I am also a novice poet who thinks he doesn't reek of eccentricity. Aside from posts that deal with health, I will also post random photos, images and other cool shenanigans. I like that word...shenanigans.
Notice: I do not follow back if: you have an unreasonably low UGW, if your goal is to have thigh gaps and hip bones and so on, and if you ONLY post pictures of very skinny women. This blog is for people who have or share healthy goals, physical health, and even emotional and mental health, not goals that are directly unrelated to health.
Also: if you have an issue with what I say, with my opinion then you can, in a mature manner, inbox me so we can discuss the issue and help me address what it is I said.
One last thing: People who struggle with eating disorders might be triggered by some things I reblog, so please, please be careful and if you were triggered then notify me immediately so I can remove that post/reblog post.
The poems I post here may NOT be used by anyone else for any reason whatsoever unless they have received my full permission, my say so,.
Thank you. Sincerely, Chris.

Underpinning all the surveillance of Muslim Americans is an assumption that Islamic ideology is linked to terrorism. Yet, over the last 20 years, far more people have been killed in acts of violence by right-wing extremists than by Muslim American citizens or permanent residents. The huge numbers being spied upon are not would-be terrorists but law-abiding people, some of whom have “radical” political opinions that still ought to be protected by the First Amendment to the constitution. Just the same, there are plenty of other minority Americans who are not would-be “home-grown” terrorists – but they still live in fear that they might be mistaken as one.
So let’s reform the NSA and its countless collections. But let’s not forget the FBI’s reported 10,000 intelligence analysts working on counter-terrorism and the 15,000 paid informants helping them do it. Let’s not forget the New York Police Department’s intelligence and counter-terrorism division with its 1,000 officers, $100m budget and vast program of surveillance. Let’s not forget the especially subtle psychological terror of being Muslim in America, where, sure, maybe your phone calls won’t be stored for much longer, but there’s a multitude of other ways you’re always being watched.”
