“Well in my day I could work summers and pay for college”
“You Millennials just want more and more”
“We had to actually work in my day”
“Who is going to pay for all the things you want? Us?”
“Millennials don’t understand politics”
Bitch we understand enough and that’s why we are fed up. I’m sick of you entitled, homophobic, racist, economy ruining motherfuckers.
You were able to work summers and pay for your college because your tuition was able to be paid working a minimum wage job part time.
Yes, we Millennials want more. Because we were told all our lives, go to college and you’ll get a great job! Well guess fucking what? I went to college. I’m tens of thousands of dollars in debt and there are no fucking jobs. So yes, I want more. I want fucking jobs. I want free college education for the rest of my generation so they don’t have to be in debt like me. I want loan forgiveness programs. I want free fucking healthcare for everyone because it’s the human thing to do to fucking help people.
Yeah you were able to fucking work because THERE WERE JOBS. Millennials work our asses off. 2 or 3 minimum wage jobs and still barely break even because minimum wage pays shit IN THE ECONOMY THAT YOU RUINED.
Yes, you WILL PAY FOR THE THINGS WE WANT. Everyone will pay for it. But the top 1% is going to have to pay for most of it.
Millennials do fucking understand politics. Stop saying that as a way to try and discourage my generation from voting, just so you can get your idiotic power hungry Republican candidate. Stop saying that so you can get the democratic votes for Hillary Clinton. Because 48% of the voters that voted for Hillary at Iowa were FUCKING BABY BOOMERS.
I want to share with you a tragic crime that happened in Chile on July 2, 2017. That day, the attention of the country was torn between the presidential primary elections and the final football match of the Confederations Cup that was being played against Germany. While this happened, a man decided to kill two innocent people and severely injure four others.
Shootings are very rare in Chile. When they happen, it’s usually gang or drug related, and those happen in neighborhoods where poverty and crime are a predominant reality. I can’t remember a case in which a common citizen would take a gun somewhere and start killing people, and our gun laws are strict enough that not anyone can get a hold of a gun.
On the day in question, a Sunday, a man called Osvaldo Campos Azocar (42) was in a local hotel casino, one of the main ones in the country. He’d been staying at the hotel since Friday night, and had been gambling a lot of money. At around noon, he bet 2,100 dollars in the roulette. He lost. It was his final bet, and his losses that weekend reached a total of 27,000 dollars. So Campos calmly got up from the table, took out a gun from his pocket, and started shooting. 25 rounds in total. It was all caught in the security cameras.
He instantly killed Oscar Reyes (36), a manager. His second fatal victim was Carolina Carreño (33). She was a croupier, and that day was her birthday. While she was dying in that casino, her two kids, family and friends were waiting for her at home to celebrate her birthday.
Campos then locked himself in a bathroom, where he refused to answer police and negotiators. In the same bathroom there was a security guard, unarmed, who locked himself in a cubicle and tried not to breathe so he wouldn’t alert of his presence. Cops were afraid to go in, in case he hurt the guard, but after almost 5 hours passed in silence, they went in and found Campos dead.
Osvaldo Campos was a vet. I’d heard of him before, several times. I’ve read complaints about his vet clinic, that he charged too high and had unethical practices, such as locking a client in his office if they didn’t pay. Some people even accused him of putting down a couple of pets after their owners failed to pay his bills. He had been expelled from the Veterinary College a month before. He had arrest orders against him and had been violent to an ex girlfriend. He obviously had gambling issues. He wasn’t a good man.
Campos didn’t shoot himself. Instead, he chose a much more painless way to go, a kindness to himself that he didn’t think of giving his victims. He injected himself with the same drug he used to euthanize animals in his practice. The fact that he brought this and the gun to the casino, makes authorities think this was all premeditated and not a spur of the moment thing.
Carolina Carreño was a close friend of one of my good friends. I never met her, but I’ve seen the devastation her random death caused in her loved ones. So please, whenever you decide to talk about a mass shooting and especially make excuses for the killers, keep in mind the victims, innocent people that happened to cross ithe path of someone who decided to take their anger and issues against the world in the worst possible way.
A new political alliance appeared to be forming in South Vietnam between militant Buddhists, disgruntled students and politicians who lost in the recent national elections. As anti-Government pressures mounted, students and Buddhists staged small demonstrations in Danang and Hue, as well as in Saigon, to denounce what they described as the “blatant rigging” of the elections.
North Vietnamese artillery emplacements in the demilitarized zone north of the Con Thien Marine outpost continued to be the main target of American planes. Nevertheless, enemy shelling continued and 77 marines were wounded.
After a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Premier Levi Eshkol made his government’s first announcement of concrete plans for the settlement of territories seized from the Arabs in June. Among the plan was the resettlement of the Etzion bloc of settlements, which had been situated on the west bank of the Jordan before the Palestine war.
In Washington, after virtually 12 hours of uninterrupted debate, the foreign ministers of the Organization of American States reached agreement on a new series of measures to combat and publicize Cuban-fomented subversion throughout the Western Hemisphere.
The official Hsinhua press agency said that party Chairman Mao Tse-tung had returned to Peking after making a wide tour of Communist China to see the results of the Cultural Revolution. The agency said the situation in the areas visited by Mr. Mao was "unprecedentedly fine."
The national board of Americans for Democratic Action approved a program opposing the war policy in Vietnam and the Administration’s proposal for a tax increase. However, the board rejected a “dump Johnson” drive at next year’s Democratic nominating convention. The liberal organization said the nation needed more tax money, but urged that it be raised by rate increases on corporations and high income earners.
Walter Reuther, president of the United Automobile Workers Union, also expressed his disapproval of Administration policy in Vietnam, and called for a halt in the bombing of North Vietnam. However, Mr. Reuther gave his endorsement to President Johnson for re-election in 1968.
…let us not forget that several years ago, Trump was in the middle of the so-called birther movement trying to delegitimize the president of the United States of America.
My dad was born in Poland. I know a little bit about the immigrant experience. Nobody has ever asked me for my birth certificate. Maybe it has something to do with the color of my skin.
