  • Cheongju District Public Prosecutors' Office Hello S. Korean Prosecutor, I am the one who traveled abroad a lot and who had been suffering from depression 4 years ago due to my family's abuse and violence, and who were forcibly held by mob of the prosecutor's office with a small amount of MDA's income for treatment, had extreme depression and almost committed suicide. This is Lee Mi-jin, who was spied for revealing corrupt politician to the world. Can I ask a few questions? I haven't been in Korea for more than 20 years, and I have been traveling around the world on my own, meeting meditation teachers from many countries, meeting stewardships from many countries, and passing on the knowledge and experiences I have acquired to people all over the world. Do you still agree I have to pay $11,000 fine? Did you seize my computer for that small amount MDMA and spy all my personal data? And Why did you spy me? Do you know how many months have suffered from schizophrenia because of trauma since then? Did you know that my family, relatives, friends and colleagues have been branded as criminals and as criminals on my lifetime social security records? Did you have to listen to my private life by dressing up my best friend in elementary school as a coffee shop employee, and dressing up my 20 years old best friend as a spy at a yoga academy and at a bar? When I was threatened by teach the dharma and meditation in a Christian country in Brazil, I visited s.Korea again after 10 years, and went to the Taebaek mountain temple to ask for help in a place to meditate. But you trash me just because you believe women can not be enlighten? And the prosecutor had to dress up as a house buyer for spying me a flat? where I meditate for 3 month in silence. Did you came in my room and checked what I eat? What do I read? What I have that small flat?

  • In the 1970s, the meatpackers had the highest-paid factory jobs in America. The jobs were brutal, but unionized and mostly white blue collar workers. The companies moved the companies south and hired nonunion. They they bagan hiring immigrant workers at even lower pay. then they began hiring illegal immigrants at even lower pay. Then they donated to elected officials to create a visa worker just for them to hire more immigrants at even lower pay. people who say we need immigrants to do these terrible jobs are just pushing an open border corporate globalist narrative that destroys wages and job opportunities for American workers who used to do all of these jobs when they were not paid slave wages. Oliver always pretends he is sticking it to the man. When it comes to immigration he is the man.

  • John Oliver has obviously not worked as a member of management in a union shop. Management is charged with following the workers around cracking the whip and writing up violations, while labor hides and slacks off whenever and wherever they can. Not all, but a lot. It's a game they play so leadership from both sides can sit down at the table once a month and trade violations for grievances. Totally unproductive and a waste of time, but that's life in a union shop.

  • In Germany we do not employ those workers. Instead they are self-employed. They have to rent the equipment from the slaughter house, life in together with other workers in the same room, and do not get health insurance (which would have been necessary if they were employed, as this is mandatory in Germany). As no German would work under these conditions, these workers come from eastern European countries which are associated with or part of the EU. If they get sick, they are send back home.

The "warehouse" I was working for door collapsed down on top of me one day. Luckily I was in caged forklift. He wanted me to put it back together. I've never worked on one and knew it could be dangerous tensioning the spring. Spring was massive and over 40 years old, nearly slipped on me multiple times. That entire warehouse was just a fire waiting to happen. I've had other bad experiences in different workplaces. Employers know osha just isnt going to show up to enforce anything.

  • Americans, you have to realize that every major industrialized country in the world has a national health insurance plan (UK, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan...). People do not lose their homes paying for overpriced healthcare. It is a human right and healthy democracies treat all citizens equally. The US is the weird exception, where Republicans have brainwashed many to think it is some kind of socialism (if so, then all insurance is, but it isn’t; who owns health?). Second, the Republicans stand for deregulation, which means that Trump and his ilk want to eliminate OSHA and all agencies that would hold companies to healthy standards, as this video shows. “OSHA has to be rebuilt” means stop electing Republicans who are for maximum profits for companies, not the well-being of the poor workers who work like slaves in such shitty conditions. This is 2021. Learn from the pandemic or die.

  • The entire point of life: Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve. Mathew 20: 28. We are no different. This entire life is a representation of the spiritual warfare going on. Good vs evil. God isn't a flying man in the sky, but the actual representation of Love, Hope, Joy, Peace, Light, etc. Not metaphor, but literally, like an extra demintional wavelength of thought, emotions, and intent. The devil is the opposite wavelength, pain, fear, hate, anger, darkness, etc. Human life is serving one of these two. Not a man in the sky, actual sentient collective universal Love. However, humans are primatives, we make mistakes. It's in our nature, since the fall, to go down the wrong path. This means at some time each one of us has served darkness to some degree. God understands our limited understanding of our own actions, so he gave us forgiveness, though sacrificing himself in human form as Jesus Christ. It is our duty to accept that sacrifice, get the forgiveness, and be better, helping others be better, and spreading this wavelength of Love, Hope, Joy, Peace, Light, etc, thoughout the universe. But God had to make a way for us to get to this place spiritually, this is why evidence is not allowed. Evidence will make you believe, using the fear of absolute punishment to change your behavior, but that won't make you better, just scared. Faith makes you better. It is what redeemes us, not our works. Faith is the hope that things get better, that justice always prevails, that we're at least loved by our creator. But it has to be Faith in Jesus, because of his sacrifice. And there can't be evidence to point us to him, because Love had to be fair. If there were a code in our DNA, what about everyone born before genetic sequencing? If there were a book with the solar system thosands of years ago, what would stop an evil person from hiding/destroying it? If it were something you had to go to, what about the geographically isolated, imprisoned, or enslaved. If it were a train of logic, what about the uneducated, or mentally slow? Not to mention all the people born before schools. Love cannot give to one without giving to the other. So the key to salvation had to be something everyone has access to. The only thing is Faith. This is why God puts it upon your heart to learn about these things, even if it's only to criticize, or hate. God is everywhere, because Love is everywhere, and so is the devil, because hate is everywhere. They're in your head all the time, regardless of weather or not you accept that. They whisper inside your heart, giving you ideas. But more than that, they're inside everyone's heart. This is how they get things done. They corrordanate us like pieces on a chess board. The only difference is, we get to chose who's side we're playing for. At the end of our life, we go to that team's home base, Heaven, or Hell. A place where all that exists is those wavelengths. Hate, pain, anger, fear, darkness; or Love, Hope, Joy, Peace, Pleasure, Light. The choice is yours to make. But you cannot go to Heaven with hate in your heart. You must forgive, repent, and spread joy for those around you. These are sentient eternal controlling forces in our universe. Heaven and Hell are very real places, I've seen them. Those steps prime your soul for a meeting with God. Very literally. Once you've done all four, in that order, you get divine revelation, with all the evidence you'll ever need. They are, forgive your parents, brake down before Jesus, ask for forgiveness, and read the Bible. Step four takes three books to get the revelation. I recommend Genesis, Mathew, and then either Luke, Psalms, or proverbs. The order of the steps is important, step 1 has to come before step 3. I can state that for an absolute certainty that these steps always work. Please, take your salvation seriously. See for yourself. Do those steps. Jesus Christ is Lord. It's all True,

  • Why not educate people on the option to not eat meat? At least give those who are willing to make a change the information they need to switch to a healthy plant-based lifestyle. In my experience, the majority of people are unaware that it is even an option (as they believe that meat is essential, when it isn't), and even those who are aware often feel it isn't a realistic option, because they don't know how to do it (and so they don't even try). Just giving people information on how to eat plant-based could ease the pressure on the meat packing industry (by encouraging those who are willing to go plant-based).
