Guys! Amber Alert! 

Thought I’d share just in case!

The “where can I get my hands on a bondage swing” right under the Amber Alert was a little disconcerting tbh

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

Is it weird to go into retail just for the income?

Is it weird to go into bartending just for the income?

Is it weird to go into nursing just for the income?

Is it weird to go into floral arrangement just for the income?

Is it weird to go into teaching just for the income?

It’s weirder to go into teaching for the income than stripping for the income.

Hahahahaha good point.

Yup, that last one…

I know Tumblr doesn’t care much about poker, but the European Poker Tour Barcelona Super High Roller tournament is down to two players.

One is wearing a shirt that says “Free Palestine” the other “Save Gaza”.

This is good.

I think it’s time we either redefine or clarify our definition of the word “riot.” According to an online dictionary, it’s a situation where a large group of people behave in an uncontrolled way. That’s pretty vague, but okay. Under that definition, the police entities in Ferguson have been rioting for over a week.

Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody.  Not shot and kill and left out on the road.  They were arrested and given due process.  They’re names aren’t leaked.  We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials.  We’re not even seeing mug shots.  We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all.  We just know they left the scene of a armed chase alive.

This is the difference and the outrage.

they always show us the truth with their actions

HM AND THEYRE STILL ALIVE TO TELL THE TALE. Interesting.

Let’s just reiterate: “Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody.  Not shot and kill and left out on the road.  They were arrested and given due process.” 

Four white guys

With multiple weapons

Frat dudes from college in FB Ferguson thread mentioned earlier talked about “they even looted a McDonald’s!” I wrote at the same time as someone else about how they were getting milk and yogurt to help with the agony of being tear gassed. 

And then other dude writes: “Their needing milk did not justify them breaking into something. But I would say that’s it not quite the same level as looting for lootings sake.”

Has this pampered motherfucker ever been teargassed? I’d say in this case the end justifies the means. 

Seriously. I fucking can’t.

DEVELOPING NOW: Tear gas has been launched into crowd, many dispersed, and now some looting has begun (that damn liquor store and beauty supply AGAIN). Most protesters trying stop the property destruction and are pissed at the few assholes who are at it again. There are significantly fewer people from the community around tonight because of the curfew, so no one but the police to protect businesses. No movement YET from the police (except for firing the tear gas, which is what set people off). #staywoke #insolidarity #dontshoot #dontloot #nojusticenocurfew

UPDATE: Some reports that a CNN crew member was attacked by a protester. Police choppers overhead now too. Rubber bullets have also been fired into the crowd. Some protesters are agitated by the presence of the press. 

At the top of the curfew, the protest site seemed more like a party than anything else. Riot police began to advance about 30 minutes later and the mood soured almost instantly. Many of the peaceful protesters are worried that the last 24 hours of progress has evaporated. Most seem furious over the looting. They’re trying to prevent it, but are growing increasingly agitated that the police aren’t actually protecting the businesses, just firing tear gas and bullets into the crowd. Looters are out of town “opportunists” who wait for a micro-aggression from the police to start raiding a store. 

*Not a fan of Vice News, but I’ll admit that they have the most reliable feed/stream right now.

Should add aforementioned FB friend is Asian dude, added how he lives “10 minutes away and ”there’s a genuine fear in the population here of the escalating unlawful behavior.”

I assume he’s talking about all the white people scared of the residents of Ferguson, but that could also serve as a statement about the residents of Ferguson fearing what the cops are going to do to them next.

Facebook friend from college posting about “should the police in Ferguson just stand by and let the city destroy itself?” 

And I’m pretty much all like GTFO, the overwhelming majority of protesters are PEACEFUL. The police in Ferguson are destroying the damn city.
