Audition Dates: September 15,16 and September 22, 23, 2014

Awareness Raising through this film: The “extra-virgin” label is no longer a guarantee of quality, because so much of it has been processed in ways that greatly reduce its nutritional value - nowhere does it say that “extra virgin” olive oil must be made 100 percent from olives. The soaring demand for olive oil has outstripped the available supply. Thus manufacturers often adulterate the olive oil with other oils or use substandard waste olives to meet the demand; resulting in more olive oil being sold than there is being produced. Making this what may be the biggest food fraud of the 20th century; now being carried over to the 21st century.

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.

Chills too.

oh Jesus, what a loving parent

"Communist Death Toll," according to The Black Book of Communism: 94 million

Capitalism Death Toll: 369 million (369,790,731), according only to the statistics I could get sources for. This number doesn’t even scratch the surface.

But, guess what? Tomorrow, we know for sure that capitalism will kill at least 77,000 more people.
