America, Animals, and Cars: glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe Lyft driver: "Your name, is Slavic? Me too. Bulgarian. I drive fast for you, brother." Now he's waxing philosophical about the Ottoman Empire imperialism, and human nature. "Humans? We are the most dangerous animal. Other animals, they kill when they need to We kill when we think we need to. It is not the same" He just monologued about climate change and the military industrial complex, and the difficulty of having a Balkan identity when every Balkan country changes hands "every twenty years". "Our history is getting swallowed by the biggest fish, and that fish getting swallowed by the next biggest fish, and so on." He had so many more gems. We compared family names, realized that his daughter shares my grandfather's name (the feminine version), and then he started talking about The Old Country. The city where he grew up had a population of 300, and the population of his whole country could fit inside Chicago. He came here twenty years ago seeking a better life, but "everything in America is too big, the cars, the problems, the inequality" He pointed to his phone and called it "stupid little computer" that's meant to control his life, not to improve it, and how the world is getting steadily worse and the little people can't do anything about it. He told me to continue my studies so that I don't grow up to work in the service industry and can instead try to stop the concentration of power into the hands of corrupt people. Then he shrugged and said, "But who knows? Can anyone do it? I don't know if it's possible." I tipped him 25% You just met an Old God Paging Neil Gaiman

Af, America, and Apparently: FOX NEWS .com Twisted Ivy: Harvard students say US bigger threat to world peace than ISIS Published October 08, 2014| FoxNews.com CAMPUS REFORM They got most of their SAT questions right, but students at Harvard blew this lay-up posed by the college blog Campus Reform: Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.? Various students at the hallowed Ivy League school said they believe that America, not the Muslim fanatics who behead innocent people, is the biggest threat to world peace. The students were interviewed on the quad by Campus Reform on Saturday, and the shocking video was posted on Tuesday As a Westem evization were to b taot af he pratwe'e facing now," one student said during an interview. "I don't think anyone would argue that we didn't create the problem of ISIS, ourselves." Most of the other students interviewed shared the same sentiment- that ISIS would not exist had it not been for the past actions of the U.S. American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power," said another student. Caleb Bonham, editor of Campus Reform, conducted the interviews and said that the students' response is nothing new. "This video demonstrates the absurdity behind the bash America fad," Bonham told FoxNews.com. "Unfortunately, too many students think it is intellectual to try and piece together a reason why America is a greater threat than this terrorist organization trying to establish a caliphate through public executions, bombings and beheadings zarekthelordofthefries: writingfail: thebaconsandwichofregret: lizzysmart: sandandglass: Fox News shocked that Harvard students think the US is a greater threat to world peace than ISIS. Students who don’t agree with Fox are ‘twisted’, elitist and wrong apparently.  Source Next Gen STAND UP Did they miss the part where these kids said that ISIS wouldn’t exist without Imperialist intervention in areas like the Middle East? (I’m not singling out America because I’m British and we’ve been fucking up the world since long before America has) I love how the Harvard students give strong arguments on why the U.S. (and its allies, of course, such as Canada and Western Europe) is one of the biggest threats to world peace and all Fox News can say is “this–this is just a FAD” I think it’s really notable that their answers inherently understand the question itself moreso than Fox does, too. The question isn’t “who are the worse people” or something, it’s “who causes the biggest threat to world peace.” It’s clear that Fox doesn’t even understand what they’re asking since their only argument for ISIS being the bigger threat to world peace is that they behead people. Like, yeah, beheading people is really fucking bad, but that doesn’t mean any serial killer who’s ever beheaded anyone is a major threat to world peace. They don’t grasp that it’s the systemic power of these forces and their historical abuse of that power that makes them threats, and that no moral or philosophical ideology will make the US a lesser threat to world peace (but of course they don’t fuckin get that power is the most important factor, they’re fuckin fascists).

