Please get rid of (insert name here of person I follow) has +1 this post to show up in my feed. It's so intrusive to see other people +1 an offensive photo, post a big ass picture of someone I don't know, or a post spewing off something I can give zero fucks about automatically showing up in my feed just because I follow a person, and they happen to like another post from someone I don't follow. I don't care what people +1. I don't want to see it. That's why I turned my option off, cause I know people can care less or are nosy as hell.

It's a reason I don't follow a person. Get them out of my feed.

Rant over, but if you know a way to permanently get this off-no extensions...let me know.

Today, May 15, 2015 marks World Autoimmune Arthritis Day #WAAD15 and you can raise awareness by simply learning about these diseases and advocating for better changes in healthcare, finding tools to manage pain, and becoming a great support system for those living with #ChronicPain.

A great start is at where a virtual race of nonprofits come together when people register, thus gaining points. It's fun and the event features 5 live webinars as detours, a great chance to learn about autoimmune diseases. The race will officially end May 21, 2015 at 12 pm EST.

Transcription below. 💜
Why is marijuana not legal? Why is marijuana not legal? 
It's a natural plant that grows in the dirt. 
Do you know what's not natural?
80 year old dudes with hard-ons. That's not natural.
But we got pills for that.
We're dedicating all our medical resources to keeping the old guys erect,
but we're putting people in jail for something that grows in the dirt?

You know we have more prescription drugs now.
Every commercial that comes on TV is a prescription drug ad.
I can't watch TV for four minutes without thinking I have five serious diseases.
Like: "Do you ever wake up tired in the morning?"
Oh my god I have this, write this down. Whatever it is, I have it. 
Half the time I don't even know what the commercial is:
people running in fields or flying kites or swimming in the ocean.
I'm like that is the greatest disease ever. How do you get that?
That disease comes with a hot chick and a puppy. 

The schools now: It is all about self-esteem in the schools now.
Build the kids' self-esteem, make them feel good about themselves.
If everybody grows up with high self-esteem, who is going to dance in our strip clubs?
What's going to happen to our porno industry?
These women don't just grown on trees. 
It takes lots of drunk dads missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks.
And if that disappears, where does that leave me on a Friday night with my new high speed connection?

Masterminds are another word that comes up all the time.
You keep hearing about these terrorists masterminds that get killed in the middle east. 
Terrorists masterminds.
Mastermind is sort of a lofty way to describe what these guys do, don't you think?
They're not masterminds.
"OK, you take bomb, right? And you put in your backpack. And you get on bus and you blow yourself up. Alright?"
"Why do I have to blow myself up? Why can't I just:"
"Who's the fucking mastermind here? Me or you?"

Americans, let's face it: We've been a spoiled country for a long time. 
Do you know what the number one health risk in America is? 
Obesity. They say we're in the middle of an obesity epidemic.
An epidemic like it is polio. Like we'll be telling our grand kids about it one day.
The Great Obesity Epidemic of 2004.
"How'd you get through it grandpa?"
"Oh, it was horrible Johnny, there was cheesecake and pork chops everywhere."

Nobody knows why were getting fatter? Look at our lifestyle.
I'll sit at a drive thru. 
I'll sit there behind fifteen other cars instead of getting up to make the eight foot walk to the totally empty counter.
Everything is mega meal, super sized. Want biggie fries, super sized, want to go large. 
You want to have thirty burgers for a nickel you fat mother fucker. There's room in the back. Take it!
Want a 55 gallon drum of Coke with that? It's only three more cents.

Sometimes you have to suffer a little bit in your youth to motivate yourself to succeed in later life.
Do you think if Bill Gates got laid in high school, do you think there'd be a Microsoft?
Of course not.
You got to spend a long time in your own locker with your underwear shoved up your ass before you start to think,
"You'll see. I'm going to take of the world of computers! I'll show them."

We're in one of the richest countries in the world,
but the minimum wage is lower than it was thirty five years ago.
There are homeless people everywhere.
This homeless guy asked me for money the other day.
I was about to give it to him and then I thought he was going to use it on drugs or alcohol.
And then I thought, that's what I'm going to use it on.
Why am I judging this poor bastard.
People love to judge homeless guys. Like if you give them money they're just going to waste it.
Well, he lives in a box, what do you want him to do? Save it up and buy a wall unit?
Take a little run to the store for a throw rug and a CD rack? He's homeless.
I walked behind this guy the other day. 
A homeless guy asked him for money.
He looks right at the homeless guy and says why don't you go get a job you bum.
People always say that to homeless guys like it is so easy.
This homeless guy was wearing his underwear outside his pants.
Outside his pants. I'm guessing his resume isn't all up to date.
I'm predicting some problems during the interview process.
I'm pretty sure even McDonalds has a "underwear goes inside the pants" policy.
Not that they enforce it really strictly, but technically I'm sure it is on the books.

Known to the masses as Poeta Chica. I am a Poet. Geek. Writer. Literary Lover Extraordinaire. I also advocate for the #ChronicPain and #Spoonie community. Ambassador for US Pain Foundation.

Poet. Art lover. Ambassador. Advocate.
Poet. Lover of  140 characters with that little blue bird called Twitter. I am a hodgepodge of sorts. You know, the greatness that comes from a smorgasbord filled with little tidbits of passion, truth, change, growth, and desire for a better day. I am a writer. I am an artist. I am a music aficionado. I am an advocate. I am a complete bibliophile. I am a proud Geek. I have a weird obsession with Scrabble. I'm different, but that's okay. Loving God, and practice tolerance and love as my foremost religion, regardless if you're an atheist or a Buddhist monk. Because love makes the world go around, people. ☮ Note: I always encourage dialogue and engagement on posts! +1's are just too easy to hand out. Not interested in constant re-shares, cliche one liners, annoying .gifs, constant music uploads (post to appropriate circle for that) and soundbites. Spammers, hate speech, trolls, nudity, NSFW/explicit content, evil mother in laws, or anything that violates Google's standards need not apply to circle me. I moderate ALL posts, and do not tolerate hijacking of threads, inappropriateness, bullying, or disrespect. Only positivity lives here.
