My name's Dakota and I'm from Tucson. This blog has devolved into mostly a picture blog with occasional news stories. Cool beans.

Just because those men have turbans on they’re the enemy? Just because they have dark skin? Beards?
Reagan met with the Mujaheddin. The fighters who were at war against the invading Soviets. The enemy of my enemy. If that’s too complicated of a concept I’ll be more than happy to explain the cold war and the usage of proxy wars. 
Let’s set the timeline straight. 
Reagan meets with Mujaheddin 1983 (Pictured above)
Soviets withdraw from Afghanistan in 1989
The Taliban doesn’t even become an active militia until 1994
The Taliban doesn’t take primary control of Afghanistan until 1996 (13 years after the photo above)
During the rise of the Taliban the US backs the Northern Alliance, a Islamic Democratic group dedicated to fighting against the totalitarian Taliban.
So let’s review.
You’re racist.
You don’t understand history.
You clearly took a photo out of context

Just because those men have turbans on they’re the enemy? Just because they have dark skin? Beards?

Reagan met with the Mujaheddin. The fighters who were at war against the invading Soviets. The enemy of my enemy. If that’s too complicated of a concept I’ll be more than happy to explain the cold war and the usage of proxy wars. 

Let’s set the timeline straight. 

  • Reagan meets with Mujaheddin 1983 (Pictured above)
  • Soviets withdraw from Afghanistan in 1989
  • The Taliban doesn’t even become an active militia until 1994
  • The Taliban doesn’t take primary control of Afghanistan until 1996 (13 years after the photo above)
  • During the rise of the Taliban the US backs the Northern Alliance, a Islamic Democratic group dedicated to fighting against the totalitarian Taliban.

So let’s review.

  1. You’re racist.
  2. You don’t understand history.
  3. You clearly took a photo out of context

Boy of nine killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school. He was told by other pupils ‘all white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.

Don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.

And this was in the UK. He and his family are in their own country, their own homeland.

Repeat after me: ALL RACISM IS BAD. RACISM AGAINST ANYBODY IS BAD. PERIOD.

i will always reblog this because this is fucking important

I’m crying now…

He didn’t understand English ways of doing things.
In this case “English ways of doing things” are “not raping”.
So even they admit their culture is incompatible with ours. When I say it, Liberals say I’m “racist”. So what do they say to him?
Talk about a “rape culture”.

McDonald's orders 7,000 touchscreen kiosks to replace cashiers - Neowin →

gop-tea-pub:

And here ya go you idiot Libtards. Exactly what we at the Tea Party warned you about.
So you want to raise the minimum at fast food restaurants huh? Well, kiss you ass goodbye then.
Let’s just examine what this replaces exactly, Shall we? So we just removed another whiny teenager with a machine. We do not have to pay them minimum wage, we do not have have to give them insurance, we do not have to pay unemployment insurance for them, we do not have them here as a liability to the company, we do not have to process checks for them, we do not have to train them…shall I go on? A minimum wage worker costs a company a lot more than just their pay. When are you thickheaded Libtards going to figure that out?
Doesn’t matter now though, you will be replaced, and replaced more often. So complain some more..go ahead. Companies will find a way to eliminate you. Companies do not hire you for you. They hire you for them. They hire you to turn profits for them. It’s called capitalism. For every one of you idiots that demands more money, there is another teen out there willing to work for your current wage. McDonald’s has a 60% employee turnover rate…and guess what? They stay in business, because someone is always willing to work there. So grow up, get a life, pick a degree in college that is actually viable in the real world, or learn a skill that doesn’t demand a degree. Tons of skilled jobs make more money annually, than jobs requiring a degree. It is up TO YOU to make a living, not an employer’s job.

