Flailing Her Puerto Rican Ponytail

My ponytail will cut you.

Life is too short to spend it worrying about people who treat me like a star in the sky when everyone I love is a planet, a universe in ecstatic motion. And I just don’t have the time to stop for anyone who doesn’t see me for what I truly am - an entire galaxy full of constellations they will never be a part of.

Good morning! #RegoPark # Queens #damecafe

Good morning! #RegoPark # Queens #damecafe

  1. 1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

    2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

    3. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

    4. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

    5. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

    6. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

    7. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

    8. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

    9. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

    10. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

    11. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

    13. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

    14. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

    15. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

Such lovely ideas. While it is impossible to do all these things all the time, it’s a wonderful way of life to aspire towards these things at all times.

We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.

Militia plans to guard border by aiming guns at immigrants, start revolution if cops show up
A militia group is calling on supporters to patrol the Texas-Mexico border to allegedly guard against drug gangs and undocumented immigrants.
The citizen militia operation, called “Secure Our Border – Laredo,” is urging members to voluntarily guard private property near the border town of Laredo, Texas along the Rio Grande, where some residents have allegedly felt threatened by drug cartels and other gangs.
Conservative publications have resorted to racist rhetoric and claimed that a recent surge in undocumented children and other immigrants has carried infectious disease across the border and poses a threat to the U.S.
A spokeswoman for the militia group told the Brownsville Herald that members would not engage in violence, and the group’s leader – who calls himself Commander Chris “Threepercenter” Davis – has cautioned against violent actions or racist comments.
“This is not a ‘go-in-guns-blazing’ kind of thing,” said spokeswoman Denice Freeman. “This will be handled with the utmost professionalism and security and safety for everyone involved.”
But a 21-minute video that was apparently posted June 14 by Davis encourages militia members to threaten suspected undocumented immigrants to secure the border.
“You see an illegal,” Davis says in the video. “You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’”
He also urged militia members to “start the next 1776 right there on the border” if they were confronted by law enforcement authorities.
“It is time that we start taking back our national sovereignty,” Davis says.
The YouTube account for Davis was apparently deactivated since the Brownsville Herald reported his comments.
Davis describes his beliefs and interests in a brief biography on his Twitter account.
“I believe in the King James Bible, The Constitution, and Bill of Rights!” he says. “I am a Future Veteran of the Refounding. Molon Labe! III%! Spirit of 1776!”
Hidalgo County sheriff Eddie Guerra said the militia was not needed in the Rio Grande Valley.
“We don’t need their services on our border,” Guerra said. “If we ever did, I’m sure we have enough good people in Hidalgo County that I can call up.”

the vile dredge of modern day white supremacism begins to bubble to the top of the brew. oh dig the glee in these seething racists. so happy to find an excuse to loose their demons. not so different from these sadistic cops caught time and time again on tape hiding their sick sado fetish behind a badge. flag, badge, no dif. we know what’s up. 


they are doing an anti-immigrant kid refugee protest here…vomit. 

This is not so far fetched sadly. Look at what happened to Brisenia Flores. That is the energy that is amping up
