Police State & #nov15

The United States of America has 4.4% of the worlds population, but holds 22% of the entire worlds’ imprisoned populous. We have 2,200,000 of our citizens behind bars in an increasingly harsh, demeaning, and inhuman penal system. That number has skyrocketed by 500% in the last 30 years. If that is not evidence that we truly are the police state, I do not know what is. We are rapidly approaching a time where fighting back will be near impossible. Yes, you should be terrified. Stand up before it is too late, brothers and sisters. Stand up for yourselves, your friends, your family, and for the future generations who should not be born into slavery because we were too lazy, too distracted, too apathetic to question authority and stand our ground on what is right.

Here is the original tile plus some variations of it.

The U.S. military has spotted five Chinese navy ships off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, heading in the direction of the Aleutian Islands. The presence of the Chinese ships, including three combat ships, a replenishment vessel, and an amphibious ship, marks the first time that the U.S. military has reported seeing “any such activity in the area,” The Wall Street Journal reports.Although China’s defense ministry could not be reached by the Journal for comment, the presence of Chinese warships close to U.S. territory is likely connected to China’s efforts to ramp up its military activity as its economic power expands. “I don’t think we’d characterize anything they’re doing as threatening,” one defense official told The Wall Street Journal.Other officials theorized that the ships’ presence could be…
