They had chains which they fastened about the leg of the nearest hog, and the other end of the chain they hooked into one of the rings upon the wheel. So, as the wheel turned, a hog was suddenly jerked off his feet and borne aloft. At the same instant the ear was assailed by a most terrifying shriek; the visitors started in alarm, the women turned pale and shrank back.
The shriek was followed by another, louder and yet more agonizing--for once started upon that journey, the hog never came back; at the top of the wheel he was shunted off upon a trolley and went sailing down the room. And meantime another was swung up, and then another, and another, until there was a double line of them, each dangling by a foot and kicking in frenzy--and squealing. The uproar was appalling, perilous to the ear-drums; one feared there was too much sound for the room to hold--that the walls must give way or the ceiling crack. There were high squeals and low squeals, grunts, and wails of agony; there would come a momentary lull, and then a fresh outburst, louder than ever, surging up to a deafening climax.
Meantime, heedless of all these things, the men upon the floor were going about their work. Neither squeals of hogs nor tears of visitors made any difference to them; one by one they hooked up the hogs, and one by one with a swift stroke they slit their throats. There was a long line of hogs, with squeals and life-blood ebbing away together; until at last each started again, and vanished with a splash into a huge vat of boiling water. It was all so very businesslike that one watched it fascinated. It was pork-making by machinery, pork-making by applied mathematics. And yet somehow the most matter-of-fact person could not help thinking of the hogs; they were so innocent, they came so very trustingly; and they were so very human in their protests--and so perfectly within their rights! They had done nothing to deserve it.......

Today’s JOY: It was a day of sorrow and anger at the injustice of this world and the inhumanity of humans. It was a day where I had little relief from my own pain and little to offer my hurting child. It was a day where all I could say was I’m sorry, it’s not fair, and I don’t know why the bullies and abusers get away with their cruelty. I don’t know why doing what you believe is right too often allows others to do what’s wrong, with little accountability. I don’t know why things are the way they are, why reality is so unreal and awful sometimes, why the protectors don’t protect and often harm, why we feel so powerless against a stranger with a loved one’s face. Why it seems the “good guys” finish last, if they finish at all. Why being honest and assuming the best of others feels like handing them the knife to gut you with. Why? Why? I don’t know. I understand the pain much too well, but I don’t understand why. And I’m powerless to stop it.
Joy was hard to find today and I nearly gave in to despair over its absence. But it was there, in simple comments about not being able to sustain hatred, and needing to be honest, and recognizing the ones who do care and show their love in actions. Joy was there in tender hearts, in our ability to empathize even when we don’t want to, in our desire to do the best we possibly can, be the best we possibly can for those who need us. Joy was there in being true to who we are and not being bullied into compromising our integrity. Joy was there in facing cruelty and selfishness without becoming those things ourselves. Dig through the helplessness and overwhelm and find joy in being true to who God created us to be. #dailyjoy
Легендарный супер-человек Аквамэн!🐋🧜🏽♂️🐟🐠🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
Вот и вышел в прокат этот фантастический релиз в продолжение фильмов с героями Marvel⚡️
Все мы помним, ещё свежие воспоминания от фильма «Венум», и вот мы можем насладиться яркой картиной с очередным, многим любимым персонажем! У меня лично к нему симпатия ещё и по игре в PS4 #injustice 🤪, кто рубился в эту игрушку меня поймёт! Даже в игре, он достаточно сильный и мощный игрок, основным оружием которого является трезубец и вода🌊⚡️⚡️⚡️🧜🏽♂️
Но если мы вернёмся к фильму, то это просто БОМБА! 💣Мы отправились на фильм, не зная будут ли билеты и к великой удаче, из 10 последних штук, мы выбрали самые крутые места ещё и в зале с потрясный звуком Dolbi Atmos с качеством в 3D!
🚀По оценке фильма твёрдая 5!!! Рекомендация стопудовая:)
Моменты в кинокартине присутствуют как смешные😂, так и меня лично испугавшие, 😲сюжет крутой, 👍непредсказуемый! А также, режиссёр и автор сценария в конце дают зрителю понять, что это не конец...:) и можно ждать продолжения картины! Как это случилось например с человеком пауком ☺️☺️☺️ А вы, смотрели? Понравился или нет?) что скажете?)
Stumbled upon this in my local arcade (never even heard of an Injustice arcade version), and to be frank, feels like a mobile game adapted for an arcade button setup, which is odd and way too basic for a fighting game. Best thing about this thing is that it prints cards of the characters, random, yeah, still. #injusticegodsamongus#injustice#dc#rawthrills
NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭.... I HATE YOU 2019 ALREADY!!! I CANT IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT MADEA!! #broken#why#injustice#tragic *curls up in a ball and cries* why?!

