This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.   
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous. 
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.

Incredible.

Israel has used 50,000 missiles in Gaza, killing almost 1,500 PalestiniansAugust 2, 2014
Official Palestinian sources and human rights organisations monitoring the horrors of war inflicted on the people of the Gaza Strip by Israel for almost 4 weeks have released some startling statistics.
Dubbed Operation Protective Edge, Israel launched its offensive on the pretext of stopping the Palestinian rockets fired in response to the Israeli occupation. Tunnels used by Hamas have also been a target, claim the Israelis.
However, speaking to Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, Palestinian Health Ministry spokesman Ashar Qudra pointed out that the Israeli war machine has killed 1,458 Palestinians, including 330 children, 170 women and 60 elderly people; 8,375 people, including 2510 children, 1630 women and 310 elderly have been wounded. Almost all are civilians.
The Minister for Public Works and Housing, Mofeed Al-Hasayneh, said that the Israeli aggression has destroyed 5,238 housing units and partially-damaged 30,050. Twelve homes belonging to senior Hamas officials and elected parliamentarians are among those blown-up by the Israelis. Mosques, hospitals and schools have also been targeted.
Electricity supplies in Gaza are severely restricted following the bombing of the Strip’s only remaining power station. Pollution is a major health risk after the Israelis also hit waste-water treatment centres.
It is claimed that Israel has used more than 50,000 bombs in its war on the civilians of the Gaza Strip: 6,318 missiles have been fired by Air Force jets; 13,866 were fired by the navy; and 30,581 were fired by tanks and artillery stationed on the eastern border of the enclave.
In response, Palestinian resistance fighters have fired 3,000 home-made rockets towards settlements, military bases and cities across Israel. Tel Aviv airport was closed for some time as airlines cancelled flights to the Zionist state.
Meanwhile, US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced on Thursday evening that the Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry, received assurances from the Israel Defence Forces and Palestinian resistance factions to observe a 72 hour unconditional humanitarian ceasefire.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told Anadolu that the ceasefire mediated by the UN will commence on Friday, at 8:00 am local time. “The resistance factions will stick to the truce as long as Israel respects it,” he insisted.

Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.

Pro-Palestine activists hold a die-in against Israeli bank in NYC
July 26, 2014

Yesterday, about 200 people marched from the NY Public Library, through the streets of midtown, and ended up at the IDB Bank. IDB is an Israeli Bank that directly funds the occupation of Palestine, 20% owned by the State of Israel. Several activists participated in an act of civil disobedience by throwing fake blood on the windows of IDB, and then staging a sit-in on the sidewalk until they were arrested by police officers.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

I think the reason why people fear Arab speaking populations like Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan (I guess those are the three the US is focusing on right now) is because there's a very harsh and beliigerent undertone to the language and it's indicative of the people.
