Facts, News, and Pregnant: Robin Marty @robinmarty Reminder - ABORTION IS STILL LEGAL IN ALABAMA. No one has signed the bill yet. It absolutely will NOT be allowed to go into effect unless #SCOTUS overturns Roe. In real world implications, this is no different than a trigger law. You can still get an abortion legally in Alabama 4:23 AM - 15 May 2019 127 Retweets 220 Likes L 127 2 220 Robin Marty @robinmarty DO tell everyone, all the time, that abortion is legal in every state. DONT allow media outlets to misconstrue what is happening even once signed into law, this simply can't go into effect until we hit the end of Roe. And we aren't quite there yet. 4:39 AM 15 May 2019 16 Retweets 28 Likes ti 16 28 1 Robin Marty @robinmarty Finally, the most important thing you can do is spread good information. Abortion is legal. One in four people who can get pregnant will have one. Everyone knows someone, even if they aren't talking about it. It's not dangerous. It's not evil. It's not the government's business 4:43 AM 15 May 2019 31 Retweets 49 Likes ti 31 49 1 mediamattersforamerica: Alabama’s new anti-abortion legislation is a real threat to Roe v. Wade, and the media has a responsibility to cover it accurately and fairly.This means reporting the facts and making clear that abortion is normal, common, and still legal in all 50 states.Media should refrain from reporting on the spectacle and sensationalizing the news. It’s irresponsible and dangerous and prevents folks from seeking the abortion care they need and deserve.

America, Donald Trump, and Energy: The New Yorker @NewYorker When the conversation in a meeting turned to gay rights, Donald Trump motioned toward Mike Pence and joked: nyer.cm/dultLH7 NEW YORKER "Don't ask that guy-he wants to hang them all" -Donald Trump, President of the United States 10/16/17, 11:30 AM 4,333 Retweets 3,677 Likes f1rstperson: weavemama: weavemama: so the president joked about committing genocide towards gay people……NO ONE should excuse a comment like this, america is such a backwards nation and there shouldn’t be any denial about it Proof that he actually said this. ANYONE. WHO. VOTED. FOR. THIS. SHOULD. BE. ASHAMED. “Trump thinks Pence is great,” Bannon told me. But, according to a longtime associate, Trump also likes to “let Pence know who’s boss.” A staff member from Trump’s campaign recalls him mocking Pence’s religiosity. He said that, when people met with Trump after stopping by Pence’s office, Trump would ask them, “Did Mike make you pray?” Two sources also recalled Trump needling Pence about his views on abortion and homosexuality. During a meeting with a legal scholar, Trump belittled Pence’s determination to overturn Roe v. Wade. The legal scholar had said that, if the Supreme Court did so, many states would likely legalize abortion on their own. “You see?” Trump asked Pence. “You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.” When the conversation turned to gay rights, Trump motioned toward Pence and joked, “Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!” Since this is a really long article here’s the part referencing it for anyone who needs that.

America, Facts, and Family: OPERATION RED WINGS JUNE 28, 2005 WILL ALWAYS PLACE THE MISSION FIRST. IWILL NEVER ACCEPT DEFEAT WILL NEVER QUIT. I WILL NEVER LEAVE A FALLEN COMRADE. “On June 28, 2005, four SEALs – Lt. Michael “Murph” Murphy, Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Danny Dietz, Sonar Technician 2nd Class Matthew “Axe” Axelson, and Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell – were carrying out an op to place eyes on known terrorist Ahmad Shah. After positioning themselves amongst the shale of a mountainside in the Hindu Kush east of Asadabad, they were compromised by a trio of supposed goatherders. Deciding it would violate the ROE to kill the three Afghans, the SEALs let them go and immediately moved out. Just a few short hours later, the men were fighting for their lives, and when the proverbial dust settled, only Marcus Luttrell had physically survived.” (excerpt from “The Brotherhood: Remembering the 9th Anniversary of Operation Red Wings”) 12 years may have passed but the pain of those losses remains fresh for the families of the men who died. Some families have worked tirelessly to build a long-term memorial to one or more of the men. marcusluttrell works with a number of charitable organizations but it is his Lone Survivor Foundation that stands out among the others. The LoneSurvivor Foundation is a 501(c)3 that works to help wounded servicemembers and their families heal both physically and mentally. Marcus felt the environment in which he recovered from his own devastating injuries would benefit others, and he uses his foundation to make it happen. Others such as the Axelson family – Matt Axelson was one of the three SEALs killed during the firefight on the ground – strive to help other military families and organizations in various ways while building a business as a constantly-growing tribute to their loved one. Axelson Tactical manufacturers high-quality firearms and although they’re a new company, they’re certainly a promising one. They do it all in Matt’s memory. The sacrifices made on that shale-strewn mountainside in 2005 are important to remember for many reasons. First and foremost is the simple fact that sacrifices such as those made by the men of OperationRedWings are what make America, America. We enjoy more freedoms than any other nation thanks to the blood, sweat, and tears of our military.

