i’m staying away from tumblr until people are done with this “hail hydra” kick like it’s some kind of joke. jewish people (and people from other groups targeted during the holocaust) have been saying that they are extremely disturbing, not funny, and should not be a trend, especially considering the events that have occurred in the last week amongst the jewish community. if you’ve seen someone say the whole “hail hydra” thing makes them uncomfortable and you still reblog the jokes or make them yourself, then you are disrespecting their wishes and thereby are asserting that your right to make a joke is more important that their right to feel safe. this behavior, as far as I’m concerned, makes you an antisemite.
*sighs* the point of that map post is to bring some attention to a shitty side of KXL that most people - proponents and environmentalists alike - ignore. The environmental costs of KXL get a LOT of media coverage, even by people just trying to dismiss those concerns. NO ONE outside of the native community seems to care that KXL is a gross violation of indigenous treaty rights - not the news media, not the politicians, not the environmentalists, and not the people on tumblr.
Being internet smart is like the 21st century version of being street smart.
Okay Dad, these are the websites you use to watch your show.
Sockshare, Putlocker, gorillavid, nosvideo and novamov are your friends, stick to them and you know you’re okay.
DO NOT click on anything that wants you to download updates or DivX.
DO NOT click on adverts on the side.
And be very cautious of fake play buttons.
You are ready. Go forth and watch Dexter.

The Keystone XL oil pipeline would pass through multiple Indian reservations, which were formed under treaties that promised undisturbed lands. As the nations residing in those reservations have not approved the construction of KXL, any attempt to proceed with construction would be a violation of these pre-existing treaties.

The map in the post is one I made by putting a transparent map of the KXL route over a map of reservation territories in the US. The KXL route either came from the BBC or Indian Country Today Media Network, and I think the reservation map came from Wikipedia. I made this over a year ago, so I don’t remember the name of the original article that caught my interest.
speaking of petitions this one is really important and i don’t think anybody who hasn’t dealt with ppl who live with diabetes understands just how important it is
insulin is a monthly cost to people living with type 1 diabetes. they have to pay 12 months out of every year (many out of pocket bc so many people are still going without health insurance) for something that literally keeps them alive. for the rest of their lives. not having insulin is legitimately a life or death situation for these people.
and even at the cheapest i’ve seen, ~20$, it’s still out of reach for many people living with type 1.
my mom has this friend name joe. he has a relatively good paying job. but between taking care of his roommate, paying bills, AND paying for this ridiculously overpriced medicine he HAS to have, he is literally barely scraping by. we have had to send food money to him on numerous occasions because he could either pay for his insulin after bills or groceries. it’s already a well-known fact that the healthcare system sucks over here but insulin is legitimately a NECESSITY for these people. and they can’t be paying upwards 100$ every single month + paying bills + buying food + caring for any families they may have.
this is super important and even lowering it a little could be extremely helpful to some.
this is incredibly important to me. please sign.
