The Nation will not be the organ of any party, sect, or body. It will, on the contrary, make an earnest effort to bring to the discussion of political and social questions a really critical spirit, and to wage war upon the vices of violence, exaggeration, and misrepresentation by which so much of the political writing of the day is marred. -- from The Nation's founding prospectus, 1865
A People's Platform for the Democratic Party - we propose six more planks for a People’s Platform—one grounded in current activism and animated by the belief that the party must define itself in a more boldly progressive direction.

Five Overlooked Battles in the War on Women (5/4 via http://www.thenation.com/blog/167700/five-overlooked-battles-war-women)
Ending the US War in Yemen: With a Western withdrawal from Afghanistan “irreversible” according to NATO, the Pentagon and CIA’s focus is increasingly concentrated on Yemen, where diplomatic or political solutions are impossible anytime soon.
The article from The Nation is all about the events of several people and their lives. Each story is different and contains how each fought hard for what they sought after. They all accomplished the American Dream and have proved that success is possible through determination and hard work.

The Post Office Is Not Broke though Republicans are trying to bankrupt it. We shouldn't loose Saturday service. "[The post office] “significantly exceeded” the level of reserved money that the federal government or private corporations divert to meet future pension and retiree healthcare demands. “Using ratepayer funds, it has built a war chest of over $326 billion to address its future liabilities,”" http://www.thenation.com/blog/166103/post-office-not-broke#

Our priority should be caring for the families... not political. Although I might note that this sort of thing is inherently political and it's a matter of HOW we politicize it rather than WHETHER we politicize it.
This is one of the first things I thought when my Facebook blew up after the school shootings. Do people seriously have no heart? Raving about their guns were their only reflection on the whole horrific event.
Your first thought should be, "HOW CAN I RIGHT THE WRONGS!! HOW CAN I MAKE GUN VIOLENCE STOP KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE?"
exactly. please know what the fuck you're actually talking about before going in on this matter, or Politics in general.
Agreed. The loss of life is more important than your precious right to bear arms and should be remembered, honored and grieved properly before a debate on gun control ensues.
As a gun owner and someone who goes target shooting frequently, gun control is a GOOD thing.
TRUTH! And I like guns

Perhaps you should consider this thought when you claim to be a good Christian, and forget about the things you've done but point at others doings.
Actions speak louder than words and show what you truly believe in your heart. Your true beliefs dictate your actions.
Words are cheap and you can tell a lot about a person by their Actions.... Remember one's Actions speak louder than insincere words.
Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does.
Actions speak far more than a set of 'beliefs'
Actions speak words. Be a better human being!

Actions speak louder than words!!!
I know o might have been late to do so. But I can't lie anymore. Even though I love you as a brother, I can't hide the truth anymore. It's killing me. And now you call me such harsh things. I never called you anything. Only was honest to one. Only one, that you hurt me. I never meant for you to find out. But life hates me.

Funny how people tend to feel like you're "not who they thought you were" when you stand up for yourself. Sad, really.
Standing Up for yourself! Shows that you have more in you than you could ever know. Don't ever doubt your decision for choosing to fight for your life. I fought and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do but! I did it! :)
ha! my ex is totally saying this about me… o-well… grab your balls and speak the truth and I wouldn't have had to stand up for myself… sad thing is, I know you will come back.. maybe a day, maybe years… but you will be back
Standing up for yourself...does it make you a bitch, or just an amazing woman standing in her truth??!!!
Funny thing -- I became a bitch the minute you became a liar. What a coincidence!
Funny how that works. ... stand up for yourself and you're the bitch.

| http://pinterest.com/toddrsmith/boards/ | - It okay to be angry, It's never okay to be cruel. - [ #S0FT ]
.I need to remind myself of this when I'm angry. B/c that's when I can be cruel and say mean things.
Angry says that you care. Cruel says that you care more about yourself than the person you are hurting.
I was angry. How could I not? You led me on. That's a cruel thing to do. I have a right to be angry you know. You're the one who hurt me. And you say I'm the one whose acting like a 5 year old? First you hurt me, and spread false lies about me? Who do you think you are? You two deserve each other. I know things you don't think I would know. She's hurt you. That doesn't mean you get to hurt me. You'll see one day. You'll see.
It is okay to be angry. It is NEVER okay to be cruel. quotes. wisdom. advice. life lessons.
So true. Even when angry think carefully about what you say. Those words cannot be unspoken.
This is true. Everyone, at some point, gets angry. Yet I'm not sure I will ever understand the person that wants to intentionally hurt people...intentionally cause harm. This is especially true when they themselves do not live perfect lives and sometimes should try to understand a different perspective. They have committed their own mistakes and sins...and may not even realize what they are and the effect it had on others. Understand why. Understanding why does not have to mean you agree. In the end, there is no good in having intent to hurt.
I'm pro choice simply because the quality of life a child will have after birth is way more important to me. They can't choose their parents but we can choose when we're ready to be parents.

