By Poffo Ortiz ** What's the Difference? ** The only difference between #Thanksgiving and the #Yulin dog meat festival is propaganda and extreme social #conditioning .
Every year when Yulin rolls around, #Americans lose their shit. And rightfully so- NO animal deserves or needs to be slain and eaten by us.
However, our compassion usually ends there (with dogs). We willfully ignore the fact that 46 MILLION #turkeys are bred and raised to be slaughtered for a holiday in this country, but we get up in arms that 10 thousand dogs are slaughtered for the EXACT SAME reason in #China : to be eaten.
Society teaches us that dogs and cats are 'companion animals' and it is therefore unacceptable to torture, kill and eat them... but do the same thing here to a turkey, or a pig, or a cow, or a chicken, and no ones bats an eye.
Turkeys are highly #intelligent , #sensitive , #emotional animals. They are beautiful birds that do not deserve to die for a #holiday (a holiday mind you, that was originally instituted to celebrate a Native American massacre perpetrated by the colonial invaders). What is the difference between a turkey and a dog? Only your perception.😔 (originally written by Marley Delgado, edited slightly by me)*
this isn't literal, but shows you essentially what could happen if net neutrality were to disappear. it will allow the internet to be treated like cable, where you will have to pay for basic connection and then pay extra for the bundled websites you want to access. they will also be allowed to heavily moderate content to their liking.
you do not need to be american to care about this or for it to be relevant to you, independent and smaller business will suffer if they are unable to host their websites for a reasonable price and you will not be able to access them, either.
Yalla Yalla celebrating #Thanksgiving with 42 #Americans who live in #DenBosch . #Turkey with Arabic twist with Gravey and pomme granate sauce. #Amazing evening with so much #positive vibes. We are thankful for this evening and we count our blessings to celebrate this with you. Because we at Yalla Yalla know what it means to be far away from your family.
Happy National Day of Mourning for our fellow #NativeAmericans , whose ancestors endured undeserving destruction of their culture along with massive heartbreak, abuse, enslavement and death of their people as we gather, celebrate, #givethanks and choose not to remember that part. 💔 #TruthHurts **********************************************************
Only by openly acknowledging the faults of our past, can we proceed toward a future that all #Americans can feel #thankful for. 🇺🇸 👫👭👬 I know that I’m fortunate to have the family and friends that I do. And to all of those that I didn’t get pleasure of hugging - I love and miss you. 💛🧡🍻 #thanksgiving2017#thanksgiving#happythanksgivingiguess
If you don't have a written will and you have kids, family and other things to lose, it blows my mind how these narcs think everyone is susceptible to their abuse.. Infiltrating people's freedom. Attempting to control the outcomes of people's lives negatively for their pleasure, their hate, and or greed as if they're invincible and nothing is ever going to happen to them. Putting on a front with their fake charm to whomever that they're the innocent victim when all they look to do is victimize anyone they can to feed their narcissistic supply because of their fear. Not like this is a small thing as most of the civilian population has picked up on these feminized actions. Some of course are much worse than others but in the end depending on the severity it's all in the same whether a life long or weekend warrior narc. Over 40 people get murdered every day in the US, which more often than not it's some narc playing with those they shouldn't rather than a random innocent victim. If you're not willing to punch that card out of this life given your actions towards others, whether personal, following some bureaucratic, or corporate system of things that severely effects people's lives and well being, you should check yourself cuz not everyone's playing.. Some have nothing more to lose and will die or go to prison in the process for those who like to fuck around, no different than one defending their own flesh and blood or themselves from physical harm. Narcs like to make plans to deceive others, and the same will be done in return so it'll be impossible for them to do it to anyone else ever again.. Don't trip skip it's just everyday life things.. Many seem to think they're in some eternal afterlife bubble here on earth and these things don't apply to them, then lose their minds when shit gets real.
Stay frosty... .. .
We are not free! Thanksgiving should not be a holiday. I don't celebrate this day. I know right, wtf!? One of Americas biggest holidays. Well to get a little political, have you ever thought of the correlation between pilgrams, natives, slaves, colonialism, trump, racism, thieves, murderers, rapists? To me it all goes hand in hand. Look where we are today. Look at what we are fighting for today. Its all still the same, run on lies. To me celebrating this day is not only disrespectful to the people that were murdered, raped, and their land was taken but its a cycle that we keep doing. Every year we spend tons of dollars buying excessive amounts of food, cheering on this day like it has no vicious history. Every year we say Happy Thanksgiving like it didn't destroy tribes and families. My family and I stopped celebrating this day many years ago. We still eat. I don't say Happy Thanksgiving to anyone. I will say that I am grateful EVERY single day. Today is not a day for me to go around and vocalize my gratitude. Today is a day to remember what this country really stands for. Today is a sad day for our ancestors and people true to this land. This land... This land is not free. I will not teach my boys that today is a holiday. My boys will know the truth. This mom... is real as fuck and honest. I want my sons to not only know the truth but to live a life not based on a cycle or what is considered "normal". I want them to question what should be questioned and to know that they too should respect what we may not see or hear but what is truth. .

A new #survey shows that 47 percent of adults in the United States support closing all #slaughterhouses , while 69 percent identify animal agriculture as a top #social issue #worldwide .
A new survey conducted by #nonprofit think tank Sentience Institute (SI)—in partnership with research firm Ipsos Group—found that #Americans are supportive of banning all animal slaughterhouses. This #October , a group of 1,094 adults were asked several survey questions related to factory farming, and 47 percent supported banning slaughterhouses, 33 percent supported banning all animal farming, and 69 percent identified animal agriculture as one of the most #important social issues in the #world today. The survey further revealed a disconnect between public perception and reality in terms of the pervasiveness of factory farms in the United States. While government census data shows that only one percent of animals live on non-factory farms, 75 percent of survey participants believed they consumed only humanely-raised animals 👎. “This suggests a ‘psychological refuge’ effect,” SI Research Director Jacy Reese said, “where we justify our animal product consumption by incorrectly assuming we eat ethically-produced food. This allows us to navigate the cognitive dissonance that comes from caring about animals while still eating food from factory #farms .” SI plans to conduct similar surveys in coming years to ascertain the shifting #public attitudes toward animal #agriculture as the #plantbased#food sector continues to grow and new technologies—such as “clean” meat, or animal cells grown into #meat in a lab-setting—become more readily available.
Close All Slaughterhouses 🌹

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Americans! Today is a day to be with family and to be thankful on all out good fortunes throughout the year, but we can never forget that long before Abraham Lincoln coined this holiday, it was originally the date of a violent battle between pilgrims and Indigenous Americans. This can still be a good time for Americans to come together with family, but we have to put the myth of Thanksgiving dinner to rest and remember that this is also a National Day of Mourning. So with that being said: Rest in Peace to all the Indigenous Americans that lost their lives on this day and thank you to all their ancestors for remaining strong through the centuries. And I hope that everyone had a great day amongst their families. #aum#americanunity#americanunitymovement#indigenouspeoples#americans#indians#thanksgiving#happythanksgiving
