The number of people in Colombia killed by U.S. tobacco is way beyond the number of Americans killed by Colombian cocaine… Okay, do they have a right to come to the United States and carry out chemical warfare in North Carolina and Kentucky because they have a tobacco problem and it’s coming from here? You can’t even speak the words it’s so outlandish.
Vegan Taco Bell Round Up

It may seem like small potatoes, but a mid-sized rancher is getting a militant hand from militia groups around the country who say that the Federal Gov is infringing on his right to put his cows out to pasture on public lands.
Cliven Bundy, the owner of the ranch, is having his cows rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management, because he continues to allow them…
"Even saw the lights if the Goodyear Blimp and it read Spartacus is a pimp" Our newest design was inspired by Fabian’s dominance of cobbled classics mixed w/ a classic 90 rap song. It came to me after a post RVV ride in Flanders and talking 90s Rap. available now at hbstache.com
This actually is a technique my therapist taught us last week in my depression CBT group.

Chocolate pretzel peanut butter / Recipe
The raven is sometimes known as “the wolf-bird.” Ravens, like many other animals, scavenge at wolf kills, but there’s more to it than that.
Both wolves and ravens have the ability to form social attachments and they seem to have evolved over many years to form these attachments with each other, to both species’ benefit.
There are a couple of theories as to why wolves and ravens end up at the same carcasses. One is that because ravens can fly, they are better at finding carcasses than wolves are. But they can’t get to the food once they get there, because they can’t open up the carcass. So they’ll make a lot of noise, and then wolves will come and use their sharp teeth and strong jaws to make the food accessible not just to themselves, but also to the ravens.
Ravens have also been observed circling a sick elk or moose and calling out, possibly alerting wolves to an easy kill. The other theory is that ravens respond to the howls of wolves preparing to hunt (and, for that matter, to human hunters shooting guns). They find out where the wolves are going and following. Both theories may be correct.
Wolves and ravens also play. A raven will sneak up behind a wolf and yank its tail and the wolf will play back. Ravens sometimes respond to wolf howls with calls of their own, resulting in a concert of howls and calls.

Fact: 5.3 million African American men are denied the right to vote based on a past felony conviction.
That means more than 13% of the general African American population (39 mil) and 28% of the male African American population (18.5 mil) are prohibited from voting.
Felony Disenfranchisement is highest in the former slave states and states with a history of civil rights violations like Florida and North Carolina. Today’s red states—particularly in the bible belt—where the Republican voting base is strongest, appear to have vested racist and political interests in permanently separating Black people from their right to vote.
This link provides information on each state’s voting laws for those with a felony record.
When straight men are like “but if I share a locker room with a gay guy he might look at me!”
Okay leaving aside the fact that gay doesn’t mean attracted to you
And gay doesn’t mean “lacking in any sort of human decency or inability to prevent staring”
DOES THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE LOOKING AT YOU IN A SEXUAL WAY, EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE NOT TRYING TO BE SEXUAL, MAKE YOU SLIGHTLY UNCOMFORTABLE MY STRAIGHT MALE FRIEND?