Inconsistent puritanical assholes shoving pro life on women everywhere. And to top it all off they also condemn birth control! #prolife #prochoice After they are born, they crawl back under their rock and then protest to remove funding to help that life not be abused and neglected. ...as they drive nice cars, dress in new clothes and go to church to hear how to be more like Jesus.
Pro choice. I am nine months pregnant and still fully support a woman's right. This is a reason I am pro choice.

I am Pro Life. I am ALSO against letting children, minimum wage earners, the disabled, and the elderly starve to death. I am against letting anyone die from lack of medical treatment. I am against guns. I am against WAR. And I am against the people who care only about women's reproduction, but not about MEN. You do not see anybody on the religious right talk about vasectomies, condoms or Viagra, do you?

people need to understand that overpopulation is a real thing. lol i don't care what you say. mind your own!!!!!
Just because I am pro choice does not mean that I am pro abortion. It means I understand that your choice is none of my damn business and I will always fight for your right to choose. (this is what it truly means to be an American--letting your fellow American live their lives as free people, not dictating to them)
Just because I am pro choice does not mean I am pro abortion. It means I understand that your choice is none of my damn business, and I will always fight for your right to chose. I'm pro abortion in certain cases. The world isn't just black and white. There are shades of grey in everything.

Morality vs. religion.
Religion, Quotes, Atheism, Truth, Thought, True, Atheist
There is a lot of truth in this. This is why Christians that follow the bible don't necessarily like religion. The bible is morally correct. Certain Religions leave out parts of the bible and make their own rules. ( I love the quotes // hate the illustration )
#atheist #atheism #agnostic #agnosticism #christian #christianity #muslim #islam #moral #religion / http://www.contactchristians.com/atheist-atheism-agnostic-agnosticism-christian-christianity-muslim-islam-moral-religion/
A common misconception is that Atheists have no morals. This is completely false. Atheists believe in doing what is right. No matter what any book written thousands of years ago says. No matter what is tradition, or what other people say. I believe in truth and what is right.
"Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told regardless of what is right." TRUE.
I dont like the anti-religion signs at the top but the words are true. Jesus came here spreading love and peace. He cared about humanity and was even loving to his enemies. We should follow that path not the paths of one or another religion that sometimes shun certain people, beliefs, or lifestyles! Do the right thing that is where you will find the higher power!!
morality v. religion True Christianity is not following, believing and doing what you are told. Don't make someone else define what your faith is think and search it out for yourself. Then, it become your faith and not someone else's and regardless of what you find.
morality ≠ religion; religion ≠ morality, while true, one is a code, one is dependent on a spiritual power... But this is really sad, because life is not black and white. And morality is compleeeetely Relative. What is RIGHT? Discuss. Don't judge.
morality v. religion Unfortunately, Religion , for many, is following, believing and doing what you are told. However, morality is a personal thing. Don't make someone else define what your faith is about think and search it out for yourself. Then, it become your faith and not someone else's and regardless if you find a god,something else or nothing. Unfortunately, for many religious people, the statement is true and in a perfect world it shouldn't be. For lack of a better word there are "amoral" people of faith and those who have different beliefs.
Morality vs. religion... deep thoughts.
I love how the term used for women who would be a shoe-in for "the bad girls club" is now used for women who aren't sweet and soft spoken all the time. You pounce on my family, my faith or something that I believe STRONGLY on the contrary- you'll see my inner beast.

BITCHOLOGY being bitch means I stand up for myself and my belief, I stand up for those I love. I speak my mind, think my own thoughts, do things my way, won't compromise what's in my heart, live my life my way, won't allow anyone to step on me, refuse to tolerate injustice. It means I have the courage & strength to allow myself to be me. So try to stomp on the, douse my inner flame, squash every ounce of beauty I hold within. You won't succeed. And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.

Homosexuality is found in over 450 species. Homophobia is found in only one. Which one seems unnatural now?
What has never made sense to me is how people can defend their opposition to homosexuality. I mean, I personally don't care; why does everyone else? It really annoys me, to be honest, that some people believe that they're better than others because of their orientation. Yes, you have rights to your beliefs, so why are you trying to force others to follow them? Does "Liberty and Justice for all" mean anything to you? I'm sorry. I just don't understand why we must bicker about trivial things.
You don't have to be gay to support gay rights. Just food for thought.
