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 for more facts on your dash follow NowYouKno That was super nice of them. And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s 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 “nobody helped the US in our disasters.” . Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O It isn’t 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’s a quote from Wikipedia: “Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s 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] A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.[38]” So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, 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’t know about it. Wait, you guys DON’T 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).  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’s 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.  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 ‘Breathtaking’ Waste and Fraud in Hurricane Aid So please, don’t 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’ALL REFUSED IT.  Oh wow I had no idea this happened it’s really not talked about in media at all wow this is something good to know about wow I’m so angry. I didn’t know that other countries tried to help after 9/11 or Katrina. Like, that’s something we, the people, should hear about and we don’t. Please don’t blame us for the shitty decisions our government makes. We don’t have as much control over our government as we would like to think and they keep a lot from us. Spread this shit.  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’s not wide spread.Mexico sent their army.They sent their army for relief efforts. Didn’t 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 “Hey, we’re sending people up.”The people who answered said “What? We can’t…”“Too late, already there.”This 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… we don’t hear about this shit. At all. I can second the above with the fires.  Most the time, when people say “oh FEMA or something sent people right?” 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.  If there’s a huge ass disaster, and the government is sitting there with a thumb up it’s ass, help is offered and most the time– shit, it gets there!But then the feds do something really fucking dirty.They insist they were the help, if it’s talked about at all.  They insist those people putting out fires were federal people, because to most people a fireman’s a fireman. The people handing out water and food, a relief worker is a relief worker. So on and so forth.  We had people come up when the fires were so bad a while ago– 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 “this is horrible and we’re helping” 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’s important documents because they knew papers were a pain in the ass to replace.  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 “but our people can handle it because we’re the best at handling things” and then they move on before the idea it’s 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– by design. Our media intake is very controlled to slant everything to the “eh, we can handle it and everyone else out there– they need our help because they’re not so good at handling disasters like we are.”People who know better, reading international news, interacting with international social groups, looking outside their sphere of community– 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’re considered unimportant. 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’ll upset the national money flow/they can throw money at someone to make the news care, floods are only important if it’s in a similar manner to earthquakes but since they occur annually they’re rarely reported on nationally, mudslides that kill people or leave hundreds homeless aren’t 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’s possible that most people may have no idea about what’s happened, let alone that help’s been sent. Or if people know something happened, the details are vague– the news don’t care to give the nitty gritty. You’ll know something happened and people are suffering and “gee, isn’t it good you’re not them” 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  We got HELLA help, but nobody really talks about it American Media really fails regularly  Hurricane Sandy, Quebec sends power line crews down to assist in restoring power.  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’t 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’t 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’t always fed the lie of helping the world without any gratitude or help in return. If the media didn’t 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’re part of a fucking community.But global citizens are hard to monger fear and distrust and xenophobia and nationalism with. They’re hard to control with propaganda and hate. They’re hard to keep ignorant and docile and saying “this is fine” 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’s 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 “nah,” 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’s, etc). Doctors around the country (that Big Pharma can’t buy off) are fighting back for their patients’ well-being. 😡

Memes, Zombies, and Principal: enez 01 AGOSTO 2017 Dios indeciso entre renovar Venezuela o que esta sea su última temporada 1.1 E LC HIGUIREBIP 0 LAR.NE T En las oficinas de El Cielo Televisión, Media… y Algo Más S.R.L., se llevó a cabo hoy una airada reunión en la que Dios, principal directivo y presidente de ese canal televisivo manifestó tener serias dudas sobre si se debía renovar la controversial serie Venezuela, o por el contrario dejar que esta sea su última temporada - Dios, quien abusando de su omnipresencia está en este momento respirándote en el hombro mientras lees este artículo, confesó que su principal duda es que los escritores puedan quedarse sin ideas. “Admito que Venezuela es de mis series favoritas. Tiene drama con la detención de Ledezma, tragedia con la detención de Leopoldo, chisme con el embarazo de Lilian, traición, pasión y hasta comedia del absurdo. ¡Hasta hay zombies en la Constituyente! Tenemos villanos de verdad con Diosdado o Jorge Rodríguez. Y a Maria Corina, que con esas franelas sube el rating. Es decir, lo tiene todo. Y esto últimos meses la serie ha estado tan buena que ni los ataques terroristas en Europa hacen que me la pierda. Sin embargo, acabo de ver los últimos episodios y siento que ya le estamos dando largas al asunto. Me da miedito que comiencen a pasar esas cosas que ya nadie podrá creerse. Lo único que vamos a lograr es aburrir a la audiencia. Así que estamos aquí debatiéndonos: unos quieren que en el próximo capítulo los sorprendamos a todos con un final de temporada bien arriba y comenzar a hacer la siguiente temporada, y otros dicen que ya esté bueno, que cancelemos ahora, dejando a Maduro y a Diosdado convertidos en un robot hermafrodita que se queda con el país. ¡Ya veremos qué va a pasar!” manifestó Dios, mientras aprobaba la compra de unas loncheras con el logo del canal para guardar las hostias.

