Kalah. I'm a 23 year old lesbian living in the USA.
Blog is an intersection of all things feminist, lesbian, and feline.
Open to fair and reasoned discussion on a number of topics.
"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"
our hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.
If you’ve ever asked yourself whether or not you should watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer then the answer is yes. You should watch Buffy. Everyone should watch Buffy. Your family should watch Buffy. Your friends should watch Buffy. Your dog should watch Buffy. Obama should watch Buffy. The world would be a better place if everyone watched Buffy

Nah mate. The billionaire heir and heiresses who run my nation never took risk. Their risk is cushioned by the fact that even if all the mines fail and the business doesn’t work out then old Gina and Clive will still be richer than I will ever be.
Risk! What does the bourgeoisie know of risk?! Risk is going down the pit to mine diamond or cobalt for less than $1 a day, subject to mine collapses and toxic gas. Risk is the thousands of workers, even in the advanced capitalist countries, that still die in industrial accidents every year because their worksites are unsafe. Risk is the fact that unemployment for the working class means absolute destitution and a life living from welfare cheque to welfare cheque, at least before welfare is cut by conservative governments.
The workers take the risk. They build the infrastructure. They are the hired labour. They till the land. They illegally cross borders and defy laws just to find a better life for their families.
The bourgeoisie has no right to talk about risk! The world they have created is full of risk and turmoil for the working people.
Step out of your free-market fantasy. The era of small-business capitalism is dead. This is monopoly capitalism mate and it has been for over 100 years. The bosses might take the risk to make a profit but it is the state that ensures that those profits are maintained. They will subsidise and bail-out and do whatever it takes to make sure the multi-nationals stay profitable.
NEWSFLASH: the bosses don’t want a free market full of risk. They want a rigged market, rigged in their favour, with soft government contracts and subsidies and anti-union legislation which allows them to run the show.
