My most popular post has received a lot of arguments lately, so I figured I’d respond to the most common points people bring up.

to get a general gist of Queen Jamillia’s and Oola’s screen time, here are the scripts for Attack of the Clones (Jamillia is in 359 word scene) and Return of the Jedi (Oola is in scenes that add up to 275 words)

Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.

This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!

I’m not crying your crying

SHE IS SO STRONG AND GRACEFUL CRIES OPENLY

I had to look up another version bc lol europe but this is the coolest thing and NEVER have I ever wished so much I could show something to myself as a kid this badly like ugh

THIS IS SO FUCKING AMAZING! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

AND IT’S SO IMPORTANT HOW THE CROWD SUPPORTED HER, EVERY SINGLE STEP OF THE WAY. FUCK YES.

awesome

ladies and gentlemen… Batgirl.

While the original Japanese version of Ninja Warrior (Sasuke) had a women’s tournament, I can vouch that this is for the most part true.

However, TwoTommyOlivers is wrong. There have been televised attempts by female competitors in Sasuke, most notably Chie Nishimura/Tanabe of Super Sentai fame, Masami Yusa, and Rie Komiya, a former Kunoichi champion.

Please Keep Sharing and become a Member at http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka to help create a foster care system run by Lakota, for Lakota and end the corrupt practices of the state of South Dakota. Illegal over-drugging of Lakota children. Many Lakota children in foster care are being involuntarily administered as many as five adult psychiatric drugs every day, including: Zyprexa, Geodon, Prozac, and Abilify—all of which are not allowed, by the FDA, to be administered to children without consent from their parent or guardian. The use of such powerful anti-psychotic pharmaceutical drugs on Indian children by the State of South Dakota has, in fact, increased by over 1300% since the year 2000! Due to this, and other problems with state-run foster care, when these Indian children “age out” of the state foster care system in the State of South Dakota at the age of 18, over 63 percent of these children are, by the time they are 20 years old, either homeless, in prison, or dead.  Children should not be drugged into submission and made to feel like zombies because they have been taken from their families and their communities. This must stop.

As civilian casualties mounted on Monday in the Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, Israel’s military reminded the world that it had warned people living in targeted areas to leave. The response from Palestinians here was unanimous: Where should we go?

United Nations shelters are already brimming, and some Palestinians fear they are not safe; one shelter was bombed by Israel in a previous conflict. Many Gaza residents have sought refuge with relatives, but with large extended families commonly consisting of dozens of relatives, many homes in the shrinking areas considered safe are already packed.

Perhaps most important, the vast majority of Gazans cannot leave Gaza. They live under restrictions that make this narrow coastal strip, which the United Nations considers occupied by Israel, unlike anywhere else.

Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain in 2010 called Gaza “an open-air prison,” drawing criticism from Israel. But in reality, the vast majority of Gazans are effectively trapped, unable to seek refugee status across an international border. (Most are already refugees, those who fled from what is now Israel and their descendants.)

A 25-mile-long rectangle just a few miles wide, and one of the most densely populated places in the world, Gaza is surrounded by concrete walls and fences along its northern and eastern boundaries with Israel and its southern border with Egypt.

Even in what pass for ordinary times here, Israel permits very few Gazans to enter its territory, citing security concerns because suicide bombers and other militants from Gaza have killed Israeli civilians. The restrictions over the years have cost Palestinians jobs, scholarships and travel.

Egypt has also severely curtailed Gazans’ ability to travel, opening its border crossing with the territory for only 17 days this year. During the current fighting between Israel and the Hamas militants who control Gaza, only those with Egyptian or foreign passports or special permission were allowed to exit.

Even the Mediterranean Sea to the west provides no escape. Israel restricts boats from Gaza to three nautical miles offshore. And Gaza, its airspace controlled by Israel, has no airport.

So while three million Syrians have fled their country during the war there, more and more of Gaza’s 1.7 million people have been moving away from the edges of the strip and crowding into the already-packed center of Gaza City.

I waited in line to get a photo with Elizabeth Warren and was kicked out because I didnt have a book. I couldn’t afford it but thought I could get a photo since they were letting people with books take photos with her. When I was kicked out I said I couldn’t afford it and was almost out of the hall when an older man handed me a book and told me to go get a photo.

So here are my photos, including me pointing out how her book is close to what I spend each week on food and that I was kicked out of line for being too poor to afford it. I was also table to tell her to fight the “treat and reduce obesity act” that is being pushed by obesity alliance coalition to have Medicaid cover weight loss surgery and diet pills. It has financial ties to the makers of lap band, Allergan, and the director is the former policy director of glaxosmithkline. I’m kind of weepy but I told her I need access to food not weight loss.
