infiniteviking: doughtier: transformativeworks: AO3 won the 2019 Hugo Award for Best Related Work! Here’s the speech given by Naomi Novik when the award was accepted: All fanwork, from fanfic to vids to fanart to podfic, centers the idea that art happens not in isolation but in community. And that is true of the AO3 itself. We’re up here accepting, but only on behalf of literally thousands of volunteers and millions of users, all of whom have come together and built this thriving home for fandom, a nonprofit and non-commercial community space built entirely by volunteer labor and user donations, on the principle that we needed a place of our own that was not out to exploit its users but to serve them. Even if I listed every founder, every builder, every tireless support staff member and translator and tag wrangler, if I named every last donor, all our hard work and contributions would mean nothing without the work of the fan creators who share their work freely with other fans, and the fans who read their stories and view their art and comment and share bookmarks and give kudos to encourage them and nourish the community in their turn. This Hugo will be joining the traveling exhibition that goes to each Worldcon, because it belongs to all of us. I would like to ask that we raise the lights and for all of you who feel a part of our community stand up for a moment and share in this with us.

Gun Owners of America to File Suit Against Arbitrary ATF Bump Stock Ban Fight the bump stock ban through the link in our bio. 2A bumpstock shallnotbeinfringed gunowners gunownersofamerica goa goasupporters: GOA NEWS RELEASE MEDIA CONTACT: JORDAN STEIN DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS JORDAN.STEIN@GUNOWNERS.ORG 703-321-8585 December 18, 2018 For immediate release Gun owners of America to File Suit Against Arbitrary ATF Bump Stock Ban Springfield, VA Gun Owners of America (GOA) and its Foundation (GOF) will be filing suit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) and the Department of Justice to seek an injunction protecting gun owners from their illegal prohibition of bump stocks. Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America said, "As written, this case has important implications for gun owners since, in the coming days, an estimated half a million bump stock owners will have the difficult decision of either destroying or surrendering their valuable property or else risk felony prosecution. ATFs claim that it can rewrite Congressional law cannot pass legal muster. Agencies are not free to rewrite laws under the guise of 'interpretation' of a statute, especially where e law's meaning is clear. "The new ATF regulations would arbitrarily redefine bump stocks as 'machineguns and, down the road, could implicate the right to own AR-15's and many other lawfully owned semi-automatic firearms," Pratt continued. "ATF's new bump stock regulation clearly violates federal law, as bump stocks do not qualify as machineguns under the federal statute." For more information about the suit, or GOA and GOF's recommendation for bump stock owners, please see here Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesmen, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million members and activists.

fuck all these “charities”: this-tragic-affair Charities/organisations to avoid: PETA: They'd rather spend their money on publicity campaigns than on the animals in their care. PETA killed 73.8% of the animals in their care in 2015 (x) FCKH8: Is a for-profit company that exploits oppressed groups for money. They're also wildly uninformed, and spread misogyny, cissexism and bi/panphobia, as well as stealing their posts/designs (x) Autism Speaks: They spend most of their money on researching a way to eliminate autism, heighten the stigma against autism and don't have a single autistic person on their board (x) Please support other, better charities, and feel free to add any others you can think of to this paintedspectres Susan G. Komen for the Cure: CEO makes insane amounts of money, they deny a lot of requests for wigs/help with treatment/etc., and have attempted to sue other charities that use the color pink as part of their anti-breast cancer campaign. xx) prochoice-or-gtfo The Salvation Army: They promote the hatred of LGBT+ people, work with fundamentalist Christian groups to support conservative politics and rip off and exploit workers. (xxx) shitpost-senpai Wounded Warrior: They take money that should be spent on veterans and blow it on huge opulent parties for the company bigwigs. 26 million in 2014 alone wasted! x x) thefingerfuckingfemalefury Important reminder to NOT waste any money donating to these groups ayellowbirds Reblogging because of the added info about Wounded Warrior. arch4ngel A good way to know if a nonprofit you're donating to is allocating their money in the right way is to check out their Charity Navigator darkbookworm13 Signal boosting, the bell ringers are out in force, and this info is too important ayamccabre Depending on where you are, charity budgets may be public.

