I’m sorry, but if lesbians can control themselves in a girls only changing room with ass naked woman waltzing around. Then I figure men should be able to control them selves with clothed girls walking down the street. Just a thought.

The protests in Ferguson, Missouri, this month presented a dilemma for the anti-government Right. The activists and elected officials who spent the spring fawning over lawless Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s stand against what they saw as an overbearing federal government changed their tune or just went silent when a police force armed with military weapons cracked down on mostly peaceful protesters in Ferguson.

Why Fight For Unions? So We Can Fight An Economy Rigged Against Us

[T]he rules set down by our democracy can’t be enforced unless We the People can organize to be powerful enough to overcome the great wealth and power of a few ultra-billionaires and their corporations. Without the ability to organize, we are on our own as individuals against great wealth and power.

This is where labor unions come in. Working people organizing into a group so they are not fighting this power alone as individuals gives them a chance to demand a slice of the pie.

Campaign for America’s Future has released a report, “Inequality: Rebuilding the Middle Class Requires Reviving Strong Unions.” The introduction explains that, “Government policy helped strengthen the hand of workers and build the middle class coming out of World War II, and today government must once more become an ally of working people. The effort to make that happen will meet fierce resistance, but the report shows that the first steps have begun.”

Heartbreaking Video Captures Religious Parents Violently [Assaulting] Son After He Comes Out

On Wednesday, a video of a young man named Daniel Pierce made waves after being posted to the Reddit community /r/gaybros. The video, brought to Reddit’s attention by Pierce’s boyfriend, showed the teenager being confronted by his religious family members over his sexual orientation — then being verbally and physically attacked by them.

It’s a heartbreaking, and at times very difficult to watch.

"This family gave a young man two options: attend a pray the gay away intervention, or face being disowned by the very people who are supposed to love him unconditionally," Regina Ryan, a friend of Pierce’s, wrote in the video’s description.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for Daniel, who was not only thrown out of his house and disowned, but robbed of his college text books and other possessions by his parents.

This map makes me think of two things initially… 1) Why is the Northwest poo-pooed as being such a dark, dreary place when Norway, Sweden, and Finland get less light but are considered “happy” places… and 2) why is Germany kicking ass with solar power when we receive so much more sunlight; shouldn’t we be kicking everyone’s as in solar power production?
