someone so hot but still a dork
I think most nostalgia for the good old days basically boils down to someone going like “remember when only rich white people could do this? Boy those were some good times”
Are you referring to when teenage white girls yearn and romanticize the 1940s-1960s? How they’re always like “I wish I was born in…Those times were SO SIMPLE.” Like bitch of course those times were simple for your little basic white ass! Meanwhile every black and poc was segregated, being murdered for the color of our skin (that’s right we were killed just for being black), were denied basic human rights, etc. But white women wore pretty dresses and cute hair styles so that makes up for the genocidal tendencies of their ancestors. *rolls eyes*
Finally found time to respond.:p I was tagged by thewintersupersoldier . (^c^)
I couldn’t upload a screen shot,so I’m using a background pic I found online. I liked the howling commandos in Cap 1 and really wished they got more screen time.
I tag lokisgirl96 lovetakeshostages@diajones1985 whats this ? lol
It’s one of those tag a friend things. You’re suppost to upload a screen shot of the background of your phone/tablet/computer. I don’t have screen shot on my tablet, so I just uploaded a picture of my background.

Well, here’s the deal, anon. The Salvation Army is an evangelical Christian group, and they impose those beliefs on the people that they employ and the communities they serve. Here are a few examples:
They are so opposed to LGBT rights that they have lobbied multiple times for exemptions from Federal and Local anti-discrimination laws, and threatened to withdraw their services.
They refused to provide shelter to a homeless gay couple, unless they broke up and renounced their homosexuality.
They refused to provide a transgender woman with shelter that was congruent with her gender presentation, instead insisting she house with men. She chose instead to sleep on the sidewalk and died from the cold.
Speaking of gender, there was also this charming incident where one of their hostels refused to open the door for a 17-year-old victim who had just been brutally raped (or even call the police for her) because that particular hostel had a strict “men only” policy.
Children who can’t prove their immigration status are turned away.
The organization also disposes of any Harry Potter or Twilight related donations (rather than giving them to other charities), because they claim the toys are “incompatible with the charity’s Christian beliefs”.
During the Bush Administration (thanks to ‘faith-based initiatives’) they fired about 20 long-time employees (Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Gay), simply for refusing to sign the organization’s statement of Christian belief.
So, that—in a nutshell—is what’s wrong with it.
i will never stop spreading the word about how fucking shady the salvation army is
think twice before you donate to the bell-ringers in your local mall this holiday season … i am planning on starting a dialogue with the ones that are set to station themselves outside the store i work in
also one time i volunteered with the salvation army around christmas time being an “elf” and helping parents pick out free donated toys for their kids
which was all well and good until they ESCORTED TWO MEN OUT OF THE BUILDING BECAUSE THEY “LOOKED GAY”
this was a first-hand eyewitness account and i should have left then and there, but seeing as i needed to take the bus back to school…
And this is why I starting to donate to other charities around Christmas.
No more red buckets for me.
and theres also how in Australia they have teared apart native aboriginal communities to “christianize” them and make them part of capitalist western society, up until the late 60’s they assisted with the taking of aboriginal children from their families in the stolen generation and put the children into missions where they would follow strict pattern of work and christian education
reblogging again because of that whole “but salvation army is changed!!11!!” post circulating because people need to be reminded of the terrible shit they’ve done
Salvation Army is the worst.
When will someone tell them that their actions are unchristian like?

Today, about 200 people marched from the NY Public Library, through the streets of midtown, and ended up at the IDB Bank. IDB is an Israeli Bank that directly funds the occupation of Palestine, 20% owned by the State of Israel. Several activists participated in an act of civil disobedience by throwing fake blood on the windows of IDB, and then staging a sit-in on the sidewalk until they were arrested by police officers.
once upon a time, in Japan…. *white characters*
this takes place in Africa… *white characters*
our story starts in the Middle East… *white characters*
But this is set in EUROPE, we mUST HAVE ALL WHITE CAST!!! hisTORICAL accURACY!!!!
This show takes place in CANADA, so no woc can be cast (even though Toronto has a huge Chinese, Carribean, and international population)! If one is “on the show” they must kill her off within 5 minutes of screen time. It makes perfect sense that white women runs around town shooting and killing people (those woc mentioned earlier) without facing any prison time. *Holy smokes, when one realizes that their sarcasm is realism. White people DO go around killing poc without facing prison time.*
- straight couple: *make out in public at random intervals in weird places*
- straight couple: *grabs each other's asses in public*
- straight couple: *are not in any way inconspicuous about the fact that they are feeling each other up in public*
- gay couple: *holds hands in public*
- straight people: that is VILE and it is CORRUPTING my entire FAMILY. my grandmother is crying. my children have all shit their pants at the same time. WHO WILL THINK OF THE CHILDREN
The world’s 85 richest people have as much wealth as the world’s 3.5 billion poorest.
This statistic was recently released in United Nations report that uses Oxfam figures. It’s also a huge wake-up call for anyone who doesn’t consider income inequality a major issue in global politics. (via micdotcom)
We know how most of them got this money and it wasn’t from their “hard work”. Many of these people got rich because of the exploitation of those 3.5 billion poor people.
