"Senator Marco Rubio believes the embargo against Cuba has been ineffective, yet he wants to continue perpetuating failed policies. After 50 years of conflict, why not try a new approach? The United States trades and engages with other communist nations, such as China and Vietnam. Why not Cuba? I am a proponent of peace through commerce, and I believe engaging Cuba can lead to positive change.

It feels like something big is happening. It feels like high noon. But not for me.
The other day I was channel surfing and happened on to an old movie called “High Noon”. For those of you who do not know, this is a movie from 1952. I had seen it before years ago as a child.
The old reflex to change the channel kicked in, as a visceral reaction against the washed out black and white made me want to look for something a bit more “modern” and relevant and less old school hokey.
You know what white privilege is in this country? The fact that I can "know my rights" and stand up to police without the slightest fear of getting shot in the back... Minimal fear. Because at the end of the day I'm white and I'm not that afraid of the police.
Reject the “He was a good kid” or “He was a criminal” narrative and lift up the “Black lives matter” narrative.Submitted by Crebsington on Tue, 11/25/2014 - 22:58
Reject the “He was a good kid” or “He was a criminal” narrative and lift up the “Black lives matter” narrative. Those who knew him say Brown was a good kid. But that’s not why his death is tragic. His death isn’t tragic because he was on his way to college the following week. His death is tragic because he was a human being and his life mattered.

Hey everyone, I'm so ecstatic right now. I have this natural high that you can't get from any drug. I'm just so proud of myself and only my DP Family can fully appreciate why.
I've been doing a few projects around the house lately to alleviate some stress and boredom. In October, I decided I was finally gonna start a garden and become a little more self-sufficient. I started collecting 5 Gal. buckets from work and picking up potting soil every week. I planted and I hoped, and it grew and grew.

INTERVIEW: 90-Year-Old Florida Man Charged w/ Feeding Homeless
Published on Nov 8, 2014
++ The state, arrested a man, Mr. Arnold Abbott, a WWII combat-vet infantryman, an original Civil Rights Movement participant, a genuine Christian who walks the talk, who not only feeds the homeless, but 'teaches them how to fish' so they can grow to sustain themselves. But nope: Mutual aid and eventual self-sufficiency & independence are a no no to the fascist corporatist state, where they must 'permit' you to do x, y, z...and everything else. F'ng travesty.
SHAME ON YOU!
