This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

can somebody break this and give it to some real live kids who are actually starving right now

oh yes, let’s make a memorial to remember the lives that never had conscious thought
let’s make a memorial using real money to represent lives that made absolutely no impact on the earth whatsoever 
let’s just waste all this money in a useless box and start shoving prolife down people’s throats
instead of actually taking a chance to listen to
the teenagers that made a mistake
the people who were violated, and had heavier consequences than the scars in their mind
the people that didnt know better
the people that couldnt afford it
the people that didnt want it
the people that chose not suffer their lives and the child’s life 
lets build a giant reminder to why humans are not allowed to make their own choices based on biological factors they cannot control
lets also just waste a fuck ton of money for no reason. 

When I read “Memorial to the Missing” I thought it would be to all the people who’ve gone missing trying to cross the border, or all the children who aged out of the foster care system and dropped off the map, or all the people who died of some preventable disease but LOLNOPE it’s some pro-life bullshit memorial to “missing” fetuses.
“We must prevent the need to add to this memorial.” Giving all those pennies to a Planned Parenthood or a food bank would be a good start, but I guess that kind of lacks ~symbolism~.

That’s exactly what I was thinking, “Missing Children”, not this morbid alter to religious conservatives’ favorite obsession.
Instead of doing something constructive, like promoting sex education (which includes a comprehensive discussion of STIs, safer sex, and contraception), teen outreach, or encouraging families to adopt older children, these nut cases are wasting money and valuable resources shaming women.
Abstinence-only education doesn’t work. Let’s address the real causes of unwanted pregnancy — misinformation about sex and poor access to family planning resources and birth control.
I am truly over this bull crap!

Fla. man charged with attempting to burn, kill lesbian couple and their eight kids

THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is a HATE CRIME! It’s an act of violence that is intended to intimidate a group of people. In this case, LGBT folks. This coward attempted such a vile act in order to put LGBT folks in their place!

Lighting his balls on fire would be a waste of a good flame!

The Elephant in the Room

loladelphia:

It’s time to have a serious and honest conversation about the violence that occurs in Philadelphia’s schools. For the last two weeks, multiple stories have appeared on Philly.com discussing the despicable acts of recorded violence that have taken place at Bartram High School in Southwest Philadelphia. It has been common knowledge for a long time that our city’s schools have a serious issue with violence, and are known more for that than what is going on academically. 

The truth and sad reality when it comes to violence in our city’s schools is that it happens because we as a city have allowed it to happen, and accepted violence as part of the urban educational experience. Everyone looks to blame someone—the teachers, the administrators, the parents, or the students themselves, but no one ever thinks about the kind of culture we have cultivated in our city. Look past all the beauty and positive things in Philadelphia and you will see a layer of grit and grime that is hard to scrub away. Our city’s government is corrupt, so much so that people just accept it as a way of life. We’ve had issues with violence in certain areas of the city, and it’s just looked at as something one should expect and tolerate, not something to be pissed off about. Some people even take pride in that sort of thing. Our city’s schools have been allowed to decompose into underfunded warehouses that lack basic things such as a nurse and librarian, and people just sit back and allow our kids to fall even further behind their suburban counterparts.

While we’re on that topic, the purpose of this isn’t to pit suburban against urban or vice-versa, but it’s pretty insulting when people who don’t live or work in Philadelphia post articles about Philadelphia schools talking about how grateful they are that their kids don’t go to a school like Bartram. Good for you, but think about the parents who HAVE to send their kid to a school like Bartram. Or, better yet—think about the kids at Bartram who care about their education and have a dream about maybe going to college or trade school, but all that valuable education time is being taken away from them because their schools are in such bad shape.

Our schools are being shut down, the ones that remain are painfully underfunded. It’s not surprising that a school with chronic issues such as Bartram are having these type of issues. Philadelphia deserves better than this nonsense. Philadelphia will never cast aside the sins of its past unless we as a city start standing up for what we know is right, and what we know is wrong—especially when it comes to our city’s kids. I know it sounds crazy, but the culture of…

Watch: Honey Maid responds to the homophobic haters

When Honey Maid released its “This is Wholesome” graham crackers commercial last month, advocacy groups that didn’t like the depicted same-sex and biracial families penned their grievances to the food company.

The American Decency Association called the commercial the work of Satan, decrying its “evil agenda.” One Million Moms said Nabisco should be “ashamed” of itself for its “attempt to normalize sin,” “promote homosexuality” and “push the LGBT agenda,” calling on others to boycott Nabisco products and write to its executives. 

So Honey Maid decided to make a video specifically for disgruntled groups such as these, putting to all those vitriolic letters to good use.

How One Man’s Trip to Toys ‘R’ Us Brought Mobility to Hundreds of Disabled Kids via NationSwell

Something to make you smile. :)

  • I don’t usually post these things because, more often than not, they’re emotionally manipulative dreck used to make you part with your money. I assure you, this is not about asking for money. This is just one man who came up with a brilliant low cost idea with the potential to improve the lives of disabled children everywhere.

detrea:

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.

SERIOUS TALK: 
Okay idk if you guys have heard about this yet so I’m going to inform you about what’s going on because it’s really serious and I think everyone needs to know about this. So basically there are some sick fucking people now who have started taping and gluing razor blades around children’s parks (and on the handles of gas pumps) and placing them strategically so children get hurt. They tape them to the handles of monkey bars (so the children’s hands get sliced open), they tape them inside of slides (i think you can imagine what will happen there) and just everywhere around the playgrounds with a sick intention of hurting young kids. I know this has literally nothing to do with my blog but I take my younger cousin to the park almost every day in the summer, and I can’t imagine what I’d do if he went down a slide rigged with razor blades. So pleaspleaseplease reblog this, I think people need to see it so they can be more careful, I don’t want little kids possibly seriously hurting themselves.

Spreading this like wildfire!

I normally don’t reblog stuff like this, but I’ve got three little brother I’ve got to look out for.

I’ve got a nephew and I still would reblog this even if I didn’t know any children personally — THIS IS LEGIT.
http://www.snopes.com/horrors/parental/playground.asp
Some sick SOB did this in Illinois, and who knows who else got the idea…. Be careful, wee ones.

There’s a special place in hell for f*kd-in-the-head jackasses who do this isht.
Reblogging this for all the parents, aunts, uncles, big brothers & sisters, and anyone out there who cares for little ones. Be aware of what’s around you. Carefully inspect the places where your children play. Keep them safe.
All I can say is, Thank God I don’t have kids! :\
