U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.
The U.S. funds genocide, plain & simple.

"Poverty is not fate, it is a condition; it is not a misfortune, it is an injustice. It is the result of social structures and mental and cultural categories, it is linked to the way in which society has been built, in its various manifestations."
People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.
You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.
I love orange is the new black.
I’m so fucking excited. I ordered clothes online and I thought it would take like a month to get here and then the tracker said it couldn’t find my package but then I just checked and its so close. omg so close. It could be here tomorrow if the USPS doesn’t fail me.
Imagine this: Someone moves into your neighborhood and, every 10 seconds, fires off an airgun that’s louder than a jet engine…
And it goes on for weeks or months at a time. It’s painful and debilitating, so loud that some of your neighbors go deaf, others die.
If you’re a whale, dolphin or sea turtle living off the Atlantic Coast, the Obama administration has just made that nightmare a reality.
Last week, the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management opened up offshore waters from Delaware to Florida to oil and gas exploration. I’m sure that’s good news for the oil and gas industry (which already gets more than $4 billion in tax credits and subsidies from the U.S. government) but thousands of marine animals will pay a very terrible price.

The Israel Broadcasting Authority (IBA) has censored a radio clip naming children killed in Gaza, due to its “politically controversial” content, Haaretz reported Thursday.
Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, which prepared the censored broadcast, appealed against the decision but the IBA once again refused to run the clip.
According to Haaretz, the broadcast reveals the fact that children have been killed in Gaza since Israel’s Protective Edge operation began 17 days ago, reading out some of their names.
“So far more than 600 people have been killed in bombings in Gaza, more than 150 of them children. But apart from a brief report on the number of fatalities, the Israeli media refrains from covering them," B’Tselem said in a statement cited by Haaretz.
According to the UN, over the past two days in Gaza, one Palestinian child has been killed every hour.
I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!