Bad, Birthday, and Clothes: Jordan Gleason April 1 at 9:06pm This is a longer post, so bear with me... Today I had to explain to a 60 year old man why he was banned from the pub In January he made several sexist remarks about the female staff that were working. He told them to their faces that that he liked looking at their tits while they washed dishes, and their asses while they were pouring drinks. He was told to leave and not come back. He came back last month, and was told we wouldn't serve him. He came back yet again today, and when told he wouldn't be served demanded to talk to a manger l sat with him for a few minutes as he explained that what he said would have been okay 20 years ago, and that it was just some off colour remarks. He told me he had apologized, and that he guessed my servers were too sensitive. He then told me that if what he said was a problem then I should tell them not to wear low cut shirts, and that I should face the dish washing sink away from customers. But since he apologized, he should be allowed to drink in my establishment because he lives in the neighborhood and will bring in business l told him flatly that wasn't happening, and that what he said to those ladies was incredibly offensive. The simple fact that he couldn't understand that just because they were were working didn't mean they deserve his disrespectful language. That these ladies were part of my family, and were human beings that deserved respect. They aren't objects, and they certainly shouldn't have to wear different clothes because he can't be bothered with showing them any decency or respect. "But we're men and they're females. Is cleavage just not a thing anymore?" I told him yeah buddy, it's not, and I won't be changing my mind about having him served. He threatened bad publicity, I told him I didn't care and he left. I work in the service industry, and we get the sheer joy and pleasure of meeting and talking to so many great people in our city. I've met some of my best friends here behind the bar. I live for it man. Connecting people who haven't met, making sure people can relax from a shitty day, or celebrate a great one, or just to simply enjoy a few beers with friends. I've seen wedding proposals, birthday parties, political discussions, deep philosophical debates, neighborhood organization, the absolute works The best of humanity coming together and bonding. That's my JAM. It's one of the biggest reasons l get out of bed in the morning to come in to work day after day As absolutely insanely fun as that is, the dark side of this business is we run into some pretty horrible goblin people. Folks who think that just because we're serving, we don't deserve any basic decency or respect. I've been snapped at, mocked, threatened, and insulted about not having a real job. Anybody in this line of work gets used to a degree of it and develops a thicker skin. Here's the thing though, women in this field get infinitely more disgustingly treated. The sheer number of times they get groped, or harassed, or treated like objects would blow your mind. The worst of it is how normal their harassers think their behavior is. Every single lady in here handles it with grace and aplomb, andI applaud them for it. I've had their backs as we've bounced people out for that trash, but countless times they just deal with it before it even gets to me Sometimes the dudes get so worked up that they demand to see a manager, and I get called in to speak with them. Every single fucking time they attempt to appeal to me solely because I'm a man. They try to weasel in with me about how the women are asking for it. That women shouldn't dress that way if they don't want to be stared at. They attempt to explain it away as just "dudes being dudes." It's expected for men to stare at women's breasts and make jokes about how much they want to fuck them. Wink Wink. Of course you'll understand they think, because you also have a dick. What terrifies and enrages me is how every one of them thinks that this is normal behavior, but also that other men will agree with them Men, we often don't see the level of filth that our friends, sisters, and mothers go through every day. We hope to surround ourselves with people who would never treat a woman like that. We live in a safe little bubble. But the reality of this thing? It's an insidious disease that's happening every single day, several times a day and it turns my fucking stomach So why am I writing this? I want to acknowledge the struggle of every single woman who will read this. You deserve our respect and to be treated with decency I want to stand up and say, I'm fucking sick of this To every dude out there, we need to fucking combat this disease like its the god damned plague that it is. If one of your friends says something shitty about a woman, tell him to shut his fucking mouth. Don't just laugh it off or ignore it. We need to listen when our sisters talk about this, and not just blame it on some bad apples. Not just say "not all dudes do that" or "well no one I know would ever do that." Nah man. This is an endemic cultural problem. If we want to start taking our status as gentlemen seriously we need to do more than just avoiding being a sexist prick ourselves. We need to open our eyes and fight it everywhere we see it, because the only way this thing gets better is to start calling it out for what it is Edit: Sorry for so many edits. I keep finding typos. Writing in anger isn't so conducive to well typed responses rcmclachlan: This is what a male feminist looks like.