roguestatistician: awesomehawks: ms-demeanor: rightsmarts: The Imam of Peace drops a MOAB on the U.K. Trump protestors Hello rightsmarts, the latest in conservative news. I’m just reblogging this because it’s gotten around to the punk side of things and sometimes it seems like anarchists forget that PR is important in political movements. The balloon cost around $3k to make and fill, the remainder of the money is going to go to take the balloon on tour. People DID donate $52,000 dollars to the Trump Baby. They also donated $21 million to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) to help the children in detention camps. The comparative cost of the balloon is about a quarter of a percent of what was donated to RAICES alone. You know what’s great about a balloon? It’s ridiculous. It’s got a fun, airy parade feel. You go to a protest with the Trump Baby and you see people who share your values and are equally frustrated with the world - and it’s hard as hell to show a bunch of people having a fun old time with a parade float as dangerous antifa terrorists. (Also it gets news cameras pointed at protests of Trump, and at this point we should all recognize the value of big stunts that get you free press because Trump sure as hell did.) That and it gives frustrated, burned-out activists a bit of a laugh. We’ve got to have levity, we’ve got to be able to enjoy things and have a sense of humor. If we’re all grimly grinding away and donating all of our spare change to the ACLU and only ever talking about the horrible things that are happening we’re going to get too exhausted to carry on. Which is exactly what folks like rightsmarts and Imam Tawhidi want. Oh yeah, that’s the other thing - imamofpeace up there bills himself as a moderate Muslim who wants reform but he’s supported calls for Muslim immigration bans in Australia. He claims to want reform to prevent extremism but denies extremism in his own sect and only targets Muslims of other sects. He doesn’t have many Muslim followers but he does have a lot of twitter followers who seem to like being able to point to Imam Tawhidi and say “see, I’m not islamophobic, I only want to listen to *reasonable* Muslims, like this guy who tells me how backward all those Muslims are and how they’re preparing to take over the west.” So a professional pot-stirrer is criticizing activists for spending the equivalent of a quarter of a percent of their donations on a fun balloon that bring out large crowds to protest, creates feelings of solidarity and levity, and is an excellent PR tool. Yeah, fuck off with your bullshit. People recently crowdfunded a couch for Elon Musk and tried to give Kylie Jenner $100 million so she’d be a round billionaire. Nobody should feel the tiniest bit bad for donating to the construction and display of a protest sign. The Trump Baby balloon is a good investment on the part of protesters and helped ensure that Trump knows he’s not welcome or appreciated by the people of London. (hey by the way this criticism of decadence and fun is the kind of puritanical authoritarian shit that you get from the right and from tankies and it’s why nobody likes tankies. bread AND roses, motherfuckers.) Sharing this with you all.  Reminder - it’s possible for people to do more than one thing at a time! We can spend money on charity and protests. We can fund libraries and food programs. We can laugh at stupid shit on the internet and still read serious news. : 8:20 AM a mobile.twitter.com Sprint Tweet Imam Tawhidi @lmamofpeace If you really cared about babies, you would've given £30,000 to Children's Rights organisations, to help "the children in detention camps".

And in 13 out of 20 of the study’s focus groups, teen participants mentioned trading sex for money or meals. And no they can’t “just get jobs” — they’re caught in the same employment paradox as many young people.

It’s so tragic that this is news to ppl Bc this has been going on forever 😔this is the reality of the United States and it’s only getting worseI remember when the college I dropped out Bc of not having the means to keep going, had a board meeting where ppl brought up how students were living out of their cars /tents and shit and they were ‘so shocked!!’ and all the poor students r just sitting there like ’…..how did u all possibly not know this ? How r u all so ignorant to the reality of the world and ur own institution ???’ lmfao

<p>Ah yes, The favorite liberal meme designed to prick at your outrage sensors and make sure you don’t ever actually pay attention to what you’re looking at.</p> <blockquote>Every dollar of income that is earned in the National Football League — from game tickets, television rights fees, jersey sales and national sponsorships — is subject to tax. None of this income is shielded in a tax-exempt entity. Instead, the NFL’s 32 clubs pay tax on all of these revenues. <p>Claims that the NFL is using a tax exemption to avoid paying the tax due on these revenues are simply misinformed. The confusion arises from the fact that there is one small part of the NFL, unrelated to all this business activity, that is tax-exempt: the NFL League Office. The league office is the administrative and organizational arm of the NFL and does things like write the rules of the game, hire referees, run the college draft, negotiate the collective bargaining agreement with the players, conduct player safety research, and run youth football programs. </p> <p>The league office acts as a trade association for the NFL clubs. In the same way that other trade associations support companies in other lines of business, it establishes rules and standard practices for its members, develops programs to help them run their operations more efficiently and profitably, and promotes the business in the broader community. Trade associations are nonprofit organizations. They don;t engage in any business activity. As a result, they are exempt from being taxed under section 501©(6) of the federal tax code. (Charities are exempt under section 501©(3); the NFL League Office has never claimed to be a charity.) </p> <p>Because the league office does not receive income from game tickets, television contracts and the like, its tax exemption does not apply to any of the profits earned in the NFL overall. All the money-making activity is conducted by the for-profit, taxable teams.</p></blockquote> <br/><p> The vast majority of the NFL&rsquo;s income has always been taxed, and what little tax-exempt status they did have they gave up in 2015.</p> <p><br/>Sources: <br/><a href="http://www.snopes.com/politics/taxes/nflexempt.asp">http://www.snopes.com/politics/taxes/nflexempt.asp</a> <br/><a href="http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2015/04/why-the-nfl-decided-to-start-paying-taxes/391742/">http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2015/04/why-the-nfl-decided-to-start-paying-taxes/391742/</a></p> <p><br/>But hey, don&rsquo;t let something like facts stop you from railing against &ldquo;Muh evil capitalism&rdquo;.</p>: My name is Roger Goodale, and I am the commissioner of the NFL I made $44.2 million in 2012, an exorbitant salary that regular taxpayers subsidized because the NFL is "nonprofit" and therefore tax-exempt.