Memes, Uno, and Venezuela: Ministro hace compras nerviosas y sale con 3 camionetas nuevas E L C HIG UIREBIP OLA R NE T Las venideras “elecciones” de la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente (ANC) tienen a Venezuela como si se acercara el fin del mundo. Muchos de los ciudadanos –que aún no se han ido– se han lanzado de manera frenética a los supermercados a abastecerse de lo que consigan. Y esta situación no excluye a altos funcionarios del Gobierno como es el caso de un ministro a quien por seguridad lo llamaremos por su segundo nombre, Anónimo, que debido a la locura de las compras nerviosas terminó adquiriendo 3 camionetas nuevas - “Coño, todo este peo me tiene mal, vale. En las calles oigo y que viene un peo. En mi casa mi mujer anda con que no tendremos qué comer. Y los colegas camaradas siguen con la güevonada de que ya no podremos seguir robando ¿Te imaginas? Por eso salí como loco a comprar algo, lo que sea, porque uno nunca sabe. Llené una avioneta de comida de Aruba y le pagué hasta la universidad a los chamos que aún están en primaria. Sin embargo, todavía me quedaba un efectivo ahí que preferí gastarlo en tres 4Runner. Están bonitas las coño de madre y aunque en verdad no las necesitaba, cualquier vaina tengo eso ahí por si pasa algo” aseguró el ministro Anónimo mientras le escribía a otro ministro para preguntarle si por fin la ANC va o no.

Anaconda, Memes, and Netflix: Trancazo opositor bloquea movimiento de la Tierra E L C HIG UIREBIPOL AR.NE T Las manifestaciones de descontento contra el Gobierno continúan y el día de hoy se volvió a llevar a acabo un “trancazo”. Sin embargo, este fue distinto porque no duró ni 6, ni 10 horas sino que bloqueó el movimiento de rotación de la Tierra - Nuestro pasante subpagado, quien quedó atrapado en el trancazo porque lo obligamos a ir a la oficina aunque nadie iba a ir, aprovechó para conversar con Miguel González (19), miembro de la Resistencia, quién antes de pedirle dinero le explicó cómo hicieron para parar el planeta. “Bueno mi pana, ya son más de 100 días que estamos en esto. Así que ya aprendimos cómo se mueve la calle y la tierra entera. Por eso junto a ese conocimiento y un par de documentales de Netflix descubrimos que si colocamos suficiente peso en las barricadas estratégicas del trancazo, podemos detener la Tierra y hacerle entender al mundo que ya no queremos esta dictadura” sentenció Miguel quien también amenazó que si Maduro sigue en el poder, el siguiente trancazo paraliza el movimiento de traslación - Por otra parte, nuestro pasante subpagado también gastó todos sus megas y pudo hablar con Raul Mejias (32), un chavista que se encontraba de vacaciones en China muy molesto con el trancazo. “No vale, esto no puede ser. Ni acá uno se escapa de las protestas. Yo hoy tenía planificado un día de paseo para comer y conocer la ciudad, pero no voy a poder porque hoy no amanecerá gracias al trancazo. Es momento de que le pongan un parao a la oposición” aseguró Raúl quien luego fue “escracheado” en un restaurante.
