    I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama


    that came from taxes I paid.

    Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.

    I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!

    Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.

    what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

    Same! I am also Canadian and I am all about taxes and public health care. Fuck, raise my taxes, improve school systems, create more student grants and lower college tuition! Create more national parks! Improve welfare! If I am living in a low income household, or if I am paying tuition, I am getting all that money back in April anyway and if I don’t get anything back its because I made enough damn money to live comfortably and what I paid in taxes will be repurposed to help people who did not.

    Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

    Jesus: What a shame.

    Gaza, 17 July 2014 (by Saaed Rafiq Al Madhoun, CARE International Programme Officer)

    My boy is only three years old. He feels stressed and depressed and last night after hearing the explosions he said to my wife, “I feel that I will die”.

    He is only three-years old. It makes us so sad. It was such a terrible surprise to hear him say this, we feel very bad.

    He says he is feeling sick, at the noise of the explosions. He is crying at night and cannot sleep, so my wife and I try to massage him to calm him down.

    My wife is very afraid for the children. She is able to feed my five-month old baby but it is stressful.

    We feel that there is no safe place – any movement outside and you could be targeted. If I go to my brother’s house, are we any safer there?

    The water gets cut off when there is no electricity. I’m trying to keep reserves of water – we need to be able to sterilise things for the baby when we can.

    I left the home to do some shopping during the ceasefire, to get some basics for my kids. We have just a short period of time before it starts again. It was very crowded in the streets because of the limited time. The prices were normal but there was not very much available.

    I also went to check on the CARE office to see that it was OK. I want to go back to work to help support all of the vulnerable people. I am more than happy to do this but it is difficult because we cannot move without being targeted.

    If this situation continues like now it will be a real crisis. We don’t know when it will finish. I am really hoping for a long-term ceasefire and that it will calm down.

    It’s hard for my family, for my friends and colleagues, for all Gazans to live in this crisis. We just hope it will end soon. In six years there have been three wars.

    It’s difficult for all of us, but especially the children.

    I ask the world, and all of the humanitarian community, to try to make a ceasefire that will last for years not hours. We ask that the violence stops. We cannot continue living in this situation, but we also cannot leave Gaza.

    We ask the world to make it stop and do their best for the people of Gaza. It is enough now.

    Staten Island man dies after NYPD cop puts him in chokehold — SEE THE VIDEO

    A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

    “I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

    Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

    “When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.

    She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.

    “I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

    and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
