This a great recap of just how terrible Gov. Corbett is doing. Job losses, students struggling with higher costs, and local school taxes are up. But what is Corbett focused on? Privatizing public schools.
Just in case any of my fellow Pittsburgh/Pennsylvania residents weren’t aware.
Let's talk about how I'm a nihilist and I don't understand people who aren't
I’m watching House, the episode with the magic death kitty, and the woman who they think has Cushings was talking to Chase. She said, “If there isn’t [a reason I got sick] one, if there’s no greater purpose in the world, it’s not a world I want to live in.” I literally exclaimed, out loud, “Wow, you’re pathetic!” You need there to be some greater purpose in the world to deal with living? Really? Why? What inspires this seemingly abject fear of meaninglessness?
Debating whether or not I want to conclude that no one in this state who wants to have sex with me is going to get on facebook any time soon. If I decide to, I’ll take off my faerie wings. If I decide not to, I’ll have an internal debate about whether or not I want to take off my faerie wings. Someone should really just come cuddle with me.
Because—- a. It’s what society tells them to do! b. one assumes sex to mean love c. the thought has never crossed their mind d. the concept of sharing bothers them e. its adultery and lustful, thus a SIN!!!!
Given the situation that occurred yesterday at Occupy Oakland, my sister and I made an agreement that we would find a way to get down to Occupy Louisville and have our voices as Americans be heard.
My ex (who is in the US Army) sent me this message via facebook and I think it would be a great help for everyone in the event of heinous riot acts by the police.
I support your right as an American to gather and to have your voice heard, just make sure your doing things legal so the police have no reason to brutalize you.
but here are a few helpful tips in case you happen to be targeted anyway.
bring milk - it can be used to wash out mace from your eyes and shortens the duration of the burn.
if pepper spray is burning your skin use a solution of 1 part chlorine bleach to 5 parts water. DO NOT USE FOR EYES.
bring a hospital mask and vinegar(apple cider vinegar or lemon juice) - douse the mask with it and breathe through it. It helps cancel out riot gas, although you may have to re douse it occasionally.
swim goggles with a tight seal can help protect the eyes.
bring a solution of water and 5% sodium bisulfate to decontaminate yourself from tear gas.
wear clothing that clover as much of your body as possible and sinch the cuffs closed. if you find yourself in tear gas your first instinct will to be to panic. you will cough, throw up, have burning vision, and possibly a 3 foot trail of snot gushing out your nose. Do Not Run, as you cannot see and will most likley run into something big and painful.
Breathing will be labored. the effects usually last 7 - 15 minutes. If you have a respiratory problem bring your meds/inhalers. do not touch your face or any other part of your body as the roit agent will spread. bring an extra change of clothes to change into. tear gas crystallizes so it will be in your clothes until washed.
Just some helpful tips from some one who has to go into a tear gas chamber every year. Be safe.
We are Americans and we are strong, we are also backed by the UDHR that the United Nations abides by.
Stay safe. Stay strong. Even if we don’t know each other, I love you all.
Just felt this would be helpful information for everyone everywhere.
