A lone immigrant soldier was killed. He has no family here. His unit was unable to attend his funeral because they are currently still completing their operation. The news got out that this brave young man who risked his life for our safety had no one to mourn him. The word spread from person to person, from twitter to whatsapp and so forth. Tonight at Sean Carmeli’s funeral there were over 20,000 people. They had never met him yet they owed him everything. We have no lone soldiers, they are all ours. 

I am proud to live in a society that leaves no one behind.

How Jobs Work

  • (Scenario 1)
  • Employer: I have this job available that requires a specific amount of experience and skill. It pays $X per hour.
  • You: I would like a job and I fit the qualifications. However, $X per hour is not enough.
  • Employer: I have another job available, but it requires experience and skill that you don't have, according to your resume. If you take the first job, you can get the experience you need to be promoted to the second job where you will get paid more.
  • You: I can either look for another employer who pays more for my skills and experience, or I can take this job and make do with less until I qualify for the better job. I get to make that choice!
  • (Scenario 2)
  • Employer: I have this job available that requires a specific amount of experience and skill. It pays $X per hour.
  • You: I would like a job and I fit the qualifications. Sure, I'd like to make more than that, but until I get more experience I can make do with this.
  • Government: Stop right there! Employer, you aren't paying this poor worker enough.
  • You: But I'm fine working for--
  • Government: Hush, I know what you need. Employer, pay $Y per hour!
  • Employer: At $Y per hour, I can only hire half as many employees. This "poor worker" won't get a job, since I can't hire anyone new and will have to fire people who are currently working.
  • You: Thanks, Government.
  • Government: You're welcome, citizen!

To be honest I don’t have the strength or the energy to debate with these people

jewishpolitics:

What’s the point of presenting facts if they ignore them anyway. I just don’t have the strength, its like talking to a wall.

For those of you who have asked me questions I will answer you as soon as I can.
I’m particularly excited about one question and until I have access to a computer I will not be able to adequately provide sources to explain my opinion.
As soon as I can get to a working computer instead of my phone and tablet I will answer your questions.

This woman is an elected official. This statement should scare the shit out of everyone.

For some reason people keep voting for her. This woman is a treasonous pile of shit and her heart attack can’t come soon enough. Sorry not sorry, she is the worst.

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.

    

^

My partner’s ex wife was abusive to him as well, to the point where he’s still very damaged from it to this day.

She used to encourage her children to attack him with weapons, he had to wear a motorcycle jacket with plating in it to keep from getting stabbed when he was just walking through the house. Whenever her and him would get into an argument, she’d call the cops and have him hauled off to jail when he never even touched her. Then she’d drop all charges, have him come home, and do it all over again.

She had restraining orders against him at least on three different occasions, and would then invite him back to the house and then call the cops on him again.

The police? Never even questioned the fact that she was calling them all the time with nary a bruise to be found. Her and her children stole everything he had from him, when they finally divorced she took all his things outside and burned them in a fire pit.

This shit happens, whether some feminists want to pretend it does or not.

This. This is why I don’t support feminism.

Best line of the whole series right there in season one

That entire episode should be mandatory viewing for sjws about how ridiculous they are.
