humanity. cold war has warm hearts.
Hanging on by a fragile thread.
Living our lives like we’re already dead.
Your maker is awaitin’ if you’re ready or not.
Wish I could look that thing in the face,
Transcend both time and space.

CHILD SHOT IN THE HEAD BY BASHAR’S SOLDIERS WHILE PLAYING ***GRAPHIC*** Homs: Oct 24, 2011- WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO ????
Dear World: WATCH this video. WATCH every agonizing second as the child suffers. WATCH the look in his eyes as his life slips away. WATCH the fear in his face as he has no idea of whats happened to him. WATCH the confusion in his arms as he flails. WATCH as he suffocates and pulls on his shirt to breathe. WATCH as he attempts to speak but no words come out, only blood. WATCH the blood spills out from his neck.
WATCH as the people around him dread the fact that they need to take him to a hospital where whomever drops him off will be arrested, tortured and maybe murdered and where the child could possibly be left to die by Bashar’s Soldiers as ‘punishment’ to the opposition for their audacious freedom protests.
WATCH. WATCH. WATCH. As the children of Syria are murdered and the world stands by, not wanting any part of this ‘“mess”, this “problem” that wont go away with these “peasants” that wont end their calls for freedom …. if all you do is WATCH then you are no better than the evil soldier taking aim pulling the trigger to lodge a bullet into this child’s head. Stand up and do something. You know what to do. If you dont then you know how to find out. Now do it.
PLEASE HELP US!
“As demonstrators converged on Wall Street — with police blocking them from reaching the New York Stock Exchange — much of the news media paid little attention to the protests. Meanwhile, much of the conservative punditry has taken to mocking the demonstrations, with conservative Twitter users lambasting the “hippies” in New York City. CNN contributor and RedState blogger Erick Erickson labeled the protesters as “profoundly dumb.”
Certainly, debates about the tactics and strategy behind an anti-Wall Street campaign are warranted. But in a country where much of the populist energy has been absorbed by a movement that compared expanding access to private insurance to “death panels,” it’s worth reviewing why Americans and others should be protesting against Wall Street.
While many of the conservative defenders of Wall Street may be quick to portray protests against the American financial establishment as driven by envy of its wealth or far-left ideologies, the truth is that people have a very simple reason to be angry — because Wall Street’s actions made tens of millions of people dramatically poorer through no fault of their own. In 2010, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank conducted studies of the effects of the global recession — caused largely by Wall Street financial instruments that were poorly regulated by government policies — and found that the recession threw 64 million people into extreme poverty:
The International Monetary Fund estimates that the global economy contracted by 0.6 per cent in 2009 and the implications of this have been severe for many. Economic growth in developing countries was only 1.7 per cent in 2009 compared with 8.1 per cent in 2007. However, if China and India are excluded, the economies of developing countries actually contracted by 1.8 per cent. The World Bank has estimated that an additional 64 million people will be living in extreme poverty on less than US$1.25 a day by the end of 2010 as a result of the global recession.
And nearly three years after the start of the global economic crisis — where taxpayers in multiple countries were called upon to save the financial industry — most of the banking elite’s top executives remain virtually untouched. There have been almost no high-profile convictions for fraud and related financial crimes, banking profits continue to soar, and unemployment not just in the U.S. but globally remains very high.
Given these facts, the question is not why more than a thousand people demonstrated on Wall Street yesterday. The question is, why aren’t even more people in the streets of the financial district in New York City?” - Zaid Jilani, ThinkProgress

Dear Jessica Clark,
You are beautiful, you have a beautiful face and then you tattooed all over it. You’re dumb and I hope that you don’t put anything else on there.
