"Before making decisions, ask yourself: Is this beneficial to myself and the globe long term? Is this a short sighted quick fix that only further delays getting to the end goal?

I think of the military and police as professional bullies. The only thing they serve and protect these days is the oppressive, destructive and ego-driven powers that be.

How an 11-year-old girl helped McDonald’s stop gender stereotyping

A Connecticut teenager has forced McDonalds to finally address the casual sexism that has long been a part of Happy Meals.

This impressive narrative comes courtesy of Antonia Ayres-Brown, who first approached the fast food chain five years ago when she was barely a tween. She wanted to know why the chain automatically assumes a girl will want a doll-type toy while a boy will want something more stereotypically masculine, like an action hero. In December, she finally received an answer — from the chain’s corporate office, no less.

It always surprises me how researching a topic and questioning everything isn’t just common instinct. Or is it and do most people have it beaten out of them along their path of indoctrination?

I think it is really funny when people say something is unnatural. Everything is natural! Everything derives from nature.

Well This Weirdness Is Now a Thing… http://ift.tt/1jNpgl2

This was given to 6th graders at Milam elementary in Tupelo, MS. It is the 6th grade school. They were told to not speak about it outside of class and to not take it home. She snuck it home because she knew her parents would want to see it.
Common core strikes again.

Good grief.
Any veterans want to weigh in on benefits being received under the current administration versus the last one?

They suck. It’s like getting water from paper. The wait times are ridiculous.

Can we talk about the fact that the last question asks if you think Flag Burning is acceptable? 
Democrat or Republican, you should never be okay with anyone burning the American flag. And if you are, get the fuck out of my country.

There is fear behind a lie

unconditionedconsciousness:

Be compassionate to fear.  Cultivate the perfect loving space where ‘there is nothing to fear’ isn’t just a comforting sentence, but a deep realization. 

There is nothing to fear.  Really.
