There is seriously no logical reason to kill these beautiful endangered creatures unless one was coming to attack you. Hunting specifically for sport purposes is one of the most disgusting things ever.
This is F~ Up…

The Cheapest Generation: Why Aren’t Millennials Buying Cars or Houses?
What if Millennials’ aversion to car-buying isn’t a temporary side effect of the recession, but part of a permanent generational shift in tastes and spending habits? It’s a question that applies not only to cars, but to several other traditional categories of big spending—most notably, housing. And its answer has large implications for the future shape of the economy—and for the speed of recovery.

It’s safe to say that a decent number of Tumblr users are a part of the Millennial generation. So, tell us: Do you own a car or house? If not, why?
IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO DISPOSABLE INCOME YOU THUNDERING IDIOTS. Fucking preference has nothing to do with it. 50% of college graduates have no job! They all have the most student loan debt ever! What are you asking this question for?!
Also: housing is a good bit more expensive now.
My parents got a 15-year mortgage on a new house in the mid-70s. The house was $32,000. Average home price in that area now? $190,000.
So, home prices went up. Food prices went up. Health care prices went WAY UP. Rent prices went up. Higher education went up so damn high that some of us forgo that all together. Energy prices went up. Car prices went up.
Prices of prices went up.
We also pay cell phone bills, internet bills, data plans, text plans, online subscriptions, cable/satellite tv, netflix, DVR subscriptions — bills that didn’t even exist 30-40 years ago. We also use computers and smartphones and microwaves and other consumer electronics that didn’t exist 20-50 years ago.
We need medications and doctors and contact lenses and tampons and maxi pads and other things that cost money just to be alive and keep us healthy.
Most of us can’t afford to:
- Get married and have a “Traditional” big wedding
- Buy a house
- Buy a new car
- PLAN to have children
- Take two, consecutive weeks of vacation.
Jobs that paid 50k in the late 1990s now pay between 30-35. Interest rates that favor consumers have gone down.
So I say, no. We are not choosing not to buy homes. We’re not choosing to take the bus in cities where there’s no good public transit. WE ARE NOT CHOOSING TO LIVE WHAT SOCIETY DEEMS AS AN UNDESIRABLE LIFESTYLE.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that these two people in the picture are young white hipsters. Young black and brown folks have been forgoing homeownership and buying new cars for decades, this shit isn’t new, pal. You’re just acting like this shit is new because it’s hitting white folks.
anyway, my point is: We are fucking broke.
Im a once misguided low income black/Spanish girl who decided to attend a private liberal arts college, thinking school was the ticket out of poverty. I graduated and moved back home with dept about as high as most people’s yearly salaries. It’s been four years and I’m still home, lucky enough to have done a year at City Year (low wage), temp at city parks (low wage), and now work as a “sales girl” at a clothing store (low low wage). Buying a car, even used, would be a dream, traveling Europe would be a dream, cross country tour would be a dream..

For awhile I have liked “Teen Jesus Freaks” on Facebook, well because they love Jesus and I love Jesus. Buut they are against GLBT relations, aka “homosexuality.” I once responded to a post awhile back on this issue and as a result they have banned me from posting. Today I saw a post on Facebook from them explaining how one admin was healed from the “generational curse” of “homosexuality” by Jesus. I felt upset, so I tried sending them a private note on the matter. Unfortunately, my private messages had been blocked as well. Here is my failed sent note:
"Re: Post about "homosexuality":
Please don’t take my message as trolling. I understand that you will disagree with me, but I just want to share my feelings. I am a bit concern about the post on homosexuality = generational curse and/or sin. I believe the “generational curse” is simply genes that make a few in society GLBT. This hereditary condition is not wrong, simply natural as studied by scientists. I don’t think GLBT people are living in sin, even if they fall in love with someone of the same gender. I’m sure God love them as well and understand true love from the heart. I’m sure the same rule applies, ie, no casual sex or disrespect. What’s important is true love and respect in a loving relationship.
I love Jesus just as much as many people on this page do. On the other hand, I know my view of Him is very different, especially on this matter. It really really saddens me when people say they are not gay anymore due to Jesus. It makes it seem that Jesus looks down on GLBT people and their lifestyle.
Surprising there are a very very few Christians out there who share these views with me (progressives) and really look into the bible and its historical context on such matters. Again, I understand you most likely disagree with me, but I really felt like I needed to share this.”
There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care

FOR THOSE IN THE PHILIPPINES
Communications are down. Electricity is non-existant. Water and food are nowhere to be found. The people were so hungry and desperate to survive that they are looting from shopping malls and stores. Children were dying of starvation. Women were weeping. Men can’t do anything but watch their family suffer and die. If you ever watched some of the clips of the aftermath, you’ll literally cry. Everyone was crying, calling for relatives that they’re alright. Some people were even asking for forgiveness because they didn’t save their families. Some places that was damaged by the storm previously experienced earthquake that brought their houses down. Some evacuation centers that they thought were safe was flooded, causing children from dying. People are holding their dead families, sobbing and asking for forgiveness. They were shouting out of despair.
They don’t need money. They need food, water, medicine, clothes and a sign of hope.
We need help. They need help, everything will be appreciated. YOU MIGHT SAVE A LIFE. Please, reblog and spread the word.

#waiting till marriage
Article on abstinence: The guy in the article was quite judgemental and unprofessional on the health teacher who believes people should accept/embrace different sexual expressions. He makes those who practice abstinence look very mean. The teacher is right, in terms of accepting different (legal of course) expressions and not judging others. At the same time, the guy is right in terms of the deep meaning of sexual activities. I believe these things create spiritual bonds as well as chemical bonds via activities in the brain. This is not limited to stereotypical Christianity, but people of all faiths/lack of and sexual orientations. It isn’t something that should be taken lightly and should be reserve for very deep committed relationships such as marriage. Many people may not want to wait for that and that’s their business. Both sides shouldn’t harshly judge, but they should consider the repercussions of taking lightly actions that could alter one’s psych. Ironically I’ve recently been told to live my life already and that I’m already 26yrs and I do feel judgement/pressure from our “free sex” society. I honestly don’t like how our society is today since it is brainwashing so many to enjoy emotionless/selfish sexual activities. At the same time, neither side are angels in judgement. And judgement from the abstinence side just makes abstinence look more like a lost cause to many, instead of a way to develop a deep loving bond with your significant other.
"We’re told that we are sexually “liberated” if we throw ourselves at strangers and give ourselves over to people who couldn’t possibly care less about us. This is yet another lie." ~ Matt, article
"God isn’t tired of you. He doesn’t actually get tired. He isn’t waiting for you to impress Him. He actually wants you to come to Him, so HE can impress YOU with how much He loves and cares for you."
