A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
SPEAK UP, STOP BEING SO AFRAID OF YOUR GOVERNMENT. THEY DOT CARE ABOUT US.
This government is run by money and corruption, we can’t expect them to give a shit
Ok. I know it is a post about the corruption in your country, and I will use the opportunity to explain what happens on my country: Brazil.
Have you ever heard that the world cup is going to happen here on Brazil? Brazil is one of the countries that has MORE AND THE MOST EXPANSIVE TAXES. FOR WHAT? WE HAVE PEOPLE DYING IN HOSPITALS BECAUSE OF THE HORRIBLE QUALITY. OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS ALMOST DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TEACHERS, AND THE ONES THAT WE PAY,TO HAVE A BETTER QUALITY OF EDUCATION ARE SO MUCH EXPANSIVE, NOT PRETTY BETTER. Here the gay marriage is allowed right? Yes, but our young kids (most of them, not everyone) are TAUGHT TO BE HOMOPHOEBIC (first-hand experience, my parents say it to my little brother) WHEN THEY SEE AN COUPLE OF TWO BOYS OR GIRLS THE FIRST REACTION IS VIOLENCE. TODAY I WAS WATCHING THE NEWS AND THEY KILLED ANOTHER HOMOSSEXUAL ON THE STREET, IT HAPPENS USUALLY. Prejudgement is commom here. And they teach boys how to like the girls because of their body (Here we have an tropical temperature, we usually wear short summer clothes) here we have “funk”, most of this kind of music talks about it. “Blurred Lines?” Lyrics like this are COMMOM HERE. Brazil is very, very machist. Our commercials? Girls with big butts on bikini serving beer to boys. This is how the media makes you see us, woman. And what happens when we say that we are brazilians in other countries? They call us bitches. Here we have jokes like “What is wrong with the picture? The woman is not on the kitchen” just like in your country. So do the rape culture.
WHERE ARE THE MONEY COLLECTED WITH THE TAXES? Paying our political lux. Make up. The media makes you guys from other countries think here is a perfect place, with soccer, and carnival, and samba and whatever. Oh, and the football stadiums, the pretty, pretty football stadiums. Billions and billions spent with them. And we? WE HAVE AN PATHETIC PUBLIC TRANSPORT, HORRIBLE SECURITY, AND WHEN WE HAD PROTESTS THEY SAID ON THE MEDIA THAT WE WERE VANDALS. THE FEW PEOPLE WHO WANTED OUR RIGHTS WERE LABELED OF VANDALS. AND FLOODS. FLOODS ARE COMMON TOO, AND THE GOVERNMENT DON’T CARE ABOUT US, A LOT OF PEOPLE DIE HERE BECAUSE OF IT.
Just wanted to say, we are not the worst country in the world, we are not the only country with horrible problems. I am 13 years old and I do have a knowledge about what is happening and I wanted to share with you.
Hugging shorter people and resting your head on theirs
Hugging taller people and having your head against their chest
Hugging people your height and pressing your face against their shoulder
Hugging people and getting picked up by them
Not having people to hug
Giving a hug that comes off as weird