For the record, I am a fiber optic technician. I run a fiber route. I install equipment, I turn it up, I test it and I maintain it. I have generators at sites I have to keep up with. I have dark fiber reports I have to make. I have splices to test. I have new customers to turn up. I have a route to inspect that encompasses about 500 miles. I learned how to use an OTDR (optical time-domain reflectometer) with on the job training, I learned to use an OSA (optical spectrum analyzer), a light meter, a Chromatic Dispersion Test Set…all without a degree. I have worked in the telecom field for over 30 years now. I started out as a contractor, installing equipment, traveling all over the US (41 states). I had zero experience when I started. Minimum wage was $3.35 an hour then. They started me at a whole $7.50 an hour. In about 10 years time I was making over 20 bucks an hour as a contractor. By the time I decided I had enough of living in hotels, driving thousands of miles (I drove over 2 million miles in 25 years) I was making 38 bucks an hour. My now permanent job pays less than that, but now I have insurance, a company truck, they pay for gas, expenses and my home is now my office. I am on call 24/7 for two weeks and off call for 2 weeks. I pretty much get to work what hours I want as long as I work 40 hours a week. I am up at 3:30AM, on the clock by 4AM and work until noon. Sometimes I have to work over 24 hours straight. I have worked as long as 38 hours straight. Depending on how much overtime I get, I make between 52 and 72 grand a year. 
It’s called hard work. It’s called paying your dues. I did not whine. What I did and still do is called WORK. I do not own a single credit card or a debit card. I pay cash for what I want. If I can’t afford it, I don’t buy it. My truck is a 1994 Silverado with only 152,000 miles on it. It just sits there. It had 90K on it when I bought it 10 years ago. I paid cash for it. I own it..it’s mine…not the bank’s. I paid cash for my motorcycle. I own it..it’s mine..not the bank’s. The only people I owe anything are my landlord and bills.  I got raises the old fashioned way….I EARNED THEM. I WORKED FOR THEM. I IMPRESSED PEOPLE. I SHOWED I COULD LEARN. I SHOWED I WAS WILLING TO WORK. I MADE MYSELF WORTH A EVERY RAISE I GOT.
It’s not complicated. It’s called a job for a reason. Pay raises don’t come to the lazy or to the whiners. They come by proving you are worth something to someone.


So whine all ya like. If you can’t prove you are better than a machine, then it is no ones fault but yours. PERIOD. You do not deserve a raise for being a whiner. If you want one, then you dame well better get out there and earn it. 

Real talk. I went and got a job as a machinist with minimal community college classes. I now make $14 an hour as a part timer to pay for engineering classes. Going into a trade isn’t so bad.

Our President is an unapologetic bold faced liar.

This needs to have 500% more notes.

OMG…now he’s lying about lying. 

He’s just an awful man.

only one more fucking year until we get to listen to someone else’s lies

One year? Where do you get that number from? We have 3 more years of this asshat..not one.

All you just sound like angry republicans. It’s congress, not him.

I checked not once, not twice but thrice and didn’t see Congress in any of those gifs above.  So, I checked on this thing called “Google,” which you may or may not have heard of, and typed in the quotes above as well.  Turns out, Obama did actually say all those things, not anyone in Congress.  Just to make sure however, I decided I wanted to hear him say this stuff just to be sure, so I checked Youtube and found this:

So, I guess Obama did say all those things; not Congress. Now, you have no excuse to be an ignorant sympathizer for this liar because I just did all the work for you.  Thank me.

Okay, I am awfully confused. You guys are all hating on Obama, saying he lied - which he did, however it is for our safety. If the health insurance changed, making you pay more for the same plan or paying the same for less coverage. By doing this the government is trying to save it’s people from fraud.

And it’s not like you have to sign up for Affordable Care Act - you can find other health insurance companies. The reason Affordable Care Act started was to protect people from the oligopoly of all the heath care providers in the US while granting the hundreds of families without insurance some stability.

What’s quoted above in the last gif is the beginning of a quote. It’s like getting told there’s free ice cream at lunch today and then not sticking around to hear you need to clean up the gym in order to get it. There is more after it - you need to go watch his full answer before throwing him under the bus.

You guys are all hating on Obama, saying he lied - which he did, however it is for our safety.

Aside from all your absurd sympathizing points you just threw out there, if you wanted to correct an oligopoly of insurance markets like you stated, then one of the easiest ways to do that would be what the Republicans have been proposing for decades, which is to open up insurance sales across state lines.  

Instead we get this monstrosity of a plan that the President of the United States actually has to lie to us about “for our own safety” to essentially “save [us] from fraud.” Are you kidding me?  This whole bill is a fraud.  You however are one of the only few blockheads left out there that are actually still buying into this.  Oh, and if you look at the video right above your post you can watch the entire series of full quotes.

Do us all a favor and just stay out of politics, your blind allegiance to a leader who you openly accept deceit from for is beyond pathetic.
