Thoughts, ideas, and non-sense or in other words this is just a outlet for my somewhat creative mind, most of the pictures are not mine but the captions are what they inspired me to write.

Islam doesn’t promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion and like every religion in the world, in depends on what you bring to it. If you’re a violent person, your Islam, your Judaism, your Christianity, your Hinduism is going to be violent. There are marauding Buddhist monks in Myanmar slaughtering women and children. Does Buddhism promote violence? Of course not. People are violent or peaceful, and that depends on their politics their social world, the way that they see their communities, the way they see themselves. By Religious scholar Reza Aslan answers CNN’s question, “Does Islam promote violence?” (via mediamattersforamerica)

The American Civil Liberties Union obtained a series of internal papers from intelligence agencies including the NSA and Defense Intelligence Agency detailing how integral Reagan’s 1981 order is to the NSA’s current surveillance program. The order broadly allows the government to collect data from any company that is believed to have ties to foreign organizations. It also complicates the path forward for intelligence reforms in Congress.
Previous reports acknowledge the order’s use as a foundation for some of the NSA’s surveillance programs such as gaining backdoor access to tech companies’ data centers. But the new documents, which were released as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit the ACLU and other civil liberties advocates filed just before Edward Snowden’s leaks to the media, show Executive Order 12333 is the “primary source” authority when it comes to the NSA’s foreign spy programs.

Wasn’t Reagan the president that said “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives?”

So many questions…
1.)  Where did you get the orange seed? Was it in an orange transported to your store over roads and bridges paid for by other taxpayers? 
2.)  Did the orange arrive safely at your market? Was the truck driver licensed to drive?  Did bandits stop him and steal the truck contents?
3.) What water did you use on the orange plant?  Was it water purified by your local sanitation department? 
4.)  If your neighbor was stealing 33% of your oranges, would you call the police?  Where do their salaries come from?
5.)  What was your financial contribution to the creation of the Internet?

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
