stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.

this! see also: “it doesn’t matter who started it”

!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop making the “tattle-tales” out of children - “don’t worry, I (the adult) will deal with that" attitude is wrong. "Let’s see what we can do about that” is so much better! Let children take part (even a small action is okay - like telling “are you talking about yourself? ‘cause it sounds like it” to the abusing kid, in public) in solving their problems - of course, help them along, too! Help them as much as you would anyway, but take care to make the child see that their own actions that have results. If someone actively solves their own problem - even with adult’s help - they are not tattle-tales. If the child is a part of a solution, it strengthens their self-esteem - and it’s critically important to fix kid’s self-esteem after abuse!

"Tattle-tales" are made when a child is taught to be absolutely passive when someone else does all the work for them. Do not make “tattle-tales” out of children!

76,000 notes

Funny thing - when the chorus goes like “be a man” in many languages, it goes like “be strong” in Polish. The pun mentioned above is still there (as well as “I’ll make the men out of you lot” shortly after), but the other jokes about Mulan being woman in army are replaced by something else, because it just isn’t seen as funny enough to repeat over and over.

Some foreign (non-Polish) Hetalia fans have a field day with the “be strong” line there, though ><.

German invasion of Poland, September 1st, 1939

"At 4:45 a.m., some 1.5 million German troops invade Poland all along its 1,750-mile border with German-controlled territory. Simultaneously, the German Luftwaffe bombed Polish airfields, and German warships and U-boats attacked Polish naval forces in the Baltic Sea. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler claimed the massive invasion was a defensive action, but Britain and France were not convinced. On September 3, they declared war on Germany, initiating World War II.

To Hitler, the conquest of Poland would bring Lebensraum, or ‘living space,’ for the German people. According to his plan, the ‘racially superior’ Germans would colonize the territory and the native Slavs would be enslaved. German expansion had begun in 1938 with the annexation of Austria and then continued with the occupation of the Sudetenland and then all of Czechoslovakia in 1939. Both had been accomplished without igniting hostilities with the major powers, and Hitler hoped that his invasion of Poland would likewise be tolerated.

To neutralize the possibility that the USSR would come to Poland’s aid, Germany signed a nonaggression pact with the Soviet Union on August 23, 1939. In a secret clause of the agreement, the ideological enemies agreed to divide Poland between them. Hitler gave orders for the Poland invasion to begin on August 26, but on August 25 he delayed the attack when he learned that Britain had signed a new treaty with Poland, promising military support should it be attacked. To forestall a British intervention, Hitler turned to propaganda and misinformation, alleging persecution of German-speakers in eastern Poland. Fearing imminent attack, Poland began to call up its troops, but Britain and France persuaded Poland to postpone general mobilization until August 31 in a last ditch effort to dissuade Germany from war.

Shortly after noon on August 31, Hitler ordered hostilities against Poland to begin at 4:45 a.m. the next morning. At 8 p.m. on August 31, Nazi S.S. troops wearing Polish uniforms staged a phony invasion of Germany, damaging several minor installations on the German side of the border. They also left behind a handful of dead concentration camp prisoners in Polish uniforms to serve as further evidence of the supposed Polish invasion, which Nazi propagandists publicized as an unforgivable act of aggression.

At 4:45 a.m. on September 1, the invasion began. Nazi diplomats and propagandists scrambled to head off hostilities with the Western powers, but on September 2 Britain and France demanded that Germany withdraw by September 3 or face war. At 11 p.m. on September 3, the British ultimatum expired, and 15 minutes later British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain went on national radio to solemnly announce that Britain was at war with Germany. Australia, New Zealand, and India followed suit shortly thereafter. At 5:00 p.m., France declared war on Germany.

In Poland, German forces advanced at a dizzying rate. Employing a military strategy known as the blitzkrieg, or ‘lightning war,’ armored divisions smashed through enemy lines and isolated segments of the enemy, which were encircled and captured by motorized German infantry while the panzer tanks rushed forward to repeat the pattern. Meanwhile, the sophisticated German air force—the Luftwaffe—destroyed Polish air capability, provided air support for the blitzkrieg, and indiscriminately bombed Polish cities in an effort to further terrorize the enemy.

The Polish army was able to mobilize one million men but was hopelessly outmatched in every respect. Rather than take a strong defensive position, troops were rushed to the front to confront the Germans and were systematically captured or annihilated. In a famously ill-fated strategy, Polish commanders even sent horsed cavalry into battle against the heavy German armor. By September 8, German forces had reached the outskirts of Warsaw, having advanced 140 miles in the first week of the invasion.

