he’s your favourite… Excuse me but are you actually fucking serious
"I call this my ‘Turn a Surplus into a Deficit’ dance. I would show y’all by ‘Invade the Wrong Country’ dance, but Cheney’s still walkin’ me through it."
see, he’s a human being, dare a I say a good person. I disagree with is politics, but I still respect him for being crazy enough to want to be president and try to help this country.
You have a really, really weird definition of the word “help.” I wish it were as simple as I disagree with him politically. But it’s not; he took a massive budget surplus and threw it out the window, handing needless tax breaks to his rich buddies (which did the exact opposite of create jobs), started not one, but two wars (one under false pretenses), advocated torture — and oh yeah, oversaw the largest financial collapse since the Great Depression.
What you call help, I call ruin — and a mess that we’re still cleaning up, in large part because those in this man’s party are too damn petty and racist to actually do anything remotely good for this country.
I’m through being nice and respectful. This man belongs in prison, not shaking his entirely too white ass in another country.
"Sometimes I think if I hadn’t gone four years ago…"
"If you hadn’t gone four years ago, you’d have gone the next year. If not one year after, then two years after. You didn’t belong here. What did I tell you the first day? You have to choose to be here or there."
"Plunder of the south, including Africa, is now taking place under new names, such as ‘aid’ or ‘free trade’ or even ‘development’. About $220 billion were transferred from the Third World to commercial banks in the West during the period 1986-92. What the World Bank calls structural adjustment is potential economic genocide. Its essence is to raise prices in the so-called developing countries to world levels — yet average earnings in the South are seventy times lower than in the North. ‘Free trade’ means an expanding world market for the multinational corporations. it means breaking down customs, subsidies, tariffs, quotas, ending cheap adaptations of patents — breaking everything that protects the weaker. It means protection when necessary for the stronger. Witness the wrangles between the USA and Europe or Japan over ‘free trade’. Double standards have always been used to defend privilege."
"Allah has created angels having reason but with no desires, animals having desires and no reason, and man with both reason and desires. Therefore, if one’s reason is stronger than his desires, he is like an angel. On the other hand, if his desires are stronger, he is like an animal."
"The myth that “beauty is power” is actually super destructive because it tricks young women into thinking that if men want them, they will be empowered, which is, alas, not true. Because the kind of “power” that comes from having men lust after you is fleeting and holds no real weight in the grand scheme of things. It might make you feel good momentarily, until you realize that men don’t respect you because they like your boobs, nor will your fuckability bring things like political power and freedom from male violence. As long as women are seen as (and see themselves as) pretty, sexy objects, they will continue to to be viewed and treated, primarily, as sex-holes for men (i.e. not full human beings but the kind of beings who were invented for men to use and abuse and play with and then discard when they get bored)."
Omar (2013) was Palestine’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars and finished as one of the five finalists.
“All the heads of the departments were Palestinians. Not all of them had experience but we all worked so hard to make a quality movie, and I think we proved we can do a high quality movie without the money or talent of the West. If I’m proud of anything it’s that this film was made by Palestinians with Palestinian money. I’m really proud of that. The non-Palestinians had no influence on the artistic quality or the quality of the movie.” — Hany Abu-Assad, Director
“We have to take ownership of our own talent,” added Waleed Zuaiter, one of the leading actors.
The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Jury Prize, and was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.
"Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now."
