The sun you’re greeting this morning is in Virgo. Treat her kind and you’ll be warm for life.
It’s finally happening.

But twitter activism is wack. FOH MR.GLOVER
Even if you don’t live nearby, spread the word so others that do can donate
The nazi-party called “The Swedish Party” was in Malmö, Sweden today (and had a permit from the police, WTF). About 2000 people were there to peacefully let them know that they are not welcome here.
Singing and shouting, the demonstrators were loud, but as peaceful you can be when there are nazis invading our city.
The police respond by running an unarmed, non-threatening person over with a bus.
The police respond by riding over people who did nothing but try to let the nazis know that they are not welcome here. 10-15 cops on horses riding over people, continuously, over and over again.
A nazi tried to pull of a woman’s hijab, hit her, the cops saw but did nothing.
People are lying bloody on the streets, when people come over to help, the cops tell them no.
The cops have blood on their hands, and they are now, after giving the nazis a ride away from there, standing outside the emergency room to “protect people from violent activists”.
To everyone thinking Sweden is an equal country: no, it’s not. Nazis get free rides from the police after they propagate their disgusting message, and innocent people who just wants equality are being run over by the cops.
This is not the first time this happens. In the 20s, Swedish military opened fire into a group of unarmed demonstrators.
Last year, a similar thing to what happened today happened in Stockholm.
This year, at similar demonstrations, cops have been running people over, beating them with batons and arresting people for no good reason.
This spring, on international women’s day, happy demonstrators move from a peaceful and happy demonstration to a party, and on the way, several of them are stabbed by nazis. The police and media call this a “fight between different activists”, while nazis were carrying knives, and feminists were stabbed in the back and beaten up so badly that one of them had to stay in the hospital for months.
Sweden is not equal. Europe is not equal. The US isn’t equal. It isn’t peaceful. It isn’t democratic. They are taking democracy away from us. We can’t let them.

GO THE FUCK OFFFF
Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)
Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.
It is absolutely barbaric that four adult police officers would surround a 71-pound eight-year-old little Indian girl and shoot her in the chest with 50,000 volts of electricity.
Self-Defense is Murder When You’re A TWOC. Eisha Love, a Trans-Woman, sits in Cook County Jail, Division 9, and there she awaits trial. Why? Because…
This is a bullshit charge. She was defending herself. This has to stop.
In addition to signing the petition, you can write to Eisha. She needs support right now.
Bottom to top: Go Fund Me, after thousands of complaints, only removed racist, anti Black comments from the “support Darren Wilson” page, actually making things WORSE by erasing evidence and claiming to give a fuck.
They cut a percentage of the profits so it doesn’t surprise me that they don’t want to take it down, but why bother claiming to be anything but completely disingenuous? Why not just not respond instead of pretending this helps at all?
By removing the racist, disgusting comments but NOT removing the campaign donations or the campaign itself, it is clear what their motivations are and were their allegiances lie.
(Let’s not forget the troves of shit eaters jacking off to all of this on 4chan and elsewhere, who are gleefully enjoying all of this, I hope they all drink bleach.)
the thing to support michael brown’s family is on there, but i think it’s considered an acceptable exception to the boycott
it has been, yep, after that one though…
