Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians
July 24, 2014

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.

America’s major news channels can’t afford to take a side, the second we say that Israel is scum (which they are) we have a whole new set of problems on our hands that we can’t afford, you know with us currently still involved in hopeless Afghanistan and what looks to be WWIII looming on the horizon. Israel being an ally of the US for decades has brought all sorts of problems for us, and this is just the latest of those problems. There’s not a single (logical) American soul that doesn’t cry out for help for the hundreds being killed, but the crazy times are instilling fear into Americans that maybe those same shells will be dropped on our schools and our children.

I’m afraid you misunderstand the situation. The U.S. isn’t afraid of Israel’s military power. The U.S. created Israel’s military power and uses it as a foothold in the region to further acts of imperialism/domination (mostly for oil). The U.S. gives Israel 3 billion dollars every year in military aid to that end. That’s $8,219,178 every. single. day.

In 1988, polio was endemic in 125 countries. Since then, tremendous advances have been made. And while there is no cure for polio, eradication is possible—and within reach, thanks to vaccinations.

help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful

DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL 

yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable

There are good reasons for any species to think darkly of its own extinction. Ninety-nine percent of the species that have lived on Earth have gone extinct, including more than five tool-using hominids. A quick glance at the fossil record could frighten you into thinking that Earth is growing more dangerous with time. If you carve the planet’s history into nine ages, each spanning five hundred million years, only in the ninth do you find mass extinctions, events that kill off more than two thirds of all species.

But this is deceptive. Earth has always had her hazards; it’s just that for us to see them, she had to fill her fossil beds with variety, so that we could detect discontinuities across time. The tree of life had to fill out before it could be pruned.
