This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

How much money have you  wasted that could’ve gone to help struggling parents and pregnant women is the better question to ask.

Yeah if i was a struggling parent and I saw that “monument”, you know what I’d do? Break into that fucker and use the money to help my kid get a better life.
Clearly those “charitable” folks aren’t using it on kids that have actually been born.

A few facts that the OP neglected to mention.
a)  The glass box is on the grounds of the Mississippi Baptist Convention building—right across from the Mississippi state capitol. It was placed there deliberately to remind legislators that the Baptist Church—which is very powerful in the South—is staunchly anti-abortion.
b) This wasn’t created by regular people, charitable or otherwise. It was a deliberate and high-profile project of the Convention. Using the services of a construction company that worked free of charge, they erected the glass box in 2006, putting 47 MILLION pennies in it on the day that it opened, thus creating the illusion that many, many people had contributed.
c) Once $500K was collected—back in 2008, by the way, and the photo dates back to 2007—the money was then spent by the Convention, which invested it on a permanent endowment fund for anti-abortion causes, such as assisting with the operations of crisis pregnancy centers.
d) Almost all crisis pregnancy centers are church-sponsored and evangelical in nature.
e) Most crisis pregnancy centers have ties to evangelical maternity homes, adoption lawyers, and private adoption agencies. Any crisis that a woman coming to such a center might be facing would be irrelevant; for the purposes of the center and its affiliates, it is paramount that she have the baby. Babies, especially healthy white babies, are in high demand by would-be adoptive parents, and there is a very small supply.  There are horror stories about women who have been forced continue pregnancies and who have been forced to relinquish, most to evangelical families. Evangelical churches support and encourage this kind of thing. They figure that this way, they win twice over: they save lives AND they get to control how the next generation thinks. 
f) So, to recap.The Baptist Church underwrites the memorial (at least the first 47 million). The funds eventually go back to the Baptist Church, which invests them in businesses that will help produce more goods—babies—for other evangelical businesses, such as adoption agencies and adoption lawyers, AND that will create more religious and political support in the future.
This is NOT a memorial created by heartbroken people, OP. It’s big business. 

Wow.  What the actual rusty fuck.

hypocritical..

Michael Vick subjected dogs to immense pain and trauma in the dog-fighting pit. He killed them by literally drowning them by holding their heads underwater, hanging them on tree limbs, and electrocuting them.
PRETTY SURE a bullet to the brain or heart is a quicker death. It also doesn’t involve torturing the animal beforehand.
So ignorant.

One of the pictures up there is a moose, too, which is edible. I don’t think Vick was putting down dogs to eat them, where a moose (or giraffe) can feed a LOT of people for a LONG time.
Even if you dislike trophy hunting, why would you use trophy hunting to excuse Vick’s horrific behavior on the basis of race? They can’t BOTH be bad? What the fuck makes you think the two are mutually exclusive?
If you truly give a fuck about animals at all, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO DEFEND MIKE VICK

Michael Vick was killing dogs literally just to kill dogs. He didn’t know what he was doing, apparently his dogs were shit (according to other dogmen), and he’s got more money than he knows what to do with it so he wasn’t in it for that.
He was literally in it just to watch dogs kill one another, and did a shit job at that.
This is not the first person I’ve seen defend Michael Vick because of his race. I find it kind of appauling to support someone who tortured animals for the sake of entertainment, based purely on their skin colour.

It’s not like he couldn’t afford to have the dogs put down more humanely if they failed at their “job” either. He had no reason for doing what he did other than he’s a complete sociopath who gets his kicks from pain. That’s an extremely dangerous red flag.
He’s also illegally went out and got a ‘pet’ dog again, now, too, despite the fact that he’s killed so many of them like fucking Buffalo Bill before.

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

Also, if you harass, attack, or scare a crow or crows. They will remember you FOR LIFE. Yes, for life. They don’t give a shit you if threw a rock at them when you were 8. They will remember you forever. I’m glad crows aren’t around where I live. *phew*

Fox News headlines v. real headlines, part 2425183. 

The brunette part is really important.

Fun fact, our hair color reveals our place in pansexual society. Blondes are our record keepers. The great librarians, they collect, analyze, store, and distribute information to the rest of us. They are blonde because they reflect the light of knowledge. Those with Black Hair are our inventors. They investigate, produce, and teach new technologies so that we may thrive in future times. Their hair is black because of their frequent dives into the void of the unknown. Burnettes are our ambassadors. They interact with people, plants, and animals, forging bonds that can protect us when we are threatened. Their hair is brown because of their deep connection to the earth.

And as for redheads.

You don’t want to know the purpose of the Red Heads. But may their hellfire consume our enemies.

Father left child in the car for 8 hours. He forgot that his kid was there. No arrest was made.

Compare that to homeless Black mother doing the same thing for a much SHORTER time

It’s so obvious.

Anyone else pissed off that this is the white parent of non-white kids, on top of every thing else?

there really needs to be a show called “NOW IF THAT HAD BEEN A BLACK PERSON”

- Z

The show should be called “NOW WHEN THAT HAD BEEN A BLACK PERSON” because there are no if’s about it. A black woman did the same thing to a much lesser extent for far nobler reasons and was punished unjustly.

But race doesn’t matter… or something. I’ve seen people say that “well, at least he was in a garage”. Get ALL the way the fuck out my face with that shit.