Arguing, Bad, and Children: Roe v.Wade was about "population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of." Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg NR <p><a href="http://jaguwar.tumblr.com/post/162095499614/redbloodedamerica-redbloodedamerica-just-like" class="tumblr_blog">jaguwar</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/162086160339/redbloodedamerica-just-like-with-most" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://redbloodedamerica.tumblr.com/post/162085033591/just-like-with-most-environmentalists-many-of-the" class="tumblr_blog">redbloodedamerica</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Just like with most environmentalists, many of the pro-abortion crowd also rest on the absurd premise of overpopulation–or at the very least in its original progressive eugenics mentality.  These people are sick authoritarians set to weed out people from their pedestals upon high.  Progressives have always been the elitists. </p> <p>[<a href="http://www.nationalreview.com/article/448746/planned-parenthoods-brutal-century">Read full article</a>]</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mgYWDoypP5S95yPhgTS6SUA">@dawnofthedead</a> said:</p> <blockquote><p>yes, because it is wrong to not want a population of unwanted children in the world.</p></blockquote> <p>Only horrible people believe children are unwanted and then suggest we should murder them in utero in order to spare them this “unwanted” life. Makes perfect logical sense for completely vapid idiots.</p> <p>Even if children were actually “unwanted”, they themselves still <i>want</i> to live.</p> </blockquote> <p> Actually, (I think?)  you’re missing the point entirely, it’s not about unwanted children, it’s about unwanted NON WHITE children in the first place. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering other racially based statistics (reality, that is, as opposed to “racism”). </p> <p>It doesn’t even have to be all about race, but about “disadvantage”: it’s just that non-white races in this country are more likely to be undereducated, and therefore more likely to be economically disadvantaged. Combine that with a tendency to reproduce (because boredom? A lack of understanding how they can avoid having babies? A lack of understanding of WHY they should? After all, pro-abortion goes hand in hand with more government handouts) and you have a population of people who literally keep everyone else down.<br/></p> <p>You’re right, though, only horrible people would think “unwanted” children don’t, themselves, want to live. But… Nature is metal. The weak (which children are by nature) are culled ALL the time. Metaphysically speaking, one might argue that this is just another way that nature is doing the same.</p> <p>Just saying. </p> </blockquote> <p></p><blockquote><p>it’s not about unwanted children, it’s about unwanted NON WHITE children in the first place.

This is your analogy (hence: analog music). </p> <p>Now, when there’s no sound playing, you run that little tool back over the pattern. This causes the skin to vibrate again, this time in response to the tool running over the pattern instead of because of an external sound. The vibrations should match, proportionally, the original vibrations of the music.. and thus these new vibrations, if you were to amplify them, would be a recreation or “recording” of the original music. </p> <p>That’s oversimplified of course and things have changed a lot since the days of wax, but that is very basically how the process of recording music worked at first, and the general idea of how sound gets from a groove in a record into your brain. </p> </blockquote> <p>(reblogging for Disparition commentary) </p> </blockquote> <p>Thank you Science side of tumblr</p> </blockquote> <p>I hugely appreciate people taking to the time explain stuff like this, as it helps put an end to the “wow, science is magic!” trope that’s become far too common.</p> </blockquote> <p>First of all, science IS magic and you can never convince me otherwise.
