The primaries are on Tuesday and I still don't really quite know who I'm voting for yet. I guess I better pick my pony quickly here. It would be nice if I could really get behind any one candidate but I don't really like anyone who's running this year very much.

Wow...did anyone hear about the company trying patent a cancer gene to try and stifle research from other companies and raise treatment costs? Fortunately they were just defeated in court, but the fact that they were even trying just makes me so fucking angry. What is wrong with the people making these decisions?

Police are a problem everywhere IMO. I live in the UK and in most places the police are not armed (except in N Ireland, with pretty good reason) they are still abusing their power regularly though. I was harassed for months by the police over an ex boyfriend (it was a minor collision) and they refused to believe he didn't live w/me anymore. They used to be threatening every time they showed up, and I ended up with panic attacks every time the doorbell rang. I have also seen people enter the police force and completely change as people in a really bad way. I don't doubt there's plenty of good ones but some of their training and experiences seem to remove much of their humanity, or maybe the wrong people are attracted the the job. Racial profiling is a big issue here too, although at least the Met Chief here has admitted to that so hopefully he's willing to tackle it.

Not sure why it was such a big deal that a (white) police officer didn't shoot or kill or beat up a (black) driver over having a concealed weapon. The driver told him he was carrying, he was being a responsible gun owner. In AZ they are allowed to carry, the cop couldn't do anything to him anyway besides citing him for his broken light. The stop wasn't anything special. Everyone is so excited about it as if "see, if you just show respect you won't get killed or beat". People don't understand there is a problem with police overreach no matter how respectful you are. If a cop wants to abuse his power, he will. Correction: people are in denial there is abuse of power with the cops.

There's a jewelry store in our city that is giving away a free rifle away with the purchase of an engagement ring/$1000+ purchase. We wouldn't need to get crazy with gun control reformation--just eliminating stupid crap like this would go a long way.

I nearly died from taking birth control pills. A week in the ICU and I thought all I had was bronchitis, no, it was blood clots. All in the name of vanity, hoping to clear up my acne or to prepare myself for Accutane if the BCP didn't work on my acne and also to help alleviate severe cramps and heavy bleeding during my period . And to take Accutane, you're required to have 3 forms on birth control while on it. If my Dr would have looked into why I was having suck horrible acne and painful, heavy periods in the first place then maybe I wouldn't have been knocking on death's door but of course, like many doctors do, she threw a prescription for birth control at me and said this will cure everything that ails you.

I hope they catch the D-bag that pointed the laser at the plane going to SD from PHX. Selfish assholes messing with people's life. The pilot was hospitalized. Go to hell jerk.

Ok, I misspoke when I said 'other agendas'... what I meant was agendas other than representing their constituents. Like, say, government officials in North Dakota making the state more 'business friendly' by alleviating oil & gas companies of responsibility when a worker is injured or killed due to unsafe conditions. (This topic was on Last Week Tonight not too long ago.) I didn't mean any agenda other than Bernie's. Good catch, RP.

I can't believe that Indonesia's forest fires are the result of deliberate blazes that got out of control. The CEOs of the companies that own the plantations in that area need to be brought to account, they need to take responsibility for this. It's so heartbreaking to see all that forest go up in smoke. And it's not just going to affect Indonesians, but long term all of us given the amount of carbon that is being dumped in the atmosphere. It's amazing to me that anyone who dares protest shit like this is the one branded "environmental terrorist". Those companies are the real terrorists, they are guilty of widespread abuse of humans given the amount of respiratory disorders people in the region are now suffering. Even without nutcases like IS running around, we are doing an excellent good job of fucking everything up on our own.

Haha. Bad news for the Spanish bullfights yesterday. Feel so sorry for the guys who make a living out of torturing sentient beings. Oh wait, no I don't.
