Oh wait now I get what triggers are
Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.
thank you Wreck It Ralph
Reblogging for valuable commentary
reblogging again. forever.
Stop what you are doing.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
Oh my fucking god.
A while back my dad got a huge fine for trying to sell some of our old junk out near the street “without a license.” Fucking bullshit.
I love how Obama managed to contradict the words of our founders, a good number of political philosophers from the enlightenment, and one of the most popular presidents of the 20th century (Reagan of course) in just two sentences.
But…but…but! HE BELIEVES IN HOPE AND CHANGE!!!!
Yeah, he’s so much smarter than the people who founded the country and created our system of government.
I thought this guy was supposed to be a constitutional law professor, once upon a time. I guess he got their through something other than his smarts, because apparently he never read it.
Really, John? You like paying taxes for schools even though you don’t have kids?
First of all, dope, you don’t have an option. Either you pay them or go to jail. No one likes paying taxes, no matter how full of statist bullshit they are.
Secondly, I’m sure it gives your bouffant great comfort when you see that kids graduating high school can’t read. That’s certainly not stupid, right?
Give me a fucking break. Stick to being a boring pablum generic white guy on the internet and leave policy discussions to people who have a clue what’s going on.
I feel like as a historian its disingenuous to see taxes as anything more than they historically are: tribute.
