Today is the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. The people of Armenia  were suppressed by the Ottoman Empire for centuries and they were and are a christian people. In 1915 the Ottoman Empire attempted to wipe out the Armenian people in retaliation of them joining the Russians during World War One. (The Ottoman Empire was on the side of Germany during WW1). The Armenians were hunted down and murdered, tortured and raped. The captured ones were put in death camps and marched by force across desserts and frozen snow covered mountains until they died of starvation and/or exhaustion. At the end of WW1 there were 60,000 Armenians left. This is a event in history that has been forgotten. We must study history as a whole, including the events that no one wants to remember or talk about. 

I encourage to look more into it. Its not that hard, just type Armenian Genocide in your Google search.

2015 will be the year Liberal Tumblr learns to hate me because I am going to take every opportunity to call out its hypocrisy. And don’t take that as support far rightwingers, I just know you are all a part of the problem.

Hillary Clinton through the years

Hillary Clinton announces her second run for the presidency, starting her campaign as the Democrats’ best hope of fending off a crowded field of lesser-known Republican rivals and retaining the White House.

The overwhelming favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton will nonetheless face multiple challenges as she returns to the campaign trail seven years after losing the nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama. (Reuters)

Liberals might not like hearing this, but it’s going to be Hillary Clinton or a Republican in 2016. It really breaks down to these two options: 

1. Either get on board with Hillary Clinton, even if she’s not everything you’ve dreamed of. 

- or -

2. Whine and cry because Elizabeth Warren isn’t going to run, become apathetic, then let Republicans win the White House in 2016; likely replace four Supreme Court Justices over the following 8 years; start a war with Iran; ruin the planet; destroy our economy again; and undo all the good that’s been done these last 6 years.

Those are your choices.  Period.  No one else has a chance of winning.  Every vote you idealistically hand over to the Green Party or your favorite independent is a vote the Republicans were praying wouldn’t go to Hillary Clinton.  The two party system sucks.  The Electoral College is ridiculous and needs to be done away with.  However.  If either of the major parties even has the possibility of fracturing, it will happen to the GOP first.  The Batshit Crazy Terrible Republicans will split from the Just Regular Terrible Republicans and neither will have enough support to win an election.  Then the Left can split into Actual Save The Country Democrats and Wall Street Democrats like Hillary Clinton.   Until that happens, it’s just not safe to vote for a candidate who has no chance of winning because the alternative is a Republican.

So if you are one of those “but I want to vote with my heart!” people, save your bleating.  Not here for it.  I’m more concerned with you helping Jeb Bush or Scott Walker into office because you voted Green than hearing your list of grievances against Hillary that prevented you from pulling her lever.  If the Republicans put someone in the White house in 2016, it won’t be because the majority of the country wanted them there.  It won’t be because they ran the better campaign.  It will be because too many people with an idealistic view of Democracy voted for their favorite candidate instead of casting a vote against  the GOP.  When I vote next year, I won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton.  I’ll be voting to keep the least terrible option far away from the White House.

Oklahoma says there'll be no investigation into the shooting death of Eric Harris because it was an “accident".

1) Some old guy makes a flimsy half-assed excuse about getting his taser confused with his gun (even though they look/feel nothing alike)

2) Another cop is seen laughing and mocking Harris as he lies on the ground dying and begging for help.

Some fucking accident.

I can’t help but to laugh at the things I see on the Facebook page Being Liberal

Detroit has been run by Liberals for over 50 years, and look at them. 

Detroit is not some foreign country, it is part of our country. And, it is where we are all going unless we reject the culture of dependency and revive the culture of self-responsibility.
