Each family is beautiful, unique, and loving in it's own way. Life can be tricky and sometimes we have to get creative, step outside the box, and go a path that may not seem conventional to get to where we ultimately want to be. I have so much love for both of these humans. FAMILY is what we are and will always be. No matter what ❤️💯 #nojudgments#nohate#onlylove
New badges made. I had just enough pieces left to make the 6 I wanted. "Hate Has No Home Here' and "#NoHate " in honour of my friend @njbornvtstrong and her friends in Vermont who are working for migrant rights and against prejudice. "No bad women, just bad laws" (in favour of legalising and regulating sex work).
Christopher Hitchens: "Religion poisons everything". "Abolish the monarchy".
'Hope Not Hate' logo.
I was a little skeptical on whether I wanted to post this or not. I literally just threw together the video and I just was listening to someone sing this song and I figured out the notes very quickly. It was rushed so please no hate. I would make a better one be I have to go somewhere. //this is violin but I also play viola.

Afghanistan is home to over 90% of the worlds opium supply. The CDC reports that heroin use in the United States has risen 63% from 2002-2013. It is no secret that the main reason why we still have troops in Afghanistan is so we can continue to control the supply of heroin. But why would we want to control the supply of heroin? Two reasons, one, the CIA can make lots of money by trafficking drugs, this money can be used to fund covert operations. This happened with crack cocaine during the late 80’s and 90’s alongside the Iran-Contra affair. As long as the war on drugs continues in the United States, there will be higher demand for illegal drugs throughout the world. The second reason is that by controlling the supply of heroin, the United States can use it as a weapon against our adversaries like Russia and China, by addicting the population. Both Russia, and Iran are in the middle of a heroin addiction crisis. Unfortunately, a lot of the heroin that we are controlling in Afghanistan is making its way to the United States as well. Anybody who looks past the American propaganda can see that the war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with our freedom, and everything to do with controlling the supply of heroin in order to use it for geopolitical reasons
We have a homemade sandwich board sign in front of our house that says, "WE WILL STAND UP FOR Y/OUR RIGHTS." Since the November '16 election, it has been knocked over and placed face-down (multiple times), stolen, returned, and has had bags of dog feces left in front of, and hung over it. A few days ago, we discovered that dog feces were spread on it, accompanied by 4 bags of feces along the bottom. Obviously someone feels so deeply threatened by this statement of solidarity, that they are lowering themselves to playing with poop. Regardless, we cleaned up the mess and moved our sign to a more prominent spot of the driveway. Today, we discovered the sandwich board on the ground, broken. Isn't it amazing that even here in our liberal, open-minded bubble of #Oakland , there are still those who are so deeply threatened by words of unity that they miss the fact the sign says we will fight for THEIR rights too? We just installed our first ever security camera in this spot with hopes to catch our long-term vandal. How we compassionately engage with them after is still being brainstormed by A and me.

Maybe I'm exploiting my own butt like a shiny fishing lure for this post or maybe I just know what's up when it comes to the colossal ass-worship engrained in our modern social structure and I'm using my butt power to effectively draw more attention to the larger uplifting message plus maybe I'm feeling myself MAYBE IDK THO
