mississippi and Louisiana so people could call their families and insurance companies for free (apparently there was a deadline for reporting damages but people couldn鈥檛 call in because their mobile phones were dead and landlines were down). American propaganda is not a thing of the past, nor is it a new thing. It has been around forever, telling stories of exceptionalism and self-reliance while our government tries its hardest to refuse the help of others and offer its own to them, to try and force other nations onto their back foot and remain aggressively benevolent in international matters, so that it can lord that shit over them in negotiations and the media in general.I guarantee you America would have a less jingoistic, less xenophobic populace overall if this sort of information were actually reported to us. If we weren鈥檛 always fed the lie of helping the world without any gratitude or help in return. If the media didn鈥檛 present us as world police and instead as a part of the community, as other countries try hard to include us as, then maybe Americans would actually act like they鈥檙e part of a fucking community.But global citizens are hard to monger fear and distrust and xenophobia and nationalism with. They鈥檙e hard to control with propaganda and hate. They鈥檙e hard to keep ignorant and docile and saying 鈥渢his is fine鈥 while the empire burns.A lot of Americans wonder why our country is seen as a worldwide bully. Shit like that, my friends. Shit like that. Its hubris is seemingly limitless. C O M M E N T A R Y FYI: They left out the part where America鈥檚 rudeness kicked in and turned down the offer of the cows. The US government is really tryna kill its people. Someone offered water purification units and they were like 鈥渘ah,鈥 let those tricks get sick. @hutchj how about the U.S. passed a law recently making CBD, the non-psychoactive derivative of cannabis, illegal as a Schedule A drug, EVEN THOUGH IT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO REDUCE EPILEPTIC SEIZURES IN CHILDREN TO ZERO among a dozen other ailments having been reduced to nominal levels allowing ppl to function normally (ADHD, chronic pain, IBS, menstrual cramps, Alzheimer鈥檚, etc). Doctors around the country (that Big Pharma can鈥檛 buy off) are fighting back for their patients鈥 well-being. 馃槨

Capitalism corrupts our human instincts and emphasizes our capacity to be horrible to each other. fuck shit The irony about freemarket theology, which is what I consider it, is that it makes the claim that a free market will lead to the best possible outcome for both the consumer and the business and thus the entire nation/society, yet we can see here that letting the market do its thing aka letting corporations do whatever they want creates a schism when it comes to benefits: the benefits all go to the massive corporation and the consumers who are supposed to benefit from the allegedly benevolent actions of the market end up getting screwed. When exactly does the worshipped supply and demand come into play to save the day? No consumer is demanding to pay this much money. Free marketers will retort with well the government is responsible for making these companies monopolies!! REALLY?? And even if that is true (in some cases it is) having no government and no regulations at all I doubt would translate into the utop铆a freemarketers promise. The market is incapable of fixing many problems and leads to the creation of monopolies. Competition doesnt always lead to innovation and often leads to mightier companies buying out and destroying smaller ones. This notion that the freemarket represents everyones choices is absolute hogwash. Idk why this made me so mad like wtf
