Five little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell off and hurt his head,
The mama called the doctor, and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”
Four little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell off and hurt his head,

My gut says neurologist or pathologist. Because braaaaaaainnns.
But my braaains say Family doc, of course. We can do a little bit of everything. ER docs would probably be pretty helpful too, for similar reasons.
My dashboard did a thing
Please sign this petition concerning police brutality and government corruption in Brazil. The mass media is not reporting on any of this, today on June 16th radio stations’ signals were cut and replaced with the narration of soccer games simply because they were reporting on police brutality who locked protesters inside a park with children and women inside, gassed them and shot rubber bullets.
The Brazilian media is being censured. Websites that express the true situation by people who have been victims of police brutality are being taken down. The government is refusing to acknowledge any of this, and their president has not even made a statement about the situation.
Please don’t turn your back on these people. Don’t not care because they aren’t your people and its another country. This is HUMAN RIGHTS we are talking about. It is important; people need to stand up and take notice. If a video of Miley Cyrus twerking can get over 1,000 notes then I know we can get this to 1,000 & beyond. As human beings, brothers & sisters of the human race, we have an obligation to help others who are in distress. So sign the petition everyone, bring attention to the Brazilian government and help change Brazil.
This is really fucking misleading. This is not about the corruption of our government (if you think so, ding dong you’re fucking wrong). This was about the raises of the bus fare and this is the first fucking time the middle class has risen and witnessed the violence of our police, which is still a part of the ARMED FORCES, a violence that was always defended when used against the people in the favelas (ghettos, black and poor areas of the city), but now happened in the white central rich area. This used to be a protest of the people but in the end, the right-wing wave came and tried to appropriate the movement (and is succeeding).
This is not about the World Cup. This is about fair living and about the difference these cents in the bus ticket are making to the people (stories about workers missing meals to pay the difference of the fare).
And now suddenly people are trying to take down the government, they’re saying that all politicians are shit and that we’re living in a dictatorship when we ARE NOT. People don’t believe in the power of vote and some are even saying that the army should intervene in the goverment.
This is about the indignation of a white middle class who’s seen a Worker’s Party rise to power and seen the lower working class’s life being improved.
This movement only gained all this media because the goverment lost control of the police and the police repressed not only the protesters (which, until last protest were being called hoodlums (i’m not sure if i’m saying this right) and were being violently repressed) but also the journalists that were working! Suddenly, all the media started to side with us and thus the public opinion swayed, Now they’re trying to appropriate this movement for their own ends.
By god how I hate this fucking call to arms against the fucking World Cup.
I’m not fucking saying that the repression shouldn’t be fought, but yeah, it’s interesting that it has only gained this attention when white rich kids started to whine about it..
I’m not fucking saying that our goverment is the most saint, but this is always the first argument against the left party, and people tend to forget that the right was 3x times more corrupt than our current goverment.
I’m not fucking saying that the World Cup will be awesome, but given that our president has been booed by people who payed 400$ for the price of the fucking ticket, I think we may as well invite the fucking foreigners to our country and get some of the money back, SINCE IT’S ALL FUCKING GONE NOW ANYWAY. WE SHOULD MAKE OTHER AWARENESS PROTESTS IN RELATION TO WORLD CUP, AS, FOR INSTANCE, THE QUESTION OF THE SEXUAL TOURISM THAT HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED AT ALL SO FAR.
I’m just tired of people appropriating shit and nice people, whom I very much admire, and who don’t understand that the brazilian demography of tumblr is very white, very middle class and very privileged, is who’s trying to llluminate you in these matters.
It’s like if I asked how the fuck the US are doing TO A FUCKING REPUBLICAN. I bet they’d have a lot of shit to say too.
So there it is. I’m fucking done.
Reblogging commentary. Sorry folks for not looking into this deeper before I reblogged.
I’ve been hearing a lot about this and I didn’t know what to beleive, so it’s nice to hear some additional commentary on all of this.
the same thing happened with Venezuela, so i should have been me careful with my reblog too.
“This is an alternate universe where Bruce Wayne died instead of his parents. Causing His father Thomas Wayne to become Batman and his mother Martha to go insane and become the Joker. “
hold the phone.
Mmmmm Lady Joker.
freedom of speech means that the government is not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up. it doesn’t mean that i am not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up.
