Being Alone, America, and Internet: Barack Obama @BarackObama Michelle and I grieve with all the families in El Paso and Dayton who endured these latest mass shootings. Even if details are still emerging, there are a few things we already know to be true. First, no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do. Every time this happens, we're told that tougher gun laws won't stop all murders; that they won't stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings. They can save some families from heartbreak. We are not helpless here. And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening Second, while the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a dangerous trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy. Like the followers of ISIS and other foreign terrorist organizations, these individuals may act alone, but they've been radicalized by white nationalist websites that proliferate agencies and internet platforms need to come up with better strategies to reduce the influence of these hate groups on the internet. That means that both law enforcement But just as important, all of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy. We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don't look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people. Such language isn't new it's been at the root of most human tragedy throughout history, here in America and around the world. It is at the root of slavery and Jim Crow, the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. It has no place in our politics and our public life. And it's time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much clearly and unequivocally. 3:01 PM 8/5/19 Twitter for iPhone 5,046 Retweets 14.6K Likes Eloquently said.

People have lost their common sense and too sensitive to handle the truth. The Democratic Party is Cham, is all based on lies and corruption and anyone who defends them need to have their head examined. Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell pointed to three measures enacted in the last seven years — Propositions 47 and 57 and Assembly Bill 109 — that he said have led to the release of too many criminals without creating a proper safety net of mental health, drug rehabilitation and other services. “We’re putting people back on the street that aren’t ready to be back on the street,” McDonnell said. He said the county jail system he runs, the largest in the nation, has become a “default state prison.” Sheriff’s officials have long criticized Proposition 47, which was approved by voters in 2014 and downgraded some drug and property crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. They say AB 109 — which moved state prisoners to local lockups — has pushed lower-level offenders out of custody and onto the streets, offering little deterrent against committing new crimes. 👊🏽💀👍🏽 UncleSamsMisguidedChildren 🇺🇸 Check out our store.

Doctor, Homeless, and Memes: VETERANS COME FIRST ALL owN FOUR CAR TAKE FIRST VETERANS REFUGEES CHECK ON AVET LIKE IF YOU AGREE A group of about 20 veterans and supporters gathered Saturday at the Westmoreland County Courthouse in downtown Greensburg to counter recent protests against President Trump's immigration orders. Organizer Lance Baird, 48, a Navy veteran who worked as an intelligence specialist in Afghanistan in the mid-1990s, said the nation should give priority to the needs of its veterans rather than taking in refugees. “Don't you think we should take care of our own first before you worry about anyone else?” he said. Baird of Greensburg expressed concern about homeless veterans and those with inadequate medical care. He said the Department of Veterans Affairs needs more money to better serve veterans, noting some experience long waits to see a doctor. “Instead of spending billions on bringing over people that we know don't like our culture and our way of life, why don't we take care of our own first who put their lives on the line to make our country as safe as it is?” he asked. I'm 100% supportive of Mr. Baird and I'm very glad to know that at least a small group of patriots rose in support of Trump. This is disgraceful that left-wing radicals organize riots and demonstrations across the country, and those who voted for Trump are silent. Veterans' problems are much more important to America than the problems of refugees, and Trump's policy to expel criminals from the country is the right policy. An unprecedented media attack is organized against Trump because he is trying to protect Americans. I call on all the American patriots to stand strong for Trump and support him in all his undertakings. veteranscomefirst veterans_us Veterans Usveterans veteransUSA SupportVeterans Politics USA America Patriots Gratitude HonorVets thankvets supportourtroops semperfi USMC USCG USAF Navy Army military godblessourmilitary soldier holdthegovernmentaccountable RememberEveryoneDeployed Usflag StarsandStripes

Memes, Cynical, and Dish: Palestine Opens First Vegan Cafeteria Team Vegan Cafe 6 Cafe &lestaurant Ovegantakeover On the 10th October 2016, Palestine’s first ever vegan cafeteria, Sudfeh, opened its doors for the first time. Located on the campus of Al Quds (Jerusalem) University, the cafeteria is not only the first of its kind in Palestine, but also in any university in the Arabic-speaking world. It was safe to say that the team was hopeful, but more than a little nervous, about how Sudfeh might be perceived and, importantly, whether people would come and eat there. In Palestine, veganism is little-known and the animal rights movement is in its infancy so the idea of a vegan cafeteria seemed somewhat radical when the project was first mooted. But the team behind the cafeteria, which is run as a joint not-for-profit initiative by the Palestinian Animal League (PAL) and Al Quds University, need not have worried. From its first day, Sudfeh has been full of happy customers; indeed, the success of the first week saw the kitchen completely selling out of food every day and having to up the food production to ensure that hungry customers could get their fill of healthy, nutritious, cruelty-free food 🌱 In its first month, Sudfeh has provided over 1,600 vegan meals to students on campus and the feedback has been hugely positive. Initially sceptical, students soon realised that the food served in Sudfeh is not only freshly prepared by talented chef, Anan, and his team, but that the dishes on offer are familiar Palestinian cuisine which many do not realise are vegan by default. For example, hummus, foul (beans), soups, stuffed vine leaves and (of course) falafel, are delicious dishes that form a large part of the Palestinian diet and have always been vegan. Add to this traditional favourites which can be “veganised” very easily, such as maqluba (“upside-down rice”) and the Sudfeh menu enticed initially cynical students and staff and kept them coming back. 🌱 veganpalestine palestineanimalleague freepalestine israel palestine vegan vegantakeover
