Coachella’s owner Phil Anschutz actively funds anti-LGBTQ and climate denial groups

  • There’s something rotten at the heart of Coachella, and the values it appears to represent don’t exactly line up with its owner’s practices. 
  • According to recent reports, the festival’s owner, Philip Anschutz, has a history of funding anti-LGBTQ groups and climate denial strategy, in addition to having a record of anti-environmental scandals.
  • Anschutz has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-gay organizations, such as the Alliance Defending Freedom, the National Christian Foundation and the Family Research Council. 
  • These groups, according to the Washington Post, are “aggressively working to chip away at the equal rights of LGBTQ Americans." 
  • Greenpeace has also specifically named Anschutz as a major financer of climate denial groups, alongside fossil fuel billionaires the Koch Brothers. Read more
I am who I am, and what I believe in and what my spirituality is about is that we’re all in this together. That I think it is not a good thing to believe as human beings we can turn our backs on the suffering of other people. This is what Pope Francis is talking about, that we can’t just worship billionaires and the making of more and more money. Life is more than that.

Headcanon: the Bidders fuCKING LOVE the Kentucky Derby. Okay mainly just Mamo. They make the trip out every year (sucks to be you if you don’t understand english, wahh)

Mamoru actually dresses up (and shaves, who’d guessed it?) Bc it’s basically a big party and he spends the whole day betting on horses and practically sCREAMS when he loses

Baba hits on the pretty girls, Ota drools over the hats (and designed MC’s hat)

Soryu is always on the lookout for nefarious types and Eisuke is shaking hands and kissing babies like a true billionaire bc the more rich friends, the better

They each knock back the Mint Julep drinks in the pure gold cups (each one is like $5000 each for charity) like they’re FUCKING WATER

it’s like rich people’s paradise and the Bidders fit right in

anonymous asked:

under communism, wldnt peoples standard of living overall decrease?

Not even close, actually. This statistic states that the worlds 8 richest people have as much wealth as the poorest 50% of people on the planet. So if you consider this very basic case, taking the wealth from these people and distributing it among the poorest half of the planet’s population would result in roughly doubling the standard of living of 3-4 billion people at the cost of just those 8 people not being hundred-billionaires. Obviously communism is more nuanced than taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor, but even that simplest approximation pretty much disproves the claim that the majority of people would be worse off if wealth was distributed more evenly. Because wealth of our civilization is so highly concentrated in the hands of so few people many people suffer so that a handful can have more money than thousands of people could ever spend. 

There’s no reception in Possum Springs

“No reception here
I wave my black phone
In the air like a flare, like a prayer, but no reception

I read on the internet: baby face boy billionaire
Phone app sold made more money in one day than my family in 100 generations
More than my whole world ever has
World where house-buying jobs became rent-paying jobs became living with family jobs

Boy biollionaires
Money is access, access to politicians waiting for us to die,
lead in our water, alcohol and painkillers

Replace my job with an app
Replace my dreams of a house and a yard with a couch in the basement
"The future is yours!”
Forced 24-7 entrepreneurs
I just want a paycheck and my own life

I’m on the couch in the basement
They’re in the house and the yard
Some night I will catch a bus out to the west coast
And burn their silicon city to the groung"
