Disabled people turned away everywhere

From Canada, to UK. to Scandinavia, to every country the U.S. should emulate, if you have a disability, don't bother trying to immigrate


Where is #The_Resistance when disabled people seeking a better life are turned away? Where are OUR airport protesters?

Delete Uber AND Lyft

"Don't let the fact that for 30 seconds. Lyft became a liberal darling under the hastag ##DeleteUber on Twitter fool you, the company hates unions. They both opposed laws in Seattle that would require drivers to be unionized. Uber went as far as to buy an ad during a Seahawks game

They also have no worker protections and no workers compensation. The way things work, is that if a driver gets hurt, they're on their own. If a driver wants to put up some protective screens (like in conventional cabs) he has to pay for it out of pocket. This can become a problem since many Uber drivers market themselves as a ride home from parties for people who are intoxicated. Several people have gotten injured this way. Additionally, they don't do much to protect customers either. There are mountains of stories of Uber and Lyft drivers committing sexual assault on their customers. The reverse is also true."


Have empathy for rural white people?

A lot of my friends of color are bristling under the idea that we should break out of our bubbles and have empathy for rural white people who are poor and have a lot of problems. This is easier said than done since by and large, until something hits THEM PERSONALLY, most rural white people have no empathy for ANYONE ELSE!

That guy who is on Disability for something not readily seen is a "moocher" until a rural white guy's family member has a similar issue

That single mother on food stamps is a "welfare queen" until a white woman from the trailer park needs food stamps

The disabled kid in school is "stealing from the gifted students" until the rural white guy has a disabled kid

Hell even our drug policy has been shaped by their wants. They were all for stringing up drug addicts by the scrotum

And they hated, hated, HATED the idea of treating drug addicts with anything other jail. Until the heroin crisis happened. Now that it was white kids going to jail for drug addiction rural Republicans were falling all over themselves to get science based addiction treatments liberals called for 20 YEARS AGO and got ridiculed.

So I can see why there are those who aren't inclined to empathize with them.

Can't think of a town more deserving of an apocalypse of some sort

While righties are decrying the lack of protesting over the quartet of dumbshits in Chicago, even though said dumbshits were hunted down enthusiastically and are being charged appropriately, they ignore THIS hate crime.

"A white Idaho high school football player who was charged with sexually assaulting a black, mentally disabled teammate in October 2015, pleaded guilty Friday to a lesser felony charge, and the sex crime charges have been dropped.

John R.K. Howard, 19, of Keller, Tex., pleaded guilty to a felony count of injury to a child and will be sentenced to two to three years of probation and up to 300 hours of community service, according to the Twin Falls Times-News. A judge will decide the final sentence in February.

The Alford plea Howard submitted allows him to maintain his innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors probably would have won a conviction against him if the case had gone to trial.

In May, the Idaho attorney generalís office filed sexual assault charges against Howard and two of his teammates at Dietrich High School, alleging that they held the victim down, shoved a coat hanger into his rectum and then kicked the hanger several times. The two other students have been charged in juvenile court."


What the story fails to mention is that the "people" of this town drove out the victim and his family with threats for daring to inconvenience a football season.

Clearly if this town were wiped the fuck out down to the last in a disaster or attack of some sort, nobody of value would be lost.