The Polish armed forces hoped to hold out long enough so that an offensive could be mounted against Germany in the west, but on September 17 Soviet forces invaded from the east and all hope was lost. The next day, Poland’s government and military leaders fled the country. On September 28, the Warsaw garrison finally surrendered to a relentless German siege. That day, Germany and the USSR concluded an agreement outlining their zones of occupation. For the fourth time in its history, Poland was partitioned by its more powerful neighbors.

Despite their declaration of war against Germany, Britain and France did little militarily to aid Poland. Britain bombed German warships on September 4, but Chamberlain resisted bombing Germany itself. Though Germans kept only 23 divisions in the west during their campaign in Poland, France did not launch a full-scale attack even though it had mobilized over four times that number. There were modest assaults by France on its border with Germany but these actions ceased with the defeat of Poland. During the subsequent seven months, some observers accused Britain and France of waging a ‘phony war,’ because, with the exception of a few dramatic British-German clashes at sea, no major military action was taken. However, hostilities escalated exponentially in 1940 with Germany’s April invasion of Norway and May invasion of the Low Countries and France.

In June 1941, Hitler attacked the USSR, breaking his nonaggression with the Soviet Union, and Germany seized all of Poland. During the German occupation, nearly three million Polish Jews were killed in the Nazi death camps. The Nazis also severely persecuted the Slavic majority, deporting and executing Poles in an attempt to destroy the intelligentsia and Polish culture. A large Polish resistance movement effectively fought against the occupation with the assistance of the Polish government-in-exile. Many exiled Poles also fought for the Allied cause. The Soviets completed the liberation of Poland in 1945 and established a communist government in the nation.” (source)

Stop Russia now!

I would have recommended to do only one thing - to start quoting “Mein Kampf” and “Ost” plan. Hitler hated Russia as well so you’ll like it.

Я бы порекомендовал вам сделать только одно - начать цитировать “Майн Кампф” и план “Ост”. Он тоже ненавидел Россию, так что вам понравится.

I’m sorry for you, as you are brainwashed. Putin uses the Russian people for his own gains. May God have mercy on your souls, poor, unfortunate citizens of Russia. Putin is destroying your country as well as Ukraine.
Слава України!

Ekhem: Russia =/= Putin. Russia =/= Communism. Russia =/= Russian magnates. Russia is made out of common honest Russians at her core, isn&#8217;t she? Didn&#8217;t the Russian authorities need to start moving their soldiers in Ukraine, for if they were in one place for a longer period of time, they were becoming friends with the ones they were &#8220;supposed&#8221; to kill? Didn&#8217;t the governments need to replace the soldiers of WW1 after the Christmas Eve they spent together, for they refused to kill each other afterwards?
Most of us are still in heavy clutches of several &#8220;World Powers,&#8221; the government groups that think they are entitled to steal people&#8217;s most needed resources and to tell the people they should be thankful for that thievery; that they are entitled to lie to the people; that they are entitled to use us as a free-of-charge battle-meat. No. Governments are to serve. Those who don&#8217;t - those who act like organised crime groups instead - and I&#8217;m looking all around the world - WILL fall, for sooner or later - for the people will just stop listening to them, one day. I sincerely hope that there won&#8217;t be too much blood, but history tells me that a peaceful revolution happens only when the criminals knowthat they can&#8217;t possibly do anything to scare people into obedience, and that the people are sure to win.
Ukraine has a chance to become really truly free - and Russia has that chance, too. Many other countries do. But it won&#8217;t be done by not paying attention to the world around, by not passively resisting the orders that are wrong, and by not organising into the groups providing cultural education and some real actual self-defence groups, because in the world with no other law they are needed. Especially the education - it keeps us human (see: Haiti crisis).
If only it didn&#8217;t have to happen. We aren&#8217;t ready for yet another war that soon. &#8230;We&#8217;ll never be. Just protect your families the best you can, People, as I&#8217;ll protect mine.

Hey guys I need your help spreading this on social media so our people in Ferguson can defend themselves from attacks from the police.

This is important to add. When constructing this make sure the elastic to secure the bottle to the top of your head does not puncture the plastic or if it does the rubber needs to cover it. Also, make sure you keep it tight to your head as the gas only needs a small cap and tear gas can irritate greatly in small concentrations. (it can be flammable in high concentrations.) I would recommend diving goggles for your eyes as well as doing your best to ensure the bottle fits tightly against your forehead, jaw, cheeks, and chin.  Also if you can make sure the elastic can be tightened and loosened, this will help with sealing out the tear gas.
