Shout Out, Shout Out, Shout Out For America
With President Trump's Impeachment Trial in just its first day, it is so very clear that we, as a nation, need to shout out for a fair trial - a trial with documents and witnesses. It is time to be heard. Write or call your Senators and let them know how important it is to stand up for the rule of law, to stand up against abuse of power, to shout out for our democracy. Be sure to register and vote this coming 2020 election to make America normal again.

We often hear tone deaf people ask, “do you really think some people in this country are privileged?” This is a video of HEAVILY armed white males who surrounded the state capitol today (on MLK day) AND NOT ONE WAS SHOT!!!!!! We’ve seen black people get shot for yelling, parking, having their hands in the air, and laying on the ground while submitting. If black men had gathered like this, they would be labeled a GANG and shot on the spot! The only way we can heal this as a nation is to acknowledge the imbalance and hold EVERYONE accountable in having one standard for humanity and civil rights. Until that happens we will forever have inequality, injustice and unrest! It’s amazing to see people who AREN’T being killed and threatened with bodily harm being the most aggressive and threatening. Truly amazing, hypocritical and dangerous! #America#ThisisAmerica#HomeoftheLies#Racism#Capitialism#BehindtheVeil#BareArms#Democracy#Politics#WhiteMen#WhitePrivilege
Today’s feature: “Everybody agrees we’re not going to put every corrupt person in handcuffs tomorrow, because if we did that we wouldn’t have anybody left to work,” said Ou Virak, founder and president of Future Forum. For the conclusion to our eight-part Future Forum series, we sat down with Ou Virak and talked about Cambodia’s fate. In the decades to come, does he believe that the Kingdom will successfully address the pressing issues raised in the project?
The Civic Life Project inspires high school and college students to learn about civics and to actively participate in the democratic process through documentary film making. This week they are honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King by calling on America’s youth to raise their voices and share how they are taking political and civic action now to keep his dream alive. Young activists and filmmakers can create and submit a short film on an issue of their choice with a chance to win up to $5,000! Submit by January 31st to have the entry fee waived.

In 2014, less than 20 % of young people voted, the lowest rate ever, compared with roughly 40 % of the overall population,as stated by the United States census. With our campaign we’ll be motivating and encouraging the youth controlled vote and stand out for those who can’t . @nycyouth#elitevoters#ourvoices#democracy
Hey there, whatcha up to? I’m just over here, drawing pictures of my crush, Bernie Sanders. Also practicing writing my signature with his last name. You know, with gel pens and tiny hearts.
Seriously though. I know political fatigue is strong right now. It’s hard to stay sensitive and responsive in a rigged economy where the system is designed to benefit an unbelievably wealthy minority, where news is entertainment and therefore meant to agitate and polarize, and when it’s just easier to numb than address the feeling that everything’s fucked, and so why bother? .
I feel it too. And I’m furious! .
Healthcare is a human right.
Education is a human right.
Student debt is insane.
Of course the ultra-fucking-un-freakin-believably wealthy should be taxed higher.
Our criminal justice system is broken.
I can’t believe we’re still debating this but climate change is real and we need the New Green Deal.
Bernie Sanders is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate who has spent decades fighting for you and me. He demands more, and does not answer to corporations and billionaires, but to the massive majority of everyday Americans, people who are struggling. He reminds us that this country does, actually, belong to US. And we deserve better. But in a capitalist country where the ultra-wealthy can shower lobbyists and money at our civil representatives, our voices get lost. And unfortunately, sometimes I feel this is the new normal: that I have no voice, therefore I don’t matter.
Fuck that noise!
I matter. You matter. We still have our voices, but we need to use them. It’s hard when we’re out of practice, I know.
In 2016 I caucused for the first time, for Bernie. My first political donations were for Bernie. My first rally. His stances are clear, and align with mine, and I share that vision of a not-so-distant America where we are part of a thriving democracy, where we meaningfully show how much we value our immigrants, women, LGBTQ+, homeless, veterans, teachers, students, and lower and middle class citizens. I value you. You deserve so much more. And I will fight for you. #berniesanders2020#berniesanders#democraticsocialist#healthcareisahumanright#medicareforall

“Humans may crave absolute certainty; they may aspire to it; they may pretend, as partisans of certain religions do, to have attained it. But the history of science — by far the most successful claim to knowledge accessible to humans — teaches that the most we can hope for is successive improvement in our understanding, learning from our mistakes, an asymptotic approach to the Universe, but with the proviso that absolute certainty will always elude us.
