UN warns that famine could overwhelm country in next three months, with 13 million people at risk of starvation
Bernie Sanders was the only senator to vote against Trump’s large military budget.
All Dems, knowing that part of it would go toward funding Saudi Arabia’s war, voted for it. Bernie Sanders tried to pass a resolution to stop U.S aid to the war, but Democrats defeated it.
US munitions make the horror possible.

Glad to see my lifelong disinterest in golf is paying off
let me tell you about golf
i grew up in a little desert valley called Tucson, Arizona, where it only rains 2 inches a year on average. the majority of the city’s water is pumped from an underground aquifer, which took millions of years to fill. one of the biggest conservation efforts in our city was for water, naturally, and i spent a lot of time learning about low flow toilets and 5 minute showers. i learned that filling your sink basin and washing your dishes in that water is less costly than running the tap. i learned that it only takes 2 days without water on the desert for someone to die
the city was sinking as the aquifer drained. neighborhoods fell into flood zones that didnt exist 10 years ago
there’s a road called Golf Links in the city and it is lined with golf courses. miles of green grass where grass doesn’t grow, in a valley where it doesn’t rain. why? because the rich white retirees who moved there to stop the aching in their joints decided they should also get to play golf. meanwhile our public schools taught small children like me that taking long showers would kill the world
let the golf industry burn
There are 15,500+ golf courses in the United States alone.
Each one consumes ~312,000 gallons of water per day.
That consumption is equivalent to 55+ million humans per day in the United States… roughly 1/6 the entire population.
We simply cannot sustain this frivolity, especially for something 99% of us will never use.
Destroy golf courses and plant wild grasses and butterfly bushes in their place.
Story idea when you try to actually write it:
Story idea when you first rewrite it:
Getting closer to what you saw in your head, eh? Keep at it!
Your story when somebody else sees it:
This is a lovely post. It goes to show that when we percieve our own work, most of us have some type of insecurities about our own talents.
Also possibly relevant is that probably when Van Gogh finished Starry Night, he jumped up and down in frustration for a while because it didn’t look as good as it had in his head.
Tolkien used to complain that he could never write anything as well as he could imagine it. So you know, ‘good enough’ is definitely a thing.
That’s the exact spot where I realized that she played the mom on suite life of zack and cody
thats the exact moment i realised sam had no idea what a ‘mom voice’ was

Sam didn’t have a mom? Excuse me,
Let’s not ferget the parenting skills he displayed with a baby, we can only assume he honed those from when he took care of Sam:
