“Don’t wanna be an American idiot.
Don’t want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alienation.
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
For that’s enough to argue.

Well maybe I’m the faggot America.
I’m not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody queue the propaganda.
And sing along to the age of paranoia.

Don’t want to be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
It’s calling out to idiot America.“

I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate this

Guys, I’m not from the United States but I am very interested in American politics.

Lemme tell you why. It’s one of the most powerful countries in the world. So they have a lot of influence on the world.

As someone from the Netherlands, it’s disturbing to see an orange man trying to run for president. And I think, as it is right now, he will win. As long as people don’t want to vote: Trump will win.

Trump wants to separate us. Trump is a populist. He says what a large group wants. If the US does a thing, then the rest of the world will follow. Like, some people in the Netherlands aren’t too crazy about the refugees and immigrants and if it goes on like this we will be as we once were before the wars.

Hillary on the other hand, you know what to expect from her. She’s had a lot of experience. It was not always good. But you Americans need someone who knows how politics work. Not some imbecile orange who only shouts and never does something.

I don’t think u Americans realise how much of an influence u are.

So tell me. Do u want more separation in the world (maybe even leading to war)?

Remember, history doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.

More on the Missouri separating Nebraska and Kansas please because I need to know, what was life like for Nebraska knowing they couldn't do anything for their younger sibling as they were dying (I love your blog btw it's such a big help)

Aw thanks glad I could help lol

Basically the Kansas-Nebraska Act was passed because Stephen Douglas wanted to build a Midwestern railway and link it to the Northern rail system to finally complete a Transcontinental Line out to California

Only the South was mad about that because it was slated to run entirely through the North and really? Again? The North is getting all the tax dollars and development thrown at them and the South gets nothing? All power would be concentrated in free states who’d work against their interests if that happened

So Douglas repealed the Missouri Compromise to create two new territories who could decide over slavery based on popular sovereignty. The understanding was that Nebraska would be anti-slavery and Kansas would be pro-slavery. After all, Missouri went out of their way to get slavery and Kansas is practically on the same latitude as them

But then Kansas was more liberal than anticipated and the plan blew up in everyone’s faces.

Tbh Nebraska’s early childhood is really vague? They were created out of unorganized territory like Kansas, which basically means it is unclear who was taking care of this kid or who was supposed to be

Alfred was off being a nation and trying to prevent the inevitable outbreak of war, Iowa was nearby but likely didn’t realize they existed or were in need of a babysitter, Missouri wouldn’t have taken both twins when they only cared about the one. That basically leaves Louisiana, who was only connected to NE because they were a Louisiana Purchase state

Except Louisiana was a distant Southerner and Missouri was their direct younger sibling, the first one created out of their territory. At best, they were a bystander to Kansas’s situation. If Nebraska ever lived with them in the first place, they likely ran away soon after getting there

There was a huge boom in western territories right then. Half the country was settled in like two decades, the 1850s-60s. Some of the kids were bound to get lost in the mix, and Nebraska was one of them

Everyone just completely forgot about them

A young girl climbed up a step ladder to stand at the podium before a tense Charlotte City Council meeting.

Petite in size, with braids in her hair and hearts on her t-shirt, Zianna Oliphant collected herself and delivered her message loud and clear.

“It’s a shame that our fathers and mothers are killed and we can’t see them anymore. It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.”

Without any extra funding, the city of Flint, Michigan will run out of the money it needs to keep buying bottled water and water filters for residents in 51 days.

Where are the celebrity’s now? … Where is Hillary since she got her nod from the DNC .. Where is the President? .. Why hasn’t the governor been ousted or put in jail? How long are these people going to be without clean drinking water?? It’s been years since they found out, and still nothing is being done.
