Hitting 40 hours awake. I actually tried sleeping yesterday, but it was just me lying in bed awake from about 8am until 10:30 last night before giving up and heading back out to the front room. Still not tired. Wonder how long I’ll be awake this time?
I AM FUCKING DEAD. SO I WAS HAVING TROUBLE DOWNLOADING THE SIMS 2 THING THAT’S BEEN GOING AROUND SO I CONTACTED THEIR LIVE CHAT SUPPORT FOR HELP. WELL THE PERSON WANTED MY INFO AND FOR ME TO ANSWER THE SECURITY QUESTION I SET UP SO THEY COULD PUT THE GAME IN MY COLLECTION.
THE QUESTION WAS “What was your dream job as a kid?”
GUESS WHO HAD TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION TO A LIVE PERSON WITH “Doing your mom.”. SPOILET ALERT IT WAS FUCKING ME.
Sometimes I wonder how many people on tumblr think that cops sit at their desks waiting for a change.org petition to tell them who they should arrest.
"Danielle Susan Ruger", set this tortoise on fire and then threw him all over the street.
I don’t have much information on it, but that one of her friend’s on Facebook saved this horrendous video to his phone before she deleted off of Facebook. Apparently, she’s from/located in Orange Park.
Please, if you can in any way, report this person right away!
She needs to pay for torturing this poor animal now.
SIGNAL BOOST NOW
OMFG THIS BITCH LIVES IN MY CITY? FUCK THIS. How old is this post?! All I can think about is what happened to the poor baby after this shit. jeesus this person needs to be locked up, least of things. Is that a bowl of water in the first photo!? Then set on fire!? FUCK my night.
To my understanding, this all happened yesterday.
Her and her friend attend Ridgeview high school.
Please report “Danielle Susan Ruger” and “Faith Hope”!
This will no be over with till they pay for what they did to that poor animal, I assure you of that.
As soon as I figure out where to report them. I will.
ruin their fucking lives. theres a petition if you google danielle’s full name.
They’re already being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the State Attorney’s office (be warned - that link contains graphic descriptions and video). Here’s a statement that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued a little over a week ago:
“We have received multiple complaints about the videos posted to Facebook last evening showing the killing of a small gopher tortoise. Our officers are investigating the case and are presently working with the State Attorney’s Office to determine what charges may be filed. Please keep alerting us with your tips.”
If you ever run into something like this, the Humane Society has instructions on how to report it to the proper authorities in your area. It works a lot faster than relying on reblogs and a petition to magically land them in front of a judge.
Hoping to get this boosted, because maybe it can save someone from hard times and get them a job at whatever establishment this racist ass manager is at.
(this was on NYT FB article posting about a (Black) mother Google searching her unborn child’s name to see what connotations and future it could hold for him)
And then you have people justifying this action. But a meritocracy exists right?
But I don’t even know how to pronounce his last name…..
Someone find out where he works so we can can e-mail his Boss and get him fired cause almost every company has a non discrimination policy
Right fuck this
The original version of this post is from ten months ago, so I’m thinking the guy has hidden his pertinent info by now (I may have found him on Facebook, but can’t be sure it’s him so I’m not going to link it — if it’s him, he’s hiding his employer anyway).
But if you see something like this, yes, try to find out where they work if they’re dumb enough to list it when making a comment like this. But don’t contact their boss, because their boss may very well support the discrimination. Instead, send a link to (and a screenshot of) the post straight to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, along with any other pertinent information (like where they work). This is exactly why the EEOC exists, and I doubt that an investigation into these comments would likely be good for Mr. Moskowitz’s career if the employer has any interest at all in protecting their company.
It doesn’t matter whether the company has a nondiscrimination policy or not. If they hire people in the United States of America, it’s covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, or sex — whether the employer (or hiring manager) like it or not.
I’m no legal expert or anything, and I’ve never dealt with the EEOC so I can’t walk you through the process or promise you that you won’t just end up frustrated and angry — for all I know, they’ll say that since you didn’t personally apply to this business, then you don’t have a standing to file a claim against them. This is just what I would do.
Wait this six Californias thing is real?
I was just going to reply, but I can’t fit all the info into a reply.
Assuming that all of the signatures turned in (or at least 807,615 of them, the number needed to get the measure on the ballot) are verified, then it would be on the 2016 ballot.
It has momentum this time around, but a lot of people aren’t to thrilled with the idea.
But even if the measure passes, it’s still a long shot to actually happen. Article IV, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution says “no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.”
So even if California voters say “Yes, this is a thing that we think should happen,” the California legislature would have to approve it. There’s a tiny chance that could actually happen.
And after that, the U.S. Congress would have to approve it. And there’s pretty much zero chance that this would happen, because each of the six states that used to make up California would be constitutionally entitled to 2 Senators. There’s also the matter of changing around the representation in the House of Representatives, but that likely wouldn’t shift the number of total seats held by The States Formerly Known as California because those are based on population.
But to give what is now California 10 additional Senate seats? I don’t see that happening.
I bet flag makers would love it, though. Think of how many 55-star flags they’d be selling! Every public building, every classroom, every sports stadium, every unit of every branch of the military, they’d all need new flags. So it would be a good time to hold stock in a flag manufacturer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Tim Draper (the guy behind the measure) has already bought flag stock to go with the $19 million worth of bitcoins he just bought.
And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.
Don’t get me started.
Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.
USA, the world’s #1 killing machine.
Color me not surprised.
