Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.

Good lord, this is the most stark portrayal I’ve seen of this.

Holy crap, over nine years?

[Tweet from Mark Mellman: “Why the poor can have ‘things’ but can’t escape poverty” with a chart showing the decline in cost over time of goods (especially steep for electronics) and the simultaneous increase in cost over time of needs like housing, healthcare, and education.]

Keep telling people not to spend their money on shoes, though. That’ll really help.

This is why it’s entirely reasonable that someone who can’t afford to purchase health insurance or pay college tuition has decent clothing, a “nice” TV (all TVs are “nice” now) or a smartphone. And also why people should stop making presumptions about how other people spend money.

Let’s also not lose sight of the fact that the destruction of marine life  is making it increasingly difficult for these people to keep their traditional ways of life because they are dependent on the sea.

Cash raised for killer Mo. cop now surpasses Michael Brown donations
August 24, 2014

Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown’s family as the officer’s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday.

Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came toBarney’s Sports Pub in south St. Louis.

"Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard."

She refused to give the media her name, saying “You want my name? I am Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.

The media has shown a strong bias against Wilson supporters, the speaker said, drawing loud applause from the crowd.

"We share the united belief that officer Wilson’s actions on Aug. 9 were warranted and justified and he has our unwavering support," the woman said.

A crowd-funding page created for Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after surpassing their goal of $100,000 in four days. The group then opened a new fundraising page, which already has more than $104,000.

This amount surpasses the more than $214,000 raised in support of the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. According to the page, which was set up by Brown family lawyer Benjamin Crump, “the funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.”

The Support Darren Wilson group, which has more than 58,000 likes on Facebook, encouraged supporters who could not attend the rally to “blow up some Twitter accounts” with photos of supporters and the hashtag #‎iamdarrenwilson.

Disheartening (though unsurprising) and thoroughly disgusting! 

So if u support #iamdarrenwilson u r saying u r a murdering coward police officer. This whoa is me mentality his supporters have is sickening. This man showed Mike Brown no respect no decency no innocent until proven guilty nothing. Mike Brown because he was a black male was guilty as charged for being from the hood and black. So they r receiving death threats so what. This boy parents have to bury him tmmrw. So miss me with the bs.

I don’t give a damn how scared these murder apologists are because it’s their core beliefs that have ultimately led up to the Mike Browns, Ezel Fords and Rekia Boyds dying in the damn streets. To hell with them, Darren Wilson is on paid leave which means he still has a job, money, freedom. He hasn’t been arrested and charged, so there are no legal fees to see about, so his evil ass doesn’t need any money !

Cop Assigned To Ferguson Protests Threatens Attorney General Holder →

christel-thoughts:

thepoliticalfreakshow:

A Velda City Police sergeant assigned to the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, couldn’t hold the hate inside.

Sergeant Mike Weston took to Twitter this week, complaining about “libs”, giving out false information, insulting Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson’s approach to community policing and threatening to seek out visiting U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in order to “punch him in the nose.”

Asked by followers on Twitter why police had gassed a group of people who were in their own back yard, Sgt. Weston responded that gunshots had been fired from that location. The problem is, a Daily RFT reporter was in that back yard and caught the incident on video. No shots were fired; no one was armed and everyone had their hands up in protest. When presented with that information, Sgt. Weston admitted he was not even in the area when the gassing occurred.

"I wasn’t spreading misinformation." Sgt. Weston defended himself. "There were shots being fired some yards, maybe not this particular one."

Too bad police didn’t gas the “particular one” instead of the innocent people. 

Sgt. Weston, who has since deleted his Twitter account, @officeranon2, also made a point of running down Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson. He called the Captain’s interactions with the protesters “Hug a Thug” and accused him of a double standard based on skin color, posting this tweet:

twitter.jpegSgt. Weston also took it upon himself to post photos of Mike Brown, the teenager shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson, participating in a strong arm robbery. Sgt. Weston tweeted:

"Happy to release this now. Here is the innocent Mike Brown moments before the shooting."

He then mocked Mike Brown’s death, tweeting:

"what I learned today was Mike Brown was shot 625 times in the back by the grand wizard in ferguson."

Sgt. Weston also shrugged off the gassing of the Al Jazeera news crew as collateral damage, and the fault of the journalists. But he outdid himself with his tweet about Attorney General’s visit to Ferguson. (Photo above with Capt. Johnson.) He tweeted he was considering assaulting Eric Holder:

I had the thought yesterday that we should change our relationship with police. If our elected officials gain their power through the consent of the governed, maybe we should use that model for police - they gain their power only through the consent of those policed. What we need is a mechanism that will enable that dynamic. 

There has to be a workable way to get the Mike Westons off police forces everywhere. A referendum process? A public complaint forum? Some way for a community to force a judgement about an officer’s fitness by some group not affiliated with the police.

Any ideas?

this is why we keep saying it’s not about that one officer.
