it's-a-party-in-the-usa

  • us government: *gerrymanders everything*
  • us government: *creates voter ID laws forcing people to pay to vote*
  • us government: *bars those who have been to prison from voting*
  • us government: *makes voting as difficult as possible*
  • usa: so the popular vote goes to hillary, the majority of people voted for hillary. people wanted hillary. not trump. hillary won the popular vote.
  • us government: trump wins
  • dems: the real people to blame for this are the stupid poor rednecks who did this to us.
  • dems: and not u know... the functionally unsound system we live in
  • dems: its also third party voters fault too lol
  • dems: because like the government is an innocent cinnamon roll and this totally wasn't rigged from the start.
We can't emphasize it enough: the tyranny right-wingers claim to oppose is already here and has been here since the founding of capitalism.

Capitalism is tyranny by the rich – by the capitalists, by the production autocrats, by the politicians who help facilitate it all. This system began through state violence and widespread expropriation of indigenous land, leading to the vast accumulation of property and capital in the hands of a small caste of elites. Capitalism today and all its problems and injustices cannot be separated from those original sins of systematic conquest. 

We are fighting for a world without this top-down bullshit, where people aren’t forced to sell their labor to powerful property owners or starve. We believe in a socialist system of economic democracy, where people come together and self-manage their workplaces and the larger economic goals. We presently have the capacity to free people from a bulk of the menial jobs capitalism forces on us – through automation and the active rejection of jobs that don’t provide for a tangible need in society, we could expand leisure time for all people, each person, by leaps and bounds. This is not just about cutting down inequality; this is just as much about human freedom and liberation. These values are two sides of the same coin. 

Now that Trump is president, we must abandon the neoliberal Democratic Party and move leftward towards ideas and solutions that can actually transform society away from all the aforementioned injustice. We must bring those disillusioned with the political and economic system into our fold – provide answers, organize, build a movement.

USA. California. Berkeley. 1971. At a Panther school. In 1970, in Oakland, David Hilliard created the idea for the first full-time liberation day school. This school, and its attendant dormitories in Oakland and Berkeley, was simply called the Children’s House. This school concept, directed by Majeda Smith and a team of Black Panther Party members, became the way in which sons and daughters of Black Panther Party members were educated.

If I’m going to vote for a female candidate for president. Then I’ll vote for a serious female candidate for president. NOT voting for a warmonger who got a party nomination through a rigged primary.

So Maxime Bernier (A Conservative Party of Canada leader contender) used a symbol overlayed on a pride flag, which is frequently used by the NRA and its supporters in the USA who advocate for loosened gun control and open carry of fire arms. He posted this less than a month after the Orlando mass shooting.

Intentional or not this looks bad.

The American Dream (Team)

I pledge allegiance to the flag…
And to the holy trinity of America. 

I AM SO LATE FOR THIS PARTY IN THE USA.

Happy birthday to Steve! And happy birthday to America’s freedom though I am how many days late. OTL

Better late than never!
*Spreads love, freedom, and some fireworks*

Hope you guys like this!

Now that #HillaryClinton is a step closer to becoming president. There’s no doubt that State Department would be turn into fracking marketing agency. Since she loves fracking so much. Can she count the amount of money she gotten in bribes from the frackers while breathing contaminated frack water and polluted air from fracking?

“Russia under Nicholas II, with all the survivals of feudalism, had opposition political parties, independent trade unions and newspapers, a rather radical parliament and a modern legal system. Its agriculture was on the level of the USA, with industry rapidly approaching the West European level.
In the USSR there was total tyranny, no political liberties and practically no human rights. Its economy was not viable; agriculture was destroyed. The terror against the population reached a scope unprecedented in history.
No wonder many Russians look back at Tsarist Russia as a paradise lost.”

— Oleg Gordievsky, The Independent, 21st July 1998.

Year in Review - January

This will be a special that will run through the last 12 days of 2015, each day highlighting a month in Fifth Harmony’s career this year.

We start off our flashback with January!

Fifth Harmony released a cover, Uptown Funk, which promoted their first headlining tour:


They were nominated for a People’s Choice Award for “Choice Breakout Group” and attended the awards show:


They had a photoshoot with Billboard:

And of course, who could forget, this was the month when we first heard Reflection, Fifth Harmony’s debut album, in its entirety during the last week of January? All thanks to iTunes’ First play feature, we FINALLY got to listen to the girls’ debut album!


To help promote the album, the girls started a series of album signing events in malls around the USA.

Their album release party in NYC got postponed to February following a heavy blizzard in the East Coast.


It was also this month when Fifth Harmony had their first Top 20 radio hit with Sledgehammer!

I’ve legit just flown half way across the world for my girl, Tay.

I’m proud to say that I’ve considered taylorswift my friend for nine years now. There isn’t much I wouldn’t do for her since her and her music have guided me through my life since 2006. When I found out that the 1989 World Tour was missing my home city, Perth, I was understandably devastated… But hey no problem I thought- I found the positive in the situation and saved up & planned a 3 month trip to America making sure the first thing I booked was a ticket to the 1989 show in Foxborough, MA!

Can’t wait to spend Saturday night with you taylorswift !! I’ll be dancing on my own, making the moves up as I go but happier than ever because of you.

Love you,
Chels x