If you REALLY know me:
you know my heart. You know what drives and motivates me, and you know that I go hard for others because I care so deeply about the well-being of the human race.
You know that I always say that if I die at a young age, it would probably be as a martyr-because I stood up for something I believed in or interfered when I noticed injustice.
You also know that I care sooo sooo deeply about gun violence, and spend hours fighting for equality. You know how consumed I was with the Sandy Hook Shooting, Parkland, Pulse (and so many others). You know that the NUMBER ONE reason I voted this year was to fight hard to change gun laws. •
You know that both of my uncles were murdered at the hands of gun violence, one of them by U.S Marshalls. You know that this runs DEEP for me.
You know that I do things like donate blood, plasma, build houses for Habitat for Humanity, work for Americorps, and volunteer without being court ordered because it’s embedded in my heart.
You know that I was a journalism major before Emory cut the program (and after I decided not to be a doctor and live vicariously through @coldlocomotive 😂). •
You know that I’ve since realized that Journalism was not my calling anyway. Merely documenting and writing about the many social issues and cultural boundaries would not have been enough for me. I do not desire to be a bystander. I desire to be THE CHANGE.
I’m still getting used to the gift that I’ve been given, but I know that I have this innate ability to put others before myself. I am a fighter. I am a supporter. I am a philanthropist. I am a defender. I root for the underdog, and I challenge the parameters of what is socially acceptable. I get my hands dirty. I participate instead of speculate.
When I decided not to become a doctor, it wasn’t because I didn’t want to help others. I just wanted to help others in another way.
Things like this are the driving force behind my culturally diverse lifestyle blog.
It also explains why I have an ENFJ personality type like Martin Luther King Jr, Oprah Winfrey, & Barrack Obama.
Mark my words.
I will change the world in one way or another.
Even if I die in the process.
Extremely sad and infuriating that our people in Borana, Hararge, Wallo and Wallaga are dying continuously. What are the representatives of Oromia region doing ? Why can’t there be security, protection and help for our people ? When will this nightmare end ? Why is the government silent ? When will we finally be at peace living on the land of our ancestors ? Oromo people are dying on east, west, north and south. Borana is bleeding. Wallo is bleeding. Hararge is bleeding. Wallaga is bleeding. Bring security, peace and justice to our people of Moyale, Cinaksan, Billa, Baatee, Rayya, Diredawa, Dambidollo, Diggaa,... Make the War on Borana, Wallo, Wallaga , Hararge Oromo stop. @drabiyahmed Please Protect the people and use your power to serve justice since OPDO have proved to fail us again and again. What does apology even do if you fail to keep your words? @LemmaMagarsa Apology doesn’t bring our brothers and sisters that were shot in cold blood. Apology won’t heal our people that are traumatized by all these massacres , injustices and evictions going on. Please hear the echos of innocent people dying. Their home is being destroyed, their body is being butchered. Children, women and men are living in terror. Security and peace within come before diplomacy with outside. @pmabiyahmed Please stop war in Moyale , Cinaksan, Baatee , Benishangul,Diggaa ,... there’s no peace if anyone of us bleeds 😢😭😭😭💔💔💔 Repost @tularaw20 @oromocounsel .
The American prison system is massive. So massive that its estimated turnover of $74 billion eclipses the GDP of 133 nations. What is perhaps most unsettling about this fun fact is that it is the American taxpayer who foots the bill and is increasingly padding the pockets of publicly traded corporations like Corrections Corporation of America and GEO Group. Combined both companies generated over $2.53 billion in revenue in 2012, and represent more than half of the private prison business. So what exactly makes the business of incarcerating Americans so lucrative?
Most of it has to do with the way the American legal system works and how it has changed over the last 40 years. In the 1970’s, lawmakers were dealing with a nationwide rash of drug-use and crime. By declaring a nation-wide war on drugs in 1971, President Richard Nixon set a precedent for hard-line policies towards drug-related crime. New York governor Nelson Rockefeller followed suit declaring “For drug pushing, life sentence, no parole, no probation.” His policies once put into action promised 15 years to life in prison for drug users and dealers. His policies catalyzed the growth of a colossal corrections system that currently houses an estimated 2.2 million inmates.
These drug laws are must add are biased and manipulated by the media in order to stigmatize a particular group of people (black People). Although whites were the major drug users and pushers.. The police force targeted black communities. Killing the youth., arresting, harassing, abusing people for nothing. Drug on war was war on the black community. We need to get free from our conditioning and know who the real criminals are
