I can’t stand it to think my life is going so fast and I’m not really living it. Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises (via larmoyante)

(via khadds)

I am 60 years old, and I have never in my life seen such widespread violence and cruelty. The U.S. government has more people in prison than any other country in the world, and it is now actively involved in creating prisons all over the world. Abu Gharib is only the tip of the iceberg. People all over the world are being imprisoned in secret prisons, with no formal charges being made against them. They are imprisoned under the most inhumane conditions, and detained for indeterminate periods of time, with no rights, no trials, and no justice whatsoever. In short, the leaders of this country are war criminals. All the U.S. government has to do is call them terrorists or extremists, enemy combatants or whatever and they can do anything they want to these people. I live in Cuba, and the Cuban people watch horrified, as the U.S. Army illegally occupies their land in Guantanamo and commits unspeakable acts of torture on their soil, in the name of “freedom.” The U.S. government not only destroys the lives of people around the world, many mothers have cried because many of our young people have had their lives destroyed as well. I believe that this earth was meant for tenderness and not terror. The imperialist countries not only implement terrorist policies in the Third World, their actions also provoke terrorist activities and internal disputes between people. I believe that when Western governments learn to respect the sovereignty of Third world governments, and to offer solidarity and support rather that imperialist policies and exploitation, most of the world’s problems will be close to being solved.

A clip from the news program, “Democracy Now!” with Amy Goodman. Angela Davis and Assata Shakur’s lawyer discuss the FBI adding her to the Terrorist List as a “Most Wanted”. This creates an open invention for anyone in either the U.S. or Cuba where she’s been living for the past forty years to kill her or kidnap her for a large sum of money. 

She poses no threat to the U.S. and never had. She was accused of a crime she couldn’t have committed and is now targeted as a terrorist for no purpose at all. When I heard about this I had to check my calendar to make sure it wasn’t April Fools day. This pretty much allow the FBI to label anybody of any race a terrorist and put a ten million dollar bounty on them.

THE ‘OTHER SIDE’ OF SANDY NOT SEEN ON TV OR IN NEWSPAPERS. Sandy also struck CUBA, HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Images that you will not see in the newspapers or on TV. There are now many more homeless people in Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic suffering from the ravages of hurricane Sandy passing through their respective nations, prior to the hurricane also pummeling the east coast of the United States. In solidarity with all people, in light of the loss of their homes and loved ones, we must also speak out for them. Pain and suffering does not care about borders and true compassion has no flag to wave. Our hearts are with all who are impacted by this international tragedy. Please become more informed and support the efforts of groups attempting to help lives everywhere, who know no borders. Image of Orlando Barria (EFE) in the La Barquita, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, October 26, 2012 (A.E.L.L.A.)

It’s nice to see how the Americans are doing, but American TV had a few days to air this on TV and have us somehow keep these people in prayer as well or donate to Red Cross, I guess before we got hit. These small homes truly are wrecked forever and us, we got a couple flooded casinos in Atlantic City. Sad about the death though. But if America biggest worry are casinos and the NYC Stock Exchange being flooded, then that’s just greedy. So if people homes are flooded, who cares, but if any place that has money gets flooded that like really bad. Did Bank of America call yo mama and say, “We no longer take wet dollar bills” or something??? Made my point. Reblog or Like if you agree with me.
