The thing is, capitalism has never been reformed ‘peacefully’.

Reform movements which have formally disavowed violent means - from the Civil Rights movement in 1960s America, to Attlee’s Labour government in 1940s Britain - have only been historically successful because mass, organised, revolutionary movements of the politically disenfranchised outside of the formal reform movement have forced those benefiting from the status quo to cede concessions to non-violent, often middle-class, reformist leaders. Malcolm X, the Socialist Party of the USA and the Communist Party forced the American elite to come to the table with Dr. King; the syndicalist and communist trade unions in post-War Britain made opposition to Attlee’s NHS and limited nationalisations foolhardy.

Those who preach non-violence as a strategy rather than as a flexible tactic fatally mistake capitalism for a rational, logical system which plays by its own rules and respects human life.

We know better.

I’m not convinced that the Democratic Party can be reformed. I think it still has a kind of allegiance to a neoliberal orientation. It still has allegiance to Wall Street […] This is a party that couldn’t even publicly oppose TPP… Couldn’t vote to stop fracking, and so on. They can’t even talk about the Israeli occupation honestly… Why? Because they tied to the lobby, they tied to AIPAC. So that, when you have those kinds of restraints on you, these albatrosses around your neck, how are you going to be a party for the people? […] There has to be some integrity and moral consistency. And unfortunately, the Democratic Party just strikes me as not being able to meet that challenge.

Chip And Joanna Gaines' Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage
HGTV says, “We don’t discriminate against the LGBT community in any of our shows.” (This story has been updated with a comment from HGTV and with the Gainses's pastor's response.)
By Kate Aurthur

This is the article that Kate Aurthur wrote about Chip and Joanna Gaines. 

As you can see from the headline…. this article is going nowhere except for hate city. However, the article starts out pretty fantastic. The 4th paragraph starts out with “ So are the Gaineses against same-sex marriage?”. To me, this is how the media has screwed up in every way possible. Who really cares if the Gaineses are against Same Sex Marriage? As a gay man, I’m in love with Joanna’s design work. She’s freaking amazing, and yet the left has to try, and destroy something so beautiful. I’ve come to the conclusion that the left really hates successful people on the right, and I’m not assuming that these two are Republicans. Who knows, and honestly who cares? I don’t. 

This is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Barack Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright was caught spouting off HATE SPEECH, and the left let it go. Barack Obama, in his defense, did come out against Reverend Wrights hateful words. We all know why he did it. Political gain. That’s obvious because after 8 years this country has never been more divided since the passage of the Civil Rights Act.

So do your own homework on this. Chip, and Joanna are victims of the drive-by media. They have been singled out because they’re Christians. In America, if you are a Christian, or white.. then you have no place in Hollywood. The problem is that the Gainses are not in Hollywood. They live comfortably, and Godly in Waco, Texas where the PC crowd and the drive-by media can go to hell. 

I stand with Chip, and Johanna!  

The theory of exodus proposes that the most effective way of opposing capitalism and the liberal state is not through direct confrontation but by means of what Paolo Virno has called “engaged withdrawal,”mass defection by those wishing to create new forms of community. One need only glance at the historical record to confirm that most successful forms of popular resistance have taken precisely this form. They have not involved challenging power head on (this usually leads to being slaughtered, or if not, turning into some—often even uglier—variant of the very thing one first challenged) but from one or another strategy of slipping away from its grasp, from flight, desertion, the founding of new communities.

White people need to talk about race because racial issues involve them, too. The reality is, however, that many white people feel uneasy talking about it. Most have never felt the need to think critically about race, let alone their own whiteness, because they tend to grow up in racially isolated communities where their knowledge about racism and people of color comes from brief, reductive history lessons. Furthermore, when whites learn about racism in school, it is often portrayed as a phenomenon of the past. This makes it harder for white people to comprehend the existence of modern-day racism and how they are directly implicated in it.

BC Federation of Labour Launches Campaign to Elect NDP Government in May
Effort to focus on jobs, wages and public services and increasing voter turnout.

British Columbia’s labour movement launched a campaign Wednesday to elect a more progressive government that will ensure better jobs, higher wages and investments into public services in next May’s election.

“We have the power to make British Columbia a truly great place to live,” B.C. Federation of Labour president Irene Lanzinger told a cheering crowd at its annual convention in Vancouver.

The federation, which includes unions representing more than 500,000 members, announced a political action campaign built on the slogan “Better Can Happen Here” aimed at electing an NDP government.

“We don’t think Christy Clark and the BC Liberals are looking out for the future of the people in the province,” Lanzinger said.

Tracing Real Body Models
More than 58 000 people, from 112 different countries have visited our site (in French and in English) last year. During the first six months of 2015, already more than 38 000 people were inspired by our “real body” models to trace. If we count the number of people who have subcribed to both sites, you are more than 700 waiting patiently for new silhouettes to be published.

An alternative to the stereotypical fashion figure templates. 

I thought this page might be of interest to this blog and your followers. They are against the stylized, not proportionate to any body fashion tracing figures and make ones based on real people. There are a lot of different fat and chubby body shapes, but also skinny and everything in between, just at proportions that are from actual people. 

Thank you for the submission! This is pretty cool! -Mod V
