This Easter is the 96th anniversary of the atrocious Armenian Genocide. It’s really sad how the American government puts politics over humanity. Aren’t we supposed to be better than that?
I’m also glad that the Kardashian sisters are brining attention to this by tweeting to their 8 million+ followers. I was reading Kim’s Facebook page a while back and came across a post from this girl from Turkey, saying that the Armenian genocide is a lie because if it were to be true, it would be in their history books. The ignorance got me so angry I had to stop reading.
As for all the Armenians who voted for Obama because he would recognize the Armenian genocide, -_-.
So we all know the story of Jack Kevorkian and his promotion of euthanasia. While some refer to him as “Dr. Death,” supporters argue that “idiosyncrasies aside — Kevorkian is a hero who helped more than 130 terminally ill people end their own lives with dignity.”
I don’t care to debate whether or not euthanasia is okay. What I do find interesting is that Kevorkian never went to jail for his claim of helping over 125 people with assisted suicides, because Michigan does not have a direct assisted suicide ban. The only reason he did go to jail (for 8 years) was for killing a disabled person on national television. During this time he also wrote a book, which has now been turned into an HBO movie and will be debuted on April 24th. The movie is titled, “You Don’t Know Jack,” and Al Pacino will be playing Kevorkian.
Now, is it just me, or is it weird that they decided to debut the movie on April 24th?
This is really old but has never failed to make me laugh. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’ve been one deprived child. But rest assured, I’m here to save the day!
In case you haven’t seen it yet, one of the reasons why I love W…
The picture says it all. I still can’t believe that so many people were stupid enough to vote for him… twice. With the exception of the two crazy socialists, ANY of the other candidates would have done a better job than Villaraigosa, including Zuma Dogg (haha).
How do you feel about Villaraigosa?
Generally you hear stories of birds taking a dump, or dogs peeing on people… but this is the first time I’ve heard about a monkey peeing on a person. It’s pretty hilarious.
Zambian President Rupiah Banda was at a press conference when a monkey sitting above him in a tree urinated on him.
“‘You (monkey) have urinated on my jacket,’ Banda told the animal, according to the New York Daily Times. He then smoothly — for one upon whom a monkey has just urinated — continued his address to those assembled for the press conference.”
The monkey was probably marking its territory.
Ever had an animal pee/take a dump on you?
I was walking to class at UCLA when all of a sudden I saw a big group of people protesting with signs and native drums. I had no idea what was going on, and what I got out of the two seconds I spent speaking with one of the guys, they were upset that Native Americans were underrepresented at UCLA. The guy also told me that they were against the passing of Proposition 209, which removed affirmative action out of California schools.
Proposition 209 largely prohibited state and local governments from classifying people by race or ethnicity, making school administrations look at applicants “holistically” instead of dividing up the sections of the application between people. This makes sense because it makes the school officials get a better understanding of the student, along with any hardships they may have encountered. It’s a great idea and I don’t understand why people have a problem with it. If anything, the holistic approach benefits the “minorities” because if they had any obstacles they encountered, it is better understood by the reader as they put the puzzle pieces together.
I asked the guy why someone who is more qualified should be rejected just so another student gets accepted for the mere fact of their race, and all he said to me was, “yeah, that’s what everyone says, I don’t know.” The dude was protesting and he didn’t even know why he was doing it. I’m sorry, but if one person is more qualified than another, it makes no sense to choose the less qualified person just because of their race… that’s what makes things racist! Asians are also minorities, but you don’t see them be considered a part of the bracket. And if that’s the approach we’re going to take, we’re all minorities because none of us can say that we are true Natives except for the Native Americans. Affirmative Action is just bologna and unfair.
How do you feel about it?
